I would highly recommend SBTN! We LOVED working with Nicole! She was literally my lifesaver for our wedding day and for the wedding process. She was quick to respond to emails, handled things with my vendors (even ones that kind of became intense towards the wedding day), set everything up as I had planned, cleaned & packed up all of our items, and kept our entire day running smoothly. I honestly don’t know what I would’ve done without her. I’m very Type A so her organization and timelines were a positive thing in my book. Girlfriend also stays super calm throughout the day, which is much needed for a stressed out bride, and is fun to talk to. As weird as it sounds, she’s so personable that if I lived in WA, I’d want to be friends with her.
Basically if you are looking for a wedding coordinator and stumble upon these ladies, there’s no need to look further.
Also, I greatly appreciated seeing the insta pics they took. I had no idea & it was great to wake up the next day to see things I didn’t get to get a close look at. Thanks ladies!!

Tamara and Claire were amazing! They were so encouraging and supportive through the whole experience. I am not good at planning or coming up with awesome ideas and making them happen. The entire prospect just sounded exhausting to me and Pinterest was overwhelming! But they continually reassured me that everything would work out even when I wondered how on earth it would happen. They did so much. I only ever talked to my florist once and they just coordinated everything with them, including the delivery and setup. They coordinated rentals of decor that I never had to be involved with, and answered every single silly question and freak out I had. On the day of, I didn't have to worry about anything. Even when the seating got completely messed up, Claire handled it and it never had to be my problem.
They took care of absolutely everything. Tamara helped come up with beautiful decor ideas I never would have thought about(and helped implement them). My wedding was far more lovely and relaxed than it would have been if we hadn't hired them. We loved working them and will be recommending them to everyone we can. Hiring a wedding coordinator was one of the best decisions we made through the wedding planning process! If you want someone who will put your mind at ease and be your biggest cheerleader throughout your wedding planning process, these are the gals for you!

Tammy and the team are absolutely amazing! They made what would have otherwise been a very stressful endeavor an unforgettable, beautiful experience! The SBTN crew have such calming, positive personalities and are so great to work with. Not even the smallest detail was overlooked, even though we didn’t have a whole lot of time to plan! My wedding day was more beautiful than I ever could have imagined and was virtually stress free...something that is invaluable on such an important occasion! All of our guests were beyond impressed. I couldn’t have asked or even wished for anything more. 5/5. Do yourself a favor and choose Simply by Tamara Nicole to plan your wedding!!! You’ll be so glad you did! More...

Elle was our wedding planner and was absolutely vital to the success of our big day. She was calm and to the point, gently reminded us to do things (which we needed a lot of), was never pushy and accommodated all our preferences and changes. Tamara and her team did our flowers and decor and OMG the end result blew me away. It was like an enchanted indoor wildflower forest and such a huge wow factor. This is a great team to work with and they will take of you and make your vision come true! More...

I'm a calligrapher and stationery designer and have been working with Tamara and her team for the past year. I have to say, every time, it is a TREAT!These ladies are nothing short of amazing. When you hire a planner, you can probably expect them to be organized, detail-oriented, etc. With these ladies, you get so much more. I've witnessed first-hand, this team act as friends, cheerleaders, and "right arms" to couples. Their can-do attitude also makes working with them as a vendor a breeze.SBTN is also amongst some of the most creative in the industry when it comes to event design. We recently worked on a 1st birthday party together and it was fit for a king with a book-shaped cake, lush florals, and a lounge!If you are thinking about hiring these ladies, whether it be for your wedding, baby shower, or something else, don't think twice! You won't regret it. More...

What an amazing experience. When my husband and I decided to elope the only thing I felt I was missing out on my special day was having a wedding full of flowers. We decided to get photos done by Jordan Voth for our one year anniversary and I had noticed Tamaras flowers in the Dress theory when I picked up my dress. I sent her an email and she was so eager to take on my teeny tiny request of one bouquet. When I picked up my bouquet I instantly started crying! It was absolutely perfect. She obviously hand picked every single flower and she put her heart into it. I ended up drying out the flowers and putting them in a shadow box. I EVEN GOT A FULL SLEEVE TATTOO OF IT! Right now I am in the process of commissioning someone to cross stitch it for me too! That is how obsessed I am! So over the moon thankful for Tamara and her beautiful work. Email her today! She is prompt, sweet and really cares! More...

When you need your wedding planner to be a pinterest-worthy designer, florist and a top notch day of coordinator, look no further than Tamara and her team! We've had the pleasure of working with Tamara for years and can't tell you how much we love her awesome creativity and utmost professionalism. She is also the sweetest and most joyful person to be around! More...

Tamara has the perfect blend of organization, knowledge, and personality. She exudes a sense of calm yet assertiveness to get things done from the styling of a wedding to keeping the timeline on track. My wife was at ease throughout the planning process because of Tamara's checklists and attention to details a regular couple wouldn't know unless they had planned 100+ weddings like she has. She truly works WITH her couples as a team to make their vision come to life. More...

