Sophia & Keith

Using Amanda Holder Events was THE best investment I ever made. Thanks to Amanda and her team (particularly Shea, who I worked most closely with), I was stress-free on wedding day because they had earned my complete trust throughout the planning process. They answered every question I had promptly, kept me on track, thought of every detail, and every vendor they recommended was great. My wedding day was everything I dreamed of and more, and I owe it to them for making that dream come to life. THANK YOU!!!

Brittony & Aaron

Our wedding was so great because of you. Really. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for all that you did for us throughout the planning process and weekend-of to help my family, especially my dad, and me. These are truly once in a lifetime moments I'm so grateful I got with him and it was because of your help and masterful coordination that I was able to. Oh, and we can't forget the last minute dance floor magic! Thank you for pulling this off and making this happen! Doubling the size of the dance floor was really the right call and I'm forever grateful you were able to make this happen. There was so much that was so great. You and Shea. Our team of vendors. You guys were so amazing. Truly. Thank you for making my vision come to life and making this one of the best days of our lives.

Anna & Alfredo

Amanda and team, thank you so so much for coordinating such an amazing day for us! I am having so much fun just remembering the entire day!!

Morgan & Ken

Shea and Team - We can’t thank you enough for your incredible work in making our wedding day absolutely seamless. Your expertise and calming presence allowed us to enjoy every moment without worry. We are grateful for your hard work and dedication in turning our vision into a reality. Our ay would not have been the same without you

Gabrielle & Trenton

Corinne, Mother of the Bride

We hired Amanda Holder Events for my daughter’s wedding in Big Sur this October. From beginning to end, they were flawless. Sarah Anderson was our lead coordinator & she could not have been more responsive, thorough, helpful, and delightful to work with. Planning a destination wedding simply could not have been done without them. The day was absolutely magical in every way…thank you AHE!

Amanda, you and your team from beginning to end were flawless. Responsive, helpful, dependable, thorough, flexible, positive and I could go on and on. We are all just so grateful. The day couldn’t have unfolded the way it did without you! It was perfect! Thank you Sarah!

Griselda & Alexan

It was just a pleasure catching up with you and making our special day so amazing! Thank you just isn’t enough for your incredible work and your team (Mama Holder + Shea). We are so so happy!

Alyssa & Kevin

THE BEST. Truly we would have been lost in the whole planning process without Amanda Holder Events. We chose a venue where we brought in all of the vendors, so there was a lot of coordination and planning and they made it all so so easy for us. The day ran so smoothly and we just had the best time. We did not have to worry about a single thing and were able to just relax with our friends and family! Sarah Anderson was our lead and we could not recommend her enough.

Faye & Clinton

Sarah, thank you SO much for everything you and Amanda Holder Events did to make our wedding come to life. It was truly a dream working with you all, and we appreciate the time and effort you all put in to make the day seamless for us. Thank you also to your team on the ground, for going around and snapping shots of the wedding with the polaroid. We wouldn't have been able to see those candid moments otherwise, and it was a great surprise for us! You truly went above and beyond!

Kimberly & JW

Nadine, Mother of the Bride

Thank you for your amazing job yesterday and all the days leading up to Kimi and JW‘s wedding. You and your team are the absolute best!

Kelly & Mikey

I can't say enough good things about this group. They won Best Wedding Planner for a reason! Sarah. You godsend. She answered every question and made everything so seamless. I didn't have to use my brain ONCE that weekend because the team was so on top of it. So kind, so respectful, so professional. 1000000% recommend this team for your wedding day. You will not regret it.

Brenna & Jake

Amanda & the team’s work, organization, and energy on the wedding day blew us away!!! Amanda knows exactly what she is doing - she is an expert event coordinator, everything from the platform you get access to jointly collaborate with her team, to the patience and kindness her team gave us in each prep meeting, to their transparency and vendor recommendations, to showing up with the biggest smile, the warmest energy, and sharpness on the wedding day! As the bride, I can say I literally have no idea if there were any hiccups that happened on the wedding day with event coordination etc. because her team literally took care of all of that for me. My Mom and the Mother of the Groom adored her and her team. I can not thank her enough for making our wedding day the BEST DAY EVER!

Amanda, we did it - thanks to you and your team’s expertise, logistical magic and poise! We cannot express our gratitude enough for making the last 12+ months so seamless! We are forever grateful to you! THANK YOU for the most magical day anyone could ever hope for on their wedding day! We were truly blessed with the best vendor team & are forever thankful to you.

Kelsey & Danny

Amanda and her team were an absolute dream to work with! Prior to the wedding, their responsiveness & attention to detail were above and beyond. They always had great solutions to any hiccups along the way. During the big day, the organization behind the scenes was seamless. We are so grateful for Amanda and her team, and making our wedding day that much more special.

Tuva & Jacob

We truly had the best experience with Amanda Holder Events; our wedding day went perfectly thanks to them! From the beginning, the team was so organized, helpful, and enthusiastic; they came with great vendor recommendations, which made filling our vendor list easy. We trusted their recommendations and with good reason, every single vendor we had was great. We worked primarily with Sarah A. and she is truly the best; she was so easy to work with and made us feel so comfortable. She was organized, helpful, and kind; we had such a great time working with her and felt like we were in good hands. Big shout-out to the rest of the team that helped us along the way and made sure everything was perfect on our wedding day (Sarah H., Shea, Martha, and Alyssa); the team was truly amazing and we could not have been happier with how everything turned out. We seriously could not have done it without them. Could not recommend Amanda and her team more! You guys rock!

Viola & Kevin

Wow, just wow! Amanda Holder's team did such an incredible job making our dream wedding a reality. My wife & I had already tied the knot in her hometown of Bologna, Italy a year prior, but we wanted to have a wedding reception with all the Americans that couldn't make it out. That meant throwing a giant bash for 160+ attendees with only 3 months of planning! Since it was such a short turnaround, we knew we needed a coordinator to help us reach the finish line in time. During our first meeting, Amanda immediately put our mind at ease. She introduced us to our primary coordinator, Sarah Hayes, and she couldn't have been better! Sarah not only set up a very useful checklist to keep us on track, but she also made herself completely available to answer our never-ending list of questions along the way. Not to mention, she helped us securing vendor contracts as well. And most importantly, she was on-site with her team the day of to ensure that everything ran smoothly. Multiple guests later remarked that they've never been to a wedding where "not one single thing went wrong." We know that this couldn't have been possible without Sarah & Amanda's organization, tireless work ethic, and flawless day-of execution. We could write pages upon pages about why we are so happy, but bottom line: hire AHE and you will not regret it!

Suzi & John

Thanks so much for everything you did! Amanda, your team was so awesome and everything went very smoothly! It was sooo perfect!!! Definitely the wedding of the year!

Anna & Garrett

Terri, Mother of the Groom

Amanda, we can't thank you enough for all the hard work you and your crew did! What an absolutely beautiful day!

Morgan & Cole

We cannot thank you and your whole team enough for all of your help throughout the wedding planning process. When we decided to plan our wedding on the Central Coast, combined with moving to the East Coast, two new jobs, and just about six months time, we knew that we would need quite a bit of help! We are so grateful for your help, flexibility, guidance, and support throughout the whole process. From planning guides, to day-of coordinating, to reminding us of things we hadn't even considered, your team was with us every step of the way. Despite all of the change that were going on in our lives during this time, your team was a constant for us and ensured that our wedding far exceeded anything we could have dreamed of. We appreciate your team more than you know; thank you again!

Angela & Clay

Really enjoyed my time working with Amanda Holder Events. I reached out to her with an expedited timeline and was welcomed with confidence and ease. The team was extremely organized, communicative, patient, kind and experienced. The results were beautiful and felt custom to my taste which I really appreciated. When looking for a wedding planning + design partner - I would highly recommend checking this team out! Now to you, Amanda: I wanted to thank you again for all the help you and your team provided us leading up to our wedding at Higuera Ranch. Your organization, communication, patience, and experience were greatly appreciated! I also wanted to highlight what a pleasure it was to work with Sarah A. on your team - her sweetness along with her skillset really made an impression on us. Thanks again!

Nicole & Colby

THANK YOU for an awesome time, an awesome set up, and a flawless execution! All of our guests were so impressed and loved everything, as did we!!

Amy & Kevin

Thank you so much for all of your help and support in planning this whole thing. We really had such an amazing time and you made our vision and our dream come true. The girls were amazing, too, and we'll never forget that day. Thank you so much for making it all go smoothly and perfectly!

Kristen & Stephen

Organized, efficient, and fun Wedding Planning Team! Amanda & her team were so great to work with at our recent wedding in Los Alamos! We hired her "month of" but she was very helpful answering questions, coming to a site visit, and making recommendations for vendors leading up. Our wedding day could not have been any more perfect. She took care of every detail and it was flawless! We had the best day of our lives and we can't thank Amanda and her team enough for their efforts!

Tianna & Nick

Amanda, I want to thank you so so much for all your help and guidance through the year. Tianna and Nick's wedding day was just perfect. Thanks a million for all your hard work on wedding day!

- Maria, Mother of the Bride

Kirsten & Adam

Highly Recommend! Hiring Amanda & her team was one of the best investments that we made towards our wedding! From the moment we hired her, she was extremely professional, approachable, friendly and insightful. She was always quick to respond and was there to answer any and all questions, big or small. She was beyond helpful and a consistent cool, calm & collected during a time that wasn’t always such. The weekend of our wedding, Amanda and her team made sure myself, the groom and our families had nothing to worry about. Everything went smoothly in big part to them and the other excellent vendors we had, most of which were recommendations of Amanda’s. It is obvious she is loved by her clients and other vendors because she is a lovey person and great at her job. I highly recommend hiring her and her team.

Kasey & Troy

As mother of the bride, I am forever grateful to Amanda Holder and her team for guiding us through this fairytale wedding. Amanda was right there every step of the way. We gave her our ideas and she ran with them giving us so many options and guiding us to the right fit, man did she hit it out of the park! My daughter's wedding was absolutely magical and I truly felt like a guest. Everything ran like clockwork and I didn't have to worry about a thing! Amanda and her team took care of every detail and nothing was missed. She even made sure the new Mr & Mrs had appetizers and drinks during their photos and checked in with us throughout the entire event making sure we had everything we needed. After the wedding, many of our guests contacted us raving about that remarkable day.

- Renee, Mother of the Bride

Kasey & Brandon

Amanda and her team were wonderful to work with! As a couple coming from out of town, she was able to recommend great vendors to us who all helped make the day perfect. It was easy enough for us to explain our vision and they were able to execute on it and make it a reality. When considering hiring a coordinator, Amanda and her team were clearly our top choice, they handled the setup, cleanup, vendor tips, and all of the other details that we probably would have missed without them! Special thanks to Julia who helped me feel so calm & at ease during the rehearsal & on the day of the wedding. We couldn't imagine our wedding day without Amanda and would highly recommend her!

Kaitlin & Douglas

We had a wonderful wedding! Thank you sooooo much!!! You really helped pull the whole day together and it was wonderful working with you, Amanda!!!

Sydney & Derek

Amanda and her team helped us coordinate the PERFECT DAY! She was able to provide suggestions early on in the vendor selection process that helped us stay in budget but have the event we envisioned. Each time my fiancé and I were feeling stressed, one call, text, or email to Amanda allayed our concerns; the planning site she uses helped keep us organized and on track too. She was also able to tactfully manage our wily group without ruffling feathers during the actual wedding. My favorite thing about Amanda and her team was that they took the stress away from my fiancé and I so that we could enjoy each and every moment. Her team made sure that our wedding party and families felt like VIPs all day as well. Amanda was the best decision we made in our planning process (other than getting engaged)!

I cannot thank you enough! You made our wedding absolutely amazing, I can't even get over how good you guys were. That party rocked! Thank you so so so much!

Manny & Christine

A big thank you for all you did to make the day FABULOUS. Everything was exquisite and all the planning and hard work really paid off. All the vendors did their jobs and everyone had a good time. From my personal perspective, I was truly able to relax and enjoy the day knowing that you had it all under control. Thank you!

-- Janine, Mother of the Bride

Danika & Kody

Amanda was amazing! Very professional, easy to work with, great communication! Day of coordination she was awesome she did a great job making sure all our decor was set perfectly, handled all the vendors, and kept our friends and family in line. We cannot recommend her enough! Thank you for making our day amazing.

