Taren is the Founder and Lead Planner of Diamond Receptions Wedding Planning & Design.  For nearly thirty years in the event industry, Taren has planned many weddings, galas, corporate events and fundraisers.   

Known for her unique ability to provide her clients with a concierge-style luxury planning experience; her love for design and style has positioned her to be one of the most respected event planners in the Orlando and Central Florida areas.


Earlier in her planning career, Taren managed several non-profits and coordinated their fundraisers and galas.  To date, the Chamber of Commerce she managed still uses the same activities she designed for their annual gala. Taren was also a beauty contestant coach and wardrobe stylist.  She was a certified Miss Florida/America and Miss Florida/ USA judge and had the honor of having several of her clients compete on the National level for both organizations.


Although Taren loves to travel and has been to many unique destinations., she has learned that walking through this journey of life, there is nothing more gratifying  then spending time with her family.  Taren has been blessed to have three children and three grandchildren, who she totally adores.

It's because of her passion for her family and the joy of bringing a smile to others, that she has built her business to assist your family in having the most wonderful planning experience possible.
