  • When I called Michael Dubina, the Executive Events Manager at the Drake Oak Brook, with only 19 days left before our wedding, I did not think that our dream wedding would be possible. However, I was quickly proven wrong. From the moment I spoke with Michael, I knew that we would be taken care of. Michael went to extraordinary lengths to make sure it was our dream wedding. Everything from the decorations to the table placement was handled with the utmost care. Michael treated us as if we were family. This is something that every couple should expect when working with the family owned Drake. I truly cannot be any more appreciative and grateful for Michael and his staff. He was able to give us our dream wedding in a matter of 19 days. I cannot imagine what he is capable of putting together with a year of planning. Michael and the Drake will always have a special place in our hearts for all of their work. We cannot recommend it enough

  • Every part of our experience with The Drake was first class. From the first day we stepped into the hotel for our initial tour, we were blown away at the friendliness, attentiveness, and professionalism of the entire wedding staff. Throughout the entire planning process, they were clear and communicative, and always made us feel as though we had everything we needed and more. When COVID hit and we had to adjust our day, they clearly outlined our options and worked with us to make sure our big day would still be everything we wanted it to be (or as close as possible). On our wedding day, we were blown away with how smooth everything went. The professionalism of the staff and safety measures put in place made all of our guests feel welcome and safe. Even with a last minute shift from our ceremony moving from outside to inside due to weather, the entire process was seamless. To this day, our guests continue to rave about how beautiful the venue was, how AMAZING the food was,... Read more

  • The Drake hosted my wedding in November 2020. I had signed the contract with them almost 2 years prior to my wedding date. Cathleen Knobbe was our initial wedding coordinator who was easy to talk to, available when I needed her, a hospitality professional, and someone who I initially had a connection with. She was amazing. As you can imagine, continuing to move forward with a wedding during a pandemic was a stressful time for me. Almost everything did not go as planned, yet my new wedding coordinator, Karla Moctezuma, was there to help me every step of the way. Karla is professional, a very good communicator, accommodating, encouraging, thoughtful, and is focused. I couldn’t have asked for a better wedding specialist. She exceeded my expectations. Along with my now husband and my parents, we all felt like Karla did her job, but also went above and beyond to ensure we had our special and perfect wedding day no matter what the circumstances and all the changes that there were. Her and ... Read more

  • We hosted our wedding on 10/10/2020 at the Drake Oak Brook hotel and it was like a fairytale. The staff was very responsive, on time, and professional. Karla, the wedding specialist, was very organized, friendly, punctual, very professional, and she will do whatever it takes to make the wedding night unforgettable... She actually kept me calm throughout the planning journey by always telling me “please don’t worry about anything and go rest” :) My husband & I are very delighted of this great experience and we totally recommend this place!

  • We planned our wedding for almost two years when all of a sudden Covid hit and changed everything. For months we hopped that things would go back to normal, but they didn’t and next thing we knew we were a month away and had to find a new venue. We decided to run up to the Drake and talk with them and we were plesantly surprised. They were very accommodating and made every effort to make our wedding the best day of our lives. We had the pleasure of working with Karla who helped make our day nothing short of amazing and get through all the replanting in just 4 short weeks.

  • Absolutely fantastic! The staff is incredible, the food was outstanding, and the price was great! We booked here very last minute since COVID-19 forced us to abandon our initial wedding venue. I am beyond happy that we were "forced" to change venues. It was all perfect. Karla made all of our dreams come true.

  • The Drake Oak Brook turned my dream wedding into a reality! Everything was perfect from the first time I met the wedding coordinators (Gina Sharenow & Michael Dubina). They were a pleasure to work with & very personable. I actually found myself missing them after the wedding. Between them & the rest of the staff, they made sure our day went smoothly & that I didn’t have to worry about a single thing. Highly highly recommend the Drake Oak Brook for any occasion, especially a wedding

  • Where can I start? Our wedding day was perfect, thanks to the Drake. Working with Michael, he made it so easy to plan our reception at the Drake, even while planning from TX. The entire team is extremely detail oriented, friendly, and helpful! The aesthetic of the Drake is spot on - and the rooms are so beautiful, we brought in minimal decoration. The menu itself was amazing and we heard nothing but rave reviews from our guests. I cannot recommend the Drake enough, and would urge anyone looking for a beautiful, classy venue, to check them out!

