About Korina

Hi there! My name is Korina. Through the planning process, I will allow you to feel comfortable and confident in knowing the day will run smoothly.

I love getting to know my couples better and sharing laughs with them. You will always find a smile on my face. I want you to enjoy your wedding  day just as much as your guests.

Don’t worry about the logistics, details and timeline… leave that to me! Wedding planning should be exciting and fun so let me take the stress off your shoulders! 

I love spending time with my family and huge extended family. I'm always up for mimosas, laughs, musicals & plays and all types of music. My favorite season is fall, I have a huge sweet tooth and I may or may not be obsessed with anything Bath and Body Works!

Meet korina:

I have at least 1 candle burning at all times of the day.


I come from a big family and that includes 28 first cousins.


Before I was a planner, I worked at 2 beautiful San Diego spas.


Loki is much bigger now, but still just as rambunctious. We like going on hikes  and snuggling after.

What I love Most:

Although I was born in Missouri, I have lived most of my life in San Diego. I grew up loving events and being a flower girl at many weddings. I took this passion for events to high school and played different roles in and eventually my sorority in college. 

I graduated from California State University San Marcos in 2017 and received my bachelors degree in Visual and Performing Arts. This area of expertise has followed me into my work in design and presentation. I love being creative and event planning and design allows me to express that. 

I chose to continue my education in 2019 and I am now a certified wedding and event planner and designer. After working for two incredibly talented wedding planners, I decided to start my own adventure and started Serene Events and Design in early 2020.
