Amy was really brilliant from start to finish. She was very responsive, extremely reliable, and totally professional. On the day she was fantastic - she was a very calming influence which suited us as a couple perfectly. She took care of everything as we knew she would but she also was adaptable, when the odd little thing went wrong, to the point that we didn't even know until afterwards. She went above and beyond by making two trips to drop off all our supplies back to our hotel after the wedding. She even lent me her shoes to wear for the reception when mine had left me with blisters galore! We would have no hesitation in recommending Amy to any of our friends and family.Sent on 10/26/2017

One of the best decisions we made
Hiring Amy as our coordinator was one of the best decisions we made when planning our wedding. She was great at pointing out subtle issues in our plans that we'd failed to consider, suggested an awesome band (the Lucky Devils), and helped us negotiate a couple tricky situations with the venue. During the wedding itself she was calm and decisive when, minutes before we were supposed to go out, I realized I'd left the rings in our hotel room. I was obviously in a bit of a panic, but she helped us get stand-in rings from friends and family and snapped us back to reality. She also set aside some hors d'oeuvres during the cocktail hour to make sure we actually had a chance to eat and otherwise just kept things running smoothly. Would definitely hire again!Sent on 06/30/2019

We recommend Amy's wedding coordination service!
Amy was very responsive and easy to work with. She helped us come up with the timeline, coordinated with the vendors and wedding party, and was a huge help on the wedding day itself, directing the guests between our two venues and setting up the reception. In the months leading up to our wedding, she helped us with the many questions we had about how and what we should do for the ceremony and reception. Since we didn't have strong opinions on most things, it was great to have someone help us envision how things would work.Sent on 01/02/2019

Calm and creative coordinator across the board
As my husband and I return to normal life, we're looking back on the big day with so much happiness and pride in what we made happen. So much of that is a credit to Amy - she kept us realistic while shooting for the moon, calm in the face of surprises, and super organized to keep everything moving seamlessly so we could just enjoy the entire day. We had both our ceremony and reception at the UC Berkeley Botanical Garden in early October 2018 and Amy brought a high level of experience to help us achieve our unique and somewhat unconventional vision. We really appreciated her creative, organized, and openly communicative approach to make sure everything went off without a hitch.Sent on 11/04/2018
We're thrilled that we got a chance to work with her on a day that means so much and would absolutely recommend her to other couples for their special day.

Amy is wonderful!
We had the opportunity to work with Amy as our day-of coordinator for our wedding at the beginning of October at the UC Berkeley Botanical Garden. I cannot recommend Amy highly enough. She was calm, incredibly organized, and made everything about our day run smoothly. Our reception was in a different location than our ceremony site, and Amy handled the logistics perfectly. Amy felt like so much more than a day of coordinator--she answered questions for us several months in advance over email, and met with us in person twice to review logistics and walk through our venue. She offered great advice, created our day-of timeline, and confirmed logistics with our vendors. On the day of our wedding, we knew we had nothing to worry about, and she made us feel so calm. Amy is wonderful and we would highly recommend her to other couples looking for a perfect wedding coordinator!Sent on 10/20/2018

Amy was an absolute pleasure to work with! Out of all the wedding vendors that we used (and there were a lot of them), Amy far and away was the most organized, helpful, responsive, and just overall fun to work with. From day one, she was clear about her role in our wedding and ensured that we were continually moving things in the right direction. She was available to chat and email pretty much around the clock. She also gave us recommendations on a couple other vendors, all of whom turned out to be great. Having now been through the wedding planning process, I can guarantee that your going to have stressful times - it just comes with the territory. But with Amy by your side, you'll have peace of mind knowing that everything is going to be taken care of because Amy knows what she's doing and this is certainly not her first rodeo. You will not regret having Amy by your side on your big day!Sent on 10/30/2017
Helen · Married on 08/05/2017
Amy was a huge help on the day of our wedding. She is quick to notice little things that need attention and calmly resolves issues before you even notice there's a problem. I personally didn't want to spend time or mental energy into putting out fires all day--what's the point of having a celebration if you're going to be stressed out the whole time? It was awesome to have such a competent and intuitive person ready to help with anything we might need. I would highly recommend Amy to any couple aiming for a stress-free wedding day!Sent on 10/18/2017

