Meet Christy

All throughout my life, helping others has been my specialty. My friends call me the generous one and that I should say “No” every once in a while, but the thing is, I enjoy it! No matter the cause, I will be there in the action making sure everything is going as planned. For that’s what I do – I plan.

“Plan what,” you ask? Anything and everything.

My life, my career, my house, dinner the next day…the list could go on. However, I will not bore you with that. ;) After all, you are reading this because you have something more personal to plan – your wedding!

I find wedding’s very exciting. The moment where the groom stands at the altar nervous as all, awaiting to see his future wife walk out in the purest color gown. In awe, I pause from the chaos and remember that is the moment why I plan weddings. Who knew taking something so precious could remind me of my calling – a wedding planner.

My name is Christy O’Neal Hooker and I am the owner and wedding planner for Events by Truly Yours. I opened this company 5 years ago after working for a venue out in Richmond, Virginia for many years prior. Many of my inspirations came from my time there, but opening my own company has always been a passion of mine.

While running a business is not the easiest of tasks, God blessed me with my husband, Bryan Hooker, who has his masters degree in Business Marketing. Yes, it was an answer to prayer that we found each other! Just like it was God’s blessing that you are with your better half as well!

Please come back each week to hear about the love stories of our fellow brides, DIY how-to’s, and even a little wedding planning inspiration.
