Ahhh! Where do I begin? From the moment I walked into Cafe La Cave it gave me goose bumps and upon meeting Randy I knew I had found the perfect place for our wedding. So many other places were cold and rude and were just willing to offer you their room and food but with Randy we got something completely different. PASSION! Randy is detail oriented and loves his job. He is all about making every bride’s wedding dreams come true. He offered lots of creative ideas and really took the reins on making sure everything was coordinated elegantly. He referred me to the BEST vendors with who I was able to make my dream a reality. I had lots of ideas and visions (BLINGY, DREAMY, CLASSY, FUN) and we were able to make it all come together. I cried the moment I saw both the ceremony and reception rooms. They were stunning! We had the time of our lives. Everything was sheer perfection. The food was delicious (filet and chicken), the service was IMPECCABLE and the dance floor was packed. Friends and family are blown away by the venue and service provided. I was told it was the best wedding they had ever been to, the most beautiful and stunning, the best food they ever had at a wedding, their glasses were never empty, the service staff was friendly, patient and approachable, the list goes on and on. The staff also began to recognize my guests (in one instance my aunt didn’t even have to give her ticket to the valet, she turned around and her car was there). This is an event that will go down in history as one of the best! I cannot thank Randy and the crew at Café La Cave enough for helping our wedding dream come true! xoxoxoxo

I wish I could give Café La Cave a billion stars. My husband and I got married on 10/31/14 for a Halloween themed wedding. From the moment we walked into Café la Cave back in January we knew this was the right place for our special day. Kim and Randy became part of our family as we planned our big day. There is such attention to detail. We did not have a conventional wedding; in fact some family members were reluctant to the idea of a Halloween wedding. However, Randy made our wedding into the most beautiful, classy, romantic, and unique Halloween themed event. We have been getting several comments that it was the best wedding they had ever been to. Randy took it upon himself to ensure that Mark and I were on point with what was going throughout the evening. We did not have to stress once throughout the night about how things were going to happen. In fact, I am here to say that we had our wedding 10 months after being engaged and we did not feel stressed once throughout the entire planning process. It was thanks to Café la Cave that our event went perfectly, and become more incredible than anything I could have ever imagined. I am actually going to miss getting to spend time with Randy and Kim as they are some amazing people and really made us feel like we were the only event they had for the year. I should mention Randy even had his own daughter's wedding the month before ours and he still made time for every little phone call or email. I cannot say enough wonderful things about our wedding, the staff, and the entire venue. The food tasting was such a blast and Kim made the entire process fun and easy. Everyone working at Café la Cave takes it upon themselves to think of new ideas to make your day everything you want it to be. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Café La Cave! You honestly made our wedding the most perfect day of my entire life and I only wish we could re-live the day over and over again. If you are looking

Thanks to Randy and Carrie ---> E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G was P-E-R-F-E-C-T!!!
Our wedding couldn't be the success that it was without them.
Randy & Carrie are TRUE PROFESSIONALS.
During planning, Randy will work with you to stay within your budget. Listen to everything he has to say/suggests --- because he knows what he's talking about!
Randy is a natural and could do his job with his eyes closed and hands tied behind his back.
The ceremony and reception was BEAUTIFUL .... Lighting, drapes, tables ...
The ENTIRE staff is OUTSTANDING ... Very friendly, upbeat, attention to detail ...
The food was DELICIOUS ... The BEST food our guests every had at a wedding ... LOVED the pasta (done perfectly), filet & chicken~ INCREDIBLE!
The patio was a GREAT bonus and provided another place for fun and conversation.

Wow - Café La Cave was the perfect place to host my wedding. It's a family run business and Randy and Carrie have a TON of passion for what they do and provided soooooooo much help along the way. Randy has a lot of expertise planning a wedding and made great suggestions of how to set up the room, the look / feel of the centerpieces, the perfect linens, the flow of the evening and so much more. Carrie was super responsive to every one of my emails and had so much patience for all my questions along the way. ALL of the guests raved about the food (one person even said it's the best food he's eaten anywhere in this whole life) and the service was impeccable. A lot of people said it's the best wedding they've even been to and it's all because of Café La Cave. In addition to this Randy has a lot connections in the industry and he helped me find uplighting, centerpieces, linens, and chairs at a great price. Best of all - all this amazing food, service, and TLC come at a very reasonable price. Book your wedding here - you'll be happy you did!

Hands down the best venue outside of the Chicago city limits. We have never seen a more beautiful set up. Randy was very professional and extremely easy to work with. There's an obvious reason why he is recruited all over to work on weddings. He made our ceremony and reception more amazing than we could have ever imagined. And because of all his experience and involvement our day was completely stress free and we were able to enjoy the reception with our family and friends. He was there to guide us and make sure everything was done smoothly and in a timely manner. In addition to Randy, the staff at la Cave were extremely professional as well. Everyone worked as a team to make our wedding special for us and our guests. And the food was amazing! Our guests raved that it was the best they ever had. Overall, our wedding is something that we will never forget because it was the most beautiful and enjoyable experience for all involved.
