"I wanted to send my thanks for all the work you did in helping me plan my wedding.  Since this was a "destination" wedding for us we had to rely on your expertise of the aea and the vendors.  It was that simple for us...we said what we'd like to have for our special day and your suggestions were right on. Much thanks and appreciation!"

About Us

Taffy Holmes Gonzalez, a distinguished graduate of the prestigious National Association of Bridal Consultants Professional Development Program, is the proud owner of All Traditions. She also has a degree in Journalism from Cal Poly SLO, with a concentration in public relations, and has served on the Central Coast Wedding Professional Board of Directors since April, 2008.

Taffy named her company All Traditions because she enjoys learning about different ethnic and religious cultures. While she likes working with both old and new traditions, she also loves working on "non-traditional" weddings as well.  She feels that every wedding should be personal and special.  She has helped plan many different types of weddings, from Goth to military, new aged to Eastern Orthodox. 

Prior to establishing All Traditions in 2001, Taffy worked as a print production manager at an advertising agency, and as an event planner for the Cal Poly SLO Conference Services Department. These jobs helped to build her strong eye for detail and excellent communication skills. Taffy has taught wedding planning for the San Luis Obispo Coastal Unified School District Adult Education Program and Cuesta Junior College.  She also served as Chair of the American Heart Association Heart Walk and on their Executive Board.

Taffy has experience servicing weddings all along the California Coast in these beautiful cities:  Santa Barbara, Santa Maria, San Luis Obispo, Arroyo Grande, Avila Beach, Pismo Beach, Nipomo, Atascadero, Paso Robles & Templeton.

As a stay-at-home mom working out of her home, Taffy can save you more money as she has less overhead than retail stationery stores.
