Ms. Tye was amazing. The details to every little thing. She definitely took the stress off of us. She went above and beyond for our wedding. I would HIGHLY recommend Ms. Tye to do your wedding.

Testimony from the bride (Bobbi Embers)

I would like to start off by saying, TB you are an angel in designer shoes and clothes! God took Monique home to be with Him and in that process of celebrating her life we run across each other. I hadn't seen you or talked to you since Monique's graduation. Then a week later as Bobbi and i get off the plane from traveling to Washington state, our wedding planner calls and quits on us. As Bobbi starts to cry and get upset, I said" Lord only you can take grief and turn it into triumph!" I texted you and asked if we could call you when we got home and you responded sure. The rest is history! Tye you are the Michael Jordan of wedding planners!! I thank you from the bottom of my heart of how you jumped in and took charge! My wife felt no stress through the process and that was All because of God and you! I couldn't have asked for a better wedding or reception. May God bless you over and over in everything you touch!

After 20 years in the ministry and having officiated dozens of weddings, it was a refreshing experience to work with a true professional Wedding Planner such as Ms. Tye Barnett. She was thoughtful, respectful, personable and timely. I highly recommend her.

Embers Wedding April 2024 (Wichita, KS)

No stress Wedding planning, Brides Secret weapon Tye added a breath of fresh air to the entire wedding planning and execution. The weight that Tye lifted off of the Bride and Grooms shoulders was obvious. From a DJ’s perspective, Tye really was on point with eliminating any down time. The guests never had to wait as the nights events evolved. Tye’s communication before and during the wedding resulted in a happy Bride and Groom. My favorite part, Tye’s flexibility and her superpower of working under pressure. She makes it look effortless. I would love to work with her again.

She was there for everything and I needed all the way to the last minute of the night. She help me save money on my party favors? and also relieve stressed all stress for my mother.

It was an absolute pleasure working with Ms. Tynisha Barnett. I hired "A Stepp Above Weddings and Events" for my book release party. If I had to give a rating from 1 through 10, I would without a doubt give a 10, because the service was beyond my expectations. I would recommend Ms. Barnett of A Stepp Above Weddings and Event to anyone who's looking for an event planner that is detailed-oriented, result-driven, self-motivated and professional. What I like the most about working with Ms. Barnett is that I didn't have to micromanage the event, before I could ask, it was already done. I was blown away by her level of professionalism.

It was such a pleasure working with Tynisha from A Stepp Above Weddings and Events! She contacted Sweet Seats to assist with a wedding and from the moment she reached out until the conclusion of the event, she was professional, pleasant, focused on details, and committed to ensuring every aspect of her client's event that involved us was communicated extremely well. I can't thank her enough for all of her hard work and for advocating not only for the client, but for the vendors as well. Kudos for a beautiful and very well executed event!

When I was told that having my dream wedding was not possible due to my budget, Tye and her team stepped in, encouraged me to stay positive and gave me a glimpse of what my wedding could be like (based off my own vision). On that day, it was even better than what I could have imagined! She was an essential part of that day and made it so special for my husband and I. Thank you for caring and being so detailed. It was a moment I will hold close always!

We were able to enjoy our wedding without any stress or concerns. My wife's vision was transformed into reality and it was exactly what I wanted too! Majority of the purchases were used and looked great together thanks to this creative team!

She is funny, witty with a great personality. I would say she has thick skin, because I'm a tough bride and known to wreck peoples nerves. But she hasn't given up on me yet.

Tye, What a pleasure it was working with you at the Stanley House! As a coordinator, your organization skills were exemplary and you thought through and planned for every contingency. The end result was a flawless execution of a beautiful wedding and reception. But, it is your personality that makes you shine as an event coordinator. You have that perfect balance of a take charge attitude tempered with patience and tolerance. Your bride felt like a queen and was able to relax and enjoy herself knowing that everything was taken care of according to her wishes.

Tye I would like to thank you for all the work you did to make the wedding turn out superb, I have photographed lots of weddings, but you are the best coordinator that I have had the pleasure to work with, your work is second to none. I liked the way that you laid out the plans for the wedding and the reception. Thanks again for making my job easy. 

Willie Davis- Photographer

An excellent job you did in helping the beautiful couple plan and have a blessed and wonderful day! I really enjoyed the wedding and the reception. The love story, the singers and the kiss at the end was the hit for me. The groom seems to be romantic and sincere in caring for his lady, and she the same for him. The dances and the fun they all had was great! The food and cake was delicious! Praise God for their blessed wedding day! Peace and Blessings in Jesus Name, Delia Bates

Even the thought that you sent an email at the end of Eric and Ashley's day...rather night, says soooooo much about how the Lord is working through you and using this gift to be a blessing and show forth His standard of excellence. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I look forward to working with you again, especially on the Golden wedding with April and Antonio next June. Until then, may the Lord richly bless, favor and keep you and all that you put your hands to and may He continue to use you to show forth His Glory and show forth His standard of excellence, in Jesus' name!!! At your service and in His.
