Can't Rain on My Parade!Reviewed on 12/03/2010 Lindsey S
Signature Events (Amy Piper) served as the wedding day director for my wedding. I seriously don't know how we would have survived the day without her! Having Amy there made all of the potential disasters, such as the large amount of rain making its way into the tent, into small bumps in the road that were, from our eyes, easily solved. We were able to enjoy the day and did not have to worry about anything. The day was absolutely perfect and we owe a lot of it to Amy and Signature Events! Amy was also helpful leading up to the wedding. From the band and photographer referrals (both of which were fantastic!) to help selecting the linens and general assistance with any question I had, she was an invaluable resource! I would strongly recommend Amy and Signature Events to other brides as Amy was a superwoman and our wedding would not have been the same without her!
Recommend all the timeReviewed on 12/02/2010 Drew D
What can we say, Amy was the best! So much that when our friends get engaged we recommend her as the first part of the process. Actually, she helped with other family members weddings too. Amy is like your insurance policy but for a wedding as she covers all the details every step of the way. She thinks of the things you don't and wouldn't think of. Her communication and attention to detail is top notch leading up to the wedding and during the day. She takes on a role that allows her to blend into the wedding having people ask, 'who is that?' , not knowing she is the one orchestrating the event behind the scenes. Amy worked well with the vendors and coordinating the logistics of the day which took all the stress away from us so we could enjoy the day. This was one of the best decisions we made and will continue to recommend Amy to others in the future.
Simply the best!Reviewed on 12/02/2010 Dave R
As a professional mobile DJ, I often tell my clients, "A great coordinator really will make a HUGE difference in all of your wedding planning from start to finish." I say this having worked with many in-house function managers as well as independent coordinators, and knowing that the personalized, fine attention to detail that every bride and groom deserve will truly make the whole wedding experience less stressful and more enjoyable. I’ve worked with a few coordinators who have gotten the job done, many who have successfully put on a wonderful production, but Signature Events has truly earned a spot in my book as the very best. Amy and I met while working a wedding together in the fall of 2008. We clicked instantly, and I have had the pleasure of working with this truly wonderful and thoughtful planner for a number of occasions since. I've always been amazed at Amy’s ability to coordinate plans between four, five, even up to ten different vendors at the same time, all while wearing a smile and keeping the newlyweds close by, making sure everything is just right. Even when the sun has (literally) turned to torrential downpours, or any unexpected quirks have popped up, Amy and her staff have kept the show running without a single bump. It’s no surprise to see Signature Events’ clients develop such personal relationships with Amy, as I’ve never seen a coordinator work so closely with a client throughout the entire process of planning for that once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Beyond expectationsReviewed on 12/01/2010 emily b
My family and I have worked with Amy on 3 weddings. I have been the mother of the groom at 2, and the bride at one. I can honestly say I do not know what we would have done without her. Amy's sense of style, attention to detail and most importantly, her ability to listen to her client's vision and dreams have made each event a special, memorable and very different experience. Her standard of professionalsim and work ethic surpasses what I would have imagined, and goes beyond my expectations.(which is hard to accomplish) There has not been a soul who has not come up to us and told us that our events have been the best they have ever experienced.
Grooms MotherReviewed on 12/01/2010 Marilyn S
My experience with Signature Events (Amy Piper) was totally amazing!!! Amy and her team are very experienced, organized, creative and also very sensitive to the needs and desires of the bride and groom including the parents. I was so excited and pleased with Amy Piper that my husband and I have decided to build an old barn on our property in NH for weddings and other events that Amy Piper and her team of Signature Events would plan and run. We hope others are able to enjoy the wonderful experience we had with Amy and of course the beautiful views of the mountains and lake that we so much appreciate. I highly recommend Amy Piper as a "Wedding Planner". She is the BEST!
She's The BestReviewed on 11/30/2010 David T
I have worked with numerous wedding planners in my 30 years of officiating weddings. No one compares with Amy Piper and her team at Signature Events. Brides have commented to me "She has answers to questions before I think of of asking!" She is the most resourceful and detail-oriented planner with whom I've worked. Families feel secure and their wishes honored with her. If you want an organized and effective celebration, you cannot go wrong with Amy. She's a creative, accomplished pro!
The best in New HampshireReviewed on 11/30/2010 Paul C
I own and operate a very large entertainment agency here in NH. I've worked with Amy Piper from Signature Events for the last 15 years. I must say Amy is a true professional and always gets rave reviews from all of my clients that I've had her work with. Whether the event is out on an Island or in a remote area on land Amy always gets the job done and done right. I highly recommend Amy to anybody that wants their event done right.
Flawless ExecutionReviewed on 11/30/2010 Celeste s
Amy and ImpressMeDesigns.com began working with one another about 2 years ago and we hit it off instantly. Her attention to detail is flawless and her ultimate goal is to create the perfect event suited to the couple. We are always happy to create custom wedding invitations for Amy's clients as she is so wonderful to work with and presents a clear vision.
