Venue Reviews- Part 1 (if it pastes)

Venue: Odyssey Country Club- (A-)  Loved the venue because of it’s beautiful floor to ceiling windows.  We used the Terrace Ballroom on the lower floor, so we were the only party on that floor.  Service was great and they had to deal with me adding in a heater for the patio last minute.  The only gripe I had was the day of the wedding I had requested a vegan meal for a table and they gave her a vegetarian meal.  I spoke to the manager, who wasn’t very present that day and it was resolved.  I was just severely annoyed that I had to deal with that during my reception. Photographer: VRAI- Molly Grace (A+++) (pending final pics)  Seriously I have never been so amazed by any photographers work than hers.  She is fun and loud and spontaneous.  She was so funny and my bridal party loved her.  I had so many compliments about her.  Even some of my family asked for her information for their photography needs.  I can’t wait to have her photograph other big milestones in my life and my families.  I would highly recommend.  See www.vraiphoto.blogspot.com   (micheal and Sherri wedding) Her packages seem a little pricey but they were worth every penny! DJ: Max with Style Matters- (A+++)  I’m so happy we signed them, we met with max( over the phone since we’re long distance) and he humored us through the whole process.  He kept everyone on the dance floor all night and even accepted our last minute requests.  I would highly recommend String Quartet – Style Matters-String Theory- (A+)  Simply beautiful, I didn’t get to hear the first half hour of them play, but DH said they were amazing and I almost cried when I heard them as I walked into the church.  Amazing! Highly Recommend Dress- Eva’s Bridal-Orland Park (C-) Wonderful experience picking out my dress and bridesmaid dresses.  Then as the day got closer, they couldn’t tell me when it would be in, and if it would be in on time.  I thought I would have to buy a new dress, at one point for a whole week my dress was missing (poof! Gone in midair) Finally got the dress less than 4 weeks before the day.  For having ordered them In December for my October wedding I though they would be more organized.  Do Not Recommend. Florist- Bella Flori (Frankfort)- (A+++) Seriously I’m in love with this florist, her work is simply amazing.  I got so much for so little.  She humored me with the changes and add ons and set up the reception room more beautiful than I had envisioned. Highly Recommend. Trolley- Chicago Rolls Royce- (A)  No complaints, showed up clean and on time.  Dressed nicely and was very kind.  Recommend. Hair and Make-up: Synergy Hair and Makeup Design- I’ve been going here for my hair for years, they also did my sisters.  I was very happy with my hair and makeup for both the trial and the day of.
