Tara will make your life 100x easier!

We are so grateful that we found Tara to help us coordinate our wedding. We purchased the "day of" service but were so pleased that this actually includes consultations, support, and advice. I was so grateful to have Tara to email throughout the wedding planning process. Our wedding in Fairfax was a destination wedding so being so far away can make things feel scary, but Tara's support and advice brought us so much comfort and ease. Tara is very evidently experienced and knowledgable in her field, because she reminded me of things I never thought about and gave me referrals to other vendors as needed. I also loved the planning website that she gave us access to because it helped keep me on schedule during planning. Lastly, Tara is so sweet and friendly. We enjoyed working with her and my family & friends commented on how kind, organized, and calm she was throughout the wedding day. She truly made me feel like everything was taken care of throughout our wedding day and she stayed until everyone was gone.
THANK YOU TARA! We could not have done this without you.

Outstanding Coordination by Heather of Ybarra Events

We had the pleasure of working with Heather Bair from Ybarra Events as our "month of" wedding planner for our October 2023 wedding. Heather's expertise and professionalism in event planning were evident from the start. She brought a level of organization and foresight that was both reassuring and impressive, making it clear that we could trust her to execute our vision flawlessly.

Despite the inherent stress of wedding planning, Heather's methodical approach significantly eased our worries. Her communication was clear and effective, utilizing a mix of emails, planned zoom calls, texts and wedding planning tools to plan and orchestrate our big day. Heather's knack for asking essential questions, ones we hadn't thought to ask ourselves, was particularly invaluable. This attention to detail ensured that every aspect of our wedding was considered and carefully planned, and wow did all that work pay off!

On the wedding day, Heather's management was extraordinary. She operated like a well-oiled machine, providing support and efficiently handling every event detail. She communicated effectively, involving us in decisions as needed while smoothly keeping the day on track.

We wholeheartedly recommend Heather Bair at Ybarra Events to any couple seeking a skilled and personable wedding planner. Her invaluable contribution to our wedding was deeply appreciated, and we would gladly choose Heather and Ybarra Events for any future event planning needs.
