Mr.Lawrence was the gentalman for the job. He was above and beyond my expectations of making my surprise wedding aniverserery dinner for my wife. The wine pairing was something I was unfamiliar with. So Mr. Lawrence was very patient and explanatory on a whole new experience that open a door for new possibilities for me and my wife. As for the food. Definitely five star, plenty to eat, and there was plenty of extras to take home to my boys so they can experience a part of our night. To finish off the review I got to say I was not exspecting the relationship I have established with Mr. Lawrence. The conversation was worth it in its self and can't wait to continue the relationship in the future. P.s I'm dying to try his crab cakes.

Shonta was absolutely fabulous as our florist! Our flowers were stunning and we received comments from all of our guests about the beauty they added to our ceremony and reception. We had initially begun with another florist and I decided to get quotes from others in the area for the same ideas. Shonta came in well below the other florist and absolutely did not disappoint! My cake decorator even wants her information due to her stunning eye for design! One minor hiccup was my throw away bouquet seemed to have been forgotten, but Shonta had provided for nice surprises like sprucing up our sweetheart table with flowers which I hadn't even asked for which was AMAZING! I honestly can't say enough wonderful things about Shonta, her ability to enhance an already stunning location into the most beautiful wedding venue I have ever seen went above and beyond my dreams for the perfect wedding. At our final meeting, she expressed concerns about flowers not being up to par due to it being the end of the season for their blooms and she provided for some amazing replacements which enhanced our 2.5 foot tall draping centerpiece arrangements even more! She even provided lighting for our gazebo which allowed for THE most beautiful wedding photos of the evening! She even came back at the end of the evening and helped to clean up! Our venue had told us she had been there for hours when I arrived at around 2pm and stayed until past 4 just to place down our rose petals at the ceremony so they wouldn't blow away with the wind in the early afternoon! I would HIGHLY recommend Shonta as a wedding florist to anyone in need! Absolutely incredible work.

I recently had the absolute privilege of collaborating with Denise from Brilliant Affairs and her wonderful staff at a July 2017 wedding. I was immediately made to feel at home. Denise and her staff went far above and beyond to make sure that both the client and her staff were being taken care of with the utmost professionalism. In my humble opinion, she has the capability, talent, ability to anticipate potential issues, and most importantly the obvious passion and love for what she does,and she does it better than any I have worked with. I would (and will) recommend Brilliant Affairs to anyone looking for a wedding or event coordinator in the future and very much hope that our paths cross again. Thank you Denise and Brilliant Affairs for a wonderful evening😃

Stephanie did an amazing job planning my wedding. She took what few ideas I had and really made it come to life. She was very responsive and kept me up to date with everything. There was never a moment where I felt lost. Stephanie also assisted me with setting up taste testing for food and cake. Before setting up the actual venue she did show me what the table set up would look like and where everything would be placed at the venue. All in all Stephanie is very organized and dedicated to making sure the wedding was a success from start to finish. I would definitely use her again for future events.

Lorelei is an AMAZING florist!!! She helped us work within our budget and recommend similar flowers to what we liked so they would fit better into our budget but still have the look we wanted. She kept in touch with us throughout our wedding planning and even did a walk through at our event site to make sure everything was perfect & exactly what we wanted. She was on time the day of the wedding (already setting up when I arrived to get ready) and her flowers were beautiful! They were beyond my expectations, my husband and I were so pleased. All the guests were very impressed with our beautiful arrangements. My bouquet was incredible! And Lorelei brought a little water holder for my bouquet and bridesmaids bouquets so they would stay fresh until the ceremony. All the flowers we had definitely looked twice or three times as much what we actually paid for it. I would recommend Lorelei for a wedding or any special event. We plan to use her again in the future for any events we have. She does really great work!!!

DJ Leo once again was incredible. He has been the DJ for multiple family functions over the past few years and has exceeded expectations every time. My wedding was no different! My friends talked for weeks about how excited they were to dance and the DJ didn’t disappoint. We used his services at both the ceremony and reception site. He had both venues set up on time. Did his role perfectly (playing entrance and exit songs for ceremony, announcements, and specials requests). He played all the music we wanted him to play. He had EVERYONE dancing. I never seen some of my family members dance so much. DJ Leo was professional, friendly, and high quality. I would highly recommended him.

I was looking for planners for my sister who is Orthodox Jewish and had very specific requirements around that, so we weren't able to hire Katie, but I wanted to note that she was the CONSUMMATE professional. She was very generous with her time and completely understanding and respectful of her needs. I could not have asked for a nicer interaction with someone I couldn't hire and had the circumstances been any different, I would have hired her in an instant. Where some wedding planners will be rude to you once they discover they don't meet your needs (I have interviewed several, between my own wedding and my sister's) Katie was kind and accommodating. I imagine it would be an absolute pleasure to work with her - and I got this read just off of our first interaction! I highly recommend her.

We were celebrating our wedding anniversary. I loved that Ronda got back to me right away, was able to adjust the menu to our liking and accommodate a fairly short turn around. She and Maurice were right on time, the meal was delicious and served with a wonderful attitude. All in all, we couldn't have been more pleased.

