nashville wedding planner nashville wedding designer the gifford collective kristin gifford

Hi. I'm kristin.

I’d be honored to help you and your partner create memories you’ll cherish forever.

I've been a planner my whole life. My creative spirit, attention to detail and love of logistics are what first led me to a career in the music industry. But in 2009 my then-boss asked me to apply my skills to a more personal project: her wedding. She gave me a generous budget and a guest list and asked me to take care of the rest. Aside from her dress search and a cake tasting I scheduled for the happy couple, the elements of their wedding day were a complete surprise to them.

They were married in a quaint chapel and hosted an incredible backyard reception at their home that went well into the early morning hours. I became totally smitten with crafting cozy, intentional events. Shortly after, I transitioned out of the music industry and into corporate event marketing and hospitality, where I managed a NASCAR sponsorship for a multi-billion dollar manufacturing corporation before moving on to execute global events for a high-growth tech start-up. Now I plan and design beautiful, intimate weddings in Nashville, Cincinnati and wherever love takes me. My work is a fun, challenging mix of strategy and thoughtful creativity. 

I absolutely love what I do.
