My experience with AMS entertainment was perfection from beginning to end. They were all so attentive and on point. Tad took time to get to know what we wanted as a couple so that he could match us with the DJ that was just right for us. We also chose uplighting that made our reception look so beautiful. DJ Andrew was AMAZING. He was so organized and professional. I am a planner, so I really appreciated the planner that they had us fill out for the reception. It made things run a lot smoother in my opinion. I also really appreciated the attention to detail that everyone at AMS provided us especially when there is so much to think about and so much stress when planning a wedding. They made it as easy as possible and we loved how they made us feel important. It was easy to trust them because they were on top of it and provided excellent service throughout the whole proceds. We had one song request for each guest and DJ Andrew was very open to playing everything our guests wanted. On our wedding day DJ Andrew played a variety of music, which kept the party going and our guests very happy! We got a lot of compliments on the variety of our music thanks to him. We also loved his yellow bow tie! Pretty cool!! I will definitely be recommeding them to my friends and family and will use them for future parties! Thank you AMS!

We used AMS for our wedding coordinating, lighting and ceremony decor. We initially spoke to Tad, who referred us to Hayley Brantley (coordinator). Hayley had another full time job and was thus not as proactive or helpful as we had hoped, so I ended up doing a lot of the work. Hayley just wanted me to use the vendors she knew, even though they did not have the items I had specifically requested. She was nice but kept saying that she had a day time job and did not seem concerned with the fact that we hired her to coordinate our wedding! She created so much stress for myself and my husband.

About a month before the wedding, we were surprised to find that she had offered more of our money for one vendor (without our consent) and when we asked her about it, she stopped responding to our calls and quit. On my wedding day, she specifically got a major detail wrong in the ceremony decoration at the alter and it did not look the way I had communicated so clearly.

As a replacement, AMS offered to replace Hayley with Courtney Wolfshandl, who was amazing and I could not recommend a planner more highly. Responsible, proactive and able to take feedback, so it was a great experience to work with Courtney and is the only reason I gave more stars in the rating.

AMS is great! A friend who is in the wedding industry told me about AMS after I had made several calls to day of wedding coordinators and was discouraged by their extremely expensive prices. We only used AMS for a Coordinator but they also can provide DJ's, lighting, etc. We had Natalie Melton as as our Coordinator for our wedding at the SB historical Museum and she was A+! Extremely organized, kind to our family and friends and ensured everything came together. AMS will pair you with a Coordinator based on their availability and your needs, etc (there's a survey you take in the beginning) so that's something you have to be ok with; but for us we simply wanted someone organized to help prior and for the day of & Natalie exceeded our expectations. What's also nice is their Coordinators start working with you a couple of months before, and it's extremely helpful to have this support in the upcoming months to the big day. Great staff and good value. Definitely go with AMS for your wedding coordination needs!

We used DJ Matt Nocas and we was terrific. He completely accommodated our wants and needs. He felt the wedding out and played music that suited to all. Very easy to work with, no overbearing, we were very stoked I met with Matt the week before to go over everything and he's very approachable and understood our desired wedding culture very quickly. Highly recommend AMS and DJ Matt Nocas!

We hired AMS Entertainment to do our DJ and month-of coordinator. From the beginning, they treated us great. Our DJ was Matt, and he was enthusiastic and helpful along the way. We were most impressed with Vienna, who performed practically perfectly. She was enthusiastic, supportive, coordinated proactively with everything, able to adapt to any changes or suggestions we made (even last minute), and all of our wedding guests who met her told us how much they liked her.

Natalie was our wedding coordinator for the entire month before our wedding. I can’t stress enough what a relief it was to have her for this time. She contacted all of our vendors and made sure they all had a day of timeline, which was extremely helpful and something I wouldn’t have thought to do. Natalie is in Santa Barbara and we are in San Francisco, so we met via Skype and phone conversations; she also met with us the night before the rehearsal dinner at our venue so we could walk through how the night would go.
Natalie genuinely cares about your day and will do whatever it takes to make everything go perfectly smooth. I felt completely relieved having her as our coordinator and didn’t worry about anything the day of our wedding. We had décor that we brought from home, which Natalie took care of setting up and packing back up at the end of the night. She had great ideas of where certain things should go, such as the escort card table and sign in table.
The night went extremely smoothly and Natalie was there the entire time to make sure everything stayed on schedule. Even my family members commented the next day that she was fabulous.
Once the night was over Natalie went above and beyond, she took all our gifts and décor back to our room and packed it up perfectly. The sweetest part was that she set up candles, sprinkled flower petals all over the floor, made a heart out of flower petals on the bed, set up flowers all over the room, had a bucket with champagne, and chocolate covered strawberries waiting for us. It was so romantic and the most amazing thing to come back to after our wedding. I can’t put into words how amazing Natalie is and how I would hire her for every event possible!
Thank you Natalie for helping make our day perfect!

We had a great experience with AMS for our May 2016 wedding. We used their DJ, Photobooth, AND Month-Of Coordination services. They gave us a good deal for all the add ons and everything turned out great.

DJ Andrew Burger listened to our requests and did a great job fitting the music with the atmosphere. The dance floor was a popular place!

Photobooth was standard and people had a blast, no complaints there!

Natalie was our day-of (month-of) coordinator and she did a great job with the set up and execution of the day. Everything felt seamless and we didn't have to think of any timeline stuff ourselves...Natalie was always there telling us what we needed to be doing!
