" Hi, my name is Christi!'
I'm a person who loves coffee, music, movies and thinks SCI-FI is brilliant... I enjoy working with people on the important moments and days of their lives.
Yes, I have the knowledge and experience of the Ins & Outs of all kinds of events (Weddings, Birthdays, Anniversaries, Fundraising, Product Launches, and numerous others). But, "Planning a Wedding", is possibly the most difficult task anyone encounters in their personal life! I am here to help!
First, I'm the stage manager, working behind the scenes in any event. My clients are the "Star(s) of the Show!"
As your Designer & Planner, I will work with you through the planning process. My job is to put together the team of experts to properly execute and deliver what you want.
Second, my job is being the person who comes prepared on the big day for any and every catastrophe that could go wrong. My actual job could begin anywhere from 18 months or less, prior to your big day with building your schedules, lists, color-coded systems and creating a proactive plan for eliminating, avoiding and solving problems before they even happen.
My clients can show you the worksheets in their binders to prove this if you have doubts.
When you meet with a coordinator you are putting your faith in someone to care just as much about your wedding or event as you do. With weddings, You are “hiring” a best friend to gossip with about sappy details, someone to listen to you gush over your fiancé, a crafty person to make your visions tangible, a teammate to go to bat for you when your partner or parents seem to be against the ENTIRE wedding, or think you’re “doing it all wrong,” a referee when we have the “parent/teacher conference,” an educator on etiquette and tact, a shadow for the big day, and a pocket to keep all your random thoughts, notes, appointments and even lip gloss. You are hiring someone you trust to be there, and will not drop the ball on your biggest day ever.
Once all of the planning has been done, and you have turned your binder over to me, its game day!
Additional Booking Notes
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
1. A prospective Client usually contacts me by sending a text, an email and/or makes a telephone call.
2. I provide times for a call or meeting to get started with the client. I recommend a 1.) 10-minute phone call, 2.) a 30-minute onsite visit, or a 3.) 30-minute in-person consult, to discuss many of the logistics for your event. But, this no ordinary meeting! We are interviewing each other for the partnership we are about to undertake. Then, at the end of that meeting, we confirm if we are interested in working with each other.
3. If it is agreed upon, an agreement (Includes: Service Contract & Non-Refundable Deposit) is necessary before any work can be performed. We make a preliminary schedule for our face-to-face meetings, and/or another form of communication via email, Connecting via Skype, Facebook Chat, or making telephone calls.
4. Next, we create the schedule of details, timelines, creative partner selections, payment arrangements, etc.
