Who Is Corina Alex?
The oldest of 3, I was born and raised in the small town of Southington, CT. I grew up with chickens and bunnies as my pets, and at a young age developed a great love for the outdoors! I daydream all too often of traveling to far away places and experiencing all different cultures. (Italy, Bali, and Puckett are currently top on my list!) 'Canon in D' still does, and always will give me goosebumps. I love going to the movies and singing karaoke! In College, I was on the Speech and Debate Team and competed Nationally. Philosophy and Rhetoric intrigue me, and I drink way more coffee than I probably should.
I have always loved occupying my time with DIY creative projects and hosting stylish dinner parties for friends and family. It didn't take long for me to recognize the undeniable love and appreciation I had for bringing joy to others lives in a creative, exciting, and memorable way.
I began my career in Event Planning 8 years ago and have had the opportunity to work with a number of high end Clients and Couples on some pretty amazing Events in some of the most beautiful settings. I've worked in Southern Florida, Los Angeles, San Diego, Cape Town, South Africa, & Connecticut. Whether you have a vision for completely transforming your back yard into an beautiful Oasis for an upcoming Wedding, or need help putting together ideas on paper for an upcoming Bar Mitzvah in a Hotel Ballroom, I'm here for you from start to finish!

What Do Past Clients Have to Say?
"There's so many good reasons to look into a planner. She thought of things we wouldn't normally have and was detailed to perfection. We were really able to get into 'wedding mode' the few weeks leading up to our big day without worry. It's just an added plus that she's an awesome person and truly passionate about event planning! - Caitlin" - 'Wedding Wire'
"Corina is like your fairy godmother (except younger & much prettier)! She absolutely saved me when I was drowning in wedding planning chaos! I was planning a destination wedding which automatically adds additional layers of stress, when things had hit critical mass. Icontacted Corina & INSTANTLY she went into wedding planner extraordinaire! I will never forget when she said to me, "from this point forward you are no longer the planner but now the bride and I will become the planner." If I could have reached through the phone and hugged her, I would have. From that moment forward she picked up all of the pieces and SEAMLESSLY put them all together! She thought of details that I would have never even known to think about or ask. I had a lot of ideas and visions started and she was able to pick up where I left off and hit the ground running. Every last detail came to life exactly how i imagined and in some cases, even better thanks to her!! Her attention to detail was amazing and it was like she read my mind! She was always 10 steps ahead and no detail went undone! She coordinated all of our MANY vendors; there is NO WAY a bride would be able to do what she did! If it wasn't for her, my wedding would not have been half of what it was!! There are not enough "thank you's" in the world to be able to repay her for saving me from wedding planning hell & allowing me to transition into the role of bride!! My only regret was that I didn't hire her sooner! She was AMAZING to work with -- always answered emails & phone calls, was quick to respond, followed through, detail oriented, always smiling (!) and was just a ball of positive energy that was welcomed in the midst of chaos and stress! Whether you are looking for a full service planner or day of services, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND CORINA ALEX EVENTS!! You will NOT be disappointed!!! Thank you Corina from the bottom of our hearts!!
