Thomas was absolutely amazing! He worked with us for our wedding on 9/9/17 with little advanced notice because our other DJ flopped. I am so grateful for him. He played the songs we wanted and totally respected our wishes because we wanted clean music. He also helped us with the structure and organization of the wedding and was a FANTASTIC MC and DJ. His uplighting was fabulous, and he could even change the colors on the spot. The greatest part of this review is that we had a dry wedding, but ALL our wedding guests were dancing the entire night. Our guests were having such a great time, that our wedding venue actually had to shut it down lol. I am so pleased! So many of our guests gave compliments to our DJ. We were so thrilled to work with Thomas, and would re-hire him for any event we may have in the future. Just truly professional, timely, helpful and amazing! We can't thank you enough for making our day so special!!

Chris is not only a great DJ, he is an amazing person! Chris provided services for our wedding. He is accomodating, easy-going, and fun, fun, fun! One example of Chris's customer focus - We had a last minute change when our bagpiper was a "no show" for the wedding ceremony. Without any hesitation, Chris moved his equipment outside to provide music for the ceremony and then quickly moved everything back inside for our reception (with a smile on his face the entire time). We can't say enough nice things about Chris. He accomodated every request, and he has a fantastic, positive attitude. Reserve Chris for your event! He is awesome!

I chose Tammy for my son's wedding knowing nothing about her (except reviews I read on Thumbtack). I am telling you--HIRE HER--DON'T BOTHER to look further for a minister for your event. Tammy was wonderfully attuned to the bride and groom's wishes and put some beautiful ideas into their heads to help shape their ceremony (since they weren't sure what they wanted). Her recitation of the meaning of marriage during the ceremony was beautuful and poignant and many of us shed some tears, it was so beautiful and heartfelt. We didn't know her before this, but her presence elevated our small family wedding to be even more special than the day already was. We will remember her warmth, humor and compassionate care whenever we think about this amazing wedding day.

I can not say enough good things about the experience we had with DJ Paul at our 5/27/17 wedding. He traveled from out of state, arrived plenty early to set up and still had enough time to review details with us beforehand to ensure everything went as we wanted. He provided props and was able to get everybody involved in the fun despite the wide age range of people. He conducted himself with true professionalism and attention to detail, all at a very reasonable price. I would highly recommend using Paul and would not hesitate to use him again in the future. Thank you, Paul for helping to makeour special day better then we imagined.

Dennis did not disappoint! He’s a true professional and his experience in the business shows. He was kind to work with, attentive to our needs, and also had plenty of ideas to share with us. Even with a wedding as small as ours (45 guests) he was able to maintain great energy in the room and the dance floor. We had a perfect day and all of our guests had so much fun. (:

Super Partyland provided photobooth services for our wedding. They were professional and easy to work with the entire way through. Everything was great: the enclosed booth, attendant, props, album, and a beautiful and classy custom photo strip template. On top of that, we easily saved at least $300 compared to similar offers. Our guests loved the photobooth and we would definitely recommend them for your wedding or event!

Marc Cacho and MC Visuals were very professional. Through out my wedding planning process he worked with me and made adjustments to my contract as necessary. The day of my wedding his crew was very flexible and made sure to capture my special moments with elegance and class. I had a wonderful stress free experience. It was a blessing to be able to find a team that included photographers and a videographer at such a reasonable price.

I cannot say enough positive things about Dave from Love, Honor and Cherish. He went above and beyond for our wedding, even making adjustments up until the night before just to make sure we had everything we wanted! My husband and I loved working with him and enjoyed the way he ensured that our wedding was truly a celebration of our love. Our videographer decided to use a portion of his opening monologue as the background for our wedding trailer and everyone who has seen it agrees that his thoughtful and kind words are what makes the video so meaningful. I can't wait until we receive our full ceremony video and relive how perfect it truly was. I would recommend Dave to anyone!

We were in need of quite a bit of extra help with a quick wedding that would enable me and my (now) wife to submit a visa application so that she can come and live with me in the UK, and we were in the UK while we were arranging things, which meant that we had to rely on Ellie for quite a bit of help, and she did not let us down. She managed to arrange for us a same-day collection of a marriage license with the town hall (that normally required at least 24 hours from submission of the application), and she was prompt with returning the necessary details first thing Monday morning after our Saturday wedding, meaning our marriage certificate was ready to collect before we were even ready to leave the house. She was fun to be around, did a great job, and my only regret is that we didn't have more time to spend with her. Thanks Ellie! Andy and Tasha

She was absolutely amazing! She did exactly what I had envisioned for my wedding day. The best part is due to unforeseen circumstances, I cried more than I thought I would and my makeup stayed true all night! Literally about 10 hours if not more was it perfect. Even after some accidental rubbing and dabbing with a tissue, everything stayed true. I couldn't have asked for anyone better. My hat goes off!

Working with Victoria and her team was absolutely wonderful! I hired her as my day-of coordinator for my wedding on 11/11/17, but she was so much more than that! From the moment I hired her back in April, she provided me with tips and guidance all the way to my wedding day. She was available for calls, texts, and emails, and answered every little wedding detail, décor, and etiquette question that came into my mind. She calmed me down when I was super stressed out and helped me put things in perspective. She was super professional throughout the whole experience, and extremely organized and on top of things. She came with me to tour my venue, and communicated details with my vendors for me. When we had problems with the tuxes last minute, she stepped in and advocated for us and helped make sure everything got corrected. She might sound sweet (and she is!), but she can stand up for you and get it done when needed! And when the wedding weekend came around and I changed things last minute, she didn’t even flinch as she jumped on my new (and improved, of course!) ideas. I felt very comfortable handing over my “wedding day vision” to her with full faith that she would execute everything beautifully, and she did! She was awesome at “herding the cats” at our rehearsal. Victoria and her team decorated the last-minute change in ceremony space, and the giant barn for the reception. I don’t know if anything went wrong behind the scenes, but if it did, I had no idea because she took care of everything! My venue was super DIY and I had to bring in all the different vendors, so Victoria had to manage all of them. She coordinated with all the vendors and from my point of view, everything flowed seamlessly! When my new husband and I went off to take photos, one of them came with us just to make sure everything went smoothly and so we could always be in contact the rest of the team back at the venue. I felt like a celebrity with my posse behind me to take care of all the details. They brought us hors d'oeuvres and drinks while we fulfilled various wedding day responsibilities and traditions, fixed our attire when things got out of place, and truly just waited on us hand and foot! Everyone was extremely professional and I truly felt like a princess in their very capable hands. I didn’t have to worry or even think about anything the day of the wedding, and I just let Victoria and her team usher us around, making sure everyone was where they were supposed to be when they were supposed to be there. I truly cannot recommend Everlasting Affairs highly enough. They were amazing; my day was perfect, and I could not have done it without them!

We flew Murali to our destination wedding in Sante Fe to shoot our rehearsal dinner and our wedding the following day. He arrived promptly, was beyond accommodating to our photo wants and was so professional our entire list of guests was impressed. We got our photos back promptly and we all love them! Great shots across the board and they look beautiful even big and blown up. We just wish he lived in Texas so he could keep up with all of our photo needs! If you are interested in knowing more about our experience with him - please feel free to shoot me a message on FB. I would be happy to answer any questions about him being our event photographer. Thank you Murali! We are so glad you took such great care of us and our captured our special day perfectly!

Augustina did our wedding photos and they are amazing. She was engaging and got shots of everyone, even the folks who typically avoid the camera. She went above and beyond to make people feel comfortable and she thought outside the box to get some creative pictures in addition to more traditional ones.

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.
