Rachel and Zach

Tammy Waterman was the most amazing wedding planner! We cannot express how grateful we are to have had Tammy’s help. She was so friendly, professional, creative, organized, and thorough! We had a destination wedding and Tammy not only listened to our vision, she also helped us find our venue, motivated us and kept us on track. She was able to help us problem solve and create the wedding of our dreams! Every suggestion of various vendors was right on point and was exactly what we were looking for! She was definitely one of the best decisions we have ever made. Our actual wedding day was flawless; Tammy and her staff ensured that everything ran smoothly the entire time. We really truly feel that Tammy is the BEST wedding planner! We will not do another party without her. She really made all of our dreams for our wedding come true and was careful to stay within our budget!

Tracey and John

The best wedding decision I made was hiring Tammy. She is an amazing person. Her hard work from day one helped me in so many ways. She truly has a passion for job. If you are thinking about a wedding planner, you found your girl! Tammy is a 10/10. Thank you so much for all your help and your support during my planning. I thank you for everything you did! You were awesome!!!!!

Maggie and Beau

Where to start when trying to, in a few words, describe the MOUNTAINS of help, assistance, organization, ideas, and savings that Tammy/Special Moments provided. My venue (The Don Vicente in Ybor) required that I hire a planner– something I hadn’t planned on doing or needing. The Don recommended Tammy, and before deciding on Tammy myself I went home and read all of her reviews- after the first couple I was sold, but read on and they were ALL stellar. I now, myself, have lived through working with Tammy over the course of my own wedding and couldn’t wait (well it has to wait until after the honeymoon) to write a glowing review of my own to help others choose Tammy too!! Tammy is ULTRA responsive (which is huge) she is almost always reachable and when she’s not she returns calls and emails very quickly. Another thing I really valued in Tammy was how giving with her time she was– she was always happy to talk, at length or meet, or conference call with my other vendors- I never felt rushed or like I ever had anything other than her rapt and full attention. My wedding wasn’t huge (about 60 people) but there are a ton of moving dynamics and variables that MUST be considered if you want your big day to go off without a hitch- remember when I said I wasn’t planning on needing/having a planner? Well, my family thought a planner might not be necessary as well, in the beginning…towards the end of the wedding day planning and certainly by the day of grey were all gushing over how instrumental and 110% necessary Tammy was. I couldn’t have been happier with my big day, and credit where credit is due I couldn’t have done it without Tammy (seriously). Tammy was my rock, and my rockstar through the entire process!!!!!!

Nicole and Brian

Tammy and her crew from Special Moments were a godsend! Even though I live only 10 minutes from our wedding venue, I was completely overwhelmed with the process of planning a wedding with my mom living out of state. Tammy truly was a “fill in mom” during the wedding process. She met with us whenever my mom was in town, and took a lot of my moms wedding jitters away too! Tammy took care of things I never even knew existed, and took the stress out of planning our wedding. It was so comforting knowing I could relax and enjoy planning and my big day without pulling my hair out! She knows all the vendors in the area and can recommend the best ones to you (and get you a discount!). Every vendor we spoke to, whether recommended by her or not, had nothing but fabulous things to say about her. She has a reputation in the bridal industry as one of the best planners around, and vendors want to work with her. This is one of the most valuable aspects of having a planner, as your vendors make your wedding, and getting the wrong ones can turn tragic. All of our vendors were recommended by her and absolutely fantastic (check the reviews!). In the wedding industry, vendors work together all the time at various events. When they have a good relationship, your wedding will run so smoothly, so trust her recommendations! If you want to actually enjoy your wedding, and not have overwhelming stress, YOU NEED TO HIRE TAMMY!

Kelli and Brendan

Tammy not only made my wedding beautiful. She made the year leading up to it fun and as anxiety free as I get lol. It was wonderful throwing ideas around with her. Once I knew that nothing was to crazy. She just ran with all my crazy nerdy, geeky, and sci-fi space ideas. She made our Dr. Who themed wedding invites herself and they are one of the most amazing things I had ever seen. I did not cry when I found my dress, but when I saw that invite I cried like a baby. Everything just felt so perfectly us. It was so bizarre having ideas of all these cools these in my head all year of what we were doing for the wedding not really knowing how it would all work. Tammy always knew though and when I walked into our reception room it was beyond my wildest dreams. It was like Tammy plucked it all from my head and put it all in that room for me and my husband.

