As a wedding photographer, I have worn many hats. I have helped brides buckle their shoes, saved bouquets, calmed difficult mother-in-laws, sewn a bridesmaid's split seam, tracked down Uncle Joe for the family photos, coordinated the ceremony rehearsal, and I have even helped a bride write her wedding vows just before walking down the isle! These are usually weddings without a day-of coordinator, someone to help execute the details of the bride and groom's plan flawlessly.
Brides spend countless hours (sometimes over a year) planning and choosing every detail to create their perfect day. I highly recommend choosing someone to oversee and execute the day-of details (the details won't just take care of themselves no matter how well you planned/prepared, and there are always those unexpected surprises). While a family member or friend can be assigned the duty, a hired professional is always best. They know what to expect and are equipped to handle most situations in a calm and efficient manner. This is key to a beautiful celebration of your love. You can blissfully ENJOY your special day without stressing over the details.
