Christine was helpful in every way and was always a text-message or phone call away. She was there to walk us through the rehearsal and all day the day of the wedding!

Amazing coordinator- Christine was so wonderful to have coordinate our wedding day! She took care of everything with ease and made the day flow perfectly!
Backyard Outdoor Wedding
Christine was able to jump in the month before our wedding and make sure everything came together. Most of our things were Diy. Because we had a small wedding she was willing to set up our ceremony chair and reception tables too. So glad we did that so everyone that was there could enjoy the day.

The most perfect and necessary addition to any wedding! Could not recommend Christine enough! After going through the wedding planning process and the day itself, I am now totally convinced that having at least a day of coordinator is a must! Even before the wedding in our meeting and phone call Christine thought of so many little details and items I hadn't even considered that were so important. Having her at the wedding to help set up all my little personal decor, keep the night going with all the things I wanted to make sure happen helped allow us to enjoy our day so much more without having to worry about anything. Christine is super friendly, professional and clearly knows what she's doing!

So On Point! Christine was a God send! She was so on point to make sure our day went as planned and that everyone was where they were supposed to be and when they were supposed to be there! She went through the timeline with us a week before and made sure that I had everything I needed for our wedding and on the wedding day, she had all of our accessories, signing board, pictures, etc. set out and even picked up at the end. Our family was talking about how professional she was and the attention to detail she had to make sure things were flowing accordingly. Thank you so much for all of your help and expertise!

Unbelievable! Went above and beyond and made our wedding more magical than I could have ever imagined.
I cannot put into words how fantastic my experience was. They took care of every detail and saved the day when I had a problem with my dress. From the logistics to the décor to the planning to everything else I was blown away. I didn’t know how badly I needed someone to do all of this until I actually got married. I feel incredibly blessed to have had the support I did and the professionals that knew and understood what I wanted and needed more than I did. Thank you!!!!!
Roswell River Landing
September Wedding at Roswell River Landing!
Christine was the BEST wedding decision I made! I was one of those brides that thought a DIY wedding would be so fun and simple, and that I could bring it to life. Well, Christine is definitely the one who brought it to life! I booked Christine without meeting her, just a referral, and a phone conversation. After chatting about my wedding dreams and hearing her insight and experience, I knew I needed her! Her sweet, soft, calming voice was a constant through the whole wedding planning process. And although she is the sweetest person I have ever met, she also has a strong presence and definitely helped me out when I had trouble with vendor communication and helped voice what I needed.
She was so responsive, and was able to chat whenever I needed her, and every time we talked I felt so much better about the progress of the planning I was doing. There were things I had no idea I needed to think about, but Christine helped me think through them and offered referrals and ideas every step of the way! As the wedding weekend approached she took care of the conversations the week before the wedding and the day of, I didn’t have to worry or think about a thing! She was there to meet with everyone, she set EVERYTHING up of the décor that I had got together for her, and made it even more beautiful than I had imagined! She helped the whole day run smoothly. She provided enough space for us to enjoy every moment of the day, but was somehow always there and available if I needed anything. I can’t even put in to words how wonderful it was having Christine there, she made the day go perfect, and I have no clue what I would have done without her. She was so wonderful to work with, and I will recommend her to everyone I meet!

