How We Work
A TSE event is a team effort and we use all of our resources to ensure you have the best experience. Our founder Trish Simitakos personally works on each event ensuring you have all the support needed to make the experience flawless.
Our core value is based on Service. We do what it takes to do it right.
Below are our three most popular packages that can easily be tailored to weddings, corporate dinners and galas, birthday parties, product launches, conferences, retirement celebrations or other special events. All rates are custom tailored to your specific needs and agreed upon before we get started. We love surprise parties, not surprise invoices.
1. Focused Assistance
Has your event or meeting become too large a task for your organization to bear alone? The TSE team can be the perfect outside set(s) of hands to aid your team on a by-event basis.
The Focused Assistance package is best suited for corporate clients with pre-established concepts looking to offload specific elements of the meeting and production project plan.
What You Can Expect:
We can help you identify the specific area of focus that will help you the most, including but not limited to:
- Organizing and managing attendance and RSVPs
- Coordinating check-in or registration
- Assisting with sponsor acquisition and management
- Sourcing vendors or venues
- Volunteer management
We will sit down with you to outline the scope of work and provide a projected number of hours to complete our part as it complements your team’s work.
2. The Closer
Closer (n): a senior or experienced person experienced in closing difficult deals.
Now let’s apply that definition to your event:
Have you secured many of the vendors you need, but not all? Do you need help organizing what you have booked so far, making sense of your vision, identifying gaps and issues, and then providing the service needed to complete the day?
Then this partial planning package is for you!
What You Can Expect:
- A review of your existing work on the event (social or corporate) to this point
- Identifying the key items still need to be completed
- Designing a plan to complete all remaining logistical details
- A proven team of professionals to see your event through until the final cleanup has happened!
3. The All-Inclusive
This package is for those who have for the feeling or mood they want to capture at their event, but want (or need) someone else to bring it to life from conception to design, vendor sourcing and full implementation.
With this package you get Trish’s personal attention and full access to all of our vendor and team resources to make your wedding, dinner party, fundraiser or meeting what you envision.
What You Can Expect:
- An event designed to work within your vision and financial expectations
- Access to all our of professional tools, contacts and resources to make sure every detail and concept is fulfilled to your satisfaction.

Overall it comes down to this: we do the legwork and you enjoy both the planning process and your event. Simple as that!
Her attention to detail was lifesaving…
I first met Patricia when she planned a very special birthday party for me in NYC. Her attention to detail was life saving and her niche for finding the perfect location was breathtaking. Everyone had a wonderful time that night and the memories have lasted on.
That is what I think [she] does best with the events she plans: creating memories that people will talk about for years to come.
She was incredibly responsive and very engaged in our planning process.
Our wedding was at the Winery at Bull Run in October 2013. We could not have been happier. One of the biggest reasons for that was our coordinator, Patricia… she is incredible!!
She made our entire process so simple and she was on top of every detail. She provided guidance and advice to help us make our decisions, but always highlighted that our wedding was for us and she was willing to make anything happen. She was incredibly responsive and very engaged in our planning process. Thank you Patricia!
5 stars all the way!
Five stars all the way. Patricia worked with us for about a year to make my daughter’s wedding flawless. Our guests had only to nod and someone was there to take care of their needs.
Patricia was professional, responsive, and provided superb customer service
To say that I was impressed would be an understatement. From the initial proposal process, to the tasting, site walk-through, ongoing communications, and day-of execution, they knocked it out of the park.
Patricia was professional, responsive, and provided superb customer service and consultation. She always made us feel that we were her #1 priority. Guests are still raving about how elegant everything turned out.
Without hesitation, I would recommend to any bride-to-be, and frankly, to anyone looking to have an event planned with class.
Patricia is an event planner extraordinaire!
Patricia is an event planner extraordinaire. She is an amazing organizer who truly can create a successful fundraiser/party/event. She has wonderful connections and exemplary taste.
She remains calm and unruffled in the most difficult of situations–a joy to work with. I highly recommend her.
Patricia went above and beyond…
The best part of [our wedding] was finding Patricia Simitakos. From day number one, she was there with me every step of the way. Always available for my questions, concerns, my two tastings and EVERYTHING!! She made the whole experience pleasant and easier. Patricia went above and beyond and was extremely accommodating throughout the entire process as well. Never pushy, went at my pace 100% of the time.

She understood my vision and offered great suggestions to add to it.
I cannot say enough. From the very beginning of the planning process was wonderful. She understood my vision and offered great suggestions to add to it. Patricia handled our day-of planning and was fantastic. She was responsive and flexible. She and the staff (along with the Winery at Bull Run) set up everything beautifully and were great during the whole day. I highly recommend!!
