I am addicted to every aspect of my job — my clients, creative teams and pretty things. I am a self-proclaimed coffee addict who loves texture, colors and everything about love. My husband, family and petite goldendoodle make my world go ’round and I love calling my brides my friends. I work firsthand with you and draw inspiration from your story to create your perfect wedding. What are you waiting for? Let’s get started!
Name(s): Christina Leigh Frederick
Where you call home: I call Tulsa, Oklahoma, my home, but have recently opened office #2 in Houston, Texas, where I live with my husband.
Things you’d write home to your Momma about: I am beyond blessed to have been voted the best wedding planner in Oklahoma for two years running by The Daily Meal; I have also been featured in Bridal Guide. We love our Blue Ribbon honor from Southern Weddings, “Bride’s Choice” award from WeddingWire and a Wedding Industry Experts Award for top Event Designer, to name a few. Sweet notes from my brides are also things I share with my Momma!
Location/Coverage: Tulsa, Oklahoma, Houston, Texas, and across the South
How I got into weddings: Call me crazy, but in middle school I started asking my mother to buy me wedding magazines. Yes, I had every issue of Martha Stewart Weddings and knew exactly what I wanted to grow up to be. After getting my degree in communications, an intern position opened at a local planner, and as they say, the rest is history.
Favorite thing about weddings in the South? I LOVE my Southern brides! I love their humble hearts, sweet accents, that their Mommas come to every meeting and their Grandmas make every last dessert for the reception. In the South you can feel the love long before the wedding day.
Pie bar or red velvet cake? Red velvet cake! I love me some pie, but no one can pass on a piece of red velvet cake!
Pottery Barn or Anthropologie? Pottery Barn. As a newlywed myself, meshing two very different design styles can be challenging, but Pottery Barn makes that so easy. Let’s be honest, I could live in their catalogs.
Succulents or peonies? Definitely peonies! Growing up my Momma had huge peony bushes in our front yard and they have been a favorite since the first bloom.
