WHO WE ARE. We are experts in beautifully crafted, created just-for-you celebrations. We are a planning and floral design business that accepts a limited number of events each year. We believe in quality over quantity. We believe mastering logistics while balancing design in layers and layers of detail make us great planners and producers. We believe in leading with confidence, grace and style

WHAT WE DO. We create forever memorable events. We believe in strict organization leaving no room for stress during planning and especially come event day. We build relationships with our clients that can only be created with time, attention and care. We retain repeat business; from wedding to baby shower to corporate holiday party. Time and time again.

WHEN WE BEGIN. At all stages of the event planning process. Often at the very beginning when searching for the perfect venue or date.

WHERE WE WORK. My kind of town, Chicago is...we are based in Chicago at our design studio in Goose Island and love working in our magnificent city and surrounding suburbs. We also travel within the Midwest with a select number of destination work each year.

WHY WE DO IT. Because we believe “Type A” logistics combined with the beauty of flowers and the personal joy of celebrations is the best job in the world. And we thank every client for allowing us to be a part of their special day.

Incredible Experience

We had Kristen (at Christine Janda Design & Events) as our wedding coordinator for our September 2023 Chicago wedding. She was incredible. I can't recommend her enough. She took all the stress away from us. We switched wedding bands one week before the wedding, and she graciously made that happen for us. She worked with many different vendors for us, kept us organized, helped with photos (holding down my veil and giving the photographer recommendations), and made our dream wedding possible. I honestlyWe couldn't imagine planning a wedding without her. She has such a calming yet assertive presence that makes her the perfect wedding coordinator. I've already recommended her to all my friends. She's incredible.

Incredibly talented team

CJDE planned our recent wedding in Chicago, and we can't overstate how happy we are that we did! Christine and her team are absolute experts at what they do. They are incredibly professional, friendly, and easy to work with. Communication is easy and they have no problem adapting to your busy schedule. And of course, the flowers and overall design at our wedding were immaculate! They also made the wedding day itself so easy for us and executed perfectly. We couldn't recommend CJDE enough!

Highly recommend

We worked with Katy, Christine, and other members of her team for wedding planning, design, and florals. They were absolutely AMAZING to work with! We would 10/10 recommend working with them. They made the planning process stress free and most importantly FUN! They made it feel like we were working with a group of friends to plan our wedding. They made our wedding dreams come true and we truly got to enjoy the day of and celebrate the way we had hoped because of them. They were extremely responsive and always made time for us when we had questions, concerns, etc. We were also planning a destination wedding, so they were incredible to work with virtually and always willing to accommodate our schedules when we were in town. We couldn’t have imagined working with anyone else for our planning, design, and floral needs. I can’t say enough nice things about them and the experience we had! Thank you guys again for making our day so special and one that we will remember forever!!

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.
