You can be the judge on the funny part. She also plays well with others and is known for bringing it all together when Mom gets fussy, when the flower girl gets mad, and when prima donna vendors think that it’s all about them. An avid world traveler, she dreams of helping you create your dream wedding on a beach in Fiji, a chateau in France, a villa in Italy, or a castle in Scotland. Read less

Our wedding was two months ago but it feels like it was yesterday thanks to the AMAZING (!!!) work of Amber and her lovely assistant Nira. I found Amber more than a year before our wedding. I knew I was going to hire her immediately when she told me about hiking with her adorable rescue dog while she was dressed in the most girly outfit ever. Amber is simply put, the best wedding planner you could ever have. I felt so comfortable with her and none of my requests were silly or too out there. If I needed to vent about family issues or my fiance, I could call Amber, curse like a truck driver and then laugh 30 seconds later. Not only a wedding planner, Amber should be a wedding therapist!

Now in terms of our actual wedding, it could not have been more perfect. Our request was "West Elm in a black tie wedding" and that is exactly what Amber delivered. I was more of a hands-off bride. My requests consisted of "flower balls" and cake, but beyond that I let Amber do everything. I trust her implicitly. No detail was left untouched, Amber got it all. The vendors that she works with are amazing. All of our wedding guests still say how much they loved the wedding and the tipsy photos of them dancing make me smile. Amber is truly an artist and when we walked into the ballroom for our wedding, both me and my husband were floored.

I am sad that our wedding is over since I can't call Amber daily now!

I love Amber Gustafson. I hired her as my wedding planner and she and her team completely exceeded my expectations. During the wedding planning process she was extremely hands-on and provided great advice, counseling, and friendship. She and her assistants made my wedding day move SOOOOO smoothly. Logistically, everything was PERFECT. Her assistants were SO nice too and it was such a pleasure to working a highly talented group of individuals. I miss wedding planning and I miss working with Amber!

Amber and her team were fantastic! From the moment we met Amber we knew that we would be in good hands.

Let's start with the fact that Amber is scrupulously organized and professional. She knows exactly when and where everything is supposed to happen, and makes sure that it all goes off seamlessly. In short, you don't have to worry.

But more important to us was her flexibility. We had our wedding in an unusual venue that none of our vendors had ever worked. She was happy to go along for the ride and figure out how to make it work.

We also valued some wedding traditions more than others. Amber was perfectly flexible and made our wedding fit our needs. For example, we wanted to skip the wedding cake and just get dessert that our friends would enjoy; Amber made sure that it happened just how we wanted and didn't pressure us to do things the "traditional" way.

She also gave us the inside scoop on our vendors. She's worked with lots of LA caterers, photographers, florists, and others. She knows how they work, and she'll tell you how to manage each of them best. She's an advocate in your corner and makes things get done.

Most of all, she kept us relaxed through the whole process. She gently reminded us to get things done when they needed to get done, helped us fill in our missing vendors, and made sure we enjoyed our wedding day. Her team made the day go seamlessly, and she kept everyone on schedule despite the normal vendor glitches. Best of all, she even made sure that we had snacks after the ceremony (when we were taking pictures) and that we had time to eat at least some of our dinners. Who else takes care of her friends as well as Amber?

Thanks for a wonderful wedding!!! We literally couldn't have done it without you.

My fiance and I just got married October 3rd, and we couldn't wait to give Amber 5 stars and tell the world that she's the best. Thanks to Amber, we had an amazing wedding. She was great to work with, always thinking ahead, and really knew her stuff. Amber provided tips and referrals, as well as coordinated all of the vendors on the day of, which made my now husband (!) and my life much easier. Our ceremony and reception location was considered "off site" because it was at a state park and required a lot of coordination, considering that the tables, chairs, catering, etc. all had to come in from the outside. Amber told us that she specialized in this type of event when we hired her, and she exceeded our expectations in her knowledge and ability to make this such a special and smoothly run day. We can't thank you enough Amber, for your kindness, sense of humor, professionalism, and talent. WE love you and wish you all the best in your already successful career!

