Absolutely Awesome! Carmen Conner did an amazing job catering our Outdoor Graduation Party for close to 100 people on Sunday June 12th when temps reached 100 degrees! Not even a challenge for Carmen and her wonderful staff who assisted her at our event. The food was delicious and the service was outstanding! Carmen was a professional, calming voice of reassurance from day 1 when we were planning this event. She went above & beyond to make our celebration enjoyable & memorable for everyone!!! If you are looking for a caterer she is absolutely #1

The Roosterdoodles team a great job. They were on site on time and worked with my schedule perfectly. Susan worked with me ahead of time to make sure that my menu choices world work well together and work out well at my outdoor location. We were very pleased with the food quality, the staff, and the prices. I would recommend Roosterdoodles to anyone having an event in their region. Thanks!

When we decided to get an officiant to get married, my now husband wanted someone bilingual to make the ceremony more special for me and my family.. that’s when he found Reverend David Seidel. Since there was short time planning and we had busy work schedules; Reverend David gave us guidance and made sure to provide a good service. Overall was a nice experience, at the wedding he gave a beautiful speech, and we as all the guests loved the ceremony!

I love to throw parties and ever since I met this young lady life has been so much easier. She has worked with me on small projects and parties and also my daughter's fairytale style wedding. We are already planning my other daughter's sweet 16th and she's only 14. She does the most creative work I've ever seen. This was our latest event on a limited budget

    Omg, the food was a HUGE hit at our party. They helped with more than we paid them for, so grateful to them for pitching in when our event planner didn't show up. We have already decided to book them at all our events. My mom even wants to book them for her wedding in Aug!! :) Awesome family!

      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.
