Brought our fairytale wedding to life - against all odds!

My husband and I got married in New York on May 15th, 2022, just 6 months after we got engaged, which is not a lot of time to plan a wedding. To make things even more difficult, we both live in Europe. After three days of losing my mind in an attempt to plan the event myself, we both realised we needed a wedding planner.
We searched high and low, and interviewed so many I lost count - but when we met Louis and Nora, we just knew we had found our perfect match. Aside from the fact that they're both really lovely people. their international experience made things so much easier for us: they helped us navigate American wedding norms and rituals that we weren't accustomed to, and understood our European tastes and styles so well.. in fact, we couldn't find any venue that suited our style on our own, but once we met Louis, he just knew: he found us the perfect venue on the first try. It was the venue of both of our dreams, and without Louis we wouldn't have even known about it, let alone had access to it!
Speaking of their network, every vendor and partner they work with is the best in the business, hands down, and we were lucky to have had their services because no one could have done better. People are still talking about our florals, venue and entertainment over a year after the event! The only vendor we had less than ecstatic feelings about was the one vendor that we chose on our own rather than follow their suggestion... goes to show, Louis and Nora are always right!
This was not an easy wedding to manage: family drama, a MOH who ghosted us mid-planning, a best man who did the same just 2 weeks before the wedding, bridal gown problems less than a week beforehand, and so many other unexpected challenges and issues... but Louis and Nora handled it all in stride without breaking a sweat - actually making it look easy to put together such a stunning event that went ahead beautifully! Throughout it all, it was well planned, with timelines, spreadsheets and all (which really comforted the consultant in me!), and we felt their warmth and kindness supporting us along the way, acting as a huge support for not only us but my family too.
It was a more wonderful, beautiful wedding than I could have dreamed of, and I know only Louis and Nora could have pulled off an event like this. We are so grateful, and will lean on them again without hesitation to celebrate the next big important life milestones to come.

Helped make our wedding dreams come true!

AMG events made our wedding process absolutely amazing!! Louis and his team truly took care of my husband and I since the start. From planning every detail together to making sure everything ran smoothly the day of, I was continuously impressed and eternally grateful. Their expertise, attention to detail and coordination allowed us to be at ease during this process so we can focus on the special moments of our wedding. Our wedding was the most special, perfect and fun day, and would not have been what it was if not for AMG. I recommend them 100% to anyone planning a wedding or event!! 鉂わ笍鉂わ笍