My mother was the one who wanted to hire a wedding planner. On a tight budget, I thought, why waste the money, we can handle it ourselves. Needless to say, my mother won that battle...but, I'm here to say...I can admit when I'm wrong! We could NEVER have pulled off such a beautiful, flawless day without the expertise of Amber Events. From the second I met Amber, not only did I think, this woman knows her stuff, but I walked away thinking first, that I knew I wouldn't have to worry about a thing and second, I totally want to hang out with this chick!

I am a strong person and I have opinions and expectations and as the client, I expect to have those opinions and expectations heard. We hired Amber for Wedding Supervision package and what I liked about her was that if she disagreed with something, she didn't just "yes" me to death, she offered her advice as well, but in the end, did whatever we asked. In many instances, I realized, she knew best and appreciated the input. She always responded quickly to any question I had and always made me feel comfortable...even prior to her 6 week out official start date.

Our wedding day was magical. I'm a person that usually needs to "handle" everything, but knowing Amber and her team were there, I was able to completely let go. It was like one of those "trust" exercises where someone stands behind you and you have to fall back and hope they'll catch you. Well, Amber caught me! She managed all the nuances of the day to perfection and I know the day would not have been anywhere near what it was if it wasn't for her.

I highly recommend Amber to anyone looking for a coordinator. You will not be disappointed. And if you have the same thoughts about wedding coordinators that I did...trust me, she's worth every penny!

When I had my first meeting with Amber, I sat down with her and, half joking, I asked her to help us get featured on my favorite wedding blog, Style Me Pretty. Well, today, Amber delivered! I would never have been able to pull off such a seamless wedding and get it noticed by such a huge publisher of beautiful weddings :)

Amber coordinated the BEST DAY OF OUR LIVES and we are so grateful! Seriously, we probably enjoyed our wedding more than any guest in attendance (lucky us, how many brides and grooms get to say that?), and that is no small feat considering what a blast everyone had (we’ve received so many compliments about how our wedding set the bar and that it was the best they’ve ever been to).

Getting married at Malibu Rancho Del Cielo (a private residence in the Malibu hills) involved a lot more footwork than your typical wedding (I mean, we had a separate team of people for almost everything—venue rentals, catering, shuttles, officiating, flowers, bartending, DJ, photographer, hair and make-up, accommodations and cake, etc.). In addition to organizing our laundry list of vendors, Amber guided us every step of the way (and I would be remiss if I did not add, with a happy-to attitude and in a seemingly effortless manner).

Amber is AWESOME and AMAZING for so many reasons—- she is super responsive, she made me feel like it was normal to send her a mazillion emails with questions, her vendor recommendations and creative/practical suggestions were spot on, we loved her sense of style and romance, she fed us wine from her personal reserve at our details meeting (how thoughtful/cool is that?), she has a fun personality combined with an impressive organizational gift, and most importantly, we didn’t worry about a thing on our wedding day (other than some PCH traffic, which Amber totally warned us about ;)).

We found our venue and then we found Amber, and all the other details seemed to fall into perfect place. Our “more fun than fancy” wedding was everything we hoped for and more. Going with Amber Events was the best wedding related decision we made during the planning process, and obviously, we highly recommend Amber Events to anyone looking for kick-ass coordinator.


p.s. THANK YOU AMBER, FOR EVERYTHING!!!!

I recently told Amber (of Amber Events) that I couldn't have gotten married without her. She told me not to be silly -- of course I could have gotten married without her. My response now: "Only if I had wanted to get married in a courthouse!!" Amber Gustafson was completely invaluable to our wedding planning and execution. I had thought that I could handle everything myself and was suffering anxiety attacks almost daily... until we hired Amber for her "month of" service. She immediately took over all of the vendor contracts and within a few days had spreadsheets and "how to" forms that helped me feel "in control" again. Amber responded to every email and phone message hastily (thank you, iPhone!), and I really felt like I had someone in my corner. My husband and I had talked about hiring someone to do "day of" coordination as opposed to "month of" -- but, in retrospect, that idea was just silly. Amber had such a sense about us as a couple by the time the big day came around. She anticipated thoughts, feelings and problems and had nothing but solutions. I would also like to express my gratitude to Sacha, Amber's intern, who went above and beyond the day of the wedding -- and even the day after when she had to show up at our venue first thing in the morning (before catching an early afternoon flight!) to oversee the final clean-up. Overall, I recommend Amber Events whole-heartedly. Amber is a combination of sweet, kind, persistent, professional and PERFECT!!!! Now if only I could hire her to organize the rest of my life... :-)

