Booking Cori was the best decision I made when wedding planning! She was and is simply AWESOME and no review can do justice for her beautiful work with our wedding! Planning a wedding is stressful, especially when you mix two weddings in differ...
ent continents, a Type A personality and the stress of a traveling consultant for work. She kept me grounded and peaceful (I am sure my husband is super thankful for that). Thank god, I found her early on in the summer of 2017 (I had my first wedding in India in December and the second one in California in April). Though we had hired and paid Cori for "day-of" coordination, what we got from her along the whole year-long process was so much more! Our meetings were detailed and organized, and she was able to transform my mumbo jumbo into a beautifully decorated and organized wedding. Cori saved us so much time and unnecessary stress that came with organizing our wedding. She has great taste, very experienced with SoCal venues (expert in our venue – Casa Romantica), and her organizational skills are top notch. She had personalized checklists, made phone calls for us, and told us not to worry about countless things, as she did them for us. She also had tons of valuable recommendations in terms of other vendors – we got our baker and florist through Cori. She is incredibly patient (I know that for sure because I can have analysis paralysis and take time for decisions) and I am ever so grateful for her keeping her calm and guiding me through this daunting maze. She was also constantly in touch with both of us to remind us of things we needed to do and always made herself available for a chat or a meeting. Always prompt, friendly, and thorough in our communication, we are still so pleased!!
On the wedding day, I realized that I had overlooked some (kind of important!) details like card box, water stations etc., and Cori offered up some she had on hand from a previous wedding! She was also accommodating to last minute change of plans like an impromptu dance on the Casa terrace (of course from the bride!), and handled it gracefully with the relevant vendors… all so seamlessly. Cori was there from the very beginning coordinating everyone and everything: Caterer, Officiant, Bar, floor staff, DJ, florist, rentals... not to mention arranging the site and coordinating 80 guests. Multiple guests have mentioned how beautiful, cohesive and well-knit our wedding was, and Andy & I couldn’t have done it without her. Not only is she deeply in love with what she does and extremely professional, she is a very kind personality. Our wedding was amazing, and was practically perfect.
I've already recommended Cori to a friend, and I'd enthusiastically recommend her to you, too. She's supportive, cheerful, and incredibly good at her job. She is an expert at SoCal weddings, especially in OC. I know without a doubt that our wedding was beautiful and perfect because she was there every step of the way, taking care of every little detail in a structured manner! Her presence made EVERY difference to me, my husband,and the entire wedding. Thank you, Cori, for all the magic! <3
