Kristina launched her career as an advertising and marketing consultant in 2007 when she had the opportunity to be part of a startup magazine. From the building of business relationships for advertising and printing, graphic and website design as well as development and maintenance; the tremendous industry knowledge and skillset that she developed afforded her the opportunity to collaborate with her local community. Kristina’s experiences during that time are what facilitated her realization that she had a passion for helping small businesses with their systems, processes, and marketing efforts. In the years since, she has sharpened her skillset and become an expert in the industry offering business/marketing coaching, virtual showcases, marketing services and classes.
Beyond her immense marketing knowledge, Kristina went to school for her Microsoft Certified Solutions Engineer (MCSE). She uses her experience in IT and offers her specialized experience in website creation, streamlining systems and processes, understanding analytics, optimizing SEO and thoroughly understands all the facets of digital marketing that allow for online success.
Although Kristina’s vision has narrowed to helping wedding professionals, she remains sought out by business owners across a multitude of industries. Kristina’s work amongst the wedding industry started alongside a local DJ in the early 2000’s. The work she did then became a steppingstone for working with a local venue assisting with wedding planning and other event details. Being a change agent and a connector, Kristina has merged all the things she loves most - coaching, systems and processes, digital marketing and events and dived deep into the wedding industry in 2020 starting a globally ranked podcast that offers digestible and implementable systems, processes, and marketing tips to wedding professional and wedding planning tips to engaged couples. After months of meeting and interviewing wedding professionals and engaged couples and listening to their pain points, the plan for an all-encompassing online wedding community was implemented... The Ring The Bling And All The Things Online Community!
Kristina feels privileged to own and operate numerous brands and businesses with her loving husband, Josh Stubblefield who has shared her passion for results and serving the businesses that make up the heart of any community. They are supported by an amazing team who believes in them and their joint mission to provide genuine feedback (real talk) , superior results and proven solutions - the foundation of any successful business.
Outside of work, Kristina enjoys spending time with family, her four fur babies, being involved in her family’s stock car racing business as well as the rare moments of downtime.
Kristina is a proud member of the Association of Bridal Consultants and The St. Matthew’s Chamber of Commerce. She is a frequent philanthropic practitioner and volunteers her time and talents for multiple local non-profits.
A well known name in the event industry, Michael Gaddie, is a proud member of AIFD (American Institute of Floral Designers – an International organization). After starting his floral career in 1989, Michael went to work for Lloyd’s Florist, a full service floral shop offering décor and gifts. Michael and his wife, Pam, purchased the business in 2000. He has been bringing the bling to weddings and other events for over 30 years. Having enjoyed a very successful career in the floral industry, Michael has been the recipient of several awards over the years, highlights of which include… Kentucky Designer of the Year and 2020 Sweepstakes Award in the Rose Parade, where he has been a designer for 20 years. Although best known for his creativity and eye for design, what most love about Michael is his huge heart, ridiculous sense of humor and over the top work ethic. Michael and his wife Pam are also an elite partner of Jim’s formal wear in Louisville, Ky.
Michael is currently the president of the Louisville Wedding Network, Past-President of Kentucky Florist Association and has held many other offices in professional organizations including Past-President of Teleflora Kentucky Derby Unit and Past-President of Southern Retail Florist Association.
Michael has been married to his bride, Pam for 30 years and has an awesome son, Ryan Michael. They also have 3 cats: Lucy, Rosie and Derby.
Sharon Rumsey caught the wedding planning bug while attending events with her husband Ron, a local DJ. A natural at organization, logistics, multi-tasking and bringing people together, Sharon began planning weddings in addition to a full-time job in health care in 2013. Sharon took all the training she could find, shadowed every event planner that would talk to her, and picked the brain of every wedding professional she knew. While dreams of starting her own company were put on the backburner for several years, a health scare soon made her realize that life is too short to keep dreams on hold. So, with a lot of prayers and support from an amazing family, A Perfect Plan Events became a full-time business in 2018. Since that time Sharon has been blessed to share the planning journey with many happy couples. Her favorite moments of wedding day include…. the first look, the toasts, and the father daughter dance (she still cries every time). However, nothing beats that moment she has alone with her bride before she takes that first step down the aisle. She knows she is right where she belongs.
Sharon is a proud member of the Association of Bridal Consultants (both Indiana and Kentucky chapters), serves on the Board of the Louisville Wedding Network, member of the St. Matthews Chamber of Commerce and is Timeline Genius Certified.
Sharon is the proud mom of 2 amazing men and one huge goldendoodle, Gus.
