Hello!  I'm Taren, your potential Wedding Planner & Event Designer.  It’s such a pleasure to connect with you!


A little about me . . .For many years I worked at a local Chamber of Commerce as Membership Director and Special Events Director.  While there, my daughter & I wanted to spend more time together so we decided to compete in some local beauty pageants.  As my daughter's ambitions grew I started coaching young ladies in the beauty pageant world.  I then became a judge through the Miss America & Miss USA Pageant systems. This provided me the opportunity to learn about the gown industry, including wedding gowns; hence,

"The Gown Whisperer" was created.


As time passed, I continued to put on weddings and all types of events for friends and local businesses until I took a leap of faith and started Diamond Receptions, Event Planning & Design.  I’ve been blessed to be creating and planning events for over 3 decades; and I absolutely

LOVE what I do!  


My goal is to always bring YOUR dreams to life, while also giving your guests an experience of a "once in a lifetime" moment based on YOUR love story and vision.


I am here to make your wedding planning a smooth, enjoyable, experience, but most of all help you create. . .YOUR VISION!
