Meet Regina

Regina Gordon

Owner, CWEP

I am Regina Gordon, Principal and Lead Planner of Events of Distinction. I am a Certified Wedding and Event Planner who started planning parties like a lot of people, planning my children’s birthday parties.  Friends and family would ask me to help them plan their parties.  This led to people asking me to help plan their weddings.  Although I majored in Psychology at Loyola University, I found that I had a passion for wedding and event planning and wanted to make it an actual business.  However, life happened and my dream of having a wedding planning business was placed on the back burner. 

Understanding that life is short and fragile has resurrected what I believe is not only a passion but my purpose, which is to help others celebrate life events with an elegant flair. 

As the principal and lead planner/designer, I believe that our lives provide inspiration to those around us.  Love and finding the beauty in the things that surround us inspires me.  That inspiration drives me to create and celebrate.  I take the time to find out what inspired you to celebrate and I create an elegant, unique & memorable event just for you.  We plan out every detail based on your vision for your special day. 


Weddings are a time to celebrate love and commitment. We help you plan and design the wedding of your dreams to the one you love. We make sure that all of the details are executed to your specifications, while making sure that custom touches create an atmosphere of elegance and sophistication to make it uniquely your special day!

Holiday Celebrations

Everyone loves celebrating the holidays. Holidays remind us of family, friends and the traditions that have shaped our lives. We plan and design holiday parties that are customized just for you that add to the photo album or your mind as another holiday filled with memories and fun.

Corporate Events

Creating an environment of camaraderie and teamwork can be key to reaching company goals. Celebrating successes, wins and those who helped along the way can help set the groundwork for future success. We plan and design events that not only showcase your corporate brand, but also celebrate those behind the brand.

Other Celebrations

Life is comprised of milestones and life events that absolutely should be celebrated. We help to make these celebrations beyond special. They become cherished memories, created and customized just for you!
