Carmen Taylor Weddings and Events is a wedding planning business based out of Cleveland, TN. My name is Desiree Wells, I am the Owner and Lead Planner of Carmen Taylor Weddings. Wedding planning for me started back in 2013, when I started planning our wedding. I truly enjoyed, starting and completing each task while planning. Three years after my own wedding, I began assisting a fellow Wedding Planner, to see if this was something that I wanted to do full time, and I have never regretted that decision, because at that moment, I realized this is what I was made to do. I confidently made the decision to start my own business, Carmen Taylor Weddings & Events. I am so thankful and honored for the opportunities over the past three years of wedding planning and coordinating experience. I always get asked where Carmen Taylor originated from, the name was inspired by our two beautiful kids middle names. That is why I have a family picture because this business wouldn't be what is without my support system. I graduated from Lee University, which is how I ended up in TN. I graduated with a Public Relations degree, which has equipped me to know how to best handle the best to the hardest scenarios that could happen on your wedding day. Some of my favorite parts of planning, are meeting my clients and hearing your vision. I love accompanying my couples to venue walk-throughs, menu tastings, and cake tastings. I love when we check off planning tasks that I you need to get done, because it means we are getting closer to making the most memorable day happen the way you planned! Lastly I love decorating and taking all the Pinterest inspired pictures that we have shared, and the items you purchased or rented and bringing your wedding décor vision to life.
