My mother celebrated 57 years with some of her high school classmates. They have not stopped talking about how beautiful and professional the banquet hall was set up. The hostesses were spot on with excellent service. It was elegant, tasteful, beautiful!

It did not go well. We agreed to part ways as we were not happy with her lack of service and responsiveness to our concerns.
The owner is very quick to talk but follow thru was sporadic and
inconsistent. Often not responding to phone calls or emails. Meetings
that were scheduled would be cancelled last minute. There was always an
"occurance" in her life that need addressing and left us out in the
cold. Finally when the first official meeting at our house on June 1
was cancelled (our wedding was scheduled for Aug 31, 2014) she did not
show up and sent a delayed text message saying she would not be able to
make that appointment. We felt that any suggestions she had given us
verbally were not very useful and we ended up using our own vendors that
we found on our own. She was not a big help in sourcing vendors for a
garden wedding. Needless to say if she was this disorganized before the
wedding we did not feel comfortable using her on the day of. There are
always so many unknowns on the day of that could go wrong and we did
not want to have a wedding planner coordinating if she was not able to
coordinate before the event. We spoke with her about our
dissatisfaction and agreed it would be best if we parted ways. She had
promised to return our payment in full but by the end of
Callahan Wedding Planners Provider Name Locked
, then it
was by the end of Aug and now she does not respond to emails nor phone
calls. I assume she is out of business or operating under a different
name. I would not leave such an irresponsible person in charge of a
wedding day.

They did an absolutely fantastic job. The food was excellent, the servers were pleasant and efficient, and
Callahan Wedding Planners Provider Name Locked
and Sandy were great to work with throughout the months of planning. We had several last minute changes to the seating chart and meal orders and they were totally flexible. The reception ended late and the staff went above and beyond to get everything packed up for us including gifts, flowers, centerpieces, and cake. It was all staged at the back door so we could pull the cars around and load up. I would definitely recommend

for weddings or any other events.

had developed a complete itinerary for all the vendors and the members of the wedding party; everyone knew where they needed to be, what they needed to be doing and when. When we arrived for the Quad Cities for the ceremony and reception, everything was completely covered and we could focus on enjoying our big day with no worries at all. If there were any problems behind the scenes, they were addressed without issue and we never heard about them.

, the owner, was great to work with and flexible when booking the party. He had a very interesting menu, provided a lot of vegetarian choices and worked with me to stay in budget.
Upon the first phone call from

called to say that she was early (half an hour) and told me which location we had been assigned at the park. When I arrived,

The food, ribs, chicken, burgers, etc... were excellent, as were the side dishes and appetizers of dips and a caprese salad. Having hosted a lot of private parties, I was checking in with

& Limitless was the perfect choice for our wedding. They did a beautiful job! The band has a fabulous diverse song list that offers something for everyone. And they were happy to customize the song list with my requests. The band was professional and they kept the party rocking. It was great to see so many guests enjoying the music. I would highly recommend this band to anyone planning an event. They truly made my wedding reception a hit! Check them out: http://www.kimberlyhalllimitlessmusic.com/

The wedding itself was beautiful but not because of the planner but because of the couple and their families and friends.
I can only review what I actually saw...I think that is only fair...so I will not comment on many items I was told by the bride and groom but rather what I saw as a guest at the wedding.
I saw this woman standing around with a paper in her hand and she looked rather out of place. She was dressed as though she was going to the grocery store and had a grocery list. As I said, she looked out of place so I asked someone. I was shocked to learn she was the wedding planner.
I had talked to the bride and groom many times before the event and they told me that since they came from blended families they wanted to keep it

and not have an actual wedding party or have everyone announced after the wedding. They just wanted the parents, the witnesses and of course the bride and groom announced. So when everyone in each family was announced, it was a bit uncomfortable and I was surprised they had changed their minds. Again I asked...why? Turns out they didn't change their minds. The wedding planner just ignored their

.
I was also very surprised to see the planner and her staff (2 females that I only saw at dinner) sitting at a table next to us that had open seats because a couple of guests hadn't shown, and they were eating dinner as though they were guests. I have 4 children and been through 4 weddings and I have never seen a wedding planner sitting and having dinner as a wedding guest.
Many more important requests made by the bride and groom were ignored by this planner and in the end, the bride was brought to tears. It was so sad to see this beautiful young bride sobbing on her wedding day because the person her mother had paid to help make her dream day special ruined it for her.
I would never recommend this woman. She obviously has no experience in event planning or any skill sets needed for the job.
The venue has banned this woman from any event work at their facility. That speaks volumes.

Do not hire
Callahan Wedding Planners Provider Name Locked
as your wedding coordinator, I paid for her deluxe “Utopia Package” and she nearly ruined my wedding. I never write negative reviews, I am easy going as stated by many of our vendors and the venue, etc... I got her because I was sick the year before the wedding. After contract was signed, she stated she did weekends and nights with her family and would prefer weekdays 9-5. We both work 5 days a week. I agreed to phone calls to help bend to her schedule, and even with this she still had trouble making calls and meetings. The month before the wedding I asked for her help in finalizing details with our vendors and our venue. She said I was demanding her appearance instead of asking her availability on a weekend. We were talked out of firing her because it was so close to the wedding. We told her she was rude & she stated that every bride gets emotional this close to the wedding and I just had pre wedding jitters. This made me feel like a crazy bride. She was very negative about my vibrant yellow and orange color (she only does traditional white and ivory) while our other vendors loved it. She offered to be at the makeup trial, but could only stay 10 minutes because of family conflict. On the 2nd trial we tried to coordinate with her schedule but she was unavailable again and we went without her. She emailed us that assisting with the makeup trials was above and beyond her contract and rudely state she was only offered because we had no friends or family In town. Afterwards we found out she was rude to my mother and my family at the wedding. She also failed on getting invitations in time, and showed up late for the actual wedding weekend, to the point that the hair, makeup, and photographer vendors complained. She gave us the wrong count for staffing with her own company (for tips), screwed up the lighting of the cake and the ice sculpture, and didn’t make sure our guests got their table numbers, and lost one of my favorite pair of shoes.

I called YES and asked to speak to a manager or supervisor and was told he/she was unavailable and that I could leave a message. Of course I left a message and I thought "Oh no, here is the run-around". I was wrong. I received a prompt call back from a woman who identified herself as "

, one of the owners".

apologized for not getting back to me sooner and listened as I explained my concerns and asked for what I hoped would be an agreeable solution. She said she would need to talk to her employees and that she would get back to me ASAP. One day passed and on the second day
