Tara, There are not enough words in the englist language to express how grateful I am that you were my wedding planner. God has given you such a gift and I feel so lucky that we found you! From your big save helping us find THE venue, to numerous long phone chats, to tastings, florist appointments, hundreds of emails, calming my mom when she started to panic, making me feel like a princess when I sent you my wedding dress (that no one else had seen)–all of this made planning a joy! You guided me every step of the way and made me feel like I was the only bride you were helping. AMAZING. With all of the above being said, that doesn’t even begin to touch all you did during the wedding weekend. You put together all the s’mores favors, took our brunch food to the salon when we were running late, decorated an adorable rehearsal dinner set up, last minute got us a rehearsal venue because of the rain (and everyone got there!), set up EVERYTHING the day of, rehearsed with the dancers and musicians, got me wine during pictures :), guided us through the night, and even got one cake for the road!! How you did ALL of that, I will never know. You gave me the greatest gift of all-which was the ability to sit back and enjoy my wedding day. Never once did I have to worry or fret. Even when it was raining before the ceremony I felt a sense of calmness and contentment. Not only did the sky open up with sunshine, but I got to live out a dream I’ve had since I was a little girl. It was a perfect wedding day. You will always be one of my most treasured blessings and definitely someone I call friend. Sending you and your family lots of love and gratitude, this day and always.
Lots of love,
Jenna and Matthew/Champion Hills Country Club

 

Tara, Thank you so much for coordinating every detail of our wedding, keeping me calm, solving every problem that popped up, and making our wedding day so wonderful…all with good humor and a smile. There is no way we could have pulled it off without you! You are so talented, organized, perpetually optimistic, and grounded. We consider ourselves so fortunate to have been able to work with you in creating our wedding. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
With love,
Emily Anne and Jeff/Biltmore Estate

 

Tara, I don’t even have the words to explain how much impact you had on our wedding day. I was at such ease knowing you had everything under control. I honestly did not panic one time (even with the rain) because you had all of my trust in that you were doing everything possible to make the day as special as it could be. You were the best investment we could have made. Thank you for everything!

Megan Corn/Grove Park Inn

 

Thank you for all of your help planning our beautiful wedding. We couldn’t have done it without you!
Love,

Tara! Wow, thank you so much for literally making our wedding possible that day. Your servant’s heart is incredible and we are so thankful for you! There were so many little things we didn’t even have to think or worry about that day. Love you!

Tara,
Great Job pulling all of the wedding events together! Thank you for all of your help.

Thanks,

Hi Tara,

Now that the dust has settled a little bit – I just wanted to touch base and say quickly how absolutely FABULOUS you were over our wedding weekend. Just when I thought you couldn’t be any more wonderful – you just went ALL out. From doing all of the smores favor bags yourself (how did you have time?!) to delivering our brunch food to the salon, setting up the rehearsal dinner (which was just adorable!!), running our rainy rehearsal at a new location…and that’s before we even get to the wedding day!! The day of the wedding was just PERFECT!!! Not once did I have to stress/worry/have any cares in the world. I know you worked tirelessly all day so that I didn’t have to — and for that I am FOREVER grateful!! It was so nice to sit back and enjoy the day that I had looked forward to since I was a little girl. And from start to finish it was MORE than I could have ever dreamed of. The vendors, the venue, the staff, the decorations, flowers, food…it was all exquisite. I have YOU to thank for that. I was surrounded by the best of the best and I will never be able to thank you enough for making our day all that it was.

Sending something small to you in the mail – so look out for it. But please give yourself a huge pat on the back for a job more than well done. And thank you for CARING about us and going above and beyond to make sure we had the most special day. You are more than a wedding planner…I consider you a friend and confidant after this experience. A year in the making – I treasure the time of planning we had together and hope to recommend you to others for years to come!!

Sending love to you and your family,

Jenna Jackson/Champion Hills Country Club

 

Dear Tara,
Words cannot express the gratitude I feel for the help you gave me to put together our vow renewal ceremony. I know I would not have been able to keep it a secret from Maria without you! Again thank you so much. It truly was a very special day and Maria and I were thankful you were a part of it.

