A beautiful wedding is not something that easily comes together. There are details that must be put in to place, vendors that need to be informed and kept on a timeline, family members with special needs, last minute emergencies…etc. Crystal makes sure that a bride’s wedding day is as flawless and smooth as any Elegant Affair.
Crystal is an excellent wedding coordinator who truly cares about her clients and their special day. She ensures that every detail is put into place. She works along side the bride to put together a time line and to tie in all of the details. She also works closely with all of the vendors the day of the wedding. She over sees setup and the events, as well as be on site at the reception to make sure the events go off without a hitch ensuring that one of the most memorable days of a couple’s lives- their wedding- is an amazing day.
I had the opportunity to document Crystal during a wedding. Please note that I was not the wedding photographer for this event.
Ensuring that the layout is exactly the way the bride wanted it….
Greeting the Pastor and going over specifics of the ceremony.
Talking with the DJ… Music for the Ceremony, names for the Grand Entrance…
Making sure everyone knows where to go…
Cuing everyone as they go down the aisle. Last minute reminders to smile and of course… fixing the bride’s dress.
One last peek as the bride makes her way down the aisle…
While the Ceremony occurs a wedding coordinator continues to work. In this venue, tables were going to be moved into the ceremony site during Cocktail hour.
There are a list of family members who need to be at in the Family Pictures.
It is the smallest details that make a bride happy and comfortable… Crystal went to find the bride after her pictures ensuring that the timeline went on schedule. Making sure everyone is ready for the Grand Entrance.

Leslie VelazquezAwesome blog! Great way to showcase everything that a coordinator does. Yes, there is so much more that goes into all the details of coordinating a wedding. I completely understand and I don’t see in any way that this is pushing or forcing brides to hire a coordinator. It’s just a helpful blog to let people know what it takes to coordinate a wedding. Nice job!
