My biggest challenge in writing this review will be to keep it from getting novel-length. Because honestly, I could write a book about how wonderful of a wedding planner Amanda is. We first hired Amanda right after we got engaged in early 2020, based on two separate recommendations from a colleague and my hairdresser. Not long after that, the pandemic hit. To say that it was a challenging and uncertain time to be planning a wedding would be an understatement, but through it all, Amanda was our rock. She provided consistent and responsive support, guidance, and advice, keeping us sane with her optimism and organization. More than anyone else, she made this incredibly complicated and stressful period simple, and even fun. Amanda spent time getting to know us, and knew that we wanted an easygoing and authentic day. From planning out our budget and visiting venues, to choosing an officiant, florist, hair and makeup artists, our amazing photographer, and a killer DJ, Amanda was the one-stop-shop for our wedding decision-making. She would curate a short list of vendors within our budget that she had experience with and would recommend, and each one was fantastic. We trusted her taste, and she never steered us wrong! On the big day, it felt like Amanda was everywhere at once! She carried my bouquet and kept my veil clean during our photoshoot, taped up my dress to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions, supplied bridesmaids with blister bandaids, and handled my friends and family perfectly, all while making sure everything ran on time. Its no exaggeration to say that the choice to hire Amanda was the best decision we made for our wedding. Despite the pandemic times, our wedding day was beautiful, personal, and, above all, fun! I wouldn’t change a thing. My husband and I both credit Amanda for translating our wedding hopes into reality, and would whole-heartedly recommend her to anyone looking to plan a wedding.
