I'm Amanda, The owner and operator of Amanda K Events & Designs. I am North Carolina born and raised, and I never dreamed life would lead to such a dream job such as wedding planning; however, after getting a degree in English Education, I ended up working part time at a venue in Downtown Greensboro which led to my passion of wedding planning, coordination, and event management.
I love getting to call North Carolina home with my wonderful husband Ryan and cute fur babies Fox and Scully. However, I try to take every opportunity to see the world around me!
I have been in the wedding industry for nine years and have helped couples design their dream day from start to finish time and time again. I specialize in day of and month of coordination, but I also have select rental pieces that couples can rent. I love focusing on making your wedding all you have dreamed about from the beginning of the planning process.
I look forward to meeting you and "talking shop" aka turning that Pinterest board into a reality!
Frequently Asked Questions!
Why should I hire a wedding planner and is Amanda K Events the right fit for me?
I have been in the wedding industry in North Carolina since 2014. With many years of experience, vendor relationships, and industry know how, I have the experience of someone you want by your side. Hiring a planner is a totally personal experience and it can save you money and stress in the long run, but I won't lie and tell you that it is not a luxury. Weddings can be expensive, and if I am not the right fit, I have always said what's meant to be will be. I can't wait to walk along side you on your wedding journey, but if I am not the planner for you, that is Ok!
How many people are on your team?
Amanda K Events & Designs has one other planner on the team with two assistants available at this time. Average events are lead by Amanda or Krista and assisted by Jubilee or Sofia. Amanda works with all clients. However, she leads on Full Planning days. Krista leads for our Event Management service clients.
Is your team available for travel?
100% yes! Sign me up! My passport is waiting patiently. My dream location is Lake Como Italy. However, my favorite NC venue is anywhere with a mountain backdrop!
What is required to book Amanda and her team?
To book with the team, a 1/3 deposit is required with two additional 1/3 payments. Payment plans can be set up for those who request them; however, payments are non-refundable as work is being done prior to the event day.
Do you have a minimum budget that you work with?
I have worked with budgets of all shapes and sizes and I truly believes all weddings are unique. Please don't hesitate to reach out. However, we do find that our services best align with budgets that are around $400 per guest for the entire wedding day.
Do you only work with certain vendors.
While the first step to planning is budgeting, the second step will be curating a list of vendors tailored specifically to your wedding day. No, you do not have to book vendors I recommend as they may not be the best fit for your day. However, I have vetted each vendor for their professionalism and quality of service. Each vendor that I recommend to you will be a vendor you will not regret!
