meet cortney

The year was 2008 and I realized I had found my dream career after volunteering to help a friend plan her wedding. After hours of research learning about blooming tea for her centerpieces, I was hooked. I knew where all my attention and focus belonged. I started by completing a degree in Hospitality and Tourism Management from San Diego State University. With an emphasis on meetings and events, I have since received 17 additional certifications to assure every event and wedding delivers an experience of lifelong memories to brides, grooms, and their loved ones. I have now worked with hundreds of clients and been continuously blessed with new planning and design adventures year after year.

 

My favorite part of the wedding planning process, to this day, is producing a creative exerpience for the couple and their guests. I love making each wedding day custom, for each and every couple. Making your wedding everything you dreamed of is what I am here to do. My team and I attend to every detail for a stress free wedding day that floats by with joy. Your guests will know on arrival that your custom event reflects you, with details and touches that say welcome to OUR wedding!

I can honestly say, I love what I do.

meet my beau

We met in a parking lot off a crowded Southern California freeway on Valentine's Day. I admit it was a Craigslist shelter hook-up, and I was a little nervous at first, so I brought some girlfriends with me to be sure. But there he was, all cute and fluffy... it was love at first sight. Who can resist that face?

oh my, jameson

Jameson’s the epitome of a gentle giant!

There is no foe to our sweet boy,

except maybe every tennis ball

in Orange County.

He’s 100 pounds of nothing but harmless…
unless you’re maybe his dog food.