Jennifer & Casey

I am not sure that I have the words to be able to express my thanks & gratitude towards Amanda & everything that she and her team has done to create & execute my dream wedding experience. Working alongside Amanda was the best decision I could have ever made (aside from saying “yes” to the wedding proposal!). Prior to wedding planning, I was a ball of nerves & stress & I had no vision for the wedding whatsoever. Amanda’s full service package was exactly what I needed. From Day 1, she was calm, professional, & easy to talk to & connect with. She helped build a wedding that matched the personalities & wants of my husband and I, with very little help from the two of us. She knew all of the vendors in the area & clearly had established positive, strong relationships with each of the folks that worked the event. The wedding day itself ran so smoothly. She remembered every little detail & helped everything go exactly as planned. My father thanked her in his speech as even he realized how much of the wedding success was due to her & her team! I can honestly say that there is nothing that I would have changed about the wedding & it was Amanda that made it all possible. The services that she provides are VIP status. Anyone that has the opportunity to work with her should feel incredibly blessed that they are working with the best event planner, period.

Emma & Sean

Amanda and her team were an absolute DREAM! From the get-go, she was on top of everything! I cannot thank her enough for being so supportive and having every single thing under control. A true professional, she is outstanding and is absolutely worth investing in. Thank you so much Amanda!

Rachell & Shea

Amanda was the first member of our wedding team that we added when we began putting our wedding together. She has extensive knowledge of the wedding industry and experience in event planning. She was able to recommend venues and other vendors based on knowing our personality, the vision for our wedding, and also taking our budget in to consideration. She promptly answered any questions we had and was willing to meet with us in person when necessary. Throughout the planning process she put our minds at ease, letting us know that tasks were completed and where we should be focusing next. During the rehearsal she was polite and assertive with our group which was exactly what was required to keep everyone focused, yet having fun. She and her team were a blessing on our wedding day keeping everything running smoothly. We received many compliments from parents, friends, and other family about all aspects of the wedding of which a majority stemmed from the coordination and planning of Amanda and her team.

Thank you for such an amazing wedding! We didn't have to worry about anything. All was taken care of, every detail was planned perfectly and the tent and setup looked so stunning and beautiful.

Tiffani & Erin

Amanda was absolutely awesome, and made our day stress-free! She went above and beyond and we seriously do not know what we would have done without her! Such a blessing.

Cassidy & Christian

Simply the best. Amanda far exceeded our high expectations and pulled off a wedding that many of our friends and family are calling the best ever. She is responsive, organized, calm and has the best vendors I have ever worked with. The food and cake were superior, the florist was fantastic and the DJ was awesome. And they were all so fun, they became like family. I loved the website she set up to help us plan, it was invaluable. The coordinator at the venue we selected had nothing but high praise for Amanda. She stayed within budget and helped keep track of our expenses and her payment reminders were invaluable. She was so amazing the day of the wedding, calm, efficient, kept everyone on time and made sure the bride and the mother of the bride! had food and drinks throughout the evening. We were thrilled with everything. If we could give her 100 stars, we would. HIGHLY recommend Amanda and all of her preferred vendors.

Heather & Jacob

Amanda helped turn our dream vision into reality! Anything we threw at her, asking if it was possible, she would enthusiastically respond "Yes" to. She was a pleasure to work with, very professional and fun, and we truly could not have created the day we had without her!

Samantha & Jeff

Amanda and her team could not have done a better job! We are so thrilled we were able to work with her for our special day. We live in Napa and had our wedding at the Dana Powers House. We had a long distance relationship with Amanda, but she was so responsive and on top of it with us and all our vendors. She checked in with us periodically and guided us to use the best vendors. We wouldn't have changed a thing about our day and it all came together because of Amanda and her team! Highly recommend her services!

Jessica & Jake

Amanda and her team truly pulled together our dream wedding! Everything thing was seamless and I was a stress-free bride on my wedding day. From the beginning she was helpful with listening to my ideas and helping pick the right vendors. Although we went with many of her suggestions, we also picked a few vendors whom she had never worked with before. She was very organized and responsive when pulling all the various vendors together. I’ve had many of them compliment on how easy and kind Amanda was to work with. Amanda and her team were a true blessing to us on our wedding day and we are so thankful for all that they did to make our wedding so fun, beautiful, and memorable!

Brianna & Ian

Amanda was very helpful with all our questions. She supplied many of the small items for the reception, so we didn't have to purchase everything (e.g. table numbers, cake platter, etc.). She handled all of the day-of challenges so we could focus on our special day.

Victoria & Jeff

Amanda and her team were beyond dreamy! I had my vision and Amanda was perfect at letting me make all the decisions, while assisting me in the right direction at forks in the road. Her team made the day absolutely seamless, and I wouldn't change a single thing if I had the chance to do it over again. She's truly THE best.

Ellyn & Hal

You and your team were so amazing to work with. Thank you for giving me peace of mind and allowing us to truly have a care-free wedding.

Katelyn & Jeff

You put together the most beautiful, amazing, and perfect wedding that we could have ever asked for! My parents and I can’t stop talking about how perfect everything was and how smoothly everything ran! My dad also said that people can’t stop talking about how wonderful the wedding was! Thank you so much for EVERYTHING! It was such an honor, privilege, and pleasure to work with you!

Kelsey & Mark

You made our day ABSOLUTELY perfect. Everyone that got to work with you during the weekend had such great things to say! We feel truly lucky to have had you there on our big day! I can’t thank you enough!

Nicole & Ian

Amanda was simply amazing! She kept me calm and collected, not only the day of my wedding, but the days leading up to it, as well! She made sure my glass was full and made our special day go so smoothly! She’s the best!! We are so glad that we chose her to be our coordinator. 🙂

Megan & Eric

Our wedding day was absolutely perfect!!! From the day we met Amanda to start planning, to our big day it was the most enjoyable experience for us. living out of state from our wedding location we were very lucky to have Amanda Holder Events recommend all of our vendors, have seamless communication and take our style to turn it into the most beautiful wedding. We definitely had the best team from florals, catering, photography, music, and so many more thanks to Amanda’s great network in San Luis Obispo!!! We couldn’t have asked for a better experience for our friends and family to celebrate our big day!!!

Cristina & Tom

Amanda helped us develop our vision for a small, intimate San Luis Obispo vineyard destination wedding from the very beginning. After our first meeting, we immediately knew we were in good hands and she had amazing vendor contacts in SLO that proved to be beyond our expectations. Amanda made everything happen on the big day and the event itself exceeding our own expectations. She flawlessly coordinated vendor contracts, set up and break down. We hardly lifted a finger. She was personal, approachable and listened to our needs every step of the way offering suggestions and details we overlooked. Communication via Aisle Planner was a blessing and kept us in sync as we were both working professionals out of town. The day of our wedding, we were calm, relaxed and were able to spend time with our family and friends during the reception without ever worrying about the timeline. Amanda handled it all seamlessly and effortlessly. She is a pro and just a sweet personal lady! Thank you so much Amanda!

Laura & Carla

Amanda is awesome! My partner and I were married at Ocean Point Ranch in Cambria, California. We interviewed Amanda and were so pleased with everything she did for us! She was professional, communicated, on time, added her own special touch and incredibly easy to work with. Although we just met her, she knew exactly what we wanted and made it happen. The small hiccups that occurred went unnoticed and she handled them with ease! She made our day exactly what we wanted. If you are having any type of event in the Cambria or surrounding areas we recommend Amanda! She will make your event exactly what you want and do it in a fun, easy, and professional way.

Kelsey & Jesse

We couldn’t have done it without Amanda…. well we could have, but we would have huge balls of stress for months, our relationships and jobs would have suffered, and our wedding wouldn’t have looked anything like how we envisioned it! (and how it did actually end up turning out!) Amanda handles all of the details you know about, and all of the ones you don’t. She makes you feel calm and on track. I never thought we would end up hiring a wedding planner, but I have zero regrets that we did. Amanda made sure that what we envisioned became reality, which allowed us to focus on what is really important… celebrating the love between each other and celebrating with our friends and family!

Erin & Ethan

Amanda was an absolute dream to work with throughout the wedding planning process! She is organized, patient, kind, and personable. As we planned our out of town wedding, we were initially nervous about finding the right vendors and coordinating everything from a distance, but Amanda pt all of those fears away. She made sure all of our vendors were on the same page and helped my vision become a reality. Day of, she was calm but extremely hard working to make sure we were taken care of and our wedding ran smoothly. We HIGHLY recommend Amanda!

Savannah & Ryan

Amanda is a phenomenal person to have help plan your wedding day. We are seriously still in awe of how perfect everything was and so glad we were lucky enough to work with her! Planning from out of state, it was such a relief knowing she was on top of everything. From the start her experience and professionalism with managing a large event is evident and she leaves no small detail untouched. Amanda is a great listener and collaborator who will help you both determine your priorities and vision for the wedding along with how to best execute it. In the planning process she remains extremely organized and proactive. In addition to coordination, we worked with Amanda on the design as well since that was something we knew would be better left to the pros. We chose to let her really let her work her magic with the overall design and were not disappointed one bit. She took our crazy ideas and ran with them making it better than we could have ever imagined. Especially being out of town, choosing vendors was one thing we were really wary of. However, that was all in vain with the caliber of people she recommended. She has an amazing community of vendors to pull from with the added bonus that they are well experienced working together. Amanda only recommends the best vendors in the area, people who she confidently knows will meet her standard. That said, she is also very aware of working within the boundaries and budget you want. On our wedding day itself, she handled every detail with precision, keeping oversight of every detail and running the show quietly from behind the curtain which enabled us as well as our families to focus on the event. More than anything, Amanda was a delight to work with! She is a people person with an approachable demeanor that she extends to everyone in attendance. It was said more than once that we wished we lived closer to be able to hang out again! We loved working with Amanda and absolutely recommend her for all your wedding needs!

Paula & Rich

Amanda was truly a pleasure to deal with and when it was “game time” on the day of the wedding, she crushed it, which was not an easy job with my beautiful bride – thank you Amanda for everything you did, as you made the day unforgettable!

Ashley & Dal

We couldn’t have done it without Amanda…. well we could have, but we would have huge balls of stress for months, our relationships and jobs would have suffered, and our wedding wouldn’t have looked anything like how we envisioned it!

Devon & Evan

Amanda was a true professional! She had the exact balance we were looking for in a professional—someone who can get the job done with no-nonsense but also help gently guide us through this experience that was so new to us. She was a great resource throughout our entire engagement but it was the last 3 months (and wedding of course) where we got her more involved that we felt like everything she touched was TAKEN CARE OF. It was nice because as you get closer to the wedding, so many things really slip your mind and she didn’t forget about anything. The week before our wedding she learned from the caterer that we’d need to rent all the chafing dishes and food prep equipment (this was never mentioned in several conversations or our walk through) and she completely handled the additional order (she had to use a second rental company because the company we were using didn’t have this equipment). I still don’t even know exactly what was ordered—but i certainly didn’t care at that point. She even picked up the equipment the day of the rehearsal so we didn’t incur a second delivery fee. That was 100% not her responsibility and we were so grateful. My ONLY regret was not bringing her on board to plan our entire wedding weekend start to finish. She definitely helped but my husband and I wanted to be very involved. Mistake. Wish I had just hired her for EVERYTHING.

Kalyn & Rob

Amanda did a great job planning our wedding! She made the whole process enjoyable, easy and stress free! We received many compliments from our friends and family on how efficiently and effectively Amanda got things done while still being a very kind and enjoyable person to be around. Everything at our wedding turned out exactly how we had hoped and everyone had a great time.

Amanda & Sean

Amanda was an absolute joy to work with. She listened to what we expected and followed through, even with last minute changes, AMANDA was on top of everything every step of the way. My daughter’s wedding went smoothly and she kept us to our timeline.
- Denise, Mother of the Bride

Kaitlin & Frank

Amanda was our Full Service wedding “producer” for our April 15th wedding at Standing Sun Winery in Buellton. My husband’s family is from LA and mine is back in the midwest, so without them nearby to help with planning, Amanda had especially big shoes to fill. She was one of my first calls when we got engaged because I’d known her for several years professionally as an event planner, and I wanted to learn more about her wedding services. I thought I knew how valuable a wedding coordinator was going to be, but she exceeded our expectations! It was like she read my mind throughout the planning–every time I sent her a question about something she would reply with exactly the information I needed because she had already gathered it and was on to the next item. I don’t know how she managed to work on so many things at once, and our wedding being in Santa Barbara County with vendors from Paso Robles to Santa Ynez was a little more than her average local San Luis Obispo affair. Whether it was exploring vendor options or locking them in, Amanda was by our side. My mom said that at first she thought getting a coordinator for the wedding was a bit excessive, but once she saw how everything was coming together she knew it was the best decision we made. That’s a pretty huge compliment from any mother of the bride, but especially from mine! The day was absolutely more than we could have imagined! A month later and we are both still glowing, and getting so many compliments about it from our friends. I remember pulling up to the winery and seeing everything set up–the caterer cooking, the tents and decor beautifully arranged, the mariachi band playing, guests having fun from the moment they arrived. Everything we shared with Amanda, the feeling we wanted at our wedding (a fun and festive atmosphere), the ease for our families, guests, vendors, and ourselves–it was perfect! We couldn’t have asked for more. Thank you, Amanda! It was truly the best day of our lives.

