Wonderful Experience with Root & Gather
We had an incredible experience using Root & Gather. Alaina was our wedding planner and she was a total rockstar. There were three main reasons we ended up selecting Root & Gather to help us for our big day. The first one was because they have partial planning options. This was huge for us as we were working on a budget and wanted to still have control over a lot of the planning. Second, most of my family lives out of state, so I knew that I needed a wedding coordinator that felt like a friend to me through the process. I knew instantly that Alaina would be that person for us. Planning a wedding is a really personal experience, so having someone I trusted was really important. When I felt overwhelmed, she was there to help alleviate the stress. When I thought of an idea or got super excited as time got closer, she was there to celebrate with us and cheer us on. Third, it was really important to me that I wasn’t stressed on our wedding day. The day of, Alaina & Darcy were absolutely invaluable. My mom, sister and I didn’t have to worry about anything. We had such a beautiful day and I couldn’t have asked for a smoother, more organized, stress free wedding. Seriously, best decision we made through the process. Thank you guys- you are amazing!Sent on 09/28/2019

The Perfect Planners for a Perfect Day
I would highly recommend using these ladies. We worked with Alaina and she is seriously an amazing person! She took away all the stress of planning a wedding. She was so on top of everything and an absolute delight to work with. If you are on the fence at all about getting a planner, Alaina will make you glad you had one! She made everything go so smoothly and she is such a sweetheart!Sent on 09/04/2019
It's always a pleasure when we have the chance to work with this company. We highly recommend!
The staff at Root + Gather is fantastic! There is an old saying that goes something like this. Its not what you know that will hurt you, it is what you don't know. Alaina and her staff know so much about event planning. They have been coordinating weddings for quite a while. In that time they have learned so much and are able to share that wisdom with you. The couples I work with who use Root + Gather are all calm, cool and very relaxed. What a great way to be on your wedding day!
Working with the root + gather team is always a pleasure! There are several beautiful venues in Lyons and the root + gather team really knows them inside and out. Professional, talented, and caring.. you can't go wrong!
