Jesus catered Courtney & Spencer's wedding for 140 people and the food and service was amazing!! The only thing I was concerned about was being late as I read 1 or 2 out of 100+ reviews about being a little late (things happen!) and they were actually 45 minutes early!! As mentioned in prior reviews, the food was excellent and there was a TON of it left over. I knew there would be but we weren't prepared for how much was left, we could have fed another 25+people! The only other semi-negative review I read was that if you're a control freak, you will have to deal with communicating by e-mail...I'm a total control freak & Jesus always answered any questions I had within a very timely manner. They have you come to their home on a Friday evening where they always have tastings so you get to go over what dishes you would like & talk at length w/Jesus and that is how we chose them, between the 99% 5* reviews and then tasting the food...DECISION MADE!! A decision we don't regret one bit and you cannot beat the price! Also, we had several vegetarians attending so we asked for fish to be available for fish tacos (grilled red sea bass) & a vegan dish...again, they accommodated us and we heard raving reviews. Give up the control & let Jesus and his crew do the rest, you will NOT be disappointed! Manuel, his son, was the one that arrived w/crew & he was so polite as was his crew. Awesome service & food!

Jacynda, Nicole and Madison helped me and my girls get ready for my wedding. Jacynda did all of our makeup and Nicole and Madison did our hair. They arrived right on time, were super professional and very patient. My little sister gets really bad motion sickness and was ill a lot of the morning from her car ride and the ladies were super understanding and accommodating. When my sister needed a breather, one of us would hop in her chair and they would switch gears until she was ready to finish. We had to start hair and make up super early in the day because they had another booking, and for the most part everyone's hair held up with the exception of those who had curls - if you are starting early but your wedding is late, make sure everyone has a complete updo. My hair held up ALL NIGHT but my sister's curls and the curls for the flower girls fell flat even with all the product they put in it. It's just the reality of curls (and little girls). I didn't know what style my sister had chosen for the flower girls hair and if I had I would have insisted on updo's myself. I was caught off guard when I learned during my trial that they don't provide lip color since they can't give everyone a lipstick to touch up later in the day. But it made sense and I went out and bought some long lasting lipsticks for my girls. I was pleasantly surprised when Jacynda arrived with lipsense samples for all of my girls on the wedding day! We each got to choose what color we wanted and were given the samples for touch ups as needed. After a few kissing pictures during our first look, I was grateful for the touch-up kit they provided. Overall, I was super happy with how everyone's makeup turned out and absolutely loved that Nicole was able to work with my notoriously heavy hair. I highly recommend this team!

We found DJ T-Roc for our wedding recetion through Thumbtack two weeks before the wedding. Regardless of the short time for preparation, he was above and beyond with his service. He was very professional, and just with very few songs we suggested, he was able to play the songs we love during the whole duration of the reception. I would definitely recommend him to others and use his service in the future if needed.

Sara provided excellent service for wedding day makeup for myself and the bridesmaids. She offered a makeup trial and took the time to make sure we had the perfect look. She is quick to respond to messages. The range of hair and makeup looks she can do is vast. She helped make my wedding day preparation seamless with her quick work and calm demeanor. She was so helpful. I recommend her for weddings or any special event you may have!

Shawna is AMAZING!!!! She came and hosted a dinner for 6 of us for my wife’s 30th bday. I should start from the beginning, but I have to say that her chocolate cake she made was PHENOMENAL!!!!! She made some amazing passed appetizers for us, followed by a perfectly cooked chicken dinner with enough for everyone to be full! She was so professional, so fun, even got a few hilarious jabs in on my friends! I would recommend her 10x over to anyone! Thanks for a perfect birthday dinner for my wife Shawna!

Seriously- Best. DJ. Ever. Peter DJd our wedding last weekend and it was absolutely amazing! He met with us a few times before our event and we even went through song lists so he could get a feel of what type of music we liked and did not like. On the day of, he was incredible from the start of the ceremony all the way to the end of the reception. He followed the crowd and kept playing the music that made everyone dance- and when the crowd needed a little "pick me up" HE DELIVERED. He was way more than a DJ and I will always highly recommend him to anybody that asks. Thank you, Peter, for making our day absolutely perfect!

Palo and Alex were our wedding videographers and put together an amazing edit! It was super easy working with them leading up to our big day and the day-of. They're fun people and got along well with our photographers and other vendors. We received our deliverables ( + raw footage) within reasonable amount of times. HIGHLY recommend them for any wedding. Your wedding day really is a blur, and we were more than happy with our decision to go with Palo to capture all the feels of the day/night.

We chose Wasio Photography for our wedding, and I am SO happy with that decision. Not only are Yaneck and Sasha an absolute pleasure to work with, but the pictures from our engagement, wedding, and even post-wedding sessions are phenomenal. The level of professionalism and dedication to their work is very obvious, and I highly recommend Wasio Photography. One of the few tangible things we got to keep from our wedding was the pictures, and I couldn't be happier with the images we received from Wasio.

Chaplain Dawn makes this such an easy process for any couple who is totally new to the wedding scene! She met with us beforehand to ask any personal details we might want in the ceremony, and she did a wonderful job of incorporating them! Also awesome for accommodating a non religious request. We ended up going with exactly what Dawn wrote, with no changes at all, because it was perfect! When I, the bride, starting crying during our vows, she gave me a little "you got this" and that was so sweet. So so happy we went with Dawn, and highly recommend her services to anyone looking!

