Hi! We're Chris and Veronica and we were in your shoes just a few months ago. We had our wedding in December of 2022 and it was a beautiful day!
But not everything went as planned.
We were extremely budget conscious and did everything ourselves (with the help of our friends & family of course)! When it came to the reception though, we knew we wanted to let loose and allow our family and guests to fully enjoy the night. Unfortunately, our venue required same night clean up.
Not wanting to put the responsibility on our family and friends, we searched high and low for wedding teardown services in San Diego, but all we could find were cleaning services. This is not what we needed; what we needed were extra hands to help repack decorations, move them out of our venue into a truck, and back to our home less than 5 miles away.
We turned to moving companies, but this was an unusual request for them since it would be after hours. Desperate, we turned to Craigslist, where we found a pair who said they would help us for a reasonable price.
We were ecstatic to have it figured out but when the time came, the Craigslist movers were a no show after several confusing communications earlier that day. Luckily, we have the best friends and family who stepped up to help! While we are incredibly grateful for this, it is one of our biggest wedding regrets.
Now we want to fill this gap for other San Diego couples!
