Christina Mathews ~ Founder and Lead Wedding Planner  

Thank you for stopping by. I am the petite (big) heart and soul behind  A Beautiful Day  by Christina. Every day, I say that I have the best job in  the world.  I am so incredibly blessed to  work with some of the sweetest people . . . my couples. It is truly an honor to take part in their special day and experience all the  joy, excitement and sometimes craziness with them. The fact  that I have a career that  I am so passionate about is something I consider a true blessing, and I am so grateful to pour my heart into each couples wedding and  marriage every day. 

Although born and raised in New England, I have a Southern soul and live happily in the Triad  of North Carolina with the love of my life, Stephen.  He is my best friend and constant source of encouragement. I  truly could not  be in this business without his love and support.

"There are so many things about planning a wedding that make me happy. I love meeting new couples, getting to know their personalities, and helping them to put their dream wedding together. There is nothing more rewarding than being part of such a happy day that will be remembered for generations."

My Favorite Things ~ Cross Stitching, and browsing Antique and Consignment shops on the weekend with my hubby.

Becky Hartzog ~ Officiate & Ordained Minister

As an ordained Christian minister, I retired from Wake Forest University after fifteen years as one of the university chaplains. I have over thirty years of experience working on college campuses as a chaplain and campus minister. It was through officiating at the weddings of numerous alumni, friends, and family members that I came to realize how much I enjoy assisting couples on one of the happiest days of their lives. I have had the privilege of travelling to a variety of destinations to participate in the marriage ceremonies of a number of special couples, even though I am based in the triad area of North Carolina. I would love to work with you to plan the wedding ceremony of your dreams. My philosophy when it comes to weddings is that it is YOUR wedding, not mine. I would be honored to assist you in making your wedding the most special day possible.

Mary Ann Ramsey ~ Officiate and Ordained Minister

In my vocation as a hospital chaplain, I was often asked to officiate for weddings, commitment ceremonies and vow renewals for staff, patients and friends. I have always cherished the opportunities to participate in these special occasions. After retiring from hospital administration in chaplaincy services, I realized I wanted to continue to be a part of this happiest of times for couples, assisting in the planning and realization of a truly unique and memory filled celebration. Whether you are looking for a Secular, Christian or Non-denominational ceremony I look forward to providing you with a ceremony that is a celebration of your love and devotion and all your hopes and dreams for the future.

I lived in central Florida for many years before relocating to North Carolina to be closer to my family. I enjoy spending time with my three children, three grandchildren, four grand dogs and two grand cats. I also enjoy reading and traveling, especially spending time near the ocean. I look forward to meeting you, learning more about your beautiful stories of life and love, and sharing with you in your joyful celebration.
