Through each event we create, we have the unique opportunity to pour our heart, soul and passion into planning and designing every single detail of your dream day. We put it all into the beautiful events we help you create, resulting in memories that you will forever cherish. What could be better than that?
Whether we’re meeting with our amazing couples (who we adore) or uncovering the latest design trends, we pride ourselves in creating innovative and unique events for our couples – surrounded by light, laughter and LOVE. Our passion is crafting those perfect little moments which so candidly capture the love between the people we have the pleasure of working with.
We can’t wait to meet you and become wedding day besties!

Hailing from Bellevue, WA with her handsome husband (and SBTN accountant extraordinaire), two sweet boys, the cutest little girl, and adorable Westie puppy Baron, Tamara is one of the most giving, kind and generous people you will ever meet. After graduating from UW and being accepted to NYU’s dental school, Tamara felt that just wasn’t her passion, and decided to start her own wedding planning and floral design business instead. It all started with a big dream, a blog, and a logo, and here we are nearly 11 years and 200+ events later. BEST JOB EVER!
