Best Decision We Made

Hiring Tara and her team was hands down the best decision we made on our wedding planning journey! Her expertise and vendor recommendations made planning stress free. Each vendor she recommended had a unique style and she easily accommodated our varying budget per service. Most of all, the day of our wedding ran seamless with her help! She managed the timeline and every detail perfectly! I am so thankful for her hard work and attention to detail. She made it possible for us to focus solely on celebrating with our friends and family.

Highly recommended!

Terra Vida Events was the best investment we made while planning our wedding! Tara and Lauren were so helpful from day 1 of the planning process. They are an incredibly talented team and know exactly how to plan a beautiful wedding. I don’t know what I would have done without them, they knew all of the small details of what goes into planning a wedding that I never would have thought of. Throughout the entire process they were both very responsive and helpful with anything I needed! Not to mention so kind and welcoming! We got so many compliments on how beautiful our wedding was and we owe it all to Terra Vida Events. Tara took away all of my stress and worry when it came to planning, she took care of everything! We are forever grateful for Tara and Lauren, they exceeded our expectations and planned us the most perfect day.

Tara and her team are amazing

Tara and her team helped make my wedding day free from anxiety, misunderstanding and mishaps. She wrangled some amazing vendors and her vision for my wedding surpassed my expectations while also keeping us in budget. All my guests and party have only good things to say.
Most importantly, she is kind and very easy to work with. I actually got to enjoy and remember our day.

My name is Tara, I am the owner and creator of Terra Vida Events and design.

Creating beautiful spaces is my passion, bringing people together is my joy. I believe there is nothing more important in life than who we spend it with and the memories we build together. Whether I am decorating for you or working as your coordinator my goal is to create an enchanted environment where only the most human, honest and heartfelt memories can grow.

I have a strong background in planning and organizing as a wild land Fire Fighter and Incident commander. I have been an artist my whole life and a practicing artisan for the past 7 years. I find deep satisfaction in bringing together elements of design, a high bar of refinement and the raw beauty of the desert.

Lauren Larson
Assistant Planner

My name is Lauren and I am the assistant planner at terra vida events and design.

I moved to Moab in 2016, and my background is primarily in outdoor education, specializing in logistics. While I love spending time outside and exploring canyons and rivers, I’ve realized that sharing those experiences with others is what is truly important in life. That passion in combination with a well organized trip has led me down the path of wedding planning. To me, weddings are one of the few times to gather ALL your people in one place, the people who helped you grow and stood by you through it all and are now standing by you as you say “I do”. It’s my goal for you to relish in that community as much as possible on your big day and leave the small details to me! When I’m not helping couples you can find me throwing sticks for my chocolate lab, getting my fly rod stuck in trees, and coaching at a local gym in Moab. I can’t wait to work with you!
