Best of the best

Tammy and her crew are the best and made my wedding day all I could’ve ever dreamed of! The planning process was so smooth and the day of was so easy due to their thoroughness and thoughtfulness. Highly recommended!

Skotti and Leo

Special Moments Event Planning was absolutely incredible on our wedding day! We had hired a different planner over a year out from our wedding who went MIA on us less than 2 months before our big day. My Mom reached out to Tammy, we set up a phone call, hired her, and she came to a meeting at our venue the NEXT day. Not only did she attend the meeting, but she knew every single one of our vendors, their contracts, and what questions to ask our on-site coordinator. Our wedding day ran flawlessly. Every single minute was accounted for in the timeline they created and I knew I didn’t have to worry about a single thing. It was perfect from start to finish. My only regret is not hiring Special Moments sooner!!

I worked with Tammy and Petra for our October wedding and they are the dynamic duo! I can honestly say there is NOT ONE THING I would have changed about the wedding, the team made our dream come true from the vendors to rehearsal and reception. Tammy and team were always great to respond and even worked around our very busy schedules by scheduling things during the evenings and weekends. They made sure every detail was attended to, I honestly don’t know what I would have done without them.

On the wedding day they provided a schedule and made sure everyone was where they needed to be. They made sure all last minute changes were made and we all were having a good time. I would not hesitate to recommend Tammy and Petra to anyone for any event. Thank you ladies for everything!

Incredibly grateful to Tammy & Petra! Tammy Waterman came highly recommended by two of our friends (who both had amazingly beautiful and well planned weddings.) Tammy made sure we had all the best vendors at the best rates, gave us some great ideas, reserved our hotel room blocks, built an amazing candy bar, answered all our questions, and most importantly made sure the whole night of our wedding went smoothly. We found our caterer, our DJ and Lighting guy, our officiant, and our candy supply company through Tammy’s recommendations. We interviewed and met with other vendors, but ultimately went with Tammy’s recommendation in every case. All four received rave reviews from our guests and other vendors. Where we were stuck on floor plan, furniture rentals, allowing kids, deciding on centerpieces, building the timeline, coming up with alternative bouquet ideas, and when to send the invitations and set the RSVP deadline, Tammy jumped in and steered us in the right direction. She directed us to complete an inventory list and assign family and friends to very specific setup tasks. This made the whole setup process go unbelievably smooth. Tammy and Petra arrived early, added their special touch (after checking in with us to make sure it was okay) to our setup, kept our guests in line, dealt with our vendors, made sure we had a break and some appetizers in private after the pictures but before the reception, and stayed late to help us clean everything up. Thank you for all your hard work and for the most wonderful night of our lives!

Where do I even begin? Tammy has been there for me since day one of our planning process. I met her years ago when she planned my sisters wedding, and since then has planned so many friends weddings. Not only is she knowledgable, but she is so honest! She was so patient with me, especially when I would get stressed out and overwhelmed, she would always assure me everything would work out… and it always did!

The vendors they suggested were AMAZING! People that attended my wedding are still talking about everything from the food, to the linens, to the ceremony decor.

They pulled all of my scattered ideas together, and made everything flow beautifully. I have heard many horror stories about wedding vendors, and each and every person Special Moments recommends, exceeded my expectations, and they gave me my dream wedding.

I am so grateful to Tammy , Petra and Alexis. They always responded to my emails, calls, and made me feel like I was important, and not a burden. I can’t recommend them enough. They will work with your budget, and even help SAVE money!

I highly recommend using Special Moments. It will be the best decision you ever make to include them in your wedding planning process and have them apart of your special day:)

Planning a wedding for more than 300 invites with the bride living more than 900 miles away was initially quite daunting. I was relieved and deeply grateful when my daughter and her fiancé decided to hire a wedding planner. After researching the local options, my daughter and her fiancé selected Special Moments Event Planning. As their name suggests, from the moment we signed on, our wedding was a priority and Tammy and her team ( Petra and Alexis )  made us and our wedding feel very special. I would venture to say that our wedding had more unique details (broadway musical theme with a cabaret rehearsal dinner and a very special 10 minute musical at the reception to mention a few). The Special Moments team was on board throughout this year long process. They provided amazing vendor options as well as positive and productive solutions for the many possibly challenges along the way. Beyond their creative problem solving, the Special Moments team was all in with emotional and physical support. It is quite evident that the Special Moments team becomes completely and personally vested when they decide to take on an event. We were so fortunate and blessed to have Tammy and her team from Special Moments Event Planning guide us and hold our hand through a year of planning which resulted in a wedding weekend that exceeded our deepest dreams and desires. I can’t say enough about the care and dedication that the Special Moments team displayed and provided.

Connie and Rob

I cannot even express how amazing Special Moments Event Planning was when I was planning my wedding. Tammy and Petra are truly the DREAM TEAM. They took care of every detail on my wedding day. All I had to do was show up and have a good time! Our wedding was fabulous because we hired Special Moments Event Planning to help guide us through the planning process and then of course the actual wedding day…..they took care of everything! Thank you Tammy and Petra, you two are amazing!

Kyle and Angela

Tammy & Petra were amazing! Our wedding went off without a hitch. We were on a pretty strict budget that we went over with Tammy & team right from the get-go. They recommended vendors who fit our style and vision, but didn’t break the bank. Tammy & team did so many custom things for us and made us feel very special. She even got a calligrapher to do our wedding invitations and response cards! Whenever we had questions about anything, they were always quick to respond and give us a straightforward answer. If you’re on the fence about hiring a wedding planner – do yourself a favor and DO IT! We didn’t want our family/friends to have to worry about anything the day of the wedding (i.e. setup, tear-down, gifts, decorations, etc.). Tammy & team took care of everything so we could enjoy the day as well as our guests. They are behind the scenes all day and you hardly see them working their magic to ensure everything runs smoothly! We are so excited for all the hard work they did for us and would definitely recommend them to other friends/family!

I don’t even know where to begin to talk about how incredibly wonderful the team at Special Moments is! They all worked so hard to make our day the best day ever! Petra was the sweetest, most accommodating person! She literally took care of everything for us! Including packing up all of our decorations in bubble wrap, all organized and ready for us to take after our wedding. Leading up to our wedding she and Tammy helped us navigate every twist and turn of our planning journey. We were totally clueless and they gave us recommendations for the best vendors who were exactly what we wanted. The day of was so perfect and beautiful! Petra designed our arch and she and Natalie setup all of the decor in the ballroom and it was even better than I ever pictured or imagined. Petra, Tammy, and Natalie were literally fairy godmothers! I felt like a princess all day and can’t believe everything went so smoothly and we had SO much fun!!! I thought about nothing other than marrying the love of my life on my wedding day and it was better than a fairy tale. I wouldn’t hesitate for a second recommending the team at Special Moments for anyone’s wedding planning needs.

Christina and Kiel

I cannot begin to thank Tammy and her team of Dream makers enough! There is not a chance my wedding would have turned out so beautiful without their guidance and attention to detail. Tammy was always just a phone call away and extremely responsive anytime I reached out which was often late at night due to my work schedule! She helped me navigate through vendors, timelines, pricing negotiations you name it! I would truly encourage every Bride who needs a help handing to seek out Tammy! She is one of a kind!
