Hello Sarah, My niece was married on Saturday at the W Loft. I was responsible for sourcing the decor and flowers for the venue and as I’m sure you can appreciate, spent months and months in that process. So admittedly, I was a little nervous at the thought of handing everything off to a Day of Event Coordinator. Then I met Jada! Well I must tell you, Jada is a true gem! She is very professional, yet warm and so easy to work with. She exudes enthusiasm and energy and her attention to every little detail was remarkable. I was so impressed with her work, I felt I had to let you know. You are very fortunate to have someone like Jada representing your organization. Sincerely, Patty W.

Chantel is AMAZING. My fiance and I have a short engagement (6 months...yikes) and had absolutely no idea what we are doing. So working with a thoughtful, supportive, and direct, wedding planner has been a dream. She's always available for my crazy questions and when I start to spiral because I'm so overwhelmed with the wedding planning process. She has also gone above and beyond to help us generate ideas, identify our needs, and help us execute our vision. Our wedding is next month, so I will update this review, as I'm sure it's going to be amazing. She is also very sweet and offers encouragement when you're in the thick of it and want to strangle your partner. I CAN'T recommend Chantel enough. Whether you're someone who has been planning their wedding since they were young or someone who didn't ever plan to have a wedding, she will be the perfect fit for you.

Veronica is truly the best wedding coordinator out there. She and her team went above and beyond and my wedding day was absolutely perfect!! Veronica was involved with the wedding planning months beforehand (unlike most wedding coordinators I spoke to!) and she was so detailed and organized that she truly put my type-A personality at ease!!! I knew I was in the best of hands after our first conversation and on the wedding day I was completely relaxed because I knew I could trust her to handle any hiccups. She also did my floral arrangements and was present at all the meetings with the venue and caterer to make sure that everyone was aligned on my vision. When she showed me the reception hall before my guests arrived it took my breath away-- it was even better than I envisioned!!! Her eye for detail is incredible and my reception decorations were breathtaking. I also have to acknowledge Veronica's assistant Sharae because she too was the best ever-- I definitely walked away from my wedding weekend with a new best friend. Sharae kept me calm and laughing on my wedding day and made the entire pre-ceremony experience SO MUCH FUN!!! Honestly, my wedding day would have felt much different if Sharae wasn't there. I actually got emotional saying goodbye because she was such an important part of my day too. I never thought I would grow so close to a wedding vendor, but I now consider Veronica, Sharae, and the entire Exquisitely Designed Events team like family. They truly made my wedding the best day ever!!!

BW Studio+Events is a Chicago-based event coordination and planning group serving Chicagoland and surrounding suburbs. The Studio focuses on intimate weddings with unique flair and lots of personal touches. Blair founded BW Studio after hosting a number of non-profit events and finding herself completely immersed in the process. Once she realized her knack for event organization and planning, the studio was quickly born.

Awarded Best of Zola
It’s hard to put into words the value that Blair added to our wedding experience. Not just the day of, but the whole planning process. We interviewed over 10 wedding planners before settling on Blair. As soon as we got off our info call with her, we knew we wanted to book her, and boy were we right to do so. She made our 200-person wedding an absolute dream. From the get go, Blair fully immersed herself in understanding our wedding vision. Specifically, she jumped in to learn about the nuances of our multicultural wedding traditions (Assyrian & Jewish), and was genuinely excited to do so. Meeting with Blair was always a joy. She was flexible in her scheduling and always showed up to our sessions prepared and with a smile. Blair did an impeccable job in assisting us with vendor selection. She did not bat an eye when we wanted more options, and I’m overjoyed to say that every single vendor we worked with under her recommendation was superb, above and beyond our wildest dreams. Our one vendor who fell short, our tuxedo rental company for the groomsmen, was a recommendation from a friend, not Blair, and when they fell short, Blair pulled out all the stops to get them back on track for us. In the months leading up to the wedding, Blair assured me every step of the way. Through every panicked email from me and crazy planning call with my maid of honor and family, Blair was professional and understanding, never making me feel like I was inconveniencing her or that my worries were silly. No question was too small or too repetitive for Blair, nor was she phased by any of the pre-wedding snafus that inevitably come up when planning a large-scale event. On the day of, Blair was a vision of calm competence, as was her incredible team of planners. She was focused and did not take her eye from the ball for a second. She coordinated myriad vendors while making sure I remained unaware of any snafus, which she fixed immediately with no one noticing. She made sure the bridal party was in check and kept us on schedule without making us feel like we were rushing any important parts of the day. She assisted me and my maid of honor in bustling my dress and even had a member of her team go back to the hotel for some items we’d accidentally left behind. After two years of planning, I was able to fully be present in and enjoy my wedding day because of Blair. I will sing Blair’s praises to anyone who will listen, including one of my best friends and my now-husband’s cousin who have both hired her for their weddings. She went above and beyond in every way and was an absolute delight the whole time. After the wedding, multiple guests told me they want to be friends with my wedding planner, and honestly, same. THANK YOU, Blair, for everything. - Nika (& Josh)

