Where do I even begin?! We were recommended to this company from a past bride, and this was the only DJ company we met with! We loved them from day one! We met with Barry where he explained how the company worked, and showed us how it worked. Then, we did the "Meet the DJ" night... Great food.. Great music (DUH!), GREAT DJ's. We picked our top three and we had Matt Griffo as our DJ for our wedding. LET ME TELL YOU.. I felt like I was working with my "professional" best friend. He controlled the ceremony yet still managed to come by me and praise me on my song choices! He is actually one of the people to calm me down some because I was petrified to walk down the aisle. Then, the reception starts... He had the entrances down PERFECTLY and we had a different song for each group... So I was VERY impressed! He also helped make our popcorn! (We brought in our very own popcorn maker) Matt went way above and beyond and I couldn't ask for a better DJ... He always came up to me throughout the night and just chit chatted with me.. I felt like I knew him all my life!! And the dance floor was packed from start to finish. I didn't stop getting compliments even AFTER the wedding on how great he was. My guests LOVED him. He played their requests and was sincere when he didn't have the song.. I can't STOP praising him... Matt was absolutely terrific and I highly recommend him AND the Admit One DJ company. Thank you for making my wedding more special than it already was!!!

WOW... Dani is PHENOMENAL! I don't know ANYONE who would present themselves like Dani. Coralwed13 (PWer) recommended me to her and I can't thank her enough!!!!! Dani was a dream to work with and I'm already anxious to do our TTD session with her next month! I'm very shy and she made me feel so relaxed and comfortable around her. She is such a pleasure to work with! She stayed with us ALL DAY.. And she was PREPARED. The forcast called for rain, so she brought a few umbrellas. During my hair appointment, my mother in law wanted to head back home... Since it was pouring, Dani WALKED her out to her car with a bubble umbrella. WHO DOES THAT?! WOW! :) She truly took care of things when the stress was rising... And my guests noticed that as soon as a new person came on the dance floor, she snapped them. She was always around but behind the scenes... I loved that about her! Absolutely amazing!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH, DANI!!!!! I can't wait to see you again!

Mario Tricoci Hair Salon & Day Spas
 
( 4.6 / 5.0 )
I used Mario Tricoci in Schaumburg!!! This was my very first time getting my make up professionally done. I went for a trial and for the day of. The lady who did my make up was GREAT. She was very sweet and she was known for the "natural look". The only down fall is that she did push the make up products and she didn't listen 100% to what I wanted.. HOWEVER, she still took in what I told her, just made it more natural, and I'm telling you, I'm glad I let her. I loved my make up! I felt naturally pretty :) And having fake eyelashes on for the big day was sooooo natural looking! And they didn't bother me at all, which is something that concerned me! And they came off with just warm water.. No tugging, nothing! :) Easy peasy! And I still use the wedding make up that I purchased to this day. I love it!

Rev. Jim WAS expensive FOR us... We are a budget couple, but... I am so glad we splurged on him! Our ceremony was outside.. And it did start to rain... Since it rained, we agreed on no chairs for our guests... Which, on the day of, freaked me out.. BUT, Rev. Jim took advantage of that and made our ceremony sooo intimate and fun! He was absolutely phenomenal and I was crying, laughing, smiling, you name it! Rev. Jim made our wedding soo personal! When we first met with him, we spoke for about two hours! We were just so comfortable with him! And he USED what we spoke about that night in our ceremony! I'm so glad we have it on film because it was so touching for us... Who doesn't love things personalized?? We HIGHLY recommend Rev. Jim! He is WELL WORTH IT!

Som's Studio
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I found Som's Studio on Etsy through an alchemy. She was SUCH a sweetheart and knew exactly what I was looking for!
I love the Haute bracelets, but I just couldn't afford it. She did a custom listing for me for a pearl/brooch bracelet.. After some temptation, she offered me a great price for a "matching necklace". I caved and am sooo thrilled! I still wear my jewelry on special occasions.. It feels great and makes me feel pretty :)

I can't stop looking at it! She's such a joy to work with!

Target
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
I went through Target for my wedding cake! My sister worked there in the bakery, so I thought it to be only fitting! :)

I honestly can't tell you how amazed I was! I am not a cake person... So we just did one 8 inch round, 1 tier to "cut the cake" and had two full sheets for the back for our guests. Yellow cake, raspberry filling, whipped topping. I cannot tell you how many people PRAISED the cake! Even our DJ! They couldn't believe that the cake was from Target! Never judge a book by it's cover.. ;)

My first visit here for my bridesmaid dresses was great!! They had a sample of my bridesmaid gown I chose (Alfred Angelo, Style 7017), and the dress is perfect!! My bridal consultant was very nice, but also pushy.. Hoping to get a sale that day... But without all my bridesmaids, and still a ways off till my wedding, she said that we should have all bridesmaids together when placing the order so that the same dye is used... My matron of honor came back a second time with me to get measured because she was trying for another child and wanted to make sure she had the option of sizes to choose from. When getting measured (took an amount of five minutes!! :) Which was awesome), our bridal consultant was trying to make my sister order the gown!! She said that it was MY fault for not understanding her, but once you get measured, you have to order the gown... We stormed out and spoke to a manager. The manager was very pleasant and told us that they can save the measurements under my file name.. And with that, assigned us a new bridal consultant. I have not met her yet, but my fiancee says she's very nice.
