Mayra did the wedding makeup for myself, my maid of honor and mom. She did such a beautiful job. She traveled to us and was very professional and friendly. I was very happy with her work. I also found her to be very reasonably priced.

Lawrence provided both videography and photography services for our wedding. He worked really hard, putting in extra hours, and delivering to us tremendous value at a very reasonable cost. He did all of this while barely being noticed throughout our wedding. Anyone getting married should certainly consider Lawrence!

Pastor John provided exceptional and professional personalized service on our Wedding Day. He provided great assistance and suggestions in the preparation of the vows and the overall planning of the service. He even attended a pre-ceremony to help us prepare for our Big Day. We couldn't have chosen a better person to work with. He even provided assistance months after the ceremony when we were unable to locate our wedding certificate, by sending another copy right away. I highly recommend Pastor John's Personalized Weddings.

My husband and I are extremely happy that we picked Sybex Studios to do our photography and filming of our wedding day. Another added benefit of hiring Sybex Studios is that we got our first photo booth hiring from them. Killing 3 birds with one stone. Best decision From the first email up until our wedding day and even afterwards Reuben was very easy to communicate with and extremely knowledgeable about his craft. Quick to respond to any queries I had and offered suggestions. Especially helpful was being allowed to pay in instalments up until the wedding day. On our wedding day, Reuben and his team were professional and friendly and during the ceremony discreet. The pictures and video clip of our wedding day were absolutely amazing! Our guests had a fantastic day with the photobooth. I would recommend Reuben and his team at Sybex Studios to everyone!

Finding wedding photography and videography was so hard and not to mention expensive. A friend told me about thumbtack, so I figured I'll give it a try and am sure glad I did. Shelia was so helpful and very informative about everything. She is so professional at all times . I told her my budget and she stuck rite to it and threw in some extra things for me. She offers beautiful engagement photos which turned out beautiful. We went to the Japanese Tea Garden in Harward , CA, and it was absloutely beautiful. On the day Of our wedding Shelia and Pam Were there early. They got pictures of the wedding set up, tables , flowers, cake, etc.. Shelia got pictures of everything I asked for. From the beginning to the end. And the most important she got some great shots of all the kids before they got all dirty it was beautiful. After the wedding Shelia got back to me in a week with all the pictures we had to pick threw, once we made our choices she put them in a beautiful album and sent them rite out us. I would recommend Shelia services to anyone looking for a professional and hard working photographer who takes pride in her work and making sure your needs are met on your special day. Thanks Shelia It turly was a pleasure! Sincerely Mr. & Mrs. De'Monta & Yolanda Hichks

Anne came directly to our home to do our makeup for my brother's wedding, and was there on time(totally liked her professionalism)! My mom did a natural smokey eye look, and she looked amazing! I did a little more of a daring, sultry, smokey look and I got compliments all day! I don't normally wear any makeup, so for people not to be able to recognize who the "movie star" was at the wedding, I was definitely impressed by all the compliments I received. She took less than an hour to do our makeup on each of us. The contouring on my face looked awesome! Also I can tell it was quality makeup since it never wore off throughout the 12 hours I had it on! I totally recommend her, and she will make you look and feel awesome!

We booked SFAK literally the day before our wedding and were thrilled that they came through and made our party a success. Don't book DJs the day before your wedding, kids! But if you do, go ahead and book with SFAK and they'll take care of you :)

We used LuvlyProduction for our wedding photobooth in May 2018. I was impressed by their responsiveness and their desire to make sure we had a good experience working with them. Our guests really enjoyed the props and enclosed photobooth!!! I had no complaints from our coordinator about setup or teardown. Would not hesitate to book again :)

Chris is fantastic! We had a horrible experience with our wedding photographer, and so were a little hesitant to get some family photos taken. Chris was the perfect choice. He was patient, professional, and took the time to get the shots we wanted. Pictures are adorable, I am so glad I have some nice ones of our family and newborn. I would use him again.

We had TwinSpin for our wedding, and we're super satisfied with his service. Before the wedding, he spent time to learn my needs and address my concerns. His price was competitive; he worked with me on prices and threw in couple extras. His equipment was professional and as described, and everyone could hear in our outdoor wedding. At the reception, he was energetic and was able to engage the crowd without any directions from me. Overall, better than expected. You can hire him with confidence.

Nicholas did an amazing job capturing all of the special moments and details in our wedding with an articstic eye! Our friends and family are still raving about his work! He was also very accommodating and went above and beyond to film everything we asked for and more. Leading up to the wedding, he was always responsive immediately within the day if not hour and even after the wedding during the editing process he was like this! He has always been professional, polite, and friendly. He got along great with our photographer. He got our wedding video to us very quickly and edited everything beautifully while making sure to cleverly add in our special songs and props. If you are looking for someone professional, creative, friendly, accommodating, and affordable for your special occasions look no further!

I've had a great experience working with Mariane. I reached out to Mariane for the bridal bouquet for my sister's wedding. Mariane was very responsive. She was patiently answering all the questions I had about the bridal bouquet and she also made some suggestions based on her experience. I appreciate it a lot. The bouquet itself turned out exactly how my sister wanted. It was a pleasure working with Mariane.

Robert Mize was our wedding officiant, and we couldn't have been happier with how the ceremony turned out. He was highly organized and took time to plan the flow and order well in advance with us. We appreciated how he took our thoughts and opinions and incorporated them in the service, which made for a personalized ceremony that reflected us as a couple. It was a seamless experience from beginning to end. Robert's good natured personality was also calming throughout the wedding process, and we received many compliments on the ceremony afterwards (not something you often hear)!

I would never hesitate to recommend him Mark and his team recently catered my daughters wedding reception at our home in Capitola. From beginning to end his relaxed nature + excellent execution + delicious food enabled the guests as well as the hosts to make the event memorable and relaxed at the same time. His experience came in handy when planning the event and he took care of everything from start to finish. My wife and I have thrown many parties over the years and this was the first where we called out for help and it was well worth it. Thanks again to Mark and I would never hesitate to recommend him or call on him again.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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.