Amber Gustafson from Amber Events is: Wedding Coordinator Extraordinaire Experienced Calm demeanor Sweet Trusting Leader someone you can count on for every single detail I have been personal assistant to high profile clients for many years and am currently a project manager in charge of over 40 people, so I know what is required when it comes to this type of work and I therefore expect nothing but the best. Initially I dismissed the idea of having a wedding coordinator or even a "day of" wedding coordinator. I have organised large parties and weddings in the past. However, after meeting with Amber for 30 minutes I knew that I had been sent not only a reliable, work-horse who would make sure my wedding went smoothly, but I had also been sent an angel who would keep me calm throughout the whole process and somebody I knew I could count on. She guided me through the process with confidence, which in turn allowed me to let go and enjoy the day. In the lead up to the wedding Amber was fantastic. She sent forms requesting loads of information which pushed us to make decisions and not leave things to the last minute. I was confident that not one detail of the day was left out. The weekend of the wedding: My hair and make-up person cancelled two days before the wedding. I called Amber, in tears, not knowing what to do. Within an hour she had 5 people for me to call and they all knew the details of what I needed. I was so worried that things would not work out and she helped me to stay calm and remind me what tears would do to my makeup. The day of the wedding, which will forever be the best day of my life, was perfect. NOTHING could have been different. Amber was there every single step of the way making sure that it went smoothly. From the Quartet starting on time and then swiftly moving to the cocktail area to our grand entrance, every part of the day and every person involved knew what was happening. My wedding day is somewhat of a blur to me because everything seemed to happen so fast but one thing I can remember is Amber's smiling face. I felt like there must have been 5 of her because she was always in the right place at the right time where she needed to be. She was there right to the end, making sure certain items we wanted saved from the day were carefully packed and put into the limos. Overall, my husband and I can't thank Amber enough for what she did in the lead-up, preparation, support and "on the day" of the wedding. She was supportive, provided firm guidance, a wealth of practical knowledge and great contacts in all areas of the industry. We cannot recommend her highly enough! A final point to consider, most people who write these reviews are unhappy for whatever reason and therefore feel the need, rightly or wrongly, to share their unhappiness. Even if it isn't justified and even if it is just to make someone else feel miserable. The reason why we have taken so long to write this review, and I'm sure it is similar for those that haven't bothered to right a review yet, is that we are all so incredibly happy with the service that we have received that we simply forget to write such a review in the post-event bliss. In any case, take negative reviews with a grain of salt, because for every negative one, there is at least 10 positive ones that have gone unwritten.

We just started working with Amber this past month, and we are very impressed so far by her professionalism and great organizational skills. Her rates are competitive, especially since she is bringing 2 assistants with her. Most importantly, she seemed genuinely excited about our wedding (as opposed to some other vendors). Our wedding is in August, so I will update my review when it gets closer to the date! ****UPDATE**** Our wedding was in August, and I have to say it went fabulously - in many ways thanks to Amber. I will say that your coordinator is one of the most important vendors for you to "click" with - I mean, its not essential that you *like* your cake baker/florist/caterer as long as you trust them professionally. Your coordinator, on the other hand, will be spending a lot of time with you, so if you can't get along, its a problem! We probably met with 5-6 potential coordinators. Some tried to prove how "upscale" they were and others gave the impression of an OC-Housewife who woke up one day and decided "hey, I'll be a wedding planner." We were starting to get discouraged... Amber was refreshingly different. You can tell she is fully committed to her job, and is a true professional. At the same time, she is extremely down-to-earth (I credit this to the fact that she grew up somewhere OTHER than LA ;) which made us very comfortable. We were particularly impressed with her organizational skills, and really trusted that she would have everything taken care of. Our site was extremely challenging (think: Top of a hill in Malibu,long narrow windy road, no parking, have to RENT everything, location coordinators that won't call you back, etc.) If we had to deal with it all on our own I think we would have had a nervous breakdown and eloped to vegas. I can't tell you how many times Amber brought up and took care of things we never even thought of. She KNOWS her stuff - and in particular gave us great recommendations for the few vendors we still had to book. She also let us choose the level of involvement we needed. In our case, we wanted to choose a lot of the design elements ourselves, but we really relied on her professional eye to put it all together and execute our "vision." On the day of, she was there until the very end...painstakingly packing and repacking the best man's SUV with our gifts, decorations, and leftover alcohol. I am still amazed that it all fit! To sum up - if you are considering hiring a coordinator I would recommend: 1) Do it. (This is not the place to scrimp on your budget, get cheaper chairs or something) and 2) Book Amber if you can! It will be one of the best decisions you make in the planning process.

