The hive

Beehive Creative began out of a desire to create meaningful, romantic, timeless celebrations designed as a unique reflection of each couple. The signature beehive branding serves as a nod to the "hive" of talented vendors it takes to bring a wedding day to life, and the queen bee who orchestrates it all from start to finish.

KRISTEN SMITH WINTERS

Owner & Creative Director

As a wedding enthusiast forever inspired by coastal beauty, I consider Maine the most stunning backdrop to any celebration. In fact, my personal connection with the midcoast region is what drew me from Florida to Maine, where I’ve planned and designed one-of-a-kind weddings for the past 9 years.

I often work with destination clients from elsewhere who share a connection to Maine, with memories of beach days, campfire nights, and endless summer adventure. They envision an elegant wedding day filled with personal touches, and there’s nothing I love more than overseeing an event so you can be fully present for each and every moment.

It's such a privilege to walk alongside couples from engagement to marriage, and I can’t wait to hear everything you’ve envisioned for your Maine-set wedding.

GET TO KNOW KRISTEN

Prior to my career in weddings, I earned my master’s degree in clinical psychology and worked with adolescents and family systems—all of which comes in handy when balancing potential wedding stressors.

While I love traveling the world (ask me about my trip to Africa!), there’s nothing more special than time spent with my husband, daughter, and our sweet rescue dog.

I've never met a design dilemma that can’t be solved, and I consider creative direction to be one of the best parts of my job.

When I'm not in wedding planning mode, you'll often find me dancing at a local zumba, ballet, or modern dance class.
