AMK Events! What more can I say. They were fantastic! Quick responses and detailed planning made my wedding day easy and wonderful! They helped to coordinate every aspect of my wedding-photography, location the ceremony and dinner after, minister and any other thing I could come up with. Helped me keep my budget at a comfortable range for my now husband and I. All I had to do was show up. They even helped us once we arrived to San Juan PR (the day before my wedding!) to compete the necessary paperwork for our marriage license.
For our beach wedding I asked her for a canopy to stand under, but got so much more then I could have imagined. The huppa that was there was absolutely beautiful with my wedding colors and pretty colored flowers that adorned it.
It was a crowded day at the beach, which she helped to control so that my day could be special and my pictures clear of any uninvited guests.
Overall it was just a great day from the weather to the ceremony and dinner after.

This review is long overdue - by far the BEST decision we made for our wedding was to hire AMK Events. And the best money we spent. Anne Marie is fantastic!

We were planning a destination wedding and started the process alone. We realized we needed help after a scouting trip where we discovered we almost signed a reception space in a very sketchy part of town. OOPS. With Anne Marie I found the essence of what we wanted was taken very seriously and she has a beautiful way of putting you at ease that everything will turn out great.

And it really did turn out great - because of her and her able staff. She gave us realistic expectations of budget for various vendors, gave us great vendor recommendations, and basically took charge in a very calm, steady, and polite professional way. As with all weddings, there were kinks along the way, but Anne Marie and staff always had solutions and everything was handled seemlessly.

To future brides - I know it may seem like a big cost for something you could do on your own, but it becomes like another full time job! Please believe me when I say that AMK will save you so much time and also a lot of money in the long run. My only regret is that I didn't have them on board from the very beginning. If you book them you will not be sorry!!

Anne Marie was a blessing. We were unable to get to Puerto Rico prior to the wedding week so she had to determine what vendors to recommend by talking to me over the phone. She got our style and preferences immediately and recommended the most wonderful vendors for us from florist and photographer to makeup artist and officiant. I had already picked my venue but sure she would have helped us there had we needed it. The week we got there, she was absolutely fabulous helping us through the license process and meeting with our vendors to plan our special day. By the time the wedding and reception was there, I felt like she was part of our celebration as a guest and not just a vendor we had procured a service from. She was great about staying within budget but also suggesting those special adds that we just don't think about as a bride. I would highly recommend her.

Anne Marie was a life saver!
We wanted a destination wedding, but had no idea where to start. I decided a wedding planner was the way to go. I emailed a few wedding planners in the San Juan area and Anne Marie responded within the hour. Responsiveness was super important to me and Anne Marie and Barbara (her assistant) would get back to me immediately.
We planned a trip to San Juan to look at venues and meet with vendors. Anne Marie is well known and has worked with just about every vendor in San Juan, so she was able to suggest vendors that were perfect for our wedding. When we visited San Juan in September, she arranged meetings with all of our vendors we were interested in for a Q&A session. She picked us up at our hotel and in 7 hours our whole wedding was planned! It was a totally stress free experience.
The other thing I loved was she set up a meeting with all of our vendors 4 days before our wedding, so we could make sure everyone was on the same page and come the day of the wedding there would be no confusion. This made me feel so much better having the final meeting with every vendor, since the last time we met up with them was 6 months earlier.
She was a HUGE help for our welcome dinner, which was not part of her contract, but I know she wanted to make sure everything was perfect for our wedding weekend.
The wedding went off wonderfully and everything came together.
I can't thank or recommend Anne Marie enough. She is an amazing event planner and helped us plan the perfect wedding!!

Annemarie and her team were fabulous! She met with us on several occasions and took us to a variety of vendors, so we could make the best choices for our budget. From the first time we met her it was clear that she truly loves what she does, and exudes positive energy as she gushes over this or that beautiful wedding, and helps paint a picture that your special day will be beautiful as well. She also is very learned when it comes to local accommodations for your guests, and appears to have relationships with not only wedding day venues, but with the surrounding restaurants, which helped us book our rehearsal dinner quite smoothly. While destination weddings can be stressful, simply due to the fact that you can't be physically present for every stage of planning, Annemarie and her team truly help assuage that stress! All in all she did a great job!

My husband and I would love to give a huge thanks to both Anne Marie and Barbara for their exceptional service and dedication to our wedding. With their help our wedding day was magical. My family and friends can't stop raving about how beautiful our wedding was.

