Christina Reis is AMAZING!!!
My husband and I worked with Christina for wedding coordination for our October 2019 wedding and from our very first meeting, she completely put us at ease! She’s incredibly kind, resourceful and creative. She can think big picture while also managing every tiny detail—I don’t know how she does it. A few months out from our wedding, she took over all communication with our vendor team, ironing out timing and final details. She was the main point of contact for all questions, which freed up our time so we could put energy into other things, instead of the small issues that inevitably come up.Sent on 02/06/2020
She kept our wedding party informed (but only on the important things) so everyone knew where and when they needed to arrive. She helped with tricky things like corralling family members for the rehearsal, and wedding day pictures, and even handed out tips at the end of the night.
The day went off without a hitch and we ended the night in our hotel room where she’d secured our gifts, wedding cake and a large Chicago deep dish pizza :) We were in heaven! We were so lucky to work with Christina and are so grateful for her direction, care and friendship. We would recommend her and the Five Grain team to anyone! Christina, thank you for handling every thing, so we could relax and enjoy our wedding day completely!

Essential part of our day!
Kelly and her team at Five Grain Events were indispensable to us leading up to and through our wedding day. After seeing that they had worked with many couples at our venue, we reached out. After the initial consultation, I already had two or three pages of advice, suggestions and tips, and felt like a load had been lifted off my shoulders. Though we only got month-of planning, the team provided great recommendation lists and other tips as we needed them. I counted down the days until Kelly stepped in two months ahead of the wedding, and as soon as we'd had our official meeting, I was stress-free (or as stress-free as a bride could be!) Kelly and her team were a joy to be around on our wedding day, helped smooth out any small fiascos (like getting a tomato stain out of the front of my dress!), helped set up and tear our personal items beautifully (see the name plate table!) and went out of their way to not only take care of us, but our family and guests in ways both big and small. If you're questioning whether a coordinator is worth it, my husband and I would emphatically say yes - and all the more so with a professional, well-connected and well-experienced team like Five Grain Events!

Worth the Money
Five Grain Events was highly recommended by three friends who were very glad they had worked with Five Grain. After our initial meeting with Joan, the owner, and our contract with Five Grain Events we had access via email for any wedding related questions. We were matched and met with Jennifer, our wedding planner, about 2 months before our date. She was our point person with the vendors, families and bridal party, and asked questions, as mother of the bride, I hadn’t even thought to ask and so much more. To her credit I don’t think any “zillas” (mom, bride, or any other combinations) appeared.Sent on 06/29/2019
Thanks to her the wedding was amazing and full of so many happy moments!
Joan helps create events that are flawless from beginning to end. Her warmth, professionalism and organizational skills make her a thrill to work with. If you have an event coming up, you will be in good hands 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.
