A Tale of Two Weddings: Pretty Place & Hartness Pavilion at Furman and The Cherrydale Alumni House at Furman

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of coordinating weddings for two couples that are dear friends of mine. They were actually Saturday and Sunday weddings on the same weekend at Furman, and the schedule worked out perfectly where I was able to coordinate both. It was a jam-packed few days, but they were full of fun, happiness, and very sweet moments.

For Amanda and Scott’s wedding, things started off on Friday evening on the top floor of the Erwin Penland building, where Scott works.They have a big conference room upstairs that was perfect, and we had a very helpful and efficient rehearsal with both their minister and ceremony musician in attendance. Check out her rehearsal bouquet, great idea for a first grade teacher!

Wedding Workday in Greenville, SC: Cliffs Chapel & Old Cigar Warehouse

I really liked being able to write a post last week before I headed off to the wedding, so I decided that I’d like to make it something I would try to do before each of the weddings I day-of coordinate. I was a bit worried that I wouldn’t have time because today’s going to be a pretty long workday, but I’ve been up since 5:30AM, so I’m not going to have to worry about that. ;)

Today’s wedding is going to be beautiful and incredible to work. At the rehearsal last night (which was above On The Roxx, it’s an awesome space) the couple was so sweet and so ridiculously excited about what will be going on today. I was brought on as their coordinator fairly recently, so I didn’t have anything to do with this, but I also have get an opportunity to work with some of my favorite vendors! [Read more…]

So, I decided to write a quick Saturday post before I head off to do some day-of wedding coordination. Since it would be nice to do a little stream of consciousness writing, that’s what we’re going with here!

Wedding Workday Morning – Website Submissions

My wedding workday morning is obviously very different from my bride’s wedding morning! Today I was able to get up early and knock out some emails.

One of my favorite things is receiving emails from my website! I love questions and, of course, requests for more information about my services. If you have something you want to ask, email away! [Read more…]

What is it Like to Work With a Day-Of Wedding Coordinator?

What is it like to work with a day-of wedding coordinator?One of the first questions I tend to get from potential clients is, “What exactly do you offer?” Since it comes up so often, I’ve decided that I’d also write a post about it.

Instead of just listing out what’s included in my day-of wedding coordination service, which is great for contract purposes but doesn’t provide the amount of explanation that some people would like, I’ve decided that I would write about what typically happens through the process of working with a couple.

Of course, I can only speak for what I do. Below is what has come to work really well for me and my clients, but all day-of coordinators probably approach things a bit differently. This should give you a good idea of what to expect though! [Read more…]

What is the difference between a Wedding Planner and a Day of Wedding Coordinator?

What's the Difference Between a Wedding Planner and a Day-of CoordinatorWhen you begin planning your wedding, you’ll start looking for vendors, checking out Pinterest for ideas, and making mental notes about all of the things you want to make sure are perfect on your wedding day.

Mostly likely, with all of those beautiful ideas and detailed check lists, you will soon come to the realization that you will not be able to do it all on your own. Even though you could plan everything to be just the way that you always imagined, in order for you to be able to enjoy and be fully present for your wedding, you’re going to need a little help.

That help could come in the form of an incredible friend (preferably not a part of your wedding party, they’ll be a bit tied up), but sometimes you’ll seek assistance from a wedding professional.

In this post I’ll go over what the differences are between a wedding planner, a day of coordinator, a wedding director, a venue coordinator, and an event designer. This will help you determine who you will need to seek out for your wedding team based on what you need as a bride.
