We hired Standing Ovation for our wedding reception, and it was the best choice we could'v made. My husband and I put off hiring a DJ because we were afraid of the cost, and entertained the idea of creating our own mix, but we sigh with relief every-time we reflect on the perfect organization, professionalism, and fun that was provided from Standing Ovation. Our DJ was the best. He helped us enjoy our wedding day more than we could'v imagined, especially if we had to worry about the music. The timing and music was perfect for some great memories . I really admire this company for coming through even though we were so indecisive. Going with this DJ company made our day!

C&C provided wonderful service for my wedding reception! We had about 160-175 guests and everyone was taken care of! As a very type-A person who has experience in the serving industry, it was difficult for me to take my hands off the steering wheel, but I am so happy I did! Lynette was great with organizing and coordinating her team - Robert led the team for the day of. They came in and got to work. If they had questions, they would ask, but otherwise, they handled everything! They were polite, professional, responsive, respectful, helpful - absolutely wonderful! I highly recommend C&C!

Because my wedding was outside, in the rainy June season in good ol Chicago, I went back and forth with tent sizes, tent quantity, and side walls. As much of a pain as I was, Stacie made sure every request was fulfilled and every question I had was answered. She made me feel confident that my wedding would turn out perfect, rain or shine, and that she would do everything to make sure I had the proper tenting. It didn't rain, however, I am still so thankful for how easy and wonderful they were to work with! Thank you for being a part of making my wedding better than I dreamed;)

I am not a flower person-- I don't care for roses, daises, peonies, etc. When I told Angie with Blossom & Branch Designs this, I was expecting to still be pushed in that direction because, you know, it's a wedding afterall, and that's the protocol/expectation, right? To my delight, she started showing us pictures of plants and flowers I'd never seen before and never thought could be used in a wedding/reception (don't worry, she still does the traditional and really cool stuff too). We clicked and she was absolutely a joy to work with. The day of, Angie was was cheerful, calm and collected (it was raining...for an outdoor wedding) which was a blessing as everyone else was...not. I probably gave her leeway than most brides with the centerpieces, but after several conversations I trusted her to handle almost anything. The most compliments we received after the wedding were on the flowers and the centerpieces that she did-- not the music, food, dress, alcohol, games... everyone was raving about the centerpieces and flowers. Seriously, if you're getting hitched, there is no one that is better or better to work with! She is also super nice, easy to get along with, and pretty hilarious to top it off!

Aly was the first person to reply. After talking to her for only a few minutes I knew that she would be the person that would plan my wedding. Aly has her own business and a vested interest in the success of my wedding. I didn't want a large corporation I wanted the personal touch that I knew Aly would bring. Aly was on board from the start she listened and took particular note of the things that were important to me as well as offering suggestions that were so helpful. I had a plan and Aly worked with me to make my day perfect. Aly was available 24 /7 via email text as well as by phone. Aly was in constant touch with me to ensure all of what I wanted was perfect down to the last detail. Nothing was too much trouble. I had to do nothing except let her know my wishes, she did it all. I had a small intimate wedding but I have no doubt that Aly could plan a wedding for 35 or 350. Her attention to detail was incredible. Aly made sure that everything was in place from the caterers to the tent suppliers. The food was fantastic cooked on site. The food Vendor was so accommodating and beautifully displayed. Everything was as I asked. The network of Vendors Aly has is phenomenal I had a range to choose from. I was not alone at any time. If I needed any help or information about anything from flowers, accessories, dresses, centerpieces, you name it Aly knew all about it. Aly made arrangements to have my centerpieces made to my specifications. They were beautiful. Aly went above and beyond in every way. My dream wedding came true only because of her. Aly knows her profession and does it exceptionally. I believe it's because she loves what she does as well as she wants the bride to have the experience of a lifetime on her special day. She succeeded. I will scream praises for Aly to anyone who will listen she is just the best. Thank you Aly. I am forever grateful. Love you Aly. ๐Ÿ’“๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’˜๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’—

We cannot say enough great things about Heidi and highly recommend her wedding services to any other couples! Heidi served as our wedding coordinator in September 2017 and she was worth her weight in gold so that we could have a relaxing and elegant wedding. Thanks to Heidi we were able to truly enjoy our time with all of our guests many of whom had traveled from Europe and across the US to be with us. On the day of the wedding Heidi did an incredible and efficient job running our early morning rehearsal which immediately put everyone participating in the ceremony at ease. She and her two assistants were then present at our venue throughout the day coordinating the vendors as they arrived, setting up decor, and bringing us our bouquets for photos. She even sent me a few photos of the cake and decor as sneak peeks as we were out and about all day with our wedding party. Once we arrived at the venue everything looked absolutely perfect and she even had water set up for the wedding party as we got ready to walk down the aisle (she also had water, snacks, pain killers and whatever else anyone needed!). During the evening wedding Heidi kept everything to schedule and moved the guests seamlessly throughout the venue from the ceremony to the cocktail hour to dinner to dancing. She worked closely with the photographer, caterer, and musicians to make sure everything went to plan. If anything went wrong during the day or evening we did not know about it! At the end of the wedding she and her two assistants packed up all our boxes of decor/cake/leftover alcohol and took it to our hotel so our family and friends were able to go back to their hotels or to the after party with no worries. In addition to the actual wedding day, Heidi was wonderful from day one. After we decided to work together we met with Heidi early in the summer and showed her around our venue. A couple of weeks before the wedding she also came to our final walkthrough with our caterer. We also had multiple check-in calls the week leading up to the wedding to go through final details. During the week before the wedding she was in touch with all of our vendors to introduce herself and to work out any details which took all vendor management out of our hands. In short, we had a very detailed schedule and notes of how we wanted our wedding to run and look and Heidi executed it with precision and even helped us think of details we might not have thought of ourselves. We had 60 guests and wanted a personal, professional, and elegant Chicago wedding. So many guests commented on how smoothly everything went during the day and how much they enjoyed the pace and look of the evening. We were a very happy bride and groom!

