    Tammy is awesome! She immediately emails or calls you back and is always there to answer any questions you have. She helped out so much from easing differing opinions, to reminding you of things you would have never known to do, and was so key in directing our ceremony. I loved using her because I could handle most of the planning for the wedding but needed someone there to remind me of things I should be doing, not to mention it was nice having someone in my court, saying "Whatever you want to do is fine by me". She relieved so much stress for me at the rehearsal and on the day of the wedding... I was able to relax and not worry about a thing. She is so organized and on top of everything and has anything you may find yourself needing in that bag of hers! If you're a worrier like I am, she is amazing at reassuring you everything is going to be fine and if something does go wrong she is there to take care of it before you even realize it's happened. She made my wedding day so amazing for not only me but my family as well because we were all able to relax and enjoy ourselves because we knew she was on top of it all.

    Absolutely amazing

    I cannot say enough about how amazing Tammy and her team are to work with. Planning a wedding is not easy, and planning one during a pandemic was its own sort of crazy. Tammy worked around the clock to make sure our wedding was safe and successful. Her and the team went above and beyond making sure our safety protocols were in place and to be that support system we needed. We got married in June, and while we were taking pictures outside, Kathy was out there with us providing cold waters and a cooling fan in between shots. Everything they did was top notch and professional, including recommending some amazing vendors to work with. Our wedding day was perfect and Tammy and team pulled it off seamlessly. Thank you Special Moments Team for everything you did for us!

Tammy  Waterman, MWP

Tammy Waterman, MWP

Owner / Lead Dream Maker

A modern-day fairy godmother and all-around dream maker, Master Wedding Planner Tammy Waterman, created Special Moments in 2004 with a desire to give couples the wedding experience they deserved, complete with gorgeous details, stress-free planning, and expert management.

Tammy is a long-standing member of the Association of Bridal Consultants, and as a Master Wedding Planner holds one of the organization’s top honors. She is the recipient of a Miss Dorothy Heart Award for passion in the wedding industry, and a member of the Inaugural Advisory Panel for Wedding Planner Magazine. Special Moments has repeatedly earned annual recognition from WeddingWire.com and has been featured in such noted blogs and publications as Style Me Pretty, Every Last Detail, Glamour & Grace, The Knot, and Munaluchi Bridal.

Tammy’s favorite part of any wedding day is seeing her couple’s faces when they are walking back up the aisle together and considers it a privilege to be the very first to congratulation them.

In her spare time, you can find Tammy hitting the dance floor with her line-dancing friends, or in the great outdoors “glamping.”

Bill Waterman

“the guy” who designs and creates

Tammy’s husband, Bill, finally conceded and joined the Special Moments Team in 2010 and has not looked back. From being an Ordained Minister, Sandals Certified Specialist, and “the guy” who designs and creates all of the fabulous arches and other interesting pieces to the New Wiseguy for Weddings (it is about the groom too, ladies).

Grooms in need, we have someone on staff to advise and help you survive this thing called a wedding. Need a Romantic Proposal Idea, a great place to take the One you LOVE, or a guy’s last HOO-RAH? Bill is the Wise Guy!!!

Bill is also an Ordained Minister through the Universal Life Church; talk about having a backup plan!
