Courtney Ajinça is a celebrity event planner who has made a career in transforming events to adventurous and visually captivating experiences for guests.

From social celebrations, corporate events, children parties, wedding ceremonies, and more, she provides tailored and luxury experiences for her clients by using top of the line design elements.

As the world adapts to the coronavirus pandemic, entrepreneurs are finding alternative ways to deliver their services as many state leaders have implemented mandatory stay-at-home orders.

As a result, people are delaying or canceling special events with their loved ones.  

That’s where Ajinça is filling the gap by helping people host virtual events during this health crisis.


“Believe it or not, the mandate doesn’t have to stop couples from saying ‘I do’ on their intended wedding date,” Ajinca told Black Enterprise. “They just have to be more creative and think of ways that they can observe their special day virtually.”

Using platforms such as Zoom and Instagram, Ajinca is now curating digital experiences for her clients

“The show must go on, and I will do everything in my power to make it happen,” she added. “Ms. Corona’ has come in and shaken the world up. With events being canceled all over the world, I’ve been directly affected. This was unforeseen but I have found ways to adapt to this time. I now offer virtual weddings and event planning where I completely plan and design your event virtually and in accordance with social distancing.”
