Get Social with Tamara

As I reflect upon the last 24 years in this business, I realize that every family, and every client has a story. As a wedding and party planner I am privy to some of the most intimate parts of people lives and their stories. So, today I decided to start to share some of these amazing memories and ONE crazy story. Pictured here is a bride from 12 years ago, a bride that I was fortunate enough to be hired to help plan her wedding. Now, here comes the funny part, 12 years later this beautiful bride is now my son's Grade 5 teacher. So, on the first day of school as she is checking her attendance she sees the name "Temes" and quickly asks my son, is your mom by chance Tamara Temes? Of course, he replies "yes, that's my mom." Then the teacher says "your mom planned my wedding." What a small world.
So, what I can take away from this story is, one never knows who will cross your path again, in this case it was a fortunate turn of events for both me and my son.

Small world Tamara 😊

You’re the best Tamara

Great little story!!

I am very I interested to find out how many of you ladies have kept the same engagement ring that your husband proposed to you with? I was married just about 24 years ago and the styles of engagement rings have certainly changed a lot over the years. I had a very beautiful but chunky yellow gold engagement ring. So, I decided for one of my milestone birthdays I wanted to update my engagement ring. I modernized my ring and custom designed it with an amazing and very talented jewelry designer and I am now absolutely in love with it. I also had the chance to incorporate some diamonds that were passed down from my maternal grandmother, which makes the ring now even that much more special. I would love to hear your stories.

After a cleaning lady stole the original (that was simple & I loved) I decided to redesign the new one. Love this one too.

God bless my hubby, when I asked to change my ring setting after 20 yrs which he had custom designed and made with all the love in his heart, he told me.....will you please wait till I’m dead 😂 😂 😂 some men hang on the the past!

Well I have a replacement ring because mine was stolen in a break-in a couple of weeks ago.

Same rings! 20 years this June. Loved them then..., still love them!

Same rings hubby and I have been together for 14 years, married for 8. (We waited 5 years, 2 kids later before we tied the knot)then had another baby.

22 years, as you may recall...since your were there... same one. Gold band that fits within a gold ring with a solitary diamond. it reminds me each day of where we were and where we have grown to. i will never change it. i have 9 other fingers for other rings i may one day inherit.

Married almost 16 years. Same ring. But FYI - yellow gold is back in style. Both my daughters received stunning yellow gold engagement rings.

Same but married 13 years "only" . Your ring is stunning!!!

At the top of her game.#TamaraTemes not only planned every facet of our wedding, she also designed our spiral ceremony in the round, sourced our A-Team of vendor talent. To that add, Matron of Honour and Emcee, duties shared with our sister Alana Vertlieb. Tamara commanded an army of talent with military precision and timing. Worked an 18 day, managed a bridal party that included her own three children who needed her loving attention and did it all while smiling. Does she love what she does? Well it's pretty obvious. #Jewish #Wedding #Party #Planner #Toronto. #TamaraSarahTemes. Ashley Botting, Tamara Temes Bridal and Party Consultant ... See MoreSee Less

From the Blog!

Busy times, booking events for 2015, 2016 and 2018. Not to mention, I have had the honor of planning so many romantic and unique Jewish Weddings, Bar & Bat Mitzvah's and Events. I have captured lot's of these on my blog as well as sharing some valuable advice that may reduce some of your costs and add that wow factor to your memorable day.

Top Two Questions that I Always get Asked
I thought it would be fun to blog about the top two questions I am always asked as an event planner.

 

The number one question...
KEEP CALM and PLAN ON
When life’s roller coaster throws you for a loop: KEEP CALM and PLAN ON

I started planning my daughter’s Bat Mitzvah a little over two...
