Favorite part of wedding day
My favorite part of a wedding day is the first look. This is a wonderful moment when the groom and bride can be authentically themselves and watching the nerves/butterflies fly away is something they both will cherish without even knowing it. 

Wedding day tip
Don’t be afraid to do something that isn’t a popular opinion. This is your day, and while we all try to cater to and accommodate our family and friends, don’t forget the real reason everyone is there; you! If you want something to occur a specific way, please let us know so we can help make that happen. 

Wedding experience
I’ve worked in the industry for a little over 10 years!

Hire Veil Events because…
On the day of your wedding you want yourself, your groom, and your family to be enjoying the day with you and soaking up every moment. This day flies by and taking one moment to handle a silly task like setting out place cards or directing a vendor can easily be handled by a coordinator. We are the insurance to your day to ensure that everything envisioned your day to be, will be!

Love for the industry
Simply said, I love love. Watching two people become a unit and bring together their family and friends is such a special moment that should be honored and cherished. Being a part of someone’s special day is a gift that I don’t take lightly but enjoy and remember for a lifetime!

I am so grateful I found Veil! My fiance was skeptical about needing a coordinator but now couldn’t imagine our day without Paige. Paige was an absolute joy to work with and kept everything running smoothly and seamlessly; from holding babies to bustling my dress, lining up the procession and setting up decor – she really does it all! With Paige there I felt completely confident and relaxed knowing that I could count on her to take care of the details so that I could be fully present to enjoy and soak in every moment of my wedding day. I 100% recommend Veil to everyone I know getting married, it is more than worth the investment.

It was an exceptional experience right from the very beginning!

I am beyond happy that my husband and I decided to hire Veil Events as our Coordinators for our wedding this summer.  It was an exceptional experience right from the very beginning.  They provided an amazing wedding planning system which included a physical copy of a wedding planner as well as an extensive spreadsheet that made keeping track of everything that needed to be taken care of before the wedding a breeze.  Paige, the Coordinator we worked with directly, was super knowledgeable, clearly had worked with most of my vendors before, and had lots of amazing advice right from our first meeting.  She met with me several times the month before our wedding, including meeting me for a very helpful walkthrough of our wedding venue as the day approached.  I felt at all times that she knew exactly how things should go and that helped me feel so relaxed, calm, and confident leading up to wedding day.  On our actual wedding day, Paige and her assistant Kendra did an amazing job of making sure everything was set up exactly as we discussed and looked beautiful, that things ran smoothly and were on time, and that any issues that cropped up were dealt with easily and efficiently.    I don’t think our wedding could have gone any more smoothly or have been any more beautiful than it was and Paige and Kendra were a huge part of the reason why.  Thank you Paige, Kendra, and Veil Events!

From the first phone call a year and a half before our wedding, through the end of our wedding night, Paige and Veil Events made the entire process a breeze! The My Wedding Planner document is an amazing tool to help keep brides organized and on track. Paige was there for me every step of the way, from talking through logistics to helping me find vendors. On our wedding day, she was a true godsend. From sewing my friends’ dress to running to the store to buy a tie, to making sure things ran smoothly… she truly did not miss a single detail. If you want to have a stress-free and enjoyable wedding day – hire Veil Events! Our wedding day would not have gone as perfectly as it did without them.

Hiring Veil Events was a great decision! Paige was amazing at answering all my questions, helping me plan, and easing any stress I had going into the big day. Her and her assistant Isabel were such a big help on the day of the wedding! They made sure decorations were taken care of, as well as making sure my husband and I were taken care of throughout. I highly recommend Veil Events!

We hired Paige from Veil Events as a month/day of wedding coordinator shortly after my daughter got engaged, and I am so thankful we did! With her years of wedding expertise, she was a wealth of information, organized, and very helpful. She answered all of our questions during our first initial meeting and was amazing to work with at the rehearsal as well as the day of the wedding. Paige made the wedding timeline and kept everyone on schedule so the wedding went off smoothly. I was able to focus on enjoying the day instead of stressing about all the last minute details. I would highly recommend Veil Events to anyone wanting a wedding coordinator! Their online spreadsheets really helped us keep track of all our wedding information from our guest list to our vendor information and beyond.

