What is The Celebration Society

The Celebration Society, formerly known as Occasions Magazine, was started in 2008 by Heather and Andrew Vreeland as a local publication for celebrating all events in style. As the brand grew across the Southeast so too did the direction of the editorial and focus. In early 2015 we renamed Occasions to The Celebration Society (more on that here), the term we’ve always used to reference our venue and vendor advertisers, to get crystal clear on our mission: to always elevate the vendor/client relationship.  

In 2017, we became a part of the Nei-Turner Media Group family and also welcomed Wedding Guide Chicago, now The Celebration Society Chicago, as an exciting Midwest extension of our brand.

In 2019, Nei-Turner Media Group, Inc. announced the addition of ChicagoStyle Weddings magazine to its portfolio of publications. This acquisition combined the current Chicago editions of The Celebration Society Weddings and Parties with ChicagoStyle Weddings (more on that here).


You see, our team isn’t compiled of professional party planners and designers creating original ideas in our offices. Instead, we’re a group of curators all across the country constantly on the look out for inspiring work done by the professionals. We’re particular on style and look with a discerning eye for honest-to-goodness great ideas, great places and great people to share with our readers. We put a face with a name and story with a company slogan. We believe when you have an upcoming occasion on the calendar you don’t have to do it yourself and you certainly don’t have to hire a stranger.  You can meet them here.
