    Pam is AMAZING. Above and beyond

    We could write a novel about why we loved working with Pam. To keep it short, we think it boils down to 3 key things:

    1) even as a Day Of, she supports you through the planning process. Monthly check in helped us stay on track, she helped us find and coordinate with a few of our most critical vendors, and she was plugged into the vibe of our event from day 1

    2) She’s a great hyper woman. The planning process is exhausting and there are definitely lows. Pam was ALWAYS reassuring, chipper, enthusiastic. She brought good energy to the table

    3) on the big day, she was an unobtrusive organizational mastermind. She has great intuition for what decisions you want to be asked about vs the ones you want her to make. She was never “in the way” and really made sure everything moved at the pace we wanted it to.

    We can’t recommend Pam enough. Hiring her was one of our best decisions.

The wedding celebration planned by Pam was one of the most beautifully coordinated events we've played music for! Held on an orchard, special touches included red accents (inc. bridesmaids' gowns) echoing the ripe apples on the trees. Pam had TWO coordinators overseeing everything, including the ceremony's processionals, which proceeded in perfect timing.

Gary S. Jones Entertainment Gary S. Jones Entertainment Wedding DJs

I have done many weddings with Pam over the years and she truly knows what she's doing. She works with the other vendors rather than telling the other vendors what to do and ensures everything goes according to plan. You simply cannot go wrong with Pam at your wedding!

Jayson's Photography Jayson's Photography Wedding Photographers

The best in the business. I had the pleasure of working with Pam at a backyard wedding in Amherst, Ma. Her expertise and attention to detail is top notch. I recommend her to anyone getting married as she knows what looks great and will give you outstanding quality service. She is very easy to work alongside and will make your vision for your day come to life. Hire her for your event and wedding as you will not be disappointed in her above and beyond approach.
