    Simply Perfection

    One of our biggest wedding priorities was making sure we didn’t have to stress about the details on our wedding day. Because of this, one of the first things we did was hire Tara and her team as day/month of coordinator. Best decision ever. Tara was available throughout the process to assist with vendor recommendations or any other questions we had. She always responded promptly and gave us great ideas and insight.

    The weeks/month leading up to the wedding was very calm and relaxed for us because we knew Tara was taking care of ensuring our vendors had the timelines and details they needed. It was truly a huge weight of our backs. It allowed us to enjoy time with our family from out or town the days leading up to the wedding.

    And the day of? Wow. Flawless. Truly flawless. Everything went off perfectly without a single hitch (well none that I was aware of!!). We had such a special day and I’m so grateful that we had the opportunity to soak it all in without stressing over the details.

    I can’t thank Tara and her team enough. We are so appreciative of all of your hard work.

    Engaged Event Management's reply:

    Alex, we just adore you and Sig and your and Sig's day was absolute perfection! We were so honored to be a part of it and most sincerely thank you for your supremely kind words! Thank you and congratulations again! - Tara

    Best wedding planner!

    As anyone who has ever been through the process knows, planning a wedding can be wonderful and fun, but also extremely overwhelming and stressful. Thank goodness for Tara! From our very first phone call, Tara was so positive, detailed oriented and helpful, that my now-husband and I knew we were in the best hands possible. She is professional, responsive, proactive and has this amazing energy that is upbeat and calming at the same time – she has a passion for what she does. Tara was very helpful with recommending vendors and also helped with the many small details that we hadn’t thought of. On the day of the wedding, she made a detailed timeline and breakdown of the day and coordinated it all with our vendors. Everyone was able to stay on the same page, and the whole day flowed seamlessly. She was there not only for my husband and I, but also our family and bridal party as well (all of whom loved her!) We really couldn’t have pulled off our big day without Tara. She was with us every step of the way, and was such a huge support. We will always be grateful to her, and would recommend her in a heartbeat.

    Engaged Event Management's reply:

    Even with the crazy heat that was May 21st it was an incredible day and we were honored to be a part of it with you and your families! Thank you so much for your amazingly kind words, we greatly appreciate it! - Tara & Sheri
