It is hard to find the right words to express how much I loved working with Spencer Special Events. Let me try this in three parts!Sent on 06/13/2019
1. From the start, Amanda put me at her ease with her extremely warm and caring disposition and her excellent sense of humor. I have a background in Event Planning in New York City and I was pleasantly surprised by the high level of taste and service I experienced throughout the planning process with SSE. Amanda and Annie (her wonderful colleague) have strong relationships with excellent local vendors that I would have never found on my own. They were extremely patient when my work schedule prevented me from paying as much attention to the wedding as I probably should have at certain points in the planning process. As the wedding neared, I felt so calm and ready to enjoy the weekend!
2. CUE HURRICANE FLORENCE. My husband and I were supposed to be married on September 15, 2018, but the weekend before the news coverage became all about Hurricane Florence. Although beautiful Bluffton was (thankfully) spared from the storm, the governor of SC got a little too excited and called for a mandatory evacuation the Monday of our wedding week. As you can imagine, it was incredibly stressful and upsetting but SSE was so helpful and supportive. First of all, Amanda is so sweet you could tell she felt heartbroken too, bless her! She and Annie immediately handled everything with all vendors so we could focus on notifying our guests. They were so patient with us as we decided if we would reschedule, and we ultimately decided that we would reschedule for the Spring.
3. Fast forward to April, after Amanda and Annie rebooked most of the wedding vendors and magically recreated our original wedding weekend! I had been so pleased with the team throughout all of the planning and the drama but their onsite/day of planning is next level amazing. I barely had anything to do and could focus on enjoying the long weekend of celebrations with my guests! Everything was absolutely gorgeous and well-run, and they truly thought of every detail. Amanda and Annie have a larger team they use for wedding day support and I felt like I had an army of planners making sure everything was going as planned. Plus, they had me laughing throughout the day, and you can’t beat that.
SSE, thank you for the best weekend we could have ever imagined! My advice to future brides of South Carolina: HIRE THEM!

Choosing Amanda and her team at Spencer Special Events was the second best decision I have ever made (the groom being the first)! I wasn't going to hire a planner because I had already spent so much time planning and had very specific ideas about what I wanted. I even thought planning a beach wedding from Atlanta was possible, because I had started so far in advance! When my venue let me know that I could not begin to decorate until 2 hours before the ceremony started, I knew this was bigger than me! That's when I began looking for planners. I interviewed over a dozen, but when I heard Amanda's voice, I knew she was the one! It doesn't matter where you are in the planning process. Her team spent over a year helping me plan the destination wedding of my dreams. Over the course of the year, there were literally hundreds of emails, several in-person meetings/phone calls and countless deliveries that she received on my behalf. Somehow, SSE did not miss one single request and her team made the reality of our wedding day beyond anything I had envisioned.Sent on 04/26/2018
SSE provided me and 8-10 vendors (most from her incredible vendor list) an impeccable timeline. They also went above and beyond to take care of me and my wedding party and executed a worry-free perfect day. Because of SSE I was relaxed and actually enjoyed every single second of the day. The team not only have incredible attitudes and boundless energy, they literally smiled all day. I cannot say enough about how awesome Amanda and Annie and the entire team is at SSE - they didn't just give me what I wanted but items from my wedding wish list and made it all look effortless. I only wished I had allowed them to plan the entire wedding, instead of just getting the partial package! They were such a pleasure, I'm saddened that I no longer get to work with them! There are no words to express our gratitude for their effort, professionalism and hard work that made a fairy tale out of our wedding day!

It's hard to put into words how valuable Amanda and everyone at Spencer Special Events expertise was when planning my destination wedding. Being that I live in Pittsburgh, PA I knew I needed help to create my dream wedding. I probably talked to at least 5 planners in Hilton Head prior to picking Spencer Special Events. From the moment I heard Amanda's voice I knew she was the right woman for the job. Her exquisite taste, wonderful relationships with vendors, patience and organization and knowledge of the wedding industry made the planning process so easy for me. Hiring Amanda was the best money spent and worth every penny if not more. Everyone in my bridal party was shocked at how flawless the day went and that there were no issues! The only downside is that my wedding is now over and I don't have the pleasure of dealing with Amanda and her team on a regular basis. Thank you Amanda for making wedding planning a joy!Sent on 10/15/2014
Great and talented wedding coordinator
Amanda is awesome to work with. She always takes great care of my bands and keeps her clients happy.
Amanda Spencer is a true professional! She's organized, timely and detail orientated. In additon to being an amazing event planner, she is also sweet as pie with a bright smile to match. A Spencer event is an event to remember!
