"I used Wedding Realized for my destination wedding in Anguilla and I must say, I was extremely satisfied with their services. Tarra was very professional and always there to answer all my questions and concerns no matter how many times I called her or emailed her lol! Even when we got to the island she was on top of everything despite being in a foreign surrounding, her warm spirit and calm demeanor really put me at ease during the many times I became a 'frazzled' bride.... Tarra made sure my wedding day was everything I had imagined, and what more could any bride can ask for."
"Tarra, I'm not sure words can express how appreciative we are of all the help you provided to make our day run so smoothly. You have an amazing ability and wish you success in this profession. Your help was priceless...thanks for everything!"
"Tarra was a joy to work with. My wedding was exactly what I wanted it to be, and I owe that in a large part to Tarra. I was planning my wedding from 3,000 miles away, living in Alaska while planning a wedding in Virginia, and on top of that I only gave myself 4 months to make it happen. I turned to Tarra needing some serious help, and she consistently stepped up to the plate. She was always available by phone, and she met with me at least three times prior to the wedding....In three words to describe Tarra's service: ABOVE AND BEYOND. I will be recommending her to any and all people I know getting hitched in the Charlottesville area. Her abilities and willingness made my day exponentially better. Thank you Tarra! We had a blast working with you."
"Tarra went above and beyond what we hired her for. Tarra was supposed to be our day of coordinator, but she was so much more. She helped keep us organized and kept us thinking about the next step. She dealt with all the mishaps from the rental company we used and made the day go smoothly. With all of the set up that was required for our venue she made the best of it and it looked beautiful. She even made a point to come to meetings with the caterer and the venue. Besides that she made her own appointments with them to stay on top of things that we might not have been on top of. She was amazing. She is absolutely worth every penny and more."
"Tarra was extremely helpful to us as we planned our wedding from a distance. Anything I asked her to do got done; emails (of which there were many!) were responded to promptly; and she was totally flexible and adaptable to providing the services we needed. The day of she was onsite taking care of everything - I felt no stress! When our shuttle left without a few guests she took them back to their hotel herself. She was very easy to work with, charged an extremely fair rate, and I'd highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great coordinator!"
"Overall I think it was a fantastic wedding. It was a pretty huge operation with a lot of moving parts, but you coordinated it all so well. Jason and I were really last minute with certain things, hair and make up was late, the fire smoked, it was hot as hell, our bartender bailed, lots of people got really drunk... but you handled all of those curve balls like a pro. The wedding reflected our personalities and everyone had a blast, which was really important to Jason and I...I have only good things to say about you and your team."
"I am so happy Tarra and her team were there for my wedding day, it wouldn't have been the beautiful, stress free day that it was without her. Tarra helped me in the weeks leading up to my wedding day, organizing vendors, creating a schedule and being super responsive to all my random questions and requests. She made great suggestions and helped identify things I hadn't considered. Once she arrived the day of the wedding I didn't have any worries about the set-up, the vendors, the schedule or the ceremony. She and her team led us through every step and made sure everyone was taken care of, I didn't have to worry or think about a thing other than having fun with my guests and enjoying the day. The day ran so smoothly and I heard nothing but great things about Tarra from the other vendors and my family and friends. Thanks to Tarra and her team, the day couldn't have gone any better!"
"I cannot say enough about how helpful and wonderful it was to work with Tarra Morgan. She was professional from day one and helped me along the way with anything that I was struggling with and any ideas/suggestions that I asked her for as well as getting me in touch with vendors when I needed them! For the rehearsal and the ceremony, she did a spectacular job and I heard so many comments from the groomsmen about how they felt like she and her assistant paid so much attention to them as well. My parents were extremely impressed and grateful to have her around. Tarra handled everything the day of which allowed me to truly enjoy the moment and the day with no stress so I couldn't ask for more than that...The wedding day turned out to be perfect and this was in no small part due to Tarra's passion for the business, support, and help along the way. I could not have chosen a better coordinator!!"
"I was planning my wedding from afar so I did not get to meet Tarra until a couple weeks before our wedding; but, from the very moment I started communicating with her I knew she was the person I wanted in charge of executing my vision. Tarra is very professional, organized, and has a passion for what she does. She is easy to work with and I could not be any happier with her work. I am so glad Tarra was part of my vendor team because her presence was pivotal. So many things out of her control went wrong; however, she handled them like the champ that she is...She is truly dedicated and will go above and beyond to ensure that your day is beautiful. It was an honor and I am blessed to have had an opportunity to work with her."
"We cannot rave enough about Tarra and her team at Wedding Realized! We hired her for day-of wedding coordination on a very limited budget and Tarra was able to put together a package that worked for us at a price we could afford. She absolutely went above and beyond what we expected...She referred us to a fantastic caterer who we ended up hiring, gave suggestions for ways to make the set-up process run smoothly, ran our rehearsal, and even dealt with some challenging family members in a professional and respectful way. Our wedding day was so perfect and stress-free because we knew Tarra and her assistant were handling everything so that we didn't have to. We would without a doubt recommend Wedding Realized to anyone who wants wedding planning or day-of coordination from a team who will ensure an amazing wedding day!"
