    Thank you so much!

    If there is anyone who made our wedding worth while it would be Sandra and her wonderful assistant Sharon. From start to finish she did everything to make our day as special as it could of been. Not to mention that 1 month before our wedding we were screwed out of our coordinator who was Unprofessional enough not to remember she was handling our wedding. But Sandra found out and immediately offered her services to us right away. And with such short notice I couldn’t believe how much she did for us. She kept great communication on timelines. Especially the rehearsal for the day before she went out of her way and drove almost two hours to us just to make sure our rehearsal was perfect. My wife and I would 100% recommend her to anyone looking for their day of coordinator. Thank you so much to Sandra and Sharon for all you did for us that day. You two ladies are absolutely amazing and couldn’t have thanked you more. I hope to hear of more wonderful days you can become apart of !

    HVC Ceremonies - Amanda O'Leary

    I just wanted to take a moment and leave a stellar review for HVC Ceremonies, and in particular, our amazing planner Amanda O'Leary. We started planning in late 2020 for our wedding in 2021 nervous about the unknowns of the coming year. Amanda consistently kept updated us on covid policies, how many people we were allowed to have, etc. We were so so so excited our wedding in late Oct 2021 was coming up. Amanda had every detail completed and perfect. Unfortunately, we had to change our date VERY last minute (like the Monday the week of our Friday wedding) due to covid. Amanda went above and beyond to help us find a new date, take care of every single vendor, and support both me and my husband when we were so upset we needed to change our date. We finally got our PERFECT day in early April 2022, 100% thanks to Amanda. She took care of everything and made sure both me and my husband had the most perfect day. Our guests had the very best time and I felt at ease knowing Amanda had our backs. I cannot say enough good things about her. We are forever grateful for ALL of her hard work and dedication to her job, but also grateful for her friendship and support when we really need it. We love Amanda and would recommend her to anyone a thousand times over!
