SURPASSED EVERY EXPECTATION
Amber from Oh My! Occasions surpassed every expectation I had throughout the wedding planning process. Experience: The planning tools she uses for seating charts, checklists, notes, etc. are AMAZING, esp for someone like me who has a hard time visualizing designs without seeing them in person. She sent us great examples of floor plan layouts, menu & signage options, linen comparisons, etc. Although our wedding in Charleston, SC (not Amber’s typical FL location), she was flawless in execution of every detail. I feel confident that she could plan a tropical wedding in Alaska if desired! Services: We knew that a full service planning package was necessary. Her customized “to do” lists kept us moving through planning stages at a manageable pace & helped us feel like we were still involved in the planning process without making us feel overwhelmed. It was SO helpful that Amber was the point of contact when deciding on vendors. I placed a lot of importance on being involved in the selection of vendors. Amber helping to weed through florists, hair/makeup artists, bakers, caterers, etc. to provide me with concise lists to make my selections from was just what I needed. She is an excellent last minute seamstress as well! When my wedding gown strap broke between pictures & the ceremony, Amber saved the day with her needle and thread! She stitched me back together & it held all night. Punctuality/professionalism/personality: I could always count on Amber to be on time for meetings. Since we had a lot of phone “meetings”, I loved that she would always call a few mins early or stay on the call a few mins late (or both) in order to discuss any questions I had. She is so friendly and genuine; she can immediately make you feel as though you have known her forever. That being said, she will “go to bat” for you in an EXTREMELY professional manner if needed when it comes to negotiating prices, nailing down timelines, or just generally communicating with vendors. Simple honesty: This may be the one of the most important pieces to consider when choosing your planner, and Amber NAILED it. Inevitably, you will get to a point in planning when you can’t make a decision or a decision needs to be made quickly. Amber ALWAYS offered her honest, experienced opinion. One example: I adored Amber’s unique suggestion for me to walk down the aisle to my groom (before guests were in the seats) for our “first look” in order preserve that experience but still provide ample photo time prior to the ceremony. However, when the BIG DAY came, the ceremony site was VERY muddy! My heart still wanted that walk down the aisle, but my head told me that was NOT the best option & I was torn. I turned to Amber & asked what she would do if she were me (a question I asked a lot during planning). She told me she would opt for an alt “first look” site in front of a massive tree w/ gorgeous Spanish moss. I trusted her completely & it turned out like a fairytale– she was so RIGHT! Avg response time: Saved the best for last! Amber was INCREDIBLY quick to respond to texts, calls, emails. There was never a moment I was frustrated or hoped she had responded quicker. I couldn’t have asked for better service! She made me feel like mine was the only wedding she was planning even though she had numerous other events to juggle!
Amber will make you say OH MY!
To put into a few simple words how amazing Amber is would not even begin to do her justice. We knew she was the one (to plan the wedding!) immediately after we received her very first email with availability and packages. We loved all the personal touches she took the time to include, from our names on the information package to even a picture of our venue. Keep in mind that this was an inquiry type of communication only, wayyyyy before we even discussed going forward with the contract, and it mesmerized us that she took the time from her busy schedule to add personal touches to that. Another one of Amber’s infinite amazing qualities was how incredibly fast she responded to our questions; it really made us wonder if she had an army of Amber clones working with her. My husband (oh my!) and I are both accountants with Type A personalities, so you can already imagine how insane our emails must have always been (they sometimes included Excel spreadsheets…), and Amber conquered them with ease, bullet point by bullet point. As if it could get even better, the planning tools Amber uses for seating charts, floor plans, notes, to do’s, etc. are out of this world. They are extremely easy to use, and saved us a lot of time and headaches. We assigned tables and also specific seats to each guests, and with the seating chart tool it was a breeze. The checklists and to do’s really helped keep us on track, as they were very detailed, and, you bet, tailored to us specifically. We loved how organized, energized, and professional she always was. She always made us feel like we were her top priority, and even though we selected the partial planning package, she sent us monthly reminders and was extremely generous with offering her wisdom and knowledge way before it was her turn to officially take over. By the time we met her in person, we felt like we were long time friends; and this made us feel extremely comfortable leading up to our big day. Amber went above and beyond every step of the way to make sure our dream wedding, not only became a reality, but surpassed our expectations. We would be honored (and can’t wait!) to work with Amber again! Too soon for a vow renewal?
