Our daughters June 1, 2018 wedding was held at a rather unconventional venue where a wedding had never been held, and we were vey worried about how to pull it off. We hired Taia and Inspired Occasions to help us with our wedding vision. Taia was fabulous with her ideas and hands on help the day of the wedding. She even ran out to rent extra table cloths on her own credit card because the venue did not have them. Tara was very responsive to emails and phone calls and took very good care of everything we needed. I would highly recommend Taia and her team!

Taia and her team were the most professional and responsive team that took all the stress out of wedding planning there ever could be! I planned a wedding from VA in NY and she made everything so simple. I purchased the day of package but she also allowed me to add on services such as reviewing contracts and reading the fine print for me, contacted vendors for me who I hadn't heard from, negotiated prices and helped create a custom menu that fit our budget! That barely even scrapes the top of what she did for us. The big day was stress free and flawless (at least if there was a problem I sure didn't know about it) . The personal touches her team added were perfect and she kept me on point the whole process "hey Che did you get your... Did you hear from?.. " and I am the kind of person that needs that kind of reminding! I would recommend her over and over again. Even when I was at the point of frustration with my own family or vendors she was there to tell me everything was fine and we had this! If I could pay to have her at all of my friends weddings I would.
Thank you Taia for everything the day was AMAZING!

Recommended on Wedding Wire: We have been delighted to have Inspired Occasions work with several couples who have gotten married at the Historic Barns of Nipmoose. Most recently Sarah Shellinger and her assistants helped with two very successful weddings. Their attention to detail was noteworthy. They accommodating, flexible and well organized. We look forward to working with them again.

We love working with Taia at Inspired Occasions! Super detailed and always communicated well with us leading up to the wedding and during the wedding day. Always nice to know you can rely on a planner day of the wedding to help things run smoothly.

We have worked with Taia at Inspired Occasions on multiple weddings and has always been a pleasure. She is kind, professional and prepared to make your wedding go smoothly. Every wedding that we have worked with her has been a success.

As an on site wedding coordinator, I can say working with Taia makes our job a pure dream. She is organized, very friendly, easy to work with and is as concerned as we are about making everything perfect for the bride & groom. We are happy to partner with Taia on any wedding and always look forward to working with her. She is a true professional and I would highly recommend her.
