He scheduled a next day meeting for us when I called well past business hours to help with some special financial issues. He thoroughly explained options and different effects to choose from, asked many questions to get to know us and said that before the wedding we would all go to the venue and choose what we wanted and where we wanted it so he could be sure to get everything we'd like in addition to his candid shots without having to worry about it on wedding day.

Rob Hurth Photography was FANTASTIC!!!!! The whole team was so easy to work with. Rob answered all my questions anytime I had one throughout the entire process. I'm happy I didn't spend a lot of time making a photo list because Rob and his team thought of everything, even photos I hadn't seen or thought of. I received my photos two weeks after our wedding, including a video montage of our photos. We loved it! All of our friends and family have commented how they have not seen anything like it before. Rob had also done a photo session with me and my bridemaids with the same results. I did not need the video for that one and Rob traded out the video for additional photos with no problem at all. I would Rob Hurth Photography again in a heartbeat!

"Mother of the Bride speaking.......Due to participation of out of state family, the rehearsal with Bonnie was the day before the wedding, not a lot of time for fine tuning. She gave her options of various thoughts to be included in the service. The Bride and Groom felt some of it was not what they had envisioned for them and their guests, and gave her their input. With all the hub-bub, we were hoping she was listening. And guess what....she was! She had condensed the ceremony exactly to their wishes, and just as important, was a happy and enthusiastic participant during the ceremony, with her ready smile and the natural manner of her delivery. It felt she was a friend of the couple, who was enjoying herself as she carried out the tone of a joyous day!" "Bride Speaking for couple"... There are no words to describe how fortunate we feel to have found Bonnie to officiate our wedding. I spoke with Bonnie a few months before the wedding and knew after our first conversation I had chosen someone who truly cared about making our wedding a special moment for us and our guests. Throughout the wedding planning process, the ONLY thing I didn't worry about was the wedding ceremony because I felt confident it would be special because of Bonnie. My husband and I have young adult children and it was important to us to include them in our ceremony. We chose to incorporate the hand fastening and have each child wrap the cord around our hands as we said a vow. It was an outdoor wedding and was a beautiful moment to be cherished forever. Bonnie truly always made me feel she was excited for our wedding and touched by our love story. It came across in the words that she wrote and spoke & by the response of our friends and family. I had many people ask how Bonnie knew us and were shocked that she wasn't a longtime friend. We can't speak highly enough of how special Bonnie made our days leading up to the wedding and the our wedding day! We told her she will renew our vows unquestionable one day!

I have had the opportunity to hire Sam Gold to videotape our Wedding Anniversary. I had a black and white affair and I did ask him if he could dress in accordance and he did not even flinch with any defense, he made it happened. He was appropriately dressed and clean shaved, he just blended perfectly with my upscale guests. Mr. Gold is very passionate in his work and he goes above and beyond to please your every need. He has the ability to produce a well arranged DVD for you but if you know what your sequence of events are, he is willing to consider it and make it happen just for you. I have never met anyone who constantly goes to the extreme to make me so happy with the finished product of my DVD, and I can tell you, I have done several videotaped events in the past which turned out to be a disaster! And with Sam Gold's Video, my Wedding Anniversary Video turns out to be a GEM! Also, what I like about Sam Gold's Video service is that, apart from focusing on the main characters (e.g. wife and husband) Sam also interviews your guests which is a very highlighted and enthused part of the DVD movie which becomes so appreciative! after everything is done and you are in the comfort of your home, you will then enjoy all the parts you missed, i.e. prior to your arrival in the ballroom or during the entire event, in other words in places where we were unable to be, Sam has captured... and it is a joy to see the captured moments. I will always rehire Mr. Gold for any DVD event I will ever have. He also does still pictures which comes out pretty sharp and breathtaking! His price is also very reasonable compared to his competitors and he delivers exceptional quality service. So, to anyone who wants to hire Mr. Gold, I would highly recommend him because my husband, my ministers, my family and guests are very impressed with the quality of work he has done, not to mention me. I am indeed very grateful for his patience, his time, his willingness and his co-operation in making the finale of my DVD so awesome!!! One which is a Masterpiece and one that we will never forget!! You can view a short version of my video on YouTube @: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BcUPE4SJhYw or you can type in: Devon and Michelle Henry 24 Minute Highlight Video of their 18th Wedding Anniversary in the search engine. Hope you enjoy watching as we do. Thanks again Mr. Gold! And may you continue to serve the families with your high-level quality of service wherever you may go! Kindest regards! From: Devon & Michelle Henry

