the story

In 2001, after spending the first 10 years of her career in advertising, public relations and corporate event planning, Christine Campbell Hoffer followed her dream and passion for event planning and opened the doors of Belle of the Ball. Belle of the Ball quickly became Houston’s very first premier wedding planning boutique firm and now boasts over 50 years of combined event planning experience. That same passion that inspired the creation of Belle of the Ball is shared by the six consultants that make up the Belle of the Ball team, also known as "The Belles." Over the last 11 years, Belle of the Ball has evolved from a wedding planning firm to one that also plans and executes debutante balls, private parties, children’s parties and corporate events.

We believe that a wedding weekend, like any major production, requires a blend of inspiration, talent, precision planning and the best available resources. At the heart of our success are our longstanding collaborative relationships with a network of cutting-edge florists, caterers, photographers and other wedding professionals here in Houston.

Unlike most one-person operations, we are one of the only boutique wedding consultation firms that can actually place multiple consultants to orchestrate your event if required. Now outfitted with a larger staff, the company is broadening its scope to encompass larger corporate and private events. Whatever your specific needs may be or wherever you are in the planning process for your wedding or special event, please contact the office by phone or e-mail to schedule your complimentary consultation today!
