Christie grew up on the west coast near Portland, Oregon. After graduating from the University of Arizona in 2003, she moved to Virginia with her college sweetheart. In 2005 she planned her own amazing wedding in the beautiful countryside of Warrenton, Virginia. During the planning process she found herself constantly asking the question, “Why Not?” She had all these fabulous ideas and dreams for her big day but was always being told it wasn’t possible or it just wouldn’t work.
Being the persistent girl she is, Christie wouldn’t take no for an answer and found a way to make every detail of her dream wedding become a reality. From that point on, she realized that planning and organizing events came naturally to her. After attending Christie’s wedding, family and friends continued to ask for her help and advice for their own weddings and parties. After numerous events, she decided to start her own company so that she could help even more people find the answers to their “why not?”.
“ I am IMPRESSED by the job Christie performed during the Wedding in a Week event. I cannot even imagine how much pressure she was under, however she kept her poise and ushered the vendors and bridal party through the day with great success. She should feel very accomplished and Christie certainly deserves many accolades! If she can pull off a successful wedding with only a week of planning, just imagine what she can craft with many months of notice-- Brilliance!! ” –Chrysis Entertainment
