Blue Moon Events is a wedding and event planning company located in Algonquin, Illinois. The business is operated by husband-and-wife team Jeff and Jenny MacBeard, who strive to design and implement couples' envisioned events. The planners at the company specialize in day-of coordination packages, which are designed to maintain each couple's relaxation and keep wedding-day chaos at bay.
The basic day-of coordination collection offered by Blue Moon Events includes a month of unlimited email and phone support, an event blueprint, an event emergency kit, and select savings on Minted Wedding goods. The event blueprint will offer a draft of timelines, vendor information, venue layout, and more. When the special day arrives, couples will be assisted by two event planners for up to 12 hours. The team will oversee setup and cleanup services to ensure that the entire event runs smoothly. Couples can also choose a blueprint-only package, which does not encompass day-of coordination. Instead, this service consists of support throughout the month leading up to the wedding. Jeff and Jenny can provide their valuable wedding-preparation amenities for rehearsal dinners, ceremonies, and receptions. In addition to their package offerings, they can supply the following quintessential planning tools:

Where to start? Working with Jenny and her husband, Jeff, was one of the best decisions I made in the wedding planning process! My now husband and I (okay, mostly me) managed so much of the planning leading up but when it came to the crazy month leading up and the actual day of, it was amazing to have help. Enter Jenny!Sent on 11/05/2017
We had an initial meeting with her and Jeff early on and walking away we just told each other, “they’re just so NICE and NORMAL.” (It’s weird how that isn’t always common in the wedding industry.) She asked us great questions and always made us feel like it was our wedding but she was there to help make it better and deliver! Of course, her guidance and expertise were crucial into having the final day be what we imagined.
In the month leading up, Jenny was always there! She attended the final walk through at our venue a month in advance, delivered an amazing day-of blueprint for us and wedding party, was always available with a quick phone call or e-mail (no matter the hour…), and even led our rehearsal at a non-traditional venue. My husband and I had our siblings officiate the wedding and, needless to say, they were new to this. Jenny even took time to connect with the both of them separately – to say she goes above and beyond is an understatement.
Fast forward to day of the wedding! Jenny and Jeff were ON IT. They delivered items to the item, picked up styrofoam coolers for the shuttle (yep, we forgot), and set up the venue to PERFECTION! One of the biggest things is that she tried our friends and family with care and respect and we received so many compliments through the course of the day. Same from our vendors! They also kept our glasses during our reception which probably contributed to the late night song & dance party that our wedding evolved into at the end of the night. No regrets.
I ran out of characters typing this so (A) Jenny is the best to have on your team & she's a true leader (B) highly recommend!

We hired Blue Moon Events to do the setup and breakdown of our wedding reception decor and I'm finding it difficult to put into words how THRILLED we were with the results! We worked with Jenny, who was absolutely fantastic. She was very responsive, easy to work with and made it so this was one aspect we did not have to stress about. It is very difficult for me to relinquish control over situations, especially one as important as my wedding, but Jenny came through and went far above and beyond our expectations. Hiring her was one of THE best decisions my fiancee and I made!! Thank you, Blue Moon Events, for helping to make our wedding so stunning!Sent on 05/19/2019

The single best decision we made for our wedding
More than the food or the venue or the band or the photographer, choosing Blue Moon Events for our day of coordinator was the single best decision we made for our wedding. Jenny and Jeff allowed us to really enjoy our day. Someone needs to do this stressful job and it's better to leave it to professionals like Jenny and Jeff so that you and your family can enjoy the day. We can not emphasize enough how lucky we were to have found Blue Moon Events.Sent on 05/15/2019