A Valuable Addition to Your Wedding Planning and Day
There are no words to describe the depth of Amber’s professionalism and dedication to delivering an ‘Oh My! Occassion.’ Hence, a 5-star rating is insufficient to measure the outstanding quality of her efforts. If you are looking for someone that is visionary, reliable, detailed, methodical, communicative, and creatively brilliant, Amber is the person you need. She will provide you with proper guidance, which comes with her years of experience in the industry, and assist you with embracing your unique love story. Additionally, Amber is a genuine, thoughtful and kind-hearted individual that is pleasant to work with. We will always appreciate her for providing us with diligent assistance and oversight before and on our wedding day.
BEST WEDDING EVER!
If you need a planner for your wedding, look no further than Amber. I planned my wedding from Texas and knew I needed help from someone local. I booked the package where Amber and her team are supposed to started organizing your vendors etc a few months out from your wedding but I got much more than that. From day one, Amber let me know she was there to help me through the rest of my planning process. I learned during wedding planning that I am a bit of a control freak and Amber was perfect for me to bounce ideas off of and help me choose things if I was on the fence. Amber let me know she would be on maternity leave during my wedding and had a handful of ambassadors at my disposal. All of them were amazing! With that said, even up to the day, Amber was texting and emailing me making sure everything was good to go and armed her team with everything they needed to execute – to be honest, she never wasn’t there to help even while she was supposed to take it easy with the baby on the way! I can’t speak more highly of all of the ambassadors that helped that day. Gina was absolutely amazing and Jennifer & Jessica were also so sweet and helpful! It was truly an amazing day and I can’t imagine having that wedding without all of their help and support!
Amber is wonderful! She made our wedding day one we will never forget! Her ability to bring your vision to life, the close team of vendors she has in her back pocket, and the respect she has in the industry will only make your experience that much better! We LOVE Amber!!
Amber is amazing!
Amber is nothing short of AMAZING!!
I have never been more relieved and happy to have hired Amber and the Oh My Occasions team for my wedding day! Not only is she is professional, kind, and patient — but she really is on top of her game!
All of our wants, needs and concerns were addressed and taken care of leading up to the wedding and on our wedding day. She was available and responsive every single day! She never made us feel like we were a bother or annoying. Amber had helpful advice and insight on what happens and what is needed on a wedding day — things you simply don’t think about or know about if you’re the first one in your family to get married.
Both my mom and I (who are worriers, and very type A) were able to relax and enjoy the wedding knowing Amber had all the behind the scenes and little details taken care of. Having my mom able to talk with our family and friends, and enjoy every little moment of our wedding was extremely important to me. I knew that if there was no Amber, my mom would have taken on that role and responsibility of making sure everything was done and handled so that I wouldn’t have to. There was no anxiety and the day was stress free due to Amber!!!
She goes above and beyond to make sure your wedding day goes without a hitch! When I had told her I had only eaten a couple pineapple slices the morning of my wedding, Amber came back in the room minutes later with grilled chicken. She cut it up into pieces and literally fed me while I got my makeup done! If that’s not dedication to ensuring the bride and groom are taken care, I don’t know what is!!!
Thank you Amber!!!!!!!!!!!!
Amber, we love you!
No words to describe how amazing Amber is. Having Amber allowed us to focus on the fun parts of wedding planning because we knew she had everything else under control. What separates her from the rest is how PERSONALIZED she makes everything. She somehow figures out what makes you unique as a couple and then incorporates that into the wedding. On top of all that, she is extremely thorough and detail oriented, and always goes the extra mile to make things perfect. We would highly recommend her to any and everyone looking for a great planner.
The BEST wedding decision we made.
There are not sufficient words to describe how much Amber’s work meant to us. She is professional, timely, likable, honest, and FUN. From the moment we met her, it was like we were family. There were a few times when I was unsure of myself regarding a location, my dress, and seating arrangements, and she offered expert advice while also taking my concerns seriously. It was like having a friend, planner, therapist, and GO GETTER all in one package. She has amazing relationships with countless vendors, who all spoke extremely highly of her as well. I cannot recommend her enough, and I would choose her over and over and over again!