Christine was amazing to work with. She kept a smile on her face the entire day and kept everything moving like clockwork so that this MOB could rest easy knowing that all was taken care of. She executed our vision perfectly with respect to décor and flower placement, etc. so that the entire venue was break takingly beautiful. She was an essential part of our day and is such a treasure. I hope to work with her again when our youngest daughter gets married.
The Stave Room
Christine and her team were above and beyond anything my (now) wife and I could have asked for in a wedding coordinator. Our wedding seemed flawless in our eyes and it’s because of the behind the scenes work Christine and team were doing on our behalf. 100% recommend!
The Peachtree Club
Christine is excellent! People say you can't have the perfect wedding, well I did! There were apparently were some blips on the day, but I never even heard about it until days later. That to me was reflective of how excellent Christine and her team are. She also saved me at the rehearsal when the church had a coordinator that was lining everyone up wrong! I was so flustered with my family, I didn't notice! She helped me so much! I couldn't recommend her enough.
The Trolley Barn
If it weren't for Christine, I don't know what I would have done! She was absolutely fantastic from our first initial meet-and-greet to the last moment she was with us. She helped us plan everything so well, she answered any and all questions we had, she helped us figure out our timeline and made the entire event gorgeous! Christine was without a doubt the best investment we made during the entire process. I highly recommend using Christine if you're looking for day-of coordination!
My experience with Christine is one that I would choose over and over again if I were to re-plan my wedding day. From the day I signed my contract with her, she was helpful, kind, patient, and knowledgeable. The thing that I appreciated most about working with her was her compassion and attention-to-detail, which was one of our many common traits. She was able to perfectly capture what my fiance and I wanted on our wedding-day and help me bring it to life. I cannot thank her enough for everything she did for myself and my fiance, and I truly hope that you choose her when it comes to choosing your day-of coordinator.
I cannot recommend Christine highly enough and do not even know where to begin to sing her praises. As a bride who was more than a little shy about the entire wedding planning process, Christine was my sanity. She was able to think through everything from the smallest details to the most meaningful moments of our big day; advising on the wicks of our candles and the hugs I would give to my parents before joining hands with my groom with the same reassurance and grace. Christine was so present and helpful for every step of the planning process and was the sweetest friend to see after running back down the aisle as newlyweds. We were so grateful to have her orchestrating all the excitement of our wedding into a day that was smooth and perfect and so enjoyable for us. I don't know how a wedding is possible without a coordinator and I certainly know ours wouldn't have been half as beautiful without Christine!
Roswell River Landing
Christine did a fantastic job as our wedding coordinator! Our wedding was in August of 2017. My husband and I planned our wedding at the Roswell River Landing and we hired all the vendors. Christine was hired to coordinate all the vendors and direct the ceremony and reception. She did a great job!
We had an initial phone conference with her and my husband, then we had an in-person planning meeting at the venue. She gave great feedback and had wonderful ideas. She shared her preferred vendor list, was available for calls and promptly answered emails. She had a planning packet for us, so that all the details of the big day were in writing for our reference. She even had an assistant, Tiffany, on the wedding day to ensure that everything went smoothly.
Christine made sure everything happened when, where and how it was supposed to. She paid close attention to detail, she was organized and prepared. Christine was nice, confident, experienced, and easy going. If we had to do it all over again, we would hire Christine of Signature Southern Weddings for sure. Her "sparkler sendoff" suggestion was the best!

Christine is very helpful and responsible. She gave us a lot of good advises and made sure my wedding was smooth and beautiful. I would like to highly recommend her!

Booking with Signature Southern Weddings will ensure your day is beyond PERFECT! Their style and attention to detail is beyond any I have seen. Every wedding I have worked with SSW has been so flawless, so the bride/groom/family can relax and really enjoy the day! I highly recommend this company!
One of the most important pieces of a well executed wedding is the planning! Nothing is worse than everyone running around trying to figure things out on the day of the wedding! Christine is so organized! Her timelines are perfect! Her communication is always timely. I have worked with many planners and event organizers and I am always thrilled to find out that Signature Southern Weddings is my go-to! She's an absolute pleasure to work with! Highly recommend this vendor!

Amazing!!! Really and truly the day of my dreams.
As an event planner in Miami Beach I can be a bit difficult to please... I'll admit it. At first I thought that since I do this for a living planning my own destination wedding in the middle of the Blue Ridge Mountains would be a breeze... I soon found out I was wrong, so so wrong.
When I started looking for planner/day of coordinators I started to get even more nervous (I do this for a living remember, so the pressure was on) Once I finally found Christine I knew from our first exchange that she would be " the one" ha ha ha.
Kind and professional to the core, she listened and was patient gently steering me back on course at times when I needed it, but she never came off as pushy. Christine was honestly a godsend... she connected me with a few wonderful vendors and even though I only hired her for day of coordination really went way above and beyond leading up to the big day. She even drove all the way out and met me at the venue on Easter weekend... talk about great service!
As anyone can tell you a GREAT event planner is so much more than someone who puts flowers on tables... they have to be a confidant, co conspirator, friend and sometimes even a policeman. And the very best alternate these roles seamlessly, never making anyone feel ill at ease or uncomfortable... and like a great film director you never see them onscreen but they are always there. Christine was all of that and more.
My new husband and I thank you so so so much for really making our dreams come true. The day and evening were both magical, even more lovely than we had hoped for.

