  • Gorgeous day; some details were overlooked but overall it was more than we ever hoped. Responsiveness got better closer to the date; felt like some details could’ve been dealt with earlier.

    Thank you so much Laura for your feedback . We are sad to hear you felt some response times were slow . It was such a beautiful wedding with the most amazing weather for the gardens and the reception colors you choose were amazing inside of the reception space .. We were so blessed and grateful to be a part of Will and yours Special Day .. From the custom designed seating chart , table menus and numbers we provided at no additional cost to accent the candles you choose from our inventory to use ,along with card box , Cake knife set , Mr & Mrs signs , the copper lanterns in the gardens for down the aisle and the special touches you added it was spectacular !! Best Wishes to a lifetime of happiness for the two of you . - Special Moments Event Planning Team

  • Tammy and her team have done both of my sister's weddings and there was never a question of who we were going to hire to do ours. Tammy worked with us every step of the way and then Mark and Jennifer were extraordinary the day of. Everything little thing we needed, they were there and had it. Throughout the whole night I felt like I always knew where at least one (if not both) of them were if I had a question, needed something, or a situation needed trouble shooting. I honestly cannot even say how much easier the wedding planning process was with Tammy's team and I can't imagine how we would have done it without them!

  • Tammy and her team did an excellent job bringing all of the MANY details together for our wedding. Tammy's knowlede and expertise were invaluable to us as well as her recommendations along the way (DJ, photographer, florist, caterer and more). She listened to what we wanted and helped create and incredible "production"! And ON the wedding day....I don't know how we would have done it without her. She was hard at work putting up arches, coordinating caterers, setting up seating (and since we had the reception in the same place.... she had to set up the reception quickly as well). I am SO grateful to her for her hard work, expertise and professionalism. I would recommend her to ANYONE who wanted to have what many guests called "The Best Wedding Ever". It couldn't have been a better experience with her!

  • A Wife and Husband would be 100 percent in good hands should they choose Special Moments. From the first meeting at the Special Moments office I (The Husband) felt like I was in good hands. Our venue was picked, yet all we had was the venue and ourselves. What we needed was a wedding planner and what we received through Special Moments were subject matter experts you had our back in every aspect of the wedding. These wedding planners contribute so much of their time and energy that every payment that came out for their work I felt like it wasn't enough. Should you not have a DJ or photographer or florist, best believe these subject matter experts have the perfect suggestions to leave you having the best sleep you ever had. The day of our wedding, we felt as if we were royalty with nothing to worry about other than showing up and smiling. The service we received was so special and hands on that we could re-live the moments over and over again. My Wife was extremely happy, and as... Read more

  • Tammy Waterman of Special Moments was recommended to us by our wedding cake maker. We live out of state and I was trying to plan the wedding on my own. Let me tell you - if you are planning a wedding from afar, you can't live without a wedding planner. I could have saved a lot of money if I had hired Tammy from the start as she has connections with a lot of vendors I didn't know about. Her help the day before and the day of the wedding was immeasurable. There's so much to think about and having a person there who has it all covered so you can relax and actually enjoy the day getting the bridal party ready and enjoying the reception was awesome. She also saved the day in so many ways...from making sure the gifts and gift cards were secure, getting us last minute linens when our linen provider had all of her linens ruined when the fire sprinkler went off. Making the table assignment placards. Loaning me a gift card basket. Coordinating all of my vendors. And then making sure the br... Read more

I wish a lifetime of happiness to your daughter and please stay in touch !!! Big Virtual High Five !!! Tammy Waterman , MWP Lead Dream Maker

  • Tammy, Shauna and the Special Moments team are all incredible! Initially we had debated getting a coordinator thinking we could do it on our own but immediately after meeting Tammy we knew we wanted them to help us with our big day! They did an absolutely amazing job! From getting us the cheapest rates, to turning a plain room into a gorgeous design, to making sure everything ran smoothly the day of they did it all! We have not stopped getting compliments about how beautiful the wedding was and a HUGE part of that is because of how great the Special Moments team is. They were always in contact with us, super organized, helpful in answering any and all questions, gave us their honest professional opinion and incorporated what we wanted to have at our wedding! The wedding was an absolute dream come true and we couldn’t have done it without them! Thank you all from the bottom of our heart! May the Lord bless you!

  • Tammy and her team were great to work with. Always fast to respond to emails. Extremely detail oriented. I used them as my day of coordinator and they helped everything go smoothly. Even before the wedding they were very helpful with recommendations. I also rented items from them which made things super easy. Shauna was my day of coordinator and she was GREAT!

  • Tammy,Krissy and Erin were awsome and have become new friends of mine. I got more than expected and they read into a person very well knowing exactly what you want. Not like other vendor they dont try to milk you dry with rediculous fees and prices. I was told to stop spending money! Special Moments will make your wedding look like a million bucks.

    Courtney thank you so much for the kind words and we remember your 2008 wedding as if it was yesterday .. Beautiful fall theme in such a Unique location .

  • We interviewed several coordinators before we selected Tammy. The decision was easy to go with Tammy and she didn't disappoint. I'd recommend her to anyone, she took a lot of the stress out of the wedding planning.

  • We got married at the Sirata Beach Resort in St. Pete Beach. We had our reception in the Coconut Palm Pavilion. We used Special Moments for the drapery inside the Coconut Palm Pavilion. Working with Tammy was so easy and she was so helpful. We sent Tammy a photograph of what we were looking for in regards to the drapery and twinkling lights. Her team hit it spot on the day of our wedding! It looked amazing! Thank you so much!

  • Beware It seems weddings handled by owner Tammy herself are those in which your paying an exorbant amount and they then seem to pull off miracles. But if they chose Shauna, who is a staffer who worked at David’s bridals, this clearly is above her paygrade. She did not recreate one detail given for my wedding, she was given verbal instruction, a list for decor items needed and wanted, inspiration shots and restated the instruction for what I envisioned. Sadly, I was on the receiving end of an amateur with no oversight on my wedding day. It is evident the owner has no accountability to her staff and their lack of attention to brides vision. I simply must not have bought into the Elite services of competence. Let me note my Wedding turned out beautiful due to the friends and family attendance and how my new husband and I added our touches that WE carried thru on: covering room charges, fresh flowers in guests rooms, activities the entire weekend, Cuban dinner at our home, a...
