Meet the Planners {Christine Godsey}

Next up in our behind the scenes look at our planning team is Christine Godsey. Christine loves planning elaborate multicultural weddings and also loves zipping up to New York to pull together fabulous big city bashes. What you may not know:

What do you always carry in your purse that people might find odd?  Ear plugs…you just never know when you may need them.
Any interesting/funny pre-wedding (or post-wedding) rituals?  I always go to Starbucks beforehand and grab a green or black tea before starting my day. 
Describe your favorite pair of shoes (living or dead)  My black platform Louboutin pumps for going out and my black knee high Corso Como riding boots for everyday.
What has been your favorite vendor meal?  Hmmm…after a long day I think my favorite vendor meal was a SUPER cheesy vegetarian lasagna with delicious garlic bread.  It could not have been more perfect.
What is your favorite guilty pleasure TV show?  All reality all the time!  Currently…Moonshiners.  Consistently…Real Housewives of Orange County.  Secret Favorite…Teen Mom 2.
What wedding song would you be happy to never hear again as long as you live?  Any choreographed dance song.

Wedding trend you would love to see die a quick death.
  Taking the garter off of the blushing Bride and placing it on the lucky lady who caught the bouquet.  Enough said!

What is one thing no one in the wedding business knows about you and would be surprised to learn?
  I am absolutely obsessed with scuba diving with sharks (not the tame ones like nurse sharks but the slightly sketchy ones like Bulls or Reef). 

What is the strangest thing a client has ever asked you to do?
  Ride along with her in the limo with her bridesmaids all day and be in front of her at all times.
