We talked with a few other wedding planners before meeting Amber, and, much like our first date, we knew pretty immediately and unequivocally that she was the one. There is no way we can truly express how helpful, meticulous, thorough, and thoughtful she was throughout the entire planning process. There were also so many little details that we would have completely overlooked had it not been for Amber. She has immense knowledge, experience, and expertise, and also has connections to some of the very best vendors around. She helped us assemble a team of people who were not only incredibly competent and skilled at their respective trades, but who, like Amber, are genuinely kind-hearted, wonderful people. Amber has a true talent for what she does, and she does it with so much kindness, grace, and professionalism. She listened attentively to our very loose wedding vision, and turned it into the most beautiful celebration we’d ever seen. We’d begun the search for a venue before we met Amber, with no luck, and one of the first recommendations Amber had—Fireseed Catering—ended up being the venue of our dreams! We got endless compliments from family and friends about the beauty of our day, and attribute so many of those sentiments to the way Amber helped our vision come together, and the care she took to ensure we didn’t have to think about anything other than each other on that day.
Since we have a lot more good things to say about Amber--so many that we managed to exceed the character limit--please click the link to our Yelp review below to see the rest of our review!

Flawlessly brought our wedding vision to life!
Amber was our rock throughout our wedding planning process. We worked with her for about the 6 months leading up to our wedding -- she helped to bring to life the design vision we had for our wedding, and then executed that vision flawlessly. Amber's knowledge of the Seattle-area wedding industry is extensive, and she helped pinpoint picture-perfect vendors for us, from florals to cake. On the day-of the wedding she was calm and collected, and allowed us to really be hands-off and truly enjoy the best day ever!
Amber expertly navigated the dynamics of varying opinions, vendor contracts, unforeseen obstacles, and the stresses that come along with planning a wedding, and kept my husband and I as sane as possible throughout the process.
We can't recommend Amber enough for couples who want a reliable, well-organized, and extremely talented planner to work with -- and we are happy to call her a friend!

A Little Bit of Magic
Amber was the best decision we made for our wedding! She was the ultimate professional and did everything in her power to make us believe that my fiancé and I were the only people in the world that mattered. We wholeheartedly recommend Amber to anyone who wants to enjoy their wedding stress free.
We decided to get married in Seattle. As this is not where we live, we needed someone who could help us speak with vendors on our behalf, take our ideas and vision to heart, and turn our wedding into a reality without us physically being with them. Amber was all of this and more. Amber’s knack for design, attention to minute details and organizational ability make mundane things magical in execution. She has a poise, demeanor, and attention to detail that makes you feel as though everything is in hand when she is around.
We provided her with a color theme but Amber’s design savvy eclipsed our expectations and propelled our look into a more elevated design. She helped us fine tune the look by providing suggestions and sample photos of everything from chairs, flowers, lighting, table designs and cakes. Thanks to Amber our wedding turned out more beautiful than we could ever have imagined.
Amber was also very attuned to our budget. As she was our intermediary for vendors, Amber helped us stay within our allotted budget by providing a varied list of professionals that fit our needs and style. (Some she’s worked with and others she has not.) Amber’s professional standing is of a sterling quality among several of the top venues and vendors in Seattle. Even the places she had not worked with knew of her work and were eager to work with her. We were told numerous times by vendors, “Amber works magic. You’ve chosen a good one.”
The day of the wedding, Amber was in her element. She arrived on time and was composed. She effortlessly took charge and coordinated with the vendors and venue director to get everything in order. Staff at our venue/ hotel remarked continually on how well organized everything was and how relaxed my bride and I appeared. Our families loved her as well and appreciated the direction she gave them so that they too could relax and enjoy the event.
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.