I will start by saying this: You WILL want to hire Tamara and her team to plan your next event and I will tell you why. Tamara is such an easy and fun person to work with. Besides her amazing energy, she is brilliant when doing event planning. She has the BEST ideas and knows everyone and every way to get things executed much better than you ever dreamt of. First birthday parties are HUGE in my culture so we knew we would need help to make the party of our dreams happen. We hired Simply by Tamara Nicole and I would hire her a thousand times again. Our experience was beyond and beyond. We had a vague idea for the theme of our son's first birthday, but we knew we wanted something personal to him. We went with what we saw he likes the most: his books. We also decided for brunch. I was so happy when Tamara was on board with this and from these simple ideas she managed to plan the best first birthday party for ourselves and our guests. Every single detail was perfectly curated. We had an ice cream cart, balloon twisting and face painting, a mimosa bar, a coffee bar, a kids lounge, an incredible 3D cake and a great selection of food. There were also a lot of other decor details and nice touches (I just can't list them all). Overall, the party definitely pleased all of our guests, from the little ones to the big ones. On top of this, Tamara designed and created all the floral details herself, which complemented the vision and color palette of the party very flawlessly. I mean, I could spend a day writing all about that party and Tamara and her team. This is the best party we had. We just wished we knew her back in the days when we got married, so she could have planned a timeless event for us as well. We can't wait for our vow renewal one day. Meanwhile, we will cherish the memories of our son's first birthday, for which we keep receiving compliments from our guests as the best birthday party EVER! More...

I've been working with Tamara and the SBTN team for a few years now and can't sing their praises enough! They are some of the most upbeat, organized, and fun ladies I get to work with. As a professional photographer, I see first hand how much work goes into weddings behind the scenes and Tamara nails it every time (I don't know how they do it!). She cares so much about her couples and working with her is a joy! I always look forward to our next wedding or collaboration. More...

I can't sing higher praises for Tamara and her team of rockstar wedding planners.I've been working in the Seattle wedding industry as a pastry chef for the past decade, and have worked with Simply by Tamara Nicole (SBTN) on countless weddings. In addition, Tamara planned my own wedding back in October 2015 -- and I chose her out of all the other planners I've ever worked with, because there's no one better in the entire city (or probably on the entire West Coast). As a former client of theirs, and as a current industry colleague, I can list several things that stand out about SBTN:1) Communication -- always on time, always up-to-date. SBTN has a knack for sharing exactly the right pieces of information to couples and vendors at precisely the right time. Many other planners either over-communicate (which creates confusion for everyone) or fail to communicate timelines and key responsibilities to vendors and clients when needed (which is very bewildering!). This is not the case with SBTN. Communication grade: A++2) Personality -- upbeat, cheerful, professional, unflappable under stress. Of course, most *good* wedding planners are good at handling stress, or they wouldn't last. But everyone on the SBTN team manages to blend a cool and calm temperament with a smiling and optimistic spirit that puts everyone at ease and reminds the client and their vendors that a wedding is a *celebration*! It's a happy occasion, people...! Pick a planner like Tamara who loves weddings, and is excited to be there working for you throughout the weeks and months of planning, who keeps smiling and keeps everything on track from early in the morning to final teardown at 1AM, making your day magical -- not someone who's just going through the motions. Personality grade: A++3) Creative diversity -- this is huge. Take a look through the portfolios of most high-rated wedding planners and you'll start to see a common thread. Lots of "Pinterest" weddings that all look the same, in the same color palette, with the same flower species, with the same escort cards. It starts to look soulless. Now, go take a look through SBTN's wedding portfolio. You'll see weddings of every color and flavor. You'll see couples of all kinds, shapes, orientations, personalities. And you'll see how beautifully and effortlessly Tamara & the team have captured the essence of those couples and have reflected their clients' unique taste and style in each of those weddings. No cookie-cutter events here! Creativity grade: A++Can't thank everyone at SBTN enough for raising the bar for wedding planners and for the wedding industry as a whole, for pulling off the planning and coordination of my own wedding so flawlessly, and for always making my job so incredibly easy as a fellow wedding industry professional.

Hands down! Tamara and her team are not only fun to work with but the ladies know how to keep everything under control without stress. Music to my ears starts playing when my clients have them as their wedding planning team, I pretty much communicate with them and I'm able to keep any stress away from our clients! If you want someone amazing, detail oriented, sweet, someone who listens, someone that will feel like a friend HIRE HER or her team! She's loved by the industry and has so many connections to get you the dream wedding you want! More...

I hired Tamara to plan my big baby shower and it was fabulous! When it comes to planning, I am the worst so i knew hiring an organize planner like Tamara would be so helpful. She pulled off our baby shower in short notice and got it all together. From the start, she was on it getting together vendors, ideas and brought my tropical baby shower to life! Everything I told her i wanted, Tamara made it happen! My baby shower almost felt like another wedding because it was so fun and cute so perfectly put together. It was so nice to not stress about a thing going into my baby shower. Even the littlest things, Tamara helped me out by taking another step just to make things easier on me and I’m so thankful! I absolutely enjoyed working with her and I’m positive all of her clients do too! Tamara’s positive, relaxed, fun energy and amazing taste and knowledge in the industry is the planner you need for your special event More...

