Siegrist - Kristof Wedding

Tunxis Pavilion, Farmington, CT

Taryn was the most amazing wedding planner. She was with us start to finish and I don't know what I would had done without her. She made the whole process of planning a wedding so easy and less stressful. Her creativity and ability to take our vision and help us make the most beautiful wedding was beyond anything I could have ever expected. And knowing I didn't have to worry about anything other than getting ready the morning of the wedding was such a load off my shoulders, so I could enjoy every moment of our special day. I can't say enough about how much Taryn meant to my new husband and myself. If anyone is on the fence about getting a wedding planner.... DO IT, and hire Taryn! You won't be disappointed.

Reis-Castro Wedding

The Portuguese Club, Newington, CT ​

From the beginning, Taryn did an exceptional job. I did not know where to begin, when it came to planning a wedding, let alone decorate for it! She instantly put me at ease and used her decorating expertise to plan a jaw dropping ceremony/reception.
