Hey, there! I'm Deniz, Co-Owner & Lead Planner of Amethyst Event Productions. As a native Chicagoan and city girl, I thrive in the fast paced life of a wedding planner. My background in PR and creative advertising led me to a career in special events, working in the city's premier wedding venues. With a decade of experience and 200 weddings under my belt, I put my creativity, attention to detail, and love for problem solving to use for each of my clients. 

Building relationships with my clients is my favorite part of my job. I use an intuitive and logical approach to deliver a custom tailored wedding to fit you, and only you! Let's start planning together!

From Dream to reality

Hello! I’m Jess and I’m the co-owner and lead planner for Amethyst Event Productions. Ten years ago, I started working in hospitality, learning the ins-and-outs of providing a high level of service while simultaneously learning the art of working in overdrive. My background in the events industry ranges from hotels to catering companies to venue management which is a huge asset to my clients because I’m hyper-organized, creative, responsive, and stay cool under pressure.

I am a firm believer that our work should fuel our passions and creativity which is why I love weddings. I strive to bring my clients’ personalities out through inspired and intentional design. Your wedding should be beautiful and fun! I mean, who doesn’t love a good party?

And the adventure begins

the romantic
