My wife and I were both so happy we went with Brianne, Diana and the rest of the team at Marquette Avenue Events to plan our March 2019 Chicago wedding. We went with the full wedding planning package and were introduced to the best of the best of Chicago's wedding vendors. The suggestions on every aspect from venue to design to music to photography/videography and everything else we needed helped us put on an event that we loved and our guests of all ages raved about. Thoughtful suggestions, attention to detail and extreme professionalism were all part of the package. Day of coordination for both our rehearsal dinner and reception was seamless. We were able to focus on having fun in the moment with our guests. I would definitely hire them again if I ever needed to coordinate another big party and hope to have the opportunity to do so sometime soon. Thanks for everything again Brianne and team. - Robert
It was the best decision to work with Brianne and her team at Marquette Avenue Events. I didn't know how much we needed a planner until we had one! She is professional and no request is greeted with any hesitation. Because of her team, our families were able to enjoy the day without worrying about any details, timing, or logistics. I would recommend her 10x over!! Thank you MAE!
One of the best decisions we made throughout a year and a half of wedding planning was enlisting the help of Brianne and MAE. She was an absolute dream to work with and my family and I are still blown away by how seamless and perfect she made our wedding day. She was professional, organized, extremely responsive, and did an incredibly impressive job of commanding a room full of vendors, bridal party, and family. When my husband and I reflect on our wedding day, our standout memory is being able to fully enjoy one another and our loved ones - while never once having to stress about logistics or coordinating vendors. I cannot recommend Brianne and her team highly enough.
