Hilton Orrington Hotel Evanston
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
The reception was held in a ballroom at the Hotel Orrington in Evanston. This hotel is often utilized by Northwestern University and is highly regarded. There was a formal pre-reception meeting held to discuss the formalities of the event. It helped us to understand the timeline and details of our reception. The Hotel Orrington was a near perfect site for the reception- the evening went beautifully! They were able to accommodate the special diet needs of all of our guests. I would highly recommend this venue.

duplicate
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
We purchased our wedding invitations from Minted.com. We had them personalized with our engagement photo- a great way to do something different than the norm. Our invitations were adorned with Old English Calligraphy. We had 200 invitations made at $665, and we were very happy with the product.

Lisa Lefkowitz Photography
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Our wedding photographer, Lisa Lefkowitz was terrific to work with. Not only was she personable and accommodating, but she also captured all of the special (and in-between) moments of our day! The photos were spectacular. Our wedding was in the winter and we were able to get some great shots outside, as well. Lisa is an outstanding professional, and she is highly recommended.

Maggiano's Little Italy - Old Orchard
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
Our rehearsal dinner was held at the Maggiano's in Old Orchard Mall. We were served buffet style calimari, spaghetti, pizza, and other Italian favorites. We got a great rate since we had more than 15 people-- this is mainly why we booked this venue for the occasion.

Pastor Conrad
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Paster Conrad was our wedding officiant. He gave a beautiful homily and blessing during our wedding ceremony. When we said our vows to affirm our love, Pastor Conrad literally stepped back in awe. He was emotionally invested in our day-- and that made for a very personal and intimate service.

Rogers and Hollands
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I purchased the engagement ring and wedding rings from Rogers and Hollands. I was very happy with the service and policies of this vendor. I was able to set up an account/payment plan to pay for the engagement ring. Because of this, I was able to upgrade the diamond to the one I really wanted to get her. I was very happy with my experience here.