Phoebe did such an amazing job on my hair and makeup for my 1920s themed wedding, we didn’t even do a trial run before. I was able to show her my dress and explain to her what I wanted and she delivered. I normally do my own makeup for everything since I love makeup, but I’m so glad I decided to get it done. I’m still continuing to get compliments on my look. I definitely would recommend her for your bridal needs!

Just called up DJ Mark to arrange music plans for our wedding reception. He was open, kind, fun to talk to and above all interested in tailoring his work to our vision. He is professional and I can already tell he will be punctual (hence I chose that option, too). He even offered to go to the venue ahead of time to arrange things there so that the event will run as smoothly as possible. Looking forward to continuing to work with DJ Mark leading up to our big day!

We loved working with DJLatina! She showed up super early to set up, gave us a great rate because we were on a budget, used both English and Spanish to communicate with all of our guests and played the BEST songs! No one left the dance floor all night! She went above and beyond, by allowing us to even use her projector screen for sign language videos that were interpreted! Would definitely work with her again... thanks for making my friends’ wedding so special and memorable!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is a videographer and what do they do?

A videographer professionally films weddings and other events and edits the footage to create film keepsakes or marketing materials for their clients. Wedding videographers record all the key elements of your wedding day, ceremony and reception, and then edit the hours of film during post-production to make a wedding video, social media highlight reels, and any other film features you choose. Wedding videography captures, in live action, your vows, the cake-cutting, the first dance, reception toasts, the decor, the guests and all the details of your day. Many wedding videographers also interview guests (based on an interview list provided by the couple) and incorporate the recorded responses into the wedding video. Event videography typically costs less than wedding videography, as events are shorter with less detail. The national average cost for event videography is $500-$760, while the national average cost for wedding videography is $990-$1,260. A videographer usually does not need to be licensed, but it is important to confirm they have insurance and good standing in the business community, as well as good client reviews. A great majority of the work happens during post-production. The pros watch and blend together the hours of footage they took (sometimes from multiple cameras) to capture the story of your wedding day or event.

What does a wedding event coordinator do?

Pulling off a large, complex wedding or an elegant, small affair requires juggling myriad details, including the officiant, food, drink, wedding cake, entertainment, transportation, rehearsal dinner, photography, equipment rentals, venue reservations and more. A wedding event coordinator can help you keep track of these details, overseeing the planning process and managing everything on the day of your wedding. Each wedding coordinator (and wedding) is different, but in general you can expect an event coordinator to:

  • Help you devise a realistic wedding budget and hold your vendors to it.
  • Map out a master plan that includes all of the details including ceremony music, favors, the guest book and more.
  • Suggest ceremony and reception locations that fit your wedding size, budget and vision.   
  • Suggest florists, photographers, bands, caterers and other vendors that fit your budget.
  • Negotiate vendor contracts for the best deals.
  • Create a timeline for the day of the wedding that includes each vendor and member of your wedding party.
  • Mail invitations and track RSVPs.
  • Answer questions about wedding etiquette and current wedding trends.
  • Manage the wedding day from supervising vendors and setup to handling last-minute emergencies.

How do you find a good caterer?

Reviews, interviews and menu tastings will help you find the right catering choice for your big day. Start by screening possible wedding caterers based on past reviews. If a caterer you are interested in has a review that concerns you, ask them about it; how they respond will be very telling. Next, ask about their availability for your wedding date.

If the wedding caterer is available on your date, it’s time to talk about menus and prices. Be clear about what your maximum budget is find out what choices this will allow you. Caterers may custom-create a menu for your event, or they may have menu templates within different price ranges that can guide your decision. A clear budget gives the caterer clear parameters within which to work and offer creative suggestions. Schedule a menu tasting to confirm you love your wedding menu. Once you have a menu and date, and have paid a deposit to reserve the caterer’s services, confirm additional details including when the food will be delivered to the site, what kind of service will be provided, how many servers will be onsite and for how long, and who is responsible for setup and cleanup. The more specific your contract, the fewer worries you’ll have on your wedding day. Get more smart hiring tips here.

What is a wedding planner?

A wedding planner is a professional service provider whose job it is to organize and execute all the details of a couple’s wedding. A wedding planner can be contracted at any stage in the wedding planning process to help to any degree the couple is willing to pay for. Wedding planning is similar to event planning in that a planning team handles the coordination of multiple wedding elements including catering, venue, guests, entertainment, decor, transportation and more. Anyone who has ever been involved in a wedding can confirm that wedding planning is hard work. Experience brings wisdom when it comes to avoiding or resolving day-of challenges. There is no legal regulatory body that oversees or certifies wedding planning as an industry. Anyone who chooses can call themselves a wedding planner. When looking for a wedding planner, be sure to read reviews, and make smart hiring decisions by asking about licenses and insurance.

How do you choose a wedding videographer?

A wedding videographer will create a lifetime memory for you from edited video footage of your wedding day, ceremony and reception. Choosing a wedding videographer starts with looking online at portfolios of their past work. There’s no need to talk to anyone unless you love what you see. Next, make sure they have good reviews and past client experience; don’t be shy about asking for references if there aren’t any posted online. When you find someone who has a style you love, ask if they are available on your wedding day. If so, it’s time to talk pricing. Be clear about your maximum budget, and ask what kind of packages they offer. Pricing will depend on the number of crew needed for filming, the hours they are required to be onsite, post-production editing, and the length of the final product. Talk with several wedding videographers to get a feel for what prices are like in your region. Nationally, the average cost for wedding videography ranges between $990 and $1,260 per event. Once you agree on a product and have a plan, get everything in a written and signed contract. Clearly state the details of what is expected for your wedding day and from the final product. Be prepared to pay a deposit to reserve their services for the day, then pay the remainder upon receiving the video.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
