Best Wedding Planner EVER

I thought we could plan a wedding ourselves. Our venue provided us with a list of preferred vendors; it seemed straightforward, but we decided to find a planner to help us. After interviewing several planners, Lisa clearly understood the Chicago wedding industry and its unique vendors. When asked how she would approach having a drag queen at our wedding, Lisa lit up with ideas and strategies.

We were so lucky that we decided to work with Lisa. Planning a wedding is complex; no one but your planner has your interests at heart. Lisa was a shrewd negotiator who was able to remove extraneous charges from our quotes with vendors that we did not need. She kept my fiancé and me on plan for the tasks only we could do. My wedding party referred to her as a general on our wedding day. We had protesters blocking Michigan Ave, lost parents, and ripped suits. We did not even learn of these issues until after the wedding. Lisa handled each issue without flinching.

Our day was perfect, so much of it is because of Lisa.

Also, nearly everyone who attended said it was the best wedding they had ever been to, and many were including their weddings in the list!

Experts in the industry!

My husband and I got married at Holy Name Cathedral and The Drake in Chicago in October 2023, and Lisa was our full-time wedding coordinator. I could not have planned this wedding without her. Lisa has planned countless weddings in the past, and I fully trusted her planning timeline. We regularly met via zoom, and she sent weekly emails with a bride/groom "to-do" and "Lisa's to-do" lists. Lisa attended all of our meetings with our vendors. She has strong relationships with local vendors, and her vendor recommendations perfectly aligned with our wedding vision. She helped us bring our fairytale wedding vision to life!

Thank you Lisa!!

We are so thankful Lisa was our planner for our wedding in September! She was pretty much the first vendor we chose, and was crucial in the success of our wedding. She was a big help in narrowing down the potential pool of vendors, and she did a great job of assessing our needs and interests before providing vendor recommendations (who all did great jobs!), and she helped keep track of and coordinate the vendors as well. She created a timeline so we could see what tasks were upcoming, and her weekly task lists helped us focus our energy so that we didn’t get overwhelmed.

Our wedding day came together in the best way, and we didn’t worry about a thing, as we knew Lisa would handle anything that came up (and she did). With Lisa’s help, what could have been a stressful process, really wasn’t. We cannot thank Lisa and her team enough for all they did to help us pull off the wedding of our dreams!
