Meet Danielle, the official boss-babe of Ohana Events! Within her 9+ years as an event planner, she has planned and designed some of the most elaborate and memorable events in Miami, Chicago, Austin, Mexico, Italy, and many places in between.
Meet Jenna, the lady who brings her expertise in hospitality management to every single one of her clients. Due to her background in floral design, she is able to tap into her creative side for all the events she designs and builds from ground zero.
Meet Mara, the morning workout queen and driven corporate event + wedding specialist. She’s passionate about maintaining efficient timelines and making sure nothing falls through the cracks. Leave it to her to become your friend after your event, especially if you’re a concertgoer.
Meet Sonya! While she’s based in the Windy City now, she is the only planner not born in Chicagoland. She has always been operationally focused and loves to zone in on the smallest of details, especially when it comes making her couple's day everything they've always dreamed.
Meet Emily, our lead planner based in Michigan, servicing all around the Great Lakes, Northern Indiana and Chicagoland – as that’s where she began her career. Emily has been a part of the events industry since 2016; with past experience in catering, venue management, and working as a bridal stylist – so you can imagine she's obsessed with the wedding world.
Meet Rachel! She was planning weddings and events with Danielle before Ohana Events was open. As a lead planner in the Destination division, it's easy to say she is obsessed with the uniqueness of every event. She loves how no two events are ever the same, pushing the envelope with new trends year after year.
Every event we orchestrate is brought together by love or a common interest. We feel that no matter the guests invited, each event is bringing together some sort of family. That does not have to mean blood-relatives, Ohana technically means anyone you "consider" family. Everyone has a dad’s best friend that they call uncle. Everyone has a work buddy that they eat lunch and talk with day after day. No matter the ties, these are relationships that we enjoy bringing together for events. And every time we finish another successful and meaningful event, we have more people in our Ohana. What more could we ask for?
“Ohana means family. Family means nobody gets left behind or forgotten.”
