Thank you so much Christina for being our wedding fairy. We planned our wedding long distance from Kazakhstan. So it wasn't so easy because of the time difference and language. But Christina is absolutely amazing and very professional. We felt very confident in her services and... Read More absolutely had no stress. So our wedding day went through smoothly. I can say that I had my dream wedding! If you want your dream wedding comes true, I highly recommend Christina and Whitney Events for wedding planning services.

One of the factors that differentiated Christina from other month-of planners was she reviewed all of our vendor contracts at the very beginning of the process. Not only did she end up saving us a lot of money by catching discrepancies between our catering and venue, but she and... Read More her team were totally aware of where we stood and could make pointed suggestions to fill our remaining gaps. They didn't just show up a month out and say...ok debrief me...like I'd seen with many of my friends who hired month-of planners. We also hugely appreciated that she attended our venue walkthrough and florist meeting which were earlier in the summer so she/the team were on the same page as us. Again, all of our vendors commented how on top of the details and responsive Christina was. Huge thanks from my husband and I.

Christina is absolutely amazing. I planned my wedding long distance (from Boston) and I could not have done it without her help. First of all, her personality and can do attitude is contagious and makes every wedding planning "hiccup" seem like nothing. I loved her... Read More meticulousness and organization- which allowed me to focus on finishing studying for my board exam while knowing that the planning was getting taken care of. She was super understanding of my time constraints given my crazy work schedule. She helped us plan the most amazing wedding. From advice about the decor, lighting, flowers, she was candid and offered much needed advice. She has vendors that she recommends because of her experience with them, but is not pushy to try to get you to sign a contract w them. I owe her my sanity for everything that she did during the week of the wedding. She coordinated all of the vendors the few days before the weeding. The schedule she created (and dispersed to everyone) allowed us to relax and enjoy the wedding and not worry about timelines and organization. I felt incredibly confident in her services. I would book her again, and again. She is fantastic. Do not hesitate.

I wanted to write this review to possibly help those of you about to get married as working with Christina and Whitney Events was an absolute pleasure. My wife and I basically turned our wedding over to Christina with about a month to go and were able to really enjoy that time... Read More while she handled all of the logistics. The wedding day itself went incredibly smoothly as she handled all of the various issues that presented themselves so we could truly enjoy our day. She is a real professional and ran the show from start to finish. We had some issues post wedding as well on the billing front and she didn't shy away from those either. Full service! To truly enjoy your wedding and the time leading up to it, make your lives easier and get Christina on board!

Christina is my new best friend!!! :))) Okay in all seriousness, she's the best planner anyone can ask for, in my own humble opinion. Initially, I was planning on hiring a Day Of Coordinator, but given that our wedding timeline was pretty short (we got engaged in December and... Read More wanted to get married only a few months later, in July), I figured it would be best to hire her as a partial planner. I would've definitely hired her as a full planner but since we already had the venue picked out and I had already bought my dress, a partial planner made more sense in this case. She didn't feel like a partial planner though, not at all. She felt like she was my own personal planner and best friend, as if she didn't have anyone else's wedding to plan but mine :) That's not true of course lol but that's how special she made me feel, like I was the most important bride. Christina is truly amazing. She is super professional, soooo organized and on top of things, and she made my life so much easier since I'm super organized myself and have OCD tendencies since I have different lists for everything in my life! Lol. I feel like we definitely complimented each other since we both communicated in list-form all the time :) which I can tell was heaven for both of us! Haha. I'm honestly so grateful to have found her. She always provided the best advice throughout the whole process and I always trusted her judgement. She has a very positive attitude, was always calm and collected, and always had a solution for everything. She even went along with all my quirky and wacky ideas for the wedding too! :) I really recommend hiring Whitney Events to plan your wedding as Christina and her assistant Jen are the absolute best!!!

Christina was a pleasure to work with and I cannot recommend her enough! We hired her as a "day of coordinator," but her work exceeded far beyond "day of." From the moment we hired Christina, she was easily available via email and phone to answer any questions or concerns we had... Read More during the planning phase. She helped us select our rentals (and double-checked everything to make sure we ordered exactly what we needed!), came up with an extremely detailed day-of timeline, made sure we had our ideal floorplan, and coordinated all timing and logistics with our vendors as we approached our wedding. Christina is always one step ahead and thinks of every little detail to ensure the day will run smoothly. She has so much patience and will go above and beyond to make sure you're happy. I honestly don't know how we would have managed without her!