Gus Bazan/Hotel Domestique

 

Tara,
Thank you so much for everything you did to make our wedding day more perfect than we ever could have imagined.  We were truly blown away by how beautiful everything looked, smoothly everything went, and how much fun we and all of our guests had!  We also know that there were 1000 details that went into our special day that we never had to worry about.  And we thank you for that!  We feel so blessed to ahve found you!  Thank you, again.

Aven & Wes/Claxton Farm

 

Dearest Tara,
I don’t even know how to begin to thank you. You have truly been a blessing in my life this past year. I don’t know how I would have made it through without you. Not only are you a superb and second to none wedding planner, you are also someone of high character and that shows in both your work and spirit. You have been kind, patient and caring, and even though we are not, it feels as if we are your only wedding always. I’m so thankful my mom found you. A part of me is sad, I won’t get to see you regularly anymore, but I’m also so excited for the festivities! Let them begin!

All my love,
Caitlin (bride)/Cliffs of Glassy Ceremony/Cliffs of Valley Reception

Tara,
You are one of the sweetest, kindest, most talented and prettiest ladies I know. You are incredible at what you do. You have a way of making all of us feel like we are your only client! We have been so blessed to have you this past year! We think you are the greatest and we love you dearly. We hope you will be a part of our lives forever. You are precious to all of us. We could not have done any of this without you!

Much love,
Maria (mom-of-bride)/Cliffs of Glassy Ceremony/Cliffs of Valley Reception

Tara,
Not much more I can add that the girls haven’t already said. But these two women are my life and I will always be grateful to you for the patience, courtesy, professionalism, and affection you have shown them throughout this whole process. You are an exceptional wedding planner, but much more importantly, a truly remarkable person.

Gus (father-of-bride)/Cliffs of Glassy Ceremony/Cliffs of Valley Reception

 

Can’t say thank you enough for getting me to this day.  You are such a wonderful person and I really do appreciate everything you have done for me.  Putting my complete trust in someone was so hard but I know it’s going to be beautiful.  Not only are you a great wedding planner, but a great person.  I can honestly say I have gained a new friend.

Thanks,
April & Trevor/Biltmore Estate

 

Tara,
Thank you again for making our day SO wonderful! Everyone has just raved about how beautiful everything was and how much fun they had – I give you all the credit!

Stephanie/Rugby Grange

 

Dear Tara,
Thank you for everything you did to make wedding planning fun and stress-free. You are masterful-the day was perfect! Because we knew we could trust all the details to you, we were able to be more present and enjoy the whole experience. It was more magical than I ever imagined it could be. I’m already going through Tara withdrawal. I can’t imagine a person more lovely and supportive. I do hope we will stay in touch! We can’t thank you enough for everything! You’re the best!

Love,
Dina and Eric/Deerpark at Biltmore Estate

 

Hey Tara,
I can’t believe it has already been two weeks since our wedding day! I just wanted to say thank you so much for everything! We really couldn’t have done it without you! Thank you for helping my dream wedding come to life!

Lindsey/Cliffs Glassy

 

Tara,
Thank you so much for putting together the most beautiful wedding that I have ever attended!  It was a magical night and everything was so special and lovely.  Your attention to detail and organizational skills are second to none.  I was able to just relax and enjoy being Mother of the Bride without having to worry about anything.  You really made this wedding a precious lifetime memory for me and my family and friends.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart for a wonderful day!

