I thought about all of the engaged couples I had the chance to meet as a ballroom dance instructor. I would help them get comfortable with their first dance—and I got to hear all about their wedding-planning worries and woes during our sessions. I started to feel a strong calling to help couples like these—so I traded in my dancing shoes for non-slips and secured gigs as a bartender, a server, a banquet captain and, eventually, a wedding day assistant.

After immersing myself in different areas of the industry and picking up every last thing I could about how to best support couples during the planning process—I launched Events with Ambiance in 2013. Today, there’s nothing I love more than helping busy urban professionals feel seen, heard, and celebrated as they take the first step in their marriage journey

As a born servant and a natural host who knows her way around a great party, I advocate fiercely for my clients and their needs. (Ask me about the time I hopped behind the bar at a client’s wedding when the bartenders weren’t cutting it and served drinks for an hour-and-a-half.


My approach in a nutshell? I’m all about empowering you to plan your wedding your way—but I’ll never let you drop the ball or make bad decisions along the way. I serve it to you the way you deserve: straight, with no chaser (the same way I enjoy my drinks).

I spent most of my life as a professional dancer. Honestly, I thought it was all I would ever do. But—surprise!—my body had other plans for me and, as it was nudging me toward retirement, I knew I needed to find another passion.!

When I think about what drew me to this industry, I think about my mother. She was born to parents who hosted incredible parties, and she and my dad carried on that same tradition all my life. I can still taste the food, hear the music, and feel the fellowship that constantly filled their home.

Amber at Events With Ambiance is the best of the best.
Absolutely phenomenal experience working with Amber and her team at last week's wedding.
With her experience and unmatched organizational skills, she anticipated every possible need and made sure the whole weekend went off without a hitch.
I cannot recommend her services highly enough. Amber managed all of the wedding logistics, details and *~strong personalities~* with grace, ease and efficiency.

That woman is worth her weight in gold!
