About Celebrations of Love, LLC.
Since Celebrations of Love's very first wedding in the spring of 2010, the company has grown tremendously. In that time, I’ve designed, planned, and coordinated dozens of events, including weddings of all sizes and kinds. Each event has included personal touches and unique details customized to reflect the happy couple—meaning no two weddings are alike.
What sets Celebrations of Love apart is my commitment to my clients. I am dedicated to exceeding expectations and always going the extra mile, offering no limit to day-of hours and doing whatever is needed to execute an exceptional event.
Beyond weddings, I’ve also planned birthday parties, holiday celebrations, and bridal and baby showers. No matter what the special occasion, Celebrations of Love can help you turn moments into memories of a lifetime.
Christine M. Darden ♥
Owner, Certified Wedding Specialist & Certified Wedding Planner
Living just four miles south of my parents’ home where I grew up with my four sisters, I’m not only familiar with the streets of Kansas City and the surrounding metro area, but they are ones I have driven, walked, and explored for over 25 years. I attended Saint Louis University, where I earned my bachelor’s degree in Business Marketing from John Cook School of Business, so I also have a soft spot in my heart for everything Saint Louis, especially those Cardinals.
As a wedding planner, I get to combine my passion for helping people with my knack for problem-solving and creative thinking. I like to say that I’m the thread that runs through every part of the wedding, tying together all of the pieces to create one cohesive event. And I believe every bride deserves an assistant—a “fairy godmother”—on her special day.
An advocate for my clients’ wishes through every step of the planning process, I make sure they feel comfortable and confident in all of their decisions. To guarantee that everything runs smoothly, I bring vendors up to speed, keep track of details and timing, and act as an extra set of hands. I never settle for less than my best in any area. The result? My clients and their families can simply relax and celebrate!
Now, if you don't find me in local craft shops searching for the perfect items for my clients’ weddings or at networking events catching up with other area wedding professionals, you might find me running triathlons/5ks or enjoying the preserve that surrounds my little yellow cottage. Staying healthy and positive is my top priority so that my jam-packed schedule doesn’t wear me down—though a cup of coffee (or a few!) often helps me power through. When it’s time to relax, my absolute favorite things to do are cuddle up with a million blankets (especially on a snowy winter night), watch romantic movies, and drink a glass of blush wine or champagne.