Lamide was hired in January to assist me in coordinating my June nuptial. Regretfully I had to cancel my wedding however through the process Lamide was an absolute God sent she took over the role of assisting me in returning a lot of the items that we had purchased for the wedding. She did not hesitate in keeping in contact to make sure I was okay. Prior to me calling off my wedding Lamide was instrumental in me getting great deals on my linens and decor I had to purchase. She kept me informed on great decoration options based on her understanding of my vision for the wedding. I will highly recommend her and will definitely reach out to her if I even plan on having another event.

Chelsea was my wedding planner and was absolutely incredible! My husband and I had been dumped for our initial wedding venue two short months before our wedding. We also had just switched new jobs so a lot was going on with not much time to plan. We knew our wedding date would remain the same though and thankfully that was when Chelsea was sent to us! Chelsea went above and beyond making dreams come true for us that we did not even think were possible!! Anytime things even attempted to become overwhelming, she handle everything every time! Going above and beyond is actually an understatement with the capabilities of Chelsea’s beautiful mind! June 10, 2018 was our wedding day and the best day of my life, and I owe so much to Chelsea!! Her ideas are genius and endless, and she truly is unstoppable making any party that much more glorious!

It has been a pleasure to work with K&M Royal Events, LLC for my wedding event planning. She is extremely helpful in navigating such an overwhelming process, especially when thinking of ways to stay inside our budget and keeping things organized. She will help with creating a budget, thinking through items you may need (those minute details), and she will help you think through what the vision could be when you need some inspiration. She is pleasant, punctual, and patient with her customers! Thanks for all your help in reaching out to all of these various places and putting the pieces together for us!

I hired Deserve Your Time to help out with my wedding planning. The consultant I worked with was extremely accommodating and supportive throughout the whole process. I tend to stress easily so I was immediately put at ease once I realized that Deserve Your Time had everything under control. The consultant assisted with almost every step of the planning process, from putting together guests addresses for the invitations to decorations the day of the wedding. I am forever grateful for all of the help I received and I would highly recommend Deserve Your Time services! I know I'll be using them again!

      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 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 do day-of wedding coordinators cost?

      A day-of wedding coordinator makes sure that every detail of your wedding day goes off without a hitch, and deals quickly and quietly with any last-minute emergencies. For many brides, the day-of wedding coordinator is their best investment! The average national cost for a wedding coordinator is $800 to $1,000. Although full-service wedding coordinators often charge a percentage of the total wedding budget, most day-of coordinators charge a flat fee plus an additional hourly fee if the day runs long. For example, a 15-hour day-of coordination costs an average of $600, plus an additional $45 per hour if the coordinator works more than the planned 15 hours. Another option is to hire a coordinator to manage the last-minute details leading up to the event; for example, 25 hours of month-of coordination costs an average of $1,200. Several factors affect the cost of day-of coordination, including the region, the planner’s experience, and the specifics of the wedding. If the ceremony and reception are in two different locations, expect to pay more than if they’re in the same place. Also, extra details, such as managing food trucks or setting up snacks in addition to the meal, will increase the cost.

      What should you ask a wedding coordinator?

      When you hire a wedding coordinator, you want to make sure he or she gets you and can execute perfectly your vision of your dream wedding. To find the very best fit, it’s important to ask these five questions:

      • Are you available on my wedding date? If the coordinator isn’t available on your big day, there’s no reason to continue the interview — unless you’re willing to shift your date to accommodate their schedule.
      • What’s average cost of most of your weddings? If the coordinator’s usual wedding is outside your range, they might not be the right coordinator for you. Ask whether the coordinator requires a minimum wedding budget. In general, the wedding coordinator’s fee should be about 15 percent of your budget.
      • What is your speciality? Some coordinators specialize in day-of coordination, some create the overall vision, and others act as a producer. Make sure your wedding coordinator provides the type of services that will most help you create the event you have in mind, such as selecting vendors and handling their contracts, or managing the guest list and invitations.
      • What are your ideas for fulfilling our wedding vision? After you describe your dream wedding — rustic or sophisticated, traditional or funky — the wedding coordinator should be able to suggest appropriate venues, menus, decorations, etc..

      Do you have a portfolio? Ask to see photos of their favorite weddings, especially if they’ve managed any that are similar to what you have in mind. This will help you see if you like their style and if their ideas seem fresh and creative.

      Do I need a wedding day coordinator?

      Even if you’ve handled every detail of planning your wedding, you might appreciate having a day-of wedding coordinator in your corner. Usually, the coordinator meets with you a few weeks before your wedding to put together a detailed timeline of everything that needs to happen on your wedding day. Then, on the big day, the coordinator makes sure everything goes according to plan — and handles any emergencies that pop up, such as party crashers, missing tuxedos, late vendors, disappearing bridal party members and more. Most wedding coordinators also handle:

      • Distributing the wedding day timeline to all of your vendors.
      • Coordinating all of your vendors, including the photographer, florist and baker.
      • Conducting the wedding rehearsal.
      • Helping the bride and her wedding party get dressed and take photos.   
      • Checking floor plans, lighting levels, cake placement, menus, favors and more.
      • Collecting the wedding gifts and keeping personal items safe and accounted for.

      Even if you don’t think you need a wedding coordinator, check with your venue. Some require that couples hire a day-of wedding coordinator for the day of the event. 

      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
