we call ourselves the dream team
Founded in 2010, Taryn Blake Events is a modern wedding planning and design company proud to call York, PA home. We have a well-established reputation in the industry, recognized as a company “Revolutionizing the Wedding Industry” by Forbes, voted “Best in York” by Susquehanna Style, and with work and expertise featured in national outlets such as Bridal Guide, Huffington Post, The Knot, WeddingWire and more. Taryn also provides industry education, speaking to students at York College of PA, teaching at local wedding events, and doing one-on-one coaching for small business owners.
With a seamless blend of organization and creativity, we are known for taking the monotony out of weddings and providing couples and guests alike with unforgettable experiences. We’ve earned our stripes after almost a decade in industry, and have a been-there-done-that mentality to take on any event challenge with ease. Our street-smarts mixed with refreshing, realistic transparency throughout the planning process has earned us multiple industry accolades and awards. To be frank - we do what’s best for our clients - easy as that.
We work locally in PA - from York to Philadelphia and beyond, and regionally into neighboring states (MD, DE, NY, etc). A true differentiator, we specialize in helping out of town couples plan weddings from a distance. With processes and tools designed to aid in a smooth planning process, no matter your location, we’ve worked with couples across the US and from Canada, Australia and Brazil — all planning weddings in the PA area.
