meet the ladies of cse


Owner + Wedding Planner

I'm Christina! Type A+ with a slight flair for the dramatic, I have a Mawmaw’s soul and a little side of sass. I was born and raised in North Georgia, and those Smoky Mountains will always be my heaven on earth. It’s where I fell in love with entertaining, from my Mawmaw who taught me everything I know about hospitality and celebrating life.

I love God, my family, crispy tater tots, and a good margarita. But what am I really known for? An impressive collection of seasonally appropriate candles, overuse of exclamation marks, and singing loudly along to every NKOTB song like it’s still 1990.  

I love working with you throughout the planning process and serving you on one of the best days of your life. My heart always skips a beat at the sound of the music, as I fluff your dress and you take those first steps down the aisle. (And let’s be honest, it also skips a beat when the band plays Sweet Home Alabama at the reception.)


I will always, always cry during father of the bride

I use way too many exclamation points

I like to think of them as email confetti.

Wedding Planner + Event Manager

Despite being born during a blizzard, Lauren has lived most of her life right here in Alabama. A lover of coffee (like A LOT of coffee), chocolate and anything pink, she is a sucker for great love story and there isn't a chick flick she hasn't seen or cried through. She believes there is nothing better than an organized bag, a checklist or the perfect pen. She will never turn down Mexican food and College Football is an absolute necessity in her life (War Eagle!).

Lauren joined CSE in 2017 and has quickly become an indispensable part of the team. She is genuine, sassy, and has such a heart for loving on others - a true cornerstone of who we are and what we do here at CSE. You'll find Lauren working with our brides to plan their big day, and when that day arrives, she effortlessly executes timelines and flawlessly coordinates all of the moving pieces and behind-the-scenes logistics that go into every wedding day. 

When she isn't planning weddings, she enjoys spending time with her husband, Seth (newlyweds as of February 2017!) and their precious pups, Winston and Wagner.
