planner/coordinator throughout the entire wedding planning process because it was a destination wedding, and we starting to feel in over our heads. We had already planned basically all of the details of my wedding and booked most vendors, but if you've ever planned a wedding, you know how many vendors/details/conversations you're trying to keep track of all at once, never mind ensuring it all goes well day of. Especially if you're like me, and have never planned a wedding before and are the very first wedding in your family for over 20 years (oldest grandchild here)! Finally, my mom convinced me and offered to hire a professional to ensure all of our hard work and vision came to life. Even though we hired Christine for "day of" she did so much PRIOR to the wedding. Christine created our wedding timeline, answered questions, made recommendations, coordinated with all of our vendors to ensure timing and contracted services were accurate, and of course she was there by my side day of making sure everything around me was running smoothly so my husband and I could enjoy our wedding with all of our favorite people. She set up everything and packed up at the end of the night. She thought of a lot of things that I never even thought to ask or think of and I really don't know how the day would have turned out if we didn't have her. Guests are still talking about what an incredible wedding it was! If you are debating whether to book Christine or not, JUST DO IT! You will have an amazing wedding. Thanks for everything, Christine!

I found Christine about three months before wedding -- and boy, am I glad I found her. Trying to keep straight all of the things that would make our wedding not only go smoothly but also make it *enjoyable* was causing me anxiety! Christine pro...
vided immediate relief to that stress -- seriously, simply talking to her on the phone during our initial meeting put me at ease because she was incredibly thorough.
Christine ran through a laundry list of questions about our wedding plans -- some things we had already decided and some we hadn't even thought of. That's exactly the kind of person you want as your coordinator -- someone who thinks of *everything.* That's Christine.
Christine is meticulously organized, laser-focused, and incredibly responsive. The comprehensive event file she created for our wedding put all the many, various details of our wedding in one place and made them digestible -- for us and our vendors (who she communicated to and chased down when necessary)!
And on our wedding day, Christine was a force to be reckoned with. We somehow managed to get married on one of the windiest, coldest days in Florida, and when our photographers had to change our photo plan on a fly to accomodate the weather, we shot Christine a text to get the rest of the bridal party where we were -- and she did it!
She covered countless other big and small, incredibly important logistics throughout the entire process, and if I could do anything differently, I would hire her for her full wedding planning services rather than just day-of coordination, because it would've given me so much more peace of mind earlier on!

She responds to emails and texts very promptly and gives excellent input on every aspect of the planning process. Every single vendor she recommended was above and beyond wonderful. She has many contacts in the industry and it is apparent that she is very well respected by these vendors. Most importantly, I felt calm and present in the days leading up to our wedding, and on our wedding day. Christine handled everything with such professionalism, and at the same time radiated joy in sharing our special day with us. All of our vendors RAVED about Christine, my family were complimenting her all day (still are), and even my somewhat (initially) skeptical husband could not stop complimenting her work. Overall, I felt supported, present, calm, and was able to soak in the most perfect day because of Christine's hard work and passion for what she does. I would hire her again and again if I could!!!

I am so grateful that I hired Christine to serve as my day-of coordinator, she truly saved the day! From the beginning of our communications and our first consultation, I was incredibly impressed with Christine's organization and responsiveness...
. Christine kept me organized through her commitment to making the flow of your wedding day perfect, and she doesn't miss a beat from the beginning to the end. You need Christine to keep you organized!
Christine did an incredible job of making sure I enjoyed my wedding, without involving me in any minor or major issues that arose. We were gifted with a Director of Catering that spent the better part of 9 months finding issues with what I wanted, and one day out managed to find an issue with the main focal point and religious element of our ceremony. Christine was relaxed, and proactive. Additionally, within one hour of our ceremony, our Director of Catering started to strongly express concerns regarding the weather, and Christine managed her effortlessly without involving me. You need Christine to problem-solve for you.
Thank you, Christine. You made my wedding day so great!

Christine is wonderful in every sense of the word. The day of my sister's wedding, our family was a mess of emotion and adrenaline and every type of feeling you can imagine. Our main priority and focus was my sister (and her future husband)...a...
nd so, was Christine's. She made sure that all the big AND little details were taken care of so that we could focus on the most important parts of the day - family and the love that we all share. She is so detail oriented and pays close attention to the small things that make all the difference. We had full confidence that Christine had all the details under control and she helped to put our minds at ease, as we knew we were in good hands. Why add the stress of planning your own logistics when you can hire a professional to do it in half the time, twice as good? To me, it's a no-brainer to hire a wedding planner; and if you're looking for a seamless planning experience, including the big day itself, I believe Christine is the obvious choice. Thank you, Christine, for providing our family, and my sister, with an absolutely unforgettable day. We could not have pulled it off without you!!

I really cannot say enough good things about Christine!
I originally found Christine for day of coordination, but after discussing my visions with her she ended up doing our floral decor as well. I told Christine right from the beginning that ...
I wanted a simple, yet specific look. Christine and her husband literally brought my Pinterest dreams to life! She was conscious of our budget, but really worked to still give me everything I wanted! This is not usually the case in the wedding industry, so to find this in Christine was such a blessing! She went above and beyond!
In terms of coordinating, Christine is definitely your girl! She is unbelievably organized and on top of everything. Even though we just hired her for day of coordination, she was supportive months prior to the wedding always responding immediately to any questions and ideas that i had! She worked incredibly well with all of our vendors, who honestly raved about her during and after the wedding. There were very few hiccups throughout our wedding process, thanks to Christine, but anything that did come up was taken care of with ease.
You cannot go wrong with Olive and Ivory Event Design. Christine is truly one of the most genuine people who really cares about the brides (and grooms) she works with. Her and her husband make an incredible team in terms of both floral design and coordination!

My mom and I pretty much planned all the details of my wedding; however, we were seeking an "insurance policy" and someone that would coordinate everything and carryout all the details we had planned and ensure everything we had contracted for actually happened. Christine created my timeline for the vendors and wedding day and was at the venue for over 12 hours on the day of. She set up everything and supervised all my vendors and she packed up at the end of the night. She is smart and quick and very detailed oriented. She though of a lot of things that I never even thought to ask or think of. On the day of she was an asset, anything I needed anything she was there ready for me.
