I hired Heald Wedding Consulting for my November 2016 destination wedding in Napa Valley, CA. Being in the hospitality industry for over 20 years and an event planner myself, I originally thought that I could handle all of the details myself. I quickly found that hiring an expert in the area was the absolute best decision I could have made. Cristina and her team provided 5 star service & delivery all around.
Cristina’s attention to detail and genuine concern to ensure everything ran smoothly was incredible. She really takes a lot of time to understand your "vision" and what's important to you - she also has incredible resources and vendor referrals. She is willing to work within any budget and has some great cost savings ideas. It was so helpful to have a single point of contact for all of the vendors. She continually stays on task and keeps you organized which in my case was imperative based on my busy schedule.
I was actually able to enjoy our wedding day since Cristina was behind the scenes taking care of all the details. Thank you so much to Cristina & her team, I will be forever grateful for all you did to make our day so special & memorable, I would not have been able to do it without her. Hire Cristina and her team, it will be the best decision you will make for your wedding!

Our situation was a little unique; we had already hired a month of planner for our wedding. About 2 months before the date they had to cancel for personal reasons. A friend referred us to Cristina Heald and she totally saved us! She quickly ramped up on our plans and starting talking with vendors right away. Even with a really short timeline she pulled together our ideas into a concrete plan that worked incredibly.

A little less than two weeks ahead of time it looked like we were going to get rain. Here she was a great resource, helping us get the coverings we needed and guiding us through replanning 2/3rds of our day (ceremony and cocktail hour was outside previously). She helped redo our layout and let us know what things would and wouldn't need to be tweaked because of the rain.

Day of Cristina was super on top of everything. She handled rearranging things to account for things we forgot (like the guestbook), sent people to the store to buy drink ingredients that were left at home so we could still serve them and I'm sure handled a million of problems that I never even knew existed. On top of all of that she escorted guests to and from the detached bathrooms with an umbrella the entire time it was raining.
We could not have come close to having the wedding we did without Cristina. Her help in planning and then replanning and managing the day was incredible. And she did all of it in less than 8 weeks. We absolutely recommend all of Heald Consulting.

Cristina was an amazing wedding guru. We hired her as our wedding coordinator and she blew us away. She went above and beyond, was there for every question I had and every little thing that I needed even before I knew that I needed it. People kept telling me that things always go wrong at weddings and that mine would be no different but I completely trusted her with everything and knew that she would make sure things ran smoothly. Cristina was professional and super-organized; the mini tasks she gave me during the planning process helped me become more organized myself. I loved how she went through each thing we had to do the day of the rehearsal and then prepped us again a couple of minutes before each one again on the actual day. Her calmness and sweet personality makes you feel as if you've known her forever. She was a dream to work with- I cannot say enough good things about her.

Cristina was absolutely amazing on our wedding day! We cannot say a single bad thing about her. We had her help out with the month of planning, but because she sent us spreadsheets months beforehand we could already start to pull everything together. There were no issues on our special day (or if there were she must have fixed them before we noticed!!!). Cristina was great because she didn't push any sort of style onto us, rather she asked us a million questions about what we wanted, which made us think about the aspects of our wedding that we hadn't even considered. She handled all of our vendors very firmly and professionally, and everyone was happy on our big day. Our day was exactly what we wanted, thank you so much Cristina! We have been recommending you to everyone we know!

Stop looking and hire Cristina--you won't regret it! I wasn't looking for someone to figure out every detail of my wedding--I had most of that under control. But I wanted someone to make sure everything had been accounted for and that nothing slipped through the cracks. After all, I've never done this before! Cristina is amazingly organized and kept us feeling like we had nothing to worry about. The day itself went flawlessly thanks to her. She has weddings down like it's second nature, yet was so willing to make any alteration we suggested. After seeing the quality and amount of service she provided for the cost, I would have gladly paid double--she was our single most valuable vendor! Cristina took the stress off our shoulders which allowed us to really enjoy the process of wedding planning. And on our big day, I did not have to put ANY thought into whether things were set up and running smoothly. Priceless!

Our Welcome Party/Rehearsal dinner was a great success thanks to Cristina! After researching and planning via the internet, phone, etc. I was concerned how to pull everything together for our event since we live in Florida, and the party was planned for a remote, idyllic barn amidst a vineyard in the hills of Napa, California. Through Cristina's knowledge, talent and contacts she put me in touch with a service team to help with the set up and execution, formulated a site plan, recommended vendors for linens, wine glasses, coolers, sound system and decor. She was helpful to anticipate the details to make our evening a great success. Her skill in coordinating the site set-up, catering and staffing needs was very professional and her advice was very helpful. Plus, she was a delight to talk to and work with on such an important event for our family. Everyone had a wonderful time!

