Meet The Experts in Wedding Planning and Coordination
Donna Aleman, Founder of Ame Soeur Events
When my daughter got married, I wanted to give her the once-in-a-lifetime wedding. I helped her plan the entire event and then I coordinated it on the day of the wedding. But after the fact, I realized I missed everything. While I may have been in the location of the first dance, cake cutting, bouquet toss, and on and on... I wasn't really present. I was thinking about what needed to be done next.
At that wedding, the owner of the venue took notice of my skills (which I hadn’t realized I had!) and reached out to see if I would consider becoming a professional coordinator for their venue. I realized I was being given the opportunity to help other moms not miss out on being truly present for their daughter’s wedding day, and it was an opportunity I couldn’t pass up.
Now, as the founder of Ame Soeur Events, the leading wedding management and planning service in Cedar Park, TX, I’m helping couples create their once-in-a-lifetime, dream wedding. I want you to feel taken care of every step of the way, so that you can solely focus on enjoying your big day, together.
Sierra Smith, Wedding & Administrative Assistant
Sierra, our "Girl Friday" of Ame Soeur Events, met Donna when she got married herself. Donna coordinated Sierra’s wedding day, but, truthfully, it was easy coordination. Sierra had everything planned to a T. It was kismet. After working several weddings together - Sierra agreed to become Donna’s assistant.
In addition to being a highly-skilled assistant, Sierra is a big believer in close family relationships and an excellent teacher of the Cupid Shuffle. She’s always one step ahead in the exact moment she needs to be.

What We’re Known As
Our passion is for growing relationships. Whether it’s your mom, dad, or best friend, we love spending time with the people that mean so much to you and are included in the collaborative process. While other planners zero in on the couple, we recognize the importance of interacting with moms and parents, too. Often they’re simply misunderstood. They just want information or to have their opinions heard. By circumventing any confusion or hurt feelings, we get to watch you and your families grow together through this process. And we think that’s pretty great.
Keep your voice and keep mom in the loop at the same time.
“The great thing about having Donna help out for my wedding is that my mom got to relax and not worry about making sure everything went off smoothly.”
This is a blessing because having my mom feel relaxed helped me to be relaxed as well, and I honestly didn't worry about a single thing the entire night. There wasn't a single issue all night and I know this is because of Donna.”
