    Look No Further - Tara is YOUR person!

    I met Tara a few years ago before I was engaged and said to myself, “when you are planning your wedding one day that is YOUR person!” Tara was my person from start to finish. Tara answered all of my questions, took care of all of my quirks and was just a calming force in my world of crazy. You see, I also plan other couples’ weddings for a living, and I needed someone who could take my vision and make it come to life. Tara did all of that and much more.
    With Engaged Event Management running my day I was beyond calm and confident in Tara and the entire team. I felt like I could relax, turn my brain off and just really soak in the entire day. That’s a true testament coming from me because I am TYPE A to the fullest. The day of the wedding you would have thought Tara was a part of my family! Fitting right in and making sure all were taken care of. Everyone complimented Tara, Rachel and the other Tara on how lovely and attentive they all were.
    If I could provide Tara and her team a million stars I would. Our wedding day was nothing short of spectacular and a huge part of that was due to Engaged Event Management!

    Excellent day of coordinator!

    Engaged Management did an amazing job as my Day Of coordinator help! Tara and Kim were awesome from the planning stage all through the day of the wedding, answering all of my questions and bringing up things I hadn't even thought about. The day of my wedding ended up being a bit chaotic due to bad weather and some mishaps, but Kim was there to make sure I stayed calm and helped to handle any issues. I am so happy we decided to hire them for our big day!

    Amazing time with Tara!

    My now-husband and I hired Tara as our day-of-coordinator for our wedding. Even though her title was "Day-of-coordinator," she did so much more than just on the day of our wedding! Not only did she help set up and take-down our decor (which looked amazing thanks to her and her assistant, Rachel, and they made sure it got all got packed back up safely), she also helped with vendor recommendations, our timeline, coordinating with all of our vendors leading up to our day, providing recommendations on decor, and so so much more.

    Tara's attention to detail was phenomenal with her asking questions (from her huge and extremely helpful list) that we haven't even thought about yet. She was extremely pleasant and helpful to work with and we are so pleased we had her by our side on our big day! While my husband and I had ideas of how everything should be set-up, Tara made it come to life and truly helped us out with anything we asked on the day of our wedding (even bringing drinks when she saw us empty-handed)!

    She was so accommodating and helpful throughout the night. She brought us a tray of our hors d'oeuvres since we were walking around mingling during the cocktail hour. Also her amazing emergency suitcase assisted not just us, but even our guests! She also worked to adjust her event management to our style. She was so flexible and asked if we wanted to confirm every detail with her or if it was okay to for her to have free rein over certain details, depending on what worked best for us, which we truly appreciated! We have no complaints about our wedding and were blown away by how fantastic everything went, all thanks to the Engaged Management Team. Thank you again for everything!