Amy is truly a life saver! A woman's wedding day is one of the most important days of her life with planning each and every detail to perfection. Unfortunately, the wedding planner we had originally hired had to step away due to family difficulties with 3 months to go and Amy swooped in to save the day. I love planning and so I did all of the initial planning and Amy was there for our rehearsal and day-of. She checked in with me often before the rehearsal though, and was great about answering any and all questions I had even outside of our check-in meetings. The rehearsal would have been a challenge for anyone because I have a very loud family, but Amy was able to take charge of this boisterous group in an amicable way that wasn't controlling. Then the day of the wedding could not have been more perfect! We had the wedding at my parents’ house and it was very important to me that my parents not lift a finger that day---Amy made sure that that happened. The entire day went off without a hitch (at least none other than my husband, my parents or myself knew about). We had a fabulous time --- a dream wedding and I honestly think that it could not have happened that way without Amy at the reigns! I could not recommend this wonderful woman higher!Sent on 10/17/2017
Kari · Married on 07/14/2017
Amy was AMAZING! I honestly don't know what the day would have been without her. Even in high-stress situations, Amy was calm, collected and found the best solution quickly. She was quick on her feet and most importantly identified issues before they happened or even came to our attention. Our day was exactly what we had envisioned and we can't thank Amy enough for her positivity and fantastic work. ❤️ If you're on the fence about making the decision to hire her, I'll let you know right now - it will be the best decision you make for your big day!Sent on 11/07/2017

We had a wonderful time working with Amy and have recommended her to our friends. She was indispensable, like a director on the day of. Informed the wedding party & parents to go directly to her and do as she says and things just worked. She handled a number of surprises & kept stuff on time so everyone enjoyed themselves (couple & wedding party included). If I could do it over again the first thing I'd do would be to hire Amy.Sent on 02/20/2018

Wow, where to begin? Amy did an AMAZING job.Sent on 11/10/2016
I could not imagine our big day without her. Amy went above and beyond. Without her I would have been a stressed out mess on my wedding day trying to get all the vendors, helpers, and stuff organized. She took care of any little item that came up before we could even notice.
I HIGHLY recommend Amy - from the day we hired her until the last guest left the venue she was amazing.
Harlow · Married on 10/15/2016
Amy is the best. We hired her to be our day-of coordinator, but she was extremely available and responsive from the time we hired her (more than a year before the wedding day!) through the night of the wedding. She met with me and my wife to go over anything we needed to discuss, and was very helpful with recommendations and tips to make sure our day went well. We couldn't have asked for better.Sent on 11/10/2016
Insun · Married on 08/08/2016
Amy is the best quality wedding planner you could hope for, and at a very reasonable price. We were so glad that she was there running everything smoothly, and even with all of our pre-planning, we didn’t truly know how incredibly important she was until the day of the wedding. You plan so much until the wedding and if you don’t have a capable coordinator, things won’t go well. She was particularly great with the flow of the people and timeline and suggested important elements during the planning stage. Also all the vendor recommendations that she suggested turned out to be impeccable! She will run your day flawless and you will be so thankful after the day is over!Sent on 10/19/2016
Katrina · Married on 08/06/2016
Amy was the best. She was chill when I needed her to be chill, and yet always on it. Our day was ABSOLUTELY PERFECT and she was completely essential to that -- wrangling our parents, our decor, everything. I can't recommend her enough!Sent on 08/11/2016
Hitch Perfect's reply:Thanks, Katrina! To use your word, you were probably the most chill bride I've ever worked with. You wedding was classy, simple, and had just the right amount of little elements that reflected your and Andrew's shared interests. I still can't get over the 'spirit animal' escort cards - soooo cute!!
Ariana · Married on 07/09/2016
We had our wedding in early July 2016 and Amy from Hitch Perfect was absolutely fantastic!! Our reception vendor required us to have a day-of coordinator. We were hesitant initially, but from working with Amy and having a blast at our big day, Amy was totally worth every penny!!Sent on 07/29/2016
We wanted a coordinator who is chill but very organized, open to new ideas, and open to intercultural weddings. My husband and I came from different cultural backgrounds, and we wanted to incorporate both into the event. We wanted a wedding that's intimate, intercultural, environmentally-friendly, and not fussy. We saw Amy's portfolio and thought that it's a great fit!
We loved working with Amy! My mother-in-law also was a big part of the planning process and she raved about working with Amy!
Amy listened, gave her expert opinion, and executed our vision flawlessly. I consider myself an organized person, and it was nice to hand off the work we've done the past year to Amy. We asked her to do the final briefings with all vendors, and we're glad we did!
It was so worth it to spend the day of completely worry-free! We enjoyed our big day and didn't have to worry about set-up, timekeeping, clean up, anything. I'm usually a worrier about these things. All we needed to do was to enjoy our day and be 100% present. spend time with family and friends.
Also, Amy accepts payments in Paypal and Square cash! This is a HUGE bonus for me because I prefer electronic payments.
I’ll post pictures when we get ours back from the photographer. Meanwhile, LOOK NO FURTHER!
Hitch Perfect's reply:Ariana, you and Jonah were such a pleasure to work with. I loved that you had a very specific vision and so many unique elements to the wedding that made it a perfect reflection of you as a couple. I can't wait to see the pictures of those Indonesian dolls and the beautiful chuppah in the redwood forest! What a truly magical place for two nature lovers.
Kathy · Married on 07/09/2016
Amy is the epitome of calmness and organization. She has a way of sensing the general tenor of an event that's being sought, and makes sure that it happens. I'd say she's like a very skilled conductor: she makes sure that everyone plays their parts at the correct time, in the correct way so that everyone shines. Brava, Amy - you helped give my son and daughter-in-law a flawless wedding that will stay with everyone forever!Sent on 08/28/2016
Hitch Perfect's reply:Kathy, your entire family was a joy to work with and I respect you all so much for your attention to detail. It made everything that much smoother and easy to 'conduct', as you say. You get major bonus points for throwing in some musical analogies here (you truly get the origins of 'Hitch Perfect')!

