“I was fortunate enough to attend a few weddings planned by Anette prior to planning my own. When it came time to choose I had no doubt I wanted to work with her. I had many non-conventional wedding ideas and wanted someone who would support my vision 100%. Anette offered the perfect balance; she knew when to let me run wild and when to offer her expertise. Her connections and experience made wedding planning a breeze. My family and I could not thank her enough for all her dedication and professionalism. She’s a beautiful person both in her work and outside her planning duties. Our guests still talk about the wedding of the decade — ours. It would not have been possible with Anette. She made our dream a reality, and we will be forever grateful.”  Jii + Chris
 
 

We were lucky enough to be introduced to Anette through our wonderful photographer. Choosing Anette turned out to be the BEST decision we could have made. We always thought we would plan our wedding alone, but we soon found that the options available were too numerous to sort through. Anette took the guesswork out of the equation and we began to actually ENJOY planning our special day. Every vendor she introduced us to was personable, professional, within our budget, and willing to work extra to make our vision a reality.

Our wedding day exceeded our expectations. Anette took care of everything! From ensuring that our guests knew where to go, to tying a bow tie, to fixing my hair before the reception, to making sure my expensive shoes didn’t get lost when I changed into flip flops, to wrapping all of our uneaten food and having it sent up to our room to enjoy after the wedding!

Anette, I sing your praises to everyone I meet who asks me about my wedding. Humbi and I are so happy we chose you to coordinate the most important day of our lives! We can’t wait to hit our 25 year anniversary. We will be calling upon you to work your magic again!

When we first started planning our wedding we never thought about how many little details come along with the big stuff… We wanted someone who will guide us through it and give us an insight of what is needed to have a beautiful wedding. Javier from DJ Connection recommended Anette from events by Bri, to Miguel and I … After meeting with Anette and going over what we needed for our special day.. We decided to go with the “Day of” package. We didn’t hesitate once on our choice for wedding planner, Anette was the perfect candidate. Although we had the “day of” package Anette still helped us the whole way through. Everytime I had a question or a problem I can call her and she helped me Everytime. It was a pleasure working with Events by Bri throughout the  whole wedding planning process… Everything at the reception ran smoothly and she was always there making sure things were running according to plan. The wedding came out beautiful and I will recommend Events by Bri to all my friends to help with their wedding planning. 

Thanks Anette , for helping to make our dream come true.  Lianny and Miguel

Anette:

Where do we begin?? When I first started this wedding planning process I told David “We need a wedding planner!” He tried to cut corners in other parts of our budget and I insisted that a wedding planner was a MUST. After seeing the amazing work you had done for so many of my sister’s friends and after speaking with you on the phone for the first time I just knew YOU WERE THE ONE we were going to entrust our oh-so-special day to. Boy are we glad we went with our instincts!! You were beyond wonderful. You are so extremely detailed, patient, professional, soft-spoken, organized, talented, etc. etc. etc.! I vividly remember throughout my wedding reception having you come up to me to remind me to eat, remind me to cut the cake, hem up my dress because my train was too long even after being bustled and be attentive even of the most minimal of details! What peace of mind knowing that all of my valuables from my wedding ceremony and reception were under your care and were all safely returned to me for my safe-keeping! You and your assistant were the perfect “touch” to my dream wedding. It could never have run as smoothly without you. Thank you from the bottom of both of our hearts. Needless to say you will always have a special place in our hearts and minds.

