...and I'm a wedding and events planner! Welcome and thank you for stopping by!
Ever since I was little (my 5th birthday party to be exact), I knew I loved planning events (it probably happened while picking out those pink petite-fours from the bakery...hmm, could have been from the sugar-high too...). Many years later, after finishing my Master's degree in Events Management at The University of Westminster in London, England, I began the journey of Rachael Steacy Events - and what a life it has become!!!
My clients' happiness (and sanity) are the most important part of what I do, and to have the chance to combine my love for organization, experiential design, and emotive elements with my passion for serving others, this is truly My.Dream.Job. Need to have All The Pretty Things? Bring it on - I love pretty things too! Want to know how to address an envelope perfectly without offending someone? I've got you covered! But when you look at the photos of my work, I hope you'll notice not just the good-lookin' details, but the beautiful, emotional moments of pure joy that my clients were experiencing. I'd like to think that that is an itty-bitty bit due to me, because most importantly, my job is to make you a more relaxed human who actually gets to enjoy the event you're hosting (and if we're lucky, your nearest and dearest will get to enjoy it too!). So please - get in touch - because I can't wait to hear from you!
The foundation of my business runs off of two quotes: The first, "nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm" comes from an inspirational high school teacher of mine (and I think he may have borrowed it from Ralph Waldo Emerson). The second, from Julia Child: "A party without cake is just a meeting".
So, let's get this party started! (And let's not forget the pink petite-fours.)
The quick facts:
Lover of anything sparkly, believer in equality, drinker of bubbly, and planner of all things full of love and happiness!
Chicagoland-based (but LOVES to travel!)
