Ramesh was a pleasure to work with for a few of our events. Her organization and planning skills are incredible. She doesn’t miss any details and always has creative ideas! Highly recommend Couture Events for your next event!
I Have used Couture Event Planning for three events since 2018. Company does beautiful work, and each event is very individualized to the honoree. No cookie cutter planning here. The special qualities of the honoree shines through. Couture Events is now part of our family, and it wouldn't be a special event without them.
I am not an active Linked In user and I don't post anything on Linked In. But if I did, this is what I would write - maybe this is useful:
Ramesh Soleymani is a world class event organizer. How fortunate we who live in this area to have Ramesh here. She has impeccable taste, her ideas are so creative, she has sources for everything and anything, and she has a magical ability to know exactly what is needed and how much. Anything that she does is with grace and with flair. When she arranged our son's engagement party, I felt like a princess at a ball. It was perfect!
Thank you, Ramesh!
Working with Ramesh made the planning and wedding day itself a breeze! Her expert advice, suggestions and eye for what looks good made me feel like I’m in the best hands possible. She handled communication about day-of logistics with all our vendors, helped fix issues with wedding set up by quickly finding solutions, and when the time came, she helped arrange my dress and hair for when it was time to walk down the aisle. From big details to tiny ones, I knew I could trust Ramesh to handle everything and let me really enjoy my day. My wedding day would not have been as organized, beautiful and stress free without the help of Ramesh!
Would highly recommend using Ramesh for all events- I know I will!
The best party planner!! Thank you for all your hard work in bringing our dream wedding to life! It was truly a magical night!

We hired Ramesh to plan the Bat Mitzvah’s for both of our daughters. She is such a pleasure to work with and extremely creative. The parties were both beautiful and run extremely well. We were able to just enjoy the parties knowing that Ramesh was in charge. I highly recommend Ramesh and Couture Event Planning.
Teaming up with Ramesh for our daughter’s Bat Mitzvah was such a pleasure. She is an incredible person to work with, and we had a great time brainstorming ideas together. Ramesh came up with a fantastic focal point for the party that truly transformed the room into something beyond what I could have ever imagined. She pulled everything together so beautifully, with great ideas for table linens, chairs, and centerpieces.
Ramesh also had some fantastic ideas for the menu, the bar, and the desserts, which were all a hit at the party. The entertainment, including the DJ and henna artist, really added to the fun atmosphere of the event. Ramesh was able to pull together all of the details in a way that allowed us to fully enjoy the party without having to worry about anything. She was also able to help us stay on budget, which was greatly appreciated.
I just can't thank Ramesh enough for all that she did to make our special event such a success. She is truly a wonderful person to work with and I would highly recommend her services to anyone planning a special occasion!
Working with Ramesh to plan our son's Bar Mitzvah was an amazing experience. She is truly an artistic and creative individual, with a great eye for detail and design. She had some fantastic ideas for focal walls and centerpieces, and was able to source all of the necessary resources to bring them to life.
The overall color scheme and room setup for the event came together so beautifully, far exceeding my expectations. Ramesh was able to pull together every detail, from the food and decor to the activities and drinks, to create a seamless and gorgeous party that our family and friends could enjoy.
One of the things that really stood out to me about Ramesh's planning was her ability to keep us on budget while still delivering a top-notch event. I can't thank her enough for all that she did to create such a beautiful and memorable celebration for our family. She truly is a joy to work with and I would highly recommend her services to anyone planning a special event!
We are so grateful for Ramesh and her role in planning our daughter's wedding. Ramesh's personal touch and attention to every detail helped to make it a truly memorable and special event.
Ramesh was able to pull together the wedding in such a beautiful and seamless way, it was one of the nicest weddings I've ever attended. The ceremony was straight out of a movie or a love story, and the reception was transformed into an elegant, gorgeous, romantic, and fun space that exceeded the bride's vision. Ramesh had great ideas for the menu and desserts, and was patient throughout the entire planning process, considering all of the different opinions and ideas that go into a wedding.
Ramesh was instrumental in making the party what it was, and her guidance on everything from the invitations and band to the DJ, caterer, florist, and other vendors was invaluable. She was also a calm presence in the midst of the chaos, bringing a relaxed feeling to the proceedings and helping to ensure that everything went smoothly. Overall, working with Ramesh was an incredible pleasure and we can't thank her enough for everything she did for our family. She has also planned a Bat Mitzvah and a Bar Mitzvah for us in the past, and we wouldn't think of planning any event without her. Her services are truly priceless, as she spends countless hours and puts in so much energy to create the dream celebration that we are all hoping for. Ramesh is truly talented and just a lovely person and we would highly recommend her to anyone planning a special event!
