EVENT PLANNING - Wedding Directing - Paula and Tyler really made our wedding rehearsal and wedding day a success! It was effortless for us, we just gave them the itinerary and they ran the days like a well-oiled machine does. They worked very well together as a team and were always willing to be flexible with us when things had to change at the last minute. Tyler stepped up and was the candle lighter for us when we totally forgot to have someone picked out for that important job. Both of them dressed to match on the wedding day and looked sharp as a team, complimenting our wedding flowers and colors and not clashing. Paula took charge at the wedding ceremony, when little things caused delays or went wrong, she stepped up immediately and knew just what to say to reassure our guests and keep them informed on what was going on backstage (the flower girl had spilled concealer on her dress 5 minutes before Go time). Both Tyler and Paula also worked amazingly with the chapel coordinator so that he could do his job on the big day and keep the music we had selected rolling smoothly.
At the reception, the skills of Paula and Tyler shone even more brightly than before. Paula kept everyone informed of the wedding party's time frame for arrival, orchestrated the grand entrance to the hall with the DJ, and made sure everything was just perfectly ready for dinner to be served. Tyler and Paula helped serve the wedding party our dinners and Tyler went around taking drink orders to and from the bar in quite a wonderful fashion. This kept us all so calm and worry-free, and my extended family so impressed with their hospitality and organization. Paula and Tyler also worked double time to keep the DJ in line and playing what we wanted at the volume we wanted it, as he was not at all what we had expected or been promised by the company we hired. They were kind and courteous, showing perseverance throughout the entire day and night, especially with the spontaneity and last minute snafus that I had at times. Paula was always right there to reassure me that I was fine, things were going great and it was all going to be wonderful! She would also cue me if I forgot something or prompt me kindly when she needed information for her "next step." Paula also took charge of making sure the parents and wedding party knew when they needed to be nearby for the special songs of the night, cake cutting, etc.
To make a long story short, Paula Bell and Tyler Thayer were nothing short of lifesavers for our big day and they were on point in each and every moment! I cannot thank them enough for all that they did for us. Our wedding day would have been a total flop without them, but with them, it was a success and a fabulous memory for all in attendance, especially the bride and groom!