I was planning my backyard wedding and reached out to a few different day of coordinators. Kimberly responded immediately. She has been an amazing communicator, full of awesome ideas, and always went above and beyond despite just being our “day of”. We finally met at my rehearsal and she was so nice and truly worked nonstop to get everything ready. I heard so many comments about what an amazing job she was doing before and during our wedding. She helped make cocktails, set tables, suggested awesome ideas, saw the vision, went on a Trader Joe’s flower run, poured champagne, cut the cake, etc etc and made sure everything was running smoothly. To say this was a huge help would be an understatement. She is awesome and I can’t recommend her enough if you are planning your wedding!

Neither my husband nor I had been in a wedding, so we had no idea what we were doing when we began planning. We hired SEG for full-service planning, and we were so impressed by the time and resources made available to us. Our planner, Hanh, was so organized and attentive throughout the process. She was able to provide us with so many ideas to make our vision come true, and she knew to ask the vendors questions we never would have even thought of. She even went above and beyond on the day of, in ways such as helping bustle my dress which my mom and I couldn't figure out. The wedding workbook, especially the checklist organized by time out from the wedding, was so helpful in giving us a visual representation of everything we needed to do. Overall, hiring SEG full-service was well worth the money, and we highly recommend them for anyone who doesn't have the time or experience to plan their wedding themselves!

Awarded Best of Zola
With about 9 months till my wedding and so much left to do, we looked for help. I found Rojin on Zola and she was not only highly rated, but incredibly affordable compared to the other planners. We scheduled a meeting with Rojin and she was the only one who didn’t shy away from my non-traditional ways and ideas. She basically had the job right then and there. From that moment, the wedding finally seemed to start taking shape. Rojin scheduled a meeting with me once a month to go over everything. She would check in on my frequently to see if I had completed other tasks. I worked full time and ran my household so it was a blessing to have someone looking out for me. She was the organized part of me that was too overwhelmed to really connect my vision. She listened to me complain and cry about everything, offered calming and found advise, and defended my dreams from start to finish. I would tell Rojin I wanted XYZ, and every time she knows me that what I wanted was possible. When you finally get to meet Rojin, she really gives off this calming and yet confident air to her, you couldn’t help but feel that all this stress was worth it. And it was. Because of Rojin, the days leading up to my wedding were not only effortless, but smooth. The morning of my ceremony, I got to do exactly what I wanted, relaxed, ate with family/friends, existed in this exciting day. Her day of coordination was wonderful and perfect, she remembered everything I didn’t and even stayed after her scheduled time to just be with the guest! The most special was, she stayed long enough for my bride and I to have our last dance. I would recommend Rojin’s bridal services to any bride who needs a friend who knows what they are doing. I wouldn’t of had my dream wedding had Rojin not been involved. So thank you, Rojin!

Let's face it, events are stressful. You plan for months and it all comes down to (what feels like) a few moments. There are vendors to meet, venues to research, staff or volunteers to coordinate, and favors to place on everyone's seat. Whether it's your wedding, anniversary, business retreat, or corporate meeting, we work with you to make your vision a reality for your events!

