About this Position:
The Venue Assistant role at Vista View Events is crucial to ensuring the success of a wedding day.
As a Venue Assistant you’re the go-to support person for our Day of Coordinator throughout the entire wedding day.

- Setting up (and breaking down) ceremony chairs
- Assisting the Day of Coordinator with setup and decor
- Preparing the venue for guest arrival
- Ensuring the venue stays clean and presentable throughout the entire wedding day.

A Typical Wedding for our Venue Assistant:

The main event! This is a 12-hour day for our Venue Assistant from 11:00 AM - 11:00 PM. 
You’ll assist the Day of Coordinator with placing all decor and wedding day items throughout the venue and outside. You’ll also perform other various tasks throughout the wedding when asked by the Day of Coordinator. 
You’ll set up ceremony chairs using a layout provided to you. Following the ceremony, you’ll break down all chairs, replace them on our rolling carts and store them in our onsite storage facility. 
Throughout the wedding day you’ll manage and maintain all trash cans and bathrooms. You’ll also walk the property during the reception to keep the property clear of trash and to provide assistance to guests if needed. 
Along with the Day of Coordinator, you’ll help couples remove all personal items and decor at the end of the night. You’ll make sure all trash is in the trash cans, all tables are clear and any rental items are ready to be picked up the following day.

About You:

You can take direction and instruction. You’ll be supporting and assisting our Day of Coordinator so it’s super important that you like working on a team!

You highly value clear, thoughtful and respectful communication at all times. You’re not afraid to speak to people and give instruction when necessary (Example: helping wedding guests find their seat, assisting the wedding party in staying on schedule, sharing information with other wedding vendors).

You’re a nice person. Period.

You’re reliable. When you say you’re going to do something, you follow through.