Where to even begin?! Words can't express how thankful and appreciative we are that Tamara and Nicole came into our lives. I have been envisioning my wedding day since I was a little girl and these two made that dream come true. They are so calm and organized and bring so many great ideas to the table. We really wanted our guests to feel a part of the wedding, and they helped make this happen, incorporating so many special details and touches. I love how much they truly listen and care about their clients - and will go above and beyond to help make your dreams come true. Plus, they have fun doing it and both are such genuine, generous and thoughtful humans - you almost feel like your hanging out with your girlfriends! Tamara and Nicole truly exceeded my expectations for my wedding day. And because of them, I was able to relax and be present. It was one of the most magical days of my life -and I know for certain I could not have pulled it off without them. Our friends and family still tell us it was one of the best weddings they have been to (which is one of the best compliments you can receive!). I highly, highly recommend Simply by Tamara Nicole - you will not be disappointed one bit!!! More...

Where do I even begin! Tamara and her team are amazing. My husband and I had the pleasure of working with her for a full year planning our beautiful wedding. First off, Tamara is so sweet and truly cares about her clients! She connected us with the best vendors in the Seattle area to where I was not worried about a single aspect of the wedding. We are also a couple from out of town and Tamara went above and beyond to make sure all of our DIY projects were completed and was the eyes and ears on the ground. Tamara consistently checked in with us to see how we were doing and if we had any stressors she could help with. She always looked out for our best interest, was creative, advocated for us with our vendors, and made sure to personalize her approach to our style and needs. Her confidence in what she does is unmatched and made any stressor go away. The day of the wedding, she made sure any hiccups were taken care of and checked in with us to make sure we were still good through out the entire evening. I couldn’t say enough good things about our experience with her. I highly recommend if your getting married to check her out! You won’t be sorry. More...

I cannot say enough great things about Tamara and everyone at the SBTN team!! I do not know how I would have gotten through the planning process without them. Tamara made the day-of SO much more enjoyable for me! There was even a last minute linen emergency that she conquered seamlessly!! She truly is in her bride's corner and will go above and beyond to make your wedding everything you want it to be and more. I'll forever be thankful for all of her help and support from start to finish!! :) More...

We are so happy we had Simply by Tamara Nicole as our wedding planner. Lindsay Comfort was our day of coordinator and we could not have ask for anyone better! She was so sweet and attentive. Our wedding was for nearly 200 guests in Seattle. The ceremony was at St. James Cathedral and the reception was at Axis Pioneer Square. Lindsay and Claire focused mainly on the reception at Axis and when we arrived after the ceremony, I was so happy with how the space looked. It was beautiful and better than I had imagined.

My family is used to helping with weddings and was very hands on with many of the details. We wanted a lot of personal touches to go into the day to save money and make it more personal so we did the signature cocktails, name cards, gift table, homemade cakes, and most of the decor ourselves. Lindsay was able to take what my family had made for the reception and set it up beautifully! My parents loved Lindsay too and totally trusted her with putting everything together :)

Everything went so smoothly and we love how our day turned out! Lindsay was very calming and understanding. She took the stress out of wedding planning! Thank you Lindsay!

Such a big thank you to Tamara and her team! My husband and I truly appreciated having their help in planning prior to the wedding, and especially pulling through all of the plans to execute on our big day flawlessly. We knew that the day was CRAZY and Tamara and her team worked SO HARD to make it all happen -setting up early and cleaning up until 2am in the morning! The wedding was absolutely gorgeous -- the vision and all of the little guest touch points all came together seamlessly. Thanks to Tamara and Claire leading the team, we didn't have to think about a thing other than focusing on getting to marry our best friend. :) More...

I can’t say enough good things about Tamara. She is detail oriented, focused, and on top of her game! She is extremely responsive to emails and texts and makes you feel like you are her only bride (when clearly you’re not!). Tamara brings great ideas to the table and thinks of the littlest details to make your wedding special. But even better is that she took my fuzzy ideas of what I wanted for a wedding and made them come to life. Tamara is also immensely helpful with the budget. She made some great suggestions on where we would get the most bang for our buck and where we could find some great deals.

The day of my wedding was so smooth and relaxing (I don’t know how many brides can say that!). All of my other vendors LOVED Tamara and her team. She worked really hard at making my vision come true with an end product that was better than any of my wildest dreams. I could have never done it without Tamara.

My number one recommendation to all brides is to hire Tamara! She is worth her weight in gold!

