owner & wedding planner The Greater New York City Division
I am a native Floridian. Went to college at Florida State University (GO NOLES) and worked for a country club-which is where I got my feet wet in the wedding industry. Not too long after college my high school sweetheart and I moved to NYC to start our professional career's in the best city in the world. We now reside in Tribeca with our very spoiled English Bulldog- Dude.
I am not only a lover of weddings, but a lover of learning about peoples traditions, cultures and unique personalities.
I am lucky to do what I love and love what I do!
KRISTIN KYLE PHALINES owner + wedding planner The Greater Philadelphia Division
I grew up in Florida and moved to NC for High School and remained there until I graduated from The University of North Carolina at Greensboro. My degree is in Education and Dance which led me to teaching gymnastic and dance for 10 years. I fell in love with wedding planning while planning my own wedding in 2004 and have been happily married ever since. We have two beautiful children.
Owning my own business was always a dream of mine and Meghan and I went full steam ahead to make this dream a reality.
Wedding planning is now my career, but even more than that, it is my passion! I truly love what I do and can't wait to meet new couples, watch as their day becomes a reality, all while knowing I had a part in making it happen.
Tighler is recent graduate from Drexel University with a degree in Marketing and minor in Public Relations. Although she was only 2 years old at her parents wedding she was mesmerized by the dresses, glamor, love, and family she saw. That was where her love for weddings began and it has only grown with each wedding she has been to since. Fashion, love, family and friends are the pillars that have shaped Tighler’s life. And after she completed her internship with Kyle Michelle Weddings she knew she wanted to continue her career in wedding planning with us! Her business, marketing, and social media experience makes her a great addition to the team! Tighler thinks of every wedding she does as a friend's or family member's which is just one of the reasons we were happy to offer her a job!
Sara is currently a senior at the University of Delaware majoring in Communications and minoring in Advertising. When Sara was a little girl she would dress up her dolls and host weddings for her friends and family to attend in the living room. After finishing her first year of college Sara realized event planning was the perfect fit for her. Being a part of a sorority has given Sara insight into what it’s like to plan large events and given her social media experience that will help her be a great addition to the team! Sara spends her free time researching new fashion trends and pinning endless amounts of weddings pictures to her Pinterest. One day Sara hopes to be planning weddings all over the world and making the perfect day for every couple she meets!
I'm a recent graduate from the University of Delaware, Go Hens! My family always joked that I majored in cheerleading, which I was so lucky to do throughout high school and for 4 years at the University of Delaware. I got my degree in Marketing and Management and knew that I wanted to work in event planning. After graduation I was given the opportunity to help plan in-house events at a local restaurant & brewery and it has given me such an appreciation of what it takes to plan events of all sizes. Growing up, I got to be in so many weddings, including both my mom's and dad's, and I fell absolutely in love with them. Watching my family members celebrate their special day was truly unforgettable and I couldn't be more excited to share this day with every couple I meet!
