MMW is a must-have!
I had an Indian-American fusion wedding that was a 2 day affair, and I was worried about finding a coordinator familiar with Hindu weddings that was also within budget. I am SO glad I found Magnificent Moments Weddings and that Amanda assigned my event to Brittni for Day Of Coordination. My wedding day(s) would not have been the same without Brittni's guidance and attention. She stepped in about 6 months before the wedding to assist with timelines, checklists, etc. She was organized, quick to respond, and helped execute everything just as we had discussed, including coordinating with all my booked vendors, setting up DIY decor, and making sure I had drinks and food in hand throughout the night. Brittni even gave me the back off of her own earring after I lost mine right before my sangeet - she is a true gem. Thank you, Brittni and MMW!!!Sent on 04/27/2021

Above and Beyond
The best thing we have done in the wedding planning process is work with Joelle and Magnificent Moments Weddings. In the midst of a pandemic Joelle did everything she could to take stress off of us and keep the focus on what was important - our marriage. She handled rescheduling our vendors for our reception next year and planned/coordinated our intimate ceremony on our original date. It was truly above and beyond any expectations I had. They are the best and I feel thankful to have developed a relationship with this business and Joelle.Sent on 08/18/2020

HIRE THEM NOW! It will be the best decision you will make for your wedding day.
I cannot put into words how amazing Shelby and Amanda are! Shelby was available any day and any time via phone call, text, or email during the planning process and on the day of my wedding to answer any questions, regardless of how large or how small, or to calm my nerves at the times I needed it most. Shelby executed a FLAWLESS event, ESPECIALLY considering she got stuck in an elevator taking some of my things back to my hotel room for over an hour DURING my wedding. She had things so well planned out that I had no idea until she was gone until I saw Amanda when we were headed out to our sparkler exit. While it was not Amanda's job to be there that night, she generously came after working another wedding so I could have the sparkler exit I had planned. Her husband even brought the sparklers from her home to the venue because the sparklers I provided were stuck with Shelby in the elevator. The next morning, Shelby's only concern was if my husband and I had the wedding we dreamed of (not the fact that she had a traumatic experience in an elevator). She never made the situation about her, she made the situation about US. After the hotel profusely apologized to me regarding the incident, I kindly explained to them that my night wasn't ruined because of how amazing Magnificent Moments is but it easily could have been if it wasn't for there professionalism, planning, and execution. They make the day about YOU and what YOU want, NOT what other people want and they will work tirelessly to make that happen. I am speaking from experience here.Sent on 11/06/2019
The goal in hiring a coordinator for me was to make my day less stressful and more successful. I knew things were going to go wrong but I didn't want to know about them. My goal was met and exceeded. Hiring Magnificent Moments was the upmost BEST decision I ever made on my wedding day with the exception of marrying my husband. I promise they will make you feel the same way!!!

Friendly, organized, and experienced!
You should absolutely hire MMW to coordinate your wedding.Sent on 06/10/2019
They are amazing! Without getting into too much detail, I needed to find a new planner after my first couldn't complete services. Suffice to say, I needed to find someone competent, kind, organized, and experienced to clean up that mess but also get me to the finish line in less than three months.
When I emailed Amanda and then had a phone call with her a little later, I was honestly sold - a little scared still, but I knew they were different. At this point of my planning, I was truly just ready for my wedding to be over, I was trying to pick up the pieces from my home in California while the wedding was in North Carolina, and I was just honestly distraught at the whole situation. Amanda was calm, straightforward, and funny and she got what I was looking for immediately. She was BEYOND understanding of my hesitation to work with another planning team and I knew I needed someone though so I signed with MMW - I’m glad I did!
Amanda directed me to Shelby, who was going to be my coordinator. The highest compliment I can pay to anyone is to say that they work hard and they care and Shelby is the hardest working, most thoughtful woman in the biz! From the moment we were connected, she jumped in and got us organized and moving. She is direct, honest, friendly, and organized - exactly what every bride needs and especially what I needed. She answered my many MANY questions promptly and thoughtfully and never made me feel like I was bothering her, it was honestly like talking with an old friend. The day of my wedding, there were some minor hiccups and Shelby handled everything like a pro. I honestly had no idea until after the ceremony because she was so committed to us just enjoying our day and having no stress. My parents were both super impressed by MMW from start to finish and both remarked on how much they could tell Shelby cared about delivering us the perfect day. Our guests had a blast and we got several comments that everything ran smoothly and that’s definitely thanks to Shelby. I could honestly write a small novel about how great it was to be an MMW Bride but to wrap it up - I would definitely recommend Shelby and the MMW team!

