"Anika from Assorted Artistries was integrally important to the success of our wedding weekend – we literally could not have had such a stress-free, seamless, and absolutely perfect day if she wasn’t in the picture....And - unlike what so many people had told us to expect – our wedding did not go by in a flash – we were able to pause and savor every moment because we were so relaxed and happy! I can’t thank Anika enough for everything she was able to do for us –-she took our vision and flawlessly brought it to life." - The Rays, 2019

"I don't know what we would have done without Anika. If she hadn't been there I don't think I could have slowed down at all to enjoy the festivities. Not only did Anika really go above and beyond with vendors, decor ideas, set-up, clean-up, and tons more, she also allowed us to be present and really bask in the glow of the wedding weekend."- The Uwilingiyimana-Parsons, 2019

"Anika was nothing short of amazing! Friendly, attentive, detail oriented, and a complete go getter - this woman will be on her feet all night to make your wedding a breeze. I felt completely at ease the day of my wedding and it's all thanks to Anika's hard work. Do not hesitate to book Assorted Artistries, you will not be disappointed! Thank you, Anika!" - The Bennetts, 2018

Anika was the best partner we could have asked for. We planned a Vermont wedding from NYC and knew we would need extra help coordinating the day of the wedding. Anika was provided that & more - she was our sanity in the hectic 30 days before the wedding (we had no idea those days could be so crazy) and continued to work miracles the weekend of the wedding. She took care of problems before they arose, was 1 step (or 10) ahead of everyone that weekend. She prepped for every weather scenario and worked seamlessly coordinating with our other vendors. She supported not only us, the bride & groom, that weekend - but she made sure our family & friends could enjoy the weekend by our side instead of running around taking care of things. I would recommend hiring Anika in a heartbeat to anyone getting married in the NY/VT area. - The Trasks, 2019

Greatest wedding planner!
I was so stressed and unsure of what I should be doing and Anika kept me calm and on task. Her creativity and the care she puts into what she does is unmatchable. It was so nice to be able to be present the day of my wedding and know that she was there to handle everything. -The Doners 2018

But really- never would have made it through my wedding without Anika. AMAZING person who goes above and beyond!!!❤️- The Condlins- Thompsons, 2016

Matt and I can't say enough great things about Anika. She was incredible to work with for our wedding from our very first meeting. We were planning our wedding from a distance, and she was great in making so many arrangements locally. She worked tirelessly to make our day amazing. She was a true partner in seeing our vision and helped to execute it perfectly. Neither us or our parents had to stress over anything because we knew that we were in good hands. She helped to make all of our dreams come true and would recommend her to anyone getting married. Thank you for all that you did (from making table numbers the night before, to our wedding party sign and the barn doors for our sweet heart table to just name a few little things). Thank you!- The Rothenbergs, 2017

Of all the items we budgeted for, Assorted Artistries and the I Do Crew were by far the best investment. Anika connected me with hair and makeup, did last minute orders for tablecloths, ran the rehearsal and site setup/takedown. The team even had people working to make sure parking went well. Absolutely the BEST! And I cannot forget to mention all the advice and encouragement Anika provided in the days leading up to the event. We were so stressed but Anika made everything so smooth and easy - she was truly amazing! We connected with Assorted Artistries because we both are very detail-oriented and we wanted to just enjoy our day. We also wanted a buffer between us and our families & friends so that we could have a stress-free day to enjoy with our loved ones. Having our wedding at home added another level of craziness - but Anika ran with it! She put the finishing touches on EVERYTHING and made our day even more beautiful and unique than we could've imagined. Throughout the process, we shared our concerns and Assorted Artistries literally made them go away! Anika even had a few surprises up her sleeve, making our entire experience absolutely incredible! (Like organizing a zoom dress appointment, and surprising us with a mid-winter photo shoot and custom designed cookies for the wedding!!) - The Dragons 2021

Anika and her team were the most organized, calm and fantastic group to have run our wedding day. Her rental inventory is insanely gorgeous and she is a true creator when it comes to a vision. She had every little thing ready to go and organized before I could even worry. I never heard a peep about any hiccups because they were there for it all. Anika quickly becomes a friend because of how easy going she is! I previously worked in the industry and can say she is one of the absolute best in the ADK's/Vermont/Northern NY areas for wedding planners.- The Channels 2021

Anika and her amazing team were worth their weight in gold!!! The first decision we made when we chose a wedding date was to hire Anika and she was so thoughtful, flexible & creative throughout the entire process! We were complimented by almost every guest who attended our wedding on the decor, smoothness of the day, and attention to detail. They were absolutely right…there was nothing left to chance. We feel so fortunate to have had Anika and Anna running the show for the weekend…they made sure our big day went off without a hitch & we’re so grateful to have them on our team! Highly recommend assorted artistries for any event you need to plan! - The Forkeys 2021

