Annemarie Donaker, Professional Wedding Planner
“Annemarie Donaker Weddings and Events is really a wish come true for me! I realized many years ago that I was destined to be a planner. It’s in my nature to plan and organize.”
From Corporate Events to the Wedding of Your Dreams
In her early twenties, Annemarie realized her love of party planning. While working on the event committee at a large bank, she quickly realized her aptitude and passion for planning large corporate events.
Annemarie quickly branched out from company awards ceremonies and Christmas parties to start organizing birthday parties, showers, and charity fundraisers for friends and clients. But her favorite events were always weddings.
“I have been called a perfectionist,” Annemarie says, “But I don’t see that as a bad thing! Having someone like me planning your big day is a good thing.”
When it comes to choosing a wedding or event planner, personal connection is key.
Annemarie has a meticulous attention to detail and an acute sense of anticipation for her client’s needs. With so many wedding and event planners in San Diego to choose from, finding the right fit is so important. Annemarie is passionate about giving her clients the VIP treatment they deserve.
Themed parties are her specialty!
“From a Breakfast at Tiffany’s brunch, to a funky Gypsy birthday complete with psychics, making your party or event something to remember is my ultimate goal!”
Annemarie has been featured on The Knot, Wedding Wire, WedSmart, San Diego Style Weddings, and more.
