We used both Crystal and Alaina on our wedding day, but Crystal was our main planner from start to finish and made our wedding a complete dream. And when I say dream, I mean ACTUALLY, truly, 100% made our dream day come true more than we even thought possible! She knew all the right vendors, had the best attitude, was always available when I needed her, helped us stay within budget (we were only a little bit over and it was my fault because I fell in love with a more expensive dress... oopsie!), helped us through any stress that came up, and more. After reflecting on how perfect our wedding was, we truly felt like we had a new best friend in her and that a best friend planned our wedding -- not just a random stranger. We absolutely love Crystal and can't wait until we see her again!! HIGHLY recommend using root + gather for your wedding planning -- it was the best investment we made.

The Very Best Investment Because of the Very Best People
My husband and I just got married last Friday, and we cannot stop thinking about how perfect everything went. Every single one of our guests has told us it was the best wedding they had ever been to, and we owe a huge thanks to Alaina and her team for helping make that happen.
There is not one thing I would change about our day. From the first time I spoke on the phone with Alaina, besides the many things we had in common, I knew I could trust her. Alaina is so professional, but also so fun! She was easy to talk to, available any time I had a random question, put me at ease with any worry that came up last-minute, and was just a real gem to meet as an individual. She made both my husband and me feel special, loved and at peace because of her authenticity and talent for wedding day planning.
We are beyond grateful to the team at root + gather and would recommend their services to any and everyone.
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!