As a type "A" personality Bride Christine saved the BIG day... multiple times. I would not have been able to have everything flow together or even know what a "timeline" was without her.
Lake Lanier Islands Resort
I don't know where to start! Christine was an absolute blessing for my May 2017 wedding. From the moment we had our initial planning meeting, I knew she would take care of everything and ensure that my wedding day was absolutely perfect. My stress levels were significantly lowered after that meeting! I had a lot of DIY decor for my ceremony and reception. She displayed everything so perfectly, I couldn't have done it better myself. She made the ceremony and reception run smoothly. She was my voice for all the vendors. Our wedding day was an absolute dream, and we owe it all to Christine! If you are considering hiring Signature Southern Weddings, it will be the best decision you make for your wedding. We LOVE her!
Mountain Laurel Farm
Christine makes everything just seem like a piece of cake at my venue! ;) Things that normally are stressful with other directors and planners just work seamlessly with Christine. I trust her experience to handle it all from start to finish. From the bride, to the vendors, to making sure all the finishing touches are just so....Perfect Professionalism.
The Greystone Estate
I had the privilege of witnessing Christine of Southern Signature Weddings coordinate a beautiful wedding at The Greystone Estate. We repeatedly admired her professionalism and attention to detail. Her style is smooth and gentle, yet she possesses the strength and tenacity to manage an event with ease. She did not miss a beat. I highly recommend her.
Christine was a pleasure to work with and a consummate professional every step of the way. I have worked with numerous other wedding planners as a DJ and an MC and she was hands down the BEST! I have no reservations recommending Signature Southern weddings to all you bride and grooms out there who want your big day to go off without a hitch.
Christine Manning, the wedding coordinator, is fantastic and she made my wedding day a dream. She works very hard and is very quick to respond to emails. I was a question asking bride and Christine was always so patient and kind to me. She answered all of my questions and even did extra work when she did not have to. Christine was fast to correct any problems. Very thankful for a beautiful day that my guests have raved about non-stop since our wedding three weeks ago!

