My husband & I met Amelie when we were looking for a wedding planner to help create our destination wedding in France. We are from the US & planned the majority of the wedding living on the west coast. After we finished our first call to learn more about her & her about us, we wanted to work with Amelie. She not only has a great personality, is creative & very collaborative, but also very realistic & honest.
She organized virtual touchpoints for us regularly to make sure we were communicating things that were important to us & her showing us options & giving us updates! She also kept us on budget & made sure we knew when payments were due. Amelie answered all of our questions, nothing was ever too small to address. We very much appreciated that.
In the summer of 2019, we visited France to tour different venues, try caterers, & even selected our wines which was expertly planned by Amelie. While trusting someone to help create an event that you are bringing people who love to have an experience abroad can seem intimidating, we felt comfortable with how she handled every detail & prepared us personally!
Now, we originally had planned out wedding for July 2020. Unfortunately, the state of the world with COVID had us push back to 2021. Amelie was again, very honest & collaborative. We were on standby but agreed we needed to push the wedding to the following summer. Amelie navigated the pandemic changes seamless. She worked with all vendors to accommodate our new date. We in the time did have to pick a new venue, due to the new date already being booked, which she prospected and found us an amazing option, Domaine de Valbonne!
When we arrived at our venue the day before our wedding & were welcomed by Amelie! It was so nice to see her again after 2 years! You could see how excited she was for us and had all of our details organized and ready. We did not have a worry in the world as our guests arrived. She did not miss a beat. From the welcome BBQ, to day of the wedding, to farewells at the morning brunch, Amelie was there to make sure it was what we had discussed and that it ran smoothly. Our guests have said they had never felt so relaxed at a wedding before!
I could probably write a million more things that Amelie did, but to sum it up, she made our 3 day event absolutely wonderful. We could never thank her enough!

We reached out to Amélie several months after we had already started planning our wedding, and it had to have been one of the best decisions we made during the whole process. I definitely underestimated how much work would go into organizing the day of our dreams, and it was clear pretty quickly that we could use a professional’s help. I am so incredibly happy that we found Amélie as she made the whole wedding planning process a million times less stressful and helped us pull off the perfect day.
Amélie is well organized, professional, responsive, and has terrific contacts and great ideas. In the months leading up to our wedding weekend, she kept on top of when we should be booking each vendor, payment timelines, next steps, etc. She spent plenty of time going through the plans (and backup plans) for the day to make sure we were all on the same page, and kept track of all the important details as the weekend got closer.
The organization during the weekend itself couldn’t have been better. Even when a few uncontrollable stumbling blocks arose (broken down delivery trucks, rain the morning before the wedding), Amélie kept us calm and sorted everything out perfectly. We had several different vendors, and Amelie and her team did a great job coordinating everyone — they all seemed to know exactly what needed to be done, where and when, without either of us needing to worry about it. We even had some guests comment to us how impressed they were with the organization of the weekend, and that is all thanks to Amélie and her incredible team.
To anyone looking for a wedding planner in the South of France, we definitely recommend Amélie without hesitation!

A huge thank you to Amelie who helped us during a year for our wedding! A faultless, for a wedding between land and sea in Camargue. Thank you Amelie for your professionalism, your availability (it is noted that we live in Africa and the wedding was largely organized remotely), your patience and your "joie de vivre"! We were very happy to live on this great stage of our life with you, and we wish you all the success that you deserve for the future!

Amelie organized our wedding and what a joy to have her with us. We were delighted by her services. Furthermore, during the months before, she was very present for us and she found great vendors. I recommend Amelie on trust. Thank you for everything you have done for us.

I met Amelie when she organised my daughter’s wedding in the South of France. She did such a fantastic job that I asked her to organise my birthday party in Paris with a 1920’s theme. Once again she did a wonderful job. She ironed out all the kinks, had great ideas, was always helpful and friendly. I had a wonderful celebration over 3 days. I wholeheartedly recommend her.

Amelie was an absolute JOY to work with. We planned our wedding in a very rural part of France - from the US! Amelie coordinated skype meetings with vendors of every kind so we could personally communicate and choose each one. She was able to locate vendors close to the area that had everything we dreamed of, and more!
We were so thankful that Amelie was present at ALL the wedding events - from the hair/makeup trial, rehearsal, wedding day (which lasted until 6am), and even the day after the wedding!
Amelie is extremely organized, friendly, passionate, and TALENTED! We are so happy we were found her and were able to work with her to plan our big day.

Our wedding was something out of a dream! It was the PERFECT wedding and it's all because of Amelie. She helped to keep us organized with every detail. We knew planning a wedding in France from the USA (California) was no small task but Amelie was great, accommodating, professional and easy to work with. We communicated via phone/skype calls and emails. She made sure all the vendors had what they needed, answering questions, making timelines for us and always very responsive. She listened to what we wanted, worked within our budget and was an absolute joy to work with.
The day before the wedding, she was there for the rehearsal and led the whole thing and helped us with what to do and where to stand, and went over the timeline of the day with us and the wedding party, making sure everything would be perfect.
Finally, the day of the wedding, our experience was everything we could have hope and ask for. All we had to do was relax and have the time of our lives!
Thank you Amelie for creating amazing memories that we will always cherish!

We had an amazing experience with Amélie. We live in the US and our wedding took place in Provence in September in my family's country house. Despite the pandemic, everything was perfect and even beyond. Because of covid, we hesitated many times to cancel and didn't know back in the spring if we would be able to get married.
Amelie was never stressed, she handled things perfectly, had a plan A, B and C. She was ready to delay if needed and had everything under control. She has a great energy and positivity and she is an amazing professional. She kept agendas with what had been done, what remained to be done. All the stuff, I'm so bad at! When I first contacted her, I knew what I wanted in terms of decoration, food and spirit, I had a lot of ambitions but a tight budget and together we found solutions to everything. All of the wedding invitations, menus, name cards, seating plans, church song books, flower bouquets were made by my mother @mathildebonbon.illustration (go follow), she makes the most beautiful drawings ever. Amelie understood what we wanted and made it all happen, she found the greatest chef for the cocktail and dinner, same for lights, tipis, tent and furniture. It was poetic and fitted perfectly with Provence landscapes. The rythm of the night was perfect. Absolutely flawless. Without her we wouldn't have been able to make that day as we dreamt it. She made our day ideal. I recommend her 100%. I wish we could marry again, we would definitely hire Amelie.
She is a fairy. Thank you Amelie!
