    My husband and I never imagined we would have our reception at a hotel, let a lone our ceremony but when choosing Embassy Suites we knew there was no way we could see us getting married anywhere else. From start to finish they made everything so easy and included so many things in their packages. The hotel guests rooms all recently just got redone as well as the ballroom's and conference rooms. Everything was always clean and maintained when we were there for meetings or tours and we always felt welcomed. We stayed at the hotel from Thursday-Sunday and the entire time we were there all of the staff were very sweet and always acknowledging our presence and congratulating us the entire weekend! Whenever I had a problem or question, Danielle and her team were there every step of the way to come up with a solution or with an answer. I personally am a catering manager for a company in my town so I had high expectations for the day of and Danielle and her staff blew my mind. I was taken away when I saw everything and seriously lost my breath and almost cried. The entire process was everything and more then what I expected and I wouldn't have done any of it any other way. Thank you for being such a blessing to work with and bringing our dream day to life!!

    These people were amazing. We were the only wedding for the weekend (they only do one a weekend) and everyone knew us by Friday (the wedding was Saturday). The service was amazing and everything went flawlessly. The food was amazing and the entire experience was wonderful. I highly recommend this venue. Although it is not cheap, it is in downtown Chicago where nothing is. My family got upgraded to lake view rooms on high floors which were great.

I've been doing Chicago weddings and events for over six years, and weddings hold a special place in my heart. My purpose is not just helping with venue and catering, but to give my couples piece of mind throughout the planning process. From helping with managing the timeline, to coordinating vendors, I truly want to be a resource to make the planning process as smooth as possible. We have a fantastic banquets team that truly believe in delivering the highest level of service. There's nothing better than seeing my couples on the big day, worry-free, full of love, and excited to say "I Do".
