15 Years of Special Moments

This week our Special Moments Event Planning Team is stealing the blog away from our Lead Dream Maker, Master Wedding Planner, and fearless leader Tammy Waterman.

Because this past week Tammy celebrated Special Moments Event Planning turning 15!

The Plan

One of the things you will find is that not only do wedding and event planners love to plan for others, but they are pretty awesome planning for themselves and friends too.

Tammy reached out to a number of wedding and event professionals in our Tampa Bay area to pull together an incredible 15th Anniversary Celebration and they all came out in force.

True to her form, Tammy had lists, floor plans, and design elements all lined up.

When you are throwing a party for a milestone event and your guests are all friends, family, and colleagues, you make sure all the details are covered.

Tent. Seating. Décor. Adult Beverages. Food. Dessert. Entertainment. Fun and Favors; she covered it all.

 

Eats and Drinks

From a Sangria Bar to a Champagne Tower, from Hand Rolled Sushi to Charcuterie, Cheese and lots of butler passed hors d’oeuvres.

Wedding industry colleagues came out from across the Tampa Bay region and the state to wish Tammy well and to celebrate how she supports the Tampa Bay wedding industry.

Touching Moments and Tears

Tammy, who never likes to be center stage, barely got through a few heartfelt words and thanking all of our amazing colleagues who made the anniversary celebration such as success.

To wrap up a festive evening, there was one more fun piece that even Tammy didn’t know about.

Our colleague Anna Coats of Marry Me Tampa Bay had reached out to some friends to share a few words of congratulations for Tammy and created this awesome video clip.
