Thank you to Elizabeth! After a day of taste testing different venues we arrived at Genetti Hotel. We were looking for a venue that had a hotel within the same building due to the fact that 90% of our guests were from out of town. I knew we had found what we had been looking for after our initial meeting with Elizabeth, not only was the food amazing & the venue extremely clean and beautiful, our ultimate deciding factor was Elizabeth herself. We no longer lived in the area so we were planning the wedding long distance from Chicago. One of the most important things to us was being able to work with someone at the venue who would be able to respond to our calls and emails whenever we had questions (believe me there was a million). Not only would Elizabeth return my email/calls as soon as possible, she never seemed annoyed with the number or times we called/ emailed. She was so nice and helpful. The venue was absolutely gorgeous with so many ballrooms to choose from, we had a hard time picking one out. The hotel staff were also very friendly and helpful. We couldn’t believe that housekeeping cleaning the entire suite the bridesmaids got ready in after they had left for the ceremony and by the time they came back in a hour to touch up hair and make up before the reception downstairs, the room was spotless. On the day of the wedding Elizabeth was a lifesaver, not only did she decorate the entire ballroom way above our expectations, she was also extremely helpful keeping us on track with our timeline of the night and making sure everything went smoothly. She went above and beyond accommodating our guest. One of our guests had just had her wisdom teeth removed the day prior, due to the recovery and pain she couldn’t eat much of the food. After I told Elizabeth about the situation, she went out of her way to get the guest soup and other soft foods which weren’t on our menu. Wow! Also our bar tender Mary was also amazing! Thank you to everyone at Genetti Hotel!!Sent on 06/11/2018

Genetti's Oyster wedding was amazing! Lindsay was fabulous helping us with every little detail to get it perfect, and she succeeded! The up-lighting was amazing and the room looked just like how I pictured the perfect wedding to be. The food was OUTSTANDING! I loved the vallet for our guests, butter service, suite for 2 nights for my husband and I, and having everything included so we only had to pay one price for food, drinks, linens, chairs, cake, flowers, and everything else that was included that is typically not. Guests still keep telling my husband and I that our wedding was one of the best wedding they have ever been too. I highly recommend an Oyster wedding for a beautiful, elegant wedding!Sent on 10/02/2016

We always enjoy photographing events at the Genetti. The service is top notch and the staff is always very accommodating. The ballroom is amazing and there is enough space for larger wedding parties. It's definitely one of favorite locations to photograph.
