About Cristina Verger, Founder and President of Cristina Verger Event Planning and ProductionCristina Verger is a sought after wedding and event planner based in New York City. She is the driving force behind her company, Cristina Verger Event Planning and Production LLC, and an expert on private and corporate events and weddings. Bringing more than 25 years of experience to the table, she plans and executes events in the New York City metro area as well as in the Caribbean and Europe, with a focus on her home country Italy, where this event planning company has satellite offices in both Milan and Rome.
Born in Rome, Cristina grew up in a family of hoteliers and knew she wanted to work in the hospitality industry from a young age. After moving to New York City with her family when she was a teenager, she built up an impressive résumé working at some of the city’s most prestigious hospitality establishments.
Her strong background includes positions as the Director of Catering at the St. Moritz Hotel, then part of Helmsley Hotels, located on chic Central Park South. Subsequently, Cristina became Director of Catering at Windows on the World, the famous restaurant located at the top of the former 1 World Trade Center, and the World Trade Center Club. Following the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, Cristina moved on to become the first ever, and so far only, woman to head the private special events department at the renowned Harvard Club of New York City.
With a wealth of experience under her belt, she founded her first event planning company, Tasty Thoughts, in 2000 and re-branded the firm as Cristina Verger Event Planning and Production LLC in early 2012. Since then, Cristina has arranged hundreds of events while giving each and every one her full attention and personal touch from start to finish. Whether it's a surprise 50th birthday celebration in a swanky New York City hotel, a two-weekend wedding celebration spanning two continents, an intimate dinner for ten overlooking the Hudson, or a celebrity golf tournament in Westchester, Cristina’s style, vision, and connections create unforgettable events for her clients. With her hard-earned expertise, she can tackle even the most challenging hurdles -- including hurricanes, blackouts, and strikes -- ensuring that nothing will get between her clients and their special day.
