We've absolutely LOVED working with Cori! My fiancé and I interviewed a few different coordinators and we really appreciated that Cori listened to us, respected our budget and was willing to work with us to make our day that much more special. She had great vendor recommendations and has even worked with vendors on our behalf. Most importantly, she's kept us on track with our "to-do's" and timelines, and has been an absolute joy to work with! I highly recommend working with Cori and am so thankful to have her throughout this process.

Booking Cori was the best decision I made when wedding planning! She was and is simply AWESOME and no review can do justice for her beautiful work with our wedding! Planning a wedding is stressful, especially when you mix two weddings in different continents, a Type A personality and the stress of a traveling consultant for work. She kept me grounded and peaceful (I am sure my husband is super thankful for that). Thank god, I found her early on in the summer of 2017 (I had my first wedding in India in December and the second one in California in April). Though we had hired and paid Cori for "day-of" coordination, what we got from her along the whole year-long process was so much more! Our meetings were detailed and organized, and she was able to transform my mumbo jumbo into a beautifully decorated and organized wedding. Cori saved us so much time and unnecessary stress that came with organizing our wedding.
She has great taste, very experienced with SoCal venues (expert in our venue – Casa Romantica), and her organizational skills are top notch. She had personalized checklists, made phone calls for us, and told us not to worry about countless things, as she did them for us. She also had tons of valuable recommendations in terms of other vendors – we got our baker and florist through Cori. She is incredibly patient (I know that for sure because I can have analysis paralysis and take time for decisions) and I am ever so grateful for her keeping her calm and guiding me through this daunting maze. She was also constantly in touch with both of us to remind us of things we needed to do and always made herself available for a chat or a meeting. Always prompt, friendly, and thorough in our communication, we are still so pleased!!

We met Cori at a bridal expo she was hosting and immediately hit it off. I can say fully that our wedding would not be as spectacular as it was without her. Cori, you are amazing! And such a joy to work with.
A couple highlights:
1. She introduced us to all our vendors, all of which worked seamlessly together.
2. When time was a premium, Cori was always ten steps ahead, working behind the scenes on things we didn't even know we needed.
3. Made sure all timelines and deliverables were met.
4. On the day of the wedding, it was like a well oiled machine. Everything was seamless and perfect. My husband and I actually felt we got to enjoy the moment and the time there I think because we didn't have to worry about anything leading up to it. I experienced no anxiety the day of about things getting done and neither did Max.
5. We had comments from our guests about how perfectly organized it was. Maxs uncle said it was "Fabulously Organized and Executed. An honor to attend" and this was just one of the comments we received from our wedding. Our guests were constantly talking about what a smooth and perfect evening it was.
6. Our parents absolutely adored you! And that was important to us.
Thank you Cori from the bottom of our hearts. We have the most perfect memory of our wedding day and will 1000% recommend you to any of our friends getting married. It was beyond perfect and I can't thank you enough for making this special memory above and beyond beautiful for us.

We had already selected our venue when we found Cori. The venue provided a list of recommended vendors and under the wedding coordinators section Cori Sponagle was listed. Due to both of our backgrounds and personalities, my fiancée and I did our due diligence and interviewed many on that list intently. Cori was happy, already had ideas for our wedding, and could take my dry sarcasm and humor. I chose my wedding to be in the theme/feel of 1920's meets the Petit Trianon, and planning that from thousands of miles away was no easy feat. Cori was there every step of the way with her enthusiastic personality. We met several times in person and communicated continuously via email. She was constantly sending me items that would fit the theme (e.g., glassware, plates, etc.). She heard my ideas, understood my vision; and with those, she connected me with vendors that could make everything a reality. If a problem or issue arose, all I had to do was communicate my disparity to Cori, and she took care of settling and resolving the matter. She was extremely invested in the venue that I had chosen (Casa Romantica), so much so that she donated two beautiful chairs similar to the Louis XV style which fit the wedding theme. We were able to incorporate these chairs at the wedding reception. The wedding and reception were both beautiful and Cori was just as excited as I was to see everything come together. She was extremely helpful and resourceful, and the wedding would not have been the same without her help.
Cori was our day-of coordinator for our February wedding at Casa Romantica. She was easy to communicate with, responding almost immediately to any questions we had. Another great perk is that Cori knows Casa Romantica inside and out. She provided great ideas on what furniture to rent and where to put it which was super helpful. We highly recommend using Cori.
