Her favorite thing about event planning and business is that, “There are no rules for a reason, so throw away the tradition and go with what you love.” Christina Burton.
How did you get your start in the Event Planning Industry
Three years into my career in corporate events, I transitioned to work for a small business that did event planning for events of all types. It was there that I found my love for the small business world, but after several years, I realized that I had my own passions for entrepreneurship, so I finally launched my own event planning company specializing in weddings
What is your favorite part of the industry
Christina: I love the relationships I’ve been able to form through the event industry! When my husband and I moved to a new state, the industry was a great platform for me to meet people and make new friends. I’ve always found great friendships through fellow vendors
What are your favorite wedding trends this year
Christina: I love that color is making a comeback! After having several years with a lot of greenery and white, I’m beginning to see more colors being incorporated once again and I’m so excited
What is the biggest change you have seen since the start of your career
Christina: Over the ten
What is the best piece of advice you have ever
Christina: You do you. Whether it be for planning an event or running a business, it’s so easy to constantly have ideas thrown your way from every direction, making you feel like you have to do things like everyone else. But events and business are just so much more fun when your unique spin is put on it. There are no rules for a reason, so throw away the tradition and go with what you love.