I reached out to so many planners/coordinators for my wedding and so many were either slow to respond or did not respond at all. Chelsea was prompt and excited to help, despite my wedding being quite the undertaking. I did my own (faux) flowers, which meant on top of regular day-of duties, she was putting up full floral arrangements, lighting hundreds of candles, and putting together tons of other small details and finishing touches. I can't emphasize this enough - our day would not have come together in the way that it did without her. She was on top of everything and truly made my vision come to life. She was helpful in dealing with other vendors as well, and did everything with a smile on her face. When I came to her days before my wedding with a crazy new surprise, she was down to help. My husband agrees that Chelsea was worth her weight in gold - I would hire her again in a heartbeat. Thank you so much Chelsea for everything you did to make our wedding day go so smoothly.

We were born from lessons learned by tackling the most important wedding to date; my own. A planner to my core, I never considered the need for assistance when planning and executing my wedding. And while I threw a truly great party, it came at the expense of me enjoying my own wedding. I took away from the experience the hard truth that just because I could, didn’t mean I should, and have turned that into something that I truly love; watching other couples bask in their moment, stress-free. We offer a variety of wedding and honeymoon services with the simple mission of creating beautiful, unique events that feel as good as they look.

Lisa was a godsend for my wedding. A lot of planners I had consulted with were a little antiquated and wanted to force their vision upon me. I had already secured a handful of major items for my wedding: venue, food, music, photographer. Lisa was so helpful as she provides a new fresh prospective to planning and executing - conscious of both style and budget. She's highly adept at being both extremely down to earth and approachable yet highly professional when dealing with difficult vendors. In the end, Lisa helped me finalize all of the nitty gritty details for the wedding weekend and executed everything flawlessly. I'd highly recommend her services and support for your planning needs!

I am not sure what I would have done without Annie. I felt a huge load off my shoulders as soon as I hired her to help me plan my wedding that turned out amazing this past weekend 4/20/2024. She went above and beyond. Always checking in communicating with me . Quick to respond! She lives in Boston and the wedding was in FL yet she was easily available if I needed. (That says a lot about her) I gave her A LOT of information and she remembered it all for the wedding. Best investment I made was hiring Before You Say I Do . She was super organized, thoughtful and experienced! There were things she knew to look out for that I hadn’t thought of. Annie truly loves what she does and it shows in her work. She is passionate and patient! Annie, I am so grateful that I found you thank you so much! There’s so much I can say on this but it be like writing a book. 10/10 recommend She also works with your budget and is willing to do a budget plan if needed!!

Was referred to ESA from someone in my opinion whom was less than professional in her communication. So there was a little trepidation at first. However, from our first interaction with Christena at ESA to the end of the event Christena conducted herself in a professional and exceptional manner. From her initial communication, to vendor recommendations to all of the questionnaires to ensure the events moved smoothly were all investments that showed Christena cared. We used ESA for day of wedding coordination as well as a surprise birthday party the day before the wedding g. Yep, busy, busy, busy. Christena was there for a walk through at the venue which was 2 hours from her home base. She stayed in contact throughout the months leading up the the events and take the lead with vendor a onto or so before. She helped to keep us on track and was available via email with short turn around times. Although their was a LOT of planning prior to the wedding, Christena was more than helpful keeping us on track and ensuring the wedding day could be enjoyed without worrying about last minute pop up issues, and there were a few. Her team was able to resolve a bartender issue causing minimal interruption for guests. In the end Christena felt more like a guest as much as a vendor for each event. We are grateful for the service Christena provided and would highly recommend her and her company, ESA to anyone wanting a coordinator to help ease the stresses of such and important and joyous day!!

Tia is INCREDIBLE! Hiring Tia was hands down the best decision we made in our wedding planning, and we can’t imagine our wedding without her. Tia planned our friends’ wedding a few years ago, and I was so impressed with her eye for design and how attentive she was to every detail – not to mention that teardown at the end of the night was lightning fast! She orchestrated everything expertly, her team is very efficient, and as members of the wedding party, we didn’t have to worry about anything – we were able to just have fun! When we began planning our own wedding, our number one goal was ease – for ourselves and our family and friends. We didn’t want our loved ones (or us!) to have the stress of arranging and decorating the venue the day of the wedding. We trusted Tia completely to manage the day with care and she knocked it out of the park!! During the planning process, Tia was very easy to work with – she is incredibly organized, a great communicator, very responsive, and multiple vendors commented on how much they enjoyed working with her too. While we were balancing demands from work and home, she kept us on track with planning in a kind way and made it easy for us to know what to focus on next. On the day of our wedding, Tia made sure that everything went off as planned – or even better! It was such a gift to walk into the wedding venue and have every careful detail be executed better than I could have envisioned. Because of her, we were able to be fully present throughout our wedding day with our family and friends, knowing that she and the Capstone Occasions team had everything handled. Our wedding was an absolute dream, and Tia was such a big part of that – we are so grateful!

