About Krista

 

To describe myself in a few words I am a high energy, fun loving, enthusiastic and positive individual. These characteristics combined with a Masters of Science Degree in Communications/Public Relations from Walden University, Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration with a concentration in Marketing from Clark Atlanta University and a National Certification in Event Planning (CEP) and Event Design (CED) from Correlations LLC., I am prepared to plan any event with style, class, and a high level of professionalism. I enjoy adding a fresh new creative design execution to any event executed. 

I knew early in life that I would have a creative career path.  I graduated from Tri-cities Visual and Performing Arts High School with a great understanding of artistry, style, creativity and eclecticism. Deciding to become an Event Planner paired perfectly with my creativity, vision, organizational skills, and background in the arts.  I feel ultimate joy when plans come together to create an event that is both special and memorable. 

In business since 2013, I have made it my priority to put client's needs first. I love every aspect of my career. Witnessing the final result of an event and the smile on my client's faces is the reward!  My clients trust me to skillfully handle their budget, to select the right venue, the best entertainment, florists, rental materials, fabric selections and caterer for their special day.  We specialize in logistics on the planning side and detail on the design side! Both aspects take strategy. Busy professionals, don't have time to worry about all the details. That is my job and I am overjoyed to do it.  I am hired by professionals everyday to make sure that their event meets and exceeds their expectations. I have the ability and skills to take your concept and create it into a custom artful affair!  Often larger than the client would’ve ever imagined!  I mean think about it, we all love music, but how many of us can truly sing? It's my job to make your event sing a tune that your friends, family, or colleagues will never forget! It's all in the details!

Krista D. Long

CEO, Lead Certified Event Planner & Designer

Hello! My name is Jasmine and I am the Special Events Coordinator and Manager here at Krista’s Event Koncepts LLC. Events have been a passion of mine ever since I can remember. I even used to be a part of the planning process for all my birthday parties growing up and became the designated Planner for all my family’s events. To put it lightly, planning and event design has become a special part of my life. Over the years, I have aided in the execution of numerous events through multiple Church Organizations & Universities such as Family Christian Center in California & Cal Poly Pomona to name a few.

 

I joined the Krista’s Event Koncepts team while attending Clark Atlanta University. As an Intern in 2019, I was able to expound on my industry knowledge as a professional Event Planner. It was a great introduction into the industry I loved so much. When my internship assignment ended I was immediately promoted to Personal Event Planner & Design Assistant. Now, 3 years in,  I am the Special Events Coordinator & Manager here. My experience, combined with my Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Administration from CAU, gives me confidence that I can make your special event one to remember.

“ Moments come and go, but memories last forever.” 

It is a pleasure to have the opportunity to be a part of your special event!