Best investment ever!
Amanda Allsbrook and the Magnificent Moments team is the best! Amanda was very professional and extremely organized. It was the best investment ever. With only 5 months to plan, Amanda kept us on task, helped us stay on budget and made all of our dreams come true. She knew all of the vendors and made sure they met our expectations. Words cannot express how great they are! We are thinking of how we can work with her again in the very near future!Sent on 05/27/2019

Brittni and Amanda are fantastic! I had several meetings with these two prior to my wedding day. They had great ideas and are super creative. My parents and I had so many questions during our initial and final walk-throughs of the venue but it wasn't a problem. Brittni was very responsive and willing to work hard to make sure my wedding day was perfect.Sent on 06/12/2018

I decided to hire a day of wedding planner as a gift to myself for my daughter's wedding. Choosing Amanda and Magnificent Moments Weddings was one of the best decisions I have ever made! She was there every step of the way for me, making sure I was organized and keeping me grounded and figuring out the perfect timeline for the wedding day. On the big day, she went above and beyond looking for an item that had been misplaced and handled the situation with ease. She bustled and sewed my daughters train on the spot before the reception began - yes, she had a sewing kit with her!Sent on 05/07/2018
I cannot thank Amanda and her staff enough for making my daughter's wedding day the perfect event.

I knew I had to hire a wedding planner after seeing the difference between weddings that had a wedding planner and weddings that did not. Let me just say I saw enough tears and stressed out brides without wedding planners on their wedding day to know I was NOT going through all of that. Hiring Magnificent Moments weddings was the best decision I had made during my whole wedding process. The day of your wedding you are so busy getting your wedding party together and getting yourself dressed that you do not have time to handle anything else. Thank goodness for Amanda. I literally did not have to worry about ANYTHING. Between the shuttle bus, cake delivery, Dj and most importantly the decorating of the venue, it all turned out like a dream. She has impeccable taste and can make anyone’s vision for their wedding turn out even better than they imagined. You see her experience really come into play with how detailed she is with the planning process. She has seen it all and knows exactly what to expect and knows how to fix basically any issue that may arise. Other vendors also absolutely love to work with her and she has the best recommendations for vendors that Charlotte has to offer. On my wedding day everyone kept mentioning that they could not believe how calm I was which can all be attributed to Magnificent Moments. I was literally just able to enjoy and take in the entire day. Not only is Amanda a dream to work with but she is also an amazing person and one of the most caring people I have ever met. I highly recommend Magnificent Moments for your wedding.Sent on 05/10/2018

In short: Amanda is 100% worth the investment! She is timely, prompt, creative, organized, patient, encouraging, and well-connected! She knows fantastic vendors, who love working with her, and she is well-respected! An outstanding wedding planner + happy vendors = exceptional wedding! The details: Amanda is an absolute dream to work with! Choosing Amanda was the BEST decision we made. I was hesitant about hiring a wedding planner due to the additional cost, and my perfectionist, organized, ‘do it all’ mentality. But, listen here, you NEED to hire a wedding planner, and when you do, you HAVE to hire Amanda, or the MMW team! Amanda came highly recommended, and after meeting her, I knew that she would be the perfect person to work with. We had a great deal in common, but that doesn’t begin to describe the depth of Amanda’s talent, not to mention her sweet spirit. Amanda is prompt, incredibly organized, and as Tom at the Mint Museum says “she gets everything done, and with a smile on her face.” She was flexible with my schedule, as I planned from afar, and often arranged FaceTime meetings with vendors, and was never more than a text, e-mail, or phone call away. This immensely helped relieve our stress. I still want to text her as a friend! Additionally, she ensured me that we could implement all the little details. We had a valiant search for a classic mustang getaway car, and Amanda was even texting friends of hers who were in the market for classic cars. I’m truly grateful that she always made the process feel like teamwork, even when her expertise far outweighed mine. The day of our wedding, with its many moving pieces, went smoothly due to Amanda’s planning and organization. Moreover, Amanda is well-connected and knows a fantastic team of vendors. Her recommendations were spot on, and both the DJ and flowers stole the show! My parents (and our beloved puppy) love Amanda as much as I do. Weddings are her thing! Thank you Amanda, Shelby and Brittni for EVERYTHING!Sent on 02/02/2018

