    Kate + her team were an absolute dream to work with! I not only felt like the only bride they were working with throughout the entire planning process but truly felt as though I had an extra sister(s) with me on my wedding day. The entire Cygent team was by far our most raved about vendor. Extremely professional and years and years of experience that made our wedding day smooth sailing. I cannot thank Kate and her team enough!

    There is no reason to look further. I’ve done all the research on Chicago Wedding planners for you, and you’ve hit the jackpot! I interviewed 4 wedding planners and out of them all, Kate was the only one I felt comfortable would bring my visions to life. It was May of 2020 when I started my search for a wedding planner, and as of October 1st 2022 I am finally married and I had the wedding of my dreams thanks to the most amazing wedding planner out there, Kate. Kate with Cygnet Events and Design (formerly Chicago Vintage Weddings) will keep you completely on track, she will connect you with the most AMAZING vendor list in the industry (who all adore her), and you will absolutely fall in love with her charm and her passion for your wedding day. She will be completely honest with you and not sugarcoat anything to make sure that your day is stress free and perfect. Because I was considered a “covid wedding” for a while, the amount of obstacles that we overcame were overwhelming at times, but I never batted an eye when it came to an issue because I knew Kate would fix it or present me with the best options possible. There were times when vendors told us that their policies had changed, or something wasn’t going to be what we thought it was because they hired a new staff, ie. However, Kate had EVERYTHING in writing. And I mean everything. Always. She is a master at reviewing contracts and catching tricky wording to help her clients. She is quite literally, in all sense of the word, your extreme advocate. I am FOREVER grateful to have had Kate by my side my entire wedding day and have everything go off without a hitch. I had MULTIPLE people coming up to me in my bridal party, in my family, and tell me all the same thing “your wedding planner is outstanding”, “I went to your wedding planner with X question and she helped me right away”. Did I mention my husband and I had a bridal party of over 30 people and she handled it seamlessly? The day of the wedding, my bridesmaids kept coming up to me while getting ready saying “Why do you look so calm??”, “why do you not seam stressed out?!”. Besides the fact that I was marrying my best friend and had nothing to worry about, I knew that Kate would be there with any little thing to help. Also, Kate was the only one who could figure out my bustle. I LOVE YOU KATE! YOU ARE THE BEST OF THE BEST! Anyone who hires you is the luckiest Bride/Groom in the world.

    We cannot recommend Kate and her team highly enough for wedding planning. From the moment we first connected with Kate in planning our July 2022 wedding, she was professional, organized, and demonstrated profound expertise in all things related to Chicago-area weddings. Throughout the planning process, remaining on budget and carefully tracking expenses was very important to us, and Kate provided the tools and insight needed to ensure we could stay within our number. When some vendors came in higher than expected, she helped us find other areas where we could save without ever feeling like we were compromising. Kate was fantastic in helping us refine and execute on our eclectic wedding vision. With a goal of providing a wedding that felt very personal to us and our relationship, we incorporated many different elements both handmade and from outside vendors. Kate helped bring these disparate elements together in a way that, on wedding day, felt seamless, beautiful, and personal. Kate’s deep relationships with vendors were critical to the planning process - she was able to ensure that vendors were responsive, on budget, and successfully executed the day of. While she provided a fantastic list of recommended vendors across every category, she was also happy to opine on any vendors we were interested in evaluating outside the recommended list. In the days leading up to the wedding, Kate helped keep us calm and collected no matter what situation arose. A couple key members of the wedding party fell ill, rain looked like it could be in the forecast, but Kate helped keep our heads on straight and made sure we had a backup plan for everything. On the day of, she was on point to ensure everything ran smoothly - it was truly an incredible wedding day, and we could not have done it without Kate!!

    Hiring CVW was a no-brainer after speaking with Kate. Her professionalism, industry knowledge and warm personality sold us. After meeting our coordinator Aly, it was clear that everyone at CVW is top notch! She took away all the day-of (truly month-of) stress and to-dos so that we could focus on spending time with our families and friends. And she loves dogs! As a COVID bride, I was always waiting for the other proverbial shoe to drop, but with CVW it never happened. Would recommend them without reservation!

    If I could give more than 5 stars, I would. Hiring Kate and her team was by far the best money we spent for our wedding. We went with the month of coordination package, design, and also got some vintage rentals. I think Kate was honestly born to do this work, she was everything I could have wanted in a wedding planner and more. First, in regards to design, she is an excellent listener and has amazing intuition. From her very first design proposal, she got everything I wanted spot on. I am not an easy person to please when it comes to design either. However, Kate might be even more of a perfectionist than I am (in all the right ways)! I was seriously in awe when I walked into our reception venue – it was stunning. Second, Kate is amazingly patient, yet professional, and gets the job done! Our parents (who where footing most of the bill for the wedding) can be difficult people to work with. Not only did Kate take care of every single request (some being a bit ridiculous), but she did so quickly and with a smile. She remained calm and composed through every single minute leading up to the wedding and every single minute of the nearly 16-hour wedding day. Kate and her team are well connected and organized. I cannot imagine trying to source and wrangle together all our vendors without Kate’s help. She got us the best deals and ensured everything was delivered, set up correctly, and picked up again – all I had to do was review the contracts and pay the companies. Finally, Kate ensured the day was, first and foremost, about me and my husband. She made sure we didn’t have to stress about a single detail day of. She made sure we stuck to our timeline – which was huge. At one point during the reception, we were 30 minutes behind schedule, which meant that the photographers would leave before all the important events for the evening were over. However, she got us back on track and kept everything in line. While doing so, she was so calm and it seemed so effortless on her end, I didn’t even panic for a second. One last note…I had to fight hard with our parents before hiring Kate. They truly didn’t understand how her services were worth the amount of money she was asking for. Even once I convinced them and through out the process, they were skeptical. However, the day after the wedding they said they finally understood. They were amazed at how smooth the day went, how beautiful everything was, and how much fun they were able to have because they didn’t have to worry about every little thing. They agreed, Kate and her team is worth Every. Single. Penny.
