Meet Me Monday: Christina & Her Fiance Blair

For two and a half years I have been faithfully blogging on Zinke Design, and while I am so thankful for the experience I am so happy to have a new blog and company! I figured half of you may not really know who I am, or what I do, so I thought I would share. Will that be ok?

So this is me… My name is Christina Leigh Clayton and I own Christina Leigh Events. I love the sun and the soft colors of the spring. I’m not a fan of pop, I only drink water… and soy chai lattes. I love peonies, ranunculus, parrot tulips and soft texture flowers.  I love my family. I think snow looks best on a postcard, or looking at it out my window from the fireplace. I love Jesus. I have a degree in Communications from The University of Tulsa, I was a cheerleader in college. I want a mini goldendoodle and a great dane. I started buying wedding magazines with my allowance in fifth grade. I am OCD and color code everything. I am a Kappa Alpha Theta. I would be lost without my calendar. I love all of my brides… and their moms… and their soon to be moms. I’m a designer, planner and coordinator. I’ll be your best friend, help you pick out a dress, walk you through one of the best times of your life. I’ll think like a 13 year old to throw the best Bat/Bar Mitzvah you’ve ever been to. I love holiday parties and representing your brand. I am an event planner, I love what I do, and I would love to help plan, design and produce your next event!

If you’re getting to know me I thought I would introduce you to my soon to be Mr. also; meet Blair! I have walked so many brides though the wedding process and it has been so much fun! A little over a month ago I became a bride myself, and I am so excited to share my journey with you all. I’ll begin with how we re-met! It was April 10, 2010, I was at contestants day for Miss Oklahoma and got a phone call from a friend that a group was going to dinner and I should come. She also told me that Blair was in town. — Rewind four years. I remembered Blair from college; he played football and I cheered. The first time I ever met him was in the Kappa Alpha Theta house at TU. He was doing a class project with my Big, Sarah, and she briefly introduced us. — Of course I remembered the 6’6″ tall, sweet southern gentleman from Texas. I hadn’t been to dinner with a group of friends in awhile so I went. Being the sweet man Blair is, he offered me his chair so that I didn’t have to sit on the end. We ended up chatting for awhile and then we all headed to stop number two. We spoke there for awhile and then I called an early night and headed home. A couple of days later I sent Blair a Facebook message to say it was great to see him and I hoped he had a great trip back home. The message was the beginning of a never ending chain of messages. Needless to say, I’m glad I sent that message. 🙂 Next week I’ll be back to share our proposal story.

Christina Leigh Events is LIVE

I am so excited to announce that Christina Leigh Events is live! As many of you know for the past 3 years I have been involved in the wedding/event industry. I absolutely LOVE (yes I put that in all caps for a reason) my job coordinating and designing events and weddings for my clients, and knew from a young age this is exactly where I wanted to be. When I found out a few months ago that the current company I work for was going to go in another direction you can only imagine my heavy heart. I am so excited for my boss and sister company, but knew I had to stay in this industry. After all, who doesn’t love – love. 🙂 I have been incredibly blessed to be placed in the position I am in. I have been able to learn first hand design and coordination skills from the most creative designer in the area, and work on events no other company does. I have had the best brides, families and organizations that not only have I been able to call clients, but friends. I am so excited to continue this journey by starting my own company! I am so happy to continue to design, coordinate and work for the best clients around! 2012 is already booking and I am excited to already be working on weddings, dinners and a Bat Mitzvah! So if you are planning an event please let me know! You can contact me at christina@christinaleighevents for more information!
