Mike & Maggie
Hired by Alyson Taylor, Ampa was tapped for equipment and creative solutions: Working with Allyson Taylor, I was asked to design and build of a custom Church Stage Set that looked like the bride’s hometown church. From a photo, I took the essence of the church and created a lovely backdrop for the wedding service. One of my team was skilled with stain glass. As an additional touch, we built a stained glass window inspired by the hometown church and gave this to the bride as a special keepsake.
Unique Event Equipment Rentals: Both the bride and groom are biking enthusiasts. Ampa’s Giant Trike was a hit. The bride and groom peddle their way into the receipt as they were announced for the first time as husband and wife.
All you need is love...and a wedding planner.

Frequently Asked Questions
I often get the question, “what if…?” in one form or another. I am practical. Life is not perfect, but “the show must go on…”. For Example: we arrived at the hotel at 6am on the dot for our load in, but the freight elevator was broken! Uuugh! With advance planning, we always have additional time in our schedule for surprises. Our muscles were aching the next morning. We used the stairs. The family was never aware of any hitch.
Yes. Throughout the rivers of Virginia and Maryland, family farms and on historic estates. Everything must be planned for, including electrical services and how best to support catering and more.
I will be glad to travel to you. In 30 years, I have produced events as far north as Boston, several programs on the west coast, Chicago, New Orleans, Texas, and South Carolina. I would love to produce your wedding in Miami Beach or on a warm tropical island anytime from January to March to escape the winter cold 🙂 Destination services are no different than local services – just a bit more planning. I do suggest getting started much earlier when planning a destination wedding. Contract your planner a couple years ahead and apply for your passports.
I have been in business for 25 years, this has never occurred. While planning, we keep frequent communications with vendors and have rigorous follow-up calls and discussions regarding installation. With equipment arriving early and in some cases the day before the event, planning is the precautionary steps we take to make sure your an event goes off without a hitch.
