I was extremely tentative about hiring a wedding planner - I work in public relations/event planning and have planned several events in my personal life and career. That said, Amy was the key component in making my wedding day a success and allowing me to truly enjoy the day (and months leading up to it) by managing many of the logistics and day to day questions that come up during that time. She was a invaluable resource in vetting vendors AND most importantly, negotiating contracts so that we could have the event we wanted, within our fixed budget. Lastly, Amy was great in answering any wedding related question that came my way, from traditional processional songs, to seating charts and room layout. I would recommend her to anyone and can promise you will be so glad you worked with her!

If you are getting married...Please give this lady a call. She is smart, calm, kind, prompt, and knows what to do in every circumstance. We all (my daughter, myself and my husband) found her to delightful to work with and worth her weight in gold. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her. I wish she were a member of my family so that Christmas and Thanksgiving would run as smoothly as our wedding.

Amy is amazing to work with! She has a fun, upbeat personality and is very calming to be around. She can cooperate with everyone, which helps so much with all the different wedding vendors! My whole bridal party (and family) enjoyed working with her as well. She is very sweet, professional, and down-to-earth. I could not have asked for more from a wedding coordinator! I would absolutely suggest Amy to any of my friends to make their weddings even more perfect! - From Adrienne, one very happy bride!

My daughter was married at the Four Seasons in Las Vegas. As an out of town bride (London), getting her special day put together was quite an undertaking. Amy is an amazingly talented and organized planner, who is willing to go the extra mile ( in our case, many miles!) She is calm and patient and makes suggestions to put the ideas you have into perspective and make them happen. As the mother of the bride I cannot express how calm I felt just knowing that Amy was there to make a magical day happen so flawlessly. Amy is well, amazing! There were a few last minute changes which she handed with grace and professionalism. She took the ideas my daughter had in her head and made the tables and the reception exactly how she wanted it to be. It was gorgeous! She was especially good at organizing all the people in the ceremony and getting everyone together and walking down the aisle right at the correct moment all the while making them feel calm and special. Amy also keeps everyone together and helps the photographer get all the pictures taken, even suggesting certain areas within the venue that make beautiful pictures. Amy truly goes out of her way to make the day just as you imagined it would be. I cannot express how great at her profession she is. Job well done Amy! Thanks so much!

Amy at In the Moment Weddings planned our 20th Wedding Anniversary Renewal. We knew Amy for a few years because she had also planned our daughter's Bat Mitzvah reception. Amy is by far the best event planner I have ever worked with. Not only did she introduce ideas (e.g. venues) that we hadn't thought of, she is pleasant, calm and was willing to tailor an event to our needs. She works with many vendors and always provided choices to us among the vendors. She was also very flexible in working within our budget. Amy has been working in the event planning business for so many years that she has contacts throughout Southern California which we would never have known about. Given her experience in the industry, she did a great job of coordinating everything so that we could enjoy the reception and not worry about the details. Amy is passionate about her job and making sure her clients are happy. In the end, Amy very modest fee will result in multiples of savings for the client because of her contacts and experience. Whether for a wedding reception or a large party, I give Amy the highest recommendation and will never use anyone else.

From the first time I spoke with Amy she helped calm my fears about all the coordinating that would need to happen between my vendors prior to and at my wedding. I also didn't give her a lot of time to help me plan either, I hired her maybe 2.5 months in advance of my wedding, but she was so professional and organized that it seemed like we had been working together for several months.

Amy was wonderful in every aspect, she is prompt with answering emails or phone calls, very easy to schedule meetings with, always listens to your vision, and is excellent when it comes to dealing with difficult family members. On the day of my wedding we had some issues with being able to take pictures in the location we had planned but because of Amy coordinating and communicating with our photographers changing the picture location was incredibly easy and didn't mess up our timeline. Throughout the day everything ran smoothly, only once the whole day did I think "where is Amy, I need her" but before I could vocalize that thought she was right by my side. That's the beauty of working with Amy she recognize your needs before you may even know what it is you need.

Basically if you are looking for someone to help you plan your beautiful day in the most relaxed and carefree environment don't look any further. Amy will make it the most memorable day without you having to stress any of the details. I will forever recommend her to every friend, family member or anyone who mentions they are getting married.

From day one, Amy was such a great support in helping us plan our wedding. Besides being very knowledgeable about the location we had chosen for our ceremony and reception, she also had a great list of vendors to share with us which was key given that we were planning a San Diego wedding from NYC. Amy was always available to answer any questions as they arose and offer suggestions if need be regarding various aspects of the whole process. During our visits to San Diego prior to the big day, Amy scheduled and joined vendor appointments with us. She was conscious of our budget and recommended ideas without compromise to help us stay within our parameters. She also went above and beyond the week of the wedding to make sure that we were taken care of from picking up food for the wedding party the day of the wedding to returning vases to the florist the day after the celebration. In addition to being extremely organized, she's also fun and funny and will keep you smiling while planning for your special day. I could go on on on, but put simply, Amy is truly an expert in her field and will make sure that your wedding day will go off without a hitch. Many thanks again Amy! Your expertise and care made our day extra special and fun!

Amy was a pleasure to work. She has years of experience planning weddings which was demonstrated both by her professionalism and her list of preferred vendors. Amy was very responsive to all emails and calls. I was planning the wedding from out of town, so my mom and I really relied on Amy to help coordinate meetings with vendors and create a timeline for the day of the wedding. We used two of Amy's vendors (florist and baker) and both were great to work with. Amy's experience in the catering industry really came in handy when discussing the food options and negotiating prices at our reception venue. Amy was great at making herself available to us during the wedding week. She made all the centerpieces of our rehearsal dinner and was around to help drive the wedding party to and from the rehearsal at the church. All in all, Amy was completely worth hiring to help coordinate the wedding. I would highly recommend Amy to anyone recently engaged and looking to plan a wedding.Thanks for everything Amy!

Amy is simply the best. From our very first conversation, she listened to what my husband and I wanted for our special day and made it an incredible time for the both of us. Friends and family raved about all the special details they noticed at our ceremony and reception. Amy coordinated a lovely day and we could never thank her enough for all of her hard work. She is so amazing and professional, I know she will make your special day as beautiful and memory-filled as ours was!

Wow - I don't even know where to begin! Amy was the reason our wedding went off without a hitch! She was professional, efficient, and more than helpful from the minute we had our first meeting. She went above and beyond the day of our wedding by bringing our wedding party food, assisting us while getting ready and even helping me to calm my nerves as I got ready to walk down the aisle. She is creative, kind, fun to be around and now a personal friend. We could not have done it without her!! She truly is the best.

Friends of ours recommended Amy Kuchta for day-of-planning services and we were extremely impressed by her professionalism and hard work. We live in Washington, DC, but got married in Orange County, CA (bride's hometown) and it was important for us to select vendors who were flexible and responsive. Amy was all of that and more!
Throughout the planning process and on the actual wedding day, Amy was very professional, paid close attention to detail, and had a great "can do" attitude. Amy and her assistant Helen kept us on schedule and made sure everything ran smoothly.
Amy truly went above and beyond what a typical "day-of-coordinator" will do during the planning process and on the wedding day. For example, I traveled across country with my bridal gown and had no idea where I should take my gown to steam. I asked Amy for recommendations and she went one step beyond by offering to pick up and then drop off my bridal gown at the hotel. The days leading up to the wedding Amy always offered her help and no task was too little or too great for her.
Amy is so calm and got along so well with vendors, family, and friends. We had such a spectacular wedding day that exceeded our expectations. That was in part to Amy's careful planning and dedication to us that day.
