Wedding & Event Planner
“You have such an easy going vibe about you that keeps me calm and I am truly enjoying all your ideas and energy! I’m glad we were connected and can’t wait for the wedding!”
Chrissie has a fun DreamGroup story in that she joined our team in 2010 as a Wedding Day Assistant and after a couple years supporting our weddings and events decided to pursue other adventures. Six years later we welcomed Chrissie back in 2018 to share her talents and experiences with the DreamGroup team and our clients. With almost 20 years of experience in the film and television industry, Chrissie has an abundance of talents and experience in planning and producing all calibres and styles of events.
From film premieres and wrap parties, to private events held at select film festivals — including the notorious Cannes & Sundance Film Festivals — Chrissie’s planning experiences are vast and filled with awesome stories and colorful people! “I’m never intimidated by high expectations or big ideas! I love thinking about how to up the ante and make an event really stand out.”
Chrissie lived the LA scene for 7 years where she attended Film School & worked in daytime Television (Days of our Lives & The Young and the Restless). “Planning weddings and private events is my passion and where I am afforded the opportunity to incorporate both my love of bringing together families and couples in celebration of their commitment with my passion for producing incredibly memorable experiences!”
Chrissie adores unique, creative events & wedding plans where couples are looking to do something authentic and nontraditional! “I also LOVE DIY projects so bring them on!”
Chrissie is the President and Founder of Ellecee Legado Foundation – a non-for-profit focused on the beautiful country and people of El Salvador where her husband is from.
Some of Chrissie’s Favourite Venues: The Blackbird Public House Hospitality Suite, The Permanent, The Polygon Gallery, The Commodore
On Her Mind… “I am most relaxed in San Diego, my soul is fed in El Salvador but more than anything my favorite place is wherever the beach meets the ocean and I get to be with my husband and daughter.”

Words of Thanks…
My husband and I worked with Chrissie from DreamGroup for our joint 50th birthday party. From day one, Chrissie was phenomenal. Great energy, super positive and excellent execution. We could not have asked for more from a party planner and believe me, we had a lot of requests and different vendors that needed to be coordinated and timed. The party was a super success and we are so grateful to Chrissie for all her hard work. Would use her again in a heartbeat, highly highly recommend her and DreamGroup!!
