Mark officiated our wedding in Naperville, IL in July 2016. He offers a great presentation with flexibility to cater to couple's specific needs- all at a very reasonable rate. His prepared introductions and readings were lovely and we were easily able to edit parts to add a more personal touch to the officiant speech. He did a great job helping us coordinate the procession at both the rehearsal and actual ceremony. We highly recommend Mark to officiate your wedding! - Matt and Courtney

Jocelyn was fantastic! She was very friendly, easy to reach, and helped me every step of the way. I had a themed wedding and Jocelyn did everything perfect with ceremony to match my theme. She even gave me more ideas to use with the themed ceremony to make it extra special. I couldn't ask for better as she went above my expectations! I would recommend her to anybody. Thank you Jocelyn.

I actually booked this company for their photo booth services for my wedding! I already had another DJ at the time I found them, so I cannot speak to their DJ services, but the owner of this company, Rick, is very nice and so quick to respond to emails! The photo booth was awesome. It was very low cost and a huge hit at our wedding! Rick accomodated everything we asked for, including custom photo strips and a special background we requested. They even gave me a thumb drive afterwards of all the photo booth images taken that night! Highly recommend for any wedding or party!

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!!!!

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!! :)

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.

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!

Life On Prints was an amazing photographer. Tony came from Chicago to shoot our small, intimate beach wedding. Our wedding started at 6pm, and it started pouring down rain at 5:30. As the rain started clearing up around 5:50, Tony talked us into putting the chairs back outside and giving our outdoor ceremony a chance as planned. So thankful he did! We followed his advice and had a beautiful ceremony. The pictures he took on the beach were awesome. Our goal was to take pictures that would capture the sunset, and he did just that. He used lighting tricks that brought out the beautiful sunset more than I ever could have imagined. He even ended up capturing pictures with a rainbow as the rains started to come back in after the ceremony. Tony was extremely flexible and offered advice that helped us get the memories we wanted in the form of pictures. He was very quick to get the pictures edited and sent to us as well. Great experience, great pictures, 5 stars from us!

Kate was nothing but professional and talented. I am usually decisive but had a hard time making decisions on my floral arrangements for my wedding. Kate walked me through everything, talked with me about my options, and gave me her professional opinion. I appreciate the time and energy she spent making sure everything looked perfect!

BOOK THEM RIGHT NOW!!!!! :) :) IT WILL BE THE BEST DECISION YOU MADE FOR YOUR SPECIAL DAY!!!! We are absolutely in love with our wedding video!!! It truly left us speechless. It not only captured the events of our very special day, but told a visual story. The quality of their work will take your breath away, you can tell they genuinely put their heart and soul into each film. We were in awe upon receiving the video, everyone we showed teared up and said they had never seen such an amazing/unique wedding video!!!! Our cinematographer Chris was so professional, cooperative, and more than willing to take input. He is a true artist. He truly captured our wedding night and all of the most precious moments. He was completely non-invasive yet somehow captured everything. He was very kind and an amazing asset to the whole night. We can honestly say, going with him was one of the best decisions we made. We can't possibly begin to express how much we appreciate this. We will now forever be able to relive the memories of our wedding through this video. One other thing, our previous videographer canceled on us the week before the wedding. Chris was able to help us last minute and we are beyond thrilled and lucky that the previous guy canceled on us. The work Chris did is beyond unique and cannot stress how much we love his work. The video is our absolute favorite thing we received from all of the vendors!!! Nothing compared. Thank you sooo much for capturing our fairytale and for allowing us to relive the best day of our lives. I will cherish my video forever & can't wait to show my children someday!!! I attached a few photos with them in the background. We never even knew they were there!! Even after the wedding people told me how impressed they had been with them and the footage captured was amazing since they never even noticed them. Thank you again for our gorgeous wedding video!

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.
