If you’re looking for a wedding planner, hire Five Grain Events ASAP! Joan and her staff at Five Grain are amazing. Planning a wedding can be an extremely stressful process, but Joan made it a breeze.
Joan is super organized, which made the whole process much easier. She told us exactly what we should do when, and sent us friendly reminder emails when necessary. Joan also did a great job of helping us vet venues, vendors, etc., which was particularly helpful given that Chicago has a million options for everything. Joan also was awesome about working with my mom when I was busy at work during the time leading up to the wedding. My mom picked up a lot of the planning slack for me and Joan was great about working with her to finalize things while still keeping me in the loop.
I also can’t say enough about how amazing Joan and her staff were the day of the wedding. Literally, all I had to do was show up. Joan had thought of everything. She’d coordinated the vendors, set a schedule, emailed my wedding party… you name it, she did it. To this day, I have no clue if anything went wrong the day of my wedding because Joan took care of everything seamlessly. Joan is also incredibly thoughtful. For example, Joan left me and my husband a box of donuts (we had a donut tower instead of a wedding cake) in our car at the end of the night. It was a small gesture, but it was soooo thoughtful and we really appreciated it.
Our wedding was everything we hoped it would be and more all thanks to Joan and Five Grain Events. Hire them. You won’t be disappointed.
