Without A Hitch Event Decor Co.

5.0

Verona, IL
  • Offers 3 services
  • Starts at $1,750

Without A Hitch specializes in event rentals and wedding management. Husband and Wife duo, Austin and Kelsey created Without A Hitch Event Decor Co. in 2020 after seeing a need for more decor rental businesses. While planning their own wedding, Kelsey often asked herself why people spent so much time and money accumulating and storing decor, transporting items, and setting up/tearing down their own decor. This can add extra stress on a day that you should be able to fully enjoy. Which is why Without A Hitch offers wedding management, full styling, delivery, set up and tear down. We pride ourselves in providing services that fit your needs.

Awarded Best of Zola
I used WAH for my wedding and I was extremely satisfied with the entire service. Kelsey acted as our decorator and day of coordinator. She was the best person I can think of to help bring my wedding to fruition. She listened to what I wanted my wedding to look like and helped make it happen. She found amazing decor, was calm and collected, and brought everything together so well. I've recommended her countless times and I will continue to do so moving forward as she knows exactly how to handle every situation. Without a Hitch is by far one of the best choices you can make for your big day!

In 2019, I had no idea what I wanted to do or where I wanted to go after high school. Then, I planned my sister's bridal shower and made DIY crafts for her wedding. That is how my path of becoming a wedding and event planner started . I was in love with creating, organizing, and giving ideas.

We worked with Ashley for our past wedding we just did recently for Lauren & Dominic at the Drury Lane in Oak Brook, IL. There’s so much I can say about Ashley (owner of Every Little Thing). She’s super sweet, easy to work with, and very on-top of everything throughout the day of. We appreciate that. It was so great working with her! Definitely recommend for your next wedding!!!

Cylee Catherine Events

Wilmington, IL
  • Offers 3 services
  • Starts at $1,500

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.

Hi there! I am Emily and I am so excited you found your way here. I have a passion for curating one-of-a-kind weddings that showcase a couple’s individuality. It is important for me to get to know couple’s personally, what makes them excited about their wedding day and how I can alleviate any planning stress (ew, we don’t want stress). Consider me your right-hand gal, your “planner in your pocket”, your sounding board and the gal that will make sure your wedding day is flawless!

Awarded Best of Zola
If you’re looking to enjoy your wedding day and the process that comes with planning, don’t hesitate - book Emily! Weddings are insane, wedding culture has become so toxic.. but it doesn’t need to be your experience! My fiancé and I worked with Emily for our Oct 2023 wedding for 16 months. I knew I needed to contact her after being a bridesmaid in my best friend’s wedding where Emily was the planner. Emily is clear with her services, expectations from both sides, and her pricing. You can tell that she loves what she does. Her pricing for services are well worth it. A wedding is a huge investment - spending a little extra to have a professional with a calm demeanor plan your wedding with you and execute the day of.. it’s priceless. From the start, she talked with us to understand what we wanted and didn’t want. Mind you, we have never planned a wedding but she has! Incredibly patient. Emily scoped out all of our vendors according to the budget we set together. She came to all calls with vendors and helped us to choose the venue. She knew all questions to ask and also networked right before our eyes! Our vendors were vetted and some even already knew Emily and worked directly with them. Emily is also a fantastic mother who balanced being a new mom and a planner at the same time. The day of our wedding, she was calm and never showed an ounce of worry or stress. She took the reigns for every aspect and didn’t allow me to lift a finger. There is so much more to say and not enough time in the day. Most of my friends cried and stressed for months over what should be the best day of their lives, while I enjoyed working with Emily. I can’t wait to use her for a baby shower in the futures.

Lindsay not only plans weddings for our Simply Elegant couples but also trains our entire team of planners to ensure that every Simply Elegant wedding is flawless and our client's vision is fulfilled.

Our coordinator, Hanh, was absolutely marvelous! She was attentive, fun, and made us feel so taken care of. We used SEG for their day-of coordinator services, but Hanh made it feel like so much more. I would highly recommend her! The deducted star was due to some communication difficulties we had with SEG (not Hanh!). We had a coordinator originally assigned to us, but when one of our vendors couldn't get a hold of our original coordinator, we reached out to SEG and found out that coordinator was no longer with SEG. I wish SEG had been proactive in letting us know when our coordinator left; even though we only had day-of services, our vendors still needed our contact from SEG in the months before the wedding.

Emma was incredibly helpful on and before our wedding day.

Emma created a custom package that fit our specific needs and it was perfect! Aside from that she was so kind, professional, and attentive even in a few meetings we had with the venue before the day. If I could do wedding planning over knowing what I know now, I would've found her sooner to include her expertise even more in our planning / day! Thank you Emma!

