Formal Weddings are filled with numerous “behind the scenes” details which can easily become overwhelming for both the bride and groom, especially the day of the ceremony. Our Wedding Coordinator will assist the entire wedding party to stay focused on the event as well as the bride and groom. It is required that all Formal Weddings take advantage of the skills of our Wedding Coordinator.
