Two Red Shoes
I had a great experience with Two Red Shoes Event Planning! Amy was great with all the communication prior to the wedding. She is very detail oriented and easy to work with and the most important is she listened all my requests and even gave me feedback or recommendations how to make it better. Katie was great as well, she was the coordinator that actually came to execute everything on my wedding day, them two worked seamless that made me have no worry at all on my wedding, but to enjoyed! Everything went very smoothly as planned!!! Thank you for making all these happen for me, I received a lot of complements on my wedding from friends and family! Without Two Red Shoes, I will not have it so easy and enjoyable wedding like I would imagine.
Amy was amazing, she was there through every step of the preparation for the wedding day. She kept us organized, on track, and sane. The day of the wedding she had everything under control so we didn't have to worry about a thing. She brought food up to a private room for us. She resolved a mistake i had made during the getting ready process. She also stayed in constant contact with our photographer, DJ, Videographer, and Caterer. All and all it would not have been what it was without her, AMAZING!!
So you're engaged. Wonderful! Mazel Tov! May you be blessed with a lifetime of joy!
But before we get to that, first things first: you have a wedding to plan.
Speaking from experience, this is a prospect that can be both exciting and frightening (and occasionally nauseating). Let's take a second and think about what goes into a typical wedding. You'll need a venue, or possibly multiple venues if your ceremony and reception are in different places. Once that's booked you'll probably need to arrange some or all of the following: Food, drink, music, flowers, dresses, suits, cake, photographers, decorations, invitations, parking, hotel rooms, airfare, ground transport, and whose supposed to be taking what car to where and when. Throw in a rehearsal, a rehearsal dinner, a trip to the salon and a seating chart which seperates the cousins who have a feud running back to the last family wedding. And at this point, we are only planning things in the abstract.
Let's imagine your big day: take all the factors we've discussed, then add in all your closest family and friends plus a half dozen vendors and compress everything down into a matter of hours. There's a schedule to keep, a score of moving parts to coordinate, and a hundred potential minor crises which might need your attention. And remember, this is supposed to be fun! While all this potential chaos is going on around you, you're also hoping to look your best, feel your best, express your undying love and devotion to your spouse, and have the time of your life.
Upon reflection, its clear that pulling off even a modest wedding is a task which requires you to be part quartermaster, part drill sergeant, part ringmaster and part accountant, with a little bit of diplomat, therapist, DJ, caterer, choreographer and fashion designer thrown in the mix. I tell you this not to scare you, but to let you know that there are options available to help you cut through the crazy and make the most of your special day. One of the best wedding presents you can give to yourself is finding the right person to help you, someone who will take on responsibility and be your advocate during the whole process. Speaking from experience, choosing to have a good wedding coordinator is a wise decision.
And after making one wise decision, I suggest you make another and choose Amy to be that coordinator. Why? Because she's the best. I can only vouch for my particular wedding, but that's enough for me to make this claim with confidence.
My wife and I enjoyed a relatively laid back wedding, and we were blessed with many things: a great venue, a manageable guest list, reliable vendors, and good weather. Even with all this going for us, however, there were all sorts of potential hazards and migraines waiting out there, threatening to stress us our and sap the fun out of our special day. Luckily for us, we had Amy on our team. We asked her to coordinate our wedding, and she eagerly accepted the assignment. It turned out to be one of the most important decisions we made during the whole process as her experience and skills let us cut the stress and get the maximum enjoyment out of our celebration.
Amy is organized, hardworking and focused without being intimidating. She knew what questions to ask, what issues often come up, and how to handle any possible wild cards which are likely with an event like a wedding. She knows when to be flexible and when to be firm, and is a great point person for communicating with vendors. Most of all, she made sure our wedding was what we wanted it to be. That's her ultimate goal and she did everything possible to make it happen.
On the big day Amy was there to handle the unexpected and make sure everything went smoothly. She kept track of family and members of the wedding party and kept things on schedule. When we learned that another wedding was taking place only a stone's throw away from ours, Amy made sure that all guests got to the right party. When the cake needed to be moved or heaters put in place or the bar tab was running low or presents had to get packed up and taken home, she was there to act our our behalf and keep things running smoothly.
More than anything else, she gave us the peace of mind to let go and have a unforgettably fun day with the people who matter most to us in the world. That's what was important to us, and Amy made that a reality. We are grateful for all she did for us, and we know she will do the same for you.
Best of luck, have fun, and congrats!
I would not plan any event without the organization, creative mind and impeccable taste of Amy! She was able to listen and understand the kind of wedding we envisioned and went way above and beyond to make every aspect personal and perfect.
On top of being extremely professional, she's warm, thoughtful, genuinely cares about putting together a day that exceeds your expectations, and offers even the most stressed brides a great sense of calm from the start (which of course is not an easy task!). She is fabulous to work with--able to offer fantastic suggestions that worked with our price range while still getting a sense of our style and taste and what parts were the most important to us. I felt like I had a close friend with me throughout the entire planning process--(a close friend who coordinated vendors, put together a great timeline, and anticipated every potential wedding hurdle!)
On the day of the wedding, Amy worked her magic, constantly thought ahead and quickly (and usually unbeknownst to me or anyone else) took care of any issues that came up. She was everywhere, making sure every detail was executed as planned. We felt like we could completely relax and enjoy the day (so important!) and know that it would come together flawlessly.
I can't recommend Amy enough. She will be an invaluable part of your wedding planning process AND your special day.
Seamlessly delivered a stress free experience for bride and groom - Bravo!
I started planning events when I was just 17 years old and I haven’t stopped since! With a degree in Event Marketing and Management, I have coordinated large-scale events for Wolfgang Puck Catering & Events in Hollywood, Pebble Beach Resorts, and the American Heart Association. My love of weddings, however, takes the cake.
Getting married is a significant moment in life and I love to provide support and resources to brides and grooms so you can focus on what’s important: getting married. Instead of worrying about the logistics of the day, I want to take the lead so you, your families, and your guests can enjoy the festivities. My wedding philosophy is simple: build strong relationships, be overly organized, and make people feel good. And I like to have a bit of fun too! Two Red Shoes is all about rolling with class and a touch of sass.
My best wishes to you as you plan your wedding! I hope to hear from you soon!