“Couldn’t recommend Paige with Veil Events enough! We had her for the “month of” option & she was extremely helpful. She responded almost immediately anytime I had a question about anything, and she’s very confident in what she recommends/doesn’t recommend. She made sure neither my mom & I were stressed & ensured that she would take care of everything day of. We had a large bridal party (24 total) & she was very prompt & able to direct everyone even with our crew acting pretty wild! We were so happy with our experience!”

“As a type A bride I knew it would be a challenge to give full control to someone else on my wedding day, but boy was it ESSENTIAL. We were paired with Paige, and she was the best to work with. Even with a busy personal life, she made herself available to us anytime throughout the wedding process. Paige was excellent with giving advice and suggestions when needed. I have always heard that your wedding day goes by so fast, and you don’t even notice the details. Because of Paige and her assistant Taylor, my wedding day didn’t feel rushed & I was able to enjoy being in the moment & enjoying all the details of the day. From setting up all the decor, dealing with wedding guest, and rallying the wedding party together, they made the day that much smoother. There were even littler things such as making sure my veil was secured, making sure I didn’t forget to eat or put on deodorant that normally would be overlooked. However, Paige and Taylor made sure no detail went on the back burner. I have a brother with Autism who required a little guidance and attention throughout the day. while I did not expect either ladies to take on that extra task, Paige & Taylor graciously stepped in to help out when needed. Paige and Taylor were professional, yet very personable and so much fun to be around. My mom was the biggest critic on having a day of coordinator, but by the end of the night she was so thankful that we had hired them. To this day she will say the day would not have been possible without them & I agree. I will forever encourage brides to hire a coordinator, because it’s necessary & essential for a bride, groom & their families to enjoy their day. I cannot thank our coordinators enough for all the work they put into making our day so perfect. Veil Events knows exactly what it takes to make all wedding days run smoothly, and they do it so effortlessly.”

“If I had to redo my wedding, I would definitely use Lindsay and Paige with veil events again! Some of the best money we spent!! It made such a difference to have someone there supporting my vision for the day for the whole journey. They were very organized, knowledgable, fun, and just so supportive and kind. Definitely worth the price. Our wedding ran so smoothly and all our guests said it was the best wedding they’d ever been to! All the vendors that Lindsay helped me choose were excellent and I wouldn’t have known who they were otherwise.”

“Veil Events is truly the best of the best. Our coordinator, Paige, was so incredibly helpful throughout our whole wedding planning process and especially on our big day! We had tons of special and unique requests, and Paige made all of them happen. The Veil Events team went above and beyond to flip our ceremony space to the reception setup in record time, and it was no small flip! Along with keeping our whole bridal party and guests on track throughout the whole day, Paige and Taylor also kept my dress in perfect picture position, and even fixed my dress when my strap POPPED at the reception. I can’t imagine what the day would’ve been like without our coordinators, true heroes!!

“We had the best experience with Paige from Veil Events! She was attentive, fun, easy to work with, professional and so personable. It was like having a really put together, organized hype girl for both the bride and groom. She made all our wedding dreams come true and kept the entire bridal party/family on time for everything. We were able to fully enjoy our big day completely stress-free all thanks to Paige. On wedding day, all we had to do was show up and she checked on us all throughout the day and evening to make sure we were having the best day (ever)! We absolutely recommend Veil Events – it will be the best decision you make in your wedding planning process!”

Nicole even brought me and my family drinks throughout the night so we were able to talk to our guests and not worry about getting water or drinks. I could not have done it without them!”

“Paige with Veil Events was absolutely AMAZING! I am so happy and thankful I hired a day-of-coordinator. I planned the majority of my wedding but started to get stressed and nervous about how I was going to pull all of the small details together the day of the wedding. As soon as I hired Paige with Veil Events, I immediately felt at ease. We had many meetings where we went over the Wedding Planning Guide provided by Veil Events and Paige helped create a timeline for the day of the wedding. I am usually the type of person who gets worked up and anxious about things going the way I planned, however, I was amazed by how relaxed I was the day of the wedding. I owe this all to Paige. She took care of everything including coordinating vendor arrivals/setup. She even had a handy emergency wedding kit that became very useful! I can’t say enough good things about Paige and recommend every bride hires a day-of-coordinator to help them make the most out of their special day!”

