Bridal Reviews


“My husband and I just got married at the Carlisle the 11th of October, 2013, and I must say that this place did an AMAZING job!

I worked with Kris and Maureen throughout the past year and a half planning my wedding, and these women went above and beyond to make sure that my wedding was everything I ever dreamed of!

The place is absolutely GORGEOUS, the way that each table was decorated and the way that the sweet table and all the little intricate details were arranged… my expectations were exceeded!

We had 205 people, and had two rooms (Oabrook and Lombard). Not ONE of our guests had anything bad to say. The food was delicious. The cake and sweets were delicious. The bar was completely stocked. Staff was extremely friendly. I could NOT be happier with how things turned out. And I cannot thank the Carlisle enough for making our wedding a night we will NEVER forget.

I highly, HIGHLY recommend this place. And will pass along the amazing feed back! Thanks again, Kris and Maureen. I couldn’t have done it all without you two!”

I just had my wedding at the Carlisle and it was AMAZING!First of all I was working with Megan and she is wonderful! She is the easiest, nicest, most helpful person on the planet to work with. I am so happy she was my coordinator at the Carlisle. (I also spoke to Maureen a few times and she was just as amazing as Megan).


Leading up to the wedding I was unsure on what to do with some things and always had random questions and Megan was so full of so many ideas and was not tired of my endless emails with random questions. She was always so helpful and quick on the responses. 🙂


As for the reception everything was so beautiful and perfect! The hall to begin with is beautiful during the day but when it is all lit up and set up for your wedding it is unbelievable!!! Everything looked gorgeous!!! All of my guests were commenting on how great everything looked and how delicious the food was! They do have amazing food! We had the Carlisle salad, sorbet, egg lemon soup, filet or chicken, and brownie dessert, along with an amazing dessert table and late night snack. Everything was just perfect!
Also, I know someone said this place used to be pink, it is no longer pink. 🙂 it is a champagne color with crystals and chandeliers, just gorgeous, not at all tacky or too much.

My fiancé and I were so happy and glad we went with the Carlisle, because they really made our dream wedding come true! I had just an amazing experience with them!”

My now husband and I looked around at different halls and this one was the best that we found. All of the other places that we looked at required a fee to rent the place, this one did not!


Maureen, the manager, was the greatest! She helped us out on so many things! When we needed to change things last minute, she accommodated us and gave us extras! I wanted a particular kind of wine for the head and parent’s tables and she went out and bought a case of it for us for no extra charge!! We wanted to do our own candy bar and we were able to bring the candy and the candy jars in a few days before the reception. We were previously told by another girl that does not work there anymore that we would either have to set it up ourselves or pay them to set it up. I talked to Maureen later and she said, “No way! You can bring anything you want as early as you want and we will set it up for you!” She was great! She took care of us all night on the day of as well!


The food was excellent, the service was amazing, and the place is beautiful!


“From the moment we began our search, the Carlisle did everything the could to help make it special. Maureen was absolutely amazing. Any time I had a question or concern, they quickly squashed it. The food was absolutely amazing, and everything I asked for I was able to get…no questions asked. They truly go above and beyond. They made my wedding day the complete fairytale I always wanted.”


“Megan was wonderful! Her calm demeanor helped me when I                          was stressing out!”  Bride  8-24-13
