WEDDING CEREMONIES & RECEPTIONS
"Anthony was like family from beginning to end"
"I honestly can not say enough about how wonderful Anthony was as my event coordinator. I knew I needed an extra set of hands, eyes and ears on deck for the day of my wedding, but Anthony helped on a level I did not even expect. From beginning to end he felt like family. He kept track of all paperwork, contracts, due dates, timelines and even family dynamics that needed some extra attention. I never needed to remind him or ask him twice for anything. He was always three steps ahead of me and I was moving quickly! Even when dealing with difficult vendors, he kept my wants and needs in place and made sure what I wanted was being done. The most important thing I can say is he was like family from beginning to end: sweet, caring, strong, trustworthy, professional and absolutely needed. He was calm, reassuring and, most important, he cared. This was not just another wedding to him, He made me feel like I was his sister the way he took care of me throughout the day. I would never plan a big event again with out him."
- Sarah, Bride
"The only thing I would change would be to hire Anthony D. Zaccone Events earlier in the process, for the more than just 'Day-Of' services."
Anthony was absolutely amazing!!! He is so charming and cheerful and just so full of positive energy. My family and friends loved him and kept asking who the adorable Day of Coordinator was. From the first conversation we had on the phone I knew we would develop a great relationship. He worked with us long before the actual wedding. He did an awesome job of contacting our vendors and putting together a wedding day timeline. He ensured that the whole day was flawless. There were a few hiccups during the ceremony but he helped me stay calm and made sure everything went smoothly. Anthony was everywhere, a real valuable asset to our day and was sooo worth it. I don't know how I would have coped if he weren't there. He also wasn't in your face every minute which was great. He was working hard at keeping everything runny smoothly without being overbearing. If you needed anything at all though he'd be there with his so-called "Manny Poppins" bag in a heartbeat. Anthony and Manny Poppins bag came to the rescue when I had some loose threads on my dress. The only thing I would change would be to hire him earlier in the process, for more than just Day of services. He was really such a great asset to our wedding day and we heartfully recommend him to anyone!!
"We loved Anthony! He helped us even in the months leading up to the wedding - not just day-of."
"We loved Anthony! He did an amazing job at getting together our timeline, reaching out to all vendors to confirm setup times, and most importantly - keeping the day moving smoothly. He was an absolute doll to work with, and really helped us even in the months leading up to the wedding - not just day-of. He helped us set up all the DIY props of the wedding, packed everything up for us, and kept the day on schedule. Even 3 months after the wedding, we don't think anything even went wrong... which is the only thing we know, and care to know. :) He's also super affordable ++, so if you are thinking you should skimp on a day-of coordinator, don't do it! Hire Anthony, we highly recommend! "
- Chelsea, Bride
“I cannot begin to describe how invaluable it was to have Anthony as our wedding coordinator.”
"Full disclosure, I am not a planner; but, like most brides, I assumed I could handle everything on my own since we were having a small, intimate wedding. We were referred to Anthony after realizing we needed someone to take care of the day of logistics. Anthony went far above & beyond our expectations. Upon meeting him for the first time, he immediately eased my mind & pulled together a timeline. On the day of, everything went off without a hitch. Anthony checked up on me, setup our reception beautifully, & handled all the logistics. No price can be placed on the peace of mind you have when working with Anthony!"
- Bria, Bride
"We absolutely loved working with Anthony on our wedding. He was charming, professional, & so helpful."
"We had opted for day-of coordination, but he really helped before the event as well. He suggested a wonderful photographer that we ended up hiring. He also sent out a very detailed schedule spreadsheet to all the vendors in the weeks before the wedding, to make sure everyone would show up at the appropriate time. While the event was happening, he took care of all the details & made sure we didn’t worry. We would highly recommend Anthony’s services."
- Leslie, Bride
“I was extremely happy from start to finish & can’t thank you & your team enough for helping my wedding be a wonderful day!”
- Angela, Bride
“I’d highly recommend Anthony D. Zaccone Events for anyone planning a complex event, wedding or otherwise!”
