Remember when I said I had a lot of things I want to do that I can’t wait to share with you? Well lets start off with a biggie!

Over the past few months, I’ve been assisting my good friend (and my wedding coordinator) Holly of¬†Just Dandy Events. She has so graciously been showing me the ropes of wedding planning by allowing me to help with weddings, styled shoots, anniversary shoots, and anything else I can weasel my way into. We’ve got another wedding coming up later this month, and I have some other exciting things in the works for fall.

Saying that I have developed an obsession with the wedding industry may be a slight understatement, and I hope to eventually start my own wedding coordination business (wow, putting that down in words is terrifying!). Here are some of the highlights of what I offer as a coordinator:

. Meet with Bride (and Groom) leading up to the wedding to organize vendor information, create timelines, and understand inspiration and design wishes

. Confirm all vendors and details the week of the wedding

. Distribute timelines and information to officiant, vendors, wedding party, etc. and ensure that the timeline is followed throughout the day

. Set up ceremony and reception sites

. Prevent/fix any problems that may arise during the day

. Distribute final payments and gratuities

. Pack up gifts/cards and ensure they are taken by a designated family member at the end of the night

. Break down the wedding venue so you don’t have to worry about any clean up

I also planned my entire wedding on my own before I handed it over to Holly the morning of. I’ll be sharing all the pretty little details with you soon. In the meantime, check out some of the peeks from the events I have worked with Holly!
