"I can't even begin to express how thankful we are for Amanda and the White Ivy team. Leading up to the wedding, she was ALWAYS available to answer any questions I had when setting up things with vendors, she made sure we were on track with planning, and helped with any issues that arose. In the weeks leading up to the wedding, she was so on top of connecting with vendors, had an in-depth timeline for the day of the wedding, and made sure that - most of all - my husband and I were able to stay stress-free. The day of the wedding I was so relaxed and able to truly enjoy every moment because I knew Amanda had everything under control. Our wedding went off without a hitch and any issues that came up never reached me! Having Amanda allowed us to truly take in each moment of our big day and treasure each moment without stress. Amanda and White Ivy Events is a must-have for your wedding day!"
"I can't say enough great things about Amanda and the White Ivy team! Everything for our wedding day came together seamlessly from the time she took over 6 weeks before our wedding day. In the week leading up to our wedding, she made sure to check in with us and with all our vendors to make sure everyone was on the same page. She always assisted with every last minute crisis and everything I was stressing about, whether that meant calling vendors, taking emergency phone calls from us, or running-last minute errands. For example, our wedding day was very hot, and her and her team put together 400 fans for our guests two days before the wedding to make sure we could still have the outdoor ceremony we had been dreaming of and planning for. She made fantastic suggestions for finishing touches on decor and setup. On my wedding day, I was able to relax and enjoy my day with my bridal party and guests because she took care of everything from set up to tear down. Even our families and bridal party praised her work and professionalism. We both agree that hiring Amanda was the best decision we made for our wedding day!"
"My husband and I have nothing but the utmost praise for Amanda and her team. We would highly recommend White Ivy Events! Amanda and her team were professional, friendly, organized and creative. After our first meeting with Amanda, we walked away feeling confident and at ease. We knew we could trust her with our big day. Every detail was taken into consideration and was mapped out successfully. We felt so prepared going into our wedding weekend, thanks to Amanda. Then, upon walking into our venue the night before, we were floored by her ability to make our Pinterest board a reality. She nailed it! All throughout, she and her team made sure everything was taken care of and there wasn't a single thing we had to stress about. On the day of, Amanda and her team were fantastic! They checked in when needed, worked with all of our vendors flawlessly, and made sure our wedding went off without a hitch! We are SO thankful we put our trust in White Ivy Events and have already been spreading the good word to our newly engaged friends about Amanda! She is a MUST HAVE!"
Where do I even begin...?! My husband & I are so thankful we decided to use Amanda with White Ivy to coordinate our wedding. From our first Skype conversation I knew she was going to make our big day and the many months leading up to it stress free! She was prompt when responding to my (many) emails and was always willing to meet up to discuss details and brainstorm ideas. The day of she was a rock star!! From checking in with me in the morning at the salon, to helping get the venue set up and making sure all our vendors knew when and where they needed to be, she was in control and I had peace of mind. She made sure we stuck to our schedule and helped keep me relaxed knowing everything would go smoothly :) We had people coming up to us all night saying how wonderful she was. Amanda, without a doubt, made it possible for our day to go exactly as we'd envisioned it. I can't recommend her, and her team of awesome interns, enough! Our day was PERFECT and it wouldn't have been without her. If you're looking for a wedding coordinator who is collaborative, professional, knowledgeable, fun & incredibly sweet, Amanda is your girl!
My husband and I LOVE Amanda! We decided to hire her as a full-service coordinator for our wedding on 4/28, and this was an amazing decision. We worked together for about a year planning our wedding day. Amanda perfectly captured the vision we were working towards for our wedding and executed the day amazingly. She and her team brought amazing ideas to the table and helped sort out my crazy bride brain frequently. She was always excited to hear new plans or ideas and brainstorm with me. I had only lived in Iowa for a few months before starting to plan my wedding here, so I relied heavily on Amanda helping me find and pick vendors. Everyone we partnered with was great. However, if there ever were any minor issues with a vendor- she had no problem stepping up and standing firm for what we wanted. Her team worked very hard on our wedding day and my family didn't have to lift a finger. Amanda truly has a servant's heart and is definitely dedicated to making your wedding day be the best day possible!
"Hiring Amanda 3 months into trying to plan my own wedding was one of the best decisions I made. When we had our first scheduled call she was like a saving grace. She was so calm, organized, and sweet. After I hired her anytime I had a panic moment or needed to chat, I just set up a time to chat and she was so helpful through it all. When it got closer, she handled everything so perfectly. I had so many family members, bridesmaids, and other vendors comment to me about how awesome and organized she was. Her assistants were just as awesome as her. My wedding day was a dream come true thanks to her and her team. It was perfect with no issues and ran so smoothly. I thank her so much for making my life so much easier up until the wedding. I would highly recommend Amanda and White Ivy Events to anyone looking for the perfect stress free wedding weekend!"
"I can't say enough good things about Amanda! She pretty much knows everything there is to know about weddings! This is something I am so glad I did! She took away all the worry and stress! Not to mention she's a great person and you can really tell she has a passion for this!"
"I don't have enough nice things to say about Amanda and White Ivy Events! Amanda was there every step of my wedding planning process. She sat down with me, went over the plans I had made for my wedding day, and offered suggestions to make the day go smoother. There were multiple times where I called her just to ask "silly questions" and she was always willing to offer her advice and insights. On our wedding day, Amanda took care of everything. From being in charge of the timeline, to picking up flowers and checking in vendors, I didn't have to worry about a thing during the day. Having Amanda as my wedding planner allowed me to just be present during my wedding day, rather than having to worry about things going smoothly. Amanda was professional, helpful, positive, and a huge blessing to have around on my special day. Her expertise helped to make my wedding day exactly what I dreamed it would be!"
"Amanda was amazing! She has a great eye for detail and made sure that everyone was where they were supposed to be when they were supposed to be there. She took care of all of our vendors in a professional way. We were able to just enjoy the day because she was there overseeing the entire wedding. Details beginning with setup the day before the wedding through the rehearsal and preparation the day of the wedding all the way through the ceremony and the reception were covered by Amanda. Even our pastor commented on how much he appreciated her help in keeping everyone on task in a way that was not overbearing. Amanda was willing to go above and beyond the call of duty. All those little extra details were completely taken care of with a smile and a willingness that made me happy she was our wedding planner. I would highly recommend Amanda. As the mother of the bride I couldn't have been more satisfied. Meeting with her several times before the big day and having an itinerary that mapped out every detail moment-by-moment beginning with the day before the wedding all the way through the reception gave me such a sense of peace. Thank you Amanda!"