Since we moved to Chicago eleven years ago Ramesh Soleymani through her company Couture Event Planning has planned and executed five beautiful and vastly different events for us!
My daughter’s spectacular Bat Mitzvah, a beautiful work dinner at our home, our twins COVID B’nai Mitzvah luncheon and party (both in a tent) that Ramesh made festive and special and finally my daughter’s beautiful outdoor summer wedding.
Each event was magical! Ramesh was always patient, responsive and calm especially with the uncertainty of the last few years.
She is knowledgeable and always on trend with everything new and fabulous, helping us find the most perfect venues, bands, and Caters!
Perfection! Ramesh is so professional and helpful-I will be using her for future events!
So much gratitude to Ramesh Amrami Soleymani and her amazing team! We could not have asked for a more perfect afternoon!!! Everything was just beautiful and most delicious!
If you are going to hire an event planner, I highly recommend Ramesh Soleymani. We recently hired Ramesh to coordinate a weekend of events for our son’s Bar Mitzvah and she handled so much, with great attention to detail and her follow through made our weekend a great success. Ramesh brought her wisdom and experience to the table and was phenomenal at implementing Our ideas and themes throughout the weekend. She was a joy to work with and if you are going to hire an event planner, they do not come any better than Ramesh Soleymani!
Ramesh helped plan our three son’s bar mitzvah celebrations. She was extremely organized and yet very creative. She made the events beautiful, and everything ran smoothly. Most importantly, she handled all the details so that I was able to relax and enjoy the event without stress. I would use her again.
I also want to express my thanks for making the Lchaim beautiful. So many people remarked to me how impressed they were with your work. Being able to show up at the event without worries meant a great deal. Do not hesitate to add me to your list of references. Once again we appreciate all of your help.
Ramesh, it was a pleasure working with you planning my two daughters
engagement parties. thank you for planning and executing another amazing Engagement party for us!
"I also enjoyed working with you, your professionalism and patience made a
difference. Your staff was amazing, they worked hard to assist you."
"Ramesh made planning my wedding seamless. I had started the process on my own and was overwhelmed and stressed. I wanted to enjoy planning my wedding so we hired Ramesh. She has great design ideas, is well organized, and listened to all my ideas and made them even more beautiful. Not only did she make my beautiful wedding the easiest day for me, but she was also my advocate leading up to the wedding and made sure my vision was executed.
I couldn’t have emotionally or physically done it without her!"
"What a beautiful and magical wedding it was!!! Thank you so much for all the advice, ideas, coordinating all the vendors, brainstorming, professional work and even mental support when needed :) We loved working with you! We came relaxed to our own event, knowing
Everything is being taken care of. Hope to work on many more Smachot together!
Wow! So many beautiful events! It was great working with you, Ramesh, at our daughter's wedding.
You were responsive and always available and on top of things, and you made all our dreams come true.
And all that time we had the feeling we were the only event you were working on.
Thank you again and again!"
"Ramesh is amazing. She helped plan our daughter Chana's wedding this past summer. She was a pleasure to work with and took care of all the details.
She was organized and always available to talk at any time. I will always be grateful for her talent but more importantly her kindness and friendship."
"So much gratitude to Ramesh Amrami Soleymani and her amazing team! We could not have asked for a more perfect afternoon!!!
Everything was just beautiful and most delicious!"
"Ramesh is extremely talented!!! She plan and designed our wedding few years back
It was the most beautiful wedding! She brought all my vision to life on my wedding day! ❤️"

"Ramesh Soleymani made several events for our childrens' weddings.
The beautiful presentation was outstanding. Her creativity came through loud and clear. We couldn't have done it without her.
She wants her events to be perfect and she worked hard to reach that goal. Every detail was just right.
Thank you Ramesh."
"From the first minute I met with Ramesh, I knew I was in good hands and that planning my daughter's Memorial Day wedding would be under control. Her professionalism, creativity and total commitment to making the day perfect worked! Even things we didn't think we needed turned out beautifully. As my daughter said, "we should always listen to Ramesh!" As a result of Ramesh's attention to even the smallest details and her devoted team, we all relaxed and had a blast at the wedding. I know who my first call will be for the next wedding!"
"Ramesh is extremely creative and has an incredible eye for detail. I'd been at her events before asking her to plan my son's Bar Mitzvah, and each one is so gorgeous and elegant, but completely unique.
