Going Above and Beyond in 19 Days
When I called Michael Dubina, the Executive Events Manager at the Drake Oak Brook, with only 19 days left before our wedding, I did not think that our dream wedding would be possible. However, I was quickly proven wrong. From the moment I spoke with Michael, I knew that we would be taken care of. Michael went to extraordinary lengths to make sure it was our dream wedding. Everything from the decorations to the table placement was handled with the utmost care. Michael treated us as if we were family. This is something that every couple should expect when working with the family owned Drake. I truly cannot be any more appreciative and grateful for Michael and his staff. He was able to give us our dream wedding in a matter of 19 days. I cannot imagine what he is capable of putting together with a year of planning. Michael and the Drake will always have a special place in our hearts for all of their work. We cannot recommend it enoughSent on 12/16/2020

Every part of our experience with The Drake was first class.Sent on 11/19/2020
From the first day we stepped into the hotel for our initial tour, we were blown away at the friendliness, attentiveness, and professionalism of the entire wedding staff. Throughout the entire planning process, they were clear and communicative, and always made us feel as though we had everything we needed and more.
When COVID hit and we had to adjust our day, they clearly outlined our options and worked with us to make sure our big day would still be everything we wanted it to be (or as close as possible).
On our wedding day, we were blown away with how smooth everything went. The professionalism of the staff and safety measures put in place made all of our guests feel welcome and safe. Even with a last minute shift from our ceremony moving from outside to inside due to weather, the entire process was seamless.
To this day, our guests continue to rave about how beautiful the venue was, how AMAZING the food was, and how great of a time they had.
Finally, our wedding coordinator Michael deserves a special shoutout for how unbelievably professional, personable, and helpful he was. If you work with him, you'll be in great hands.

AMAZING location to host any event! The service and food is beyond fantastic! The ambiance and decor is the perfect backdrop for all occasions. We especially love the natural light of the terrace, combined with the stunning blown glass artwork in the Flower Room.....just lovely to photograph!
