EVENT PLANNING

WHAT A PLANNER CAN DO FOR YOU

Event planning is a lot of work. Whether you realized that when you started or not, there's a chance you could be biting off more than you can chew. Your event is supposed to be fun, not stressful, and if you are stressing about floor plans and vendor coordination and timeline management among all the other things that come along with planning, you might lose sight of the bigger picture -- having an amazing time.

Even if you are the most detail-oriented, DIY kind of person, you could still benefit from hiring an event planner to take some of the stress off of your shoulders.

Kristina K.
Event Planning Director

Kristina first started working in the planning industry as a day of coordinator, mainly working weddings and big birthday celebrations. She later moved to planning corporate events.

Her love for traveling has helped her develop a keen sense of planning and organization. She began traveling at the young age of 4.5 and has since visited over 35 countries (and counting!).

Having been exposed to so many cultures has allowed her to experience a variety of traditions, foods, and people! This has helped her develop a keen and creative eye…which has helped time after time with her clients events. Attention to detail, a creative vision, and a warm personality has made her served her well in her planning career.

Kristina was born in Belarus, is fluent in Russian, and is a graduate of California State University of Northridge where she studied Tourism, Recreation, & Hospitality Management.

“I love helping people, the satisfaction of knowing I made their event all that it can be is what I find to be most rewarding. Knowing that what I do can make all the difference in someone’s day is what drives me to always make sure I do whatever I can to make my clients happy. Being able to change a stressful moment into a moment of gratitude is what I live for.

I have fixed a bride’s hair just moments before walking down the aisle. She ran into me at another wedding I was working and thanked me for how I handled the situation on her wedding day. Next thing I knew, I had tears of joy fill my eyes. It’s moments like these that make taking the stress off your hands worth it.

Being an event planner sounds like the most glamorous job, and at times it can be, but I have given up a pair of socks for a client who forgot theirs, decorated cakes florists forgot to leave floral for, and you can count on me to go above and beyond for your special day too, because THAT is what a great event planner does.”
