Myself & all my guests were extremely impressed with the service & excellent food. Everything fresh & made on site. Thomas & his assistant were great to work with, & Thomas was so good at replying to email queries & last minute changes leading up to the event. I would recommend 'Yok' (Your own kitchen) in a heartbeat. Looks like some of my guests look forward to using him in the future as well. He also left the place perfectly clean, you wouldn't have known he had been there, except for the satisfied & fully stomachs. Thank you so much Thomas, the event was GREAT.

Lisa showed up on time and set up an appealing display of delicious food. There were about 100 people at the event and a number of them commented on how great the food was. She returned on time to clean up. She was very easy to work with and was responsive to my questions and concerns. I would definitely recommend her catering services to others

Karen is not only an incredible florist, she is also an experienced Wedding/Event Coordinator. She knows everything that goes into an event, and she's prepared for anything. She listened carefully to our daughter's vision and made it come to life. (Our daughter has NO knowledge of flowers...just knew the look she wanted.) Karen made the BIG DAY completely easy for us.

I had the pleasure of working with Mary and her family when planning my wedding this past summer at Deer Creek Valley Ranch. The first time I met with Mary and her daughter to discuss my goals and dreams for the wedding, I could tell that she was going to do whatever it took to make my wedding day memorable. Through her busy schedule she was willing to meet with me several times to ensure that we were all on the same page for what the big day entailed. She went out of her way of finding affordable decorations to make my vision come true. Her daughters were very thoughtful in providing great ideas and insight on decorations and other wedding details. Her husband was very helpful with the technological side of things and offered to be the DJ and M.C. at the wedding. Without hesitation, I would highly recommend Mary and her services to any bride or organization who is looking to have an event that is well-planned, organized, and perfect! Mary and her team are genuine, hard-working, and very knowledgable about event planning. Not only is Mary professional, but she is affordable and will provide valuable expertise to make your day exceptional!

Matt absolutely killed our wedding reception! After the first dance song, he got everyone on the dance floor (literally EVERYONE) and he kept the party going all night! We could not have hoped for a better dance party for our wedding and would highly recommend Matt and Mountain Event Services for any of your future parties.

We found Raindrops on Roses after a lot of searching for event planners on Facebook. We wanted to plan a Prince themed first birthday party for our son and were looking for somebody who has done similar themed parties before and after seeing the work that Sangeetha had done we decided to get in touch with her. Right from our first meeting she put us at ease about the planning. She took care of everything that was needed for the party - from the decorations to the food. We just chose the location for the party and Sangeetha and her team did the rest. Everyone who attended the party were impressed by the way the decorations were put in place for the Prince theme, everything from the backdrop to the goody bags were done beautifully. The food was excellent too, and was greatly appreciated. The party was a big hit and a huge success. Thank you Sangeetha for all your efforts in making this party a memorable event for our family. We would definitely recommend Raindrops on Roses for anyone looking to plan any party. Sangeetha is very professional, meticulous and easy to work with.

Princess helped out with a couple of events for the City of Fort Lupton. She was the DJ and really got the kids and adults moving. For a couple of weeks after the events people around town were still talking about how fun the events were. She has a great voice and tons of energy. We'll use her again!!!

Working with Katie during the Global Youth Leadership Summit was an awesome experience. There wasn’t a time during the event when I was worried about the event because I knew she was on top of it. Her professionalism and personality made the week a breeze.

Amanda met with us before our wedding to get a feel for what we were hoping our day would be like. She made sure to gather details we hadn't thought of yet and quickly afterwards sent us a detailed timeline of how the night would break down. She was there throughout the event, from set-up to tear-down and made sure our needs were taken care of! Highly recommend! Thanks Amanda!!!

I’m rating Vanessa on her responsiveness and professionalism as an event planner. We connected through the Thumbtack app and I worked an event she was coordinating. All the information was upfront ,she was kind, easy to talk to and very precise. I can’t wait to work more events with her in the future!

I cannot recommend Britainy enough. She was extremely professional, had great advice, kept my wedding moving in the right direction, consistently available, and she did it all while pregnant. She helped to coordinate my vendors, took tips to dispense, and helped to keep track of invoices. If you are looking for an event planner, I would suggest hiring Britainy immediately! She was by far the best decision I made for my wedding and we would have been lost without her!

