We used Polonia for our wedding and let me tell you, they are great! Communication with Brian regarding tasting (huge portions) was easy from the start and he was always prompt with returning emails. They handled our appetizers, dinner, cake, dessert, and late night and... Read More everything was flawless. We did the flambe donut holes and the taco bar for late night - the donuts were made in front of us and the tortillas were warmed at the taco station. The servers were very attentive and made sure we had everything we need. They were professional and on top of it - our cups were never empty and we had PLENTY of food. I would definitely recommend them to others !

Incredible Service & Food for Bride on a Budget

Reviewed on 11/11/2015 Kaitlin F

As a bride-on-a-budget (under $15k for EVERYTHING for the wedding), it was important for me to determine the most important aspects of the wedding which deserved the most investment. My two choices for that were catering and photography. We had a unique, small wedding of 75... Read More guests on a rooftop in Chicago and hosted a cocktail style reception. All of our catered food was passed hors d'oeuvres. We chose simple foods (sliders, grilled cheese, quesadillas, mini cheese pizzas, etc.) and my favourite was the BBQ pulled pork on a corn fritter. I wouldn't say the food 'blew my mind' but it satisfied our classic tastes and I was more concerned about the quality of the cupcakes- which were purchased from a separate bakery. The service of the catering staff from Polonia was above and beyond my expectations. The catering staff at my wedding was incredibly friendly and helpful in every way possible. I couldn't have asked for a more warm and friendly crew. I also rented twenty white folding chairs, five cabaret cocktail tables, and five tall boy tables along with tablecloths and sashes chosen from a wide range of color options so that the ones I got matched my wedding colors perfectly! The staff arrived plenty early to get it all set up exactly where and how we wanted it and they did it all with a smile. My entire experience with Polonia was extremely positive and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for great service at a great price.

Polonia help to make our wedding dreams a reality. Holly and Brian were so easy to work with.

Read More garden. Then we went to the reception on the west side of the grounds to a tented room. They did such an amazing job making everything just flow so seamless. The food was excellent ! We received lots of great reviews from our guest.I came to Polonia with a lot of ideas and every time I emailed Holly or Brian asking if I could do this instead of that they would always make it happen! Both are a dream to work with. They are organized, energetic, and you can tell they really enjoy making every wedding what the Bride and Groom wants!! I had so many guests after our wedding compliment the venue/food/service/ Music overall good time they had all. Thanks so much Polonia ( Holly, Brian and staff) for making it a wonderful event!!! They can do it all!

The most talked about thing from our wedding reception was the food! Everyone raved at how good the food was and how great the service was from Polonia.

All the other details that Polonia handled for the reception went very smoothly including the set up, the linens, and even the extras like the cocktail tables we rented to put on an outdoor patio at the venue.

Not only did I use Polonia for my own wedding, I now host weddings at Konow's Farm and refer them to everyone. They are our number 1 vendor. I would never recommend a vendor if I did not like them or if their quality of service was not exceptional. Polonia is always on time,... Read More food is always just right, their service is top notch and the pricing is perfect for all types of weddings. I obviously think the world of them if I recommend them to all my brides and grooms. I do not stamp my name to any vendor, but for Polonia I would and do! They provide the coolest plates and real silverware. I have used them for over 15 events already and plan to continue to use them for every event we host at the farm, not to mention my own personal events. Best service, food and management around!!! Thank you Polonia for making ALL of my brides and grooms happy and for your dedication to the art of which you do. :)
