Amazing wedding planner!
Amanda is amazing. She helped us put together a wedding in 4 weeks. She went above and beyond. The outcome was spectacular and the best part was she took care of everything. She picked up on who we were and our style immediately. She had everything planned in days. She was a soundboard when we could not make decisions. The day of the wedding she managed everything including making sure our family and friends were in the right place at the right time. We will be calling Amanda for our next event.Sent on 07/29/2020

Amazing Wedding Coordination Team - Cannot Recommend them Enough!
Amanda and her team are amazing!!!!! I reached out to Amanda about three weeks before my re-planned Covid wedding in August, and almost instantly she made me feel heard and peaceful! She jumped right in to finalize last minute vendors, create our wedding timeline and find us an amazing day of coordinator, Shannon!
We met for tacos and right away, I could tell how excited and professional she was and that carried us through to our exit off of our wedding boat! Amanda was there on Friday to go through our rehearsal, there the morning of my wedding to drop off champagne and help with last minute wedding tasks, and was there at the end of the night to support Shannon! Shannon was our day of coordinator, and she was absolutely amazing! She handled everything we threw at her with calmness and grace! She even bustled my dress when my mom and sister were no where to be found! She there for me when I was feeling seasick and was there to bring my husband and I cake at the end of the night when we realized we didn't eat any.
Amanda even sent over cookies to our home when she realized we didn't get to eat any on the boat!
Amanda and her team are amazing, and if you need a rockstar team to support you and make you feel less crazy, hire them!! I cannot thank them enough for supporting us through a crazy planning time crunch and an amazing wedding day!! Thank you!!Sent on 08/31/2020

Amanda was so compassionate! -Anonymous LGBTQ Bride
"I am a queer woman of color, and unfortunately, my family does not even know that I got married. Amanda helped my partner and I keep our event private and confidential. She was always willing to listen to the unique nuances of our queer relationship. We seriously would not have been able to pull off such a sacred, beautiful, and fun wedding without her and Shannon's help. She is a fearless wedding planner who is highly organized and demonstrates exquisite attention-to-detail. More importantly, she is compassionate, thoughtful, and willing to go the extra mile for you. This meant a lot to me, especially in an industry that is still very heterosexist and homophobic. My hope is that other LGBTQ partners wishing to get married are able to use Amanda and her team to help make their special day flow much easier. My partner and I are forever grateful to her."Sent on 11/05/2020
