IT ALL STARTED WHEN...
I wanted to meet clients in a place other than a coffee shop and get to actually know them before their big day in a way that is comfortable. These meetings happen a lot after work or during meal times on the weekends, so why not break bread together? Don't get me wrong, I love coffee, but (insert coffe shop here) is too much of a transitional space, and not a stay a while and have a good time place. I want the latter, plus free refills on drinks and chips is the stuff dreams are made of.
Tacos seemed like a natural place to go, it's a nationally recognized food with it's own day of the week, who doesn't love tacos? It's casual, lite, and there's always lots of options for people with dietary concerns.
SO WHAT IS TALK-OS?
Talk-os is when we go get tacos and talk about you, your relationship, whether you prefer coffee or wine, and who your favorite actor to play James Bond was before we get to the nitty gritty details of what your wedding day timeline will probably look like, how many hours of coverage will be best for what you have planned, before going over the contract. This experience can take a few hours. Like I said, I like to get to know my couples before we book to make sure that we will be a good match for each other on the big day. You don’t want to have second thoughts, or buyers’ remorse after the fact so this small investment of time over a meal lets us make sure that we are going to enjoy walking down the aisle together.
THAT SOUNDS GREAT, BUT WE LIVE REALLY FAR FROM MESA...
That's ok! I always try and find a new and exciting place to eat that falls in the middle of where we both live so neither of us has to bear the burden of an overly long commute.
THIS SOUNDS LIKE A GREAT TIME BUT I REALLY JUST DONT LIKE TACOS.
Liking tacos is NOT a requirement, we can go for burgers / salads / ice-cream / happy hour / samosas / sandwiches / etc... The point is to be in a place where we aren't rushed, we are comfortable talking to eachother, and we get to eat some delicious food, because if we decide not to work together, at least we got a great meal out of the experience and you know more of what you want from your vendors.
