Amy June Weddings and Events
Amy was the best! The best price, the best planner, the best personality, the best referrals - everything! She was our day-of coordinator that went above and beyond day-of duties! She was a true professional and 100% responsive from day one. She gave us amazing vendors and handled anything and everything that popped up - from a crotchety contact at our church to a missing table to finding a guests' lost purse to even just keeping my champagne glass full - and best of all I didn't even know of any issues that popped up that day! I can honestly say that knowing Amy was handling things made the day so much more enjoyable - I wasn't worried about a single thing and could take in the experience with my husband and guests and not worry about small details. Amy is a real asset to the wedding and event community - and not to mention just a joy to know as well!
If I could give her a 0 I would! Amy is an awful person to work with! First, she forgot to show up to our first meeting. RED FLAG!!!! I drove all the way from LA to meet her and she didn't show up! She said she must have put it wrong on her calendar. Well when you make such a bad impression the first time, you should fix it. Instead, she tried to blame it on my mom said, "well your mom changed the date 7 different times" Which was clearly not true and when I told her, no it was only changed once because the original date was a holiday, she said oh I meant she emailed back and forth so much that it was confusing. Then she refused to give me back my $300 deposit because it was un-refundable. Well it's one thing to ask for a refund because you changed your mind and it's another when the person with the most important job doesn't show up and then tries to make excuses about it. She said, "well I have been emailing back and forth with your mom and that's my fee for that, so I will not refund the money". When you mess up, own up to it! It shouldn't be a discussion. I gave her the chance to resolve it with me over the phone but chose not to, so I am currently disputing this with my bank. Also, when I called bride rush to complain, they said they have been having issues with her as well and she owed them money and was not returning their calls. She's awful! AVOID AVOID AVOID!!!!!!!
Vendor response to review
Admittedly there was a huge disconnect in communication with myself and your mother that ultimately ended in us not having the opportunity to work together. I have taken what I can from this experience to heart and will use it to improve my business in the future.
I wish you the best in your planning and hope your wedding is still as wonderful as I intended it to be.
Amy was our magnificent wedding planner for our October LGBT wedding at the Estancia LaJolla in San Diego. She came as a last minute recommendation from our friends Sara and Ryan (of Sara + Ryan Photography). We had previously contracted with another planner who was a friend of the family however we had to cut our budget down and couldn't afford to work with them in the long run. Fast forward to our quickly approaching wedding date when we were gifted a sum of money and found ourselves overwhelmed in the minutiae of details. We decided we needed a day-of planner at the very least.
From our first meeting our energy just flowed. Amy and I are very similar in our communication style...we can talk about 20 different things in the span of 15 minutes. She went above and beyond to help us connect with other vendors who extended great discounts to us because of her excellent working relationship with them. We finally felt like our dream wedding was coming together! For the first time I was relieved as the day approached.
On the day of our wedding everything went as planned, and if it didn't we had no clue lol as it should be. We were never inconvenienced. We remember every minute of our special day! We were able to relax and absorb it all. Amy was a true professional...and now she is a great friend!
Amy from Affairs by Amy rocks! She's very professional and gets the job done without a hitch! I can't imagine what my wedding would've been like without her. I had some issues with my venue but Amy took care of it. Everything went so smoothly. She's so good at what she does and you can tell she loves it. I recommend Amy for anyone planning a wedding.
Where do I start raving about Amy? She was just so wonderful, I don’t know where to begin.
At our consultation meeting, Amy assured me that she would conduct the event to our exact wishes but was also able to think on her feet if there were any last-minute changes that needed to be made. She had lots of money-saving ideas and excellent vendor recommendations. I contacted Amy the next day to book her for day-of wedding coordinating services.
Amy was great about keeping in touch to see how planning was going and providing advice. She is EXCELLENT with returning emails, responding within MINUTES. In those critical days prior to the wedding, it was very comforting and much appreciated.
A few weeks before the event, Amy collected all the vendor contacts and dutifully took over all the coordinating, effortlessly tying up all the loose ends. I actually felt relaxed the weeks before the wedding because Amy was SO on top of everything.
The morning of the wedding, Amy stopped by my bridal suite to see if there was anything at all I needed.
Above all, the wedding day went PERFECTLY. Amy was everywhere making sure the event was running smoothly but somehow managed to be perfectly attentive to anything we needed. She made sure we had a chance to eat dinner and even saved us appetizers as we were busy taking photos during the cocktail hour. She also made sure the special moments were not missed by our family members, even making sure our moms were called over for the cake cutting so they wouldn’t miss it.
