Hey there! I'm Erin, the founder and lead planner of Dotted Events. Dotted Events is a Chicago-area based wedding and event planning company that walks with you at any point along the event planning process.  

After a decade of planning corporate and personal events, I founded Dotted Events because I am so incredibly passionate about making sure that each client can take a deep breath, know they are in good hands and be able to fully enjoy their special moments. From years of being in the industry, I saw there was a huge need for planners who truly understand each and every aspect of what goes into an event, and are able to personably, professionally and knowledgeably serve their clients.

These passions and observations inspired the key elements of the Dotted Experience:

  1. Memorable - I'm not going to lie... event planning and execution takes a lot of work. Whether you're planning a wedding, holiday party or gala, let go of the burden of the details and logistics so you, your friends and your family have time to actually enjoy the planning process and remember the big day itself!

  2. Tailored - Each event is unique, so each planning process must be unique. Your special day will never be squished into a scripted plan, but instead a custom coordination and execution strategy is built based on your dreams and priorities.

  3. Confident - Scrap the worry. Toss aside the fear. Each "i" is dotted and each "t" is crossed so that you know any loose ends will be tied up and the experience will be seamless. Trust me... it's so worth it to let go and feel great about the event!

A bit more about me... I am a logistics nerd and love the thrill of putting together all the moving pieces of an event, thinking through every aspect of an experience and foreseeing the unexpected. I wake up each day incredibly thankful that I get to do what I love most in this world, and I find such a deep sense of purpose in my work as an event planner. The relief I see on a client's face when the weight of planning is lifted off his or her shoulders is one of the best reminders of why I do what I do!

While I love my vocation, I love doing things outside of planning too. My husband and I cook dinner together often, and eat it in front of our fireplace. I also love sitting in our subroon, sipping on a chai tea latte or a nice glass of Cabernet (though black coffee is my staple drink on most days!). 

Enough about me... let me get to know you! Click the link below to reach out and get started.
