A Great Wedding Venue, An Eventective User from Chicago, Illinois

If you are getting married, or even just want to have some sort of special event, I strongly recommend Pazzo's Weddings and Events. Its an amazing place with a wonderful view. They have great service and pay attention to detail. It has a beautiful glass roof, with large towering palm trees. It even has a two story fountain, which looks very impressive. In my opinion, it provides one of the best atmospheres for a wedding that you can achieve. I just love the way everything looks, and feels. It is almost like a dream. Not only the scenery, but the people there are very generous, and want you to have the best wedding ever. They really go all out for your special day. The catering was great, the service was amazing, and the atmosphere was just perfect. I couldn't have asked for a better wedding. They have won several awards for providing such a wonderful wedding venue, and the best part about it all is, it is very inexpensive! I was shocked at how cheap it was for such great quality, such amazing service. I wouldn't go anywhere else, it was just that good. Pazzo's even allows you to customize the catering menu, so that you can have whatever food you like served at your wedding! I thought that was just great. The staff there was extremely friendly, and not once did I catch them not smiling, or seemingly not enjoying their job. Pazzo's Weddings is definitely a great way to go if you are looking for an amazing wedding.

Pazzo's at 311, a Great Downtown Chicago Wedding Location, An Eventective User from Chicago, IL

In 2008, we were married at Pazzo's at 311 in the Chicago Loop, and it was a fantastic wedding. We had two major reasons for choosing it: First, it was about equal distant between family in the Chicago suburbs and in Northern Indiana. Even though it was in the heart of the city, it was easy to get to and parking wasn't that big of a problem, as there were plenty of garages available, especially on a Saturday night. The second reason we decided on it was because it was a simply beautiful space. The palm trees and giant statue, along with greenhouse style construction made our summer wedding feel like it was outdoors, with the benefit of a climate controlled environment. The space allowed us to have both the ceremony and reception in one location. After the reception, guests were moved upstairs for cocktail hour, while the main floor was transformed into party mode. The food was excellent and the bartenders and servers seemed to be quite competent. We didn't receive any guest complaints about them, so I can only assume they were great all-around. For the main course we had a petite filet and chicken marsala combo, which saved the problem of deciding between the two for every guest. There were two courses before the main one, a tortellini and a salad. Dinner was capped off by ice cream, cake, and a sweets buffet. We really did not have any issues with the entire process. It may have been a little pricey, but that's to be expected for a high-end venue, and especially one downtown. Overall, we loved our wedding, and were very happy with Pazzo's.
