Tara is an absolute gem in so many ways. We had no idea what kind of services we wanted going into the wedding and Tara worked with us to create the perfect package - day of coordinating and florals. She was so patient, accommodating and kind - not to mention we wanted to be best friends with her right away!
Tara was very transparent throughout the whole process and provided a lot of very useful tools & guidance. She gave us detailed breakdowns of all services so we knew exactly what we could expect. Leading up to the wedding, Tara reached out to all our vendors and created relationships with them - taking a huge weight off our shoulders. We felt really comfortable handing over the reigns to such a competent & thoughtful professional. Tara then created the most glorious timeline of our wedding - it was truly a thing of beauty. This timeline laid out what every vendor & person in the wedding was expected to do and when - from set up to break down. All our vendors were blown away by Tara's preparedness and dedication.
and the FLOWERS my goodness - we told her we wanted lots of greens, air plants, ferns, succulents and some blooms and she knocked it out of the park. We had the most magical tablescapes and incredible arrangements. Tara came with us to the venue before the wedding and had the brilliant idea of creating a floral canopy between the two trees we would be married under - it was AMAZING. She also created a hay couch area with floating lanterns and blankies that was a perfect spot to have a drink and get your picture taken. The bouquets she made were perfection. She thought of everything and had great ideas.
We are so thrilled with everything that Tara did for us and could not recommend her enough. You will be in great hands - she is the absolute best.

Truly the Best!
There is just so many good things to say about working with Tara, but let me just first start out by saying WE LITERALLY COULD NOT HAVE PULLED IT OFF WITHOUT HER! We hired Tara a month out from our wedding day, and it was the best decision we could have made (besides getting married of course ;o) ). In fact, we wish we had hired her from day 1 of planning after we got engaged.
From the very beginning it was clear to see how great of an experience it was going to be working together - she put together the most thoughtful and meticulous contract for us to review after our initial call - that literally laid out everything she would be doing for us leading up, and on the day of. The contact language wasn't the typical legal verbiage, but rather laid out realistic picture of exactly what needed to happen in the month to come. I can't say how much this just put me at ease immediately.
Tara is also fun fun FUN and has the biggest heart. In all the good moments (and stressful moments!) she was there and was really empathetic and did not make me feel silly or self conscious about questions or decisions. As a creative myself, Tara acted as a true PARTNER throughout our time together and worked with me on all the little details and crazy ideas we had. One thing that I also love about Tara is how honest she is - she isn't just a yes girl - even though we were her client and clearly she wanted us to be happy - she did not hesitate to give us her honest opinion and feedback during the process - that is an invaluable trait for a planner to have I think ...as a bride you think you know what you want, but you need someone like Tara to help translate that into something that will actually work for your space, crowd, aesthetic, etc etc.
Tara also assisted us with the rehearsal and was really great at taking the reigns and letting the bridal party and family know when and where they needed to be. She also has a wonderful team of professionals that she brings on (depending on the size of the wedding), and we got the pleasure of working with Peter, who behind the scenes helped make all the magic happen throughout the evening, including making sure my husband and I had a drink in hand during the toasts.
In a nutshell, you will be DELIGHTED to work with her and I would recommend her to my closest friends and family any day. She has a real passion for what she does and it shows. She is such a perfect combination of creative and yet super organized and meticulous so that none of the details are ever forgotten - which is a hard combination to find!
She will bring a certain magic and sparkle to your wedding that you won't find anywhere else!

Mixed Company NYC went above and beyond, definitely exceeding my expectations. Tara is such a gem!! She is so sweet - really cares about her clients, answers any and all questions/concerns. This is something that really stood out to me about her - I was pretty stressed out planning our wedding, yet Tara put me at complete ease and I knew I was in good hands. Her attention to detail and ability to create masterpieces is honestly unbelievable - her arrangements are stunning! I love, love, LOVE this company and would 1000% use again! :)
We've had the pleasure of working with Mixed Company on numerous events, & it's always a wonderful experience! Tara always surprises with a little creative genius where you least except it, & her team is such a joy to work with.
I had the privilege of working on an event with Tara and Mixed Company NYC at Handsome Hollow in upstate NY. She was really thorough and easy to work with both leading up to and during the event. She put together a beautiful, detailed event timeline for the vendors that was second to none. During the ceremony Tara gave me perfect cues that made it easy to transition from one song to the next. The bride and groom were very pleased, and so was I! Looking forward to working together again soon.
