    From the very begining Cori was extremely timely. I remember getting the schedule & thinking this woman is on steriods :-)! She is efficient and thought of things we has no idea of. She is flexible exhibits that she wants what is best for our event. I would recomend he without hesitation.

    When we decided to get married 400 miles from home we realized we would need a Wedding Coordinator. I spent several hours calling around to find someone for more of a "day of service" within our budget with no luck. Then I came across Cori and when I talked to her she made the decision very easy. She worked around our budget and went above and beyond to make the wedding planning process as easy on me as possible. She was able to get us deals on some amazing vendors and was quick to respond to any questions or issues that came up along the way. On the day of our wedding she was organized and incredibly helpful the entire time. She kept everything running smoothly and I was able to enjoy my day stress free. Would definitely recommend her.

    Cori was an absolute pleasure to work with and took great pride in ensuring that we had a special day. Cori is very knowledgeable of Orange County and had a host of vendors that she coordinated to make our day unique and memorable. Each detail was executed perfectly and we were very happy with her services and would highly recommend her for any special event!

    Hiring Cori was the best decision I made for my wedding (besides choosing my husband :)). She was professional, prompt, attentive, caring, and extremely kind and helpful. We had unexpected rain on our wedding day and she was completely unfazed by it! She worked extra hard to make sure everything went off smoothly. She was there for every meeting, even the last minute ones, and she always had a great attitude and a smile. Everything went so smoothly on our wedding day I don't even know if there were any problems! Hire Cori to plan and coordinate your wedding to guarantee a problem-and-stress-free wedding!

    Cori made my dream wedding a reality. I am not sure how I could have pulled off everything off without her. I was very impressed with her kindness and professionalism through out the process. Her enthusiasm is contagious! On the day of the wedding my family and I were able to relax and know that everything was being taken care of. Every last detail was perfect! I would highly recommend Cori!

    This was the most amazing experience. I have heard and seen these "bridezillas" and my biggest fear during the planning process was that I'd turn into one. Cori truly was amazing! She had everything covered. My husband and I knew what we wanted and Cori not only pointed us in the right direction, but was there for every meeting. She handled all the details, big and small!! Everyone told me how stress free I looked during the wedding and I truly felt it, didn't worry about a thing and had the most amazing night of my life, and I have Cori to thank for that!! It was such a blessing our paths crossed!

    Working with Cori promises laughter and effciency! Upon our first meeting to plan our event, I instantly knew Cori was going to be a pleasure to work with. That very same day, she emailed the notes from our meeting and regularly kept ongoing communication with me. She is a good listener and leader. I greatly appreciated her flexibility to adjust her planning to be in alighnment with mine. She is experienced, creative, resourceful, and well connected in the wedding world. Could I recommend "Events by Cori"?...with great confidence!

    My daughter and son-in-law live across the country from us, and we worked together to plan their wedding--I'm an interior designer, but hadn't had much experience with weddings. Cori was an invaluable resource--flexible, professional and enthusiastic. She served as a 'day of' planner for us, but also as someone we could turn to for questions and perspective. She constructed a timeline for the event which became the blueprint for the evening, and gave clarity to the other vendors. On the wedding day I was confident in her ability to run the event, and was really able to relax and enjoy our daughter's wedding. I have Cori to thank for that luxury and heartily recommend her service.

    Cori is exceptional...
    Cori Sponagle was the wedding planner at my best friends wedding at the Viceroy in Palm Springs. Cori is very detailed oriented and so pleasant to work with. I got to know Cori during the planning process, rehearsal and ofcourse the wedding day. I wanted my best friend to relax and let Cori handle the entire wedding. Needless to say, what a great job Cori did.
    Cori and her team gave my best friend and her husband a day they will always treasure.
    Thank you Cori from all of us at the Glassco Wedding.

    Cori did a wonderful job of coordinating our holiday party. We had 30 people at our event and Cori met with me beforehand to make sure we had all of the food and favors correct. She also suggested flowers which really made our tables look festive and welcoming. I will use her again next year.

    Having Cori was invaluable and contributed to a wedding that surpassed my expectations. She was very organized but still flexible enough to allow me to plan the day I wanted to have. She was cool under pressure and was always full of ideas and recommendations. Highly recommend Cori for weddings or any other event planning.

    Our contract with Cori was for "Day Of" Coordinator. She provided very thorough preliminary guidance as well. She was great at connecting with all the vendors in advance and managing them the day of. I did not have to worry about anything.
