    Professional, Efficient, Fun To Work With!

    Working with Amber made planning our wedding from across the country a breeze! She is calm and collected, honest, efficient, organized, really a true pleasure to work with. My husband and I never felt pressured to make any sudden decisions. She is always transparent and provided variety of options that respected our budget. Most importantly, Amber would always create an inviting space for us to be ourselves during the entire planning process, and that is what we loved most about working with A. Renee Weddings & Events!

    Truly the BEST

    Working with Amber was hands down THE BEST decision we made for our wedding. We were one of the many pandemic couples who ended up having to postpone our wedding date twice between 2020 and 2021. Amber was there every step of the way, handled everything seamlessly, and went above and beyond to ensure we ended up having the best wedding. When we were first interviewing wedding planners after we had gotten engaged (2018), Amber came extremely prepared with examples of her work and sample files of how she plans/executes weddings. She was head and shoulders above anyone else we interviewed and we immediately knew she was the one.

    During the planning process, Amber was always there to answer my endless amount of questions and help me with my extreme indecisiveness. She is very organized and kept us on track for all things for our wedding (both financially and timeline-wise). She is very honest and all her recommendations for vendors were the absolute best/you couldn't go wrong with any of them. We were able to put our full trust in her very early on.

    When it came to design, Amber is very creative and has a great eye for everything. We had a very unconventional vision to capture the surreal vibe inspired by a horror movie called Annihilation (very colorful florals that don't exist in real-life and kind of have a weird/creepy vibe about them) and Amber was completely on board. We also added the extra complication of having so many different hanging installations for the florals and the lighting (a big disco ball installation with chandeliers) . She recommended the vendors that she thought would go best with our vision and we really ended up with the ultimate dream team. When finalizing design, I had a couple reservations about some of her color choices, but we ended up going with it and it couldn't have been more perfect. She is truly an expert!

    With the pandemic, she seamlessly handled coordinating with our vendors and was completely there for us even though she had the busiest wedding season of all time this past summer (2 wedding seasons in 1). We are truly grateful for all the work she had put in when her bandwidth was spread as thin as it was. In our final coordination meetings with all our vendors leading up to our wedding day, she really showcased her expertise by asking all the right questions to ensure everyone was prepared to have things running smoothly the day of. Without this, we honestly would have missed so many things and not have been able to enjoy our wedding day ourselves.

    Fast forward to our wedding day, her day of coordination was impeccable. I was relaxed the entire day and knew I could trust her with everything. We fully enjoyed our entire wedding day/night and were able to eat and party without any concerns. With the amount of coordination that was required from the many different vendors and the countless amount of installations that had be installed that day (lighting, SO many floral installations, etc.), it truly was executed perfectly. She was also just the best energy to have around and I cannot think of a single issue that happened.

    I highly recommend Amber as a planner, designer, and/or day-of coordinator for any of your event needs. She is very knowledgeable, organized (a perfectionist!), creative, responsive, and just an overall wonderful person. She goes above and beyond for all her clients and has a great eye for any type of design. Having her be in our lives for the past 3 years has been the best and we are so grateful to have met her and worked with her on our wedding. Our guests have all commented that our wedding is the best they've ever attended and we'll remember every single detail for the rest of our lives.

    12/10 Would Recommend!

    Amber was the best planner we ever could have asked for!

    We utilized Amber for her full service planning option and she was hands down, amazing! Amber was there every step of the way, helping us choose amazing vendors and using her design skills to take what was in my head and make it a reality. Not to mention, she handled my indecisiveness with compassion and ease, which isn't an easy feat having a whole additional year to let my head wander.

    After having to postpone our wedding a year due to COVID, Amber handled every detail of making the postponement as seamless as possible, while also handling double the amount of weddings as typical. She demonstrated absolute expertise and stayed on top of numerous details & custom elements that made our day truly unique to us.

    In all of our vendor meetings, she helped guide the conversation and was clearly an expert when it came to what questions to ask and helped handle necessities vs wants.

    On the day of, she was incomparable, executing everything perfectly. She truly made the wedding of our dreams a reality. It freed us up to have a blast on the best night of our lives. Hiring Amber was the best decision we made for our wedding, and beyond that she is an AWESOME person! I would highly recommend using Amber for any of your wedding needs!
