Aces Event Planning



ABOUT ACES EVENT PLANNING



Thank you for visiting our webpage; I’m so glad you stopped by! Planning a wedding can be daunting and understandably so - that’s why FOTF and I created the tri-cities wedding guide. Hopefully this guide will give you a head start in selecting the vendors that make the most sense for your big day. If you’d like additional help navigating this webpage, are interested in receiving more information about a vendor or idea you found here, or would like to connect to discuss Aces Event Planning services, please reach out – my door is always open! But first, let me take a minute to introduce myself.


My name is Alexia, the face behind Aces Event Planning. I love "a-ha" moments when the perfect little detail appears in my mind. For as long as I can remember, I took charge of any given situation, identifying what needed to be done and creating a clear path to get there. After a wedding planning internship in high school, I knew special event planning is where I was meant to be. Following a food and beverage internship with Conrad Chicago and an event planning internship with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago, I graduated from Purdue University with a degree in Hospitality Management, with a concentration in special event planning and management. Life lead me straight to corporate America where I spent over 5 years planning corporate meetings, social functions, conventions, and galas for thousands of guests while planning weddings on the side. Because weddings and social functions are where my heart resides, I left corporate event planning and launched Aces Event Planning.



Aces Event Planning is an event management company specializing in weddings in Illinois' Western suburbs. Aces believes that life's most cherished moments are meant to be lived in - requiring you to be fully present by observing every sight, every smell, every lovable, laughable piece that together create a lifelong memory.
