Kathleen has joined us to tell us a little bit more about her February wedding celebration at the Peoria Country Club ...

My Mom and I were so intimately involved in every detail which made it even more special when we were able to see the finished product of the weekend’s events. We had amazing help from very talented people and it was truly the staff and those behind the scenes that made it so extraordinary. My sisters and step-mom were also huge when it came to unique elements to integrate into the day.

We did a stand up cocktail buffet which began at 7:00. Food stations and themes were scattered around in about 3 different rooms with various musical pieces in each room. Everyone moved downstairs at 8:45 for the toasts and dancing. The band was so tremendously phenomenal (The Larry Eckerling Orchestra) and the floor was literally packed nonstop until 1:30 am. After the toasts they passed around grasshoppers in shot glasses as well as chocolate milkshakes. The ice bar was a huge hit with guests and added an element of uniqueness. Around 11:30 they opened a mac’ n cheese bar for a late snack which consisted of several different cheeses and a variety of toppings. It was a truly memorable and special night which is what I hope every bride experiences!