"Anthony D. Zaccone Events was great. We’d done much of the pre-planning but he was able to step in a couple weeks in advance of the event & then day-off to ensure perfect execution. Our wedding was 'do it yourself' with the ceremony on the beach & reception at our house. So while it was relatively informal, we tasked Anthony with managing all the of the details including: procession to/from beach, separate onsite vendors for bar, catering, furniture rental & flowers. What made Anthony so helpful was:
- Able to pick up & execute ideas/plans we had but which were not finalized or thought-through yet
- Thought ahead for us on issues/risks we hadn’t considered on logistics & overall flow of activities
- Great onsite presence & style in what’s always a sort of chaotic day for the couple & wedding party"
- Tom, Groom
“My husband & I were married in November & our reception was beyond our wildest dreams - thanks to Anthony Zaccone!”
"Being that I am very type A, it was difficult for me to allow myself to release that control to a wedding planner, but once I met Anthony, I knew we would be in great hands. He understood our vision right away, coming up with great ideas during our first meeting. Besides his creativity, Anthony was extremely organized & was able to keep us within our budget while still exceeding our expectations. One of the most important things that my husband & I wanted was a one-of-a-kind wedding & Anthony delivered! To this day our guests & family are still talking about how much fun they had. Words cannot express how grateful we are– I truly recommend Anthony’s services to anybody."
- Tiffini, Bride
"As a fellow event planner & producer with very high standards I knew I could count on Anthony to completely execute my vision & stick to the timeline."
He's such a pleasure to work with & makes you feel so at ease - especially on the big day! I am highly recommend him to all the couples I work with.
- Grace, Bride
"Anthony's style is very accommodating, & he was able to provide some guidance with how to manage all of the other vendors we'd be working with."
"We were planning on a 250 person wedding where our ceremony, cocktail hour & reception were all held on the same floor of a warehouse. I had phone interviewed several day-of coordinators & decided to choose Anthony as soon as I hung up. He's very friendly & easy to get along with."
- Lindsay, Bride
"If you are looking for the most amazing wedding planner, Anthony is the man!"
"His attention to detail is outstanding. He is very creative& willing to go above & beyond any request. He will keep you calm during your wedding day, & make sure all of your vendors & family are taken care of. He made my wedding day so special & was always one step ahead of me – getting the reception setup just the way I had envisioned it. I highly recommend him & I am excited to use him again in the future for any parties we plan."
- Kristen, Bride
"Anthony was able to handle everything & made it seamless. I am very happy with his service & level of detail."
"I hired Anthony as a day of coordinator just weeks before my wedding. I had a lot taken care of but needed someone to make sense of things & ensure that everything went smoothly the day of so that everyone in my wedding would not have to worry about anything. Anthony was very proactive from the moment I hired him. He organized all the vendors & made helpful spreadsheets outline contact information & flow of the day. On the day of, he came early & my day went as smoothly as possible. My wedding was a large scale Indian wedding with definitely many "cooks in the kitchen" but Anthony was able to handle everything & made it seamless. I am very happy with his service & level of detail.
- Ankeeta, Bride
"The day could not have been as amazing & memorable as it was without Anthony & his staff."
I didn’t realize just how critical it is to have a Wedding Planner until the day-of. That’s when Anthony’s management of my extremely large family, friends, guests, vendors, décor, technology hiccups & everything else proved to be invaluable. He’s smart, quick, good with people, & always kept me & my Bride top-of-mind."
- John, Groom
"As a the mother-of-the-bride, it was extremely important to me that my daughter & future-son-in law had someone who understood their vision setting up the ceremony & the reception while they spent the day with our families."
"Anthony was so busy all day not only arranging everything to perfection, but also making sure that everything arrived on time & flowed seamlessly throughout the night."
- Tina, Mother of the Bride

I had the great pleasure of seeing Anthony work first hand as he planned our largest corporate event from start to finish this past spring. I admired a few things in particular. First & foremost it was his attention to detail & organizational skills. Second, it was his critical thinking & problem solving skills – whenever something unexpected came up, Anthony almost immediately devised a solution to the issue & made it look effortless. Third, it was his tremendous capacity to communicate. No matter how hectic, Anthony was able to articulate his instructions & made sure things were done properly. Finally it was his ability to bring cohesiveness to a group. When you work with Anthony you are a part of a team & if interested, he will gladly explain & teach you the 'tricks of the trade'.
