To Whimsy Wedding’s Owner and Lead Event Planner, Tatiana, weddings represent creativity on its grandest scale. She views each event as a new blank canvas – one she can transform into a whimsical, unique event for a playful couple with details that illustrate their story.
A South Florida native and alumna of Johnson and Wales University, Tatiana’s drive for creating experiences for guests took her to top restaurants in Toronto and New York City where she mastered roles in restaurant management, private event management, and special event planning. It was in New York City where her love for special events sparked her awesome adventure with Whimsy Weddings.
Except for her cats, Winston and Ashe, and husband, Erich, nothing brings Tatiana more joy than a bride who is ecstatic upon being presented with her bouquet or seeing a couples’ vision come to life in their reception space. Through planning, design, and florals, Tatiana’s goal is to a plan a killer event that exceeds even your wildest dreams.
The only guy in the group, Erich’s passion for theatre production extended seamlessly into his passion for launching Whimsy Weddings with Tatiana. He’s both kind and caring, driven and sensitive, and he has a knack for becoming friends with everyone he meets. Though his roles of Owner, Business Manager, and Web Master keep our operations running smoothly (and wedding lights hung!), his most prized role at Whimsy Weddings shouldn’t come as a surprise.
After one meeting with Erich, you will walk away feeling as though you have just met your new best friend. Brides and grooms invite him to their next event, and families want him to become a member. At weddings, Erich relishes in the moment when he can take a step back to catch a glimpse of a packed dance floor filled with couples, families, and friends having a wonderful time together. Simply put, he wants everyone to leave a wedding day filled with memories.
A graduate of Wake Forest University and product of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, Erich has always been passionate about comic books and movies – all of them. He strives to keep his geek and wedding tanks filled simultaneously.
Weddings are founded on relationships, and each and every member of the Whimsy Weddings team treats their clients like friends (when a member of the team is the Relationship Rockstar, this isn’t a surprise!). Gerdy learned this fact firsthand because she was a Whimsy Weddings bride, and she is quick to note she wants to extend the same experience she enjoyed to her clients.
Born and raised in Brooklyn and Queens, Gerdy is a proud New York City native. She is of Colombian and Serbian decent, which is just one of the reasons why travel fuels her. Her wedding solidified the fact that she loves planning events. Plus, she’s always calm, quick to make others laugh, and believes in the power of simply being kind and caring – qualities that are golden in an event planner!
From details that exude personality to a wedding day that will leave you worry-free, Gerdy adores working with brides and grooms to design an experience that will create the most lasting joy. Simply put, Gerdy is magic, and your wedding day will be too.
