Wedding Day Management AKA Month-of / Day-of Coordination is for the couple who have chosen their venue and vendors, and have planned the details of the wedding day (ceremony and reception) and now need a professional to come in and manage every aspect of the wedding day. From setting out small items like the guest book and card box, to managing vendor setup and timeline, then packing up decor at the end of your event, and all the major and minor details in between. Let me be your stress Sham-wow!
The most important reason to hire a professional Coordinator: when there are hiccups on the day of the wedding, the Coordinator will take care of everything without involving the couple or their family and friends. This means your and your peeps can (try to) relax and actually enjoy the day because you know your special day has been left in the hands of a season pro - that's ME!
Hiring a coordinator is an investment to ensure your wedding day is relaxing, stress-free, and the absolute best day of your life! From 3 hours - 14 hours of coordination, I offer varying levels of coordination services based on the amount of service needed for your wedding:
Rehearsal and ceremony management only (no reception coordination)
Coordination of event (no decor setup needed)
Coordination of event (with decor setup)
"Catherine is nothing short of SPECTACULAR!!! We hired Catherine as both our officiant and our month-of-coordinator. Believe me when I say, we could not have made a better choice!When my husband and I were thinking about our wedding we knew that we wanted the ceremony and reception to "feel like us", but we didn't really know if there was any officiant that would be able to do that or even if we knew what that meant. I initially spoke with Catherine over the phone to get a feel if our personalities would mesh. After an hour of talking and mostly laughing on the phone, I felt like we had known each other for years! Catherine is very easy-going and extremely easy to get along with. We met Catherine at our venue in the early stages of our planning. When we walked through the venue and explained to Catherine what we wanted for our wedding, she was so excited! Excitement that my husband and I had only experienced with each other. She was so enthusiastic and positive about our vision throughout the process. When I originally started planning my wedding, I thought in my mind that I didn't want to set aside any money in the budget for a coordinator. Between my mother, my mother-in-law, myself and my bridesmaids I thought we would be able to handle it. As the wedding approached, I realized I wanted my family and friends to enjoy my wedding, not work it! Hiring Catherine as the month-of-coordinator was more than WORTH THE MONEY! She allowed my family, friends and myself peace of mind. She worked effortlessly to make sure our wedding went off without any snags and the day could not have been more perfect. She also did this while officiating our wedding. I don't have words to express how amazing our wedding ceremony was. Catherine worked a script up for us after asking a few questions and she nailed it! We had so much fun during our ceremony-a task I didn't think was possible. Catherine truly made our wedding the BEST DAY EVER!" - Cortney & Josh, married January 27, 2018
