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!

My husband and I were short on time and on a budget when we started looking for wedding invitations. We were dismayed by all the generic wedding websites and designs available and intrigued by the idea of a custom wedding graphic. We loved Annie's aesthetic and she took the time to come up with a beautiful graphic that was totally "us". We used it for everything from the save the dates to the wedding website. Annie even helped us make it into a cake topper! She also designed our orders of service and reception maps...everything was chic, cohesive, lovely and ON TIME. At the end of the day, Peiper Moon was one of the easiest, most affordable and effective vendors we worked with. It kind of set the bar for our creative and cool wedding. We recommend!!

Mike created our very first website for us about seven years ago. Recently we asked him to give us a new look on our website. We changed our logo and wanted it to match our website and the graphics on our vehicles. He did a fantastic job accomplishing everything we needed. We were very busy at the time so it took us awhile to complete the project. Mike was very understanding and easy to work with. This website is outstanding. We have so much more business because of it. I wish we had done it sooner. When customers call, one of the first things they say is "I love your website!". We won't use anyone else.

Every girl ought to know she is beautiful. Tricia's boudoir session let me see a new side of myself. She captured my personality while making me "look like a model" according to my man ;) Her attention to soft natural light gives an elegant romantic feel to the images. We started off with a relaxing glass of wine. Tricia had tailored the session to my requests. She even researched some new locations in order to find the best place for me. The session was fun and special. While this session was for my husband to be, there is much to be said for the self confidence boost that comes with beautifully crafted photos. I would definitely recommend Tricia. I have not been let down by her in the past and I trust the Lens & Palette will capture beautiful moments at our upcoming wedding.

We chose Big Daddy's catering for our wedding day. We chose two main courses and three apetizers, and every bite of it was perfect. Joshua made sure we didn't have to worry about a thing on our day. Everything was great, and went smooth. Food was set up on time, warm and delicious! I would definitely choose their service again!

With more than six months out, we had secured a restaurant, and menu, out of Denver to cater our wedding in Canon City at the Robison Mansion. Three weeks before the wedding we received a call that the restaurant was closing at the end of the week, and we would have to find someone else to cater our event. My worst wedding nightmares were coming true! BUT - my mother went down to the Kitchen Pantry and was introduced to Jodi of Classic Country Catering, who jumped right in and said that she would love to cater our wedding. She was a serious miracle in our time of need - she jumped right in and took charge in a way that eased every worry I had. From taking charge of dish rental to offering a more extended (and delicious) version of the menu we had chosen (which certainly wasn't a wedding-traditional menu), she was amazing from start to finish. She even created a most beautiful display where the food was served. I take pride in being a person who enjoys delicious and nutritious food, and Jodi and her team were amazing at providing just what we wanted. I can't even begin to count the number of guests who mentioned how delicious the food was! I would recommend her over and over again to anyone looking for a caterer in Canon City and surrounding areas. You will be lucky to have her.

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 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 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.
