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.

"I want to say THANK YOU so, so much for helping make our wedding day to incredibly amazing and perfect. I had the absolute best time of my life, and I am SO sad that it’s over!!!! EVERYONE who worked with you or talked with you during the wedding weekend absolutely loved you… You have truly found your calling, and for that all brides should be grateful. I still cannot believe how amazingly well everything went; several people told us that was the best wedding they’ve ever been to – and I can say with complete certainty that we could not have done this without you. Thank you so, so much for your integral role in making this the absolute best weekend of our lives!!" – Lauren & Mike, June 2016
