About VH Designs

VH Designs is a Chicago-based event design company, with over three decades of experience, focused on making our clients’ vision come to life, and making every experience we touch meaningful, memorable, and special.

How is VH Designs different from a party planner?

A party or event planner coordinates all the moving parts in an event. They make sure the vendors fulfill their obligations and help keep an event moving according to the timeline.

VH Designs, led by Vince Hart, works with clients to make their vision for a wedding, Bar/Bat Mitzvah, gala, birthday party or any special event, come to life. Our initial meeting is a fun-filled discussion of concepts, ideas and themes. Together we create a unique “story” for the event and then we make it come true! The overall vision is incorporated into the setting, including décor, flowers, color palette, table settings, and much more.

Our boutique event design firm caters to one-of-a-kind parties and events. If you want to throw a party that your family, friends, and/or colleagues will never forget, we are here to help you make that dream come true.

VH Designs is led by the well-known Event Designer Vince Hart. Vince has created memorable events in the greater Chicago area and Lake Geneva for over 30 years.



Meet Vince Hart, Lead Event Designer

Vince Hart_ Chicago DesignerAfter working for major event companies for the last 33 years, the opportunity to branch out on my own was too good to pass up. Having my own company allows my creativity to shine while also shaping every aspect of the event design process. For our clients, no project is too small, as we do intimate parties as well as 500 person events.

Each event is one of a kind, completely unique and personally designed by me. My favorite part of the event is working with each family and making their dreams become a reality.

I live and breathe the art of event design. My passion stems from my love of floral, art and architecture. At the age of two, I received “My Big Book of Flowers,” which remains one of my favorite books today.

Aside from all things floral, I am incredibly passionate about Chicago and all that the amazing city has to offer. I often find inspiration for my designs while I travel down Lake Shore Drive. I love giving back to the Chicago community and I am involved in several organizations like the Goodman Theatre and Lakeview Pantry.

“I love making parties. It’s my life. It’s my oxygen.” -Vince Hart

I am constantly on the lookout for what’s on trend as well as appreciating classic design. A fashion guy at heart, I often turn to fashion and interior design for what colors, styles and moods are relevant, and incorporate those concepts into my designs in new and unique ways.

With a wild imagination and a passion to explore the world, I am always pushing the limits of event design to bring the most creative visions to life.
