Buddy Ernest Cusick · Getting married on 01/05/2021
Taia was simply awesome -- with my daughter in NYC, my son-in-law finishing his PhD, my wife setting up the Bridal shower in NYC, and she and I fixing the house for the 120 person after party the next day, Taia and her staff ran the wedding to the 10s. It went off without a hitch and we felt so relaxed, she made us feel like guests at our own party!Sent on 05/30/2019
Her organization of matters was complete, thorough, and clear. spreadsheets, timelines, to-do lists / assignments, and keeping everyone on track was so appreciated.
I realize that for a Dad to say these comments may not be the "norm" but Taia and her team did everything. Melissa even helped me get the bow tie on and looking good!

Taia and Team are Amazing!
Tara and the Inspired Occasions team completely blew away expectations on our wedding day! They are organized, efficient and genuinely amazing people to work with! We were hesitant at first to book a day of coordinator thinking we’d be able to handle everything ourselves, but believe us, Taia and team are 100% worth it. The attention to detail and precision the team put into our day was nothing short of extraordinary. Planning an out of state wedding can be difficult and Taia and her team assured us that everything would go perfectly and it did! We had multiple calls before our wedding day and Taia made herself available for any questions or concerns we had leading up to it - and we had a lot! Taia and team went above and beyond what we thought a day of coordinator would normally do, including answering general wedding planning questions, providing ideas and advice on decor, floorplan - you name it! They were there to help with every part of the wedding! We cannot recommend them enough to assist anyone on their wedding day!!Sent on 10/16/2019

Taia is Incredible!
My wife and I opted for a barn wedding for both our ceremony and reception, so the venue owner recommended booking a day planner to accommodate the logistics of this setting. Since we were selecting vendors and organizing the schedule of the day, we needed lots of assistance. We are so, so glad we chose Inspired Occasions! From our initial consultation, Taia was warm, organized, and eager to get to know us. We were blown away by not only her attention to detail (and ability to save us from our occasionally disorganized selves), but also her thoughtfulness. She provided practical and insightful suggestions for making things go as smoothly as possible, while also ensuring that our vision for the day was honored. It was due to this delicate balance Taia was able to maintain that we felt the ceremony and reception truly reflected our personalities. Ironically enough, the first gay wedding we ever attended was our own, so Taia provided ample suggestions and examples from other LGBT weddings she had worked. She helped us craft a ceremony and reception that paid homage to some traditions while also flipping others on their head in a tasteful, refreshing way. She asked the questions we didn't even know to ask, coordinated effectively and seamlessly with all of the parties involved, and even helped us navigate tricky situations of negotiation with vendors. Taia and her team demonstrated tremendous unflappability on the day of the wedding. Despite last-minute changes and extreme heat, Taia and her two wonderful bridal attendants, Kelli and Erin, always had a solution to keep things running without a hitch. We received so many comments from both bridal parties about how grateful they were for Taia's clear yet unobtrusive guidance throughout the day. We cannot sing her praises enough!Sent on 08/20/2019

