Life & Work with Christine Tierra

Today we’d like to introduce you to Christine Tierra. Them and their team share their story with us below:

Christine has been in the event industry for many years, planning everything from high-class weddings to smaller social events, particularly specializing in unique eye-catching events. She is passionate and committed to helping people, in and out of her professional life, she is always finding herself in the middle of planning fun and memorable events for the people closest to her.

Christine graduated with honors from The University of Houston, obtaining her bachelor’s degree in Hotel & Restaurant Management with an emphasis in Event Management. She has leveraged her experience working with other well-known wedding planners in Houston (such as Piper and Muse, Grayhouse Events) and has several years of experience in non-profit organizations (such as the University of Houston, College of Technology) that shaped her unique coordination style and approach to planning.

With several years of combined experience in Event Planning, Christine decided to launch Houston Soiree, a wedding and event planning company, in February of this year. Christine had fallen in love with the aesthetic of European cities during her recent visit to Venice, France, and Amsterdam and decided to incorporate that European flair into her passion and company. The word “soiree” derives from the French word “soir” meaning “an evening” or “night” and just fits the overall nature of what they do as a company: planning and executing memorable events, which majority of the time happens late in the evening. The company is based in Houston but services events all around Texas, from Austin, San Antonio, and Dallas.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not, what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
Absolutely Not! There were several people (professors, close family, old colleagues) that discouraged me from doing and pursuing my career in the Events Industry and it’s a constant struggle to hear that negativity and judgment from people. However, I am thankful for all the wonderful people out there, including my husband, Garret Hohman, who supported me and wants nothing more than to see me and my company succeed. I’m also so grateful to all my brides and their families for putting their trust in me and our team to be a part of their special day. I would have not been where I am today without each one of them mentoring, encouraging, and helping me build this company from the ground up.

Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I specialize in planning and coordinating different events from Weddings, Birthdays, Showers, Milestone, Holidays, Corporate, and more. We offer several packages from Month of Coordination, Partial Planning, Full-Service Planning, to custom-A La Carte packages that can cater to everyone(s) needs. We personalize diverse events for each client and handle stressful event situations with grace. We love to create and customize the perfect theme, event designs (from your florals, invitations, color palette, place settings, decor, etc.) and pay close attention to detail and structured logistical event flow. By harnessing our passion for events, hundreds of wedding planning experiences, resilience, and natural abilities to connect with others, we understand clients’ visions and bring meaningful events to life with ease.

What sets us apart? I always go above and beyond for all my clients and always put their own needs before ours. I look out for what is in their best interest and am always willing to jump into action when I see a problem that needs to be fixed. I am known to my clients, friends, families, and vendors as someone who does more than what is needed of me, and I think putting that extra effort into everything I do just shows our core value as a company and how I handle our day-to-day business. I take the greatest satisfaction in seeing everyone happy and am always grateful for all the couples who have entrusted and given us the opportunity to make this happen.

Alright, so to wrap up, are there any wedding planning tips you’d like to share with us and future brides?
Wedding/Event planning isn’t a race to the end of the finish line. Yes, there’s a wedding boom for next year with all the COVID wedding postponement but keep in mind that you’re going to work with who you’re meant to work with. Our piece of advice to wedding couples is to please take your time, enjoy the process without the added pressure of feeling like you have to do everything on your own. Hire a Month of Coordinator or a Wedding Planner like us to help you when you’re overwhelmed.