  • I have been to several events at The Drake Oak Brook over the years so I always had them in my top 3 options for eventual wedding reception venue. When planning time came around we set up time with Cathleen and LOVED our options. It was a no brainer - Drake Oak Brook all the way! Cathleen and Gina and the rest of the team gave us a white glove experience with lots of help and guidance from start to finish on our journey. I felt so special and completely trusted their management of every detail. I just know there were thousands of moments that probably had to be addressed to make the reception a success that I never heard about and they just took care of it all and then some. It was perfect. This is such an emotional, happy, and special journey - you want genuine and interested people to be part of your vendor experience - the team delivered on this for me. And they were just fantastic! My goal was to have my guests satisfied with food and beverage - and I have heard nothing ... Read more

  • We loved the Drake! Our guests kept coming up to us and saying how this was the "best wedding ever" -- mostly thanks to the Drake's attentive staff and delicious food. I was nervous about the wedding preparations, but Michael Dubina made everything easy and was an absolute delight to work with. He is professional, prompt, and has a great sense of humor! Couldn't recommend enough!

  • Our daughter and son-in-law's wedding reception was held at the Drake Oak Brook on 6/29/19. From the moment we booked the venue we knew it would be perfect in every way and it truly was. Working along side Michael Dubina(Executive Meeting Manager) was wonderful. He went above and beyond to make our wedding weekend spectacular. His kindness, sense of humor and knowledge meant the world to us. The moment our guests began arriving for a weekend of festivities compliments were flowing regarding the newly renovated hotel and the warmth and kindness of the staff. The wedding venue was beautiful. We had our cocktail hour in the Flower Room/outside veranda and dinner was served in the Three Oaks Ballroom. The decor, light up dance floor, food and service was phenomenal. Our guests cannot stop talking about how wonderful and beautiful everything was. Our wedding weekend concluded with the Drake's delicious Sunday Champagne Brunch. A heartfelt thank you to the entire staff at the Drak... Read more

  • We could not be happier with out choice. Our guests loved having access to three rooms throughout the night: The Veranda, Three Oaks Ballroom and Flower Room. Each of the rooms was individually stunning. The banquet staff, led by Anna were efficient and friendly. Our bartenders - Jose and Oscar were full of personality. Oscar showed off some dance moves and Jose made up a tasty concoction that everyone loved. They really do mean unlimited hors d’oeuvres during cocktail hour. It was nonstop. Dinner was amazing too - we would highly recommend the filet and the Chilean sea bass (which our guests said "was scrumptious"). We splurged on cocktail shrimp as the dinner appetizer. It was worth it - our guests LOVED them and cause some friendly bribes going down and people vied for non-shrimp eaters portion. The evening ended on the electric dance floor which was so much fun. Throughout the year, we worked with Cathleen, Michael and Gina and we cannot say enough about how great t... Read more

  • The drake offered Impeccable service this location recently had renovations completed which make the hotel a top site for a wedding venue in the suburbs. Also the location is accommodating for out of town guests and easy access to all suburbs and city. The flower room is an extra space that can be rented adjacent to the outdoor terrace.....I had all three areas rented for my wedding and it was a perfect space for 200 guests. They were very accommodating to making a custom menu of food choices and help to provide Execution of all my wedding details.

    responded with the following comments.

    Connie, We so enjoyed sharing your very special day and ensuring it was all that you were looking for. We will look forward to seeing you and your husband visit the property in the future. The Drake Oak Brook Team

  • My wife and I got married at the Drake in May. We almost crossed them off our reception venue based solely on pictures and reviews on sites like this, wedding wire and google, none of which do the Drake justice. My wife dragged me to the Drake and we both thought the spaces were unique, had character but yet offered all the conveniences of the hotel. We had our reception in the Three Oaks Ballroom, the Flower Room and had the veranda. The spaces were so impressive, to go from indoor and outdoor seamlessly. We had such an easy time working with Michael and his team, they really catered to us and helped my wife not become a bridezilla. We would recommend them to anyone - they really helped our wedding be an amazing event.
