Amber Justine Events: The Fantastic Virginia Beach Wedding Planner You Absolutely Need To Book

Let’s Get To Know Amber Justine Events: The Virginia Beach Wedding Planner You Absolutely Need To Book!

Hello, it’s me, again! And I’m here to introduce you to Amber Justine Events, an incredibly talented wedding planning team based in the Virginia Beach area.

Getting to work with Amber and her talented team is always such a pleasure! I truly love getting to see their wedding day magic and watch as they create such wonderful representations of their couples’ wedding day visions!

I recently worked with Amber Justine Events on a fun project at the Perry Belmont House in Washington D.C., and couldn’t help but connect with her! Amber has such a fun personality and calming demeanor, which is PERFECT for wedding days!

She has been in the wedding industry since 2019 and started her own Virginia Beach wedding planner team in 2020. Since then, they’ve rapidly expanded to the force they are today!

I always love to provide my couple with recommendations for the best of the best when it comes to their wedding day, so I absolutely knew I needed to chat with Amber Justine Events for you all! Today we’re going to get the inside scoop straight from Amber herself!

Let’s talk about you and your team at Amber Justine Events! What are a few personal things you’d like to share with potential clients?

I’m what I like to call a “Type A Creative”: a lover of logistics with a flair for design and a dash of PR training. When I’m not wedding planning, I’m hanging out with my husband, two kids, and our dog around Virginia Beach.

Like most of our couples, my main “hobby” is going out and living life at restaurants, events, and other community activities. I like hot coffee during all seasons, anything that includes cheese, and a whiskey on the rocks. I’ve traveled around the United States extensively and keep going back to the Florida Keys any chance that I get!

What do you love most about your job as a Virginia Beach wedding planner?

The wedding day itself! Wedding planning is an intricate puzzle, so it’s a joy to watch it all come together on the day and see the couple enjoy all that hard work. Plus, I’m such an extraverted person that it’s a treat to constantly get to meet and work alongside new couples and vendors.

What is your favorite part of the wedding day?

If time allows (first look required!), we love a reception sneak peek for the couple. Otherwise, that moment right before the walk down the aisle is the most sentimental and emotionally beautiful.

What’s one “must have” piece of advice you’d give to couples starting the wedding planning process?

Wedding content online is overwhelming, so limit yourself and get off the endless loop of (usually incorrect) TikTok or Instagram ideas and advice. You’ll end up with too many DIY tasks and an overstuffed timeline that will create more stress than happy moments.

It’s best to pick three design elements and three day-of moments you can’t live without and then work with your wedding planner to fill out the rest.

What is a dream wedding venue or city you’d love to work in?

As a lover of literature and the Florida Keys, the Hemingway Home remains at the top of my list! Within Virginia, I’d also love to do a wedding at Dover Hall or Clifton Inn.


Now that you know who you’re hiring to plan your your Virginia beach wedding day, it’s now time to think about your other wedding vendors. I know how hard this step is, and I want to make it as easy on you as possible!

I’m a seasoned Virginia wedding photographer and have years of experience making the most out of couples’ wedding photos. I know how to capture the best of the best when it comes to editorial, posed, and candid photos. Ready to talk wedding day details? I am so glad you asked. Let’s get you on the books today!


Other things I love about Amber Justine Events? Every couple can choose exactly what they need for their wedding day! This Virginia Beach wedding planner has plenty of experience and has created multiple options to work with for your wedding day. Amber Justine Events offers wedding management, partial or full service wedding planning.

Amber Justine Events also makes sure you’re getting the VIP treatment no matter which route you choose! I absolutely love getting to see my couples’ visions come to life with the incredible mood boards her wedding planning team puts together. They’ll create a collage with all of the decor, table accents, and color schemes for you to have handy when envisioning your Virginia Beach wedding day!

hi, i'm danielle—

In the past 10+ years as a Wedding & Portrait Photographer, I’ve found that, aside from arming myself with my cameras to catch swoon-worthy moments of my couples on their day, I’m also bringing a few other unexpected things. 

Like my tough love mom-voice that will keep your bridal party in check, my air of calm if you’re feeling overwhelmed, and the corniest jokes so no one has the jitters in front of the camera!

Because so much more goes into getting those gorgeous wedding photos than just hitting “click!”

and I'm not just bringing my camera to your big day.