“Paige and her day of helper Jaclyn absolutely killed it! They truly made our day so special and relaxing. When we hired Veil Events and met Paige we knew instantly that we were going to survive the last few months of planning because we could 100% trust Paige was going to execute everything perfectly. She provided great recommendations and listened when something was important to us. I personally felt like Paige was a friend I could lean on all day. Reed and I would highly encourage anyone to hire Veil Events for their wedding coordination needs. On a scale of 10 they get a 100! THANK YOU!”

“Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value We hired Veil Events for month-of-coordination. In addition to helping us stay on track, giving great advice and ideas, and making the wedding planning process fun, Paige and the Veil team is the reason my wedding day was 0% stress and 100% joy. We had (very organized) friends get married without any help a month before us and they were so stressed working on timelines and details for the last month. In contrast, because I’d had clear and prompt communication leading up to the month of our wedding and knew exactly what to expect, I spent the last two weeks calm and collected knowing that I was in experienced, professional, kind hands. A great example of this is our ceremony was outside (my worst nightmare) but because of Paige’s multiple backup plans I felt confident that no matter the weather I was going to have a wonderful wedding day. And I did! Paige and the Veil team’s professionalism was also evident in their interactions with other vendors. No DJ yet? They got this. Lost flowers? They got this. It was so nice to know they had everything under control no matter what was thrown at them. My only regret is not hiring Veil for full wedding planning and turning over more to them as I think it would have made being engaged more fun. Throughout my wedding day, Paige and the Veil team made sure I had nothing to worry about and that I was getting everything I wanted out of my day. Worth. Every. Penny.”

“We hired Veil Events for day of coordination and clean up for our wedding. Paige A. was our coordinator. I cannot imagine my wedding day without her! She helped me stay on track with the timeline throughout the wedding planning process. She communicated with all my vendors to ensure they were on time, and suggested vendors when I didn’t know who to use. Paige communicated with the vendors about where they were supposed to be and when they were supposed to be there. She was there the day of to make sure everyone stayed on schedule/everything went smoothly. She set up, and perfectly executed my vision for the reception hall. She was there as emotional support if I needed anything. If you want a beautiful and STRESS-FREE day, hire Veil Events. I had my dream wedding and I couldn’t have done it without them!”

“I hired Veil Events to help us manage our wedding day and it was truly the best decision I made! I became very overwhelmed a few months before our day with schedules and timing and all of the day of details. Paige was our day of coordinator and we had multiple zoom calls before hand to go over everything. Veil Events has an amazing guide through Google Sheets that kept me organized and was always there for us to reference all of my details. Paige coordinated all of my vendors, attended my final planning meeting at my venue and was always available to help! Her wedding expertise is so valuable. The day of my wedding went amazing truly because of Paige. Anything that came up she quickly handled and kept the day so calm and fun. I truly can’t recommend hiring Veil Events enough, it was the best decision I made!”

“Veil Events was amazing and helpful from the very start. Within a few weeks of hiring veil events, I was assigned a wedding coordinator PAIGE AUTEN. We immediately started texting and was able to start sharing ideas with her. Although I hired her for month of coordinator, we still were able to call and text other and it was an easy way to exchange the smaller questions I had. The month before the wedding, two meetings with paige was enough because of how much we had communicated prior to the “month of”. Paige was through and had an answer for all of my questions. The day of my wedding came, and I truly never felt so calm. Paige had EVERYTHING in place. I asked several questions and she already had all of those things I needed. in place. The wedding day was smooth and perfect. Honestly nothing went wrong and everything went exactly as planned. In our honeymoon suite at the end of the night, we came to a room with a lovely card, rose petals and treats and food for a late night snack. She was so thoughtful in every single way, I would hire her all over again. If there was a way to leave more than 5 star, Veil events and Paige deserve it. They made my fairy tale wedding come true.”

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!”
