About Kristine Smith Designs

Committed to Excellence

Kristine Smith Designs is a one-stop resource for unique, beautifully designed, and expertly executed events. Based in San Diego, we have worked with clients in the San Diego area since 2020. With close partnerships with top vendors, we pride ourselves on crafting exceptional events that are not easily forgotten. Kristine first started into the wedding industry in 2002 in Central California as co-founder of Absolute Kouture events. In 2020 while planning her own wedding in the midst of a global pandemic and navigating the complexities of a mid-pandemic wedding, Kristine felt drawn back in to help couples navigating the challenging of wedding planning.


Following her graduation with her doctorate from USC in 2021, Kristine decided to launch back into weddings and finds great joy walking alongside couples through such an important time in their lives. Kristine has extensive expertise in event planning, coordination, floral design, and full-scale wedding and event planning. 


At Kristine Smith Designs our design-savvy, passionate team excels at interpreting your vision and ideas, seamlessly bringing them to life. From logistics and lighting to entertainment and hors d'oeuvres, we take care of every detail. Go ahead and enjoy - we’ve got it covered.
