Applause from our Brides & Grooms
"Our florist put us in contact to help coordinate our wedding on 10/18/14. We used her services for day-of planning, and I am so glad we did. Taffy was incredibly friendly and professional throughout the entire process. Though I only needed her services for the day before (rehearsal) and the day of our wedding, she was so helpful with any question or concerns I had along the way. Always quick to respond or make helpful suggestions. It's really a necessity to use a coordinator for a wedding. There are SO MANY behind the scene details that no one sees. There is so much fine print in contracts. And you really need a voice that will be heard and a person to oversee it all so that you and your guests can thoroughly enjoy your day. Taffy did it all that. There is no way my wedding could have gone as smooth as it did without her. I highly recommend Taffy!"
"Taffy was just what I needed on the day of my daughter's wedding. She was there every time I turned around and took care of all the large and small details. It was such a relief to have her there. She was always prompt and kept in touch with me prior to the big day. I was lucky to have found her!"
Linda (Holly's Mom)
"Taffy is an exceptional wedding
coordinator! Everything about our day
turned out better than we'd planned, and
she was a big part of this. Taffy thought
of every single detail and was helpful and
flexible throughout the planning process."
"Once again thanks so much for such a
great job. Your positive attitude and
infectious enthusiasm had quite an impact
on the wedding. Not to mention your
flexibility and attention to details.
Thanks so much."
Sarah (Shawna's mom)
"I just wanted to thank you for last
weekend. We had the time of our lives
and we owe a great portion of that to
our wedding coordinator. I thought the
wedding was flawless. The attention to
detail was unbelievable and the wedding
went without a hitch...even the red wine
stain on Shawna's dress that you had
removed in minutes. You do a great job
in these venues, especially when nerves
can be flowing. Everyone I talked to
said it was the best wedding they ever
attended -- and my daughter Shawna lit
up the room with delight and unbridled
happiness....thank you thank you thank
Pat (Shawna's Dad)
"Thank you so much for all your attention and hard work to help make our dream wedding. Matt and I couldn't have been more happy. For us, it was just perfect. I know it was very specific with the look and feeling I wanted and I appreciate all your patience. It was gorgeous. All of our guests had an amazing experience and it was a weekend to remember."
Breanne and Matthew
"Taffy was a huge help in planning my
wedding and was absolutely amazing! We
hired her for the month of planning and
I'm so glad we did. She covered every
detail and coordinated with all the
other vendors. I could not have done it
without her! She made sure everything
was taken care of and everything ran
smoothly. We did not have a single
issue, everything was perfect!"
"I absolutely LOVE Taffy. I hired her a
month or so before the wedding. It was
the BEST thing I ever did! She is awesome! She helped me talk through
every detail of the wedding. Questions I didn't even know to ask, she handled.
She coordinated with my DJ, my officiate, the caterer, the
photographer, and my flower lady. At the reception she would quickly give me time updates and offer suggestions, but
always left the decision up to me. We
had the perfect wedding. It was perfect. My fiancé said we didn't need her when I first hired her. At the end of the night as we drove away he looked at me and said, "That Taffy lady was great....she had everything handled. I'm so happy we had her" (true story!). I wholeheartedly recommend Taffy!"
"I hope you are doing well! I just wanted
to make sure that you saw the wedding blog
feature! Thank you for all your help! It
definitely could not have been done
Taylor & Garry
"Thanks to Taffy, All Traditions, I am a new woman! Wow! I was most impressed with her ability to remember absolutely every tiny detail that mattered to my Son and his beautiful Bride. She was flawless during the ceremony and reception. The ceremony & reception as a result were flawless. Down to the perfectly timed sunset!"
Peggy (Garry's Mom)
"We just wanted to send a quick thank you
for everything you did with the wedding.
It was amazing and we had such a wonderful
time. We know everyone had such a great
time as well. We still almost can't
believe that the whole thing happened!"
Lauren and Andres
"We live down in LA so it was great to
have Taffy's expertise and input as a
local vendor when we were trying to put
our SLO wedding together. We also used
her for hourly planning services. Taffy
was always very responsive and detailed
in our communication back and forth.