We just started working with Amber this past month, and we are very impressed so far by her professionalism and great organizational skills. Her rates are competitive, especially since she is bringing 2 assistants with her. Most importantly, she seemed genuinely excited about our wedding (as opposed to some other vendors). Our wedding is in August, so I will update my review when it gets closer to the date! ****UPDATE**** Our wedding was in August, and I have to say it went fabulously - in many ways thanks to Amber. I will say that your coordinator is one of the most important vendors for you to "click" with - I mean, its not essential that you *like* your cake baker/florist/caterer as long as you trust them professionally.

Worst wedding planner. Do not waste your money. Overpriced for her experience level. Please don't make the same mistake I made. Find someone with more experience. Not ready for prime time. What went wrong? Let's see.. After asking my bridal party to show up early for rehearsal, she showed up late. (I personally would expect a planner to show up at least 30 minutes early to a rehearsal - she was 5 minutes late, and didn't call! EVERYONE was there except her when she finally arrived, and they had all made comments about it. Not fun.) Then my groom and I were whisked away to a private meeting for another 30 minutes while my bridal party again waited. They waited and hour and 15 minutes for us when with just a phone call on this planner's part, it would have saved all of them an extra hour. Kind of annoying when you're asking your close friends and family members to go out of their way and take time out of their day to be at a rehearsal. Hmmm. How about the wedding day? There was a wrinkle in my dress and it would have been very nice to have an iron, or steamer or something handy.... ? Nothing. How about my throat drying out on the hot day when I was to say my vows, and not even a glass or bottle of water ready? Hmmm. How about the fact that neither I or my groom (getting ready at different locations) received phone calls reminding us it was time to get ready to leave for the chapel? Hmmm. How about after setting a very specific timing to a song during rehearsal for when my bridal party was to walk down the aisle, and then on the day having the coordinator from the chapel not know anything about it? And I am gesturing from the wings to try to stop her from sending the bridal party out at the wrong times? Isn't that what a rehearsal is for? Please. How about showing up to my suite at the hotel only to see a view through glass so dirtied by seagull droppings that I had to call the maid to have them removed? (and they weren't fresh, either) Or that the mini-fridge where I was to keep my flowers had frozen the entire contents of the refrigerator? Or that a very un-romantic mop was left in the suite on the wedding night? I don't know, these are the kinds of things I personally would expect a wedding planner to check out, be aware of, be prepared for, and deal with so that I wouldn't have to make calls personally, or deal with them personally. This planner seems upset by this review, but I felt the need to be honest, so that future potential clients can make an informed decision. Was I happy with this service? To be honest, No.

My husband and I were overjoyed with our choice to book Amber Events for our May wedding! Amber came to our rescue during the planning process;6 months out from our wedding date, we found ourselves without a venue! We had to move our wedding date up from August to May so that we could keep our location. We were not only having trouble with our vendors, but were now stressed out about getting everything finished on time. We knew that we needed help. When we met with Amber she made us feel more relaxed right away. She understood our concerns and genuinely cared about our situation. We really clicked with her, and knew that she would do a great job helping us have the wedding we wanted. One of the best pre-wedding things we got from Amber was advice and reassurance. When we were stressed about something, we could just call or email her, and she got back to us very quickly with a solution or a plan. She was professional, but I also felt like she really understood what I was going through and would be here to talk me through it. She also had very helpful paperwork, from information about where and how to get our license, to getting to know you type of questions. We really felt like she was taking the time to find out who we were so that she could give us the best recommendations and advise. On our wedding day, Amber and her assistant Krista seamlessly ran the show from behind the scenes. They set up the reception perfectly! It looked better than I'd even pictured! They brought us drinks while we waited for the guests to arrive and made sure that we got something to eat after the ceremony. They jumped in when our parking attendants didn't show up, helping to direct cars and get the shuttled to turn around in a tiny little driveway (best of all, they didn't say one word about this to us. I didn't even know that the parking attendants didn't show up until after we got back from our honeymoon!). And the reception went so smoothly. From getting food at the buffet line, to the toasts, FD and MS dances, and cake cutting! It was all easy and fun. Amber kept us on track with our time line, but I never once felt rushed. I have heard from so many people, especially my wedding party, what a relaxed and go with the flow bride I was. And I know for a fact that this was mostly due to the fact that I completely trusted Amber! We had gone back and forth about hiring a coordinator, and weather it was worth spending money on. And I am SO glad that we did. It was the best use of our money! My husband and I had an amazing time at our wedding. We weren't worried about any of the details because we knew that Amber Events would take are of it. And they did. Everything we asked for, and MORE! Thank you!!!!

