Meet Christopher Forest, CEO of Unparalleled Parking, LLC based in Minneapolis, MN. Unparalleled Parking is a valet and security company providing the highest quality parking services to restaurants, hotels, and private events serving the Minneapolis-St. Paul area for over a decade. The Elevated Style Events team had the opportunity to meet with Christopher recently and left the meeting feeling inspired and excited to share this brand with you.
If you search the Internet for wedding valet services in Minneapolis, you’re likely to find hundreds of results, but you’ll only find one Unparalleled Parking. After observing the industry when attending weddings and other events, Christopher noted a distinct problem: “valets were being treated as parking attendants instead of hospitality professionals.” The solution? Forming a company that allowed him “to create an opportunity to offer clients a hospitable and professional valet option that reflected as an extension of the venue and clients we serve.” In essence, Christopher has taken wedding valet and security services to the next level.
What You Should Know for Your Event
It can be easy to overlook the importance of valet services at your wedding or event. You just need people to get to and from the venues, right? Not so fast. As Christopher puts it, “We want to be an outstanding first and last impression of the guests event experience, by providing a safe and convenient parking solution.” It’s more than just parking a car, it’s the entire experience you want for your guests.
Christopher tells us, “We can customize any valet or security package, from hosted valet to guest pay valet or a hybrid solution to accommodate budget. Regardless of the size of the event or budget we provide helpful, well-groomed professionals that seamlessly fit into your event.”
Talk with your wedding planner about the type of valet service you might need at your wedding. Consider if you want valet at the rehearsal dinner, ceremony, reception, and even for brunch the next day. There are many things to take into account. Consider location, ease of parking, time of day, and of course, your budget. We recommend our clients to go ahead and get on the books with a valet service as early as possible, knowing we will need to refine numbers. Once we have the majority of RSVP’s back, we can go back to the valet company and adjust our numbers. Booking earlier is always better.
The valet experience at your wedding or event should stand out to both you and your guests. As you begin your search for the best valet service for your wedding, you can email Unparalleled Parking at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions you have.
