Amy Nichols is an amazing, organized and up to date planner who knows all things weddings like the back of her hand. She has been a crucial part of my wedding planning and I know I can count on her or any of her associates to have an answer for me on any questions I may have. I interviewed many different planners and often walked away feeling frustrated that I didnt have the "feeling" about any of them until my meeting with Amy. Our first meeting was casual, fun and low pressure. I knew instantly she was the one for our event and gave her the deposit check that night. I feel lucky to be among her brides this year and know any other bride who is lucky enough to work with her will feel the same. Definitely one of the best in California!

I hired Amy to help me with my wedding last month and it was worth every penny. I am so glad I was able to have her help me. I would have never thought of some of the things she brought up, like coordinating tablecloths for the cake table, DJ table, and cocktail tables. She even brought in her own candlelabra from home to put in the fireplace in the cocktail/dance room. With her help, everything went incredibly smoothly. Amy has a great eye for detail, she's honest, and will help you plan a wonderful, sophisticated wedding. You won't be disappointed!

Amy was a fabulous and tireless wedding planner. She offered wonderful creative ideas and walked that fine line between guiding us along and letting the wedding be our own. Her vendor lists were the best. I would definitely work with her again and would not hesitate to recommend her to any one.

Between losing our reception site, dealing with a flaky florist and keeping the peace between a couple of family members on rehearsal day, Amy remained calm, cool and collected. She was exactly what I needed in a wedding coordinator and she more than met the challenge. Thank you, Amy!! ox

My husband and I live in Michigan but were married in San Francisco. Without ever being able to meet in person with Amy or Erin, they helped us plan and execute our wedding. We felt instantly comfortable with both of them and trusted their expertise - and we were not disappointed. Our wedding day was perfect and any potential mishaps were averted! We cannot recommend them highly enough! Very deserving of more than 5 stars.

I adore Amy Nichols! My husband and I got married last year and since we were planning a mini-destination wedding for about 185 people, we decided we needed some help. After interviewing 4 or 5 coordinators, Amy definitely stood out. We hired her...and are so glad we did! She never let me down throughout the whole wedding planning process and was an absolute joy to work with. Although she didn't have too, Amy went above and beyond her "month of" planning duties and was there for us whenever we needed her. She helped us with organizing, decor, planning, timelines, and also helped secure amazing vendors in the area as well. Things I love about Amy: She has an amazing eye for detail and design, is super organized, is very good at dealing with people, and is an absolute sweetheart. She's also quite reasonable compared to other coordinators of her caliber, who will require a deposit before they even talk to you about your wedding! Not Amy, she offered helpful wedding advice and answered all my contract questions up front, and through it all had a calm, approachable style...I feel very lucky to have worked with her. So...if you are dreaming of a stylish wedding that you hope someone can help bring to life, hire Amy...she'll make your life so much easier!

I got married in one of the supposed 38,000 weddings that occurred on 10/10/10 and I couldn't have gotten through it without Erin Wood from ANSE. I hired Erin just a few months before getting married for the "month-of" services. She in all likelihood did a bit more than her contract required. She met with me at the flower mart to browse through some DIY options even though I decided in the end to go with a florist. She made the table numbers though which were gorgeous! Erin is organized, thoughtful, available and CALM, which is really important for the hectic big day. She is super sweet too which makes working with her all the more easy. She had timelines, vendor lists, etc-- very professional. I don't know how many times I uttered the words "thank god I hired Erin" on the day of my wedding. She is worth very penny and more. Thank you Erin and ANSE for making my wedding day a success!

Amy is wonderful! She is so wonderful that after working with her for years I decided to hire her for my own wedding. I am a wedding floral designer and when I got engaged I knew that Amy would be a great help in planning my own wedding.
Throughout the planning process she has been incredibly insightful and helpful. She knows so much and has so much experience. What I love most is that Amy is not pushy and never pressures me to do anything, while she is still very firm about what she knows works and does work.
Amy is also very enthusiastic and incredibly professional. She is quick to respond to emails and calls and always thoughtfully replies. This is a quality very important to me and she has exceeded my expectations.
I have referred Amy to many of my clients and now that I have had the experience of working with her from the other side of the planning process, I am even more happy that I have.

I just stated working with Amy, and she has been amazing thus far! She has helped keep my stress level down, and helps me stay focused and on track everyday! I look forward to the rest of our time together!

I have just started working with Amy and I don't know how I would be doing this without her. Even with the best of intentions to have a small and simple wedding, I've quickly realized there are still a million details. She takes the simplest idea and turns it into something special. Meanwhile, on the practical side of things, she thinks of every little detail and gives great advice. From her website and frequent appearance on blogs, etc., I know Amy can handle the biggest and most fabulous weddings, but what is impressing me is how every suggestion is very tailored to my wedding and reflects what I am looking for. She has great relationships with vendors too. I feel so lucky that I can enjoy the fun parts of wedding planning and trust Amy to take care the rest. I'll report back post-event!
