Choosing the right planner is like going on a first date

we gotta see if the sparks are there!

Hi friend! I'm Alliyah, owner, lead planner, and coordinator in the Southern Illinois region. Experiencing your wedding is one of the most memorable days of your life. Brick + Roses Events believe couples deserve the ability to reflect beautifully on their day with love and tenderness. Honoring unique visions and dedicated service, we ensure your details are built out flawlessly and executed from start to finish. 


As a planner and coordinator, my approach is to work closely with my couples to ensure that all of the details, large and little, are taken care of. To guarantee that this does not alter and that the process runs well, I only take on a limited number of events each year.

we all have a story... here's mine.

After being a COVID-19 bride, I honestly understand that each moment matters and to overly cherish your loved ones. Because the special time and bonds made with family and friends (while planning a wedding during a pandemic) will forever be long-lasting. And finally marrying my best friend (now husband!) makes it all worth it.

That is why I created B+R! It is about celebrating who you are as a couple; sharing your love story with those you love. I believe in a Christ love that accepts all shapes and forms of love. So, however, you want to display your love, I can't wait to celebrate with you!



We are in awe at just how perfect everything turned out yesterday and a lot of that is because of you!! We seriously can not thank you enough! I was able to relax knowing everything was in great hands. You were a life saver to me!