Words cannot express how amazing my wedding planning and day was, and it all comes down to the help of Amber from Amber Events. What an exquisite woman who is just seamless at her job. There was nothing left unattended to and people have said to me that I was the camlest bride they have ever seen. My response, it was because Amber was the most attentive planner ever! We hired Amber about 6 months before our big day, and from that day I knew that my wedding would be in amazing hands. My mom and I were planning the majority of the wedding and knew that we needed someone to make sure everything went smoothly. Thats where Amber came in. Also I should mention that my husband was absolutely in love with Amber and still is. He still talks about her and her team to this day about how amazing they were! Like I said before, she is the most organized person that I have ever met. I thought I was organized, she puts me to shame! Each client has their own binder filled with contracts, contacts and personal notes, who else does that!? We had many meetings with Amber, and each one she was punctual and might I say early! I felt seriously at ease with her presence and knew that my mom would be able to relax with her in charge. The day before the wedding we had our rehearsal, and let me tell you how prompt and fabulous she was. Amber was early as usual and not only putting our families at ease, but to help us out she even had POCKET SIZED printouts for the next days scheduled events. It is touches like that which make Amber just so detailed to her job and just simply amazing. The day of the wedding was absolutely seamless. Amber was there along with her amazing assistant Krista who was there for everything my mom, sister and I needed. I felt like a true princess but in the company of friends. I am not a needy person but if we needed something they were there for it! The actual ceremony went off without a hitch and of course the party was just spectacular. I even had a few reminders from her to eat or drink- MUCH APPRECIATED! When we retreated to our room that evening at the hotel, Amber had decorated our room with the most gorgeous flowers from the party and made my husband and I feel so special. It is thoughts and touches like this that make Amber just so special. Looking back at this experience, we would not have changed a thing because Amber of Amber Events is just fabulous and one of the most amazing people that I know. I am so honored to have had her help me with my special day.

The first time you meet Amber from Amber Events you will know she is the fabulous you want to plan your wedding! When my daughter got engaged I had 1.5 years to plan her wedding. She and her fianc were PhD students with little free time and I had done event planning in the past. After 6 months of online research of vendors, their websites and reviews, I had limited my choices in each category to 50 and upward! Living in Kansas, and my daughter and the wedding in Los Angeles, I finally decided I needed a wedding planner. The name that kept coming back to me over and over in my research was Amber from Amber Events. I gave Amber a call along with a few other planners. She was the only one who promptly returned my call and impressed me from our conversation. Her warmth and personality made me feel like I had known her forever. We set an appointment to meet on my next trip to Los Angeles and I had so much confidence in her from our phone talk, that I never set a meeting with any other planners! Once we met I knew I had made the right choice. Im the type of person who has to be in charge and do everything myself, but with Ambers knowledge of the wedding business, her organizational skills, her attention to details, and her timelines, I was at ease knowing all the planning would be taken care of while I was back in Kansas. She was always a step ahead and nothing was ever done at the last minute. Amber gave me recommendations for vendors, and not one of them was on my list after six months of research. Her vendor choices were perfect and she took great care in knowing the wedding family and matching vendors who would work well with our personalities. I was very pleased with every one of our vendor choices that she recommended. Amber individualized and customizes each and every wedding to fit her clients own style. No cookie cutter weddings here! She always returned my calls and responded to my emails even if all I needed was some encouragement. On the day of the wedding, with Amber and her assistants handing everything, our family was able to relax and enjoy every moment of the day. Amber Events has proven to me they indeed have the right to advertise as Specializing in the Fabulous!. All of our family and friend are still raving about our daughters wedding and say it was the best wedding they have ever attended. And we have Amber to thank for making the wedding everything we hoped for and so much more!

