Crystal Corbin is no stranger to planning events. For five years, she worked as an event manager and marketing manager for various nonprofits, planning design and execute fundraisers as well as helping them with their social media presences.
Her love affair with planning weddings began five years ago with the first wedding she planned. In 2016 she decided to branch out to planning events on her own, and on March 11, her Fairfield, Ohio-based party planning and designing business, The Crystal Collection, will officially launch. The Crystal Collection will primarily work in Ohio, southern Michigan, and northern Kentucky, as well as destination events.
The Crystal Collection plans and designs weddings, showers, “sophisticated” birthdays, and photo shoots. Corbin describes the feel of events planned by The Crystal Collection as “sensual” and “sexy,” explaining that the events have an aura that “align with intimacy and sensuality,” blending those aspects with sophistication and femininity. “We love all things burgundy, lace, and floral! Lots of floral!”
As the owner and lead designer of The Crystal Collection, Corbin hopes that potential clients understand the importance of having a planner, especially a good one who can execute your vision well. Planning an event is an enormous undertaking, and it can be stressful to organize every aspect, especially for someone untrained in event planning. Corbin knows that many people think event and wedding planners are expensive and not important enough to justify the cost, but that the work planners do is vital to any well-executed event. The Crystal Collection aims to provide customers with the feeling of planning their wedding with someone who wants to get to know them personally so they can have a unique event experience.
“With the Crystal Collection, we hope to provide a unique and intimate experience with planning their special days, whether it’s a birthday celebration or an engagement party,” Corbin says to explain what sets The Crystal Collection apart from other event planning businesses and why potential clients should choose her business. “All events are special. We bring a huge flare of design and appearance that compliments our client’s personality.”
