From the Mother-of-the-Bride, I can honestly say that having Amy help us was the BEST decision we made! From negotiating our contract at the venue to helping us find the best vendors, Amy was a wonder. Her contacts are widespread and her reputation well-deserved. Our wedding was flawless in the timing the day-of the event, and her calm demeanor and super organization made it incredibly easy for us... Oh, and she does up a mean bustle!! Hiring First Comes Love was the FIRST and best decision we made.
Choosing First Comes Love and Amy as our wedding planner was hands down the best decision we made during the entire wedding planning process! I initially chose them because they were rated very highly and their office happened to be across the street from our apartment. We met with Amy and she was warm, friendly, and really took the time to get to know us and what we envisioned. Picking them was a no-brainer at that point. Amy worked with us for almost 18 months during our engagement and she was there for us every step of the way and was always a few steps ahead of us, letting us know what needed to be done next. Amy was so incredibly helpful with any questions or suggestions we needed. My approach in terms of wedding planning was that I am certainly not an expert (nor do I want to be!), and didn’t have time to do tons of research on my own. So, I absolutely LOVED being able to ask for Amy’s opinion about things and just have her give you “the scoop” about something or give you a few different options with her honest opinion about them. So many of my friends who have used different wedding planners have complained about them . Not only do I have zero complaints about their services, I would recommend them without hesitation!
Amy at First Comes Love went above and beyond any and all expectations I could have ever dreamed. Since our very first meeting Amy was so honest and helpful. When I contacted her to upgrade to the more expensive package, she actually told me I didn't need it. Whhaatt?!? A vendor with integrity? I could hardly believe it. And even though I didn't get the more expensive package she still treated me like I was the only client in the world. She was always accessible, gave incredible recommendations, and actually helped us stay on budget. In my eyes she is a super woman. If all the help she provided planning the wedding wasn't enough, the day of the event she was like my fairy godmother. I was completely unorganized, I had a billion DIY projects that I dumped on her the day before the wedding, even though I swore I wouldn't be one of those last minute brides. I was supposed to leave a general guideline for Amy to help her navigate the tornado I had left for her the day before and I left her nothing. But she still managed to take my disaster and transform it into an event more awe inspiring than I could have ever imagined. I still have people telling me it was one of the best, most entertaining, organized, beautiful weddings they have ever been too. For so many reasons, I couldn't be happier and I can't recommend Amy enough!
From the planning stages to hours after the wedding ended, these ladies are remarkable. Their attention to detail, quality, and care of their clients is bar none. They are well connected with excellent vendors and they truly assemble a "dream team" for your big day. Not tomention, they are fun and easy to work with. I had my dream wedding thanks to First Comes Love. Would recommend to any couple who needs help coordinating their wedding.
We were married just two short weeks ago and Amy coordinated our absolutely amazing day! There are so many wonderful and fantastic compliments we could give, but to start off our list, the most impressive and spectacular part was our chance/opportunity to simply relax, enjoy and take-in every moment - EVERYTHING else was taken care of! She was always very cognizant of our tastes, provided very helpful background or details about a vendor to help in our decision and would consider our budget as part of her suggestions. Without writing a novel, we aren't going to be able to thank Amy enough for the absolutely beautiful day she coordinated for our wedding, but our truly best compliment to her is she allowed us to be present in the most important moments throughout our day. Thank you Amy and to all those wishing for the perfect day, reach out to Amy for a little help along the way.
First Comes Love gave us the wedding of our dreams! We had ideas but Amy and FCL brought them come to life. We knew that having a wedding planner from Day 1 would be essential to creating our masterpiece for the greatest day of our lives. FCL offers all the connections and insight you need for vendors, can save you on costs with their relationships with vendors, and even will broaden their scope of vendors just to give you exactly what you are looking for! Amy made us feel important. As if we were her only wedding and focus because she paid such close attention to our desires and kept in constant communication. I sent Amy literally hundreds of emails and she responded to every single one of them with sincerity. My wedding day was completely stress-free and FCL worked incredibly hard to bring everything together! We had so many items, vendors, and a huge wedding party/family and Amy rolled with it with such grace and ease. My husband and I will forever be grateful to the amazing Amy and FCL. Our wedding day was above and beyond our expectations! You must hire FCL and I promise you it will be the best decision you make in your entire planning process.
Perfection! All we had was a venue and church in mind prior to getting First Comes Love on board. Once we met with Amy, there it was smooth sailing! We did not think it possible not to be stressed but there was no stress at all! It was so fun working with Amy and so easy! We loved everything about First Comes Love and HIGHLY recommend! The wedding was everything we dreamed of and more! Thank you a million times!
Our wedding was truly the best day ever but this would not have been imaginable with out the amazing help and impeccable taste and planning of First Comes Love! Not only did we make the best choice when we choose First Comes Love but it took our wedding from dream to a real life fairytale! Every request I had was handled with precision, every question we had was met with invaluable advice and First Comes Love took ownership of our wedding as if it was their wedding. This is a once in a lifetime day and First Comes Love treated it as such! I could not ask for more professionalism or attention to detail than First Comes Love delivered. Thank you Amy, you were the best!
I worked with Amy for 2 years (yes, two YEARS) to plan my Scripps Seaside Forum wedding in La Jolla, CA. It was the most beautiful and amazing event ever. Her recommendations for everything were spot on (and i am extremely hard to please joy) the flowers, food, photographer and band were phenomenal and Amy kept her cool throughout the entire process and my multiple bridal meltdowns! She is totally your person if you want to be kept at ease and on track during your wedding planning process. I loved working with her, Amy is the best!
