SMP Illinois Welcomes Our Advertisers!
January 21, 2012

Why hello there! Fancy seeing you around on a Saturday morning! Although we typically put our weekly pretty parade on hold during the weekend, we just had to introduce a few of our newest SMP Family members, making this Saturday in Illinois that much prettier. And boy do we have a lineup of lovelies for you to meet! So join me in giving Robyn Rachel Photography, Five Grain Events and Fragrant Design the warmest of SMP welcomes!
First up is the darling Robyn Rachel Photography. Although she is no stranger to SMP! You've probably gushed over this wedding or this wedding or maybe this wedding - you get the point, she is pretty fabulous and we are thrilled to have her!
About Robyn Rachel Photography...Photography is more than my career, it is my passion! I feel absolutely blessed and humbled that I am able to document one of the most important days of my clients’ lives. My style is vibrant, fashion forward and timeless. Color is my specialty and I strive to shoot extremely clean, crisp images and I believe that not only do your images last forever, but so do those moments. There is something to be said about the emotion that one single image can evoke and all the memories that can be relived with a single click of the camera, and I absolutely love documenting those moments. I truly believe a single photograph is worth far more than a thousand words.

Next up we have the coordinating queen at Five Grain Events! Look closely and you might even see a little discount waiting in the wings! We are beyond excited to welcome Joan to our little fam here in Illinois!
About Five Grain Events...Five Grain Events owner, Joan Cinquegrani, grew up with “Type A” tendencies. She planned her family vacations starting from age 13, color coordinated her closet (even with her mother’s eye rolls), and continues to be the one to organize get-togethers for friends and family. Her background in non-profit events gives Joan a unique perspective on high-level event execution and design within a budget. Her eye for the details ensures that nothing falls through the cracks. Since its inception in 2010, the Five Grain Events team (which comes from Joan’s married last name–in Italian cinque=five and grani=grains) has been committed to collaborating with our clients to create weddings and events brimming with personalization, vibrancy, and panache!

Five Grain Events is thrilled to offer Style Me Pretty Illinois Readers 10% off any packages booked before February 29, 2012. Please email us directly: with SMP in the subject line.

Last but most certainly not least, we couldn't be happier to welcome Fragrant Design to our clan! Floral and event design? Does it get any better than that? Nope, it sure doesn't!
