Corinna on the “Wall of Fame” at the Palm!

Corinna's Portrait on the wall at The Palm

The Palm restaurant in Buckhead has long been one of my favorite haunts, and their steaks have become my go to meal after any sporting event.

So I was thrilled and honored when they asked to include my Portrait on their wall of fame!

The hardest part of the whole process was waiting to see what the artist came up with!

When the day for the reveal finally came, The Palm was kind enough to host a little party for me.

They kept my portrait under wraps for most of the night.

Finally, they brought out a step-ladder for me and I was allowed to rip down the paper that hid it.

I was thrilled!

My good friend, photographer Scott Reeves was there with his camera and caught my reaction moments after seeing the portrait for the first time.

Corinna with fiancée David Cook

It was such a great night, I used it as an opportunity to announce my engagement to David Cook.

David did it in the form of a toast, confirming “the worst kept secret in Atlanta”.

I couldn’t have been happier.

My girlfriend, Nicole Mitchell was one of the wonderful folks who turned out to help me celebrate the night.

We’re both fan’s of clothing designer, Vanessa Vinci, who provided my electric blue dress for the night!
