Meet the Team


Amanda Cowan

Event Coordinator / Head Blogger

Hello! My name is Amanda and I am the Director of Special Events for Alpha Pitt Smokers in Williamsburg, VA.

I have had the privilege of coordinating over 150 weddings in the Metro DC and Virginia Tidewater areas over the past 7 years.  My portfolio includes all kinds of events ranging from elaborate black tie weddings to intimate backyard celebrations – and everything in between!

Orchestrating all these events has shaped my approach as a coordinator. But recently something changed the way I would see weddings forever – I got engaged. Facing wedding planning from the Bride’s seat was more challenging than I expected. It’s easy to get overwhelmed when trying to balance wedding planning along with your work, personal, and social life.

A Bride’s Life shares my experience as both a wedding professional and a bride to help you plan your perfect wedding day. It’s full of tips to keep you organized, styles to inspire and advice to help keep your wedding planning stress free and fun!
