I'm a graduate of Old Dominion University, a Hampton Roads native, a wife, and a mom to two young children. Creativity and a zest for planning run deep in my bones. As a little girl, I would create dinner parties for my stuffed animals - place cards and all.
My journey in the wedding industry began in 2019 as an assistant coordinator for Haddy Ever After Events. I quickly realized that weddings are my passion and decided to start my own business in 2020. From there, Amber Justine Events was born and nurtured into reality. It's my goal to help you forget the details and soak in every minute on your wedding day. There is no greater joy for me than serving couples from the initial consultation to their reception exit and beyond! I'm looking forward to making your dreams a reality.

Alli is one of our beloved original members of the Amber Justine Events team, assisting at almost every 2021 wedding. She is from Northern Virginia and currently lives in Norfolk after attending Old Dominion University for both her undergraduate and graduate degrees. She loves running, hiking, and everything outdoors. When she's not planning weddings, you can find her having brunch with friends, taking her dogs for a walk, or hitting up a local brewery for a date night with her husband. Her favorite wedding day moment is a reception sneak peek!
Becca has an eye for design and a creative side that she brings into every wedding and her custom signage business, Brush and Bliss. Originally from Virginia Beach, she moved up to Richmond to attend Virginia Commonwealth University before heading back to the beach. She's a mom as well as a lover of all things reading or DIY home projects. On a non-wedding Saturday, you can find her hitting the trails with her dogs, grabbing brunch with friends, or reading a book. Her favorite wedding day moment is the first dance!
Our Williamsburg-based lead planner, Caroline, joined the Amber Justine Events team after three years as a lead planner for Night and Daye Events. As an alumna of The College of William and Mary, this Virginia Beach native settled in Williamsburg and learned that area as a true local. She loves cooking, hiking, and a solid TV sitcom. Her goal is to take as much off her couples' plates as possible so that they can enjoy the wedding day. Her favorite moments of weddings are the ceremony because it's the main point of the entire day!
Katelyn grew up in Richmond and attended Christopher Newport University. Her perfect weekend includes going to the beach, window shopping, and spending time with her loved ones. Lately she's been on a cycling kick! On wedding days, she loves seeing the joy on newlyweds' faces while celebrating their love and hard work.
This Hampton Roads native doubles as a wedding photographer on the weekends - find her at Ashley Marie Photography! She enjoys weekends with her fiancé and puppy, Chance. Her favorite parts of wedding days are the speeches and the parent dances (where she's often holding back happy tears at all the love).
Originally from New Jersey, Alex currently resides in Hampton with her husband, son, and two dogs - Mowgli and Maverick. When she's not in school at Old Dominion University, she loves making clay earrings, gardening, reading, and cooking. Her favorite moment during a wedding is when the couple walks down the aisle!
Do you love love? Are you intrigued by what happens behind the scenes at weddings? Have a passion for organization and all the nitty gritty details? Interested in having your own wedding planning business one day and want to learn the ropes? We'd love to have you as part of our team!
