How they work

They like to make the rehearsal a fun and relaxed setting, as to set the tone for your family and wedding party to feel at ease and in good hands. They will do Introductions, explain the process for the rehearsal by talking briefly about the steps involved in the ceremony and the role of each participant.​ They will work alongside your officiant to go over your processional and recessional ,rehearsing the line up, and procedure

They will have the timelines available to all involved and answer any questions you or you bridal party, family may have. This is a great time to exchange cell numbers with your participants, to ensure they are available for any last minute needs or concerns. This is also a great way for them to meet everyone close to you !​ They will collect any items at rehearsal to be brought and set up on wedding day such as: special items,candles, guest book, favors, place cards, seating chart, etc.

At the ceremony they will organize the bridal party, make sure everyone is looking their best, make sure nobody has their cell phone volume on, is chewing gum and generally looks pristine. They will cue the officiant, photographers, and musicians when to start and will then cue everyone when to walk down the aisle. After the ceremony they like to ensure that there are refreshments and cocktails awaiting the bride and groom in their bridal suite

​During the cocktail reception there are sometimes additional photos taken of the bridal party and family. The assistant coordinator will be there with shot list in hand to help ensure that no shots are missed. At the same time the lead planner is making sure that the reception room is set up and ready to go and that the photographers and videographers have captured all of the details before allowing guests to enter. They will also ensure that guests are happy and that there is plenty of food and beverages flowing during cocktails,all the while maintaining the timeline and perfect execution of all details.

During the reception they will line up your bridal party for entrances. Cue band/DJ, MC, photographer/videographer, and venue. They will be communicating with the kitchen and all vendors to ensure that service is impeccable. They will cue any and all speakers before it is their turn to give a speech. They will be personally checking in on you to make sure you are having nothing but the best time. They will ensure that they stay on schedule as best as possible. They will be on site to avert any potential issues. If there is an issue, their goal is to draw on their years of experience and to quietly and quickly find a solution so that you never even know about it

Unlike many other wedding planning companies they don’t leave until the bride and groom do. That means they stay until the very end. They want you to end the best night of your life on a high note. They don’t want you cleaning up, shlepping boxes and gifts or generally having to worry about anything at all. They will make sure all of your gifts and personal belongings make it home with you.
