MEET CORTNEY HELAINE
I was on my way to a career in a medical field when some friends got married. They did not have a big budget, in fact just the opposite. I was 19 and I volunteered to help them. I got more enjoyment over finding inexpensive favors than anything I had done so far in the medical field and a career was born. Imagine how much fun it is to be an integral part of a person’s happiest day.
So, I changed my focus and began my studies in earnest, beginning with my degree in Hospitality and Tourism Management with an emphasis in meetings and events at San Diego State. I also have bridal consultant certificates with Penn Foster, ABC (Association of Bridal Consultants) Certified Bridal Consultant and Best of Wedding Wire 2012 just to name a few.
I have been approved to work in such prestigious locations as The Richard Nixon Library, Soka University, Pagent of the Masters, Ocean Institute, Segerstrom Hall, The Ritz Carlton, Ojai Valley Inn and Spa and a host of other sites with preferred vender lists.
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 Craig's List 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 site. Who can resist that face?
