When I get involved in helping a family or individual plan an event, I get just as excited as the guest of honor and must remind myself NOT to go out and buy a new outfit! I can’t be on everyone’s guest list but I can be there in spirit.
I got started in the event planning business after years of planning parties and events for myself, family and for friends. The details and the planning involved in both my personal and professional endeavors were such a match for my personality that it became clear that this was what I wanted to do every day!!! Popular Parties by Pam was created!!!

As a professional and dedicated event planner I will work with you to create your unique and memorable occasion.
Planning a wedding is very much like assembling a pit crew or putting on a production and Pam was an incredible addition to my wedding team. I was concerned about the size of my wedding compared to her abilities and value of services but Pam provided peace of mind in so many ways. Pam provides a wide range of skills and services (including a kind ear to bridal worries). She provided guidance without being pushy and reassured us to pay attention to the details we wanted. She helped plan and made sure we adhered to a budget. She was endlessly patient, task oriented, and responded quickly. She helped us refocus on timelines and was there to remind us of all of the little details (like including ourselves in the headcount); at all times of day. She was and is so professional and warm. I cannot say enough good things about her. I am so grateful that she was able to share our day with us. I look forward to using her services for future events. - Brandon P.
"I have to say that before this year, I never attended any reunion party or function. If any reunion parties in the past were as much fun as this party was, well I guess I was really missing out! This multi-year Amherst reunion get together was an absolute blast and very well done. I think the Pub will always be an iconic point for us all both now and in the future. I hope we do it all over again next year!" - John R-S

I want to thank Pam for helping us on our special day. I started this out thinking it was going to be a simple thing organizing our wedding. Time progressed and I realized this was going to be harder than I thought. Here entered Pam. After our first meeting she showed her value with helping us find the perfect venue for our reception and coordinate our diverse vendors. Ours was a two day event with the wedding on the Saturday and the reception on the Sunday. Complicated and specific. That was our wedding. Perfect was what Pam helps us make it. - Charles G.
"Pam, this weekend exceeded all expectations. Your enthusiasm is contagious and truly contributed to an enjoyable time for all. GREAT WORK!!! This past weekend was awesome!" - Jim M.
