TOMI DINKINS

Wedding Planner

I’ve always been the ‘problem-solver’, the ‘rational thinker’, the ‘life-long learner’, and constantly the leader in positive action becoming positive change around me.  Experience has blessed me with the ability to morph organization into an art form and big dreams into reality, this is how I live life. Thoughts are like puzzles that become beautiful moments and cherished memories when the pieces fit together perfectly.  My favorite question is ‘why’ and my favorite answer is ‘love’ and the passion that always accompanies it; for me, that is where I thrive. I love taking something intangible and turning it into real life; all of the thoughts, past memories, goals, hopes, adjustments and compromises of my couples being brought together to begin this new chapter together in life.  It’s that exact moment I see in both of them when they walk into their event to see their dreams have seamlessly come to life right before their eyes… This is why I do it.

CHRISTI PORTER

Photographer, Planner, Web Designer, Social Media Manager

Georgia peach turned Lowcountry local when I moved down to Charleston for college in 2015. With a degree in graphic design and a love for photography, I pursued the digital arts and sought to turn my passion into a reality. After working in the wedding industry on the weekends throughout college, I knew that this was something I wanted to pursue after I graduated. Linda took me under her wing when she took over Pinnacle Weddings, and now you could almost say that I am your “One-Stop Shop” when it comes to a Pinnacle wedding. I love getting to know new people and maintaining those relationships as the years go on in hopes that many of the vendors and brides we work with will become a friends, rather than just coworkers and clients.

CAM BUSKIRK

DJ

As a South Carolinian locally born and raised, I have grown up around music my entire life. I am now going on my eleventh year as a French Horn player and am currently studying at Charleston Southern University pursuing Music Education. When I am not playing one of the many instruments I know, I’m found using my musical talents on the DJ decks. I have been on the DJ decks for 7 years and am never looking back. In addition to Pinnacle, I make up one half of a highly successful DJ duo in Charleston, who has performed at numerous shows and festivals for as many as thousands of people. Whether it be through my classical music on the recital hall stage, electronic beats in a packed club, or playing the night away at a wedding, it is my goal to have the entire crowd dancing and making memories all night long!

Linda Warner was our wedding planner and I’m so glad she was! We chose the middle package. Linda went above and beyond to make our day extra special. No detail was overlooked. It was a beautiful day. She provided wonderful insight, suggestions, and opinions. We were definitely a team in planning my wedding. It would not have been the same without her. She was worth every penny. Thanks Linda!

Review from The Knot

I used pinnacle planning for my recent wedding and hands down the best choice I ever made. Tomi and Linda were absolutely amazing! Didn’t realize all the goes into planning a wedding until they came along. We were so organized and scheduled we were ahead of the game! They were both so professional and were able to take a small little vision and turn it into something magical. Easy to work with and truly cared about us! Would use them again and again!

Review from The Knot

Linda was absolutely amazing! Personable, sweet spirited, engaging, and very much hands on without being “obvious”. She orchestrated the “coordinator “ role at its finest and I enjoyed her presence immensely! She was absolutely what my daughter needed to enjoy her wedding day at its finest! Grateful mom!!!!
