High school sweethearts Corey Braga and Alexa Boutilier have been together for over 10 years, married since 2012. They had a destination wedding that’s very much in keeping with their style–one thing they love to do is travel! Especially when they can take a road trip in a Honda or Acura (they have two of each.)
Corey has even traveled to get his cars, flying to Georgia to buy his favorite, a 1998 Acura Integra Type R: “I’ve loved that car since I was 14 years old, always wanted one. It was such a good deal, and the owner had really taken care of it,” he says, “It was worth the trip.” Corey drives and shows his Integra in summer, but it stays garaged all winter, when he drives a black Honda Civic: “I’ve modified my Integra, but the Civic stays stock.”
Alexa, a nursing student, favors a 2000 Honda Civic Si. “I’ve always owned Hondas, except for one year, when I tried driving something else and went right back to Honda.” Growing up, her dad owned a garage, so she got a lot of exposure to cars. She now loves to drive her Honda everywhere: Corey and Alexa often take road trips to Newport, Rhode Island, and Cape Cod, Massachusetts. They’ve even driven to an Import Alliance meet that took place in Nashville, TN!
But if you ask Alexa where she really wants to go next in her Honda, her answer is simple. She flashes her smile at Corey and says, “Let’s just drive ’til we hit somewhere with palm trees, hon!”
