Our wedding weekend savior!
It was sixty days before our wedding, and we knew we were in over our head. We were planning a do-it-yourself camp style wedding for 180 people and we were beginning to crack. Amanda saved our wedding by taking us on as a client with only two months until the big day. She immediately filled in our big gaps and got us focused. The wedding turned out to be everything we could have hoped for (and more).Sent on 06/22/2019

Amazing, amazing, amazing
Amanda was literally the best decision I made during the wedding process. She was beyond helpful! She had an answer for everything and solution to each proble. My family members and bridal party kept saying how grateful they were to have her there. I don't know how people have weddings without a planner.Sent on 06/11/2019

I always figured planning a celebratory event would be stressful and difficult but with Amanda’s help I was able to plan an Amazing enegament celebration for my fiancé. She sent me a bunch of venues that I could book based on my budget and was able to help me pick the best ultimate choice. She’s is very experienced and knowledgeable and is the best at what she does. The food, music, vibe, everything was coordinated and planned to perfection. I never even had to go check out the place. The first time I saw it was the actual event. I recommend Amanda to anybody who needs help plan/coordinate an event.Sent on 02/16/2019
