MEET AMY

Making Dreams Come True

I am lucky to say that every day I get to do what I love to do.  Pinch me, please! I literally help couples like yourselves to plan the happiest day of their life, dream of ways to put their special touches on their day and give them the best gift of all and that is the opportunity to be a VIP guest at their own dream wedding!

 

My goal as your planner is to get to know you as a couple, understand your wedding challenges and dreams and desires for your wedding, and help you overcome those obstacles to create memorable memories for the rest of your life. The smile and enjoyment from my couples on their day and the friendships that I make along the way is like the icing on the wedding cake and why I love what I do!

Owner / Wedding Planner

Turning a Vision into Reality

I love planning weddings and events because there are no two events that are alike.  When I meet a couple for the first time, I get all excited as I think to myself, "oh what is going to be our challenge this time?!"  I love the unknown, thinking outside the box and coming up with new fresh ideas or twists on an original idea. I say there are NO RULES at weddings/events. So as we collaborate thru the planning process I will be there to help you visualize the experience you are wanting for your guests and help you come up with solutions to turn that vision into a reality.

FUN FACTS: Amy builds furniture and decor in her spare time and dabbles in designing/decorating tiny homes.  Therefore don't be surprised if Amy says she will DIY for your event...she has the skills and is not afraid to use them!

A Perfectionist on Every Detail 

I understand that you are planning your wedding for the first time, and that you are not an expert and really you just don't know what you don't know!  That is why you hire me, an independent expert wedding planner that is looking out for you!  With thousands of hours of planning weddings and events I am a professional perfectionist when it comes to every detail large and small.  I know all the questions to ask and all the little details, like who is bringing the ice or bottle openers, who is responsible for the trash bags, who will make sure the candles are lit, did we even sign the marriage certificate? ...and the list goes on and on.  My Job is to ask the questions and worry about all the details, so you don't have to! 

FUN FACTS: If you are planning to DIY some of your wedding decor,  Amy offers workshops for you and your bridal party/family/friends to get some of your wedding planning decor items checked off the list. Amy will help gather the supplies and then we will all get together and create, as many hands make light work!  (think: programs, favors, centerpieces, table numbers, photo booth, place cards, etc)
