Best decision!  Working with Amanda and her team was the best decision I made while planning my wedding.
Jeremy Shepler Married couple on 22 Sep 2023
This was our second wedding.  It was relatively small.  We got this…until we didn’t.  I can remember the day my wife called me telling me she felt overwhelmed as everyone was calling her and needing her time to figure out the smallest of details.  Our Florist, who was a nanny for my kids years ago, strongly recommended Amanda for a month of planner.  I was skeptical at first until I realized this was the best decision we could make to relieve the stress fr om our big day.   She is a true professional who has so much energy, experience, knowledge, understanding of the business and tremendous interpersonal skills. She quickly gathered the details of our vendors and began to take the lead.  She literally saved our day and made it look so effortless.  Her attention to detail is unparalleled.  Our day of schedule or “show flow” was detailed so everyone (vendors and us) knew exactly what was going on.  I think we have already recommended her 2-3 times…and when your vendors tell you that was the best planner they’ve ever worked with….its a sign.  To say she made us smile through Chaos…is a sever understatement.  She is absolutely amazing.  If you’re lucky enough to find her wh ere she doesn’t have a wedding already booked, book her immediately.

Amanda was honestly the best decision I made while wedding planning. Her month of coordination was above and beyond what I expected. From going over details I didn't even think of to her day of attentiveness Amanda was truly incredible. Wedding planning is stressful and the day of even more but Amanda made it so I didn't even have to think about being stressed. Even following up long after the wedding, cant go wrong when Amanda is involved!

I love working with Amanda! Her timelines are so organized and easy to follow, which makes my job as a wedding vendor 1000x easier because I know exactly when and where I need to be at all times. She facilitated all discussions between myself and her clients and made for a truly memorable wedding experience! Can't wait to work together again!!

There will never be enough words to describe how amazing Amanda and Smiling Through Chaos are. We worked with Amanda for almost two years planning our wedding. During that time she was not only or wedding planner, but our cheerleader, therapist, advocate, and friend. While I know she has tons of brides and events, she always made me feel like I was the only one, giving me her full attention. She goes above and beyond in all aspects of planning. She is accessible and available to you. I’m not sure she ever sleeps! Amanda gave us access to vendors we would have never found, who all executed our vision perfectly. She is so well respected in the wedding vendor community and was able to get us discounts and negotiate pricing and contracts for us. Within the first week she saves us over 7k. Amazing! We completely trusted her creative process, and the results were STUNNING. There was never a moment where I felt stressed or that Amanda didn’t have things handled. She allowed us to truly enjoy the process and our wedding day. Thanks to her we were able to be in the moment and not worrying about the behind the scenes stuff. Amanda is incredibly hard working, detail oriented, and organized. We had so many people who told us it was the best wedding they had ever been to, and that was all thanks to Amanda! Wedding planning is a full time job, don’t let yourself do it alone! Finding Amanda was the best thing that could have happened to us and I could not recommend her more!!!

Amanda helped me realize my vision for my wedding and I cannot recommend her enough! She gave great suggestions and ideas for parts of planning I was unsure of, meanwhile supporting my decisions and wishes for aspects that I wanted to be included. She assisted both the wedding party and vendors stick to the timeline. Any time anyone had questions, we went to Amanda. She maintained peace between any guests with tension and made the night run smoothly. My wedding was wonderful and I owe it all to her. AMANDA IS AMAZING!!!!!!

Amanda and her team were an absolute pleasure to work with. Going into wedding planning my wife and I didn't think we needed a wedding planner as we are quite organized and type A personalities however about 2 months before the wedding we decided it would be useful to have some extra help. Short story is I am soooooo glad we did because I do not think my wife and I would have been as relaxed and zen come the big day. Amanda paid very close attention to our needs really helped us figure out some of the smaller items we had yet to plan leading up to the day. We had multiple phone calls and emails to discuss everything from the agenda for the day of to table-card placements and Amanda made herself very accessible to us (which in the wedding world is not very common). Amanda made us a super detailed oriented spreadsheet (down to the minute!) detailing how the day would go. She helped us create a list of all the items we needed to remember to bring and while these things might seem minor they are super important because the last few weeks leading up to the wedding were quite hectic and stressful and having these items checked off was one less thing for my wife and I to stress about. Smiling Through Chaos allowed us to enjoy our big day to the fullest. Amanda also helped to review all of our contracts and communicated with our vendors to make sure everybody was on the same page in terms of deliverables and timing.
I cant thank her and her staff enough for enabling us to have the best day ever. I truly do not think we could have planned such a great event without her help.

Amazing Event Planner that'll make your event magical!
I had the pleasure of working with Amanda recently and she was an absolute pleasure! I could tell how much she cared for her clients and how above and beyond she would go to make sure every event was exactly what her clients were looking for. If you're in need of an event planner, look no further! 5 stars across the board.

Amanda and the Smiling Through Chaos team made planning and executing my wedding such a seamless and enjoyable experience. From her creative ideas to her impeccably detailed timeline, Amanda's professionalism and skill in party planning is unmatched. She always responds super quickly, is extremely approachable and definitely someone anyone would be lucky to work with. My husband and I cannot stop talking about how helpful and important she was for our big day. We highly recommend Smiling Through Chaos for any wedding or party planning need!

Amanda did a nice job putting the finishing touches on our children’s’ wedding. She helped coordinating vendors and to resolve last minute issues with transportation and flowers that could have had a disastrous impact on the wedding. The event was perfect in every way and we appreciated the part Amanda played to ensure such a successful outcome.