Carrie & Jed

I hired Amanda just a couple months before my wedding was going to take place. Not only did she take on a jumbled mess that I had put together, but she took that mess and made the most beautiful wedding I could have ever imagined. She really listened to my vision and put it all together, beautifully. Amanda helped with organizing, setting up, managing the vendors, cleaning up, AND putting my mind at ease. Not only did she have to deal with me being a bride, but she had to keep me (a hormonal mom-to-be) at ease! Her soothing voice and meticulous planning made her the most PERFECT fit for our big day. I am beyond thankful for her services and would recommend her time and time again. We will definitely be booking her for our baby shower and many events to come.

Katie & Austin

We had the pleasure of working with Amanda in October 2015 for our 85 guest wedding at See Canyon Fruit Ranch. Amanda was our wedding coordinator and the experience was fantastic. Our original plans for the wedding did not include a wedding coordinator but as we did more planning and discussion we decided to hire one to help make the event run as smoothly as possible. This was a great decision in retrospect and hiring Amanda and her team was money well spent. From the initial meeting with her before the event all the way up through the big day she was very pleasant, responsive, and kept everything under control and running smoothly in an almost effortless way. We spent a lot of time planning the big day ourselves but when it came down to the actual flow and details of the day Amanda was the one who made it run so well that we were able to enjoy the event from beginning to end. She also had a small team of assistants that were great and added a lot of support to the day’s events. As the person we interacted with the most for the wedding Amanda was always pleasant and prepared. She created a clear timeline for the big day that kept us on track. This was a great help. She handled questions and issues from vendors, guests, and us quickly and easily. The whole day went off without a hitch and everyone had a great time. I think we were expecting to be somewhat stressed the entire time but, amazingly, we were able to relax and enjoy it, and I think a lot of that is a direct result of her work. Highly recommended.

Celia & Ryan

Amanda was a great coordinator! We really enjoyed working with her. From the first consultation, Amanda was professional and I knew I could trust her to coordinate our wedding. Our wedding was a destination wedding for us and having her know the area and local vendors was great! It really helped me a lot. The day of the wedding she not only kept up with her professionalism but she brought our vision to life and we couldn’t have been happier with how everything turned out. Amanda truly loves what she does and you can tell she enjoys making couples happy on their special day; it shows in her genuine attitude and enthusiasm.

Autumn & Alex

I never thought I needed a wedding planner. I mean I love planning and coming up with ideas and honestly I was on a budget and thought wedding planners were only for the rich, first time brides with no regard to what they spend. That being said, my florist gave me good vibes so I scheduled a meeting with Amanda. She is probably one of the sweetest women I have ever met. We met over wine and talked and talked. She gave me her background and was seriously impressive. I could tell she was just the perfect person to help me. We hired her on the spot. When you are a bride you tend to get a little coo-coo. Even when things are running smoothly you just get stressed. Amanda has a calmness about her that you need to have on your wedding day. She is extremely organized, passionate, positive upbeat and gets the job done. But her calmness and getting you to calm down was the single most cherished quality I can say. She always had an answer and was so eager to help. Nothing phased her and she always had a smile on her face. I put all my trust in her to take my vision and put It in to fruition. Not only did she bring it to life, but she made it even better than I ever could have imagined. The venue was perfect and I cried all the way down the aisle. Once the ceremony was over it was time to breathe and party and Amanda was always there with a drink to hand me or directions to do what was next. It went as smoothly as it could have possibly gone. Everything was perfect, everyone had fun and even my venue staff and management said she was the “BEST” coordinator that they had ever had and they have been doing weddings for years. It was definitely worth every penny and exceeded our expectations in every way. I hope this will help you choose Amanda to plan your wedding. You will not be disappointed!

Devon & George

Amanda is a true professional and a master of her craft. We were so lucky to have her services throughout the pre-planning, planning and execution of our special day. We trusted her completely and she generated our vision with grace, beauty, class and exceeded our expectations. Amanda went above and beyond anything we could have hoped for.

- Devon

 

Excellent experience. Amanda and her team were organized and prepared and provided amazing support. She guided us along a complex path from beginning concept to wedding day support. The Wedding Closer is calm, efficient, skilled, experienced and well-connected; all things that are a must in a wedding planner. The wedding went off flawlessly. Family and guests continue to comment on how well things were run and how smooth the event was.

Chelsea & Erik

Amanda was a God-send for our wedding! We previously booked with another wedding coordinator, but was not receiving timely responses and it was making us very nervous. We mad the decision to look elsewhere and found Amanda. From our first conversation on the phone it just felt like it was meant to be. She is everything you need in a wedding coordinator: organized, responsive, flexible, positive and will take control when needed. She put my mind at ease over so many little details and let me text her with anything on my mind, which was very helpful! I feel like it’s very rare that you hear someone say their wedding day had nothing go wrong, but we can absolutely say that, thanks to Amanda. Everything was executed to perfection and Amanda kept the whole night moving smoothLy. Hiring Amanda was the right choice and she was a priceless member of our team!

Kelly & Mark

Amanda was my wedding coordinator for my wedding on May 2nd at La Cuesta Ranch in SLO and was absolutely amazing! She was so helpful and responsive throughout the entire planning process, kept us on track, answered all of our questions, and helped me pick vendors (and got me discounts on one!). She was also very knowledgeable on the venue which helped tremendously. Also, her assistant the day of the wedding was awesome, so helpful with anything and everything we needed. I truly had the perfect wedding, all thanks to Amanda. We really couldn’t have pulled it off without her! She is worth every penny, highly recommended!

Alisha & Keith

Amanda was absolutely amazing! She went above and beyond what I expected from a wedding coordinator. She was extremely organized and always on top of things. As soon as I hired her, I immediately felt a huge weight off my shoulders. Amanda took care of everything down to the tiniest detail and our wedding could not have gone any smoother. She made sure everything happened when it was supposed to and was always there to make sure I had everything I needed. Our wedding was fabulous and I know it’s in large part thanks to Amanda. I do not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding coordinator!

Brenda & Gabe

We hired Amanda after our wedding planner was unable to finish our wedding. Amanda stepped right in and made me feel comfortable about everything that needed to get done for our wedding. She was so on top of it. She made herself available to my vendors and me and she was incredibly organized, prompt and has great communication skills. I feel really lucky that we were able to hire Amanda. She did an amazing job and she is so personable. There is no one better to help you create your very special day.

Allyson & Cody

Amanda, what can I say except we are eternally grateful to your team!! We had the absolute best day! Thank you thank you, thank you!!

Megan & Andrew

We hired Amanda & her team as our coordinators, but they were SO much more than that. They were truly a partner to us throughout our two year engagement - checking in on our planning progress through our online portal & Zoom calls, giving us so many incredible resources to get us started (check lists, timeline templates, vendor contacts, just to name a few!) and always being quick to respond to our questions and share their recommendations / opinions. It was really important to us that our friends & family got to enjoy the day, so we were very grateful that we could lean on Amanda, Sarah & Shea to handle all of the day-of logistics. They did an incredible job running the show - coordinating with all of the other vendors we had on-site, setting up all of our personal decor & details, and keeping the timeline running smoothly as the night went on.

Brittany & Frank

Thank you for everything!!! The wedding was so beautiful! You and your team did an absolutely amazing job!

- Lisa, Mother of the Groom

Daniella & Matthew

We can’t thank you enough for the fabulous three-day wedding bliss!!! It was extremely over the top and such a well-organized machine you and your squad are! Kind, friendly, professional and knows how to pull off events! The best!!!

- Jo-Anne, Mother of the Bride

Dena & Alan

AHE for the Win! The AHE team won us over from the first Zoom meet & greet call. Amanda is such a pro and set us up for success with vendor recommendations and tools to make wedding planning so much easier. Hannah was our girl for the wedding weekend and month-of coordination. She had such a great spirit and sense of humor - exactly what we needed when things got stressful.

Jenna & Nick

Amanda, thank you to you and your team for all your help in planning and implementing the rehearsal dinner (and the whole wedding weekend!) for Jenna and Nick!

- Susie, Mother of the Groom

Amy & Marcus

Amazing Team! Amanda and her team are absolutely amazing! From beginning to end they were organized, enthusiastic, and helpful. They provided great recommendations to capture our wedding day dreams and ensured that our wedding day ran smoothly! Shea was our day of lead and she was incredible. Her and the rest of the team handled any issues so calmly and professionally. During planning, every vendor I contacted (and even individuals in the industry I met by chance) noted that I was in good hands with Amanda. They have a great reputation in the area and it is so well deserved! I can go on and on about how great this team is. I had my ideal wedding day and couldn't have done it without them!

Arika & Matt

Friendly & Helpful Coordination Team! We had a multi-day wedding weekend, and AHE was super helpful in bringing our plans to life. As a wedding coordinator myself, I had a lot of details built into our weekend, and their team helped manage the behind-the-scenes movements wonderfully. From my first call with Amanda, I knew she was the right choice. She was kind, thoughtful, and I could tell by her answers to my questions that she brought a great deal of experience. It was a dream come true, and we truly could not have done it without you all. You’re amazing! I was very happy with our choice to use AHE!

Miryem & Michael

Amazing team! I cannot say enough good things about Amanda and the whole AHE team. I was a nervous planner and liked to double and triple check everything, and the ladies always responded promptly, helped with any questions or needs, helped me find any vendors I still needed to lock down, gave their honest opinions when I really needed it, and most of all they made the wedding day run so so smooth. If you are debating, I would say the AHE team is worth every dollar spent. Their organization, communication, and planning tools make everything so easy so that the planning stress never becomes too much. We are so so grateful to them for making our wedding day amazing!

Shannon & Stephan

Everything was so beyond perfect; you were so amazing! I can’t believe how great your team was!!! Thank you, Amanda Holder Events!!!

Aleigh & Blake

Oh my goodness Amanda!! Everything was just perfect this weekend! Wow - what memories! You and your team are absolutely amazing!!!

- Joanne, Mother of the Bride

Stephanie & Jason

Shea and the rest of the team were honestly a dream come true. They met & exceeded every possible expectation for the day. It brings tears to my eyes thinking about it again!!! Hiring AHE was the best decision we made (besides marrying each other) haha. Cannot send enough thanks and praise!!!!!

Olivia & David

Thank you for holding our hands throughout this wild journey that is wedding planning! We appreciate your expertise in making our special day unforgettable!

Julia & Alec

Excellent Service! The whole planning process, due to the aid of the AHE team, went so smoothly. The day of the wedding was flawless and the incredible team of Shea, Martha, Mia and Sierra knocked it out of the park. The groom and I didn't have to worry about a single thing. They were professional & calm in addition to being so willing to help in whatever way they could whenever they could. Working with such a competent team who has your back is so important on a day that is as special as your wedding. I would certainly recommend AHE to anyone who is looking for a wedding planner and/or coordinator.

Anna & John

Couldn't have done it without Amanda and her team! We can't thank Amanda and her team enough for everything they did to make our wedding day so incredible. My husband and I were able to completely relax and enjoy our day because we knew that Amanda had everything under control. We had some last minute hiccups, and all were solved before they ever became a "problem." Between turning our vision into reality, coordinating with vendors and helping the weekend-of, they were perfect. Thank you!

Melody & Jake

The best make-up wedding ever! Amanda Holder's team went above and beyond to make our wedding the most amazing. As people who work in hospitality, we tend to be extremely nit-picky and there was not one detail she & her team missed. It was a beautiful and fulfilling day made seamless by Amanda and her staff. We love you ladies!