Highest Recommendation for a Spectacular Wedding
My wife and I give our highest recommendation to Taia and her team at Inspired Occasions. Highly competent and equipped for anything, they enabled us to remain fully "present" on our wedding day. We recommend the Unlimited package. Taia is well-organized, a great listener, and comes up with a multitude of suggestions for designs, vendors, logistics, etc. to save you time and potential frustration. She kept us closely involved in the planning process without ever making us feel overwhelmed. She is personable and professional, and the vendors we talked to in the area all love working with her. Regardless of your style/vibe, let Taia and her team take care of the details so that your focus of the day is each other.Sent on 07/27/2019
Inspired Occasions's reply:Thank you so much Mike & Emily for your kind words. I loved every minute of working with you and your families. I'm so proud of what we all created together. You guys had a vision and seeing it come to life for you guys was just magical! Wishing you a long life of days as happy as that one. Thanks again for trusting me and my team to be a part of your beginning.
Amanda · Married on 05/24/2019
My husband and I could not have pulled our wedding off without the help of Inspired Occasions. From day one, Taia, was available to answer any of my questions. I would shoot her an email and she would get back to me ASAP. Taia even reached out to our caterer for me when we were having some issues. I didn't have to a bridezilla, instead I just asked for her help. Sarah, Melissa, and Lindsay were all amazing the day of. I never wanted to higher a wedding planner to save money, but I realized we couldn't do it alone and I was so right! A few things went a bit wonky on our wedding day but all the girls made everything run smoothly for us. I am eternally grateful and would recommend them to any couple!Sent on 05/28/2019
Inspired Occasions's reply:Thank you so much for sharing your positive experience Amanda. I am so happy that you had an amazing day and that we were able to make the experience of planning such an important day pleasant. We realize that investing in a coordinator isn't always an easy decision. It means the world to us that you found that investment worthwhile. Thanks for trusting us with such a monumentous occasions in your lives. We wish you and Scott a lifetime of days as happy as this one! Taia, Sarah, Melissa & Lindsey
Kristen · Married on 10/26/2018
Working with Inspired Occasions was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding day. Taia and her team were great from start to finish. I had Erin running back and forth a few times between the house and the hotel and she never complained once!! She took all the pressure and stress off. She was also wonderful during the first look and let me borrow her jacket because it was freezing.Sent on 12/28/2018
Sarah was fantastic!!! From the rehearsal to the wedding day she was on top of everything. She was always so happy and willing to do whatever we needed. She jumped right in and also steamed my dress while we were in the bridal suite. My mom was also blown away by her as well. She was super coordinated and made sure everyone was taken care of.
Even before the wedding Sarah was coordinating with me for the last 2-3 weeks. I was constantly texting her with questions and she always got back right away. She took care of all the confirmations for the limo and photo booth which really saved me a ton of time and my sanity!
Honestly, there wouldn’t be anything we would change. We could not have done it without your team and loved working with everyone!
Inspired Occasions's reply:Thank you so much Kristen for your kind words. Sarah and Erin had a wonderful time with you and your families and bridal party on your wedding day. We're honored that you chose our team to take care of you on one of the most important days of your life and are overjoyed to hear that we helped make the day completely stress free. We wish you years of happiness together! All the best, Taia

Don"t look anymore taia is the perfect person for your weddign planner
From the first day I talked to Taia, I knew she was the one I wanted to help plan the wedding. Hiring Taia and her staff was the best thing that I ever did for our daughter's wedding. She is very knowledgeable and responds back to all of her emails right away. She goes above and beyond what is expected of her. We had a few hiccups a few weeks before the wedding and she was right on it straightening them out. Rehearsal and the day of the wedding was absolutely flawless because of her and her wonderful staff. Yvettte, her assistant, was on top of everything in the bridal suite and made sure everyone was on time including the groom and his wedding party. I did not have to worry about a thing at the wedding because I knew she was there - even to bring me a tissue during the father daughter dance. Thank you Taia and staff for making our daughter's wedding experience so great. Could not have done it without you!!Sent on 10/23/2018
Inspired Occasions's reply:Wow Maureen! I can't thank you enough for these incredible words. From the first day I talked to YOU I knew that you guys would be an absolute pleasure to work with and I was completely right! Your trust in us to take great care of you, your daughter and all of the details of the day means everything to us and I'm so glad that it also meant you had wonderful time on that special day.

