Often, the vision of a wedding is driven by the couple. Occasionally, parents are involved, and though that might make some planners cringe at the notion, for Sydney and Jason’s wedding, the collaboration was welcomed by Tan Weddings & Events. It was clear from the start that the bride’s parents genuinely cared about the scope and the aesthetics of their daughter’s wedding and enjoyed being a part of the process just as much as the couple!
This is where the experience of planners like Tan Weddings & Events is essential - they possess a balance of diplomacy and decisiveness, of collaboration and curating. They scheduled a series of meetings online and in person to discuss priorities and expectations, they met at various showrooms to see and touch the place settings and linens, they visited the venue with the family to visualize the flow - where guests would be lining up for the bar, where they would dance, dine, and enjoy the vineyard views.
TWE assembled a top notch team to orchestrate a three-day event with a welcome soiree, wedding day and after party, and farewell brunch. The tablescape, for instance, to achieve effortless elegance, required the masterful blend of Theoni tables and place settings, BBJ La Tavola linens, Shimmer & Stain menus, and Flourish floral arrangements. The wedding weekend allowed for all their friends and family to fully enjoy the wine country region, to spend time with each other, to celebrate togetherness. The couple chose B.R. Cohn Winery to host their main event because of its "relaxed vibe, but it was also still elegant and beautiful. It definitely reminded us of our relationship and we are excited to go back and visit!" as the bride, Sydney, recalls fondly. As the couple would say their main priority was to "not have to worry about things on the day of" and could relax "knowing everything was taken care of!"
The experience for the couple and the parents was of joy and gratitude. When asked what was their favorite part, we were met with their joyful answer of, "Everything! We seriously loved every minute." In fact, parents Kendra and Dan hired TWE for their other daughter’s wedding in Arizona later this year!
