I can't thank Taylor enough for being a part of our special day. She rescued me a few times that day. I couldn't imagine doing our special day with anyone else. I would highly recommend her to any one. Her price was great and affordable and she took the stress off of me making sure everything was perfect for our special day. Thanks so much The Wedding Tea, LLCSent on 11/04/2015

I was impressed by Taylor from the very first meeting. We were living in Houston and planning a wedding in New Orleans. We drove up there for 1 day to get our marriage license and she made time to drive 2 hours to meet with us and get acquainted. She was very well-prepared and professional. She had all of the information needed to properly discuss our wedding plans on-hand, and brought up questions that we would have otherwise not known to consider. We visited the wedding venue together which helped us get a better sense of how everything would go. We accomplished a lot on the short time frame we had, but what made me breathe a sigh of relief and relax for the first time in months was when she pulled out her Wedding Day Emergency Kit list. On the day of the wedding, she has everything on-hand from a fake ring in case someone forgets theirs, to a little sewing kit in case of any dress emergencies. It was obvious that she would be prepared for just about anything.Sent on 11/02/2015
The week leading up to our outdoor wedding, the weather called for 90% chance of rain all weekend due to Hurricane Patricia. Taylor kept our morale high and stayed very positive about the situation. That was what we needed at the time it meant a lot. It turned out the weather was perfect that weekend, along with everything else.
My personal touch on the wedding was the music playlist, and Taylor understood how important it was to me and helped make sure everything was played how and when I wanted it.
On the wedding day, Taylor and her mom, who was assisting her at the time, made both sides of the wedding party feel comfortable and had patience for my groomsmen that were a little too excited to be in New Orleans. Taylor kept it fun and light, and always had a smile on her face, even when dealing with some of the vendor’s mistakes. When you are overwhelmed with keeping the wedding on track and guests happy, it is nice to look over and see that your wedding planner has it all under control.

Taylor was a lifesaver!! Taylor came in at 30 days before my daughters wedding at Brennan's and totally took over the final details. Taylor followed up with all of the vendors, did a fabulous job of co-ordinating all of the events and details, including supervision and decorating the venue at Brennan's. Taylor took charge the day of the wedding beginning at the hotel for Bridal party pictures, the ceremony, dinner,and cocktail reception at Brennan 's and the Second line Dance at the end of the evening. My daughter loved working with Taylor and felt at ease with her, knowing that Taylor understood the look and style of the wedding she wanted. Taylor was both professional and charming, everyone involved in the wedding enjoyed working with Taylor. I would absolutely recommend Taylor to anyone planning a wedding or any other special event.Sent on 11/13/2015
