Mary and her assistant were outstanding. We could not have asked for a better and more professional wedding photography experience. They met with us prior to the wedding at our wedding location. On the day of the wedding they showed up early and stayed late. They took over 800 photos and captured every moment, big and small. They made both us and our 120 guests feel at ease, and documented everything without ever getting in the way. I enthusiastically recommend them to anyone looking to photograph their event, and will call them again if I have the opportunity.

Harris delivered a funny and touching service at our wedding just this weekend. It was a great balance of humor and touching moments. We had many guests tell us that they loved him, and we were glad that we picked Harris to start our marriage off on the right foot.

Maria took some amazing photos at our wedding dinner. She was there early and stayed longer than we expected. It was a tight space but Maria still managed to get great photos of our family and friends. She also has reasonable rates. I highly recommend her for your next event! I will certainly be calling her next time I need a quality photographer. Thank you, Maria!

A Touch of Class DJs provided excellent service at my wedding on August 2nd. Everyone at the wedding was dancing, which is what exactly what I wanted! And Louis also had activities for the kids. I had about 15 kids. Plus we both our church youth group there who also joined in the festivities. Everyone thought the activities (limbo and musical chairs) were a great way to keep the kids entertain. Louis also provided suggestions for certain dances (i.e. processional, first and last songs, etc) and worked with us on the types of music we would liked played at the reception. They also provided music for the outdoor ceremony and indoor cocktail hour. They help set the romantic mood for the ceremony and jazzing-amotsphere for the cocktail. I also appreciated that A Touch of Class DJs was very responsive, whether it was a phone call or email. They got to the wedding venue early to set up. (We like being early.) A Touch of Class DJs were professional and it showed through there great work!

On my wedding day, I gave Mallory quiet a task! Mallory was both my make-up artist and hair stylist for myself, my mom, and my seven bridesmaids. Leading up to my wedding Mallory responded to all of my messages quickly and professionally. She arrived at the wedding venue the day of the wedding on time and began hair and make-up right away. Given the task of doing nine peoples hair and make-up is not an easy job, but Mallory did an absolutely amazing job. She worked quickly and straight through, one girl after another, with no issues. Mallory is extremely talented and I am so glad I was able to have her on the day of my wedding. (THANK YOU)

Adolfo and his team catered our cocktail wedding for 100 guests and we can't recommend them enough. We contacted him for cocktail catering but his service was not limited to food. He and his team helped us plan and manage every details of the night and suggested some details that we had not even thought about. The quality of food was great, service was professional, staff was friendly, we specially liked our event captain. Also, he and his team were very punctual and overall, they helped us enjoy our wedding without being worried about details.

Adrienn is my hero. I ordered a dress online and was surprised to find that the "built in bra" was just two floating cups between two layers of lace. I contacted Adrienn and she agreed to help. Rather than fix the weird top, she is building a completely new one for less than the alterations would have been. She has been great to work with. As a plus-sized bride there is always trepidation about dealing with fashion folk. She has been warm and non-judgemental and I think she will make me look beautiful on my wedding day. I highly recommend her, her studio in NJ is lovely and personal and worth the drive.

We are so grateful to have found Mark. His wedding video artistry gave us the best ugly cry when we watched our highlight video! He could not have been easier or more lovely to work with. He blended into the backdrop, popped out at the right time to queue us and self managed throughout the day. We love our video. Book Mark for your special day- you will not be sorry. Thanks Mark, appreciate all you did, Dana & Sean

Peter has taken the wedding party for my son, Michael and his wife, Fate, to a highest level that anyone could ever imagine. He paid attention to all details from the moment he walked into our house to set up the food stations, the bar stations and the kitchen where he and Jennifer, his assistant, worked. The food he cooked were very creative and beautiful and his staffs were so good in learning how to say the names of our Vietnamese and Filipino food. I strongly recommend Peter to any parties, whether for a wedding event, or home dinner. Thank you, Peter, you are the greatest (may be Momofuku should pay attention to the next Pork Belly bun with Kim Chi). Best regards, Kim

Let me tell you about Ross Decker. He is a professional marriage officiant and he felt like one of my closest friend's. We spoke by phone and by text since I work crazy hour's. But I kept him in the loop and even send him a link on how I would like my wedding. Since my bride to be kept changing her mind or keep adding additional items to the list on how to do a philippine wedding. He has done his research and we agreed on the right solution. Everything went according to plan even though I slowly turning into a nervous wreck. The wedding was a complete success. We were slightly off schedule but it work out fine. I am telling you, you won't be disappointed using his service for your wedding. Don't look at him as a Father, minister, pastor or a priest but as a friend!

Maxx did a great job as the DJ for our wedding!-He met with us ahead of time to help us organize the reception and develop a flow for the evening. His knowledge and experience were a big help to us as we prepared. The reception went beautifully! He did exactly what we had asked him to do. It was a Christian wedding and Maxx made great selections for music. It was fun without ever being inappropriate or dishonoring to God. We would recommend Maxx to anyone looking for a DJ!

Mr miller aka djtwinB did an excellent job with my 30th birthday party. He kept the dance floor packed all night and only talked when he had too. I've had other DJS in the past talk so much to the point that my guest didn't enjoy the music. Looking forward to your services again for my weddimg, see you soon.

Having Dianelle as my natural hairstylist is a blessing. I am African So far she has worked with my hair 3 times and all three of those natural style came out beautiful and on point and lasted for quite a long time. So many people compliment my hairstyles and is always asking for her info she she can do their hair too! Lol She knows what she is doing and does my hair exactly how I want it and at the end always makes sure that it's the way I want it and that I'm happy with it. She is very proffesional and does her work quick but always makes sure it good quality but also very caring and considerate and genuine .She also has great experience doing relaxed hair, weaves and other hair ethnicities so she does not discriminate! I've seen most of the finished products of the other types of hair she does and they all were beautiful. I would recommend her to everybody that want their hair done. P.S she has done my sister's hair for her wedding who is also natural and it was like a wonderful work of art. Everyone loved it and h hair got more attention then her lol So I give Dianelle 5 stars!!

From start to finish Michael Oliver was incredible. We hired him on short notice for our destination wedding in Orlando. His prices were very reasonable for the quality of his work. He is a true artist and his photographs speak for themselves. When he was onsite, he showed up early and made sure to work with us to capture every aspect that was important to us. We had a challenging environment for him to work him but he adapted so well and made himself invisible. He makes his work look so effortless. I literally had no idea that he captured such amazing shots at the time. He came up with really creative ideas on the spot and gave us a gift we will cherish forever. Every time someone looks at our pictures that often comment that they look like they are right out of a wedding magazine. I told Michael and I still stand by it, out of all the vendors we hired for our wedding, he was by far the best decision we made.

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.
