Get Hitched Give Hope is made possible by the hard work of volunteers from the Seattle wedding community (and a few outside the wedding industry). Without them, we would not be able to pull off such an amazing event on October 27th! Christopher Smith is our fearless leader of the Marketing & PR team. When he is not designing gorgeous flowers for weddings, Christopher is working round the clock to promote Get Hitched Give Hope. Thank you Christopher!!!
When you are not volunteering with Get Hitched Give Hope, what do you do?
I am a floral designer for weddings, parties, and events. I started Christopher Flowers in 2003.
What I love most about my work is talking with my clients, meeting with them at their venue, looking at colors and types of flowers together, then going back to my studio and designing a unique look for their special event. Equally exciting is the spontaneous creativity that happens later when I get the actual flowers in my hands and start making the arrangements.
Why did you get involved with Get Hitched Give Hope?
When the founders of the organization were first putting the idea together, Barbie Hull talked with me about participating and it just seemed like such an obviously wonderful event! I’m very happy to have been involved in some way from the beginning.
How are you involved with Get Hitched Give Hope this year?
This year I am excited to be serving as the VP of Marketing and PR, and am also a Board Member. We have an amazing team of folks working hard to get the word out about GHGH!
I am also donating an item to the silent auction this year: custom-designed flowers for your rehearsal dinner.
You have a pretty creative job. What inspires you?
I take my strongest inspiration from nature. I frequently am reminded that what we create can rarely compare with the beauty of the natural world, and strive to reflect that in my work.
Thank you Christopher! How can we get in touch with you?
