AGD Made Our Day Beautiful

We worked with Cassandra for our June 2022 wedding, and I am so glad we did! She was so kind and easy to work with. She made the whole process so easy. She listened to all our requests, and helped fill in the gaps with amazing suggestions when we weren’t totally sure what we wanted. She really brought our vision to life, and our day was more beautiful than I could have imagined!

Look no further!

The absolute BEST! There is not much more we can say to sum it all up! My husband and I worked with Stephanie at Anthony Gowder Designs for our February 2019 wedding and could not be happier with our decision. From the moment we met Stephanie until the moment we walked into our venue on our wedding day, we knew she would do everything possible to make our visions come to life! She exceed ALL of our expectations. Stephanie is vibrant, professional, communicative, has strong attention to detail & truly wants the best for her clients—not only qualities that we admired, but also greatly appreciated while planning our wedding.

Our first meeting with Stephanie consisted of listening to our wedding ideas and narrowing down what exactly we were looking for when it came to floral arrangements, centerpieces, lighting, etc. Our second meeting was our “mock showing.” Stephanie had created a mockup of our wedding day and truly brought our visions to life. Our family was extremely important and involved throughout the wedding planning process and Stephanie was more than accommodating and understanding with all of our requests. She worked with our budget, gave recommendations & truly had our best interest in mind.

We are forever grateful that we chose Stephanie and the Anthony Gowder Design team to be a special part of our wedding day! Thank you for all of your hard work and for making our day a dream come true! XO- Jordan and Caitlin

When in doubt...

There is no doubt...Choose Cassandra Vack of Anthony Gowder Designs! I am a professional Chicagoland officiant who has worked with Cassandra on two weddings thus far: One at the Palmer House and the other at InterContinental Chicago Magnificent Mile. Both weddings were challenging in their own way... the each had large parties, fun personalities, different languages, different faiths, and in the case of the Palmer House wedding... a lot of alcohol. Cassandra was wonderfully kind, enjoyably professional, helpful, organized, and appropriately assertive when necessary. In short, she was the epitome of grace under pressure. Everything went off seemingly effortlessly and without a hitch. There was nothing but laughter and tears, hugs and kisses, because of Cassandra's stellar work. I look forward to the opportunity to work with Cassandra again toward another flawless wedding! -Rev. Brad,
