Panoramic glass, crystal chandeliers and baby grand pianos add to the beautiful ambience.
From start to finish, each event coordinator will oversee every aspect of a wedding to ensure couples and their guests have the best experience possible. Event guru, Ashley Walsh took some time to answer the following questions to help brides/grooms get to know more about The Chateau Bu-Sche .
How long have you been in the wedding industry? What motivates you to keep going every day?
I have been doing this here for 5 years now. I have always loved planning and am very detailed (I am a teacher so planning is my life). I love watching the couples transform throughout the wedding process, from fits of joy in the office over plans and details falling into place, to me soothing them through apprehensive periods, and finally the extremely rewarding wedding day where I watch a couple celebrate the amazing pair that they make and will make from that moment on. It is something I have noticed from working with them since day one.
As Event Coordinator, you have a lot of experience helping and meeting with couples who are planning their weddings. What are your expert tips to share with couples planning? Are there any questions that couples should ask when meeting with an event coordinator?
The best advice I can give is to just have fun and try not to stress. This should be a memorable experience that you will look back on and miss afterwards. So even if you feel stressed, try to just have fun.
Some important questions and information to have ready is:
* Can venue accommodate any traditions that you must include in your wedding.
* Knowing the facilities minimums and maximums
* Knowing if the state tax and service charge is included in their pricing
What sets your venue apart from other Chicagoland reception sites? What would you like couples to know about Chateau Bu Sche?
We have 25 beautiful acres of landscaping. This will provide you with perfect photos without any charge. This saves you an extra limo charge and fees some gardens and forest preserves will charge you to take pictures on their property.
All of our rooms are beautiful, recently remodeled, and have something unique. Most important, we do not have carpeting but rather marble flooring that is breath taking. We also have atriums that you cannot find anywhere else. Who wouldn’t love a room where you can have the beauty of the outdoors with the comfort of the indoors?
Is there anything a couple can discuss/see with you that they can’t find online?
It is really hard to truly see the beauty in the rooms when looking online. Everyone that walks into the rooms is amazed how the pictures do not give them justice. Having seen so many unique aspects of a wedding from every angle, our office staff is the ultimate resource, filled with knowledge of weddings and the facility. We love when you tell us about your wedding! We are equally as excited to hear about your color selections, favors, and flowers.
What is your favorite part of your job? Do you have a favorite memory of a couple or of a wedding you’ve been a part of?
I love meeting all the couples and their families. Everyday and every client is so different which makes the job fun. I was lucky enough to plan my friend’s wedding last summer. It was so much fun to help her plan and then be able to enjoy the wedding the day of. It really helped me see what the couples see the day of the event.