As a professional wedding photographer, I have the opportunity to work with many different vendors and have a first hand opportunity to interact with each of them. Christine of Signature Southern Weddings is top-notch! Not only is she exceptional in keeping a wedding day running smoothly, she does it with kindness and grace and attention to every detail. Christine's behind-the-scenes skills are often what make a wedding day 'seem' seamless but are critical to the flow of the event. I can't recommend her highly enough! It's always a pleasure and treat to work with her!
Christine was truly incredible! She made our wedding day more perfect than I could have imagined. Her thoroughness, attention to detail, and willingness to go above and beyond to get the job done were amazing. I'm the most Type A person I know and she still managed to think of small details I would have forgotten about and literally rocked them all. She's extremely sweet, kind, and easy to work with. I would without a doubt recommend her to anyone planning a wedding who wants to kick back and enjoy the day of their wedding without worrying about anything.
Christine and Tabitha were the perfect choice for what my husband and I needed for our wedding day! We were looking for help solely for day of, mainly for price, but Christine was available and willing to help leading up to the day. She offered helpful advice and tips for planning and remained calm, even when I was not! My venue ended up being extremely muddy and required a lot of flexibility and do it yourself work to rearrange the set up. Christine and Tabitha jumped right in and ensured that we had an absolutely gorgeous wedding. It was worth every penny to not have to stress or worry at all on our wedding day!! If you are looking for an affordable and amazing coordinator, look no further! You will not regret it.
Christine was actually booked by my venue coordinator, so I was really not sure what to expect. My mother and I had planned everything up to the day of my wedding, we were just wanting someone to program the day! Christine was amazing, we literally could not have done it without her assistance! We first met, maybe a month before the wedding, and she walked through our venue with us, and mapped everything out that we had discussed. She and I worked together to do the timeline for our wedding day. I was so thankful for her assistance with that, as she knew much more than I did about the timelines needed for each part of our day. She was awesome about staying connected with me in the weeks leading up to our wedding, and answered any questions I had promptly. Christine did an excellent job at coordinating our rehearsal, she assisted us in making last minute changes due to the weather. However, the day of our wedding, we were able to go with our original plan of having the ceremony outside. She did an excellent job at changing everything at the last minute, and making sure everyone was on the same page. Christine was at my side almost the whole day of our wedding, at the reception she made sure everything ran smoothly, and that we stayed pretty close to our timeline. She is great at what she does! She lifted so much stress from my mom and I, and we were able to enjoy our day! I highly recommend her services!
I am obsessed with Christine! Initially I had booked a day of coordinator because it was a requirement from my venue. Definitely one of the best decisions I made for the wedding day. I cannot say enough positive things about her. She paid close attention to detail and was invaluable on the day of. Christine was able to direct the wedding so smoothly. She was extremely receptive to everything that was needed and had a warm and comforting presence throughout the night. Her quiet confidence put me and all of my guests at ease. I feel so grateful to her for making our wedding day so memorable. I have no hesitation in recommending her and wish there was more I could do to support her business!
When I first started planning my wedding I thought that I could do it on my own that I didn't need any help at all. I grew up in a big family that always helped each other out and I thought that their help was all I needed at the time. My husband to be always said to me that I needed a coordinator that it would help relieve stress and on our day we would not have to worry about a single thing. This is where Christine came into the picture. I got Christine's name from Hitched Planning Plus Floral and she was perfect. The first time we met her she had thought of things to ask about the day of I had not even considered. I left the meeting and looked at my husband to be as we walked out of the door and said you are right we do need her. As soon as I got home I sent her an email saying, "she was hired." Leading up to our wedding Christine was there for any questions I had and was more than helpful. On the day of our rehearsal Christine took charge and I walked away wondering how it would have gone if she had not been there it would have been a mess. The rehearsal went smoothly and everyone walked away knowing exactly what and where they needed to be at what time. On the morning of our wedding I woke up STRESS FREE knowing that Christine would be there if anything went wrong! Her day of timeline was spot on for what we needed. She told us when we first met she would be the first to get there and the last one to leave and that is exactly how it went. Our parents, vendors, and guests were very impressed with her and multiple people said they would recommend her to anyone getting married. My husband and I would recommend her to anyone she was the perfect fit for our day. We both knew going into our day that we could count on her and she proved that to be true and more. THANK YOU AGAIN!!!
Christine was amazing and worth so much more than what she charges to do a day of coordination. My entire bridal party was impressed by her and she instantly became apart of the family. She was 100% professional, affordable and knowledgeable on everything that I was able to relax (or try to) the day of my wedding. I was a very hands on bride and every time I remembered that something had to be done, Christine had already taken care of it. Christine you are so amazing, I cannot wait to see how your business grows and where you are in the near future. Every bride deserves to have you on their team and I am so grateful that I had you on mine :)
As the mother of the bride I can honestly say that we were so very pleased with our decision to hire Christine. Her experience was apparent as she made sure every detail was taken care of during the planning phase and on the day of the wedding. We might have been overwhelmed if Christine hadn’t been there to coordinate and to ensure that all of our plans were executed as we wished.
She was extremely professional, courteous and efficient when dealing with our vendors and our family and friends. Kudos Christine..... can’t thank you enough!
Christine was a life saver as our "day of" wedding planner. She coordinated all of the vendors as well as the wedding party and made sure everyone was where they were supposed to be! Christine was very professional and a super hard worker - she was willing to pitch in wherever we needed her. Definitely a "must have" on the day of the wedding!
Christine was always so pleasant and professional. She helped get my loud bridal party (the girls and the guys!) organized during rehearsal. She had great rates and I would recommend her to any bride who want to enjoy her wedding day and not have to stress about the details!
