1850 Weddings & Events
By Hanna Wackerman - Mariposa & Yosemite Wedding Planner
When I first reached out to Hanna, it was to inquire about catering to be provided for our wedding by her fabulous Restaurant, and our favorite Mariposa Dinner spot “1850”. One of the first conversations I had with Hanna we were brainstorming a menu for my wedding day and discussing all sorts of other details related to my wedding and Hanna said “whatever you need, I am your girl”. She wasn’t kidding.
Hanna was there for me to ask any type of question that came up regarding the planning of my wedding, and she always had a creative solution. I quickly learned that Hanna was just what we needed to not only make sure we had delicious food for our wedding, but I knew she would also be just what I needed to make sure my wedding day was everything I have always imagined.
In addition to catering, I hired Hanna to be our day of wedding coordinator and I can’t imagine our special day without her. She made sure every detail went smoothly, and if there was something that came up she graciously and miraculously made sure that it was taken care of without us even knowing. Not only was the food delicious, but Hanna was instrumental in ensuring that our wedding day dreams became a reality.
Hanna’s high energy and great personality, along with her creativity and organization make her the perfect wedding coordinator. We are forever grateful that for all that she did to make our big day the most amazing day of our lives!
Our family had the good fortune to work with Hanna Wackerman as our “Day Of” Coordinator for a fall wedding in Yosemite. You’d have to go far and wide to find someone as delightful, hard-working and enthusiastic as Hanna. She has that rare combination of creativity and common sense and was able to understand and execute our vision for the day without missing a single organizational detail.
Our wedding weekend included events on different days at different sites and had many moving parts. Hanna didn’t miss a beat. She anticipated our needs and brought her own imaginative ideas. She handled all logistical details with confidence and calmness. Plus, she was just plain fun to be around!
Hanna went beyond our expectations. It was an absolute pleasure to get to know her and have her help us create a memorable wedding. I would unhesitatingly recommend her services.
It's hard to summarize everything Hanna and 1850 contributed to our wedding to make it our perfect day. We first got in touch with Hanna to inquire about catering through her restaurant, 1850, and I was so happy that Hanna mentioned she offers event coordinating services. I didn’t plan on getting a wedding planner, but as Hanna and I talked about the menu, it became clear that we would need a day-of coordinator to make sure all the small details went by smoothly.
I could tell on the phone that Hanna and I were going to collaborate well. She seemed to quickly understand my vision and I could sense her true enjoyment for event planning. Hanna’s style is a perfect blend of providing logical guidance, coming up with inventive solutions, and facilitating whatever crazy ideas a bride might come up with for her big day! Together, we walked through big ideas (like where people would park) to the smaller details (like color schemes & plate options). Through it all, Hanna helped guide me through the decisions to make sure it would result in a beautiful day.
Beyond being a logistical wizard, Hanna's personality really put me at ease. Working with her feels like you are planning your wedding with an old friend! The day of the wedding, I handed over the details of the day, and felt so comfortable knowing that Hanna would take care of everything. If there was a problem that day, I never knew about it! Throughout the day, Hanna was always close by, and I knew if I looked for her, she would be there helping with whatever I needed. Having Hanna by my side truly helped relieve all of my stress.
We couldn’t have been happier with our choice to use 1850 Catering and Hanna's coordinating services. Catering by 1850 was a huge hit; the food was delicious, our guests raved about their meals, and the service was impeccable. Hanna's presence was invaluable on our big day - she took all of our plans and put them into action without missing a beat. Thank you Hanna and Jake for your incredible service and for making our wedding day so perfect!

We hired Hanna of 1850 Wedding & Events as our day of wedding coordinator. She is an incredible wedding coordinator. Our wedding was beautiful and a lot of fun. We have Hanna to thank for a lot of that. Hanna worked very closely with us and our vendors to make everything the way we wanted. Our guests said it was the most fun they have had at a wedding. Our wedding wouldn't have been as smooth or fun without her. We don't know how to thank Hanna enough.
