There aren’t enough outstandingly wonderful things available in the English language to say about ANJE Soirees and ESP., the woman who makes ANJE beyond the best, Andi Dyal. If Wonder Woman actually did exist and she was in the wedding busines...
s, she would be Andi Dyal.
ANJE Soirees was the recommended planner by our club where we would be getting married, so we called her right away. During the first chat I had with Andi, I turned to my mom and said, “mom, we NEED her”. At the time, I didn’t realize how much that statement would actually be true.
From the start, I knew we made the right choice. Everything Andi did was catered to us and absolutely flawless. She took an incredible amount of stress off my plate, and gave me the guidance I was so desperately in need of, and kept everything super organized for me. When I lost track of something, she was there to kindly remind me. She is very well connected to the area and when I mentioned who my planner was, vendors would say, “oh then you are in excellent hands”. Andi’s reputation precedes her. Since we were getting married in Key Largo, but lived in NYC, it was so comforting to have Andi on the ground to keep everything running smoothly.
Our wedding date was Nov. 4, 2017, at Ocean Reef Club in Key Largo. We had this date set since mid August 2016...Well, come Sept 2017, the statement "needed Andi" took on a whole new nature when Hurricane Irma tore through south FL. When we got the call that Ocean Reef had suffered major damage and would have to cancel my wedding, I couldn’t believe it. But given how much damage and destruction so many people suffered, a cancelled wedding was small, and I had hope knowing Andi was working around the clock to find a new venue that could take us with only a month to go.
A day later, Andi had secured us a new venue in Naples that could hold all my guests and accommodate my whole wedding weekend schedule. Amazing! We were so thrilled...
Then, two weeks later, we got another a call I thought was a joke. The hotel in Naples had to cancel due to damage that occurred AFTER we signed our contract there and were promised by the hotel that it would be ready for us. At this point it was comical - guests flying in from all over the world, no venue , no rooms.. How would we be able to find a venue that wasn’t already booked AND could accommodate us with only 3 weeks to go. But we had Andi, so I knew it would be OK.
After a few days of panic, Andi provided us with several great options in the Miami area that could take us. We ended up choosing The Betsy Hotel in South Beach.
Nov. 4th, finally arrived and from the moment I woke up that morning, to the moment I went to bed, it was a perfect day. Andi had everything organized and she and the ANJE team were there the entire day/night working behind the scenes to make sure my everything perfect. It was a fairytale. After all the drama, it was as perfect and in some ways better than I had envisioned, all thanks to Andi and ANJE Soirees. The Betsy Hotel was fantastic.
Honestly, my wedding would not have happened at all, and certainly not as perfectly as it did, if it weren’t for Andi and her team. She is an incredible on all fronts, and that is evident in how ANJE Soirees executes and delivers perfection. I hope every bride is lucky enough to work with ANJE. If I could give Andi the moon to thank her for basically planning THREE weddings for me and saving my special day, I would.
