The best!

There aren't enough words to describe how invaluable Christina was to making my wedding the most amazing day ever. I decided to hire Christina as a day of coordinator after booking all of my vendors. I had wanted someone who would be able to make the wedding day running smoothly so I could enjoy the special occasion. At my first meeting with Christina we went over all basic details of vendor information and the people included in the bridal party. She made sure I didn't miss any details. Having her go over my plans felt like a huge weight lifted off my shoulder.
But it wasn't until the week before the wedding where Christina really started to shine. She was my rock as I stressed over family member after family member getting COVID, unsure if they would be able to attend the wedding. She listened and reassured me that everything would be alright. We also came up with backup plans that would still allow those family members to still experience the special day (thankfully it never came to that!)
Even after we dodged the COVID obstacle, Christina showed her best talents even more the day of the wedding. She ran the event so smoothly, making sure we were on (and even ahead of) schedule. All the guests were thoroughly impressed with how efficient she worked. She directs in the most firm, professional manner, yet still comes off as super friendly, a skill I genuinely admire.
If you were to ask me if I would recommend Christina, I would say ABSOLUTELY 1000%. Thanks to Christina, we had an amazing wedding day that my husband and I will never forget, and a day that our family and friends will talk about for years to come!

Christina is AMAZING!

Christina was our JOP at our wedding this past weekend and was absolutely awesome. She crafted a heartfelt, unique ceremony that was absolutely catered to us and our relationship. Our friends and family raved about it. She was reasonably priced, easy to work with, very nice and professional. Absolutely recommend!

The best wedding coordinator!

Christina was the best to work with! She was so helpful in keeping me organized and on track during the planning process. She was an excellent resource to help with the selecting of vendors for the big day. The weeks leading up to the wedding Christina was there to connect with the vendors to be sure that everything would run smoothly on the wedding day which was a huge help! On our actual wedding day Christina was absolutely incredible. She took care of everything. She kept the bridal party on track and everything ran SO smoothly. Christina also was our JP and wrote a lovely ceremony for my husband and I. I am so grateful for her help in the planning process as well as everything she did for us on our wedding day! You won鈥檛 regret using Christina for any of your planning or wedding day coordinating!

We worked with Christina on an event in 2010. The client hired her as a Day Of Coordinator. I have to say she was so professional and organized, you would think she helped the client through the whole planning process. She was easy to work with, flexible, and willing to help out and coordinate with all the other vendors.
