Just the best
I had the pleasure of having Amanda as the planner and day-of coordinator for my wedding this past Saturday. With Amanda’s help, my wedding day was everything that I envisioned and more!Sent on 08/26/2019
A few months ago, my mom and I found ourselves overwhelmed by the wedding planning process. We had picked most of our vendors and mailed out invitations, but we couldn’t figure out how to piece it all together, and manage the individual vendors. Luckily, Amanda stepped in and saved day.
From the first conversation that I had with Amanda, I knew that my wedding was in good hands. Not only did Amanda have an extremely positive attitude, but she also showed a genuine interest in getting to know us as a couple. By getting to know us, Amanda was then able to make suggestions regarding the final touches of our wedding (e.g., the design of the dinner menus) that completely aligned with our style and taste. Amanda also made several amazing judgment calls on our wedding day (e.g., removing the strobe lighting from our photo booth setup), which further reflected how well she knew us as a couple.
One of the most valuable things that Amanda did for us leading up to the wedding was setting up a timeline for the wedding day. This timeline was amazing! Amanda communicated with all of our vendors - the band, the florist, the photographer, the venue, the hotel, the transportation company, the photo booth company, the seamstress, the hair stylist, the make up artist, the officiant, as well as the individuals responsible for the cookies and cake. On the wedding day, the whole operation was like a well-oiled machine! Amanda even helped us figure out a way to incorporate 10 speeches into our dinner program (while still making sure there would be time for plenty of dancing).
I could go on and on about Amanda, but I’m hoping you get the bottom point by now - she is the real deal! With tremendous confidence, and without reservation, I would recommend Amanda to any bride.
Smiling Through Chaos's reply:Hannah, the pleasure was all mine. Seeing your smiles on the day of your wedding was exactly as described by your now mother-in-law, the two of you are "magic." Thank you for all of your kind words, and I'm looking forward to updates!

Amazing Event Planner that'll make your event magical!
I had the pleasure of working with Amanda recently and she was an absolute pleasure! I could tell how much she cared for her clients and how above and beyond she would go to make sure every event was exactly what her clients were looking for. If you're in need of an event planner, look no further! 5 stars across the board.Sent on 12/18/2018

Professional & Exceptionally Efficient
My wife and I had the pleasure of working with Amanda in planning a special event. She is both professional and exceptionally efficient; ahead of the curve in every detail. Amanda relieved my wife and I of all the stress that comes with planning such an event. She has just the right combination of professionalism and personal charm. It felt as if we had a personal friend assisting us. I would like to thank her for the outstanding job she did in making this event one of best experiences I and my family has ever had.Sent on 08/15/2019

Working with Amanda made the whole process so much easier for our clients! She handled everything from contracts to timelines and everything in between. She did a wonderful job and the event was absolutely fabulous!!
I've worked with Smiling Through Chaos on multiple weddings, and I'm honored to give her the highest possible recommendation. Amanda’s email is “efficientamanda,” and after getting to know her, I can say that is so perfect for her! Of course, she’s not only extremely efficient, capable, knowledgable, and on top of everything, she is also full of sunshine, which to me, is how it should feel working on weddings! Amanda makes doing this job fun, which is truly why I love working with her so much!
We had a great time working with Amanda. Highly recommended!
