An Event Less Ordinary

As theater nerds, teachers, and former secretaries, we just have the wedding coordinator brains. We're a bunch of Chicago gals who love making lists and definitely have a flair for the dramatic. As your Event Coordinators, we'll take the stress of the wedding off of your hands, help you plan a fabulous day, and manage your event to perfection.

We offer several packages: Full Planning, Day of Coordination, Event Design, and a couple of great a la carte options. We can recommend great vendors, help you stick to a budget, put together your DIY projects…generally act as 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, cueing 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!

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.

"Brittany and her assistant literally were a life saver, and we can confidently say helped make our wedding day OURS. AELO worked to make sure we could focus on our friends, family, and celebration rather than last minute snafu's, setups, forgotten items, small breakdowns of plans, and so many other things. We used them for day of coordination, but feel like we got much more than that. We also had a chance to meet with Amy & Carolyn and they are consummate professionals with great personalities. Long/Short: I would quickly and readily recommend them to anyone I know, or they know. They were Outstanding."
