"I just wanted to take a moment and thank you again for officiating over my daughter's wedding. The ceremony was so perfect, you were just amazing. Jenna's Grandma was so touched, as the rings Jenna received belonged to her mother and father. It was really great that you were able to work all our wishes into the service. We have received so many compliments over the sand ceremony too. You did such a great job we just really wanted to thank you again."

"Ryan and Angie: We want to sincerely thank you for all your help in making our wedding day fantastic. We were  thrilled from the first time we met you and your family and we knew we  made the right choice with the two of you.  You were so instrumental in answering all our questions and making great suggestions that made things easy and helped relieve our stress.  Having both of you at our wedding gave us the opportunity to simply focus on each other and our friends and family.  We cannot thank you enough for how smooth everything was due to your hard work and efforts.  You made us feel as though or special day was just as important to you as it was to us.  We hope you will share our email address with anyone who is looking for references and we would  be honored to explain how detail oriented , friendly and professional you are.  We will make sure to tell everyone we know about your services so they can also experience the compassion, dedication and attention to detail you showed during our planning and the wedding. It is extremely rare to meet people like you that are genuinely interested in making the lives of others better.  We wish you continued success with your business and your family.  Thank you for everything."

~ J'mir and Noor, August 2010

 

"I wanted to say thank you for the really kind way you provided for Josh and Haley to share their love and vows with family and friends.  What you had to say really made the day special for my husband and I, the parents of Haley.  I couldn’t have been happier with your manner and presentation, especially given that no one knew you prior to the wedding!  We lucked out with a beautiful day, and the warmth of love shared through your guidance was perfect!  Thank you for your blessings."

~ Vickie and Bill, June 2013

 

"We can't thank you enough for all of your help to make our wedding such a success!  You nailed it!  And, it was absolutely amazing."

Wedding Coordination with Angie

 

 

I will successfully organize and coordinate your special day so you can enjoy yourself! 

 

You have done an amazing job planning your own wedding, hiring individual vendors for flowers, food, decorations, and music, which is what many couples are choosing to do now.  This choice has allowed you to add all the special touches that are important to you. 

 

Even though you have planned everything perfectly, you will still need the expertise of someone who knows how to bring your event together, while you are actually enjoying your special day.   This is the service I provide for you.  I am a coordinator for timing, directing and greeting guests, having activities announced in the order you’ve decided, and ensuring your day flows exactly the way you want it to.  I am your go-to person and I take care of those last-minute, unanticipated items that often come up during the ceremony and reception.

 

My day-of coordination services will allow your guests to relax and enjoy your wedding with you.  Without a wedding coordinator, the wedding party, family, and friends most often end up running around, doing all the last-minute coordinating, when they really just want to enjoy your event.  Do yourself and them a favor...allow me to direct your big day so that it can be everything you’ve imagined!

 

 

Here are the services I provide:

  • Meeting with you in advance to discuss your wedding plans (this first meeting is free)

  • Attending your rehearsal to ensure the wedding party's organization and timing

  • Walking through the venue with you (if possible) to ensure my understanding of exactly how you envision your day

  • Assisting with bouquets and boutonnieres before the ceremony

  • Organizing and timing of the wedding party’s entrance and exit at the wedding

  • Timing and coordinating with the DJ or musicians before, during, and after the ceremony

  • Providing information and constant support to the bride, groom, and wedding party at the venue

  • Greeting guests and making general announcements

  • Communicating with parents and extended family about seating, timing, and other necessary information

  • Directing friends and family to the guest book and gift table

  • Directing guests to all activities during the reception:

    • Receiving line/presentation of the newlyweds

    • Cocktail hour

    • Buffet/Dinner announcement

    • Toasts

    • Special dances

    • Desserts and cake cutting

    • Garter/bouquet tosses

    • or any other reception activity

  • Coordinating with photographers for pre-ceremony, ceremony, and post-ceremony photos

  • Delivering payment to the individuals who have provided services at your wedding

  • Making sure your wedding certificate and license are in a safe location

  • Staying through your last planned activity (usually right before the dance party begins) to ensure that all the above  flows smoothly

You did an awesome job!  I got so many compliments on the wedding--without you, it wouldn’t have been possible.  If I meet anyone that is even considering a wedding, I will be sure to pass on your info.  Thank you again for doing such an outstanding job for us--we really appreciate it.

                                                                                                        --Monica and Deshaun Johnson

 

Thank you for all your hard work, effort, patience, and enthusiasm to help bring our wedding together.  It was a truly successful event and we could not have had such a wonderful, relaxing day without your support.  You did a fantastic job executing all our wishes as well as those items that called for split-second decisions.  You worked well with all our other vendors and you were great with our families.  I will definitely be recommending you to all future brides!  Thank you so much for everything!

                                                                                                        --Kevin and Leila Vandemore
