VENDOR SUGGESTIONS NEEDED: Photographer, DJ and Florist!


    I know there are a ton of boards out there but with dial up internet it takes forever to get through them and they aren't always what I'm looking for.  I'm getting married at the Hyatt Lodge in Oak Brook Illinois in January 2011.  My fiance and I really need to find and book a photographer and dj and florist asap.  We want someone who will take tradiational but mostly photojournalistic pictures.  As for a DJ we want someone who will keep the dance floor packed all night long.  The flowers will be a minimum in the woodsy inspired wedding so that is the least of my worries right now. 

   My fiance and I are paying for everything ourselves and just graduated college so the budget is tight so anyone that is BUDGET FRIENDLY and in the area would be much appreciated.  With so many options, word of mouth suggestions and reviews would be super helpful.  THANKS!!

    I would not recommend my DJ and my photographer was from Milwaukee (DH's uncles company) however, my flowers were from Phillips in Downers Grove and were amazing! I worked there in high school and knew I would use them, but they went beyond what i expected. Ask for Pat, she is the manager there.

    Hey there.

    I am new but I loved our photographer!  Her website is http://allisonmayer.com and her prices are extremely reasonable.  $200-$1000 I think.

    I have found THEE best photographers in the world! It's a husband and wife team. Google Gina and Tony Photography and you will get to their website. They are also on facebook. I love them! they do beautiful work! They are a little pricy but it's well worth it. They are based out of Chicago.

    I would like to second Catherines Gardens.  Julie is WONDERFUL!  We were quoted a price 1/3 of what another florist quoted us for exactly the same thing.  She was kind helpful and patient.  If you're looking to book a limo check out Absolute Dream Limo.  They partner with Catherine's and you'll get a discount on flowers if you book both.
