Wow, wow, wow!
Amber planned our 25-person intimate wedding ceremony at my family’s home on Camano Island, and also a 90-person reception the next day in Seattle at Dockside at Duke’s. She worked with us for over a year and half, through COVID and ever-changing restrictions (up to the week of!) and was sole reason our wedding weekend was so effortlessly stress free for me and my new husband. She was so communicative and detailed; I loved her lists and timelines – they were a lifesaver! It’s clear she takes pride in what she does, and it all came together so beautifully! She provided vendor recommendations and they were all perfect and successful! I felt totally comfortable having Amber pick our dream team – they are the experts! I had to give very little instruction and guidance and the end results were everything I could dream of. It was such a joy to work with Amber and I really don’t know how we could have done it without her, especially in these crazy times! In the midst of stressful venue and state restriction changes, she kept us updated in an informative, but calming way! I never had any doubts that Amber would make it all work out in the end. Amber and her team definitely know what they are doing – I would entrust her with any wedding or event planning! Highly, highly recommend – if you want to trust that someone is taking care of everything for you with nothing to worry about – Amber is your woman! Thank you A.Renee Weddings & Events! – Kelley & CalebSent on 06/14/2021

Incredible planner even during these difficult times
Not sure there’s much more we can add to what the glowing reviews here have already said about Amber. She is a consummate professional, with a wealth of experience and strong reputation in the industry here in WA. She is patient and genuinely cares about her clients—who they are and what’s important to them—and goes above and beyond to ensure her couples have the wedding of their dreams, even if this means planning and re-planning a wedding multiple times over due to the impact of COVID-19 for a couple living on the opposite side of the country.Sent on 11/22/2020
We hired Amber around the middle of 2019 to provide Partial Planning & Design services for our May 2020 wedding. Not long after hiring her, Amber got to work helping us with vendor-booking. For nearly every type of vendor—from caterer to photographer (and even things like stationery or wedding website platform)—she would provide ~3 initial recommendations based on our wedding vision and vendor availability (which she would have already confirmed). In every case, we ended up going with one of her initial picks because they’d always be spot-on. As a result, we were able to assemble our wedding vendor dream team, who were all absolutely fantastic to work with. Because my (then) fiance and I were in NYC, most of our planning was done through email, but when we came to WA for the holidays, Amber was gracious enough to book multiple meetings with us to work out a huge chunk of the planning details in-person. By the beginning of 2020, we were feeling like our wedding vision was coming to life. Needless to say, COVID-19 really upended that.
While my fiance and I spent the last couple weeks of March and into April contemplating the difficult decision to postpone our wedding, Amber was already getting in touch with our venue and vendors about our options. When we did decide to postpone our wedding to October, she was incredibly supportive of us and immediately started working with our vendors to put the updated contracts together. With every shift in the guidelines & restrictions coming down from the governor, Amber was on top of it, helping us find the best solution under the latest circumstances and giving so much of her time and emotional support to us in the process.
To conclude, our wedding day wasn’t quite what we had envisioned at the start of the year, but it could not have turned out more perfect, and we credit so much of that to Amber. We felt at ease the entire day and we had so much time to just enjoy ourselves and take in the occasion—including the gorgeous designs that Amber had a hand in planning. My husband and I are so grateful to have had the chance to work with Amber; she was there with us through it all and, quite simply, the best purchase decision we could’ve made for our wedding.

I cannot thank Amber enough for helping us with our Covid Wedding! We had originally booked Amber as our planner back in Feb 2019 for our June 2020 wedding. Unfortunately, covid hit and we had to replan our perfect day, but Amber made plan A, plan B, and we finally settled on plan C. She was attentive to our wants and needs, planned a GORGEOUS design, had amazing recommendations and executed our plan C wedding like it was our original plan. If it were not for Amber my husband and I would have given up on a wedding... Amber was our shoulder to lean on with all of our worries especially with restrictions and she handled it so gracefully that when I was done talking with her I felt so much ease going onto our next step in the planning process. Do yourself a favor and hire A.Renee weddings & events for your special day!Sent on 11/11/2020
Full service planning and event coordination...what more can you ask for? We have heard so many great things about this company.
Amber is an amazing planner! She gets all the details checked off the list. She is easy to communicate with and not only understands the small details but the big picture as well. I enjoy working with her, everything is always put together and smooth.
As a wedding photographer (Luma Weddings), I work with many planners and coordinators. Amber from start to finish was a true pleasure. She had a calm, cool, and collected demeanor while maintaining an outstanding attention to detail. Her planning was so helpful to help me capture the couples' wedding day with the attention it deserved. Hire Amber. You won't be disappointed.