Amy stayed for hours making sure everything was cleaned up which allowed us to get our entire venue deposit back.
Our wedding day was seamless, perfect, and relaxing; all thanks to Amy. Her get-it-done attitude and incredible multi-tasking skills will ensure your wedding day is everything you want it to be.
Thank you so much for all your hard work on our Big Day. We had the time of our lives! I was floating on a cloud the whole time!.
Thank you for all the little details and big responsibilities you managed so well. .. the day wizzed by.... Jens flowers where so lovely ( Branches a Floral Studio).
Thank you for the thoughtful gift of the cute little nest ! It was perfect for holding our wedding rings. What a sweet touch for our Lovebird theme. We appreciate all the things you did that we didn't notice because you kept everything running smoothly.
We have gotten the most amazing compliments. My Moms neighbor Brad said it was the best wedding he's Ever been to! Everyone had a great time. It was one big love fest!
Michael and I where " over the moon happy". Thank you for playing such a large role in making our Dream Wedding a reality!
With warm regards,
Kelly & Michael
Amy was awesome! She saved us so much money right from the get go by suggesting vendors that were priced well and excellent! The day of would have been so different without her help- she kept things going smoothly the entire time! Highly highly recommend her!
Amy was great I'm glad i hired her to help with my wedding. She is very affordable.
What is there to say about Amy? Besides the obvious fact that she is AMAZING!!! I'm sure as with every wedding that there was a lot of fuss and issues during the set up and throughout the night, but I wouldn't know about any of it because Amy was there and solved everything. All I really had to do was show up! She has been such a great person to confide in during the wedding planning process, and she give me great ideas and an amazing list of vendors. I had such a great time during my wedding thanks to Amy, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!
I have to hand it to Amy. I hired her as my Day of Coordinator with only a month or so until the wedding. From the beginning she was responsive to phone calls and e-mails and worked within my budget. We met with her just two days before to show her the venues and she was on top of everything and ready with questions and suggestions! She even did all final vendor confirmations for me.\r\n\r\nThere were a few minor items on the to-do list that were not done, but these were the least of our worries considering how much worse it could have been without her! Overall everything went VERY smoothly and exactly as we wanted. We are awed by her and her assistant Katrina\'s services. With what little information and time they had to work with they did an amazing job and we are so pleased we hired her.
I was very happy with the service that Amy provided.
for the price she charged me, I received so much more than I anticipated.
She was able to meet with me several times before our wedding and was always available for email chats when I had questions.
On our big day, she took care of the details and made sure my new husband and I were well taken care of.
I would recommend to a friend who is looking for a "day of" coordinator.
Without Amy, I have no idea how my wedding would have run as smoothly as it did. She was absolutely on top of everything and made sure that our wishes were carried out exactly as we had discussed during the months prior to our wedding. If there was a problem during our wedding, we didn't worry about it.
She also has an extensive network of vendors that she can recommend. She helped us find a photographer and videographer that were within our price range and suggested some photobooth vendors that were available on our date. She worked smoothly with all our vendors (i.e. she doesn't require that you use only the ones she "approves".)
If you are on the fence about hiring a day-of coordinator, talk to Amy. Her initial consultation is no-obligation, and afterwards you'll have a great idea of what a day-of coordinator can do for you and whether or not you want one. (You probably do, unless you have a hyper-organized friend who can stand up to pushy people and is willing to take on the stress of making sure your wedding day comes off perfectly or a really really simple wedding.) We decided it was worth the money to let our friends enjoy themselves at our wedding.
While she can't guarantee that your vendors will do what you hired them to do, she can make sure that they make it right. She will make sure that the stuff you want to take back home is taken back home. She will run your wedding rehearsal if you need her to. She will confirm your vendors the week of the wedding. She will arrive at the venue before the vendors do and make sure things are set up properly, and set out your table decorations. (She also helped with decorating our venue.)
I recommend her services without hesitation. Several people at our wedding would too.
I was very impressed by Amy's professionalism, attention to detail, and helpfulness at our son's wedding. Amy really listened to the bride and groom and respected their wishes while making timely and appropriate suggestions. She was easy to work with, eager to please, and extremely organized. The event flowed smoothly and everyone was overjoyed with the outcome. When the event was over, she made sure that everything was accounted for and everything in its appropriate place.