We used Whitney Events to plan my daughter's wedding in May and could not be happier with this company! She is not only a lovely person, nut extremely well organized and knew how to take charge on the day of the event. Since I live in LA and the wedding was in Nyc, having a...

I'm so grateful to have worked with Christina and her assistant Jen on my wedding, they are a dream team! I worked with Christina as a partial/day of planner, and she provided sound advice and guidance every step of the way. What I appreciated most was the team's creativity... Read More and flexibility to help execute my wedding theme, which was a Broadway, theater style wedding. Christina was filled with great ideas, such as "ticket" style escort cards, Playbill wedding programs, Act signs on every floor of the venue guiding guests where to go and letting them know what came next in the evening, and a Popcorn bar for intermission. Jen is an amazing pastry chef, and was able to supply Broadway themed cupcakes for guests to take home as a favor, and she was even able to make them gluten free for myself and guests who have severe gluten allergies. They were adorable and delicious! Numerous guests commented on how unique the wedding theme was and how well it was executed throughout the evening. Overall, this team is professional, extremely accommodating, and flexible if last minute changes/drama comes up, and incredibly organized. As the wedding flew by, I was well aware of how stress free the day felt, and how one event seemed to flow effortlessly in to the next. I credit this entirely to Christina for coordinating with all the vendors well in advance, and creating an organized day of timeline. Also, on a more personal note, both Christina and Jen are incredible warm and friendly, and I feel throughout this process they became not only my advisers, but also friends. I look forward to continuing our friendship, and would highly recommend their services to anyone planning a special event. Seriously, run don't walk to work with this team.

Our wedding day was literally PERFECT even though we only had TWO months to plan AND we live out of state from our venue. And it was all because of Whitney Events!!! When we started looking for planners, all of them came off as hasty, rushed, and frantic when we told them what... Read More we had in mind for our wedding and the fact that is was only two short months away. We were already freaking out because our wedding date was so soon, so if our planner was doubtful and frantic, it would not make the process any easier. However, when we got our consultation with Christina, the owner of Whitney Events, she was professional and more importantly, very confident that our dream wedding could be done in two months time. This put our mind at rest and a little more at ease. My husband and I have very demanding jobs so sometimes we weren't able to respond to wedding emails or complete a wedding task until days later. Even with a tight deadline, she was never pushy or overbearing and handled everything we couldn't do ourselves. She was very flexible with our schedules and communicated with us frequently to make sure we were on track. She went out of her way to pick up packages, get our marriage certificate, and deliver our wedding items to us just days leading up to our wedding. The day of our wedding Christina and her assistant coordinated the event. Every aspect of that day was perfect and went sooo smoothly. We didn't have to worry about anything that day, she was taking care of everything for us. Even our bridal party all commented how she was very on top of it!! Aside from just the wedding planning, we also needed help planning our rehearsal dinner, after party,, and the Korean ceremony. Keep in mind we didn't even have a location booked or had any idea where we wanted to host any of those events. Yet with such ease she was able coordinate and execute each of those events. Mind you we were extremely stressed the entire two months (but what couple isn't when wedding planning?) and several times I doubted if everything would be done by the wedding day, but because of Christina, our wedding and all of our other wedding events were perfect. I think of all the wedding related things we spend on, hiring Christina to be our wedding planner was the best money ever spent (speaking budget-wise, their prices are worth for all the services you will receive). Go with Whitney Events! Thank you so much Christina!!!!!

Everything went so smoothly- transportation was perfectly timed, church was ready (despite a scheduling problem that was beyond our control- Christina took care of it), band was well informed/knew the run of show, reception was set up beautifully, schedule flowed as planned, families kept in tow, the list goes on and on- my husband and I were able to truly sit back and ENJOY our own wedding, rather than running the show/worrying about details. Christina told us she was on it and she truly was. We'd highly recommend her services! Thanks Christina!
