About  Us

Brio Celebrations offers event planning services for celebrations of all kinds to clients in the greater Chicago area and Northwest Suburbs of Chicago. 


Carin grew up as a classically trained violinist and played at countless weddings, parties, and receptions of all kinds for many years. Her love for lavish, elegant, and spirited events continued during and after law school, where galas, corporate parties, and fundraising events were frequent and abundant.


Carin’s background as a practicing attorney gives her a unique perspective on organizing many details at once – often seemingly too many details – ensuring that they all come together in the end. She is well versed in working in high-pressure environments and handling them with poise and grace. Often being referred to as the “quality control” person by numerous colleagues, her practice in attending to details is an essential ingredient in planning events of all kinds and making sure they are executed without a hitch!


At Brio Celebrations, we are dedicated to helping your dreams come to fruition, and implement your vision with ease. Whether it is a wedding, party, anniversary celebration, corporate event, or any other celebratory gathering, Brio Celebrations will be there to manage as many of the pieces as you need help with! We would love to speak with you and customize a package to fit your needs for whatever the celebration is for.
