THE PHILOSOPHY - BE YOUR OWN DESIGN
We take time to get to know our clients during design sessions so that something truly unique can be produced with a focus on creating experiences and story-telling.
The truth of the matter is, Pinterest and IG are accessible to everyone with internet, but your story - whether it be sharing love or building success, your story is special and online readymade mood boards don't actually cut it.
We are humbled to write that our work has been featured in renowned magazines, print and web publications, and pride ourselves in being trusted by our colleagues in the events industry. Our team is always a dynamic group of seasoned professionals that have produced and worked hundreds of successful events.
Our clients, like us, don't just rely on the latest trend. Our clients believe in amazing food, fine drinks, great entertainment, and want to create a beautiful event that reflect a vision set in perfect ambiance.

Design style: I love any style my clients ask of me, but I do add personal twists that step out of the box. Although I love classic elegance, my design brain shines best with artsy, sexy touches (yes, I went there – that’s how I do), mixed with a bit of mischievous fun. At the end of the day, no matter what style the event may be, my clients always have these three things things in common:
1) LOVE OF GREAT FOOD & DRINKS
2) LOVE OF ENTERTAINING
3) COURAGE TO STEP OUTSIDE OF THE BOX
Favorite ice cream flavor: Hazelnut (gelato!)
Favorite place visited: I am an avid traveler and have been fortunate enough to have lived in and visited quite a few countries. Each country and city has it's own charm, but I have to go with Rome. What can I say? She has a little bit of everything.
One item on the bucket list: It's more like a series of items, but it is to live in a different country or city every year for a few months.
What you never leave home without: I'd love to write something profound here, like "a sense of adventure", but nope - it's my phone.
Favorite band or musician: Tie between Bjork, Portishead and Radiohead
Favorite painter: Frida Kahlo por vida
Favorite Cocktail: A slightly dirty martini, Chopin, 3 olives
Something not too many people know: I speak 3 languages horribly, used to be a trip hop singer, will break into a prank or song at any moment (I AM the type to sing a song related to phrase or word someone just said), think fashion is art (because it is, duh), can eat North Indian food and sushi all day... every day.
When not at a wedding Korinna is probably: Traveling, eating well, spending time with family, creating ikebana floral arrangements or thinking helping another female entrepreneur.
Dislikes: I love engaging with people, but I dislike small talk. I am honestly terrible at it and find it hard to stay in a conversation if it has no substance. I'm a straight to the point kind of person and I like people or conversations that are genuine.