Sincerely,

Muriel (mom-of-bride)/Grove Park Inn Country Club

 

Dear Tara,
Words can’t adequately express how thankful we are to have had you by our sides throughout the entire wedding process.  From start to finish you have been an absolute dream to work with, and we truly would have been lost without you.  We were both able to enjoy our wedding day (and the days leading up to it) and that is 100% credited to you.  From day one, we had the utmost confidence that you would do a wonderful job; you did all of that and MORE.  You are everything a planner should be, but you somehow manage to also be a kind, extremely dependable, and fun person on top of it all.  There are a lot of reasons we are sad that our wedding is over, but one of those is that we won’t get to chat with you as frequently.  We are so happy that we at least have Amelia’s wedding to look forward to seeing you again. Our bridesmaid, Erin, said it best, “Y’all had the best wedding crew and it made the day so relaxed and fun.” Tara, you were the backbone, leader, and most important part of that awesome ‘crew’, and we can’t thank you enough.  From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.  We appreciate you.  Much love and can’t wait to see you (next fall at the latest!)!

Melisa and Jackson Turbyfill/Biltmore Estate

 

Dear Tara,
You are wonderful!  Thank you for going above and beyond to help us through the wedding planning process!  Your guidance, professionalism, attention to detail, and overall wonderful demeanor make your services priceless.  And you can quote us on that!  Thank you for being there every step of the way!  It means more than you’ll ever know.

Clary and Chase Pickering/Biltmore Estate

 

Tara,
I wanted to write and formally thank you for an excellent job on our wedding! Everything was perfect, and anything that may have gone off plan, we were kept blissfully unaware thanks to your planning and organization. Friends and family are still complimenting us on how magical our wedding was, with most saying that it was the best and most fun wedding that they have ever been to! Hope to see you soon.

Our best,
Ryan and Rebecca Cecil/Biltmore Estate

 

Dear Tara,
There aren’t enough words to express what an awesome and wonderful job you did in planning Rebecca’s wedding. It was like I was living in a fairy tale all weekend! I like the way you took charge of each event and got everyone where they needed to be. I thought everything was PERFECT. All of my family is still talking about it. Thanks for helping to make ‘my baby’s’ wedding dreams come true. 🙂

Deborah (mom-of-bride)/Biltmore Estate

 

Tara!
We made it. We are so incredibly excited today is here. And we are so grateful that we met you and to have worked with you. Honestly, you have made everything easy, fun, simple, and simply enjoyable. We are so appreciative. Your hard work, vision and creativity are never ending. And you are such a joyous, energetic, and positive person, not to mention your beautiful family! Thank you, thank you!

Much love,
Laura & Eric/Biltmore Estate

 

Dear Tara,
Thank you so much for making this day for us so seamless and special! We Truly couldn’t have gotten through all this planning (and kept our sanity) without you.

Jay & Amy/NC Aboretum & On Broadway

 

Dear Tara,
I knew from day one that working with you would be a pleasure because not only was it clear that you have great style and impeccable taste, but you seemed like the type of person I’d want to be friends with! Planning our wedding has been a fun and enjoyable process thanks to you-I cannot imagine doing it without you. Thank you for all of your patience, creativity, humor, and dedication to seeing through a gorgeous wedding. You are truly talented and we were blessed to find you. 🙂

With love,

Tara,
We can’t thank you enough for working with us to make our wedding perfect. We loved every minute! It was such a relief to be able to let it all happen and know you had everything covered. You made it all so easy and we appreciate it!

Leslie & Andy/The Venue

 

Dear Tara,
My goodness this past year has FLOWN by!  Even so, our wonderful wedding (mainly thanks to you) is still fresh in our minds.  I want you to konw how much we APPRECIATE YOU and you knack for making things go smoothly (and most importantly) WONDERFULLY.  You still amaze me, and I wish I was able to multitask half as well as you do.  When all is said and done I can’t think of a single thing that I would change about our special weekend.  I know our families and guests felt the same.  Some are even still talking about it.  I know you have moved on to help many other LUCKY brides, but THANK YOU so very much for handling my over worried (unnecessarily of course) self and for making one of the most special days in our lives one we will never forget.  I knew we were in good hands from the start, but it was so nice to hear how happy every single vendor was when they discovered they’d be working with you.  YOU ARE AWESOME, and I hope you and your sweet little ones are all doing well.  We wish you the very best!  You deserve it, and maybe we’ll see you around Asheville!

