An integral part of the AFE team, Gillian is the designated Hudson Valley wedding and event planner. Though she spent most of her childhood on her family’s horse farm she’s always had a love for planning events. Gillian loves a rustic rustic barn wedding weekend just as much as she loves a formal affair, and always makes sure that each event she’s involved in reflects her clients taste fully.
With a BA in Political Science from SUNY Geneseo, and years spent organizing horse shows for her family business Gillian is the perfect balance of hardworking and fun-loving. Meticulous by nature, and with a love for seeing all the small details come together to bring a concept to life, Gillian revels in the opportunity to work with couples and organizations as they bring people together.
Born and raised in the farm-to-table region that is the Hudson Valley, Gillian has a strong love for food and wine which allows her to bring creative ideas and inside knowledge of the Hudson Valley region to all her events. When she’s not planning events, Gillian gets lost cooking for friends and family - she loves a good dinner party! Her favorite dance song is Brown Eyed Girl and if it plays at your event you may find her shimmying at the back of the room.
Christina’s sense of humor, enthusiasm, and creativity bring immense joy to every event that she’s a part of. Prior to joining the AFE team she was in restaurant event management as well as a professional dancer. Her vast experience in the event and hospitality industry, along with her “show must go on” attitude always puts clients at ease and allows them to truly enjoy their planning process.
She has had a life-long passion for organizing, planning, and bringing people together to celebrate and create long-lasting memories. Her favorite part of any event is the look on a client’s face when they walk into the space and see that their vision has come to life. It’s the moment when they fully relax and enjoy the day, and there’s nothing more satisfying to her as a planner than creating space for people to be part of their own celebration.
A Michigan native, Christina instantly fell in love with New York. Any weekend she’s not on an event she spends going to concerts in the park, trying out new restaurants, and exploring her neighborhood - Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
