Best Wedding Planner in Chicago
I cannot thank Mallory and her team enough!! She was recommended by a colleague and other than our wedding date in mind I had no idea where to start.Sent on 12/19/2018
When my fiancé (now husband) and I first sat down with Mallory, we told her our ideas and what was most important to us. She immediately helped us with our vision and recommend several venues that met all of our requirements.
During the planning process Mallory was SO responsive, professional and an overall delight to work with. She made us feel like we were her only clientele during the busy wedding season. Mallory was always one step ahead of us with any questions we had or were about to have.
Mallory! Rob and I cannot thank you enough for making our day nothing less than perfect, you have our everlasting recommendation to our friends, family and colleagues.

One of the best wedding decisions we made!
The CHI Chic team is best in class! They are extremely organized, responsive, and experienced. Alexis and Mallory made both the planning process and day of completely stress free... we don’t know how we could have done it without them!Sent on 12/30/2018
Mallory and her team are an absolute pleasure to work with. I have yet to work with a wedding planner who is as dialed-in to the needs of a couple with such a calm, collected, and controlled demeanor. The wedding we led together went off without a hitch and was truly a personification of CHI Chic! Can't wait to work with her again...you should too!
As a wedding photographer, I have had the opportunity to work with Mallory and Chi Chic Events on multiple occasions. This company sets the standard for professionalism, organization, and teamwork in the Chicago wedding industry. I breathe a huge sigh of relief every time I am partnered with Chi Chic, because not only do I know the day will run smoothly, but we will have a blast working together. Her clients always treat our team with such kindness and generosity. Mallory always attracts the kind of client we love working with, and it is always a pleasure to be on her team. I can't recommend her enough to those thinking of hiring a wedding planner. You will likely make a new friend in her along the way. xo!
