Thank you BLUSH!Reviewed on 9/28/2015 Shabray S
I am so elated that I chose Blush to coordinate our wedding!!! Tami and her team did an AMAZING job and gave me the wedding that I always dreamed of having, well beyond what I could have ever imagined!! Our wedding was absolutely beautiful ….the Church, the venue, the flowers, the escort table, the sweetheart table, the family styled seating and guest tables etc.…ALL of the elements of our wedding were just absolutely stunning thanks to Blush!!!! Our relationship with Blush began a year before our wedding. At the initial meeting with Blush, I could tell that Tami takes great pride in her work, it’s not just a hobby to her but instead something that she is in love with and passionate about and takes very seriously. In fact, I was so impressed with her reviews, her website, her past work, and the feedback she gave surrounding our own vision for our wedding, that I never interviewed anyone else after meeting with her and we were very comfortable with our decision to go with her from the beginning. In preparation for the wedding and meeting with tons of vendors, all of the vendors we contacted or visited knew of her and gave her their highest regard. When I went to book my venue, they asked me who my coordinator was and when I told them, they physically lit up with excitement due to the long standing relationship she had already developed with them…..they too gave her great praises and assured me that I was in good hands and boy were they right! Tami was there every step of the way. If I had questions, she was there to provide answers and clarifications. If I had anxiety about certain elements of the wedding, she was there to give me advice and calm me. She was able to refer great vendors to us including a wonderful wonderful florist who went above and beyond our expectations!!! I sincerely believe this was due to the relationship the florist had with Blush. Our family and friends are still talking about how amazing our wedding was and that it was the best wedding they ever attended. That is such a wonderful feeling and Blush made that happen for me and my Husband. Words could never express the gratitude we have. If you are looking for a no nonsense coordinator who knows what she is doing, who has a team that will carry out your wedding day flawlessly, who can execute your vision and even help you create a vision beyond your expectations, then BLUSH is who you should hire to coordinate your special day!!! This is the one day that you want to be perfect and you cannot afford to hire someone who is just in it for the money. You want someone who actually cares, who will take pride in your day, who has a passion for this and who recognizes and understands that this day is one of the most important days of your life. Blush did that for us and we are extremely pleased with the choice that we made…..Thank you so much Blush!!! We will recommend you forever and ever!!!!
PERFECTReviewed on 6/27/2012 Tracy S
From the beginning Tami was exactly what I was looking for in a coordinator. She was flexible, her price was right and she knew exactly what i was trying to achieve. What a joy it was to see over time that she was exceeding my expectations. She took control when needed, she let me do my thing when I wanted to and she was reassuring and kind, yet strong the whole way through. My wedding was beyond perfect and a huge part of it was due to Tami and her team's hard work. I couldn't have asked for a better coordinator.
Best Wedding Planner Ever!!Reviewed on 10/20/2011 Valencia M
After interviewing several wedding planners, I met the one and only and best wedding coordinator ever Tami Smallwood. My initial conversation with her was so positive I wanted to meet her immediately. She helped us bring the vision of our wedding to a reality. My guests are still raving about her creative design for decor. Her team at Blush Wedding & Event Planning provided us with OUTSTANDING service that exceeded any and all of our expectations. Her team was detailed, professional, friendly and I could go on and on about how much they provided us with stellar service that made our wedding day perfect. I know there are many choices out there but if you are reading this review please don't look in further let her make your day just as perfect as she made ours. Valencia & John September 25, 2011.
I hired Tami as a partial wedding planner for my October 2017 wedding. She was there from beginning to end providing invaluable information every step of the way. I know there are tons of information on the internet about wedding planning, but trust me there will be many times throughout the process when you will need guidance tailored to your situation. Tami was that! She’s a small woman lol, but very powerful haha. She’s a great source of information when working with the many different vendors you’ll need and she always has your best interest. There were so many things that I would have missed if I didn’t have her help along the way. && she came through on the day of my wedding! If any issues emerged, I had no idea because she made sure everything went as planned. Whether it was bringing my husband and I food while we were taking pictures or spraying me with perfume before I walked out the door. Trust me when I say that you NEED Tami on your team!
Tami and her staff were AMAZING!!! I was a nervous bride but Tami made me feel at ease. She is very attentive to detail, knowledgeable about the business, most importantly, she cares for her brides. She made my day all that and more. I would definitely recommend her for your wedding!
Love Tami and the Blush team!!! She was always on point and professional! She made my wedding beautiful as she stated from our initial meeting. I wish I had her from the beginning of my planning, as I would have let her run the entire show! Tami & team blush are MAGNIFICENT!
Can't say enough about Tami and her AWESOME team! I wasn't sure if I would find the right planner who could properly pull off my Winter in Narnia vision. One chat with Tami and those concerns melted away. Tami and her team ran our wedding like a well oiled, elegant, machine. As soon as I saw her with that "Rhythm Nation" head set, I knew this woman and her wonderful assistants were about their business and our day was in good hands. Her communication was prompt, her guidance and innovative design ideas were greatly appreciated, and her organization was top notch. We also used Blush's services for our floral arrangements and a few of our decor rentals. We had a less than generous floral budget, but you wouldn't have been able to tell with the way Tami and her team beautifully arranged my cream roses, peonies and hydrangea; complete with faux "ice crystal" sticks to give them the icy feel of the witch's castle in Narnia. The large birch branches they supplied really amped up our ceremony space and gave it that soft, wintery, Narnia theme we were going for. Can't thank and recommend her enough :)
Tami and her team were amazing we became good girlfriends while planning my wedding lol it takes a special type of person to handle my crazy.... She was professional yet very personable and she whipped my bridal party in to shape. My wedding day was flawless, if there was a problem I never heard or noticed it. My husband and I are forever grateful for making our wedding day one for the books
I had a great experience with Blush. Tami was very helpful and took the stress of planning a wedding away. We were able to enjoy the planning of the wedding and actual wedding night.
Very professional and thoroughReviewed on 12/21/2014 Stefani T
Blush wedding & event planning firm provided very professional day-of coordination for my wedding. Although the service we purchased was called their "day-of" package, they provided very thorough and detailed support and planning from the day that we signed the contract to retain their services. One of their strong points is their keen attention to design aesthetics (e.g. floral design, reception venue and church decoration). They also have great connections with several wedding-related vendors, and they were able to negotiate discounted pricing for us for a couple of our vendors. Additionally, they did a wonderful job of keeping all aspects of our wedding and reception on schedule. Our only concern was the cost of the services that they provided. If you anticipate being very involved in planning your wedding, you might be better served by retaining the services of a vendor that does not charge as much. However, if you prefer to leave all of the planning to a vendor, you'll be in great hands with blush.
Well worth the investment...Reviewed on 10/24/2013 Alisha M
Tami is awesome!! She is extremely knowledgeable at her craft, and that made me feel super comfortable entrusting her and her blush team to execute my vision on my big day. The wedding day went smoothly and all of my guests had a blast...that was due to the hard work logistically behind the scenes by Tami and her blush team. I am so pleased with the service, and would absolutely recommend Tami to any bride looking for a day-of coordinator.
