Chef Eric was personable & great conversationalist, professional, service perfectly prepared including serving each course, food was outstanding, kitchen was left neat and clean, including removal of trash from kitchen into trash bin. This was perfect for our 50th Wedding Anniversary
We worked with Allen for everything, we recently moved to Texas but our wedding of 150 was in the Chicagoland area. He was great to work with, extremely responsive and had great ideas for menu and serving options for us. We had a buffet appetizer and a BBQ buffet dinner, Allen even worked out a brisket carving station for us. We had rave reviews on all the food! His staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We worked out having 4 people who would man the buffets and our dessert table, clean off the tables, set up a coffee station and package all the food up for us at the end. It went so smoothly we couldn't be happier with the service and hospitality! Would definitely recommend them for any event!!
We hired Chic Chef to cater our wedding and it was a great success. Chic Chef made several changes to their standard menu items to better suite our tastes and the food was delicious. Ravi did a great job working with us to hammer out the day-of details and arranged for the needed rentals of tables, chairs, linens, etc.... When the Chic Chef crew showed up the day of they were well dressed and super attentive to our needs. Ravi did a great job coordinating with our day of coordinator to make sure everything went as we envisioned. Ravi and his crew also flipped our ceremony space over to dining very quickly. At the end of the evening Chic Chef did a great job cleaning up after the reception. Several of our friends and family have made remarks about the food being the best they have every had at a wedding and the service was excellent. We definitely recommend Chic Chef.
Meeting with John was a great experience!! Looking forward to our wedding and his services
I cannot say enough good things about Nicole! She is amazing. She was hired to photograph our small elopement ceremony in Lake Forest, IL. Pre Wedding: Nicole was easy to contact. Got back to me right away and answered any questions I had. She also remained very flexible and supportive when changes came up. I was from out of town and she even updated me on the weather in the city! She has a lot of experience so she was able to help me make sure I had everything I needed and offered helpful suggestions. Wedding: Nicole arrived on time, was very supportive and ready to shoot! She wasted no time getting started. She was very helpful with putting us in the correct poses and finding beautiful spaces to get the right shot! She was also really great at getting my family together and making sure I had all the picture combinations I wanted! She really pays attention to what YOU want. She remembered everything we discussed before about the type of pictures I wanted. It feels like its your wedding and not the wedding someone else wants you to have. She really knows what she's doing and is super sweet! Post Wedding: Nicole was always in touch keeping me updated on the status of the pictures. She was very clear on when we could expect our pictures and even offered us a very nice preview on her blog:) Summary: If you hire Nicole for ANY photography session you will not be disappointed. I cannot say enough about how she made the wedding experience so much easier for me. There is a lot going on the day of and it felt great knowing I didn't have to worry about the pictures! I felt like I have known her a lifetime. She got along with everyone and they all LOVED her. She had everything covered and the pictures were the most beautiful I have ever seen and the quality is amazing! Thank you so much Nicole! James and I forever appreciate you!
5 stars is not enough. It should be 10. Philip did an amazing job for our 25th wedding celebration. No complaints whatsoever.
Mark officiated our wedding in Naperville, IL in July 2016. He offers a great presentation with flexibility to cater to couple's specific needs- all at a very reasonable rate. His prepared introductions and readings were lovely and we were easily able to edit parts to add a more personal touch to the officiant speech. He did a great job helping us coordinate the procession at both the rehearsal and actual ceremony. We highly recommend Mark to officiate your wedding! - Matt and Courtney
Very professional and she facilitated a lot of support due to my craziness organizing the wedding. Erika, thank you!!
I had never gotten my makeup professionally done prior to my wedding. Monique was great! She took the time to get to know my preferences and experiences with makeup and worked with me to ensure I felt comfortable. My mom who never wears any makeup,also decided to get her makeup done once she saw my transformation. I received lots of compliments and my wedding pictures came out awesome! Thanks Monique!
We had Emil for our wedding on February 20, 2015. He was right on time and started taking pictures right away. He was extremely awesome. He was showing me the pictures as he was taking them to show me what we needed to do to get the best pictures. We gave him so little to work with and he was extremely creative. We were missing people from the wedding party and instead of wasting time, he just started taking more pictures. we can't wait to share the pictures with our family and friends. My husband and I were trying to go low cost, and we got a bargain. Thank you Emil for helping make our special day so smooth and worry free. And for putting up with my insane bridal party and family!
