black wedding planner in arizona and texas

Hi, I'm Krystal!

I specialize in curating wedding experiences that reflect your true personalities. I revel in the unique and will be your biggest supporter in your trend setting or quirky ideas. I am the planner that will embrace your cultural wedding elements, support your nontraditional ideas, and remind you that this is YOUR day.  I will expand on your wedding vision, suggesting and creating a design that you and your guests will remember. Having done weddings at museums, in the middle of the desert, and even on a train, I will help you create a special day that is unlike anyone else's!

Owner + Senior Wedding Planner


There are no three words that represent Gardenia Weddings more. Our goal is to create a wedding experience that is unique to you. We will support (and suggest!) nontraditional ideas and alternatives that best represent who you are. We understand that every couple comes with different needs and stressors. Whether that be finding a photographer that can beautifully capture different skin tones, finding a venue that supports LGBTQIA+ couples, or considering sensory sensitivity for neurodivergent couples. We focus on creating a planning experience and overall environment where you feel comfortable and supported every step of the way.

On your wedding day, you will be fully supported by our team of coordinators, ensuring every detail is perfect. Every role is essential when it comes to executing one of the most important days of your lives! While some ladies are focused on design and set-up, another is corralling your wedding party for photos, meanwhile others are stationed to greet and direct your guests.


With our heads on a swivel, we keep a watchful eye out for any wedding faux-pas. Uncle Dave has had too much to drink? A guest showed up wearing a white gown? Someone decided to ignore the "no kids" rule? We'll handle it! After all of our meetings, we will know exactly how you want each "what if" scenario handled and act accordingly to save you the frustration or awkwardness.


Our team brings their passion for love and eye for detail to create an unforgettable wedding experience for you and your guests to swoon over for years to come.

let's talk about you

Our clients want to provide an unforgettable wedding experience for their guests through stunning design, a dynamic atmosphere, and unforgettable moments.

They understand that in order to create a wedding where every detail and decision is meticulously planned, they need a wedding team that they trust and an experienced planner at the helm. They desire a curated vendor team that is sourced based on quality of service, a synergy in personality, and an overall alignment with their vision. 

Our clients want to trust a professional to provide helpful and transparent information and guidance throughout the planning process and welcome the luxury of not having to spend dozens or hundreds of hours handling all the details themselves. They want to relinquish the mountainous legwork and tedious details so that they can focus on actually enjoying the engagement process. 

That's why they hire Gardenia Weddings!
