As a lover of all the pretty things + logistics and efficiency, Taylor Paige felt conflicted in how to combine her skills into one single passion. With a degree in mathematics and professional background project management, she never imagined she would succeed beyond spreadsheets and cubicle life. That was until she planned her own wedding in 2018 and realized how incredibly valuable her skills were to the wedding world...and what is often missing from traditional wedding designers - the logics! Taylor Paige is an enneagram 3w2 through and through (PS - google what the top careers are for this type and you'll see Wedding Planner at the top!) She is the ultimate project manager and problem solver - combined with an eye of design, caretaker spirit, and a charisma that will make you feel like she's your best friend within the first 10 minutes of meeting!
She lives in Kansas City with her husband, Donald, and their 2 pups - a one-eyed mini Yorkie named Preslee and a Great Dane named Guinness (best of both worlds!). She is a lover of costume parties, Taylor Swift, and Messenger Coffee's salmon toast. In the 2022 wedding season, she battled through cancer treatment and is currently in remission, now dedicated to living LOUD!
If you need the ultimate personal hype girl, Lead Coordinator Paxton is who you’re looking for!
She has worn several hats in the KC wedding world - as a venue manager, freelance assistant coordinator, social media manager - and now, Lead Coordinator for TPTKC!
Her fave part of wedding days? All the First Looks - HANDS DOWN! She loves witnessing the raw & genuine emotion of intimate moments - whether between the couple, with a parent, or your pup.
Outside of weddings, you’ll find her at the gym lifting all the heavy things, having girls nights, spending time with family, or dancing the night away at a country music concert. And if you ever play "Kerosene" by Miranda Lambert, get ready for a karaoke performance!
On your wedding day, she'll just feel like an extra bestie in your wedding party...she fits right in!
Long story short - EVERYBODY LOVES PAX!
You'll never see Heather without the biggest smile on her face - one of the many reasons we love her!
Heather is a native to Chicago - where she started out in her wedding career. Two weeks after getting married in 2021, her and her husband made the move to KC to establish their own roots and she was on the hunt for a new planning company - quickly feeling like family with TPTKC!
Heather spends her weekdays as a 3rd grade teacher. She loves Disney, the color pink, and is the ultimate girl’s girl! If she's in the driver's seat, be prepared for her to belting out
Christmas music all year round! Her dream wedding to plan would be Disney or Star Wars Themed!
Her fave part of wedding days? Making you happy - which she'll go to the ends of the Earth to do.
If you're looking for the most contagious upbeat & positive spirit, this is your girl!
Our girl, Ali, is the ultimate team player - doing anything and everything she can to make your day a success! Whether that is assisting the Lead Coordinator with first looks, helping your grandmother find her seat, jumping in to help the florist finish up final touches on your arbor - she truly does whatever it takes to make your day the smoothest!
Outside of wedding days, you'll find her hanging out with friends and her boyfriend. Her favorite snack is ALL THE CHIPS AND DIPS and she is obsessed with candles!
She loves working in an industry that provides a creative work environment, with a variety of tasks to do. Her favorite part of the wedding day is when a bride looks in the mirror for the first time after her hair & makeup is all done and her dress is on - "that's when it all becomes real and you get to watch them soak in the first few moments as a bride!"
You'll typically see Daniela in the mornings on wedding days - not only responsible for placing your decor items, but leading the entire design vendor team to success! She manages the layout, orders decor, organizes TPT's rental inventory, and plans out every step of an efficient setup plan.
Daniela is originally from Ukraine & has a dream of snowboarding around the world. And if you're wondering what she dips her fries into - it's CFA Sauce every time! Outside of weddings, she is a pre-med college student and excels musically - most recently being named as Best Drum Major!
Her favorite part of working in the wedding industry is starting with a blank canvas and arranging pieces to make our couple's vision come true - and then watching them see it for the first time. "I'm filled with utter joy very time I see the reactions of our clients to our work on the event space."
When the bar closes down and the music fades, our girl Alaeyah is the one that comes in to pick up the pieces. Her upbeat and positive spirit is always a bright light for the team at the end of the day.
As a high school student, her favorite part of working with TPTKC is having positive female influences as team members & watching them explore their passions.
She is currently playing "Golden Hour" by JVKE on repeat & if she won the lottery, she would first go on a shoe shopping spree! On her bucket list is to travel to a tropical location out of the US.
The face behind all of TPTKC? Shahnia - the one who makes all of our jobs so much easier! She manages our a majority of our business processes - from contract to brand deals, from organizing our couple's vendor files to preparing training presentations for new team members.
*A helpful hint - her name rhymes with Tonya!*
Her favorite part of working with TPTKC is having a sisterhood. "It is such an accepting group of people who are immediately invested in your success - in and outside of TPTKC!"
Shahnia is originally from Ontario, Canada and has an intense fear of heights - no skydiving for this one! Outside of TPTKC, she works in the legal field & can often be found with her fiance, doing Pilates, or cuddling her cats - McFurry + Dilly.
If she had an at-bat song, she would walk up to, "Man, I Feel Like A Woman," by Shania Twain.
"I don't even know how to describe Taylor Paige and the experience and impact she made on myself, my husband, and our family. We were hesitant if we really needed a planner or decorator, but hiring her was the best and easiest decision we made. She is an absolute pleasure to work with and
I am actually sad that my time with her is over! You will not find
someone better - I was blown away!"
"As someone who is very organized and detail oriented myself, I originally didn’t think I needed a coordinator. However, a friend highly recommended Taylor so my fiancé and I hired her and BOY are we glad we did. Hands down the best decision we made in the entire wedding planning process. Taylor is a rare mix of methodical and the best hype woman you could ever want. There were multiple instances where she caught oversights on our end or on the vendor side (it can happen more easily than you think when there are 500 tiny details to keep track of!). Not only that, but Taylor is highly connected and well-respected in the wedding world and I didn’t realize how valuable those relationships were until we had to find a new photographer a month out from our wedding and she found a new one within 24 hours. Not to mention, her ability to negotiate and her attention to detail meant avoiding costs that we would have otherwise incurred because of our lack of knowledge and/or connections. Taylor is essentially the best insurance policy you can get for your wedding - she’s the first one to jump in if something goes wrong, and, really, she catches it before it even does. Not only that, but she knew exactly what to say when the nerves or stress were taking over and she truly made it the best day of our lives. If you were debating whether or not to hire Taylor, this is your sign to do it - and do it before she gets scooped up by someone else!!"
