    Hiring a day of coordinator was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. We decided fairly last minute to do so, but are so glad we did. From the moment we started working with Calli, everything seemed to fall into place and logistics weren't nearly as overwhelming. The week before she took over lost contact with our vendors, came up with a day of timeline and helped us at our rehearsal. On the wedding day she took care of all set up and tear down- which there was a lot of since we did our own decorations. She answered all our questions and made sure we had everything we needed! I honestly don't know what we would have done without her help.

    We were given valuable planning advice as we made decisions for our big day. From knowing what to expect on guest count rsvp's to council on vendor choices, Heather provided exclusive help and an extremely experienced point of view. When we reached the wedding day, our day-of coordinators were an amazing source of stability and direction. We were so glad we chose to have day-of coordinators - little did we know what our headspace would be that day! Calli & Ellen were incredibly sweet to be around and proficient in guiding our day along smoothly and with class!

    I signed up for a partial planning package with Heather about 1 year before my wedding. I wanted to have someone on the ground in Chicago since I was planning the wedding from NYC. Heather was amazing. Though mostly emails and phone/video calls, she helped me find and coordinate all of my wedding day vendors. She scheduled our tasting, cake tasting, and floral meeting all on the same day to minimize our travel between NYC and Chicago. She really knows what she is doing and was spot on about our guest estimates when planning with the vendors. Whenever I was feeling nervous or antsy about she knew just what to say. Throughout the process, she guided me to make choices that expressed what I wanted but also would be received well by my guests. Ultimately, decisions were always my choice.

    After over a year of planning, I had my wedding in May in Chicago. Friends and family are still telling us how smoothly the whole thing ran, and how the wedding was a perfect expression of us as a couple. I honestly believe that our event would not have been as amazing without the help of Heather. I would highly recommend her as a wedding planner to any couple.
