Absolute Perfection

There are so many people to thank and highlight from the Union League Club, but the first to be mentioned is our coordinator, Ken. When we think of everything Ken has done for us, the words superb, elegant, precision, creative all come to mind. He was extremely responsive to communications, also allowing us to communicate by FaceTime and email often which was greatly appreciated since one of us lived in a different state. We did the bulk of the planning for our wedding, and we had special requests primarily related to our morning Hindu ceremony and meal accommodations for the day. He quickly offered great suggestions and special food selections for both the luncheon and the dinner that helped blend our two cultures.

The day of, everything happened like clockwork from the moment it was 6am: morning refreshments were delivered, the hair stylist, makeup artist, and decorations team all showed up (Ken also helped with contacting and confirming with our vendors in the few weeks before the wedding), and we began without a hitch. Our Baraat and morning ceremony was phenomenal and the evening just as spectacular, with our florists and photographers creating and capturing everything to the fullest. Our guests were constantly telling us how enamored they were with the events and how happily full they were with top-notch drinks (including incredible mocktails!) and food. The day seemed to flow effortlessly in a way that we can only attribute to having the best people working with us.

With a family dinner on Friday night, two weddings, a luncheon, cocktails and reception on Saturday, and a family brunch on Sunday, we were so glad that the Club has such fabulous resources for creative food choices, rooms that are aligned with the tone and size of the various groups, and of course all supported by a phenomenal staff of people who are the ones who make it happen! From the precision planning of Ken and the Catering team, to the smiles and welcomes at the Front Desk, to the seamless execution of every meal, it was absolute perfection. To everyone at the Union League Club of Chicago, thank you so much for everything!

Exemplary Service & Unforgettable Experiences: A Wedding Planners Review of the Union League Club of Chicago

Working with Ken Severin and the Union League Club of Chicago was an absolute pleasure! As a former Director of Catering for The Drake and The Langham, I rarely come across individuals who match my level of passion and dedication. Ken, however, was a breath of fresh air.

His exceptional response rate and attention to detail ensured that every aspect of the event was perfectly coordinated. On the wedding day, everything ran like clockwork, thanks to Ken and his team. The banquet manager, Sergei, was always available, and the timeline was executed flawlessly.

Throughout the planning process and on the wedding day, every member of the Union League Club's team was incredibly kind and accommodating. Their professionalism and dedication to ensuring a seamless experience for both myself and my clients were truly commendable.

I am already looking forward to the opportunity to bring one of my clients to host their wedding at the Union League Club of Chicago in the future. Thank you, Ken, and the entire team, for an unforgettable experience!

Highest Praise for ULCC

The Union League Club of Chicago provided us with the perfect venue for our wedding. The ULCC offers the convenience of guest rooms and in-house catering, the elegance of the Lincoln Ballroom, and most of all, the hospitality of an incredible staff.

There’s no one at ULCC we are more grateful to than Ken Severin. From the time we booked our wedding with ULCC in 2019 until the final guest left the dance floor at our October 2021 wedding, Ken was there with us every step of the way. His knowledge and recommendations helped make planning a breeze. He’s the utmost professional and always had time to respond to our emails or take our calls in the two years he worked with us.

We loved the convenience of having our wedding at ULCC. We got ready in the guest rooms in the morning, where our entire wedding party enjoyed breakfast ahead of the big day. For the reception, the Lincoln Ballroom gave us a dramatic and historic setting to celebrate all night.

The two parts of our wedding reception that our guests remember most vividly are the food and the ULCC staff.

Our guests have told us the food was the best they’ve ever had at a wedding. Even our pickiest eaters were impressed. ULCC accommodated our guests with dietary restrictions and left everyone stuffed!

The staff – from the bartenders, to the servers, to concierge – were the friendliest and most hospitable. We appreciate how much everyone at ULCC did to give us a day we will never forget.

We have the highest praise for the ULCC.