Love, Mary Andrews and Griffin/Deerpark on Biltmore Estate

 

Hi Tara,
We wanted to officially thank you for all of your hard work and planning to make our wedding so perfect. It was honestly the best weekend of our lives and we could not have pulled it off without you. Each vendor you helped us select delivered exactly what we wanted and we couldn’t be more grateful for your guidance! We are truly so sad that its over and wish we could do it all over again.

Best,
Amanda & Peter/Cliffs Communities-Glassy Chapel & Vineyards Lake House


Dear Tara,
We couldn’t have had such an incredible weekend where everything went perfectly and smoothly without your amazing self! I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect fit for a wedding planner-you managed to plan everything without too much family drama-which is a miracle! You are genuinely amazing, thoughtful and caring person. Thank you for all that you did for our wedding-it was a day/night we will hold in our hearts for years to come. Thank you for making it so unforgettable, a perfect memory, and for being a part of our special day! We wish you all the best in life!

Love,
Sasha and Sinisa/St. Lawrence Basilica & Biltmore Estate

 

Tara,
We can’t even begin to express how thankful we are to have found you for our special weekend! I’m sure you hear it a lot, but we couldn’t have done it without you! We had a perfect wedding! No snags! How many people can say that? We owe it to you. We couldn’t believe how beautiful everything was! It was a fairytale and we still can’t believe how easy it was! Thank you for going above and beyond to make our dreams come true! We miss you. 🙂 Thank you for our perfect weekend with amazing memories!

xoxo,
Ashley and Trey/Biltmore Estate

 

Hi Tara,
Lenny and I want to thank you and your team from the bottom of our hearts for the wonderful job you did for Samantha and Ben’s wedding last week. After all the prep work I simply cannot believe it is over!  You made the entire process such a smooth and low stress event! From the burst of rain before the ceremony, last minute requests and cringe worthy behavior of some of the guests  i was amazed that you and the staff didn’t even break a sweat! I can’t express enough how beautiful the flowers and decor were. The decorations, lighting and flowers were just stunning and added to the ambiance. The food was excellent and the wait staff was very patient and gracious.  Samantha and Ben were VERY happy and that is what is important to us. Kudos to you and the staff of the Biltmore for a wonderful and simply unforgettable event! It will be forever in our hearts a beautiful memory.
With much admiration and appreciation,

Ellen and Lenny (parents-of-bride)/Biltmore Estate

 

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for an outstanding job this weekend. You were on top of everything and there was not a single problem. You are quiet, efficient, and highly professional and courteous.

Sasha and I agreed that we certainly were fortunate to have gotten the best wedding planner in Asheville!

Roger (father-of-bride)/Biltmore Estate

 

Tara!

Thanks so much for everything.  Your guidance, help, and expertise was invaluable.  We literally couldn’t have done it without you.  David

Tara,

We had such a blast.  It was a total blur but so much fun, beauty, and good times.  I almost want to do it all over again! Thank you for being such a crucial part of such a wonderful event!  Shannon

You ROCK!! And we LOVE you!!! THANKS FOR EVERYTHING!!

Ellen and Brad (Claxton Farm)

 

I am a person who appreciates working with people who are ‘capable and efficient’ at their profession…of which there are few in this world.  When we selected you as our wedding planner and you conveyed in the first meeting that most of your weddings were destination weddings, that made me feel that you knew what you were doing, and it held true.  You were extremely capable in all areas and were always where you needed to be when you needed to be there.  If you desire to use our association as a reference for future potential clients, please feel free to do so.

Dale (father-of-bride)/Diana at The Biltmore Estate

 

Jon and I want to thank you deeply for your efforts to make our wedding day what we dreamed of and more.  You have incredible talent not only as a wedding planner but as a person who truly can make a vision come to life.  We are so appreciative of your hard work over the past year and we had an amazing time!  Please keep in touch!

