La Vie En Rose: Meet Debi – 6 of 52 Phenomenal Women

Meet Debi (@debililly), we share a mutual love of family, Chicago, as well as magical Nantucket. This Chief Eventeur has been designing perfect events for decades. She has quite the high profile clientele list, but also regularly shares tips on how anyone can take their events from “grocery to gorgeous.”

From a very early age, Debi drew her party planning inspiration from her grandmother (Gigi).  “My friends would come over, see all our beautiful family celebrations, gorgeous table set for the holiday, beautiful presents overflowing under the tree, and exclaim – ‘I’ve never seen anything like this!’ Gigi always makes everything so thoughtful, full of tradition, and creates moments to cherish.”

Her career began before Debi even graduated college as she was planning away; sorority sister’s weddings, designing flowers, invitations and more. She loves to weave a creative thread into all the planning and design details – from start to finish.

Born and raised in Chicago, Debi has loved the Hotel InterContinental Chicago Magnificent Mile for many years. She chose this location for her photoshoot as the beautiful hotel is a family favorite. “Complete with a Great Gatsby swimming pool party vibe and gorgeous family suites we sink in and unwind together. It is rich with gorgeous architecture and full of 1920s history. My kids love to spend the weekends in hotel robes nibbling room service as they pool party, while I throw parties and weddings downstairs in the gorgeous ballroom.”

Making FUN a priority…

I feel that I wait all year for summer and it passes so quickly. One thing I promised myself this year was to focus on NOW – So last week, I scheduled two fun activities. If you are in Chicago, you certainly should check them out.  HAPPY PLACE through 8/6 and Wild Women Of Planet Wongo through 7/28.

As a photographer, going to Happy Place with my son and fellow photog, Colin, was such a blast. A true playground of visual delights. I don’t think I’ve laughed so hard in a very long time. (See the ball pit photos for proof of that!)

Bring your friends and your cameras for an instagramin’ fun time!
