For a stress-free wedding day, hire wedding coordinator Kara from Tassel and Tarte
When my daughter first mentioned the idea of a wedding coordinator, I thought it was an unnecessary expense being that we are both organized, detail-oriented people. But since the venue required a day-of coordinator, I didn't have much say in the matter. I'm so glad they did! I expected to be very busy the day of the wedding making sure details were attended to, and instead I thoroughly enjoyed the day, soaking it all in and having the time to be present with family and friends. We have Kara Burquest of Tassel and Tarte to thank for this. I so appreciate that she took the lead with all the vendors, so that we didn't have to connect with them regarding all their comings and goings. And I am so grateful that she and her assistant took over all the other details of the day, as well: setting out placecards and desserts, bringing bouquets and florals to and from the church, making sure everyone had their bouts and corsages, attending to various needs and requests from the wedding party and guests, and so on. If anything went wrong that day, I was blissfully unaware of it. I can't begin to tell you how amazing it was at the end of the night to climb into already packed cars. I just don't think I would have had the energy at that point to take down florals and pack away decor and gifts. And everything was done so unobtrusively! I remember looking over the room one time after it got dark and thinking how beautiful it looked in all the candle glow, and the next time I thought about it, everything was gone, loaded up in our cars. Kara was there before the bridal party at 9:00 am and was still there when we left after midnight, yet though the day was long, she was kind and thoughtful and smiling throughout. The entire wedding day was even more than we had hoped for, and we so appreciate Kara's role in this memorable day.Sent on 08/09/2019

Calm and Clear
I run a professional string quartet and have worked with Kara and Tassel & Tarte on several weddings now. A good planner is worth their weight in gold to other vendors like us and Kara is a dream to work with. She communicates promptly and clearly, both in the lead-up to the event and on the day itself, and her calm demeanor helps everyone else feel at ease during a busy event. Kara spends time with us when we get to the venue, talking through the cues for processional music and then in the heat of the moment she cues us exactly how we planned (this doesn't happen with all planners!!). She listens to our concerns, if we have any, and makes everything right. You can't go wrong with Kara on your team!Sent on 07/20/2019
