Friendor Friday: MLP Events
Happy Friday! Today I’d like to introduce an amazing event planner, who I’m honored to call my friend, Monique Pirtle, of MLP Events. As wedding vendors, we work with a lot of amazing people, and every once in awhile you magically click with someone, and a beautiful friendship transpires. We were introduced by a mutual friend. Along with fate, allowing our paths to cross numerous times, it truly is a pleasure working with Monique.
Monique has a special way of embracing stressful situations and making everything come off as effortless. When I know Monique is my planner, everyone’s in great hands. Stop by Monique’s website and say, “Hi!” She will make your amazing day better. I promise.
Company Name: MLP Events. MLP stands for Marriage Love Parties.
Service Area: Chicago & Chicago-land area, office is located in downtown Downer Grove, IL
Years in Business: I have been in the industry since 2010.
Affiliations: I am a certified Professional Wedding Planner through the Association of Bridal Consultants in which I am currently an active member and the State Manager for Illinois. I enjoy my role and the chance to assist others with their professional career paths and providing a lending ear to those who need it!
How Did You Begin Your Career? I began my career after planning parties, weddings, and events for my family, friends, and co-workers. My love for helping people on the job translated into a career assisting people with the most memorable days of their lives.
What is Your Planning Style? It’s all in the DETAILS! I am a very detail-oriented and organized planner who has a love for unique and special touches. From the choosing the color scheme to hiring chairs that fit the venue to adding little quirks that make the day unique to the couple – I love bringing every piece of a client’s’ vision to light and truly creating an experience that they will remember for a lifetime.
Why Are You Passionate About Event Planning? I am passionate about making a connection with my clients. The smile on their faces when they see their space for the first time or the hugs at the end of the night really are why I love to do what I do.