Best Wedding Planning Team!!
Amber and her team are 100% perfection! I truly can’t say enough good things about the ladies at Oh My Occasions. Their organization, professionalism and attention to detail is unparalleled. Amber was always so quick to answer all of my questions (even after hours and over the weekend) and is thorough and detailed in all of her responses. On the day of our wedding I was able to truly enjoy the day and be present with my friends and family because I had complete faith that Amber and her team had everything covered. From the moment they arrived on our wedding day, one of her team members Jessica did not leave my side. At the end of the night Amber coordinated delivery of all of our items to our suite and stored decorations with the hotel, they take care of everything so you don’t even have to think about it! They made everything so seamless and helped put together the best day of our lives!
I CAN’T SAY ENOUGH GOOD THINGS!
Amber was amazing from day one! Incredibly organized and always on top of every detail. She sent me monthly reminders to keep my planning on track even before it was her turn to take over. I would have paid 4x more because she was incredible. She has different planning packages available and will work with you to meet your individual planning needs and budget. Having her in charge allowed me to be completely care free and able to enjoy my special day. I have already recommended her to all of my friends who are getting married, and can’t say enough good things about her and her team!
If we could give Amber and the Oh My Occasions team more than 5 stars we would. It was THE best decision to go with Amber and the Oh My Occasions team. She is so sweet, super easy to talk to and extremely attentive. She handled ALL the communication with all our vendors/venue and was the main point of contact. We can’t stress enough how extremely professional and organized she was/is. We also can’t stress enough how important having a wedding planner was in general! Amber made sure we stayed on schedule and created an AMAZING personalized checklist that sent you emails to remind you when something was “due”. She was seriously our right hand and go-to during wedding planning. On the day of the wedding, Amber made sure everything was executed perfectly and that the day flowed smoothly with everyone staying on time with hair/makeup, first look photos, getting all the groomsmen/bridal party dressed and ready, bridal party pictures, family pictures, all the way to the ceremony & reception. We didn’t have to stress one bit on our wedding day. My wife and I were able to enjoy, and we had such an amazing time!
DON’T EVEN CALL ANOTHER WEDDING PLANNER (SERIOUSLY)
WHERE do I even begin?! Being an Oh My Occasions bride was downright dreamy. I’m a little bit of a type-A freak, and I thought I could handle planning our wedding on my own from out of state. One of my friends told me to consider hiring a day-of coordinator, and OH MY GOD I am so glad I did. Amber and her team thought of everything (like what time the cake should be brought in for optimal eating temperature, no joke). If I didn’t hire Amber, I would’ve been stressing out all day! Amber and her team truly helped my husband and I ENJOY every second of our wedding day—we even got to eat, which is pretty much unheard of. I wish we could have our wedding day again, just so I could relive how perfect everything was.
SIMPLY THE BEST
We met Amber on November 10th (her birthday) and exactly 60 days before our wedding. What can I say…… simply the best! My husband and I interrogated her for a good hour or so, and before we knew it, we were sharing a piece of chocolate cake and saying yes, yes, yes, we found the one (wedding planner, that it!). Let me just start off by saying weddings are NOT easy work. At times it can be overwhelming and stressful, however, Amber was exactly everything I needed. From her professionalism, to her punctuality, to her kind demeanor, she was always one step ahead. She was punctual, responsive, uplifting, detailed and always positive. It’s great to have someone help you with all the wedding preparation but more importantly, it’s imperative to have someone who will execute your vision all while making the chaos behind the scenes appear seemingness. Funny enough, I asked my very busy husband to be a part of this review and I only expected a few words but instead he provided a complete review of his own….
