  • My fiance and I absolutely love working with Christine and the rest of the team. We knew right off the bat they were a perfect fit for us. They have been so easy and organized and every idea they have comes from the heart. We haven't had to change a single thing and trust them with every little detail. Recently, my fiance and I had to make the decision to postpone our wedding due to covid-19. I fully expected the change to be very stressful, but they have made it stress-free and very relaxed. Kendall has gotten in contact with all of our vendors quickly and easy and we have been able to lock in everything again within a few days of switching our date. Bless her. I couldn't have asked for an easier process. I love them so much and will continue to use them for every little event I need from here on out. Not only are they great planners, but great friends too.

  • Initially when we began to plan our wedding I was trying to be superwoman and plan it all myself...even with my husband's help I quickly realized I was in over my head. I met with several wedding planning companies in Chicago, but after we chatted with Christine and Colleen I knew we had met out planner. Though we first consulted with Christine, it was Colleen (and Kendall too) that became out point planners. We'd had a good bit of our wedding pieces in place when we met with e CJD but what I was most anxious about was logistics, timing and all the what-ifs you never plan for. Colleen was my rockstar. I was stressed and anxious and every step of the way she reassured me that they "had me!" AND THEY DID!! Our day was smooth sailing and effortless for me. If something went wrong I didn't know about it and that's exactly what I wanted. She stuck by me throughout the day as well as having an additional planner with the grooms party. I couldn't be more grateful that we decided to work with... Read more

  • I'm not sure I can truly put into words how amazing the team at Christine Janda Design and Events truly is. To provide a little background, I met Christine Janda a little over 4 years ago when she created most beautiful bouquets and boutonnieres for my wedding day. Since then, I have followed her religiously on Instagram and I have loved the details posted from each of her events. In planning my twin sister's bachelorette party, I knew exactly who to contact. Quickly after shooting her an email, Christine gave me a call to discuss my vision for the event as we also reminisced on my wedding flowers. From this conversation, I knew Christine's team was going to work their hardest to make the weekend special for my sister and her friends. Over the next few months, I worked primarily with Colleen and Christine, an amazing duo, who provided me with options and ideas for the weekend, making everything so so so very easy on my end. They contacted restaurants, photographers, and bars so that I ... Read more

  • We worked with CJDE for floral, design and day of planning for our October wedding - one of the best decisions we made! Christine, Colleen and the entire team were so great to work with and helped pull together our dream wedding! The florals were so beautiful. From our bouquets to the tables centerpieces, they captured our vision perfectly. I dont know what I would have done without CJDE for day of help - they answered my many questions, pulled together a flawless timeline that made our day (and leading up to it) stress free, and helped navigate an unexpected rain storm day of!

  • We hired CJDE to handle the floral design portion for our wedding at Chicago Illuminating Co. Christine was the only floral designer to present and execute the exact color palette and look we wanted for our wedding. It was very important to me that the actual designer, Christine, be on-site to make sure every element was executed perfectly. However, due to uncontrollable and unforeseen circumstances, Christine was unable to be present on the day of our wedding. But I was completely unaware of her absence because the florals were executed perfectly. I share this because it's very rare to find a business and business owner, that truly has a passion for what they do, but can also execute your vision. But it's even rarer to find a business and business owner, to execute through his/her team, even if the designer is unable to be there. I was sent an email from Christine, informing me of what happened. She wrote that even though she had to leave town, she made sure to help prep... Read more

  • Choosing Christine and Colleen was the best decision we made on our wedding day! We used them for both floral and day of coordination and everything was executed flawlessly. Our floral was so beautiful that I actually cried when I saw it. Colleen did an amazing job coordinating our day and setting up our timeline. Everything ran smoothly and effortlessly. I would definitely recommend them!!

  • I booked Christine and her team through an Elope to Chicago package for our early August 2018 wedding. We had a small wedding, so we used their services for 2 corsages, 5 boutonnieres, and 1 bridal bouquet. Each arrangement was just beautiful and they were even delivered to our hotel before the promised time! We worked specifically with Colleen, who was helpful in suggesting arrangements that would work with our color scheme. She was even patient when I totally changed my mind a couple different times. I also feel that pricing is very competitive with other florists in Chicago, especially considering the excellent level of service!! - Blaire & Matt

  • Christine and Colleen were by far the best decision we made while planning our wedding! Where do I begin? Well, from the beginning... From my very first conversation with Christine, she made me feel understood, at ease, excited and like we 110% absolutely needed her to be a part of our big day. Being the Type A person that I am, my mom and I had planned out almost all of the details and the timeline. But even then, I knew there were things we weren't thinking about and things that would come up that day that we were not prepared for. I wanted to make sure that my husband, my mom and I could all enjoy as much of the day as possible. Christine introduced Colleen to us, and we hit the ground running about a month before the big day. Colleen jumped right in and sent a list of questions, documents she needed, etc.--all so organized and prompt, which I loved! They were so responsive and attentive, which made me think how do they do this with all of their brides? Such patience :) Christin... Read more

  • We booked CJDE for our day-of wedding coordination and floral design for our July wedding. We had the pleasure of working directly with Christine along with Colleen, one of her event directors. All of our floral was very well done, of the highest quality, and absolutely gorgeous. Christine took extra time to meet and talk with us about our vision and make sure we were getting exactly what we wanted, right down to the smallest details. She gives direction to refine the ideas you bring to her, as well as makes her own suggestions on things you haven't yet thought of in order to create the most beautiful design. She was understanding of our budget and did a wonderful job of making changes as needed to keep us at our target price point. With regard to their the day of coordination, you get so much more than that! CJDE will meet and communicate via text and email 3 months leading up to the big day. I had booked nearly all of our vendors and completed many things by time CJDE took ov... Read more

  • Hiring Christine and her team was hands down the most important decision we made for our wedding! I will attempt to hopefully express the profound magic this visionary created for our most special wedding day. Christine and her team really went above and beyond, well...above and beyond. Although full of emotion, budgets and opinions... The planning experience was the opposite of stressful. I felt not only relaxed, but also excited the entire time. Whether it was initial big picture venue selection down to the micro details towards the end, I felt genuinely energized and excited. She might call her self a planner but she is way more . She’s really an advocate- with all the intricacies- most of which she doesn’t even bother you with, I felt thoroughly accommodated. And at the heart of all of it- was her drive to nail OUR style. To truly listen to our vision and somehow put her magical touch on it to bring something we didn't even know we wanted to life in a way that was "so u... Read more

  • I was referred to Christine by my wedding venue coordinator when I was truly struggling to find a decorator that could help me make my vision for my wedding come true. I emailed her and she responded quickly responded to my inquiry which put me at ease instantaneously. When I met Christine, she was a breath of fresh air! I felt like she really cared about my vision and what I wanted for my wedding. We discussed a few ideas that I had and her and her team put it together perfectly for my wedding. I never felt stressed with the decor and design for the wedding because Christine and her team were always on top of it! She knew what I wanted and what would blend with the venue and on my wedding day everyone just kept saying of beautiful everything was! There arent enough wonderful things to say about Christine and her team! They are amazing!

Christine was a great resource for the design, overall feel of the event and planning advice throughout the year. We thank them both wholeheartedly!

  • We used Christine Janda events four our day-of wedding planning based on a recommendation from a friend. We worked with Colleen and she was very helpful - meetings starting several months before were very well organized and thought through, and Colleen gracefully took a lot of the details and coordination off our hands so we could focus on what we really wanted/needed to. She was also very responsive throughout the whole process which we really appreciated. The wedding went off without any issues so we would certainly recommend Christine Janda events to others!
