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.





Kristy Concepcion  ~ Planner/Coordinator,  Designer, Officiate

Hello and congratulations on your engagement! What an amazing adventure you are about to embark on.

I’m sure you’re wondering what my credentials are, so here’s a small snippet of my background. I grew up in Indiana, earned my Bachelor’s degree in Interior Design from Purdue University, and became a licensed Interior Designer in Florida for eight years. Over the years my passion for design started transitioning from designing homes to designing parties and events and specifically weddings. To date, I have over 15 years of combined corporate and private event planning and hosting experience.  

How does this translate into helping you with your wedding day? Well, let me start by saying every love story is special and different from the next. As a designer my job is to create a cohesive atmosphere for your wedding that represents you as an individual and as a couple. This is your day and it should be unique; just like your love story.

My job as your coordinator is to ensure that all of your plans and details are executed smoothly for a stress-free wedding day.  You've worked so hard on wedding-day details that when it’s finally time to walk down the aisle; I want you to be able to immerse yourself in the day with your loved ones and not miss a moment.

I can’t wait to hear from you and help you create your perfect wedding that is uniquely you.

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.
