Lillian Rose Events is an award-winning team of Chicago Wedding Planners with a combined experience of 30+ years in events.


Our diverse backgrounds in event planning, hospitality, wedding & event design, film & TV production & fashion makes us a well-rounded team of logistics experts, design fairies & guest experience specialists.

Our expert team has been featured in national publications like The Associated Press, NBC News, Wedding Chicks, and Maharani Weddings.

Because we know that wedding planning overwhelm is stealing joy from engaged couples, there are certain key characteristics we know we need to have to accomplish our mission of getting all engaged couples back to being excited about getting married.

  1. We are relational. What we do is 90% relationships and 10% wedding planning so we work hard to consistently strengthen our relationships with our customers, our vendor partners and each other.

  2. We are inclusive. Our mission is to get ALL engaged couples back to being excited about getting married. That means we lovingly & equally serve LGBTQ+ couples, BIPOC, interracial couples, any couples of any religion. 

  3. We are creative problem-solvers. Planning a wedding requires creativity in everything from how we design a table to how we allocate a budget to how we manage a dropped cake on the wedding day to how we facilitate the resolution of family conflict.




Alexis opened LRE after spending 5 years in the hospitality industry and nearly 10 years dreaming of owning her own business. While on maternity leave with her oldest daughter, Lillian, Alexis realized that if she was going to teach her newborn daughter that she can live her dreams and have a family, that she had to do it herself first. So with a 3-month-old baby, between naps and nursing, Alexis launched Lillian Rose Events. 4 years, another baby, and 50 weddings later, Alexis is excited to fully step into the role of CEO; shifting her focus to creating new services, allowing Lillian Rose Events to live our mission of helping ALL couples, regardless of budget, defeat confusion and reclaim the joy that comes with being engaged.
