Who is Preoccupied Bride?
Hi there! My name is Maya Devassy Tarach, and I am the owner of and original Preoccupied Bride. 🙂 I bring the calm to every wedding I plan and manage. My creative nature and skills as a former project manager—an insanely organized and detail-obsessed planner, stickler for deadlines and communicator enthusiast—made wedding and event planning extra appealing to me, but it was planning my Indian-Polish wedding from start to finish in 2016 that sealed the deal.
If planning your wedding feels out of your realm of experience and you’re overwhelmed with all of the tasks and details involved, let’s talk! My goal is to help you prepare as much as possible before your wedding and make sure everything goes right on your wedding day, so you can enjoy one of the most special days of your life.
My couples enjoy working with me because of my professionalism, expertise, detailed organization, kind attitude and forthright demeanor about their ideas, design and wedding budget.
On a More Personal Note
I love traveling – Iceland & Maldives were two of my exciting visits in 2019.
I have a huge sweet tooth – Homemade cinnamon rolls & cookie skillets…enough said.
I am a gym rat – Spin & bodypump are my exercises to offset my sweet tooth.
Cooking is a recent hobby to try to balance out my sweet tooth (Can you tell it’s a problem?) – Cauliflower fried rice and homemade pizza are some of my go-to recipes.
I love listening to crime podcasts – I am obsessed with Crime Junkie.
I enjoy a good cocktail – Blackberry bourbon lemonade is a current favorite.
I will stay up all night to finish reading a book if I’m hooked – A good mystery-thriller is my preferred genre.
My Outlook on Wedding Planning
This may be difficult to read, but it must be clear to any couple looking into my wedding planning services: Things can and will go wrong on your wedding day, BUT it’s important to remember the big picture. If you get married on your wedding day, that is, you and your partner get to recite your love and vows to each other—your wedding is an automatic success. Nothing, not even all the wedding details you’ve planned for months on end, is more important than sealing the love between you and your partner through the life-long commitment of marriage.
If you two can keep this outlook in mind throughout the wedding planning process and not let the details cloud the reason why you’re getting married in the first place, I am certain I can help you plan, in whatever capacity you like, your dream wedding!
