Just hire Jennifer!
My husband and I booked Jennifer to coordinate our August 15th wedding in February of this year. We wanted to find someone who could help wrangle our large families but also someone we wanted to spend all day with at our wedding. Jennifer definitely fit the bill, immediately she was engaging, friendly and well organized.Sent on 12/05/2020
When lockdowns started and it was clear we may not be having the wedding we planned, Jennifer immediately reached out to us. She talked us through our options and helped us decide to move our big 200 person party to a new date in 2021. Jennifer then coordinated with all of our vendors to move to the new party date.
We decided to have a micro wedding this year on our original date. Jennifer helped us figure out what we needed and set-up our day of timeline. On our wedding day she was there for us and our families the entire day. She made sure everyone (family and vendors) got where they needed to go. She foresaw and solved any issues that came up, whether it was locating a missing bouquet or discretely passing tissues up to my husband during the ceremony.
Jennifer is everything we could have asked for and more in a coordinator. We can’t wait to work with her again for our big party next year.
Event Shoppe Chicago's reply:Sarah I'm so happy that we got you two down the aisle to say "I do"! While it wasn't our original plan, it was still a truly amazing day. I look forward to celebrating with you two in the future and can't wait to see your family again!

Jennifer goes above and beyond!
Any covid bride knows how stressful this year has been and Jennifer has gone above and beyond to assist us every step of the way. She’s guided us in the right direction all along and I appreciate all the tireless effort she’s put in to help us through this stressful process. Thank you so much Jennifer!!!!Sent on 11/19/2020

Jennifer is the best!
I appreciate that although the world was falling all around us, Jennifer was right there to make sure that our special day felt just as unique and magical as we had hoped for.Sent on 11/04/2020
I knew once we got engaged that I would want to work with a wedding planner that truly put our thoughts, ideas as well as concerns first throughout the whole process. Jennifer was exactly that. Given the current climate we weren’t going to try and plan a large wedding but still wanted our 2020 elopement to feel intimate, classic and uniquely ours. We also wanted to consciously try and support as many local, small, women/minority owned businesses as possible in the process on top of keeping our budget on a tight leash. Jennifer was able to mesh our dreams to venues/vendors that allowed us our vision while keeping us well on track financially. She even was so gracious to find us an all-inclusive venue during covid that would make everything come together. I cannot sing her praises enough that she was willing to sacrifice some of the creative reigns to allow us to use the venue/vendors/services because she knew how it would fit our vision.
Jennifer was always very attentive and great at responding to our million and one questions. She helped us every step of the way and when the big day came, it was the smoothest day possible! I have not one complaint and would gladly refer her to others. I’m happy that she will also be working with us on our 2021 reception.
Event Shoppe Chicago's reply:Joselyn, I was so honored to be a intricate part of your wedding day. Watching you two jump the broom made my heart swell and I can't thank you enough for choosing our team to help guide you down the aisle and to the party. I'm thrilled to be working with you again!

Event Shoppe Chicago was born from my desire to mix my extenious amount of event planner experience with my love of design and details. My goal as a wedding planner is to help every couple tell their Wedding Story. This is the perfect cocktail of their love story and wedding experience.
My favorite part of the planning process is the final details meeting. I know i'm doing my job correctly when we bring solutions to the couples for challenges they didn't even know they had. My favorite part of the wedding day is when we wisk the couple away for a private moment directly after the ceremony. I love seeing their face after the ceremony when they realize they are just getting started on amazing day
I am Ashlee Pullen a lead planner with Event Shoppe Chicago. I am a MD native and moved to the Chicagoland area in 2018. I love all things fun! I live for a unique experience and a good photo. I have been working with the firm since 2019. I’ve always loved to plan and was the go to for my friends when planning any celebratory event.
Weddings have always been my jam! My embarrassing fact is that I’ve been planning mock weddings since I was 17. While everyone else was planning their 18 birthdays I was deciding contingency plans for my mock bride because she had to have an outdoor wedding in April.