Chelsea helped me plan and throw a Morocco-themed graduation party with 75 attendees, and I honestly don’t think I could have done it without her. I am really good at having ideas, but less good at execution as I get overwhelmed. Chelsea helped me find a location and vendors, as well as designing the decorations. Chelsea was chill and friendly while still executing to perfection. 10/10 would hire again!

I 100% recommend Sarah! My biggest regret of my wedding was not finding and hiring her sooner! During our consultation (and every call or text afterwards) I felt like I was talking to a friend. You can tell she truly loves what she does. She took SO much stress off me and my family. She created our day of plan, set up the decor, took it down, brought gifts to our car, was the main contact for vendors and so much more. Even my dad who is a money pincher said he was really glad we had her the day of. She also helped direct our rehearsal. Having a huge party that really helped! Seriously hire her ASAP! I’ve told everyone I’ve talked to about the wedding how amazing she is and I will tell my friends again once it’s their turn to get married. My family and I could enjoy ourselves the whole day because we could trust all the logistics were handled by Sarah. Best decision I made while planning. Thank you so much!!

Franklin went above and beyond and I’d give him more than 5 stars if I could! He was there for us not just the “day of,” but a full month prior to our wedding. He delivered much more value than what we’d expected when we signed with him. He struck just the right balance between professionalism and being friendly. He came off has professional and gave us confidence from the start that he would get the job done well, but we also appreciated that we could laugh together and that he felt like a friend. I think he’s good at reading couples and likely calibrates his approach based on the couple’s comfort level; he did so perfectly with us! Franklin’s excellent communication skills made the whole process that much easier. He made sure he captured every detail that was important to the success of our wedding (or just important to us) in a definitive document that became the gold standard for the day’s plan. Collecting this information, compiling it, adding some most-welcome suggestions, and making sure all the vendors were on the same page were instrumental to everything running smoothly and exceeded our expectations. This is where he shined most brightly and we could clearly see him dedicating time and energy to our event a full month prior to the big day. The basic requirement of a day-of coordinator is that they keep the day running smoothly. Franklin did everything humanly possible to achieve that. But moreover, he was generous with his ideas and really enhanced what we were planning. We set out to plan an original, somewhat untraditional event and he served as a great counselor, leading us away from potential pitfalls and toward ideas that wouldn’t have occurred to us otherwise. Highly recommend!

I started coordinating/event planning in 2017 by creating, managing, and executing my own nurses brunch which started as a 12 person event and now has grown to hosting over 150 attendees annually. Over the last 3 years I've had the pleasure to plan, coordinate, and execute multiple weddings. What started as a personal hobby has transitioned into a business, and It has been a pleasure to be able to serve couples on their big day.

Kylie has been organizing and executing an annual nurses brunch for the past 7 years without issue! She has been able to work with over 140 nurses in this event. She has been very organized and efficient through the event. Kylie is punctual and helpful for those in need at each event. We have felt from the planning to the execution, Kylie has been helpful and it’s been a pleasure to have her on board for our event. Ive also witnessed her in the wedding coordinator space and I’ve been blown away. Again, she’s organized, useful, innovative, and helpful!

Working out of Lombard, IL, I am a type A planner from the very center of my heart. I love lists, schedules, budgets, and all things organized.

I love to see my client's vision for their special day come together with every check off the to do list. I have been coordinating weddings since early 2018, but have been networking in the industry for several years now. I love working with all of the gorgeous venues we have here in the suburbs of Chicago and can't wait to get started planning your dream wedding.

I wish I could give Bre more stars because she is AMAZING! My wedding day went so smoothly because of her. I had a lot of decorations and plans for how I wanted the night to go, and she executed everything I asked for and more! She had amazing ideas to share and add to my special day too! I give Bre my highest recommendation for any bride-to-be! Thank you Bre for allowing me to enjoy my wedding day without a worry! You are truly an incredible person!

Planning Weddings That Are Perfectly You You finally found the one you can’t live without. And your love? It’s one of a kind. Your wedding should be, too. That’s why you can’t waste your precious engagement planning a Pinterest wedding or following a cookie-cutter wedding template. Your love story deserves to be told in a unique, tailored-to-you, one-in-a-million way. It should be a day that illustrates your individual personalities and shows your guests what kind of life you’ll build together. It should be elegant and sophisticated — just like you.

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!!

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.

  • Serves Kankakee, IL

Fierce Productions is a wedding planning and event production company that specializes in creating unique, unforgettable experiences in Chicago, Miami and beyond. 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.

