Eliane was great to work with she was very excited to help my hubby and I create a great experience at our wedding reception for family and friends. Jason our attendant had great energy as he rallied everyone to participate. He explained how the process worked and even made some costume recommendations. We did not have an official photographer for our wedding reception so it was important for the booth to captured the playful, down-to-earth mood that we were looking for. Jason help this occur. Eliane and Jason thank for the passion that you have for the work that you do. It shows in your hard work and dedication. My mom wants to hire you for her joint 50th wedding anniversary and 70th birthday party in the spring! We want Jason! ;-)

Paul was our DJ for our 9/22/18 wedding. He was super nice, professional and accommodating to our every specification. Communication with him was great and he adhered to our Do Not Play/Must Play request form. Everyone had a blast out on the dance floor and he kept things right on schedule with his exuberant MC skills. We couldn’t have asked for a better DJ!

My Ma' and I hired Betsey for a wedding last weekend and let me tell you, this woman is the best in the business. We really didn't know what to expect as I have never had my makeup professionally done and my mom had only had bad experiences but here walks in this gorgeous lady, all in black with suitcases of makeup and I was just shocked. Betsey is extremely professional and not only does she do incredible work but she is knowledgeable about everything that she does; half the fun was just listening to her stories! My advice is if Betsey is in your area, hire her! She made our experience, fun, relaxing and a solid 15 out of 10; it doesn't get better than Betsey.

Chuck and his wife Phyllis were wonderful. We enjoyed completing pre-marital counseling with them and getting to know them as a couple. Their advice was always very balanced because of it. They have seen so much in so many marriages that they are really open to discuss any topic and they make you feel very comfortable to be open with them. From our first meeting with them we knew we would hire Chuck to perform our wedding service. After the wedding our guests couldn't stop commenting on what a wonderful job our pastor did. Everyone was very impressed.

We had to hire a photographer last minute when I found thumbtack. Nicole returned my request for information and we really clicked. Nicole did an excellent job at our wedding. Even though we, ourselves, were very unorganized and running late, Nicole was patient, observant and professional. She kept us moving onto the next photos so that we could get all that we want. She took extra steps to make sure we were going to be happy customers. I thank her for making our day memorable. I recommend Nicole and Little Mac Design for any of your photo needs. She was great to work with.

First of all, Christine -- high fives all around! She and her staff provided catering services for our wedding reception in an open-space Barn. Christine was highly professional from the initial meeting through the end of our event. She and her staff made good use of the venue space and were very service-oriented that evening to make sure the bride and groom, and their guests, were well taken care of. She worked with us to customize the menu based on our fall, comfort-food theme. The food was fresh, hot and flavorful, and we received many compliments. In fact, guests went back to the buffet for seconds, and even some thirds (those potatoes!) -- always a sign of tasty food. At the end of the food service, her staff was quiet, quick and very efficient at tear down and left their service area spotlessly clean. We enjoyed having her, and her staff as part of our wedding evening. My husband and I give Pangea Catering service our sincere thanks and recommend them highly.

We hired Emmerlee for our wedding photos. She was very professional and did a fantastic job!! Emmerlee brought numerous photo ideas to the table, our pictures turned out great. Based on the photos we received it seemed like she was everywhere - there were numerous pictures we weren't aware she had taken. The icing on the cake - she was AMAZING with kids, our flower girl just about followed her around for a good half of the night.

I set up a bodiour photo shoot with Courtney as a surprise gift for my husband on our wedding night. She did amazing! I'm kinda awkward, by no means a model or the size of a model but none of that mattered. Courtney did an amazing job with making me feel comfortable and making me look great! We did 6 outfits in 3 locations for a very reasonable price! Best of all my husband loves the photos and book of me I gifted to him. I always catch him peeking at it!

I was having a hard time finding video for my wedding and received a recommendation through my photographer for MJS Productions. I reached out and he talked through his services with me. I was pleased to find that he was able to do my wedding for a really good value and be onsite at my wedding for a minimum of 7hrs. Overall, when we received the final video in the mail, it was so enjoyable to watch everything back over again. I highly recommend not just going with photography but also getting a videographer. It is so worth it, and going with Mike was a good decision we made. He was on time, he was a cool guy to be around on the wedding day, and he did a great job with our video.

Stephanie did such an amazing job with my wedding day makeup! She made all of the tweaks I requested after our trial and made certain I was happy with the look day-of. She also did all of my bridesmaids and moms eye makeup in record time, while maintaining quality, of course. We didn’t have to worry about our timeline or anything and everyone looked beautiful next to one another in photos. Thanks so much, Stephanie!

Patti was an absolute pleasure to work with. When we first started looking for an officiant we knew we wanted two things (a) someone who would be able to work with us remotely and (b) someone who was open to creating a ceremony that reflect my husband and I's differing beliefs. As we live in a rural area, finding an officiant was difficult let alone someone who was flexible, understanding, and sensitive to how we wanted the ceremony. However, we found Patti here on Thumbtack and she was willing to meet with us via video conferencing to help prepare my husband and I for the ceremony and our marriage. We absolutely love Patti and cannot thank her enough for everything she did for us. We wanted a "blended" ceremony where one of us is more spiritual, less religious and the other traditional Catholic. Patti listened to our wants and demands and implemented them flawlessly into our ceremony. We couldn't be happier. She also went above and beyond to help us prepare for our marriage. When we faced difficulty with the courthouse and filing paperwork, Patti called them up herself and spoke with them about what needed to be done. She worked with us through the Prepare and Enrich courses (which my husband and I found very helpful) in the months leading up to our wedding. We cannot say enough good things about Patti and we hope that you'll consider letting her be apart of your day!

Dann photographed my pre-bridal session, as well as our wedding, and we could not have chosen a better photographer! He is very professional and incredibly creative. He captured the moments and details that were most important to me in such a beautiful way. Most importantly the photographs he took were breath-taking and will be hanging in our home forever!

I asked Jenny to do the makeup for me and my girls for my wedding (10 girls) and I’m happy that I did! She got to the venue early to make sure she was ready to get started before we arrived. She did a great job and we actually got done ahead of schedule! Everyone looked beautiful!!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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.
