On your wedding day we will be there to coordinate your day while you enjoy the moment.

Amy was absolutely incredible to work with and made my wedding day a really special event for me and my family! I planned my wedding from out of state and entrusted Amy to take care of everything from contacting vendors to giving me a vision for the day of. She not only met my expectations but exceeded them. I had a beautiful wedding and my family and friends raved about how fun and beautiful the day was. I owe that all to Amy. As a planner, she's incredible, but as a person she is even better! She was excellent to communicate with and would often respond to late calls, emails, and texts due to my busy work schedule. She was encouraging and gave great advice and guidance on how to navigate the weeks leading up to my big day. I consider her a huge part of my day and a forever friend! Thanks Amy!! - Meredith + Brad

Q: Where did the name Amelia Lawrence come from?  

A:  My mother wanted to name me Amelia and call me Amy for short, but my father didn't see the point so Amy went on the birth certificate. My husband's first name is Lawrence, but he goes by him middle name. So...Amelia Lawrence is rather a play on names, Amelia - a name that was never established but referred to and Lawrence - a name that exists but not fully used. I write in cursive and my husband in print - thus...the logo.

A: Yes! We have a $1Million policy and encourage you to work with other vendors who also carry insurance.