A wedding must have!
I got married October 2018 in Saratoga Springs, however I live in CT. I knew I needed to find a wedding planner who lived in the area that could help me. From the very first day I met Taia I knew she had to be our planner. Taia is an extremely organized and efficient planner who is very warm and approachable. I would email Taia every question that came to mind and whether it was big or small she answered it not only quickly but with honesty. I truly valued her opinion and expertise while planning our wedding. We ran into some staff changes at our caterer 2 weeks prior to our wedding and Taia immediately took it into her own hands to meet with our new contact sit down and ensure everything was going to go as planned. I didn't even have to ask her to do this she just did it. I think this is a sign of a truly great planner. When wedding weekend hit I was relieved to know I had Taia helping me. On our wedding day her staff showed up and honestly were my life savers. They came with snacks/drinks, helped keep the hotel room organized, and most importantly kept the groomsman on task! Yvette was my bridal assistant and was just an angel sent to me. She made sure I ate, helped fix my hair, carry my extremely heavy long dress through the park. It started to rain just as we were on our way for our first look and she kept reassuring me it would be fine and it was! Not to mention she was extremely funny and lighthearted which was nice to have on such a big day. Everyone kept telling me I was such a calm bride. It was because I knew no matter what Taia and team would take care of anything I needed. Any small problem that came up during the wedding I never even knew about which allowed me to enjoy every second of our wedding. If you are looking for someone you can really rely on and enjoy working with hire Taia, you will NOT regret it!!Sent on 10/28/2018
Inspired Occasions's reply:Oh my goodness Lauren! I'm literally tearing up reading your kind words. They have left me speechless. I can only say that knowing that my team and I impacted your planning and wedding day experience in such a positive way reminds me of why we love what we do. You were incredible to work with and we were honored to be a part of this special time in your life. I wish you and Nick a lifetime of happiness!
Heather · Married on 10/06/2018
We got the peace of mind package with Inspired Occasions and it was the best decision we ever made. First of all, Taia was incredibly flexible in arranging a custom package that worked for us and our venue (since we already had a fantastic on-site team). We worked with Sarah for our event and she was absolutely incredible. She always responded and for the last month leading up to the wedding, she coordinated communication with everyone with ease. She was on top of everything and honestly, I really didn't have anything to do on the week of the wedding because she did everything! They provide top notch services and on the day of, our bridal attendant (Yvette) saved the day multiple times! She ran back and forth between our rooms to help us all look and feel perfect. When we got to the venue, every detail was perfectly curated by the entire team. We couldn't be happier and we would recommend this team to anyone getting married who wants to have a completely stress free wedding :)Sent on 10/14/2018
Inspired Occasions's reply:Thank you so much Heather for taking the time to share your experience working with Sarah, Yvette and the coordination team for your wedding. We are so glad to hear that their hard work on your wedding day meant that you felt well taken care of and free to enjoy all the events of the day without any worry. We appreciate the trust you put in our team to take great care of you, your bridal party and families. All the best to you and Jesse!
Molly Whitman · Married on 10/06/2018
Two Texans in Western Mass
This review is long overdue -- which Taia and her very patient team have come to expect from me. When I hired Inspired Occasions, I had no idea what kind of help I needed. I just knew we desperately needed help, having booked a venue (the Clark Art Institute) that had only ever hosted one wedding, in a town in Western Massachusetts that I had only ever visited when booking the venue, all while trying to do it from Dallas, Texas. Inspired Occasions did an excellent job wrangling me (Type A lawyer with NO time but strong opinions about what I do and do not like) and my now-wife (indecisive free spirit who wanted to make me happy but had little interest in the wedding planning process). Taia and her team, along with Styled by Melissa Brown, helped us pick vendors who helped create the elegant vision we had in mind and added several unexpected touches that really added value. They made my wife a believer in wedding planning, especially when dealing with the inevitable chaos that ensued on the wedding day, including a mid-ceremony downpour and a broken wedding dress strap (thanks for having that emergency kit!!). We are so grateful to have found Inspired Occasions. Thank you all so much!!!!Sent on 07/21/2019
Diane · Married on 09/15/2018
Inspired Occasions comes highly recommended in my book. This team of professionals were hired for our backyard wedding event in September. Being the mother of the groom the pressure was taken off me by Sarah and i was able to enjoy our beautiful day. This team is very organized and pleasant to work with. Thank you so muchSent on 10/04/2018
Inspired Occasions's reply:Thank you Diane for taking the time to say such kind things about Sarah and her Inspired Occasions coordination team. They had a great time getting to know all of you and coordinating such a dynamic and unique wedding on your beautiful property. All the best to Brandon and Amanda and the entire family!

