Day of Coordination Services:

Unlike a wedding planner, a Day of Coordinator is for brides and grooms who want to do most of the initial planning themselves, but when their wedding day arrives, they want a professional there to make sure the day goes smoothly. A coordinator’s job is to always be thinking one step ahead of what’s actually happening, so the day runs smoothly.

Too often, brides rely on family and friends to help carry out plans on the day of their wedding. By asking a friend or family member to take on this stressful task, that person will not be able to enjoy the event as a guest.

Why Do you need a wedding coordinator?

When you picture your wedding day, do you picture any of these things…

  • You and your bridesmaids lighting candles.
  • Telling the Ushers to start seating your guest.
  • Helping your 3 year old flower girl get down the aisle right before YOU do.
  • Making sure your Photo Booth is set up in the right corner of the venue.
  • Restocking your candy bar at 9pm.

I don’t think so! You don’t want to be stressed out about those little things on your big day. We are here to help you, so you and your family can relax and have a perfect time!

I’ve worked in the wedding business for many years now, and I love helping couples and their families celebrate a huge milestone! I love making sure that everyone stays stress-free and living in the moment and making memories!

First looks are my absolute fav! You watch the butterflies fly away and the true love for each other fly-in. It’s truly a beautiful moment that a Bride & Groom will remember forever! I’ve also enjoyed pulling off a secret surprise at a wedding for either the guests, parents, or bride & groom! Wedding day is so much fun! If you’re looking for a wedding coordinator. Contact us at Veil Events, and we can’t wait to help coordinate your special day! 

Why You Love Working Weddings: I love helping couples and their families celebrate a huge milestone! I love making sure that everyone stays stress free and living in the moment and making memories!

 

Why is it important for a bride to hire a wedding coordinator?
I think the most important reason to hire a wedding coordinator is to just alleviate the stress of day of preparations. Having a wedding coordinator allows for the bride, bride’s mom and mother-in-law, and remaining family to have a great day without the added stress of making sure every little detail is handled.

 

How and when did you start in the wedding industry?
I started in the wedding industry in 2015 just helping friends through their weddings to make sure their days went off perfectly. I signed on with Lindsay Kooser in 2018 to become one of her many wedding coordinators to help brides receive the same love an attention as I did.

 

What is your favorite part of wedding day?
My favorite part of a wedding day is watching the bride and groom meet for the first time. That first look is so genuine and precious that it can only be understood by those that have filled those shoes before, but it is a memory that you will always cherish. Makes all the hardwork feel worth it.

I’m forever thankful for these girls and how much they made my day! They are the BEST!

“I knew from day 1 that I wanted Veil Events to be apart of my wedding day because they were apart of my best friends big day. & I saw how they went above AND beyond for her. Paige was there for me throughout my entire engagement and was always ready and willing to help. She even made sure I knew she was one text away if I needed her for absolutely anything- even the stress of the big day approaching. I highly recommend Veil Events – they will make the process smooth, organized and just plain LOVELY. The wedding planning guide was extremely helpful and sets them apart from other coordinators (although they were truly the only coordinator I was even considering). I used it up until my big day as it was an easy guide to refer back to and had everything I needed- from each vendor down to their phone numbers. We chose to add on the end of the night service and I mean to tell you Kaylie was an angel. She knew exactly what needed to be done and was SO helpful. This was an important service to add on and I don’t know how brides go without. I truly could cry writing this – I am forever thankful for these girls and how much they made my day! They are the BEST!”

I found much more than a day-of-coordinator!

