Absolutely Outstanding...Enough Said! - An Eventective User from Chicago, IL

My now-wife and I got engaged in late 2019 and started planning our large 130+ guest wedding shortly thereafter. We looked at a few venues in Chicago, and got the best vibe from the owner John, and the venue itself. His prices were also more competitive that other venues of equivalent quality. We loved that we had the optionality to host our ceremony in one of the upstairs halls, and then take our guests down into the beautiful cellar for our reception. John was super communicative and flexible and easy to work with right from the start, and his team's motto is to take as much stress away from the bride and groom during the wedding planning process. We initially planned to have our wedding in June 2020, but then delayed to late August due to COVID, and eventually July 2021, and for each delay, John did not charge us any extra fees and was accommodating to the sitatuation. Heading into 2021, the prices at the venue increased for the various offerings, typical of most companies coming out of the pandemic, but John honored our originally agreed upon prices in our contract we signed back in 2019, and we were very grateful for that! As the wedding approached, John was available via phone and email at a moment's notice, and he allowed us to host our ceremony rehearsal the night before at no extra charge too. The venue also accommodated us with special requests, like having easels available to hold up portraits we wanted to display, and having a projector to use during the best man speech. The bartenders, Joe and Phyllis, a married couple of 55 years, were absolutely wonderful and our guests loved them. The wait staff were also courteous and efficient throughout the night. My wife and I were so stressed that we could barely eat any of the dinner we picked out during our wedding night, but fortunately, the wait staff gave the extra food from the kitchen to my parents at the end of the night, and we were able to enjoy that food over the next week, and it was absolutely delicious all the way around! There were also vegetarian entree options that were individually served to each of our guests who requested that. We had so much fun we extended an extra hour on top of what we booked for the day. Our wedding couldn't have gone any better and we're super thankful for John and his team for hosting us!
