We put ourselves in MAE’s capable hands and never looked back. The rehearsal dinner was magical, the wedding day personal and seamless, and the brunch warm and inviting, thanks to Brianne’s attention to detail, experience and professionalism. We all received personalized attention and unlimited hand holding, which calmed jittery nerves and made the process fun and creative. I always felt the team had our backs, and they kept the project on track and on budget. Bravo Brianne!

More than the gorgeous day we had (and it was absolutely gorgeous) and more than the commitment and professional quality of work that Marquette Avenue Events created and coordinated for us - what puts Brianne and her colleagues in the highest regard in my opinion is the care and genuine love they put in for each one of their couples. They will help you find exactly what and who you are looking for to make your day truly special and put so much heart into it. They have built amazing relationships with both their clients and the vendors they connect you with. They will advocate for you and give you so much confidence and the highest standards. Brianne was the best decision we made (besides choosing each other!). We cannot thank her enough.

An extra note - my veil ripped a gigantic hole minutes before our ceremony. Brianne and Diana were as cool as cucumbers and performed basically miracle veil surgery and it still looked beautiful going down the aisle. This is just one of many moments they went above and beyond!

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
