Lead Coordinator/Managing Partner
Cristina has always had a love for weddings and events. Her career path and education led her to partner with Simply Weddings Las Vegas a leading brand for weddings in Las Vegas. A foodie for excellence, after getting her degree in Culinary Arts, she spent over a year working at a five-star resort in Southern California and she was immediately attracted to the wedding magic. After going back home to Mexico and having worked several more years in a booming hospitality organization, she had to go with her gut and follow her dream in pursuing a career in the wedding industry. Cristina was awarded a scholarship to get certified as a Wedding Coordinator by The International School of Hospitality in Las Vegas. She then moved back to the United States and began her new venture in the largest thriving capital for weddings, Las Vegas. Her enthusiasm has led her to an extensive wedding coordination position with Brit Bertino, event excellence where Brit saw her thriving potential and offered Cristina a partnering role at Brit’s flourishing secondary company, Simply Weddings Las Vegas. She also has recently been certified as CGSP, (Certified Guest Service Professional) which is an elite certification that prepares her to provide superior guests services to each and every couple and creative partner. As a newlywed, Cristina understands what brides are feeling in the days leading up to the wedding and she’ll pull some tricks from the book to make sure her brides enjoy their big day. Organization is key for her; she is one of the few people who enjoys excel spreadsheets. Her three languages come in handy when she travels the world with her husband Pedro. After a long work day, she enjoys watching documentaries on Netflix (if the Chicago Bulls aren’t playing) or walking her miniature schnauzer, Aspi.
As a little girl, you could often find Lexi Kruger playing wedding and house in her Grandma’s basement. (Usually using a towel as a veil and her Mom’s old prom dress as her own, very elegant, wedding dress) A hopeless romantic, love and family are the most important things to her. When she was given the opportunity to work in the wedding industry, Lexi couldn’t turn it down. Having a love for all kinds of people, you will usually find her with a smile on her face. Growing up in Las Vegas, Lexi has seen it all and is well versed in all that the beautiful Valley has to offer, both on and off of the Strip. She loves her city and loves the diversity of the wedding industry. As a certified CGSP, (Certified Guest Service Professional) she thoroughly enjoys speaking one on one with the Brides and Grooms, to make sure their big day is the most memorable day of their lives. She is the right-hand executive assistant to the wedding coordinators making sure every task is thoroughly reviewed and completed with her team members
Aside from the wedding world, Lexi is a first time Papillary Cancer survivor.

Born and raised in Austin, Texas, Riley started out in the wedding business at the ripe old age of nine. His family owns a wedding venue and he grew up laying linens, setting flowers, hanging lights, and bustling bridal gowns. When he came to Las Vegas looking for over-the-top weddings, Simply Weddings proved to be a perfect match. He loves creating a specific vision for each couple and making their dreams come alive. He has adjusted well to the glitz and the glam of the Vegas lights, but still loves to embrace his Texan background during his trips back home.
When not equipped with a clipboard in hand, Riley is active in the local arts culture and frequents the Smith Center to see his favorite Broadway shows. He is also an avid cyclist, competing in local road races and taking weekly bike trips with friends out at Red Rock. Riley also loves to indulge in shopping sprees (who doesn’t?) and always claims he has nothing to wear, even though he’s clearly the best dressed in the group.
A Vegas girl at heart, Tori Lounsbery hasn’t always had weddings in mind for her career – in fact, she entered college as a Student Athlete. During her time at the University of Nevada Las Vegas, however, Tori started her internship with Simply Weddings and knew she had found her passion. She then took a semester to explore the world of Food and Beverage as an Assistant Banquet Coordinator, but she soon came to realized her desire to have her hand in all aspects of a couple’s big day.
In her downtime, Tori can be found cruising through downtown Las Vegas, bouncing from thrift stores to dessert shops (she has a major sweet tooth!). She is also fond of DIY projects and taking road trips to discover new places.
Wedding planners are, by trade, hopeless romantics and Gina Gangemi is no exception. After graduating from The International School of Hospitality, Gina joined the Simply Weddings team in 2013 and has since found that her true passion for weddings comes from her love of love itself. When looking back on her favorite weddings, she finds that her picks have very little to do with the décor, overall theme or food. Instead, it’s about the love so evidently shared between the couple on their big day.
When not amidst wedding work, there’s no doubt that Gina will still be running off of her one true love – coffee! Gina enjoys spending her time with her fiancée and their Chihuahua, Bella – preferably outdoors and near a body of water! She travels at any chance she can get and it’s even better if the destination can accommodate her love of scuba diving (as close as she can get to her dream of being a mermaid – for now!).
