"Be yourself, everyone else is already taken." - Oscar Wilde

Hello! I am Christina, lead planner and designer, planning weddings and events all along the West Coast and around the world. Planning events is certainly a passion of mine and I take my role in each and every event very seriously. Every event should tell a story and a unique one at that. I believe that details are everything that makes an event into an experience. I also believe that your wedding should truly be your wedding. There are no rules in wedding planning, nothing you should do or have to do, only what you want to add to the day to make it your very own and fun for all of your people.

I genuinely want to learn more about you and your story and I will also share mine. A stranger couldn't possibly create an experience for you as personal as a wedding, so let’s be friends! I would love nothing more than to gain your trust and be the one to execute your wedding vision with you. Wedding planning is a partnership and a collaboration, we will work together to create an experience that you can be proud to share with your friends and family.

I am available events anywhere my passport can take me – I have had the opportunity to create weddings and events across the globe and I have a thing for sourcing vendors in any location, near and far.

Weddings are not my only passion. Surprised? I also have a passion for floral design so, yes, I can make your floral dreams come true too! When I am not deep in my timelines and checklists, I spend my time seeking inspiration outdoors, chasing my toddler, and consuming as many movies as humanly possible.

Want to work together? Want to know more? Let’s chat.
