Certified Wedding and Event Specialist

Leaving an impression on someone!



My name is CHRISTI CLINGAN, owner of Unique Event Designs. I am a:

  • Senior Event Designer, Stylist, and Decorator;

  • Certified Travel Agent;

  • Certified Minister;

  • Event Photographer.


My heart shines brighter than the sun, and I love giving advice and guidance concerning all types of events, not only to clients but to family and friends. I have the spirit of a Spartan warrior when creating a unique event. I believe it is a GOD-given talent, and I use my abilities to assist my fellow man (or woman).

As I approach my 25th year in this fantastic Industry of Weddings and Events, I understand the changing trends. Because of this, my continuing education with the world-renowned Event Planner DAVID TUTERA has shown me the importance of the 'Planner-Client Relationship' and how to be bold in my business.


I am "Standing Up, Stepping Foward, and Standing Out" to show you how I differ from others in the Event Industry.

Events Big and Small

My team will travel wherever your heart desires to produce an event that tells the story with every one of your senses (Soda Pop Effect)  that continues well past when the guests have left your event.

Whether we represent a family, an item, an organization, or a reason; our work grasps encounters that incorporate an inventive plan with the best in wine and mixed drinks, eating, music, diversion, and—most vital of all—that immaterial component of shock.

I have celebrated all types of events in my personal and professional life, and I've felt the worry and stress that comes with planning any type of event. So, I know where some of my clients might be coming from.

I was a bride too!

MY WEDDING: I killed my car y'all, and had to replace it, right before the wedding! When it was all said and done, it went by so fast! I felt I had missed out on something important...


I realized that I wanted to help others, by creating an experience that was relaxing, joyful, and intriguing, and allowing my clients to experience the relationship and bonding time associated with some of the most influential moments in a person's life.

I am now an event designer with the education and experience to assist you in your event.
