Choosing a wedding date can be quite a challenge. You have to choose a date which works for you and your guests. You need to choose a wedding date that is in the season of your preference. And, you may even want to pick a day that is fun and easy to remember. Whatever your decision, make your wedding date a good one. You’ll remember it forever!

Finding a venue can be easy if you have a wedding planner with connections. At Events by Cori we have a page dedicated to featuring the venues that we work closely with while also highlighting the beautiful weddings that we’re so proud of!

It’s never too early in the wedding planning process to start talking about your guest list. Before you announce that you’re having 250 people and start verbally inviting people, it’s a good idea to sit down with your fiancé and answer the following questions.

  • What is your dream wedding? It could be a petite gathering or a large bash.
  • Who comes to mind when you think of getting married? These are the people that make your day particularly special.
  • Who is involved in paying for the wedding? This will help to decide which guests they would like to have there as well.
  • What can you afford? This is the ultimate question- setting up a budget will help identify what type of event fits best for you.

Once you’ve got these preliminary questions out of the way, and decided where you’re having both the ceremony and reception, you’ll know about how many guests you want to invite. The next step is deciding how many invitations to give to each of your parents. Traditionally, the invitations are split evenly between the two families. However, if the bride and groom share the same group of friends, you may choose to give each of your parents a third of the invitations, reserving a third for yourselves.

You and your fiancé should sit down and start naming the names (and gathering the addresses!) that will make up your portion of the guest list. Make it fun with wine and cheese!

In this industry I come across some amazing talent and feel so strongly about showcasing my peers work. Videography is often times one of those services that couples choose to leave out of their budget because they don’t realize what a difference it is to have photos vs. film. I can’t say enough great things about Vantage Point Productions and their passion for creating heart-warming videos that capture the wedding day from getting ready before the ceremony to the bride and grooms departure at the end of the night. They are able to capture a play-by-play of a very special day for my clients and I am so grateful that I get to work with this incredible talent on a regular basis.

I regret not hiring a professional videographer. There were so many funny, sentimental, thoughtful, surprising, best-day-of-our-life moments that I wish were captured on video.”

Erika & Brent are both actors that love theatre and musicals which certainly influenced their live music choice for their wedding. Erika’s very artistic mother designed the escort cards and the photo collages that were placed throughout the Casa Romantica reflecting on the evolution of their relationship. It was a gorgeous day with a beach sunset toward the end of the celebration.

At Events by Cori we’ve designed weddings at many locations all over Orange County and Casa Romantica continues to be a breathtaking wedding favorite. Built in 1927, the Casa Romantica house and gardens are perched on a hill above the San Clemente pier. The location and architecture, including the amazing ocean views, gives ample opportunity to create some excellent photos.  The Casa Romantica grounds offer a unique ability to host both the wedding ceremony and the reception on the bluff or in the gardens- it’s so close to the beach that you can hear the ocean waves crashing! The venue is spacious; plenty of places for your guests to walk around and explore.  For example, guests can explore  the butterfly garden, the inside of the Spanish-style home, the gardens surrounding the house and exhibit rooms and the outdoor amphitheater. We love working with this venue and would encourage any of our brides to contact us today for a personalized tour!
