I worked with Katie as a Day of Coordinator for my very DIY wedding and reception and she was phenomenal! I had an outdoor barn reception, requiring coordination with multiple vendors in addition to DIY decorations, table set up, etc. Katie was so easy to work with, created a detailed timeline for us and the vendors, and made sure everyone stayed on track the day of. She even helped set up tables and decorations prior to the day of, giving her advice and suggestions and much needed time, which was so awesome of her! The day of was perfect and I'm so glad Katie was there to help and I would recommend her to anyone!

I worked with Alison from 'The Smitten Bride' as my day of coordinator. I'm a project manager by trade, so I had pretty easily planned the entire wedding but the idea of having to focus on any of the details on my wedding day was daunting. That's where Alison came in. Everyone I knew convinced me to stop being a control freak and get a DOC, and it's the best decision I made. The second best was going with Alison.

After interviewing a handful of candidates, I kept coming back to Alison because she totally seemed to click with me. Over the course of our meetings, we were always on the same page, and she kept me feeling very mellow. We were in fairly constant contact over the 3 months leading up to the wedding, and she pulled together a very detailed timeline of the day for us to execute. As a manager, this totally rocked my world.

On the day of the ceremony, Alison very ably worked with the vendors to ensure we stayed on schedule, adjusted the schedule as needed and that if there were any issues, I had absolutely no idea. Our guests all had a uniformly excellent time, and much of that is due to how well Alison managed the day. Extremely highly recommended. If you're a PM, you're going to love working with someone so skilled. If you're not a PM, you will need to work with someone this detail oriented to ease your mind through the planning and day of process.

We had the pleasure of working with Katie from Smitten Bride and it was easily one of our best investments! We secured Katie only 2 weeks before our wedding and she was able to get everything in order for the big day so easily!

Personally, Katie was super sweet and understanding and had so many different suggestions for us- because even with 2 weeks left to go, there were still MANY things that had not even crossed our minds.

On our big day, Katie was ready to go and had created the most detailed timeline ever. She took care of EVERYTHING and is the sole reason why I was able to completely enjoy my big day without stressing or worrying about the details. I would choose Katie and The Smitten Bride over and over again if I had to! Highly recommended!

Thanks Katie & The Smitten Bride for all of your help and expertise in the wedding world!

Love,

Sitaara + Jeremy

We used The Smitten Bride for day-of wedding coordination and they couldn't have been better. We had Katie as our coordinator and she was extremely helpful and fun to work with. We started working with Katie a few months before the wedding, and as the wedding got closer, she handled all of the communication and coordination with all of our various vendors. This took a TON of weight off of our shoulders. She also helped draw up a minute-by-minute timeline for the entire day. On the day of, she made sure everything happened according to that timeline, without us even having to think about a thing. She was also super responsive and easy to work with--both us and all of our vendors loved working with her. Having her there the day of made all the difference and made the day perfectly smooth. Our day had zero bumps or issues (at least as far as we knew!!). Would highly recommend these ladies!

Katie Jones of "The Smitten Bride" coordinated our daughter's November, 2013 wedding in Chicago. She was invaluable. She is organized and knowledgeable, and she is absolutely unflappable. She is also incredibly generous with her time and talents -- she did far more for us than the services delineated in our contract. The ultimate example: she actually went to a store on the morning of the wedding and purchased an undergarment to replace one that the bride found was not working with her dress. All with a smile and a reassuring demeanor.

We had about 3 1/2 months to plan a formal downtown Chicago wedding. Right off the bat, she found the venues available for our date that fit our preferences. She quickly learned the style that the bride and I (the MOB) had in mind, and set out to present to us ideas and vendors that would be a great fit. She coordinated, oversaw, and kept us to a week-by-week schedule, which she adapted to our compressed timeline, and then, at the end, prepared and coordinated our minute-by-minute timeline of the entire wedding day. Most important, she simply thought of everything, and made sure that everything was taken care of, all the while conveying no stress whatsoever, even if we did our best to stress her out a bit!

We interviewed another wedding coordinating service before settling on The Smitten Bride. While not inexpensive, The Smitten Bride charged literally half what the other service quoted, and I do not believe that any other service could have done more, or done it more professionally, helpfully, and kindly, than did Katie. Katie excels at being flexible. She finds ways to make any change in plan or preference work smoothly. She answers or returns every call or e-mail, and she makes sure she arrives early for every meeting, event, and rehearsal.
The Smitten Bride is worth every penny.

My husband and I worked with Katie from The Smitten Bride team for day-of coordination. We began working together a couple months out from our big day. She was extremely organized and helped pull everything together to pull off the wedding we had envisioned. Every member of the Smitten team was extremely friendly and their passion for their job was evident in every communication. All phone calls, emails, and text messages were quickly responded to and I felt a huge weight lifted off of my shoulders knowing I had someone trustworthy and experienced handling the behind-the-scenes details. We were able to simply enjoy our wedding day and celebrate with friends and family. I absolutely would recommend The Smitten Bride for all of your wedding planning needs.

