so happy you're here

amarilis cano-schutte, founder & Ceo

Hi there, it's so wonderful to meet you! I'm Amarilis Cano-Schutte, Founder, CEO, and Head Planner here at ACS.

As a veteran's wife, proud mother of two wonderful kids and our rescue mixed Terrier, Scrappy, I've spent much of my life organizing, coordinating, and creating for the sake of creating a happy, functional life and household. And now, those skills, along with my endless passion for styling beautifully-designed events, have come together in the most aligned way: through event planning.

Helping you realize your own dreams through luxurious and global experiences, whether that's a wedding, special occasion, celebration, or retreat is my love and top priority. My background through wedding and event planning certification and years of hands-on industry experience coupled with my natural love for design and planning ensures that you'll have every detail covered from start to finish for your event — including things you may not have even thought of.

Not to mention, being a military wife has created endless opportunities for traveling internationally, visiting venues and meeting vendors in some of the world's finest destinations.

I'm thrilled you're here and overjoyed to share my passion for luxury, travel, spirituality, and events in order to help you create memorable, intentional experiences worldwide.


I’ll always choose exercising outdoors over going to the gym.