When I told Ramesh that we wanted a rustic theme that was beautiful but not over the top,
Ramesh ran with it and turned the hall room into a gorgeous wonderland. She also coordinated amazing desserts. Everyone kept coming up to me to tell me how beautiful the event was and how everything was so well run from start to finish. Would definitely hire again!"
"I have had the honor of getting to know Ramesh through many different scenarios. It is my honor to be able to provide this view into what it's like to work with her as a friend, as a client, and even as her boss. In each and every situation, she has surpassed my hopes and expectations.
My relationship with Ramesh started as a friendship in the community. Our children were in the same grade. It was no surprise that her children acted with the same fineness, wisdom, kindness and class that she did.
At the recommendation of others, I hired Ramesh to design my daughters beautiful and elegant Bat Mitzvah dress. Her patience, skill and professionalism were unique and so much appreciated during a hectic and exciting time for our family. My daughter felt like a princess.
Ramesh delivered as promised, well within budget, and her kindness and sincerity truly added to the experience. This was a blind item to me but Ramesh always made sure that I was comfortable with the choices and the prices. Never once did I feel pressured or pushed. She honestly just wanted us to be happy and did everything that she could to make this time special and relaxed.
It is for that reason that I hired her to plan and organize my son's entire Bar Mitzvah weekend. This was a challenge…our budget was smaller and his dream was to have it at a very special and meaningful place. never thought in a million years that we would be able to make it work but she did. She negotiated with the venue. She made every decision easy and pleasant. Her kind and productive advice, her wealth of resources, her professionalism and her incredible sense of style and elegance put her in a category all by herself. my son still talks about how she made his dream come true. She is a true gem. Driven by honesty and by her sincere desire for her clients to be happy and to enjoy their event. I truly could continue for pages and pages regarding how special this woman is. On top of that, anyone I know who has hired Ramesh agrees and speaks just as highly about her.
When looking for talented educators to co-teach with me regarding fashion from Biblical times or unique textile art workshops, I reach out to Ramesh. It is she who the schools request, as well. Anyone and everyone who comes in contact with Ramesh is immediately at ease, inspired and feeling so grateful for the exemplary person that she is both socially and professionally.
HIRE THIS WOMAN, sit back, relax and enjoy the beautiful event that she will plan with you and for you. Clearly, I'd be more than happy to answer any questions regarding my experiences working with Ramesh. I invite you to Reach out any time!"

"I can not say enough good things about working with Ramesh. I've solicited her help on everything from small baby showers to engagement parties to my own 400-person wedding.
She managed everything seamlessly and had amazing insight on how to best work with vendors to describe and create the events I envisioned. She knows how to get things done on time and iand in budget and is 100% my first choice when it comes to event planning!"
"I have used Ramesh a number of times, and many more times been at events she has managed. Her professionalism, artistic skills, and attention to detail during the events are exceptional. My wife and I can often tell when Ramesh is running the event! Highly recommended!"
"Ramesh has planned and very successfully ran several events for our family. She is
professional and organized. I would recommend her without reservation."
"I've been fortunate to work with Ramesh on several events in the non-profit world. Every client referred to Couture has been ecstatic with the experience as the functions have gone off without a hitch while staying on-theme with a beautiful appearance.
1 cannot recommend Ramesh's services highly enough!"
Scott "Shalom" Klein
"Ramesh did a fantastic iob planning many of the synagogue annual dinners for Kehilat Chovevei Tzion. I had the pleasure of working with Ramesh while I was president of the board at KCT, and she always created a comfortable, fun and entertaining atmosphere.
Her staff is top notch, and attention to detail is one of her many strengths.
I highly recommend asking Ramesh to help you plan all your special Events!"
"Deep breath…. ahhhhh…. what an unbelievably successful and meaningful week of events to celebrate our son’s simcha! Thank you very much Ramesh Soleymani!!
It has been 18 months of planning, making preparations, and anticipating our eldest son’s Bar Mitzvah. The ambiance was wonderful, the food was delicious, Couture Event Planning was excellent, and the rare ‘behind the scenes’ issues were handled with care and concern. Every detail was tended to with precision! Thank you again, Ramesh, for the spectacular memories you helped create and facilitate for us and all our guests! We had an amazing and unforgettable time! We have received an overwhelming amount of positive feedback from almost everyone who attended and even those who merely heard about our simcha! The positive comments from our family, friends, and community include compliments about all the various components of an event of this nature, from the ambiance to the food to how well everything flowed and was planned, and the meaningful way David’s tzedakah projects were elegantly and tastefully highlighted; everyone was very impressed.
