About

White Watermelon is an event planning company that designs, plans, and coordinates, weddings and wedding-related events for couples with a ton of personality!

White Watermelon's niche is really anything but the typical banquet hall wedding specializing in venues such as cottages, Airbnb’s, backyards, farms, and fields.

These types of weddings typically mean starting from scratch and having to bring in vendors one by one which can be a bit more of a challenge- but the really great thing about planning a wedding this way is that the options are truly endless, and events can be customized through each and every element!

So, at White Watermelon, we focus on getting to know who you are as a couple to produce an event that fits your personality perfectly.

Services start with our "Sweet Celebration" collection which includes the tools and expert guidance needed to create your once-in-a-melon event as well as Day of Coordination. If you don’t want to lose your ‘rind’, er…I mean mind let White Watermelon help, so you can revel in the sweet glory of a job well done! 🍉😍🎉

    Professional and organized - what you want in a planner!

    Christine was an absolute pleasure to work with. She is organized, professional, and a visionary! We first met at a coffee shop where we told her our story, our personalities, what we wanted (and did not want) for our wedding. Christine took the initiative to create a few designs and themes for the wedding based on what we shared. Christine also found vendors for us that would work with what we wanted and within our budget.

    Unfortunately, when the pandemic hit, a lot of aspects of the wedding had to be changed. Christine remained communicative and was accommodating and worked with us throughout the many changes we've had.

    On the day of the wedding, due to the gathering restrictions, we were only able to use Christine to help set-up the venue. However, this helped tremendously. Christine was able to create the vision we had talked about without any help from us day of. It was so wonderful to be able to show up to the venue and see everything already set-up. This ensured the day could go on efficiently and smoothly.

    Christine made the wedding day as stress-free as it can be! Thank you!

    Could not have made it through my wedding without them

    I used White Watermelon event design to set up and take down my wedding ceremony, cocktail hour and reception dinner. Even though they were hosted at 2 separate places, Christine was a dream to work with and allowed me to enjoy my day without stressing about the logistics of set up and take down at 2 locations. We gave her an assortment of decor we acquired and turned our stuff into a beautiful display. Even my husband was absolutely floored.

    Chrissy was awesome

    Chrissy was wonderful to work with! She made sure everything was perfect on our day and ensured that everything went smooth! She recommended amazing vendors and knew exactly what I wanted from our first conversation.

    Thank you!!

    I struggle to find the right words to express the appreciation and love I have for Christine and White Watermelon Event Design. When we got engaged I knew I wanted to do a lot of the planning and grunt work for our wedding on my own, however, one of my wedding must haves was a coordinator to be involved the month before and day of our wedding. The day I met Christine, I knew I had to work with her and we are so grateful that we had the opportunity to do so! She brought a sense of calmness and confidence to our wedding. She was present and organized throughout the entire process and had the ability to melt our stresses away! Our wedding was everything we imagined and more and went smoother than what we could have hoped for and it was because of Christine!

    Highly recommended!

    Even when you know how much work an event is likely to take, you're still probably underestimating. We did. But Christine made everything go smoothly with an eye for the beautiful. She's on top of the details, and genuinely passionate about making the day perfect. My deeply work-ethic-driven family was so impressed by her, throughout the two evenings (the rehearsal party and the wedding day) and afterwards. We could not have had the wedding we had without her, and can't thank her enough. Highly recommended.

    Thank you Nessa! It was such a pleasure working with you and your husband. Your wedding was absolutely stunning and such fun!

    Amazing job!

    Christine was absolutely amazing! She went above and beyond to make our day so very special. We didn't have to worry about a thing and were just able to enjoy with our family and friends. Thank you!

    I cant express in words how amazing Christine was to work with. She was a lifesaver not only on our big day but all events leading up. She made planning a lot easier and took off a lot of the pressure and worries that comes with it. She attended our rehearsal ceremony and made sure everything was organized and ready for the big day. She put in 110% of her time and effort. She took care of everything including keeping vendors on track and organized, setting up signs at the ceremony, controlling our ceremony music and timing, getting our families organized for photos, setting up all the little details at the reception hall she even went out of her way to buy us cushions for our head table as the bench was too low and the table was too high. Anything we wanted or needed she was on top of it and made sure it got done. Our flowers were running late and I didn't even know on the day of because Christine was already on the case. I would highly recommend White watermelon events to any one who is planning an event and wants some peace of mind. I couldn't imagine our wedding day running so smoothly without her and we are forever thankful for everything she did for us. Thank you Christine!!!!