I don't even know where to begin, or how I can even express the talent, professionalism, and expertise that Tamara possesses. My husband and I worked with Tamara for the entire year leading up to our wedding. We are two people who know what we do and do not like, but needed help executing our vision. Tamara did just that AND more. Tamara brought our ideas to life while also using her creativity to show us other ideas she thought we would be interested in---which we always were! Not only is Tamara an incredible planner (and person!) she knows everyone in the industry and was able to connect us with vendors that understood our vision and were able to deliver a solid product/service. Tamara is a delight to work with and throughout this process became more than just a wedding planner, she became our friend. She is patient, kind, organized, and never ceased to amaze us. Tamara helped us be able to plan stress free and enjoy our wedding day with no worries. No matter what happened, we knew she would have the ability to fix it and ensure our big day went off without a hitch. Weddings can be expensive, but without a doubt I can say the best money we spent was on Tamara. I can't stress how magnificent she is--we were beyond impressed with her services from beginning to end. We are so thankful we had the opportunity to have Tamara coordinate our wedding. Do yourself a favor and make sure you get Tamara on your team--I promise you won't regret it! More...

Planning a wedding is such a GIANT endeavor that you just can't do it on your own. Tamara takes the time to get to know her clients, understand their vision, and guides you in a creative direction to enhance what you want, but keep it well within your budget. She recommended multiple vendors, and was at every appointment to help narrow down vendors we wanted to work with. Also, wedding day coordination requires the perfect blend of personality, creativity, authority and organization. Especially when you have a high maintenance wedding party that you're trying to wrangle together for photos and the reception, and Tamara and her company excelled in this endeavor. My husband and I never had to worry that she was going to drop the ball, and we never felt overwhelmed because she was so good at handling everything. Everything about the planning stages and wedding day went so smoothly with her help. I highly recommend Tamara. You will not regret it! More...

I myself work in the wedding industry as a pastry chef, and my professional experience with Tamara has always been outstanding. Hiring Tamara to help plan and coordinate my own wedding was the first and easiest decision that my then-fiancé and I made in the whole process. There are many characteristics that good wedding planners have in common. Tamara possesses them all: patience and grace under pressure, adaptability and problem-solving skills, a strong aptitude for budget management, extensive knowledge of the wedding industry and current trends, and a passion for organization and logistics. Not only that; she also has a number of other talents and traits that set her apart from the rest:

1) Compassion and curiosity: Tamara has a big heart and is really open-minded. This means she's interested in finding out what YOU dream of and envision for your day, and she has the love and energy to carry all those visions through to the actual wedding in a tangible way. She was always sensitive to our emotional experience, and her thoughtful texts and thorough emails meant that my husband and I were as relaxed as can be. We knew we were in good hands.

2) Awe-inspiring attention to detail: Tamara misses *nothing*. Obviously you'd expect all the major logistical details to be taken care of, and they were, seamlessly. But the icing on the cake was all her little touches that made the whole event incredibly personal.

3) Character and integrity: Tamara continued to help us handle an irksome issue with our rentals company even when her contract with us was technically over. Her professionalism doesn't end when the wedding is done. Furthermore, she managed all our vendors with warmth and friendliness, and yet retained her business-like attitude that created good boundaries for everyone and a clear sense of what to do and where to be. She was straightforward and clear in all her dealings.

Look no further than Simply by Tamara Nicole. Our debt of gratitude to her is huge!

I can’t say enough good things about Tamara, she simply is the best! Half way through planning our wedding, we realized we really need someone to execute our vision on the wedding day and we wanted to have our families and friends to enjoy the day not running around setting up the venue. After did some research and met with few different planners, as soon I met with Tamara I just knew she was the right person. She is so easy going with her bubbly personality, attention to details and really knows the industry. She always answers my emails timely, even when we have multiple emails going back and forth at the same time! I couldn’t imagine our day without Tamara, she communicated with all the vendors and executed the day exactly as we envisioned. She is super organized, professional and simply AMAZING! More...

Where do I even start? It was almost as if Tamara was born to become a wedding planner! Her name should be "Simply Phenomenal" By Tamara Nicole. Because she is just that. Tamara has been a pleasure to work with from the start. You can tell that she absolutely loves her job, is passionate about weddings, and above all else, cares deeply about her brides and their hopes for their big day. She was the only and only wedding planner I interviewed & I knew within minutes she would be easy and creative to work with. During the planning process, ever single email, every single question, text, slight detail was attended to. There were times when we had 4 or 5 different emails about different parts of the wedding going back and forth, and she replied to all of them in a timely fashion and left no question unanswered. And she always asked how I was doing, do I have fun plans for the weekend, etc. Did I mention how much she cares Tamara is organized, and was always up to the know on what's going on with my wedding even when it seemed like she had so many others going on! She is full of fun and creative suggestions, knows so much about the vendors and the wedding industry- she is a wealth of knowledge. My wedding day was absolutely perfect. Everyone kept saying how calm I was during the morning when we were getting ready...I wasn't worried about a thing because I trusted Tamara would handle anything and everything. She brought along an assistant, Becca, to help make sure everything was perfect and Becca was also amazing! Tamara went above and beyond for my wedding...when I was running out of budget for "extras" like tablecloths, she made them herself, she packaged our wedding favors (all 155 of them), helped with the escort cards and the entree selections. I could go on and on. The week of my wedding she texted and emailed and asked how I was feeling/if I was worried about anything. In my opinion, she is the ONLY wedding planner to hire. I am forever grateful to her! More...

