Amy was the best teammate a bride and groom could ask for!
We hit the wall interviewing too many wedding planners and felt a huge weight fall off our shoulders when we met Amy. After just one phone call, we knew that we wanted her on our team! Her communication style was so easy-going and she was always right on top of everything--she would mention an update and before we knew it, we had an email with details in our inbox. Our wedding was in Valle de Guadalupe, at a facility that had hosted only a handful of weddings prior to ours, so we had our work cut out for us in carving out an event path with them. Amy was a very flexible partner in meeting us down in the region several times for walk-thrus and face-to-face meetings. She helped iron out wrinkles and was very resourceful in making our dreams come true. We would send her pictures of things we wanted, like shot glasses to gift our guests, and within a few pushes of a button she found them for us. On the day of, Amy and her team were swiftly organizing everything behind the scenes with smiles on their faces, making us and all of our guests feel supremely cared for. They set everything up to a tee, with meticulous attention to detail, moved the day along right on schedule, and even met us with a plate of appetizers to scarf down before we walked into our reception. So many of our friends came up to us afterwards to say that our wedding planner did such a wonderful job! We are so pleased to have met and worked with Amy. She executed our wedding exactly as we had envisioned, and has given us the fond memories of the day to last a lifetime.Sent on 10/23/2019

They are like having a gal pal help make your wedding go beautifully
I am so thankful for having Allie (and First Comes Love) as our day of coordinator. First Comes Love, sent email reminders to help keep me on track with planning and Amy was there to answer any and all quesitons I had. Amy was amazing going over the timeline with my, over the phone, making all the changes I asked for and giving me great advice on things i wasnt sure about. Allie was beyond wonderful, from the rehearsal to every detail of the wedding day, we could not have had a better day of coordinator and team supporting us through the planning process.Sent on 10/23/2019
As Allie led us through the rehearsal you had no doubt of her confidence and knowledge. Everyone warned me that rehearsal always run long. They should have had Allie. Even with a few changes here and there we were done, and everyone felt good about the whole ceremony, in about 30 minutes. She didn't flinch when I told her about my decor power-point, and she set up all my decor even better than I could have imagined. Everything was beautiful. I can honestly say I did not have a single worry or stress the entire day because I knew I could turn to Allie.
She was there when my now husband's black shoe polish rubbed off on to my dress before the ceremony
She was there to catch a beetle in her hands in the middle of the ceremony!
She was there to congratulate us at the end of the ceremony
She even found a few minutes for us to have a moment alone before the grand entrance to enjoy the Tom Ham's view as a newly married couple.
Not only was she a fantastic coordinator, she was so fun! I would plan another wedding just to work with her again.
I would have no hesitation to recommend Allie, and First Comes Love, to any brides I know.

Best choice we made, second to getting married!
Amy with First Comes Love went above and beyond anything we could have hoped for! We got married in Valle de Guadalupe in Mexico and they made the international communication smooth and effortless for us. All anyone wants in the wedding process is; low stress, easy, constant communication, and for everything to go as planned. With First Comes Love, this is exactly what you'll get. Amy has tons of experience, and it truly shows. Amy was always available for us to call with a question and never made us feel as though we were an inconvenience. She paid attention to every little detail and made us feel like we were her first priority. We had an amazing wedding and without Amy, it wouldn't have come together as well as it did. WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND HER!Sent on 08/18/2019
