The Wave
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
We held our rehearsal dinner at The Wave Restaurant, located in the W hotel on Lakeshore Drive. We had a most fun experience there. The food was not only delicious, but served with impeccable presentation. The atmosphere was cool and sophisticated, with interesting art deco on the walls and great lounge music playing in the background. My husband is a musician, so he especially appreciated the music selection.

The Drake Hotel
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I purchased my bouquet from the flower shop at the Drake Hotel (my venue was just down the street). The Drake Florists did an exquisite job. The florist put together a beautiful arrangement of white callilies- they were beautiful and fresh, even though they were out of season. The shop had excellent customer service, I was very happy with all aspects of working with them.

NoMI
 
( 3.0 / 5.0 )
The day after our wedding, we had a small luncheon at NoMi on top of the Park Hyatt. We had made reservations well in advance, but for some reason, when we arrived they did not have us listed. We ended up being seated, but it was toward the back of the restaurant. We didn't get to enjoy the amazing view, which was one of the perks of holding the occasion there. The food was excellent, but we were very disappointed in missing out on the view, because of their reservation mix-up.

Chicago Limousine
 
( 3.0 / 5.0 )
For our wedding, we used Chicago Limousine service for our transportation needs. Everything with the actual limousine service was fine: clean, prompt, and as ordered. However, we ended up having a problem with the billing. The company charges based on how much time the service is used, and they ended up over-charging us for an additional couple of hours. We ended up getting reimbursed for this, but it was a hassle. Be sure to be clear about billing and charges, so you don't run into this same problem.

Otto Rascon Photography
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Otto Rascon was our wedding photographer. My husband is also a photographer, so we selected this service with an educated eye. We loved Otto's photojournalistic background and artistic style. We ended up receiving a CD of all the images and he allowed us to do some multimedia design with it. He catered to our individual needs for our wedding day memories. Otto has a great personality, and is a wonderful person to have around on the big day. He paid attention to details that I wasnt able to. He was on target the entire evening and we couldn't have been happier with the images we received. We highly recommend him!
