Our wedding day turned out to be perfect and a lot of the credit goes to Tara and the staff at the ballroom.  The setting at the ballroom was exactly what we were looking for, unique but very tasteful.  The food was great.  And the ability to manage the various components by Tara behind the scenes took a lot of the concern off our backs and allowed us to focus on enjoying the day. I would not hesitate to recommend their services to family and friends.”

The closer it got to my wedding the more anxious over details I would become.  Tara was there the entire way to help alleviate the anxiousness.  I didn’t have to overly sweat the small stuff because she would be there telling me that it was already taken care of.  With everything she took care of I was able to sit back and enjoy my special day.   She would be a great asset to any wedding.  She does all that is asked of her, within reason of course.  She deals with the hiccups and helps to make them non-issues.  Just know that Tara strives to make your day the best one of your life.  My wedding was beautiful, and I know a large part of that goes to Tara.  She is a true wonder.  I hope that everyone on here hire’s her.  She really could make the difference, and I know that I could not have done it without her.  For all that she has done I am truly grateful, and I hope everyone will get the chance to thank her as well.

Tara Banninger of Jim Thorpe Events is my co-producer, as well as a fellow board member of the Mauch Chunk Historical Society.  I wanted to tell you that you’re in very good hands by hiring her to be your event planner.  Tara is imaginative, energetic, and extremely capable.  Were it not for her, the Jim Thorpe Burlesque Festival could not have grown wings, and I have come to rely on her for her dedication to our event and her good judgment in making the decisions that go along with it.
