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!

Patient, kind, generous, funny and ingenious are a few of the things we want to say about her :) My husband said he thinks she has ESP. Thank you Cristina!!!

When I began my planning process for our wedding, I thought that because I was an excellent multitasker, I wouldn't need a wedding planner. I thought, wedding planners existed for people who A) didn't know what they were doing, B) were bad at goal and/or time management, and C) for people with loads of disposable income/large wedding budgets. Because of this I thought i was one who didn't need/want a wedding coordinator. One bleak day, I cried to my then fiancé, that i felt like a failure because I realized I needed help. That's when I found Cristina Heald.

Our first call was more of a counseling session, as Cristina meticulously noted everything. After talking i felt so relieved and i told her I was going to talk with my fiancé and get back to her. After telling my guy about how much better I felt knowing there was someone who could take my stress down and actually let me sleep, he agreed it was a good choice and we signed up.

Pretty much everything that could go wrong in the processes did, but after each crisis, I'd turn to Cristina. 100% of the time she had a solution, and a centering reminder that all of this would be successful. She was right, up to and through the I Do's.

Through it all, Cristina was right; everything was perfect. I was impressed with her efficiency, anticipation of my stress, swift action to quell issues, and independent interactions with bridal party, vendors, and guests.

Even if you are an expert at events, a pro at parties, or a diva at decorating, Cristina is better, faster, and more experienced. It shows in her passion for perfection and her true craft in her art of planning and coordinating. I can say without a doubt that besides saying yes to the man of my dreams, saying yes to Cristina is one of my best wedding decisions I made.

I wish there was a 6/5 star option. I can't say enough good things about Cristina. She is at once personal, professional, calm and detail-oriented. Cristina knows just how to keep things running smoothly, delights everyone and has a wonderful sense of humor.

My husband and I marveled at the way she seemed to be everywhere at once, popping up like a genie when needed and then melting into the background to check on another detail. She doesn't miss a single thing, thinks of event logistics that would be so easy to regretfully overlook and has an incredible roster of preferred vendors.

We planned our wedding in Santa Rosa from Portland, Oregon. Cristina was so helpful in filling in the details for what we could not physically see or vendors we could not visit. Our cake, florist, hair/make-up artist and DJ were all her preferred vendors, all offered wonderful value for their price points and were just amazing in their own rights!

Cristina has wonderful advice and thoughts for the ceremony and reception flow, if needed (and I certainly needed all the help I could get!), but doesn't offer her opinion or advice unless requested. On a final note, my husband and I are not stuffy people and enjoy the company of those who can laugh, who add a personal touch and take joy in life and their work. Cristina IS that person. She is the consummate professional, yet in working with her, I felt so comfortable because she genuinely cares for her clients.

To not work with Cristina would be such a missed opportunity. She's amazing. Period.

Your planner will be a huge part of your wedding, including the memories & feelings you associate with the journey. I’m eternally grateful that Cristina will forever be a part of my special day.
My fiance & I contacted Cristina when we were feeling overwhelmed by the logistical nightmare that is planning a wedding. I was on my way to resenting the whole situation and was no longer excited about the big day.
Unlike most women, I didn't grow up fantasizing about my wedding. Like most women, however, I wanted my wedding to be an amazing experience for everyone. I wanted intimate, yet grand; personal & fun; spirited & touching. My wedding was that and more, entirely because of Cristina.
Cristina's attention to detail is unparalleled. As a first-time bride, I was unaware of all the details & choices to consider. Cristina coached me through it all and thought of everything!
Her contributions to my wedding were remarkable. She organized countless details, saving us money and time. She managed vendors & needy family members & annoying guests & unresponsive venues. Most importantly, Cristina gave me the freedom to love the process. Until her involvement, I didn't have the ability to concentrate on anything fun because I was all-consumed with logistics. With her help, I focused on things that I enjoyed - decorating, designing, etc.
On the day of my wedding, I was able to live in the moment and to make memories that I’ll cherish forever. This was only possible because of Cristina. Her work ethic is beyond compare and she earns the respect of everyone she does business with. I should also note that Cristina's professionalism is only matched by her kind personality & lovely demeanor.
A wedding is too much for any woman to organize & navigate without professional help. Just accept that. So...if you don't have a team of experienced interns planning every detail, HIRE CRISTINA!
(even if you have interns, hire Cristina and send them for coffee)

I really appreciated Cristina's organization & knowledge. I originally didn't think I needed a coordinator, but since our venue not only required a day-of coordinator, they required us to pick from an approved list. At our venue there were only 3 to choose from, & when everyone at the venue found out Cristina would be helping out they were all enthusiastic with their praises for her. I had obviously picked the favorite of that approved list lol. As the wedding got closer I realized that there was a lot of extra work that I technically could do myself, but was glad to not have to deal with. There's already so much chaos & stress when planning your own wedding, that you're really doing yourself a favor in letting somebody else make sure everything is going to plan on your big day.
