  • If I could give Anthony and his team all of the stars in the sky, I would. He really made sure our wedding went off without a hitch, and this was during COVID, so not only did he help me plan 1 wedding, he helped me plan 2. He was there during the bookings, the rebooking, the tears, the breakdowns, late night quick emails that crossed my mind, everything. I also valued that he put clear boundaries on his time. Most times he emailed back earlier, but I never felt like I was waiting for him to email me back or that he was not respecting his own time. On the day, he had staff at the wedding hotel and on site helping with every single detail. His staff did everything from set up my cell phone for live streaming the ceremony, to taking my dog out to potty before loading onto the bus, to handling her for me before she ran down the aisle, to running to get ice water for me during portraits, to reseating guests due to an unexpected guest arriving, and tearing everything down and loading it i...

  • Anthony & crew did such an amazing job coordinating and helping to plan our wedding day. Given we had an August wedding mid-pandemic, there were lots of last minute changes and Anthony helped to navigate all of them. On our wedding day, we knew everything would be taken care of as he had reached out to every vendor and was the point-of-contact for everything. They even made sure my favorite cold drink was in my hand at all times :) Our reception was such a success because of them - THANK YOU!

  • I can’t say enough about having Anthony as our day of coordinator! He was absolutely outstanding and went above and beyond to make our day perfect. We met with him months in advance and he did so much more than just the day of coordination. He helped me find the best vendors, created our entire timeline, coordinated our deliveries all day and made sure our first look went perfect without any hiccups! He even met us for our first look to help put boutonnieres on the wedding party. He made sure I had a full drink all night and catered to all of our guests. He set everything up so perfectly so that none of our guests were waiting in long lines for food or drinks. Most importantly he made planning and coordinating a wedding fun. He has a great personality and focuses on what’s important. Weddings are stressful and he made it as carefree as possible. He is so talented and experienced in the wedding industry and always gave me great advice and ideas. I couldn’t have asked for anything ... Read more

  • Thanks to the professionalism, attention to detail, knowledge of vendors & of the wedding industry, Anthony & his staff made sure that my daughter had a fabulous wedding & reception! Anthony’s timeline was invaluable along with all of his current ideas made helping my daughter, who lives out of state, plan & execute the perfect wedding! There was no question or concern that Anthony could not address and alleviate any stress that we had about any wedding issue! The day was flawless! Out of Box Produxtions was the best investment that we made for the wedding!

  • Our wedding day was so fabulous! And we owe it all to Out of Box Productions (and our parents). We honestly couldn’t have done it without them! Anthony was more than just a day-of-coordinator. He exceeded all expectations we had. He has tons of industry experience and provided us with several recommendations/suggestions (when prompted). Additionally, his wonderful assistant, Sarah, went above and beyond her call of duty the day of the wedding. From fixing bridesmaid’s shoes that broke… to making sure the bride and groom ate dinner, she stepped in to assist even though it wasn’t part of her job description. Their goal was making sure our day was perfect and it truly was! We’ve received countless compliments on how amazing our wedding was! From the bottom of our hearts, we can’t thank Anthony and Out of Box Productions enough for making our special day THE best day of out lives!

  • Calling this a vendor review simply isn’t accurate. Anthony Marinaro is so much more than a vendor, he is a partner. He was as vested in making my son and daughter-in-law’s wedding their dream wedding as we were. Anthony provided us with sage advice that only comes with experience. He was a great listener and just “got us”. I am sure he had other weddings he was working on, but we felt like we were his only client. Responsiveness is really important to me and Anthony was the best. He would answer emails on weekends and when he was on vacation! He told us there would be things that go wrong on the wedding day, but it was his job to make sure we didn’t know about it. He certainly followed through on that. Whether it was deciding on rentals or meeting with vendors, Anthony was right by our side. He advised, but didn’t push. He just wanted us to see all sides of our decisions. I simply can’t say enough good things about our experience. We could not have... Read more

  • Not only was this venue absolutely perfect, but Anthony made everything about our wedding day the greatest day of my husband and I's life. We were constantly well cared for, Anthony and Saley basically planned and walked us through all the decor, and the only regret I have is that I didn't hire Anthony to plan the entire day. The venue accommodated our 200 guests wonderfully and is located right in the middle of The East Village, with plenty of parking and hotels in the area with lots to do for all your guests. I truly cannot say enough about how grateful I am that we had the chance to work with Anthony and Saley, and to have our reception at The Conservatory. :)

  • Our experience in working with Out of Box Productions was nothing less than fantastic! Anthony and Saley were wonderful to partner with from start to finish. They value and appreciate our vision, knew exactly what we wanted, and ran with it. Anthony was very prompt in responding to all of our questions and needs (and I had a lot of them) and Saley went above and beyond to ensure our day was perfect. They truly exceeded our expectations and we highly recommend them for any event planning! We wouldn’t have been able to do it without them and we owe it all to Out of Box Productions.
