From the first conversation Amanda had with us she understood every want and need we had for our wedding. She was so quick to be able to understand our aesthetic, vibe, and most importantly our dream. She walked us through every vendor possibil...
ity, her recommendations, why she recommended them specifically for us, and listened to our thoughts. She also listened to every silly question we may have thought was silly and never judged. She kept us calm throughout the whole process and repeatedly checked in on us. We truly believe that she is a huge reason our wedding was the single best, and most perfect day of all time! Do not be silly, and hit that message vendor button as fast as possible! Shout out to the whole team at EBA!!

I can't say enough about Amanda's dedication, passion and genuine love of her job!
Amanda was the only person I would trust as a planner. She worked diligently to make sure all of my decor was set up, my vendors were on time and had everything...
they needed, all of the family and bridal party were comfortable and knew where they needed to be and when.
It takes a special kind of person to understand family dynamics upon first meeting a large group of people - Amanda excels at this. She knew how to navigate divorced parents, awkward first meetings, and tons of out of town guests; all the while setting up a wedding in a venue she had to travel over 10 hours to get to! I cannot sing her praises enough.
I was able to relax knowing that she was not only executing my vision but doing it with grace!

nd rude. The day before the wedding (I paid for month out services not day of, so the contract included rehearsal and setup) she spent nearly two hours showing the venue to another couple and I brainstormed myself where to start my aisles, where to put the podium, etc. Also when someone asked her to get a plate for me (she neglected to get a plate for my MOH, who was my seven year old daughter and would obviously not go into the buffet line by herself) she scoffed, suggested to my bridesmaids that THEY do it (what?) rolled her eyes like she was being put out and said fine I’ll do it. And then like dropped the plate of food on the table. She also didn’t bother to make sure the bottom layer of my cake was cut, so my own mother (and several other family members) didn’t get any of my wedding cake. She begrudgingly helped set up last minute things the day of, and was rude as hell to everyone during the rehearsal. Several people complained about her. Finally, we had a rogue ringbearer running down the aisle, which I obviously couldn’t see, and despite this she told me to start walking anyways which totally ruined the effect of me walking down the aisle with my future husband to see. Thankfully I planned a majority of the wedding myself, and the mishaps and rude comments were not seen by any of the guests that weren’t in the wedding party. But she makes it seem like she has her shit together and that is absolutely not the impression I got. Maybe if I would’ve paid $3,000 something for entire planning services she’d have cared more, but I paid $1,800 for month out and really feel as though it was not worth it.

I want to start off and say that Amanda is SO amazing. If you are starting your wedding search for a planner, stop here.
Amanda was recommended to Kyle and I by a friend after we had countless day of planners stop responding to us or disregard...
We reached out to Amanda and she immediately made time to speak with us and made us feel like we were the only couple that mattered. I knew in that moment that we had to work with her. Amanda went above and beyond to make our wedding a dream come true.
As someone who loves to "DIY", I may have taken on too much when planning this wedding. Even though Amanda was only our day of, she went out of her way to send us recommendations for vendors, set up our florals super last minute (so sorry!), think of things when plans changed last minute, and overall was super supportive and responsive when we needed her most. Amanda is super knowledgeable of St.Augustine and all of the vendors the town has to offer. She found us an amazing catering team and helped problem solve whenever something went wrong. She was straight forward and didn't sugar coat any situation which is definitely what you need with a planner.
10 out of 10 would recommend her to all my family and friends getting married in the near future.
We love you Amanda! We hope we didn't drive you crazy!

e brides family, became irritated with the bridesmaids with any small request, and honestly just wasn’t helpful in the slightest. Whatever feelings she had about the bride or the wedding she should have remained professional regardless. None of the requests for assistance were outside of what to be expected and no one was rude to her. She should honestly consider a new profession if she can’t maintain her professionalism with any slight inconvenience to her day.

coordinating services because I knew that all the people I trusted and loved to help facilitate and organize things would be apart of our big day already. I came across Amanda, and first of all loved that her last name is my now married last name! After speaking with her, I knew she was the one. She was available to answer questions (even the weird detailed ones) and give advice on vendors. Looking back now, and I do not say this lightly, our wedding COULD NOT have been what it was without Amanda. Do not have a wedding without a coordinator, and if you’re going to choose a coordinator, choose Amanda! She is decisive, strong willed, and knows what will make your wedding the best. She picked up on our style and ran with it. Since it was day-of coordinating we were able to do a lot of the work, which was fun being apart of the planning process, but don’t underestimate just how much work it is. Amanda is well versed with vendors, being in the business for as long as she has, and has so much experience with wedding etiquette and the flow of things. I just can’t imagine what it would have been like without her. She had meetings with us so we were on the same page and created a timeline of events, did a venue walk through, helped us through rehearsal, and KILLED it on our wedding day. She was so calm and helpful. Setting up all of our reception area, facilitating the timeline, and getting everyone where they needed to be when they needed to be there, including the groom and myself. On top of it all, kept our drinks full and made sure we were fed! There just aren’t enough words to thank her! Thank you for helping make our wedding so beautiful and everything we dreamed of. We highly recommend booking Amanda as your wedding coordinator!

This was also a "covid wedding." She didn't skip a beat... she jumped right in when we were re-planning, changing dates, changing numbers, etc. Nothing was too big of a job for her.

what you would call “COVID” bride from NJ. I had to cancel my wedding two times in upstate NY when my now husband and I decided we wanted to do something super small, elegant and minimalist in Florida. We landed on Amelia island for a few different reasons.
After selecting the Omni Resort as our venue, one of the first planners on their list was Amanda. I shot her a text, within minutes she texted me back and we set up a phone call. I never continued down the vendor list, I immediately hired her.
I can go on and on about why you should hire a planner but something I want to make SUPER clear is that you have to hire a planner that gets you, gets your vibe and wants to make your dreams come to life. Amanda takes the time to get to know you and is available for you literally any moment of the day. She helped make a Pinterest wedding come to life and if I had to do it all over again, I would hire her 10 more times. Not only do I feel I had the best experience with her as my planner, but I gained a friend.
She thinks of EVERYTHING, first choices, second choices, budgets, vision, vibes, people, rain plans, you name it- she’s thinking of it for you.
I would HIGHLY recommend if you are getting married in the Jacksonville region, to shoot ananda a text or email. Even speaking to her for the first time makes your feel like someone gets you and will make your day so special.
I can’t thank Amanda enough and will cherish this relationship forever.

The result was a wedding day that ran SO smoothly. I hate to use the word perfect, because nothing is truly “perfect”, but having Amanda as our planner and day of coordinator resulted in a wedding day that can only be described as absolutely perfect!!
