Hire Hidden Host!!
Amanda was the first event coordinator I spoke with and I remember at the end of our first phone conversation saying to her "I mean... I don't really need to think about this at all, I feel like we're really going to get along really well and I like you already so can I just say okay now and we'll get the contract going?". Trust your gut, she is incredible. I will be saying thank you to Amanda for years to come. Not only is she an amazing person, fun to be around and genuinely positive, she knows what she is doing when it comes to wedding planning. I asked for her advice and opinion often and trusted her with everything. She has this amazing app she developed that kept me so organized I was impressed by myself and need it for my life. You hear horror stories about seating charts, I had a blast using her app to create our seating chart. She was on top of EVERYTHING. The timeline she creates for your wedding day is so impressive there is no room for anything to go wrong and nothing did, the day was absolutely perfect. She was there for the rehearsal and many of our wedding party took the time to say "Wow, she's got this covered", yep... listen to Amanda and all will be fine. Same with the wedding day, many people mentioned how amazing she was for various reasons, her hard work did not go unnoticed by us or our family and friends. Amanda was SO attentive day of, making sure we had anything and everything we needed and even bustling my dress many times! I felt so confident passing off all of our decor and trusted her to make many day of decisions on how things looked, she knew what I was going for and she nailed it. Having a team like Amanda's that you trust to ensure your day is perfect takes so much of the stress away, I was truly able to enjoy every second of our wedding day and weekend. I felt confident in the team we had and they proved me right. The entire process would not have been as much fun for me without Amanda as part of it. I highly suggest you book Hidden Host Events for your wedding!

Above and beyond!!
We worked with Hidden Host for day of coordination, and they were fantastic! She helped me stay organized throughout the planning process, and then it was such a relief to hand it all over to her leading up to the wedding day. She provided us and all of our vendors with a detailed itinerary and made sure everything went smoothly for the rehearsal and wedding day. I made some of the decor myself and borrowed some items from Hidden Host, and they brought it all together in such a beautiful way- it was so nice to not have to worry about setting things up on the morning of the wedding. Without Amanda’s organization and ability to run the show from behind the scenes, we would have not been able to enjoy our wedding. We are forever grateful for Hidden Host Events- they truly went above and beyond to make our day special!

AMAZING Experience with Hidden Host Events
Hello! I have been wanting to get to this review for a couple of months now, my wedding was on 10/6/18 and our day turned out to be perfect-and I attribute that to Hidden Host Events and Amanda Barker. From the very beginning, Amanda helped us to get organized, find the best vendors, and keep on track with all of our ‘To-Do’s’. She went well above and beyond just helping me with the ‘day of’ coordination. She helped us to remember all of the smaller details that would probably have been forgotten along the way. She has incredible connections with other vendors, venues, etc and is an absolute professional at what she does. She even made sure to get a birthday cake for a friend from out of town for my rehearsal dinner! She is committed to making sure that your wedding day is everything you want and more. We truly could not have asked for a more perfect day! In addition to Amanda being incredibly talented at what she does, she is also a wonderful person! If you want your wedding day to be a dream, then I would highly recommend gettting in touch with Hidden Host Events and Amanda, we are so grateful we did! Thank you so much Amanda!
Amanda is wonderful at as planner. Highly recommend!
