While our staff members would be more than happy to lend a hand throughout your event, there are many facility-related tasks throughout the day that we must attend to to keep your event running smoothly. If we've learned anything from owning a previous venue, it's that our clients have the very best experience when someone is there taking care of all the details on the day of! This person is not required to be a full-service planner that works with you throughout the entire planning experience, but rather, a Day-Of-Coordinator who takes all of the details and executes them on the day of an event. They will be working closely with vendors to make sure everyone is where they need to be, helping set up or tear down as needed, and lining up everyone to get down the aisle. With a Day-Of-Coordinator, you can rest assured knowing that you (AND your family + friends) can sit back, and enjoy your wedding day!