Love,
Rachel and Jon/Deerpark on The Biltmore Estate

Thank you so much for giving me and John a most beautiful experience. The wedding was everything I envisioned it to be, and more. I still can’t get over it! Everyone there said it was the best wedding they’ve been to and wished it wasn’t over yet, including me!

Love,
Mona/Claxton Farm

 

Tara,

My family and I wanted to take the time to thank-you profusely for everything that you have done! When I first suggested a planner, my parents were a bit skeptical, but they are more than happy that we decided to use your services! Everything was perfect the day of the wedding (despite the weather) and you took all of the stress out of planning and actually allowed us to enjoy the wedding day to its absolute fullest! You were on top of every single detail and made sure everything went along according to plan! It was a beautiful wedding, and our familes and friends are still talking about it! We couldn’t have done it without you! We would recommend you to any bride!

Love,
Marisa, Brandon, and our familes!/Biltmore Estate

 

Tara,
Please accept my entire family’s thanks for the phenomenal job you did in making Elizabeth’s wedding perfect. Your assistance leading up to the wedding and on the big day itself was invaluable. Your attention to detail and professionalism made for a relatively stress free experience. We could always count on you to make sure that every detail was taken care of and your vendor recommendations were fabulous. Your expertise at the rehearsal and at the wedding was greatly appreciated. Everything about the wedding was beyond what we could have hoped. I told everyone that you were the best investment I made during the entire wedding process. If ever you need a recommendation from a happy father please call on me.

Champ (Father-of-the-Bride)/Cliffs Glassy


Hi Tara!

I know you must hear this often, but I still have to say it, “You are the best!”  Because of you, my daughter had her fairytale wedding.  We are still talking about how smoothly everything came off.  It was an incredible weekend!  God has blessed you with a precious personality and the ability to get things done with a very calm and polite demeanor.  The wedding party loved you.  Several commented on how nice you were and that you never got flustered.  I am so thankful that we found you!  Thank you for all you did to make Cameron and Tommy’s wedding everything they wanted it to be!
Love,

Ruthie (Mother-of-the-Bride)/Cliffs Glassy Chapel & Cliffs Valley Clubhouse

 

Dear Tara,

Thank you ever so much for helping us with our wedding.  Everyone knew who you were, and kept saying what a great job you did!  I know we had pretty crazy and specific requests, but it all turned out perfect, and I am so thankful that you were there to de-stress us!  It was nice to be confident that someone was taking care of set-up!  As a planner, I know the benefit of having a coordinator, and you were all that and more!  Thank you for being so patient, kind, sweet and AWESOME!  It was a dream come true.  Thanks for everything!!

Love,

Carrie and Matt/Biltmore Estate


Dear Tara,

What a blessing to work with you planning Emily and John’s wedding!  I knew after about 24 hours that I needed a lot of help to coordinate everything from a distance.  All of your suggestions were perfect-not to mention your encouragement, sense of humor, and attention to detail!  Thank you for listening carefully to Emily’s ‘vision’ and for making the actual day of the wedding entirely stress-free.  In fact, we’d all like to go back and do it again.  All our friends and family had a wonderful time!  All our best to you and your sweet family.

xxoo,

Donna and family (mom-of-bride)/Biltmore Forest Country Club


Dear Tara,

I want to thank you for all your help and guidance throughout Lee’s and my wedding planning process.  When I think back to the wedding day, I am still in awe of how beautifully the vision came together!  This is largely due to you being great at your job-from helping us define the vision, to recommending fabulous vendors, and keeping things running smoothly throughout the wedding weekend.  Having you there to manage the details allowed me to focus on the most important thing-my marriage to Lee and the significance of the day.  Many of our close family and friends said at one point or another, “Your wedding planner is amazing!”  We just had to reply, “Oh, we know!”  Thanks again, Tara.

Best,

Anna/Biltmore Estate


Amazing…that is what you are!!!!!   I, no WE, can NEVER thank you enough for everything that you have done for us.  The entire weekend was a fairy tale for us and that was in large part due to your amazing talent and passion for what you do.  The entire experience was more than either of us could have EVER asked for and we feel SO blessed to have had the opportunity to get to know you and have you as a part of this amazing experience.

