Rev Moriarty was everything we wanted for our wedding ceremony. We had to plan our wedding in Chicagoland from NYC and were very nervous about finding our minster online. We had a few phone conversations with Rev Moriarty prior to our ceremony. We felt very at ease after speaking with him as it was clear he had performed many weddings. He had just the right amount of religious aspects to the ceremony. He did a wonderful job adding his own unique touches to make our wedding memorable to us and our guests. We had one guest say that she normally just zones out during the ceremony but was so moved by everything Rev Moriarty said. We trusted him with everything for the ceremony and were not disappointed with anything he did. You will be happy you chose Rev Moriarty!!

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!

Where can I start? I could not have asked for a better night. Rick and Dance Pro DJ's made our whole wedding a blast and a night to remember. Starting from the "hand holding" Rick did with the music for our wedding cerony and reception all the way down to the photo booth. His way to keep the dance floor entertained all night was great. He catered to all the guests Old to young and all in between. Also the booth was so nice. They had an attendant there to assist all the guests and he was so helpful especially with the little kids. The photo strips were very clear and very professional and the props were tons of fun. Rick and Dance Pro DJ's get an A+ in making our wedding surely a night to remember. Thank you again. Jackie

We had Emil for our wedding on February 20, 2015. He was right on time and started taking pictures right away. He was extremely awesome. He was showing me the pictures as he was taking them to show me what we needed to do to get the best pictures. We gave him so little to work with and he was extremely creative. We were missing people from the wedding party and instead of wasting time, he just started taking more pictures. we can't wait to share the pictures with our family and friends. My husband and I were trying to go low cost, and we got a bargain. Thank you Emil for helping make our special day so smooth and worry free. And for putting up with my insane bridal party and family!

We were truly happy with the services that Keicy Photobooth Rental provided on our wedding day. We hired them for our wedding and all wedding guests could not stop raving about how great they were. They were so helpful and made our wedding memorable. They also included a photo album where our guests could leave us notes and a USB that had all the pictures from that night. We could not thank them enough and would recommend them to anyone looking to photobooth services. We loved their custom design for our wedding also! They were both professional and affordable. Karen was always responsive when we messaged her with questions. We can't to hire you again for another event. Thank you so much!!!

We had Henry and his beautiful fiancé DJ my son and daughter-in-laws wedding last Friday and I was over-the-top impressed with the service we received. From their set-up to the music and lighting, everything was diffidently "a touch of class"!! Henry was johnny-on-the-spot making sure the ceremony, wedding party intro, first dance, dad/daughter, mom/son dances, etc, EVERYTHING ran smoothly! Even things I did not think of, they did and took care of it. The music was everything we wanted and even when there was a lull, Henry corrected it and got the dance floor packed again! Thank you soon much for making my son's wedding a huge success! As someone was leaving they told me that you can tell a wedding/party was great by the amount of people that stay till the very end. I'm excited to say we had about 70% still with us at midnight! Success in my book! Thanks again!!

Big hit at the wedding. People are still telling us how much they enjoyed the photo booth. We had an album that people could paste in one of their photo strips and write a message to the bride and groom. The attendant was very helpful with this.

We first met Gonzo back in 2011 when he was the DJ for my cousins wedding. He did such an amazing job and we had a blast because of all of the different music he played. When my now husband and I got engaged, we immediately thought of DJ Gonzo. He did an absolutely FABULOUS job at our wedding. He played all of the music we wanted from the top hits of English music, to the most fun Spanish music, and even threw in some Greek music to honor my husband's heritage. Our family and friends raved how much fun they had dancing the night away and that this was the best music that they've heard at a wedding in a long time. Gonzo was very professional from the moment we met him until the day of the wedding. He also provided a large screen for our family and friends to view a slide show that we compiled. I highly recommend Gonzo for any events you may have!

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 photo booth rental?

A party photo booth is a fun, interactive experience where guests can take a series of photos (usually three or four) that are immediately printed out on a strip as a keepsake. When you rent a party photo booth, the company sets up the booth or photo station at your event; a photographer staffs the booth and coaches guests on how to use it throughout the event. Often the photo booth rental company provides props like silly hats, wigs and glasses. There are different types of party photo booth rentals. An open-air booth has a curtain or backdrop that allows more freedom of movement and enables more people to use it at one time. The traditional enclosed photo booths that you may have seen at the mall or the fair tend to cost more to rent, as they are harder to transport and also cost more for the pros to purchase. The national average cost for party photo booth rentals is $400-$500.

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.

How much does it cost for a photographer for a wedding?

Finding the right wedding photographer can make a big difference for your ceremony. Nationally, the average wedding photographer’s price ranges from $800 to $1,000, but costs can be much higher in areas like Chicago, New York or Los Angeles where some couples spend $2,000 to $5,000 or more for the photographer they want. Factors that can affect your wedding photographer prices include the photographer’s reputation and experience. Heavy hitters can command top rates, especially during wedding-season weekends. Day of the week also affects your cost. You may get a $200 discount on wedding photographer prices if you get married on a Friday in November rather than a Saturday in June. Time onsite is also an important cost factor. Hiring a photographer to snap photos from the moment you wake up until after last call at the reception is going to cost more than five hours of pictures during the day. Multiple photographers, special lighting, and videography will also increase your costs. Ultimately you want to find someone who has a style you love and can provide the number of edited shots you want for a price you can handle. Learn more about hiring a wedding photographer.