Amy was wonderful, she did an amazing job making sure that everything went smoothly on the day and kept me calm throughout :-). She was very responsive to my emails leading up to the event and was able to give great recommendations on flowers, lights and music.Sent on 06/11/2016
Mariah · Married on 04/30/2016
Hiring Amy at Hitch Perfect was by far the best decision we made for our wedding. Knowing that Amy was behind the scenes making sure everything was running smoothly meant that I could relax and actually enjoy my wedding day without having to worry about vendors running late, or any other problems.Sent on 05/04/2016
From the very beginning Amy was extremely helpful with the planning process. While we hired her as a day of coordinator, she really went above and beyond to make sure we were fully prepared for our day. It was so helpful to have her to bounce ideas off of, and to know that she would remind me of all the little details and not let anything fall off of my plate.
Amy is extremely professional, knowledgeable and thoughtful. The best thing about Amy is her calming presence. While we ran into a couple of problems at the wedding, she dealt with them seamlessly, and we had no idea anything was wrong until after the fact. I knew that everything was always under control.
I started out thinking hiring a coordinator was an unnecessary luxury-- but boy was I wrong. I am SO GLAD we hired Amy. Having gone through the process, I now realize how essential a calm and reliable coordinator is, and our wedding just wouldn't have been the same without Amy and Hitch Perfect. I would hire her again in a heartbeat, and will definitely be recommending her to all the future brides I know!
Hitch Perfect's reply:Wow, Mariah, I'm totally speechless! Thank you so much for your kind words - I'm so glad I could help make your and Michael's dream wedding come true. You two are proof that simple, natural, and fun weddings are possible! I will highly recommend Stern Grove as a venue to future couples simply because of all you were able to achieve with that space. All my best wishes on a very happy future together.
Darlene · Married on 10/10/2015
We hired Amy as a day of wedding coordinator for our wedding last October. She did a wonderful job as I wasn't approached with any details or questions throughout the day and night. Not only was she there about 12 hours on the day of the wedding, she also came to walk throughs at both our ceremony venue and reception venue. Using her music connections, she put us in touch with a great brass trio for our outdoor wedding ceremony. I did a lot of things myself for the wedding, it was great to have someone else review all the details and create the timeline, to ensure I didn't miss anything. She is very professional and detail oriented. I highly recommend Amy at Hitch Perfect for anyone who needs a day of wedding coordinator.Sent on 03/18/2016
Hitch Perfect's reply:Thank you for the kind words, Darlene! Your ceremony venue was stunning and a perfect place for a fall wedding. I use those photos everywhere and I'm so glad you a had beautiful weather that day! You and Alan were truly the behind-the-scenes rockstars for planning a wedding for 250+ people in just a few months. By being extremely detail-oriented yourselves, you made my job easy :)
Onika · Married on 09/06/2015
Hitch Perfect did an amazing job with my wedding day! Amy is quick to respond, flexible professional and above all else made me feel as though she cared just as deeply with the events execution as I did. I've already recommended them to a few friends getting married new year.Sent on 09/17/2015
Hitch Perfect's reply:Aw, thanks Onika! Coming from a fellow event planner, that means a lot. And I'm glad I made you feel like I cared about making sure everything ran perfectly, because I did :)
