Tara Raymundo discovered her love for planning weddings in 2006. It started with wedding shows, like Say Yes to the Dress, and she began researching all things wedding. A few of her friends and family became engaged over the following years and she assisted them in any way they needed her, sharpening her skills in time management, event design, and conflict resolution. By the time she got engaged in 2009, she thought she had it all figured out, but quickly discovered there was much more involved. Although there were stressful times along the way, she treated each new obstacle she was faced with as a learning experience and always kept grace under fire. She walked down the aisle with confidence that every detail was perfect and the vendors that were hired were professional, talented, and more than capable of executing her vision. After her wedding, she was convinced this was her calling and enrolled in the QC School of Wedding Planning and joined the esteemed Green Lily Weddings as an intern. With her certification complete and internship coming to an end, she decided to fulfill another life-long passion of being a business owner and created Jour L'Amour in 2011.
