Amy and team were awesome! I did 'month-of' package and it was so nice. If you haven't done a bunch of weddings in your life, I recommend 'month of'. She will finalize all details with your vendors and even call them multiple times if they are un-responsive and get them to confirm details with her and you. She organized our whole day-of timeline and made us feel comfortable and not-stressed about all event logistics day of. I don't know what I would have done without her, probably be running around worrying about everything. I felt comfortable letting her run the show and just enjoyed my day!Sent on 03/18/2019

The best money spent on the wedding, hands down.
First Comes Love (for us, that meant Amy and Ally) was easily the best and most important expense of the wedding. I will tell everyone I know who's doing a wedding to NOT MISS THIS CHANCE!!Sent on 01/12/2019
Planning the wedding was fun to do but let's be honest, a month out you're just trying to stay cool, look good, and relax so you can have the best day of your life!!! I was completely able to do that with FCL. I got married at the Prado in Balboa Park, and these ladies are all friends with everyone there and seem to know everyone in the business! Every time I was worried about something, they told me they had it under control. I had nothing to worry about on the day of and enjoyed my wedding the way it was meant to be experienced - relaxed and feeling awesome!!!
Thank you Amy and Ally and the rest of the team for helping couples everywhere execute the wedding of their dreams!!!!

We hired First Comes Love for our wedding in November of 2018 and cannot recommend Amy and her team enough! We had the pleasure of working with Amy for 10 months and she was so amazing we still keep in touch! First Comes Love’s “Full Planning” package was exceptional and affordable. FCL made all our dreams come true within our budget! Amy provided us with amazing options for vendors and walked us through the whole process. She got my vision for the wedding and executed it amazingly. The planning process with FCL was fun and enjoyable from the very first meeting through the wedding and even beyond. She was able to guide our 20 person wedding party with ease and made sure everyone had everything they needed. Everything was flawless and magical. Just the way a wedding day should feel!Sent on 02/10/2019