I was searching for a day-of-coordinator for my wedding. Blooms on Boswell mentioned Lindsay and Veil Events. I found much more than a day-of-coordinator! Right away, they sent me a spreadsheet to fill out. The process seemed overwhelming at first, but Paige guided me through what I needed to include. It was wonderful to have everything from the vendor’s information, photo list for the photographer to a detailed timeline all in one place. The organization made the day flow smoothly! If anything went wrong, I didn’t hear about it. I was able to enjoy the day without worry. I never once felt rushed. Above all else, Paige felt like an ally. When my vision was muddied by everyone else’s vision or expectations, Paige helped me realize what I wanted and she stuck to it!
If a friend of mine were to hire your coordinator from Veil Events. I say, “girl, you made the best decision of your life… next to marrying your love, of course.” The wedding guide made all the difference. The process was much more streamlined than other planning guides I looked at. It was okay that I didn’t have all the answers. Especially, as a Covid bride. I replanned my wedding 3 times! Despite the uncertainty and unknowns, the Planning Guide was my go-to document for organization and calming my anxiety. The guide also made communication between my coordinator, Paige, my mom and vendors much easier!
Veil Events referred to me was ACA Rental. Listen, ACA has THE most beautiful rentals. They have Farm tables, backdrops, linens you will actually want to look at, and chairs that you wouldn’t even think of covering. The planning for my wedding changed frequently. ACA was accommodating and prompt. Their prices might be a bit higher, but 100% worth if for quality items.
Due to Covid, we held our ceremony and reception in the middle of the woods… It was no small feat. We had to build a venue from the ground up. Paige visited the property and gave wonderful advice. Every detail was considered. Despite having multiple weddings to attend to, I felt like I was the only bride she was thinking about. Paige was available and willing to approach any challenge. That girl can think on her feet!

Paige Took Care of Everything:

“Our wedding day was stress free thanks to Veil Events! In attempt to save money, we weren’t going to hire a wedding coordinator, however, after finding Veil Events at the price they charge, it would have been silly not to, and I’m so glad we did! When I hired Veil Events, I thought I had most of my details planned out, but the guide they provided me helped pinpoint different ideas that I hadn’t even thought of. Paige, our day of coordinator, was amazing and drove to Kansas City to meet with me one on one, no questions asked. The day of the rehearsal dinner, she came to my house to transport the decorations and reception items to limit what me and my family would have to transport. The day of the wedding, she took care of EVERYTHING. I felt like I could truly enjoy our wedding day without the stress of the details. I’ve already recommended Veil Events to my friends beginning to plan their wedding and will continue to do so in the future!” Mrs. Sierra Henness {Bride Wedding Date 4.28.2019} – Heritage Hall |  Liberty, Mo

Wedding Planning Guide Was Extremely Helpful!

“Hiring Veil Events was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Our wedding coordinator, Paige, helped me make decisions while wedding planning by giving her professional advice and putting together a detailed timeline to make sure that things ran smoothly on our big day. Wedding day was a breeze thanks to Paige and my husband and I, along with my friends and family, were able to relax and enjoy the day knowing that everything was being taken care and in good hands. My husband, who was a little unsure about hiring a wedding coordinator, was even raving about how amazing Paige was and said that hiring her was without a doubt worth every penny. I can’t imagine going through wedding day without a coordinator and would confidently recommend Veil Events to any bride!

The Wedding Planning Guide was an extremely helpful tool to use while wedding planning. Lindsay thought of it all when designing this guide and it is so helpful to keep track of vendors, budget, checklists and timelines. It is a great way to stay organized and on top of things in the craziness that wedding planning can bring.”  Mrs. Taylor Christopher {Bride Wedding Date 8.24.2019} – The Foundry Event

They Made Everything Easy

“I cannot speak highly enough about Veil Events!!! From the moment I began working with these ladies, they made everything so easy. They were always available and met with me numerous times before my wedding day. My personal wedding planner was professional, friendly, and made me feel like my wedding day was as important to her as it was to me. She didn’t miss a detail in the planning, decorating, and execution of the entire day. I honestly didn’t have to worry about a single thing and was able to enjoy my wedding day to the fullest!! I HIGHLY recommend Veil Events if you are looking for a vendor to help make your wedding day memorable and as stress free as possible!!!.”  Mrs. Stacy Schreiner-Stewart {Bride Wedding Date 5.3.2019} – The Foundry Event Center

She Made An Incredible Timeline For Us:

“I cannot say enough good words about Paige, Lindsay, and Veil Events. From the day we hired Paige Auten, she was a resource for any questions we had all the way through wedding day. She made an incredible timeline for us, gave us great advice on wedding day decisions, and made wedding day a BREEZE. I was able to fully enjoy and take in every little moment of wedding day because I knew Paige was taking care of everything. Caden even mentioned how grateful he was that we had hired Paige because he knew how much of a burden that took off of me. We are so extremely grateful that we had Paige on our side for wedding day, it truly was the best day ever.”
