As theater nerds who were secretaries for years, we have the wedding coordinator brains. We're just two gals in Chicago who love making lists and definitely have a flair for the dramatic. As your wedding coordinators, we'll take the stress of the wedding off of your hands, help you plan a gorgeous day, and run your event to perfection.

We offer several packages: Full Planning, Day of Coordination, Day of + a little extra, and just for you OBBs, we offer some a la carte services if you need 'em. We'll give you vendor recommendations, budget meetings, put together your DIY projects and in general be your wedding ninjas.

On your wedding day, we'll tailor our time to what you need us to do, whatever it may be; from setting up your decor to tearing it down, running the first dances and keeping unruly ring bearers happy before they walk down the aisle. We'll handle all of your vendors, put out fires, show Aunt Bessy where the bathroom is, and tell Uncle Stan to stop hitting on all the bridesmaids. Whatever it is, whatever you need, we're on it.

Shoot us an email. We'll have coffee, we'll talk weddings and we'll make your dream day happen.

How I cater to Offbeat Brides

Ninja cake toppers? Definitely. Quirky venues? Absolutely. Dr. Seuss ceremony readings? Walking your dog down the aisle? Ridiculous photo booth pictures? For shiz. We want you to have a wedding experience that is uniquely yours, not some cookie cutter wedding like the ones you’ve been to before. We’ll make sure your day is relaxed, epic, and full of laughs and love.

"And that magic wedding bag? Holy batman. It was like Mary Poppins bag, but covered in pink polka dots and had things in there I've never even heard of. I've never smiled so much while signing and handing over a check, as I did with AELO, because it was so totally worth it. And they rock."
