“Our wedding was an absolute delight. They truly take care of everything! I received so many compliments about how much the guests loved the food, the cupcakes, the gorgeous venue in general. Many of my friends couldn’t stop raving about how much fun they had. My husband and I are from Chicago but honestly wouldn’t dream of having our wedding anywhere else.”
