"My husband and I stumbled upon beautiful St. Croix one winter vacation. We were
captivated by the obvious; perfect weather and breathtaking beaches, but it was more than just a refuge from the snowstorm back home. St. Croix truly invites guests to become a part of the island lifestyle. After deciding on a destination wedding, we couldn’t imagine celebrating anywhere other than St. Croix.
My notorious type A personality feared planning a destination wedding from a different time zone
would be too stressful. Notification that a random wedding planner, Corinne Farinola, would contact me did little to ease my concern. We scheduled a telephone meeting and within minutes of speaking with Corinne, I was confident my “random” wedding planner was actually an extraordinary wedding planner.
Corinne is poised and professional, while also extremely welcoming and friendly. Upon
arrival to St. Croix, she greeted us with a gift basket in one hand and an organized wedding folder in the other. From providing reassurance while practicing my vows to physically moving oversized lounge chairs at the pool, her support was above and beyond anything I could have hoped for. Corinne waited with me until the moment I walked down the aisle, and worked through the reception to ensure everything was executed as planned. As my husband and I were posing for photos at a historic fountain, I watched in horror/amazement as Corinne took a seat on the fountain and used her own dress to clean the surface. While this may be a humorous example, it perfectly portrays Corinne and her dedication to ensuring our wedding day was perfect.
From early stages of wedding planning to “you may now kiss your bride”, Corinne made our entire wedding experience truly magical. Words can never offer enough praise for her amazing work and companionship. Though they can be stressful, weddings are a celebration, and should be one of the most exciting times in your life. Keep that in mind, and everything else will fall into place…with a little help from Corinne, of course."
-Dr. Matthew and Meagan Young, March 5, 2015
"When we chose St Croix for our destination wedding, it was primarily for the beautiful surroundings….but when we met with Corinne, we knew our special day would be a world class event! Her professionalism, energy and dedication made our day perfect in every way. Corinne’s take-charge personality means you worry about NOTHING. Her many contacts and excellent relationships around the island allow her to accommodate any request! You will feel like you’re the only client she has, and your wedding planning will be stress free."
"Corinne planned our destination wedding on St. Croix for 40 people, and it was perfect! Her organization and attention to detail assure you immediately that you can trust your special day to Corinne. Her upbeat, positive and make-it-happen attitude will make all of your wedding dreams come true. All of these attributes make her the best wedding planner, but her warm and fun personality have made her our friend!"

"I was nervous at first about planning a destination wedding only because the “unknowns” of a place I had never been. But when I had my first phone consultation with Corinne, I knew I was in good hands. She was so organized, patient, reassuring, and well versed that I no longer had worries. She communicated so promptly and efficiently; whenever I had a question or concern, I felt secure in her leadership of our wedding. When we arrived in St. Croix, we met with her to make some last minute details come to life, and finalize the schedule. She was a great security blanket on our wedding day too, making sure everything went as planned…and if it didn’t, I never knew the difference! She actually surprised me with beautiful lanterns on the dock for some of our sunset pictures! That is how well she envisioned my dream wedding through our conversations. She went above and beyond to meet and exceed every request I had for our island wedding. I only wish she lived closer so I could use her expertise more often!"

"Our daughter, Caroline Land, and now son-in-law, Corey Baldwin, got married on St. Croix, Memorial Day weekend, May 29, 2015. We would like to express our complete and total satisfaction in your execution of our daughter's destination wedding. Your coordination to the very details of the Friday night Welcome Dinner, Saturday night Rehearsal Dinner, Sunday night beach Wedding, Reception and Dance, and to Monday's Breakfast was impeccable. During the months of wedding planning stateside, it was a stress-free, exciting experience from our side that we will NEVER forget!!
The wedding planning stage was executed very professionally throughout our emails and meetings long distance. You were able to coordinate the photographer, flowers, officiates, music, meals, cake, and decorations long distance. We had complete faith in you because of your excellent recommendations that were on the internet, as well as meeting with you in person and knowing you have countlessly done this many times successfully. You even had a Plan B in case we had bad weather and we had not even considered that in our planning.
The actual wedding weekend went flawless thanks to YOU. With all of your pre-planning and details, the entire weekend was absolutely beautiful and memorable. This allowed us to spend more time with our family and friends in the beautiful Virgin Islands. I must include shout outs to Lindsay Kammerzelt whose photography was unbelievable and magical, Gloria who did the flowers that were stunning, beautiful and co-ordinated beautifully with our daughter's theme of coral, white, and blue. The steel drum player was great for the Friday night Welcome Dinner and Wedding.
On the actual wedding day, we were so impressed with your detailed time line from the setup, execution, arrival of the groom, arrival of the bride, music, and ceremonial rites were exacting and flawless.
Thanks for allowing us to bring our own personal table decorations and coordinating them with the hotel's decoration centerpieces. The food was great and just allowing each guest to pick what they wanted to be served was impeccable. The wedding cake was beautiful and tasted great. The service was very attentive, prompt and wonderful. You kept the "ball rolling" the entire day.
Corinne, you are 5 STAR!! You deliver!! We had a great, wonderful, island wedding experience because of you and couldn't and wouldn't have wanted to do it without your expertise, professionalism, drive, and details. When our son gets married one day, we will definitely be steering him to have you as the wedding planner for another St. Croix wedding."

"Corinne was amazing!!! I can't say enough about how great she was. My partner Sergio and I were trying to plan the wedding from NYC and Corinne just alleviated all our stress and worries. She asked us the necessary questions and took our answers ran with them to create our dream wedding!!! The detail and hard work she put in was clearly evident. From the DJ to the decorations on the beach and at the reception, everything was perfect. My partner and I and all of our guests were truly impressed. St Croix was amazing, but Corinne was the one who truly made it memorable. We can't thank you enough Corinne!!! If you're on the fence, book her already. You won't be sorry."

"If you are looking to plan your dream destination wedding in St. Croix (which I highly recommend!) you must work with Corinne Farinola! Corinne has great knowledge of the island, a creative vision, and possesses the flexibility and listening skills needed to make your special day go off without a hitch. Due to the fact that this was a larger destination wedding (80+ guests!), it was so important that Corinne understood my vision so she could act as our eyes & ears on the ground. She ensured nothing fell through the cracks with vendors, details, and logistics while I was hundreds of miles away in New York. When the big day came, Corinne was there to roll everything out and all we had to do was show up and enjoy the time with all our friends and family. Partner with Corinne - you’ll be in great hands and you won’t regret it!"
-Kelli and Justin Kahn, Spring 2013
"Corinne Farinola was wonderful and extremely responsive to all of my needs. We spoke on the phone as well as communicated through email. From what I’ve heard & seen; to plan a destination wedding can sometimes be stressful. Not for me at all, and I think it was due to the expertise of Corinne. I didn’t have to worry about a thing. It was a pleasure working with her. She connected me with the right vendors for our needs. Our wedding was perfect. I had no worries because I knew everything would be taken care of by Corinne. I had no stress - my wedding guests said they hadn’t seen a bride so stress free before! Everyone had a great time & that was all I asked for. You won’t regret selecting Corinne as your wedding planner."

"We considered several destinations for our 'dream destination wedding'. We ultimately chose Corinne and the beautiful island of St. Croix and we couldn't be happier. Corinne is a true professional. Everything about our special day was meticulously planned and flawlessly executed; from pre-wedding planning, music, ceremony to dinner and reception. My family and friends raved about the wedding, the island and, of course, our personal wedding planner. It is clear that Corinne has a passion for planning that is unequaled. Thank you Corinne for making our wedding one to remember!"
