I could tell you that I’ve been in the hospitality industry for over a decade and have been a server, a bartender, a restaurant manager, a catering manager and worked in the luxury events and weddings industry for 7 of those years…BUT that’s the boring resume stuff. 

I’m a huge lover of comedy, action and sci-fi movies and really only go to the theater for the popcorn. I LOVE supporting local small businesses and would much rather shop small. I’m a big believer in “going with your gut” and really have learned to trust myself and my vision.

I have an amazing wife and little boy who fill my life with love and laughter. I hope to show my son that if you want something in this life, nothing is off limits. Build the life of your dreams and dream BIG!

I show up on my Instagram stories and let you into my life, my creative processes and show you what real life is like running your own business, being a mom and trying to "balance" it all. Let's face it, the majority of my time is spent in sweats in front of my computer creating all of the behind the scenes magic that you see on your big day.

Nina + sean

Kristen is simply THE BEST. She made the entire wedding planning process from start to finish seamless. I had a lot of nerves and anxiety leading up to the wedding and she made sure to focus on specific tasks at each of our check ins which really helped.

She does BOTH planning and design!! She has endless ideas to elevate your day and how to bring personal elements into the focus throughout all areas of the wedding.

Come day of, she knew exactly how I wanted things laid out and really took my theme to the next level; she even brought her own items to help fill in decor.

Her day of coordination team is A+++. Things went flawlessly and Sean and I were able to just focus on celebrating our love with our closest friends and family.

If you want someone that you can rely on and help make your wedding dreams come true, book Cedar and Stone!!
