Wedding Planner/ Event Coordinator
AMG is Fairfield County’s only “one stop shop” for catering and events. Offering a unique service that joins full-service catering with event planning under the same roof. Their philosophy is simple- their job is to facilitate your vision through their expertise.
Olivia Savarese specializes in planning and designing personalized events from backyards to ballrooms. Olivia can be as involved as you want in the planning of your event. AMG offers “Full”, “Partial” and “Day of” planning packages.
- “Full” planning package: includes meeting with all vendors, visiting venues for the event location and preparing the ceremony and reception sites. We handle every detail and issue that may arise before,during and after the event.
- “Partial” planning package: The venue has already been set and vendors have been contractually booked. Anytime before the wedding AMG becomes acquainted with the vendors. We step in and become the liaison with vendors and complete all remaining planning tasks.
- “The day of” planning package: This package is great when everything has been planned and is ready to go but you can’t be in two places at once. We handle all day itineraries (photographer, band, DJ, flowers), final payments to vendors and any problem that may arise. Day of Wedding Duties & Checklist:
