Best Wedding Coordinator Ever!

We chose Tara to be the Day of Coordinator for our wedding reception from The Knot and I can't express how happy we are that we did! As an inexperienced bride, I started out a bit nervous because I needed help with planning our ideal wedding reception along with working within the constraints of a modest budget.

However, my worries quickly disappeared after a long phone call with Tara back in December of 2023 (our wedding was scheduled for February 16, 2024). Not only was she super friendly and professional, but she took the time to ask important questions, listen to my ideas, go over budget details and really discuss the specific vision that my husband and I had for our wedding reception. I left that conversation feeling very confident and excited that we had found the right gal for the job!

Soon after, Tara sent over a beautiful visual aid of the concept that she had come up with based on our preferences (color scheme, aesthetic, decor, etc) and made all of the changes we requested based on our feedback. She included me in every step of her planning via text and sent photos every few days which made the whole process incredibly painless. I was consulted before items were purchased and given very helpful advice where needed. Leading up to the wedding, Tara and I were communicating daily and she provided an idea of exactly how everything was going to look via a very thorough schedule/floor plan.

Going into the reception we had an idea of what to expect, but we were totally stunned with the final product - I think the pictures speak for themselves. Tara arranged every detail so beautifully and absolutely blew away our expectations! The event ran very smoothly and Tara was active the entire time making sure that everything was happening on schedule. We received so many compliments from the guests and vendors about how beautiful and fun the night turned out; it was absolutely perfect!

I want to share some ways that Tara went above and beyond for us during this process. She met up with me and my family members multiple times to pick up decor prior to the event, stored all of the decor at her home, ordered decor, transported all of the decor to the reception site, set everything up, granted last minute changes, worked closely with us on the tight budget and was even generous enough to add some of her own FREE decor to the event.

From start to finish Tara was kind, organized, helpful, professional and fun to work with. Not only is she a very talented and creative wedding coordinator, but she is a woman who really puts her heart into the work she does. We cannot recommend her enough and feel very lucky that she made our reception so special!