Michelle, was amazing since the moment I met her. She was friendly, knowledgeable and most important you can see the passion she has for what she does. My visit with her consisted of a trial run for my renewal vow ceremony. She curled my hair and did my makeup. She exceeded my expectations, made me feel and look beautiful. I would recommend her to everyone! I will be hiring her to do my wedding and my wedding parties hair and makeup.

Professional, helpful, easy going and kind, that's Tony! Tony always responded to my inquiries immediately. Since we didnt want to write our own vows he provided us with many different examples of which we chose verses from to create our "own". He then organized our vows so they flowed well during the wedding. He delivered our vows in a comforting voice and manner. He was ready to stand in the rain for us but luckily the storm passed and we had a great wedding. His price is great and we would definitely reccommend chosing him! Ellie & Kyle

Lillian was absolutely amazing. Not only was her hair and makeup execution exactly what I wanted it to be, she is so personable that I had such a great time with her. Having Lillian around was like having another one of my girls next to me on my big day! Getting married in August in Florida can be tricky, especially when trying to take photos on the beach (yes I'm crazy!) but my hair and makeup, as well as that of my wedding party, held up perfectly! I definitely recommend Lillian for hair and makeup for any special day. She goes above and beyond to not only make sure that you look beautiful and you're satisfied, but she also helps ensure that you have fun, are relaxed, and enjoy yourself!

Hiring Real Deal Photography/Peter Obetz was the best decision we ever made for our wedding. They were professional, creative, organized, and best of all, we were laughing and joking as though we had hired friends of ours to photograph our wedding. They did an amazing job capturing our special day and even recreated scenes from my parents' wedding photography that were spot on!! Real Deal and Peter Obetz did such a beautiful job and it was such a pleasure to work with them that we have hired them again for our family photos!

I needed to find somebody that could drop off dinners once a week as a 65th wedding anniversary gift for my in-laws. They very much enjoyed the food and her caring personality. She was very much a pleasure to work with. I would hire her again in a heart beat. Such a great find when you are trying to do something like this out of state.

I researched IG pages, websites, Facebook posts of so many hair and makeup options for my wedding in Naples while I was far away in Chicago. I was in the process of moving out of our apartment, into my parents house and then off to our new house in Florida with the wedding a week after that. Needless to say I was stressed out. When I came across Alex&Isabel I immediately liked their hair styles and their price point was around what I was looking for. I messaged the company and within minutes Bianca was following up and working with me on what I wanted. I sent her photos of what I was thinking of and she knew exactly how to conduct the perfect hairstyle for me. She answered any questions I had throughout the planning process, and was so calming and reassuring the day of the event. She was so attentive and understanding of everything I was looking for. She was a blast to work with the day of the wedding. She did my hair and airbrush makeup for the wedding along with my sister. Our hair and makeup lasted ALL evening, even with the June Florida heat. She was everything I could ever hope for my wedding day. I would recommend her over and over! Absolutely amazing woman!

That Guy Can Help not only scoped out our wedding venue a week prior, but also arrived an hour early to set up so he could be prepared for the day. He was extremely professional and captured moments of the day I would've never knew existed if it wasn't for him. The quality of work that he produces is undeniable. I would definitely use him again and recommend him to other people. Thank you That Guy Can Help!

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.
