With every season come new trends and new faces in the wedding industry. Every so often you see a trend that you know is going to become timeless and a face you know belongs to a woman who is going to be guiding brides and designing dreams for years to come. Christine Zohrabians of Fancy That! Event Design and Coordination had no wedding planner aspirations but when planning her own, recognized the importance of having the right person to guide you through the process, the necessity of working with someone informed who has the couple’s best interest at heart. In so many ways, this job is akin to that of a matchmaker, only the love match has been made and now, you know your bride and groom and the next challenge is to match them with the perfect vendors for their day. We’ve had the great honor of working with Christine extensively and are always impressed by the care with which she treats her brides so it’s really no surprise that the couple/vendor match is one of her favorite parts of the process. One of our favorite questions to ask when talking with a planner – whether it’s someone we work with all the time or someone new – is how they keep things fresh. For Christine, it’s easy! She - and we can personally attest to this – doesn’t allow her bride to take the easy way out. There is no cookie cutter, clipped it from a magazine anything happening here. Sure, inspiration photos are great but Christine enjoys challenging her couples to make it their own by looking beyond what’s now and into what’s them. It is that personal essence that Christine encourages all of her couples to integrate into their day. We each come from such different backgrounds, cultures and families and the wedding day is really a day to celebrate that as well. Whether it’s having traditional entertainment or something as simple as a special toast, she imparts the importance of this element to each of her brides. What if you aren’t her bride? What would she tell you then? Trust your vendors. Think Timeless, Think Classy, Think Chic - so when you look back together 40 years from now – not only would you not change a thing about your love, but you wouldn’t change a thing about the wedding either.
