First and foremost, if you are thinking of hiring a planner, hire Amanda immediately. We hired Amanda part way into our planning process (already hired most of our vendors & venue) and it truly was the BEST decision we made for our wedding. I am very organized and often called type A and I was already starting to feel stressed. I felt like I was going to miss big things leading up to our day (details, payments etc.) and we just had so many questions about different aspects of our wedding and she came right in and immediately put us at ease. She was on top of every single detail from start to finish. We made adjustments along the way and she guided us through every step, got quotes on additional vendors and made it possible for us to make decisions without doing all the leg work, which is critical when you both have crazy schedules! When the week of our wedding came, I was so calm and the days leading up to the wedding I had about six different vendors tell me I was a very relaxed/calm/chill bride and that really was 100% because of Amanda. I knew she had everything under control and I did not have to worry. We ultimately did have a few hiccups morning of and by the time I found out about them, she had it taken care of, it was amazing! Multiple of our guests said our wedding day was the smoothest and best flowing wedding they have ever been to and I couldn’t agree more. As you can tell, we really cannot say enough good things about Amanda and her team, she was an absolute rock star for us.Sent on 10/24/2019

Hidden Host Events the absolute best!
I was blessed to have found Amanda and her team. I was planning the wedding long distance and Amanda handled everything! Her attention to detail was amazing from start to finish. We didn’t have to worry about anything. I am thankful for her patience, vision, creativity, and grace. There wasn’t a question of ours that went unanswered and always with warmth and understanding. We had a perfect wedding weekend. Not only was Amanda my saving grace but became a friend. I would highly recommend Amanda and Hidden Host Events to everyone. I cannot thank them enough for keeping me sane and I hope to have the opportunity to work with Amanda again! She is the best!Sent on 04/27/2020
