Founder and lead planner Kate Lerman has a background in events and customer service, plus a lifelong passion for all things vintage. After realizing her love of weddings, Kate started Chicago Vintage Weddings in order to make dreams come true for couples who wanted to have fantastic celebrations without breaking the bank. Her “no pressure” approach allows inquiring clients to make informed, comfortable decisions about what services will best fit their needs, and her relationships with top Chicago vendors result in seamless events at competitive rates. As a planner, Kate frequently saves clients hundreds and thousands of dollars by making experienced budgeting decisions. Kate loves contemporary and modern design just as much as she loves vintage, and feels at home with everything from large, luxurious celebrations to intimate, indie events. Her experience with a wide variety of cultural and religious traditions means that Chicago Vintage Weddings welcomes diverse clientele, with a specialty in interfaith and intercultural events that are as unique as each couple.
There is no cookie-cutter with Chicago Vintage Weddings. The company takes pride in discerning exactly what clients want, and realizing that vision with care and expertise. Pricing allows for attainable luxury on any budget. From stylish, modern affairs to darling, eclectic occasions, CVW goes above and beyond to create a delightful, stress-free event.
