Mauro was AMAZING! He worked so hard to make our special day perfect and I am so grateful for him! He was an amazing guide to us and he made everything smooth and seamless. I truly do not think my wedding would have been as amazing without him. I could not have chosen a better officiant!

Tracy was absolutely amazing! Every interaction I had with her was pleasant and she was so thoughtful in her preparation of our ceremony and vows. She even trekked through the mountains to conduct the ceremony when the weather was less than ideal and reworked her schedule to adjust for a major road block we encountered on our initial wedding day. I would highly recommend her to officiate any wedding. She's absolutely wonderful!

Mandy was a pleasure to work with. She has a positive can do attitude and wanted to make sure my wedding day went smoothly. She worked really well with my wedding crew and was proactive. Our weather was all over the place on the day of and she was able to run out and get throws for the guests when it got too cold at my venue. She arrived early to the event and stayed late to help make sure everything was taken care of. My wedding staff had great things to say about her work ethic and attitude. I would definitely work with Mandy again.

I can't say enough about Jamie and Scott and the amazing Black Iron team. They handled our wedding, and we received SOOOO many compliments on the tastiness of the food and the fun and unique menu. Jamie and Scott were incredible to work with and I truly feel like they'll be friends for life. I only hope we have more events in the future so we can hang out with them again and have them wow our friends and family.

    I honestly can’t say enough amazing things about Octavia at The Time of Your Life. She is an amazing wedding constant. Octavia was wonderful in emailing me back and forth throughout our planning by sharing ideas and pictures. She was extremely involved and worked well with my big actively involved family. She was with me every step of the way and thanks to her we were able to pull off a beautiful summer wedding on short notice.

      Every guest invited to attend your wedding, party or event is obviously hand picked and very important. Having happy guests who want to stay and celebrate with you is really what makes a successful wedding. This is often forgotten, and the importance is shifted to the work that is involved in planning such an event. Let your aunts, uncles and best friends fully enjoy your special day with you, instead of having to worry about tasks. Hiring a wedding planner ensures that everything will run smoothly and will be taken care of to your standards, so you can just worry about enjoying your day!

      About

      I am an event planner and also work on weddings. There are many wedding planning choices to select from in Northern New Mexico. Few of them have the extensive experience and attention to detail that I bring to your wedding. As a veteran in the wedding industry, I have seen the mistakes that couples make in hiring the right vendors and doing the right planning -- most of which come from being overwhelmed with so many tasks that in the end, they end up not doing any of them right. Let me take over.

      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.
