I was so thrilled!
I was so thrilled with the service we received from Yvonne Tanner of Something Blue Weddings and Events! My parents learned about her from a family friend and then referred her to us. We were so happy with the work she did for us! She was always easy to reach and was so pleasant throughout the entire planning process.

5 stars for Something Blue Weddings and Events
Yvonne Tanner of Something Blue Weddings and Events was our month-of coordinator. She is extremely knowledgeable and was a delight to work with. She handled all our vendor contracts, created a seamless timeline for everyone to follow, coordinated our rehearsal and wedding, and was there to assist with clean up after our wedding. She was always easy to get in touch with and we just loved working with her!

Yvonne deserves 5 stars (and then some!)
My wedding venue requires a day-of wedding coordinator and my fiance and I hired Yvonne Tanner. She came as a recommendation from the venue and was very pleasant to work with. I didn't think I needed a wedding planner, but I was wrong. She thought of things neither one of us had thought of and made everything so wonderful! Yvonne deserves 5 stars (and then some!).
We have worked with Something Blue Weddings and Events at multiple events and they have provided nothing but great service and assistance to us and both of our clients. We would recommend them for all of your event planning needs.
I am very happy to write this endorsement for Yvonne from "Something Blue" as it was my great pleasure working with her and I hope we will have some great things to create together in the future! I will be happy to have her plan one of my future clients wedding as they will surely be in good hands! It was great meeting you here, Yvonne!