There are not enough words for amazing that I can use to describe working with Tammy and her team at SBTN. From the moment I first met her, I had a feeling she was going to do a great job being our wedding coordinator. She was first vendor I hired for my wedding and the best wedding decision I made.

I always tend to stress out more than necessary and Tammy made sure to ask me what I was the most stressed about so we could tackle it first and eliminate the stress. With every email, phone call, text, and meeting that we had, I would just become more and more impressed. And we are talking about a woman who was due to give birth to her first child around my wedding date!

If she was at all stressed herself or had anything else going on, we never knew. She gave her full attention and commitment to our wedding and probably a whole lot more than we ever could have asked for. She was always so prompt to respond to me and all of my wedding vendors (even mere days after giving birth!) so that I wasn't bombarded with questions.

Since our wedding was so close to Tammy's due date, she left us in the hands of her associate coordinator, Claire, for wedding day coordinator duties. I met with Claire before and we bonded over our love of football, specifically the Seahawks. She's so sweet and friendly and every bit as capable and organized as Tammy. Throughout the day there were so many little things that came up that she just took care of so we didn't have to worry.

Tammy was a true partner throughout our entire wedding. She worked so hard to make sure my husband and I got the wedding we envisioned and she tackled it with such warmth and grace and love that we couldn't help but become friends with her in the process. :) If you get to work with Tammy to plan your wedding, consider yourself one of the lucky ones!

Tamara is an amazing person to work with! She and her team made everything run so smoothly on my wedding day, and she provided so much help to me prior to the big day. She is very detail oriented, and extremely creative - two very important characteristics the have in a wedding planner!

Tamara helped me style my wedding, and the results were gorgeous. She knows her stuff inside and out, has a very creative mind and talent for design, and has fantastic vendor connections throughout the Seattle area.

The dedication and focus she provides her clients is amazing, and I feel very lucky to have found her! She is so easy (and FUN!) to work with; it was an honor getting to know her during my wedding planning process.

You will not be disappointed with SBTN!!!

My family and I were so fortunate to find Tamara to help us plan my daughters wedding on October 18, 2014. From the moment we met her, we knew spending a year in the planning phase would be delightful. What we didn't know was how tireless, creative, responsive, inventive, reassuring, connected, and incredibly ORGANIZED and dedicated she was. She never missed a beat while pregnant with her adorable son and with his birth thereafter - yet we would have totally understood.

She kept us excited and calm throughout the entire process, even sending little notes of encouragement and offers to help with anything. Her vendor recommendations were outstanding, and we have new, life long friends due to meeting and working with these quality people. We are blessed.

Tamara's ideas and suggestions were unique and personal to us, and she created many decor items herself! To say she is extremely talented while being incredibly personable just doesn't seem descriptive enough. My husband witnessed her in action during set up (with so many details!) and called her a "marvel to watch." She was the conductor of her own orchestra, a queen bee, a supreme leader who so calmly handled a thousand details with a never ending smile. So many of our guests told me it was one of the very BEST WEDDINGS they'd ever attended, and appreciated the relaxed evening versus a rushed agenda, even though we had so much planned and a few surprises in store.

As parents of the bride, we got to relax and enjoy every moment of this spectacular day, without a single worry or thought about what to do next. I admire her as a professional event planner, but she feels like an adored family member now. It's an unexpected gift! THANK YOU, Tamara...for everything! My baby girl had the wedding of her dreams, and our every dream was fulfilled. Enjoy your much deserved and overdue maternity leave with your precious bundle of boy and your sweet, patient husband! :) We could not give you a higher recommendation!

Tamara was so great to work with and she really listened to what we were looking for. Our wishes were not necessarily to have everything that is traditional in a wedding and she really supported and helped us in what we were wanting in our wedding. She made it always about us and what we were wanting. All the vendors she recommended were awesome and we received discounts from some of the vendors since we were working with her which was a great benefit and helped out. I'm so glad we had her there to handle everything. It really let my husband and I to live in the moment and not have to worry about all the things that needed to be done around us. We were able to enjoy our party and we had a blast!!!!! Our day would not have been as special and enjoyable if we did not have her taking care of things why we were living the moment and making memories! More...

Tamara is simply awesome! My husband and I hired her for our day-of coordinator and our wedding would not have gone as perfectly as it did without her. I had a huge list of items for her to setup, and she and her husband executed everything amazingly. Our ceremony and reception spaces looked so beautiful, and I know that so much of that was her doing. Not only did she deal with setup though, she also obviously had to coordinate.

