Composure Events is an award winning planning firm specializing in modern, contemporary, and elegant weddings.
Behind the scenes is an expert team that crafts and coordinates each event and experience with obsessive attention to detail to pull off smooth and impactful memories that last a lifetime.
We work hand in hand with venues and vendors who share our professionalism, integrity and values. We prioritize caring for our clients and ensuring the event is always crafted for you — and not the other way around.
Breaking down our packages:
TheModern: with TheModern, We plan the wedding with you as your dedicated partner for the duration of your entire engagement, leading you through the planning process and keeping you on track with extensive reports. We alleviate your wedding planning stresses by helping you focus on priorities and time sensitive decisions first, following by all the little details that we make sure you won’t miss.
We share the load every step of the way — recommending/booking vendors and getting quotes/proposals, managing each detail with those vendors along side you, and being present with an expert team on the day of to execute the day flawlessly.
FullyComposed: In addition to all TheModern offers, with FullyComposed we first master the vision for your day, and then we create a comprehensive strategy on making it happen for you. We meet up as much as desired & design a personalized event with you, regularly presenting you with simple, "yes" or "no" options and decisions to make throughout the process. Your at home planning work is limited to two, stress-free 30 minute tasks a month (on average), and responding to correspondence to finalize your choices. Think of us as your personal “wedding assistants”, or your fill in “maid of honor/mother of the bride” concierge with this luxury wedding planning service.
TheGrandFinale is our “Day of” package, but starts a full two months before your day. Two months prior to your date, we meet & gather all your beautifully planned wedding details. We note/find any last remaining details that need to be planned, and create a comprehensive project report and task list, all the while reaching out to vendors to cross check every detail. We work in close relationship with each vendor to finalize your timeline, ensuring they deliver the services promised on the day with excellence, and fill in the gaps to make your day smooth and stress free. This includes 2 planning meetings, weekly correspondence, and 1 layout meeting. (*Hotel block services are included and can start 1 year out)

The best planner!
There would never be enough words to describe all that Cori and her team did for us for our wedding. I initially contacted her 3 months prior to our wedding as I thought I could do it all on my own - big mistake! She jumped right in and handled absolutely everything in such a timely and calm manner. Wedding day was upon us and she made sure everything was done, we had time to chill/rest/relax knowing that she would handle all the details. I hope if you are reading this and looking for a wedding planner you book with Cori. It was the best money I ever spent on my wedding. Love Cori and her team!Sent on 11/05/2020

Highly recommend Composure Events 'GrandFinale' package for month-of coordination!
I decided on using the 'GrandFinale' package with Composure Events and I cannot recommend it enough for day-of (and month of) coordination! Cori was the perfect balance of being organized and on the ball while also helping ensure my husband and I had fun and stayed relaxed the final stages of wedding planning. By our wedding day it felt like Cori was a close friend that was helping make sure our final wedding day logistics and coordination ran smoothly. My husband and I appreciated that Cori had our best interest in mind and was focused on working with our other vendors to execute our wedding day exactly as we has envisioned!Sent on 08/20/2020

Cori helped our day run so smoothly, she met with us several times prior. Went with the flow with our constant changes due to covid. She ensured all vendors were in the right place at the right time and that expectations were met. She had all the essentials in her emergency kit that we could possibly need. She had our reception all set up when we arrived and helped our timeline go very smoothly - making sure dances, speeches, dinner and everything was right on time. Thank you Cori for all your hard work!Sent on 11/16/2020
Team of Composure Events
In addition to Wedding Planner and Entrepreneur, Cori lovingly holds the roles of wife to a British comedian & mother to the cutest BOSS baby.
Before Composure, she spent her life as a part of the ‘behind the scenes’ for hundreds of global events. Some of her favorite countries she has spent extensive time in have been Italy, Thailand, and India, and she incorporates design and lessons from all over the world into her Composures systems and protocol. This sets Composure’s planning experience apart from the Midwest norm. Each member of the Composure team is trained in the same tested and proven planning & design strategies.
Even with hundreds of events behind her, she still approaches each client with a fresh passion and enthusiasm. Being apart of your story in this small way makes her own so much better.
Day of Coordinator
Rebecca has been in the corporate events sphere for years. She joined Composure after getting married herself and realizing she wanted to mix her event planning skills with the joy of planning a wedding (and party) for others!
Rebecca was trained under Cori's systems and expertise in order to take on "theGrandFinale" clients for day of planning. She also joins as assistant coordinator on other wedding days.
Claire is one of our cherished assistant coordinators and closing event managers. She makes sure the end of the night is smooth and planned to perfection -- leading our team and vendors through the tear down and packing up process with ease.
