"You would be lucky to have Tawnee as your wedding planner.  We simply could not have achieved the perfect day without her. We interviewed a handful of planners but when we met Tawnee and her husband, DJ Luis The Beast, they were easy to get along with and down-to-earth.  They were real people with taste and style; they weren't trying to sell us on the frou-frou wedding stuff you see in magazines. DJ Luis The Beast read our minds with the music selection; his mixes are so sick.  He made it clear it was about our taste and not his, which didn't matter because we loved his style but just fyi. The bottom line is, Tawnee works hard and has the perfect balance of business to get things done and the passion and heart to execute what was an emotional and magical day in our life.  My husband and I will always have a special place in our hearts for Tawnee and the very special team of people that she helped to pull together for what I would call a "dream wedding". - M&J


"Tawnee is awesome! We hired her as our day of coordinator, but she went above and beyond what we asked her to do. Her confidence and positive attitude made us feel so relaxed the day before, and throughout our entire wedding day. She always reassured us that everything was taken care of, and even brought our wedding party drinks before our grand entrance. Her husband Luis was very helpful as well! Our hotel room, first look, ceremony, and reception were all located at different venues with limited set up time. Tawnee was the point of contact for our entourage and vendors (about 10), made sure we were on time, decorated the church, transported items back and forth, cleaned up after the ceremony, set  up our reception of close to 400 guests,  etc!! There was sooooo much to do, but Tawnee made it happen! It was because of her that our wedding was the happiest day of our lives!" - Chainus N.


"We couldn't have enjoyed our wedding more than we did and this was all because of the great coordination provided by Tawnee Gomez at Urban Shindig. Her professional, creative, and fun skills allowed us to enjoy and relax on our special day. Although we did not use her for the full wedding planning, only coordination, I still felt like she put all her effort into making sure we had the best day of our lives. Tawnee took our boxes and boxes and more boxes of décor in which we had been collecting over 14 months and help us display it to bring our ideas to life. She took care fo every last detail and we would have not been able to pull our wedding day off without her. We cant thank you enough !!" - Kolby and Katie 06.01.13




"While planning our wedding, we aimed to go through the DIY route, mostly because we were trying to save money and cut corners. Little did we know, that sometimes you just can't do everything on your own. As stress began to escalate and all those small details began to blur, Tawnee came along.  The timing could not have been more perfect. Her sweetness and confidence put us at ease. We sat down and talked the whole "day of wedding" through and she was jotting down small, yet vital, details and mapping out where everything would go.  As silly as it sounds, my vision of the wedding day became her vision times ten.  It turned it even more beautiful and organized than I had imagined.  That day, our day, all we had to worry about was making sure we didn't pass out before saying our "I do's." I still do recommend going the DIY route as much as you can, but please, please do yourselves a favor and hire a day of wedding planner.  You won't regret her." - Kathleen E.


"There are no words to describe how incredible Tawnee Gomez and her husband (DJ LTB) are at what they do. Urban Shindigs is just getting started and you would think they have been doing weddings for years... I met with countless coordinators and none offered what Urban Shindigs did!!!! Our wedding was at a venue where nothing "came with"... anything and everything we wanted had to be brought in, setup and taken down ourselves. Initially this was a little overwhelming but Tawnee insured us that It Could Be Done!!! And boy was she telling the truth!!! Our wedding was beyond perfect!! Everything I had imagined, down to the placement of certain decor was PERFECT!! Even leading up to the wedding Tawnee was on top of it; e-mailing me monthly reminding me of the little tasks that are easily forgotten, meeting with me-even if there was nothing really to meet about (bridezilla moments), dealing with my family drama FOR ME (very helpful), contacting all my vendors so I didn't have to, all the way down to the pep talk the night before!!! She does EVERYTHING... during the reception she was there to detour our guests so we could get a bite to eat, fix my dress, provide my lip gloss when necessary for pictures, and one of the best things was her working side by side with her husband who was our DJ. Coordinating our reception in an organized fashion that flowed seamlessly. Luis Gomez aka "Luis the Beast" played all our favorite songs, the genre we requested and much much more!! I cant say enough about how great these two are and how incredible and enjoyable they made our wedding!!!! I would recommend them to anyone and everyone 100x's over!!!!!!!! THANK YOU URBAN SHINDIGS!!!!! All our love, the Stills!!!!!!! xxoo" - Amanda S.
