A Dream Wedding at The Westin O'Hare

The wedding team at The Westin O'Hare was wonderful to work with from the start of our planning process until the big day! Jessica P. made the booking process seamless and was so helpful in working out the details of our event contract. Lasandra B. was an incredible asset to us along the way and ensured that our vision came to life! She put so much time and effort into making our day special and we are forever grateful. The Grand Ballroom was a stunning backdrop for all of our friends and family to gather and celebrate with us. During our reception, the service was exceptional and everything came together just as we imagined.

Westin O'hare Dream Wedding

Having our wedding at the Westin O'Hare was our dream wedding. The process from planning to the actual wedding was amazing. It all started with Jessica. From the very beginning, Jessica was so responsive to our questions. She stayed later than her usual work time to give us a tour of the Grand Ballroom and Guest Rooms She was a big part of us choosing Westin O'Hare in the first place. No matter what questions we asked, she was able to find us an answer.

Since we had to postpone our wedding one full year due to the pandemic, Westin O'Hare reassured us and help eased our minds. They honored everything we had on the prior contract. This was great because we heard of things not going to plan on other weddings we attended.

On the actual wedding day, everything was perfect. Jessica and the staff made sure everything was perfect. Jessica especially would check on us and gave us the time to take it all in and enjoy.

We truly appreciate everything Jessica and the Westin O'Hare staff did for us and recommend them to everyone!

The best team at the Westin O'hare!

Having our reception at the Westin was the best decision of our wedding. I have nothing but praise for all the work everyone at this hotel did to make our reception perfect. Jessica P was who we worked with for the majority of the planning and BOY was she great! So responsive and detailed and not to mention so pleasant to work with. She was so nice. I know for a lot of brides responsiveness is important so we don't freak out for too long or working with someone nice so you don't have bad energy. I had none of those worries while working with Jessica. We also had a special request for an ice cream sundae bar and they executed it perfectly. Jessica made sure we got the green mint chocolate chip we requested which I thought was very nice. The food was great also! All our guests said they enjoyed their meals. The whole team on the wedding were so accommodating. Also this holel just recently renovated their rooms so everything in this hotel is very clean and pretty and modern! One of the main reasons we chose this venue was because the grand ballroom was very elegant and formal with tall ceilings. The renovated hotel was an added bonus! 100% recommend!
