Today we’d like to introduce you to Christina Logan.
Hi Christina, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
I started out by working in an art gallery about 14 years ago and loved the openings for artists. Then I went on to manage a wine tasting room where I also worked with small events on the grounds. That’s when I knew I wanted to do events for the client, go to different venues, create new experiences and aesthetics to make a lasting moment in time.
Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
Nope! When I started, I had to get a regular 9-5 job so I was free on weekends to work events for myself/my client. And I started by making almost nothing! But I remember being so excited to just be paid to do something I wanted and to make the rules, it felt amazing. And then just two years later, we moved to Nashville and I had to start all over! It was hard, not knowing anyone in a city and starting again, but it was totally worth it and the people that I work within Nashville are kind and genuine! There are many days of doubt and not feeling like you get what you’re worth, and navigating those waters is endless. 2020 in general was a difficult time for our industry, and 2021 is still making up for that. But most of the time, I wouldn’t trade it in the world!
We’ve been impressed with Christina Logan Design, but for folks who might not be as familiar, what can you share with them about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
We are a wedding and event planning boutique business. I am involved in all of our events and am very hands on. Most of our work is in weddings, but we also have done other events in the music industry here in Nashville. I like to think that I am known for caring about my clients, keeping their best interests at the focus of the planning process and being able to bring together both a fluid event and an aesthetically beautiful experience. While we do aim towards a high-end events, we also do small pop-ups for businesses and can work in long or short time-frames.
Risk taking is a topic that people have widely differing views on – we’d love to hear your thoughts.
Oh gosh, I think that anyone who starts their own business is a risk taker!! You are trusting in yourself to be reliable and counting on no one to come through for you – that is risky. Leaving behind someone else paying you to think you have the ability to be unique enough that people will like your product and pay you for it. It’s terrifying because if you fail, you could have a big blank on your resume. In daily life, not sure I’m a risk-taker, I’m a planner! So I do really love organization and goals. But I’m also a dreamer, big time, so you have to risk a little to see some of those dreams.