Katie & Isaiah

Amanda Holder Events, thank you so much for all the time you put in to make our wedding day so special! We truly couldn’t have done it without you or your amazing team.- Diana, Mother of the Bride

Kelli & Steven

Amanda & her team are THE ABSOLUTE BEST! Not only is Amanda the sweetest, most calmest human being to ever live, her team is attentive, detail-oriented, and focused. They helped to make our day run smoother than we could have ever imagined. Wedding planning during a pandemic was not always easy, but the AHE team always put my mind at ease. Amanda is SO GREAT with communication! She replies quickly & completely, and answered all questions throughout the wedding planning process. Although I hired Amanda for wedding management as a day-of coordinator at my venue, she did SO MUCH MORE. She truly has a gift of not just wedding planning, but with people. And a fun bonus, Amanda's mom works on the team & is such a joy to be around: we all hit it off right away. Don't walk... RUN to hire Amanda. She's the best & made my dream wedding a reality! "Thank You" doesn't seem like enough, but THANK YOU AMANDA & TEAM! My husband & I will forever be grateful for all you did. Oh, and she even drove a 1969 Camaro down the hill at a winery so my husband & I could enjoy the sunset a little longer - talk about above & beyond. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Jill & Nate

We chose Amanda Holder Events, as they were recommended by our venue, Croad Vineyards in Paso Robles. We chose the base wedding management so they could work with us throughout the planning process. The information provided was useful in guiding us. Their web-based planning tool really helped keep us all organized and on the same page. The day of the wedding, four planners were there to assist with all our needs. This allowed the wedding party to enjoy the day and know everything was handled.

- Chris, Mother of the Bride

Natasha & Grant

Amanda and her team were extremely helpful. I sent her all my contracts leading up to our wedding and she was very responsive, and helped us stay on track for everything. Wedding weekend, she had a team of 4-5 people who helped keep everything moving smoothly. I highly recommend using her; she's amazing!

Amanda & Timothy

We were so lucky that early in our search we chose Amanda Holder as our wedding planner. We interviewed 5 planners, and she was the most professional, light-hearted, and experienced planner we spoke to, as well as having a team of warm and caring individuals. Amanda brings the perfect mix of a calming, in-control attitude, as well as meticulous detailed project management. Amanda and her team helped us plan a fairly large 3-day weekend wedding for 175 guests with lots of add-ons and moving pieces. She helped us select vendors, negotiate contracts, and give feedback on our plans, letting us drive, but providing helpful guidance and insight. When the inevitable things went wrong (not enough chairs from our rental co. or last minute changes to the menu), she knew exactly what to do, who to call, and how to make it all happen in the lowest stress way possible for us. On the day of the wedding, she had a full on posse of 10 planners handling every little detail in shifts, so that we could really relax and enjoy our special day. We are so thankful for Amanda Holder and we don't know how we could have done it without her. If we could give her more than 5 stars, we would!!! - Bridget, Mother of the Bride

Jeanne & Nicholas

Thank you so much. Everything was perfect! The families and guests all raved about the wedding. The day of the wedding all we had to do was show up; your team did the rest.

- Joe, Father of the Bride

Ashley & Jake

Absolutely Amazing! Amanda and her team were absolutely amazing! We did not have to worry about a single item on the day of our wedding and made the day flow flawlessly. They checked on us throughout the day to make sure we were happy at all times. Leading up to our wedding, Amanda was very responsive and always took care of all the tasks she said she would and more. We are so happy that we worked with Amanda and her team.

Rachel & Ben

LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. Amanda, you and your team are amazing!! It was truly such a joy to know that you were all there to make the day EPIC!

- Michele, Mother of the Bride

Jasmine & Zachary

Kept Me Calm & Got Shit Done. Amanda & her team were very professional & responsive throughout the entire process. They were also so much fun to work & a pure joy to be around on my wedding day, which is a big deal considering your planner is with you through the most intimate moments. Of course, a couple of things didn’t go as planned due to the usual madness that comes with a wedding – but Amanda was always on it, fixed the problem, & assured it would be taken care of. She really kept me calm and got shit done.

Nicky & James

Fairytale wedding! Amanda and her team were such an integral part of our wedding weekend. They made every detail and dream of ours a reality. I would not have been able to put together all of my ideas the way Amanda & her team did. We are so grateful for everything that you all did to make our wedding a dream come true!

Erin & Nick

Best Planner Ever :) If you are thinking about planning a wedding on the Central Coast without a planner, you should probably reconsider. Our wedding day ended up having 14 different vendors and I don’t think I could have handled it very well without Amanda Holder Events. Amanda and her team really brought all the details together for our wedding day beautifully. Amanda was always quick to respond to our questions & quick to take action when needed. She provided a list of vendors that she recommended and helped us narrow it down and choose the best fit for our day. Amanda is so professional and very experienced I never felt stressed during the wedding planning process. On the wedding day her team made sure that my husband and I had our favorite drinks in our hands & insisted that we took some time to eat all of the great food we picked. Our Wedding Day was seamless thanks to her team keeping us on track and handling any issues that popped up. I cannot recommend Amanda enough!

Mandy & Rieff

We can't thank you enough for all of the time and effort you put into our wedding. The entire weekend was more than we could have dreamed of thanks to you and your amazing staff. Be well!

Marnee & Victor

Amanda, your help was beyond! I have to say, wedding planning is quite stressful during a pandemic and you made it seamless. Victor and I appreciate your help and communication SO much! You were calm, collected, and professional, gave us the reassurance we needed, as well as helped us with with our vendor team. Your energy is great--you were an amazing support the day of our wedding. I trusted you to get the job done and you did, flawlessly. Amanda is a pleasure to work with and I recommend her to anyone needing a coordinator. You are a delight; we’d like to toast with you! :) Thank you for everything.

Alyssa & Max

Amanda Holder and her team were very helpful in this stressful time and made our wedding an absolute dream come true!

Hannah & Wyatt

Amanda has great attention to detail, and great knowledge of all wedding things! She and her team were an absolute pleasure to work with. My wedding day ran so smoothly! They handled things beautifully!

Molly & Gaspare

Do Yourself A Favor and Hire Amanda! The best decision we made regarding our wedding was hiring Amanda and her team. They were there throughout the entire planning process from choosing other vendors to finalizing our seating chart. On our wedding day, they were there to ensure that everything went off without a hitch and that we had the most amazing day possible (which we did)! I cannot express how wonderful Amanda Holder Events was to work with. I would plan a wedding all over again if it meant I could work with them. I truly felt that they supported us and were invested in our happiness. Our perfect wedding day only happened because of Amanda Holder Events. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Kim & Brian

Picked a Planner who knows their stuff! We couldn't have been happier with Amanda and her team. Professional, responsive and experienced, which allowed us to enjoy our special day that could not have been better!

Nicole & Colby

THANK YOU for an awesome time, an awesome set up, and a flawless execution! All of our guests were so impressed and loved everything, as did we!!

Tianna & Nick

Amanda, I want to thank you so so much for all your help and guidance throughout the year. Tianna and Nick's wedding day was just perfect. Thanks a million for all your hard work on wedding day!

- Maria, Mother of the Bride

Kasey & Brandon

Hiring Amanda was the smartest decision we made! Not only is she incredibly talented at what she does, she is also an absolute blast to be around. Her entire team is attentive, professional, and the best at what they do. Amanda and her team knew the best vendors for what we wanted and organized everyone effortlessly, 10/10 would recommend!

Sydney & Derek

Amanda and her team helped us coordinate the PERFECT DAY! She was able to provide suggestions early on in the vendor selection process that helped us stay in budget but have the event we envisioned. Each time my fiancé and I were feeling stressed, one call, text, or email to Amanda allayed our concerns; the planning site she uses helped keep us organized and on track too. She was also able to tactfully manage our wily group without ruffling feathers during the actual wedding. My favorite thing about Amanda and her team was that they took the stress away from my fiancé and I so that we could enjoy each and every moment. Her team made sure that our wedding party and families felt like VIPs all day as well. Amanda was the best decision we made in our planning process (other than getting engaged, of course)!

Danika & Kody

Amanda was amazing! Very professional, easy to work with, great communication! Day of coordination she was awesome she did a great job making sure all our decor was set perfectly, handled all the vendors, and kept our friends and family in line. We cannot recommend her enough! Thank you for making our day absolutely amazing.

I cannot thank you enough! You made our wedding absolutely amazing, I can't even get over how good you guys were. That party rocked! Thank you so so so much!

Tiffani & Erin

Amanda was absolutely awesome, and made our day stress-free! She went above and beyond and we seriously do not know what we would have done without her! She's just such a blessing.

Samantha & Jeff

Amanda and her team could not have done a better job! We are so thrilled we were able to work with her for our special day. We live in Napa and had our wedding at the Dana Powers House. We had a long distance relationship with Amanda, but she was so responsive and on top of it with us and all our vendors. She checked in with us periodically and guided us to use the best vendors. We wouldn't have changed a thing about our day and it all came together because of Amanda and her team! Highly recommend her services!

Victoria & Jeff

Amanda and her team were beyond dreamy! I had my vision and Amanda was perfect at letting me make all the decisions, while assisting me in the right direction at forks in the road. Her team made the day absolutely seamless, and I wouldn't change a single thing if I had the chance to do it over again. She's truly THE best.

Kelsey & Mark

You made our day ABSOLUTELY perfect. Everyone that got to work with you during the weekend had such great things to say! We feel truly lucky to have had you there on our big day! I really can’t thank you enough!

Cristina & Tom

Amanda helped us develop our vision for a small, intimate San Luis Obispo vineyard destination wedding from the very beginning. After our first meeting, we immediately knew we were in good hands and she had amazing vendor contacts in SLO that proved to be beyond our expectations. Amanda made everything happen on the big day and the event itself exceeding our own expectations. She flawlessly coordinated vendor contracts, set up and break down. We hardly lifted a finger. She was personal, approachable and listened to our needs every step of the way offering suggestions and details we overlooked. Communication via Aisle Planner was a blessing and kept us in sync as we were both working professionals out of town. The day of our wedding, we were calm, relaxed and were able to spend time with our family and friends during the reception without ever worrying about the timeline. Amanda handled it all seamlessly and effortlessly. She is a pro and just a sweet personal lady! Thank you so much Amanda!

Erin & Ethan

Amanda was an absolute dream to work with throughout the wedding planning process! She is organized, patient, kind, and personable. As we planned our out of town wedding, we were initially nervous about finding the right vendors and coordinating everything from a distance, but Amanda put all of those fears away. She made sure all of our vendors were on the same page and helped my vision become a reality. Day of, she was calm but extremely hard working to make sure we were taken care of and our wedding ran smoothly. We HIGHLY recommend Amanda!

Ashley & Dal

After reaching out to a few vendors, we had a call with Amanda to discuss our wedding planning needs. We weren't looking for a full planner, as we were having a relatively small wedding. Amanda's services were great, as we had the option to have full planning (vendor selection, etc.), or partial, which included vendor recommendations and support the day of the wedding. We got to meet Amanda in person to discuss our needs, and we knew we had to hire her. Our wedding was taking place about 3 hours from our home in Paso Robles, CA, and we were unfamiliar with vendors in the area. Amanda was able to provide 2-3 recommendations for each vendor, based on our style, budget, etc. She was very responsive to e-mails, and was really great at easing my nerves as the wedding drew near. Amanda set us up through a planning site, which was a huge help. If we had issues reaching a vendor, Amanda stepped in and resolved quickly. The day before and day of the wedding, she was absolutely phenomenal. I didn't have to worry about a thing, not because I asked her about how things were going, but because I just knew everything would go well. We had a few members of the wedding party that were a bit rogue, but she handled it very well. She was absolute perfection the day of my wedding and during the ceremony/reception (I believe she was the one who got each glass of wine I consumed, asking if I was doing OK, etc.). Her vendor recommendations, assistance prior and amazing support during our special day was everything we hoped it would be. We paid for the partial service, but I feel that we go so much more. I highly, highly recommend her and only hope to be able to cross paths with her again for another event.

Melissa & Ryan

Amanda did a great job planning our wedding! She made the whole process enjoyable, easy and stress free! We received many compliments from our friends and family on how efficiently and effectively Amanda got things done while still being a very kind and enjoyable person to be around. Everything at our wedding turned out exactly how we had hoped and everyone had a great time.

Carrie & Jed

I hired Amanda just a couple months before my wedding was going to take place. Not only did she take on a jumbled mess that I had put together, but she took that mess and made the most beautiful wedding I could have ever imagined. She really listened to my vision and put it all together, beautifully. Amanda helped with organizing, setting up, managing the vendors, cleaning up, AND putting my mind at ease. Not only did she have to deal with me being a bride, but she had to keep me (a hormonal mom-to-be) at ease! Her soothing voice and meticulous planning made her the most PERFECT fit for our big day. I am beyond thankful for her services and would recommend her time and time again. We will definitely be booking her for our baby shower and many events to come.

Celia & Ryan

Amanda was a great coordinator! We really enjoyed working with her. From the first consultation, Amanda was professional and I knew I could trust her to coordinate our wedding.

