What's your background, education and training?

We have been in the events industry for over 40 years with Open Aire Affairs hitting that 20 years mark in itself.

What is your typical process for working with a new client?

We typically start with a intro email & based on their needs recommend one of our venues to have a personal tour. Getting your venue in place makes all the other planning pieces fall into place.

What advice would you give a client looking to find a provider in your specialty?

We always ask clients what the wow-factor they want their guests to react too when arriving to their event. May it be beautiful gardens, a historic mansion or maybe a art museum to walk through. We have it all!

We really enjoy the behind-the-scenes factor of events. Seeing a mood board come to life & bringing all those pieces together for a clients really makes us smile.

A hug at the end of the night saying it was the best wedding.

What makes your business stand apart?

We were married at Tyler Gardens this passed year. We absolutely LOVED the venue but we were worried about rain or other inclement weather. Open Aire and Tyler Gardens handled everything and put our minds at ease with multiple options. Our guests raved about the venue as well as the food. Start to finish, everything was as we hoped and more.

This venue and staff are amazing. My wife and I got married there over the past weekend and it was the most perfect day ever. We had such an amazing team that helped us throughout the whole process. Rae and Amanda are the best and this day wouldn’t have been what it was without them. We booked with them back in June of 2017 and they were there for us every step of the way. If you are looking for an outdoor garden wedding then this is the perfect spot to pick. They will do everything that they can to make sure you dream comes true.

Rae Chani Wilson from Open Aire Affairs was with us every step of the way. She handles tons of weddings every year and still made Adam and I feel like we were her only, and favorite, client. She was excited about our chosen wedding theme and instantly began offering ideas for rentals, decor, and things we could include to make things interesting for our guests. Rae graciously offered to show us different potential sites for our wedding at our convenience and reminded us when venues were hosting open houses. Any time I had a question about a site; timing, cost, colors, whatever, Rae got it for me at lightning speed. She coordinated meetings between my vendors and worked with them to arrange whatever rentals or special accommodations they needed. Rae even took the time to walk my photographer around our chosen site and show him all of the best places for beautiful pictures. At the rehearsal and the day of the wedding Rae was our point girl. Corralling and keeping our large wedding party in line and assisting all of us with whatever we needed. Any questions, Rae answered them. Any issues, Rae resolved them. Something or someone missing? Rae found it/them. She was a blast to work with, enthusiastic, tireless, and confident. She was there the instant she was needed while somehow still staying in the shadows, letting everyone enjoy the day. Rae did everything in her power to make things easy and more affordable for us. She even canceled an extra tent we had ordered for the possibility of rain, when the morning of the wedding turned out clear. I cannot thank or recommend her enough. Thank you Rae! You, more than anyone, helped make our day the vision of perfection it was! – Janet K. 9.4.16
