"There are not enough words to express how grateful I am to Tanis J Events! My wedding was absolutely AMAZING! I was a destination bride who had to plan my Charleston wedding from Charlotte, NC. I hired Tanis for budgeting, venue/vendor selection, design, set-up and candy buffet for 250 guests. I chose to have my wedding at the SC Aquarium which meant that set-up, décor and vendor coordination had to be done within a tight 2 hour window. Tanis was able to manage over 12 vendors, set up, organize my wedding party of 30 people and we started ON TIME!! Throughout the planning process Tanis was extremely flexible and was able to represent me in times when I couldn’t come to meetings. Tanis truly cares about her brides. I wanted to ensure that despite having full-service planning...it was important that MY vision of MY wedding would be properly implemented according to my wishes. Tanis did that and more! We laughed together. We cried together. We had some stressful times and boy did we have some fun ones!! Thru it all...we developed a bond that I don't think will ever be broken. I know I could not have done it without Tanis. She is truly gifted and she just gets me. We even had a couple of hiccups (no fault of ours of course) that Tanis breezed thru seamlessly and with ease. In fact, we are still the only two people who know about them ;-) Bottom Line....Tanis is remarkable at what she does. She is worth far more than the fee that she charges. I owe many thanks to Tanis for making my wedding day one that I will NEVER forget. Thank you Tanis!!!"

"There is so much that I can say about the services that Tanis provided my husband and me. I was a desperate bride that came to her with a 6 month engagement. Needless to say I was very stressed out and faced so much negativity from other wedding planners because my date was so close. Tanis took away all of my worry when she reassured me immediately that my problem was not a problem at all. In that small period of time, she pulled together a wedding that will be talked about for years to come. The ideas & creativity that she displayed on our wedding day was fit for a queen. Tanis is very professional and very easy to get along with. We will always have a special place for Tanis in our hearts as she made our day well worth the wait."

"Tanis was wonderful to work with. When we first met, I wanted to hire her for her affordability, and type A personality, and as the months went on (especially the last month), I realized how important those things became. She was extremely professional, easy to work with, and has amazing organizational skills...which is exactly what you need to have for this type of event! I never received 1 phone call on my wedding day, everything was handled by Tanis, and it turned out beautifully. I would recommend her services to anyone who is looking for great quality at an affordable price, and a much less stressful wedding planning experience."

"When I was looking for a wedding planner/coordinator I knew exactly what I would need. I have a very large and crazy family and anyone planning a wedding can tell you that it is a day that you need to have be YOUR day for both you and your fiance'. I can honestly say that Tanis and her husband allowed us to truly enjoy our day with no fear of any snags in our master plan being tossed at us through out the day! I will say that it's true when they say that no one will know if anything is wrong but you. I can honestly say that everything seemed to go wrong but EVERYTHING was PERFECT thanks to Tanis J. Events Planning! Thank you both for being so amazing!"