The AHE team worked so hard to make our dream wedding a reality, and they knocked it out of the park. The team was professional, communicative, and positive throughout the planning process and went above and beyond to help us put together a wedding weekend that exceeded all our expectations. The wedding itself was a dream, we were thrilled with all our vendors, and the team worked tirelessly behind the scenes to keep things moving as planned so we had plenty of time to enjoy our day. Highly recommend the AHE team! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Crystal & Spencer

We couldn’t have asked for a better team to trust to ensure our wedding weekend went smoothly. From the rehearsal to the day-of, everything was taken care of. We will forever be grateful for AHE and her team. They made us feel so special and truly cared for us from the first call to the end of our wedding night. Our day was perfect, and our guests also raved about how perfect the day was and it wouldn’t have been possible without Sarah, and the rest of the team on site. Thanks for working with all the vendors we had and all you did! Forever grateful.

Parker & Colby

Your team was amazing!!! Couldn’t have done it without them! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Theresa & Mikhail

Amanda Holder & Team exceeded every expectation! Our wedding went off without a hitch because of the excellent coordination services provided by Amanda Holder and her team. Amanda stepped in to help as soon as we decided to hire her over a year before our wedding to be our day-of coordinator and checked in with us every month till the big day. She was there every step of the way to offer guidance, expertise, and support throughout our wedding planning experience. When our wedding weekend arrived, Amanda and her team helped ensure everyone including vendors was on-time, knew where to set-up, and checked in with us throughout the events (rehearsal, welcome reception, rehearsal dinner & wedding day-of coordination) to ensure my now husband and I were taken care of. I would highly recommend Amanda time and time again for any couple looking for an expert wedding coordinator to ensure a smooth and successful wedding day!

Anneke & Nick

Thank you so much for making Anneke and Nick’s wedding such a beautiful celebration. We sincerely appreciate all your hard work!

- Alan & Becca, Parents of the Bride

Megan & John

Thank you so much to everyone who helped make our day run so smoothly. Thank you for your support throughout the planning, and for everything you’ve done to finalize the details in the last few weeks. We are so thankful to have had your help in starting our new “married” chapter of life. You all are amazing!

Abby & Peter

Everything ran smoothly, and we were really happy with how everything went with all the vendors! I thought your team did such a good job; the day went more smoothly than I could have imagined. There were a few things that I didn't give direction on (e.g. the polaroid camera, the glow sticks, etc.) and I loved how proactive your team was in figuring out the right way to purpose everything we had. Overall I loved how everything went and was super happy with everything! Nothing but amazing things to say about your team! Again thanks so much, seriously so sad everything is over and I have no more wedding details to think about anymore.

Christina & Brian

Amanda, thank you for making our wedding so magical. I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day. Everyone felt the love and had such a great time! Please send big hugs to the whole team from us!

Sevasti & Rico

Best Wedding Planners in California! Working with Amanda, Hannah, and the whole team at Amanda Holder Events was like working with family. We knew from the first call that they were the team for us; choosing them to support us in planning our wedding weekend was by far the best choice we made in planning our wedding. We had a three day wedding weekend, and the entire time was the most beautiful, organized, and special weekend of our lives. Amanda and her team were with us every step of the way throughout the planning process. Whenever we spoke with them, we felt like we were the only clients they had. They made us feel so special, they were consistently kind, and went out of their way to make sure we had the best vendors, design, and experience a couple could ask for. We love Amanda and Hannah, they are truly family now.

Lauren & Roger

Amanda, we wanted to thank you for the incredible job you did. We had the most incredible day and the best thing we ever did throughout the entire process was hire you. Endless thanks!!!

Alicia & Cole

Amanda’s team helped make our wedding experience perfect! Amanda’s team helped us plan our wedding this past year and we highly recommend their service. They allowed us to enjoy the wedding planning process without stressing that things were falling through the cracks, and helped us make informed decisions every step of the way. In addition they made sure everything went to plan on the day of, and interfaced with all of the vendors so we were able to be fully present and enjoy our wedding day. We are so appreciative for everything Amanda’s team did to make our wedding experience perfect.

Caroline & Scotty

A dream to work with! Amanda Holder and her team are truly the best at what they do. The planning process with Amanda was made very easy. She did almost all of the leg work for us. Whenever we even started to feel the least bit stressed, Amanda would calm our worries & show us everything was on schedule. During the event itself, Amanda's team were truly incredible. As the Bride & Groom, we never had to lift a finger or make any decisions on our special day (special shoutout to Hannah & Martha for keeping our drink glasses full and every need catered to)! Every question we had was answered, and I’m sure there was much more going on behind the scenes that we never even saw. The weekend was everything we wanted and more! Although I know Amanda & her team work on weddings nearly every weekend, she never, ever treated us like we were "just another wedding" on her schedule. We always had her full attention and she truly cared about putting on our special day. I could not recommend her more highly. Simply wonderful to work with.

Ally & Ben

We laughed, we cried, and most importantly we didn’t have to worry about any of the coordination details! You & your crew were SO incredible. Thank you so so so much for everything. You all rolled with the punches with so much grace & a great sense of humor. You really made Ben, our guests, and me feel special & supported throughout the weekend (and you even laughed at my jokes!). The vendors we worked with all said that you were the best and they were certainly right! Your service was compassionate, personal, warm, gentle, organized, professional, nonjudgmental, & incredibly effective. Throughout the whole weekend, I was able to focus on the important stuff while y'all handled all of the finer details AND made me feel so special! My husband, our families & friends, and I were able to have the most hilarious, fun, carefree, and beautifully spiritually important time of our lives because of you & your team. You were the integral piece in bringing our vision to life and I cannot thank you enough for making it happen.

Holly & Trent

Top-notch service. I loved working with Amanda and her team! Super responsive and they provided so many resources to keep the planning process and day-of on-track. Every vendor I talked to was so excited to hear we were using Amanda Holder and it is evident why the team has such a great reputation. Totally deserved and we had a wedding truly beyond our expectations.

Taylor & Joe

The Best Planning Team! We can't say enough positive things about Amanda & her team. They were the most valued vendor that we worked with for our wedding. Amanda was responsive, organized, extremely knowledgable, and brought a sense of calmness to the craziness of planning. From the months leading up to the wedding, all the way through the morning after, we could count on them to ensure everything was run smoothly. Would work with them again in a heartbeat.

Katelyn & John

I wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for making all of my wedding dreams come true! The entire day couldn't have been more perfect and everything about the weekend exceeded my expectations! Everything was so beautiful and truly perfect. I appreciate all of the hard work and coordinating you and your teams did for our big day - you guys are the best!

Brooke & Justin

Dream come true! As a layperson, we don’t know what we don’t know. Amanda & her team helped us realize the most magical experience for our daughter, Brooke and her wedding to Justin. There are so many details I would’ve never known I was missing, and they helped pull everything together, so that we could take a step back, feel the love and enjoy all our family & friends who came to celebrate with us. As I’m writing this, I'm savoring what a beautiful experience it was. This team orchestrated everything from soup to nuts, coordinating rentals & guiding us to the proper vendors. Brooke had the most amazing day. Oh goodness, so many details; we couldn’t have done it without you and your amazing team! We loved everything! Everyone went above & beyond our expectations. It was beyond our wildest dreams! Thank you for every step of your help with this family milestone!

- Diana, Mother of the Bride

Lauren & Jake

Amanda and her team were absolutely fantastic. The wedding day and all the days prior to the wedding were so smooth, which allowed us to enjoy the process of planning and having a wedding. The day-of care and attentiveness was priceless. I would recommend Amanda and her team to anyone having a wedding. Her team was truly incredible and without them our wedding wouldn’t have been as perfect and seamless. Thank you, thank you!!!

Kerry & Scott

Wanted to thank you (and the entire team) for such a seamless and beautiful wedding. I know there's so much that goes into the day and making sure it all goes accordingly and it truly did. And most importantly - I didn't ever have to think about the schedule or when things needed to be done. I instead was able to enjoy time with all my friends, family, and new husband. Thank you again!

Jenn & Terra

Amanda and her Dream Team (as we have dubbed them) helped make our wedding day more magical than we could have ever imagined! They are truly the BEST! Amanda is absolutely attentive, kind, calm, and kept us on track throughout the entire wedding process. On our special day, Amanda led her team with such professionalism that everything ran more smoothly than we could have ever hoped for. Her team and the vendors that she recommended went above & beyond to make sure we had everything we needed. From bringing us appetizers while we finished up pictures to helping us change out of our wedding shoes into our dancing shoes and everything in between! Amanda helped organize a few surprises along the way, one being a video message from my son who is in the Navy & was unable to share in our big day, being able to "see" our son that day meant more to us than I could ever express! Amanda is a dedicated visionary who worked hard to make our dream day a success! We love you, Amanda!

Margaret & Drew

Amanda & her team are amazing! If you are planning a wedding in the San Luis Obispo area, hiring Amanda & her team is a must! The entire team is incredible. We absolutely could not have had the wedding of our dreams without their tireless help during the weekend. They made everything so easy, calm, and relaxed--they took the stress out of all elements of wedding planning & did so in the most fun & friendly way. On the day of the wedding, they made sure everything was taken care of, accounted for, and that we were able to have the time of our lives. And on top of all of that, when we had to postpone our wedding an entire year due to COVID, they made the rescheduling process seamless and went above & beyond in the help they provided us. Amanda & her whole team were truly amazing to work with, & you will not regret working with them for your wedding!

Caroline & Nolan

Excellent Service and Extremely Helpful. Amanda from Amanda Holder Events was an absolute dream to work with. I was giving a rehearsal dinner for my nephew and his fiancé, but I lived hundreds of miles away. We worked by phone, email, and Aisle Planner and I walked in 10 minutes before the guests arrived to the most amazing event. She is completely on it - every single detail. She was kind and helpful and always had a good suggestion. I wouldn't hesitate to use Amanda and her staff again and I would recommend them to anyone!

- Mary Ellen, Aunt of the Groom

Megan & Garrett

Beyond amazing!!! Our wedding day wouldn’t have turned out perfect without the help of Amanda Holder & her team! Planning a destination wedding can be intimidating at first when you aren’t familiar with the area, vendors, and unable to meet in person. But choosing Amanda to help us plan our wedding was the best choice we could have made. Despite prolonging our wedding & changing our date multiple times due to Covid and finding out how much stress and heartache this caused us. Amanda worked with us through it all! She was always available when we needed her for changes, concerns and calmed us through some worrisome times. She has the kindest heart & is truly passionate about her job. Our wedding day turned out beyond anything I had ever imagined!

Jennifer & Elliott

Couldn't have happened without them! I never wanted to plan a wedding. I was never that little girl dreaming about her wedding. The bachelorette & honeymoon trips are what I was dreaming about as a little girl. We did really well picking out all of our vendors; after that wedding planning wasn't fun for me. I convinced my husband (who wanted the wedding celebration & not the courthouse wedding) to let me factor in a wedding planner into our budget because I told him I didn't sign up for this. Amanda and her team took on everything I had no interest in planning and thought of things I would have never thought of. They were great & honestly our wedding wouldn't have been as beautiful, well put together, or flow nicely if it wasn't for Amanda and her team. Thank you for everything & convincing my husband this service was needed!

Alexis & Will

Amazing experience from day one! We interviewed three different planners and Amanda had great experience, connection with vendors, and the best-priced packages for what we were looking for. It was a breeze working with her and her team using Aisle Planner to keep everything organized. They had great design ideas and were always available whenever we needed them. I would highly recommend Amanda & her team to plan and coordinate your wedding on the central coast. She knows her stuff!

Baylie & David

Absolute Perfection! Amanda Holder & her team are nothing short of EXCELLENT. As the mother of the bride, I worked with Amanda throughout the entire planning process. When hiring Amanda & her team we had no idea we would be trying to plan & execute our daughters wedding during a worldwide pandemic. 3 date changes, 2 wedding venues, multiple vendor additions & swaps, & 3 sets of invitations, I never once saw Amanda unsettled or shaken by these crazy uncharted waters. She navigated the entire process with ease & professionalism. Not to mention her smile & bubbly personality will light up any room. She is a true leader in the field & handled every hiccup that came our way...and believe me COVID threw us many. Needless to say our daughter’s day was absolutely perfect, every single detail executed with precision. It could not have been more magical & we owe everything to Amanda Holder Events.

- Jenny, Mother of the Bride

Alyssa & Matt

You need Amanda & her team! Amanda was BEYOND incredible! I've never seen someone so on top of their game and organized in every area. Her "day of" services definitely expanded into much more. Her team of girls (all so sweet & equally as organized!) were so amazing, helping in all areas and coordinated the day beautifully. Everything was perfect, way beyond any expectations! I would highly highly recommend Amanda & her team to anyone and everyone.

Heidi & Dale

Absolute Perfection! Amanda and her team were on-point, every step of the way. Everything was absolute perfection and executed with dignity and grace. I would love to do more events with this amazing team. Thank you so much for making my dream day come true.

