What inspired you to become a Wedding Planner?

I had worked as an event coordinator for a local rental equipment company for weddings and events and I was wanting more! I hated just setting up the event but not ever seeing it all come together so I joined the A Seaside Wedding + Events team in 2011. I took over the department in 2014 and have helped over 300 couples tie the knot.


What keeps you passionate about weddings?

My couples! I just love being able to help them along the wedding planning journey. It’s so awesome to look back at the initial forms they filled out and then see what our team of vendors has created for them on the day of the wedding. It just makes my heart smile when I see a couple enter the ceremony + reception space for the first time. I can’t imagine doing anything else!


Please share a recent testimonial from a happy client!

"I cannot express how grateful I am for Krystal. From the first meeting to the big day, she was on it. I was so overwhelmed before she was recommended by a friend, and she made all the little details seem effortless. Our whole family was able to relax and enjoy the day. Even when my groom realized the day of that he had no way to attach his suspenders to his pants.... she made it happen. She has a natural talent for planning events and a great eye for decorations. She made the entire process significantly less stressful. I’ll never be able to fully repay her for making the best day of our lives so memorable and effortless. She is easy-going and listens openly. She communicated with the vendors for me, making my responsibilities simple and my to-do list MUCH shorter. Nothing felt chaotic or rushed or problematic– and that is ONLY because she was there. She respected all of our wishes for our wedding style and made them into a reality. I truly cannot sing her praises enough. Krystal is the absolute best." --Tina C.
