DJ Repeatable DJed and MCed my wedding. I have worked with a few DJs before, but not one that was willing to work so close with my bride and myself to make sure that we got exactly the playlist we wanted. He made sure he knew our party's name pronunciations in advance, the schedule for the whole evening, and the music that we did not want to hear played. He was able to read our room well to get both the old folks and the younger crowd on the dance floor. DJ Repeatable was super professional, easy going, and new how to make our party a blast, from the ceremony through the reception. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Great experience. We wanted a quick signing of marriage liscence even though we are planning our official wedding ceremony a year from now for different reasons. Alice was able to meet with us and do a very small ceremony and signing. She was very nice.Highly recommend her if you are looking for a wedding oficiant. Excellent job

Elmo is exceptional at capturing unique, special and genuine candid moments. He patiently worked with us on our outdoor wedding day on an extremely chilly and windy day. We needed pictures taken in a few settings that involved tricky lighting, included two kids and some were taken in our apartment which is very small. All of our wedding pictures turned out so incredible and are exactly as we would have liked--not super staged and stiff but instead reflected our personalities and the love we share for one another. Elmo went way above and beyond what we even imagined and we are so thrilled with our wedding photos. Elmo also has such a calm demeanor and I would imagine for bigger groups, he would be so skilled at getting people to work together to get the perfect pictures.

What can I say...He was the consummate professional. From the time of selection he was interested in the type of shots we wanted and requested to see inspiration photos. On the day of our wedding he showed up on time and it felt as if he had investigated our wedding location to ensure our photos moved seamlessly from pre wedding, wedding candids, and post wedding. My family and guests felt like he was a member of the family. He was patient and took photos that not only fit our personality but exceeded our expectations (per the inspiration photos provided before the wedding). He delivered the finished photos on time and from first look until now all I see is how awesome they are and how we (the entire wedding party) party thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We definitely plan to sit with him again for portraits. I think we have found the our photographer of choice for all upcoming occasions. We recommend have been recommending him as our photographer of choice (especially to all who have seen our wedding photos.) Thanks again for everything!!! Respectfully, The Minors (May 24, 2018) 😀

Donnell did an AMAZING job with our wedding reception last weekend. We met with him a few days prior. He is very likeable and easy to talk with. On the day of, he delivered! Donnell DJ'd and MC'd! He arrived early and came professionally dressed and ready to go. We did have a few last minute changes to the flow of our reception, but Donnell handled those with ease. Nobody knew! The music was great and our guests hit the dance floor. You will not go wrong hiring Donnell as your wedding DJ. My husband and I highly recommend him!

Rev. Diane officiated our wedding on 10.10.15, and she made our day more special than we could have ever imagined. She took time to meet with us and truly got to know who we are as a couple and what we were looking for on our wedding day. She crafted a beautiful ceremony that was unique to us and included personal details we requested. Rev. Diane was incredibly professional and made our day absolutely perfect. I highly recommend Rev. Diane to any bride and groom looking for a wonderful officiant!

I found Amy on Thumbtack and then talked with her on the phone. She was lively and I just knew she would be great. It was for my 50th Wedding Anniversary Party and I didn't want a lot of extreme, loud music but a good mix as I had grandchildren that loved to dance. She was fantastic. She played all my requests and the requests of guests. We had great music and group dance music that was so much fun. She announced when we had the cake cutting and our song and it could not have been better. I would hire her again in a minute. The last comment was her cost. She is very reasonable and only charges for the time she is playing. Others charge for the time to get there and setting up. Thank you AMY A#l Diana and Jim

Vijay is amazing! He went above and beyond for our pre-wedding photo-shoot. He got to the venue way before our scheduled shoot just so he could walk around the venue and spot the ideal places for our shoot. He had great ideas for the shoot and made us feel comfortable almost instantly. I'd definitely recommend Vijay to anyone looking for a photo-shoot in/around DMV area.

Teresa is the absolute best! From beginning to end everything went perfect! She did makeup for 4 bridesmaid and Mother of the groom. We all had our own style, and Teresa did an awesome job creating the look we were going for. Time was not an issue at all. She knew exactly how much time she would need for each person, and suggested she come a little earlier than planned to make sure we weren't rushing. Our makeup was still flawless well after the wedding ended. We loved having Teresa there for such an important day! Thanks for everything Teresa! Can't wait to work with you again!

Steven from Capital DeeJays provided the music for my daughter's wedding in Loudoun County. He was professional, courteous, and played an appropriate mix of music for dinner and dancing, bringing family and guests of all ages to the dance floor. He also provided lighting to set the right ambiance, and did a great job MCing everything all night. The whole night went very smoothly, thanks in no small part to Steven's top-notch service. I would strongly recommend Steven and Capital DeeJays for weddings and other important events.

Nik proposed in 3/17 & we didn't want to wait so once we locked in the venue, we began looking for a photographer. Our wedding was considered it an elopement as it was a simple service with 11 in attendance, myself & my groom included, and it was to be roughly 3 hours of shoot time. We wanted to have a natural feel to the photos & be rich in color with no details missed. During the search, I wanted to see portfolios of weddings where the photographer had shot in dimly lit venues. Although we didn't do a traditional reception, we did have all of our guests join us for a dinner where we did a toast & cut cake. We wanted to see work that demonstrated the photographer's ability to photograph without the use of bright lights that create shadows or completely black out the room to get one (or a few) subject(s). Joshua was very accommodating when it came down to deciding between three local artists & I'd asked to view a full wedding since in reality, the online portfolios only showcase their best work. He was incredibly patient with us as we took a few weeks to really nit-pick the photographer's work & make a decision. Everything that we'd asked for he provided. Fast forward to June 10, 2017 - the wedding. Upon arrival, he helped us all get into place & even communicate between the groom & I. He was incredibly patient. Honestly, I barely noticed him once everything got rolling. He got all the shots we wanted & then some! The photos of my husband's expression when I made my way towards him will be cherished forever. Anything in particular we wanted, he did. In the end, he ran a few photos by us to see if they were to our satisfaction. We made a few suggestions regarding saturation & a small blemish that needed editing & when the gallery went up, I couldn't stop looking for days. We happily recommend Joshua Fernandez Photography. The photos selected are two of our favorites from the day <3

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.