I hired The Smitten Bride as a day of coordinator for my recent wedding. It was an absolutely great decision. I worked with Katie - who was sweet, professional and organized throughout the entire process. Whenever I had a question or needed anything, Katie always responded right away. Everything on my wedding day ran perfectly - Katie was there when we needed her but also spent a ton of time prepping behind the scenes. I would definitely recommend The Smitten Bride / Katie to a friend!

The Smitten Bride is fabulous and an essential part of any Chicago wedding. We used Smitten Bride for onsite coordination of our downtown Chicago wedding and were beyond pleased. Katie was amazing from the start! She was so organized and very helpful in countless ways. She was insightful and readily available during the month leading up to the wedding and helped us to think of details that we never would have addressed without her guidance. Onsite, her and Brittany were truly a saving grace! They were attentive and friendly during a time that can sometimes be stressful with many moving parts. Many of our guests commented about how wonderful and helpful they were! Our bridal party and family (and obviously us!) were so grateful that Smitten Bride was there on our wedding day. I did a lot of research and received many quotes and will tell you now to just look no further- these ladies are true professionals and will not let you down!

Jenn of Smitten Bride is the best ever! We joked that we would never have another wedding without her! Haha. Our wedding was during the holiday season and I was attempting to be a DIY bride. Problem was, I had 2 lame bridesmaids, a disinterested yet still critical mother-in-law, and a mom who was half the time too busy to help and the other half too sick. My fiance, bless his heart, wanted to be involved with every detail; but he was working so much - sometimes 70 hrs a week! - that we never got anything done because I was constantly waiting to have time to look at things with him. I got very overwhelmed. I had a bit of a meltdown and couldn't even think about how to get anything done. It was like my brain melted. We hired Jenn only about 6 weeks before our wedding (remember, too, it was the holiday season!). I'm just going to cut to the end, here. There was not one single person at my wedding that didn't say, "This is the BEST wedding I've ever been to!" Yes, the choices were mine. But the execution would have crashed and burned if not for the magic worked by this wonderwoman with a down-to-the-minute timeline. She even hemmed my hubbies pants three hours before the ceremony. She was more than a wedding planner, she was a great friend to us and we felt very blessed to have found her!

Thank you to Jenn and Kate of The Smitten Bride! You guys were amazing! I couldn't have done it without you. You were my confidante, critic, best friend, sounding board and sometimes mom, all rolled into one. They were my greatest advocates! These ladies were professional and accommodating. They are not at all pushy but always there to lend a hand (or an ear or two) or offer suggestions. They probably saved me a couple of grand because of their recommendations (who doesn't love that!!). My guests were very happy and are still commenting on what a great wedding it was. I am a very satisfied Smitten Bride!!!

I worked mainly with Katie as our day-of-coordinator for our September wedding. She did a great job, running around and keeping things on track. We had SO many different vendors coming in for our wedding, we could NOT have done it without her!! She answered all of my questions and calmed my nerves about some snags we ran into with some of our vendors. My only complaint was she was extremely late for our wedding rehearsal which made me frantic due to the venue breathing down my neck to get in and out. I had no clue what to do without her! But she eventually showed up. That's why I took off a half star for the "professionalism." But overall, Katie and the Smitten Bride team did a great job and would recommend them to others!

I am so glad we chose to work with Smitten for our wedding! We got married at the Rookery building in Chicago this August and hired Smitten as our day-of planners. They helped way beyond just the day-of and made our actual wedding day run so smoothly. Throughout the planning process, they were there to answer numerous questions, provide recommendations, met with me twice to go over the very detailed day-of timeline they put together, coordinated with all my vendors to make sure they would arrive on-time, get paid, etc. The did it all! They were such great women to work with - always had a positive attitute and put everyone at ease. The day of the wedding, they kept everyone on time - the boys were ready to get on the bus for our photos, family arrived on time to everything, weird family member drama was taken care of without me even knowing (the best!), they coordinated end of night clean up and dealt with any issues that arose with the venue/caterers. Absolutely amazing - I can't say more positive words about them! Hire these ladies - they will make everything run so smoothly!

Many thanks to the Smitten Bride for helping us organize our big day. Katie was awesome. We couldn’t have done it without her. She was such a joy to work with. Her professionalism, enthusiasm, patience, and ability to adapt to any situation made her a valuable asset on what could have been a very stressful day. We also greatly appreciated her willingness to help out wherever needed, from pinning on corsages, cleaning up the church, and moving floral arrangements, etc. We can’t thank her enough for her efforts and would highly recommend The Smitten Bride to other brides-to-be.

I had so many different vendors. My photographer, DJ, caterer, table rentals, photo booth, servers, and bartenders where all from different companies! So you can imagine how happy I was that they were there to run everything. I would strongly recommend them to any Chicago bride! I only had them for the day of coordination and they were great!

We dealt mostly with Kate, though we did get to meet Jenn & Katie, too. These ladies are WONDERFUL!

We booked them to be our day-of coordinator, but they were willing to answer any questions throughout the whole process. On our wedding day, Kate & Katie worked our wedding, & I mean they WORKED! The temperature was ridiculous, & there were snafus we didn't count on, but these two women were pros. They had great attitudes throughout the day, regardless of what came their way.

I'd highly recommend them to anyone, & - if I knew then what I know now - I'd have hired them to be full-on coordinators from the get-go.
