The Best Planner and Best friend rolled into one
I would never even begin to be able to make you understand what an amazing not just planner Amanda is, but what an amazing person she is. She 100% loves what she does and has no agenda but to make our wildest dreams come true. I found Amanda while searching for a planner on wedding wire. Hiring her was THE BEST DECISION I MADE DURING MY WHOLE PLANNING PROCESS. at the time I hired Amanda she was in the middle of traveling the world studying weddings around the globe. She insured me she would be available to me at any time and it would not hinder her performance. I was not worried and thought it was so spectacular and would add to her advantage of being one of the best out there. Over a year of emails and texts back and forth, ideas and feelings, well wishes and inspirations it created a relationship I would have never expected. I knew Amanda was willing to do anything and everything to make it the best day possible for me, my husband, and family. The day soon came and there was no worry in the world. She even gave each individual person of the wedding party their own itinerary!!!! There was never one moment I didn’t feel secure or was unsure of anything because I knew she had it completely taken care of. I really wonder how other weddings go on without someone like Amanda. I mean I guess they do but not as magical and smooth. I wish I could hire her a million more times to make my dreams come true. My wedding day was the ABSOLUTE BEST DAY OF MY LIFE. My husband and I will forever be in love with our day and how it all went down. It was truly magical. Amanda is forever now part of our perfect journey and I would do it 100 more times . We will never be able to thank you enough. Give yourself the best wedding gift you can and Hire AMV weddings.Sent on 09/29/2019

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
