Taffy offers a range of planning and coordination options—whether you need someone to handle all of the planning details from the start or just need a coordinator to work on your wedding day. Because she also offers linen rentals, invitations and other printed material and accessories, plus bouquet preservation, Taffy has an enhanced ability to give you a pulled-together look for your event in a one-stop shop environment.
Taffy Holmes Gonzalez is a graduate of the National Association of Bridal Consultants Professional Development Program. She also has a degree from Cal Poly SLO in Journalism with a concentration in Public Relations. She has taught wedding planning courses at Cuesta College and the San Luis Obispo Adult Education School. Taffy also serves on the board of directors for the Central Coast Wedding Professionals.
With this sort of background it shouldn’t be surprising that we consistently heard fellow wedding professionals admire her aplomb and ability to see solutions where others see problems. Even in situations when she didn’t assist in the choice of vendors or when the weather doesn’t cooperate, “she doesn’t freak out when there is a snag in the plans or something doesn’t go as expected. She calmly figures out how to best fix the situation,” as a local vendor told us.

“We wanted to do a lot of the planning ourselves, with Taffy as a brace for us, which she supported. She ended up being a lifesaver in a number of ways on the actual wedding day. We loved how Taffy had a ‘Plan B’ for everything. We found ourselves in troubled spots several times, mainly on the wedding day, but she calmly took care of everything like it was no big deal. She was a huge asset to our wedding! It wouldn’t have been successful without her, guaranteed!”
“Taffy’s dedication to her brides shines in everything she does. She was absolutely phenomenal before and during the wedding. She was honest with me and I found her to be correct in her assessments. My wedding day was as perfect as they come. I never had a stressful moment the whole day, and I give all the credit to Taffy.”
“When I hired Taffy I basically could only fly in to meet with her a few times. I gave her my ideas and then she would come up with ideas to execute them—from simple to elegant. I would have to say that I had the easiest wedding ever, and I owe that to Taffy.”
“Taffy is very real and down-to-earth. She is a delight to work with. I always felt I could say anything to Taffy. She has a unique ability to sift through what you are saying and come up with the best solution.”
“Taffy is the perfect combination of organizational skills and a genuine heart. She is a gem. I have seen Taffy handle some very, very difficult brides. In these very difficult situations, she has maintained her professionalism, composure and genuine humanity. I could only hope to do the same given the circumstances.”
