Welcome to Emily Nuzzo Events
Hi there! I am Emily and I am so excited you found your way here. I have a passion for curating one-of-a-kind weddings that showcase a couple’s individuality. It is important for me to get to know couple’s personally, what makes them excited about their wedding day and how I can alleviate any planning stress (ew, we don’t want stress). Consider me your right-hand gal, your “planner in your pocket”, your sounding board and the gal that will make sure your wedding day is flawless!
How I Got Here
I was raised in an Italian family where every event was over done and there was way too much food. My love for hospitality started here. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Hospitality Management with minors in Special Event & Meeting Planning and Club Management. I spent three years working in private and public country clubs, managing all aspects of weddings, golf outings, member events and more! I then moved into corporate event planning where I handled large scale trade shows and special events with an incredible team of planners.
After all of these amazing experiences, I knew my true passion was in the private event world and in 2018 I started my business.
I was born and raised in the Chicago land area and now live in Palatine, IL with my amazing Husband, Ryan. We share our home with the sweetest pets Batman (the kitty) and Robin (the puppy). I love interior design and describe my personal style as mid-century modern. Yoga and baking are my go tos for stress relief.
Always the Wedding Planner, finally the Bride.
On May 14th, 2021, I was fortunate enough to have a beautiful, intimate wedding with my husband. We were absolutely a COVID couple and had to reimagine our wedding day quite a bit. I alway preached to my clients that at the end of it all, the only thing that matters is marrying your person and now I believe that on such a deeper level. Here are some of my favorites from the day.