"Tanis Jackson is outgoing and creative. If you don’t have it, don’t know it, can’t find it, or are simply lost, she will be the one to pull you through it and get everything you need. From day one, after talking with her, we knew she was going to be our planner. She was there every step of the way and promptly returned our phone calls and/or emails in a timely manner. If there was a worry, she took care of it. We couldn’t travel as often as it was probably necessary for us to do the wedding but Tanis took care of all the leg work for us. On the day of the wedding, her husband and she worked so very hard to make things perfect for us. Not one time were we stressed for anything, not even water. Tanis has this down to a science and we don’t know what we would have done without her! Thank you!"
- Jill McLees Carpenter & Tim Carpenter, Anderson, SC
"I hired Tanis in the start of all the planning for my wedding. We originally had gone with a venue in Charleston that was fairly new. After some back and forth with this venue about some business issues within, we decided to withdraw. Tanis helped me find a new venue in a matter of about a day. She supported me on my decision and put me at ease. Tanis was always very prompt and quick to answer all emails. On day of, she was accommodating and moved things the exact way I wanted. Our day was pretty much flawless and everything went smoothly. I credit this to Tanis' attention to detail and making sure ALL was in order prior to our big day!"
- Haley Marozas, Greenville, SC
"As a bridesmaid of more weddings than I would like to acknowledge, I must say that I surely witnessed the work of a mastermind! You and Chauncey absolutely went above and beyond to make this wedding a spectacular one by being professional, yet very personable and inviting! The Bride and Groom never had to worry about a thing. Even when unforeseen events tried to take the lead, you made them but a distant memory! We can't thank you enough for making the wedding day such a success! So many people complimented the wedding and how well it all went. You were the rock for the whole event ... reassuring us, keeping things on time, letting us know just what we needed to know, and just doing whatever needed to be done for everyone to fully enjoy the experience and be "in the moment"! You rock!!! . If I had to choose one word to describe you and your talents, it would definitely be AWESOME! Ladies and Gents…Tanis KNOWS awesome and speaks it fluently!!!! I would highly recommend Tanis to anyone out there looking for help planning any event!"
- Izetta Palmer, Charleston, SC
"Tanis was so great and helpful. She offered suggestions and help me with ideas for my 10 year vow renewal. She took care of everything and called me the day before to ensure everything was ready to go. She is very organized and I loved having her has my coordinator."
- Katrina Denny, Charleston, SC
"Tanis was great! I did the planning sort of 'backwards,' and didn't start looking for a planner until about 3-4 months outside of the wedding. She was so responsive and attentive and paid great attention to detail. She took the reins once I paid her a deposit and ran with it. She was very knowledgable about the industry and was so helpful with everything. She is also very reasonably priced. It's worth it to get a planner even for day of, because they will take over everything so there is nothing you have to worry about, except for having fun with your girls and getting ready, etc. Tanis has you fill out a lot of paperwork before hand so that she has everything she needs at least a week before, to help things run more smoothly. She was great at the rehearsal, and everything ran so smoothly. I can't say enough great things about Tanis! She is great and takes the worry away so you can enjoy your special day!"
- Laura Sluss Benware, Charleston, SC
"I've had the pleasure to work with Tanis on several occasions and every event has been spectacular!!! She takes care of every detail of the event, fulfilling the bride's every dream. One event that I'll always remember is when an approaching hurricane threatened the Lowcountry, and there was the possibility that the bride's venue would be inaccessible if the hurricane continued on its current path. Not willing to take a chance on the bride's venue, Tanis opened up her own home to host the ceremony and reception. This is dedication; not just to her job, but to the bride and groom."
- Jay Maxwell, Owner of Music by Request, Charleston, SC
"Tanis, It is so funny how things work out; one day you were ordering your wedding cake with me, and a year later I am calling you to be my coordinator for my wedding. I couldn’t have done it without you! You were on top of everything and what impressed me the most…you did it all by yourself. “Wow!,” to the favors on the tables, to the sparklers at the end of the night…everything was perfect! Thank you so much for making me feel so stress free and for making our wedding day as memorable as ever! I look forward to working with you again and again and continue to send business your way. With lots of hugs.....Thank you!!!"

"I couldn't have done it without Tanis!! I was a bride from Hong Kong and my wedding took place on 1st of July in Charleston. I found Tanis on the internet and the entire 9 months before the wedding week, I could only communicate with her from overseas. It didn't stop me from believing in Tanis' professionalism, which was shown to me through her email responses, paperwork (electronic ones, of course). Even during the month prior to the wedding, things still seemed not to be in place, Tanis' coordination and fast reaction told me I can leave it all to her, when I was thousands of miles away!! What impressed me most was, I selected a lovely cozy venue and was intended just for banquet, but because right from the beginning I wanted both ceremony and banquet to take place at the same location, Tanis helped me to sort that out. She was able to carry out a smooth transformation of the small space from a setting for ceremony to that for cocktail hour, and in turn, for seated-dinner. I would definitely recommend her to other brides, even the out-of-town and overseas ones. On a side note, we truly appreciated the side help from her "assistant"!! :-D Thanks again, Tanis!!"

"To Whom It May Concern: As an event/wedding planner myself, i know the importance of hiring the perfect vendors for any event. When it came time to host my niece a baby shower, i hired Tanis for the candy station. Tanis took the time to research a variety of candies that matched the shower colors perfectly. She gave me a long list of items to choose from and the prices for each, thus, allowing me to stay within my budget and then had the perfect sized containers for each!! Tanis has been so easy to work with during the planning phase of the shower and was so conscientious of color, theme, and budget. The candy station was a huge hit and all because of Tanis. I would not hesitate to hire Tanis again for any candy station needs that i or my clients may have in the future!! Thank you, Tanis!! It was great!!"

