A joy to work with!
I was drawn to Tara and Perfect Planning after meeting them at a vendor event. What lovely, bubbly personalities! Everyone was so warm and down to earth, and genuinely wanted to help. I didn’t feel like they were trying to recruit anyone or sell me anything, they were just being themselves.Sent on 10/12/2019
Tara was wonderful to work with. I was a deer in headlights for a lot of the planning, and she never made me feel like I was dumb or silly for not knowing things. She gave me many great suggestions, and when I had trouble communicating with vendors, she was there to help get things back in order. Her responses were always timely, her organizational skills were flawless, and I VERY much appreciated her client workbook. It had everything I needed to do, when I needed to do it, and spreadsheets for me to fill out once these said things got done. Truly a life saver, especially when you have a million things going on in your head and just can’t keep track of it all.
Despite all the pre-wedding worries, even up to the morning of the event, Tara and her team were always calm, collected, and had solutions for every problem. Every bride gets nervous about how things are going to turn out for the big day, but I can tell you this for sure - my wedding was flawless. And I couldn’t have done it without their help and expertise!
If you want someone who is easy to talk to/ down to earth, but is also organized and really gets things done, I highly recommend Tara and the Perfect Planning team. I started as a client and left feeling like family. Thank you!

Top notch service and expertise!
Perfect planning events was exactly what I needed for planning my wedding. Being in the military and planning initially from overseas, the team was a breath of life saving air! All of the vendors recommended were the best of the best! She worked within my budget and made my experience more than I could have imagined. I was able to take in all the special moments during both the planning and my actual wedding events because I could trust that Tara had everything under control. I highly recommend Tara and her team! They will be forever family and I will gladly utilize them in the future!Sent on 12/17/2018

As a wedding officiant, I don't need to be concerned with the details of the ceremony because Tara Melvin has thought everything through! Before I arrive at the venue the day of the ceremony, Tara has already sent me an email message with the specifics and a detailed timeline. Once on site, she greets me and together we review the procession, ceremony, recession and any announcements I need to make to the guests following the ceremony. Tara's strengths include design, creativity, identifying the appropriate vendors, attention to detail, flexibility and patience. She is the ultimate "go-to" person for any event and especially weddings.
Tara and her crew are second to none. I was blown away not only by the amount of things they took care of, like care packages for the bathrooms, but by all of the things they were prepared for. The day of the wedding, Tara and her team were the go-to people for just about everything, and the had everything from bungee cords to zip ties to duct tape and even mints and deodorant. That level of preparedness proves that Tara is a veteran in this business and her company is a top notch provider for any event.
