#LLSTORY - Kristina Fisher

This weeks #LocalLegendsStory comes from Kristina Fisher of KLF Weddings. Kristina is a ball of energy and we can't wait to see where she goes with her new business venture! 

"Hey! My name is Kristina Fisher and I'm the owner of KLF Weddings. I am a WPIC certified wedding planner and all-around wedding fanatic. I was born in Bermuda but have called PEI home for almost 20 years now. Island living is in my blood! If that's not good enough, I married an islander, so that at least makes me honorary, right?!

Having just recently moved back to PEI after a year-long stint in Alberta, I'm so excited to see how my little island has grown. Living "away" allowed me to fully appreciate the island and how unique it is. I feel so blessed to call the island home and to be putting down roots here with my business! It truly is amazing to see how our communities are welcoming and supporting budding entrepreneurs and I'm honoured to join the growing list of local entrepreneurs follow their dreams. 

As a kid, I spent my summers in Maine... and why didn't anyone tell me what I was missing out on?! Like many, summer is my favourite season on the island. The amazing fresh produce, the beautiful skies, the serene Victoria Park Boardwalk and the welcoming beaches are a few of my favourite things. I can think of few things I love more than relaxing on the deck at the cottage on a warm summer day. 

I love every stage of the wedding planning process from designing to "I do!" and being a part of the beginning of a couple's next chapter. I am a die-hard romantic, so what could be better than helping couples achieve the epitome of love and romance?! I am thrilled to have gotten my certification so I can now better serve my couples through the knowledge and resources gained through WPIC. I am a DIY junkie and you'll often find me at Michael's picking up supplies for my next project with my hands covered in paint or hot glue burns. I come from an entrepreneurial family and always knew I wanted to be my own boss, but it wasn't until the year I spent planning my own wedding that I knew it was my true calling. With the push of some very supportive and encouraging family members and friends already in the industry, I took the leap and haven't looked back. 

If I have one regret about my own wedding day, it's that I didn't have a minute to sit and take it all in. It was truly (as cliche as it sounds!) the best day of my life, and in an instant it was gone. I want to be a resource for couples that allows them to enjoy the wedding planning process, and makes sure they can actually soak in every last second of their wedding day. I want to take away your stress, be your cheerleader and help you envision your#weddinggoals! It's such a huge event in your life, and you deserve to have everything go off without a hitch without having to be the one to worry about if the florist is going to be late or it rains on your outdoor venue. Leave the stress to me, and just celebrate your love!

<3 Kristina"
