Without A Hitch Event Decor Co.

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!

Every Little Thing

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.

Awarded Best of Zola
Jojo 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. Jojo 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 Jojo 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 (including what was needed for the traditional wedding given we are Nigerians). 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 A to Z. She isn't only an event planner to us but is also a friend. I thank God for you Jojo and for all you did. These few words cannot fully explain how excellent you are in what you do.

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.

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. Weddings are my passion because they involve so much coordinated detail in every phase of the day from start to finish. 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.

I was that person that did not think I needed a wedding planner! I decided last minute I needed one and I had interviewed 4 people and Christena was the only one that made me feel comfortable! Christena helped keep me organized, in control, and confident that I would be able to get through this! She brought things to my attention that I had no clue I needed to do. During the rehearsal dinner she got everyone in line and made sure everyone knew exactly what they were doing. The day of the wedding Christena and her assistant Jill knew literally handled everything from making sure my vision was brought to life, to making sure everything ran accordingly to plan, and making sure all items that were mine were organized and set aside for my family to gather at the end of the night. I cannot sing Christena’s praises enough! You are getting more than a wedding planner with her! If you are on the fence about this do not be, it is the best money well spent!!!

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.

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.

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.

It was as if she had plucked our visions from our minds and turned them into reality. The flow of the event was seamless, leaving us and our guests to fully immerse ourselves in the magic of the day. Amber's presence was calming and reassuring, allowing us to savor every moment without worry. From the ceremony to the reception, everything unfolded with ease and we owe it all to Amber's expertise and passion. Amber's warm and personable nature was a delightful bonus. Throughout the planning process, she was not just a wedding coordinator but a friend who genuinely cared about making our day special. Her positive energy and infectious enthusiasm made the experience enjoyable and stress-free, and we felt like we were in the best hands possible. Our wedding day was an absolute fairytale.

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.

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 would hire Isabel ten times over. My only regret was not hiding her as a full time coordinator instead of just the day of. It’s worth it, people. If you are planning a wedding, I don’t care how much “help” from non-professionals you have…hire a dang coordinator.

I worked a beautiful St. Simons wedding with Georgia, and her and her wife were an absolute joy to work with. Georgia was organized, professional, and made sure everything went off without a hitch. She leads her business with inclusivity at the forefront. This is a priority that is high for me as well, and I highly recommend her for any LGBTQ weddings in particular. It can be hard to find inclusive vendors, and Georgia goes above & beyond.

I had the absolute pleasure of working with Jaime for her own wedding. Throughout our year of working together, I learned that Jaime is a planner and photographer herself. While myself and my team prides ourselves on our organization, Jaime certainly made our job seamless with her communication and organization! Jaime was initially our client but quickly become a friendor (friendvendor). Since her wedding, Jaime and I have had the opportunity to continue to work together on other weddings and projects. Her attention to detail, organization and communication is top notch. She is extremely passionate, talented and so kind. This is the type of person you want in your corner on your wedding day! As a vendor, I highly recommend her and I'm always so pleased when we have the opportunity to team up together!

Katie works to take care of the details, allowing you to relax and focus on creating memories with your loved ones. Whether you are planning an intimate gathering or an extravagant affair, she can assist with weddings of all sizes.

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.

Hey, I’m Melissa. I’ve been producing live events for 12 years. From large theatrical stage shows to public festivals and concerts, from weddings to private parties, my expertise is vast and has given me the tools to produce excellent events. I’m a logistics junkie. Creating a timeline that makes sense and a flow that feels organic makes the guest experience unforgettable.

I've been so lucky to team up with Melissa on a couple wedding events over the years. 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.

Barbara's team sets a gold star standard bar in the wedding planning industry.

Her beautiful, creative design sense also helped us put together a perfect vibe for the venue for our memorable, special day. We feel very blessed to have found her to help us navigate through the planning stage leading up to our big day. She was spot on when she told us in the beginning “ All you have to do is show up and have fun! “ That’s exactly what happened, we didn’t have to worry about a thing.
