From full-service wedding planning, floral design, Corporate Event Planning and every birthday party and milestone party produced, our services provide our clients with a one-stop-shop. The result? A stress-free comfort in knowing your event will not only be planned and managed but done with style and ease.
At CJDE we provide our clients with a custom event planning experience. Our full-service approach allows us to create one-of-a-kind events by being that one-stop-shop to our clients. From venue scouting, referring the industries top vendors to budget management, our meticulously planned events include a Plan A, B and often C scenarios so there are no surpises come event day. Our entire team touches every event that we produce so you have a support system like no other – which is integral come event day.
Our relationships with our clients is what provides us with almost all repeat and referral business. Understanding our client’s vision, style and taste and bringing them to life in never before seen ways is what CJDE excels at. A photo in a magazine or color palette may inspire the vision but it’s our creative process and endless internal brainstorms that bring the magic. Starting with breathtaking floral designs and décor, which is all done in house, to carefully curated rentals, linens, installations and stationery. These touches leave guests talking for weeks – months — after our events. The flow and seamless orchestration of an event are integral to the days success; the design and heartbeat is what sets the celebration apart and work in tandem with our planning services.
Our love for flowers, design and custom details runs deep – therefore we do accept design, décor & floral events separate from our planning services.

The most amazing team
My fiance and I absolutely love working with Christine and the rest of the team. We knew right off the bat they were a perfect fit for us. They have been so easy and organized and every idea they have comes from the heart. We haven't had to change a single thing and trust them with every little detail.Sent on 05/18/2020
Recently, my fiance and I had to make the decision to postpone our wedding due to covid-19. I fully expected the change to be very stressful, but they have made it stress-free and very relaxed. Kendall has gotten in contact with all of our vendors quickly and easy and we have been able to lock in everything again within a few days of switching our date. Bless her. I couldn't have asked for an easier process.
I love them so much and will continue to use them for every little event I need from here on out. Not only are they great planners, but great friends too.

I would work them again and again!
Initially when we began to plan our wedding I was trying to be superwoman and plan it all myself...even with my husband's help I quickly realized I was in over my head. I met with several wedding planning companies in Chicago, but after we chatted with Christine and Colleen I knew we had met out planner. Though we first consulted with Christine, it was Colleen (and Kendall too) that became out point planners. We'd had a good bit of our wedding pieces in place when we met with e CJD but what I was most anxious about was logistics, timing and all the what-ifs you never plan for. Colleen was my rockstar. I was stressed and anxious and every step of the way she reassured me that they "had me!" AND THEY DID!! Our day was smooth sailing and effortless for me. If something went wrong I didn't know about it and that's exactly what I wanted. She stuck by me throughout the day as well as having an additional planner with the grooms party. I couldn't be more grateful that we decided to work with Colleen and the CJD team. It was, by far, the best money we spent on our wedding. They say you can't buy peace of mine, but you can if you hire this amazing team! THE BESTSent on 12/18/2019

When can I hold my next event with CDJE???
I'm not sure I can truly put into words how amazing the team at Christine Janda Design and Events truly is. To provide a little background, I met Christine Janda a little over 4 years ago when she created most beautiful bouquets and boutonnieres for my wedding day. Since then, I have followed her religiously on Instagram and I have loved the details posted from each of her events. In planning my twin sister's bachelorette party, I knew exactly who to contact. Quickly after shooting her an email, Christine gave me a call to discuss my vision for the event as we also reminisced on my wedding flowers. From this conversation, I knew Christine's team was going to work their hardest to make the weekend special for my sister and her friends. Over the next few months, I worked primarily with Colleen and Christine, an amazing duo, who provided me with options and ideas for the weekend, making everything so so so very easy on my end. They contacted restaurants, photographers, and bars so that I didn't have to worry about a single thing. Ultimately, I just had to make choices with the information they provided me. In the end, we settled on holding a bach brunch at Eden in Chicago, where Christine and Colleen created floral crowns for each of the gals. They also connected me to Brittany Bekas, a local Chicago photographer, to capture the fun. We ended up staying at a local Sonder and Christine, Colleen, and Kendall (Another amazing CJDE employee) helped me to make the spot truly cozy and perfect. They decked the place out with a bohemian vibe, so many eucalyptus leaves, and the BEST floral arrangements. They also created beautiful gift baskets for each of the guests. I honestly could not be happier with how everything turned out in the end and it was such a pleasure working with the CJDE team in the months leading up to the big weekend. If you need a planner, this team is perfect. I would never hesitate to contact them in the future for events! Love each and every one of them.Sent on 01/04/2020
Christine Janda is always welcome at Room 1520! Flawless events every time!
Christine Janda consistently amazes me with her creative eye and designing talents. We've worked together multiple times, and she has a great combination of high professional standards, along with a friendly and fun personality. She has a sharp eye for high quality details, which is evident in the selections she uses for her lush floral arrangements down to the smallest decor elements incorporated in her event designs. The cohesiveness of the various elements she combines, and often surprising ideas she comes up with, are always impressive and inspiring. She also has a great professional attitude, and is calm and friendly to everyone she encounters, from fellow event pros, to clients and guests.
