Testimonials

The best part of our job is the great couples and their families we meet and get to know… Here are some of our favorite Testimonials we’ve received from our couples over the years!

Melissa & Harry

Tammy and her team are completely amazing! They make you feel at ease asking a million questions! They always remained patient and helpful through the entire process. The day of the entire team was quick to help and make sure the day was perfect! Would highly recommend!

Nicole – Bride

Tammy was so awesome! She was very responsive and handled all the paperwork necessary from our vendors. She helped re-create my Pinterest vision board (and then suggested I stay off Pinterest, haha) – it was even more magical than I could imagine. The day of the wedding was so smooth; she made sure I was well taken care of and made sure we were all comfortable. She kept us on time and gave great tips to the bridal party when it came time to walk in to the ceremony. Our florist mistakenly left our two boutonnières for the fathers and Tammy saved the day and offered to put something together for them using an extra bouquet we received. They looked like they were made by the florist herself! It was just perfect! Thank you so much Tammy!

Brooks – Groom

My wife and I live in Fort Worth and chose to get married in Clearwater close to my family in Tampa. I could write an essay about how clutch Tammy was, but I think a few of the highlights will help you get the picture:
1.) Tammy is a wedding detail genius whose primary goal is to help figure out stuff you don’t / can’t figure out for yourself, and do come up with better solutions than you could. My wife is a doctor with insane hours, I work long hours as well, and we were remote, so this was huge. If you’re the type of person that has the time to figure out every last detail, great – Tammy will hustle to handle all administrative and organizational tasks. If you (like us) don’t care to figure out and own every little last detail, Tammy is even more amazing.
2.) Every vendor automatically likes you better when they learn you’re working with Tammy. Don’t underestimate this. In the wedding universe of emotionally charged bridezillas and groomzillas, vendors will be relieved to know they are working with someone like Tammy who will at least have your act together for you. It’s makes you easier to deal with in their eyes, they they treat you better as a result.
3.) I was willing to accept and fully expected that we would forget something, that some little or medium-sized consideration would be overlooked, and my wife and I were at peace with this fact of life. Well, in truth we would have missed 6,174 little things, 257 medium-sized things, and 1 or 2 big things without Tammy. Because we had Tammy — I am not exaggerating here — every last thing was handled. My wife and I could not think of a single detail that got missed, and it’s because Tammy is a hustler and awesome person.
4.) Tammy is cool and should charge 5x what she charges. She has personality, spunk, and doesn’t beat around the bush (which was awesome for me).

Tammy was the absolute perfect option for what we were looking for. Hire her – you won’t regret it.

Shannon & Justin

Special Moments exceeded our expectations from the very beginning. Hiring Special Moments as our wedding planner was hands down the best decision we made. Tammy and her team go above and beyond throughout the whole planning process and execution of the wedding day. Tammy thought of things that we would have missed and saved us money and time along the way. They helped to plan the perfect destination wedding for us. We thought that planning and corresponding from Canada would be difficult but she made it seem stress free! The vendors that she recommended were professional, within our budget and the perfect fit. Special Moments took all my emails, phone calls and ideas and turned it into a reality of our dream wedding!! We would whole heartedly recommend Special Moments to anyone.

Danielle & Ian

Detail oriented!

Tammy and her team were great to work with. Always fast to respond to emails. Extremely detail oriented. I used them as my day of coordinator and they helped everything go smoothly. Even before the wedding they were very helpful with recommendations. I also rented items from them which made things super easy. Shauna was my day of coordinator and she was GREAT!

MaryEllen & Kenny

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!!

Vanessa and Ivan

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!

Christine and Chris

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:)