My passion for weddings and events grew, and I began helping friends and family with their weddings. Now, I run my own business! There is nothing I love more than seeing an idea come to life! When I'm not planning weddings, you'll find me cuddling with my baby, enjoying the show Friends under a cozy blanket, or sharing a meal with a glass (or two) of wine with my husband. I'd love to chat and learn more about you!

Becca was an amazing support throughout our wedding planning journey. She was always available to answer our questions and guide us through the process of planning our wedding. Her experience and wedding planner binder helped us stay organized and on track.

America is such an amazing person to work with. Wanted to have a wedding of about 150 people in the Chicago Metropolitan area and a budget of 22,000 USD (just wanna say that keeping to the budget was my main goal). This can be typically difficult given the cost of venues and things in the Chicago area. America helped find a glamorous ball-style venue (my preference) that also had an outside lake as a great view for the ceremony. The venue also catered to most of the other needs at a reasonable price. Furthermore, we met regularly with America to go over what our expectations of each vendor would be, and with a great understanding of what we wanted, she was resourceful in getting the appropriate vendors and negotiating a good price with them. She made sure that within the short period of planning (we contacted her about 4 months before the wedding), every step of the plan towards the wedding day was carried out in a timely manner with nothing left unattended to... I mean nothing. On the day of the wedding, she drew up a great timeline and went above and beyond to ensure all went according to plan timely and we were not stressed out. It was such a good and memorable event that we received numerous compliments on it. With her being very affordable for the service she gives and she being intentionally involved in everything, we definitely kept to budget and had better than the wedding we had hoped for. She was on top of her game from start to finish . She isn't only an event planner to us but is also a friend. I thank God for you america and for all you did. These few words cannot fully explain how excellent you are in what you do.

We are a team made up of creative people who are skilled in the art of event planning and design. We are always looking for ways to think outside the box and do the unexpected. Fierce Productions was founded in 2015 by Laura Reitsma, proud Cuban-American Owner. Laura dreamt of creating an event production company that was fueled by her love of the theater. She wanted to make an impact and start a business that could give back to LGBTQIAP and theater communities.

It's hard to put to words how much we appreciate Laura and the Fierce team, so we'll just share the text we sent Laura the day after our wedding: "Laura, it feels like the most common piece of advice people give about weddings is that, 'something will go wrong, just expect that'. However, you delivered a perfect wedding. We wouldn’t have changed a single thing. What you accomplished was absolutely extraordinary. Complete magic. We thought we knew exactly what to expect, but it was so much more than we dreamed of. We are so proud of what we created with you. It left guests feeling so grateful to have experienced something so unique and loving. They’re saying it was the coolest experience and best party they’ve ever been to." A few other highlights of working with Laura and the Fierce Team: - She doesn't just see it as her job to plan the wedding; she sees it as her job to allow you to be present during the big day. Many say "it all went so fast," when remembering their wedding, but it didn't feel like that for us because Laura made sure we could be present. - She respected our vision like it was her own and protected every piece of it. - By the time the wedding arrived, she was our friend--not a vendor. And that made the experience that day even cooler. Imagine having your friend send you down the aisle...rather than someone your hired. We would hire Fierce a million times over.

Colleen spared us a lot of stress, and we’re so grateful that she allowed us to be in the moment and enjoy every minute of the day. So many people in my bridal party / other guests at the wedding mentioned how amazing Colleen was!! The bridal party / other VIP's LOVED the detailed timeline/itinerary that Colleen prepared and distributed prior to the wedding. People knew where to be and when, and didn't have to reach out to me with small questions as a result. People around us noticed and appreciated all that she and her team did, and we certainly did, too. AND, Colleen did it all with a calming presence and a smile on her face. We were so impressed. Colleen and Joan humored my many overly detailed questions, requests, anxieties, etc.! I honestly felt like nothing slipped through the cracks on our wedding weekend because Colleen and her team were there to catch it all. She remembered and honored everything we mentioned to her over the past few months (which was A LOT!)! We could go on and on... 100% recommend Five Grain Events and Colleen Fahy was an absolute GEM.

