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.Sent on 08/03/2017

I couldn’t have done it without her!
Crystal went above and beyond to make sure my wedding day went off without a hitch! She was very patient and easy to work with. She even helped calm me down during wedding planning and on the day of. The florist got all my colors wrong, it started to rain, my seating chart broke and the lead singer of our band emailed me that her voice was partially gone. Crystal gave me her rain coat, walked me over to my girls and reminded me to not let it ruin my time with them before the wedding. I honestly could not have pulled off that wedding without her. She’s a bridal fairy godmother.Sent on 08/15/2019

Amazing Wedding Planner - Trusting and Helpful
We had an amazing time working closely with Alaina during our wedding planning process. We connected with Alaina right from the beginning, and knew that we could trust her in planning our wedding day! She was always prompt in answering our questions (either over-the-phone or via email), provided recommendations on vendors when we asked, helpful in guiding us to make sure we were on track with her amazing check list and detailed overview, and most importantly, was extremely helpful in ensuring that our wedding day went smoothly! We were planning our wedding from out-of-state, and she worked with us by speaking over video chat and our availability. We would highly recommend the root + gather team!! We loved working with Alaina!Sent on 06/30/2019
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!
