our beliefs



I believe in being poised and professional even in the most chaotic situations.



No matter how much you plan, there is always something unplanned that arises, so all things should be met with grace.



I believe in building relationships and getting to know my clients.

Talema’s skill, patience and follow through is beyond top notch.

When I first saw the banquet room my heart smiled so brightly! The pictures do not even do justice to seeing this in person! Beyond beautiful. The flowers, the colors, the arrangements, the design, everything was exquisite! Just had to make myself pause and officially thank Talema for the fantastic and totally amazing job you all did pulling everything together so seamlessly and with such poise and professionalism. 

I truly can't say enough good things about our experience. 

Noir Blanc Events was essential to bringing our vision to fruition. They helped me check off the things I needed prior to the wedding, helped with vendors, offered helpful ideas, and we're an overall watchful eye. I felt confident and comfortable in relinquishing control. The day of felt like it flew by, but the whole bridal party knew who to turn to for questions. I truly can't say enough good things about our experience and I proudly recommend Noir Blanc Events to any bride to be!

Her attention to detail and knowledge of the industry is inspiring and her peaceful demeanor will allow you to take a breath and relax. 

Booking with Talema Rice was the best decision we could have made for our 90 day wedding and we wouldn’t have chosen anyone else to make our day special.
