Meet the Team


Hello! My name is Tammy Washington-owner and lead planner/designer based out of North Carolina. My love of event designing began in 2006 at the Art Institute of Charlotte where I received a degree in Interior Design. Not only do my designs reflect the personality of my clients, but I also ensure that both your vision and your events receive my undivided attention. I have been in the event industry for nearly 13 years and I wouldn’t have it any other way! Since its inception in 2008, Inspired by Design has been a part of many extraordinary celebrations, and no matter what you choose, we ensure it harmonizes with the theme of your event.

I absolutely love what I do and that is visible in my tastefully curated design and decor. As your day-of coordinator, I make sure that every aspect of your wedding goes according to plan. With creativity at the center of all I do, I feel more drawn towards meaningful decor coupled with fine details. I believe that purpose of any event is not served until it evokes emotion and a dash of intimacy.
Whether a wedding ceremony, anniversary, or baby shower, the idea is to create moments that stay etched in the heart forever. In my quest to leave a lasting impression on your guests, I am here to help you make your next celebration or social event as incredible as you have imagined it!

“Be faithful to your own taste, because nothing you really like is ever out of style.”
