Casa Romantica in San Clemente was the perfect location for Megan & Brian’s Wedding!  Megan grew up in San Clemente and Brian really wanted their photos to include the beautiful, near by beach. You will notice how fitting it is with the vintage ocean theme, starfish, sand dollars and a meaningful walk on the beach to remember.




















A family friend performed the ceremony for the Wedding followed by heartfelt speeches by the Fathers of the couple that will be cherished moments when Megan & Brian look back on their special day.

Megan & Brian chose a Vintage Ocean Theme for their Wedding and with the help of the Flower Company of San Clemente and the stunning creativity of Megan and her Mother with the beautiful candy table, stained glass and sand dollars guest placeholders to add all the right touches.


















Photographer, Kate Noelle did a beautiful job capturing the magic and beauty of the day as well as the couple wish to be photographed at the beach…… they even made it back on time for the Grand Entrance in front of all their loved ones.



That’s me, with the bride and groom above and it was such a pleasure to plan and coordinate Megan & Brian’s Wedding with special help from these amazing and talented vendors whose special touches made this day romantic and magical!

Alisha & John met and fell in love at work and are blending families and celebrating their special day with unique touches at the beautiful Dove Canyon Country Club with their children, family and friends.



                 A little pre-wedding  tid bit – Photos were taken at Rancho Capistrano before the wedding and the whole family did a sand ceremony performed by Reverend Brent.  It was  a touching, heartfelt, personal ceremony filled with laughter.














Family, friends and the kids were so excited for this day and it showed in the smiles on everyone’s faces…


Everyone participated in making this day special, John’s Mother did the calligraphy for the guests names in the decorative black frames.

Kendra the photographer,  created a photo booth  with this stunning backdrop and chandelier, there were instant photos and they were placed in the album signed by the guests with well wishes.

Another Wedding Secret… The food at Dove Canyon was to die for, but as a late night snack Alisha & John arranged for a Fatburger truck to arrive at 10:00 PM to keep the party going all night!

Another happy couple, who headed off to Hawaii for the honeymoon after their fabulous Wedding and FUN reception. The day would not be complete without mentioning all the special vendors that helped make this day meaningful and memorable for Alisha & John and their family and friends.

This Wedding was designed and coordinated by Events by Cori and for this spectacular couple; Cathy & Jon.  Here is a list of amazing vendors and services that provided the special touches and details to make it a day to remember.

When Cathy & Jon decided to have a wed­ding the rules were sim­ple. They wanted some­thing sweet and mean­ing­ful. She didn’t want to be the cen­ter of atten­tion. No walk­ing down the aisle {she walked from the side}, no for­mal pic­tures of her­self, and her beau­ti­ful daugh­ters and hand­some son were to be included. Jon just wanted every­one to have fun with some ol’fashion wed­ding tra­di­tions, south­ern style, like his accent.

The cou­ple shared a love of music which was evi­dent in every aspect of their wed­ding. The Sil­ver Trum­pet restau­rant was the per­fect place for the danc­ing cou­ple. Big Brass instru­ments dec­o­rated both the restau­rant and the recep­tion. A stand up Bass wel­comed guests in, and a live band inside beck­oned them to stay and have fun.

To both enhance and soften the décor the bride chose Gold satin linens for all her tables with gor­geous and full cen­ter­pieces from the always ele­gant French Buckets.

The Offi­ciant, Thomas Pot­wora, is an School Prin­ci­pal who dis­cov­ered his knack for wed­dings by chance. A friend asked him to con­duct their cer­e­mony and he took the job very seri­ously. After rave reviews he began receiv­ing calls from guests ask­ing him to con­duct their wed­dings.  He com­bined his cre­ative writ­ing tal­ents with his pas­sion for mak­ing each wed­ding unique.

Sweet and mean­ing­ful cer­tainly described this wed­ding, and the couple’s rela­tion­ship in general.

The chal­lenge with this event was find­ing a per­fect mid­dle ground. The Bride, Cathy did not want to be showy and tried to keep every­thing on a smaller scale, but also wanted every­thing to be grand and beautiful and it was just that!

Another Happy Couple and unforgettable day…we provide the special touches for your special moments.  Please contact us to start planning your wedding day!  We have services that offer just a little help, to everything but “I do”!

Katie & Ernie at the Montage, Laguna Beach, July 2011

{Real Weddings} Down to Every Detail with Events by Cori…
When I first met Katie and Ernie, it was truly by chance.  Katie and I met at a bridal show, and like many brides she was thinking about the day her and Ernie would say their “I do’s”!  Thoughts were dancing through her head “A Stunning Location, Elegant Flowers, Simple Colors, Chic, Sweet, Intimate” … details… details and realized “we could probably use some help”.
A beautiful bride without a location? Date? Or plan to make her wedding dreams come true…

That is how Katie and I met, and their beautiful and unforgettable wedding day started to unfold.  Shortly after, I met Ernie, full of energy, ideas and affection for Katie, truly wanting her to have every wish fulfilled for their special day.  Inspired by this loving couple, I went into action knowing their wishes, price range and special touches to get this celebration & party started!


So many to choose from, but only one that captures your heart and ends the search.  One day, driving up the coast they happen upon the Montage in Laguna Beach, they step inside and fall in love.  This is one of the most stunning beachfront wedding locations in Orange County… casual elegance, perfect for the bride and groom to be!

Stunning isn't it? Wait until you see the Bride & Groom!

Speaking of the Bride… beautiful details for her and her wedding day.

Katie.. the sweet and stunning bride photographed by Kendra, her amazing photographer {and one of my personal favorite’s and top recommendations} Her happiness captured just moments before the ceremony, and before we knew it, it was time to walk down the aisle.  Katie did not hesitate, “Oh, it’s time? Well then, lets go!”  She was so calm………
Ernie, on the other hand, was like a kid the night before Santa Claus comes to town.  Excited, and ready to start his life with Katie as his wife.  Then,  he saw his Bride, his happy feet turned to mush, and they had one of the most romantic ceremonies that they will set the tone for a long and happy life together.

Talk about making a splash!  Katie & Ernie have many ahead of them.  Yes, what looks like what is about to happen above, actually happens. The wave crept up on all of us, and flooded the brides gown in sea water! These become the fun, memorable moments and stories… believe it or not!  While we had a moment in wet, sandy wedding dress, the brides lace organza quickly recovered. We shook the sand out, drove fast in a golf cart to let it air dry, and before you could say ” Welcome Mr & Mrs…”, she was dancing her first dance and no one was the wiser.

While the bride and groom had a beautiful, sunset, wedding ceremony, that was the end of their traditions. No bouquet tosses in this wedding. Following dinner on the lawn overlooking the Pacific Ocean, the guests were guided to a indoor/outdoor lounge complete with white leather couches, colorfully lit cubes, and dance music.  Peter Leal, the assistant photographer for Kendra Weddings arranged guests in cool, sexy poses to complete a chic, beautiful, wedding.  Perfect for a  beautiful, cool couple in love.

Last but least, Katie and I share a moment, a laugh and the real wedding day begins, with all the plans in place and fun for good measure as we have a lot to look forward to.  It was truly my pleasure to work with and be inspired by such a darling couple!
