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!

We're so happy I chose Hu's yo help us out on our wedding day. Our wedding involved a lot of DIY and disconnected components. I dont have a single bad thing to say. They were amazing in every sense of the word. Here is some of what we needed help with: - making sure the whole space was set up and ready to go on the day of the wedding. - setting up the buffet and keeping it stocked with food. - descreatly working in the reception area while the ceremony went on in the same room - transforming the ceremony space into the dance floor. - keeping the space clean by cleaning up any spills, taking out the trash, and taking used plates from guests. - managing the bar and keeping it stocked,. - taking down the whole operation within one hour so the room looked like we had never been there. They did it all and probably did more things I'm forgetting to list. They made our whole wedding flow perfectly. No matter what kind of party you're throwing, I'm certain these guys will do an amazing job.

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;)

We cannot say enough great things about Heidi and highly recommend her wedding services to any other couples! Heidi served as our wedding coordinator in September 2017 and she was worth her weight in gold so that we could have a relaxing and elegant wedding. Thanks to Heidi we were able to truly enjoy our time with all of our guests many of whom had traveled from Europe and across the US to be with us. On the day of the wedding Heidi did an incredible and efficient job running our early morning rehearsal which immediately put everyone participating in the ceremony at ease. She and her two assistants were then present at our venue throughout the day coordinating the vendors as they arrived, setting up decor, and bringing us our bouquets for photos. She even sent me a few photos of the cake and decor as sneak peeks as we were out and about all day with our wedding party. Once we arrived at the venue everything looked absolutely perfect and she even had water set up for the wedding party as we got ready to walk down the aisle (she also had water, snacks, pain killers and whatever else anyone needed!). During the evening wedding Heidi kept everything to schedule and moved the guests seamlessly throughout the venue from the ceremony to the cocktail hour to dinner to dancing. She worked closely with the photographer, caterer, and musicians to make sure everything went to plan. If anything went wrong during the day or evening we did not know about it! At the end of the wedding she and her two assistants packed up all our boxes of decor/cake/leftover alcohol and took it to our hotel so our family and friends were able to go back to their hotels or to the after party with no worries. In addition to the actual wedding day, Heidi was wonderful from day one. After we decided to work together we met with Heidi early in the summer and showed her around our venue. A couple of weeks before the wedding she also came to our final walkthrough with our caterer. We also had multiple check-in calls the week leading up to the wedding to go through final details. During the week before the wedding she was in touch with all of our vendors to introduce herself and to work out any details which took all vendor management out of our hands. In short, we had a very detailed schedule and notes of how we wanted our wedding to run and look and Heidi executed it with precision and even helped us think of details we might not have thought of ourselves. We had 60 guests and wanted a personal, professional, and elegant Chicago wedding. So many guests commented on how smoothly everything went during the day and how much they enjoyed the pace and look of the evening. We were a very happy bride and groom!

My wife and I got married in October and we were referred to Style, Grace & Blossoms by a friend of ours. We want to thank Merna and Asmr so much for all of their hard work in helping create the most amazing night of our life. From day one, they met with us and tried to envision what we had in mind for our wedding reception. They worked with us over the next few weeks and made suggestions and showed us what it was going to look like. It was truly a collaborative effort which made our lives so much easier, because we had so many other things to think about and to take care of, in the months leading to our wedding day. Highly, highly recommended!! Keep up the excellent work, ladies. We wish you all the best with your business, and God bless you.

Kristen and Jill decorated our reception venue BEAUTIFULLY! They met with us during our final walk-through of our reception venue and executed our vision for the space perfectly, truly breathing life into it. Their clever touches with the decorations and their artistic finesse really made a difference – we got TONS of compliments on the attention to detail in our decorations. Kristen and Jill were the perfect solution for us, as we were getting married and doing photos beginning at 1 PM, but we couldn’t get into our reception venue to begin set-up until 2 PM. We had originally planned a very DIY wedding, but Kristen and Jill saved the day by decorating our reception venue for us while staying respectful of our original vision. Plus, they were affordable. We highly recommend!!!

We got married on New Years Eve 2016. Our guests are still talking about how beautiful our wedding was. Anna Lisa is amazing. From flowers, center pieces, table decor and much more she was a pleasure to work with. Through out the process Anna Lisa made sure we were stress free as well as checking in to make sure we were happy with how things would turn out. I can sometimes be a little indecisive, so when it came to picking things out Anna Lisa was right there to make us feel like we were making the right decisions. I shared my ideas with Anna Lisa and she is so creative she was able to create something even better. She was very accommodating and and professional. She made us feel confident that our wedding day would turn out beautiful. I recommend Anna Lisa to everyone I know!

We absolutely loved these girls! They are so helpful and amazing at what they do. I gave them my list of task items to get done for the day of my wedding and they handled it with ease! I didn't have to stress or worry about a thing, they took care of everything! I had so many complements from other guests about how helpful and professional they were. I defiantly recommend them to anyone who is looking for help with any kind of party!!!

As a bride who began my July 2019 wedding planning over 3 months ago, I have had my fair share of lack of responsiveness, unprofessionalism, lack of quality service and OUTRAGEOUS pricing from vendors/companies. In summary, from the SECOND I met Ms. Jackie she has been the polar opposite and phenomenal!!! She is very responsive, professional and an EXPERT at her craft!!! Her prices are very reasonable and for any bride, that is really important in addition to the #1 primary concern - no stress and not worrying! I needed to wrap up the final touches for my wedding and needed to locate a few vendors for the final touch items I needed to include decor. In minutes Ms. Jackie had me relieved that finally I had found someone who could bring my vision on decor together and reassurance that a team of professionals would be handling it!! In addition to that she sent me recommended vendors for EVERYTHING else I needed (a videographer, day of coordinator, florist and custom items) and in a matter of 1.5 hours, I was given what I needed most - relief and reassurance that I had found the right teams to handle one of the most important days of my life!!! Thank you so much for everything Ms. Jackie!!! It means so much to me. I highly recommend her and you would be crazy to book with anyone else. I will only be using Ms. Jackie for all my future events and her associated partners!! She is the best, so very sweet and a pure pleasure to work with!!!

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!

LaBelleVie catered our wedding reception in June. I could not have picked a better place. The food was delicious (we had an upscale style taco bar.) The bar they set up was fantastic! They brought a beer garden indoors, with an amazing assortment of cocktails.(we married in an old farm building so it really helped classy up the place)Chris Sutton and her staff worked with me on every thought or concern I may have had. They all really went above and beyond to make sure I had the most perfect wedding reception. I even used their beautifully decorated bar in Aledo IL. to take some of my wedding photos in.
