{Blog Series} The Day in the Life of a Coordinator — Part 1 Desiree & Jacob


Now, that summer is officially over, our blogging summer vacation must come to an end too! I hope you enjoy the first of our new blog series. Grab a cup of coffee, sit back and enjoy…


Ever wonder what the process is when working with a Day of Coordinator?


I’m here to tell you I had an epiphany the other day. How about I take you along for the ride while I’m working with my clients before, during & after their wedding? You’ll see the process of working with a coordinator through my eyes.  And at the end of it, you’ll see the wonderful result and what the couple said about working with us.


There’s so much that goes into planning a wedding, and if you’re in the planning process right now, you can certainly relate. I wanted to give you a little insight when you become one of our clients and how it is when you work with a Day of Coordinator at Inked Events. You are more than a client to me— you become a friend. I want to know what’s going on beyond wedding-related things, I want to know what’s happening with you, your family, work, what you did over the weekend and anything else that’s going on.

I hope you enjoy the story of our soon-to-be-wed-in-September clients Desiree & Jacob! Thanks to Leise Jones Photography for these gorgeous engagement pictures!


Beginning the Process of Working with a Day of Coordinator

It was back in March when Desiree sent me an email to inquire about her wedding date availability. Desiree contacted me based on a recommendation from her photographer; Leise Jones Photography’s when she inquired about working with a Day Of Coordinator. Leise had just published a wonderful blog post about us & sent it along to her to read. {Leise & I met last year at a networking event and totally hit it off. We’ve been looking forward to working together ever since.}


After a few emails to get better acquainted, we found a Friday night to sit down & have a phone chat. We talked about her wedding, what she & Jacob do for a living, how they met, how he proposed and just a whole lot of other things.


During our conversation, I took notes about the wedding details and especially listened to what her concerns were. One of her biggest worries was regarding a rehearsal. Their venue isn’t available the day before their wedding due to another event, so she mentioned that she was going to have it on the day OF the wedding!


Now, picture this: you’re getting ready; hair and makeup is being done; it’s the middle of the afternoon on your wedding day and you stop and all leave to go to the rehearsal!


The Process of Working with a Day of Coordinator Eliminates Worries


I listened to her concerns, then suggested a few options:

  1. Scheduling the rehearsal on another day at their venue

  2. Holding a rehearsal at a completely different location the day before, or even a few days before

  3. Eliminating the rehearsal completely

I recommend #3 when a couple is working with a Day of Coordinator. I mentioned that if she were to hire us as their Day of Coordinator, we wouldn’t have to do a rehearsal. I’m confident in my abilities to get the wedding party down the aisle with no issues.


Let’s just say, she felt a weight lifted off her shoulders. 


I was happy to give her that peace of mind and that was before she even decided to work with us!

During our conversation, I instantly felt a great connection with Desiree. We chatted for just over an hour and I was so excited about her wedding details that I couldn’t wait to meet her and of course, work with her & fiancé Jacob. I sent off the proposal outlining what we discussed & what my services would entail.

A few days later, she contacted me to let me know they wanted to move forward. Excitement was in the air!!! 🙂 Love is in the air!
