My name is Douglas Calhoun and I was raised by free thinking folk in South Carolina and now reside in the East Bay in California. I specialize in Day-Of-Coordination which is "wedding speak" for hired family. I'm there to make sure the well planned event you've spent months dreaming up resembles that dream. We meet up about a month before your party and you give me the run down (vendors, location, preferences, greatest fears, up to the minute wedding party gossip etc.) The day-of detail work means ensuring the table settings are just so, confirming the BOURBON THIS WAY sign is indeed pointed toward the bar, and making sure Aunt Julia knows how to operate the microphone when it's toast time. (Good Luck Aunt Julia!)
Keeping an event organized while balancing the spontaneous nature of this sort of party is in my genes. I come from a long line of men who provide a lending hand with a smile. Both of my southern grandfathers prided themselves on a job well done, one a hotel manager and another a shop keeper I inherited their instinct to please. (Like I said, it's genetic) I'm competitively nice and like to see things run efficiently in an effort to bring people joy. I get to facilitate bliss for a living and it's pretty rad.
