Seattle Wedding with Marie Chelsea Events!

We recently helped a Seattle Wedding Planner, Marie Chelsea Events, to utilize CalUp for the first time. Check out this case-study to learn more!

Quick Takeaways

  • Large (400+ guests), multi-venue, urban wedding
  • Extensive use of guest text messaging to keep guests on track
  • CalUp coordinated photoshoots for various groups
  • Candid photos captured and shared with the couple after their big day


Beginning two months prior to her clients wedding, Marie of Marie Chelsea Events assessed and decided to implement CalUp for a large, complex, 400+ guest wedding in Seattle. 

As this was her first wedding using CalUp, Marie took advantage of CalUp Concierge, entrusting our team to assist for the CalUp setup and throughout the wedding.

As a result, everything came together smoothly, and CalUp specifically helped with guest communication and coordination.

Guest Messaging

In addition to each guest receiving a personalized wedding program, text messaging was used extensively for detailed rehearsal reminders and timings, transportation and parking updates in an urban setting, processional details, and more. 

All guests, even those who did not have the CalUp Guest App on their phone, received the text message updates, ensuring that everyone knew where to be and when.

After the wedding, Marie was able thank all guests on behalf of the couple for attending the wedding. 

Guest Specific Wedding Events

Photoshoot Coordination: Three separate photoshoots, all with different participants, were coordinated seamlessly using CalUp's personalized wedding programs and event specific messaging.

Rehearsal: The large group of rehearsal participants, as a distinct group, were able to access Rehearsal specific information, including dress code, timing, and best places to park. 

Candid Photo Sharing

Throughout the wedding, guests were able to upload their photos seamlessly on the CalUp Guest App. Following the wedding, the couple then had access to all the candid photos guests shared throughout the wedding, including the Rehearsal, Ceremony, and Reception, all in one place.
