Four seasons miami
We met with a few planners before choosing Andi. From the second we met her, we knew she was the one! We had high expectations! She arrived at our meeting (early! which never happens in Miami) with a personalized proposal placed at each person's table setting. From that point on, she was extremely available for every minor to major wedding detail. On the rare occasion she couldn't take your call, you immediately received a text telling you the time she would respond. She respected our budget and kept us under! Even at the last minute when I wanted to add details (and cost), she counseled me to stick with what we chose from the beginning. I could go on and on about Andi, but I'll conclude with this - Andi is more than a wedding planner... she is a professional, a part-time therapist and confidant! Weddings can be tricky, and we certainly had a lot of personalities involved! She is simply a "yes" woman whose expertise is invaluable. Our wedding went off without a hitch, and it was the most perfect and beautiful weekend of our lives so far! It has been a month and our guests continue to rave about every detail!

ANDI is the absolute BEST in the business and I could never thank her enough for making our wedding day so perfect. She is worth every penny and more. I planned an elaborate Miami Beach wedding (from New York) with a different planner until TWO MONTHS before the wedding. Only 20% of planning had been done up to that point and I was stressed beyond belief. Since I work full time and travel constantly, I relied on our planner to handle wedding vendor decisions and the budget, but she was not delivering in any way. It had all somehow fallen onto me to manage and keep track of — and I wasn’t able to manage it. Nor was I willing to, when paying a professional a lot of money for their expertise. Fast forward to the day I called Andi, panicking and realizing how far behind I was, knowing that it was time to cut the cord and find a new planner. Andi answered my call and proved in one short phone call that she was exactly what I needed. It’s not the first time a panic-stricken bride called her needing her right before their wedding—quite telling. She took over our wedding planning that day. She took over my schedule and set new vendor appointments with less than 2 hours’ notice before end of that business day. This lady is CONNECTED, let me tell you. The vendors adore her and respect her beyond measure. From the moment Andi took on our disorganized and already over-budget wedding, we felt this instant sense of relief. She is the most thorough, organized person I have ever had the pleasure of working with. As a super type A personality, who could drive any person mad with my never-ending list of questions, I couldn’t believe that not one of the ridiculous requests I came up with even so much as fazed Andi. Did I mention she is a single mom of two? A SUPERSTAR MOM. When you ask for something, she replies in seconds. SECONDS! I am from New York (or at least pretend to be) and this is everything. She’ll follow up with you five times in same week to keep you on track. She’ll also bring you back to earth when your dreams just cannot be achieved within budget—and that sort of sense of reason is incredibly important when planning a lavish wedding. Because you will have to cut money somewhere at some point, and there must be someone willing to tell you the truth. With that said, she helped me design my dream wedding and negotiated the hell out of all vendors to make sure we got what we needed for a price we could afford. She will also force you to make a decision when it’s time to finally decide on one project and move on to tackle the next. I needed this. Andi finalized every single minute detail of planning for me: menus, invite design, guest list, dance floor, entertainment, photographer, décor, linens, even furniture selection for lounges and custom-designed tables. She does it all and makes it look incredibly easy. Her wedding day execution was something that left us in complete awe! I could never find the right words to recommend a person as highly qualified as Andi—she is quite simply THE BEST. I would plan my wedding with her again 100 times!!! Her team is also incredible and I can’t begin to express my gratitude for how beautiful our day was because of their incredible operation. Do yourself one big favor: hire Andi and you will have made the BEST decision of the entire wedding planning process. Mark my words. And do it before you pick your venue—the earlier, the better. Even more time to spend with her! I LOVE ANDI!

We love Andi and are so thankful we found her to plan our wedding in NYC. She handled the coordination, planning and our constantly-changing requests with so much patience, professionalism and skill. She was so easy and fun to work with throughout our planning process, and was completely in control during the wedding weekend. Adam and I didn't have to worry about anything as Andi and her partner were so on top of it. Many guests and our other vendors commented on how amazing they were by keeping everything running smoothly. I cannot say enough good things about Andi, and would recommend her to any NYC bride. I am so thankful she was a part of our wedding.

We lost count of how many guests told us that they have been to so many weddings and never experienced one that was so well run, so professionally done, so perfect, until ours. ANJE, and Andi in particular, provided the ultimate level of service, was on top of every issue no matter how small, and provided recommendations that we never ever considered. When the big day came, their personal attention to detail and every party involved (bride, groom, wedding party, etc.) was amazing and made our special day better than we could have ever imagined. We could not imagine using anyone else and feel so blessed that ANJE was there for us. Simply the best!

ANJE did a wonderful job coordinating our wedding! Having someone plan out an itinerary down to every 5-10 minutes was key since the day can easily slip away so quickly. There were so many things that they brought up throughout the planning process that my family and I never would have though of. We're so glad that we had them there to keep everything running smoothly!

FOUR SEASONS MIAMI
Andi and Jen were referred to us by another wedding planner I spoke to when we began planning. That endorsement alone would have been enough, but when I spoke with Andi, I was certain they were the planners for us. She really listened to what we wanted and made suggestions and gave ideas in that first conversation that made me feel anything could be done. From there, they helped us with the budget, picking a venue, referring us to vendors and putting together the most detailed minute-by-minute timeline that left no second unaccounted for. (And I should add that each vendor we used was amazing - extremely professional, delivered more than expected, and were just good people to work with.)What stood out most to us is that Andi and Jen are detailed oriented, organized, sweet, energetic, and really fun to work with. They made a point of answering emails almost immediately and never left a question unanswered. They were so on top of every detail that there were times where I felt like I had nothing to do (in a good way). I was very involved and hands-on in picking out details, ordering items, designing and decorating, but they helped me when I was torn with ideas or unsure of the logistics of something. The most important part of the whole planning process and what made everything worth it, is that on that day we were able to relax and truly enjoy our wedding - and that is entirely thanks to Andi and Jen!
