We can’t say enough great things about Tanis J Events! We were a destination couple & we thought we’d have to come to Charleston 4 or 5 times to pick out vendors but we followed Tanis’ advice and came in during the first week in November 2015 and got them all done in 3 days! We... Read More couldn’t believe we left Charleston after just meeting her for the first time and had all our vendors picked out. Our wedding day was flawless and we didn’t have to worry about a thing. It was like she read our minds – it was time for toasts & she was standing their with our flutes filled. It was time for cake and there she was with the cake cutter ready to go. Yes Tanis you were right about filling out all your paperwork ahead of time! Lol! We didn’t have to worry about anything all day & didn’t have to talk to any vendors at all. At the end of the night she had all our items ready to go with our parents & two days later we received our damage deposit back from the venue!

When I started my wedding planning I was doing it myself but soon realized that I needed help. I did some research and sort out Tanis initially to help with my budget. Upon our first meeting she explained everything in detail and walked me through things I didn’t even think... Read More about. Then and there I knew I needed to hire her as my partial planner. I must say I made the right choice. Tanis did an amazing job bringing life to my ideas and thoughts. She is very organized, resourceful and thorough. She provided a list of excellent vendors and also did research on the list of vendors I found and wasn’t sure of. She answered all of my emails quickly and would find solutions to any problem I had during the planning stages. Planning a wedding is a lot of work and you need someone to help you with the list of things to do and remember, especially coming down to the end. Tanis did everything from set up to break down and making sure everything was taken care of before she left the venue. Thank you Tanis for your time, patience and kindness. We are very grateful we found you to help us with our wedding. Our family and friends can’t stop talking about how beautiful and amazing our wedding was. You did an excellent job!!

She keeps track of all contracts and notes every little detail to ensure nothing is missed!!
