    Calm and Organized Wedding Day Coordinator

    We hired Jenny to help with day-of-coordination. Her prices were reasonable, and she was responsive and punctual. She sent us a detailed worksheet to complete a couple of weeks in advance to make sure she had every aspect of the day in view. She was very calm, thoughtful, and organized the entire day. I'd recommend her to my friends getting married in Chicagoland.

    Outstanding

    We really enjoyed working with the staff at Alice Millar. They helped make stressful parts of wedding planning go by painlessly. It was such an extremely beautiful venue for the ceremony. There were no unexpected issues that occurred on the wedding day. We were thrilled that everything worked out just as we hoped it would.