At Cylee Catherine Events, we believe in planning and coordinating events so that the hosts are able to enjoy the moments that will one day be their favorite memories to look back on. Throughout the planning process, I do my best to listen to your ideas and help bring forward the vision for your special day that you are trying to achieve with a flawless execution.

I don’t even know where to begin to thank Cylee for the amazing job she did at our wedding. I originally had another planner that made me dread planning my wedding. 3 weeks prior to the wedding I decided to drop the old planner and go with Cylee, who was introduced to me by my photographer Arleigh. From the first meeting Cylee left such a great impression on both my husband and I. She was so organized, professional , and had a clear list of what needed to get done. The 3 weeks prior to the wedding went by so fast, but Cylee made those last 3 weeks feel like such a breeze. She communicated between the vendors and us, and always kept us informed on every little step. She made all the calls and emails, which really helped us so much. The day of the rehearsal, she came with copies of the timeline for all of us. She went through every detail and walked us through the game plan of the day. Later that night she checked in with me to see how we were doing. Even just the small sincere gesture of a simple text with words of encouragement, was more than enough to ease our minds for the big day. I have no words to describe just how magical and perfect the day of the wedding was. Cylee came bright and early to help with decor, vendors, a stressed out bride and stressed out parents. She was always coming in to check up on me, while still coordinating everything else. She was literally with us every step of the way. Our venue required a room flip, and she handled it with such speed and perfection. When we were introduced and walked in to the dinner area for the first time, I could not believe how beautiful she had arranged everything. I had no plan for the sweetheart table, but she arranged it so beautifully I felt like I was in a fairytale. My husband is not much of the dreamer type, but even he said that, he finally understood what it felt like to describe something as magical and dreamy. Cylee did such an amazing job that I had many guest come up to me to say how wonderful she was. Everyone loved her! And We loved her! Cylee is so kind, sincere, organized, passionate, caring and overall just an amazing person to have in your life. Her planning services were worth every penny. Because of her, our wedding came out better than we had ever imagined, and we created memories of a lifetime. She exceeded every expectation and honestly you will not regret hiring Cylee.

Our wedding day was absolutely magical and we owe it all to Katie from Willow and Waylon Events. From the moment we met Katie, her commitment to perfection and attention to detail shone through every step of the way which spoke to my very type A personality. She truly made the whole experience stress-free by keeping us on a timeline, keeping track of all of our vendors and given that we both have very hectic work schedules on top of moving out of state prior to the wedding, she dealt with all of the vendors for us. Not to mention when one coordinator from one of our vendors was not meeting her standards, she took to initiative to rectify the situation by contacting the company and changing coordinators for us to ensure we had the best possible experience. She was with us every step of the way with multiple regular check-ins over the year of planning and was by my side through the wedding day as a calming presence to keep everyone on track. She was always available via zoom, phone or text. She thought of things we didn't know we needed to think about and helped to suggest vendors when we didn't know who to choose in our price point. Above all, she is such a kind and thoughtful human being and in general, lovely to work with. I can't give Katie and her company higher praise, I would not have been able to get through planning our wedding and wedding day without her.

Bristol was an incredible partner for us during the planning and execution of our wedding. She and her team worked hard to make sure the process was as painless as possible while keeping us on-track and realistic. We particularly appreciated her design plan, which wound up influencing a wide variety of thematic elements and giving our concept some much-needed clarity. She also helped us locate several of our amazing (and eco-conscious) vendors, some of whom we wouldn't have otherwise even known about. Maybe most meaningfully, we appreciated her willingness to jump in and help us catch up. As a queer couple, neither of us had been planning our wedding since childhood and there was a lot we didn't know. Her Chicago wedding expertise and experience were invaluable to us. A not insubstantial number of our guests said ours was one of the best weddings they'd ever attended, and we'd have to agree. Bristol gets the lion's share of the credit for that.
