Stress-free planning


We bring space and people together with thoughtfulness, intimacy and joy. We are Tara, Courtney and Paulina and together we are Scheme Events. We are a team of memory creators, storytellers, idea generators and ultimately wedding planners striving to bring excellence in this season of life. A steady pulse on innovation, a passion for love and a calming presences has allowed Scheme Events to flourish for over a decade.

We help kind hearted, fun-loving, authentic couples intentionally create a wedding experience unique to their own style, passions and personality. Since 2010, no two Scheme weddings have ever looked or felt alike because they aren’t our weddings, but yours. Our diverse portfolio is a testament to our love for celebrating different faiths and cultures valued by our couples. And like you, we live for the real moments, unapologetic emotion and internal gratefulness of those around us.

Scheme Events has worked with some of the most accomplished vendors in the business, forging solid relationships within the industry. With the latest trends in design, catering and entertainment at our disposal, we plan and design both the finer details and broader experiences. Our organization, communication and processes deliver a streamlined experience for our busy couples.

Our promise to you is that we will always be generous with our time, support you every step of the journey, and wholeheartedly be invested in you, your family and friends and your lasting love. We value the trust our couples place in us and work diligently everyday to maintain it.

Scheme Events is a passionate advocate for ending child marriage. Raising young girls of our own, we are thankful for the environment our daughters inherited, but we are not blind to the 12 million girls who are married before the age of 18 each year. That’s why a percentage of our sales goes to VOW who ensures that 100% of funds raised go directly to grassroots organizations working to end child marriage and advance girls’ rights. We hope our efforts encourage young girls to realize their dreams, on their terms, in their time.

The Absolute Best Wedding Designer and Planner in the Business!

Tara from Scheme Events was absolutely incredible! She helped with everything! We live in Boston (I grew up in Las Vegas) and more than 95% of our guests were either traveling from the East Coast or from outside of the Vegas area, so we needed full-service wedding design and planning. Outside of the entertainment we wanted to have and the venues where we wanted to hold our church ceremony and reception, we felt lost initially. Tara shepherded us through the entire experience with grace and ease in less than 10 months!

Tara more than exceeded our expectations! So much so that we ended up giving her more of a "bonus" vs. a "tip." What really sets Tara apart is her kindness, compassion, flexibility, expertise, calm composure, creative problem-solving skills, and all-around five star service. Our wedding was a dream. Our guests said that it was the best wedding they'd ever been to and that they had so much fun.

Thanks to Tara, I was able to maintain a very low amount of stress headed into the wedding and throughout our wedding week. I would recommend Scheme Events to anyone, but especially to busy professionals who are looking for a high-class and fun wedding experience delivered by top-notch and exceptionally kind professionals!

Dream wedding with Tara from Scheme

Grace, calm, and creativity, Tara embodies everything we were hoping to find in a wedding planner. We would 100% recommend her and the Scheme Events team to other couples. Our wedding was truly the best day of our lives, surpassing our expectations and filling us with joy, love, and laughter. We will always be grateful to Tara for giving us the wedding of our dreams. Drawing inspiration from our story and that of our families, Tara transformed our ideas and wishes into a cohesive, beautiful event that felt authentic to us as a couple. Along with placing my husband’s grandmother’s origami on the cocktail tables, she thought of placing playing cards matching our stationary design and spoons at the tables as a nod to how my husband and I met. Other highlights include her ceremony design, which featured a spring garden-inspired floral arch that could be repurposed for our reception, helping us be efficient with our floral budget and fulfilling my wish for all the color. Going with Scheme’s full service planning package with Tara gave us 15 months of stress-free fun, a creative outlet through which my husband and I grew closer as a couple, discovering our mutual tastes and planning ways to care for and delight our family and friends so they could enjoy the night with us after traveling cross-country and internationally for our destination wedding in Las Vegas. Our number one priority was guest experience, so we were overjoyed to receive heartfelt praise and thanks from many guests, some of whom said it was the highlight of their year so far and in the top 5 weddings they’d been to (the latter compliment from the longest married couple present). We even inspired some of our friends to plan for their own wedding someday, one friend expressing the hope that hers will be similar to ours in terms of overall feeling and vibe.

If Tara is available for your date, I would encourage you to meet with her! Don’t hold back on sharing your hopes and vision–as other reviews describe, you can count on Tara to provide you with choices that feel fresh and true to you and your partner’s spirit and style. She’ll also provide guidance on how to think about your decisions, from vendors to design, all while respecting your feedback and budget.

Absolutely Incredible!

Let me first start off by saying how unbelievably impressive Scheme Events was from the moment we retained them to plan our wedding. Our wedding planner, Francesca Torrella, was helpful in every facet of the planning of our wedding. At our first meeting, she was extremely attentive and captured our vision so well. She helped us prioritize the most important features of our wedding to help develop a workable budget that fit our needs. She also helped find amazing vendors and facilitated contact with each of them to ensure that the wedding planning was as seamless as possible. She even located a photographer/videographer company out of California that was absolutely perfect for us and totally captured the vision of our wedding. The careful details and attention that Francesca gave to us in the months and days leading up to our special day was nothing short of spectacular.

Francesca met with us quarterly, in person to discuss the wedding details as the day came closer. She was always timely in her responses to our e-mails and maintained a positive attitude throughout the entire planning process. When unexpected circumstances arose in the days leading up to the wedding, Francesca was there for us to provide great solutions to ensure that the wedding and reception were amazing.

Approximately one month from our wedding date, Francesca put together sample layouts for our reception. We also met her at our venue to help us make the right decisions regarding the layout. Needless to say, this team was exquisite and we never felt any stress throughout the months and days leading up to our wedding.

On the date of the wedding, Francesca and her amazing team went above and beyond to ensure that the day went perfectly. They kept us on schedule, but were not intrusive during the wedding and reception. They really allowed us to have a great time and experience no stress or worries.

Rest assured that when any couples ask us who we recommend to plan their weddings, we will not hesitate to wholeheartedly recommend Scheme Events. The professionalism and awesome planning services they provided throughout are unmatched in Las Vegas.
