We would highly recommend Amber to anyone planning their wedding! We hired her for day-of coordination and she did an outstanding job for a very reasonable price. Her services encompassed so many things: in meeting with our venue coordinator, she ironed out lots of questions we would not have thought to ask, gave us great advice on how long parts of the wedding would take, she took care of renting and setting up speakers for the ceremony, and so much more. We had rain and high wind forecast for our wedding day, so the ceremony location and some other aspects of the day were up in the air until the last minute, but Amber handled everything (including the rather anxious bride!) with complete grace. Her sense of professionalism and desire to get everything right helped us relax and know that everything was taken care of. Amber fulfilled of all of our requests leading up to our wedding and went well above and beyond on our wedding day. Thank you so much Amber!Sep 7, 2019VerifiedOnce Upon a Wedding's reply

I hired Amber and Katelynn for my wedding reception. I did not have a wedding coordinator but I have a big family who like to take charge. I know between my 5 sisters, my daughter and my best friend that Amber and Katelynn were probably told to do conflicting things multiple times, which must have been very frustrating. However, they were very professional, patient and helpful the entire night. A lot of my family and friends mentioned how professional and helpful they were. I would definitely use them again. It was wonderful to have them help us on our wedding day. Very professional and reliable help!Apr 23, 2019VerifiedOnce Upon a Wedding's reply
Carolyn, it was wonderful working with you AND your family! They all cared so much about making sure your day was amazing - they were a joy to work with :D
Amber and Aubrey were amazing to work with during the planning of our wedding. Aubrey was super organized and took full control of executing everything perfectly. I highly recommend using Everyday Events. I know we will use them for future events.Aug 3, 2019VerifiedOnce Upon a Wedding's reply
Thanks so much, Cecilia! We really enjoyed working with you to bring your wedding plans to life! We're looking forward to helping more great brides like yourself and would love to take care of any friends or family of yours that are planning to get married :)
Amber and Erin were great, very nice, easy going made the wedding party feel very comfortable. A few hours before the wedding i received a call from Amber that she had thrown her back out and was not going to be able to make it but she already had a backup all lined up. To be honest, I was freaking out a little because we had already rehearsed with her but Amber assured me that Erin was highly recommend and that we were in good hands. Everything worked our Erin was great! Amber followed up to see how thing went and I couldn’t be any happier with the both of them.Apr 8, 2019Verified

Amber and Max were AMAZING! I originally hired two event helpers through another woman who pulled out less than a week before my wedding. Thankfully I went onto Thumbtack, submitted an inquiry and within less than 20 minutes Amber sent me a message with a quote. She saved me! Amber and Max were so efficient and professional during my wedding. I didn't have a wedding planner, so I had so much on my mind and many things to worry about that day. I never once had to worry about Amber and Max, they were so on top of every little detail. I can't thank them enough for all their hard work!May 10, 2017VerifiedOnce Upon a Wedding's reply
Awe, I'm just so glad we were able to take care of everything so you could enjoy the day. Congrats again and best wishes! Amber
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?We want to help you get married with as little stress and worry as possible. We don't believe you should have to cut service to stay within your budget. Our prices are intentionally set to reflect the average cost for services in our market so that you can get the best service for the best price! We're now offering virtual officiating planning "Micro Monies", as coined by The Knot, at 50% the regular price so we can help brides keep their original dates. As a Veteran-Owned business, we are honored to work with other veterans and first-responders and will continue offering 15% off regularly prices services once we're able to perform full, in-person weddings again.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?A couple's wedding day is about more than just getting people together to watch a ceremony, eat food, and dance. It is an expression of the love that the two of you share and marks the beginning of a new and exciting chapter in your relationship! Our clients usually reach out in email to schedule a day and time to chat over the phone before meeting in person to get into the details. After meeting we will send a formal proposal for review. Proposals are valid for 30 days and a 50% deposit is typically due within 10 days of signing the agreement, to hold the date. We understand that the future is a bit uncertain right now and are waiving the deposit deadline required to hold your date. Instead, we will hold your date until we receive a request from another couple. If that happens, we'll reach out to you to allow you to cover your deposit and keep your date.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Organization, efficiency, and creativity in my work has always driven me to find the work that it best-suited for my talents. I've dedicated my life to personal and professional development through lots of reading, attending conferences and seminars, online training, receiving mentoring from other pros in the industry and aligning myself with the Association for Wedding Professionals International. Working with brides to help see their wedding day dreams turn to reality utilizing spreadsheets and calendars and managing logistics allows me to work in my strengths and find great satisfaction!
