Your certified wedding coordinator Inspire Your® | © Rachael Schirano Photography


Are you overwhelmed thinking about how your wedding day will go?

Do you lack confidence in finding a trained & experience coordinator for a stress-free day?

Don’t know how to manage all your wedding creative professional vendors on your big day?


Let those involved in your special day, enjoy the day with you! Our certified event planner, Amanda Jean, will be skillful and insightful in coordination for a seamless day with your invited family & friends.

Slide Amanda was so helpful and truly a calming, organized presence during the two years (and a pandemic shuffle)
it took to make our wedding a reality. I wasn’t sure I needed a wedding planner since I knew what vendors I wanted pretty much from the get go.
Amanda really took our wedding from good to amazing! Having her coordinate for us (we weren’t local) and having an idea for every hiccup was
so great. Leading up to the wedding, she was there every step of the way to coordinate arrival times for vendors, contracts, the rehearsal,
and all the day-of stuff that would never have occurred to me. Hiring Amanda and Inspire Your was the best decision we made to
help keep us on track and organized!

Slide Amanda you absolutely killed it yesterday! Thank you so so much for all your hard work and dedication to our day.
It truly could not have gone any better and the whole day was everything I dreamed of. You were a rockstar making sure everything
was where it needed to be, when it needed to be there. I can't thank you enough!

Slide Amanda joined our vendor team late after our original planner had an unexpected move, but she never missed a beat.
Our wedding went off without a single hitch because of Amanda. This is a woman with a PLAN and a SYSTEM!
She was three steps ahead of me the whole day and I never had a thing to worry about, as a planner, nothing meant more to me.
When I met Amanda, I told her the only questions I wanted to be asked on my wedding day were ‘where is your husband’
and ‘would you like another drink’ and she made that happen. You are making a mistake if you hire anyone but Amanda!
I really like things my way, and she made all of our wedding dreams come true.

Slide To put it simply, I couldn’t have had the wedding or my dream without Amanda. She was everything I needed and more.
I have always been an organized control freak, but she made everything about my wedding effortless.
Being a bride from out of town and having a venue that had never hosted a wedding before there was a lot of stress,
but no matter what the question or problem was, she was there to solve it and give me even better ideas!
I am truly grateful for her and her team for making my wedding the best day of our lives!

Slide We had Amanda help with our wedding in Urbana, IL. We were originally questioning whether we would even need a wedding planner,
but after meeting Amanda, we knew she would be a great addition to our vendors. Looking back, she was the BEST addition
we could've added to our vendor list. She was very attentive, detailed, and offered great suggestions along the way to make our wedding
more enjoyable for our guests and affordable for us. During the wedding day, she went above and beyond her job description,
helping where necessary. She made the day a very stress-free and enjoyable experience for us and our families.

Slide Amanda was “worth her weight in gold”. She was SO fun to work with, always took everything with a smile, and expertly handled
our changing decisions. She executed our wedding day perfectly, and it was such a weight off our shoulders to have her coordinating on
our wedding day. Nothing we asked for was too big or too much for Amanda to take on. Our wedding was spectacular, mostly because of
the hard work and attention to detail that Amanda provided. She is organized, competent, fun, kind,
genuinely enjoyable to work with, and the best decision we made for our wedding!
07.03.21 Alli & Jon
Slide Amanda is very knowledgeable in wedding planning. She really helped us out in making sure we had the perfect wedding,
making sure everything went smooth. I highly recommend Amanda.

Slide We adore Amanda! From the first time we talked, she has always been extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and professional.
When we had to reschedule (twice!) due to covid, she was always calm and encouraging. She seamlessly coordinated our vendors,
and she anticipated little issues that we never would have thought of, solving them before they could even be a problem.
We ended up hiring her for extra hours on the wedding day and I can't imagine how the day would have gone without her!
Myself, my new husband, and our families all felt at ease with her at the helm for the day.
I can't recommend Amanda highly enough!
08.21.21 Kristi & Andrew
Slide My daughter and her husband made the decision to plan a micro wedding in an 8-week time frame. I wasn't sure it was possible,
I knew I needed help. Amanda was a life saver, she made it happen. Amanda worked with vendors to help us create the
PERFECT micro wedding. There wasn't an overlooked detail. Always calm and flexible, she never made us feel rushed.
The event was beyond our expectations. I give her credit for making my daughter's wedding truly a day to remember.

Slide To save the budget, we decided to not have a wedding day coordinator, which was the worst decision ever! I ended up contacting
all the vendors to confirm with them the details of the wedding day and assigning works to my friends to help with my wedding until
the night before my wedding. I would get the Day-of coordination service from Amanda to make my life much easier.
10.17.20 Liuqing & Yangsong
Slide I'm so glad I used Amanda for my framework guide and day of coordination for my wedding.
She was able to review all of my contracts to make sure that I didn't miss anything and come up with a timeline that worked best for us.
Having her at my wedding the day of to help set everything up, really eased my mind because I knew she was going to make my vision
come to life. She is professional, responsive, extremely knowledgeable and you can tell she truly cares about her clients
and making sure their day goes perfectly.

Slide Amanda was absolutely essential for not only helping us plan our wedding but also for the
day of the wedding. She made everything go so smoothly and seamlessly. I honestly can’t even imagine attempting
to plan a wedding without her. She executed our Pinterest board so perfectly - it was a dream come true.
Amanda is extremely knowledgable in regards to every single aspect of wedding planning. We relied on her for a lot which made the
process so much more enjoyable for us. We definitely recommend Amanda’s wedding and party planning services. 10/10 stars!!!
Thank you so much, Amanda.
05.22.21 Emma & Austin
Slide 5 stars is not enough. Our wedding was 5/29 and Amanda went above and beyond, I will never be able to thank her enough.
When I first got engaged, I did not want a wedding planner. I was so wrong. She is the best money I spent, by far.
Our meetings were always fun, and seeing it all come together on our big day was a dream come true. I didn't feel stressed even once
on Saturday. Amanda asked me many times "Do you need anything? Are you good?" I will recommend her to everyone I know who
has a wedding to plan. Thank you so much, Amanda! 🙂

Slide I worked with Amanda, the founder of Inspire Your for a wedding on and she was absolutely incredible every step of the way.
I work as a Wedding DJ in the Central Illinois area and I see a whole lot of wedding receptions and ceremonies that are very... the same.
With Amanda I could really see the creativity, ingenuity, and heart she put into every little detail.
