We can not recommend Amanda highly enough. As wedding planning can go in the era of a pandemic, there can be some hiccups - some larger than others. Throughout them all - Amanda was so incredibly helpful in navigating them.Sent on 07/07/2021
Our vendors would regularly tell us things such as “your wedding planner has been in contact - you’re in good hands”. Throughout the entire planning phase, she was quietly in constant communication with all vendors, which became obvious on the day of the wedding.
We had a few things we forgot to bring to the hotel to the hotel we stayed at for our wedding, and she came by early in the morning to drop off anything we needed. She helped guide us through nuances, etiquette, and procedural complexities that come with planning a wedding.
On the day of, Amanda was our clock. She had a detailed timeline made - one she did her best to abide by, and encouraged our vendors to do the same. One thing that really impressed us was her demeanor and professionalism throughout the wedding day. If there was a sense of urgency to meet a time deadline, it was *never* expressed in distress to either us or our guests - only to the appropriate people with the appropriate urgency needed to hit our goal.
Importantly, Amanda is just a kind and friendly presence. She was just a pleasure to have around both to us and our family. She only added to the positive vibes on a day filled with love and excitement.
Overall - Amanda is regimented, adaptable, calm, persistent, and a genuinely great person - who happens to be a hell of an event planner. We’re excited to give her our highest recommendation, and are truly grateful to her for giving us the mental freedom to sincerely take in and appreciate the day.

Amanda is great
Friends referred Amanda to us and we are in debt to them for it. Our wedding had gone through multiple plans due to Covid and this summer we finally were able to do it and Amanda was able to pull it all together quickly and create a seamless event that was a truly memorable. In short order Amanda handled communication with a variety of vendors (floral, photography, DJ) we had contracted with and set us up with additional vendors we had not (transportation, dessert, dog assistance for pictures and night of). She also helped make all the right calls about what was needed for the ceremony. We had total confidence in Amanda which made the day enjoyable. We highly, highly recommend her!Sent on 07/12/2021

Run dont walk and hire amanda
If you are looking for an event planner - stop and book Amanda right this second. There aren't enough words to describe how AMAZING Amanda is - I'm not kidding my wedding would not have happened without her patience, killer ideas, and planning skills. She truly brings her heart and soul to every meeting, call, text, and of course the wedding weekend. She single handedly helped me replan our wedding in a different state within two months and didn't even bat an eye. The moment I told her we were moving the wedding location, she had five venues ready for us to see the next day. Who does that??? She went above and beyond her job responsibilities to make our day perfect and I can't imagine using anyone else. I want to get married over and over to have her help, but know I gained an incredible friend in the process. Thank you again, Amanda!!!Sent on 07/08/2021