Anika is incredible! She is so positive, and she might be the most organized person I have ever met. If we could do it all over again, we would 100% hire her again. At the beginning of my wedding planning process I didn't think I needed a coordinator/planner, but looking back I really don't know how I would have done it without her. Our wedding truly was a dream come true, A+ experience, and I firmly believe that without Anika and her team it would have been B/B+. You only get married once, and I figured if I was going to spend so much time and effort planning this event I wanted it to be perfect, not nearly perfect, and Anika and her team were the difference between nearly perfect and perfect.
She thought of everything and had a great answer to all of my questions, and she put out all the little fires on wedding day. She shared a google sheet with me that had a detailed breakdown of all the things I needed to do before the wedding that was far more comprehensive than anything you can find online. She was so helpful and attentive throughout our wedding planning process, and most importantly she cheered me on and radiated positivity when the planning stress was getting the better of me.
Her rentals are the best! They are so reasonably priced, and I don't have any left over decorations that I have to resell or throw away which is such a weight off my shoulders (also more eco friendly!). They were all so beautiful and really made my vision/theme come to life.
All our vendors loved working with her, and they all told me how helpful she was to them. She had never worked at our venue before, but our contact at the venue was extremely impressed with her. She made such an impact on my family and wedding party that my sister even gave her a shout out during her maid of honor speech!
TLDR: hire Anika, she will make your life easier and your wedding a dream!! The Dieszmans 2022

Anika and her team were fabulous to work with. Anika is so lovely and friendly, she felt like an old friend by the end! We rented decor through Assorted Artistries and had the team set up and take down the decor at our venue. We knew we didn’t want to buy any decor in bulk - it felt wasteful, like “what am I going to do with all these things post wedding?!” It felt great making the “green” choice and knowing the rented decor could be reused over and over again! Anika totally got our outdoorsy vibe and ran with it. I knew I could fully trust her and it became one less thing we had to worry about! Everyone was raving about the way it turned out! We are so happy with their services - they are worth every penny! And they are reasonably priced to boot. Anika worked with our tight budget and was so flexible. Highly recommend! - The Karkers 2022

Don't just take our word for it, listen to what our clients shared about their experience with Assorted Artistries.

Hear From Our Clients

Wedding planner extraordinaire!!! Anika and her team were absolutely incredible. I worked with Anika for about 10 months leading up to our wedding - helping me find the BEST vendors, designing a full visual plan for floral and decor (her rental inventory is amazing and ever growing!) and always having an answer or solution to my many questions. Anika helped me take the wedding I pictured in my head and make it a reality - every details was perfect. Onsite Anika handled every curveball from the venue, weather and even an unexpected guest - all with grace and confidence. Anika and team went above and beyond, easing my stress, taking care of our pups at the end of the night - I couldn't have dreamt of anything better. I'm so grateful to have had Anika as our wedding planner and even more grateful to have her as a new friend. Assorted Artistries - I cannot wait to plan the next event!! The Maitalassos 2022

Anika, Jamie, and the team at Assorted Artistries took all of the tiny but super important details of our day to heart and helped us to create a plan for that took away our stress of the day. We had an incredible time at our wedding and through the events of the weekend. We LOVED working with all of her team, but Anika herself was amazing to communicate with, accommodating our 12/13 hour time difference for calls, and always prompt through email. She streamlined and coordinated our vendor teams and communication, and was fun to talk and work with during the whole process. By using her incredible decor inventory and ideas, we were able to have the more sustainable wedding we were looking for. We are so pleased to have worked with her! The Clapps 2022

Anika and her team were incredible to work with! Our wedding day was an absolute dream thanks to Anika and her team. All the little details were taken care of and we truly could fully enjoy ourselves all weekend long. Anika's organization and planning skills were exactly what we needed to pull off our wedding, we couldn't have done it without her. Her wedding workbook is a dream come true, it allowed us to put all our thoughts into one place and stay organized. Anika's dedication to supporting couples in having a fairytale wedding was so evident throughout the entire process. We felt heard, supported and cared for the entire time. We can't imagine our day without her! The Russells 2022

There are not enough words to describe how unbelievable Anika and her entire team were throughout our wedding process. We live in Philadelphia and got married in Lake Placid, NY. Living miles and hours away from our wedding location can sometimes provide stress, but Anika and her team were relentless in their pursuit of making the planning process as smooth as possible. She is unbelievably communicative and positive in everything she does. She is organized, beyond knowledgeable and so flexible to make sure everyone is on the same page. From emails to phone calls, she goes above and beyond to get the job done and made us feel so confident going in to wedding weekend that it would be exactly what we dreamt of.
Now fast forward to the actual wedding weekend. Anika and her team were present from the rehearsal on. Making our families and friends realize from the very first moment this was going to be the best weekend of our lives. It fell nothing short of that. Not only is she an unbelievable professional, she is an even better human being. We are SO SO SO fortunate to have crossed paths with her and her team. They truly provided us with the wedding of our dreams. The Ockenden Kuesters 2022

