Your burning questions: answered

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a wedding officiant during the COVID-19 pandemic?

The safest way to conduct a consultation during COVID-19 is virtually. Ask wedding officiants near you if they can have a phone call or a virtual appointment over video chat. If they can, make sure to ask them any questions you have about upcoming work. Discuss what precautions, if any, they have in place to ensure safety. You might consider asking if they accept digital payments or if they can complete the work remotely, without any in-person contact. 

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a photographer during the COVID-19 pandemic?

The best way to set up an appointment or a consultation with a photographer near you during the COVID-19 pandemic is by conducting an online search. Start by scheduling a call with the photographer. If possible, it may be better to use a video call service so that the photographer can get an idea of the site location. Take this opportunity to discuss safety measures you can take during this time, as well as whether it’s safe to complete the project now or simply postpone it.

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a photographer when social distancing?

If you decide to hire a photographer, see if the photographer can take photos outdoors or in a large space so all involved parties can maintain the recommended distance between themselves. You should also sanitize surfaces, avoid handshakes, don’t make any other physical contact and use digital platforms to complete payments. Speak with a local photographer in your area to put a strategy in place.

What is a mariachi band?

Mariachi bands are rooted in Mexican culture. Traditional mariachi bands consisted of two or more members playing stringed instruments, wearing regional costumes adapted from the charro (Mexican horseman or cowboy). Modern mariachi bands, which are likely what you’re looking for when searching for a mariachi band for hire, feature at least four members who play stringed instruments (violin, vihuela, bass guitar called guitarron) and one or more trumpets. The costumes have remained the same, but now trumpets are synonymous with mariachi music. Mariachi bands for hire often play a wide range of music, including styles originating from Mexico and adopted from elsewhere. These include jarabes, waltzes, serenades, corridos (Mexican ballads), ranchera, cumbia, and more. Mariachi bands for hire bring a festive and soulful element to a party, birthday, wedding, corporate affair, fundraiser or community event. UNESCO has inscribed mariachi music on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

Do wedding officiants offer remote or virtual services?

Reach out to wedding officiants in your area, and ask them if they can offer a remote or virtual ceremony. Some officiants may be willing to meet in person while maintaining 6 feet of distance, while others may prefer to conduct the entire service over the phone or a video call service such as Skype or Zoom.

Familiarize yourself with the social distancing rules in your community, city and state, and move forward only if both you and the officiant are comfortable with the arrangement. 

How can I find out if a photographer is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

Consult your city or state’s government websites, which typically have information on which services are deemed essential during the pandemic. 

For national information, visit CISA’s page on Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19. Here, you can find 16 different types of essential infrastructure sectors that can continue operating unimpeded during the pandemic. But some, not all, jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure.

Do photographers offer remote or virtual services?

Photography happens in person, but photographers may be able to offer other remote services safely during the COVID-19 pandemic. For example, they may be able to offer editing and other post-processing services. 

If you see that a photographer is offering remote services in their profile, contact them and ask what those services include.

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 are wedding DJs?

Hiring a DJ typically costs anywhere from $300 to $1,200. It all depends on how long they’ll be working at your wedding and other various factors. The cost to hire a wedding DJ is usually higher than the cost to hire a DJ to play at a birthday party or similar event. 

To find out exactly how much your wedding DJ will cost, ask for a cost estimate from several professionals in your area.

Does a photographer need to enter my home?

There are many situations in which a photographer does not need to enter your home. It’s not uncommon for people to prefer to have their pictures taken outdoors. If you're hiring a photographer, maintain safe distances, avoid being in the same room, sanitize all involved surfaces and conduct payment using digital platforms. You can discuss strategies as you complete your search for local photographers.

My wife and I highly recommend Kevin Cook. We had a great experience when he officiated our wedding. In the planning stages he was very well prepared and informative gathering our inputs for ceremony details as well as making suggestions where we needed ideas (such as readings and poems we might want to use). As the wedding date approached he was very helpful in making sure we had everything we needed. On the day of the wedding he was prompt (actually he was early) and he really had a great presence; that is, his appearance was impeccable, his voice was very engaging, and he brought a certain something extra to the proceedings. Overall, we were very satisfied with our experience and recommend him highly.

Vera did an amazing job with hair and makeup for my wedding. She did my hair, 4 bridesmaids and mother of the bride! On top of this she did makeup for 4 people, all on her own! She was able to complete all looks within the needed time frame and everyone’s hair and makeup looked great even at the end of the reception. I cannot thank her enough for making my wedding even more special by doing such an amazing job. I would absolutely recommended Vera to anyone in need of a hair/make up stylist.

For our tiny, last-minute, backyard COVID-19 wedding, I reached out to Sabina in desperation. All I wanted, at this point, was someone to play La Vie en Rose for me as I clung to some last shred of wedding dreams. Sabina and her husband stepped in and transformed my backyard into a sweet, romantic venue with their playing. They were both wonderful. The music was beautiful and they did such an amazing job of knowing when to play and fill in the gaps to make everything go so seamlessly. It was truly beautiful and the day felt so much more magical with them there. I can’t thank you enough for helping to make our day what it was. I’ll never forget the sound of La Vie en Rose walking down to marry the love of my life.

Unfortunately, I have to take back my initial 5 star review. I got all the pictures from the photographer back from my wedding and in every single photo I have a bald spot from the braid Jessica did on my hair. This was not noticeable in the mirror and Jessica should have noticed this, let me know and styled my hair differently or tried to redo the braid.. In every photo you can clearly see how uneven my hair was pulled therefore creating this bald spot on my head. These are my wedding photos and now I will have to keep them like this forever and I'm really annoyed and upset over this. The first photo was a selfie I took from my phone and from that angle you can't notice it, the other pictures are the ones from the photographer. The make up application was good.

Jess took beautiful pictures on my wedding day. It was extremely cold that day but Jess took her time and didn’t rush us at all. I think we even went a little over the time we decided for and she was able to get lots of gorgeous shots! She was easy going and made my husband and I feel very comfortable!
