Carnivale Chicago

Where can you go for a great rehearsal dinner in Chicago? Look no further than Carnivale. Here you can spice up your party by renting one of their private rooms for you and your guest. They have rooms for all kinds of party sizes. Their authentic soulful cuisine will put you in paradise. Here you can pick from Puerto Rican, Mexican, Colombian, Brazilian, and many more Latin American foods. Not only is the food amazing but also the colors featured throughout the restaurant are perfect for a fun get together! This restaurant would be a great place to eat, chat, and share a few of their famous mojito’s before the big day. The thing that I love most about the restaurant (other than the food and colors), is the SPACE! All the rooms are large enough to accommodate at least a party of 40 guests, if not more. The live music after dinner will get you and your party dancing in no time. Carnivale is a top location to take your guests for a wonderful celebration.

Kyla and Pat Mirabella

When I got engaged my mom and I met with a few wedding planners. Ali was by far the most personable, knowledgeable and open about her experiences and planning process. We knew immediately that we wanted to hire Ali, and as a result my wedding ended up being more beautiful, and more importantly, more fun than I could have ever imagined. The entire day and evening flowed seamlessly, thanks to Ali’s amazing organization. There were so many times throughout the engagement that my mom and I were overwhelmed with questions as to the appropriate way of doing things. I cannot stress enough how wonderful it was to have Ali available to answer all of our questions, by e-mail, phone or even a meeting if we wanted it. 

Licensed to Wed movie premieres July 4th

Premiering on July 4th at a theater near you, Licensed to Wed!

License to Wed follows newly engaged Ben Murphy (John Krasinski) and his fiancée, Sadie Jones (Mandy Moore), in their quest to live happily ever after. The problem is that Sadie’s family church, St. Augustine’s, is run by Reverend Frank (Robin Williams), who won’t bless Ben and Sadie’s union until they pass his patented, "foolproof" marriage-prep course. Consisting of outrageous classes, outlandish homework assignments and some outright invasion of privacy, Reverend Frank’s rigorous curriculum puts Ben and Sadie’s relationship to the test.
