Kara & Bri are the absolute best!`

Because we were not Charlottesville locals, we knew that we would benefit from having a planner as a part of our team. We had an absolutely seamless experience with Kara & Bri as a part of Amore. They handled every detail from start to finish with ease, understood my vision, and always provided incredible vendors to select from early in the process so that we always had our date available. When a small issue arose on wedding day with the table linens not shipping (due to the fault of the linens company, not Amore!), they handled the entire situation with grace, never worrying the bride and groom and handling the problem in such a way that all the replacements still fit the vision.
Despite some challenging family circumstances on our big day, Kara & Bri were able to navigate everything with ease and support us despite various challenges. When the father of the bride was finicky about contracts with vendors, Kara & Bri always did the absolute best job either putting his mind at ease, or helping him negotiate with vendors to make sure everyone was satisfied with the end result. We couldn't have done it without them, and by far the best choice we made for planning our weekend was working with Amore. Can't recommend them highly enough!

Wonderful wedding planners and people

We are so thankful that Kara and Bri planned our wedding. They helped to create the wedding of our dreams and made it so much fun along the way. They created a perfect aesthetic and style for the day (we didn't start the process with strong feelings on any of that kind of stuff, so we really needed guidance there). They also prevented us from feeling stressed about vendors or any aspect of the planning process. And when the big day got closer and we had to rearrange some things, they were great and quickly handled the changes. We had a lot of moving pieces to our wedding--we had the ceremony at a church in downtown Charlottesville and the reception at Veritas--and Kara and Bri made sure it all went smoothly. We cannot imagine having done it without them. Plus, they are both so much fun and such genuinely kind people, which is so important when you are embarking on a yearlong wedding planning process. We would recommend them to anyone.