Taffy proved to be very adaptable and
totally adept at handling situations
that came up. She's a great problem
solver and made our wedding feel
effortless. If you're looking for
someone who's warm and communicative,
who's really going to pay attention to
details, who'll prioritize helping you
create the kind of event you want to
have and who'll also be able to pull the
strings behind the curtain if she needs
to without any of the party guests
noticing that anything's amiss, look no
further than All Traditions."
"I live out of state so it was important that I have a planner who had great connections with local vendors. Taffy is that person! She had great relationships with all of vendors and that made for a smooth event. Taffy was always willing to go above and beyond including helping load up our van after the reception. She pays attention to every detail so the bride cannot worry about anything and just enjoy the day! I highly recommend Taffy and All Traditions to every central coast bride! Thanks Taffy!!"
"The day couldn't have gone more
perfectly and I really appreciated the
extra focused attention you gave Lynn
and I to make sure we would be able to
take it all in. We ACTUALLY ate the
food and ACTUALLY had some cake yet we
still managed to connect with nearly all
of our guests, take a deep breath and
enjoy it all. The day was a perfect
vision of what we hoped it would be for
our friends and family. Best part is,
for as much as a wedding is focused on
the bride and groom, I really felt it
wasn't all about us, it was about the
shared experience. That's what I was
hoping for, I feel that's what we got."
Lynn and Evan
"You played a huge role to make our wedding so special! It was really amazing! I can't say thank you enough!! It was so perfect!! Special thanks to Taffy for running it all, I didn't worry or stress once! It truly looked spectacular! People were saying it was the BEST wedding ever! Thank you again!"
"Taffy was wonderful! She had amazing ideas but really stuck to exactly what I wanted, and it was amazing! She was easy to get ahold of and open to my thoughts! She took care of everything day of, I didn't even feel like I needed to worry about anything! Thank you, we couldn't be happier!!"
"Taffy is a true professional. She is aware of all of the minutiae of planning an event. She is incredibly detail oriented, efficient, and her fine-tuned timetable for deadlines is probably one of the main reasons her events turns out so well. She is accessible and great at communicating either on the phone or by email. She was with us at the rehearsal and all day long on the day of the wedding. Plus, Taffy is fun and a delight to be with. Thank you, Taffy for one memorable and incredible wedding!"
Sandie (Mother of the Bride)
"Taffy did a wonderful job coordinating our wedding. We don't live in the area, so it was important for us to have someone who knew all of the vendors, had worked with them before, and could help us with the details that made the day so special. She was easy to get a hold of, responded promptly, and took away a lot of the worries and issues we would have had to deal with otherwise. High recommended!"
"Thanks for all of your hard work on Megan's wedding, we all enjoyed the day, and I keep getting compliments on how nice everything was!"
Kathy (Megan's Mom)
"We are so grateful to Taffy for
planning our wedding! She found us the
most amazing, professional vendors. She
understood what our vision was, and it
turned out better than we ever imagined!
Our guests are still talking about how
personal and fun our wedding was! Thank
Megan and Eric
"Taffy ROCKS! To put it simply, I could not have put my wedding together without her. We were married at the Cayucos Creek Barn, a 100% DIY venue...and as fun as that is (e.g. you get to select absolutely everything you want) it is a HUGE responsibility and commitment. While we were excited having all the freedom, we also really needed guidance and direction on how it would all come together. Taffy was invaluable. We hired her for the day of and used her on an hourly basis for everything else we needed advice on, which was very helpful. She is also the best combination of sweet yet assertive. For instance, when I wanted to do my own flowers, she quickly put a stop to it, telling me it was a stupid idea (but in a very polite way). And the day of, she knew when to crack the whip and get people in gear (but again in an assertive, polite way). And in the end, I can honestly say that I had more fun than I've ever had in my entire life - yes that is what I'm supposed to say, but it's really true. Our day went absolutely perfectly and Taffy had A LOT to do with it!"