Lots of love,

Melissa and David Blanco

 


 

I have to admit that I was skeptical about hiring a day-of wedding planner for our March 17th, 2012 wedding. I am a perfectionist and a control freak so naturally I thought I could handle all of the details myself. After meeting with a couple of pushy and pricey planners the sales rep for my venue recommended Anette from A Unique Event by Bri, who happened to be located right next to my florist, the minute I walked in to her tastefully decorated office and saw her… I knew she was the one. She was sweet, listened to everything I had to say and asked all the right questions. Although I only retained Anette for the “day of coordination” she did so much more than that! Anette recommended other vendors (which ended up being excellent), created vendor timelines and even came to my house the day before the wedding to pick up the favors and candles I didn’t have time to drop off. Anette contacted all the vendors and ensured that everything was set up for the big day, on my actual wedding day she was at the venue early in the morning ensuring everything was set up exactly as we had planned. Every single detail was taken care of from begining to end. When we got to the venue after the ceremony and went up to the bridal prep room, she ensured that we had HOT hors d’oeuvres, water, our welcome drinks, my make up re-touch bag, everything! she even made sure we got to fill out a wishtree tag for eachother used for our wishtree “sign in book”, now we have that special detail forever. Throughout the night she ensured we had everything we needed, and even packed the cake in a container and labeled it, I would have never imagined how hands on a day of planner could be and that probably because no other planner will go out of their way to ensure that your wedding day is the happiest most perfect day of your life like Anette will.

Thank you again for everything!

  Dear Anette,

 It’s so nice to hear from you! I never formally thanked you for all the hard work you put into our wedding. You made us feel at ease every step of the way. Everything I envisioned my wedding day would be came true and would not have been possible without your attention to detail. We put our trust in you and you exceeded our expectations. Most of all, I’d like to thank you for working with my mother and keeping her sane throughout the planning process. This was my biggest concern and as you promised, she didn’t have to worry about a thing because you went above and beyond. We consider ourselves blessed to have had the privilege of working with you and to have gained a friend along the way. Thank you for making our wedding day a dream come true!

 Thank you Anette for planning our wedding. It was more beautiful than we had ever expected. I knew I could count on you to make decisions when I couldn’t. Your calm demeanor and kind heart makes planning a wedding so much fun and stress free. All the vendors you recommended were very professional and high quality. I really appreciate the fact that you did all the set up the day of the wedding. I didn’t have to do one thing and that was very calming knowing that you were making everything perfect, I knew you had everything under control. You were so much fun to work with and have been a great friend. THANK YOU! I have already recommended you to others and will continue to do so. 🙂

Best Regards,

Katie Bechtold

 

 

 

 


 

 

Anette, you were a great wedding planner and I cannot say enough wonderful things about you. You were efficient, organized, resourceful, helpful, kind, detail-oriented, and were not phased with the incessant questions I asked. You handled the details and helped keep everything on track. You helped us fulfill our vision of a personal wedding with handmade touches through your helpfulness and diligence. To say that you went above and beyond is an understatement, especially given the set-up of more than 130 paper trees and the assembly of more than 300 mini-pavloas! We just wanted to thank you so much for such an incredible night! We had a blast, and our guests were absolutely blown away by everything. You did a fantastic job which we could not have pulled off without you!

Sincerely,
Carmen and Victor

“Anette was truly a godsend. The best money we spent at our wedding. She is the consummate professional, detail-oriented, polite, hard-working, dedicated and creative – everything you’d ever want from a wedding planner. We are so thrilled she was part of our wedding. My husband and I knew we were in great hands from the moment we met her. During the wedding, she was a fly on the wall making sure everything went as planned. We couldn’t be happier with Anette’s services. If we had to do it all over again, we’d make sure Anette was our first call. Thank you for making our wedding dreams a reality.”

Since day one that Anette came into our lives wedding drama became a joyful ride. Anette took care of absolutely every itsy bitsy detail that was a cause of distress, anxiety and concern. Working full time and having limited time during the work week is difficult when planning a wedding but, with Anette’s compassion, work ethic and patience our wedding was the best day of our lives!! There are no words to describe how wonderful Anette is with her brides, she takes on multiple roles aside from her impeccable wedding planning expertise such as friend,mother stylist, and even psychologist!!We are truly blessed a million times over to have met Anette, for she will always hold a special place in our heart!! THANK YOU Anette!!!

