We had Baroque Contempo Events plan our son’s one year party. Cristina and Blanca exceeded our expectations for the party! The décor was absolutely beautiful and there were so many personal touches that made the entire event so much more special. They went above and beyond with their thoughtfulness about all aspects of the party. In addition, they were so hardworking and nice, accommodating and so easy to work with. The party was much more than we could have imagined!! Thank you!! We will absolutely have you plan future events! More...

My wedding took place this Summer and the beautiful memories I have thanks to Cristina and Bianca are priceless. These ladies went above and beyond to design the most unique floral centerpieces, bouquets and a one-of-kind floral arch for my wedding ceremony. My favorite flowers are garden roses, hydrangeas and orchids so I asked them to create a very fancy still classy and sophisticated look using white and cream colors. I personally don’t like greenery, so the challenge was to find these flowers at a somehow reasonable cost. I was lucky to work with them because they spent a lot of time looking for the best choices to make sure I was happy from beginning to end. On my big day I was totally blown away to see the incredible transformation of our reception and ceremony rooms into a natural garden full of the most beautiful floral designs. I cannot say enough how happy I was to get married surrounded by such beauty. The flowers were so fresh, the roses were just so elegant. Excellent service! More...

I am in awe with Cristina and Bianca! The attention to detail, professionalism and utter care they give to you while planning your special day is unbelievable! I’m SO GLAD I picked this company to help with day of coordination. They started a month early and went above and beyond what a typical day of coordinator would do. I was an out of town bride and Cristina made me feel comfortable that everything was going to be alright. She personally met with all my vendors and made sure they all were on the right track. My wedding day went by seamlessly because of BAROQUE CONTEMPORARY! Thank you both so much for making my day the most memorable event of my life! I just can’t praise them enough! More...

I am writing this review to personally give thanks to the Baroque Contempo Team for planning the most beautiful wedding for me and my wife. As a professional soccer player, I knew that planning a wedding was a lot of work. Together with my fiancé we both travel a lot so we hired a professional who has lots of patience ( we are both very picky), and who can sort out all the options out there and focus only on our vision. I will only say that this company focuses very closely on all the little details, they are experts and can solve almost every situation when it comes to planning a wedding. I booked a full planning package and I am so glad I did it because for 9 months I really enjoyed every minute building my dream wedding. I worked with Cristina and she did everything in time, with lots of passion and she was always very enthusiastic in working and planning everything for our big day. I highly recommend her! A wonderful journey I will never forget! More...

Cristina and her team are beyond amazing! They have a lot of knowledge in the wedding planning. Both me and my fiancé come from large families so we knew there would be a lot of different opinions from both sides as to how things should run on our big day! That’s why we decided to search for a local planner that can deal with all this craziness and that can find solution and take instant decisions that save time and stress!
Let me tell you, we’ve been married for 3 months now, but we still think about how lucky we were to work with Baroque Contempo. Cristina was always able to alleviate all of our concerns and come up with the best affordable vendors in Chicago. We were really on a tight budget, but she managed to refer many professionals that made our wedding a perfect day! We both had an instant connection with her, felt an immediate release and this was the most important thing for us. Cristina was so organized, always in time, and she managed to keep the entire 350 guests happy and without any issues. And by the way, she truly is the kindest and sweetest person ever! And not to mention the most important aspect, she really listens and delivers exactly what you have in mind!! Don’t hesitate to get in touch with her! You will totally love working with her!

When my fiancé proposed to look for a wedding planner a few months ago, I told him there was no way I could be handling communication back and fourth with a planner. My work schedule was very intense, with a position in catering. I thought I knew exactly how to handle all the details of such big day considering I was already working in the wedding industry. Until one of my co-workers told me her horrible story and how frustrated she and her family became when not one, in fact two of her vendors completely messed up the morning before her ceremony just because things got very complicated and communication was completely mixed up. She DID NOT had a planner. When she mentioned that the entire wedding party was about to be completely canceled I then decided to turn to Baroque Contempo and hire Cristina as my Day Of Coordinator. She was absolutely amazing!! Her long lasting relationship with the best vendors and her professional experience proved to be OUTSTANDING.She crafted a very detailed timeline, and every moment was perfectly planned to ensure nothing was left behind. She took care of everything for me, and what’s even better she helped me with so many additional requests, she had lots of patience and always a pleasure to work with. I cannot even imagine a 150 guests wedding without a planner. I’m so blessed I decided to take one!!!!I was really able to have a memorable day!! My fiancé was so happy that I was able to enjoy and live our special moments in full joy!! More...

This is a post thanking Cristina for being the best part about my wedding planning.
I booked Baroque as my florist for my wedding.
I was very picky and had a budget to work with. Cristina took care of everything. She made the process goes so smooth. I only had to show her pictures of what im looking for. She made everything looks even better than the pictures.
She was there any time I texted or called. Even the other details like my cake, stage and other things, she made sure the colors would go together and the theme would be one. She added her touch to everything and made it more elegant and classy.
Here is a picture of my bouquet and center pieces

This Summer, my oldest daughter turned 13. She wanted to make this a more special occasion so I hired Baroque Contempo to plan and design a fun Summer celebration at our house.  We invited about 40 friends and family members and everyone had a great time enjoying Alexa’s celebration. Cristina helped us with the entire process, from ordering the invitations, to making great recommendations for a fun entertainer, to ordering fresh summer foods and especially to design fun decor elements that went well with our theme. Her talent is beyond amazing, she can easily pull of any idea and transform it into a total masterpiece. Not only that but she was always so enthusiastic about the entire process. Planning & Design is really her passion and she places a lot of effort into each little detail. She doesn’t settle until everything looks flawless. The floral centerpiece were beyond beautiful. We were so happy with everything she did!! Best day ever!! Thanks to Baroque Contempo!! More...

