    There wasn't a vendor or service where we had to do research on our own or vet multiple choices from Kristina. Each vendor was a winner! Kristina works with the best and truly listens to put together all you need to have a success & wonderful day. Working with Kristina was a breeze and our wedding wouldn't have been the same without her! She is a delight and a true professional. I highly recommend working with Kristina for your wedding or event!

    If you are looking for a consummate professional who also happens to be a wonderful person who is delightful to work with, then you've found your event planner! I have nothing but fabulous things to say about Kristina Taheri, who was the planner for our September 2016 wedding in the Chicago suburbs. The reception was held at my parents' house, so planning the event and making sure everything came together seamlessly was no small task. We absolutely could not have pulled off our dream wedding—it was truly perfect!—without Kristina. She recommended great vendors and then helped us coordinate with our various vendors once we chose them; she went to bat for us when we needed her to; and she ensured all the details came together beautifully, especially in the few weeks and final days leading up to the wedding. Through it all, she was a joy to work with: she eliminated the stress of wedding planning, brought great ideas to the table, and was so much fun. You will not find a better planner for your next big event!
