    Day of Coordinator- SHES AMAZING!

    I was a “covid bride” so I had a long journey with Amanda in 2020 and into 2021 where the big day finally happened! Amanda was AMAZING throughout it all! She is extremely professional, talented, and very knowledgeable of wedding planning and making sure things go smooth and perfect for your big day! If you are looking for a wedding coordinator, seriously look no further, A Swanky Affair is THE ONE! You won’t regret it!

    She’s the Best!!!

    Amanda Scott, owner of A Swanky Affair, was a huge help as we navigated the challenges of hosting our daughter’s wedding at a very large and very busy venue. We especially appreciated her timely and efficient communication skills. While dealing with some other vendors who did not respond at all (or took days/weeks to respond) to our questions and concerns during the planning process, it was a pleasure to always receive her responses either immediately, or within 24 hours. This was very, very important to us. Amanda was efficient, knowledgeable, and extremely organized, with a focus on detail. And very important: she was calming and reassuring during those moments when panic would arise, which inevitably occur during the planning of a wedding. Amanda was on point thru all the Zoom calls, phone calls, text messages, emails and venue planning sessions we scheduled throughout our year of planning. We were blessed to have her as our wedding coordinator and appreciate all she did to help our daughter realize the wedding of her dreams. Thank you, thank you, Amanda!!!

    Amanda Was Fabulous!

    Amanda was fantastic and I would absolutely recommend her to every one of my friends. She is well-organized, highly communicative, very knowledgeable of the local wedding industry (and industry at large) and went above and beyond for our wedding day. She did everything in her job description and more to help us navigate all of the ups and downs and twists and turns with COVID (we had an October 2021 date). We couldn’t have had the wedding day we did without her. Thanks Amanda for everything!!

Amanda is so delightful to work with! We have now done several weddings together and they have been beautiful and flowed smoothly along because of her careful planning and foresight so nothing slips by her and gets forgotten. I can highly recommend A Swanky Affair!

I would highly recommend Amanda from A Swanky Affair. Her designs are gorgeous and she is professional and organized, making the day run smoothly from beginning to end. I'm always excited to hear I am working with her on a wedding because I know it's going to be a gorgeous day. You will definitely be in good hands.
