Arden’s relationship with the team at It’s a “Shore” Thing began during her employment at Seaside. While working together on events – they realized that they shared the same passion for the industry, which led to Arden’s decision to join the team! Her 7 years of experience and established relationships in the wedding & events industry have proven to be assets to the team.

Her genuine southern charm and calming demeanor provide a sense of ease to every event.

Christie joined the It’s a “Shore” Thing team in January of 2014 when Jen stumbled upon her while rehabilitating her broken ankle. It was Christie’s attention to detail and customer service skills that led Jen to believe that Christie would be a true asset to the IST team. She is super organized and will make the wedding planning a fun and memorable experience! She approaches each wedding as a unique event – and, considering her upbringing in New Orleans, she definitely knows how to throw a great party! Her clients rave about her sense of calmness throughout the planning as well as on event days!

Guilty Pleasures: dark chocolate w/ sea salt, the beach, music festivals, The Red Sox, Netflix-binging, and her 2 golden retrievers {Avery & Landry}!
