There are not enough superlatives to describe Amanda personally and professionally as she planned our daughter’s wedding which took place earlier this June. She is creative, conscientious, organized, and dependable and worked tirelessly to make Ginny’s vision come to life. She took care of the smallest details as well as the big picture, encouraged when needed and shouldered stresses and did it all with such warmth and grace! The day of the wedding was so relaxed for the family and wedding party because we knew all was covered by Amanda! It would be my joy to speak personally with anyone about our experience with M+J Events.

My husband walked our two daughters down the aisle last year within 6 weeks of each other. Amanda was with us from the engagements through to the wedding days and until all the bills were settled and the wedding dresses were cleaned and preserved. Don’t know how we could have done it without her.

If you hire Amanda to help plan your wedding you will not be disappointed! She is friendly, professional, competent, responsive, reliable and creative. She helped us define our vision in realistic terms and then honored our wishes and our budget. She made sure that our events reflected each daughters’ unique style and wishes. She coached us through countless questions and unexpected situations along the way. She was willing to work with our preferred florist and photographers but then helped to secure other needed vendors to make the days complete. She thought of every detail and then managed the orchestration of everything coming together.

The week and especially the weekend of the weddings Amanda was present and in command of the timeline and needs of the day. She anticipated the rich moments that would need more focus & care and she knew when to move us out the door! She was totally hands-on but always subtle and behind-the-scenes. I cannot express to you how much it meant to me to have Amanda there to shoulder the stress points of wedding and allow me full freedom to be “present” with my girls, my husband and our family and guests. I enjoyed every moment of these once-in-a-life-time days. This alone was worth the cost of the Amanda’s services.

Both our weddings exceeded our expectations —- Amanda’s partnership was key! Please feel free to contact me if you want to talk more. Amanda has my contact info.

Best wishes as you prepare for a wonderful event!
