I really don't know what I would have done without Amy. I can genuinely say she is a wedding life saver! I had NO idea how much organization and planning goes into coordination and day of scheduling alone. As the days grew closer to the big day, and panic set in, I found myself unable to manage the final details that I thought would be so simple. I reached out to Amy, and within moments of talking to her I knew I made the right decision. It was smooth sailing from there! I will never forget that initial conversation because it was the first time I felt calm in weeks. Amy's attention to detail is impeccable. I think what makes her extra special is her ability to pick up on the seemingly small details that actually make a huge difference. When planning out the day of timeline she took everyone's special requests into consideration and helped create a flow that only a pro could execute. Amy is incredibly professional- but also extremely fun to be around!! She will make you smile just when you need it most. Having her there that day was amazing. Thank you Amy!Sent on 09/19/2017

Amy Ackerman was absolutely wonderful to work with for our wedding. As our day of wedding coordinator, she went far above and beyond our expectations, both with her initial meeting and lead up to the event, and on the actual day. She is professional, kind, and highly organized...all of the things I most wanted and needed during our wedding.Sent on 09/06/2017
She showed her professionalism by effortlessly managing the dynamics between herself and the venues 'wedding coordinator' ensuring that my vision and desires were met, while avoiding conflict with the venue. In addition, during the actual wedding, she managed to identify several loose ends I hadn't thought of and gently remind me and my family, without further stressing us out.
This leads to the next attribute, kindness. I'm sure there are many highly capable wedding coordinators, but what I think makes Amy stand out is that she is equally kind and patient. This may seem obvious, but I've seen several of my friends wedding planners show their frustration or even snap at the bride during the weekend. Amy never came close...and if she was stressed or frustrated, no one would ever know. She was gracious and calm, which helped keep me that way on anything but a calm day.
Finally, Amy is extremely organized. She went through all of my vendors contracts, created our master timeline, and followed-up on loose ends to ensure no details were forgotten. We're so grateful to have had her assistance during what will surely be one of the most important and happiest days of our life. THANK YOU!

Having Amy Ackerman by our side for our wedding was the best decision we made during the entire process! Not only was her team incredibly professional and willing to help in any way at all, but they were so fun to be around. Our wedding day was a snowy December day, so there was some room for disaster. However, I did not need to worry about any details because I trusted Amy and her team completely.Sent on 09/15/2017
Working with Amy in the months before the wedding was so enjoyable. She is super organized and thinks through each situation with such consideration that is is immediately clear her clients have nothing to worry about. Amy's attention to detail proves she values each bride's unique perspective and wants them to have their perfect day.
I was so comforted while I was having my hair and make up done with my bridesmaids that I did not have to think about anything going wrong. We were able to enjoy the best weekend of our lives because we had the best help surrounding us.
I cannot wait to recommend Amy and her team to my girlfriends in the future!
Amy is great to work with, I would highly recommend her to all of my couples!
