We are Kris and Allie. A kiwi (A) and a yank (K). A Husband and wife duo respected among the finest of event stylists and vendors.
Our love flourished as Allie was studying classical music in North America while Kristopher spent his days farming soybean, maize and sugar. They really do say opposites attract!
In true Kris and Allie style, our relationship has been nothing but fast-paced and exciting. We were engaged and tying the knot, beginning our lives together farming in Minnesota, USA, within 7 months of meeting.
Allie began her journey with an events floral business in the United States alongside her sister-in-law - with Kristopher helping out on the weekends. The wedding industry quickly became a love and a passion for us both.
Knowing there was a gap in the NZ wedding industry for furniture hire, we traded in our life of maize and soybean for greener pastures and in July 2018, took the plunge launching Flock Events in New Zealand.
Our business originated from a love of gathering. A gathering that is not only warm and comfortable but, inviting. Flock is also a nod to both our mothers, who have instilled the art of a good gathering, welcoming friends and family regularly into our family homes. And wow, have we been overwhelmed with how quickly we have been welcomed into this fast-paced industry by those who are yet to satisfy their lounging and furniture aspirations.
We believe Flock is successful because we have a lot of trust in one another. We play on each other’s strengths. We inspire, challenge and drive one another. It’s rewarding and it’s dynamic. Flock allows us to travel New Zealand and experience life together, we are so grateful.