I will truly miss seeing and getting to speak with you all of the time. 🙁  Please keep us updated on your life and what you have going on and we will DEFINITELY suggest and recommend you to anyone we know getting married in the area in the future!

Thank you again Tara…it was more than perfect!!!!!

Falon & Clay/Biltmore Estate


Tara,

I can’t begin to thank you enough for the wonderful job you did. You are so professional and competent and fun. We had a blast getting to know you and boy, did you help me. You took all the pressure off of me at the end and I am so very, very grateful.

Thank you again for everything…you are fabulous!!!

Kathy (mother-of-bride)/The Farm at Old Edwards


Tara,

We wanted to thank you for being such an important part of our wedding and for all of your help.  You were absolutely wonderful and always had everything under control.  We could not have asked for more.  Thank you for being a delight to work with and for making our wedding day perfect.  Thank you for all you did, we loved everything!

Bryan and Stacey/Biltmore Estate


Tara,

I don’t even know where to start except to say, “You are amazing!”  Words can barely express how much Noah & I appreciate everything you did for our wedding.  You are truly gifted at what you do.  You were so professional, knowledgeable, and creative.  Also, I still can’t believe how great you are with details!  I was looking at your website again today and read the line that says, “Weddings with Tara…relax and enjoy every moment.”  Because of you, we were able to do just that!  As you know, I was nervous about having a big wedding and about being the center of attention.  You created an environment that was so welcoming that it was impossible not to have a wonderful time.  When I saw my mother the morning of the wedding, she didn’t seem nervous or anxious at all.  She wasn’t running around stressing over the details and neither was I.  You made it so that Noah and I (and our families!) could truly appreciate the day for what it was.  Honestly, when we first began planning our wedding, I didn’t think I wanted or needed any assistance.  Shows what I know!  Your help was invaluable and I will happily be a reference for you for life!

With the greatest appreciation,

Jana & Noah/The Farm


Tara,

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.  Our wedding was more beautiful than we ever dreamed thanks to all of your hard work and attention to detail.  Thanks for helping me relax and assuring me that everything was going to be perfect.

With deepest gratitude,

Amber and Josh/French Huguenot Church, Gibbes Museum/Charleston, SC


Tara,

Let’s face it…I’m a control freak.  Except, that is, when it comes to people I trust.  You are absolutely on that list.  Thank you, from the bottom of my heart for handling all the silly wedding-related details so adeptly, so that I could focus on celebrating God’s faithfulness and Michael’s and my love with dear family and friends.  October 11, 2009 will go down in Higdon-Corbett memory as one of the greatest days of our lives.  Make no mistake-this is in large part due to your tireless effort that day, and the time, energy, effort and LOVE you invested over the preceeding nine months.

With humble thanks,

Jamie/Cliffs Glassy Chapel and Cliffs Valley Clubhouse


Dear Tara,

Pat and I wanted to write and thank you so much for making this weekend’s wedding for Josh and Amber so very special.  We so appreciated your help and the fact that you were there to oversee everything.

The rehearsal dinner was terrific and we so appreciated you being there to oversee things there.  We are getting great reviews from our friends and family.

The reception was incredible.  You made it so special.

Thanks again for such fine work.  I would like to compliment the caterers for the food and service as well.  It was wonderful and we are truly grateful for all of your help.  If you need recommendations in the future, please include our name.

Pat and Sherry (parents-of-groom)/French Huguenot Church & Gibbes Museum in Charleston, SC


Dear Tara,

A simple thank you is so inadequate to tell you of our great appreciation for all you did for the Corbett family over the past months.  But you were completely at your best during the weekend celebration!!  We could not have planned or executed such a wonderful perfect three-day party without you!  Thank you for your understanding, your willingness to work with us long distance, for your fabulous suggestions and mostly for the pleasure of working hand-in-hand with you to create one of our most treasured memories!!  We are blessed to count you a friend.  God bless you…

Steve and Deni (parents-of-bride)/Cliffs Glassy and Valley


Dear Tara, I cannot thank you enough for all of your help, guidance and patience throughout our wedding planning process!  Everything turned out perfectly and just as we had envisioned!  We are still talking about how much fun we had, and we owe so much of that to you.  With you at the reigns, even “control freak” me was able to just relax and enjoy every second.  Thank you so much for everything!

