Gianna SanFilippo
Owner / Design Dreamer & Schemer

After years of coordinating large-scale functions in the corporate event industry, Gianna still craved a career that allowed her to get a little more creative and personal with her clients. So in 2007, she founded Chic Celebrations on a mission to provide clients with highly personalized wedding and experiential event design. Since then she’s become a sought-after event planner known for her impeccable style, flawless execution and magazine-worthy celebrations.

Balancing classic luxury with bold, modern touches, Gianna has a direct hand in the planning and design of each event. Her positive attitude and energy help clients feel confident that they are in the right hands. When she’s not planning events, she’s usually enjoying brunch somewhere or relaxing with her family and you can spot her sporting a messy bun and an oversized handbag.
