It's been nearly a year since Garett and Sidsel were married! I figured now is a great time to feature their wedding, especially since I had the opportunity to see them this past week when I coordinated their friend's wedding.
Garett and Sidsel's wedding was beautiful! The weather was warm and clear. The bride and groom were relaxed and calm leading up to and on their wedding day. And the speeches were fantastic and engaging, featuring choreographed dances, songs, homemade signs, games and more! I felt like I was among family and friends at the wedding! I'm excited to share some images from the day with you! Scroll to the bottom to see the vendors I worked with as well as a kind review from Sidsel.
"We didn't know Jodi prior to hiring her as our day of coordinator, but our first impression of her was a very organized, calm, and experienced professional, and her rates were extremely reasonable. Our wedding was July 14, 2018. Hiring Jodi was the best thing we could have done for our wedding and family. Before the wedding day we met to discuss details, and she was always available over email (with very quick replies) to answer any questions we had. She gave excellent advice and was willing to accommodate any changes we made to our plan. On the wedding day, she was so organized and exceeded our expectations so much that everyone felt stress-free and worry-free about all aspects of the day. Her and her team even thought of ways to use the decor we provided to add to our existing plan, to fill in any empty spaces and add a little more beauty to other spaces. It looked amazing. Her staff were absolutely lovely and excellent at working their magic without bringing attention to themselves. Several guests commented on our amazing day-of coordinator, and two of our friends getting married in 2019 hired her for their own wedding!
I cannot recommend Jodi Marie Events highly enough. Hiring her services as a day of coordinator/wedding planner will be the best decision you make for your event.
Here are some of the services Jodi provided us with:
-Vendor recommendations, contacting vendors week-of, and making a detailed timeline for the day
-Full set-up/take-down of ceremony and reception, and transfer of decor from ceremony to reception
-Organizing groups for family photos
-Cuing bridesmaids and bride when to walk down the aisle at the ceremony
-Letting tables know when to head to the buffet
-Putting out our late night snack items
-Ensuring the timeline was being followed
-So much more!"
