Ambiance is not a package A or package B affair.

Each event has its own journey and destination, and my job is to help get you there with a little less worry and a lot more style.

One and Only’s are my jam!

Looking for your big day to stand our from the rest? Want your guests to experience a new way to wedding? I’m a boutique wedding designer that does one and only’s. Your wedding won’t look or feel like any other. Let me create a dream day or weekend for you and your guests.

“Month Of” Wedding Specialist

“Day Of” planner is a fallacy. To pull off your picture perfect day, we need a full month to pull it all together. Hire me to handle all the details, little to big, so you can absorb the joy of this day. This option is for the bride who has started the planning process but is ready to relax and enjoy the last few months before the big day – stress-free. Let me manage the important details. From finalizing and managing vendors, last-minute coffee shop runs and lighting the candles, you’ll toast and dance the night away with no worries. I’ll step in, and we will finish this amazing journey together!

Big Idea Girl

Looking for a BIG idea? Something innovative for your guests? Did you know that experiences are more impactful for attendees than picking the right centerpiece? Let me bring something splashy and fun to your next personal or social event. From vendor selections to the WOW factor, I have it covered. We will work closely from the beginning to create the event of your dreams. All you have to do is give me the inspiration, and I’ll make it happen from there. Connect your vision to a memorable experience.

Want to see if we are a “match”?

Our first personal meeting will be a complimentary one hour information gathering session to see if I can be of assistance
to you on your big day. After that, we will come up with a game plan to set your event in motion.

Let’s chat and get to know each other!

Absolutely amazing! She was attentive and made my planning so smooth.

April was extremely helpful in my wedding planning process and made the day of my wedding a breeze. I didn't have to worry about anything and handed everything over to her and her assistant, Elizabeth. Definitely recommend!

Worth every penny!

April did such an incredible job making sure that everything went smoothly. She made me aware of options I didn’t even know I had, but was so grateful for. She was quick to respond even during evening hours. She handled so much of the stressful responsibilities and was so flexible! My husband and I decided we wanted to leave the wedding about 30 minutes earlier than we had planned, and April made sure that it all went perfectly! She added such a special touch with her attention to detail, and she suggested a phenomenal caterer! Truly my wedding was beyond anything I could have imagined.

Ambiance has been my dream since I left for culinary school in 1995. A love for food, spirits, events and a good time fueled the passion to create Ambiance.

After 20 years in this industry, I have seen and done it all. This wide scope of experience brings a global look to each event I am fortunate enough to plan. I have worked years to gather new and unique vendors, cultivated relationships locally and nationally, and a constant consumer of inspiration. I love to dream big and deliver specialized events. And cookie cutter is not in my vocabulary.

No matter the scale, being invited to be a part of someone’s special day is the ultimate compliment and reward.

Let’s innovate and inspire together.
