“BEST MONEY I EVER SPENT. We used You Name It Events to do day-of coordination for our wedding, and it was one of the best decisions I made…We felt organized and prepared going into our special wedding day. The day of the wedding went off without a hitch. They made sure everyone was where they needed to be, coordinated with the other vendors, kept everyone on track, and made the day absolutely stress free…There was truly not one single moment I was stressed. [Everyone was] able to truly enjoy our special day. Thank you so much for all your hard work!!! Couldn’t have done it without you. If you are considering a wedding planner for your big day, CHOOSE YOU NAME IT EVENTS!!!!” *Capitals/Emphasis are Jenna’s

“Absolutely 5 star-service & delivery all around. Hiring Leanne & her team was the absolute best decision I could have made and worth every penny (& then some!)… It was so helpful to have a single point of contact for all of the other vendors & handles any problems that arise. She’s basically the Olivia Pope of wedding planners/coordinators! 🙂 Best of all, I was actually able to enjoy our wedding day & knew that my family and bridal party was able to as well since Leanne was behind the scenes taking care of all the details…The piece of mind alone to know that you will be able to have fun on the day you’ve spent SO much time (& money!) pulling together makes having a day-of coordinator ABSOLUTELY worth it.”

“THANK YOU for all of your help throughout the night to make things run smoothly. I have to say, you are most pleasant to work with!  I’ve been in the business for 20 years, and most venue directors and event planners are not as kind and willing as you.”
– Curt, catering colleague

“As parents of the Bride it is with pleasure that we write a review about Leanne and “You Name it Events”. Our daughter’s Wedding at St. James Cathedral and the Chicago Symphony Center in Downtown Chicago couldn’t have been better “orchestrated” then by Riccardo Muti himself. Leanne’s detailed planning of the day’s events help make this a perfect Wedding Day for our daughter and son-in-law. What we really thought was most impressive was Leanne’s ability to “think outside the box” and be ready with a contingency plan in the event that one was needed. You can’t be this good unless you have seasoned experience and a great staff. Thanks again Leanne for making this an unforgettable day for the Bride’s parents. You feel like part of our family now.”

“YNI thought of and prepared for everything. Not a detail was missed from how to walk down the aisle to ordering the most romantic flower arrangement I’ve ever seen.”
– Sabrina & Sal

“Leanne and her crew were amazing every step of the way. I found Leanne through the vendor information I received at the Geneva Wedding Walk, and I’m so thankful I did that walk! We hired her for “day-of” coordinator, but the service we received was so much more than just day-of. Some of our best vendors were booked due to her recommendation, and her opinion was always objective and with our best interests in mind. I relied on her expertise so many times leading up to the wedding, and she put me at ease every time. And what she was able to pull off for us on our wedding day was spectacular! I was a little more scatter-brained than I thought I would be, and not as organized as I would have liked. She was able to take the vision I had in my head and translate it into real life better than we were picturing. As what typically happens with weddings, something will undoubtedly come up with eitheIt’s taken us a while to get back into our routines since our wedding and honeymoon, but we finally are and I wanted to make sure You Name It Events was the first review I did!r vendors or guests, and Leanne and her crew put out all the little fires we needed tending to and kept us in the loop only with the essentials, which allowed us to really enjoy our day. She managed to ensure that my husband and I had plenty of alone time when I requested it, and she surprised us with a private dance/song from our cocktail band. While I was dancing the night away, she packed up all our personal belongings (which was a lot) and loaded them in my parents’ car and she helped all our vendors stick to our timeline. My only regret is not re-allocating our budget and hiring Leanne to plan our entire wedding! My husband and I were joking on our honeymoon (whenever a conflict would arise) that maybe we should just call Leanne and see what she would do!!”