I CAN NOT EXPLAIN IN WORDS HOW FREAKIN AMAZING AMY IS!!!!! I HAVE NEVER SEEN SOMEBODY GO OUT OF THERE WAY FOR EVERYTHING. LOST MY DJ, PHOTOGRAPHY, AND VIDEO TWO WEEKS BEFORE MY WEDDING DUE TO FRAUD AND SHE FOUND ALL OF THEM FOR ME IN THE AMOUNT OF ONE DAY AND SO REASONABLE IT WAS CRAZY.
IT WAS THE BEST DAY OF MY LIFE AND AMY MADE THAT HAPPEN. DONT LOOK ANY FURTHER SHE IS THE BEST OUT THERE. LOVE YOU AMY YOUR THE BEST
Amy allowed us to have the most memorable wedding of our lives. She advocated for us, kept us organized and brought great ideas. She was prepared for all the unexpected events, which ouccured on our day. We can't say enough about how wonderful her service was to us, we highly recommend her for any special event.

If I could give SIX stars for every category I would. Amy was PERFECT PERFECT for our "day of" wedding coordination for 125 guests and organizing our 6 different vendors (venue, cake, music, food, flowers, photographers, etc.). For "value" I would give her TEN stars. Don't be fooled by the fact that she probably charges less then many of her competitors - Amy offers TOP-NOTCH service and made our wedding as perfect and memorable as possible.
Amy was amazing. I was really far behind on all of the planning but she reassured me and pointed me in the right direction and I was able to get everything done in time. On the day of, I had been so busy with everything that I didn't have the chance to write up a plan for the day. Without any instructions Amy coordinated the ceremony and reception. Her assistant was a great asset as well. The ceremony site was setup, ready and perfect and so was my house where I had the reception. Amy and her assistant went above and beyond and helped in every way they could. I give Amy my highest recommendation. Brides, Amy will make your day perfect. Thanks Amy!
Amy is a very high-energy person who has lots of ideas and contacts within the wedding industry. Amy provided day-of coordination services for my wedding. Even though I had a very small group, she gave me 100% focused service. Amy is very responsive to emails and went out of her way to suggest ideas and vendors. I received a discount on my DJ as a result of her recommendation. I would highly recommend Amy's services to other brides!
I could not imagine my wedding day without Amy, she was amazing!! I wish I could have rated her with six stars! Anyone looking for a DOC or planner should give Amy a call, just one consult with her and I felt as if we knew eachother forever. She listens and advises on everything you wish...I really do not know what I would have done without her!
She is the best!!!!! Before I was stressed out, everything seemed to be going down hill. As soon as I met Amy the stress was gone. I was sooo happy. She has asked every question and has been there for everything. I couldnt of asked for anyone better. We loved her sooo much my friend and my sister are also hiring her for their wedding!!!! I highly recommend Affairs by Amy 100%
my wedding was awesome. I would definitely recommend Amy to anyone needing help with day of coordination. she was a pleasure to work with
Amy was an absolute dream to work with! I was on the fence about hiring a day-of-coordinator, but having gone through everything now, I can honestly say it was the best money spent!! She was thoughtful, creative, approachable and extremely professional making sure all of the little details that we slaved over for months and months found a place, and our vision was complete.
We also loved knowing that we could count on her to be there to give us a schedule and make sure that all of the activities that we wanted got fit in before the clock struck midnight. Understated and unassuming, Amy is a joy to work with. She didn't bark orders or yell--you wouldn't even know she was there at times--but could still rest assured knowing that everything was in VERY capable hands.
And, even though we only officially hired her for the day-of, she was always quick to respond before and ready to answer any of our questions and/or concerns. She had some wonderfully creative ideas too, which helped us to further enhance our "oranges" theme.
If you are even considering hiring a coordinator, I'd say look no further. Amy is your gal!! I won't be getting married again myself, but if I was, she's the one I'd call!!!!
Amy always seems very professional, but fun. The pictures of the weddings she has done are incredible - so creative! She loves her work and really gives it her "all." I would completely trust her to organize a wedding from start to finish and not have a worry in the world.
Amy is Personable, Detail focused, fun and Friendly, and we have worked together many times over the last several Years and every time it has been a delight. Yes, call Amy if your in need of a Super Planner!
Do you want your event to run smoothly? Amy is a planner that will do just that. She is sure to keep your vendors in the loop with constant communication. She is excellent at providing customer service. I highly recommend!
Amy is a Bride's dream coordinator. And DJ's love her because she makes the events run so smoothly! Looking froward to working with you again soon Amy!
