Introduction time! 💛
Hi everyone, my name is Tara and I love planning and organizing events.
And I also love my hometown of Beaver Island. So when I finally decided to take the leap to becoming a professional event planner, it only made sense to do it on Beaver Island. The handsome guy next to me is my husband Chuck. He has been right by my side, doing all the dirty work for years now. You might see him on a ladder, driving shuttle, behind the bar or hauling trash. 😊
Nothing makes me happier than seeing people gather to share joy & celebrate life. I love pulling together all the special details to make that happen.
With 6 generations of roots on Beaver Island, I have the knowledge, talent & resources to give you the day you envision. And, my hand picked team of vendors will work just as hard to make sure no detail is overlooked.
Whether it be a family style BBQ, dinner for 2 on your yacht or a wedding on the harbor, let me help make it an event to remember. 💛
