XOXO Bride Events
The artful way this California/Illinois wedding planning company puts the idea of love into a dazzling realization can be seen through the small, surrounding touches: white candles in the grass, a blooming centerpiece that perfectly adds to the ethereal quality of the table, and an overall vision that is beyond picturesque. They tease that they are “gladiators in a dress” but we can believe it. In the wedding arena they are definitely prizefighters.
Bliss Weddings and Events
Although Bliss Weddings and Events carry the word “luxury” in their tagline, their look and feel is anything but uptight. Classic, stylish, and with a touch of glamour, Bliss Weddings has been featured in a wide variety of publications and is held by a strong team of specialists with backgrounds in culinary, fashion, event, and floral and decor design.

Founded in 2008, Durpetti has planned over 300 weddings and her experience shows. A Chicago native whose family owns and operates the landmark Gene & Georgetti restaurant, Durpetti says her company was founded on the principle that event planners must be “good sources of creative ideas combined with practical experience, flexibility and know-how to manage an event from beginning to end,” and we couldn’t agree more.
Sweetchic Events Inc.

Like their name implies, they embody that stylish, chic feel that will make any wedding feel like one in a million.
La Belle Fleur Events
La Belle Fleur have the perfect description of their company on the home page: Effortlessly Romantic. A great love story is behind everything they do, and considering one of their main goals (besides making your wedding gorgeous) is to get you to stress less, you’ll have plenty of time to focus on why you’re walking down that aisle: the “I Do!”