I had my 20 year anniversary on August 19th. I really wanted this day to be something very special, so we hired Baroque Contempo to design our floral arrangements. I requested white roses and lots of greenery to compliment wirh the entire decor elements. I was extremely happy with the quality of work they provided. The flowers looked spectacular and all the guests complemented the beautiful designs they created. I have to say that I was really picky and changed a few things around. Cristina really took care of everything and she made sure to deliver exactly what I have imagined. I had a very posive experience using their services. More...

Cristina & Bianca are brilliant at designing the most beautiful flower arrangements you can imagine. I told them what I wanted and showed them some inspirational pictures and they took my vision and totally transformed my wedding day bringing in unique and breathtaking floral elements. They went above and beyond of what I expected. It was lovely that they fitted all my requests and kept everything right at the church and reception room. The hydrangeas were kept fresh and the red roses were absolutely beautiful! My bouquet was executed perfectly and the large centerpieces were divine! Everyone commented on the unusual flowers and how the colors matched perfect to my theme. I am so glad I found out about them and was able to have my dream wedding. These ladies are absolutely passionate about their work! Definitely recommend their floral design services! You will not be disappointed! More...

Baroque Contempo provided the flowers for our wedding last December 2017. The centerpieces were absolutely perfect in every way! Cristina was able to transfer the ideas I had in my head into reality and always listened patiently at our consultations, suggesting lots of flowers that could work for what I had in mind. She will certainly give you plenty of suggestions if you're not sure what you want. This aspect was very important for me as I’m not a visual person and I don’t know much about flowers. She ensured every little details was expertly secured, she set up the flowers in the church and she was always present all the way to our reception venue to make sure the flowers were set up perfectly! Our guests couldn’t get enough on how beautiful they looked. I absolutely loved them. I'm so glad I chose this company for our wedding flowers and would highly recommend it to other brides to be. Worth every penny! More...

Christina and Bianca are beyond amazing. They have a great eye for design, they understand the clients' needs and will work with your budget. They helped us with décor for our Wine Women and Shoes event to benefit A Safe Place, the venue was at indoor Ravinia building, and these two ladies worked magic on this spare two story space. The second time, we had a truly blank canvas one large space where we hosted our Annual Gala last December, and the décor was nothing short of absolutely gorgeous. The colors and décor beautifully complimented with purple which is the color of our agency, it was warm , appropriate and very luxurious - done on a budget - I might ad. Last but not least, these two ladies are not only masters of their craft, but they are incredible human beings, giving back so selflessly, going above and beyond to make sure your event will be one to remember.
Thank you Bianca and Christina for all you do!

Cristina is absolutely a delight to work with. I have met few people who are as passionate as she is – and it truly channels through her exquisite work. She has an innate ability to transform an event into a work of art. Her thoughtful and distinctive touches throughout the decor and theme are what really solidify her place as a top planner in the Chicago event planning industry. In working with her, I've discovered that her demeanor is warm, welcoming, and extremely driven. My hope is to work with her on future projects because her creativity sparks my own creativity, which results in absolutely phenomenal work. If you're reading this and trying to decide on who you want to work with on your wedding in Chicago or the North Shore, I would highly recommend the Baroque Contempo team – if you want a magnificent event that your guests will never forget.

Phenomenal work! Every experience we had during the planning and design process was nothing but positive. During our wedding, both Cristina and Bianca were always so professional and they worked on every little details to ensure nothing was left behind. Our special day was amazing, and many people commented positively how impressed they were about all the decor which was absolutely breathtaking.
BC team was totally involved in building an incredible experience for everyone. We literally had the best wedding ever!
Bianca is extremely creative and has unique ideas. She was constantly available to us, answering any little concern we had. She found us the BEST vendors and our wedding really reflected our personality. Our family and friends told us that the decor looked like something straight from a magazine. They were extremely impressed of the perfect job that Cristina and Bianca did and how they put together such an incredible evening. I can't say enough about how happy we were. They brought in a sense of calm and we knew we could relax and just breathe while enjoying one of the most beautiful moments in our life.
We will always be grateful for everything they did.

EVENTS IN OUR LIVES ARE BOOKENDS TO OUR EXPERIENCES!

EVENTS ARE DIRECTLY CONNECTED TO DATES, TIMES, AND PLACES.
THE EXPERIENCES GAINED FROM THE EVENTS ARE WHAT WE REMEMBER,
THE EXPERIENCES ARE WHAT WE DISCUSS AROUND THE DINNER TABLES,
THE EXPERIENCES ARE WHAT WE CAPTURE ON FILM IN THE WAY OF PHOTOS AND VIDEO.

THE RESPONSIBILITY OF CREATING POSITIVE OR FOND “EXPERIENCES/MEMORIES” FOR OTHERS IS ONE OF THE GREATEST OPPORTUNITIES IN OUR LIFE!
We love the WOW moments and when our clients cry with joy!

We get inspired by nature and art.

Our main goal is to be present and help our clients on one of the most important days of their life.

WE INSURE THAT WE ARE CONSTANTLY CHALLENGING OURSELVES AS PROFESSIONAL PLANNERS TO CREATE NEW, NEVER BEFORE SEEN CREATIONS WITHIN OUR WHEELHOUSE.

MANY PLANNERS DESTROY THEIR EVENTS BEFORE THEY HAVE BARELY GOTTEN THEIR FEET WET…WHY? SIMPLY PUT…BECAUSE THEY REMAIN WITHIN THEIR COMFORT ZONES, REFUSING OR AFRAID TO TRY NEW AND EXCITING THINGS.

TO BE A SUCCESSFUL PLANNER AND DESIGNER, YOU MUST FIRST BE A SUCCESSFUL VISIONARY.
