Chicago Wedding Planner


Lead Planner | Chicago + Milwaukee

"As you wish" - The Princess Bride

Hi there! My name is Meghan and I am thrilled to be a part of your planning journey with Simply Elegant!

It is truly an honor to plan, coordinate and execute a beautiful event while a (newly married!) couple enjoys the most magical night of their lives.

From our initial correspondence to finalizing intimate details leading right up to your wedding day - we will work together to bring your ideas to life through structured, creative and fun planning experience! I will be behind the scenes on your wedding day, helping to make a  seamless flow of events that will put you and your family at ease to enjoy the day. I love seeing a couple's reaction when they get to see their venue come to life on their wedding day!

One of my favorite wedding day moments is the quiet moment when your standing with your parent seconds before you walk down the aisle towards beloved - the silent exchange of emotion and excitement is truly breathtaking.

As a past bride of Simply Elegant, I know exactly what you are feeling - I have been in your shoes! I understand the outside influences (parents, in-laws, rouge Maid of Honors!) that can make wedding planning overwhelming.  Let me assure you that you are in the most capable hands with us to make your wedding day even more beautiful that you envisioned and have a lot of fun in the process! After all, it is a party!

I am a lover of coffee, Barre Code, champagne, The Chicago Cubs (specifically Rizzo and Bryant), donuts, traveling, and cooking. When I am not obsessing over wedding details, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, getting lost in a good book and enjoying everything Chicago has to offer!

Things I love: Coffee, Chicago Cubs, lazy Sundays, Barre Code and healthy glass of wine 

Things I wish I loved: cardio, high heels, makeup and cleaning!

Things that inspire me: Betty White, Emily Ley’s “A Simplified Life” and all of the strong women in my life :)
