Hi! I'm Tanya Hartman

I've been in love with weddings since I first picked up a wedding magazine in high school.  For 15 years, I worked in fundraising events and government administration, until I finally decided to pursue something I truly love!  I've been a bride once, a bridesmaid three times, and a bachelorette party and bridal shower attendee countless times.  To me, asking someone to stand next to you on your big day is one of the greatest honors you can give to your best gal!  Together, let's show her just how much she means to you and make sure her experience, and YOURS, is the absolute BEST!
