Designed & Detailed Event Management is one of the few Wedding Planning Firms in the world who specialize in luxury, sustainable weddings.  Home based in Chicago but always up for our next planning adventure. A proud supporter of the LGBTQA+ community, we plan events for all of humanity.  We thrive on diversity and it should go without saying that we will plan for ANY and ALL!

We believe that every wedding should be an event that leaves a lasting impression on your guests—and on you! That's why we work with our clients to design and plan events that are elegant and sustainable from start to finish. We start by taking stock of what's important to you: your vision for the event, how it will fit into your budget, and what kind of impact it will have on the environment. Then we create a customized experience that is uniquely yours.

Our team has extensive experience in all aspects of wedding planning and execution. Whether you need help with finding venues or hiring vendors, we are happy to help. We also offer full-service event planning services if that is what you need.

We love working with couples who want their wedding to be an unforgettable experience for everyone involved—including Mother Nature!
