Meet My Team

Christina ~

 It not very often in life that you can turn something you love to do into a true calling, but that is exactly what I have had the privilege of doing. I began what I call a "labor of love" in 2005 on the gulf coast of Florida  and truly believe I  have the best job in the world!  My philosophy is simple; to provide an atmosphere that is both sacred and celebratory; one in which every  couple can feel comfortable and relaxed while making their vows.

On a personal note, I have been happily married to my best friend, Stephen for fifteen wonderful years. He brings joy and laughter into my life  each and everyday. Fun Fact: we were married by someone like myself which was the catalyst and inspiration for me to start this business in the first place.

As my business has grown over the past several years so has my need to find dedicated professionals who have a love for people in love as much as I do. I am proud to say that I have assembled what I believe to be the finest ensemble of officiates, ministers, photographers and other wedding professionals in the business. Each one of these individuals bring not only their expertise and professionalism to my business but a genuine love and heart for this very special profession. 

 

 

Officiates / Ministers

Chris TolletteChristine Tollette ~ Officiate and Ordained Minister    

Back in the early 1980's I started doing wedding videos and have been  doing weddings and events just about ever since in some form or fashion. For the pasted 10 years, I have been coordinating/planning weddings and in the last 5 years officiating weddings. It's not a job...its an honor to help our couples have the best experience they can with Weddings by Christina. I am an Ordained Minister and Licensed Notary Public in the State of Florida and perform both civil and religious ceremonies. Because I have organized so many weddings and large charity fund raisers, it has given me the experience to deal with any issues seamlessly.

Reverend Andy Mason ~ Ordained Minister and Officiate 

I recently joined the "Weddings by Christina" team. I was born and raised in Ohio and relocated to the Sunshine State with my wife (34 years) and our four children. I am an ordained Minister with 35 years of experience of ministering to individuals and families. I currently serve as the Preaching Minister of an non-denominational church in Seminole, FL.  As a transplanted Midwesterner,  I appreciate the beauty of the local beaches more than many, and I understand how important it is that your ceremony match your surroundings.   I enjoy working with couples to personalize each ceremony to make it as memorable and meaningful as possible. I love adding a touch of humor to enhance the joy of the moment and put the couple and any guests at ease.

Reverend Tom Hartman ~ Ordained Minister and Officiate 

I absolutely love weddings! I’ve been in ministry for 21 years and over those years I have had many opportunities to officiate weddings. It is without a doubt one of the greatest joys for me! I’ve been married for 27 years, raised 2 beautiful daughters, and can honestly say that every year with my sweetie gets better than the year before. I’ve seen first-hand how amazing being married is and I love getting to be a part of helping others as they start their journey together. Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life and should be one that you’ll never forget. I enjoy working with the bride and groom to make sure the day is perfect. It is always my goal to work with you and create a ceremony that will allow your love for one another to be front and center. I’m a pretty laid back kind of guy who loves to make people smile, laugh and will work hard to help you relax and enjoy every moment. I am so thankful that God has created in me a passion for marriages and I look forward to making your day special!

Joe Glennon, Officiate and Ordained Minister  

In 2008 two of my closest friends got engaged. When they told me the news and asked me to officiate their wedding, I was especially honored as I was the one that introduced them to one another. Since that time, I have had the privilege to officiate many ceremonies for couples, including several friends and even family in different states. What I love about my job is the opportunity to work with couples at their happiest, where for a few moments, they let me into their world and I get to share in the joys of their marriage. With my abilities as an officiate I can make an enormous difference in people’s lives by giving them a ceremony that is memorable and one that they will treasure for years to come.

It is my desire to help you create a wedding ceremony that is unique to you relationship. Whether you chose a traditional ceremony or customize it with your own vows I am here to help you tailor your ceremony as you create a memory of a life time.

When I moved to Florida in 2009 I instantly fell in love with the stunning beaches and the year round warm weather. The slow pace and stress free environment here has helped me to embrace new hobbies and enjoy many outdoor activities. Here on the West Coast of Florida there are endless miles of beautiful beaches allowing you to choose your perfect destination to begin your life together as husband and wife.

Photographers/Videographers

Courtney Michelle Photography ~ Courtney Michelle Photography

I'm a wife and mother of two adorable rambunctious little boys. When I am not pretending to be superhero or kissing a scraped knee, I am watching love stories unfold through my lens. In 2010 I decided to make my passion a profession and launched my photography business. I love photographing people because sometimes it's the only way I know I have aged. As I have gotten older I appreciate each memory more. It think it is a special, organic and amazing process. I am lucky enough to watch it from the very beginning as I capture milestones and the every day escapades of my little boys. I photograph weddings with the same attitude; to capture the beginning of a special, organic and amazing bond that is blossoming into a beautiful love story. I would say I am a hopeless romantic (I won't tell you how many times I have watched the Notebook). So I love being able to tell a tiny part of the story through my photographs. I have a B.A. from USF and also studied photography at SPC. I love to travel, boating with my family and DIY projects. I can't wait to meet you and capture your love story.

I am a family man with 4 daughters. When I'm not changing diapers and taking care of screaming kids, I working tirelessly at my photography, videography, and photo booth business. Since graduating college with a B.A. in photojournalism from USF I have never had any other job other than dedicating my entire adult life as a professional wedding vendor. And over the last decade I have personally photographed over 800 weddings. My work and dedication speaks for itself.

  

Megan Hartman ~ meganreneephotography.comMegan

Most days you will find me curled up on the couch binging something on Netflix, cuddling my dog, and working away on my computer! If I'm not there, check the nearest Mexican restaurant or Dunkin Donuts, because I mean... duh. I am a Floridian at heart. Some of my favorite things are walking on the beach at sunset, drinking iced coffee from Starbucks and capturing real stories with my camera. I believe that I was created by my Creator to create and I am so grateful to be able to do that with photography.

When I decided to pursue photography, I went all in and attended Gardner-Webb University majoring in photography. There I refined my skills and found my deep passion for wedding photography specifically.

As a photographer, I am all about moments. Anyone can ask you to get in that totally awkward prom pose, but that's not what makes an AMAZING photograph! I want to capture you and your spouse on your wedding day just as you are and all the beautiful parts of it. I capture real moments between real people that will become lasting memories, treasured forever. On your special wedding day, we are going to laugh and share stories and create beautiful images together. My style is very bright, warm and moody. When you get your photos back you will see very raw photos that captured a moment and tell a story.

That's why I do this... to tell YOUR story, because it deserves to be told.

"Christina was great to work with. Planning a Florida beach wedding from Indiana would have been very difficult for us. Christina put everything together including the location, the officiant and the photographer as well as offering great ideas and additions to our ceremony. Every email was answered right away and each change was accommodated. Our ceremony was EXACTLY what we wanted. I highly recommend Weddings By Christina!"   ~   Read More »
