“I feel that I have been an event planner my whole life, it is what I love and it is what I do. I believe that your event is not just an event. I genuinely enjoy each aspect of the event coordinating process. Getting to know you is important to me, as it helps me to understand your personal style and vision. From weddings, to Corporate Galas to intimate dinner parties, each event is given the same amount of time and care and is driven by my passion to create a successful and memorable occasion!”

-Misha Newgren

Receptions of all Sorts, Modern Weddings Part 4
August 9, 2012

In our final recap of wedding receptions of all sorts, we are looking at some modern weddings!  Take a look at some of our favorites!

This first wedding, you can see was at The Rookery.  This was an intimate wedding, with Art of Imagination & Flora who both made this wedding show it’s modern, elegant edge!

This next week took place at Cafe Brauer.  (We work at Brauer a ton and love to share our work there!)  With the help of Scarlet Petal and Blue Plate Catering, this indoor space became the bride’s dream of having an elegant, back yard wedding!

Finally, one of our weddings that has been a huge hit on Facebook & Twitter took place at the Crystal Gardens at Navy Pier.  With the help of Stefani’s Catering creating a customized menu, Event Creative customizing all of the decor pieces, Maggie Speaks keeping the party going all night and Miller + Miller Photography capturing the wedding, it was an affair to remember!




Receptions of All Sorts, Traditional Weddings Part 3
August 7, 2012

In this post, we are looking back at wedding receptions where the ceremonies were in religious institutions.  One was at KAM Isreal Temple in Hyde Park where the reception followed at Cafe Brauer.  The other wedding took place in a church and the reception was to follow at The Palmer House Hilton.  Take a look!

Here you will find the reception that took place at Cafe Brauer.  We were delighted that a few weeks before the wedding, not only was I named Social Event Planner of the Year by Biz Bash, but Limelight Catering was voted Caterer of the year, Event Creative won all sorts of Biz Bash Awards and Maggie Speaks kept the night going all night long.  Fig Media captured the entire wedding on film and because of the talent of photographer Olivia Leigh, we were published in Martha Stewart Weddings!  This was an amazing team of vendors.

Here, you can see our holiday wedding of the year at The Palmer House Hilton!  It was gorgeous and we were so honored to work with Nadine of Fragrant Design who made the bride’s dream come true!  It was also amazing when the bride and groom walked in the room and the bride turned around to all of us and said, “Oh my god, is this really my wedding?”  And we were all delighted to say, “YES!”

Watch Thursday for the final recap of Wedding Receptions of all Sorts!
