We had heard good things about Engaging Events, which is run by a WONDERFUL woman named Amy! She had a bubbly personality and an out of this world vision for the event! When we informed her we did not want something too elaborate, she started from scratch with some very classy ideas! We spent a LOT of time, naturally, with Amy, who was more than willing to go the extra mile! I remember one night I could not sleep because I was unsure about a certain aspect of the reception, so I called Amy in the middle of the night. Not only did she pick up, but she came over, brought some coffee and we got started on revisions! She truly aimed to please!

Kelly’s is notorious for having the best service, best prices and most elegant fleet in the area, so naturally we went with them! They offered us a multitude of gorgeous and elegant services which we were not aware of! They had us come in, check out each one individually to see what best fit our needs and even let us ride along for a test run! Once we had chosen what we wanted we were happy! However when the time came to enter the limo, we were amazed to see all sorts of additions, including champagne and a stocked bar! It was unbelievable and definitely set the mood for the rest of the evening!

Bellecourt Manor is a renovated, historic building located in beautiful downtown Belleville so it was an ideal location for the reception. The building is unbelievably elegant! The walkway was welcoming, with beautiful flowers and artwork. The dining hall was extremely large and open, despite our crowd of nearly 250! They had set up a large, wooden planked dance floor which easily held 50+ guests comfortably. The band had their own stage, as did the DJ, so no one was cramped at all! Their was a separate hors d’oeuvres room next to the bar, which was perfect for socializing away from the music. In addition, there was a separate room for gifts and extra seating if needed. The bar was very large and with 4 bartenders, no one had to wait for a drink! The food was excellent and there were absolutely no problems or complaints! It was truly a fairytale wedding reception at Bellecourt Manor!

Deborah was unbelievable in coming up with the perfect hairstyle. I did not want an exaggerated up-do, rather something simple and elegant, which was definitely the theme of the wedding! It did not take long before she knew exactly what I wanted! Deborah was AWESOME, not only in her styling skills, but also personality and service. She offered champagne and asked if their was ANYTHING else I would need! My hair looked better than I could ever have imagined! Thanks Deb!

The flower arrangements really was one of the MAIN concerns for the wedding, because I feel they really set the mood. The ladies Grimm and Gorly were extremely helpful and knowledgeable as far as matching our color scheme. The arrangements they came up with were spectacular, and the vases and containers they used were VERY original and innovative! BRAVO!

We had actually been to a party before where NME had performed and loved the work they did, so it was an obvious choice! We DID NOT know, however, how much they could personalize the music! They had gone out and contacted friends and family, trying to find certain songs that were sentimental to us, aside from those which we had already supplied! When the song that we first danced to 4 years ago came on our jaws dropped because we could tell by the smile on his face he had planned it! The music was great ALL night!

The motto as Wedding Wonderland is “Simply The Best” and they were NOT kidding! The owners, Michael and Bridget, were beyond helpful from step one, making sure we got exactly what we wanted! The decorators had wonderful ideas. We wanted something simple, yet elegant. When we saw initial sketches we were very excited, because it was just what we wanted, but when we actually saw the cake it brought us to tears! The most unbelievable work ever!

The bachelorette party was beyond all expectations! We decided to go to the Ravissant Winery in Belleville, Illinois because of all the good things we had heard! And now we understand why! Since out party was only for 25 people, we did not know what to expect. However they were able to reserve us their private cottage, fully stocked with cheese, fruits and of course, LOT of tasty wine! The staff was right there making sure we had everything we needed. They definitely went above and beyond! I would highly recommend Ravissant for ANY occasion!

Fifteen downtown St. Louis was a perfect match for my bachelor party because it’s a very fun, lively atmosphere, with an upscale, classy touch! We were able to reserve a private room for our group of 20, which worked out well because the place is ALWAYS packed! The service was unparalleled, as the staff was right on everything from setting up the room to the drinks and food! The food was spectacular, cooked perfectly and served quick for such a busy night! We did not have to wait for than a few minutes for a drink the entire evening. Everything was perfect.

From the initial time I spoke with Indira I could tell she was definitely passionate towards her craft, as well as VERY good at what she does! When my fiancé and I were able to sit down with her, we assumed she would only have a little time, however we spent HOURS altering the gown, making wonderful suggestions, as well as designing a bussle for it!!! The gown itself was a very nice designer label which looked beautiful as it was, however after Indira was finished it looked PHENOMENAL! I would recommend Indira to ANYONE!!!