Working with Amanda Allsbrook at Magnificent Moments Weddings was the reason my wedding and wedding season was a complete dream!
When I got engaged I was sure a wedding planner was a waste of money and unnecessary as I am task oriented and decently organized. However, Amanda came as a referral from a good friend and I travel 2-3 nights a week for my job so I thought it would be worth checking her out at least. From the moment my then fiancé and I met Amanda we knew we wanted to work with her. I remember the thoughtful questions she asked at the very first meeting and that same thoughtfulness and attention to detail remained a key trait of hers though the entire process. Working with Amanda leading up to the wedding was like working with a best friend. I never felt like we were "working" or questioned whether I could call or text her. She never made me feel like I was bothering her or asking too many stupid questions. She acted like the wedding was just as important to her as it was to me. And even though I knew she was coordinating a wedding almost every weekend I felt like my wedding was the only one she ever thought about! Amanda did so many special things for my fiancé and I during our wedding season to make us feel special that I felt like we had been friends forever. I cant imagine the amount of stress I would have felt not knowing she was looking after every detail. Planning for a wedding and being engaged is such a special and sweet time that only comes once in your life and I would not change one thing about having Amanda involved with us during that season.
Planning and leading up to the wedding was a blast with Amanda but the wedding day was even better! Of course like everyone says it was a complete blurr but everything went off without a hitch. There is no way I would have been able to organize all of those details on the day of the wedding and leading up to without MMW.
THANK YOU AMANDA AND TEAM AT MMW!!!!Sent on 11/22/2017
Carolina · Married on 10/15/2017
I had just moved to Charlotte when I got engaged and was very nervous, not only about planning my wedding in general, but also in a city I knew nothing about! I wanted to use a wedding planner but was concerned about the cost of a full service planner, about staying within my budget, and about finding someone who could also be a reliable friend during the entire process. After talking with Amanda, I knew that she would be worth the investment. (And she was!!)
Amanda really took the time to get to know me and my fiance, our initial ideas, our likes and dislikes, and what was important to us. She made us both feel at ease and took away the anxieties we had about our engagement. To kick off planning, she came up with a design board and initial suggestions that were spot on with what I had envisioned. In each stage after that, Amanda focused my attention and energy on options that fit my style and budget so I never felt overwhelmed by too many options or too much information. She knew great vendors and locations and made fantastic suggestions for all of our needs. She also kept us on track with our timeline (which was also something I was nervous about) and used a really cool website to keep us in sync.
During the entire process, Amanda was easy to work with, proactive, prompt, creative, patient with all my questions, supportive of my decisions and ideas, encouraging when I was flustered or anxious, flexible with my hectic work schedule, and made the whole process so much better than it ever would have been on my own. My now husband, who works in operations, was also very impressed with Amanda's timeliness, responsiveness, professionalism, proactive solutions, knowledge base and connections in the city, understanding of our needs, ability to manage vendors and negotiate on our behalf, and focus on our values and priorities. He often said that if Amanda worked in his line of business, he'd hire her!!
I'm so thankful to Amanda for such an incredible wedding!!Sent on 10/09/2017
Magnificent Moments Weddings's reply:I absolutely LOVED working with you! The wedding was a perfect reflection of you two as a couple :)
Amy · Married on 10/07/2017
MMW was amazing! Amanda helped to make my dream wedding come true. The planning process was easy because Amanda used a design book. She took time to put together a design book with different options for everything related to the wedding. From there I was able to pick what I did or maybe did not like. The wedding process really overwhelmed me until I started working with Amanda. She made sure I didn't forget about any of the small details and there are a lot! She was the sweetest person and so easy to work with during the entire process. She will make sure you have the best wedding possible! I would 100% recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding planner.Sent on 10/24/2017

We were married in September 2017 and hired Amanda as our month of coordinator. Let me preface that I must have spoken with every planner in the Charlotte metro area, but just had a feeling that Amanda was the right one for us. I knew immediately that she understood us without ever having met. It was the best decision we made. Over the course of the yearlong planning, she quickly answered every and any question I had, provided great guidance and insight, and really enabled me to feel calm through the entire process. When it came to the weekend of our wedding, she handled it all. I didn't have to worry about a thing and what a blessing that was. My husband and I, along with our family, were really able to live in the moment of the day. We are forever grateful to Amanda and Brittni's help the day of our wedding. They were beyond professional and even more, we are so glad they were a part of our day. We couldn't imagine it any other way.Sent on 11/10/2017
Stacy · Married on 09/03/2017
My husband and I are both planners, by nature and profession, but we knew we needed a rockstar wedding planner to manage the biggest day of our lives and allow us to simply be the bride and groom. Living in NYC and not knowing Charlotte very well, we were fortunate to get a personal recommendation from my mom's neighbor who used Amanda for her daughter's wedding. After our first FaceTime chat with Amanda (thank you technology), we knew we were in great hands! In the months leading up to the wedding, Amanda asked all the right questions, kept us on track and reminded us of the little things we may have missed. She was thoughtful, thorough, professional, calm and always had a smile on her face. In turn, Amanda experienced her first Jewish wedding and was incredibly diligent and respectful of the different traditions. And after a slight shoe mishap, from now on she will always have heel protectors in her emergency kit! Thank you, Amanda, for playing such a pivotal part in our special day!Sent on 11/28/2017
Magnificent Moments Weddings's reply:Thank you so much for being so patient with me and answering all of my questions about traditions! And I am so happy you didn't fall after stepping in that grate!! You two are an awesome couple!

