I'm Krista, the owner and lead planner of Champagne Magnolias. CM grew out of my love of planning, the movie Steel Magnolias, and, you guessed it, champagne! Weddings & Events are truly my passion, so I take the time to get to know every one of my couples to ensure I execute their visions perfectly. I absolutely love planning events, and I put my heart and soul into every one. With over ten years of industry experience, this fast-talking, coffee-loving, Friends obsessed planner is the go-to planner in the tri-state area. 

When I'm not in full planning mode, you can catch me on long walks with my dog, Bowie, or at a local brewery with friends.

If I could give Krista and Champagne Magnolias 1,000 stars I would! Krista made my new husband and I's special day flawless as our day-of coordinator. She is professional, prepared, and also feels like your best friend at the same time. I would recommend Krista to anyone, but especially us brides who tend to run on the anxious side. She made me feel so calm because I knew she had our back all day!!
