Native to Baton Rouge, Louisiana, She began planning events for fun with family and close friends over 9 years ago, and still love the endings that come with planning the happiest day of a person’s life from beginning to end. Seeing others happy, watching their eyes glow when they see their vision alive in their dream location even though they didn’t have to lift a single finger. That look is priceless, and that is what impassioned and ignited her to pursue wedding and event planning classes and start her own business.

"It is my pleasure to recommend Christian Williams, Event-planner Extraordinaire. Christian is an innovator in the event-planning industry. She uses her creative mind to think of unique concepts to attract people to her events. I am grateful to have her in my network.

I appreciate her knowledge of the industry and her willingness to share that knowledge to achieve the client’s objectives. Christian is a supportive team-player who would be an asset to any organization or individual. Most importantly, I admire her inner spirit that embraces all people. She is humble with a heart larger than life, with energy that uplifts, and a larger-than-life personality that motivates.

She does everything from weddings and corporate events to fundraising for nonprofits and parties for toddlers. I’m most excited about her annual fashion show, LA Belles and Beaus, that she created to raise money for charity. Christian, you are a gem!
