We cannot say enough about Christina Whitney.
It was clear from the first phone conversation, the ensuing handshake with a warm confident smile, that we were making the best decision, second only to each other, towards the day we envisioned.
We did it all in pieces - venue, caterer, flowers, band, tent, photographer, and Christina was the glue. At the time, working with Sterling Affair, Christina stepped passed the role of caterer and embodied the unspoken title of planner. She was our biggest fan when we were excited about an idea, and our honest mentor when we couldn't decide.That was something to always count on and appreciate - Christina always gives it to you straight. She was a calming force for many a meeting; both professional and demanding with vendors, she knows the trade like the back of her hand, she knows when to push because someone could deliver more, and she knows when to trust another professional to do their job. She channeled our excitement and focused our ideas, and was as hands on as she needed to be while always keeping the big picture in mind.
Food was a priority for us - major. With Christina's culinary background, we knew we were in good hands. We are still getting compliments on the hors d'oeuvres at our wedding months and months later - she advised us on those, too.
Christina is the ringer you want on your team. She is the reason why your guests have a great time and they thank you for it. Our wedding was gorgeous, but most importantly, WE had the best time. We saw everyone, we ate the food, we danced the night away. It was because of the pace of the evening that Christina set, and the confidence that she instilled, that we were calm and able enjoy the most important night of our lives.
She is a rock star, and she has our highest praise!
