    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.

    Wonderful to work with!

    I worked with Amanda Hudes in preparing for a wedding room block at the Park Ridge Marriott, where I work as a Sales Manager. She was always so pleasant to work with, and extremely professional. Throughout the months leading up to the event, she made herself available whenever I needed her, whether the detail was big or small. Responsiveness is critical for such a big event, and she never disappointed. I highly recommend her for this, along with her attention to detail, flexibility, and knowledge of the industry.

    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!