Lauren & Landan

You can't plan a wedding without AHE! Amanda and her team literally saved my wedding! They were so easy to work with the entire time! Even when a global pandemic caused literally everything to go wrong, Amanda stayed calm and saved the day. I could not have done it without her and her team. AHE helped me plan the wedding of my dreams!!!

Megan & Will

Best wedding planner /un-planner / planner! If you are planning a wedding on the Central Coast do not hesitate to hire Amanda Holder and her team immediately. She has the best connections with vendors & a phenomenal reputation among the wedding industry (all our vendors were like "Amanda's your planner, you're going to the have the best wedding ever")! From our initial interaction she was beyond helpful with vendor recommendations & contract review. TRUST ME, you NEED a wedding planner because even if you are the most organized person in the best of times, you cannot plan for a global pandemic & all the curve-balls it will throw at you. Amanda & her team were not only able to plan our dream wedding for 275 of our closest friends, but due to COVID-19 she was able to unplan and re-plan our wedding for only 27 people and make it feel like nothing was missing. She checked in on us along the way & helped us make the hard decisions once the reality of not being able to have our original wedding set in. She was able to keep aspects from what we thought was our “dream wedding” and pull off our actual dream wedding while including almost all of our original vendors on a much smaller scale. I cannot emphasize enough that if you are considering an event on the Central Coast, this is your girl. She is on your team & it will be better than you dreamed!!!

Sarah & John

Amanda Holder Events is the best! Amanda and her team are literally the best, no hyperbole. From start to finish, Amanda was there for guidance whenever I needed help, but was hands-off when I was happy planning things on my own. She handled all of the challenging things (like working with the caterer to determine all their specific needs, or confirming our guest counts and timeline with all our vendors) and kept me involved at all points. She also has relationships with so many amazing local vendors, so she knows exactly who to recommend for you and your style. Not only is she amazing, her team is fantastic as well! They were able to take all my personal items and decor and created these amazing displays that were so beautiful - all without any input from me, which allowed me to focus on getting ready and being present at our wedding. They made the day-of run so, so smoothly, which allowed both me and my husband (and our families) to just enjoy the day instead of worrying or working. I couldn't recommend Amanda more!

Katrina & Matt

Amanda is the BEST!! Hire her... you will not be disappointed. Amanda went above & beyond on my wedding day. Amanda & her mom who was there to help the day of, were a dream come true & without those two, my wedding would not have been possible. The next morning at brunch, we all sat around & talked about how important she was to our special day and how thankful we were for her presence. Amanda paid attention to every small detail, took care of any mishaps that may have happened along the way, & made sure everything was on point. The vision I had of my wedding vs what Amanda put together, was beyond what I could have imagined & I know she is the number one person to thank for it. In the very beginning, Matt questioned why we needed a wedding coordinator. Waking up the morning after the wedding, he looked at me & said “Amanda killed it”. He is 100% just as thankful as I am. I did not read reviews or interview any other coordinator before hiring Amanda as she came highly recommended by both my venue & florist, so I figured I would snag her before someone else did. I don't regret that decision for one second- there is a reason why everyone says Amanda Holder Events is the best in town! Thank you so much for everything Amanda! I sure hope we can cross paths again someday.

Andrea & Enrique

Amanda, where do we even begin!? THANK YOU for an awesome time, an awesome set up, and a flawless execution! All of our guests were so impressed and loved everything, as did we!!

Amy & Kevin

Thank you so much for all of your help and support in planning this whole thing. We really had such an amazing time and you made our vision and our dream come true. The girls were amazing, too, and we'll never forget that day. Thank you so much for making it all go smoothly and perfectly!

Kirsten & Adam

Highly Recommend! Hiring Amanda & her team was one of the best investments that we made towards our wedding! From the moment we hired her, she was extremely professional, approachable, friendly and insightful. She was always quick to respond and was there to answer any and all questions, big or small. She was beyond helpful and a consistent cool, calm & collected during a time that wasn’t always such. The weekend of our wedding, Amanda and her team made sure myself, the groom and our families had nothing to worry about. Everything went smoothly in big part to them and the other excellent vendors we had, most of which were recommendations of Amanda’s. It is obvious she is loved by her clients and other vendors because she is a lovey person and great at her job. I highly recommend hiring her and her team.

Carlie & Ian

Amanda and her team were wonderful to work with! As a couple coming from out of town, she was able to recommend great vendors to us who all helped make the day perfect. It was easy enough for us to explain our vision and they were able to execute on it and make it a reality. When considering hiring a coordinator, Amanda and her team were clearly our top choice, they handled the setup, cleanup, vendor tips, and all of the other details that we probably would have missed without them! Special thanks to Julia who helped me feel so calm & at ease during the rehearsal & on the day of the wedding. We couldn't imagine our wedding day without Amanda and would highly recommend her!

Victoria & Rob

If you want a wedding without a care in the world then Amanda Holder Events is the ONLY option. She and her team think of and cover every detail from start to finish. Every one of our vendors repeatedly told us we had the "A" team with Amanda and I couldn't agree more. Thank you Amanda & Julia for caring as much about my wedding day as I did. You are loved by all and now I understand why.

Jennifer & Casey

I am not sure that I have the words to be able to express my thanks & gratitude towards Amanda & everything that she and her team has done to create & execute my dream wedding experience. Working alongside Amanda was the best decision I could have ever made (aside from saying “yes” to the wedding proposal!). Prior to wedding planning, I was a ball of nerves & stress & I had no vision for the wedding whatsoever. Amanda’s full service package was exactly what I needed. From Day 1, she was calm, professional, & easy to talk to & connect with. She helped build a wedding that matched the personalities & wants of my husband and I, with very little help from the two of us. She knew all of the vendors in the area & clearly had established positive, strong relationships with each of the folks that worked the event. The wedding day itself ran so smoothly. She remembered every little detail & helped everything go exactly as planned. My father thanked her in his speech as even he realized how much of the wedding success was due to her & her team! I can honestly say that there is nothing that I would have changed about the wedding & it was Amanda that made it all possible. The services that she provides are VIP status. Anyone that has the opportunity to work with her should feel incredibly blessed that they are working with the best event planner, period.

Rachell & Shea

Amanda was the first member of our wedding team that we added when we began putting our wedding together. She has extensive knowledge of the wedding industry & experience in event planning. She was able to recommend venues & other vendors based on knowing our personality, the vision for our wedding, & also taking our budget in to consideration. She promptly answered any questions we had & was willing to meet with us in person when necessary. Throughout the planning process she put our minds at ease, letting us know that tasks were completed & where we should be focusing next. During the rehearsal she was polite & assertive with our group which was exactly what was required to keep everyone focused, yet having fun. She & her team were a blessing on our wedding day keeping everything running smoothly. We received many compliments from parents, friends, & other family about all aspects of the wedding of which a majority stemmed from the coordination & planning of Amanda & her team.

Cassidy & Christian

Simply the best. Amanda far exceeded our high expectations & pulled off a wedding that many of our friends & family are calling the best ever. She is responsive, organized, calm & has the best vendors I have ever worked with. The food & cake were superior, the florist was fantastic & the DJ was awesome. And they were all so fun, they became like family. I loved the website she set up to help us plan, it was invaluable. The coordinator at the venue we selected had nothing but high praise for Amanda. She stayed within budget & helped keep track of our expenses & her payment reminders were invaluable. She was so amazing the day of the wedding, calm, efficient, kept everyone on time & made sure the bride and the mother of the bride! had food and drinks throughout the evening. We were thrilled with everything. If we could give her 100 stars, we would. HIGHLY recommend Amanda & all of her preferred vendors.

- Marlin & Sherri, Parents of the Bride

Jessica & Jake

Amanda and her team truly pulled together our dream wedding! Everything thing was seamless & I was a stress-free bride on my wedding day. From the beginning she was helpful with listening to my ideas and helping pick the right vendors. Although we went with many of her suggestions, we also picked a few vendors whom she had never worked with before. She was very organized & responsive when pulling all the various vendors together. I’ve had many of them compliment on how easy & kind Amanda was to work with. Amanda and her team were a true blessing to us on our wedding day and we are so thankful for all that they did to make our wedding so fun, beautiful, & memorable!

Ellyn & Hal

You and your team were so amazing to work with. Thank you for giving me peace of mind and allowing us to truly have a care-free wedding.

Nicole & Ian

Amanda was simply amazing! She kept me calm and collected, not only the day of my wedding, but the days leading up to it, as well! She made sure my glass was full and made our special day go so smoothly! She’s the best!! We are so glad that we chose her to be our coordinator. 🙂

Laura & Carla

Amanda is awesome! My partner and I were married at Ocean Point Ranch in Cambria, California. We interviewed Amanda and were so pleased with everything she did for us! She was professional, communicated, on time, added her own special touch and incredibly easy to work with. Although we just met her, she knew exactly what we wanted and made it happen. The small hiccups that occurred went unnoticed and she handled them with ease! She made our day exactly what we wanted. If you are having any type of event in the Cambria or surrounding areas we recommend Amanda! She will make your event exactly what you want and do it in a fun, easy, and professional way.

Savannah & Ryan

Amanda is a phenomenal person to have help plan your wedding day. We are seriously still in awe of how perfect everything was and so glad we were lucky enough to work with her! Planning from out of state, it was such a relief knowing she was on top of everything. From the start her experience and professionalism with managing a large event is evident and she leaves no small detail untouched. Amanda is a great listener and collaborator who will help you both determine your priorities and vision for the wedding along with how to best execute it. In the planning process she remains extremely organized and proactive. In addition to coordination, we worked with Amanda on the design as well since that was something we knew would be better left to the pros. We chose to let her really let her work her magic with the overall design and were not disappointed one bit. She took our crazy ideas and ran with them making it better than we could have ever imagined. Especially being out of town, choosing vendors was one thing we were really wary of. However, that was all in vain with the caliber of people she recommended. She has an amazing community of vendors to pull from with the added bonus that they are well experienced working together. Amanda only recommends the best vendors in the area, people who she confidently knows will meet her standard. That said, she is also very aware of working within the boundaries and budget you want. On our wedding day itself, she handled every detail with precision, keeping oversight of every detail and running the show quietly from behind the curtain which enabled us as well as our families to focus on the event. More than anything, Amanda was a delight to work with! She is a people person with an approachable demeanor that she extends to everyone in attendance. It was said more than once that we wished we lived closer to be able to hang out again! We loved working with Amanda and absolutely recommend her for all your wedding needs!

Devon & Evan

Amanda was a true professional! She had the exact balance we were looking for in a professional—someone who can get the job done with no-nonsense but also help gently guide us through this experience that was so new to us. She was a great resource throughout our entire engagement but it was the last 3 months (and wedding of course) where we got her more involved that we felt like everything she touched was TAKEN CARE OF. It was nice because as you get closer to the wedding, so many things really slip your mind and she didn’t forget about anything. The week before our wedding she learned from the caterer that we’d need to rent all the chafing dishes and food prep equipment (this was never mentioned in several conversations or our walk through) and she completely handled the additional order (she had to use a second rental company because the company we were using didn’t have this equipment). I still don’t even know exactly what was ordered—but i certainly didn’t care at that point. She even picked up the equipment the day of the rehearsal so we didn’t incur a second delivery fee. That was 100% not her responsibility and we were so grateful. My ONLY regret was not bringing her on board to plan our entire wedding weekend start to finish. She definitely helped but my husband and I wanted to be very involved. Mistake. Wish I had just hired her for EVERYTHING.

Amanda & Sean

Amanda was an absolute joy to work with. She listened to what we expected and followed through, even with last minute changes, AMANDA was on top of everything every step of the way. My daughter’s wedding went smoothly and she kept us to our timeline.
- Denise, Mother of the Bride

Taylor & Brian

Fantastic experience with Amanda and her team! They took away the stresses of the day and confidently handled all the little hiccups without me even knowing. Excellent team, very lucky to have had them there during our day.

Natalie & Kyle

Sarah and Amanda were very knowledgeable of vendors in the area and provided just the right amount of guidance. The AHE team was so easy to work with and made wedding planning look easy! Thank you so much!!

Madison & John

Amanda, thank you so much for everything!!! You and your team were beyond amazing! Thank you for helping make our day oh so perfect!

Jaime & Kurt

Amanda and team, thank you so so much! Everything was great and your ladies were absolutely off the charts!! We could not have pulled this off without you all.

Aislinn & Mark

Thank you again for such an incredible weekend! We are so thankful for all of your help and Amanda Holder Events' help to give us the best day EVER!

Megan & Brent

Amanda, thank you so much to you and your amazing team for making yesterday go so smoothly! You are all absolute rockstars!

