I would like to give a thumbs up to Pas De Deux Catering, I used this catering service for my wedding reception, and was very impressed. The food and the services were great and very reasonable. Marcus, was able to help me at the last minute seeing that I wasn't pleased with my last caterer. I would definitely use his services again and would highly recommend him, trust me you will not be disappointed.

Leneille was absolutely fantastic! She made sure our day ran smoothly and even went out of her way to get us an extremely nice wedding gift along with helping us find a caterer and saved us when there was going to be rain on our day. She was always available to talk or text whenever we needed help with absolutely anything. When there was a weird moment with a vendor, she smoothed it over without us having to deal with it. She should be charging much more than she is as she was the single best decision we made when planning our wedding.

Stephanie and the team at Cabaki's did an amazing job for not only my wedding but also my wedding rehearsal dinner! The variety on her menu and the versatility she offers with her team is extraordinary. As somewhat of a foodie myself, I will say I was very nervous for any caterer to handle the food for one of the most important days of my life. However, Stephanie took away all of my concerns and provided above and beyond service with excellent communication and a quick response with any questions or concerns I may have had. Not only did my friends and family enjoy the amazing spread, they also raved about the unique dessert that we requested from Stephanie. Not everyone can make a croquembouche! Not only did she and her team create a beautiful croquembouche they also provided a tasty and delicious dessert that all of my guests talked about. I cannot thank Stephanie and her team enough for putting all of my concerns to rest and providing detail and quality that surpassed my highest expectations. If there is any event in the future that requires catering, I will be calling on Stephanie and her team at Cabaki's catering!

Since my wedding is so far away, we have obviously not started doing anything, but during our first meeting, we clicked instantly! She had so many great ideas..not to mention she is the sweetest woman. I went ahead and put my deposit down because I knew instantly that I wanted her to not only be my florist but a crucial part in my wedding planning overall.

I had a great experience working with Sequoia Daniels. She was very professional during the entire process of planning my wedding reception. I contracted Sequoia for day of planning. She made sure that my day ran as smooth as silk. There were even some issues with The reception venue that I contracted being extremely difficult to work with, (this was not her fault I contracted this venue before hiring Sequoia) she jumped right in to smooth out any issues with venue and their staff, to keep me completely stress free. I would definetly recommend her services for your event planning and coordination needs.

I really enjoyed having Jazzy as a decorator for my wedding. I liked her ideas and she tried to keep me updated about the changes that were made via text and email as I live outside of the city where I was getting married. I had hoped to meet her in person to go over the details of the wedding, but we did not meet until the day prior and I was not able to see the flower arrangements and decorations until the day of the wedding. The decorations for the reception was BEAUTIFUL there were small minor details that where overlooked. (i.e. the card placements were not in the correct order for the seating arrangements). Overall, I enjoyed the experience. Thanks Jazzy.

I hired Kori Nicole for a one day wedding coordination contract, but she provided so much more. From our initial meeting more than 30 days out, she has been intimately involved in the details of my wedding. Meeting with the vendors, being immediately accessible via phone text and email, and providing additional decorative suggestion as needed, she is everything I could have dreamed of in someone to help me make my wedding day the absolute perfection I dreamed of. Even my guests commented on how hard she worked the day of. My husband is especially grateful in that she ridded me of so much stress and anxiety and it was less for him to deal with, lol. I, for one after experiencing what she does first-hand, believes she is significantly under-priced, so if you can snag her, be sure to jump at it, because she is the best I've seen in this industry from years of seeing mediocre coordinators of weddings of friends and family. THANK YOU Kori Nicole, for such exceptional service and professionalism. We will definitely be seeing you at the next big event celebration :-).

Nieca helped us pull together our son's wedding in 6 weeks! She was amazing! She took the exact photos of the cake, colors, and decorations they wanted and got it all done exactly as pictured. It turned out excellent. She handled it all, even down to the caterers and wedding cake. It took a huge burden off of myself and my husband so all we had to do was be the parents of the groom! I highly recommend her!

Hiring Alicia was one of the best decisions I had made. As soon as I hired her she was on top of everything!! The stress I felt went away when we had our first consultation. She went above and beyond to make my day special. On my wedding day I had no worries and I knew she would handle everything. I’m so happy with how everything turned out. She kept up with our planned day of timeline and just kept things flowing. Alicia thank you for making our day so special!!

    I had the pleasure of working with Marilyn four years ago in planning the entertainment for my wedding. The DJ was outstanding and everyone had a great time. Marilyn was so very easy to work with. She's professional, organized, and very knowledgeable about what's new and upcoming in social events. I will only use Stepping Stone for all my future events.

    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. 

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
