Paper Source - Chicago
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I love, love, love Paper Source! They have every color you can think of and all of the staff is very helpful and friendly. Even when the store was about to close, they didn't try to kick me out. It's helpful that they also have a book of sample invitations so that you can pull ideas if you have no idea where to start. What can I say, I'm pretty picky when it comes to picking out invitations. Many of the expensive invitations out there either had too much going on or not enough. I simply chose different aspects and made all of the invitations by hand. You can personalize your invitations by adding embellishments like stamps, glitter, cute buttons etc.. If your buying 10 packages of the same item you get 10% off, 25 packs 20% off, 50 packs 30% off. Just make sure if you are making a large quantity like I did, start a few months ahead of time. It is very time consuming.

JC Image Design
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I searched for a wedding photographer through the internet and also from referrals from other friends but I was not impressed. I happened to stumble upon JC Image Design and checked out his website. The music selection, the pictures, everything was beautiful. From the very 1st meeting with JC to the very last shots at the end of the long night JC was a pleasure to work with. During the entire process whether I had an odd request or just wanted to chat, he was very attentive. My husband and I had our engagement shots done by JC. It was a blast! JC will do anything for a good shot. Who would have thought that taking hundreds of pictures would be so fun? Even my husband had fun and he hates taking pictures. During the wedding, I had tons of compliments from my wedding party, family, and friends that JC is super nice. I couldn't wait to see my pictures online. OMG!!! They were unimaginably gorgeous. I had over 1200 pictures and every single picture came out perfect. What can I say, JC is the best wedding photographer ever! Personality wise he gets along with everyone and you can't beat his prices for the quality of photos he takes. Check out his website, it will leave you breathless. If you're reading this JC-- You Rock!!!!
