AJ + Hannah

When Hannah and I initially started working together, she told me she wanted an ‘English garden’ wedding and I believe that’s exactly what she experienced on her wedding day! We planned together long-distance, so communication was extra important in our process and thinking through Hannah’s vision was a top priority.

Hannah and AJ said ‘I do’ under the canopy of beautiful trees, enclosed in lush greenery at the Dixon. Their indoor/ outdoor reception was perfect for the lovely spring day and let me tell you- it was a party! The dance floor was full the whole night and it was easy to see that Hannah, AJ and all their guests were having a great time.

Cheers to you, Hannah and AJ!


A word from Hannah:

“[Amanda] gave me invaluable advice, helped me choose vendors, helped me prioritize what was most important, helped me work within my budget and overall vision, and came up with creative ways to solve whatever problem would arise. Having a timeline definitely kept me on track throughout my 11-month engagement and created so much peace as we got closer to the wedding.

Travis + Alicia

Where do I even begin with this couple? Their joy and passion is just contagious! It was a blast working with Travis and Alicia, and a Colorado destination wedding was just the cherry on top!

Alicia and Travis wanted an outdoor, floral-focused, mountain view for their wedding. We were able to achieve just that with a wonderful space just outside the Denver area in Morrison, CO.

The bright florals were such an incredible focus for this event. Alicia works in landscaping, so I knew the florals and colors were a priority for her. More than anything, like always, the biggest priority is nailing exactly the vision my clients are hoping for and I certainly believe we achieved that on this event!

A word from Travis:

Amanda was always helpful and responsive without being pushy. She definitely decreased my wife’s stress throughout our entire engagement/planning period and was of invaluable help on our wedding day! She did a great job!

Alex + Rachel

Alex and Rachel had a very intimate wedding, with no wedding party and 30 guests in attendance. But make no mistake, they had a wonderful group of people surrounding them on their special day. Rachel and Alex are both very compassionate and caring people. And the chemistry! You can tell they're going to love one another forever. I have the honor of working with a variety of couples, but it's always a pleasure to work with people who have beautiful hearts, like these two.  

A word from Rachel:

Working with Amanda was incredibly special! I could not have asked for a better wedding planning experience. She brought great ideas and input while always keeping in mind our vision for the wedding. She coordinated our wedding day like a pro and handled all of the details - taking off so much extra stress. She helped make our wedding day perfect and I could not have done it without her!

Brian + Emily

Oh goodness...I don't even know where to start. I loved this wedding! These two just couldn't be surrounded with more people who adore them. When Emily approached me with their guest list and budget, I'll admit I had a hard time understanding how we could make it work. But everyone was behind them 100%. Friends and family prepped, cooked, cleaned, pitched in to setup, drop off, haul away, craft flowers and provide entertainment. I was amazed over and over again how far people were willing to go for these two. And it's because they LOVE them. And what's not to love? Emily and Brian radiate joy. They are both people of peace who are willing to love in ways I wouldn't even think to. They're going to have an incredible life together. 

A word from Emily:

We are so thankful for Amanda and her willingness to use her administrative gifts to help us plan and execute our wedding day! We knew it would be a little tricky to honor both of our families in the midst of wedding day dynamics, and Amanda helped to field everyone's expectations and demands so that we could be present. We couldn't be more grateful for the energy, joy and efficiency that she brought to this season. We really enjoyed every moment of our wedding and wouldn't have wanted anything to be different!

Darri + Kibibi

This wedding was just so beautiful.  I had the pleasure of working with Kibibi and her mother for a few months leading up to her wedding and getting to know her was a joy! She's such a servant to those around her- even on her wedding day. It amazes me to see a bride who puts other before herself, even on the day of her wedding. And her groom, Darri, was so caring and fun! These two- they love one another deeply and you could absolutely feel it on their wedding day. I loved every minute of the fun and the joy.

Kacy + Kim-An

What a wonderful couple! These two were such a joy to plan alongside and I was thrilled to help them construct the most incredible day.  The weather was fantastic for their wedding- a sunny day and blue skies paired perfect with the romantic Hunt Phelan Mansion in the backdrop as they said, "I do." These two wanted to provide everything for their guests- babysitting for the children in the wedding, cocktail hour, a sprawling buffet and dessert bar, wonderful band, and a great time. Kacy and Kim-An are so very loved by their families and more than 200 friends who joined them to celebrate. Be sure to checkout their review of my wedding planning here!

Andrew + Devin

What a couple! It's not rare for me to cry at weddings, especially for people who I've seen grow together, but Andrew and Devin had an incredible wedding and reception. Within the ceremony they incorporated so many people who are important to them, and the reception ended all too soon. You know it's an amazing celebration when everyone leaves wishing they could stay longer. I truly felt so lucky to help this special couple plan such a beautiful day!

Mark + Kristie

Make and Kristie sure know how to celebrate! A fun time was had by all as the couple tied the knot at Christ Methodist. Kristie and her boys, the two ring bearers, were so sweet! The reception at Chimes and Occasions in Cooper Young was the perfect mix of vintage and trendy for the couple. A brass trio's music filled the dance floor and people flowed outside and in from the pretty patio out back. If their special day is any indication, Mark and Kristie have many fun times ahead!

Kevin + Stacy

What can I say about Kevin and Stacy's wedding? It was beautiful. It was intimate. It was them. I worked with Kevin and Stacy to help them incorporate some of their favorite things into their special day: metal working (at the rehearsal dinner), a bagpiper, a wedding parade with ribbon wands and even an Elvis impersonator. Their special day included Kevin's kids in so many special ways. Be it less conventional, their wedding day was filled everything they loved, which is what I believe a wedding is all about.

Jackson + Kendall

Jackson and Kendall truly had a fairytale wedding, held at the private and rustic Cedar Hall in Bartlett, TN. The wedding part and chairs were filled with people who just adore these two. The couple radiated joy and God's love as they said "I do" under the umbrella of a clear sky, and blooming Crepe Myrtle trees. It was such a joy to be a part of such a celebratory day.