Laurel served as day-of coordinator for our wedding. She was available and accessible before the wedding day for planning and brainstorming, and was prompt, professional, and detail-oriented on the wedding day, to help make our celebration a memorable event. I left all details in her care from start to finish, and didn't worry about a thing throughout the ceremony and reception. She has a knack for seeing the big picture while managing every task in a thoughtful and responsible way. When unexpected situations arose, Laurel made decisions in the moment without needing to consult us or interrupt our celebration--a confidence that I was so grateful for! She understood our hopes for our wedding, and helped to execute them flawlessly!

    Lauren helped me launch my art business, www.hideawayartandcraft.com! Without her attention to detail, my website would probably have remained an incomplete project. With only a few meetings, we nailed down what I wanted to showcase in the website, and she took it from there. It looks wonderful, and she is always available for me to ask questions when I update it. She is intuitive in her awareness of her clients' needs. I know that her expertise and patience is going to serve her as she serves small business owners. She also has valuable information about organizational needs, event planning, and so many other "nuggets." Lauren is a pleasure to work with. I recommend her highly to creatives like me who need help with tangible results.

    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.

    How much do day-of wedding coordinators cost?

    A day-of wedding coordinator makes sure that every detail of your wedding day goes off without a hitch, and deals quickly and quietly with any last-minute emergencies. For many brides, the day-of wedding coordinator is their best investment! The average national cost for a wedding coordinator is $800 to $1,000. Although full-service wedding coordinators often charge a percentage of the total wedding budget, most day-of coordinators charge a flat fee plus an additional hourly fee if the day runs long. For example, a 15-hour day-of coordination costs an average of $600, plus an additional $45 per hour if the coordinator works more than the planned 15 hours. Another option is to hire a coordinator to manage the last-minute details leading up to the event; for example, 25 hours of month-of coordination costs an average of $1,200. Several factors affect the cost of day-of coordination, including the region, the planner’s experience, and the specifics of the wedding. If the ceremony and reception are in two different locations, expect to pay more than if they’re in the same place. Also, extra details, such as managing food trucks or setting up snacks in addition to the meal, will increase the cost.

    What should you ask a wedding coordinator?

    When you hire a wedding coordinator, you want to make sure he or she gets you and can execute perfectly your vision of your dream wedding. To find the very best fit, it’s important to ask these five questions:

    • Are you available on my wedding date? If the coordinator isn’t available on your big day, there’s no reason to continue the interview — unless you’re willing to shift your date to accommodate their schedule.
    • What’s average cost of most of your weddings? If the coordinator’s usual wedding is outside your range, they might not be the right coordinator for you. Ask whether the coordinator requires a minimum wedding budget. In general, the wedding coordinator’s fee should be about 15 percent of your budget.
    • What is your speciality? Some coordinators specialize in day-of coordination, some create the overall vision, and others act as a producer. Make sure your wedding coordinator provides the type of services that will most help you create the event you have in mind, such as selecting vendors and handling their contracts, or managing the guest list and invitations.
    • What are your ideas for fulfilling our wedding vision? After you describe your dream wedding — rustic or sophisticated, traditional or funky — the wedding coordinator should be able to suggest appropriate venues, menus, decorations, etc..

    Do you have a portfolio? Ask to see photos of their favorite weddings, especially if they’ve managed any that are similar to what you have in mind. This will help you see if you like their style and if their ideas seem fresh and creative.

    Do I need a wedding day coordinator?

    Even if you’ve handled every detail of planning your wedding, you might appreciate having a day-of wedding coordinator in your corner. Usually, the coordinator meets with you a few weeks before your wedding to put together a detailed timeline of everything that needs to happen on your wedding day. Then, on the big day, the coordinator makes sure everything goes according to plan — and handles any emergencies that pop up, such as party crashers, missing tuxedos, late vendors, disappearing bridal party members and more. Most wedding coordinators also handle:

    • Distributing the wedding day timeline to all of your vendors.
    • Coordinating all of your vendors, including the photographer, florist and baker.
    • Conducting the wedding rehearsal.
    • Helping the bride and her wedding party get dressed and take photos.   
    • Checking floor plans, lighting levels, cake placement, menus, favors and more.
    • Collecting the wedding gifts and keeping personal items safe and accounted for.

    Even if you don’t think you need a wedding coordinator, check with your venue. Some require that couples hire a day-of wedding coordinator for the day of the event. 

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
