I went to a wedding as an ordinary guest, but I ended up coordinating the wedding ceremony. Why ? Because the company which the couple hired sent someone who has no experience in coordinating a wedding. Thank God I went there 30 minutes earlier and than God for the wisdom, I was able to discern something is not right while looking at the person in-charge so I volunteered to assist. When the priest’s assistant told us to start the processional, he gave up and turned to me for help. So I got a copy of the program and started to check the details. The Church liturgist or commentator has not yet arrived. Some of the principal sponsor were absent. We could not wait for them, so I asked for replacement. Thank God someone volunteered to act as liturgist.
Thank God the processional went smoothly, except for the bible bearer who refused to walk down the isle. I am not used to coordinating a catholic wedding, so I patterned the processional with my usual way of doing it. Their were no ushers to guide the entourage to their seats, so I let the maid of honor and best man do the job. Yes! I know the maid of honor supposed to walk down the isle before the Bride or some at the back of the bride to look after the gown, but this time I let her walk after the best man . I do not have the luxury to orient the entourage at a longer period of time because the priest was already giving a cue to start. I greatly thank God that my quick instruction was easily understood by everybody.
God really is worthy of Praise! With-out the processional would be a chaos!
It seems that every month I have a wedding to coordinate. This December is special, because I have two. Who’s next for January?
My best friend’s wedding is coming very soon but she just can’t decide the wedding’s motif. Will it be Aqua Blue or Orange? She both love the colors. It’s a garden wedding, so what do you think is the best choice?
I volunteered to make the invitation, so I posted the two colors here for your reference.
Aside from my regular work as an Office Administrator, I also coordinate weddings .I have been with this work for more than a decade now. I love this job because it is exciting ,glamorous, fulfilling and at the same time challenging . Coordinating a wedding is like planning a multifaceted event. It has many details to consider from consultation and planning with the bride and groom to the actual wedding ceremony and reception. From the invitations, flowers, entourage attires, food, giveaways, venue, transportation, photo and videography … the list goes on and on.
A wedding is the most exciting and unforgettable day in every bride’s life. She wants it to be perfect and memorable as it can be . This is the reason why as a wedding coordinator, I am picky when it comes to the photos and videos. I had a bad experience with my own wedding 17 years ago. We were left with only few photos during the church ceremony and reception because the 135 films my photographer bought were already exposed and not working .
If you are planning to tie the knot and wants to treasure every glorious moments of your wedding day, you need to hire professional and artistic photographers solely dedicated to capture wedding special snapshots. This momentous event has no rewinds so it is very essential to hire the best like the utah wedding photography . Yes, I can not help but be inlove again as I browsed their wedding gallery.
