    Wonderful planner!

    Tara and her team were AMAZING! I hired Tara for day of coordination but she did so much more! I'm so glad I had her. She asked questions I had never even thought about which made the wedding day go so smoothly. Everything turned out exactly how I wanted and looked fantastic. Not only did she deal with the vendors at a point when I was completely over the wedding planning, she made sure the ballroom looked flawless and it matched my vision completely. She also provided a detailed timeline making the wedding day stress free for us. I can't imagine how everything would have gone without all her help. If you are looking for a planner I highly recommend Tara!
