Company Name: Cheers! Chicago

Service Area: Chicagoland Wedding and Event Planner

Years in Business: I’ve been in the events industry for four awesome years, but have owned Cheers! for four months.

How Did You Begin Your Career? I was lucky to score an apprenticeship with You Name It Events in Geneva after graduating college. I worked my way up from intern to assistant to fellow planner, and fell in love with the industry!

What is Your Planning/Design Style? I’m all about fun, unique yet chic events that reflect the couple and pack personality. For me, this means big, bold color palettes and unique patterns and textures, especially with the florals!

Describe Your Ideal Client: My signature clients are party people; they are so excited to finally be married, celebrate with loved ones, eat great food and delicious drinks, and dance the night away!

What Makes You Different At What You Do? Trends come and go, but I want to create events that are original and timeless. I love taking one simple, personal detail of my couples and creating an awesome theme around it! With every event, large and small, I want to exceed my client’s’ expectations and blow their minds!

What Do You Love Most About Weddings? I love getting to know my clients beyond their wedding day; their likes, their dislikes, where they love to vacation, their favorite restaurants, and sports teams. I love when I get the opportunity to form a lasting friendship with my brides and grooms, and our relationship continues as they grow in their marriage. It makes my day when I see pictures from their honeymoon or their first home, or get a birth announcement in the mail of their first beautiful baby.
