Our Story — When Couple + Planner Meet

I actually met Erin through the wedding industry a little over a year ago when we were working together on a mutual client’s wedding. We quickly hit it off, bonding over our general love of all things weddings, our matching blond hair and, of course, the fact that we’d both recently gotten engaged.

A few months out from her and Richard’s big day, I asked who they had brought on as their wedding coordinator. When she said no one, my jaw hit the ground. Here was a woman who bent over backward for all of her clients on their wedding days. On her wedding day, she wasn’t going to have someone do the same for her? Not on my watch. Eventually, I wore her down and she agreed to let me provide her with the service that she and Richard so deserved.

Richard and Erin got married at the Intercontinental on Michigan Ave. on a rainy spring day—an April day that held true to the old rhyme. But a little rain wasn’t going to get this couple down. The Intercon is an extremely beautiful and historic building with different design aesthetics throughout. The resulting photos, as you can see, were gorgeous.

From The Couple 

“We were so fortunate to have Jennifer as our wedding planner! After months of my “I can do this myself” mentality, I finally realized we needed the help of a professional. We could not be any happier with our decision! She took the time to understand and care about what was important to us and ensured they happened as we wanted. After her years of experience, she has amazing connections and insight. She is prompt, friendly and professional; but yet in moments of stress, she remained calm and logical when seeking solutions. I would highly recommend Jen to everyone I know!”
