Al Brodsky Photography
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Al is a great photographer. If you're looking to save money, he's the perfect way to go. His prices are reasonable, and his technique is great. As long as you don't need to have multiple photographers (ie, one with bride and one with groom during preparations), then Al is a great choice.

Show On The Road
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I used Show on the Road because I had heard them at a different wedding. I wanted to use the same guy my friend had, but unfortunately he had left before my wedding. The DJ they sent me was just as good, if not better. My guests had an amazing time, and I firmly believe a lot of it had to do with the entertainment. They will be as interactive as you want them to be, I chose to have them teach my guests a few dances, which was great. I believe that no matter which DJ they provide to you, you will have a great experience.

Long Grove Community Church
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
Long Grove Community Church is a gorgeous quaint church in Downtown Long Grove. The site is beautiful, and all the people are ready and willing to help. The only downside to this site is that I found it to be a bit expensive. But if you love the church, it's worth it.

Wyndham Garden Hotel
( 3.0 / 5.0 )
I used Wyndham Garden Hotel in Buffalo Grove for my wedding night stay, as well as the recommended stay for my guests. I was a bit disappointed, and I don't believe the staff was as good as they should have been. I was told they would provide a shuttle to and from the reception hall for all my guests. I was also told that the bus would come back for any guests that did not fit for the first trip. I found out later that after the bus left, the remaining guests were told there would not be another one. In the end the remaining guests did get on a different shuttle, but it was very upsetting to them at the time. Besides the shuttle experience, I was content enough with the hotel. It is a small hotel, so there were no suites, but the rooms were clean.