Kelly/Lioncrest at the Biltmore Estate


Thanks Tara for a wonderful wedding. All of the guests said that it was the most beautiful wedding that they had ever attended.  You kept everything flawless and fun.  I couldn’t have done it without you.  You are the best wedding planner ever 🙂

Amy and Jim/Homewood and Coleman Place


Tara,

You are the most amazing wedding planner and we could not be more thankful to have you plan our big day!  You turned my shiny, glittery vision into reality and it could not have been more perfect!  I truly enjoyed all of our meetings and had fun planning with you.  I wish you all the success in the world and I hope you and your family are doing well!  Thank you again for everything–you are awesome!

Janet and Thomas/Rambles LongMeadow Park and The Grand Bohemian Hotel


Tara,

I cannot thank you enough for all of your amazing help, guidance, ‘wedding wisdom’, talent, and encouragement throughout the entire wedding process.  You are the perfect wedding planner!  Although I was a ‘little’ unsure about the wedding to begin with-everything turned out amazing!  Our family has received many, many compliments about how great the day was-and it was many thanks to you!  We (mom, dad, Bryan and I) are grateful we found you!  Hopefully I can convince our friends (…in the near future) to have weddings in Asheville and work with you.  Thank you again.  You, along with the many other great people in Asheville, made our wedding a wonderful day!

Grateful,

Meredith/Homewood


Dearest Tara,

THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING!!!!!  Our wedding day was the most wonderful day of my life, and I know that much of this was because of all your hard work, your great advice, and your invaluable recommendations for the vendors that we used…Thank you for your patience with me during these months and for so willingly working with all of my friends and family members who wanted to participate in the planning process.  As you know, I’ve never been a ‘dream wedding’ kind of girl, but with your help and guidance after Will’s proposal, I was able to come up wiht my ‘dream wedding’ and then enjoyed a day full of the people and things that I love the most.  And so, thakn you with all my heart for everything-especially for your talents and your kindness.  Let’s keep in touch!  You’re AMAZING!

Much love,

Kristi/Biltmore Forest Country Club


Tara,

David and I can’t thank you enough for the great job you did on Natalie’s wedding – I do not know what I would have done with out you!  I so enjoyed working with you and have a feeling our paths will cross many times in the future.  You are a terrific gal and I wish all the best to you.  Believe me any of my friends giving a wedding I will highly recommend you.

Fondly,
Cissy (mother-of-bride)/Homewood, Lexington Courtyard


Tara…everything was perfect. The whole weekend was perfect. We had lots of prayers going up about the weather, and God answered our prayers. I also think that, throughout the whole weekend, a message was sent to all who attended. If your life is not Christ centered, you are missing daily blessings and purpose for fulfillment. Meredith and Bryan have shown everyone who takes priority in their lives…and that their love for each other is rooted in God’s love for them.  We thank you profusely for all that you did to make this a wonderful event and the blessing that it was. It was hard for Mom and Dad to give their “baby” away, but God has given us peace in knowing that she now belongs to someone who definitely loves her as much as we do.

Bryan (father-0f-bride)/Homewood


I had to email you to tell you how thankful Will and I were to have you be a part of our wedding. It was the most wonderful day of our entire lives, and you made sure that every detail was perfect all night long. I especially loved the polka-dotted flip-flop trunk, goodie table at the end of the night, big sparklers, flower balls, gift bags, and everything else that you made possible. It has been over a month since our wedding and neither one of us feel like we have touched back down to reality! You were able to make our wedding a reflection of us, of everything that we loved about each other, and everything that we had ever dreamed of for our special day. It was so much fun, so beautiful, and just absolutely perfect and I attribute most of those things to you. My mom and I will never be able to thank you enough, your presence in our lives this past year and a half has been nothing short of a blessing. I know that you will have many, many more brides, but please know that you hold a special place in our hearts! Thank you again for your friendship, for your amazing talent, and for making October 11, 2008 the most wonderful day of our lives!

