Do you include a "wedding day coordinator?"

  • We do not offer a “wedding day coordinator”. However, we do have a team leader here before you arrive onsite who stays with you throughout the duration of your big day. This member of the Amazing Graze team is there to help you however they can (be an extra set of hands decorating, drive you around the farm on our golf cart to take wedding pictures, answer questions from your vendors and direct them as necessary, etc.) Their goal is to do everything possible to help your day go smoothly and ensure your day is as stress-free as possible! (But we still don't consider them a day-of wedding coordinator.) We highly recommend hiring at least a day of coordinator to assist you with the goals of your special day.