Wow! From A-Z Amber and Oh my Occasion just had us covered. Let me start by saying that I was 100% against the idea of a wedding planner. I believed it was an extra unnecessary or luxury expense that we can surely do without! All I can say is, I ended up being Amber biggest fan! Since our first meeting Amber sat with us and listened intently to what we wanted to accomplish. She took copious notes and paid attention to every detail. She really wanted to learn about us and share in our vision of what we wanted for our special night. After taking our information she started right away bridging the gaps between ideas and vendors. She would offer several options all within our price point and more importantly all very reliable and professional. She was with my wife at every turn guiding the way or simply listening to her run through ideas…. some crazy, some sane! Ha. I must admit, she had some late night questions. She would simply email her and be amazed and how quickly she responded. Till this day we receive compliments on all the attention to details at out wedding. Funny enough, I, Mr. Frugal himself, have blindly recommended Amber to all my friends. Thanks, Amber.
NEVER HAD ANYTHING TO WORRY ABOUT
As we all know the groom of the wedding typically does not really know what is happening throughout the whole process. And my now husband even to said after everything was done and I arrived at the venue ready to walk and I was amazing at the countless hours and thousands of details that had to be done which gave me a whole new respect. Me being the bride she made my dreams become a reality, while making it easy. Along the way many people asked me “aren’t you ready for the process to be done? It’s so stressful the only day that is fun is the day of the wedding, and some times that day isn’t even worth it.” And every time they would say that it really made me wonder, how? I literally never had to worry about anything, all I did was tell her my vision, budget, goals, yes or no answers and any thoughts I had about anything and with that she worked MAGIC. We got endless compliments on what a great job Amber did and how fun/beautiful/classy our wedding was. My husband was hesitant about having a wedding at all at first but now, we can’t thank her and her team enough because it was truly a night we will never forget or ever top. Amber completely exceeded our expectations and it was a night to remember.
LOVED AND CHERISHED US
Where do I start? Amber and her entire team are outstanding. I looked at her during our wedding and said, “I don’t know how you did it but there’s not ONE thing missing, not one hitch or one detail left out.” I first connected with Amber via phone and knew immediately she was “the one.” From that moment forward, she was organized, detailed and proud to be our planner. I have to say, our wedding was hands-down the most gorgeous wedding I’ve ever attended and I know it was not an easy task. Amber outdid herself and I’d recommend her to anyone, anytime. Amber, thank you for loving us and cherishing our wedding as if it were your own. We revel in all the details and loved every second of working with you!!!
BEST INVESTMENT IN OUR WEDDING
To say that Amber was amazing is honestly an understatement. I truly 100% don’t know how in the world I could have done my wedding day without her. Amber helped me the month leading up to my wedding and the day of and she took care of EVERYTHING! I started listing all the things she did for me and I reached my character limit. What I will say is Amber takes care of anything and everything you could think of. She is professional, understanding, thorough, understands you unique wedding vibe, makes you feel like you are the only bride she is working with and thinks of things you haven’t even thought of yet that need to be done. Amber is the person to recognize a problem and then fix it before you even know there was a problem. She has a back up plan for every back up plan. The #1 thing that sticks out to me is Amber took care of everything at the end of the night. I went to my reception, danced my butt off, enjoyed my friends and family and went back to my hotel room exhausted to find all my gifts and decorations in my room organized and waiting for me. It was so nice to not have to worry about one single thing on my wedding day from the minute I woke up to minute I fell asleep. I highly highly highly recommend Amber for your wedding day. You will NOT regret it. She was by far the BEST investment I made for my wedding and was the #1 vendor I was most pleased with. I can’t imagine my special day without her.
DESTINATION PLANNING MADE EASY
As New Yorkers we had no idea about where or how to plan anything in Miami. Finding Amber was truly a blessing. She was always on time and on top of things, which tremendously helped us with planning our wedding in just six months. Every bump in the road Amber was calmly there to help us out. She was awesome to use just one word. We strongly recommend Amber and her team if you are looking for a smooth less stressful experience. Amber we can’t thank you enough. Love the new Mr. & Mrs. Franco <3
SHE WILL GO ABOVE AND BEYOND
I cannot give Amber and her team enough praise! I got married in January 2018 and had a blast all because of her. She is completely organized, reliable and flexible. She will listen to your ideas as well as lead you in the right direction if you have no idea what you are doing (totally my case). She will go above and beyond to make your day special and she really puts 100% of her heart into your special day. Thank you Amber for making my day amazing! Future Brides, I completely recommend you contact Amber and have her help you make your day as special as mine was!