“Anette was an amazing wedding planner! I felt reassured the day of the wedding that everything was being taken care of by her. She was calm, reassuring, kind and was attentive to my needs. She took care of all the little details and important things as well so that I didn’t have to worry about any of it. I was able to enjoy our wedding so peacefully and happily because I knew I could trust her to take of all the things that I didn’t want to think about the day of the wedding. She always had a smile on her face and was always happy to help. She is easy to talk to and listens to what you want.

She makes great recommendations and gives great advice as well. She has so much experience, and it is so helpful when planning a wedding. She is also reasonable and helps you find vendors that match your needs and budget. Most importantly, she is a sweet person with a great personality. It was a pleasure to meet with her and have her coordinate the day of the wedding.I highly recommend her as a wedding planner. I tell all my engaged friends about her because she is life saver when planning a wedding. ”

I am so grateful that we were able to meet and work together to execute my vision for my wedding day! Not to mention the therapy sessions on the telephone leading up to the big day! You transmit serenity and peace to those around you and ground emotions and feelings which are especially high during the final days. Your candid advice as to whether or not something is truly necessary is priceless, as you always had an alternative plan in order to avoid compromising the vision. Your knowledge of the industry and unsurpassed work ethic are truly amazing! My husband and I truly felt like the guest of honor at our wedding and were worry free! If I could do it all over again I would definitely come back to seek your professional help! I had an awesome time at the wedding and so did all my guests! Thanks a million!

127Hi Anette,

Before we leave for California tomorrow, I wanted to send you a quick note thanking you so much for not only the past year which could not have gone smoother but for such an amazing wedding. The compliments keep coming from my family and friends. Everything was picture perfect. It has been an absolute pleasure to work with you. I think we made a great team 🙂 I’ll never forget the day when I asked Janice about possibly needing a wedding planner and she immediately mentioned your name.

483Thank you so much for not only your guidance and expertise, but for all the attention you have given me and my family and most importantly a nice friendship. I know I have been one of your more conservative brides- you sensed that since day one yet you allowed me to stay true to myself and my style throughout this entire process.

I know June is a busy month for you and so I wish you the best of luck with all the events.

I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Love,
Maria Cristina

PS: The honeymoon suite was decorated so beautifully.

 

  

Anette was the best and me and my hubby could not have been happier. I have spoken to other brides who tell horror stories of vendors flaking out or the bride and groom running around solving problems. None of that for us! It was smooth sailing and looking back at my wedding photos of us smiling and laughing, I can’t even remember seeing Anette, she was like a Wedding Ninja. Problem? Poof she appears and then the problem disappears. Some other brides are like but “Wouldn’t you rather plan it yourself?” I did! She was just my fairy godmother putting final touches and dealing with the logistics that I certainly don’t have the time for.

Anette, Thank you for making our wedding the best, easy and glamorous affair I dreamt about. Even my hubby says it was the best thing we did!!

On our Tenth Anniversary, we are going to need you again!

Thanks again,

Jerusha & Leo

There are not enough stars on here to tell you how amazing Anette and her team are; Anette planned my wedding for a whole year, and let me tell you I am a picky bride. She went over and beyond for my fiance, my family, and me. Anette helped my mother plan my bridal shower and engagement party out of the goodness of her heart. She is an AMAZING person! She is truly the best investment I made during the whole wedding. We recommend Anette to ever single person we know planning a wedding. They would be lucky to have her. I adore her and will use her for every single event I plan.

We were truly blessed to have such an amazing wedding planner like Anette. With only five months to plan our wedding, Anette was great! She really helped my family make our wedding day spectacular. She helped us plan our engagement party, and helped my mom and mother in-law with my bridal shower. She knew exactly what we wanted and made sure that’s what we had. She is a wonderful person, I felt like I had my best friend planning my wedding. She was always updating us on the vendors, the day of our wedding she took on everything herself. If something went wrong that day, you can be sure you will never know it happened. We recommend Anette to anyone who is planning an event. Thank you Anette for making our wedding day so memorable!!!
