We used Mark Solock as our wedding officiant and couldn’t have been happier with the job he did.  We are a multicultural and multi-religious family who needed an officiant who understood our needs and was able to unify our ceremony. (BTW not easy to find) Mark was engaging and had a great pace to the ceremony.   Our schedules are ridiculous, and Mark was an excellent communicator who made sure we understood the time lines and what all was needed to make the event amazing! He even provided us with templates and the "what to do after" guidelines as well! Mark incorporated the story of us as a couple based on the meetings we had prior to the ceremony.  We had several compliments about the job he did and would recommend him highly for other couples looking for an officiant of their own.   Wonderful job Mark!

I just got married 8/5/16 and Carl was absolutely amazing! My whole experience with him was great. We had 2 meetings before the wedding. He was very professional and organized which I really liked. The online planning was super easy as well. He walked me through everything step by step and made me less stressed about how everything was going to work. He was always so friendly and happy. The day of my wedding, everything went as planned. He arrived early and had everything set up. The sound was great, the songs were played just right during the ceremony. The only thing I would say was off was that his microphone sounded a little distorted at first when doing the announcements, but he fixed it right away so it was no problem at all! Overall, it was an absolute pleasure working with him. I would like to add that his prices are very reasonable and affordable. We had uplighting that we added too and his whole setup was beautiful. I highly recommend his services for your wedding!! :)

I worked with Emil for our wedding and from our first consultation, my now husband and I knew we made a great decision! We took our engagement photos with Emil and we were so excited because if this was the sneak peek to what our wedding photos would be like, then we knew our photos were going to be just beautiful! On our wedding day Emil was so kind and patient! You could tell he has a true eye for vision because he would watch the sun to wait until it was in the perfect spot for our perfect shot!!! Well I couldn't believe just a few short weeks later, a little package in the mail and with all of our wedding photos!!!! They are more than we could imagine and they came out so beautifully! Choose visual etiquette! Seriously... Emil captured more than photos, he captured the moments of love and joy and help make them live on forever!!!!

Martina did a fantastic job on my daughter's wedding. I could not be more pleased. It was the only thing that went right during her wedding. The groom's family did their best to sabotage the wedding. Martika's calm presence made the situation less devastating for us, even when the Mom was yelling out inappropriate comments during the ceremony. I could never have made it through the event without her. She spent time getting to know us and came away feeling like we made a friend and not just a photographer. She did an excellent job of explaining to my skeptical unknowledgeable daughter the services that were available to her so that the pictures told her story. She checked out the event site the day before and they both became more comfortable with her and the camera. She responded very well despite the constant conflict from the grooms family making this event devastating and unbearable for myself, the mother of the bride. No one could have done a better job under these terrible circumstances. Martina truly went way above and beyond given this unfortunate situation.

Henry was amazing throughout the entire process of planning our wedding reception, from the first moment I came across his website to his announcing of the last song of the wedding night. He took the time to promptly and enthusiastically respond to all of my questions and emails and check up on us periodically while also getting in touch with our venue representative and photographer. Henry carried that great enthusiasm to the wedding day - from the moment we stepped into the venue we could tell that he used his sharp eye and utmost care to assure that the setting would be perfect. The uplighting was brilliant and our requested monogram that shined on the wall was a delightful touch. The songs that he played throughout the dinner pleasantly surprised our guests and set the mood for the dancing portion of the night. Henry kept the energy going throughout the entire evening, reading the crowd to choose the most appropriate music and accommodating the song requests we had entered in his user friendly customer portal. We loved how he mixed the songs so that they flowed together seamlessly so that ourselves and our guests could dance the night away. We highly recommend A Touch of Class DJ Service for your wedding reception! ~Stephen & Janelle

We used Just A Bite for our son's wedding in Wheaton held at a local church with 125 guests. We coordinated everything long distance as we live in Minnesota. Loretta was super responsive and a delight to work with on all details and questions. Everyone raved about the appetizers and there was plenty for all. Her prices are very reasonable for the quality and quantity provided. Great selections to choose from. I would highly recommend her catering services.

C2Detail Events - Charlene served as the day off person for our wedding. The package my now husband and I purchased included - active support in vendor management/payments as well as coordination of our expectations from the rehearsal dinner through the church ceremony and reception. C2Detail Events was phenomenal! They left nothing to be questioned and even assisted in areas not covered in our contract to ensure the day came together without a glitch. Charlene, you were amazing! We thank you from the bottom of our hearts. August 25, 2012 you became more than a vendor, but a part of our family for events to come. We would highly recommend your services!

Gene was a true professional! The props were amazing, payment easy, rate affordable, and my family LOVED the photobooth. We are so excited to have had GN Events at our wedding and end up with a file of photos detailing our friends and families having a blast. My brother missed the photobooth time slot, and Gene allowed him a last second photo! This is absolutely something will be talking about for many years to come. :)

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.
