    My second review for Amore after our second daughter's wedding!

    I wrote a recommendation for Bri and Kara a month ago for my daughter's wedding that took place in Annapolis MD on 10/23/21. Fast forward one month to 11/27/21 when my second daughter got married at Pippin Hill in Charlottesville, VA! Trying to plan two weddings (which were also destination weddings since we are from the Philadelphia area) was extremely challenging and stressful. Well, thanks to the girls from Amore we pulled both off and were thrilled with the results of each one. This is a letter my husband wrote to Bri and Kara the day after this weekend's wedding.

    Bri & Kara,

    "You guys are the best! Thank you both so much for making another great weekend for us. Tara & Mike’s wedding was perfect in every way. We cannot imagine changing one thing. You orchestrated a script that was amazing and exceeded all of our expectation. We are forever grateful.

    And, you gave Karen peace of mind. Without you two, my wife would have lost her mind. You took all the pressure off of her and enabled her to have a wonderful time. For that, I am very appreciative.

    Girls, thank you for all of your advice, direction and coordination. Without you, last night would not have been so great.

    Although I have no more daughters, I hope to engage you for a party in the future. Thank you!!

    Our best,

    Karen & Mike "

    I think this says it all. We are very happy parents. (and tired!) Haha.

    Amazing experience with Bri and Kara from Amore Events

    My wedding was a dream, and I owe so much of that to Bri and Kara from Amore Events. My husband and I hired them for our wedding on 9/18/21, and from the very moment we did we felt their support. They are both such wonderful people, and so easy to get along with. We immediately felt comfortable with them able to tell them exactly what we were feeling. Our wedding was at Mount Ida Farm and Vineyard in Charlottesville, but we live in northern Virginia, so it was crucial to have people we could rely on since it was not so easy for us to go back and forth to Charlottesville. My husband and I were also both the first in our families to get married, so everything was new for all of us, and we felt so lucky that we had Bri and Kara there to help and guide us throughout the whole process. On top of all of that, I am a teacher who had to work long hours through COVID times, so wedding planning was often put on the back-burner. Thanks to Bri and Kara, we were still able to stay on task through it all. We felt secure throughout the entire planning process knowing that they had our backs; even when we were having a few concerns with another vendor, they stepped in to make sure things worked out how we had wanted.
    The wedding day itself was more than I could've ever hoped for, and my husband and I have both said it was the best day of our lives. We both were able to be at ease on the day and really enjoy the moment, knowing that Bri and Kara had everything handled and knew exactly how we wanted the day to go and look like. I can't say enough wonderful things about this company and these two, and would 100% recommend them to anyone who is considering hiring them!

    I cannot recommend Bri and Kara enough

    These two really make planning your wedding so much less stressful. They are both very calm and a nice presence to be around which is exactly what you need when you're feeling nervous and not quite yourself. They were relaxed yet tenacious and completely in control. I really can't explain it! They are magical and know exactly what they're doing. When the day came we did not once have to think about anything. We were able to completely turn off our minds so we could be present. The day would not have been so special without them. Like I said, I cannot recommend them enough.