Love Taia and Sarah!!
Taia, Sarah and team were lovely to work with for my wedding. We ended up going with the "day of" package -- which was flawless! Sarah was friendly, professional and so calming to work with. I completely trusted her to take care of any and last minute changes, which she did with grace. In retrospect, I wish I had partnered with them more because they made my day super special and stress-free!Sent on 12/25/2018
Inspired Occasions's reply:Thank you so much Ankur and Prashant for taking the time to share your experience working with Sarah and the Inspired Occasions team. Hearing that our assistance made such a positive impact on such an important day makes what we do so worthwhile. We know you had a choice of coordinators and we truly appreciate the trust you put in our team to take care of you. Best wishes for many more days as wonderful as that one! Taia, Sarah & Team
Christi · Married on 06/01/2018
Our daughters June 1, 2018 wedding was held at a rather unconventional venue where a wedding had never been held, and we were vey worried about how to pull it off. We hired Taia and Inspired Occasions to help us with our wedding vision. Taia was fabulous with her ideas and hands on help the day of the wedding. She even ran out to rent extra table cloths on her own credit card because the venue did not have them. Tara was very responsive to emails and phone calls and took very good care of everything we needed. I would highly recommend Taia and her team!Sent on 06/12/2018
Inspired Occasions's reply:Thank you so much for your kind words Christi. It was an absolute blast working with you, Jennifer, Sean and the entire family and bridal party. You guys planned an event that was uniquely you! It was an honor and pleasure to help you bring your vision to life and watch you enjoy the fabulous party you planned. Best wishes to you all! Taia
Chezenne · Married on 09/02/2017
Taia and her team were the most professional and responsive team that took all the stress out of wedding planning there ever could be! I planned a wedding from VA in NY and she made everything so simple. I purchased the day of package but she also allowed me to add on services such as reviewing contracts and reading the fine print for me, contacted vendors for me who I hadn't heard from, negotiated prices and helped create a custom menu that fit our budget! That barely even scrapes the top of what she did for us. The big day was stress free and flawless (at least if there was a problem I sure didn't know about it) . The personal touches her team added were perfect and she kept me on point the whole process "hey Che did you get your... Did you hear from?.. " and I am the kind of person that needs that kind of reminding! I would recommend her over and over again. Even when I was at the point of frustration with my own family or vendors she was there to tell me everything was fine and we had this! If I could pay to have her at all of my friends weddings I would.
Thank you Taia for everything the day was AMAZING!Sent on 12/29/2017
Inspired Occasions's reply:Wow Che! You just made my day. You and Shaun were so awesome to work with and I'm so happy to know that my team and I helped make your wedding planning experience a great one. That's exactly how it should be! I wish you guys the best as your start your life together as newlyweds. :) Taia
Wenbo · Married on 08/12/2017
I have just had a wonderful wedding in Albany on Aug 12 with the help of Taia and her team. They really saved my life. As a Chinese student in Albany, I have no relatives and only a few friends here. We started preparing the wedding 3 months prior to the day. What's worse, my fiancee could not come to the U.S. until one week before the wedding because of her new F1 visa identity. Before meeting Taia, I need to prepare everything from scratch almost all by myself in just 3 months. It was truly crazy... Thank Lord for letting us meet Taia. I gave her a call, and we had a meeting very soon. Then, I chose the essential package. Surprisingly, everything became much easier with her help. Taia is really helpful. According to my observation, she has done every word in the contract and even beyond. For example, she has reminded me of the difference in fee caused by different payment options in one of the vendor's contract. Another example is that she helped us keep track of the latest budget update, which should done by ourselves. Taia is really professional. Every time when we met, it was she that always waited for me, which made me feel a little sorry for her... When we tasted the reception dishes, Taia refused to taste with us despite after my several invitations. Taia is really creative and knowledgable. It is amazing that what she want are just a few words about our pictures in mind, then she will gave us a perfect design within our budget. For example, we told Taia that we wanted our reception to be held in a place with elements such as big windows, sunshine, forests, etc. Then, she led us to Cornerstone at Empire Plaza, which completely met our preferences. Taia and her team are really experienced. They made everything pretty smooth on our big day. I guess that few would have such a distressing occassion as I had. Taia and her team have proved their ability in saving my wife and me. Then, why not let them help you create another wonderful wedding?Sent on 08/26/2017
Kirsten · Married on 07/15/2017
I really can't imagine doing my wedding without Taia and her team! We did the "Day of Coordination" package and thankfully it includes unlimited emails and calls with Taia. She had such great advice for us - including how to deal with family drama regarding invitations, how to switch photographers when our first one underwhelmed us with our engagement photos, and how to time everything from the rehearsal dinner to clean up at the reception! I can't tell you how many nights I emailed her freaking out about something seemingly small and she completely understand and put me at ease. I like to be in control of everything, I did a lot of the planning & booking myself, but I knew I wouldn't be able to be everywhere (or really anywhere) the day of the wedding. It was great having someone who knows the business and etiquette of weddings on our team, and it really helped knowing that we had not only a day of coordinator, but also a bridal attendant and another assistant to help with set up at the church, reception, and clean up, and also any bumps along the way. The IO team helped alleviate a lot of the anxiety I felt leading up to the wedding. Julie was our day-of coordinator and she did everything from help get my groom to our first look to packing up gifts, checking us into the hotel, and pinning my dress after it got stepped on. Taia's whole team was just amazing and I would highly recommend them - for "peace of mind" and help along the way. I felt so much more confident thanks to Taia and her team! I could not recommend them enough!Sent on 07/24/2017
Inspired Occasions's reply:Thank you so much for your kind words and taking the time to share your Inspired Occasions experience with others Kirsten. I know that you had a lot of anxiety about the planning process and how the wedding day would ultimately go. Knowing that my and my team's efforts to alleviate all of your concerns and to support you through the process and on the actual wedding day helped you to have a wonderful wedding day is so heartwarming. This is why we do what we do. We wish you and Chris a long and happy life together and many more days as special as your wedding day!

