Since Celebrations of Love's very first wedding in the spring of 2010, the company has grown tremendously. In that time, I’ve designed, planned, and coordinated dozens of events, including weddings of all sizes and kinds. Each event has included personal touches and unique details customized to reflect the happy couple—meaning no two weddings are alike.

What sets Celebrations of Love apart is my ... commitment to my clients. I am dedicated to exceeding expectations and always going the extra mile, offering no limit to day-of hours and doing whatever is needed to execute an exceptional event.

Beyond weddings, I’ve also planned birthday parties, holiday celebrations, and bridal and baby showers. No matter what the special occasion, Celebrations of Love can help you turn moments into memories of a lifetime. Read less

Christine is spectacular!!! We are so lucky we got to meet with her and have her plan our special day. We knew right away that our wedding day was in good hands after we talked with Christine the first time. What we really appreciated about her, was that she took the time to get to know us and incorporate that into the planning process. She focused on making our wedding day both unique and special for us and it was the most amazing day of our lives. We feel like we also gained a friend. She is such a sweet person and truly enjoys her work- you can tell she is very passionate about what she does! During the planning, we moved out of state, and this was no obstacle for her to continue to connect with us and make sure that everything would be the way we wanted. She was very organized and detail oriented. We felt that she understood our vision and did everything she could to make our day everything we hoped it would be.. Her assistant Logan was also very friendly and helpful, and did a great job understanding our needs leading up to the big day. Together, they made sure our day went smoothly and we had nothing to worry about. We HIGHLY recommend Christine, there is NO one like her :)

There is a reason that all of the reviews for Christine include words like "flawless," "stress-free," and "amazing." I was living in North Carolina, my fiancé was living in Ohio, and our wedding was in my hometown of Kansas City. Christine was completely unfazed by the logistical challenge that this posed and made our wedding absolutely perfect. Christine is incredibly professional, timely, attentive, and ready for any hiccup that can occur. Whether it was last minute adjustments to a flower crown or reattaching a tuxedo button during photos, she came prepared for anything and everything and never stopped smiling. What I found most impressive about her is her extraordinary tact and her ability to handle all types of family members and guests. She is utterly unflappable in the face of emotional family members, lost luggage, and the general insanity of a wedding day and handles things in a firm, but gracious manner. She is also very creative and is not afraid to try new things. For example, my husband and I started dating in Italy, so we wanted to do a unique catering setup with food stations that allowed for a traditional multi-course Italian meal for 180 guests in a short amount of time. Christine found the perfect caterer (who was probably more excited than we were to try this setup), and the result was stunning! Our wedding went off without a hitch, and it is no exaggeration to say that we couldn't have done it without Celebrations of Love!

Securing Christine as our planner was absolutely the best decision my daughter and I made! From our very first meeting, Christine took the guess work and stress out of the planning process and guided us through every decision that needed to be made. She is incredibly organized and professional, yet is very warm and genuinely cares about helping you create your dream wedding, down to the finest detail. Christine is very calming and intuitive and she graciously eases tensions when differences arise. As a result of her experience and stellar reputation in the industry, she helped us select the perfect vendors and coordinated their efforts throughout the year of planning and until the last lights were turned off at the reception. She works tirelessly and cheerfully so you don't have to worry about anything, which meant we could enjoy all the weekend wedding events without worry. Family and guests said the wedding was "magical" and much credit for that goes to Christine. Christine is nothing short of amazing!

Christine was fantastic! My husband was skeptical about hiring a wedding planner. When he met Christine that all changed. With my daughter living in California and myself living in Kansas, Christine was a huge help to us. She handled everything flawlessly so that I was able to enjoy the wedding and reception knowing that everything was under control. I would highly recommend her!

Christine makes the wedding experience the most magical thing ever! We had a long planning process and her passion and excitement for our day continued to grow with ours! She has an amazing relationship with so many vendors of all price ranges across the Kansas City area. We felt that we had an incredible amount of options with vendors to help make our dreams become a reality. Christine has experience that can assist anyone, an immense passion for weddings/love/celebrations, ideas that can help special details shine on the big day, and AMAZING ORGANIZATIONAL SKILLS! She had our day organized down to the minute. All vendors were informed, prepared, and everything was flawless. She had a timeline prepared for the entire wedding party and families involved that were as detailed as they needed to be for each individual person. Christine really made the day/night so perfect and like everything we imagined. But, beyond the perfection of the times, vendors, organization, execution, and such of those details. She is so incredibly invested in each wedding that she participates in. She cares so much that we felt like we were working with a great friend that was just as excited about our love, marriage, and wedding day as we were. This feeling began from the day we met her and continued even past our wedding day. Our wedding day was truly the most perfect day/night and we owe so much of that perfection to Christine. I cannot imagine going through this process without Christine's assistance. I FULLY recommend Christine as well as Celebrations of Love to anyone wanting their wedding day to be the best day of your life and to be the most unbelievable planning experience possible!

