A Few of My Faves

I am so glad you stopped by! If you are like me, you have weddings on your mind and a cup of coffee (or sweet tea) in your hand! Hey, I love both, so I don't judge! ;) 

Congratulations and welcome to the wonderful world of Miss2Mrs. If you have recently become engaged or have been engaged for a while, or better yet, maybe you are celebrating a vow renewal and have determined that you could use some guidance. Well then, you are in the right place. I would LOVE to be your perfect planning companion! I have been helping couples have their dream day for over 10-years! Here, at SSWE, we take great pride in creating one-of-a-kind weddings!  

Hey Y'all, I'm Tara

Let's Get Personal


fun facts about me


A white mocha or chocolate chip frappe are my favorites! I'm up for meeting up with my brides to chat, and coffee is always on me!

coffee is my love language

Whew! What a job! Who knew that adulting would be so difficult

I'm learning to transition our young boys into adulthood

We will celebrate 22-years on December 4, 2021, and we couldn't be happier! 

I married my husband 6-months after meeting

Believe it or not, when we leave from vaca, I am already looking up a new adventure. However, Gatlinburg, TN is my favorite place to go!

traveling makes my soul oh so happy

Laura is new to the team and brings with her a different event planning background from her experiences in higher education working with fraternities and sororities. Laura’s hobbies include enjoying a good brunch spot, flipping furniture, a relaxing day at the beach, oh and planning her own wedding after getting engaged in January of 2021! Recently moving back to the area, Laura works at Old Dominion University where she previously earned her master’s degree. She is excited to be back in the area where her two passions collide: working with college students to help them succeed and event planning. She looks forward to working with you and helping the vision of your big day come to life!

Josie is an organized, intelligent, and driven person. Her strengths are being detail-oriented and knowing how to manage her time.
She grew up in Pennsylvania, where she ultimately completed college at Bloomsburg University with her teaching degree. She has been teaching in Virginia for four years and looking for something different.
When she is not helping with weddings or teaching, you will find her doing the following:
Basking in the sun on the beach, enjoying a boat ride on the lake, cooking and baking for her family and friends. Being an organizing enthusiast you will find her at Target looking for new ways to organize.
Event planning has always been an interest of hers. She is looking to learn everything she can about the industry in order to open up her own venue someday. 

Kayla brings a blend of experience, education, and a positive attitude to the team. She earned her Marketing degree from Virginia Commonwealth University, where she served as the Vice President of the Business Student Ambassadors. This is where she gave tours of VCU’s School of Business, planned events to connect current students with alumni, and ultimately caught the planning bug. Along with working on the SSWE team, Kayla works in the health insurance industry as Cost of Care Analyst Sr.

My name is Jessica Williams and I graduated from Uva in 2018 with a degree in kinesiology. I currently work as a rehab technician for Bon Secours in motion. Even though PT is my first love event planning/wedding planning has always been a close second so I’m really excited to see what new things I can learn from being apart of this team! 

From making your dream come true to all the steps along the way I am here to help SSWE make that happen for you! My name is Jessica and making your dream a reality is my priority! During my free time, you will see me doing the following: Spending time with my amazing husband and our two-year son and new born son (10.5.21), I love shopping, traveling anywhere that allows me to be adventurous, spending time with my Family and extended family  
I fell in love with doing weddings when I planned my own wedding in 2016 and knew this was something I would love to do. I know how special and amazing I felt on my wedding day and want the same for you💕
