Sanja Dimitrijevic

Hi There,

I’m Sanja. My journey with LOLA began in 2016. Technically, I’d like to say that it began in 2009 when Kirsty, one of the lovely LOLA Pros, and I met during our freshman year at DePaul University. Little did I know, 7 years later this connection would lead me to read her Facebook post about LOLA Event Productions in Vogue’s “Ultimate Wedding Planner Master List.” I instantly messaged Kirsty asking if there was any possible way I could involve myself with anything LOLA, which had just been named one of the top wedding planning companies in the world.

Who is Sanja Dimitrijevic?

I have always been the ‘crafty-creative-busy bee’ type who juggles multiple jobs in various industries and has side hustles galore. Growing up as an immigrant child, I was raised to work hard and never take anything for granted. Naturally, having a full-time job didn’t stop me from jumping at the opportunity to interview with LOLA and here we are years later! I may be biased but I’ve learned from the best. I’ve been lucky enough to have worked as an intern and assistant alongside the LOLA Pros and take great pride in the commitment I’ve made. Even after hundreds of events, there is something unexplainable about transforming a dream into reality. Seeing a client’s face light up with pure joy and gratitude makes all of the long hours that much more worth it.

Oh, and forewarning – I can guarantee that I will tear up at some point during your event. It happens every single time. I simply love celebrating love and the power of human connection.   

When I’m not in LOLA-mode, at work, or studying for my graduate degree, I’m either working out, baking just because, or obsessing over the latest home décor trends. On the rare day where I have no agenda, I’m usually on the hunt for the newest spot in the city to grab dinner with my boyfriend or catch up with friends. Can you tell I love being on the go? 

Regardless of how hectic things can get on your wedding day, I truly believe that there are only a few key moments people will wish to go back to in their lives. When stress and emotions are at their highest, many tend to forget that their wedding day is only 24 hours. So, as your day-of coordinator, I promise that I will bring calm to your worry and order to your chaos. You’ve done the bulk of the work up until this point. You should soak up every moment and have some fun along the way. Leave the rest to me!

Words from Sanja's Clients

Lola Event Productions is amazing. We feel so lucky to have worked with them!!! Our wedding was June 11, 2022 which is in the middle of probably the craziest wedding season we’ve ever seen and you could not tell that Sanja had been working like crazy. Our wedding was always important to her and the team continued to keep their fast-paced, energetic, and detail-oriented work style in place from beginning to end. I felt confident in Lola and Sanja from the first meeting that was so detailed and I knew they could problem solve any issue. The biggest thing with a wedding is that things are always going to go “wrong” and as the bride you are way too busy to deal with anything. Sanja had everything under control from start to finish and knew when to come to me with questions and when not to which is honestly the hardest skill to learn. They are SO PROFESSIONAL and SO KIND. They have exceptional taste and high standards. We are so grateful to have them. They were always invested in us as a couple and in our events and demonstrated so much passion and energy which really showed through for our life-changing wedding! Sanja contributed so much positivity and loving energy to the event and to both my now husband and me. I know we will stay in touch with them for years to come. The team walked around to every single table, every single table setting, every candle etc, and made sure each detail was in place while Sanja was literally running around everywhere making sure all the vendors were in place and each task was taken care of. Both of our families commented on how Sanja was always in control and dealt with any issue before it became a problem. The team is consistently anticipating the next 3 steps which is an invaluable skill. I have been to family weddings where I had to tell the wedding planner what to do – there was NONE of that at this wedding. Sanja was with me in the bridal suite and was always giving me water, making sure I ate, and overall just being the best cheerleader and hype woman. Working with a woman-led and owned business that is the BEST in the industry is a beautiful experience that I will always remember. I can’t say enough positive things but just go with them if they are actually open on your date…trust us!