Choosing to have a partial wedding planner the day of my wedding was the best decision I ever made….Choosing Christine as that wedding planner was the best choice I ever made!!! From the first time I called her to the day after my wedding, Christine was right on top of everything!!! If you’re looking for stress free wedding for your parents, your bridal party and especially the bride & Groom, then Christine is your girl!!! From the minute I met her I knew she would have everything under control and not a thing would go wrong….Even my vendors told me they loved working with such an organized and sweet wedding planner! Without Christine, I don’t know what would have happen….but I do, because I had Christine, my day was absolutely perfect!!! In the end, I not only hired the best wedding planner in KC, but I made a wonderful friend!!!

There are no words to describe how much my husband and I love Christine. She made our wedding day everything I had imagined, only way better. She was prepared for ANY situation - seriously - any situation, and made me feel like everything went just as planned. I've told everyone I know how amazing she is - and how she is worth every penny we spent to have her. She makes you feel like your wedding is the best she has ever done and that you are the most important person in the world. If I had to choose the best decision we made over the 5 months we were engaged, Christine would be it. Book her now!!!

If you want your Best Day Ever to be Amazing and Flawless, then you must hire Christine Darden/Saxer!!!!! The day I got engaged I called to hire Christine immediately! I have had other good friends and family members use her and they just love her! Every time we had our meetings she was very professional and always ready to go with an updated timeline on what needed to get done next! The Day of the Wedding you couldnt ask for a better woman to get the job done right! It was so stress free, she takes care of anything and everything! She always thinks of the little things, it rained on my wedding day and the next day she gave me a bedazzled rain jar with my wedding rain in it! Only Christine would think of that! You are silly not to hire her as your wedding planner!
We love Christine! Allison & Luke

Look no further! Whether you want her to plan a wedding or any party - Christine is the one you want! When I got engaged my mom wanted to get a wedding planner for help the day of considering she isn't from the Kansas City area. She wanted to relax and actually be able to enjoy the day. From the moment we met Christine we knew we wanted her to help us! She is so calm, sweet, and ORGANZIED! We got the partial plan and did so because of budget. Christine has very reasonable prices, but my budget for the wedding wasn't very large so I wanted to make sure to spread it out where it was absolutely necessary. I promise to you, no matter your budget, Christine will be worth every penny! She went way above and beyond our expectations. During the planning Christine was there every step of the way, she kept everyone calm and very organized. She will also be very attentive to what the bride wants, while still being pleasant and professional. When the wedding day came, everything went perfect - or at least that's all I know- which is how it should be for the bride. During the reception I had a little cousin that didn't catch the bouquet and she was so upset. I tried to console her, but nothing would work. Then out of nowhere, here comes Christine with the most beautiful little bouquet of flowers for the little girl. The way her face lit up was priceless!! My best advice - get Christine! Not only will she make sure your day or party goes absolutely perfect, she will also find ways to make the event even more memorable. She's the best in the Kansas City area.

When the wedding day came, everything went perfect - or at least that's all I know- which is how it should be for the bride. During the reception I had a little cousin that didn't catch the bouquet and she was so upset. I tried to console her, but nothing would work. Then out of nowhere, here comes Christine with the most beautiful little bouquet of flowers for the little girl. The way her face lit up was priceless!! My best advice - get Christine! Not only will she make sure your day or party goes absolutely perfect, she will also find ways to make the event even more memorable. She's the best in the Kansas City area. Read less

As the mother of the bride, I was stressing until I met Christine. She has a very calming effect and her organizational skills are out of this world! I had been through my son's wedding where I was sweating trying to get everyone ready before the ceremony. I promised I would not make that mistake again for my daughter's wedding. When we met Christine the first time, she was so sweet and took every detail we mentioned to heart. She truly cares about her clients and wants the best for them. From the planning period to the clean-up the day after the wedding, Christine was there making life easier for everyone. Not only will she make sure the event goes flawlessly, she did so many special touches that I will forever be thankful for. From making an extra boutonniere on the spot to taking special care of my daughter - Christine went way above and beyond and I couldn't be more thankful for her!
