    Cherished Designs and Event Planning did my baby shower. The personal touches were amazing! Everything from the favors to the cake features my Winnie the Pooh theme; my guests were super impressed! Would choose Cherished Designs again in a heartbeat.

    Amy is such a pleasure to work with. She is very detail oriented and always goes the extra mile for her clients. From locating a personal barber for your big day, to commissioning an artist for your reception, or personalizing a handmade cake stand, Amy has handled it all in her signature graceful, calm way! As a vendor we have found that Amy is very quick to respond to any questions or concerns that we may have. We highly recommend Amy!

    All that stress during the wedding planning process?! It *instantly* improved after I started working with Amy at Cherished Designs & Event Planning. Amy went ABOVE & BEYOND to help us during the wedding planning process. She was worth every penny spent & MORE! I cannot recommend her enough. She was there every step of the way to listen to my ideas, bring them to life, offer advice and suggestions from someone that knows the business to make my vision come true. I had little to NO stress on the day of my wedding thanks to Amy! Amy took care of everything so me and my loved ones could truly enjoy, relax, and savor the day together. Anyone that met Amy the day of our wedding raved about how on top of things she was throughout the entire day/night and how kind she was in doing so. She is genuinely passionate about what she does and has excellent attention to detail. I can’t imagine my wedding day without Amy’s help! Best decision we made!
