Dana from Clementine was the best!
Deciding to use Dana from Clementine was absolutely the best decision we made about our entire wedding. She made our day completely flawless and stress free. We had a lot of vendors, wedding guests, bridal party members, and family and Dana made sure every single detail was perfect. She was responsive, prompt, and truly felt like part of our family on the wedding day! Even when our wedding party trolley got a flat tire, Dana took care of it right away and there was a new one waiting for us right away outside the church. Her enthusiasm, professionalism, and knowledge of all things weddings was exactly what we needed to make our day perfect! We cannot be more thankful that she was part of our day.Sent on 07/20/2021

The Perfect Day Thanks to Jaci & Clementine!
Jaci and the team from Clementine were amazing from day one. She stuck with us through it all - stress related to Covid restrictions and worries about having to change our wedding plans. She always remained positive and realistic and worked with us to think of alternative wedding plans if needed. She is personable and wanted to learn about us as a couple. Jaci is very experienced in the Chicago wedding industry and had worked with all of our vendors (some several times!) previously. It was so helpful to have her as a connection and resource when planning our wedding. The day of our wedding was absolutely stress free. Jaci handled all of the vendors and their arrivals and worked with the floral team to set up. She also set up our personal items perfectly (guest book, card box, signs, etc.) for the ceremony and reception. We highly recommend the Clementine team and Jaci!Sent on 06/17/2021

Dana is Amazing!! Hiring her was the best decision for our wedding!
It was a no brainer to book Dana after our first phone conversation with her! From the very beginning of our planning once we moved forward with her, she was so organized and on top of everything. Because of COVID, we were forced to plan two weddings in two different locations as a back up. Knowing we would have Dana in our court gave us such reassurance that no matter where our wedding would take place everything would be perfect! We were able to move forward with our original plans and Dana was able to coordinate everything perfectly. Her timeline was so detailed and make it clear for all parties involved (the bride and groom, our wedding party, our families, and our vendors). She was so quick to respond to any question or detail we needed figured out and helped us to stay on task with the timely items that needed to be completed. If we ever had a hard time communicating with a vendor, she would hop right in to help facilitate the conversation with ease! When it came to our actual wedding day, she was so calm and just put everyone at ease! If anything at all went wrong, we had no idea, because she made us feel like everything was perfectly on time and great the entire day. She thought of every little thing from having back up safety pins to making sure I had access to comfortable shoes to dance in at the end of the night. She even made sure our suite was all nice and tidy to come back to after all the bridal party spent the morning getting ready in it. We seriously cannot thank Dana enough for all the hard work she put into our special day to make everything so perfect and seamless and everything we could have dreamed of! We would 100% recommend Dana and Clementine to any of our friends and family getting married in the futureSent on 07/29/2021
I am a bandleader and work with wedding planners all the time. I'm all smiles when I get to work with Kelly, Melissa, Loren or anyone on the Clementine team. They are a pleasure to work with and totally pro. Every event I've ever done with them goes smoothly. The couple and the guests are incredibly happy. I can't recommend the Clementine team enough!
Working with Kelly is an absolute joy! She is very knowledgeable, positive and responsive to her brides and grooms. We are looking forward to having expertise of the wedding planning process make her clients weddings even more seamless at the club.
These wonderful Clementine ladies are fabulous, energetic, stylish, and take care of business. What more can your ask for? We adore them and love working with them to collaborate on events that are big heart and big wow.
