When Jillian moved to Chicago from San Diego, she diligently ticked off all the boxes (and it should be noted, she does love a good detailed list). Downtown corporate event planning job, picked a Lincoln Park apartment, and learned the grid system. But she wanted more!! After meeting Lauren, she knew LK Events was the place for her and had an opportunity to assist at her first wedding held at Morgan Manufacturing. It is still one of her favorite and most memorable celebrations to date! Jillian's first job that morning was to be sure the wedding party got out the door, and onto the bus for the ceremony on time. Well, the bus didn't show up! Utilizing her years of event experience and trusty wedding binder, she contacted the transportation company, and everyone realized they were just one block too far over. The ceremony went off without a hitch, our wonderful clients were married, and her passion for weddings was affirmed. Jillian loves making sure things work perfectly for our couples, no matter what it takes!
It should come as no surprise that Jillian likes a good challenge, really. She loves running, especially marathons, and is working toward becoming a Six Star Finisher (editor's note: we definitely had to look this concept up). Though she will probably always be a California girl at heart, especially December-April-ish, Jillian loves everything living in Chicago has to offer! There also is not a cult favorite Trader Joe's treat she hasn't tried, and she could probably draw out to scale the layout of the Clybourn Avenue location. However, you will never find her sipping two buck chuck - much like Bridget, Jillian prefers a New Zealand Sauvy B while she catches up with her Bravo favorites - RHONY, RHOBH, and Vanderpump Rules.
Jillian cannot wait to work with you to create a thoughtful and creative plan to celebrate your wedding, and you can rest easy knowing that she has it all under control!
