Amy Nichols was our wedding planner and more importantly she is a family friend. At first I was a little reluctant about hiring a friend, but I was so wrong. She was professional, smart and talented beyond our wildest dreams. She guided us through some sticky moments and did it with grace and humor. The whole weekend went smoothly and the day of wedding was beautiful and well orchestrated. After seeing her in action I love and respect her even more. (Mother of the Bride)

Amy was wonderful! We had a somewhat tricky venue, which Amy provided invaluable help negotiating. She provided wonderful vendor recommendations (and just a few choice ones in each category, so we weren't overwhelmed), and we were extremely happy with everyone she referred us to. She's really sweet, fun, and flexible and made the planning process easy. She provided lots of spreadsheets and other goodies to help keep us organized. But Amy shines the most the month of - I had almost zero stress because she was so on top of everything. She provided great advice in negotiating some tricky etiquette and family situations, and then executed the day of completely flawlessly.

Amy Nichols is fabulous! Choosing Amy to plan and organize our daughter's June 2015 wedding was the best decision we made. Amy was invaluable in helping us plan the perfect wedding. She was a delight to work with! She listened to what we wanted and helped us create the wedding day of my daughter's dreams. Her vendor recommendations were invaluable. She has incredible resources of gorgeous venues and extraordinarily talented florists, photographers, musicians, officiants, and more to share with you. Her attention to detail is incredible. She draws up a list of tasks which need to be completed so nothing is forgotten or overlooked. She is highly organized and kept us on our time schedule. On the day of the wedding she and her wonderful team handled everything! We showed up and had a fun, stress free time. Our friends are still talking about the wedding, saying it was one of the best ones they ever attended. I know we couldn't have done it without Amy's incredible talent. We HIGHLY recommend her.

Thank you so so much for helping to make our wedding absolutely perfect. We literally could not have done it without your help throughout the planning process and especially the day of the event. I had no concerns or worries all day and I know that was in large part due to your organization and involvement with all of the details. Thank you so much. Justin and I couldn't have had a better weekend. Everything was exactly as we envisioned... and FUN! We can't wait to see Stephanie's pictures so we can relive it all.

Thank you again.

We worked with Amy for our wedding in 2012 and could not have been happier. I had a good idea of what I wanted, but Amy knew all the right vendors to work with to make my vision a reality, which really made the planning easy. I take organization very seriously and Amy is very well organized. She gave me timelines to keep me on track throughout the planning process, and gave me a push when I got stuck on a decision so we wouldn't fall behind on the timeline. She had excellent detailed timelines for the day-of, and made sure everyone knew where they needed to be and when, and kept everything on timeline the day-of. She has a wonderfully calm and collected presence, exactly what you want from someone who is helping you coordinate a big event. Amy is truly everything you could ask for in a wedding planner!

Rebekah + Vince

We cannot say enough to express how grateful we are that our daughter, Rebekah, and Vince selected your agency as their wedding planner and that Janice was chosen to work with the bridal couple. Janice's work ethic is astonishing. She is amazingly organized, thoroughly professional, and totally competent. We never saw her sitting down the entire four days at Holman; her quiet presence was everywhere. Janice had to be under considerable pressure at times, but, throughout, she always maintained a pleasant, relaxed, courteous, friendly demeanor. We're all detail people, but Janice set a new standard for us and had any detail covered. We know that she had to step in on several occasions to handle delicate situations, and she resolved those situations quickly, effectively and tactfully. As we've said before, this wedding could not have come off as well as it did without her, and it was a huge success, meeting our expectations and going beyond. Thank you; thank you, Janice, and thank you, Amy, for a job so well done. (Mother and Father of the Bride)

When my husband (then boyfriend) proposed, I immediately suggested that we elope. He rightly wanted to have a wedding. Since I was reluctant to have all the pomp and circumstance (I just wanted to be married, not have a wedding), I hired Amy Nichols Special Events to coordinate for me. I am SO GLAD I did! Amy did site visits with pros and cons of each, negotiated rates, and had recommendations for excellent vendors in all price points. She helped us turn a traditional venue into something that reflected our more playful sense of style and made it all look so easy. I really couldn't have gotten married without Amy. One of my favorite parts of the night was when, after a few hours of dancing, she came over to me and whispered that she'd put some flip flops underneath my chair for me to change into which was heavenly. She has this level of attention to detail and our comfort and enjoyment was her number one priority. Thank you, Amy!

Dear Amy, I’d like to extend my sincere gratitude for all your help! We started playing with ideas early on and it was beautiful to see everything come together flawlessly. Last Saturday was the most magical day of my life thus far and I will never forget who helped me a great deal. What a journey it is to plan an event, especially a wedding. I couldn’t have done it without your guidance. The vendors you brought to me were a perfect match and created a flawless day.  My sincere thanks! All my best, Angela.   {photo by Blonde Tulip}

Dear Amy, Thank you for all your patience and understanding in the months leading up to our wedding. You are really a sweetheart and from the get-go, your enthusiasm for putting our wedding together matched my own. You were really into all the nutty details but also the sound of reason when I needed it the most and I'm certain it was your genuine interest and sound advice that made it all come together so nicely. I'm so glad that our paths crossed and we got to have you as our wonderful planner. We couldn't have asked for a better fit. Thank you!

Amy Nichols did an amazing job coordinating our wedding in June of 2009. She is professional, talented, and has an easy-going, calming personality. She acted as a partial coordinator for our wedding, but her services went above and beyond that. She provided great recommendations for vendors and acted as a liaison between all of vendors throughout the planning process. The planning of the wedding seemed too easy based on what Ryan and I had heard from others, which we appreciated very, very much. Our wedding was so beautiful, fun and special and we thank Amy from the bottoms of our hearts for that.

I just wanted to express my heartfelt Thank You for all you did at Jeff’ and Christina’s weekend wedding. For us, you were a calming influence in what can seem a hectic time for people such as ourselves who are not used to events such as that. I appreciated your patience, and always felt like I could turn to you for answers. We especially would like to say thanks for helping get my sister-in-law and her husband down the hill when they had to leave suddenly, and for your help with my elderly parents. I admire the job that you do in helping people to make their dreams come true. I’m a worrier and a detail person, and again wish to say thanks for helping us through it all.

Thanks for your help, Amy, and I'm sure the rest of your day was as successful as the start. The shower was really enjoyable and went without a hitch. I appreciate how effortless you made the whole process for all of us - truly a luxury! Donna and Jason seemed to have a wonderful time, which is the most important thing.  We are certainly enjoying the gorgeous floral arrangements and will have many fond memories of the evening long after the flowers have gone.
