I’m planning our wedding from the west coast to be in Skokie, Illinois. That being said, I’d love to hear about any great (and affordable) florists, bakeries, or photographers that you may know of that are near-ish to Skokie.
Our wedding will be in July 2014 and consist of around 100 people, but we’d like to keep the budget close to 15k.
Thank you kindly!

@buzzalong: I’m from Illinois, but am having our wedding in Georgia . I would check into Soda Fountain Photography, they just moved to South Bend, Indiana from Chicago but they are willing to Travel and are so worth it. Its only a 2 hour drive for them. They took our engagement photos and they came out beautiful! If we could bring them down to Georgia we would. What type of sweets are you looking to have, because that would depend on what type of bakery

Bakery: I would check out Oak Mill Bakery. They have a location in Niles which is fairly close to Skokie.

@buzzalong: Do you already have venue? And does the 15K include catering costs or is that additional to food/drink?

Rachel G Photography did our engagement and wedding. She’s FANTASTIC.
Bakery-wise, there are lots of kosher bakeries in Skokie. Bennison’s in Evanston is fantastic, but I’m not sure if they do wedding cakes. We used Molly’s in Lincoln Park, and they deliver!