I would like to add that not only did I get to know the amazing Tammy over this past year, but she matched us up with the most perfect vendors for us. They all made everything flow so well that day and leading up to the wedding. It was all just such an easy process, because of the right people.

Tammy also knows how to keep a couple on a schedule, but not over whelm them. Every few weeks we would get a list of things to work on, and then every couple months phone calls to check in. It was all very calm and gave us time to think out our decisions.

The day of my wedding I was so relaxed and didn’t have a worry in the world

and I know I owe so much of that to Tammy.

 

Nancy and Jeff

Mine was a destination wedding, and Tammy made planning it pretty painless. She is very helpful, works with other amazing vendors, and was quick with suggestions and answers to questions. She is friendly, organized, and turned my vision into reality. My wedding was absolutely perfect!

Lindsey and Phillip

Tammy was absolutely unbelievable in helping to plan my wedding. When I got engaged, I was totally clueless as to where, when, and what I wanted in a wedding. I hired Tammy because of her awesome reviews, and I can honestly say that it was the best decision I ever made. My husband and I have very demanding jobs, and we live about 3 hours away from our wedding venue, so we did not have a lot of time/energy to spend planning. Tammy worked 100% around our schedules and made everything SO easy and stress free for me. I am so indecisive and horrifically disorganized, so she helped me pick colors, venue, flowers, dresses,rehearsal dinner, music & DJ, hair & makeup, ceremony, block room for the guests & so much more (basically EVERYTHING). She has the most creative, awesome ideas that just made the day so unique and special, and everything fit to our personalities exactly. I could NOT have done this without her. She kept 100% within our budget, and I really can’t believe how far she made the budget go! I feel like the wedding seemed much more expensive than what we actually spent. On the day before & day of the wedding, she kept things running extremely smoothly and stress free. Basically, Tammy made my dream wedding come true, with 100x less stress & 100x more fun than I could have ever imagined. I really can’t thank her enough. It was absolutely the most perfect, best day of my life. Thanks, Tammy!!!!!!

Erin and David

Tammy made my backyard look like something out of a fairytale with simple, tasteful and elegant decorations. She helped the big day go off without a hitch and I was able to sit back and enjoy every moment. Hiring her was the best decision I made about the wedding other than marrying my groom! Thanks Tammy!

Marla and Marcus

When we first began planning our wedding, I wasn’t sure if I really needed a wedding consultant. Now I don’t know how I could have done it and made it as amazing without Tammy and the Special Moments team. I had a vision; Tammy realized it and really made come to life. It was everything I wanted – romantic, beautiful, special, one of a kind, and well put together (down to the smallest detail). She has great relationships with vendors and helped me find the ones that were the perfect fit for us. She was there for me every step of the way and flexible with my schedule. I may of had have a couple of breakdowns during the planning, but after a conversation with Tammy, I immediately felt better. I’m not a great decision maker, and she helped ME make those decisions. Even when unexpected events arose on our day, she kept me calm and helped me to concentrate on the big picture – We’re married! She took care of everything and kept me (and all the vendors) on track on our special day and the days leading up to it. Tammy made it so on that day I had absolutely nothing to worry about. She has a great ability to understand people and loves what she does, and it shows. She went above and beyond. Even my mom said Tammy was perfect for me and our wedding, and I couldn’t agree more! There is not enough thanks and praise I can give to them. I would recommend them to every one of my friends.

Thank you Tammy and the Special Moments team!

Tammy is not only my wedding planner, she became my friend. She has planned three weddings for my family to date. If you expect perfection, you need Tammy. She took the time to get to know me. She figured me out. She allowed my vision to come to life. She was patient. She asked the questions that inspired me to think. There is nothing she can’t or won’t do for you. Just ask. When you think something is pushing the envelope, she’ll push it that much more. I can’t thank you enough, Tammy. Here’s to our next big event!
