hello

Hi, I am Kristan. I live in Livermore wine country with my husband, Paul, our dog Truffles, and out cat, Kahlua. I love our little wine country town and its wide-open spaces. Most (wedding free) weekends I can be found in downtown grabbing a bite to eat, having a glass of bubbly, walking Truffles, catching up with friends, and spending quality time with Paul.

Growing up I lived all summer long at the barn with my horse. I am slightly obsessed with unicorns. I am a foodie and have never been able to choose one favorite food (they are all so good). I am best known for being organized and prepared.

Kristan was just fabulous. We loved her personality and how she stayed calm under pressure. The wedding went flawlessly and was absolutely the best day of our lives. Hiring Kristan was one of the best decisions we made throughout the entire wedding planning process.

Kimberly & Jon

Kristan was such a lifesaver when my husband and I threw an intimate brunch for our family after our elopement. We are so grateful to her for taking the weight of planning off our shoulders and just letting us relax! This is what makes Kristan such a great planner – her attention to detail.

Kristan was on top of every detail, pricing and booking and coordinating all of the vendors for us. Our wedding went off beautifully, and many guests commented that it was the best wedding they had ever attended!

I felt at ease during my wedding I knew that Kristan had it all handled and I didn't have to worry about a thing. The wedding went flawless, Kristan did an amazing job working with my other vendors to produce a perfect wedding day. I am so thankful for her guidance and support through the entire process.

Core Values

browse core values

are the founding principles of my work. This business is my passion and uphold these principles above all others.

Honesty & Integrity

to love is to be human and to be human is to be unique yet equal. It is that simple. I pride myself on building relationships with vendors who believe the same. Together we will provide you with a wonderful, inclusive and supportive planning experience.

inclusivity

might be my superpowers. I thrive and delight in working out complex logistical challenges. I am uniquely able to see the big picture and the minutia and how one will affect the other. I gladly apply these talents to your event, so you don’t have to.

Logistics & details

if I had to declare a second super power this would be it. It might be a touch cliché to declare this, but it’s something I am known for (and I secretly pride myself on–shhh don’t tell anyone). You and your guests will be blissfully unaware of the quiet chaos going on behind the scenes.

Calm, Cool & Collected

Your vision and desires are my priority, and I am here to bring them to life. I will advocate for you and support you every step of the way, but especially in your stead on event day. You can relax and enjoy, knowing I have your back.

Advocacy

I am here to give you creative solutions, ideas, design elements, and problem solving, so that we can bring your vision and desires to life in a way that is unique to you.

Creativity

I am here to be your Partner in Planning. I believe in order to be your partner I need to be here for you in between our planning meetings. That is why I provide a booking link to schedule touch-base meetings to go over whatever you need to chat about. I have weekday, evening and weekend appointments available for you, no matter which service level you book.