Dear Tara…we just wanted to thank you for doing such a wonderful job putting together a seamless, memorable and absolutely lovely wedding weekend.  Matt and I could not have asked for a better experience-we were both able to enjoy our friends and family in celebration rather than be bogged down with coordinating the event.  And I cannot tell you how grateful I am to have had your help and expertise for the months leading up to the event.  It has been a lot of fun working with you and I feel so fortunate to have met you!

You are wonderful! The wedding was a hit and we could not have pulled it off without you. Thank you for everything!

I hardly know where to start to thank you for all your help with our wedding. Everything went so smoothly, it couldn’t have been a more perfect night largely because of your hard work! …It was also such a pleasure to work with you-you were always quick to respond to my inquiries… Thank you again, Tara. You truly made our wedding the most special day of our lives.

I just wanted to thank you again for your help with Jess and Jake’s wedding. You were wonderful to work with. You were very professional, relaxed and had everything under control. It all came together perfectly! We could not have asked for anything more. The weather, the ceremony, the pavilion reception, the buses and limo showing up on time, the reception at Valley….. it was flawless. We have had wonderful comments from our friends and family and Jess and Jake had a great time!

A most special thank you from Katie and Jeremy for making both the rehearsal dinner and wedding be exactly everything they wanted. As they reflected with me the next day, you were magnificent and we are all so appreciative to your quick, anything can be done response to everything, as well as your lovely manner as you made sure every minute was working. Thank you so so much. It certainly left me able to just enjoy the events too.

Dearest Tara,

A million trillion thanks for helping make my fabulous New Year’s Eve wedding a reality!  Through every step of the way your cool composure and obvious rapport with some extremely talented vendors made something as manic as wedding preparations feel like a breeze.  Many, many, many thanks!

I cannot begin to adequately thank you for a weekend which was beyond expectations. I attribute the success to your efforts…West had a grand time as did everyone else. We know it would not have unfolded so successfully without you. Of course, we had a bit of divine intervention giving us a picture perfect day. I am grateful for your efforts and prayers.

I can’t begin to thank you for helping to make the day so perfect. I was absolutely BLOWN AWAY by the crest center. When I walked in, I had to just stop, take it all in and take a deep breath. It was more than what I dreamed and fit my personality 100%. Everyone was saying that it was probably one of the nicest weddings they had been to partly b/c of the venue and the decorating. I honestly don’t think that they were just saying that. People loved the small details like the apples and the names on the tables. I could go on and on and on…Again, thank you for everything b/c there is no way I could have made the wedding half as nice as it was without you. The details and the vendors worked so well for my personality. You are in the right business and if you ever need a recommendation, please send then my way!

We can’t put into words how appreciative we are for all you have done for us. When we describe our wedding day to people, we tell them to imagine the ‘perfect’ day then multiply it by 10! We truly felt charmed… You get five stars in our book. Thanks for everything.

Susan and Jay/Homewood


I’m not sure we have touched ground yet….we’re still celebrating in our hearts and reliving every moment! Thank you again for each and everything you did for us on Collins and Jared’s special day! It felt so good to have you there to guide, direct, and encourage us all. I can still see your beautiful, calm, reassuring smile. I never gave the rehearsal or ceremony a second thought, because I new we were in good hands with you in charge. We were able to enjoy every moment as participants and you took care of the rest. Thanks again for your expertise, knowledge, and direction, but most of all for you Christ centered love that always came shinning through.

I cannot thank you enough for all that you did to ensure our picture perfect wedding. You were on top of everything and because of that Chelsea had the wedding of her dreams! You are amazing!
