Krista is the owner and creative master-mind at Blue Eyed Yonder. A staple in the South’s event scene, Blue Eyed Yonder specializes in one-of-a-kind, boutique rentals, styling and set design. With an ever-growing inventory, hand-selected and sourced throughout the country, she’ll bargain, haggle and swap stories with the best of ‘em.

An old soul with a penchant for sentimental details, Krista’s love of antiques comes as no surprise. Born to a large family of collectors, she grew up on the hot pavement of flea markets across the South. This experience not only taught her to cherish antiques, but sparked in her an appreciation for the often untold story that each piece holds. She enjoys looking at each piece and imagining the people that once owned it, what they must have been like, where they might have lived.

As a way of sharing her passion for collecting with others, Krista also offers antique sourcing and curated antiquing retreats where attendees shop hand-in-hand with her as she shares insider tips of antique + prop shopping.

Krista’s work has been featured in a variety of magazines and sites such as Southern Weddings Magazine, Cottage Hill, Magnolia Rouge, Utterly Engaged, Trouvé, Weddings Unveiled, Martha Stewart’s Bride’s Guide, Once Wed, Snippet and Ink, Style Me Pretty, 100 Layer Cake, Grey Likes Weddings, Elle Decor among others.

Krista lives in Marietta, GA with her husband, Chris, and sweet pup, Dottie Mae.
