Having Tara and her daughter help us with our rehearsal and day of coordination was the best decision! They were so kind and so helpful and knew exactly what to do. They helped decorate and make sure the day went smoothly. They got back to me very quickly with any questions or answers we had. If any hiccups along the way came they solved the issue with ease. I felt very calm knowing they were on top of everything. I would recommend Finesse Weddings and Events to anyone getting married or just need extra help planning an event. Our day was perfect because of them!

Details: Wedding • 151 - 200 guests • Partial planning (help in select areas) • Setup • Day-of coordination • 6 - 8 months • My home, venue, etc.

Tara was amazing throughout the whole process!! From start to finish she was continuously checking in and making sure things were in order. With little insight into my mind she created a beautiful ceremony and reception that my guest and myself will remember forever. It was simply beautiful!! She gave me such peace of mind as a new bride that I would highly recommend her at your next event!

Details: 101 - 150 guests • Decorator

All we had to do was relax and have fun at our 30th Wedding Anniversary Party because Tara planned and did everything for us beautifully! The refreshments, decorations, set-up and clean up were all done perfectly for us so that we could have a worry free perfectly wonderful time. The food was delicious!

Tara and Scott did an outstanding job. They removed a large chunk of stress from our shoulders and allowed us to focus on our special day together. When something needed fixed, she was on it. When something wasn’t right, she was already addressing it before I could say something. Exceptional service and attention to detail. Highly recommend.

Tara was amazing on my wedding day. She helped everything go smoothly and kept track of all the details while being sweet and friendly without showing any signs of stress. I’m so glad she was there for me and would highly recommend her to anyone else!
Background Check

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Our pricing is generally based on the entire event and not priced out for individual projects and meetings, etc.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I find out their basic needs first. If it is something I can help with then I set an appointment for a consult, take down more information and provide a price quote.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I trained on the job in the catering department at two colleges. I have planned and coordinated 100s of corporate events, parties and weddings. My formal education is elementary education- that requires organizational skills! I also had a business of 500+ consultants and my daughter grew up watching and helping me and has now joined me in our business, Finesse Weddings and Events. We have taken online trainings and learned together.
