Planning your wedding can be hard enough, so when the day finally arrives having to deal with every detail can take away from the magic of your big day. Having a coordinator there to handle all the details along the way frees you up to enjoy the joining of you and your spouse like it should be. The coordinator will be there to help you finalize your timeline, guide you and your guests through the rehearsal, handle early setup, and assist in making sure the day of the wedding goes smoothly.

Lead Coordinator, Daniel

Years ago I, an unpaid intern at a growing wedding company, stood at a wedding fair and was taken aback by all the magic around me. The emotional high of the brides, coupled with the high energy atmosphere, instilled in me a desire that pushes me every wedding to make each one as breathtaking as possible. Now, years later, I have come into my own as a wedding coordinator.

In the field I take the firsthand experienced gained from working over two hundred weddings with a firm attention to detail, and a passion for creating that breathtaking feeling only a wedding can create. You will find in me a friend willing

to work with you to make your wedding something you can look back to on your fortieth anniversary and smile.

“We Couldn’t have been happier and more impressed with Daniel. He was awesome all day and we couldn’t have done it without him.” Emily P

“We can’t say enough good things about him. He was our favorite vendor to work with and we felt he went above and beyond what a day of coordinator would be expected to do.” Katie L

Studio Coordinator, Daphne

For the last 12 years I have enjoyed wedding planning on a personal level. It first started with my own, then helping family and friends plan for their special day. I toyed with the idea of getting certified as a Wedding planner but life happened and lead me away from that. I continued to help friends plan and thus grow my love for it. Fast forward to 2013 when I was asked to become a Wedding Coordinator for a large church in the Twin Cities. In 2014 I also joined Studio Veil as their Social Media Manager. In 2016 I was able to add Wedding Coordinator to my other responsibilities at Studio Veil, and join along side Daniel, our lead Coordinator. It’s been such a thrill to help couples on their special day. I get to take the responsibility off of their shoulders and make sure they enjoy the day instead of stressing about it. I love knowing that at the end of the day they can look back and remember the memories, not the tasks.

“Our day of coordinator Daphne was AMAZING to work with! She was so helpful throughout the process and the day! She was timely, kind, and so flexible.” Tristan C

Frequently Asked Questions

What does it mean to be the point of contact?

Your coordinator will be reachable to your photographer, videographer, etc the day of to facilitate questions, bookkeeping, and timeline assistance. This means your coordinator would be called first if the florist took a wrong turn and was looking for the venue, as well as passing on any day-of payments or tips to vendors. They will also be available during the wedding day to keep things on schedule.

How necessary is a coordinator?

Some couples will never need one, and some venues require one. It all depends on the experience you are looking to have. If you are intimately familiar with how a wedding progresses and all the pieces involved you might not need one. Day of coordination is meant for everyone else looking to not have to deal with all the small details, and instead enjoy the event knowing that it’s in good hands.

What does the advisory role during planning consist of?

The Day Of Coordination cannot replace a full service wedding planner, nor was it meant to; this is an option for couples that are okay planning most of the wedding details (such as which photographer to hire, or which venue to use) but are looking for a little advice along the way. Your coordinator will be available to answer questions you might have and can serve as an experienced viewpoint in the planning process.

What is the emergency kit?

This is a kit specially designed to cover a lot of ‘What Ifs’ on the wedding day. It includes things like hairspray, breath mints, hygiene products, spare ceremony candles, etc.

When would the coordinator arrive to help set up?

This could be different for each couple, but it would likely happen 4-7 hours before the ceremony starts. This way things can be addressed and still leave your coordinator available once the bridal party arrives.

 

When do we finalize the timeline?

Typically 3-6 weeks out from the day of the wedding is optimal.

What does a coordinator do?

Your coordinator will be the person to help direct the flow of the wedding all day so you can focus on what is important… The wedding! After all it’s never fun to have to leave guests and your spouse to go let four different vendors know that you have to move the speeches/toasts back ten minutes because your best friend ran outside for a family photo. Your coordinator will be there for the rehearsal as well as your wedding day to help guide you and your family through whatever happens to make sure you have an incredible wedding!

Any hidden fees?

Studio Veil aims to make your wedding planning simpler. There are no hidden fees or extras you will be charged for later (unless you add services to your contract). The only things to keep in mind beyond the stated prices are sales tax for uncle Sam and gratuity should you decide to tip your vendors.

What about tipping?

As with any service industry, tipping is encouraged but certainly not required. Your wedding vendors are with you all day and help create life-long memories. One industry article explained it this way…”if you tip a server for bringing you a meal, why wouldn’t you tip the vendors bringing you the best day of your life…” Some people ask what a normal tip is. There’s no right or wrong answer. Some websites state specific amounts while others state percentages. The point isn’t the amount but rather the relationship between couple & photographer/videographer/DJ/coordinator and that each couple feels like they WANT to show gratitude in that way by the end of the day.
