Destination Wedding PLANNING and Event Management
Associate Coordinator, Los Angeles
Tamara grew up on the island of Maui, Hawaii but came to Los Angeles for college at Loyola Marymount University. Tamara went on to pursue her love of teaching dance and opened up her own dance studio, but it was after she met her husband Chris that she realised a passion for wedding planning. She married Chris in her hometown in 2014 and shortly after, her wedding photographer, Candice Benjamin, suggested connecting with Jen, Owner of First Pick Planning and has been working with First Pick ever since. She takes prides in listening to her clients needs as she knows first hand the importance a wedding planner can play for a couple on their wedding day. Having had a less than favorable experience working with her own wedding planner in Hawaii, Tamara takes pride in being a strong advocate for her clients wishes to ensure the best possible day for her couples.
When Tamara isn't planning weddings, she is spending time with her beautiful twin girls. Her and her husband welcomed Ainsley and Harper in September 2016, who can now even be found walking down the occasional aisle (as flower girls of course!)