We are still revealing in the success of our dream! There is absolutely no way we could have pulled it off without the help and guidance that you provided! Ramesh you are undoubtedly smart, patient, organized and tasteful. You pay great attention to detail and have an impressive ability to remain calm under pressure. You were always flexible and generous with your time –we had numerous meetings individually as well as with vendors – and you were always early and perfectly prepared. You had great rapport with all our vendor while at the same time remained a strong advocate for what we wanted. You listened carefully to our ideas, understood our vision, and knew how to get the most out of each situation. Your role as our own personal shopper for everything it took to put on our events is greatly appreciated! Most importantly, your dependability and ability to execute a complicated plan: from the 18 months in the making down to the minutest detail, without even breaking a sweat is very impressive.
Thanks to you, Ramesh, everything went smoothly. You are a big reason why our simcha turned out to be so beautiful and memorable. We feel lucky to have found you and have no reservations in recommending you to anyone whether it is for a BIG or small event! Ramesh you are extremely professional, polite, detail orientated and just overall fun to be around. Your success goes beyond the event planning, coordination and décor that is elegant, fresh, and fun! The full-service planning, customized services you provided, and the execution of our events illuminated our simcha. Couture Event Planning is the best in the industry and offers creative thinking to make your events stand out! We achieved all of our goals we set out to include allowing us to be guests at our own events instead of working it. The ‘day of the event’ service you provided was just as impressive! The buffets presentations were reflective of your passion and love. We are already enjoying working with Ramesh on our next son’s Bar Mitzvah!"

"I used Couture Event Planning for my daughter’s Bat Mitzvah and I was thrilled. I tried to plan everything myself, but I got overwhelmed and had trouble finding the right vendors. Ms. Soleymani helped me get organized and found me the perfect vendors. The party was set up beautifully and everything ran smoothly due to her professionalism. I did not have to worry once during the day of the party, because Ms. Soleymani had everything under control. I was able to enjoy the day, because I knew the party was in good hands. The event was perfect and I owe it all to Ms. Soleymani."
"My son Ari’s bar mitzvah was last April and it was such a pleasure working with Ramesh. She has beautiful ideas and a wonderful flair for design. Ramesh was very easy to work with, she saw to it that every detail was perfect. I would definitely recommend Ramesh Soleymani to my family and friends for any occasion they want to make even more special."
"Ramesh…what can I say??? You were absolutely wonderful to work with. Thank you for making the bat mitzvah such a success. It would never have happened without all your love care and attention to every single detail. Thank you for all your time, the many hours you put into the weekend and for being such a loving, supportive friend. I am so grateful for everything you have given me. Contact me soon so I can settle with you. Love Jodi"
"Thank you very much Ramesh. Noah’s bar mitzvah was wonderful. Your hard work made it easy for us to fully enjoy! All the details were beautiful– as always so nice to work with you. With much appreciation!"
Tara & Brian R
"We used Ramesh to plan, coordinate and manage my daughter's bat mitzvah and we couldn't have been happier with her services. She took our vision, made it a reality and best of all, took all the stress off my shoulders. I have also served on many boards/committees that have used Ramesh's services for corporate events and we are always more than happy with the results. We can't wait to use her for our future events!"
"My husband and I have had the pleasure of working with Ramesh for numerous events.
You can tell from the get-go that Ramesh takes great pride in making sure her clients' needs and visions for their events are the top priorities. She does this while making sure all expectations are managed, delivered accordingly and in a timely manner while planning the most creative, organized and efficient event. If you want to do the job right, and the way you envision your event, Ramesh is the event planner for you!"
"Ramesh helped make my dreams about my big day come true! She understood every detail was important to me and made sure they all came together exactly the way I wanted it to. Ramesh and her team ensured our big day ran smoothly, on schedule, and with out any problems! She was there to help us with planning before the wedding, offer guidance and style advice, and connect with our vendors during the last month before the wedding when planning became stressful for me. We could not have done it with out her!"
"Ramesh, it was great to work with you in planning Rozzie’s Bat Mitzvah party. Every one of all ages enjoyed themselves. The room was transformed beautifully. Your attention to every detail, and your regular communication with Lisa and her staff ensured that nothing was overlooked. I also appreciate your contacting the D.J., the photographer, and the videographer so that everything was coordinated smoothly.
You were also extremely patient and supportive during our revisions and with any last minute decisions.