Affairs By Amy is one of the most sought after event coordinators in the wedding industry. Revs. Pat & Kelly of A Forever After Wedding, have worked with Amy and have heard the raves from couples & the professional vendors who work with her. We always strongly recommend hiring event coordinators and without question, Amy is one the best. Having been in the wedding industry for many years and seeing what 'can go wrong at weddings' we know that with her there is literally nothing that could have run smoother during your wedding. Our advice is hire professionals, and Amy certainly is that
We have worked with Amy on numerous events now and I must say that she is one of the best coordinators we have seen. She has always been organized and prompt and the events she coordinates runs smoothly. We have been at many events where things are delayed and you could tell that even the coordinator are stressed out. Amy is always upbeat and professional and we would recommend her to all couples out there that are planning to get married.
I had the pleasure of working with Amy at a beautiful seaside wedding at the Del Mar Powerhouse park. As a ceremony musician, it is rare for me to be contacted by wedding planners prior to the wedding. With Amy, my experience was much different. She contacted me a week ahead of the wedding to make sure that we were on the same page for all the ceremony arrangements.
When I arrived to the ceremony site on the day of the event, Amy was there putting the final touches on a beautiful ceremony setup. Everything was in order well ahead of the ceremony start time, and Amy made sure that all of the other vendors onsite had her contact information in case anything came up.
Of course, the wedding ceremony went extremely well and all the transitions were seamless. Amy was obviously busy but she remained calm, cheerful, and friendly to everyone. I can't wait for the next time I get to partner with Amy for a perfectly planned wedding...
For any Bride and Groom reading this endorsement: I am Rev. Michael and I Officiate at all locations in Orange County. And now, one of my top favorite Wedding Coordinators is Amy of Affairs by Amy. Amy is, without a doubt, one the best, most flexible, organized, relaxed and the nicest coordinator to work with. I received many rave reviews from the Wedding couple and party not only regarding the way she handles the Ceremony but the reception as well. I would be remiss in not telling you to at least call Amy. If you wish to know more, feel free to contact me at ReverendMichael@ReverendMichael.com http://www.ReverendMichael.com. Rev. Michael
I cant say enough awesome things about Amy. She is on it. Attentive to details and makes the day go so smoothly not only for her brides and grooms but her vendors which is huge. As photographers that allows us to do what we do best and that is take pictures [without needless distractions] I have done MANY weddings without coordinators and I can honestly say that it can be chaos. Timing is off and things arent happening the way they need to and ultimately shots are missed due to poor planning + the brides and grooms are stressed out. ALL THAT being said I have had weddings with coordinators involved and the outcome was nearly the same. So a GOOD coordinator is worth every dollar. Out of 100+ weddings that I have done I can honestly say only 2 coordinators stand out in my mind. Amy is one of them. So while you could keep browsing profiles and try n go hire someone else on here I would highly advise you to stop and bookmark this page and then give her a call... IMO you have found the best one available... you can thank me later.
Amy is a profesional and caring planner with a heart of gold. She is creative and timely and knows how to get things done. She can be involved as much or as little as you need and caters to many different budgets. Be sure to sit down with her for a little while and you will see how she can help make your perfect day flow even better!
The most awesome event planner out there! Shes so great and she goes way beyond your expectations! love her!!!!
Amy called me when her clients had lost their DJ and were looking for a new one who could handle her clients' alternative tastes. Amy and her client met with me in her professional studio, and after a good meeting, her clients booked and long story short-- We had an amazing ceremony and reception. I've never seen a coordinator do so much on the day of. From helping with wrapping their arch to positioning flowers and directing the wedding party on how to fulfill their roles (inventory transportation, set up, etc.), she's one dedicated person who, along with a team of capable and well-trained interns, can definitely handle any loophole you throw at her and come out with her clients smiling and happy. I'll definitely work with her again and recommend her to anyone needing a San Diego Wedding Planner that she fits into the budget of.
Oh, and I did a live first dance mix using turntables and vinyl for the client, and Amy was gracious enough to record the dance floor portion of it so we could put together this video for the client:...
Amy does a truly amazing job with weddings. I always recommend at the very least getting a day of planner and if possible, full wedding planning makes all the difference in the world. Check out Affairs by Amy!
Amy did a great job of helping our clients with all of their special needs for their amazing wedding & reception. She was very organized and on top of things and helped us to make sure that everything was perfect for Yian & Vivienne's wedding. We hope to work with her again very soon :-)
Working with Amy was a breeze! She was very organized and creative. We hope to work with Affairs by Amy soon.
