Imaginola Photography was hired for the use of the Photo Booth and also videography at my wedding. I highly recommend this company to everyone! While designing the photo strip to be used for for the photo booth, Jason listened to my queries and concerns. He helped to design the perfect photo strip in just minutes. The work was high quality and cost efficient enough to fit into my tight budget. Also, I booked this company about 2 weeks out from the wedding. As brides know this time period is ver chaotic, but Imaginola did their very best to reassure me that everything would be perfect. They've exceeded my expectations by far and I look forward to working with them in the near future!

The makeup team was amazing! Everything went as planned, which is extremely important for a wedding. My bridesmaids makeup was gorgeous and exactly what I wanted. I like how the team listened to my idea of the look I wanted and exceeded my expectations in the end. Wonderful experience

Indira has the magic hand when it comes to make-up. Her technique and portfolio display her wide range in different make up looks, from natural to colorful and dramatic. I have already decided that she will be my make-up artist for my wedding! She's not only talented but she has a warm personality that makes it a fun and enjoyable to work with her- what a breath of fresh air! She's awesome, I promise.

Chrissy did a great job! She did makeup for 3 of us and listened to what we wanted and executed well. We were all very happy with how our makeup turned out. She also arranged a hairstylist for us who did a great job too. I would hire Chrissy and Dominque again if I return to NOLA.

Wedding for my daughter at our family Lake House. Michelle Norwood and her team were so professional, great to work with, went above and beyond to make it a beautiful wedding day. Even though we had a set back with a little rain Michelle took it in stride and handled everything. I am blessed that I chose Exclusive Events for my daughters wedding. Wonderful people to work with. I would highly recommend this company for your event decorating needs. They are like family...

Jackie did my makeup for my wedding. I choose to go with a simple yet romantic look :) I was very happy with her performance specially with the fact that my makeup held so well in spide of the fact that is was so hot outside and humidity was over the top. I highly recommend Jackie!!!! And last thing.. Her prices are very affordable compared with what is out there otherwise. Hope this helps ;)

My husband and I are from Arizona and when we found out that Evermore Weddings and Events were able to fly out and help plan the wedding we were amazed!!!. They are an amazing couple who would literally do anything to make your day the best day ever. They are very professional and handled our entire planning process with complete dedication and grace. They have a design background and impeccable taste, which enabled them to fully grasp our vision and execute it to perfection on our day. Our wedding could not have been more perfect. Not one thing went wrong. The team they pulled together (and vendors they recommended that we hired) worked together beautifully. We were able to relax and enjoy our day completely while CJ and Dominick set up the ceremony and reception areas executing our vision exactly how we pictured it. CJ has incredible taste and asked us to trust her that day. We felt so comfortable letting them do their job- there was nothing we were worried about. It was seriously gorgeous. It really isn’t easy to pull together my wedding the way CJ and Dominick did and I could not imagine what it would have been like without them. Evermore Weddings and Events are an incredible value for the services it provided and I could not recommend CJ and Dominick enough. Great Job you guys! We

    Jacqueline did an incredible job as our "day-of planner." We were so impressed by her professionalism and her determination to make sure our wedding was a success. She ran our ceremony rehearsal expertly, and went to great ends to prepare our wedding party, coordinate vendors, and even bribe a barbecue party that had set up too close to our venue to change locations :) we will cherish the memories that she made possible. I highly recommend her services as a wedding planner.

    Stephanie was excellent the moment I found her on Thumbtack. She was very friendly and eager to help my big day become a reality. She was very communicative and professional. Highly recommend to anyone looking to have helping hands planning and implementing their event. She also had local suggestions which were a big help as an outsider trying to plan a destination wedding.

    Ashley was amazing! She planned my baby shower and I don't think I could have done it without her! She was professional, organized, and had amazing ideas to add to the overall aesthetic of the shower. She was also extremely dependable, responsive, and punctual. I would recommend her for any event.

    My attention to detail and the personal attention that I give to the bride, groom and their families really stands out from other planners. I make sure that every moment of your wedding is as stress-free, comfortable and memorable for everyone. For instance, I make sure that the mother of the bride is present for the cake cutting. My main goal of the day/night is that you and your family have a wonderful time and create lasting memories.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    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 does it cost for a wedding planner?

    Wedding planning is a full-time job — unless you hire a professional to handle the hard work for you. The cost for a wedding planner will depend on the level of service you desire. The least expensive wedding planner option is day-of coordination, then partial service, then full-service.  

    The national average cost for wedding planning is between $990 and $1,300. Costs are greatly affected by region, with rural or smaller-town wedding planners often far more affordable than planners in higher-cost cities. Here are some examples of the various levels of wedding planning and their potential average costs:

    • Day-of-wedding coordination: $800-$1,700. Day-of services can include the planner finalizing all details, creating a timeline, confirming vendors and overseeing all setup, day-of activities, and cleanup. The couple does all the front-end planning and contracts all the vendors. Time commitment could be about 15-25 hours, depending on pricing.
    • Partial service: $1,500-$3,800. Here the planner works with the couple from the beginning, helping contract vendors, creating a timeline, and overseeing all details of day-of execution. Time commitment could be about 30-60 hours, depending on package and pricing.
    • Full service: $3,500-$8,000 or more. Here the professional handles all wedding and planning details including working on design, securing rentals, getting the venue and vendors, and handling complete execution of the event. Time commitment could be 50-150 hours or more, depending on package and pricing.
    • Consulting: $50-$150 per hour for design, vendor, reception and other wedding planning consultation.
