The mark of an effective, FABULOUS wedding/event planner is the ability to be calm amidst a storm—and no one is more calm, collected, and in control than Anne! From the moment we met her, there was almost a moment of uncertainty whether she was able to grasp the enormity of the situation, i.e., we were a wreck, and she had her eyes on the prize the entire time. What we appreciated most about her was the fact that WE DID NOT HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT A SINGLE THING. She took care of every detail: down to the tilt of the flowers, to the shade of the lighting, to the perfect cocktail complement to the theme of our wedding—Anne was IN CHARGE. For a detail-oriented, Type A groom like me…Anne could not have done a better job. She was simply amazing!
Having Anne run your event is like having three of yourself running in three different directions making it all happen. She is ridiculously hard working with a hilarious sense of humor that keeps everything in perspective and puts you immediately at ease. Anne has impeccable taste and the relationships at her fingertips to make to make your wish list a reality. There are no strangers to Anne, only chefs she hasn't met yet.

From the first call to the moment we left after our wedding Anne went above and beyond. Her and her staff made it easy and stress-less for me and my husband.
It was such a joy to work with Anne and her team. We were able to have our rehearsal dinner there the night before the wedding and after the ceremony, transformed the reception room into the most beautiful lounge style reception I have ever seen! The room was stunning with beautiful purple uplighting (which matched the flowers) and she brought in a round sofa with ottomans. Richard Hartog took our photos and they are so beautiful and so unique. Anne accommodated our need to have the cocktail hour upstairs in the patio and when we all came back down for the reception, the party really got started with dancing, good food and so much fun. If you are looking for a unique and beautiful setting for your wedding or event. give Anne a call for the most special wedding you can imagine!
"Anne along with her two assistants were amazing! Nothing short of miracle workers. They came prepared and ready to help in any way possible. I really couldn't have done it without them! Anne is so knowledgeable about how weddings are supposed to go and gave us great insight and direction. With her help I was able to just be in the moment (which is what every bride wants and needs) The day went almost perfect but Anne was there to "fix" stuff and able to think outside the box to solve problems and put out any fires. I was reluctant to hire anyone because I'm a control freak. But I gave her my list of priorities and my "vision" and it was her mission to make it happen. She really took the time to listen to me and get every detail so that she knew every detail to my wedding. She even left us a very special gift that showed me that we were not just another event to her. We opened up our hearts and entrusted the most important day of our lives to her and I am forever grateful. I'm sad I didn't get a picture with the Partini Team because to me each one was important and I hope they know I really appreciated all the hard work making my day so memorable and fun!"
I've never hired a party planner before, but I was planning a large party at my home, and I was short and time and organization. Anne of Partini provided a very reasonable quote which hardly put a dent in my party budget. Where I had ideas, Partini was very faithful to my vision, and where I lacked ideas, they had great suggestions. Partini found me a wonderful caterer and great musicians. They made all arrangements for rentals of tables, chairs and heaters. They made suggestions about arranging the house, and made the backyard look beautiful with lights, lanterns, flowers and linens. When rain seemed likely, they arranged with a day's notice for a large canopy and oversaw its installation. Partini was great about communicating and accommodating my schedule. They reminded me about details I would have forgotten. They made set up and clean up a breeze. They loaned equipment and decorations at no additional cost. Anne and Angelo and the people they work with are just the nicest people. The party was just perfect. My guests and I loved it. I could not have done it without Partini.
I hired Partini to help me plan and organize my grandfather's memorial service this past summer. I really enjoy planning events but because of my grief, it was challenging for me to focus on planning for this one. My budget was limited so I appreciated that Partini had an option to use their concierge services. For a very reasonable investment, I was able to secure their assistance in finding a venue, ordering flowers and managing guest list, maps and our printed programs. Not all party planners offer this option which makes this company so unique and budget friendly. I truly could not have done this without their help. I highly recommend them for those times when you can't get everything done yourself but want to have the best event possible.
