Christina Granitz is an artistic wedding architect and master of logistics. As a little girl, she would dream of ways to turn ordinary gatherings into extraordinary events from family birthday parties to graduations, she would see the bigger picture and then focus on the tiny details that would elevate the event to new heights.

Christina’s background in project management and interior design has landed her several awards. She was the leading agent on several campaigns for nonprofit organizations, award and recognition ceremonies and team building events. She enjoys transforming spaces to create a unique and one of a kind sophisticated look. It wasn’t until the planning of her own wedding in 2015 that led her into the wedding industry. She quickly learned that the barrage of planning tools available, too much input and perfectly staged photos is what causes stress for many couples planning a wedding. Couples end up with so many ideas, too many photos, too many directions that they haven’t a clue how to manage it all. After all, an event lasts a day, memories last a lifetime- let us handle all the details so that you and your new husband can enjoy one of the most happiest days of your lifetime.

Testimonials

Christina G Events worked with us for almost 3 years. Our planner, Christina, worked with our budget, and made our wedding beautiful and unforgettable! She asked us questions about us, so that she could design the event to represent us, as individuals, and as a couple. She did an outstanding job, really out did herself. One of the things I also loved about our experience with Christina, is that she made it as stress-free of a process, as humanly possible. We are definitely looking forward to using her services in the future for special occasions we want to share with our friends and family again.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for designing and tending to Ella’s sweets table for her big day! Our guests were extremely impressed with the decor! Everyone told us that the sweets table was the prettiest sweets table they have ever seen. It truly meant so much to us to have you there with us to celebrate.

The Patrick Haley Mansion was an absolutely gorgeous venue for our July wedding. While it was more expensive, it was more unique than other venues we visited, which is exactly what we were looking for. The planning process was very easy; we had multiple details meetings and were given a checklist of things that needed to be done for each meeting. While price was non-negotiable (even with a 300 guest count), the chef was very accommodating with food allergies and dietary restrictions. The weather was perfect, so we were able to have our ceremony outside in the garden under the pergola, which made for beautiful pictures. While we were only able to get into the mansion 2 hours prior to our ceremony start time (we would have liked to be there earlier to take advantage of more photo opportunities), we did have opportunity to add personalized touches: we brought framed photos which were placed around the mansion, our photo guestbook and markers were placed on a table with initials we brought, our table centerpieces were placed on the tables for us, and we were able to have an ice cream bar instead of cake. Christina and Sidney were absolutely wonderful, making sure everything was running smoothly, and communicating with us and our guests when there was a timing issue (not the fault of the mansion). We were able to drop off our materials during our dress-rehearsal, and pick them up the morning after our wedding. The Patrick Haley Mansion is truly a uniquely beautiful place to have a wedding.
