:: Certified Wedding and Event Planner ::
Amanda loves seeing her clients' faces and hearing their excitement when they see their designs and events for the first time - it's truly what makes her love her job!  In her down time, she loves watching TV and movies with hubby Ilario, chasing their young son around the house and playing with the fuzzy monster that is their cat Morris :o)

Favorite Food:  strawberries and biscuits (not necessarily together, lol!)
Most loved part of a wedding:  I love standing in the back of the church once the ceremony is under way - the evidence of joy between the couple is amazing!
Adored current wedding trend:  Personalization!  When Ilario and I were married in 2007 we made sure our day reflected us and I've forever grateful we did!
Little known fact:  I cheered in the 2000 Citrus Bowl Half Time Show (and I'm incredibly happy that the video is not online).
