I wanted to thank you for the incredible job you did with the wedding. I am very aware of the fact that there were countless moving pieces throughout this whole process, and you did not miss a beat. It was a huge event to pull off, and you did it flawlessly. Everything was picture perfect, and I will tell you that Sunny is thrilled and she "would not change a single thing." As the mother of the bride, to be able to be care free and soak in every minute of such a special day was truly a blessing!

I so appreciate your patience, kindness, hard work, talent and skill. Again, thank you.

Planning a wedding can be quite the challenge, however, we found with the guidance of the staff of Platinum Weddings and Events that our journey was made seamless. It was our goal to give our daughter a wedding she'd remember with fondness but not to have it "staged." Platinum Weddings and Events staff worked like a well oiled machine. They were visible when needed and worked tirelessly behind the scene without being intrusive.

Their extensive knowledge of vendors, event functions, networking and years of experience was invaluable. Finally, Amy (Platinum's founder) and Haley, with whom we principally dealt, were both very professional and highly personable. We highly recommend Platinum Weddings and Events to anyone who is seeking excellence and quality planning a wedding. They really are Platinum!

I want to personally thank you for the time and effort you put into the wedding for Megan and John. I know it is your job but you were not only professional but you were calm and patient even when the rest of us were not. You did a great job with all of us girls on Friday for the Bridal Party day. From coming up with plan B for the breakfast to taking Jessica in the car when she could not ride on the bus. You did a great job of being right there when we needed anything but yet never being seen. And once again you kept everything together and flowing at the rehearsal dinner.

I don't think that Amy could have a better assistant than you. Once again on Saturday for the wedding you kept calm and patient and sweet even when I started to panic over the cake cutting or the table sinking and I'm sure many other things that were happening. You personally helped to create the dream wedding for Megan and John.

You went beyond your duties to help John with all the items at the Ranch on Sunday morning. I really appreciate...

Hiring Platinum Weddings and Events was the number one best decisions we made. Amy and her team were amazing every single step of the way. Not only is Amy, but her entire team, incredibly organized, flexible, creative, responsive, but the attention to every detail helped make our wedding have that "Wow" factor. Amy is also one of the sweetest and friendliest people you will ever meet. Platinum Weddings introduced us to the most amazing vendors, scheduled very organized visits, and attended every vendor meeting. Amy and her team wrote down all notes and ideas so my fiance and I didn't have to worry about a thing. Above all, Platinum Weddings ran everything perfectly the entire Wedding Weekend. My parents are still receiving phone calls and notes from our friends and family complimenting everything about our Wedding!! John and I would have never had the wedding of our dreams without Platinum Weddings. Best day of our lives and we wouldn't change a thing about it. We would recommend Platinum Weddings and Events to everyone we know!!!

Although our wedding day has yet to occur, I can already tell you that it would not have been possible without the team at Platinum Weddings and Events. My fiance and I made the decision to have our wedding in Austin, a city that we have fallen in love with over the years. Only problem - we live just outside of Boston.

Because we are having a destination wedding, the majority of our communication is completed via conference calls and/or email exchanges. They are very understanding of busy schedules, and can organize these calls at a convenient time for everyone. Every single question that has come up has been responded to promptly.

When it came to travel to Austin for walkthroughs, tastings, and other various meetings, it couldn’t have gone any more smoothly. Though we had a very busy several days, each meeting was scheduled effectively, and vendors were narrowed down to those that she felt would best match our personalities. They truly knocked it out of the park! We were able to condense what could have been several months worth of meetings into just four days....

Just a quick note to say a huge 'thank you' for your sterling efforts for Angela & Mitch's wedding. It was a beautiful occasion, and a truly memorable one, and we were so pleased that everything went so well. Your polish and professionalism is wonderful and we all thoroughly enjoyed meeting you and getting a feel for the work and effort that goes into making such a special evening - not just for the bride & groom but also for every single guest. I really appreciate your help too with organizing the brunch, which went swimmingly well, and it was a really great idea from the social standpoint, as it gave everyone an opportunity to say fond farewells. Everyone that came mentioned that it was quite unusual but also an excellent idea and they all really enjoyed it. It was just right! Best of luck with future occasions!! Kind regards,

I don't know how I'm ever going to thank you and 'pay you back' for taking such good care of us throughout our wedding 'process'. I know you realize more than anyone there how much goes into a wedding. And with the added joy of 'unusual' circumstances, it could have been very difficult. But you made it look so easy. Thank you for all your support, for the hours of planning and negotiating and caring. Thank you as well for your encouragement and kindness. The old expression of 'we never could have done it without you' has never been so true. For everything, bless you!

Claire + David Seeger

Thank you so much for all that you did to make our wedding the unforgettable event it was. We really appreciate all your contributions- from the early planning stages, to recommending vendors, to being the substitute driver on the wedding day, to making sure that everything was accomplished on the wedding day given the last minute changes. You were an invaluable resource and we sincerely appreciate all your contributions to our special day.

