Where to Propose in Chicago...Find Your Perfect Location!

When you love your job, it ceases to be work. I help to bring about the happiest day in a couple’s life as a Chicago Wedding Planner and I feel so honored to be a part of this incredible milestone. My passion is weddings—each of them unique as the bride and groom who celebrate them. My priority is building a bond with every bride so that she is more friend than client. I see myself as an ally—one that can truly understand what every wedding says about each couple.

I have been around weddings my entire life. As a girl I shadowed my father, a talented photographer, and president of the Wedding Photography Association of Orange County. From this unique beginning, I was able to soak in so much information. I not only learned the components of documenting these celebrations, but I began to see how the entire day is carefully orchestrated, like a waltz.

I continued to grow professionally, working with the most elite catering company of Southern California, The Turnip Rose. Here, I learned the nuts-and-bolts of weddings—all the behind the scenes activity that must come together to create a perfect day. I became well-versed in successful preparation, set up, coordination and styles. I am always eager to gain more knowledge, to come up with new ideas, and I learn from each of my brides. For the past ten years in Chicago, I have continued my journey, learning everything I can along the way.

I simply love weddings. My talent for paying attention to detail, truly listening to what my brides want, and ability to think creatively, make me a natural wedding coordinator. My experience will make your wedding planning creative, exciting and easy. Visions Event Studio is my vision realized.

My job is a privilege; my work is my passion.

Warm Regards,

Jenee Strickland

Being a part of the wedding industry has always been a fantasy of mine. I believe my one of my main callings in life, as an artist, is to help create and execute unforgettable weddings, proposals, or events that could help make brides and grooms fall more in love with each other than they already have. Being a part of Visions Event Studio has so far allowed me to become an integral member of the wedding planning team, heightened my appreciation for the wedding planning industry and the details of the events, and has shown me how to execute beautiful events.

My love for wedding planning sprouted when I realized how intricate the organization is. I hadn’t ever realized how much love and time goes into a wedding. My passion most lies within the satisfaction that comes with watching all the magical details come together on the big day.

I’m ecstatic to grow personally and professionally within this company. I look forward to taking on the new and challenging responsibilities that will help further my knowledge for the industry. My biggest goal would be to help the bride and groom create and execute their ideal event, down to the very last detail.

[Mini Intern]

I’m a 3rd generation creative, my grandfather being the first.  He was a wedding photographer in California where my mom was an intern and learned so much.

Since I was four, I have always wanted to help my mom with her job.

I love creating anything, whether it’s art, baking, or crafts; my hands are always dirty with glitter and paint.

I started helping my mom in 2017 where I fell in love with the proposals.  

She allows me to help choose the flowers, make rose petals (that is one of my favorite things) and even allows me to set up and light the candles right before the big moment.

I love to pray for the couple before hand and am proud to be helping my mom with the couple’s biggest day of their lives.