Jennifer · Married on 10/22/2016
Taia is great, and incredibly organized. She helped make our vision come to reality, and was invested in our dream as if it was her own. She found ways to make sure everything we wanted fit in the budget and gave us helpful and honest feedback when she thought some vendors were too expensive or anything was not worth the price or hassle. I was long distance with my fiance and we lived in different states that my parents so we were creative with skype /and phone call meetings. She really took a lot of stress off our plates and i would recommend Taia and her team 100%. We worked together for 14 months and Taia helped us work systematically through the wedding planning process. She listed to our desires and helped us vet photographers and other vendors so that we only interviewed vendors that were top notch. She also helped us draft contracts for other vendors like hair dressers and make up artists that had less formal business plans.Sent on 07/04/2016
Jamie · Married on 09/02/2016
Planning your own wedding can be challenging, so do yourself a favor & hire Taia and her team! Leave the worry, problem solving & last minute details to them! Every girl dreams of her fairy tale wedding and feeling like a real princess for a day. Taia & her team made that dream come true for me! I am an anxious person and like to know everything that's going on, but on my wedding day I left my worries at home and was pampered and felt at ease. I hired Inspired Occasions for Day of Coordination services, but Taia helped me throughout the whole year leading up to my big day. She recommended vendors within my budget, answered many emails, texts and phone calls, created a timeline, ceremony rundown sheet, helped with my seating chart, helped with my design plan, finalized vendor arrival times, and so much more! Taia ran our rehearsal and took the time to meet all bridal party and family members. She made sure they all knew they could contact her with any questions, leaving me, the bride, stress free! Her assistant Lauren arrived early to my hotel room as we were all getting ready with her emergency kit and our lunch! She helped steam dresses, pour drinks, take pictures and run some last minute things to our reception space. She also made sure the groom and groomsmen were taken care. Lauren stuck with me all day, was always in sight and ready to help with whatever I needed. She dried my tears, carried my train, made me picture perfect for my first look and helped bustle my dress. Taia made sure to check in with me throughout the day as well. Taia and two other assistants setup all of my decorations for the reception, cocktail hour and the ceremony, they also packed them all up at the end of the day! Taia greeted all my vendors and dealt with any last minute issues, like my whiskey barrel that fell apart! She made it work! Taia also stayed until the very end of the evening to make sure EVERYTHING was all set! My wedding day was perfect & I owe it all to Taia & her team!Sent on 09/26/2016
Inspired Occasions's reply:I am so touched by your kind words Jamie. It was such an honor to be a part of your wedding day. From the weather and location, to the perfectly planned decor to that adorable duck "couple" who showed up for your ceremony at just the right time, your day was beyond memorable. Lauren, Brittani, Erin and I had a great time getting to know your families and bridal parties and had a blast bringing your vision for the perfect wedding day to life. Thanks again for putting your trust in our team and sharing that special day with Inspired Occasions. Best wishes to both you and Jameson! Taia

I was a bridesmaid for my best friends wedding in early September. Taia and her team were on top of everything all we had to do was enjoy the day! We had some logistic things come up and the Inspired Occasions teams were ready to assist. We had some challenges with the venue and Taia was able to connect us to the people within moments to start resolving the concerns we had.Sent on 09/26/2016
Above all, I got to do what I wanted and be there for my friend rather than having to worry about all the details were on track! I would highly recommend Inspired Occasions to make that day just that much more special.

