Meet the Team

Lovers of lattes, fluffy little pups (ok ALL animals really) and beautifully designed weddings, we’re an enthusiastic team of wedding designers and planners who love what we do, and do what we love. Who knew, right?!

Whether we’re meeting with our excited couples (who we adore!) or discovering the latest and greatest in current wedding design . . . we can often be found creating innovative weddings for couples surrounded by light, laughter, and love. Our passion is in crafting those perfect little moments which so candidly capture the love between the couples we work with, and the weddings we design.

Voted top wedding planners by Seattle Bride Magazine, and having our work featured all over the globe . . . we believe ourselves to be the luckiest gals in the world. Why? Through each wedding we create, we have the unique chance of pouring our hearts, souls, and passion into planning and designing every detail (big and small!) for your dream day. We give our all to the beautiful memories we help you create and cherish. What could be better than that?

Since 2011, our team has been helping couples plan their perfect wedding day. With over 170+ weddings planned, and countless new friendships over the years with our past clients, we’ve loved every moment of it and continue to offer designer services with a boutique feel for brides who dream of an unforgettable day. We can’t wait to meet you and become wedding day best friends!


Tamara Nicole

Lead Boss Babe.  Hailing from Bellevue, Washington with my handsome husband (and SBTN accountant extraordinaire), TWO sons and the cutest little girl, and of course our pup Baron (the Westie) . . . I feel extremely blessed to do what I love and love what I do!  As a former Biology Major (Go UW!), after being accepted into Dental School at NYU, I decided that was just not my passion, and after a few different tested routes, I landed upon Wedding Planning and Floral Design and it is the PERFECT fit!   I started this company with a blog, a logo and big dreams randomly one night, and it’s been over 9 years, and we helped over 180+ couples get married.  Best job EVER.

“Spray tan” #bossbabe, event coordinator and sports team manager, there’s nothing Claire can’t do. Our team’s queen-bee of logistics, Claire has the uncanny ability to keep everything (and everyone!) on track without batting an eye, with an attention to detail that continues to wow both us and our clients. When she’s not cheering loud and proud as a Seahawks fan, hanging with her husband Ryan, or creating memories of her own with her daughter Keilani, baby boy Brady, and pup Jackson . . . Claire works with our brides-to-be as an event leader and amazing coordinator.

A graduate from WWU, Nicole is our in-house social media guru and go-getting event planner, bringing her background in communications and design to the SBTN team. Through her genuine personality and calm demeanor, she helps our couples turn their dreams into reality. In her down time, you might find Nicole car dancing to Beyoncé, brunching with friends or plotting to accomplish everything on her travel bucket list.

 Meet our bubbly, adventurous and super FUN Elle.  Elle has past experience as a Wedding Photographer, but had realized that she wanted to move to the planning side after working with Tamara on a few weddings.  With this past knowledge of the Wedding industry, and all of her diverse jobs (like a tattoo artist- hello calligraphy!) she will bring a wealth of knowledge to any  and all events!

Elle has a can-do and calming presence that can diffuse any situation.  Elle and her son Kale live in Kirkland with their pup Roman.

Jenna is our creative, dog loving, style obsessed girl next door. As a graduate of Gonzaga University School of Law, she is also a licensed attorney!

However, after planning her own wedding with Tamara, Jenna fell in love with the process and left her legal career behind to join the SBTN team and follow her passion.

With top notch attention to detail and her finger on the pulse of all things style, our couples can rest assured that Jenna will bring organization, creativity and FUN to their events!

 Alexa (like Jenna!) was a SBTN bride, now turned Planner! Originally from Sacramento, CA, Alexa met her husband Matt while playing soccer.  She was a D1 Captain, and even played semi-pro!

Alexa was in Project Management, so will keep you well organized throughout your wedding planning. 

She is all about family and sports. They have a 1 year old daughter, and a  17 year old Jack Russell.