Martina did a fantastic job on my daughter's wedding. I could not be more pleased. It was the only thing that went right during her wedding. The groom's family did their best to sabotage the wedding. Martika's calm presence made the situation less devastating for us, even when the Mom was yelling out inappropriate comments during the ceremony. I could never have made it through the event without her. She spent time getting to know us and came away feeling like we made a friend and not just a photographer. She did an excellent job of explaining to my skeptical unknowledgeable daughter the services that were available to her so that the pictures told her story. She checked out the event site the day before and they both became more comfortable with her and the camera. She responded very well despite the constant conflict from the grooms family making this event devastating and unbearable for myself, the mother of the bride. No one could have done a better job under these terrible circumstances. Martina truly went way above and beyond given this unfortunate situation.
Traci was absolutely amazing. I am so grateful she was able to assist and very last minute. I loved makeup, it did not feel caked on and lasted all day for an outdoor and hot day. Thank you Traci for all that you did for my wedding day and I look forward to using you again!
Henry was amazing throughout the entire process of planning our wedding reception, from the first moment I came across his website to his announcing of the last song of the wedding night. He took the time to promptly and enthusiastically respond to all of my questions and emails and check up on us periodically while also getting in touch with our venue representative and photographer. Henry carried that great enthusiasm to the wedding day - from the moment we stepped into the venue we could tell that he used his sharp eye and utmost care to assure that the setting would be perfect. The uplighting was brilliant and our requested monogram that shined on the wall was a delightful touch. The songs that he played throughout the dinner pleasantly surprised our guests and set the mood for the dancing portion of the night. Henry kept the energy going throughout the entire evening, reading the crowd to choose the most appropriate music and accommodating the song requests we had entered in his user friendly customer portal. We loved how he mixed the songs so that they flowed together seamlessly so that ourselves and our guests could dance the night away. We highly recommend A Touch of Class DJ Service for your wedding reception! ~Stephen & Janelle
Personable fun and intertaining for wedding I attended. He is a knowledgable dance instructor with years of experience. Great for events!!
Matt DaMattrix did a great job DJing at my sisters wedding. We was very accomdating since we had requested for him to play music from 3 different cultures/languages!
Milan, Ana, and Jelena have been amazing to work with and we haven't even had our wedding yet. So far, we've gotten our engagement pictures back and they were exactly what we wanted. We really didn't want anything overly "posed" and were thinking for very natural photos and Milan did exactly that. They have also been very flexible to work. We could not be more thankful that we decided to go with WS Photography.
We first met Gonzo back in 2011 when he was the DJ for my cousins wedding. He did such an amazing job and we had a blast because of all of the different music he played. When my now husband and I got engaged, we immediately thought of DJ Gonzo. He did an absolutely FABULOUS job at our wedding. He played all of the music we wanted from the top hits of English music, to the most fun Spanish music, and even threw in some Greek music to honor my husband's heritage. Our family and friends raved how much fun they had dancing the night away and that this was the best music that they've heard at a wedding in a long time. Gonzo was very professional from the moment we met him until the day of the wedding. He also provided a large screen for our family and friends to view a slide show that we compiled. I highly recommend Gonzo for any events you may have!
Kevin was great to work with and gave us a beautiful wedding video that perfectly captured the highlights of our wedding. Kevin was timely on the day of the wedding and responsive to all my questions and concerns leading up to the day. We could not have asked for anything better. Great job!!
If you want professional and the best quality that a picture can offer then look no further. The artistic creativity that he has except no substitute with Chris the picture speaks unlimited volumes. Punctual and an eye for detail, thank you so much you made our wedding last for years to come with the moment's you captured, just wonderful.
The Amazing Aga! I just had my trial done, she worked with my hair so well. She also threw in some clip ins for me which aren't always the easiest to work with. I am so incredibly impressed with her work. Can't wait for my wedding day in late September, I know she will make me feel beautiful!
Bill has a huge collection of music and the guests were very impressed with the variety of lights used during our wedding reception.
