"You NEED to have Amber be a part of your wedding day! I couldn't even count how many people told me 'your coordinator is amazing, so funny, so awesome' over and over throughout the weekend. She led our rehearsal with a huge bridal party, set up our day beautifully, and helped us whenever we needed it the entire day. Prior to our wedding day, we knew we could trust her to keep us updated on all the regulations changing with the pandemic. Her energy, humor, and sense of calm are unlike any other. One of the best decisions we made!"

I am the founder of Amber Terese Events. I’m a wife, mama to three incredible little humans we adopted in 2021 and an adorable Goldendoodle. After finding a passion for the wedding industry serving as a hair and makeup artist for over 13 years specializing in management and on site wedding services. I started this company in 2014 to serve clients in a different way. I have degrees and experience in theatre, music, project management and education which are much more helpful in the wedding industry than one may think.
I believe that truly serving others is one of the most impactful ways to show love. I want you to only feel the happiness and love that surrounds you on your very special day. Not a worry or care in the world. Not looking at the clock. Not trying to track down the missing wedding party member for a photo. You’ve got better things to do.
I use my skills to craft events with a timeless appeal. I have experience planning intimate gatherings from 50 guests to weekend long celebrations for my clients and 600 of their closest friends and family members. I am able to connect with couples on a personal level and hone in on their wedding day vision to incorporate meaningful, memorable details that reflect their authentic love story.
I use my vast knowledge of the wedding industry to guide couples throughout their wedding planning journey resulting in the
best day ever
I will do just about anything to make people laugh. I have no shame at this point in my life and can often be found making ridiculous faces and noises behind your photographer on your wedding day so that your Flower Girl, Dog of Honor, or Grandpa is looking in that general direction in your portraits.
I want you to only feel the happiness and love that surrounds you on your very special day. Not a worry or care in the world.
Let's be honest, often wedding planners are viewed as being over the top and frivolous, and if that's the type of planner you want..I am not ya girl. I am down to earth and have no problem helping my clients keep their feet on the ground (and their budget non-cringeworthy).
I don't want you to include every one of the top wedding pins on Pinterest, I want your wedding to create the NEW top pins on Pinterest using the details and story that is uniquely YOURS.
