Hi! I'm Amanda Holder, owner of Amanda Holder Events. I spent almost 15 years as a corporate event planner for organizations such as the PGA TOUR, IMG Worldwide, NBC television, CBS television and REC Solar. The first wedding I ever planned was for live television at five o'clock in the morning. And, I've been hooked ever since.
After years of planning weddings, baby showers, fundraisers and everything in-between, in addition to my full-time corporate event planning career, I finally launched my own full-time business. In 2014, three of my industry friends and I founded The Wedding Space in San Luis Obispo, CA, a collaborative workspace for wedding professionals. In 2016, five fellow wedding planners and I founded SLO Wedding Planners, a cooperative networking group, designed to help raise the standard of service in the industry. We are members of Central Coast Wedding Professionals, SLO Wedding Vendors, The Wedding Standard, and are active in various other industry organizations. We were recently honored with the award for Best Wedding Planner in San Luis Obispo County by the folks at California Wedding Day!!!
We absolutely LOVE what we do!

If you want a wedding day without a care in the world then Amanda Holder Events is the ONLY option. She and her team think of and cover every detail from start to finish. Every one of our vendors repeatedly told us we had the A team with Amanda and I couldn't agree more. Thank you Amanda & Julia for caring as much about my wedding day as I did. You are loved by all and now I understand why. XOXOSent on 10/11/2018

Amazing wedding, perfect experience!
I am not sure that I have the words to be able to express my thanks and gratitude towards Amanda and everything that she and her team has done to create and execute my dream wedding experience. Working alongside Amanda was the best decision I could have ever made (aside from saying “yes” to the wedding proposal!). Prior to wedding planning, I was a ball of nerves and stress and I had no vision for the wedding whatsoever. Amanda’s full service coordination package was exactly what I needed. From Day 1, she was calm, professional, and easy to talk to and connect with. She helped build a wedding that matched the personalities and wants of my husband and I, with very little help from the two of us (neither my husband nor I are particularly creative or artsy…). She knew all of the vendors in the area and clearly had established positive, strong relationships with each of the folks that worked the event. The wedding day itself ran so smoothly. She remembered every little detail and helped everything go exactly as planned. Everyone that she recommended and subsequently hired as vendors - from caterers, DJ, flowers - they were perfect. My father thanked her in his speech as even he realized how much of the wedding success was due to her and her team! I can honestly say that there is nothing that was missed and nothing that I would have changed about the wedding and it was Amanda that made it all possible. The services that she provides are top-notch, VIP status work. Anyone that has the opportunity to work with her should feel incredibly blessed and lucky that they are working with the best event planner, period.Sent on 10/16/2018

Working with Amanda Holder Events was nothing less that phenomenal! Amanda and her team are super efficient, well organized and caring of the other vendors around them. I fully endorse Amanda Holder Events!!!
Amanda is a true gem in our industry. From her professional polished approach to event management, to her warm, supportive and fun energy, we are always excited to work with Amanda and her team. We know when we refer a client to Amanda Holder, they are in great hands!
Amanda is such a breathe of fresh air! As soon as my team arrives, Amanda promptly provides us with everything we need to know and she continues to be a source of support throughout the night. Leading up to the event, Amanda provides very clear and concise information for every vendor allowing for no surprises upon arrival. She truly understands what it takes to run a successful event and gets ahead of any possible issue before they even have a chance to become problematic. I would happily work with her every weekend if I could!!
