Absolutely the best!
I cannot begin to praise Tara Ybarra enough for all she did for me and my family during my daughter's recent wedding in Geyserville, California. Tara is incredibly organized, responsible, responsive, tactful and kind all at the same time. Everything she promised she'd do, she delivered on! She was the first one to get to the church and the last person to leave the reception. Her quiet efficiency impressed not only me at the wedding reception but also several of our guests that commented to me on her competency. Every time in the 8 months of planning this wedding that I reached out to Tara, she answered quickly and knowledgeably. Planning this wedding from a distance turned out not to be a chore with Tara's help. She gave us a heads up on a problem vendor we had hired and quickly recommended another saving us some major frustration and not to mention, money.Sent on 10/26/2019
I cannot think of one thing negative about Tara. You absolutely cannot go wrong hiring her. My daughter and I both are missing her. She had become one of the family!!
With deep appreciation, thank you Tara!
Ybarra Events's reply:Paula, it was an absolute pleasure to get to know you and your family! You're all wonderful and I'm so grateful to have been able to help you with your daughter's wedding day. Miss you already!

The only reason I hired a wedding coordinator was because our venue required it. That being said, I AM SO GLAD I DID! Tara was incredibly professional, kind, and creative. We hired her for her "day of" service package. We got so much more than just a day! I cannot say enough about her and her partner.Sent on 01/20/2020
Ybarra Events's reply:Thank you so much Wendy! We loved helping you with your wedding day! I feel so lucky that you hired me. Lucky for me, your venue needed a planner! Ha!

Ybarra Events is the best!!!
We absolutely loved working with Tara as our wedding coordinator. We hired her for her day-of services, but she honestly went above and beyond what we had expected. She was so organized, calm, and knowledgable - qualities that any great event planner should have but she truly was top notch. We cannot recommend her enough!Sent on 01/21/2020
