Day-of Event Coordinator

We require use a day-of wedding/event coordinator. While we do not require a professional wedding/day-of coordinator, we highly recommend one to make your day the best possible and avoid problems.

If you do not use a professional coordinator, you must designate a person as your day-of contact and coordinator. This person is responsible to provide general oversight on the property for your event including:

  • make sure rental items, not provided by your caterer arrive on time, are packed up for pick up, and cause no damage;
  • coordinate arrival of musicians, photographer, flowers, etc;
  • be responsible for the schedule and timing of your event to keep things moving from ceremony to champagne toast to cocktail hour to dinner and dancing; ending the event on time;
  • designating sober drivers if necessary
  • ensuring that legal thoroughfare for fire/emergency vehicles are maintained
  • overseeing that parking proceeds as specified in agreement
  • OLCC licenses for alcohol and food servers are on site
  • children are never left unattended at any time
  • make sure any loading and unloading does not take place from the street where this is a strict no parking law
  • ensure nothing is unloaded on top of irrigation equipment or that delivery trucks do not damage lawns, shrubs, structures, etc.

They will be the contact person for TGH representatives if questions arise, if license copies are not sent in advance causing event delay, that legal thoroughfare for fire/emergency vehicles are maintained, etc.  Coordinator / contact person absolutely positively cannot be the bride, groom, mother-of-the-bride, wedding party member, close friend, family member or other important person participating in your event!  Can you see why we recommend a professional?

You may use the licensed caterer of your choice. We are happy to recommend local caterers. The caterers must clean their work area and remove all trash, all dishes, serving pieces, etc. Nothing food related may be left on the property. We will need contact information and a copy of current licenses and liability insurance 30 days in advance.

Rentals

Ala carte!  Arrangements for any tables, chairs, linens, china, additional porta-potty etc. should be made through your event coordinator and/or caterer.
