 Tammy Turner really made our wedding an event to remember!  She has great taste and is super knowledgeable on all things wedding.  Throughout the busy planning process, she really helped us stay organized and stick to important deadlines.  On the big day, it was truly amazing to see our vision become a reality.  All the details came together so nicely, from the flowers to the lighting, everything was perfect!  The entire wedding process was wonderful from start to finish and you can tell that Tammy has a passion for wedding and event planing.  I would absolutely recommend Essentially Elegant Events for all of your wedding festivities!  ~Christi Palmertree~

“Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the number of moments that take our breath away!

Mary, we had so much fun with you over the past year of planning! You truly have accomplished all of our visions and dreams. The wedding would not have been the same or nearly as much fun without you! We so appreciate all of your hard work, dedication and talent. The wedding was so beautiful!”   ~ Alicia and Cameron~

What our clients are saying about us

Mary and Tammy, “I can’t even begin to tell you how thankful I am for your extremely hard work, time, support and energy over the past 8 months working to make our wedding more than I could have ever dreamed of! You both made the entire wedding process so fun and stress free! I hope you know that what ya'll do is a ministry. I walked into the church and ballroom in tears because of how perfect EVERY DETAIL was. My fairytale wedding came true and I have Essentially Elegant Events to thank for that! I love ya'll and am so thankful for you!”   ~Patricia~

Where do we start? Mrs. Tammy was amazing! She made sure that everything was in order and that all of our needs were met. Naturally, I had little knowledge of all of the tasks, dates, and deadlines that are associated with a wedding. She made sure that everything was taken care of down the smallest details! She is very honest about what details would and wouldn't look good based off our overall theme or vision for the wedding. Something also very important, when things got super stressful and I just needed a mental break from all things wedding related, Mrs. Tammy stepped in and handled business! If anything went wrong or was delayed on my wedding day, I knew nothing of it! I would definitely recommend their services to ANYONE who wants a smooth moving wedding! Thank you Essentially Elegant Events for making my wedding day nothing short of AMAZING!

My choice to hire Mary Hawkins as my planner for my July 2015 wedding was the best decision ever. She gathered my ideas, captured my vision, and made my big day a "Dream Come True".
