    Friendly, helpful & great eye for detail

    I’m so glad we chose to hire Christie to be a part of our very small elopement. She really made it feel like more of an event rather than a quick marriage and it’s over!

    The main compliment I have for Christie is for really nailing it on the decor. We eloped by the river in a tree filled area and she really made the space pop. She goes above and beyond to give you the day you deeply desire. She even managed to get us a bagpiper which was really special to me (I had originally booked someone for our bigger wedding but had kind of given up on that idea for our new plans). We had a few minor hiccups throughout the event, although I feel this is expected for any event, these things become a learning experience.

    It was a relief to have Christie deal with all the finer details like finding vendors etc. This took a lot of time and pressure off of us, we were then able to swoop in and make our final decisions. Christie is very open and flexible, she encourages you to be as involved as you like throughout the process.

    You can really tell how passionate Christie is about her business & what she does. I am excited to see how much her business excels as she grows & develops.

    EXCELLENT. Thank you Christie for a romantic picnic with my Wife.

    Christie from 4Ever Yours completely blew me and my wife away with her creativity and beautiful set up. I inquired about a surprise birthday picnic for my wife.

    She completely tailored it to how I imagined it, made she we got her favorite foods, and desserts, and bubbly. She even showed me photo's of what I could expect. Her décor and staging is TOP NOTCH. We even brought our 11 month old to come and play in the little tent she had set up!

    I would definitely recommend her services for any small to big events where you just want peace of mind. Easy communication throughout the process, and very fair pricing.

    Thank you Christie for an unforgettable experience!

    Worth every cent!

    Christie was so great to have in my corner on my wedding day! I hired her specifically for set up and tear down, but also wanted to hand off the responsibility prior to my guests arriving from out of town so I had her as my week of coordinator. She is clearly very experienced in events and my venue contanct, emcee and usher had exceptional things to say about her. It was calling for rain and throughout all the stress of will it or won;t it, Christie was fantastic!!! Would absolutely encourage all brides to hire her.
    I didn't give a perfect rating because there were two small moments when she was a bit late, likely due to traffic and it did not affect the outcome at all, but I think it's important to have some constructive feedback.

    Ready to go with anything and thought of everything

    Christie thought about absolutely everything! She has many years of experience with other planning companies but just recently decided to start her own wedding planning business. When I was planning my wedding, I was not sure if I really needed a wedding day coordinator but I am very glad I decided to hire Christie. She made sure everything ran smoothly and on time. I'm sure there were things that went wrong, but as far I a know, the day went perfect! There was a particular time where my new brother-in-law accidentally spilled a whole drink on my dress just after the reception happened. Within seconds Christie rushed towards me with her emergency kit with things for this very situation, and once I was all cleaned up, no one could tell anything happened. I am very happy with Christie and I would definitely recommend her for a wedding planner/coordinator.

    Best choice ever!

    Where to start? Christie was very bubbly, personable and made my day go smoothly. We hired her for our day of coordinator for our August 2020 wedding. She was always on time for meetings and made sure to make everything go as planned the day of. Our venue manager was difficult to work with but Christie kept a smile on her face and did all the little extra duties that the venue manager was supposed to. All in all, she went above and beyond her role. If you are looking for your special day to go perfectly, look no further. Thanks Christie!
