    Thank you for making Josh and Mikayla's day so amazing! It was just wonderful! Can't thank you enough for all of the help and support! Everyone had a great time and loved the venue. It was perfect!


    Thank you again for everything! You were a huge part of making the day so beautiful!

    As always, the planning, execution and details of the event went off without a hitch. The staff was very helpful and the chaperones said the kids did great!

    I believe St. Thomas families will be calling for next year's 8th grade dance!


    Just wanted to say thank you for helping things go smoothly at our wedding reception, & for helping with that cake decor issue! Everything looked so beautiful and I have heard nothing but compliments for the room & the set-up etc. We will recommend your facility to other engaged couples that arise, for their reception!

    -Thank you & God bless, Kim & David

    We were also very happy with the event and enjoy the environment there at Park Place very much. Having the extra room for the auction worked out really well for us and the flow of members and we appreciate your generosity with all the space!

    I really like the TV for displaying the annual photo of events PowerPoint program - worked out great....shocking - no technical difficulties!

    Thank you for accommodating my last minute questions as well. Your staff is lovely to work with as are you!

    -Cynthia, Environmental Defenders of McHenry County

    I will second everything that Cynthia stated. Thank you for all your efforts and those of your staff to make our event successful! We were so pleased to have the extra space to spread out our silent auction, which worked beautifully. And we were very pleased with your rearrangement of the buffet area in the banquet room. We look forward to working with you again. We'll probably be in touch after our next Membership Committee meeting about next year's event.

    -Nancy, Environmental Defenders of McHenry County

    We just had our wedding this past weekend at Park Place and I don't even have words to explain how perfect everything was. Lauren was great to work with, as well as the rest of the staff! Choosing a venue is one of the hardest things about wedding planning and this place falls nothing short of perfect. It is beautiful and elegant and very neutral which I'd have to say is the best thing about it! It's a blank slate to make it your own!


    Good Morning Lauren-

    On behalf of the Studley family Betty and I would like to thank you for the support and inputs you provided in the planning process for my mothers 90th Birthday Party. The last minute table adjustments and the bar staff member made the day "picture perfect" !

    -Dennis and Betty

    Dear Lauren,

    Dear Lauren,

    Our 60th Wedding Anniversary Celebration at Park Place was perfect in every way. The setting was (is) charming-you took care of every detail, making things so easy. Nothing was missed or left out and, our darling Mary was everywhere-making sure everyone had everything they needed or wanted before they even thought of it themselves. So, thank you Lauren and Mary for a lovely time at Park Place.


    -Fern and Bill


    I'm still going over (and over) Saturday in my mind and it could not have been more perfect!

    I walked in and saw the whole set up and was in awe. Exactly as I had thought it would be! The 2 tables were perfect! We did use one for the gifts and the other for the food so it was wonderful!

    The cherry on top was Rick! He was so wonderful through out the whole event. We talked about the mimosa's and got that all set and then I saw some coffee pots. I asked him about those and he said he had coffee down on the list...made my day! I told him it would make my father so happy (dad is 90 and still loves his coffee). Well, when the coffee was done, he immediately poured my father a cup. Dad was overjoyed!

    Now, let's fast forward to the end of the shower. Dad and I presented Margaret with a very special gift. My mother's wedding set. She's the 3rd generation to receive this. Well, we gave her the gift, dad was cute (as he always his), and then I walked with him toward to back by the bar and he just broke down. (My mother's been gone since 1969 and he still is madly in love with her.) He and I spoke, I got him settled, and he "shooed" me away saying he was fine. Next thing I see is Rick talking with dad, dad laughing/smile on his face, just enjoying the conversation.

    I am SO grateful to Rick for so very simple gesture that meant so much!

    Thank you for everything!!!!



    Tim & I just wanted to express our gratitude to you and your staff! We had a fantastic time and the wedding was better than we had hoped for :) I will be sure to recommend Park Place to anyone looking to host an event in the area. Thank you for being so easy to work with and making our day so great! Hopefully we get things cleaned up and there weren't any issues after we left.

    Thank you!!!!

    -Sarah & Tim


    We can't thank you enough for help and service in making our daughter's wedding day perfect!

    -A thankful family


    We just wanted to say how thankful we are for your help with our wedding. It was a wonderful time at Park Place. We will be recommending Park Place to our friends.

    -Ryan and Shannon

    From a Customer Feedback Form,

    Lauren and Mary were the best-Rock Stars! Park Place was clean and ready for the party. We were allowed to come earlier for set up. We were allowed access to the sound system and she even let a dad come in to test it and learn how to use it. Thank you all so very much!


    From a Customer Feedback Form,

    Thank you for a wonderful event!

    Hi Lauren,

    I can't begin to tell you what a blast I had last night. You put everything together so well. It was one of the most well organized ticketed events I've ever been a part of. You should be very proud.

    - Joe Diamond

    Lauren- You are such a sweet person and we thank you so much for being so patient with us with all of our little meetings and stop bys. Your thoughts and attention to all the details were so appreciated. Thank you for being excited with us and supporting us. We are so happy we made Park Place our choice. God bless you and your family and thank you again.