Allie & Sara

It’s hard to articulate how grateful we are for you and your incredible team. When we were choosing a wedding planner, we wanted someone organized, meticulous, creative, open-minded, and patient. We also wanted someone who made us feel seen, heard, and accepted. We are both perfectionists with extremely high standards and we wanted a wedding planner who could keep up…

WOW, did we find a perfect match in you! You were everything we hoped for and so, so much more. You exceeded every expectation we had and then some. You were always 10 steps ahead and we were the ones trying to keep up! Thanks to you, our wedding day was beyond anything we could have dreamt of, and was hands-down the best day of our lives. You and your team handled every single detail with ease and professionalism, all the while never losing sight of our desire to convey our love and our story through it all. Working with you was the best decision we made throughout this entire process. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you SO much.

Olivia & Michael

Amanda and her team are truly the best!!!! There are not enough words I can say to truly say how AMAZING it was to work with Amanda and her team. From the entire process of booking my vendors, communicating with my parents, helping me decide small details, to just being an incredible nice and stress-free wedding planner - it was incredible. Most brides say that the day of (which in my case was a weekend long event - 4+ events) is extremely stressful and goes by quickly and a little bit of a blur and it could NOT be less true with Amanda. Truly enjoyed and was in the moment at each event with ZERO stress!!! Amanda and her team are PROs and they gave us the best day & weekend we could've imagined and MORE! I can't imagine having done this without them; I'm so grateful. Truly couldn't recommend her and her team more!

Gracie & Clint

Amanda!!! BEST DAY EVER. Your team was absolutely amazing. From Sarah holding like a million of my belongings (& so happy to do so) to my glass of wine never being empty, to Martha calming me down before I walked down the aisle - everything was PERFECT. I can’t wait to see all of the photos (especially the one of you feeding me my margaritas). Love you SO SO MUCH!!!

Henesis & Jeremy

Amanda and team: thanks so much for advocating for us and our vision. We sincerely appreciate it. It really was an awesome day!

Jessica & Ethan

Our wedding was amazing and pretty much perfect! Amazing team who takes absolute pride in everything they do! Amanda and her team were fantastic! Every question was responded to transparently & thoughtfully and every detail was taken care of. We appreciate their support through the wedding planning process and having them as a sounding board for all of our ideas was above & beyond. We couldn't be happier! If anyone has any doubts, this should be your sign to work with AHE! Thank you again for everything!!!

Cassidy & Jordan

Thank you so much! Jordan and I kept saying to each other that the day ran so flawlessly and we are so happy with how everything turned out! And that is all because of your wonderful team! Absolutely the best!

Haley & Austin

10/10 Recommend! Cannot recommend Amanda Holder’s services enough!!! They were so professional and efficient on the day of the wedding and great communicators leading up to the day. Working with them was effortless. Thank you ALL so much for everything you’ve done for us over the past several months. It has been so reassuring knowing you all had our backs during this process. We are truly thankful for the time, energy, and thoughtfulness you’ve put in to help make our day special.

Heidi & Austin

THANK YOU!!! Our wedding was an absolute fairytale. Everything went so smoothly and so perfectly. I can't thank you enough for all of your help and support throughout this whole process, but especially during the big day! Your team is AWESOME! They were all so attentive and so sweet and kind. They always made sure we were doing good and got us anything we needed (shoutout to Shea!!!) This was definitely a stressful time in our lives and it meant so much to us that we could count on you all to help us through it. Also thank you for recommending the most kick-ass vendors to round everything out! The wedding team as a whole was absolutely amazing--from the flowers to the DJ to the photographer....wow, we loved everyone! What a brilliantly magical day. We will bask in this feeling forever.

Marquel & Bryson

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making this day so special! We would have been lost without you! Thank you for going above & beyond and then some! It’s been wonderful planning this wedding with you!

Delanie & Griffin

Thanks again for being such a rockstar for the entire wedding planning process. Delanie and I are both so grateful for having you, and we both agree it wouldn’t have been possible without all your hard work. Honestly it couldn’t have gone better. My Mom had a million nice things to say about you and how helpful and sweet you were, as well. Thanks so much for everything Amanda!

Sarah & Ryan

Professionalism & Support You Need! Exceptional Wedding Planner; she goes above and beyond!!! Amanda & her team are probably one of the most put-together professionals in the wedding planning business. Without her, I would have never been able to pull all of this together. She is calm, cool, & collected and provides every ounce of support that was needed throughout the planning process. As a natural worrier, Amanda took every stress I had right off my shoulders and was every bit of reassuring. I always said, "I didn't know what I didn't know" & that's where Amanda comes in. She handles every tiny detail you normally wouldn't think of and puts together one spectacular wedding. She gave us the ability to rest assured and focus on what weddings truly are about... the celebration of love & new beginnings! I am truly blessed to have experienced her expertise and would recommend her to anyone getting married in the area.

Stephanie & Dan

The best wedding planning team! Amanda & team were so amazing to work with! They kept us organized, responded quickly to all of our questions throughout the planning process, gave us polite nudges if we were falling behind on our tasks, and made sure all the details that might be overlooked were taken care of. They did a fantastic job coordinating all the scheduling & details between vendors, and did an AMAZING job behind the scenes that made the wedding day go as smoothly as possible! Even with a power outage the morning of the wedding and the stress that can bring, I felt so relaxed knowing the team had the entire day under control! They had plan A, B and C ready just in case! The wedding day went by so quickly, but every time I saw them, they all had a smile & positive energy. Our wedding came together so beautifully! We don’t know how we would’ve done it without AHE!

The Ultimate Wedding Planner/ Coordinator Team! Amanda & her team are truly unbelievable! They go above and beyond for everything. I couldn’t imagine my wedding without their team, and they were truly the reason we were able to enjoy our wedding, knowing Amanda and her team had it handled. We were blown away by their professionalism, positivity, and friendliness. Their experience in the industry does not go unnoticed, and their knowledge and guidance throughout the whole wedding planning process is truly invaluable. They were well-known by every vendor I reached out to & they had nothing but great things to say about them - and now we know why! Simply put, Amanda and her team are on top of every detail and truly are the sweetest, most accommodating people to work with. We would definitely recommend AHE team for any wedding/event!

Britney & Riley

Erin & Rocky

For being a bride who works full time and is a mama made this planning flawless. I didn’t experience once hiccup and I never felt stressed once. Amanda & her team all genuinely care about you and your desire for the big day. All were beyond professional, outgoing, and positive. Not once did I have a freak out moment I knew everything was in the best hands. Amanda, I couldn’t have done it without your team. If I could tell every bride to have you on their big day I would!

Lauren & Ryan

The Best in Class Wedding Planner! Amanda Holder is hands-down the most talented, professional, kind, detailed, and the biggest superstar in the wedding game. She helped us put together a rockstar team of vendors and gave us much needed guidance every step of the way. After having to reschedule our wedding due to COVID, she took away every bit of stress and facilitated a smooth transition to our new date. She ensured we had the best wedding weekend possible. Amanda planned our Rehearsal, Welcome Event and Wedding. Every part of the weekend was beautiful and went as smooth as it gets. Amanda and her team worked tirelessly throughout the weekend and were a breathe of fresh air and a calming presence. I would recommend Amanda Holder Events to anyone that is planning an event! We are forever grateful!

Jenn & Nick

Amanda and her team are THE BEST! I am very organized, so I wasn’t sure initially if I needed a wedding planner, but having Amanda turned out to be the absolute best decision. She helped us all along the way and scheduling + rescheduling vendors due to COVID. The day of our wedding was absolutely perfect and she handled everything! It really was a beautiful day & perfectly matched the vision I had in my head. I was super nervous before the ceremony and the girls on Amanda’s team even helped calm me down. If you want your wedding to be a seamless and perfectly organized event, you have to have Amanda there!

Lisi & Ben

We can’t thank you enough for everything you’ve done for us. We have had basically zero wedding-related stress thanks to you and your team. This day was everything we ever wanted! Thanks so much!

Mallory & Garrett

Thank you for the miracle you pulled off for Mallory & Garrett’s wedding! Thank you for making their day absolutely perfection. It could not have happened without you. We are so grateful for your kindness, resourcefulness, attention to detail, your connections, your emergency kit, your photos front he top of the cliff…I can go on and on.

Stacy & Josh

Absolute Dream Team - book them now!!! I do not even know where to start… Let’s just say, if I could give more than 5 stars, I would! From the moment I met Amanda, I felt so comfortable with her - she is sweet, bubbly & so friendly. She has so much experience, I felt totally at ease with letting someone else take over. Even in the midst of Covid & having to meet & plan over zoom, I still felt like I really got to know her & she made the planning process so much easier. She uses a website where everything is in one spot that has checklists, budgeting, seating charts, dream boards, & much much more. Having this easy-to-access lifted a huge weight off of my shoulders during the planning process. Amanda truly treats you like a friend & she was always readily available and easy to reach if I had any questions or concerns (which was so important to me - because I definitely had lots of questions)! I could tell within every conversation with her, grasping my vision for my wedding day was her utmost priority. If I thought it - she told me - we’ll make it happen. On the rehearsal day, I was able to meet the rest of her team & they were all incredible too! Each of them are so organized, punctual, friendly, & honestly make you feel so special & important at every moment. My wedding day quite literally could not have happened without them. I really could go on & on, but all I am trying to say is: I highly recommend this dream team, 10/10!!!

C.C. & Chris

I really enjoyed working with Amanda Holder leading up to the wedding. She is very organized and responsive, while being laid back, understanding, and flexible. Amanda Holder Events delivered during a most uncertain time! It was the BEST DAY EVER! Thank you!

Corinna & Nick

Amanda, thank you so much for making our special day so fantastic. It was the wedding of our dreams and you and your team pulled off such an amazing event!

Megan & Mark

Words can’t even describe how thankful I am for you! I honestly don’t know what we would have done if it hadn’t been for all your hard work and help. You have been our saving grace throughout this crazy process and we will always be so grateful. You are amazing.

Brooke & Brock

Amanda!! Thank you so much for everything. We had a blast, and it was absolutely the best night of my life. You and your team were nothing short of amazing. We really, really appreciate it!

Charlotte & Bryan

A Dream Come True. When we first met Amanda, we had lots of ideas & even some experience with event planning, however we needed to find someone who was willing to listen to our vision, add experience & expertise & coordinate all the details to make this dream come true. Enter Amanda Holder. We could not have been more fortunate that she & her team were available. She is beyond organized & professional. She is calm, cool & collected, & an all around nice person. Amanda was always there to reassure us, answer a quick question or give advice in a very timely manner. Her extensive knowledge, insight & connectedness to the local wedding community was invaluable. As mother of the bride, & being from out of the area, we felt like we were in good hands. Amanda and her team took all the logistical worries out of the wedding day. We were able to enjoy moment because they took care of working with all the vendors, setting up & orchestrating the ceremony & reception. Amanda took care of us so well. Her timing is impeccable & she was always around when needed or simply to check in. Amanda is very talented as a wedding planner & coordinator & I would highly recommend her & her team. My only regret would be that we didn't connect with her sooner in the process. She made the dream come true & we will be forever grateful.

Ashley & Ray

Amanda’s team made our day stress free. We planned a 220-person wedding in 6-ish months and we couldn’t have done it without Amanda! She has all the right recommendations for vendors that will make the day what you envision. They all enjoy working with her which will make your life SO much easier. I didn’t have to worry about anything the day of the wedding because Amanda was always one step ahead. Definitely recommend!

Kristen & Stephen

Organized, efficient, and fun Wedding Planning Team! Amanda & her team were so great to work with at our recent wedding in Los Alamos! We hired her "month of" but she was very helpful answering questions, coming to a site visit, and making recommendations for vendors leading up. Our wedding day could not have been any more perfect. She took care of every detail and it was flawless! We had the best day of our lives and we can't thank Amanda and her team enough for their efforts!

Kasey & Troy

As mother of the bride, I am forever grateful to Amanda Holder and her team for guiding us through this fairytale wedding. Amanda was right there every step of the way. We gave her our ideas and she ran with them giving us so many options and guiding us to the right fit, man did she hit it out of the park! My daughter's wedding was absolutely magical and I truly felt like a guest. Everything ran like clockwork and I didn't have to worry about a thing! Amanda and her team took care of every detail and nothing was missed. She even made sure the new Mr & Mrs had appetizers and drinks during their photos and checked in with us throughout the entire event making sure we had everything we needed. After the wedding, many of our guests contacted us raving about that remarkable day.

- Renee, Mother of the Bride

Katelin & Douglas

We had a wonderful wedding! Thank you sooooo much!!! You really helped pull the whole day together and it was wonderful working with you, Amanda!!!

