"Tanya, Tanya, Tanya,
don’t know where to start to thank you for making
Michelle’s Bat Mitzvah party sooooo spectacular.  People are still talking……  It was awesome, spectacular……more than one could imagine.  You were there for me in every step of the way from day one a few years ago.  We clicked immediately and I knew right then you were the right person who could make my dream into a reality.  I really have no words to describe the event and not enough words in the dictionary to thank you.  Rest assured you are taking over for any other events I will have in the future.  This time I am staying away……. i loved the small touches you added to all the stuff I brought.  Honestly, I am speechless!  Thank you so much for everything.  You are my rock and a rock star!! I hope you had the time to sit and eat as well!?!?!? I hope we can stay in touch regardless of whether or not there is an event to address.  You are a true friend."

All the best.  Keep rocking girl!

"We had great luck, fortune and to put it simply, God had his hand in
connecting us with Tanya Wilbon and The Event Group International in April of
2013. We scheduled a meet and greet at the site of the venue and
absolutely fell in love with the warm spirit Tanya and Steve conveyed. We
immediately knew that she would be the person along with her staff that could
provide us with a once-in-a-lifetime wedding at an affordable cost. On
September 7th, 2013, she along with her incredible team did exactly that for
us. Her unique ability to balance both form, function, ego, jitters,
sub-contractors, and vendors, not to mention a nervous bride, allowed us to
experience the most beautiful day of our lives. She was sensitive to what
we envisioned, while flawlessly balancing the business side of what a
wedding demands. Her team was both quick and responsive with answers and
solutions every time anything was asked, requested or even slightly
mentioned. Her planning and attention to detail was un-paralleled.
Her suggestions were spot-on, her insight was expansive and her taste was
beyond reproach. Words cannot describe the talent Tanya and her team
revealed to us on our wedding day. Obviously, we would highly recommend her to
anyone planning a wedding or any important event for that matter. She truly is
one of a kind and you should be prepared not only to have every wish granted
and to enjoy a stress free, beautiful, wonderful, perfect wedding day, but also
to make a lifelong friend in Tanya!"

Jennifer & Todd Hawkins - London, KY

“Tanya and her team are truly the best! Tanya definitely made the wedding planning process stress free and smooth as we could ever ask for. We are so blessed to have had her as a wedding planner and pulling off our special day. Everything was beautiful and we received so many compliments on our wedding and it was all because Tanya put everything together perfectly. We couldn't have asked for a better wedding planner, she definitely knows how to capture your vision and bring it to reality. We would definitely recommend her to anyone in need of a wedding planner, and if we had to rate her from 1 to 10...it would be a 10+. Whenever we needed something or had a question, she was always responsive and quick. She was truly the ultimate professional. Thank you so much again Tanya, and we would highly recommend her to any engaged couple always!”

Levicia and Kareem – Richmond, VA

"Tanya Wilbon and the Event Group International were
exceptional in the planning and execution of our Washington DC wedding. I am a
perfectionist and Tanya went to extraordinary lengths to ensure every single
element of our wedding and all of the follow-up events were in-line with my
vision and at times, beyond anything I could have imagined. Tanya Wilbon is an
extraordinary planner with a positive, can-do attitude who executes like a
powerhouse CEO but treats her clients like old friends with the utmost respect.
Her team created a dream wedding that all of guests are still raving about- one
year later!"

Kevin and Michele - Stafford, VA

"Let me first start by saying that I have never before used a planner, and if it hadn't been for the total wreckage of my wedding in November 2006, I would have never considered getting one when my husband and I decided to renew our vows this year (November 2012). But, due to our event being held in Antigua and some apprehension from our first "todo" I knew that I, not only wanted a planner, but I NEEDED a planner! I didn't know the island (as far as vendors, venues, etc) and it's not a place that is very known for immaculate destination weddings as others (like Jamaica or Puerto Rico or St. Lucia). I needed someone who not only knew the island but had a reputation for showcasing exquisite style while executing flawless delivery without breaking the bank, lol. And after weeks of researching Antiguan planners, I found Virginia based Tanya and The Event Group International- who not only delivered on my expectations but superseded them!From our first phone conversation (as we live in different states) to our first meeting (she and her husband came all the way down to meet with us in person to describe the vision for our day) to her always answering my 4am, 11 pm, and whenever phone calls, emails, texts, smoke signals, etc. - I was always impressed with her ability to meet my needs while still being fully committed to the event she may have been hosting/planning at the time.

While the first 8 months remained pretty uneventful, the last 3-4 months were filled with questions and last minute changes. From the guest list to my request for "fireworks" she managed to pull it all off seamlessly. The week of my ceremony was chaotic and after I slammed my manicured nails in a door, dealt with inane inconveniences of and from my resort, conflicts with family and the like- I'm in awe of how a muffled phone call would bring Tanya bounding from her suite to mine to console me and take it all from my plate.She and her husband chauffeured my husband, myself, and my photography team (Keith Cephus Photography) around the island for breathtaking images, groceries (lol), and all! When I almost drowned in the ocean (not really) she was there to pick me up and fix my makeup. There were so many surprises during my special day it was as if she was not only in my head but in my heart. I'm so glad I chose an award winning photography team that was able to capture Tanya's timeless and beautiful work and epic style. The degree of detail and quality of material and time make her stand out amongst any other planner.

I miss her so much and hope that this review speaks as highly of her as she deserves to be lauded. I will forward her images of the day so that she can display her "visionistic" abilities on her site as well as other affiliated event sites. Thank you Tanya and Steve for making my day more beautiful than I could have ever imagined!!!!! I love you from the bottom of my heart and am eternally grateful! "
