  • Palace Events is the perfect place to decorate your wedding. I rented wall draping, up lighting, ceiling draping and even had bulb lights with the ceiling draping as well. I had a specific vision from the start that I knew I wanted and they were able to deliver it and then some! With coronavirus I had last minute changes that I had to make for my ceremony and they were able to accommodate it with no questions asked. They even allowed to meet with me again just to relieve some stress and make sure we were on the same page (even though there wasn’t a doubt in my mind that we were)! The whole place looked amazing and we are still getting comments on how great it looked. They were absolutely amazing.

  • Let me start speaking very generally and say that I HIGHLY recommend Palace Events, especially if you're planning a wedding. Mike and his team are highly professional, organized, and they've thought of everything. They do what they can to help you realize your vision of your wedding, but they're also honest with you about what works and what doesn't work. Trust me- their expertise and experience was really useful for the whole process. Courtney Kroos was our specific Wedding Coordinator for our wedding (our main contact, manager, person running the show day-of), and let me just say- I literally am writing my first Yelp review ever because I need to praise her. She is EXCEPTIONAL. Not only was she unbelievably kind, organized, and on top of everything- but you can tell Courtney is a really good people person. She's the perfect person for this job. She really makes sure your voice is heard. We had a small bump in the road on our wedding day (nothing Palace could control- our ceremony v... Read more

  • Palace was a lifesaver for our 100 guest wedding at Ewing Manor. As our wedding was all outdoors, we needed to rent a lot of equipment for the venue including tables, chairs, DJ, cocktail tables, a big tent, and so on. Palace was very clear about what they could provide, met with us multiple times to arrange the particulars and provided the rented materials on the day without issue. Everything looked as it did pictures, and there was nothing out of place. But, we took the extra step to hire Palace as our on-site coordinator on the day of the wedding. This is where the real value was. We received a wedding coordinator to oversee the whole event as well as a ceremony coordinator to help guide the flow of the ceremony. They coordinated with all the vendors and ensured that everything went well. And it did. This took a TON of pressure off my husband and I, and allowed us to relax and enjoy the moment. Furthermore, there was some risk of rain on our wedding day, and Palace was extre... Read more

  • ‘Extraordinary; Imaginative; Dependable; Reliable; Innovative; Accommodative; Beyond-the-call-of-duty-all terms applicable to Courtney Kroos, Mike Pohlman, and Palace Events! This past weekend, we had a beautiful wedding at Ewing Manor in Bloomington, Illinois- an outdoor ceremony and reception. From the initial introductory meeting to the completion and return of the wedding decorations, Courtney and Mike were true professionals- but with the added bonus of great creativity, enthusiasm and endless energy! We had intricate, differing decorations for each table in addition to a multitude of other freestanding props where Courtney used her creativity to place them appropriately at the venue. The setup, incredible wooden tables, chairs, and beautiful clear top tent with elevated lighting added a wonderful ambiance to the entire event. Changes were made during the venue and Mike/ Courtney/ the Palace staff adapted flawlessly. They were in charge throughout the day, but were invi... Read more

  • As soon as we hired Palace Events for our wedding day, the herculean task of planning a wedding in Bloomington from the east coast went to the wayside. Palace didn't just cover our planning, they also covered all our rentals, hooked us up with a Deejay, and were present to support ALL of our wedding whims. They did all the set up and tear-down of an extensive reception design such that during the day of the wedding, we just had to merely show up. And the prices were extraordinarily affordable for the service they provided. The wedding day was absolute perfection due in large part to Palace's involvement.

  • 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!!

  • Mike and Courtney as well as the rest of the Palace Events team were absolutely the best. I would highly recommend them for any event you’re going to plan. They went above and beyond for my daughter’s wedding. Very professional and organized.... everything went like clock work! Again, simply the best!!!

  • 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 ...

  • 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 u... Read more

  • Mike~ I wanted to say a big "thank you" to you and your staff for being an integral part in making Stephanie and Jake’s wedding so wonderful! You were all so easy to work with, organized, timely, and great at communicating with us. The venue looked beautiful and exactly how we had hoped it would. If there were any glitches at all they certainly were not apparent to us. It was SO nice as the mother of the bride to have no concerns the week or even day of the wedding about the venue or DJ services. I felt very confident leaving everything in your hands and letting you do your thing.The DJs and their extra hands were amazing. The girls on staff communicated constantly with us thru the night in such a calm, friendly, and enthusiastic way asking any necessary questions. It was unexpected and so helpful! The DJs were professional, did their job, yet were very much in the background. Thank you, thank you, thank you for making our first wedding experience so positive! I will highly rec... Read more

  • We recently used Palace Events for our wedding reception, and I couldn't be happier! Initially, we worked with Mike to set up a vision of our venue, and he was transparent and responsive throughout the entire process. We needed to make changes to our set-up, and he was quick to help us troubleshoot. Closer to the date, our music plan changed and we were able to work through Palace to set-up DJ services. Before and during the event, Twenty Twenty (DJ services affiliated with Palace) and Palace were checking in to make sure everything was exactly what we wanted. The night was wonderful thanks to this business. 10/10 would love to work with them again!

    Thank you so much for the kind words Erin!! It was a pleasure working with you. Thank you so much for the opportunity!

  • 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.