She was so professional, making sure we had everything ready to go, organized. Made sure all the vendors knew when to show up, helping get the timeline perfect! People knew where to walk, where to stand. And I’m sure she did so many other behind-the-scenes things that I never even got to see or know about. But I never had to worry that things weren’t going to go well, because I trusted that she would take care of whatever came up.

Nothing fazes this woman- she is the best! Her services are affordable, and so so worth it. She goes above and beyond any expectations, and is so much fun to work with. I cannot recommend her more for a day-of coordinator. As an aside, her design work is also amazing! So while I wanted to do my own crafting and projects for my wedding, I would highly recommend her for full coordination if you need design help. This lady has amazing taste and design sense/skills! She just made top three for Seattle Bride- it’s clear she has made it and is continuing to go places!

Tamara is the perfect blend of organization, knowledge, personality, and ultimately execution. She exudes a sense of calm yet assertiveness to get things done from the styling of a wedding to keeping the timeline on track.

My wife was at ease throughout the planning process because of Tamara's checklists and attention to details a regular couple wouldn't know unless they had planned 100+ weddings like she has.

Although Tamara technically works for her couples, she really works WITH them as a team. Her investment and ownership really sets her apart.

Tamara is an absolute powerhouse wedding planner! She is so professional, fun, friendly, personable, extremely knowledgeable and detail oriented. She is passionate about what she does and is an absolute dream to work with!

Tamara helped us plan the wedding of our dreams, from the vendors to the little details my vision was brought to life! She was very helpful with recommending vendors, setting up appointments and keeping track of everything…it helped me tremendously and kept me very calm throughout the whole planning process to know that Tamara had everything under control.

Our wedding day was flawless and with without her help I don't think that my wedding would have been so successful and seamless. We have gotten so many compliments from guests that our wedding was absolutely beautiful and that it was so much fun they wished it didn't end at midnight… one of my guest said that my wedding was a Pintrest fantasy wedding board that every bride should have! I truly cannot say enough good things about her! She is amazing at what she does. I will truly miss working with her!

Tamara hired my company for a wedding she was planning for one of her clients. She orchestrated a fantastic party. She has become one of my favorite event planners to work for in the Seattle area.

Tamara is without a doubt the best wedding planner. She guided me through all of the step leading up to the big day, including decoration, invitation, vendors and keeping my stress level low. On the wedding day, I didn't have a single stress or worry because I knew she would present a flawless wedding and she ended up exceeding my expectations. It was an absolutely perfect wedding and every last detail had been thought of and executed. I 100% recommend Tamara and her team-- if I were to plan my wedding over again, I would choose her a thousand times over. More...

I actually found Tamara on a wedding site. I decided I wanted her to be my planner because of her reviews. I couldn't have been happier!! Not only did she keep me organized, save me money, pull everything off while keeping me completely calm, she literally made my day so special by bringing her style to the wedding. She made my backdrop, glittered just about everything that was at the wedding, and suggested every vendor that I needed. She made our day (which could have been very stressful) a breeze. I hired her because I live in Atlanta, travel about 3 weeks out of the month and had to plan a wedding in Seattle... She was amazing!!! I have already told several friends in Seattle about her and even gave her name to the hotel concierge who's friend just became engaged. I stand behind her 100%!! I wouldn't even look twice at another planner. Tamara's your girl!!! You won't be sorry!!! More...

I would give Tamara way more than 5 stars if I was able to, she is absolutely AMAZING! From start to finish, she was incredible. From planning meetings over happy hour or cupcakes she is so full of energy and has amazing ideas. She truly understood my vision and helped make everything in my head a reality. She responds to you so quickly and make the whole planning process seem so much less stressful. I hired Tamara to be my day of coordinator and for styling, and it was probably the best money spent for the wedding. The wedding day went off perfectly and everything was so incredibly beautiful. Not only is she one of the hardest working people I've ever met she really is one of the sweetest and genuine people I know. HIGHLY HIGHLY recommended!! Thank you Tamara! More...

We were about 10 months out from our desired wedding date when we realized we couldn't do it on our own, especially planning a wedding in Washington when we lived in Montana. Hiring Tamara was the best decision for us with her knowledge of the industry and vendors in the area. We communicated mostly via email and Tammy was always accessible and very responsive. She also helped us stick to our budget and had so many great ideas that we could DIY to save money. Seeing all of our hard work come together was truly rewarding and the wedding itself turned out better than we could have imagined. It was beautiful and we all had a blast. If you're looking for a planner that is fun, easy going and knows the ropes than Tamara is your gal. Whether you hire her for the day of, or to help you plan from start to finish she'll give 110% and you won't be disappointed. More...

Tamara was my life saver! She was such a help. She kept me grounded through the whole wedding planning process and so fun to work with. My Husband said that hiring her was the best investment we made for our wedding. I will definitely recommend her to anyone and would hire her to plan any of my future big events! Thank you Tammy for all your help amongst all the chaos and drama ;) More...