Cheri · Married on 04/09/2015
Calm, confident and professional! Descriptors you may not know will be pivotal on your wedding day. I had no idea. If you plan on getting married only once in your life, make it a perfect day by hiring a wedding planner who aims for perfection. My wife and I made the right choice. So should you! Amy Sedan at Hitch Perfect is your girl!Sent on 05/19/2015
Hitch Perfect's reply:Cheri, I'm so happy I got to be a part of your and Meghan's special day! I've posted so many photos from your wedding simply because you two emanate such effortless and comfortable love. How fun was it to say the words 'legally wedded wife/spouse'?? :)
Elizabeth · Married on 04/27/2013
I hired Amy as the music coordinator for my April 2013 black tie wedding, which took place in the Fairmont Penthouse in San Francisco. She worked closely with my principal wedding planner, and her assistance proved to be invaluable!Sent on 05/27/2015
First she helped me select appropriate music for the various stages of the ceremony. In some instances (e.g. the processional) I knew what tune I wanted, but in other instances she was able to present a range of possibilities for me and my fiance to choose from. Once we had an idea of the tunes, she helped us decide what would be the best combination of musicians and instruments to achieve the right effect for that particular space, taking into account space considerations, acoustics, etc. Then she used her extensive contacts in the San Francisco classical music world to recruit a trio of extraordinary artists to perform in our wedding. We were invited to attend one of their rehearsals and provide feedback. The final result was spectacular and the wedding music ended up being one of my favorite aspects of the whole day.
Amy is personable, calm, professional, and an excellent listener. She exudes grace and tranquility under pressure. Her prices are also very reasonable. She would be an excellent choice to plan your entire wedding from start to finish, just to coordinate on the big day, or to assist your principal wedding planner with music and any other aspects.
Hitch Perfect's reply:Thanks for all your kinds words, Betsy! Your wedding was the gateway to realizing that I could start my business and go beyond being involved in just the music aspect. Not to mention the whole day from ceremony to midnight snacks was simply stunning - something to strive for with my future couples!

Wonderful day-of coordinator!
Amy coordinated the complicated logistics of our Stinson Beach wedding this past October and she did a great job putting together the little things, e.g. a "Just Married" banner that we forgot to assign to a wedding party member to hang for photos, ensuring we tipped the officiant, and helping us with the ceremony procession and exit so we could have some private time after the ceremony.Sent on 12/28/2018
She did a great job thinking on her feet and keeping us informed of time passing so we knew where to be and when. As a bride and groom, we felt that we could relax and think of each other since Amy ensured we moved through the afternoon and evening with ease.
We are grateful for her services.
Maria · Married on 04/30/2017
Amy helped coordinate our wedding in April 2017. She came as a recommendation from a friend, and did not disappoint. Amy was flexible and responsive, and helped with everything from music choice to setting up some of our DIY decorations and other accessories at the wedding. She also corralled everyone and ran the wedding rehearsal, which was hard to do with our rowdy crew of family and bridal party. Amy was also the best value around for a day-of planner, so I would definitely recommend her for a Bay Area wedding on a budget!Sent on 07/07/2017