Manny & Christine

A big thank you for all you did to make the day FABULOUS. Everything was exquisite and all the planning and hard work really paid off. All the vendors did their jobs and everyone had a good time. From my personal perspective, I was truly able to relax and enjoy the day knowing that you had it all under control. Thank you!

- Janine, Mother of the Bride

Emma & Sean

Amanda and her team were an absolute DREAM! From the get-go, she was on top of everything! I cannot thank her enough for being so supportive and having every single thing under control. A true professional, she is outstanding and is absolutely worth investing in. Thank you so much Amanda!

Heather & Jacob

Amanda helped turn our dream vision into reality! Anything we threw at her, asking if it was possible, she would enthusiastically respond "Yes" to. She was a pleasure to work with, very professional and fun, and we truly could not have created the day we had without her!

Brianna & Ian

Amanda was very helpful with all our questions. She supplied many of the small items for the reception, so we didn't have to purchase everything (e.g. table numbers, cake platter, etc.). She handled all of the day-of challenges so we could focus on our special day.

Katelyn & Jeff

You put together the most beautiful, amazing, and perfect wedding that we could have ever asked for! My parents and I can’t stop talking about how perfect everything was and how smoothly everything ran! My dad also said that people can’t stop talking about how wonderful the wedding was! Thank you so much for EVERYTHING! It was such an honor, privilege, and pleasure to work with you!

Megan & Eric

Our wedding day was absolutely perfect!!! From the day we met Amanda to start planning, to our big day it was the most enjoyable experience for us. living out of state from our wedding location we were very lucky to have Amanda Holder Events recommend all of our vendors, have seamless communication and take our style to turn it into the most beautiful wedding. We definitely had the best team from florals, catering, photography, music, and so many more thanks to Amanda’s great network in San Luis Obispo!!! We couldn’t have asked for a better experience for our friends and family to celebrate our big day!!!

Kelsey & Jesse

We couldn’t have done it without Amanda…. well we could have, but we would have huge balls of stress for months, our relationships and jobs would have suffered, and our wedding wouldn’t have looked anything like how we envisioned it! (and how it did actually end up turning out!) Amanda handles all of the details you know about, and all of the ones you don’t. She makes you feel calm and on track. I never thought we would end up hiring a wedding planner, but I have zero regrets that we did. Amanda made sure that what we envisioned became reality, which allowed us to focus on what is really important… celebrating the love between each other and celebrating with our friends and family!

Paula & Rich

Amanda was truly a pleasure to deal with and when it was “game time” on the day of the wedding, she crushed it, which was not an easy job with my beautiful bride – thank you Amanda for everything you did, as you made the day unforgettable!

Kalyn & Rob

Rob and I are so grateful to have had the opportunity to meet and work with Amanda. She went so above and beyond for us and always had a sense of ease that made all aspects of the planning stress free. She brought our vision of the day to life (and actually made it better in a lot of ways)! We received nothing but wonderful feedback from family and friends on how lovely, professional, and creative the decor/food was. Most of all, Amanda, her mother and her husband made us feel apart of their family, and made sure we were taken care of. We would recommend Amanda to everyone and anyone for any of their event planning needs!

Kaitlin & Frank

Amanda was our Full Service wedding “producer” for our April 15th wedding at Standing Sun Winery in Buellton. My husband’s family is from LA and mine is back in the midwest, so without them nearby to help with planning, Amanda had especially big shoes to fill. She was one of my first calls when we got engaged because I’d known her for several years professionally as an event planner, and I wanted to learn more about her wedding services. I thought I knew how valuable a wedding coordinator was going to be, but she exceeded our expectations! It was like she read my mind throughout the planning–every time I sent her a question about something she would reply with exactly the information I needed because she had already gathered it and was on to the next item. I don’t know how she managed to work on so many things at once, and our wedding being in Santa Barbara County with vendors from Paso Robles to Santa Ynez was a little more than her average local San Luis Obispo affair. Whether it was exploring vendor options or locking them in, Amanda was by our side. My mom said that at first she thought getting a coordinator for the wedding was a bit excessive, but once she saw how everything was coming together she knew it was the best decision we made. That’s a pretty huge compliment from any mother of the bride, but especially from mine! The day was absolutely more than we could have imagined! A month later and we are both still glowing, and getting so many compliments about it from our friends. I remember pulling up to the winery and seeing everything set up–the caterer cooking, the tents and decor beautifully arranged, the mariachi band playing, guests having fun from the moment they arrived. Everything we shared with Amanda, the feeling we wanted at our wedding (a fun and festive atmosphere), the ease for our families, guests, vendors, and ourselves–it was perfect! We couldn’t have asked for more. Thank you, Amanda! It was truly the best day of our lives.

Katie & Austin

We had the pleasure of working with Amanda in October 2015 for our 85 guest wedding at See Canyon Fruit Ranch. Amanda was our wedding coordinator and the experience was fantastic. Our original plans for the wedding did not include a wedding coordinator but as we did more planning and discussion we decided to hire one to help make the event run as smoothly as possible. This was a great decision in retrospect and hiring Amanda and her team was money well spent. From the initial meeting with her before the event all the way up through the big day she was very pleasant, responsive, and kept everything under control and running smoothly in an almost effortless way. We spent a lot of time planning the big day ourselves but when it came down to the actual flow and details of the day Amanda was the one who made it run so well that we were able to enjoy the event from beginning to end. She also had a small team of assistants that were great and added a lot of support to the day’s events. As the person we interacted with the most for the wedding Amanda was always pleasant and prepared. She created a clear timeline for the big day that kept us on track. This was a great help. She handled questions and issues from vendors, guests, and us quickly and easily. The whole day went off without a hitch and everyone had a great time. I think we were expecting to be somewhat stressed the entire time but, amazingly, we were able to relax and enjoy it, and I think a lot of that is a direct result of her work. Highly recommended.

Autumn & Alex

I never thought I needed a wedding planner. I mean I love planning and coming up with ideas and honestly I was on a budget and thought wedding planners were only for the rich, first time brides with no regard to what they spend. That being said, my florist gave me good vibes so I scheduled a meeting with Amanda. She is probably one of the sweetest women I have ever met. We met over wine and talked and talked. She gave me her background and was seriously impressive. I could tell she was just the perfect person to help me. We hired her on the spot. When you are a bride you tend to get a little coo-coo. Even when things are running smoothly you just get stressed. Amanda has a calmness about her that you need to have on your wedding day. She is extremely organized, passionate, positive upbeat and gets the job done. But her calmness and getting you to calm down was the single most cherished quality I can say. She always had an answer and was so eager to help. Nothing phased her and she always had a smile on her face. I put all my trust in her to take my vision and put It in to fruition. Not only did she bring it to life, but she made it even better than I ever could have imagined. The venue was perfect and I cried all the way down the aisle. Once the ceremony was over it was time to breathe and party and Amanda was always there with a drink to hand me or directions to do what was next. It went as smoothly as it could have possibly gone. Everything was perfect, everyone had fun and even my venue staff and management said she was the “BEST” coordinator that they had ever had and they have been doing weddings for years. It was definitely worth every penny and exceeded our expectations in every way. I hope this will help you choose Amanda to plan your wedding. You will not be disappointed!

Chelsea & Erik

Amanda was a God-send for our wedding! We previously booked with another wedding coordinator, but was not receiving timely responses and it was making us very nervous. We mad the decision to look elsewhere and found Amanda. From our first conversation on the phone it just felt like it was meant to be. She is everything you need in a wedding coordinator: organized, responsive, flexible, positive and will take control when needed. She put my mind at ease over so many little details and let me text her with anything on my mind, which was very helpful! I feel like it’s very rare that you hear someone say their wedding day had nothing go wrong, but we can absolutely say that, thanks to Amanda. Everything was executed to perfection and Amanda kept the whole night moving smoothLy. Hiring Amanda was the right choice and she was a priceless member of our team!

Alisha & Keith

Amanda was absolutely amazing! She went above and beyond what I expected from a wedding coordinator. She was extremely organized and always on top of things. As soon as I hired her, I immediately felt a huge weight off my shoulders. Amanda took care of everything down to the tiniest detail and our wedding could not have gone any smoother. She made sure everything happened when it was supposed to and was always there to make sure I had everything I needed. Our wedding was fabulous and I know it’s in large part thanks to Amanda. I do not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding coordinator!

Candice & Steve, Parents of the Bride – My daughter recently was married and Amanda Holder was her wedding coordinator. I live four hours away, so I was a bit anxious since I was not able to physically be there to help my daughter much. It turns out with Amanda at the helm I had absolutely no need to worry. The wedding was flawless and fabulous. Everything went smoothly and the vendors Amanda recommended were great. The vendors seemed like they were having fun, as well as the guests. Love was in the air; what a beautiful day it was for all. Amanda was behind the scenes all day long, silently directing. Everyone was relaxed and enjoying the day. I heard from several quests that they had a great time. We were very lucky to have had Amanda. My husband and I got to sit back and enjoy the day. We were very appreciative for everything Amanda did for us and the happy couple.

Kelly, Sister of the Groom – My dad and brothers can’t stop talking about how impressed they were with you. I, of course, already knew that, but it’s fun to hear everyone else sing your praises! You absolutely made yesterday perfect and seamless. It couldn’t have gone better and I’m so grateful to you and your team!!!

Gina, Mother-of-the-Bride – Thank you to you for helping Brianna and Ian plan and execute their very special day. You did a wonderful job – everything was beautiful, on time and organized! Thank you so very much for being the special person that you are!

Gina – I would highly recommend Amanda to anyone who needs a wedding planner/closer or event coordinator. She is friendly, knowledgeable, organized, creative, professional, energetic and calm under pressure. As a result of Amanda’s hard work and skills, my daughter’s wedding and reception were absolutely beautiful, timely, well organized and fun. My family and I were able to fully enjoy the wedding and reception because Amanda was in charge.

Michael & Kacy – We can’t thank you enough for the WONDERFUL wedding you made possible for Katelyn and Jeff!!! I know that it was a “dream come true” wedding for all of us! You made me feel special——I felt totally taken care of and apprised of each step along the way! Everything was so LOVELY and well-coordinated! You and your staff did an amazing job! We heard so many wonderful compliments! Throughout the planning these past several months, you have been patient, upbeat, reassuring, and accessible!  I’m so very glad that you agreed to be Katelyn and Jeff’s wedding coordinator!

Kristen – I have worked with Amanda on multiple events. From my engagement shower, wedding showers, rehearsal dinner and wedding day she was always there to help in any way. Helping with shower decor, food, music, finish programs, favors, wedding day planning details to actually being with me on my wedding day to ease nerves and ensure details that were important to me we’re attended to. Even when my wedding cake began to melt Amanda’s quick thinking averted what could have been a disaster. I don’t know how I would have done it without her! Since my wedding day Amanda has always been my go to girl for any party planning needs, from multiple baby showers to birthday parties, holiday parties and beyond. If I want it to be a fabulous, memorable event, I always know she’s who I can count on for help to make it happen.

Deborah – My daughter was married last weekend at the beautiful and magical La Cuesta Ranch in San Luis Obispo. Amanda served as our coordinator extraordinaire!! She is organized, service oriented, helpful beyond words and a consummate professional. Not only is she sweet and beautiful (inside and out) but she also offered a sense of calm, serenity and security to each moment of our event. The wedding and reception exceeded our expectations in every way in large part due to Amanda. As the mother of the bride my wedding weekend was completely stress-free and one of the most memorable and enjoyable weekends of my life. Thank you Amanda-you are the BEST!

Chantal – Amanda is hands-down amazing! She is passionate about what she does which shows through and makes the wedding process such a breeze. As a wedding coordinator myself, I needed someone who I could trust to take the lead and simply make the wedding happen. Amanda did this with no hesitation and went above and beyond. I didn’t have to think about timeline or details on the big day because Amanda was there to run the show. I also don’t think I would have made it through all the meetings and the big day without her because she has such a calming and relaxed presence. She gave helpful suggestions when needed and helped stand behind my ideas when others didn’t think they would work. She also made herself available throughout the planning process and always answered my questions and emails promptly. Amanda is a wonderful person and I thank her for helping make our day perfect!

Rodney & Courtney – Thanks to Amanda our wedding planning was 100% easier. She was on point from beginning to end. Her attention to our wants and needs was exceptional. From assisting us in dealings with venue, rentals, set up, wedding planning and time scheduling to ensuring everything was grand right to the end. She is truly amazing and a pleasure to work with. We’re so happy we were lucky enough to have her friendly, professional assistance. We feel she deserves 10 stars on a 5 scale rating. We would recommend her to anyone … at anytime. She truly GSD. Thanks Amanda.
