Tara is amazing! She worked with me over a year to plan my two-day Indian wedding. She was supportive throughout the process and always one step ahead. She was able to juggle multiple requests, dealing with differing opinions and suggestions from me and my parents. Being a... Read More business school student, I was extremely busy throughout the year, so I am grateful that I had Tara to attend meetings on my behalf and negotiate any contracts as needed. Tara was also able to give me some unique ideas that I would not have found on my own - we ended up hiring a really cool sketch artist from Elan Artists, who the guests really enjoyed. We wouldn't have had him if Tara had not given us the suggestion. Most importantly for us is that Tara was able to manage our two-day Indian wedding with 300+ guests. She was also appreciative and understanding of the difference in culture between my family and my husband's family. She was able to manage our needs, wants and cultural differences appropriately so both families were happy. Tara is extremely friendly and a smiling face, which definitely something you need during the stress that is wedding planning. Tara and her team (especially Claire who assisted me throughout the wedding) did a great job making my wedding memorable.

Hiring Tara M. Events was the BEST decision we ever made.

Tara helped guide & maximize our budget, she showed us why certain vendors need to be invested in and the importance of timings on the wedding so we would not be rushed & had time for all the things important to us. From the bottom of our heart, thank you Tara!
