Where have you been featured?
Ruffled, Charlotte Brides
What types of weddings do you specialize in?
We specialize in couples who are authentic to themselves. We have packages ranging from coordination to full-service planning and event design.
Why do couples love working with you?
Couples love working with us because we truly listen to their needs and what they want. Navigating a wedding can be a difficult task and there are times when it can be overwhelming. We take that stress away to help couples have the perfect day! I am constantly told that I am warm, genuine, and thoughtful.
What do you love most about being a wedding planner?
My favorite part of wedding planning (besides getting to know the couples!) is at the end of the night when the bride gives me a hug just before she leaves and tells me everything was amazing. It is the BEST feeling in the whole world when that happens and makes all the hard work and stress worth it.
How did you get started?
I started wedding planning as a way to express my creative side. I have always loved planning events and decided to take my talents to the world! 🙂
What budget range do you cater to?
Budgets are really dependent on the number of guests attending, but the average wedding for around 125 guests costs $30,000, most of which is the catering budget.
What typically happens at the beginning of the process when someone contacts you?
When someone contacts me, I like to schedule a quick phone call to ask questions about the couple and their wedding. This lets me get to know if we will be a good fit with each other and how to better price my services based on a few metrics.
How do you review the person that took your wedding day from great to extraordinary?? Amanda is amazing and makes the name of her company come to life – it’s not called Magnificent Moments Weddings by chance. She kept me on track every step of the way and stayed calm when all I could do was panic. Anytime I had an issue, she immediately came up with at least 2 or 3 possible solutions that I’d never even considered! She is extremely organized, proactive, easy to work with, upbeat, professional and never misses a deadline. Even my vendors were singing her praises!! My day would not have been half as special without her. Save yourself the headache and stress of looking for help or wondering if you can do it all and hire Amanda with Magnificent Moments immediately!
Magnificent Moments were amazing! Our wedding was beautiful and organized and better than I had imagined. I am not detail oriented and really didn’t know how to pull off the biggest event of my life. Amanda was always available and answered all our questions quickly. We both spent a lot of money on this event and Amanda kept us on budget and told us what to spend on and what didn’t make that much of a difference. She was there every step of the way and was excited with us which made all the difference. Our family really appreciated Magnificent Moments Wedding service and said several times that she was helpful behind the scenes during the day and before. She pulled off a flawless wedding!! We feel so blessed to of found Magnificent Moments and recommend them highly.
Amanda and her team made my wedding day absolutely perfect! I would recommend her to any and every couple who is getting married in the future. She made the wedding process, so stress-free and easy for me as a bride. My wedding turned out way better than I could have ever imagined thanks to Magnificent Moments! Everyone was so impressed with every single detail of my wedding, and I have Amanda to thank for all of that. She made everything come together and made our wedding day the best day ever!
