Birch Design Studio is Chicago’s leading boutique firm specializing in event design, planning and orchestration. Founded in 2004, we are a team of designers and producers working together to ensure our clients and events receive an unsurpassed level of attention.
Born in Manhattan, owner and principal designer, Marina Alexandra Birch spent her childhood crisscrossing the globe while living in New York and London, gaining a unique and worldly perspective at a very young age.
With a degree in Art History from Princeton University, as well as a BFA in Interior Design from the Harrington College of Design, Birch founded the company over a decade ago with the goal of fusing her training in art, architecture, interiors, and fashion to design singularly unique, and impeccably planned celebrations for our clients.
We work collaboratively with our clients and partners to design, manage and oversee every detail of our events, including invitation design, menu planning, floral, prop and lighting decor, entertainment, transportation, security and beyond. We truly believe that strong partnerships produce the best results, which is why we champion our clients’ voices as well as champion the work of the best vendors throughout the world.
Each celebration we create is inspired by the client's initial vision, paired with our project management and design expertise, resulting in a bespoke event that is uniquely tailored to that client's individual aspirations and needs.
We challenge the traditional assumptions about how events should be planned and celebrated, while respecting the foundations of etiquette and protocol. The end result is always an unforgettable event uniquely crafted for, and with, each client.
