PRIVATE RESIDENCE

LAKE FOREST

COURTNEY & CLARKE

Tucked behind a vast wall of boxwoods, Courtney's family residence, built in the 1800 by Fredrick Law Olmstead, was the perfect setting for their garden inspired celebration. It was important that the grounds spoke for themselves, and a clear tented structure allowed the team to create an incredible experience for guests without obstructing the beautiful views of the property. A fresh color palette of blues, whites and greens leant itself well to the patterned chinoiserie and topiaries worked into the decor throughout the celebration.

COURTNEY & SEAN

"THEY ARE all-around superhumanS!"

They went over and above to make sure we felt comfortable and confident in all of the decisions we made, never pressured us in any way, were extremely time-oriented and organized, and brought their own creativity and design talents to the process.  If you want a planner who is always one step ahead of you, look no further! Also, we were extremely impressed with Estera Events as a whole as they have very professional systems and relationships in place, which added to the reliability and efficiency of the entire process. Forever grateful for Estera!

MOLLY & SHAI

A REVIEW FROM MARGIE, MOTHER OF THE BRIDE

I would give Estera Events a 10-star rating for the wedding planning and support services they provided to our family if it were possible. They were the linchpin in making Molly and Shai's wedding beautiful, flawless in scheduling and execution, super fun, and truly memorable. No detail escaped their attention. They are consummate professionals who are a joy personally to work with - warm, accommodating, flexible, timely, extremely well organized, and gracious. I could not recommend Estera Events more highly.

KATIE & JIM

"I'D LIKE TO NORMALIZE MISSING YOUR WEDDING PLANNER AFTER THE WEDDING."

They understood the vibe Jim and I were going for, and were such great creative partners – the ideas just flow from them! The questions they asked us to get an understanding of our taste were not run of the mill but poignant, and if I made an obscure reference to a certain fabric or hotel design – they always knew exactly what I was talking about. The understood us from jump in such a way that I wondered if we were friends in pre-school or something!
