Focus On Your Big Day And Let The Gifford Collective Handle The Details

If April showers bring May flowers, then December engagements bring June weddings, right?

Planning a wedding nowadays is filled with lots of Pinterest-perfect expectations that can be intimidating. What's a bride-to-be to do? Call in the experts, of course. If you're looking for the créme de la créme when it comes to wedding planning, look no further than The Gifford Collective.


Kristin Gifford, owner of the business, brought a bevy of event planning experience to the industry in 2017 when she launched the brand. Now, she offers full-service planning and design for couples in Cincinnati, Nashville, and wherever love takes her (as she likes to say). Kristin aims to make her clients feel calm, joyful, and loved on their wedding day. Which, let's be honest, is not always the simplest feat.


While Kristin's personal aesthetic is minimalistic — think clean lines and muted color palettes — she makes it her top priority to plan a wedding that is thoughtfully and distinctively personal to each client. Whether you want your day to be boho chic and filled with greenery, or if you're looking for something romantic with soft blush blooms spilling over every table, Kristin is there to make your wedding dreams a reality.


It's easy to swoon over the many beautiful weddings Kristin has planned, but what's her secret? She believes three things comprise good wedding advice:

  1. Trim the guest list.

  2. Prioritize your photography.

  3. Make your celebration unique to you and your love. Forget preconceived notions of what a wedding should be according to others.

Get a mental picture of the days The Gifford Collective has planned by heading to the gallery above. Trust me, you won't be disappointed.
