Spring is blossoming

While the change of seasons and the arrival of Spring certainly reminds us of pastel colors, it does not mean you need to remove black from the palette! In fact, luxury event planner John Tobey recommends definitely keeping black on the table; from charcoal and onyx to raven and ink, these dramatic colors add an elegant touch to a springtime affair. You may also want to consider adding detailed touches like smoky wine glasses and matte black flatware, infusing this bold motif with traditional spring hues of ivory and blush, which softens the overall presentation. Black is modern, timeless, classy and bold. You may be wearing white, but black makes a statement and accents all the other special details you have planned for your fete of a lifetime!

Day-of-Wedding Coordination

Having a designated coordinator to provide day-of wedding management means all of the planning and day-dreaming you have enjoyed is carried out to your exact wishes, despite whatever temporary challenges may surface in real time. Wedding day-of details, like the arrival of your photographers or the delivery of your cake, are the last thing you need to be worried about as you prepare to walk down the aisle. These minutiae can be handled by the professionals, so you only have to sit back and relish in your once-in-a-lifetime! After all, precise coordination makes for perfect execution.

Spring Wedding Coordination

John Tobey Events knows just what to do and how to do it well. Let us orchestrate review meetings with all of your vendors and manage all the set-up details of your ceremony and reception. We will confirm all plans; making sure your place cards, guest book, cake knife, server and toasting flutes are just where they are supposed to be. We can ensure all the important people are there on time: photographer, videographer and musicians/DJ, and of course guests, wedding party, parents and officiant! We will assure boutonnieres and bouquets are in place and programs distributed. Let us check sound and lighting levels and ease the reception flow and timing for dining, toasts, cake cutting and the first dance. We can coordinate with your point person at the end of your celebration to ensure collection of gifts and personal items, and handle all final payments via pre-arranged checks or manage cash tips as you desire.
