Tell us what makes your business different from other wedding companies?
Christine Janda Design & Events is filled with talented Wedding Planners, Designers and Florists. Our Events are produced from this one cohesive vision as I know in my heart being a Wedding Planner, the keeper of the logistics and special nuances that makes you and your fiancé YOU, drive the most unique event designs. These designs are inspired by countless meetings and discussions that can only derive from this in-depth time together. In my eyes the beauty of a wedding comes from this customization. And flowers?! I am proudly biased that the flowers are the romance of any wedding! The accessory to any well fitted affair is punctuated by flowers and I love that we execute this design work for our couples.

What is your best advice for engaged couples?
Do not let anyone tell you, not one family member, friend or vendor, that your wedding isn’t a top priority! Yes we have all lived through so much these past few years and yes I believe in grace and only working with amazing vendors who are equally talented as they are kind hearted. With that said, this is your one time and you deserve it. Point blank! Let’s celebrate YOU!
Do you do anything that is signature to your brand?
For all weddings that I lead and plan, I still personally design their bridal bouquet.

What is the most gratifying part of your business?
The relationships I have built with my clients and Chicago vendor community. I have built a business on referrals and have planned countless baby showers and 1st birthday for my couples. I have also produced countless “friendor” weddings and events. How we plan and run our business I am immensely proud of.
Tell us what makes your business stand out?
Our work has a heart beat. You can see it in the photos but wow…you can see it at our events. Our couples become lifelong friends and their guests all night run up to one another saying…”did you see THIS and this and THIS!! This is SO them”. The most tiny and delicate of details is what makes a CJDE event special.
