Capstone Occasions was our best wedding planning decision!

Tia is INCREDIBLE! Hiring Tia was hands down the best decision we made in our wedding planning, and we can’t imagine our wedding without her.

Tia planned our friends’ wedding a few years ago, and I was so impressed with her eye for design and how attentive she was to every detail – not to mention that teardown at the end of the night was lightning fast! She orchestrated everything expertly, her team is very efficient, and as members of the wedding party, we didn’t have to worry about anything – we were able to just have fun!

When we began planning our own wedding, our number one goal was ease – for ourselves and our family and friends. We didn’t want our loved ones (or us!) to have the stress of arranging and decorating the venue the day of the wedding. We trusted Tia completely to manage the day with care and she knocked it out of the park!!

During the planning process, Tia was very easy to work with – she is incredibly organized, a great communicator, very responsive, and multiple vendors commented on how much they enjoyed working with her too. While we were balancing demands from work and home, she kept us on track with planning in a kind way and made it easy for us to know what to focus on next.

On the day of our wedding, Tia made sure that everything went off as planned – or even better! It was such a gift to walk into the wedding venue and have every careful detail be executed better than I could have envisioned. Because of her, we were able to be fully present throughout our wedding day with our family and friends, knowing that she and the Capstone Occasions team had everything handled. Our wedding was an absolute dream, and Tia was such a big part of that – we are so grateful!

Capstone Occasions is phenomenal!

It was such a delight to work with Capstone Occasions. Tia was on top of every detail during our wedding planning and kept us accountable and organized when it came to our many deadlines. She knew the way to best describe our vision to vendors and created a timeline that had everything that was needed for all vendors. The Capstone Occasions team was a phenomenal asset on the day of our wedding and contributed to a fully worry-free day for my bride and me. Tia even brought us a platter of appetizers during our sunset photos and had our drinks of choice ready at the sweetheart table for us. The Capstone Occasions team was a pleasure to work with, and I would highly recommend them!