Your creative ideas and your diligence in pulling everything together made Rozzie’s Bat Mitzvah party very special. As you promised, I got to be a guest at my own party.
Thank you again for helping us create such wonderful memories."

"I just wanted to take a moment and thank you for everything you did to make Elliana’s wedding a dream! I’m not sure I have the words, but I will try.
As you know, this was not my first wedding so I was prepared for all the details that always seem so important and overwhelming. I knew I needed help. But I had no idea how absolutely fabulous you would make everything turn out. From your guidance in choosing vendors to your running the show on the day of (no small feat at such a spread-out venue), you thought of everything. But most important, you oversaw everything and you made it gorgeous, memorable, fun, and exciting. Wow factor!!! A thousand times!!!!
I know that we had a lot of special requests and needs. You met every one of them and oversaw the smooth execution down to the minutest detail. No one could have done that job, but you! The weeks and months of planning and figuring out how to accommodate everyone–you worked so tirelessly! And it all paid off!
You kept me calm, focused, and confident. You listened to my daughter and her fiance and to me and you fulfilled every dream Elli had and stayed within my budget. I don’t even know how you managed to do that! When you brought us pictures of chuppahs and flowers to look at, I was worried–I thought they looked too expensive for us to consider. But you knew! That chuppah, which really set the tone for the entire wedding, was breathtaking. One of my guests called it “ethereal.” It really was.
You moved everyone from one end of that hotel to the other with no help from their staff. I don’t know how you did it. (Please thank Daniel for me, also. He was a calm presence in the hall and in the tent.) You seemed to be in several places at once. All I know is that I didn’t worry about anything–not my guests, the food, the setting. All I had to do was focus on the fact that my beautiful daughter was getting the wedding (and husband) of her dreams!
When you were setting up the dessert buffet, I watched you from the back of the room for a few moments. I noticed how you moved a flower vase here or adjusted a drape there. You have an eye for design, for beauty, for symmetry. It is a rare gift and you are truly an artist. The room was beautiful–tents are always nice, but your addition of chairs, special linens, even those silk paper menus! How elegant! How lovely! How thoughtful! You placed everything artistically, lovingly–every candle, every flower–even the candy on the dessert table! And all within our budget. I just am in awe!
Your additional personal touches will forever remind me how much you cared about my happiness as well as Elli’s and Ben’s. Thank you for everything. Thank you, thank you , thank you!!"
"First, let me say-Unbelievably beautiful! You outdid yourself!
Thank you so much for a Bat Mitzvah luncheon and party that were amazing. I have heard through the grapevine that a father who came to pick up Saturday night walked into the social hall at SVAJ and quoted to a friend ìI have never seen this room looking like this. He said the transformation of the room was unreal how nice it was.
I know that we had some bumps in the road, but I appreciate your patience and tenacity to stay with me and keep everything moving forward. Once everyone knew exactly what they needed to do, I felt that things moved a little easier.
Once again, thank you, the Bat Mitzvah was beyond our wildest dreams!"
"Ramesh Soleymani is the consummate professional. I met with her before my daughters engagement party and told her how much I wanted to spend. She then organized and took care of all the details for that day. She made the day look like a wedding, not an engagement party. She went beyond my expectations. I have attended many of her events that she has coordinated and I am always mesmerized of her talent and detail. She is fantastic!
She will make your event as special and wonderful as if it were her own."
"Ramesh, it is almost a week since we worked together at Robin’s wedding celebration, and I wanted to tell you that your efforts and hard work made my job easy. It was such a pleasure to work with you and I think that together, we pulled order out of chaos and helped make a wonderful celebration.
I hope we will have a chance to work together in the future.
I felt that we worked well together, and I find your qualities of professionalism and competence to be admirable and somewhat rare in the world of event planners and coordinators. I’d be delighted to work with you again."
"You were a very pleasant, supportive partner/supporter/planner! Frankly, I think this is the best event we’ve had, in most ways! I have received loads of unsolicited comments from those attending! I’m glad you and I had the opportunity to get to know each other, personally and professionally. I’m also glad you had the opportunity to get to know TOP!"
"Thank you for another amazing Bar Mitzvah event. Once again, your attention to detail was exceptional. The customized food and dessert menu was out of this world. We loved the centerpieces, the dÈcor, and the personalized details.
I cannot possibly thank you enough. You always make these events so easy for me and enjoyable. I really get to be a guest at my events.
Three Bar Mitzvahs! Cannot wait until you start planning our weddings!"
