Christopher Confero, deemed by The Knot founder Carley Roney as the “talk of the south,” is a genius at transforming spaces and creating experiences. Christopher is the ultimate combination of perfectionist and competent friend. He has become one of the most sought-after event planners for his graceful customer service and impeccable style and was named best wedding planner in Atlanta by Jezebel Magazine.
His event portfolio represents each client’s respective style amplified with his creative vision. “Never are two parties alike,” says Confero. “There is no recipe for every event, but there are certain finishes that define a Confero production.” His perspective on parties is cultivated through experiences building his own business for over a decade, collaborating with clients and artists around the world and saving time for his own twirls on the dancefloor.
With a degree in public relations and marketing as well as a background in the arts, Christopher crafts narratives for his clients’ most cherished moments in life - all with a touch of magic.

“We keep moving forward, opening new doors and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.” Walt Disney
Confero is an award winning, full-service planning and design company with over a decade’s experience in creating extraordinary events. Based in Atlanta and led by Christopher Confero, we are not defined by one person or idea but rather a collection of creatives that elevate and innovate. As a small company, our approach to design means that we have our hands on every piece of the puzzle to ensure one cohesive production. We strive to be the best at what we do and always better than the day before. For our clients, we know that “good” is never enough and “great” is just cutting it.
The core of creativity is imagination. We must allow ourselves to look at our surroundings with a fresh eye and detect new in the old, the unfamiliar in the familiar. If we are able to combine the explicitly different elements into a clear new sensibility, then we have successfully realized our calling. But there has to be a cohesive and logical approach or it’s just nonsense.
We believe that life should be beautifully celebrated. We are the connection where art meets experience.
Before we begin, we have to find our fit. The relationship between client and planner requires a strong sense of trust and compatibility. Join us for a coffee or cocktail to discuss more about what you need to make your dreams come true. After all, this website can only speak so much to his work - but Christopher isn’t called the “Talk of the South” for nothing honey.
Once you’ve decided Christopher is your perfect planner, he takes the time to hear your full story and understand your needs. Then he’ll determine your specific style and gather all the details for one cohesive vision that can be transformed into an experience for you and your guests. This is your chance to put it all on the table - no idea or detail is too crazy or too extra.
With your love-story in mind, we script a narrative that speaks to who you are as a couple. Christopher then begins to craft an experience that intertwines details great and small. From floral and décor to stationery and staging, we have a deep understanding and mastery of the party process. Dare to dream, anything is possible.
If Christopher is the conductor, his collective of creatives are the instruments that realize the details of your day. Christopher enlists specially-selected professionals that are the best in their fields and manages their talents within the full story, which means you only have to make one call and he handles the rest.
After the dreaming and scheming are complete, it’s time for the magic to come to life. With a full cast and crew in place, we roll up our sleeves and get to work while you revel in a stress-free day. When you show up, the music is playing and the candles are lit. All that is left is for you to pop the champagne and put on your dancing shoes. But remember, Christopher is never more than ten steps away with a handful of confetti – consider yourself warned!
