Amanda and her team were so helpful in helping us to put together a beautiful backyard wedding in less than a month! She was really flexible and helped put me at ease that everything would come together. With Covid going on she was very helpful in making accommodations for food and drinks to help keep people safe and socially distant. We would not have been able to pull this event together without Amanda. In the end we had a beautiful wedding and I can’t imagine having it any other way. I cannot recommend Amanda enough!Sent on 07/23/2020

Amanda is amazing!
If you are considering hiring Amanda for your wedding or party, you shouldn't hesitate at all!! I worked with Amanda for our engagement party which took place in the Art Factory in Paterson NJ. It is a beautiful and unique space, but definitely requires organization and logistical planning, all of which Amanda was able to handle so well. I was able to explain my vision to Amanda for decor and overall vibe and she was able to work with all the appropriate groups to make it happen. My favorite thing about working with Amanda is her positive attitude when things change. For example, I changed the location of the dinner buffet only a few days before. We also requested "reserved" signs literally hours before the event. Amanda never made me feel like last minute changes were unacceptable and she worked hard to ensure it was what we wanted. Even if it was additional work on her end, she never made me feel like that was the case. I also love how easy she is to communicate with - whether its phone calls, texts, or tags and DMs on instagram - she is very available, always enthusiastic, always so sweet! During the event itself, she handled everything from communicating with vendors to moving guests around - things we never even spoke about. I felt so relieved having Amanda around! I signed her for my wedding as well and I feel lucky to have found AMVWeddings!!!!Sent on 11/11/2019

Amanda seriously makes your dreams come true!
Amanda is an absolute game changer! As a diy bride I thought I had everything locked in but I knew I needed a day of event coordinator so we could enjoy our day instead of working the logistics... Let me tell you I had no idea how much I needed Amanda and her team! We began working together after everything was mostly booked right before covid. Then the virus hit and everything was in the air. Amanda helped keep us grounded and guided us through rescheduling process twice! While I was in an emotional state of tears and breakdowns from almost two years of planning and she handled emailing all of our our vendors to coordinate our new day. That in itself was worth it but she did even more! Her extended assistance the weeks before, checking in with our vendors was a huge help! When it came to our wedding day Amanda and her team flawlessly put together everything we worked so hard on for so long and brought what was just a tent on grass to life! She kept everything moving smoothly and even helped pack everything up that night so it was ready to go the next morning. She truly made all the difference. As a perfectionist myself, her attention to detail and ensuring you have the best day is phenomenal. We were so lucky to have AMV Weddings on our team!Sent on 11/25/2020
