We hired Standing Ovation for our wedding reception, and it was the best choice we could'v made. My husband and I put off hiring a DJ because we were afraid of the cost, and entertained the idea of creating our own mix, but we sigh with relief every-time we reflect on the perfect organization, professionalism, and fun that was provided from Standing Ovation. Our DJ was the best. He helped us enjoy our wedding day more than we could'v imagined, especially if we had to worry about the music. The timing and music was perfect for some great memories . I really admire this company for coming through even though we were so indecisive. Going with this DJ company made our day!

I am not a flower person-- I don't care for roses, daises, peonies, etc. When I told Angie with Blossom & Branch Designs this, I was expecting to still be pushed in that direction because, you know, it's a wedding afterall, and that's the protocol/expectation, right? To my delight, she started showing us pictures of plants and flowers I'd never seen before and never thought could be used in a wedding/reception (don't worry, she still does the traditional and really cool stuff too). We clicked and she was absolutely a joy to work with. The day of, Angie was was cheerful, calm and collected (it was raining...for an outdoor wedding) which was a blessing as everyone else was...not. I probably gave her leeway than most brides with the centerpieces, but after several conversations I trusted her to handle almost anything. The most compliments we received after the wedding were on the flowers and the centerpieces that she did-- not the music, food, dress, alcohol, games... everyone was raving about the centerpieces and flowers. Seriously, if you're getting hitched, there is no one that is better or better to work with! She is also super nice, easy to get along with, and pretty hilarious to top it off!

Because my wedding was outside, in the rainy June season in good ol Chicago, I went back and forth with tent sizes, tent quantity, and side walls. As much of a pain as I was, Stacie made sure every request was fulfilled and every question I had was answered. She made me feel confident that my wedding would turn out perfect, rain or shine, and that she would do everything to make sure I had the proper tenting. It didn't rain, however, I am still so thankful for how easy and wonderful they were to work with! Thank you for being a part of making my wedding better than I dreamed;)

Aly was the first person to reply. After talking to her for only a few minutes I knew that she would be the person that would plan my wedding. Aly has her own business and a vested interest in the success of my wedding. I didn't want a large corporation I wanted the personal touch that I knew Aly would bring. Aly was on board from the start she listened and took particular note of the things that were important to me as well as offering suggestions that were so helpful. I had a plan and Aly worked with me to make my day perfect. Aly was available 24 /7 via email text as well as by phone. Aly was in constant touch with me to ensure all of what I wanted was perfect down to the last detail. Nothing was too much trouble. I had to do nothing except let her know my wishes, she did it all. I had a small intimate wedding but I have no doubt that Aly could plan a wedding for 35 or 350. Her attention to detail was incredible. Aly made sure that everything was in place from the caterers to the tent suppliers. The food was fantastic cooked on site. The food Vendor was so accommodating and beautifully displayed. Everything was as I asked. The network of Vendors Aly has is phenomenal I had a range to choose from. I was not alone at any time. If I needed any help or information about anything from flowers, accessories, dresses, centerpieces, you name it Aly knew all about it. Aly made arrangements to have my centerpieces made to my specifications. They were beautiful. Aly went above and beyond in every way. My dream wedding came true only because of her. Aly knows her profession and does it exceptionally. I believe it's because she loves what she does as well as she wants the bride to have the experience of a lifetime on her special day. She succeeded. I will scream praises for Aly to anyone who will listen she is just the best. Thank you Aly. I am forever grateful. Love you Aly. πŸ’“πŸ’žπŸ’πŸ’˜πŸ’•πŸ’–πŸ’—

Lora helped me to create my farytaile wedding. With reasonable pricing, fresh flowers, and her views everything was perfect. Lora really did a great job with my flowers, just beyond my expanctation. Also, she was always open to any of my ideas about other decorations (and you know how picky brides are). On my wedding day she helped me to set everything, so I didn't have to worry about anything. Beautiful fresh flowers, Floral arch, candles, you name it, she has it. She also decorated our church with beautiful flowers. But the thing that I loved the most is the back dropping, with the lights, she did an amazing job! It was my pleasure to work with her, I will certainly work with her again for any other occasion.

Thankful to Ms Profit, she saved my wedding day as my initial coordinator backed out a week before my wedding, she took over decorating, coordination and handling all my vendors. My day was beautiful no one could tell that she stepped in last minute she ran my day as if it was her own wedding.

I am so thankful that I had Escandar Group for my day-of-coordination on my wedding day! From the pre-wedding conversations and planning, to the rehearsal, to the ceremony, to the reception, Escandar Group provided exceptionally professional services that were well thought out, organized, and perfectly delivered. I worked with Emmanuelle and she not only did a fantastic job on all the anticipated events and moments, but also saved the day when I forgot my bouquet at home. She somehow made it all the way to the other side of town, fighting World Series traffic in the process, and back in time to hand me my bouquet for the pictures. I have received so many compliments on how smooth the wedding went and I have Escandar Group to thank for that!

Des did my make up (the bride), my bridal party, my mother, and my now wife's make up for our wedding day. She offered to do a trial for all of us the day of my shower as well. We all loved how easy she is to work with, she listens, and is open to feedback. My make up lasted through out the day and night. I even had an outdoor wedding ceremony and reception, and I sweat a lot. I was very pleased at how long it lasted and how beautiful I looked during the ceremony. I would recommend Des to any bride! I also will use Des again for any time I need make up done. She is professional, timely, easy to talk to, quality make up, amazing talent, and great pricing.

I had a great time working with Dana for my July 2017 wedding at Salvage One and would highly recommend her as a day-of coordinator. Since she worked at Salvage One, she knew the venue well and knew what would work and what wouldn't. She helped me fine tune the details for the day-of activities and helped set up all my DIY decor. She made sure everything ran smoothly the day of so that my family or I wouldn't have to worry about a thing. I was able to relax and enjoy my wedding. Thanks, Dana!