I used Amber Events for lighting and sound at my wedding. They came with high recommendations from my venue. First, I did some price shopping and Amber was pricier than the other two companies I looked into. However, they were definitely willing to work with my budget so I gave them the benefit of the doubt. Working with them was okay, they were a little slow in getting back to me but it was worth it in the end. My venue looked amazing! And our live band sounded great in the space which is normally very echoey. Also, they threw in a some free pin spots which just made everything pop.

Nira of Amber Events is my hero. I was planning my Marvimon wedding from Western Massachusetts and knew I needed a coordinator to help me pull this thing off. As soon as I met Nira over Skype, I knew she was perfect. She's super sweet. She also has lots of experience working with Marvimon and many of the preferred vendors. Most importantly, this girl kept it real. Her recommendations for vendors were fabulous and she had the best advice ever to keep our budget in check. I knew I could trust her no matter what.

A few months before our wedding, my fiance and I found out we were moving back to California....2 weeks before the wedding. I panicked. Having Nira on my team made this whole process so much easier and less stressful. My fiance and I met with Nira 6 weeks before our wedding and handed everything over. From that point on, she was my go to girl and took care of everything. Seriously, like everything. I am a crazy organized Excel spreadsheet-making, to-do list, triple check everything, follow-up email kind of girl. Nira was able to lift this weight off my shoulders when I had so many other things to be thinking about.

On the day of my wedding, Nira was at the venue bright and early with several assistants (who were all fabulous as well). Nira and her girls executed everything perfectly and my wedding turned out even more beautiful than I could have imagined. The whole planning process was made so much easier by having hired Nira. Worth every penny.

This is a long overdue review for an absolutely incredible wedding coordinator. We never planned to have a coordinator, and in the end it was the best decision we made, and not just any coordinator, Amber in specific. I never dreamed of my wedding day or had a vision, and the thought of having to plan a wedding was quite overwhelming. We looked up vendors and ideas and found endless options, and then wouldn't do anything because we didn't know what we actually wanted or where to start. We decided to look into what coordinators can offer and came across Amber Events in a web search and never looked back. From the very beginning she was responsive, professional, and quick to understand what we were going for, even when we weren't quite sure yet. And we immediately felt totally comfortable with her - very important! After (very quickly) deciding to work with her, we had such a sense of relief. We knew we were working with someone who could recommend vendors (each was absolutely fantastic!), tell us what we needed to do and when, and who come wedding day, would make sure everything came together so that we wouldn't have to worry about a thing. And that's exactly what happened. And she’s fun!! Amber made everything so easy for us, thus making it so we could enjoy every minute of the experience and be present and remember it all. Everything flowed so seamlessly, nothing felt rushed, it was welcoming and relaxed and incredibly fun. She really listened to what we were going for and took time to understand us. This extra effort completely showed because our wedding really did reflect who we are. Amber was there for each minor and major detail, even bringing a bridesmaid's purse full of important items not just to the hotel, but to someone in my family so that it wasn't left with just anyone, after the wedding. Our wedding far exceeded anything we could have imagined. Amber is truly kick-ass, at what she does and as a person. Work with her - you won't regret it!!!

And that's exactly what happened. And she’s fun!! Amber made everything so easy for us, thus making it so we could enjoy every minute of the experience and be present and remember it all. Everything flowed so seamlessly, nothing felt rushed, it was welcoming and relaxed and incredibly fun. She really listened to what we were going for and took time to understand us. This extra effort completely showed because our wedding really did reflect who we are. Amber was there for each minor and major detail, even bringing a bridesmaid's purse full of important items not just to the hotel, but to someone in my family so that it wasn't left with just anyone, after the wedding. Our wedding far exceeded anything we could have imagined. Amber is truly kick-ass, at what she does and as a person. Work with her - you won't regret it!!! Read less