"My husband and I were planning our Central Coast wedding from LA, and we couldn't have done it without Taffy. Taffy took care of details we would have never thought of. She anticipated so many things that made our event go smoothly and beautifully, and she was such a joy and a comfort to have at the rehearsal and the day of the wedding. She is awesome, and I would highly recommend her to ANY bride - she is worth EVERY penny of her contract."
"I must ditto all of the raves by previous clients. Having been the "event specialist" myself for many years, I was wise enough to know that even another "pro" shouldn't do it all at her own daughter's wedding and expect to enjoy it too. Taffy was able to execute all of our non-traditional wishes in a most professional manner. The wedding party and all of the guests had a fun and relaxed evening. My husband and I, along with the Groom's parents merely had to show up to enjoy the moment. Best of all, the Bride and Groom were thrilled beyond expectations. Even if you think you will remember everything that needs to be done, Taffy will come up with the things you will forget in your excitement! If we ever have the pleasure of hosting another out-of-town event in Taffy's territory, we will surely start with a call to All Traditions!"
Terri (Danica's Mom)
"Thank you for helping us have the best day possible! We appreciate all the work you put in. Hope you had as much fun as we all did."
Mike & Gail
"Ten thousand thanks! The day, its
success and our memories are all for
your efforts...we are indebted. You
really helped us with all those small
details that keeps us on track as far as
planning goes which no doubt was
instrumental in such a successful event.
Just wanted to say thank you from both
Maureen and Glenn
"Last night was the most amazing night of our lives. It would not have been the same without you!!! Thank you for everything! I will recommend you to every single bride I meet! You are a joy and a pleasure to work with!!! THANK YOU!!!"
Leigh and John
"The #1 advice I give to my friends who
are planning their weddings is to hire a
wedding coordinator, because Taffy took
all the stress of my wedding day off me
and my family. She took our visions and
made them a reality, and our wedding day
turned out better than I could have ever
imagined. She went above and beyond at
personalizing our wedding, and was
available whenever I needed to ask her
advice. Thank you Taffy for making our
wedding planning experience exciting and
"I am the father of the bride. My daughter Jaleen got married in August and having this much time to reflect on the venue and All Traditions, who not only planned and coordinated the wedding, but also found the fantastic venue where Jaleen and Russell were married. I want to say that as you are planning a wedding, please talk to Taffy before you do anything else!!! Usually when you reflect on an event and what you remember and what you got for your budget, you aren't quite as excited as you were right after the event. Today I am still extremely happy with EVERYTHING Taffy at All Traditions did for us and how much her expertise made this event that is dearer as days go by. Thank you Taffy!!!"
Rick (Jaleen's Dad)
"Taffy is amazing! She helped me plan a wedding while I was out of the country and everything went beautifully and looked beautiful! I cannot speak highly enough of her services! She is a problem solver and very organized! If you need a wedding planner, you must have Taffy and All Traditions!"
Maggie and Bryan
"Kirk & I want to thank each and every one of you for the incredible event you produced yesterday. Our guests raved and raved and raved about every last detail! The venue was spectacular, the food unforgettable, the decor simply stunning...can't wait to see what it all looked like on camera! We will forever remember what has been the best night in both of our lives."
our warmest gratitude,
Kirk & Kacy
Kacy and Kirk
"Thank you for the fantastic job you did
on our wedding. People continue to tell
us that it was perfectly organized and
executed. Also thanks for your
flexibility, planning, enthusiasm, and
for pulling off the Montana de Oro
Ceremony, activities and beautiful
reception. We hope you and your family
enjoy the holidays."
Amy and Ward
"I was planning my wedding in Paso Robles, but lived in San Francisco and Taffy was just the perfect person for my big day. She is very professional, very experienced and knows the areas and the vendors well. She was able to help me out with however much or little I wanted, was extremely responsive and did a great job. In the end, we had a beautiful wedding- the perfect wedding I was hoping for! I'd absolutely recommend Taffy to anyone who needs extra help with the planning."
