High school pals Jennifer Schwartz and Andi Dyal lost touch after graduation, then reconnected after college when both turned up to work on an event for their respective companies at the Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables. They agreed that south Florida would benefit from a marriage of their talents; hence, Anje Soirees was born. "We can be involved as little or as much in the process as the client wants," Dyal says. "But we enjoy full production coordination so that we can ensure the client receives the best service from the vendors we recommend." Those vendors are all inclusive, from photographers, florists and invitation engravers to décor designers and entertainment, but all proposals are custom-tailored to the client's specifications.

Seasons Change: Anje averages two events per month, with more during season and fewer during the summer.

Book 'Em: "Our price is the same whether it's for a $50,000 wedding or a $500,000 wedding."

Shifting Gears: "We had a 100-person wedding at a private home and the valet company didn't show up. So we made valet tickets out of paper and the caterer, who had a staff member that once worked for a valet company, greeted the guests, gave them their tickets and had that member of the catering team park their cars in the designated area. The guests never knew it was going on and in fact praised the efficiency of the valet company."

Price Range: $2,500 to $15,000
