guest star: tying the knot plans your perfect day

With their enormous success in the Chicago area, Tying the Knot is taking wedding planning to the next level. Their attention to detail and quality service give each couple the most stress-free experience during their big day. We sat down with Christine Stone, Senior Consultant (and just one part of the amazing Tying the Knot duo) and learned her favorite part of her job, what makes the perfect event and more. Enjoy!

Stitely Entertainment (SE): How does your company differ from its competitors?

Christine Stone (CS): In addition to creating beautiful, memorable events, we have a strong focus on flawless coordination and guest perspective.  We problem solve as much as possible in advance to prevent unnecessary wedding day snafus.

SE: How did you get started in event planning?

CS: I began my career in event planning 13 years ago as an apprentice and then several years as wedding day assistant to amazing wedding planner, Frank Andonoplas.  Tying the Knot continued to grow and Brooke Righeimer joined me as partner in 2005 when we opened our studio in downtown Hinsdale.

SE: What part of your job do you find the most satisfying and the most challenging?

CS: The most satisfying part of wedding planning is getting to see the entire event come to reality and couples and their family fully immersed in the day without stress.  The most challenging part of our business can be trying to link together differing viewpoints and ideas of the couple and their families to create an event that they will all love.

SE: What is the key to a successful event?

CS: Great communication is definitely the key to a successful event!  Wedding professionals that are all on the page about the flow of the event and working together to make sure that it happens.

SE: What is the craziest event story you can share?

CS: The power at the reception venue went out and the band kept the party going by playing acoustically, while our staff hunted down candles to add to the tables and even got glow sticks for the guests. It was wild but people still had a great time.

SE: Any tips you can give to our engaged clients?

CS: Time on your wedding day is precious and it goes by in a flash.  So be sure to prioritize and plan your day out well.  Disappointment is usually because you received something different than what you expected. So be clear with your wedding professionals about your vision and expectations.

We are looking forward to working with Christine and Brooke this September and October when Stitely Entertainment and Tying the Knot team up for some great events!
