    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.

    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.

    Patty, always always friends, and I'm so glad I could help to make the day as amazing as it was. Seeing the love in your family was so special, and I look forward to many more events with you in the future!

    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!!

  • Erin Hill, Harpist & Singer Wedding Musicians

    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!
