The name SQN Events is derived from the Latin phrase “Sine Qua Non,” which translates to “essential or indispensable ingredient.” And Beth Bernstein’s former clients assure us that Beth and her team were the sine qua non behind their stress-free and spectacular weddings. They refer to Beth as a wedding “advocate”—a caring, hands-on planner who will be there with you every step of the way; creating and sculpting your wedding vision and then managing every last detail so that you can actually enjoy being the guest of honor. With a gorgeous aesthetic, unmatched organization, and high-end customer service, SQN Events is the key to having an enjoyable wedding planning experience and a fabulous end result.
SQN Events offers a variety of packages and services to suit any couple’s needs and budget. Visit their website for a full description of what their packages include. We especially love that SQN Events does not accept commission from their vendor referrals, meaning their sole focus is matching their clients with only the best-matched vendors who truly reflect the couple’s vision.
SQN Events has been featured in numerous magazines and blogs including Style Me Pretty, Elizabeth Anne Designs, A City Wedding, Delightfully Wed, So You’re EnGAYged, 10 Thousand Couples, ChicagoStyle Weddings, and Chicago Social Brides. Beth is also a weekly contributor to TheBrideScoop.com and Equally Wed, the nation’s premier LGBTQ wedding magazine.

“As I have told all my friends—even those who are not yet engaged—if you are even thinking of hiring a wedding coordinator, you must choose Beth; just do it, don’t think about it anymore. She will make any bride and groom’s day easier by handling everything with grace, humor, and efficiency, and she was truly a pleasure to work with.”
“Beth seemed to get what it was that we wanted our wedding to look like but, also importantly, was not afraid to ask questions or speak her mind when we needed some extra guidance.”
“Working with Beth was one of my favorite parts in planning our wedding and I can’t express fully how much I appreciate everything she did for us to make our wedding day perfect and memorable.”
“Beth was very creative at working within our budget and never made me feel bad about having one!”
“The best part was that—as far as I knew—everything went off without a hitch. I’m sure this wasn’t actually the case, but Beth made sure that everyone did their jobs and she didn’t bring any stressful, unnecessary minor issues to our attention so that we were just able to focus on getting married.”
“Beth was able to help with everything; there wasn’t one question or request she did not come through on. It was fantastic.”
“Everything went so smoothly. We had a huge bridal party full of some wild people and she kept everyone in line and on time with a pleasant attitude.”
“Beth went above and beyond and helped me realize my vision, find other reliable vendors, and overall keep me sane.”
“Beth was excellent at listening to what we wanted and also was very skillful in raising questions and suggesting touches which truly made the evening special.”
“They offer a variety of services and different rates to help any bride. I only needed a little help and didn’t have a budget to hire a full time planner and I felt like I got above and beyond what I paid for.”
“She was always quick to respond to my emails and calls, and when I felt like I was asking her yet another ‘stupid, obsessive-bride question’, she was always gracious and reassured me that even my most minute concern was valid.”
“I am very organized and slightly OCD, so letting someone else take charge and be responsible for my wedding was not easy. But Beth delivered and made the whole process stress free.”(What does this mean?)
