Get to Know a Wedding Planner: North Shore Weddings and Events (5)

Today’s planner interview is with Megan Estrada of North Shore Weddings and Events based in Chicago, IL! Enjoy:

Tell us a bit about yourself and your company.

North Shore Weddings and Events is a Full Service Wedding Planning company servicing the Chicagoland area and Midwest.  I created the company and started servicing events about 4 years ago.  I had always wanted to move, from the catering and venue side of the event planning business, to the client side.  Wedding Planning is the PERFECT job for my skill set and I love working with my clients to see their wedding dreams actualized.

Every event is unique, just like the people planning it. The wedding planning process therefore has to be tailored to each client. I provide structure and guidance to keep organized, stay within a budget and attain the wedding or event beyond the client’s initial expectations.  Unique events require extra creativity, not necessarily expenditures.  The goal is to produce the most creative and individual event within the conditions designated by the client.

Today’s planner interview is with Ashley of Simply Elegant Group based in Minneapolis, MN! Enjoy:

Tell us a bit about yourself and your company.

I am a LOVER of all things vintage- and I loved that 2014 was all about antique inspired décor! I have been a part of the lovely wedding world for going on 5 years now and I CANNOT get enough! I recently was a bride myself- marrying the LOVE OF MY LIFE Nathan in early 2014. But before I was a bride- I created Simply Elegant, a wedding planning company that is devoted to helping brides on a budget.

Unlike other wedding planning companies, the Simply Elegant Group does not focus solely on the design of an event, but provides clients with as much insider knowledge as possible. Beyond this innovative approach to help you feel comfortable and informed in your event decisions, we work with industry leading wedding vendors to provide couples with significant discounts on products and services. With these exclusive discounts from our amazing vendors, we actually save you money! And what bride doesn’t want to spend less on her wedding??

The most revolutionary part about the Simply Elegant Group is that our goal is to save you more money than what we cost you (Extraordinary idea, right?). We are here to change the pre-conceived notion that event planners are only for the wealthy. We believe that clients who are more budget conscious aren’t getting any less married or having any less fun; they deserve to be fully present on their event day. Here at the Simply Elegant Group our motto is: We are for every bride and groom, on every budget.

Get to Know a Wedding Planner: Chancey Charm

Today’s planner interview is with Sarah Chancey of Chancey Charm based in Atlanta, GA! Enjoy:

Tell us a bit about yourself and your company.

After graduating with a Fine Art degree in Interior Design from the University of Georgia, I gained professional experience in a variety of creative event centered industries, such as floral design and catering. I also expanded my design aesthetic by spending a few years living in Denver and traveling along the west coast. All of my experiences culminate in my work with Chancey Charm as I bring a holistic prospective of the event industry to my work as lead designer and owner of Chancey Charm.

My use of hand-drawn renderings within the event design process is something that developed naturally and fits perfectly into the experience. Coming alongside clients and providing original design boards, which capture their vision and allow them to feel excited and confident about the journey is what drives my passion for the event industry. I have a special love for timeless, elegant designs and love incorporating unique interior furnishings and lighting into every event I work on.

Chancey Charm is a luxury wedding planning and design studio serving clients in Atlanta, Georgia and at destination venues throughout the southeast. Our  team of Senior Planners and Designers work together to meticulously craft bespoke events through the use of custom design PDFs and online planning programs, that bring our client’s vision to life and encourages an open creative process.
