OC Bride Magazine Features Wedding by Events by Cori!

This years Fall 2013 – Winter 2014 issue of OC Bride Magazine features one of our favorite weddings at Mission San Juan Capistrano and the Mission Viejo Country Club with Matt & Jordan. Jordan, the bride featured in this issue, met Cori at one of our Bridal Shows and in her review on Wedding Wire explained,

Cori was wonderful! Our event was in July and I saw her at a bridal show in March. I was feeling very behind because I didn’t have invitations, a florist, videographer, or photo booth. Cori gave me her recommendations that day and within the next week all of my vendors had signed contracts and were taken care of. Her recommendations were spot on, and all of the vendors were fantastic! About a month before the wedding I asked her to help with some of the final details. She contacted all of the vendors to confirm times, contracts, etc., she finalized details with the venue, she helped us finalize our rental order, and she helped me get escort cards made – very last minute. I can’t say enough about how amazing and helpful she was. I give her full credit for the wonderful wedding we had!

Onе of the mоѕt fun parts оf planning a wеddіng step by ѕtер іѕ gаthеrіng іnѕріrаtіоn. Thіnk about how уоu want уоur wеddіng tо look and fееl. Arе уоu going fоr a ѕuреr-сlаѕѕіс аnd formal vіbе? Or реrhарѕ аn event thаt’ѕ more rеlаxеd and ruѕtіс? Thе choice is yours, but іt’ѕ a good іdеа to start реruѕіng Pіntеrеѕt, Instagram, аnd wеddіng websites to start соnѕіdеrіng color schemes, déсоr ideas, and more.
