Corey & Kristen

We’re Getting Married

Welcome to our site! We’ve created this website to inform you all the stuff we could not fit on the invitation. Please keep an eye out for updates & information as it comes along. We can’t wait to share our special day with you all!


Corey & Kristen

Bride & Groom

Kristen Marie Smith

The moment I met Corey, I knew that he had the biggest heart and a genuine love for his family and his friends. We did not know each other very well, but the first day we met, I felt like I’d known him for years. I was not having the best of days, however Corey managed to make me laugh and put a smile back on my face. To this day, Corey still makes me giggle everyday with his entertaining and lively personality. He never lets me go a day without letting me know how much he loves me and how beautiful I am. I can’t wait to marry the love of my life and my best friend. I love you with all my heart baby. Here’s to growing old together!

Corey Mitchell Bringas

Kristen is my best friend. There is not a day that goes by that I am not thankful to have her in my life. She's so supportive of me, always being there when I need her. She makes me happy. Doing things for her makes me feel good. I love making her smile. I love sharing the world with her. Teaching her about things I love makes me happy. She loves to dance and be silly. We will randomly jump around and dance at home. I can look at her and know what she's thinking. I can't wait to explore the world with her. She's an amazing woman and I can't imagine my world without her.

Groomsman & Bridesmaids

Connor Bringas

Best Man

Connor & I have shared many adventures together, from Costa Rica to Hawaii! Connor is my younger brother & amazing friend. He is someone I can turn to when I'm in need. He's there for me, as I am for him. He has a wonderful wife Cassandra and a beautiful daughter Hailey Marie. They are expecting their second child, slated to be born on my birthday!

Lindsay Smith

Maid of Honor

``I'm the the girl who bursts out laughing in dead silence because of something that happened yesterday.``
Lindsay is my oldest sister and Maid of Honor! Lindsay is someone that I’ve looked up to my whole life. I have an unbreakable bond with her that can never be broken, and I’ve been stuck to her like glue ever since I was little. She is a wonderful mother to my nephew Kadem (my ring bearer!) who I absolutely ADORE. I’m so happy she will be by my side when I say “I do!”

Jason Hafer


Jason is one of my best friends. We have known each other since college. We have been known to have dance-off contests in the club & generally be silly. Often we can be found going on long rants about non-sense. Jason has an amazing wife Licia & beautiful daughter Farah. They are amazing people to have in our lives.

Meghan Magill


``I'm bringing the magic to the party!``
Meghan is my beautiful younger sister! She is a hard worker in school and a dedicated esthetician. She has a passion for making people feel beautiful and love their skin. I love how silly we are together and how we can make each other laugh until we cry! I’m so happy she will be a part of my big day!

Chad Nagel


Bringas and I have spent the last handful of years doing everything from Cam preps to jumping off trampolines wearing led filled, floor length cloaks. I am honored to be apart of this next big adventure with him and he couldn't have picked a better partner then Kristen.
Love you both.

What can I say about Chad? He's freaking awesome! We first bonded on a trip to Coachella, which quickly lead to us tromping around the Black Rock Desert & jumping off roofs into pools. We enjoy working together, going on double dates with our ladies, & dancing on ladders while listening to Disclosure.

Chelsea Hardesty


Chelsea is my beautiful stepsister! She has the biggest heart for taking care of animals and finding good homes for them. We love being silly together by throwing unexpected dance parties in the kitchen of our parents house! I cant wait to throw down some moves together at my wedding!

Armand Barilotti


``Corey and I love a good adventure, whether it’s local lobster diving or heading down to Baja on a surf safari. Our adventures solidified our friendship and made Corey someone I can always count on. I’m so honored and stoked to be able to celebrate the start of his next adventure with Kristen!``
Armand & I were great friends from the second we met. We shared many interests- surfing, diving & the occasional beer. He's a fantastic friend, who's always there when I need him. We don't always get to hang out and talk, as we are too often underwater sharing hand signals and catching lobsters instead!

Cassidy Paige Bringas


``Diagnosis: Wedding fever
Nurse’s orders; treat with:
24 hrs loud music
12 hrs dancing
16 oz ETOH (alcohol)
5 cheery toasts
3-course meal
2 slices cake
1 “kiss the bride”
Results: Enduring I DOs and Til death do us part! ``

Cassie will soon be my sister in-law, however I already feel like we’ve been family for years. Cassie is very smart and has a driven personality. Her hard work and dedication to becoming a nurse pushes me to do my best in school, and to work hard for what I want in life. I’m so happy she will be a part of Corey and I’s special day!

Orlin Ivanov


``I met our little tornado in a classroom full with confused students and it’s been a crazy fun road full with many adventures since then. Can’t wait to see what the next storm is going to bring.``
Shmorlin Shmorlinov Shmorlinov- guyyy! Orlin's been a close friend since college. We've become business partners & co-workers. We've soldered and created together. We've shared rooms & camped in the wilderness. He's taught me how to cook Bulgarian meals & toast by saying ``Nazdráve``. He's the best.

Licia Hafer


``If you're always trying to be normal, you'll never know how amazing you can be!``
Licia probably has the biggest heart out of anyone I know! From the day we met, she’s always made me feel nothing less than special and always welcomes me with the biggest hug every time I see her. She is such a beautiful person, inside and out and I am so happy and honored that she agreed to be one of my bridesmaids!

The Officiant
Papa Dan

Initially, Kristen & I were stumped on who to have as our Officiant. We have so many wonderful friends and family members. We did not want a stranger to marry us, but rather, someone who we are connected to and love. When Kristen presented the idea of Papa Dan we looked at each other and immediately agreed it was a great idea! When Kristen asked Papa Dan if he would marry us, his response was immediate & excited! We could not think of a better person to be up there with us on our big day!