Cristina was wonderful! We were planning our wedding remotely so she was a huge help in scheduling meetings with us when we were in town for planning weekends and just making sure the whole process went smoothly! Our weekly calls with her in the four weeks leading up to the wedding were so helpful to make sure everything was taken care of and we weren't forgetting any little details! Day of the wedding she was also key in making sure the day ran smoothly. Our wedding was outdoors and we'd hired someone to make a chalkboard seating chart of all of the tables with guests names, table numbers etc. Well during the ceremony the wind knocked over the board and broke it! Without our even knowing Cristina scrambled and re-wrote the entire seating chart so our guests would know which tables they were assigned to! So impressive! We couldn't have pulled off our fabulous day without Cristina!

Cristina and her team were AMAZING. My husband and I were unsure about our need to hire a wedding coordinator or planner as I am extremely organized and a bit of a "control enthusiast" ;). Because our wedding was out of state and we were not very familiar with the area, we decided to hire someone to help. I interviewed countless people and ultimately decided to hire Cristina. She was friendly, organized, prompt at responding to emails, and so helpful when it came to us selecting vendors. No matter how small my questions were, or how often, she always responded quickly and with great information. The weekend of our wedding, she ran the show. We loved it, our bridal party loved it, and our parents loved it. She came organized and prepared, led us through the rehearsal seamlessly, and kept everyone on task. I really appreciated not having to do this part and just being able to enjoy the weekend. It helped to have a third party who was in charge do all of the leading instead of us or our family. The day of the wedding, she was phenomenal. She kept everyone on time, managed all of my vendors, kept me calm, and literally made sure that everything ran seamlessly. If something went wrong, I am still unaware of it, hahaha. I also have to thank her for letting me take the reins when I wanted and taking the control back when I got overwhelmed. She really knows how to balance what her clients are looking for and work with many different personalities. I also really appreciated her ability to see my vision for the day and work with me to make it a reality. I can not thank her and her staff enough for making our wedding the most enjoyable and stress-free weekend imaginable and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding coordinator or planner. If I had to go back and do it again, I would definitely call her first!

There are not enough exclamation points in the world for how amazing Cristina is. Where to even begin? It was clear even at our initial meeting how professional, organized, and caring she is. My idea of a big event is dinner for 10 (yikes!) and I was completely out of my depth starting to plan a wedding for 150--on the opposite side of the country from my family and in the middle of medical residency, no less. I was, to say the least, pretty clueless. Cristina made everything feel simple, in control, and dare I say...exciting!

Awesome things about Cristina: Her breadth of experience helped me in decisions ranging from vendor selection to setting the wedding day timeline. She is extremely flexible, in everything from arranging meetings to finding ways to accommodate the last minute guests. We had a Jewish wedding with many traditional elements, and Cristina was not only familiar with the proceedings but helped me strategize how best to organize those less well-known portions. It was a big perk to have access to her nifty inventory of decorations, as well--Cristina made an awesome champagne tower display for us, not to mention a beautiful, beautiful Chuppah (wedding canopy) and several other decorations. Cristina helped me with budget and cost decisions, always offering a variety of ways to do something and how to save. She juggled our family dynamics smoothly and gracefully. She was very effective in working with our government-run venue, which was physically lovely but had all kinds of arcane and restrictive rules and less-than-helpful staff. She is a resourceful problem-solver, weathering at least two rental fiascos and quickly offering solid solutions. I was really able to enjoy the wedding because of her.

I could go on!! Suffice it to say, Cristina's services are an amazing value, she runs a great team, is a delight to interact with, and I'd recommend to her to any friend or family!!!!

We were blown away by Christina Heald and her expert planning services. She was so friendly, and attentive. She had worked our venue before and knew what worked and what didnt. She was always willing to provide her opinion and tell you her thoughts on your ideas. I am not a creative person, and she was able to bring it all together. Our day was beyond beautiful and perfect! She was always available and responsive to my endless questions. She referred vendors when we asked and she always hit the mark with them. The one time I strayed (hair and makeup), I wish I had listened to her. She really knows what she is doing, and other vendors love working with her. Hands down, I dont know what I would have done without Christina. She is AMAZING, and well worth it! Cant wait to have another big event...she will be the first person I call to plan!
