    The term "vendor" doesn't begin to cut it with Event Shoppe Chi. Jennifer and her team are the most above and beyond, dedicated, detail-oriented individuals we have EVER met. We've been in the world of weddings for many years, but Jennifer stands out like a shinning star. Here's why: she set up a zoom meeting ahead of our couples wedding in order to get to know us and ensure we were on the same page for every portion of the timeline. She did this for every single vendor involved with the wedding. On the day of, she and Margaret brought such upbeat energy to everyone around them. They were on.top.of.it. Jennifer continually kept everyone on track and the day rolling seamlessly while keeping things light and fun. If there was something we saw that needed to happen, she was already on her way to address it. How do we give ten stars is what i'm wondering?!? Whether you're in Illinois, Wisconsin (or honestly anywhere in nation), Jennifer and her team are the absolute BEST decision you will ever make.

    Jennifer was magnificent. Right after we were engaged, my wife started interviewing wedding planners. At the same time, we saw that venue bookings for 2022 were filling up. We felt surprisingly rushed while over a year out. But then Jennifer entered our lives. She was willing to tour two venues (Dalcy and Morgan Manufacturing) with us on short notice with merely a handshake agreement. She was the right fit for us, and we began the yearlong journey to our wedding weekend. It was an amazing party. Jennifer smoothed out rough moments (i.e. my bow tie), and she made us feel excited all the way through the long process. She understood classy design but was willing to advise us on cuts to stay under budget. Jennifer was also super helpful with guests the day of. We could always point people toward her, and she knew what to do. In fact one of our attendees said to a friend, “I didn’t plan to ever get married. But I kinda want to just to work with your wedding planner.” Wry but true. Jennifer is great to work with. She made our wedding slick.

    TLDR: Kevlyn Hayes & Event Shoppe Chicago were the best wedding investment we made. ----- I truly do not understand how someone can coordinate a wedding without a planner. If that is you, go figure. It is CERTAINLY not me. Originally, I thought I could do it. I had a general idea of the vendors I wanted to use for our wedding, and reached out accordingly. But about 6 months out—as I started to get into the thick of the details, vendor coordination and timelines—I realized I had unfortunately girlbossed too close to the sun. On a whim, I reached out to a high school friend who’d recently had a beautiful wedding to ask if he’d used a planner…to which he replied with a LONG paragraph singing the praises of Event Shoppe Chicago. This is how we started to work with Event Shoppe’s Lead Wedding Planner Kevlyn Hayes. When I tell you Kevlyn single-handedly lowered both myself and my husband’s blood-pressure, I’m not being dramatic. Kevlyn is detail-oriented, direct, honest, and—above all—incredibly kind. She kept us on track from our first conversation and answered every last question & anxiety we had. When we were sick of making decisions, she knew how to come in with opinions based on years of experience. When I say she handled everything…I mean literally EVERYTHING. Timelines. Vendor coordination of said timelines. Setup and takedown of our details. Last minute, inevitable emergencies (which she handled before we had the time to panic about them). I know that the reason we were able to relax and enjoy our wedding is entirely due to Kevlyn and the entire Event Shoppe team. Weddings are amazing, but they are a LOT. This was without a doubt the best investment we made and we'll be Event Shoppe hype-people for the rest of our lives.

    It was the BEST decision we made. I love love love a good to do list and we received such a detail list. That solidified our decision and I knew we were in good hands. Ashlee was on top of everything, and it made the weeks leading up to my wedding stress free. She stayed on top of the venue about scheduling our dinner tasting which was a hassle, created an amazing day of schedule and SO much more. She was so kind and organized. We had quite a few unexpected guests show up and she worked her magic to get everyone seated at dinner. I really could not have asked for anything more. We cannot thank Event Shoppe Chicago enough for helping us create our dream wedding!

    We can’t say enough great things about working with Jennifer for our wedding! I’m a detail-oriented, somewhat micro-managing bride with a ton of friends already married (aka lots of advice) and a team of sisters ready to help. He is a thoughtful and involved groom with an event planning mom and lots of unique opinions. Despite all of that, we decided to use a planner because there were so many items to manage, a bit of refereeing required, and we wanted us and our guests to be able to focus on enjoying the moment and not have to execute all the important details when we got to the big day – BEST DECISION EVER. Jennifer was wonderful to work with throughout the process. Of course, she killed it on the day of. We didn’t even realize until a month afterwards that several of our guests re-arranged their own seats, the whole program was over an hour behind schedule, and we had a few crashers show up! But it was working with her through the whole planning period that was truly above and beyond our expectations, removing tons of stress and anxiety from the lead-up to our wedding day. One thing I can promise about planning any event – things will happen that you can’t anticipate. When we started our monthly check-in calls with Jennifer, she suggested going over the full detailed timeline beginning a whole year before our wedding. We smiled and rolled our eyes a little bit, joking about how perhaps she was a bit over-zealous but we were going to get it all done- no problem. Joke was on us! Despite all our best research and communication with the various vendors, when we got to the month & week before there were several items that didn’t play out according to plan. These ran small and large, from not having the correct number of boutonnieres, to deciding last minute that everyone needed to covid test on-site, to our lead venue contact switching three times- the last one being the weekend before our event! But Jennifer had been with us every step of the way as we’d made all these decisions, and she quickly and easily adapted for the changes in stride, without stressing one bit or compromising any of our standards, which she understood very well. Jennifer and her team truly went above and beyond. She is a breath of excitement in every meeting, has a wonderful network of talented vendors she can recommend, and is highly attentive & respectful to all of the little specific things that may not matter in general but matter to you. In addition to all of that, she can handle any opinionated family member or friend with ease, making them feel valued and happy while also keeping their last-minute suggestions from messing with your plans. We can’t recommend her enough, and would happily be a client reference at any time!
