    Perfect venue for wedding reception

    My wife and I were married in October 2018. Our ceremony was up the street in the Alice Millar chapel, and we held our reception in the Woman's Club of Evanston. The Woman's Club ended up working out perfectly for us! Our cocktail hour was held on the first floor, and dinner & dancing was upstairs in the main banquet hall. The venue was beautiful, the staff was easy to work with, and I couldn't be happier with how it turned out.

    Our September wedding was at the Woman’s Club of Evanston and I worked with Dana to make our event come to life. She was both professional and fun to work with, and helped design and coordinate exactly what I wanted the day to look like. The team was extremely helpful and responsive to all questions throughout our year of planning. On the day-of, Michelle, the Manager, was our coordinator and she was the best. She went above and beyond and worked with all of our vendors to ensure everything flowed well and looked stunning. The venue is beautiful and all of the guests commented on how much they liked it. The stage was perfect for hosting a live band and the staff were very amenable to working with our band ahead of time to ensure they had everything they needed to perfrorm. Family and friends are still commenting on how much they loved the whole event and how easy it was to take public transportation to or park. Overall, we couldn’t be happier with how the day went or our experience planning. Thanks, Dana and Michelle!