Izza and her team were the absolute fantastic to work with! My husband and I hired iMktg Services for full planning services, which entailed everything from monthly in-person check-ins, decorations, guest list, invitations and pretty much everything that you need at your big day. Izza was absolutely incredible at keeping us organized and helping us stick to our schedule. She immediately got to know us as a couple and was able to provide spot on recommendations and advice for all of the thousands of decisions that go into planning a modern christening. If you need a wedding planner, don't even bother looking further! She is one best event planner that will go beyond your expectations. (wink..wink she actually gives a lot of freebies on our event, items and services) What else could you ask for? oh wait, before I forgot, she is young, smart and has a good professional background. Too many to name it all.

My daughter got married in 2015 and Annalisa was our go to gal..she helped us out with everything and listened to my daughter's ideas and made them happen. Phantom of the opera was her theme! Bella events helped answer questions and got the wedding venue to do what was expected and her day was special. She made the bride's/bridal party bouquets. Centerpieces and many extras added. Would highly recommend her again.

I had a great time working with Dana for my July 2017 wedding at Salvage One and would highly recommend her as a day-of coordinator. Since she worked at Salvage One, she knew the venue well and knew what would work and what wouldn't. She helped me fine tune the details for the day-of activities and helped set up all my DIY decor. She made sure everything ran smoothly the day of so that my family or I wouldn't have to worry about a thing. I was able to relax and enjoy my wedding. Thanks, Dana!

Great Value and Trustwothy I was hesitant in the beginning coz of the money and my budget. Too many expenses.. From cake, DJ, floral, planners, favors, balloons, and all rental stuff. I just feel like my budget is too low, I'm glad I still give it a try and get multiple quotes to compare. I came across iMktg Events, their quote is somewhat high so I did ignore it at first coz I got 2 quotes already lower than her. But just instinct, I did open it just to read it through. I was so surprised that she pretty much quoted me for the prices for different vendors besides what service she provided. Please take note I did add on my inquiry my struggles with different vendor prices and coordination, I feel overwhelmed by too many.. iMktg Events does indeed offer everything. Anything you need in your party! floral, decorator, sweets, favors, invitations, rentals, DJ, balloons, vendor management, photo booth, and photography. Izza and her team are amazing. I saved at least 36% from all vendor quotes I got from the different company. Trust me that 36% is no joke. It's a lot of money plus I feel more relaxed thinking I don't have to communicate to any vendor and write multiple checks. As the day comes, my birthday and wedding, it was gorgeous! Everything is what I hoped for and dream for. This company made and my husband so happy. Btw, I hired them for my birthday celebration and wedding.

My husband and I did not realize how stressful planning our wedding would be. I know I literally felt like I was going to pull out my hair (and my fiancรฉ's!!). Fortunately, a close friend suggested I hire a wedding coordinator to assist with the big day. Vibrant Moments saved our sanity! Shay and Janean were proactive, professional, organized, thoughtful, flexible and problem solvers. They reminded us about tasks we never even thought of. They also were informal marriage counselors during those planning conference calls when my fiancรฉ and I had to make decisions LOL! But seriously, they helped us talk through some tough decisions related to the wedding ceremony and reception. Leading up to the wedding, they checked in with the bridal party and all the vendors to ensure our big day was perfect. And when the wedding day finally came, they were on the scene taking care of every detail, big and small. I mean, they showed up with this supply basket that had so much stuff in it it had to be like a magician's hat. One of my bridesmaid's needed a phone charger - they had that. One of my othe bridesmaid's broke her earring - they broke out the glue gun. They had tissues, mints...you name it. And most important, they were fun, had positive attitudes and truly made us feel like the success of our wedding was as important to them as it was to us. We can't thank them enough for all they did to help make our big day special.

Alexis was sooooo patient during this whole hoopla. I couldn't have asked for a better wedding planner than this girl! Not only did she taketime frame she wasn't irritated by my myriad of changes. She was bursting with awesome ideas to incorporate my husband's traditional values and my erratic hippie ways! Overall loved my crazy traditional Greek ortho wedding. Opa!