Teresa + Mike Schaffer

Where do we begin? Mike and I can't even begin to tell you how fabulous you were! I absolutely can't imagine planning the wedding without you. Not only did you make everything perfect for the wedding day, but you also make doing all the wedding planning actually fun! I hear about so many brides who don't enjoy the weeks leading to the wedding. But, with you, I could sit back and enjoy the time and cherish the moments of excitement and joy before the wedding with out having to worry about the details. I am an admitted control freak so for me to tell you that I could step back and let you handle the details is a very big compliment. You were everything we wanted and needed in a wedding consultant and I can't recommend you enough! I also wanted you to know that our family and friends were very impressed with you and Anthony. Thank you again for all your hard work and time.

Michelle + Matt Stedman

To the best consultant a bride could ever ask for. You were the greatest and we will always be thankful for all your help making our wedding wonderful. Not only are you a great coordinator, but we have found a great friend too.

Judy Ann Eichenbaum | Mother of the Bride

How can we ever thank you enough?! We are so fortunate that you agreed to take us on. Heaven knows what we would have done without you, as a matter of fact, I don't even want to think about it. Until someone sees for himself or herself what a wedding coordinator does, one can't possibly image the work and details involved- it's amazing. Once again, thank you for putting up with my barrage of questions, etc. and for maintaining patience And professionalism all the while! If I had to deal with the many details on Sunday that were necessary, I would have gone crazy and certainly would not have been able to enjoy that special day. I should certainly feel a great sense of accomplishment for everything went beautifully- even better than anticipated. Take good care and continue to be Austin's ##1 wedding coordinator. You are with us! Many thanks with fondness and appreciation,

Nicole + Stephen Sicola

I don't know if we got to tell you how amazing you are, but we will tell you now. Our wedding was the most 'happenin' party I've ever had! I mean, people are still telling us how fun and beautiful it was. I was even happy and carefree. You took care of everything for us, and forever and ever, we'll always look back on our wedding day as a fun, exciting party. Not like we're glad it's over J In fact, sometimes I wish it were still about to happen. We love you; Amy- and you did an awesome job!!

Tara + Mark Levy

Thank you so much for your invaluable contributions to our wedding. With your careful attention to every detail of the wedding, we were actually able to relax once the weekend's events began-to take the time to enjoy ourselves and spend time with our friends and family. When we began the wedding planning process over a year ago, we were confident that you would help us create fun, exciting, and wonderful weekend. It was all of those and more. Thank you as well for your fabulous vendor recommendations-Miss Janette's cakes swept our guests off their feet and the set up was perfect! Many Thanks,

Tiffany + Mike Nels

I understand that it is not socially acceptable to use these cards until Sunday, but I figured that you would forgive my transgression. You ought to be the first to receive a note on this stationery, given your instrumental role in putting everything into place…your guidence; support, patience, and humor have all been such a blessing over the past nine months. I can only begin to thank you for all you have done and will do to pull off what I know will be a magical and beautiful day. I know that I may forget to thank you for all of the hard work on the BIG DAY but you know that we are incredibly grateful. We simply could not have done it without you and really would not have wanted to. Much thanks and much friendship.

Emily + Matthew Theriot

Now that Matthew and I have finally gotten settled out here in California, I wanted to officially thank you for everything you did to help make my wedding so amazing. You were the best thing to happen to me during my wedding planning. You were able to take thoughts and ideas of mine and make them work together. You helped me to recreate my dreams. My wedding was everything I have ever imagined, dreamed and hoped for. It was perfect and I owe it all to you. I don't really know if this simple card could ever truly express to you my sincere gratitude and appreciation for all that you have done. But, I hope it gives you an idea. Once again, you and Anthony are the best.

Mali + Nik Dah

Gosh, Mali and I have finally caught our breath. So I wanted to let you know we really had a blast at our wedding and enjoyed ourselves! Thank you for all the preparation, consulting, execution, and most of all the last minute details you and Anthony did for us. Our families all have sent emails and phone calls about how well they thought the wedding went and like you told us, if it doesn't go exactly as planned, no one will ever know. It was especially great knowing you were always in the background taking care of things. The flowers, cakes, pictures etc. were all very nice! I am sure we will continue to see you around Austin!

