5 Star Wedding Planners
Organized, flexible, responsive, understanding, kind planners who provide the guidance, support, and knowledge you need while planning a wedding!!
So many people in my bridal party / other guests at the wedding mentioned how amazing Colleen was!! The bridal party / other VIP's LOVED the detailed timeline/itinerary that Colleen prepared and distributed prior to the wedding. People knew where to be and when, and didn't have to reach out to me with small questions as a result. People around us noticed and appreciated all that she and her team did, and we certainly did, too. AND, Colleen did it all with a calming presence and a smile on her face. We were so impressed.
Colleen and Joan humored my many overly detailed questions, requests, anxieties, etc.! I honestly felt like nothing slipped through the cracks on our wedding weekend because Colleen and her team were there to catch it all. She remembered and honored everything we mentioned to her over the past few months (which was A LOT!)!
We could go on and on... 100% recommend Five Grain Events and Colleen Fahy was an absolute GEM.
Our coordinator, Jennifer, was on top of her game and it was nice to have someone to bounce ideas off or sometimes frustrations. She was also able to tell me what is "the norm" when working with vendors, etc. Also, my family members were really impressed with the detailed timeline going into the wedding day!
I can't speak highly enough of my experience working with Five Grain Events!

Five Grain Events runs an awesome wedding. We loved working with them--professional, fun, relaxed, didn't miss a beat!
Five Grain Events is awesome!! As the Wedding & Special Events Coordinator at Windy City Limos, I have worked with them A TON. Every experience has been unique, yet successful. I would recommend them for a number of reasons: 1) Joan & her team are always on top of the planning. Transportation is one of the last things that usually gets planned/confirmed with weddings. They always reach out to me at least a month prior to service. 2) They always look over the contracts and advise if any changes are needed. This ensures that each vehicle is booked for the correct number of hours, has all the correct details, and most importantly--has a finalized itinerary. 3) Joan, Emily, Ashley, & Jennifer have all been a pleasure to work with. Whether we are planning the transportation start to finish, or they are just confirming for their clients--Everything is always done with a positive attitude. We all know working in the wedding industry can be stressful, so having an entire team with such a positive outlook definitely helps. 4) They always send out Thank Yous to the vendors. No matter how many weddings I have worked with them on, I always receive a personalized note. This goes a long way! In all, I trust Five Grain Events every time we work together.