Dining By Design endorses Signature EventsReviewed on 11/29/2010 Randy B
We have had the pleasure of working with Amy Piper of Signature Events since 2006. Amy’s attention to detail is second to none. She maintains outstanding relationships with a fine array of carefully chosen vendors. Her ability to manage a tight timeline and to adapt to every situation makes for an unrivaled experience in NH. There are many facets to each event that “someone” needs to handle… and that “someone” should be Amy Piper. A professional event planner is key to a successful, stress free event. Chef Randy Brisson and his wife Alison of Dining by Design Personal Chef Services both highly recommend Signature Events.
Service, service, serviceReviewed on 11/29/2010 Kirsten S
After having grown up in the hospitality industry and then entering it myself (and starting my career at the Waldorf=Astoria in NYC no less!), I can say I have seen it all. And having been the one to provide service my entire career, I also expect fantastic service in return. Signature Events far exceeded every expectation I had in every category. Amy Piper is knowledgeable about every vendor, business, trend, and 'go-to' both in her area and the greater Northeast in the wedding industry. Amy takes the time and makes it her business to be involved with local events and tradeshows so she can always be current on the latest and greatest. Due to her interest in the industry, Amy is creative. Amy has a solution for everything and a fantastic idea when it seems they've all run out. She has someone in mind for every detail, a special touch for every table, and a twinkle in her eye as she listens to a bride at a consultation and begins to get a sense for what that bride really wants. Amy is fantastic at information-sharing and relationship building, but most importantly, strikes that delicate balance of reassuringly holding the hand of a bride while also sometimes delivering less than ideal news (and we all know that a bride is not the perfect candidate to often share that news with!). Amy is always professional, straightforward, and practically minded, keeping both budgetary restrictions as well as a couple's vision in mind when making suggestions. I will say, however, that Amy's strongest quality is her communication style - both the efficiency as well as speed. I do not think I ever waited for a response from Amy for more than 30 minutes in the 15 months between when we decided to work with her and my wedding day - a fact that is still incredible to me. Amy is quite literally all over it. She is passionate about her job, she very clearly loves what she does, and it shows in a huge way. To those of you evaluating Signature Events, I encourage you to reach out to anyone she has worked with to ask for feedback. I have not spoken to any other of her clients but I can tell you with 100% assurance that Amy would be endorsed, praised and lauded by any one of them. As someone who has been there, it is very easy to dissatisfy someone on the biggest day of their lives - so to speak of someone who pulls it all together with grace, a smile, and a clipboard in hand - Amy Piper is by far the Best I have encountered.
the best expirence of my big day:Reviewed on 11/29/2010 Kate P
Dear Piper, I would like to officially thank you for literally making our wedding day the best day of my life even; if the first hurricane in 70 years hit New England on September 27, 2008. Anyone who says rain on your wedding day is good luck never got to unpack the soaking wet moldy lanterns or not have a lit path to the entrance of their reception or not even see the view from the tent! But those little details are nothing compared to the numerous wonderful things that did fall into place that day. Thanks to you, everyone had a dinner seat, the boys had boutonnieres and the flow of the wedding stayed in line to the minute. You had it all that day. You took charge, you were organized, disciplined, reliable, dependable, honest and as my dad likes to say, stern and yet kind. You’re personality is perfect for your position and there is no one else I’d rather have with me that day behind the scenes taking care of everything. Thank you for being my go to girl that day. My sister still says; “Where is Amy Piper?” when things aren’t staying on track. You will go down in the history of my family as the one person who held it all together, the glue if you will, so that everyone could enjoy themselves. I know you thought I was kidding when I asked you to come visit us in Colorado, but trust me, you cannot beat the Rocky Mountains and we have a spare bedroom! We don’t even need to do it on a holiday, although, you are pretty much an angel in my eyes and I would gladly spend Christmas with you. Another thing I would like to thank you for was for the specialty lighting company and the gobo that went on the dance floor. I literally could not have done it without you. I’m so happy we decided to go the extra mile and spend a little bit of money and get the lanterns lit through the same electrical switch to create mood lighting. This was again, another one of your great ideas. I can’t wait to see the pictures you took and I’d like to thank you again for everything. I don’t really want to send this yet because I know I’ll think of so much more stuff to thank you for right after I hit send! ~ Love you, Kate ~
Thanks Amy!Reviewed on 11/29/2010 Meghan C
Amy worked so hard to pull everything off for our 3-day wedding weekend off without a hitch and people are still raving about our wedding. She did an amazing job! Thank you for making it a memorable day for both of us.
Couldn't have done it without them!Reviewed on 11/27/2010 caroline t
From beginning to very end, Amy went above and beyond to make our wedding amazing. It was a complex wedding...which involved boats and multiple venues...and Amy pulled it off without a hitch. Her gentle suggestions in the planning process were helpful without being pushy and her good relationships with many of our vendors were invaluable. Even the day of, Amy was even able to tell me "so-and-so doesn't have a seat" (my fault) without it sounding like a crisis...and she fixed it right away. Her assistant, Deena, was also great the day of, making sure everyone was headed in the right direction. The cost was a relatively small part of the wedding total, but probably the best investment we made because my mom and I could totally enjoy the big day and let all the details go. Thank you Amy and Deena!
