Our crazy wedding story is proof that Kristin delivers.

Throughout the planning process, Kristin made things simple for us by helping us refine our vision. When it was time to make a decision, she’d present us with a few well-researched, personalized options, which made planning fun again. We felt included every step of the way, and when we didn’t have it together, Kristin would get us back on track. And when we decided to throw this magical human being a slight curveball by deciding to elope instead of having the wedding we had planned, Kristin didn’t skip a beat. She helped us plan our out-of-state elopement in under 24 hours—and it was nothing short of perfect.

We couldn’t recommend The Gifford Collective enough!

Kristin was absolutely fantastic and exceeded our expectations every step of the way. Initially, we didn’t like the idea of having a wedding because we didn’t believe it was something we could put together ourselves and relax enough to enjoy. But Kristin provided a safe space for us where we could block out all other input and really focus on what would make us feel special. She provided us gentle guidance and protection from stress. Kristin’s ability to bring our vision to reality, while incorporating elegance and function, made for countless moments we will never forget! From planning and styling, to execution, I unreservedly recommend Kristin from The Gifford Collective!

Kristin was fantastic! We got to enjoy every second of our wedding day because Kristin and her team had everything handled. My sister leaned over to me during dinner and said “The Gifford Collective is worth every penny and then some!” I couldn’t agree more. Our wedding day was perfect and it was truly because of her. We got to be guests at our own wedding!

Kristin is an AMAZING wedding planner! Thanks to her - our wedding was absolutely perfect and a wedding our friends have sincerely deemed “so special and memorable.” Every detail was covered and was unique and representative of me and my husband. We were so pleased and wish we could do it all over again!

Kristin is amazing! We can’t imagine her not being at the helm steering our wedding.

When we decided to plan a SURPRISE wedding in just 40 days - she delivered. She was on top of every detail from start to finish. The communication was flawless and she brought tremendous expertise, creativity, calmness, professionalism and fun to the entire experience. We were able to enjoy every minute leading up to the wedding and especially our wedding day thanks to her and all her awesomeness.

We can’t recommend The Gifford Collective enough. We want to plan another event just so we can work with her again - she’s that good!

When I got engaged, I was one of those people that knew I wanted (and needed) a wedding planner. After interviewing quite a few candidates in Nashville, I told my fiancé that we had to go with Kristin. She so clearly stood out as THE planner for us - not only in her exceptional eye for design but also in her professionalism and thoughtfulness! Kristin guided us so intentionally and carefully throughout the entire 18 months of our engagement and planning process, both as our planner and eventually as our dear friend. She masterfully created a vision for our day with us and walked us through each step along the way, incorporating exceptional vendors that made our day unforgettable and reminding us of key milestones as needed. And it all came together in the most magical way imaginable for our wedding day! Our wedding guests still comment on how incredible every single detail of our wedding was and how taken care of they felt, not only by us but by Kristin as well. My husband and I can’t recommend Kristin enough. We’ve already referred so many of our newly engaged friends to her!

Kristin is an All Star! Our wedding was better than we could have ever imagined because of her! Not only does she have an AMAZING design eye and taste, but she is excellent in making your wedding feel so personalized to you and your spouse. She is super punctual and highly professional - and she takes her role in your wedding very seriously! I never at any point had any doubt in her to get something done, and honestly let her run with all of the design after seeing some of her past work because I knew it would be incredible! If you want a wedding that will be handled with care and excellence, while also being blown away by the details - hire Kristin!!!!