"Whoever said that a “peace of mind is priceless” must have met Tanis Jackson. When I started planning for my wedding I thought I could do it all. Little did I know what “all” included until I met Tanis. Tanis took the stress of everything while I was still apart of all the planning. Planning a wedding is something I found that I only want to do once in my life. Tanis however, does it everyday and truly enjoys each one more than the last. My only regret about hiring Tanis is that I didn’t hire her sooner!"
- Lisa Pettigrew Nash, Charleston, SC
"Thanks Tanis Jackson of Tanis J Events for a flawless night! Everything was perfect. I couldn't think of a word that could explain better than perfect. It's been quite some time since we have shot a wedding that has ran so smoothly and gave the clients time to have the portraits done that generally take more time than the generic formal session. Super Awesome job Tanis. I’ll always be a fan."
- Mike Mizzell, Tillman Branch Photography, Charleston, SC
"Tanis provided exceptional day of planning for our wedding. Tanis and I were able to sit down and tailor her services to exactly what we needed on our big day. Hiring Tanis was one of the best decisions we made. Our wedding day was stress free and a whole lot of fun. I was a DIY bride but am so thankful I had someone there to execute my ideas perfectly. Hire Tanis for your big day and you will not regret it."
- Danielle & Caleb, Summerville, SC
"Tanis is simply amazing!!! I can not say enough about her knowledge , professionalism, responsiveness , and organization. This was money well spent and I feel like I got more than I paid for. We also appreciate the extra help from her wonderful husband. They were an amazing team and a pleasure to work with."
- Monica Gauss, Charleston, SC
"With little notice Tanis was able to seamlessly coordinate and arrange the wedding of our dreams. Having a beach wedding is a gamble and Tanis was ready for anything! We ran into an issue with high tide and not enough beach. Before I knew there was a problem, she secured an even better location and was able to get us a beautiful pergola and wooden benches for our guests. I couldn't have asked for more! What I am most thankful for is the stress she took off my Mom's shoulders so she could actually relax and enjoy our wedding. Thank you for helping make our day so special!!"
- Tonya & Ben Creamer, West Chester, OH
"Tanis did an amazing job! We purchased a candy buffet for my brother-in-law as a gift for his wedding. Her attention to detail, our budget and the design were flawlessly executed. We couldn't have been happier with the results. The guests were so happy!"
- Nicole Fealey, New York, New York
"Tanis did an amazing job doing day of coordination for my wedding!!! She went way above and beyond to make sure everything went smooth the day of my wedding and many weeks leading up to the day!!! Not only did she keep everything on track, she kept me together right before I went down the aisle ....otherwise I might have fallen apart!! I recommend Tanis to any bride who wants to have an amazing wedding!!
- Haily Rodda, Naples, Florida
"A BIG thanks to Tanis Jackson from Tanis J Events for speaking to my Trident Tech class, "How To Plan A Wedding." Tanis gave the most comprehensive explanation of budgets, contracts and timelines that my students could wish for. I think she opened a few eyes, inspired a few would be planners and gave them a great insight into the industry. THANKS, again, Tanis!"

- Cynthia Wills, Mt. Pleasant, SC
"Do you have a big event coming up? If so, I highly recommend Tanis Jackson, owner of Tanis J Events, as the best event planner in the greater Charleston area. My son and future daughter in law could not decide on venues, florists and even I had trouble coming up with a site for the rehearsal dinner. Tanis has connections throughout Charleston and can help you with the largest and even the smallest details to make your event special. Tanis thank you for helping make their wedding day so perfect."

- Dr. Kim Hall (Boo's Mom), Charleston, SC
"Tanis has a wealth of knowledge about local resources. In planning our wedding, we were able to tap into that knowledge and stay local being that we are from out of town. Plus, her wedding ideas are fabulous, her candy bar that she designed was a huge hit and her planning is meticulous. A joy to work with!"
