    Incredible!

    Where do I begin... Tara at Lotus Events was INCREDIBLE! She is professional, fun, friendly and extremely detail-oriented. She's easy to get ahold of and she's truly an incredible woman. I feel so blessed to have had her as our day-of event coordinator on our wedding day. She made everything go so smoothly and she went above and beyond to make it all so special. I'm so grateful for her expertise and hard work. I don't know how I would've done it without her. I'd highly recommend her to any bride looking for an amazing wedding planner/coordinator in the Austin area. She's amazing and I can't say enough good things about her!

    Amazing beyond words

    Tara from Lotus Events was truly amazing as our month-of wedding planner!!! We met Tara at our best friends wedding over a year ago and immediately knew we wanted her at our wedding one day! She was always a phone call/text away during the planning process, she spoke up for us and was the middle man with our venue coordinator, she went and picked up our cake
    morning of wedding so we didn’t have to pay a delivery fee, she had her assistant go and get my veil that I forgot at my HOUSE(25 mins away ) so I could have it for pictures 😭, she made sure we ate at the reception… when the bar line was getting long and she could tell I was stressing about it she immediately went to help, she packed up our getaway car with all of our belongings, she made sure we had FUN… and SO SO much more!!! I can’t say enough good things about Tara.. you know when the guests at your wedding notice how good your planner is you picked a good one!! Highly highly recommend.

    She does it all

    Tara is the best of the best. We had her for the month of our wedding and she went to every meeting and is worth every penny. She made it so that our wedding day/night went smoothly... legit nothing went wrong. She did it all. Running around all day helping set up, talking to all the vendors, cueing us when to walk, bussled my dress, the list could go on and on. Not only is she amazing at her job but she is the sweetest soul. Honestly, my whole family won't stop talking about how wonderful she is and how much she helped out for the wedding.