"I hired Tarra to be our day-of wedding coordinator after speaking with a few other coordinators in the area. Tarra stood out to me for a few reasons: 1 - she was very responsive to my initial emails; 2 - her personality was great (friendly, flexible, professional, and organized); 3 - I feel her price was fair but also a great deal for what we got from her. I was in the process of planning our wedding in Virginia while living in Hawaii, and everything was moving so slowly. I hired Tarra, and she helped me find a florist, hair/makeup artist, develop a day-of timeline, and stay organized in general. We had a late morning ceremony, followed by a brunch reception, and a cocktail party in the evening. Tarra was there for us from 7:30am until 10pm. She basically ran the day for us - we just showed up when and where we needed to, and had a great time with everyone! As someone who was very happy with just eloping, Tarra helped so much more than I could have ever imagined (and thought I needed), and she made our wedding to be something I enjoyed so much more than I ever thought I would. I would recommend Tarra to anyone, without hesitation. "
"Shane and I can not thank you enough for how amazing you were yesterday. Having you there made everything so smooth and relaxed for us. You are incredible at your job and we can see why you are so highly recommended...Thank you again, Tarra. You are awesome!"
"Tarra consistently went above and beyond to ensure our rehearsal and wedding hit no snags. Calm, flexible and organized Ms. Morgan allowed both the bride and groom to fully enjoy their time with family and friends. We would recommend Tarra to every couple.

"Tarra, we were so happy with your work and efforts to make our wedding a spectacular night. In many ways you went beyond our expectations. To begin with, you answered our many questions before the big day, in a timely matter (as in immediately). Your attendance of the rehearsal was not expected but very much appreciated (and needed). Your surprise appearance at the last minute rehearsal put the bride at ease for the next 24hours. You were on sight the day of waiting before us...you were early while we were late. You nudged the bride gently but firmly toward her deadlines (day of schedule, photos), and you helped us finish all of our diy projects so that we could enjoy ourselves. Lastly, you cleaned up as the event progressed so that we could go home 30 mins after our diy wedding ended. With our muscles and your direction we all got to bed sooner than I expected."
"Leah and I are still floating on cloud 9. Our wedding was amazing and we will remember it forever. We could not have done it without you! Your calm, cool, collected and get it done attitude made the planning and execution go smoothly. Thank you! Thank You!"
As the groom, I had my reservations about whether we needed someone to handle day-of-coordination. My intended felt that we did need someone, and having met with Tarra first, insisted that we all sit down together. I could not be happier to say that I was absolutely wrong! In the weeks leading up to the wedding she provided valuable advice and feedback, above and beyond what we had expected. Not only was Tarra a welcome part of our wedding celebration, but the piece-of-mind, attention to detail and professionalism that she provided made everything work perfectly. My bride-to-be had developed a particular vision over the course of our wedding planning, and Tarra helped make it become a wonderfully choreographed reality. Her presence and assistance on our wedding day was invaluable. We would be happy to recommend her to anyone without any reservations!
Tarra was absolutely amazing and definitely the best decision we made for our wedding day. We worked with Tarra as a day-of-coordinator, but she was so much more. Tarra helped us the months leading up to the wedding with finalizing vendors, reviewing contracts, and making sure we had everything we needed for our day. She also came to facilitate our rehearsal and spent the entire day with us on Saturday, making sure we had everything we needed. Several snafus came up and Tarra stepped right in and handled everything (checks for vendors, downloading son/mother dance song minutes beforehand because we had forgotten). Her super calm demeanor made me and my husband feel so at ease and we knew she could handle anything that came up. I would highly recommend Tarra to anyone planning a wedding whether you need a full time or day-of coordinator.
We hired Tarra for "day of" coordination, but she does so much more than just "day of". She was absolutely amazing and helped us with so much!! When you do most of your wedding planning yourself, it is hard to imagine someone else being able to come in at the end and understand your vision for the day and get it just right. Tarra was able to do that perfectly and the wedding was not only beautiful, but completely stress-free. I did not have to worry about anything! She went above and beyond and even drove some of my family back to the hotel (30 minutes away) when they missed the bus!! Thank you so much!! The day was amazing and couldn't have gone any better!
We are more than pleased with the way everything turned out. Sarah did such an amazing job dealing with the storm and making sure everything was taken care of. We really can't thank her enough. Our families and several guests also commented on how impressed they were with Sarah's organization and her ability to manage all of the unexpected things that came up that day. Thank you for all of your hard work as well with all of the organization and preparation before the wedding and confirming/coordinating with all of our vendors! We are so glad we were able to work with you and Sarah.
We hired Tarra and Sarah to help us day-of with our wedding and I could not have been happier to have Sarah there. She made a wedding that became very time-limited (it stormed all afternoon making the ceremony begin late, guests having to stay inside the building for longer, etc…) run so smoothly! I am so appreciative of how she took our unfinished and unorganized details and made everything work! She was so attentive to details and to us. Sarah has a great personality and is very calm and able to adapt easily to changes (potentially moving ceremony indoors last minute, etc.), she is also very flexible during the planning stages on talking at times that area convenient for everyone. Thank you, Wedding Realized!
