    Palais - Romantic-Exquisite-Stunning Venue

    Everything was FABULOUS - the most beautiful venue for a reception. Loved it all!! From the moment we selected the Palais we were given excellent advice on vendors and what would work best at the venue. The Palais even accomodated us on short notice - like 2 days - for a tasting because we were in town. The food was phenomenal...even with speeches running late and the plated food sitting for a while - it was fabulous and they scurried to get hot food on the tables. The reception and wedding were so beautiful that we have received glowing thank you notes from several of our guests!! The Palais worked with all vendors and we never even checked on a detail the day before or the day of the wedding/even with a Chicago Band. It was smooth as silk. There were plenty of Bartenders and never a long line at the bars. It was beautiful and magnificent. Truly the most beautiful wedding I have been too...and my daughter said it was her dream. Great advice from the staff at the Palais throughout the process...very direct...to the point...meetings were organized and wonderful assumptions/recommendations were made when we did not know better. Responsiveness was perfect. I just left Richelle a message after the wedding saying..."WOW - I was speechless and so were my guests...I literally had at least 6 friends just tap me on the shoulder and say only a sincere one word "WOW" - when we entered the ballroom! A magical night! There were items that we just trusted to Richelle at the Palais like we had selected uplighting on the walls...but we mentioned that after the flowers were in there and the candles...she could decide with the flower vendor if the uplighting was even needed. I trusted her to decide if it was not needed...or to change the selected colors around the sides....It was all just magnificent. I completely trusted her with her recommendations. The groom's mother was an executive and so was her husband and she even commented that she had been to alot of really nice receptions but this venue was probably the most beautiful room she had been in for a party...with the tables set, flowers, band....etc. I agree and loved it all. Thank you for the perfect evening!

    Wonderful!!

    Wonderful! Richelle was responsive, organized, and a calming presence amongst the action of the day. I felt comfortable trusting her to 'make things happen.'