I can not say enough about Tamara! We hired Tamara to be our day-of wedding coordinator and help us with the flow of the day, set-up and timelines. From the moment I met her, she was bubbly, professional, responsive and just a joy to talk to. I could tell she was someone that knew what she was doing and was happy doing it. We clicked right away and had a blast working together!
Whenever we had questions, Tamara was right there to help answer them. She helped us through all the planning of the day-of timeline, coordinated with our other vendors, walked-though the venue with me to make sure she had my vision "just right" and helped with the ceremony rehearsal the day before.
On the big day Tamara executed my vision perfectly and made sure every detail was exactly as I had laid out for her. Everything looked spectacular! When there was a slight emergency with one of my craft projects, Tamara spent extra time setting it right and made sure everything looked perfect.
Between my husband and I, we needed a couple of things during the night and she had them all in her emergency kit. My family could not stop talking about how sweet, on top of things and professional Tamara was all night and even after the wedding was over. Again, I can not say enough good things about Tamara - I would highly, highly recommend her services to any bride looking for an extra hand on their big day. Thank you, Tamara!

Ladies, look no further...hire this woman!!! As soon as I got engaged, I was certain that I wanted to design my wedding myself but wanted someone there to coordinate everything to make sure it all came together on the day-of. I researched pretty much every well-rated day-of coordinator in Seattle and ended up choosing Tamara because not only did she already have stellar reviews and offered so much for her day-of package, she was incredibly sweet and friendly and amazingly affordable and I knew she would be perfect! I'm a super organized, detail-oriented person and I had always assumed hiring a coordinator for wedding day would just be back up. Boy, was I wrong! It wasn't until wedding day that I realized how totally crazy things were going to get. Even with my obsessive planning, many things had to be changed or dealt with on the day of and many people had to be herded and I truly don't know what I would've done without someone there like Tamara who knew exactly what I wanted, down to the last detail and executed flawlessly so I could focus on my day, my groom, and have tons of fun. I almost forgot there were so many details I wanted coordinated perfectly until I saw everything done, perfectly, from the timing of things to decor items, to bridal party and family. Who would have kept everything on the planned timeline? Who would have laid out all the decor items exactly where I wanted them? Who would have fixed my veil every time it fell out and no one was around who knew how to put it back in? Who would have told bridal party where to go, stand, and cue them? I have no idea, but Tamara was absolutely perfect in executing my vision. My husband Jon and I were totally thrilled with her and can look back at our wedding day as perfect. Thank you!!!! :) More...

Tamara was my Wedding Day savior! I am so thankful I came across her information because I would never have been able to put together my Wedding the way she did. I am not the typical bride who knows exactly what she wants and is excited about the planning! I was actually terrified and had no idea where to start or how to make my visions come to life.

I booked Tamara to do full wedding planning and she did not disappoint. We were in constant communication, and she was very quick to respond and keep me on track. She had great vendor recommendations, and fabulous decorating ideas! Not to mention that she is one of the happiest people you will ever meet. It was obvious that she truly loves what she is doing and will do everything she can to make your day as seamless as possible. On my wedding day I was truly able to focus on the important things (ie: getting ready, taking photos, being nervous) rather than worrying about vendor details, setup, or any other issues. EVERYTHING was taken care of and I am so thankful that I had her during the entire process.

Tamara worked with us from the very beginning and we are SO glad we had her guidance throughout the whole process! We planned our summer wedding in a six month time frame and she was invaluable every step of the way. Obviously, having never planned a wedding before, I was generally overwhelmed with every decision that had to be made and didn’t know where to start with vendors, ideas, budgeting. Tammy made everything manageable with great connections and resources- not mention she had a ton of creative ideas for every aspect of the wedding. This lady is crafty! We tried to do as many things on our own as we could to cut down on cost (made invites, menus, bouquets)- Tammy lead each crafting session and always had more ideas that always added that extra touch.

One great trait she has as a wedding planner is her commitment to making sure that the wedding is a reflection of the couple and fulfills exactly how they envision their special day. She’ll give her opinion if you ask (of course I just happened to agree with her on nearly everything), but she will never push her own ideas or agenda on a couple. She had a positive attitude the whole way that gave me the reassurance that everything would come together in the end. She embraced every idea I had and did her best to make it work. We had incredible peace of mind having her on our team. Not to mention she was a superstar on the day of our wedding- I didn’t have to worry about a thing and was truly able to enjoy my wedding day for start to finish. My wedding day exceeded what I could have hoped for and it wouldn’t have been what it as without Tammy’s help.
Clearly, I have a lot to say and recommend Tammy to any bride. Not to mention, I like her a WHOLE lot as a person and feel like we really became friends throughout the process. Love this lady!

What can we say about Tamara?!?! NO WORDS can explain how happy we were with her. From the day my husband and I said we had chosen her to be our day of coordinator, she was eager to help us with everything. She had great advice on other vendors, and was very helpful when it came to our photo booth props ( which EVERYONE LOVED). Tamara went out of her way and worked her butt off the day of our wedding so my husband and I had nothing to worry about. So if you want someone who is eager to help and go above and beyond her call of duties.. CHOOSE TAMARA NICOLE! I guarantee you will not be disappointed!! More...

