  • As I’m sure many can attest to, 2020 has been a challenging year full of ups and downs. Like many brides out there, I was a 2020 bride trying to navigate planning a wedding amidst a global pandemic. I can wholeheartedly say, my wedding day would not have been possible without Tin Sparrow Events and the kind, compassionate, and brilliant Gariann. My husband and I (still exciting to say I have a husband !) are beyond grateful for everything that Gariann did for us,. Gariann was there for us every step of the way from the original planning to our wedding day. Her knowledge and expertise helped make our lives so much easier and was what allowed us to have our special day even when things kept changing due to COVID. Gariann was always there to answer texts and emails no matter what time or day, and bless her heart, there were several panicked calls and texts from me throughout the wedding planning process. Gariann was there for my husband and I as we quite literally planned and re-plann... Read more

  • Tin sparrow is hands down the best that washington state has to offer for wedding planning. GariAnn is a daughter, wife, mother and a wedding planner and sometimes a counselor. Her soul captured my heart within seconds of meeting her!! I came home to my fiancé and said my heart tells me she’s the one. She listened to all my crazy thoughts, and she never judge me. We went through this big whirlwind that had many ups and downs as the world was hit was Covid-19, but she never left my side. She assured me that no matter what I wanted to do during this time if it meant postponing the wedding or eloping and have a reception later that she was willing to change all things to make it happen. She told me covid can’t stop love,and guess what it didn’t I’m on cloud 9 with my husband. I spent a whole year and a few months with GariAnn and within that time I have gained a beautiful friendship. Her passion and eye for design is on point, like “kick ass”. This lady truly mad...

  • Tin Sparrow Events was hands down the best money we ever spent. Gariann from day 1 made this experience about Chris & I and always focused on what truly mattered...our love. Despite all the twists and turns 2020 threw our way, she stood by our side and guided us through a messy unexpected situation (covid) with grace and compassion. We will always be so thankful for her. She never gave up on us even though we were quite literally on the biggest rollercoaster. I’m at a loss for words when trying to describe just how much she means to us and how amazing she is. She will always make you feel valid in your decisions and guide you through all your wedding planning with ease. She slays at her job and has an eye for design that cannot he matched. Our wedding was out of our wildest dreams and we owe it all to Gariann. Do yourself a favor and hire her! You will not regret it!

  • If you think you don’t need a wedding planner you should think again. Hands down the best decision we made about our wedding. We had a very specific vision and were very hands on in the designing process with GariAnn assisting when we had questions/issues. But when it came to organizing and implementing we could NOT have pulled this off without Tin Sparrow. Not to mention, her connections with vendors which makes it a very seamless process. GariAnn and her crew came in on the big day and created magic. And I’m not exaggerating. Decisions were made, decor was set up, a stage was transformed, vendors were directed, guests were managed all while we focused on getting ready and pre ceremony photos. I did not have to manage one item on our wedding day. And that also included taking down and organizing at the end of the night. If there’s one thing you do for yourself on your wedding day, hire these people. They can do as little or much as you want!!! I had high expectations and they we... Read more

  • GariAnn and her team at Tin Sparrow are absolutely amazing! GariAnn was fantastic to work with. She is super professional and experienced. She was amazing at understanding what I was looking for, even when I couldn't articulate specifics! On planning – it was really helpful to have her walk us through what needed to be done and when, point out some things we may be misisng, share vendor information and recommendations, and overall reassure us to keep us on track. GariAnn also uses some really helpful online tools that she shares with clients that were great to have for the wedding, and that I might use again! On design – GariAnn and her team did an AMAZING job at this – our wedding was beautiful and exactly what I was hoping for. We rented linens and candles from her, combined with some greens from the florist, and her team set up the event. Very worthwhile – she really listened to what I wanted and took it up a level. She thought through details so I didn't have to! Finally, o... Read more