It is always our goal that the entire bridal party and family have the opportunity to enjoy every special moment of a wedding day without the stress and hassle of the details. It makes my day to know that our efforts paid off and you felt well cared for on wedding day. Best, Taia

Kimberly · Married on 07/09/2016
Taia and her team at Inspired Occasions were AWESOME! We booked her for the "Day of Coordination" but we got so much more than that! We live about two hours away from where we were planning our wedding. I am someone who likes everything a certain way, and I realized that I would not be able to do it all by myself. I remember when I first talked to Taia over the phone, I mentioned that on my wedding day I wanted to be drinking mimosas with my bridesmaids and that I did not want to be worrying about anything else. Let me tell you, Taia helped me accomplish this goal!Sent on 07/12/2016
Taia was one of the last vendors we booked as we weren't sure about our budget and it seemed like a little more than we wanted to spend. Let me tell you, I AM SO HAPPY that we booked her and I have to say this service was worth every penny, and even more!! Taia met with us about a month before the wedding to hear our vision for the day. She took copious notes and had a binder with all our vendor information ready to go. When we met with her, it felt like we had been working with her for months! What I also loved was that Taia was present for our rehearsal. To me this was such an added bonus! She ran the rehearsal and told everyone where they had to be and how they should walk down the aisle. I don't know how we would have done it without her!
On our wedding day, Taia and her three assistants were there to help us in any way that we needed. Lauren stayed with me and my bridesmaids all day. She had an emergency kit which had anything extra you could ever think of. Lauren even ran out to Dunkin Donuts and Panera to make sure that we had eaten that day. Danielle was so sweet and great about communicating between the men and my bridesmaids to make sure everyone was running on time! I never felt nervous or anxious at all on our wedding day and I know it was because of Taia and her team! Thank you so much for all your help! You and your team are the absolute best!
Inspired Occasions's reply:Your kind words have me over the moon Kim! You and Chris were so easy and fun to work with. You planned such an amazing event that was so true to who the two of you are that I felt like I've known you guys forever.

When looking in the Albany area there is no other choice. Bottom line. We we're unfamiliar with vendors in the area and Taia didn't steer us wrong once. Our wedding day was flawless, Taia even personally drove some of my family back to their hotels that missed our shuttle. Her attention to detail was superb and she was always willing to go the extra mile. Thank you Taia!Sent on 09/29/2016
Megan · Married on 06/04/2016
I used Taia and her team for "Day Of Wedding Coordinator" services, even though I didn't use her for the entire wedding planning process she was WONDERFUL! I was planning my Saratoga Springs wedding from Maryland and she was so helpful suggesting vendors and answering countless email's I had sent throughout the year leading up to the wedding. She was always quick to respond to emails or calls and was so easy to work with. The week of the wedding we had a final meeting where we went over all the details, she had all of my information organized in her notes and there wasn't anything she forgot! She met with me and our caterer at the venue for the final walk through and took all of my decorations so I didn't have to worry about anything! The day of the wedding one of her assistants, Julie came to my moms house while the entire bridal party were getting ready and was there for anything we needed! She even picked up and dropped off food to the guys at another location for us! She also had a steamer on hand and touched up the bridesmaid dresses. She made sure we were all leaving on time for photos and that we got to the venue in time for the ceremony. During the wedding Taia and her team had the venue beautifully set up with all my many decorations just like I wanted them! My wedding day was pretty perfect and I know I couldn't of done it without the help of a GREAT coordinator! oh, she even checked me and my husband into the hotel and took our luggage there for us! When we got there later that night there were candles and rose petals set up everywhere, such a sweet gesture! I would recommend Inspired Occasions to anyone who wants to have a seamless event!Sent on 06/28/2016
Sarah · Married on 05/14/2016
If you're wavering on whether or not to hire a wedding coordinator, I'm here to tell you it's the first thing for which you should budget. I met with several local planners and hiring Taia at Inspired Occasions was a no-brainer. Taia made a custom package for us - so if you need something between the day-of and full coordination packages, she'll tailor something to meet your needs. Our venue was pretty unique and had some limitations, so without Taia, the timeline and overall vision would have been nearly impossible to pull together on our own.Sent on 08/08/2016
Taia's service goes above and beyond event coordination. From keeping me sane as I was ugly-crying about logistics & family drama to sewing my corset into my wedding dress WAAAY better than the seamstress did, Taia ended up doing things I had no idea I needed but couldn't have done without.
Still not sold? Imagine you have a team of people who will set up all your stuff exactly how you want it, take it down at the end of the night, make sure it all gets back to you, communicate with your vendors, and troubleshoot any issues that arise during your wedding (because there's ALWAYS something), so you two can enjoy each other & party with your guests. This can easily be a reality! Use Inspired Occasions and you won't be disappointed.
Inspired Occasions's reply:Sarah, my team and I loved every minute of working with you. I remember how stressed out you were the first time we met so it was such a treat to be able to help relieve some of that stress and to be with you as your vision of the perfect wedding day unfolded. Best wishes to you and Mike!
