Transforming dreams into reality...

About Keli Christenson

Keli Christenson ~ Founder / Designer / Certified Wedding & Event Planner

As founder of Monarch Weddings, I’m genuinely dedicated to transforming your dream wedding into a reality. With 8 years of corporate event experience and 10 years as a wedding coordinator with one of San Diego’s most prestigious wedding planners, I honed my detailed event management, organizational and creative skills before launching Monarch Weddings in 2012.  With several years of industry experience, I’m an event professional with a calming confidence who is prepared with innovative ideas and invaluable resources.

I’m an energetic hopeless romantic who has passion for helping others and love the creative process of event design and planning. I bring years of industry knowledge, creative talent, helpful insight, passion and commitment to each of my weddings & events providing a stress-free planning experience and an extraordinary wedding day!

To further expand my wedding & event management skills and knowledge, I obtained a certificate in Event Management from USD in 2011.

I’m blessed to be doing what I love!  Guiding couples through this exciting time of their life together and helping them create their dream wedding is an honor.  One of my favorite moments of a wedding day is to bring my couples into their reception before guests enter so that they can experience it through the eyes of their guests –  I love seeing their excited reactions (often times moved to tears of joy) when they see their vision come to life. Knowing I had an instrumental role in helping them achieve their dream is so rewarding – it’s the reason I love what I do! “ ~ Keli
