You cannot find a more organized, energetic, or enthusiastic wedding planner than Tanya Wilbon from The Event Group International. When planning our wedding, Tanya was incredible with anticipating all of our needs, even needs we didn’t know we had! Our pre-wedding worries were... Read More all put to rest thanks to her presence and diligence. Tanya and her incredible team, showed us time and time again, enormous dedication in creating, planning and managing the perfect wedding down to the smallest detail. This was a dream come true !! Tanya went above and beyond the call of duty for us, always offering to do more than was asked of her and without expecting anything more in return. Tanya clearly loves what she’s doing and that’s what makes her an excellent wedding planner. We are very grateful to have found you, Tanya. Kimberly and Claudio, Detroit MI

Honestly, I could not even begin to describe how AMAZING Tanya and her team are! As a bride who is a perfectionist and also planning a destination wedding, my stress level was at an all -time high! From my 1st conversation with Tanya I knew I was in good hands. She went above... Read More and beyond to make sure every T was crossed and every i was dotted. Tanya’s attention to detail, passion for what she does and love for clients helped save me hundreds of dollars! Oh, and I haven't even mentioned her design skills. One word....STUNNING!!!My husband had no idea what Tanya and I had been up to during the whole planning process and when he saw our sweet heart table the day of our wedding, his mouth dropped lol. He reaction was priceless, " oh ok! now I get it. Tanya did her thing!" He looks back at pictures and is still in awe at the astonishing job Tanya and her team did. Almost 2 months after my wedding and we're still getting compliments on the beautiful design. Tanya is an absolute professional with an incredible talent and I will be forever grateful to her for being there for my husband and I! It truly felt like family being a client of The Event Group International. Kelly and Cai, Martone, Denver, CO

I can’t say enough great things about Tanya! From the first meeting where she openly answered all of my questions (and as a bride I had a long list!), to getting to know her as a person, I knew we were in good hands. She listens to exactly what you want and helps to create the... Read More wedding of your dreams, all while staying within your budget. Tanya will negotiate contracts for you, which is great because I’m too intimidated to go back and forth with vendor pricing, but she will go above and beyond to ensure you are getting the most out of your contract. She is so organized and motivated to help stressful couples, especially brides, remain calm and trust that your wedding is in good hands. She sets up appointments for us, went to meetings with vendors with us and kept track of all our expenses and contracts. Tanya is super sweet and very personable, she makes sure that every decision is run by you and that your wedding is what you want. On our wedding day, Tanya and her team made sure everything went smoothly and did a phenomenal job setting up and taking down everything. My husband and I snuck away during cocktail hour into the bridal suite and Tanya and her assistants kept checking in on us to make sure we had enough food and drinks! I can’t say enough kind words about Tanya, she is the best! My wedding was a dream come true and she helped make it all a reality. I still get so many compliments from wedding guests about how beautiful our wedding was and they couldn’t believe how smoothly everything went. If I know anyone who is getting married I definitely refer them to Tanya because she is trustworthy and can help any couple plan the wedding of their dreams! Ashley and Chris Aparichio, Carlsbad, CA

Tanya was truly a blessing to us and most definitely to me, the bride. She was there for me from start to finish!

I cannot say enough about how important Tanya and TEGI team were to making our wedding day a success!! We had planned a beautiful outdoor wedding… and even had a great back up rain plan! But the rain that came that week was more of a flood, and things got crazy really fast. They... Read More never missed a beat. They went above and beyond to make sure all the changes that had to be made were handled so I could enjoy mimosas and my girlfriends while I got ready. We had an AV problem during the ceremony and she literally crawled under a table to make it work for us so our guests never knew there was an issue! They were on top of every detail and even when there were hiccups (as EVERY wedding has!), as the bride I never knew about any of them until people told us stories after the fact! Our flooded outdoor wedding could have been a complete disaster, but because of their dedication, passion and attention to detail – it was one of the best days of our lives! We literally could not have done it without Tanya and her team and we are so thankful they were there to save the day over and over again Kirsten, an extremely HAPPY Bride!!!

Dear Tanya, Words cannot describe how magical our wedding was because of you. There were many times when we thought we just couldn't make this wedding happen, however, your patience, knowledge and dedication made our wedding possible and your personality made it FUN! We do not... Read More know what might have had happened if not for you. You were our savior! Everything flowed smoothly and you kept us free of stress and anxiety. You simply handled everything…every request every detail, every desire and you knew exactly how to make them happen! We want to thank you for the special care and attention you showed us, from designing our wedding cake to complement our Paris, France theme and incorporate our monogram to the breathtaking flowers. Your detailed imagination in naming our guests tables with our favorite places in France was a unique touch. We especially loved your idea for our memorable guests’ favors of custom wine bottles with the exterior of our home transformed into a water color image and named after our family, "Belesis Winery" with each guest name personalized via a ribbon tied tag per bottle. Our guests are still talking about the wine bottles! Our wedding was the most memorable day of our lives and we thank you for that. The greatest compliment to you is that we truly enjoyed our wedding! Dr. & Mrs. Brandon and Elisa Belesis Las Vegas, NV

Our wedding was not just one day - but THREE days of events, including a huge after party, a family luncheon, the wedding itself, a reception and a brunch. Tanya was on the ball with every single action item and made sure that we were on schedule with each thing. The wedding... Read More went flawlessly due to Tanya’s supreme vision and the ability to organize and manage everyone including vendors, caterers, attendants, and everyone in-between. Not a single thing went wrong, at least if it did, I did not know about it. I seriously didn't worry about any of it - because I had her. She was there to cater to my vision and my dream. She knew when to step up and take over and when to hold back so that I could relax and enjoy the most important day of my life. And it was perfect! I wish I could do it all again - including the planning. It was so much fun - and her gentleness helped me to tone down the bridezilla. She never judged me, but simply helped to guide me through this crazy process in a calm and peaceful way. I was grateful for her calmness. Weddings can be stressful - especially if you have a highly charged family on top of a stressed out bride. My experience was the opposite of that because of Tanya’s professionalism and the ability of making me feel at ease. I thank my lucky stars to have found and hired Tanya to manage my wedding. She was amazing. Natalia Levov, Lexington KY

Tanya and team made my wedding a dream come true. My now-husband and I are in our late 20’s and going to weddings every weekend (and have been for the past few years). I went into wedding planning thinking I’d already seen everything and was terrified of having a cliché... Read More “ballroom wedding.” I wanted our wedding to be elegant, but comfortable and fun. Picking Tanya as our wedding planner was a no-brainer. Tanya & team had planned my brother and sister in-law’s intimate dinner party style wedding with 90 guests a few years ago and it was warm, gorgeous, festive and everything else you would want in a wedding. I, on the other hand, was having a 375 person wedding and still wanted it to have the intimacy and warmth so present in my brother’s wedding. The Event Group International led by Tanya accomplished that and so much more. Not only did I get to soak in and enjoy every minute of my wedding (compared to the experience many others told me about wishing they could be a guest at their own wedding), but all of our guests had the best time. The wedding was so beautiful and organic. Every detail down to the lighting of the room was impeccable. Tanya was able to really understand who Roman and I are as a couple and infuse our personality into the decor and feeling of the day. We are so grateful to Tanya and team for planning such a gorgeous and joyous celebration of our love. Love always, Kyla and Roman, Atlanta GA