"Taffy was wonderful! We live across the country and didn't know who to call or what to even do. She provided us with many vendors as well as ask us questions that we had never thought about previously. She was well prepared as well. Our shuttles were very late and one didn't even show up until the end and she was right on top of it. Neither the groom nor myself even knew about this until after the wedding. She knew what order the reception should go in and even made sure people were respectful of us and our traditions. Highly recommended and worth the money. We were not stressed one bit because of Taffy."
"We are so pleased that everything with our son and new daughter-in-law's wedding went so smoothly and that it was such a beautiful day filled with forever memories for them. A million thanks for all your help and guidance these past few months as we prepared for the wedding. We couldn't have had such a wonderful wedding without you. It was a pleasure working with you."
"Thanks!!! The linens were AMAZING!!!! Everything just came together so nicely. Thank you again for all your help!!! Without you, none of it could have been possible. Thanks again!"
"Hiring Taffy was the best money spent on our wedding! The months before, the week of and the day of were a complete success and it was primarily due to Taffy's hard work and coordination. All of her experience really helped my husband and I feel comfortable that everything was going to flow together and she made sure it did just that. She was an absolute pleasure to work with. Her polite, professional, and sweet personality made our family and friends feel very comfortable right away. We loved working with her and highly recommend her for your special day!"
"Thank you so much for everything you did for our wedding!! Everything turned out perfectly. I have had so many comments from people on how beautiful everything looked and how it was one of the best weddings they ever attended. I couldn't have done it without your help. Thank you again and will be in touch soon."
"Taffy was extraordinary! I cannot begin to praise her enough, she was so on task in the planning stages of the wedding, not to mention the day of the wedding. On the wedding day, she handled all issues -- and seemed to be in 5 places at one time. Taffy made the day go smoothly, and made sure that I didn't have to worry about anything more than walking down the aisle, and having a great time at my own wedding. I would recommend her MOST highly to couples who want a carefree day. Taffy was on top of everything, and I can't imagine it without her."
"I can't begin to thank you enough for the magnificent job you did for our daughter Kate's wedding. Because of your exquisite planning, as the mother of the bride, I was able to totally focus on my daughter and my family and friends on the happiest day of a parent's life. THAT was the biggest gift I could give myself. I was completely confident in your ability to handle all the details, and you far exceeded my expectations. Your organized approach enabled me to take care of everything that I needed to do prior to Kate and Marcus' wedding and so I was enjoying every minute along with the family and guests! You are a great person and completely fabulous at what you do! Thank you, thank you again!"
Mary Lou (Kate's Mom)
"Thank you for all of your help Taffy. It turned out to be an amazing day! I wouldn't have changed a thing!
"Thanks for all that you have done to make the wedding festivities so successful! We had a blast! Hugs and keep in touch!"
Kass (Sara's Mom)
"Thank you so much for pulling this together. It was awesome. Great job! I could not have done the "put it all together part" without you. Thank you so much for doing that, for making it really work and really nice. The ceremony went so smoothly as did the reception. Yours is not an easy profession dealing with brides (especially today's brides) but you are very gracious. Thank you. I hope our paths will cross again."
Andy & Becky(Christina's Dad & Step Mom)
"Thank you for everything you did to make our wedding day so special & so memorable. All of the little details came together perfectly to make a day we will never forget!"
Dave & Nicole
"Thank you for everything. You really got a workout at the wedding. We were so very pleased with your work. We couldn't have done it without you. It was truly a perfect wedding. You were a fantastic help, without which nothing would have been possible."
"You're a great find - thanks so much for superb job! I could not imagine doing this on my own. You really helped make this a special day for us."
Susan & Harry
"Jonathan and I want to thank you again for the incredible job you did. At the beginning of planning the wedding I was thinking to myself, I'm not sure I need a wedding planner. I will now say, there is no way I could have done this without you. Your service was worth paying the extra money. YOU helped make our day even more special. You paid attention to every detail during the planning and on the wedding day. You understood exactly the style wedding we wanted and helped find us vendors that could compliment that style. We really feel you went above and beyond for us and most importantly, you kept me sane during the entire process. When people ask me how the wedding was, I tell them that it was perfect, that nothing went wrong. That perfect day was because of all of your hard work. I can't even thank you enough."
