Beginning with a Hospitality & Event Planning Degree, circa 1993 from Johnson & Wales University, Tammy has been in the industry for twenty-years. Her career has stretched from Vail, CO to New York City, through Europe and South America and eventually led her to the bucolic and most inspiring Hudson River Valley.
In the past Tammy was owner, lead planner and designer of a successful Wedding Planning firm that specialized in orchestrating high logistic, high end weddings only at unique venues throughout the Hudson Valley. Tammy was constantly diving into her family’s barn in order to add authentic little rustic and vintage touches to her clients weddings and events. During this time, Tammy’s weddings were featured in Martha Stewart Weddings, New York Bride, Weddings New York, WellWed Magazine and Style Me Pretty.
Eventually getting married herself and having two beautiful children, selling her wedding planning firm for some years as full time mommy, Tammy most recently spent a year as catering coordinator for a local farm to table catering firm that allowed her to gain insight into catering service requirements. Tammy is a huge supporter of anything and everything local, seasonal and eco-friendly.
“With the creative world and resources at our finger tips, planning events and weddings have become a lot about creating environments where hosts can truly style an atmosphere that is both memorable and comfortable for guests, while at the same time stating who they are and what they love and enjoy”. With the hustle and bustle of what life has become for many, Tammy believes that we should all embrace our special occasions, making them as personalized and fabulous as possible.
Tammy’s recent passions have led to the fun stuff! With a sort of “stumbled upon design” aesthetic, she now offers and styles all of the little rustic and vintage delights that make each country inspired celebration both individual and eclectic.
Tammy is looking forward to hearing from you and playing a role in creating your special occasion to be as unique as you are!
