Christena helped keep me organized, in control, and confident that I would be able to get through this! She brought things to my attention that I had no clue I needed to do.

Stress-Free Planning

Traditions are fun and all, but sometimes they can feel suffocating. Especially when your family and friends have some ideas that don’t align with your vision for your one-of-a-kind Chicago wedding.

But you have your own ideas about what getting married looks like — whether it’s an elegant grand ballroom wedding with all the bells and whistles or a quirky, intimate loft elopement.

As your wedding planner, our job is to make your vision a reality. Not your family's vision, not Martha Stewart Weddings’ vision, not our vision — your vision. You can confide in us with your ideas and questions, and know that despite guiding you with our expert advice, you’ll always be in control. 

MEET CHRISTENA

Planning weddings that are

perfectly you.

Christena was very responsive and professional throughout the entire process. She was just as excited as I was to create our dream wedding. I was planning the wedding from a distance and she was so helpful in finding vendors to fit our vision and budget. I heard some people feel like planners take over the process and brides don't get a say, but I definitely didn't feel that way with Christena and the team.
