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!"
