There are no words to describe our love for wedding days. Our goal is for the two of you and everyone part of your day to walk away saying they had the time of their lives. You get one chance at this day. After all the planning and money spent, expectations are high on our end. We do no settle for anything less. We entered this industry for that reason. Everyone deserves to wake up the next morning saying “that was the best day EVER”. I will not lie and say it will be easy. A lot of work is put in prior, but it is definitely worth every minute. There is nothing better than a properly planned and timed wedding day that includes everything you want. We are here to make sure that happens, every step of the way. We love nothing more than seeing the smiles on your faces as the day unfolds. That is why we do this. We put EVERYTHING we have into each and every wedding day. You deserve nothing less.
Kristen – Certified Wedding Planner and Designer
Why, hello there! I am an open book and a true believer in honesty, so here goes. I love details and making people happy. This is truly the most fitting career for me. I love working with people and putting together a seamless plan, from the venue to the vendors to the end of the wedding night. You can see my passion for this when you talk to me.
I was never the girl who dreamt of her wedding day, but I did start this business after my own. Not because I enjoyed planning mine. Actually, the exact opposite. I had no idea what I was doing or how crucial some of the details and timing were. I started this because I would never want anyone to feel like I did. The process should be fun and exciting. I want everyone I work with to go in to their day knowing everything is handled, no detail was missed, and confident they will be able to enjoy every moment. I want you to wake up the next morning with no regrets and a big smile on your face because you just had the best day of your life!!
When I am not working, I am spending time with my amazing husband (I worked on him for 14 years before he reached that status haha) and my 3 children that I am beyond lucky to have. We share our home with 3 crazy dogs and a bird that always keep me busy. I’m pretty sure they are more work than the kids. Between my job and my family, I think I have a pretty wonderful life. I am dedicated to the things I love, and wedding planning is one of them.
Some wedding day favorites: The first time I see a bride in her dress the first time a couple sees each other, the walk down the aisle (tear jerker-yes, we still cry), the reaction on the couple’s face when they first view their reception room, the couples just prior to making intros into the reception.
Least favorite? Having to say goodbye at the end of the night, it’s bittersweet. We spend so much time with our couples and are always sad when the process is over. There is nothing I love more than when they keep in touch.
Beth – Wedding Coordinator
Hello, Beth here! I am so happy that you’ve decided, or are deciding, to have us be a part of one of the most important days of your lives! Thank you for investing the time to find out a little bit more about me!
Wedding and event planning has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I began working in the hospitality industry at 14, and have been blessed to now be able to coordinate weddings like yours! While they are a lot of work, I absolutely LOVE weddings, the wedding parties themselves, the planning, the excitement of the set up and the couple having the best day of their lives. Every event I am a part of is always magical and always unique to each couple. I want to make sure each and every detail you have on your “To do” is checked off without any extra thought on your end and for your day to be one of happiness, excitement, and love! It makes me happy to hear at the end of the night, it was so nice to not have to worry about anything! That’s my job to worry so you don’t have to!
A little about me personally, I’ve been married to my husband for over 20 years (April 2001!) and holy cow what a ride it’s been! We have 2 wonderfully BUSY daughters, a cat and recently added a puppy to the family! Our daughters keep us very busy with their travel softball teams along with school and other extra-curricular activities. We have lived in Romeoville for almost 19 years, but grew up in the Orland Park area. When we do have time away from the softball fields, we enjoy cooking and trying new recipes, hanging out on our deck, and watching movies and getting as much sun as we can. I also really enjoy working out and run or walk daily!
I hope to relieve some of the worries and make your day as special and carefree as possible!
Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions for us!!
