    I booked Christine and her team through an Elope to Chicago package for our early August 2018 wedding. We had a small wedding, so we used their services for 2 corsages, 5 boutonnieres, and 1 bridal bouquet. Each arrangement was just beautiful and they were even delivered to our hotel before the promised time! We worked specifically with Colleen, who was helpful in suggesting arrangements that would work with our color scheme. She was even patient when I totally changed my mind a couple different times. I also feel that pricing is very competitive with other florists in Chicago, especially considering the excellent level of service!! - Blaire & Matt

    Christine and Colleen were by far the best decision we made while planning our wedding! Where do I begin? Well, from the beginning...
    From my very first conversation with Christine, she made me feel understood, at ease, excited and like we 110% absolutely needed her to be a part of our big day.
    Being the Type A person that I am, my mom and I had planned out almost all of the details and the timeline. But even then, I knew there were things we weren't thinking about and things that would come up that day that we were not prepared for. I wanted to make sure that my husband, my mom and I could all enjoy as much of the day as possible.
    Christine introduced Colleen to us, and we hit the ground running about a month before the big day. Colleen jumped right in and sent a list of questions, documents she needed, etc.--all so organized and prompt, which I loved! They were so responsive and attentive, which made me think how do they do this with all of their brides? Such patience :)
    Christine and Colleen perfectly planned out our entire day, and took extra precaution so that I didn't see my husband before the ceremony. (Not doing a first-look has to be one of the most frustrating things to wedding planners, if I had to guess.) Christine and Colleen were in all the right places at all the right times. We also had some tough family sensitivities coming into the wedding, and they handled absolutely everything. I will never forget the returning sense of calmness Christine gave to me with a wink and a smile right before my walk down the aisle.
    Christine and Colleen truly made it so that we had not a single care or worry in the world besides enjoying every moment of our wedding day. I wish we started working with them from the very beginning! I cannot say enough wonderful things about Christine, Colleen and their team. I absolutely love all of CJDE's floral designs as well, making CJDE the perfect partner for any Bride to be! :)

    We booked CJDE for our day-of wedding coordination and floral design for our July wedding. We had the pleasure of working directly with Christine along with Colleen, one of her event directors.

    All of our floral was very well done, of the highest quality, and absolutely gorgeous. Christine took extra time to meet and talk with us about our vision and make sure we were getting exactly what we wanted, right down to the smallest details. She gives direction to refine the ideas you bring to her, as well as makes her own suggestions on things you haven't yet thought of in order to create the most beautiful design. She was understanding of our budget and did a wonderful job of making changes as needed to keep us at our target price point.

    With regard to their the day of coordination, you get so much more than that! CJDE will meet and communicate via text and email 3 months leading up to the big day. I had booked nearly all of our vendors and completed many things by time CJDE took over, and they picked up where I left off in the process absolutely seamlessly. Colleen was unbelievably organized, fast, and easy to reach. Colleen was with me during every step of the morning of the wedding and having her there was invaluable! She and Christine took care of EVERYTHING. On the day of, I wasn't feeling a small piece of my bridal bouquet, so Colleen didn't hesitate to give it a "bang trim", as she called it, and it was perfect! The CJDE staff set up our reception decor flawlessly, combining items from their studio with personal items we wanted to include. They will also deliver gifts and cards back to your hotel room while you continue to enjoy your evening. All we had to do was have fun and enjoy the day, knowing that everything would be taken care of.

    I don't have enough kind words to say about CJDE. We would (and have) recommended them to anyone getting married, no matter what stage in planning you are!
