Where do I begin... Tara at Lotus Events was INCREDIBLE! She is professional, fun, friendly and extremely detail-oriented. She's easy to get ahold of and she's truly an incredible woman. I feel so blessed to have had her as our day-of event coordinator on our wedding day. She made everything go so smoothly and she went above and beyond to make it all so special. I'm so grateful for her expertise and hard work. I don't know how I would've done it without her. I'd highly recommend her to any bride looking for an amazing wedding planner/coordinator in the Austin area. She's amazing and I can't say enough good things about her!

Hiring Tara was the BEST decision we made!

We hired Tara with Lotus Events to help plan our wedding. She is incredible at what she does, and she made our day so perfect! Tara is super professional, yet approachable. We enjoyed meeting with her throughout the planning process. She gave us honest advice to help our vision come to life in the best way. We didn't have to worry about a thing on wedding day because Tara was there running the show. Because of this, we were truly able to enjoy every minute of the wedding day! We are so thankful for her efforts. I'd give more than five stars if I could!!

Amazing Coordinator

Tara Blackwell was an amazing coordinator and made the day run so smoothly. She ran after my bouquet that I left in the bridal suit, she kept everyone on time, she looked after Reba during our reception and even brought us whiskey shots. Amanda and I felt very relaxed during the day as we knew Tara had everything undercontrol.

During the planning phase, Tara was responsive to emails, texts, and calls. She helped make our wedding beautiful as she had suggestions that we did not think of. She is a true professional and is a fantastic coordinator.


Tara is amazing

Approximately 10 months after our wedding, we still get compliments about how beautiful it was and we still rave about Tara. Me and my wife decided that we need a wedding planner because we were extremely busy at work, we are not planners with fair organization skills, and we were ~325 miles away. It was worth it! Tara took care literally of everything in a calm, organized, professional, and friendly-warm way. She guided us through monthly check-ins with everything- picking and communicating with our awesome vendors, vision planning, budget and payment management, rehearsal dinner, and just the overall. We had fun during our wedding, we danced and celebrated all night, and she just took care of everything. We really didn't know if there was a delay and/or any changes, she made sure we were taken care of and everything was so smooth in our point of view. We had the most beautiful memory that we will cherish forever and we give all the credit to her. With that we are forever grateful, she gave us a beautiful wedding. Ohh and she gave us an awesome gift too! She got our wedding pictures featured in a magazine, Brides of Austin. We thought that was so cool! :)

I reached out to Tara for day of coordination services and she explained to me that the coordinator is not only day of but is involved throughout the process of planning to be effective. Right away we hit it off and I trusted her experience and her calm demeanor. She was absolutely right! She took the reigns immediately reaching out to all our vendors and coordinating the sequence of events. My brother had recently gotten married and warned my husband and I that nothing goes as planned on your wedding day. He was absolutely wrong because thanks to Tara we had the funnest and most carefree time which allowed us to fully enjoy and be present on our wedding day. She organized everything so that the flow of a complex event was orchestrated perfectly. I can't possibly say enough great things about Tara. Her personality is also perfect for brides who are ocd like myself because she is such a pleasant, calming force that tells you everything will be ok and it was!! I thought it was a luxury to hire a coordinator but in retrospect I think it's the best and most critical choice you can make and Tara was the best!