  • We were thankful to work with GariAnn and Brittany for our wedding on 9/29/18! As stressful as wedding planning can be it was so nice to have these girls at anytime we needed for questions, suggestions or ideas! GariAnn ran our rehearsal and Brittany was our coordinator for our wedding day! In the beginning I was hesitant on spending the money on a wedding planner/coordinator but I am so thankful we did. From the meetings, decor inventory, timelines, vendor communication, mock table set up and the unlimited texts and emails I had no idea how much goes into a wedding! I am so happy I had someone to help me out because we all know the guy isn’t too helpful haha! It was so nice to get ready with my girls and not be interrupted like most brides are on their day. If you’re thinking twice about a planner just do it... you’ll be happy you did!

  • I cannot express enough how grateful I am that we brought GariAnn on board as our wedding planner. She is a gem and was probably one of the best decisions we made throughout the entire wedding planning process. GariAnn provided guidance on what decisions needed to be made and when, provided suggestions on vendors as well as provided a sounding board for ideas, our vows and pretty much anything else we needed. She was professional, organized and always was there to keep us on target with our budget while ensuring that our wedding was everything we envisioned. The day of the wedding, GariAnn and the Tin Sparrow Team were amazing. She had everything set up beautifully and was on point when it came to keeping everybody on schedule and where they needed to be when they needed to be there. Her and her team made sure everything went without a hitch and if there were any issues, she took care of them. My husband and I enjoyed our meetings with GariAnn immensely as she made us feel at co... Read more

  • I can not recommend GariAnn and the Tin Sparrow team enough! They helped plan and coordinate my dream wedding. GariAnn was able to relieve all of the stress of planning a wedding and really listens to her clients. With her help I was able to have a dream team of vendors without breaking my budget! The day of coordination is an absolute must for any bride!! I was able to relax the day of my wedding and really enjoy the whole process without being stressed about who needed to be where at what times! She went above and beyond for me and my husband to be sure that our wedding day was exactly what we wanted, I can’t thank her and the Tin Sparrow team enough!!

  • I cannot say enough about the Tin Sparrow Events team. GariAnn worked with us living in Boise, ID and having our wedding in a small town in Eastern Washington and her being located in the Tri Cities like there was no distance between us at all. She was there to help us at any time we needed her and helped us create our dream wedding exactly how we wanted it! She helped us find vendors to get the look we wanted and tied all of the loose ends that we couldn't have finished without her! The Tin Sparrow team will help you be organized and have a timeline that is reasonable and that you can actually stick to on your wedding day to make sure everything goes perfectly. Thank you for making our wedding day everything we dreamed of and more!!!

  • Bringing on GariAnn as our wedding planner for our 9/10/16 winery wedding was hands-down the best decision we made throughout the entire wedding planning process. Trying to plan a Tri Cites wedding while over in Seattle, both working full time jobs, just wasn't happening. We had no idea where to even start, until we decided to hire GariAnn (TinSparrow Events). She opened our eyes to so many factors that we hadn't even thought of - killer wedding guest party favors, hiring a kick-ass band, pairing down our menu appropriately, a cigar bar, and so much more. Even just the little things that we wouldn't have even thought of, she already had covered in our monthly FaceTime chats. She is so organized, so professional and such a pleasure to be around. Not only was the planning process with her easy as cake, but the actual wedding day went off without a hitch - all thanks to her. I heard all night (and still getting feedback!) from my wedding guests that GariAnn was "the shit", "amazing", "you... Read more

  • GariAnn and her team were absolutely fantastic. We hired her to do our day of coordinating, but she helped with so much more! My (now) husband and I didn't have to worry about anything the entire day. She worked with my family and friends to get the entire venue set up, coordinated the ceremony, and made sure everything was taken care of through the evening. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for a top notch planner!

    Thank you so much for the amazing review Rachel!! Your wedding was an absolute dream and we are so proud to have been invited to be a part of it!! Congratulations again for the whole TS Family...
