I specialize in “Day Of” wedding coordinating. You may wonder how that is different than having the facility event manager at your wedding. The difference is, I focus on you! An event person from your facility is a great deal of help when it comes to planning your day, but on the day of your wedding they are focused on the things related to the facility, they are not concerned about the small details that make your day perfect.


I go the extra distance that it takes to make your wedding one of the most memorable events in your life and that your family and friends have ever experienced. On the day of your wedding I’'ll field all calls from your vendors and even your lost Aunt Suzy. You can turn your cell phone off so all you have to do is sit back and enjoy! I will make sure that boutonnieres are on the groom and groomsmen and that the bouquets are in the hands of the right bridesmaid. I will be there to make sure that everything runs smoothly and on time. As a day of coordinator, here is what I offer:

Day of Wedding Coordination:

• 1 complimentary consultation
• Unlimited emails
• A final walk-through of your facility
• Assisting the bride in creating a comprehensive timeline that will be distributed to all vendors and members of the wedding party (it is essential that everyone is on the same page)
• Running a 2 hour rehearsal
• 8 hours of “Day of” coordination (each additional hour is $40/hour)
• Coordinates arrival of caterer, florist, décor, DJ etc.
• Ensures payment is made to all vendors
• Make sure wedding and reception sites are set according to your specifications
• Coordinates all of the wedding activities to make sure the day runs on time

I also offer an hourly consultation service. This is perfect for the bride who is making all of her own plans but just needs a little guidance from time to time. Please contact me for pricing. This can be added on to or separate from the “Day Of” package. Read less

I cannot recommend Andrea with A Gardenhire Event highly enough. She was amazing! Wedding planning can be so stressful. For me, it was really important to have someone I really trusted handle my day-of event coordination so that I could relax and enjoy the day (and so could my family). She helped me to plan a perfect day, and made our wedding itself effortless and stress-free.

Before the wedding, Andrea was amazingly responsive, and was available to answer questions and help me talk out issues. She helped me prepare my wedding timeline and other documents, asking insightful questions that teased out exactly what I wanted (even when I didn’t know it). She helped me figure out set-up and rental needs and truly went above and beyond.

We had a crisis the week of the wedding when my photographer got sick and canceled. I called Andrea, and she talked to a photographer contact of hers that was not only available that weekend, but also willing to shoot our wedding at our budget. The crisis was averted in less than 12 hours! The week of the wedding, she also solved an issue with our rental items.

On the day of the wedding, I did not have to think about a thing. Andrea made sure everyone was where they should be at the right time, and ensured that all of our vendors had what they needed. She ensured that our wedding timeline was followed, but she also was flexible and sensitive to the energy of our guests and the flow of the event. For example, she encouraged us to do a spur of the moment run from room to room during our first dance that ended up being one of my favorite moments.

Our wedding was perfect, and I would not change a thing (well, my tipsy uncle did accidently dump a margarita down the back of my dress, but even then Andrea appeared almost instantly with paper towels to blot me dry)! I have already recommended Andrea to several of my friends and coworkers that are getting married, and I intend to recommend her to many more.

In 2008, God blessed my Husband and I with Ms. Gardenhire as our wedding planner! Words could never express the overall satisfaction we had with her service. Without her, our wedding would not have gone as smoothly as it did and I must say without any problems to speak of. Ms. Gardenhire is a lovely woman with a lot of patience that is required for a job such as this. Not every day you entrust someone with such an important day as your wedding, but Andrea was awesome and I am grateful and blessed to have come across her services. Weddings can be stressful, but because of Ms. Gardenhire's flexibility, creativity, and understanding of how important our special day was to Keith and I, our wedding was that much more of a success. We still talk about how beautiful our wedding was and recommend Ms. Gardenhire's services to everyone!
