    Best of the Best

    We cannot begin to explain what this team did for our wedding. They truly made it the best experience ever. We had a large wedding with a lot of moving parts. Kristin, John and the team made it the most special day ever. We consider them now part of our family and know we could not have had the most perfect day without them. They will respond to every question, concern or idea with thoughtfulness and expertise. When you have to trust someone on your wedding day - these are the people.

    A Wedding Must Have!

    Going into wedding planning I thought I was extremely organized and prepared for whatever the day may throw me. Boy was i wrong. Kristin & her team were a necessity to our big day! She ensured the day was seamless and perfect in every way possible. Through out every conversation we had with our caterer we stressed that we needed the venue to be nut free due to the amount of nut allergies we had present at our reception. Low and behold there were walnuts in each of the salads. Kristin & Gibson swooped in to have this immediately fixed so that my self and my now husband didn't even notice. They addressed it with the caterer to ensure none of the remaining courses would contain nuts. As the dancing begun my husband ripped his tuxedo pants completely. Gibson immediately drove to the hotel to pick up a spare pair and repaired the ones he was wearing with approximately 50 safety pins. This job is not for the weak, and I can assure you Kristin & Gibson are truly the best. The cherry to the sundae was when my husband wanted a specific night photo which required spot lights, which our photographer did not have. Gibson stepped in and held 3 phone flashlights to make his dream photo a reality. Words truly cannot express how grateful we are for this team. I recommend Events by Kristin to each and every Chicago-land bride.

    A Groom's Review

    To the fiancés with future husbands who are not convinced a wedding coordinator is required,

    Just show them this review on how Kristin, Gibson, John and Kristin killed it and saved our day -

    Our cater served caramelized nuts at wedding knowing we had significant nut allergies…Gibson was the first to identify the nuts and immediately having the salads removed and replaced.
    Of course, I ripped my tuxedo pants within 5 minutes of dancing…. Gibson, my future mother in law and 50 safety pins saved the day. She also went back to the hotel to get my backup pair.
    When myself, groomzilla, wanted a night-time photo underneath an old tree near the venue… Gibson was there holding flashlights from 3 cellphones for perfect lighting.
    We never went hungry or thirsty… John and Gibson got the bridal party appetizers before the ceremony and made sure we had drinks all night long!

    Overall, all the big and little things were taken care of to make one of the chilliest, smoothest, and most memorable days of our lives!

    Cheers,
    Anthony Isherwood

    PS: You are going to need Kristin, Gibson, and team at your wedding.
