Valentine's Day

We are Honored ~

Greetings Friends ~

Well Wednesday was a COLD day in Nashville and schools were closed with the forecast of snow snow snow.  So I was working from home while my boys chilled out on their snow day.  While answering emails and calls  an unknown email address popped into my inbox.  It was from Vanessa with Wedding Industry Experts and here is what it said:

After 4 months of reviewing email referrals from across the globe, we have put together our first annual Honour Roll (Honor Roll ) and am happy to let you know that you’re included.

You were selected  for the 2014 Honour Roll because some of your work inspired either others in your area, or members of our team. Being on the Honour Roll is not an endorsement of your service or products,  it’s just a way to say thank you –  you did some awesome work in 2013 that inspired others and we want to recognize you.

You can see the Honor Roll here:

How honored are we to know that our work inspired others.  That while we were running ragged, sharing sleepless nights, traveling the globe and creating events that we believe are truly MAGICAL we blessed others.

So THANK YOUTHANK YOU to every client that trusts us with their day.  THANK YOU to every vendor that refers us, that tweets about us, that tags us and blogs about us.  THANK YOU to those that have believed in my dream even when I did not and stood by me and with me.  It is because of each and everyone of you that we are able to do what we do.

Wishing you a MAGICAL day ~


Opulence in Orchid – Our Entry into The Special Event 2014

Greetings ~

Hello and welcome to 2014!!  It sure entered like gangbusters here at the AMA offices!!  Towards the very end of 2013 we were tasked with creating a tabletop design for the 2014 Special Event tradeshow and conference coming to Nashville Jan 7th – 11th.  Now with the holidays being in the mix I’m not gonna lie we were a wee bit worried about creating an amazing design.  But alas when you get a call like that there is nothing else to do but say yes.  So Krisie started right in on the design and brought along some of our favorite vendors to help bring Opulence in Orchid to life!

We were beyond thrilled when we learned on Jan 8th that our table had WON in the category of tabletop design under $1,000 per table.  So now that the dust has settled and everyone has left the tradeshow floor and gone home we wanted to share with you some of the stunning photos courtesy of Scoobie’s Photographic Images and JMF.Photography – we hope you enjoy!!

Greetings from warm sunny West Palm Beach ~

It’s been a hectic 1st day but it is sooooo fabulous to see friends again that I only get to see a few times a year!  It’s even better when I get to meet some of my facebook friends in person and congratulate them on all the great happenings they have had this year!  But now onto business.  Part of this conference allows me to become re-certified as a Sandals rep.  What does this mean?  Well quite simply – are you planning a destination wedding, a honeymoon, an anniversary vacation or maybe a babymoon to Sandals?

Well we here at AMA can get it booked and be your one stop shop!!  Give us a call and allow us to help you plan the vacation in your dreams!!!!!!!

Once a year I (Courtney) head out to spend a few days with 400 wedding planners from the US, Canada and Japan.  It is truly something that I look forward to each year – a time to reconnect with old friends, meet some new friends but most importantly LEARN.  Learn what is new is the business, what is coming our way soon, how we here at AMA can better serve and assist our clients on a daily basis.  Well that time of year has arrived!!  Tomorrow evening I will board my American Airlines flight and head off to West Palm Beach FL.  While I am away know that Krisie is still busy creating a MAGICAL wedding this weekend and she will be in the office to answer any and all your needs!  I’ll try and update when I can from Florida!  Wishing you a most MAGICAL weekend filled with your very own Happily Ever After!
