top chicago wedding planners & coordinators with experience....
“Hiring Katherine was the single best decision of our wedding! Every recommendation that Katherine provided was top notch. Katherine went to many of the vendor meetings with us, which was great because the meetings went smoothly and she knew all of the right questions to ask. One of the things I appreciated most about Katherine was her sharing her true opinion and recommendations with me. I wanted to have a planner but also someone with good advice, creative ideas and recommendations (from someone who has planned so many amazing Chicago weddings already) so Katherine was our perfect fit! Our wedding day went 100% perfectly from my perspective. If it didn't, I still don't know because Katherine made sure everything went exactly as I had imagined! She made the year that we planned our wedding enjoyable instead of stressful and we couldn't have asked for a better planner!”

“Working with Katherine and the team at Clover Events was such a positive experience! We hired Katherine for month-of coordination and help sourcing vendors. We were planning our wedding from San Francisco, so Katherine’s expertise in Chicago wedding vendors was invaluable (we loved each and every vendor she recommended! Our only problem vendor was the one I selected without her input…). She went out of her way to be accommodating with scheduling appointments (with her and other vendors) when we were in town. Katherine did an excellent job of listening to our vision for the event, but also guiding us and letting us know if and when our initial thoughts might not turn out well. I particularly appreciated Katherine’s calm demeanor during the wedding weekend itself – she was smiling and seemed unphased by issues as they arose. Communication was excellent throughout the process. Our wedding day was a dream, and Katherine and her team played a large part in making it possible.”

“The Clover Events team is truly spectacular. They helped us with our rehearsal dinner and wedding day. Our rehearsal dinner included all of our wedding guests and Clover Events really pulled it off. Our day was stress free because of them!”

"We cannot recommend Katherine and the Clover Events team highly enough. I had hoped for her skill executing our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception day-of, but I could never have imagined how much more we would come to rely on Katherine as we planned this wedding! She had suggestions and resources for better vendors that I had never heard of, making our day smoother and less expensive. She had creative ideas to add special touches that I would never have thought about. Her thoughtful questions helped us put together our dream day. Katherine even worked with our family to accommodate a surprise at our reception, without us ever getting a hint that she had so many things going on behind the scenes. Most importantly, she made me feel like I was her only client in the world, and that I was doing a good job along the way. Having such a professional instill confidence in me during the process was wonderful and helped me feel great about the decisions we were making. Her expertise is invaluable."

“Katherine was amazing to work with! She graciously agreed to take us on three weeks before our wedding date. In this short time frame, she helped to simplify the overwhelming details of our wedding by creating a comprehensive vendor timeline, and took over vendor communication. Which in turn allowed us to relax a little bit, and enjoy our wedding and the last few weeks of the planning process. Katherine even helped to control and minimize day-of hiccups such as our missing flower girl and some issues with our guests. Most importantly, Katherine was kind, funny, and joy to work with.”

“Working with Katherine Brown from Clover Events was one of the BEST choices we made for our wedding! Katherine was extremely knowledgeable, professional, warm, and responsive. She knew exactly how to help us navigate the process of planning a wedding from start to finish. Over the 14 months of planning, she helped us: --Determine the right venue location for our needs --Identify well-suited vendors to work with (band, photographer, floral, reverend, day-of paper, lighting, linens, photobooth) --Reserve hotel blocks at 3 different hotels --Stay on track for all of our time-sensitive decisions --Think through all of the easy-to-forget logistics that needed to be cared for --Brainstorm additional ideas to help customize our event Additionally, she handled an unexpected date-change after 5 months of planning like a total pro!!! We couldn’t have pulled it off without her guidance and dedication. I would highly recommend Clover Events to anyone looking for a wedding planner in Chicago!”

“Where do I begin? I can't imagine my wedding without Katherine Healy Brown and her team at Clover Events. From beginning to end, she made planning so easy -- which was great because I have no idea what I'm doing! She stuck to my budget, found me fantastic vendors, was unbelievably organized (so organized that even the vendors commented about how much they loved working with her), and kept all the planning on track. She's well connected in the city, knows what she's doing, and is extremely detail-oriented. The day of was just as good as the planning. Katherine was on top of everything and made sure the day ran smoothly so our families and we could simply enjoy our wedding day. If you're planning a wedding, look into hiring Clover Events. Katherine is the utmost professional and made my wedding day stress-free and a truly polished affair!”