I am so thankful that I hired Magnificent Moments Weddings for my wedding! Amanda is so amazing! I was feeling overwhelmed with all the details that come with wedding planning that I convinced my husband that we needed a wedding planner/day of coordinator. Now, we both agree that booking Amanda was the best decision we could have made in regards to our wedding! She was seriously so helpful, always available, gave her advice when I asked for it (I'm super indecisive so this is exactly what I needed), and thought of a million things I never would have even thought about. Not to mention she put me at ease several times with her kind words when I was getting stressed throughout planning. She came across as a friend while still being professional. Amanda and her team did a great job on the day of my wedding. From making sure every detail with the venue and decorations were perfect to running to put a band aid on my foot right before I walked down the aisle! A true lifesaver! My parents both said she was very helpful and loved her as well! I am truly so happy with Amanda and her services! She was an absolute joy to work with and such a sweet person!!!

Using Magnificent Moments was one of the best decisions that we made when it came to our wedding! My fiance and I live out of state and were worried about bringing together all of the final details since we are so far away. From our first conversation, Amanda and Brittni from MMW put me at ease. I knew immediately that they would be able to carry our wedding visions into reality. Brittni was our AMAZING coordinator and she went above and beyond our expectations. I was so stressed about pulling it all together but Brittni took care of EVERYTHING and make sure our wedding was stress-free. When we arrived at the venue, Brittni and her assistant had everything decorated and set to match our vision. She took care of everything the entire night, making sure we were fed (so important!), coordinating all of our vendors, and handling all the little details. Because of Brittni, we were able to truly enjoy ourselves and visit with our guests. We had so many guests comment on how wonderful Brittni was! If you have any stress at all about pulling together your wedding, hire MMW and they will take good care of you! Thank you Brittni and Amanda!Sent on 08/20/2017

I highly recommend Amanda for "day of" wedding coordination! We were planning our wedding from out of town. Once we arrived in Charlotte for our wedding weekend, we wanted to let go of all the planning details and enjoy. Amanda took all the responsibility with stride and made it look easy. She has a way of confidently and seamlessly making everything fall perfectly in place. What an incredible value to the bride and groom and their families on the wedding day. She's very approachable, organized, efficient, and a good listener. My family, husband and I are all so happy we had Amanda there to choreograph our wedding so beautifully!Sent on 09/01/2017

Amanda was a dream to work with! She did a great job of keeping us on track as we planned the wedding. We really needed a wedding planner to remind us of the small details that didn't occur to us to plan. Amanda helped us make sure that we didn't forget anything and she was full of helpful advice along the way. Her organization and dedication were obvious at the wedding. She planned a timeline that gave the perfect flow to the wedding. Without her help, we wouldn't have known how much time to dedicate to different events.Sent on 07/11/2017
The best part of working with Amanda was that she was able to keep us on track while being both professional and positive. She executed all of the transitions at the wedding flawlessly. We were impressed with how she can take charge and maintain a friendly attitude at the same time!
I didn't get to see Amanda work her magic as she helped organize the set up of the venue, but the ceremony and reception were styled to perfection. We were so lucky to work with Amanda and we would recommend her to anyone!

Marilyn · Married on 07/01/2017
As a wedding venue owner/manager, I look to a wedding planner and coordinator for creativity in problem-solving, a cooperative spirit in working with other vendors, organization in plan, communication, and execution, and professionalism. The team at Magnificent Moments Weddings fits the bill for all of these. After dealing with a sudden and severe thunderstorm for an out-of-doors reception, the spirit of most planners would have been spent. But these true professionals kept going till the last guest departed. The next day, the bride and her family told me the best money they spent for their peace of mind was for the planning team at MMW. Thanks, ladies, for making my job easier!Sent on 07/19/2017

Everything was 100% perfect. She Is very organized and professional. You really feel like you can really trust Amanda to handle such an important event. I was really busy with work the week of the wedding and Amanda went above and beyond to text me and ask me if she needed to go purchase last minute items for the wedding. She was so on top of me and made sure I was on track the whole time.

Amanda, of Magnificent Moments Weddings, helped us to plan our daughter's wedding in Charlotte, NC. With our daughter being in medical school, the wedding being one week before Christmas, and her father and I living in a different state, we can truly say, that we could have never have done it without her! Both my son-in-law and daughter interviewed several wedding planners and knew that they had found the perfect person when they met Amanda. When I had the opportunity to meet her for the first time, I could see why they chose her! Amanda did a wonderful job in ensuring their wedding turned out to be exactly as they had hoped! Amanda was instrumental in choosing and negotiating with the various vendors and made sure to keep the process fun and as stress-free as possible. I particularly appreciated her attention to detail and the event seemed to come together seemlessly and we were all able to fully enjoy every minute of the wedding! She ensured that everything ran on time and smoothly! We would highly recommend Amanda to anyone who is looking for a wedding planner!
