Tammy Golson, Wedding Planner

Brooklynite since: 2009

Favorite Brooklyn spots:  Fairway in Red Hook is my happy place. I thrive on the fresh produce and interesting ingredients that are available to me. I love being near the water and appreciate the view of Lady Liberty. Lot 2 is my neighborhood joint for an incredible meal (thanks to Kristina Hill for the recommendation!) and for a cocktail I am heading to Black Mountain Wine House in Carroll Gardens. Best sandwich: Caputo’s on Court Street, tied with Hanco’s.

Three words my closest friends would use to describe me: a dear friend once described me as a full contact sport (in a good way!), others would likely say I am thoughtful and passionate about life, my relationships and what I do.

What I love about what I do: I like helping couples plan a day that is tailored to celebrating their love in a thoughtful and original way that will honor their family and friends through delicious food and creative details. It’s an exciting process and extremely rewarding in the end.

Five things you don’t know about me:  I am originally from Wisconsin, so while I thrive in New York City, my Midwest values (and accent at times) prevail.  I have eaten sheep’s intestines and snake congee but snowboarding and trapeze school were far more frightening.  I used to be envious of and intrigued by people who loved their jobs; now I am happy to be among them.  I like to use my passport as often as possible.  I love seeking out new restaurants and place food on same scale as value when rating the experience.

Five jobs I had before I was a wedding professional: I worked at The New York State Theater in Lincoln Center during both opera and ballet seasons, I called the the Foreign Desk at The New York Times home for a lot of years, and I managed the culinary program (ran the kitchen; I was the “lunch room lady”) at a castle in Scotland housing students who were studying abroad.  I’ve worked front desk, night audit and waitressed my way through college.

  1. Tammy was a tremendous help in helping me plan my NYC wedding in June 2011. I especially appreciated her presense on the day of the wedding, making sure that everything ran smoothly. The day was a nervous wreck for me and knowing that she took care of all the details and coordinated the communication with all the vendors was a great relief. Besides her professionalism, she made me feel comfortable on a personal level with her excitement and sense of humor. My highest recommendations!!!

    Tammy Golson is the best wedding gift that I gave myself as a bride. She is truly an expert at what she does and she helped to make our wedding a tremendous success. She was our day of coordinator and I don’t think that we could have pulled it off without her. If you are considering hiring a wedding planner then contact Tammy Golson. She is absolutely worth every penny and you will not be disappointed. We loved her and highly recommend her services to everyone.
