Wedding reception toast
“There were small details I knew I’d forget that were important to me, but I couldn’t have executed them without someone navigating the full way. I was working full time, getting used to a new lifestyle with a fiancé. Planning a wedding is a lot of work… If I hadn’t had Amy, I don’t know what I would have done.”

“When researching wedding planners, our priority was to find a company that would collaborate closely with us throughout the process, embracing our style and making the process enjoyable. We found that with Amy Nichols Special Events. Amy is relaxed and welcoming, yet focused and professional. The exceptional quality of ANSE’s work is well worth the investment.”

“We interviewed a number of planners before hiring ANSE. We chose Amy because of her depth of knowledge and experience. We knew she and ANSE would be able to create the celebration we were envisioning. She is flexible, hard to rattle, and easy to work with, qualities that proved invaluable on our wedding day!”
