    PepperTree Spring Wedding

    Amanda helped us every step of the way planning my daughter's wedding. She was a calming and professional guide while planning and as a result everything was perfect the day of the wedding.

    It was such a pleasure working with you, Nancy! We absolutely loved every little detail of Kasey & Brandon's wedding and could not be happier with the way it all turned out. Your whole family was just so kind!

    I wish that I was able to give Amanda and her team more stars! As a bakery we work with a lot of coordinators and when a couple mentions that Amanda is their coordinator I am always SUPER excited. This means a flawless, calm wedding and there is nothing better than that! Amanda is always going above and beyond for her clients and her vendors and I totally appreciate that. We always look forward to working with her.

    Professional, supportive, empathetic, and thorough

    I worked with Amanda Holder over the weekend for a beautiful wedding at Opolo Vineyards, and I was so incredibly impressed and delighted by the services provided by her and her team. They were professional and always had a smile on their faces, and executed the event with attention to detail and a robust guest experience. I will not hesitate to recommend Amanda to any future bride!

    Amanda is amazing!!!!

    Always a pleasure working with Amanda and her team. My job as a videographer is so much easier when I'm working with her. She actually referred me to the client and we made a perfect connection. She communicated with me from the beginning to the end and made sure I was aware of every detail of the day to make sure I would do the best job I could. Amanda is amazing and I have been fortunate and extremely grateful to have had so many opportunities to work with her. I cannot recommend her enough and hope to work with her again soon.

    Professional, Top-Notch, and Thorough!

    Amanda and her team were a delight to work with!! The design and execution were flawless and the day went by seamlessly. Amanda had referred us and we connected right away with the client. During the planning process, Amanda and her team were thorough and provided all the details we needed as photographers. We were able to capture all the details and provide the client with excellent experience as a result! I can't wait to work with Amanda and her team again and would highly recommend her over and over!

    Amanda is the BEST!

    Amanda and team are simply the best! Having worked with them countless times on projects ranging from weddings, corporate and private events I can tell you that they make the job of all other event vendors easier. Communication is constant and like clockwork. I always know exactly when to expect timelines and updates from Amanda. I wish I could clone her and take to all of my events!

    Amanda's Amazing Coordinators!

    Amanda and her lovely team of ladies were great to collaborate with. I work my fair share of weddings, and Amanda and her team absolutely knocked it out of the park. They controlled the night with ease and made other vendors feel comfortable. Always remaining accommodating to all parties on-site. Would absolutely love to work more flawless weddings together in the future!

    Amanda Holder Events is the best!

    Amanda and her team are literally the best, no hyperbole. From start to finish, Amanda was there for guidance whenever I needed help but was hands off when I was happy planning things on my own. She handled all of the challenging things (like working with the caterer to determine all their specific needs or confirming our guest counts and timeline with all our vendors) and kept me involved at all points. She also has relationships with so many amazing local vendors so knows exactly who to recommend for you and your style. Not only is she amazing, her team is fantastic as well! They were able to take all my personal items and decor and created these amazing displays that were so beautiful - all without any input from me, which allowed me to focus on getting ready and being present at our wedding. They made the day of run so, so smoothly which allowed both me and my husband (and our families) to just enjoy instead of worrying or working. I couldn't recommend Amanda more!

    Amanda is the BEST!! Hire her... you will not be disappointed.

    Amanda went above and beyond on my wedding day. Though she may have seen it as doing her job; on behalf of both the brides family and the grooms family, she absolutely killed it. Amanda and her mom who was there to help the day of, were a dream come true and without those two, my wedding would not have been possible. The next morning at brunch, we all sat around and talked about how important she was to our special day and how thankful we were for her presence. Amanda paid attention to every small detail, took care of any mishaps that may have happened along the way, and made sure everything was on point. The vision I had of my wedding vs what Amanda put together, was beyond what I could have imagined and I know she is the number one person to thank for it. In the very beginning, the groom questioned why we needed a wedding coordinator (guys will never understand). I tried explaining to him several times the reasoning, then when he said he could do ‘all that’, I finally told him it was required by our venue. Upon waking up the morning after the wedding, he looked at me and said “Amanda killed it”. He then apologized for ever doubting why I hired her and is 100% just as thankful as I am. I did not read reviews or interview any other coordinator before hiring Amanda as she came highly recommended by both my venue and florist, so I figured I would snag her before someone else did. I don't regret that decision for one second- there is a reason why everyone says Amanda Holder Events is the best in town! Thank you so much for everything Amanda! I sure hope we can cross paths again some day.

    Amazing!!!

    Amanda and her team were an absolute dream to work with! I have been wanting to work with Amanda for a very long time as I had heard nothing but amazing things and her and her team did not disappoint! She blew away my expectations with her professionalism, organization, communication, and easy going attitude! The day couldn't have gone any smoother with her running the show. She made my life incredibly easy and I had nothing to stress over during the event, knowing she had everything under control. I wish I could have her coordinating at the venue every weekend! I am already looking forward to our next wedding together and she is someone that I will highly recommend to brides searching for a wedding planner!

    I worked with Amanda & her team for the first time at a wedding at The White Barn a few weeks ago. Being fairly new to the business I wasn’t sure what to expect.

    A Dream Come True.

    When we first met Amanda, we had already found a venue and a few of the vendors. We had lots of ideas and even some experience with event planning, however we needed to find someone who was willing to listen to our vision, add experience and expertise and coordinate all the details to make this dream come true. Enter Amanda Holder. We could not have been more fortunate that she and her team were available. She is beyond organized and professional. She is also calm, cool and collected plus an all around nice person. Planning a wedding involves a lot of moving parts, details and questions. Amanda was always there to reassure us, answer a quick question or give advise in a very timely manner. Her extensive knowledge, insight and connectivity to the local wedding community was invaluable. As mother of the bride, and being from out of the area, we felt like we were in good hands and trusted her. Amanda and her team took all the logistical worries out of the wedding day. We were able to enjoy moment because they took care of working with all the vendors, setting up and orchestrating the wedding and reception. What I didn't anticipate, however, was how well Amanda would take care of us. Her timing is impeccable and she was always around when needed or simply to check in. Amanda is very talented as a wedding planner and coordinator and I would highly recommend her and her team. My only regret would be that we didn't connect with her sooner in the process. She made the dream come true and we will be forever grateful.

    Communication is invaluable!

    I think the first thing I noticed was a commitment to strong communication, Amanda and her team are constantly in contact with each other, their clients, the vendors of those clients, and everyone involved in making a wedding what it is. That level of Clarity for everyone to operate under is just priceless, Thanks again to Amanda, Elyse, and Shea for all their hard work this weekend!
