Wedding at St. Thomas Episcopal Church

New York wedding planners Clavin Kelly Events distribute sparklers to the guests

Event planners Clavin Kelly Events distribute sparklers at the end of the reception! It’s a minor detail but I’ve see SO many sparkler sendoffs go terribly wrong. What happens is someone puts the sparklers out, the guests get excited and light them all before the couple is ready to leave and by the time the couple does leave most of the sparklers have burned out. Having a wedding planner on the job really helps with making sure that the timing of a sparkler sendoff is done properly.
