The BEST coordinator out there!!!!

Tara Blackwell is the absolute BEST wedding coordinator out there! From the moment we booked with Lotus Events we felt immediate peace during the whole planning process. Tara was always available to take my phone calls no matter what time of day and always made us feel like we were her top priority. I loved how confident she was in her abilities and she truly handled everything like a pro! I ended up getting a virus the morning of my wedding and she made sure to take care of me, while also handling literally everything else! She also made sure to check on us often to see if we needed anything at all during the busy reception. The day of the wedding couldn’t have gone more smoothly and it was all because of Tara! If you are in search of a coordinator Tara and Lotus Events is the way to go! I could go on and on about how amazing our wedding day was and I give all the credit to Tara. She truly is the best and is seriously a superhero when it comes to all things wedding. Thanks Tara and Lotus Events for putting everything you have into our big day! We can’t thank you enough.

Let me start by saying if you are scrolling through reviews right now trying to decide on a wedding planner, look no further. Seriously. Just click on the "Message Vendor" button to the right and I guarantee you will have the wedding of your dreams. I know I did and that is all thanks to Tara!! She is absolutely the best wedding coordinator I could have ever asked for. From our initial phone conversation to the last minute of the wedding, she was there for me anytime I needed anything or had a question. She gave us the best advice and was so on top of everything. I can't even begin to imagine what it would have been like planning a wedding without her. She is so enjoyable to work with and helped coordinate a wedding that was beyond perfect! I am so so so thankful to have had her by my side throughout this whole process. She isn't just a wedding coordinator, she is truly a friend. Thank you so much, Tara! ! You are a rockstar!!