    - Alan and Rita

    Hi Lauren- Many, many people commented on how lovely Park Place is, and that they had no idea it was so nice. Thank you again for all you did to make our event outstanding. We sincerely appreciated your cooperative style and flexibility with us.

    - Marcy

    "Lauren was very helpful guiding us through the planning and preparation process, and everyone we dealt with on the evening of the reception was cheerful and courteous--right through cleanup (who's cheerful at 11:30 at night?) thanks for a wonderful experience."

    - Laura

    It was such a pleasure working with you on Brian and Allie's wedding celebration, you did an outstanding job! Thank you for all your excellent, detailed support-you are a true professional.

    - Maureen and Dan

    PJ and I both want to thank you for being such a big help to us on our very special day (and many days before)! Without you, things definitely would not have gone so smoothly. We both feel that Park Place was the perfect setting for our wedding.

    - Mike & PJ

    My son was married at Park Place last Saturday, June 7. I just wanted to compliment the manager and staff at this facility. She worked very well with my son and his wife to make this occasion truly one they will remember. Please thank her for a job well done.

    - Al

    I so appreciate your willingness to accommodate The Well. I wish all business people were as helpful as you. Thank you so much for your consideration.

    Park Place is a hidden gem. Thanks for all your help! The party was fantastic. Stage-dance floor-lighting and tables-all elegant! Thank you!

    Thank you so much for all of your help and patient guidance with our 2013 Blue & Gold. This was our best banquet yet.

    Thank you so much for your help with our anniversary party. We sincerely appreciate it!

    -Mary Kay & Bill

    Thank you for all of your help and time in creating a perfect atmosphere for Lauren and Craig's wedding.

    -Larry and Bob

    My mother was always a lady, always had great taste, and I believe that she would have loved our luncheon and Park Place-too bad more people weren't there to enjoy it.


    Thank you so much for your help over the past few months, it was one of the high points of planning our wedding. Every time a question about the reception came up we would say "It looks like Lauren already has that covered." It's almost a shame you have everything so under control because we would have liked to work with you more. I would also like you to know that after seeing Park Place, as soon as we got into the car, Shannon practically squealed with glee. That was mostly you. Thank you!

    -Bill & Shannon

    We would like to thank you for all your help with our wedding. You always made sure we would have nothing to worry about on our special day. You are a wonderful person to work with. Our wedding day was perfect!

    -Staci & Ken

    Words can't express how grateful I am and we are for everything you did to make our wedding day absolutely incredible!! From all the help before to going to any length the day of-you are the best! Your kindness and caring is very heartfelt and we are both so grateful for your generosity! again, many thanks to you and your staff!!

    -Mike & Susan

    Thank you so much for all you did to make my retirement party so special. Park Place looked great, the decorations and food were excellent, and everyone had a great time, thanks to your efforts. Your work is very much appreciated.

    -Walt Herrick

    Thank you for all your help with our wedding. Everything looked beautiful, we couldn't have done it without you!

    -Eric & Alicia

    I can't thank you enough for all of your help in making this day possible. You truly made me feel special, like I was the only bride you were working with. Thanks a bunch!


    Thank you for helping us organize and run the "Thanks for Giving" mixer. You did an outstanding job from lining up sponsors to decorating Park Place. With your help we were able to raise over $600, which will be given to Families ETC. We also collected 4 bins of toys that will be donated to The Salvation Army. Both organizations will use these gifts to help area families this holiday season.

    -Gary Reece and Jackie Ruiz, Crystal Lake Chamber of Commerce

    Thank you so much for all you did to make our event special.


    Lauren was absolutely wonderful. Extremely helpful and flexible about meeting times, table set up etc. We had a wonderful, flawless evening thanks to her and the staff!!!


    Everyone loved the set up and the girl that helped with whatever we needed!


    Lauren was very professional and a great help planning our event.


    We couldn't have been happier. Everyone had so much fun. It was so beautiful. It has been two weeks and everyone is still talking about it.


    Your place is a hidden gem. Thanks for all your help! The party was fantastic. Stage, dance floor, lighting and table were all elegant!


    I truly felt like the only bride Lauren was working with. Email responses were extremely timely and friendly. I loved the whole experience, from start to finish. Truly made my big day memorable.


    Thank you so much! Wonderful and professional!


    We were absolutely thrilled with Lauren and Park Place. We received guidance throughout the entire process. Very helpful suggestions to help us make our event run smoothly and look beautiful! I would highly recommend Park Place to others. Thank you Lauren for all of your help!!!

    "It was the perfect venue for our small wedding, our guests raved about the intimate setting. Thank you Lauren for everything. You were amazing the day of the wedding and every day leading up to it."

    - Jennifer and Foster

    "One of the hardest things to do this past 5 months was to part ways with an outstanding Banquet Hall (Park Place, Crystal Lake)! Lauren Thibodeau, you have been such a gracious host for our first 2 years! We cannot express enough gratitude to you, the bartenders, Park Place as a whole! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! As we grow larger every year, we have to keep in mind space. This coming year we will host our Masquerade Ball elsewhere due to our growing attendance numbers."

    - Make A Wish
