    Look no further than ESC

    Choosing Event Shoppe Chicago (ESC) and lead planner Jennifer for our April 2022 wedding was the BEST decision we could have made. We went with their full service package, which provided planning services from the start of the planning process to day of coordination. We HIGHLY recommend booking their full service package. There are so many considerations when planning and executing a wedding. ESC guided us through every decision and it resulted in a wedding that was beyond our greatest expectations. Jennifer met with us in beginning to understand and craft our wedding vision, as well as breakdown all things to consider when deciding and allocating your wedding budget. From there, everything went seamlessly.

    Jennifer streamlined the venue selection process by curating a list of venues that matched our vision and budget, as well as coordinated and attended all venue visits. From there, she provided at least 3 recommendations for each type of vendor (i.e. Florist, Photography, DJ, etc.). We did not need to look beyond any of the initial recommendations she made, as each vendor recommended provided exceptional services. Jennifer also coordinated and setup meetings with our vendors throughout the entire planning process to ensure everything stayed on track and no detail would be missed. We knew we made the right decision selecting ESC very early in the planning process, as each vendor could not stress enough how much they loved working with Jennifer and her team.

    Besides putting together the dream vendor team, the assistance with budget allocation and guidance in determining our priorities was truly invaluable. We genuinely believe choosing the full service package saved us a lot of money, and certainly a ton of hours and stress, in the end. Now having seen the full process, we realized we would have underestimated the costs of many of the smaller things you have to consider later on (i.e. tips, transportation, uplighting, etc.). We would have spent too much early on and ended up way over budget or deciding to go without some things that were important in making our wedding so special.

    As a bride, I walked into my wedding day completely relaxed and stress free because I knew Jennifer was on top of everything and would resolve any issues that may arise. And that’s exactly what she did. My husband and I were able to fully enjoy our wedding without worrying about directing guests, cueing the DJ, and making sure things are running on time because Jennifer handled EVERYTHING. The guests at our wedding could not rave enough about how beautiful, elegant, fun, and organized our wedding was. Many of our guest say it was hands down the best wedding they have ever been to. ESC is a premiere wedding planning organization that we recommend without hesitation. Our wedding was the best day of our lives and we cannot thank Jennifer and ESC enough!

    So great to work with!

    My husband and I planned most of our wedding, but we wanted someone to come on and help guide us and eventually take over on the day of. That’s exactly what we got with Event Shoppe Chicago. Margaret was truly amazing to work with - she is organized, communicative, and super easy to get along with. We felt very confident going into our wedding day largely in part due to Margaret’s expertise. On the day of, she made sure all went off without a hitch: she made sure all the vendors had what they needed, had bobby pins to save hair, and tracked down our limo that was running late. Everything went smoothly and we had the best time. We can’t recommend Event Shoppe Chicago enough!

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.