"Thanks to you our wedding was everything I dreamt it would be. I appreciated your eye for detail & how you kept me organized. You pulled it off & I thank you. I will recommend you whenever I can. Keep up the good work."
"Thank you so much. Hope you enjoyed our wedding as we couldn't have done it without you."
David & Colleen
"Thank you so much for all of your help
with our wedding. Your expertise helped
us to have a wonderful day that we will
DeAna & Rob
"I can't thank you enough for all you brought to this happy occasion, and I am so grateful that DeAna found you!!! You are one of a kind, and I am so grateful for all you did to make this wedding a success! Much love to you and your family!"
Bernie (DeAna's Mom)
"I just wanted to say thank you so much
for all that you did to make our day
special. We had a great time. People are
still calling us to say how much fun they
had and how beautiful everything was. So
again, thank you!"
"I just wanted to thank you so much for
taking care of us on our special day. I
wish we could have had you help plan the
whole event! You helped everything
about our day flow with ease, and the
best part about it, was I was able to
relax and enjoy my day. All of my
bridesmaids were so impressed with how
calm I was, and can honestly say that
you had a lot to do with my composure.
My (now) husband Travis, was also very
impressed with you. When I first
brought up the idea of a wedding
coordinator, he thought it might be a
little excessive for our budget.
However, after the wedding, he told me
how happy he was you were there. I also
wanted to thank you for coordinating my
bouquet preservation. Thanks again!"
"What a delight it was to work with you! Thank you for keeping us on track...and budget! That was absolutely the wedding of our dreams! Thank you for making it go so smoothly. Thank you for all of the hard work you did to make our wedding magnificent."
"Taffy is an outstanding wedding planner. I was able to plan the wedding of my dreams from 250 miles away because of Taffy's keen skills. I always thought I would be overwhelmed with details the day I married, but because of Taffy my husband and I often re-count many enjoyable moments with ease. She is one-of-a-kind...BOOK HER EARLY!!!!!!!!"
Jim & Tamara
"The wedding turned out wonderful! You did an amazing job of making sure everything ran smoothly. I really appreciated all of your hard work and planning to put on our wedding! Thank you so much for everything you did...I could not have asked for anything more. Both Aaron and I just couldn't have been happier with how the wedding turned out."
"Thank you for all of your expertise. I could not have done it without you. Did we do good??!!!! I was so pleased. The phone calls, emails, letters just keep pouring in. Everyone was so impressed and had a great time."
Kelly (Katie's Mom)
"We hope that you enjoyed playing a part in our wedding as much as we enjoyed having your help! You did a wonderful job and our wedding really was perfect. Thanks so much."
John & Jennae
"Thanks so much for absolutely everything. We couldn't have done it without you."
Gavin & Diana (Jennae's Parents)
"Raymond and I cannot thank you enough for the outstanding job that you did, that ended up in a beautiful wedding in the vineyards. You were so efficient that even the photographer complimented you on your work. It was fun planning everything with you and most of all you kept us within our budget."
"Thank you for the outstanding job you did on our wedding. Your amazing ability to coordinate all of the activities, vendors and us in a calm and efficient manner was so welcome and contributed greatly to our joyous occasion. Thank you again for a wonderful job done."
Nancy (Rae's Mom)
"Thank you Thank you Thank you to Taffy of All Traditions for the invitations, and for coordinating everything with inimitable style, organizational skill and diplomacy. I had no idea what a huge difference it makes to have a professional coordinator. It was such a relief to not have to answer hundreds of questions of what to do or how to do it while I was trying to relax the butterflies in my stomach, enjoy my hair and make-up process and have a very few special moments with my daughter prior to the ceremony. Taffy just handled it all."
"Thank you! You made the wedding go without a hitch. And you made it seem effortless, which is the mark of a true professional. I felt so stress-free that day! It really helped me survive when you took over all the last-minute details. Not sure if I could have handled it! Both Greg and I appreciate all the hard work you did."
