[OWNER- LEAD PLANNER]

When you love your job, it ceases to be work. I help to bring about the happiest day in a couple’s life as a Chicago Wedding Planner and I feel so honored to be a part of this incredible milestone. My passion is weddings—each of them unique as the bride and groom who celebrate them. My priority is building a bond with every bride so that she is more friend than client. I see myself as an ally—one that can truly understand what every wedding says about each couple.

 

I have been around weddings my entire life. As a girl I shadowed my father, a talented photographer, and president of the Wedding Photography Association of Orange County. From this unique beginning, I was able to soak in so much information. I not only learned the components of documenting these celebrations, but I began to see how the entire day is carefully orchestrated, like a waltz.

 

I continued to grow professionally, working with the most elite catering company of Southern California, The Turnip Rose. Here, I learned the nuts-and-bolts of weddings—all the behind the scenes activity that must come together to create a perfect day. I became well-versed in successful preparation, set up, coordination and styles. I am always eager to gain more knowledge, to come up with new ideas, and I learn from each of my brides. For the past ten years in Chicago, I have continued my journey, learning everything I can along the way.

I simply love weddings. My talent for paying attention to detail, truly listening to what my brides want, and ability to think creatively, make me a natural wedding coordinator. My experience will make your wedding planning creative, exciting and easy. Visions Event Studio is my vision realized.

My job is a privilege; my work is my passion.

Warm Regards,

[WEDDING PLANNING INTERN]

Being a part of the wedding industry has always been a fantasy of mine. I believe my calling in life is to orchestrate unforgettable weddings and engagement proposals that make brides and grooms fall more in love with each other than they already have. Being a part of Visions Event Studio has allowed me to become an integral member of the wedding planning team, and has substantially heightened my appreciation for the wedding planning industry and all the minute, intricate details that go into successfully executing such a beautiful event.

My love for wedding planning sprouted while watching what is now my favorite movie, Father of The Bride. It may sound cheesy, but the spirit and plot of the movie made me realize the overwhelming amount of love, desire, and hard work that must be invested into planning such a wonderful event for each unique couple. My passion most lies within the heart-pounding satisfaction that comes with watching all the magic come together on the big day.

I’m eager to grow personally and professionally within this company, and I look forward to taking on new and challenging responsibilities that will help further my knowledge and passion for the industry. My biggest goal would be to help a bride and groom envision a perfect wedding to their own taste and bring it to life.
