who we are...

where we've been...

Hi there! From inquiry to booking, I'm your first point of contact here at Town and Country! I'll draft your customized proposal, chat with you about your wedding, and match you up with one of our talented coordinators!

I know how exciting it is to be engaged and planning your wedding! I did it too, back in 2012, and my best advice is ENJOY EVERY MOMENT. Don't stress it. The day will fly by in the blink of an eye. Remember, YOU ARE GETTING MARRIED to your best friend! The rest is just peripheral. The flowers will be beautiful; the cake... sweet. So no matter what the details, take a pause, say your vows, and hold your love close. Your marriage has just begun.

For over 12 years, Erica has served in the event and hospitality industry, and her extensive experience in multiple vendor areas provides a solid foundation for her position as a lead coordinator for the Seattle area. Previous positions include a stint as Onsite Event Coordinator, In-house Wedding Planner and consultant for Washington’s Monte Cristo Ballroom, employment as an Event Specialist on the CORT Rentals sales and logistics team, and time spent in both wedding catering and photography. 

Erica’s goal is to achieve your vision and exceed your expectations! She works hard every day making our couples’ wedding planning journey easy, smooth and unforgettable. “I love seeing their dreams come to life! When the wedding has come to an end, and we get hugs from our bride and groom, and they say it was a success and they couldn’t have done it without you, it brings you such joy. It’s an amazing feeling to have."

Erica was raised in the beautiful Pacific NW, and loves spending time with her two boys in the outdoors, and taking quiet walks on Mukilteo Beach watching the ferries come and go.

After nearly 20 years in the wedding and event planning industry, including venue management as the onsite Event Coordinator at Oregon’s beautiful Emerald Valley Golf Club, Tammy has a passion for serving others and understanding each couple’s individual needs. Her best tool for wedding coordination is time management, and the goal of being ahead of schedule to keep things running smoothly and on time.

Tammy loves the small personal moments during each wedding - the groom getting emotional as he escorts his mother down the aisle, or the bride crying happy tears as her groom recites his vows. When not coordinating she enjoys spending time with her family in the great outdoors - fishing, camping and golfing.

Jill resides in beautiful Bend, Oregon, where she values all that Central Oregon offers for wedding enthusiasts. With 15 years of detailed wedding experience, including positions at Abernethy Center and the Oregon Historical Society in Portland, Jill now enjoys producing and coordinating weddings at the beautiful 140 acre High Desert Museum. She values timeliness and attention to small details, and strives to give exemplary customer service in all circumstances.

Jill loves the sweet walk down the aisle after the wedding when it all feels so real! She can’t get enough of those stolen moments - a fleeting smile during the reception, a high-five after the toasts, or a rowdy guest killin' it to their fav’ song on the dance floor. In her free time you will find her Packing Weights, Packing Kids and Packing Gear into one of the 7 mountain ranges in Bend… where she finally rests with a good book and a great drink!
