Here’s what others are saying…
Jesse and I had our perfect day all planned for an outdoor ceremony. The Tuesday before our wedding we had to switch to plan B and have an indoor ceremony. I emailed Dan at the Glencoe City Center immediately to see if we could have our entire wedding at the Reception venue and he worked so easily with us to get things switched around. I thought it was going to be stressful with such a big change just four days before the big day, but he helped things run smoothly. We had endless compliments on the Grand Ballroom and how gorgeous it was on our wedding. A timeless feel that can be decorated to fit many different themes. We had plenty of room for our guests and the atmosphere was so comfortable! If I had to do it all over again, I wouldn’t change a thing. Thank you to Dan at the Glencoe City Center for helping make our day everything we could have imagined!Katie & Jesse