From the first time we talked to Anne Marie, we knew she was the perfect planner for us. She listened to everything we said and heard what we wanted. Her professionalism was astounding. She was so patient, helpful and available at all times. She went above and beyond to make sure every little detail was exactly how we wanted.

We live in California, so the thought of a destination wedding was pretty scary. Anne Marie and Barbara walked us through every step of the way, via conference calls and emails. Once we arrived in Puerto Rico, Anne Marie picked us up at our hotel. She spent the whole day with us, meeting with vendors, reviewing sites and getting every detail settled. She made all the difficult things look seamless and she did it with a smile. We are so very grateful to AMK Events for helping us create the most amazing wedding day ever!
Thank you both so very much, Nayana and Eric Darrah

Being a control freak I was a little hesitant in hiring a wedding planner until I began to get frustrated with vendors in Puerto Rico not returning phone calls or emails. I needed a no nonsense type of individual to help me get the job done. I’d interviewed a few planners on the island before receiving a call back from Anne Marie; ten minutes into our conversation I was ready to provide her with my credit card number. Her warm bubbly personality and sense of style had won me over. We chatted for over an hour about events she’d done all over the island and in the UK. Goggling her proved she was the real deal. Other brides had falling in love with her level of service, creative concepts and not to mention her vendor list. Within days of me signing a contract and provided photos of my ideas I was blasted with quotes from vendors and a real game plan. I knew then that I’d made the right choice.

We traveled to San Juan to meet Anne Marie face to face after months of planning via email and phone and it was as if we’d known each other for years. During this time she scheduled for us to meet with each and every vendor to go over our contracts. What I thought was going to be a rushed and overwhelming day turned out to be a fabulous one. It was like hanging out with one of my bridesmaids. She had a sense of when I was unhappy with something and helped us express our expectations fully. Her recommendations of vendors were spot on; even the rehearsal dinner site was amazing. In which at our tasting she footed the bill totally unexpected yet truly appreciated.

Anne Marie partnered with Barbara are a dynamic duo. If Anne Marie was not available then Barbara was there to step in and never missed a beat. When I received a call from FedEx that a box was undeliverable Barbara told me not to worry she would find it and when in an hour I received a call from her. Many of the streets in San Juan share the same name yet different zip codes and for some reason 1 of my 4 boxes ended up somewhere else. Barbara went out of her way to contact FedEx for me and tracked the box down at the end of the day of a Friday none the less.

Anne Marie has such repetition in Puerto Rico that the mere mention of her names changes then sound of a vendor’s voice. They automatically know that your wedding is in great hands. Each and every vendor we worked with spoke highly of Barbara and her.

Our wedding day went just as she’d planned. If something went wrong I had no idea and I still have a smile on my face from that.
Between the two of them every task and every detail was completed beyond my satisfaction. She was such a pleasure to work with that I would recommend her to EVERYONE.

Anne Marie and her colleague Barbara are compassionate, detail-oriented, and will work tirelessly to give you a spectacular wedding from start to finish. In PR, relationships matter tremendously. AMK knows every wedding vendor; more importantly, every vendor worth their salt knows and wants her business. Because she carries tremendous respect in the area, you can be assured that even if you don’t get that email answered within 48 hours from a vendor they are doing their job and will be providing a high-level of service. AMK would get something moving along or translate our vision effectively when we had trouble communicating, negotiating, or working with a given vendor. Also, AMK leads you to the best in class, which is helpful when you are trying to decide who to go with but cannot meet them in person. She’s honest and will give you the pros and cons for each vendor. Finally, AMK is incredibly determined to get you the best product. At one point, I saw her actually climbing a ladder to put up paper lanterns for us because it wasn’t in the vendor’s plan and she knew they were in our original vision. Our guests thoroughly enjoyed the wedding and gave endless compliments—many of them saying it was one of the best weddings they’ve been to! In retrospect, we could never imagine doing a wedding in PR without a wedding coordinator. However, having worked with a different one initially, we can confidently say that not all coordinators are the same. In terms of level of service and genuinely caring about their clients, Anne Marie and Barbara are in a class of their own. They will not settle until they know you are happy and will put a ton of hours in, especially in the lead up and on the big weekend. Now that we are married, their warmth and generosity will be missed!