Tammy was INCREDIBLE! As the maid of honor I wanted this day to be PERFECT for my sister. It was something we had been dreaming about forever it seemed there was no way to live up to our expectations, yet Tammy not only made it happen, she pulled things together in such a way that the wedding was more beautiful and smoothly orchestrated than I could have ever imagined. Not to mention some of the deals she was able to broker to make things happen. She dedicated endless hours and time into perfecting our vision. Despite her busy schedule she was always accomodating with the most amazing attitude throughout. Her enthusiasm kept us encouraged amidst the most overwhelming of moments. It was only looking at the pictures, after the fact, that we were really even able to appreciate everything she did. Tammy was priceless! I strongly recommend her services to anyone! More...

Tamara is a gem. She is easy to work with, positive, energetic, organized and professional! She has an abundance of great and creative ideas, and she knows how to work on a budget. Everything you could ever want in a wedding planner. We got so lucky with her! Thanks to her help our wedding ran smoothl and totally stress-free. The decorations were even better than we imagined, we loved our cupcakes (done by a vendor she works with), and overall we were just so glad she was there to help guide us through. We got so much praise not just from our guests but from our caterer, photographer, even my hair and makeup stylist because of how organized she was and how easy it was to communicate with her. It was like having one of my good friends plan my wedding! She is just fabulous. Thanks Tamara, you're the best! More...

We hired Tamara as our day of coordinator for our wedding in July. She was so great from the time we hired her, up to the very end of the reception. She responded to my emails quickly & had answers to all my questions. She gave a lot of ideas, met up with me to go over wedding details & was very organized and helpful. She helped me with the wedding timeline and kept in touch with my vendors. Having her at our wedding left me and my husband to enjoy our day. Not only us, but our family also. She helped with setting up our wedding ceremony, made sure everything looked good for our reception & with everything that she had to keep up with, she still managed to check up on us during the reception. Tamara did an awesome job with keeping everything on track. I would recommend any of my friends or family to Tamara. More...

We hired Tammy as our day of coordinator for our July wedding, and it was one of the best decisions we made! Tammy was very friendly, professional, and upbeat. From our first meeting to the day of the wedding, she was very organized and really got a feel for our vision. She went above and beyond our expectations throughout the entire wedding planning process. She even pitched in to create a wonderful dessert table display! Having her there the day of the wedding put everyone at ease. I highly recommend Tammy to any bride considering a wedding coordinator; you will be very happy to have her there! More...

Tammy was so wonderful, I contacted her about a month out of my wedding to be our day of coordinator. She was very easy to get a hold of and made herself available right away to meet at least once a week each week until the wedding. Such a joy to work with, very easygoing and always has a smile on her face. She is optimistic and a pleasure to be around. I know she had to jump through many loop holes the day of the wedding, including putting together our 13 boutonnieres and 13 fresh flower bouquets that morning because I did not plan very well for that portion. She also printed out our programs the morning of our big day, all of these items were beautiful, just perfect. This is just a small taste of how much she values her brides and is willing to go above and beyond the call of duty to make sure everything is running smoothly and the couple stays happy! I would work with Tammy on any upcoming party, she truly made a difference on my wedding day and I know she could do the same of any of her clients. Tammy, thank you so much for making my happiest day on this earth a lot less stressful and very memorable! We will forever be grateful! XOXO Mrs. Destiny Talamoni More...

Tammy was absolutely amazing! I hired her as my day-of-coordinator for my October wedding and she went above and beyond my expectations! She was always so organized and met with me on multiple occasions with and without my wedding vendors. Tammy has a very sweet personality and she is definitely a people pleaser. She listens to your vision and has really good feedback and ideas that fit with your style. On the days leading up to my wedding she sent me multiple reassuring messages and knew just the right words to calm me down and to know it was all going to turn out great...and it did! Tammy goes above and beyond and I definitely recommend her! More...

If you are looking for a planner in Seattle, look no further. I was stressed and overwhelmed before I met Tammy. Now I am as calm as can be! She has kept me way under budget allowing me extra $$ for those last minute details every bride needs to make their wedding unique and interesting. We have the best time when were together. She is extremely organized, amazingly crafty, and knows all the "hottest" wedding ideas. I didn't have to research a thing, she came to me with all the ideas(-: Which is what every bride needs! I will recommend her to all my friends. She travels too! More...

Making sure I kept things in my budget range would have been SO hard without all Tammy's help. And as a very close friend she went above and beyond helping me with making my own invitations, planning all my girlie parties and dress shopping (which were so amazing!) and even did my hair and make-up for my big day! I absolutley love her style, but she was awesome at seeing my vision and making it happen. It was such a perfect day and I couldn't have asked for a better person to help me with every detail! More...
