What made this day unique?

This couple were just magical while taking photos together, the love between of the two of them glowed.


How Central Texas Planner helped?

Upon arrival, the coordinator checked in with the bride, assisted with some decorating needs, identified where Bride’s and Groom’s belongings were, as well as obtained the marriage license. When guests began to arrive, the coordinator met them near the parking lot by one of the historic buildings, took their temperatures, asked them to sanitize their hands, and sign the guest book. They were able to tour the small building before exiting to make their way to the ceremony site.


To prevent congestion and keeping 6-foot social distancing in mind, the coordinator released one table at a time after the Wedding Party went through the line first. Once everyone had their food, the coordinator verified that the DJ and Photographer were ready, provided some advice and information to the toasters, ensured they and the newlyweds had drinks for toasts to begin. As the First Dance took place, the coordinator informed the Father of the Bride that he would be next to dance with his daughter, as well as speaking to the Mother of the Bride. The cake cutting followed where the coordinator assisted the bride and groom on where to stand, how to hold the knife and cut. The Dance Floor opened, and the coordinator went to work cleaning the bride and groom suites and tables. She checked on the bride and groom to see if they were good, and then went to work on cleaning the ceremony site. At the appropriate time, the coordinator went back in to make sure the bride and groom were ready for the bouquet and garter toss. The DJ and Photographer were then notified, and the coordinator worked with the bride and the girls on where to stand followed by the guys. Once the last key element was completed, the coordinator went back around to cleanup any trash from the tables, and then started clearing décor from empty tables and appropriately packing them. She then worked with the DJ to gather guests outside for the sendoff, informed the couple on what to expect, and then assisted with lighting the sparkers once the photographer gave the thumbs up. After the sendoff, the coordinator went back into help the family teardown decorations until it was time for her to leave.

NOTE: The bride paid for an 8-hour timeframe that ended before cleanup was completed. Central Texas Planner works with the couple to determine what timeframe works best. If a venue does not require a coordinator, the couple has the flexibility to stick with the original timeframe or update the contract to include more time if needed as the agenda is built.
