We hired Amanda to be our Wedding Coordinator in Mar 2018. In the month prior to our wedding, she became the main point of contact for all of vendors. It would have been very difficult for us to actually enjoy our wedding without her help. She had a lot of great recommendations for vendors that we hadn't considered, and really helped us iron out the logistics for our wedding. And I must say that our wedding was not "simple", even though the guest count was relatively small. During the wedding, we had a slight hiccup when our nanny couldn't check into our hotel suite with our 3 month year old baby. Amanda was the first to answer her phone and helped resolve the issue very quietly and calmly. Amanda is very professional, has a great attitude and I'd highly recommend her to anyone looking for a Wedding Planner/Coordinator.

My husband and I were married at Berkeley Church in March of 2017. During the planning process I knew I needed a month-of coordinator! I wanted someone in my corner the day of the wedding to relieve the pressure off my family and friends. Amanda sat down with the two of us and we all just clicked. One of the things that stood out for us was her complete immersion in the wedding industry. She volunteers with Brides Project (where I had bought my dress) and she had also been the office manager for our Officiant (all coincidence!)! She has other wedding industry experience on her resume as well. So my confidence in her knowledge of the industry was already pretty high! All of this experience has given her such a well-rounded view of the wedding process. I thought I much of my wedding already planned when I met her. I knew who most of my vendors were going to be and had booked most of them. I knew I needed someone there for day-of. But I received so much more from her month-of package! The first big win was her suggestion of a florist. I was unsure how I could achieve what I wanted on our small budget. She made that happen. She really helped me a lot with logistics. Timeline and flow were things she had so much insight into. My venue had a coordinator included in my package (and she was great) but they are there to make sure the food gets served and the chairs are in place. A month-of planner is there for the couple! She ensured we had our bouquets in hand and the vendors were where they needed to be when they needed to be there! It was the best peace of mind! She excelled at listening to what we wanted and never attempted to impose her own aesthetic onto us, which meant a lot (I don't think I could do that, lol!). The best part of working with her was her calm and confidence. I knew that no matter what happened she would just take care of it and I wouldn't have to worry! The last thing I'll say is that all of my vendors also had lovely things to say about her! My band was composed of all very good friends who were just in love with her! As were my family and my wedding party. She was so respectful to everyone but was still able to wrangle them.She even had to sew my dress after a wardrobe malfunction!

As a bride, there is no one else I would have entrusted my day to. I've had the pleasure to work alongside Amanda on numerous occasions as a fellow wedding planner, and so I already knew that she was up to the task. Amanda was amazing! Throughout the planning she checked in with me to see how things were going, and knew how to get me to relax and have fun on the day, which is no easy feat as I'm a type A control freak. She took care of all the little details and I didn't have to worry about a thing. Amanda gave me great advice and support and my day would not have been the same without her.