We especially appreciate the crucial role you played in making it all happen so well and wonderfully. When we first e-mailed you, we didn't think we even needed a wedding coordinator. In hindsight, how naive it was for us to even have entertained the notion. As promised, you took on so many of the logistical aspects for the wedding. We marveled at your ability to keep one eye on the thousands of details, and the other on the "big picture". Your regular reviews and updates were particularly helpful. It seems like nothing fell between the cracks. When we needed resources, you produced a wonderful array of people to draw upon. Like you, they were wonderful, enthusiastic, and creative professionals. The combined efforts of your people made the process a really pleasant experience! You continually exceeded our expectations and enabled us to enjoy our families and friends throughout all events of the day. Your professionalism helped create a day that continually generates a pleasant memory and still draws such heartfelt comments from our guests. We were very fortunate to have you and always will remember how you helped make our ceremony a truly perfect day. We hope it is sufficient to say we couldn't give anyone a higher recommendation."
Marcey & Mike Byrd
"What a beautiful day! You were great! Your professionalism, patience, encouragement, and cooperation with the other vendors made the day go smoothly. I was so impressed with your continuous communication with everyone involved. You were an essential asset."
"Let me tell you how grateful Todd and I are for all of your help at our wedding. It would not have gone so smoothly as it did without you there. I received soooo many compliments from our guests and family members on how nice you were and what a great job you did. I'm so happy you were a part of our very special day. There's just no way that all of the wonderful things we had planned for the day would have occurred if it were up to us to get them done."
"I met Taffy after a very frustrating search for wedding invitations. She immediately figured out what I was searching for and made me at ease with her professionalism and willingness to work with me to create the invitations I wanted. She called the printer several times to confirm that the invitations would be right, helping us avoid time-consuming reprints. The invitations arrived exactly when she said, and they were perfect."
"Thank you for being a huge part of this special day! We have enjoyed your hard work and service! You are at the top of our recommendation list!"
Julie and Aaron
"The kids and I want to thank you for a job well done. We all know how stressful planning a wedding can be, but with you on our side, you made it fun and took most of the stress away. You were there every step of the way with great ideas - so thank you"
"Thank you for everything you did for us and our wedding! We could never have done it without you. You lifted our stress from us like a ton of bricks being removed from our shoulders. From your little black magic bag to your last minute garter delivery. We definitely needed you! Thank you again"
Jen & Donni
"Thank you so much for all your help. We felt you did a really good job. Thanks a million."
"I don't know how to thank you for the wonderful help with last weekend. Everyone had a good time and it went very smoothly. I was so glad to have you at the castle and on the trolley. Thank you again."
"The wedding turned out just perfect, thanks to your great coordination and choreography! I can't remember how many people commented how smoothly everything went, even with the quick changes you enacted because of the rain! All of us are immensely grateful for what you did! We have many, many happy memories from this unusual, momentous event."
Ann (Julie's Mom)
"Taffy is amazing. For any bride who does not yet have a wedding coordinator, do not pass up this opportunity to hire her for her coordinating services. Taffy takes away the stress. She went above and beyond to make sure everything was in order. She is sweet, firm, organized, and makes sure the bride gets everything she wants. I wouldn’t have enjoyed my wedding day as much without her assistance."
"It was a real pleasure to work with you, and you did a wonderful job for us. You are both extremely personable and professional, and we would be pleased to recommend you in the future. We wish you all the best, and thank you again!"
Steve & Emily
"John and I just celebrated our 3 year
wedding anniversary!!! We actually
spent the weekend in PASO at a dear
friend's wedding at Corad vineyards. I
wanted to reach out to you, because we
spent the ENTIRE weekend talking about
how amazing our wedding was. And we
really decided it was a collaboration
of an amazing venue, a lovely setting, a WONDERFUL food with chef Charlie, and
YOUR AMAZING day of coordination. You
made my wedding perfect, seamless,
effortless. People still tell us OFTEN
how great our wedding was. You are
truly a genius and I just wanted to
thank you. I wish I was planning
another event soon so that I could use
your amazing services again soon...and
if anyone crosses my path, I will
recommend you!! Is there a website you
use to post reviews? Because I would
like to send you one!!"
