Anne Marie Kleis, founder of AMK Events is an international wedding planner with over 20 years of experience creating elegant weddings/events in the Caribbean and in Europe.Her unique background, passion, attention to detail and expertise make her an asset to any event.

She was born in Chicago from a Dutch-German Father, Dr. Walter Kleis and a Puerto Rican mother Margarita Pasarell, hence the "Dutcharican" heritage, a true melange of her European flair and Caribbean "joie de vivre" ,who does not like to dance salsa or Regeton?She was raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico, playing competitive tennis in her youth and representing Puerto Rico in many International Competition such as the Pan American Games of 1979.. After graduating high school from La Academia San José she attended the University of Pennsylvania, playing the number 1 position as a freshman and honored as a member of The Ivy League Team in the sport of tennis, later graduated from Rollins College with B.A. in foreign Languages: Spanish, French and Italian. After college, she became a tennis professional by teaching and coaching juniors as well as playing a couple of professional tennis tournaments taking her to Zambia, Africa , where she reached the finals.Her love for art and fashion made her change careers and went to study Fashion Buying and Merchandising at the Fashion institute of Technology in NYC , where she lived and worked for 6 years at such prestigious retail stores:Saks Fifth Ave, Ann Taylor, Alain Manouquian and Daniel Hechter. After a beautiful hot summer day in NYC,Anne Marie decided to return to her native Puerto Rico and worked for 2 years with Ralph Lauren Factory Store in Old San Juan as a manager. It was in 1995, that she founded her business of event rental and planning since her sister,Jacqueline Kleis a chef and caterer needed help in producing the events..

Anne Marie has planned and coordinated over 1,000 events/ weddings throughout Puerto Rico , Vieques, British Virgin Islands( Necker, Virgin Gorda and Scrub island) , The United States as well as in Europe. Planning lavish Hindu Weddings , gorgeous Jewish celebrations, elaborate Catholic Weddings, small and intimate elope weddings and any type of event that will be memorable to all those attending. Taking each event very seriously , likes to consider her clients as her dear friends, coaching them to the biggest day of their lives, their wedding day! Anne Marie is a wedding coach, not just a service provider. A dream maker and what is life without dreams? " all men dream;but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are the dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible."

I am very blessed and fortunate to be a part of so many friends weddings! I love to create and to produce beautiful and unforgettable wedding and events throughout the world.. One of my personal dreams was to plan an event in Paris, France. I was lucky enough to be able to do this last year and celebrate my 20 years in business at the Four Season's George V Hotel in Paris with close friends and family. It was a true dream come true , tears of joy and happiness are my memories and this is what life is about...Making dreams come true so that we can have beautiful memories for years to come..

Sincerely yours,



Anne Marie Kleis Read less

Anne Marie was an amazing wedding planner. My husband and I chose a destination wedding. We are from NJ and chose Puerto Rico to celebrate our wedding with our closest friends and family. She educated us on all aspects of planning a destination wedding. She helped us conceptualize, budget, and execute the most amazing wedding I have ever attended. And it was OURS! She was the key in making it all happen. Anne Marie worked tirelessly to consult and advise us in all aspects of changing contracts with the venue and all vendors. She helped us plan the wedding rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, ceremony, and reception! When things got complicated, she had a way of making things simple so that we did not get overwhelmed. Planning a wedding can be overwhelming, but she was essential to our sanity. She advocated for our best interest all the way to the end. She protected us from potential hiccups and actual problems because she always had a solution. Somehow, she always had a solution. Amazing! Then, when we were all on site the week of the wedding, she was the rock at my side who made everything possible to keep me and my groom stress free. You need someone like her. She is a genius. She's savvy, but kind-hearted. She works tirelessly, but she makes it look effortless. In the end, my husband, myself, and my family are so grateful.
If you're in the market of looking for a planner, AMK Events is essential. Anne Marie is award winning for a reason. You'll see when you hire her!

Choosing Anne Marie as my wedding planner was one of the best decisions I've ever made. I wish I could give her 100 stars because she literally deserves every single one of them. We live in NY and planned our destination wedding in Puerto Rico all by phone calls and emails with Anne Marie. We made a trip out to Puerto Rico last year to meet her and she had a full agenda of meetings with the resort and vendors so we would be familiar and meet everyone. A few months after she had to make a trip here to NYC and she took the time out of her schedule to invite us to meet her to go over details and it was very helpful seeing her again in person to go over everything. She went above and beyond to make our wedding a total success and it was more than what we could have ever imagined. Her personality is amazing, you could immediately tell she loves what she does, professional, extreme helpful with any question no matter the time, she's extremely familiar with all the vendors and very known. When vendors would ask for my wedding planner's name, I would say Anne Marie Kleis and they would say "Wow, she's great to work with." I can't imagine what my wedding would have been like without her. She helped me get the best deals with my vendors while still staying within budgets and even managed to get a few extra things as a surprise to us that we didn't even know about. Words can't express how awesome she is. She made our process so much easier and it was an absolute pleasure working with her. I used reviews from wedding wire to choose Anne Marie so I hope my review helps many brides to also make a great decision in working with her. I can gaurantee she will make your wedding day even more memorable: )

Anne Marie was an angel in disguise. My husband and I had a horrible experience with another wedding planner and we were feeling hopeless. Anne Marie took over and not once did I feel stress, overwhelmed , or anxiety. She took care of every minor detail, she set appointments so that we could speak and go over every detail. She not only was she our wedding planner, she became a good friend. Anne we cannot thank you enough. My wedding was executed exactly the way I dreamt it would. Thank you !

I could not have asked for a more beautiful experience with any other wedding planner. Anne Marie and Barbara are the cream of the crop.

I started my journey looking for a wedding planner almost 2 years ago. I talked to a few planners, but Anne Marie was the only one that really made me feel comfortable. My fiancé (now husband) and I had never visited Puerto Rico, but we wanted a destination wedding. We were nervous at first, but Anne Marie took all of the stress of planning away. From coordinating all of the vendors, to talking to me whenever I wanted, to answering every single question, to making wonderful recommendations, I am very happy with the way my day turned out. I was an extremely nervous bride, as we were on a tight budget, but she didn't let that hinder the vision for something extravagant. She really makes the experience personal- and it brought me to tears. I couldn't believe that someone I never met cared so much- and yes, she gets paid, but the feeling you get can't be bought. She is truly one of a kind.

I really couldn't have asked for anything more. She, Barbara, and La Concha EXCEEDED my expectations. I have gotten so many compliments from my guests- and I couldn't have done anything without AMK Events. I wish I could say more, but my day was perfect. Thank you so much !!!

I could not have asked for a more beautiful experience with any other wedding planner. Anne Marie and Barbara are the cream of the crop.

I started my journey looking for a wedding planner almost 2 years ago. I talked to a few planners, but Anne Marie was the only one that really made me feel comfortable. My fiancé (now husband) and I had never visited Puerto Rico, but we wanted a destination wedding. We were nervous at first, but Anne Marie took all of the stress of planning away.

Anne Marie and Barbara were awesome. They made our wedding day beyond our expectations. We were very grateful to have them on our team! Everything ran smoothly and with such ease. Our family and friends are still talking about how beautiful everything was! They responded quickly with emails and calls. I could not have ask for a better planner! I would highly recommend AMK Events if your planning on getting married in Puerto Rico.

I absolutely loved working with Anne-Marie and Barbara! I live in Texas, so having someone I could trust to plan my wedding helped keep me at ease and stress free. Anne-Marie's went above and beyond in bringing my vision to life. I can't thank her enough for making our wedding day one to remember.