Our wedding day was so much fun, and we are so grateful to Laura and Olivia for making it possible! When we got engaged, we knew some of the things we wanted to be a part of our wedding, and some of the things we didn’t — but we had no idea how to put it all together. We also knew that we wanted to have the kind of wedding that requires a lot of preparation, but that we didn’t want have wedding planning become second jobs for us. We tried out a couple wedding planners, and eventually we sat down with Laura. She methodically worked with us on how to turn all the things we like and care about and that unite as a couple into a wonderful and perfect wedding — and helped us organize it all into manageable chunks with a clear timeline. We started our wedding planning with Laura and Olivia, and eventually when Laura went on maternity leave we stayed with Olivia for the rest of our journey. Each had their own personal touches and ways of working, but both were incredibly professional, helpful, and organized. We often showed up to meetings knowing the general vibes that we wanted, not necessarily specifics or even how to express those “vibes”, and Laura and Olivia turned those into concrete vendors, choices, and timelines. In the end, we made it through planning without it ever feeling like a second job, and we were in a great position to enjoy the most perfect wedding we could imagine: a big party with all our favorite people, and all our favorite things, celebrating what we love most about each other. More on the big day: Olivia and team managed the day exceptionally well. Everything was in place without us ever having to worry about a single thing. The day was fun and light, from getting dressed and having photos taken all over the city, all the way through the end of the night. Throughout the day, we kept getting asked how we found our amazing venue, caterers, photographer, DJ, florist… the list goes on. Each and every one of them was recommended by Laura. She did a great job of recommending a few vendors that she knew and trusted that fit with our vision for our wedding day, and each one of them did a phenomenal job. Our food was delicious, our music was a hit, and the decorations were beautiful, and we weren’t worried at all on the day. Days and weeks after the wedding, we’re still a little shocked: we knew this would be a party with our favorite people and favorite things, but even we didn’t expect the end result to be so much fun.

We support our clients’ desired goals in ways that make the most sense for each creative vision. We focus on managing all the logistical details – timelines, contract reviews, set up – to ensure nothing falls through the cracks on your big day.

Colleen Fahy was our coordinator, and she was absolutely incredible. Her guidance, her input, her sweet personality, her organizational skills, her foresight, her patience, her flexibility, her thoughtfulness, her ability to put us at ease… all made her so wonderful to work with. I didn’t worry about a single thing on wedding day, because I truly trusted that Colleen had helped us prepare so well, and that anything that would come up she would handle. And she sure did!! Colleen handled a lot of issues that arose on wedding day without us knowing!! She handled all communication with our vendors leading up to the wedding which was a HUGE burden off of our shoulders. 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.

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.

I was having a small wedding (35 people) and felt pretty confident to get the major things planned (vendors, big ideas, etc). However, I started to get really overwhelmed when it came down to the small details and executing them all and decided it would be a good idea to get a day/month-of coordinator. What a life saver!!!! Isabel and the rest of her team were SO kind, supportive, and on top of things. Additionally, they do rentals which ended up working so well with the vision I had for the day. Day of, I basically had nothing to worry about and could focus solely on getting ready and spending time with everyone I loved. I felt so supported and knew if anything were to come up, Isabel and her team would handle it! Everything was so perfect and if I did it again I'd hire TYR every single time :)

I’m a logistics junkie. Creating a timeline that makes sense and a flow that feels organic makes the guest experience unforgettable.

One in particular I watched her display and arrange literally hundreds of toys and comic book trinkets for a wedding reception. She is timely, responsive, trusting and really sets expectations and the foundation for a smooth wedding day. She knows her venues very well and I love the care and respect that she has for her couples. Melissa is the best!

Sophia was an absolutely wonderful wedding planner. She thought of all of the details that needed taking care of to make our wedding truly as stress-free as a wedding can be, while still making sure that we had input in all of the important decisions. The result was a beautiful ceremony and reception that went off without a hitch, deeply reflected who both of us are individually and as a couple, and left multiple guests telling us afterwards that it was one of their favorite weddings they had ever been to.

Maya was super wonderful for our wedding, she was the only person we met with for wedding planners that genuinely cared about us and what we wanted for our big day. She was super helpful with pulling everything together and helping us hunt down any missing pieces we wanted. She was super on top of stuff but was still able to have fun with us and bring everything so beautifully together. She also had my back through the whole process because there was other stuff going on with my family and she was there for me and was ready to help me out with whatever I needed to help deal with all of it. She was so amazing and I would recommend her a million times over to anyone.
