I wish I were getting married again just so that I can work alongside this AMAZING team again! No request, dream, or whim was too big, daunting, or impossible for Karly. Since day one, she made sure our big day would be special and our wedding could not have been more perfect! I wasn't sure at the beginning if I would want a wedding planner, and hands down, it was the best decision ever!!! Team Tableau took all my worries, stress, and cares away and made sure our wedding weekend ran smoothly! I definitely recommend anyone getting married in Northern Michigan to book Tableau Events! You'll have the most amazing wedding with a dream team!!!

Karly and her team went above and beyond to make not only our wedding but the entire planning process such a delight! Creatively, Karly was willing to do anything I suggested, but also contributed such key design ideas as well. I would highly recommend using her for full wedding planning services. She put us at ease with her planning calendar and targeted meetings leading up to our wedding. She navigated the challenge of getting married on a car-less island seamlessly, and her and her team made numerous trips to the venue in the week leading up to the wedding. Since she was there every step of the way, she really was able to execute everything during our wedding weekend, and we were just there to enjoy it! Thank you Karly for making our dream wedding, and wedding weekend happen! Xo

Tableau pulled off the wedding of our dreams at the Inn at Bay Harbor in Northern Michigan. This was a destination wedding as my (now) husband and I live in LA so we needed a planner who would meet with vendors, keep us informed, and project manage all the moving pieces. Not only was it great to work with Karly to find the vendors that best fit us in the area but also throughout the year of planning/organizing and the day of. I would recommend Karly & the team at Tableau for all brides those who need full wedding planning support a year out to those who need the month of coordination.


Hiring Tableau was the best decision I have ever made! They worked with me on the planning of my two weddings: first my pre-COVID wedding and then my COVID wedding. Karly (owner/lead-planner) was not only my wedding planner but therapist during this whole process. She talked me through all the changes and in the end everything went perfectly. She changed all our vendors, re-booked for our 2021 wedding, and planned a new wedding in 2 months. She always made me feel like everything was under control and I didn't need to worry - which is important for a Type A/control freak person like myself. The wedding day was completely seamless thanks to Karly and her team... I would work with Tableau again for any event!


Thank you SO much for the beautiful wedding!! It was beyond our expectations and it went so smoothly all due to your attention to detail and expertise! We all had such a wonderful time and can’t thank you enough for making the whole process such an enjoyable experience.

Karly & her team did an amazing job on the tent décor at my daughters wedding at Hotel Walloon, it was so beautiful & looked exactly as we had discussed. She was great to work with & even accommodated additional requests that are typically done by a florist. The communication was excellent. If you are looking for perfection look no further!!! Do not hesitate to hire Tableau Events. Thank you Karly for turning our vision into reality & making the space so beautiful.

Mother of the Bride

I want to thank you and your team for the most amazing weekend! As you know, I do events for a living, and I can honestly say you made everything go as smoothly as it could possibly go. There are no words to explain how well you executed the vision I saw for my wedding. There was not one person that came up to me that didn't comment on every detail that you not only properly executed, but made a fantasy. I know first hand how hard it is to keep on schedule with a smile on your face, especially with my friends, but your team did it in the most professional way. You all did an amazing job! You all definitely receive my stamp of approval ten times. Sending my love back in NYC!!!

Karly did a wonderful job working with me over 18 months in the planning and execution of my son's wedding at the Inn at Bay Harbor. Navigating through covid, with not just one, but three different wedding dates, Karly was calm and professional, communicating changes to all of our vendors. She helped to ensure that the day was perfect for my son and daughter in law, helping them with even some special last minute surprise additions to the celebration. I'm very pleased and grateful that I decided to work with Karly to make this such a special and memorable occasion

Mother of the Groom

Connecting with Karly and hiring her for our event was one of the BEST DECISIONS we made! She was amazing and easy to communicate with, was patient, full of ideas and passionate about her job. . . . . She went above and beyond for my wife and I and we can't thank her enough. She made our wedding magical. She is worth every penny. We received compliment after compliment about her work and how incredible her work was. Don't hesitate to hire Karly and her team! She is the best of the best of the best!