Anika and her team were awesome in ensuring our daughter's wedding, held on the property of our lake house in Plattsburgh, NY was a dream come true. It was a complicated affair since the bride, groom and the majority of guests were from out of town. The bride and groom moved cross country, dealt with health issues and lost a dear member of their family during the last few months leading up to the wedding. Anika wasn't phased at all when needed decisions were delayed or adjustments to vision were needed. She was gracious through it all and assured us that the final outcome would be glorious - which it was. Anika and her team were totally present and focused on this wedding in the days before, the day of and days after. Their energy and joy in what they do was so evident and infectious. Thanks Associated Artistries for a wedding that exceeding our dreams on all levels! The Deckers 2022

It’s hard to even write a review for someone who’s so incredible! Hiring Anika and her team was truly the best decision we made when planning our wedding. Anika handled all coordination with vendors the month of the wedding, ran the rehearsal, and made sure everything on our wedding day was absolutely perfect! She is truly a magician who had everything under control and seemed to somehow even be in 3 places at once. Her and her team also did an amazing job staging. Everything was even more beautiful than I imagined. The rentals we used from them were also beautiful and really elevated the entire event. I was able to enjoy every minute of my wedding day and didn’t have a care in the world thanks to her. Do yourself a favor and hire Anika! I promise you won’t regret it! The Froehlichs 2022

Anika and her team allowed me to truly enjoy my wedding day. Wedding planning was not fun or easy for me, but I promised myself I would enjoy the day, and the major step in making that happen was hiring Anika. I hired Anika for day of coordinating services after we had found almost all our vendors but was looking for someone to physically put the day together, to keep us on task day of, and also just verify and confirm with all the vendors. The packets that Anika provided allowed for me to ask questions that I had not considered and also forced people to make decisions before the very last minute. It also made me really take a look at all the décor that I’ve been collecting for the past year and half and really give it all a purpose. For all the décor I didn’t have, I looked at the rentals that are included in the price of our package, and made all the selections I needed. Weekend of the wedding, Anika got us all setup with the rehearsal, which was no easy task with 3 small children and wandering parents. When we got to the rehearsal, the room was almost completely set up already and it was like I had completed all the decorating myself. What I had diligently laid out in the visual plan was followed perfectly, and all the extra pieces I included were wonderfully tied in. For the best of my knowledge, there was only one real hiccup day of, but nothing that couldn’t easily be fixed. I’m sure there were others, but Anika handled it without my knowledge. I was able to truly enjoy my day because I knew that things would be taken care of without my direct participation, which is exactly what I wanted. When you work so hard pulling everything together, make all the decisions and handle a lot of big feelings from those around you, you deserve to have a peaceful day and Anika and her team can make that happen! The Wasems 2022

If I could do it all again 1,000,000,000 times over… I would choose Anika and her I Do crew with Assorted Artistries each and every time. Anika was a literal godsend at our wedding and I do not know what we would’ve done without her. She was the perfect person to balance me out as a bride and I commend her for all of her efforts. She took all of my wild and crazy ideas and we talked them through, and she executed them into a picturesque one-of-a-kind vision that all of my wedding guests are still raving about. She and her team sculpted a gorgeous cloud-like structure that took over the sweetheart table and the fireplace behind it and omg it was STUNNING. It took my breath away. Anika coordinated with several of my vendors and took the time to meet with them and give them the rundown.
Whenever I felt overwhelmed or stressed I always knew she was there. I genuinely can say that as someone who was so hesitant to add a planner to my team for a long while I’m so glad that I did because I think that my day would have been a mess without Anika and her team. Thank you for being so kind, respectful, and all-around rock stars.
Anika and her team took BTS photos and videos too. I absolutely love them!!!! There are so gems in there that are so precious and I will forever hold them near to my heart. Thank you for playing such an integral part in our day. Dominique & Javier 2022

Epic...pure perfection
When a bride envisions her wedding day, she tries to imagine the perfect day...I know I did! And thats why I called Assorted Artistries. Anika and her team is the definition of perfection. I wish I could live our wedding day 100 times over again, if only to be able to work with Anika again and again. Her energy, her enthusiasm, her hard work in order to make every dream come true on your wedding day....every aspect is top notch. I am confident in saying that Anika has found her calling within the wedding planning (and event planning) world. Assorted Artistries made all my dreams come true and Anika made the wedding planning process fun, effortless and stress free! If there is anything you MUST do for your wedding, it is picking up the phone and calling Assorted Artistries!! The Tobrockes 2023

with many couples and families choosing to not have young children in attendance it's opened a door for the adults to have a blast in non-traditional roles such as flower girl  and ring bearer- We Love It! with flowers!
