I can't say enough positive things about our experience with MAC and our coordinator, Gina. Gina:"Don't hire a day-of coordinator - I've got you covered" --and indeed she did. Our experience here was great, from the first meeting, all the way through to the days after, when she made sure we had all of our left-behind items in hand. The wedding was beautiful and everything went smoothly. The food was great and everyone was talking about it! And the staff--they were amazing, too. They went above and beyond the entire day to make sure everyone was comfortable, fulfilling every request from any of our guests. They even helped us get all of our flowers to the Fairmont next door that night so we could use them for brunch the next morning! Again, I can't say enough about what a great experience we had with them, and I would recommend MAC to any couple looking for a wedding venue!Sent on 08/02/2017

Best Decision for Our Day
We could not have picked a better venue for our wedding. From the moment we walked into visit while researching venues to the second the lights came on at our wedding every was fun and easy and so well done. Being on the 80th floor of the Aon Center is incredible in itself but what really stood out was our event director Sam who was genuinely excited for our special day. She answered every email, helped us think through all our options and was accommodating with our special requests as we worked through a multi cultural wedding. People are still talking about the food! Having an extremely well trained chef cooking everything right before it goes out made ALL the difference. We would redo this day 10 times over if we could. Everything was amazing.Sent on 06/29/2019
Awesome staff, great food, best views in Chicago. I love this place!
There's nothing that makes us happier than setting up our beautiful booth in one of the most beautiful rooms in the city. This place always takes our breaths away.
Fabulous views paired with exquisite service makes your event unforgettable. Emily Larson is on top of her game; as a vendor, I have seen the best and she is right up there!
