I very much enjoyed working with GCI in planning our wedding reception. They were very helpful and easy to work with--also very flexible for this scattered bride!

We got engaged in April and married in October! Accomplishing that was only possible because we found this great venue for our reception. It fit with our budget perfectly and the decor was so much nicer than your typical banquet hall. The food was also amazingly good and very accommadating (even preparing a completely different meal for one of our guests on the night of our event). We were very happy with our choice and enjoyed our celebration so much!

I also dealt with the coordinator being fired and we were not informed, but my impression was the first coordinator just wanted us booked and didn't care about talking the details. The new coordinator worked with me not only with all the details (including perfect seating planning) but also was friendly with things we left behind and didn't come back to pick up until weeks after the wedding. The food was tasty, the price was reasonable for all that we got, the location is beautiful, and since we had over 150 people we had the "mini" bar in the room that served beer, wine and soda. As for people going into the other room for the main bar I think people liked it because if they wanted a copnversation without having to talk over the dance music there was that room. The only issue we had was the ice sculpture we had as a present from a guest was put in this room instead of the main room. But overall I was very impressed with everything involved with this location for our wedding. Great for the price!

Golf Club of Illinois was BEAUTIFUL, and I was SO excited to have my wedding there - and a big part of that was the coordinator. She was enthusiastic and she KNEW what she was talking about Everytime I contacted her she was helpful and accomodating.

Fast forward to about 6 months out - we go to visit the florist recommended by the Golf Club and we find out that the coordinator had been fired, and we had not been informed.

We organize a meeting with the new coordinator, and while she was very nice, she was timid and uncertain. Once she took over, trying to get her on the phone was like pulling teeth. It wasn't that she was ignoring me, or avoiding me, it was that she was managing TWO golf clubs at the time, and was simply spread too thin.

When the wedding came, I hoped that she would be familiar enough with the protocol to make sure that my event ran smoothly, unfortunately she wasn't. The DJ (Chris Vittorio of Spin Productions, and Pastor Brandyn Simmons) ran the show, and I can't say enough wonderful things about them.

Additionally, the one of the bartenders was a COMPLETE menace. He was straight up RUDE (especially to the female guests), and gave everyone that came to the bar trouble.

On the flip side, the Golf Club is a BEAUTIFUL venue, and the food was great, the facilities manager was great, and the waitstaff was great.

I did like the location for the reception and it had a reasonable fee however there were some issues that I had with this vendor. We had discussed ahead of time things like making sure they don't start clearing tables before the end of the reception because I can't stand that. They did start putting out the candles on the table about an hour before the end of the reception and clearing away drinks when people were dancing. Also, we discussed that we would use their knife for the cake cutting and while the cake and we were right where we were supposed to be, there was no knife. So my husband and I stood there looking goofy waiting for a knife to cut the cake. Lastly, I tried to give the coordinator a list of the people's names with table numbers. She refused it and I did accidentally end up writting the wrong number on a couple guest's table cards. The coordinator did not have the list and so she could not help get them seated correctly. I was still outside taking pictures so I could not assist in fixing it but instead my sister had to handle the situation because the coordinator did not have the information. I would say this was an average banquet hall. And be aware that having the bar in a separate room means less people on the dance floor.
