Christina joined the Emily Weddings team in April of 2010, and has sincerely loved every minute of it.
She graduated from Old Dominion University in 2005 with a major in Psychology and a minor in Sociology. The knowledge she gained in these areas of study have truly helped in understanding the different types of people and families and cultures she comes across when working on a variety of weddings.
Christina is a “girly girl” in every way and has been obsessed with all things wedding for as long as she can remember. “My DVR is constantly overflowing with wedding shows. It sometimes takes me months to catch up, but I record everything because I don’t want to miss anything that has to do with weddings!”
She is very organized and loves making sure all of the details are in place for the bride’s special day. “It is such a rush to see the months of time and preparation come together and make our bride’s dreams come true.”
Christina was so excited when she got the opportunity to meet with Emily and begin working in the field she loves. When she got engaged in June of 2010, it only heightened her interest in planning and coordinating all of the details that go into a beautiful event. Christina had the opportunity to be the lead coordinator for a fellow Emily Weddings team member in November of 2010, and was lucky enough to have her fellow team members coordinate her own wedding just this past September 2011!
From the flowers to the linens to the wedding dress itself, Christina loves everything that goes into a wedding, and it is absolutely a pleasure for her to work in such a fun environment, with such great people!
Q & A with Christina:
What is your favorite part of a wedding?
"My favorite part of a wedding is absolutely when the bride and groom see each other for the first time. Whether it is a “first look” or its as the bride is coming down the aisle to meet her groom, watching the looks on their faces always puts a smile on my face and tears in my eyes."
What is your favorite season for a wedding?
"My favorite season for a wedding is in the fall. The temperature is mild, the leaves are beautiful, and you can dance outside all night without breaking a sweat. Just make sure you always have a backup plan in case of rain!!!"
What is your favorite bouquet flower?
"My favorite flower is hydrangea. They come in such beautiful colors, and they are classic and beautiful, but also big and bold enough to make a statement. I used hydrangea in my wedding centerpieces and bouquets and they looked absolutely stunning."
