“Anne-Marie listened to my ideas, then completely kicked them up a notch. I learned long ago that if you tell someone exactly what you want, that is exactly what you’ll get. Anne-Marie is a party expert and I gave her the freedom to make my event special and unique.”
Craig Huse, President St. Elmo and Harry & Izzy’s 317.635.0636
"I've been planning events for 15 years, but working with Annie-O's was so refreshing! Just when I thought I'd seen it all, you brought new ideas to the table. Just when I thought costs were as low as possible, you introduced me to new vendors. In working with you, we were able to add some really fun and exciting new things to make an annual event feel truly different for our guests. Thanks Anne-Marie, for saving me time, money and effort, in addition to being such a pleasure to work with during the whole process. You really helped to ease the stress of planning and implementing such a large-scale event."
Lori Roberts, Director of Marketing Reis Nichols Jeweler
"Thanks again for another great event. The Safety Fair and Family Picnic was a hit! For the past two years we've asked you to make this event exciting and different and once again, Annie-O's pulled it off. We enjoyed working with you and really appreciate the passion and creativity you bring to each event. We would highly recommend Annie-O's to any other company looking for event planning services."
Brian Sullivan, Owner Shiel Sexton Company
"Anne-Marie made our company Fall Festival event a raving success. After seeing what she can accomplish, I wouldn't work with another planner in the city except her. In an incredibly short amount of time, she took a scattered vision in my head to an event the people still talk about. In just a few weeks, Anne-Marie brought together a variety of outstanding vendors who would work for her at a great price and do whatever it took to make this event a success. This allowed me to do my normal job and not worry about planning the event. I knew it was all in good hands, Anne-Marie is the best!"
Heather Shah, Human Resources Manager Interactive Intelligence
"Annie-O's is clearly one of the most creative event planning companies I have ever come in contact with. Anne-Marie's out of the box thinking and creative elements add flair to any party that makes it a wow event compared to just any other function. Guests come away with something memorable, something that they've never seen before, the elements that make people talk, and bring any event to the next level. Things I've seen her do don't seem to happen in Indianapolis, more like what you would expect in New York or Los Angeles. I wasn't surprised at all when Indianapolis Monthly named Annie-O's as Best Party Planner in Indy!"
Bruce Livingstone, Disney Event Consultant Walt Disney World
"Annie-O's was a tremendous help in planning our wedding. Anne-Marie's experience and sense of style helped make the process easy and fun. She was able to make suggestions on cost-saving ideas but we never sacrificed elegance. Her relationships with vendors in the area were useful in giving us options and allowing us to feel comfortable with our choices. We couldn't have done it without her!"
Mary Thornton Richards, Bride
"Annie-O's planned our wedding and it was wonderful to know that everything was under control! I was able to enjoy my day without worrying about finalizing the decor, worrying about food issues or paying the vendors. Anne-Marie handled all of it for us. She is so organized and has so many resources at her fingertips. She is a true professional and I would recommend her to anyone with event planning needs!"
Elizabeth Marshall, Insurance Agent State Farm
"We can't thank Annie-O's enough for the huge role you played in the wedding of our dreams. You painted a remarkable vision from the very beginning and worked with us to make it a reality. An outdoor wedding and reception for 375 people presents tremendous logistical challenges. You controlled every aspect with grace and style allowing us to relish in each moment of our celebration. We couldn't have done it without you!"
Adam and Casey Garvey, Owners Gardens of Growth
"Annie-O's planned and executed my 50th birthday with such memorable style that people are still talking about it months later! Anne-Marie was just great, thinking of so many creative and fun twists that I would never have come up with on my own. The best part was the smoothness with which the whole evening ran, so I could completely relax and enjoy my friends and family and dance to my heart's desire! I would heartily recommend Annie-O's to anyone."
Karen Gentleman, President Gentleman & Associates
"What a fabulous party, you really outdid yourself and I was thrilled with the results! My "significant" celebration was a dream come true for me. What could be better than being surrounded by 50 special friends, including you, for this important passage in my life. Many thanks!"
"Anne-Marie, I think your parties are great because you live in the consummate party palace, you serve up the best eats and drinks available in the universe, you have a wonderfully colorful circle of friends, and mostly because you're a really fun person. Of course my favorite thing is that I got invited! Thank you once again for including me on the guest list to share in an amazing evening. I think you could tell I had a great time. I hope you did too!"
Heidi Newman, President Mark My Word!
"Anne-Marie, Two words to describe your party last night: KICK ASS. Thanks so much for inviting us."
Mike and Meredith Garber
"Congratulations on an astoundingly fabulous party! I just can't get over all the detail, all the little things you did to infuse personality and theme. You're just an amazing event planning company. Annie-O's ROCKS!"
"Anne-Marie, You are amazing! You are incredible! You are the best! You have performed magic. Thanks for making my home so festive during the holidays. You did a terrific job of adding your sparkle, while honoring our family favorites. It is beautiful. Thank you!"
"Just a quick note to salute you for the great event last week! You have so much energy and style, and the joy of living fills the air when you design the evening. Congratulations!"
Jackie Nytes, Chief Executive Officer Indianapolis Public Library
"From green flag to checkered flag, your command of the event receives the committee's sincerest gratitude and highest praise. You were the best partner every step of the way and truly made the event a success."
Mary Maxwell, Director of Development Indiana University Simon Cancer Center
"Thank you for all your help with the Gala! You are so wonderful and not to mention so creative. On behalf of everyone at Joy's House, thank you for all of your time and support."
Laura Johnson, Vice President of Family Care Joy's House Adult Day Service
"I wanted to take a few minutes to let you know I really appreciate the great job Annie-O's did for the annual MKNA Twilight Benefit Party. The level of enthusiasm that you displayed was awesome. And of course this is very infectious. We all were caught up in the spirit. Your ideas were truly innovative and fresh. Everyone remarked about the level of professionalism that the party had this year."
