We had the good fortune of connecting with Christian Stringfellow and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Christian, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
The thought process behind Christian & Co. was to create a lux event design company that specializes in small events to large over the top weddings. It was a desire to connect with clients and turn their black and white dreams into colorful realities as they see their visions come to life. The smiles on their faces when entering their events was all the inspiration that I needed to launch my dream company. I wanted to give others the glam and chicness that I know that they deserve on the days that mean the most to them.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
I pride myself on precise planning, timely execution and flawless effort – these are the marquee trademarks for Christian & Co. I am extremely proud to have clients who trust me year after year to plan their special milestones. To witness my clients go from brides to mothers is an amazing feeling and I am honored to be chosen year after year.

Starting this business took dedication and there were definitely times when raising a family and being an entrepreneur wasn’t easy, but i was constantly motivated by my family and friends to not give up.
I have definitely learned along the way not to be afraid to ask for advice and to lean on my tribe when needed.
I would like the world to know that you can be a mommy, wife and still own your business and brand.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
My best friend knows that I absolutely love a great brunch and lounge. So in the morning we would go to Breakfast at Barneys to check out the scene and the amazing food, particularly my favorite is the yard bird (chicken & waffles). Then we would go shopping at the Shoppes of Buckhead and pull up to a few of my favorite Atlanta Boutiques. While in Buckhead we would have lunch at Le’Colonial,, the views are outstanding. From there we would take a stroll on the beltline and intentionally end up getting some drinks at the James Room. At some point we would have to squeeze in a light desert, chocolate covered strawberries from Pordow Chocolates of course. After relaxing we would finish the night at Rock Steady, where I just love the art and music.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I have a strong group of young entrepreneur friends that constantly motivate, push and refer me. Each individual pours into me in different ways that keep me excited about every challenge that comes my way. I would love to shout out an amazing videographer, Marcus Robinson of Favor3dpro for his invaluable contributions for my events. He constantly provides amazing memories for my clients. His service, reliability and friendship has helped take Christian & co to new heights.
