We treat your special day as a once-in- a-lifetime opportunity to craft an experience that uniquely reflects you and your partner. From an urban setting in the heart of Chicago to a rustic retreat, our team will ensure each and every detail is perfect.

What They Say About Us

I am so incredibly grateful for your team's professionalism and support. You were all a huge help to us in the face of my supervisors's requests for last-second changes and I'm so thankful for all that you and your team did. Meanwhile, the food was truly excellent: It was fresh, it was satisfying, and our attendees were delighted. Many thanks for everything you and your team did to make our event a big success!

Tricia K. Chicago

From the first meeting it was clear that you were the right coordinator for our wedding. Your experience, guidance, understanding of what we were trying to achieve was immediately evident. Throughout the planning process, you continued to offer new ideas, were willing to accommodate the various changes / ideas that naturally are part of imagining that perfect event, and did so reassuringly which rewarded our confidence in you. Yes, you were very competitive but always without sacrificing the wonderful feel we were trying to achieve. The many details were handled proficiently and professionally. The day-of staff handled every detail perfectly. It met and exceeded all of our expectations.

On behalf of Haley and Dan and our entire family, thank you for making it “The Ideal Day”.
