Tammy Contreraz, Fairytale Europe Weddings

I am an American wedding & event manager who has a love for all things European. I have had the amazing opportunity to work for some wonderful European tech companies in the last six years. However, I got my start in weddings. 

 

I started my career quite by accident. At the age of 17, while I was beginning my degree in Marketing. I was asked to research vendors for a wedding and ended up coordinating the whole shebang. I was hooked!  That led to learning everything I could about weddings and event planning and I began my career full speed ahead. I began coordinating weddings and by the age of 20 I had opened a full-service bridal shop.


In the mid 90's I moved to Hawaii and found a niche market in destination weddings, where I created a team and managed hundreds of events over the years. That eventually led to a transition into corporate event planning and I

found corporate events to be a whole different beast from the weddings I had been managing, but enjoyed each one immensely. However, I made the decision to take a break from weddings to learn the ropes of the corporate world better and put my marketing degree to fuller use.


Then came the world of technology: Microsoft, Heroku, Salesforce, nearForm, Snyk and many startups. From producing and managing tech conferences to creating marketing teams and managing everything in between, I love the ever changing climate and helping startups grow and leading a team that excels at what they do! I've had the amazing opportunity to travel the world and spent 3 years living in Ireland, a short time in Sweden, and now Belgium, working for a startup, and producing my own tech conference.

I fell in love with and in Bruges and couldn't imagine anywhere else I'd rather be. Today, I make my  home in Bruges, working with couples to create their fairytale destination weddings throughout Europe and still work on some tech projects as well.  I work with some incredible wedding professionals throughout Europe and have my own team based in Bruges.

I truly love what I do and when you love what you do....it's no longer work! I look forward to chatting with you and meeting you in person! 

Happy Planning & Warm Wishes,

Tammy
