You wouldn't want to have the photographer go to the wrong location due to a miscommunication or have the cater serve dinner late thus costing you venue overage charges or have a friend or cherished family member miss out on your celebration because they were too busy working your wedding. Our Day of Wedding Coordinators actually start working for you weeks in advance by completing telephone conferences regarding your specific desires, confirming all your vendors, completing a venue walk through and floor plan suggestions. They do everything from the collection and placement of items such as favors, centerpieces, place cards, table numbers, guest book, toasting flutes, etc. They greet vendors and ensure you receive contracted deliveries in a timely manor, oversee that the DJ or MC is cuing activities properly and on time, make sure special family members are present for activities (cake cutting, photos, toasts, etc), distribute final payment and gratuities to proper vendors, pack up your personal belongings, over see venue clean up to ensure you get your deposit back. We welcome your inquiries and look forward to assisting you with your once in a lifetime event.
