"Having Palace Events coordinate our wedding was the best choice we made when planning our wedding. Michael and his team are seasoned professionals who are 100% committed to making your dreams realities. They were always quick to respond to all emails and phone calls, gave great advice, and kept us on track in the planning process. When the day of our wedding came I knew everything would be taken care of and was able to just enjoy the day. The Palace team was right there for everything we needed and took our vision to the next level.

We also rented a lot of their products: tables, chairs, linens, lighting, draping, bars, photo booth, and tent. All their products are great quality and it is evident they take great care of all their rentals. We had so many complements on our wedding and it was due to the hard work of Palace Events! Make Palace events your first stop in wedding planning!!"

Palace Events coordinated our wedding in June 2019. Throughout 8 month planning process, Mike and Courtney along with the entire palace events team were extremely responsive, organized, experienced, and mindful of our budget.


We cannot recommend the day of coordinating package enough - it is well worth the money. Leading up to the day, Palace Events would consistently reach out to us requesting information to help us along the way, as well as answer any concerns and provide solutions. They would take the information we provided (timing, vendors, questions, concerns) and provide responses almost immediately. They knew every detail of the day and asked all the right questions.


I went into the wedding with many decor ideas. Mike and Courtney listened, and helped turn my ideas into reality. From tent, to chairs, to lighting, signs, and banners - the wedding looked exactly as I pictured, and along with the help of my parents, all of the decor was out of my hands the week prior allowing me to enjoy the lead up rather than stress about the details. Additionally, all of the items we rented from Palace Events were in top shape, no issues, and everything looked as advertised.

On our wedding day, the forecast did not look good and our wedding was primarily outdoors. The Palace team did not miss a beat. We were able to add a last minute tent to our cocktail hour set up, and walls to our dinner tent. When the weather turned out to be perfect, Mike was already taking the walls of the tent down and providing fans. Throughout the day, Palace Events consistently kept up with us, asking what we needed and thinking ahead to things not even on our radar.


Courtney and Mike are truly outstanding at wedding planning and execution. They went above and beyond any expectation we had regarding an event rental and coordination company. We would not have been able have the wedding of our dreams without the help of Palace Events. Anyone in the central Illinois area is privileged to have a team like this available to them and we recommend whole heartedly.

"Palace Events was worth every single penny. Thank you for giving us the best day of our lives!"


"When we first found Palace Events, we were just looking for a tent company. We didn’t know until we met with Palace that they were much more than a tent company! They were professional and organized. They were able to show us a layout of the tent and the placement of the tent on the yard where we would have our reception. I have never heard of another tent company doing this.

We were debating getting a wedding planner before meeting with Palace. At our first meeting, they explained that they have a day of coordinating package. We were so impressed with them that we decided to book their day of coordinating package. This was the best decision we made!!

Palace helped us all along the way- they even came to the reception space multiple times! We had our reception at my husband’s parents’ home, so we were very nervous and their visits gave us so much peace of mind! They literally walked through the home with us like our guests would as we planned our reception. They helped us create an itinerary and contacted all of our vendors to coordinate when they would arrive. They also had general tips and advice when we started booking other vendors.


The day of the wedding was an absolute dream thanks to palace events. Everything Palace brought was in excellent condition- tent, tables, chairs, decor and more! I’ve heard horror stories of brides (who used other tent companies) wiping down seats and steaming table cloths the days before their weddings. We didn’t have to worry about any of that with Palace. Palace brought a team of people! They set up my decor, they coordinated our parking, they directed guests where to go (and where not to go). If there were any problems the day of the wedding, we didn’t know about it! Palace took care of everything.

We need to do a few special shout outs- Mike went above and beyond for us! He’s very creative and analytical. He made sure everything we planned had a purpose and contributed to the reception in someway. My absolute favorite thing about Mike is he’s not flowery or over the top. He’s very calm and collected. He doesn’t throw out ideas from Pinterest- the bride is the one who gets to do that!! Mike has big ideas that are realistic and create an experience for your guests. You need someone like this when you’re planning a wedding. Courtney made sure my Pinterest dreams became a reality! I told her exactly how I wanted my decor set up and she delivered. She also made sure our day was on schedule, which I didn’t think was possible because we packed a ton into a short amount of time. She made sure everything happened when it was supposed to. If we needed anything, she ran (literally ran) and got us what we needed. She contacted every single vendor to check and see when they would arrive. ALL of my vendors complimented her. They all liked working with her and they were very impressed, which really says something about how great she is!

I would recommend Palace Events for their tent at minimum, but if your budget allows, get the planning package!! Palace Events was worth every single penny. Thank you for giving us the best day of our lives!"

"Palace Events is truly the best decision we made in regards to our wedding. 12/10 would recommend to everyone! They did all of our rentals, wedding coordination, lighting, and so much more. They ALWAYS went above and beyond for everything and made our day more perfect than we could ever have imagined. The staff is the most genuine, hardworking staff. They are so incredibly prompt with responses, will get you anything you need, and coordinate with ALL of your other vendors for such a great price. I couldn’t say one negative thing about our entire experience and cannot thank Courtney, Mike, and all of the staff enough!" - Nichole Rave 5.26.2019

"Mike and the Palace Events crew did a fabulous job at our wedding. He created the exact vision I wanted while also giving us great ideas and options for our big day. Everything turned out fabulous and Mike was super knowledgable and talented in his line of work. He was also great about allowing my OCD details to work out and do mock work ups of what I was thinking and finding pictures that helped it easier to visualize what he was saying. I would definitely recommend working with them!"

"We rented just about everything from Palace Events and I couldn’t have been happier!! When I first met with Mike I had this vision in my head from a Pinterest picture and we just took off from there. He is so knowledgeable about the reception space and knows what will work best. When I walked into the ballroom before the reception I was in complete awe. The room was completely transformed and it was even more beautiful than I had pictured. If I had to do it all again I wouldn’t change a single thing. Thank you so much Mike and the entire Palace Events team for making our wedding day absolutely incredible."
