Highly recommend!!

Christie is such a beautiful soul and an awesome wedding planner! After just one video consultation that turned into almost a two hour long chat, I felt like we were friends. She is bubbly, outgoing, easy to get along with, very flexible and just the sweetest person. She is not afraid to negotiate with a vendor or ask hard questions in a professional manner to help us get exactly what we wanted - she is able to do all of this while still maintaining great relationships with all the vendors. She is very organized, such a go getter and really does go above and beyond. She genuinely cared about our vision and truly wanted the best for us. We are so thankful for everything she has done for us and hope to keep in touch! We look forward to working with her again for future life events. We highly recommend Christie to anyone needing help to plan their wedding - she has truly found her calling as a wedding and event planner!

Saved the day!

I'm a pretty organized person, and I truly didn't think I would need a wedding planner/day-of coordinator, but I am SO glad I worked with Christie to ensure my wedding day was seamless. Christie truly saved the day by taking all the stress off my shoulders when a torrential downpour started right before my (outdoor) ceremony. Chrisite sprung into action and make all the right calls to switch up the location to our indoor back-up. It was amazing to not have to be the one to think about doing any of that, or to put that burden on any of my family members on such a fun day.
Christie also had a kit full of important supplies which came in handly when my husband got a cut on his hand while we were doing portraits and bled all over my dress 🙃 Luckily Christie was there to save the day. She knew exactly what would get the blood out - and it worked!
They say no wedding day ever goes 100% to plan, and that's exactly why you should hire Christie.

Spectacular!!

Christie was an absolute delight to work with! She is pleasant and sweet and was so prepared all throughout the process! She had prepared a ton of stuff that I hadn't even thought of and took so much stress off of my shoulders the day of. Hoping to work with her again someday!

Kind and laid back

If you are looking for a day-of coordinator who is kind and caring to your guests, Christie is just that. She has good correspondence and was supportive with tips about our big day. I recommend making sure that there is an assistant who comes with Christie, as more hands on deck are better! Also before your big day, make sure to ask her what tasks need to be delegated out to your friends and family. This will help make sure your big day goes smoothly.

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!

Excellent DOC, attention to details, and went out of her way for us!

Christie was incredibly organized and supportive throughout wedding planning. Though we had her as a day-of-coordinator, she was still very present in the months and weeks leading up to the wedding day to ensure that planning was going well and that we were on the same page. She helped our rehearsal go smoothly. On the day of, Christie was incredible at ensuring that our vision was carried out. She was an excellent problem-solver and had thought of things that my scattered brain that day did not think of. She even went out of her way to get something from the pharmacy for us after we had a little medication mishap! Thank you SO much, Christie, for being so wonderful and contributing to our magical day!

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.

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.

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!
