PAST COUPLES’ COMMENTS
Elegance was something we strived for throughout the process. It was important for us to set a solid impression for our guests upon their arrival to set the tone for the wedding and the rest of the evening.
Amy Katz was our wedding planner, and she and her team went above and beyond to cater to our ideas and budget. Amy and her team created a 15-page timeline that basically had every 5-minute increment of the day thought out — aka no details left to spare.
Amy and her team kept us on schedule throughout the day. We even had time to spare after pictures so I was able to change my hair and have a second hair style.”
I worked with Amy to plan my wedding that took place in late August. Amy and everyone at her company were so amazing. They worked with us for an entire year, helping us to bring our wedding together which was no easy task given that we invited over 500 guests, had 400 people attending our wedding, with about 100 of them arriving from overseas, and had a 22-person wedding party.
Amy was there every step of the way helping us with everything from the ceremony, the venue, the DJ, the decor, the photographer, invitations, hotel accommodations for 100 guests at two different hotels, the bridal shower, the rehearsal dinner, transportation for the day of and for all of the airport arrivals and departures and all the activities in between. She even helped us plan a weeks’ worth of activities for our out-of-town guests, including a welcome dinner for 100 people, shopping and casino excursions and an amazing city tour with a double-decker bus.
I knew from the first time that I met with Amy that we were in good hands. She made herself available all day, every day. There was not one phone call or email that went unanswered which, if you’re a stressed out bride, is priceless as you know that you always have someone by your side to guide you through all the unexpected issues that may arise during the planning process. Although we had so many moving parts for our wedding, everything ran so smoothly thanks to Amy, her staff, and all her vendors. I can honestly say that we did not have any issues on the day of the wedding and everything went so smoothly we were actually shocked by how perfectly everything turned out.
They really helped us make the wedding of our dreams a reality and it was more beautiful than we could have ever imagined. If I could do it all over again, I wouldn’t change a thing. We will forever be so grateful to Amy because of everything that she’s done for us. I already miss talking to her everyday!!”

It’s really hard to put our entire experience in a few words in a review, as nothing can truly give it justice. It was nearly a year-long process working with Amy and her team, and there’s not a moment where it could’ve gone better. Amy was flexible where possible, but when a decision needed to be made, they would let us know and provide the options.
They were very cognizant of our budget and our preferences – Amy could not stress enough that it was our day and everything should be perfect to us. We never felt pressured to pick a specific vendor and there were always quality options laid out. On the actual day of, all we had to do was sit back, smile and enjoy it because Amy and her team were swarming around to have our backs and ensure everything went perfectly, which it of course did. I’d say it was the wedding of our dreams, but that would be a lie because it was better than anything we ever could’ve dreamed.
A special shout-out to Haley, Amanda and Regina for the help! We miss talking to all of them already!”

Two weeks after getting engaged, my fiance and I headed to Toronto for a yearlong adventure, so I was tasked with planning a New York wedding from a plane ride away. I did not know where to begin. After taking several trips just to pick a venue, I concluded that I needed a wedding planner.
Then I went on WeddingWire and found Amy. Choosing her was the only easy thing about wedding planning up until that point. She clearly had high standards and was totally “on” in our first conversation and thereafter.
I came into New York for one week about nine months before the wedding, and she made every single appointment, so we nailed everything important in ONE WEEK: florist, band, photographer, wedding dress, food. She knew all the best vendors and made these decisions very easy for me. She came to all of the meetings with the vendors and was very effective at acting as an intermediary, so that when the day came, they were the main contact for the vendors. She constantly communicated with us, and she always answered my questions quickly.
On the day of, she and her team were indispensable. I was truly a degree removed from the intricacies of the wedding, and I got to enjoy my party instead of wondering if things would be ready on time and the vendors were ok. It was a world class experience for me. I recommend hiring her and then LISTENING to her as she leads you through this exciting time!!”
