I wish that I could give Tarina and Coastal Fern Weddings more than 5 stars!
We hired Tarina as our day of wedding coordinator but she was so much more than that! We met with Tarina 10 months before the wedding and stayed in constant contact from that day forward. Tarina is so positive and energetic and was such a valuable resource for us on our big day, I don’t know if we could have done it without her. She is also extremely organized and made sure our day ran without a hitch (or if there was one she put out the fire before we even knew about it!) Everyone at the wedding loved Tarina and her schedule was a valuable resource to all the vendors and wedding party.
I can say with confidence that our wedding wouldn’t have been as wonderful without Tarina and I recommend her to anyone looking for help on their big day!

When we found Coastal Fern Wedding through work colleagues, we were unsure if hiring a wedding coordinator would be worth it. It was beyond worth it. She did tons that decreased the stress of planning and our wedding was organized and fun for all who were there. She is very experienced, attentive to details, and truly listened to us to make our wedding day everything we hoped it would be. Let me just say, that words cannot convey how instrumental Tarina was during our wedding. She was honest and real with us and helped in more ways then we initially ever imagined.
Tarina made a detailed, very workable realistic timeline for the morning of, the wedding and the reception. She helped communicate with vendors. and assisted our Emcees preparing for the wedding, which included making a simplified timeline for the Emcees. Tarina was like super woman when she helped us find a new photographer when an emergency health situation befell the photographer we originally had. Within a week she had a list of pros and cons of multiple photographers that were available for our wedding date, plus she also gave recommendations of who she felt would best match our personality and style of the photo we wanted.
On the wedding day the ring bearer pillow we bought through Amazon, that was supposed to be delivered a week prior still had nit been delivered. We were pretty choked. However Tarina acted quickly, and went out of her way to purchase a ring bearer pillow for us. Whats more, she helped fix hair after wedding party photos and before the actual ceremony. After the ceremony she assisted the photographer and us with getting group shots with family and friends. She was a ton of fun an helpful at the reception too. Tarina ensured things like the bouquet and garter toss happened, gave a glass of champagne to my Dad who had given a speech and wanted to make a toast, and for the sake of fun and good photos, initiated and led the cuban shuffle with a bunch of guests on the dance floor. Tarina communicated respectfully with the staff at the venue, the DJ, photographer, and our guests. She helped us stay organized so we could achieve everything we wanted done that day.

I met Cindy + Dustin just a couple months before their wedding. In our meeting, I learned they had booked everything but were having some challenges bringing it all together. As we sipped our coffees and talked about the day, I could feel the couple’s energy change from nervous to confident, happy and relieved. Through … Read More