Linda + Larry York

In one word, describing Amy and her service…WONDERFUL. There are simply not enough strong adjectives to explain how thrilled we were with Amy and her team. We had a very extensive wedding way out of town at our Ranch- 250 people coming mainly from Austin. We had LOTS Of extras for the 100 children we had at the wedding. She arranged everything form the Amy's Ice Cream, frozen lemonade (for our daughter), to the petting zoo, pony rides, horse drawn carriage, clowns, cozmo jumper and artist for cartoon pictures of the guests. We had flowers everywhere, handing candles from the trees, and lots of tents to manage. We had to bring in our own electricity and portable bathrooms (real bathrooms- not port a potties); they were air-conditioned complete with lighted mirrors and flowers. We had to have cooler fans, mobile refrigerators for ice and extra lights for the parking area as we started in the light and finished in the dark. She had to arrange for a stage, dance floor, extra food for our 20 attendants in the wedding, singer and keyboard not to mention the band, chairs for ceremony,...

Thanks so much for all your good work. You really eliminated a lot of the stress that can come from such an event. It was so nice to be able to concentrate on each other and our guests and not even thing about anything else. We really enjoyed spending time with you. Warm Wishes!

Lorra + Theo

Theo and I have both been very busy. As you know, we both took new jobs the very day we returned from our honeymoon. However, we would be remiss if we did not take the time to thank you for the outstanding job you did during our wedding planning, as well as during our wedding rehearsal, ceremony and reception. Your services were invaluable. During the past few months, we have talked to couples who were seeking reference information regarding your expertise. We emphatically told them how wonderful you were during the wedding process and the valuable asset and offered services work far more than money could ever buy. Thank you for your competence and best of luck in the future. Please continue to use us as a reference so we can continue to sing your praises.

I wanted to thank you for all the hard work and efforts that went into Jennifer and Matt’s wedding. I loved having “you” in charge and it set my mind free from all the normal worries that take place the last few weeks of the wedding.

The bride, groom and their families will always be grateful for all you have done to make Stacy and George’s wedding everything they dreamed it would be. Amy, you personally have made this adventure a pleasure. The professionalism exhibited by you and your staff at all times guaranteed an event that we have been proud to host and that our guests thoroughly enjoyed. I wish I could pass on the many glowing comments, observations, and expressions of pleasure we have received from our guests. The attention to detail and the quality of the vendors was appreciated and acknowledged. Please extend our many thanks and appreciation to Dawn and Anthony for all that they have done; and as the years go by, we hope you will keep in touch. We would like to know that the Mader family is doing well. Thank you, Amy, for a beautiful and memorable wedding.

Fondly, Bert and Frank Smeal Parents of the Bride

I can’t thank you enough for all your hard work and planning for the school benefit. It takes a very special person to put so much time and love into something that doesn’t even directly benefit them. Greg, Dawson and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Angela + Mitch Abney

In your last note to us you indicated that the end of our wedding was bittersweet because on one hand, you were glad the event was so successful, but that you were also a bit sad not to be working with us any longer. That note entirely sums up what you and Platinum Weddings & Events are all about- true concern and commitment, not only to the event itself, but to the people involved. We have never been so impressed with someone we hired for anything else before as we are with you. You gave us so much of your energy and time over the course of a year in order to make our wedding everything we wanted it to be. You never strayed from your upbeat and “can do” attitude and were always willing to listen to our concerns. Most importantly, you solved any problem that arose in the planning process without a minutes hesitation-and often your solutions ended up being better than we planned. It was also so wonderful to have piece of mind when it came to choosing our vendors- knowing that you had confidence in them and stood behind their work. It certainly made the planning...

Rebecca + Seth Krauss

I don’t even know where to begin thanking you. We have received so many comments and lovely notes from our guests going on and on about how great the wedding was and how it was the “funest” wedding they had ever been to. The evening was amazing. You made our wedding experience so fantastic I want to do it again! Thanks so much!

Leigh

While it is still fresh on my mind and I am still buzzing from the fun, I wanted to thank you. You and your team did an exceptional job. I didn't have to worry about a single detail and you anticipated everything that Eddie and I needed (even before it ocurred to us that we needed it). It was the happiest day of my life so far and I know that your hard work made it much more enjoyable for me. I know that there are many details that I never even had to consider for a moment - like the red wine's disappearance (I had no idea my friends could drink that much wine!) Thank you,

Susan + Bill

I owe everything to you for a spectacularly planned and orchestrated event! Your attention to detail, the preparedness of you and your staff, the monitoring of every moment on saturday to make all go smoothly, never overreacting to the 1 minute prior arrival of the mariachis! , the calming of Leigh, the ability to get those lights down and out for the MOB, ordering mas vino(all of our pals were the consumers, I fear) down to finding the lost earring, and packing food for Leigh and Eddie in the limo... we relished every moment and have you to thank for a beautiful, flawless event that you and the bride planned. Leigh told us sunday am that it was the happiest day of her life, and she knew there were more to come... my sincere appreciation for your incredible skillls, humor and professional guidance. Our eternal gratitude.

Thank you so much for helping make our wedding so special! It truly would not have been half as wonderful without all of your expertise and knowledge. Sorry this is so late- it took us longer to get settled in Dallas than I thought. I hope we keep in touch.
