Citygirl Events is a full-service event planning company that specializes in weddings, social, and corporate events in Chicago.  Founded by Sharokina Pazand in 2009, the Citygirl Events philosophy is that each event incorporates the five senses for each guest. When planning events, we look at things from the guest experience. What they smell, what they see, what they taste, feel, and touch – all of these elements are important in creating the right atmosphere.


La Belle Fleur Events’ mission is to create a planning process for couples that has them truly excited about their upcoming wedding, and to create a wedding that is reflection of who they are as people. Our team works with our clients to cultivate a one of kind experience for guests, and creates an experience that culminates in a wedding that is filled with personal touches. Leaving no element untouched, we handle all the logistics from guest transportation through the final farewell. Our clients always walk away remembering that their wedding weekend was like no other wedding, and the most memorable day of their lives.


Armed with the experience she gained working in non-profit events for several years, Joan Cinquegrani established Five Grain Events (which is derived from her married last name:  in Italian "cinque" means five and "grani" means grains) in early 2010.  Since then, Joan has worked hard to build a reputation for Five Grain Events by successfully executing more than 200 events over the past six years.  Five Grain Events clients have ranged from brides and grooms looking for help with their wedding days, to corporate conferences and golf outings, to intimate and exquisite dinner and holiday parties.  The Five Grain mission is to support clients during the event planning process by creating open lines of communication and providing a wealth of resources to ensure event success.


People call me Pep. I take pictures, I create designs, instead of whistling, I sing while I work. You may even find me skipping and dancing on the sunny side of the street. I bike between the buildings of Chicago and during winter months my drink of choice is a hot toddy. If you want to get in front of my camera, please send me a note! I also accept invitations to share a toddy with me and talk all things photography... it is what I love and want to share it with you all!
