Amanda Voelkel

After spending the majority of her younger years in England, Amanda returned to the United States to further her education. With a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management, it was time to pursue her growing passion of event management. Now with 10 years of experience in designing and managing events a clear style has emerged. Amanda is deeply rooted in classic tastes with the ability to innovatively incorporate modern trends, creating memories that are appreciated for a life time.

Throughout Amanda’s career, she has planned and executed hundreds of weddings, corporate and social events. Amanda’s time traveling throughout the United States, Europe, South America and the Caribbean has heavily influenced her ability to create a unique event each time, every time.
