I am sincerely grateful for the work Abbie, Mikayla, and the rest of their team did in order to support our wedding weekend. Even with COVID and crazy, windy weather, they pulled a beautiful day together. They helped the day run so smoothly and...
went out of their way to make things work out like helping with our Zoom stream and even doing my hair after COVID prevented the stylist from coming to the wedding.
When I think of ACH Events, I think of how lovely it was to work through and dream a new dream for our wedding. Being queer, weddings are extremely layered and challenging, but Abbie and Mikayla worked tirelessly to be innovative and help us create special memories from our wedding day.

e whole process (2 years in the making - Covid bride/groom over here). I can't say enough good things about Melissa, she's responsive, compassionate, and was super helpful especially during such a difficult time to plan a wedding. She really saw what we were wanting out of our wedding and made it happen! Abbie did our florals and they were better than I could've imagined! Her choice in textures of dried and live florals as well as the colors were the exact vibe I was going for. I also have to give a shoutout to Mikayla because she was a huge help on the day of as well! Seriously got the best team for our big day and we were shocked at how beautiful and perfect our wedding day was. Extra grateful to have found these lovely ladies!

ns were all amazing…literally every single one of them!! Not only did she help with the timeline, logistics, and ideas, but we also hired her to do our flowers! I was truly blown away with her floral creations. Hiring her saved us a ton of time, money, and stress. I would hire ACH Events 10x over! Everyone at our wedding was very impressed with her and her two assistants, Hannah, and Mikayla. She is the one who gave us the names of our caterers, cake bakery, DJ, Live entertainment, and more—each of which were complimented repeatedly. I can’t believe how wonderful our wedding day was. It was a dream come true! Hire ACH events, and I promise you yours will be just as magical. Abbie is a rock star!!

Abbie was absolutely AMAZING, and I would highly recommend her to everyone! We were originally supposed to get married in March 2020, and Melissa from ACH was our original planner (she is also just as incredible!) We had to reschedule twice due...
to COVID, and when Melissa was no longer available for our new date, Abbie stepped in and took care of everything. She literally thinks of everything - what questions to ask different vendors, what you need to bring the day of, all kinds of small logistical things we would’ve never thought of, etc. She handled a couple of issues that we had with vendors with ease and was so helpful and informative. She even stepped in and helped us with an issue we were having with our rehearsal dinner, which she didn’t have to do at all.
The day of our wedding went perfectly and so seamlessly because Abbie coordinated everything so well. She even carried my lipstick around with her so I could touch up between family photos! At the end of the night, she took care of absolutely everything and made sure all of our gifts, leftover alcohol, decorations, etc. were put into the cars they were supposed to and made sure my husband’s suit jacket made it home with a family member after he forgot it.
All in all, I would highly recommend Abbie or any of the ACH planners to anyone! They are so well organized, efficient, and helpful - and to top it off, they are all so warm and friendly. It was honestly the best choice we made when picking our vendors, and I can’t imagine how hectic things would have been without her. It’s been 3 weeks since our wedding, and we still talk about how much of a lifesaver she was for our big day! If you want to not stress about a single thing on your wedding day, ACH is definitely the best choice.

Abbie is a genuine rockstar and I do not know how I would have made it through the wedding planning process without her! From start to finish, she was there to answer all of my questions, offer advice, read through contracts, coordinate with ve...
ndors and so on. Her profound knowledge of the industry is invaluable and you will want her in your corner. Let me tell you, she has your back no matter what and she will do whatever it takes! It is also worth mentioning that COVID hit in the middle of our planning process and Abbie was there every step of the way to help us navigate through the craziness, giving us consistent industry updates and even hosted group zoom calls with her brides to answer our questions. A true pro, especially when faced with so much uncertainty. Because of her I was so at ease and relaxed on my wedding day (and the days leading up to it) because I knew she had everything under control. And it was the most perfect day thanks to her! I was so grateful to have Abbie by my side through this process and cannot recommend her enough!

Abbie was always available for little questions and was super helpful in finding vendors and providing tips/advice.

If you need someone supportive, dependable, hard-working, and organized, Abbie is the coordinator for you!

Abbie was a huge help when it came to working with our vendors to postpone and I can honestly say if it weren’t for her it would not have worked out even half as good as it did.

In general, I am a planner and wouldn’t have hired someone if my venue hadn’t required it, but I am SO glad that they did. Abbie’s expertise and knowledge of the wedding industry was something that was so valuable to us and saved me so much time and frustration.

When I walked into the venue the day of my party, I started crying happy tears, because the decorations and aesthetic Abbie and my mom put together were so spot on. Guests at my party actually came up to me and said “if you were a wedding venue, this would be you”- that’s how perfectly Abbie was able to put everything together. We also had a few “unruly” guests and family drama, and Abbie was able to handle each situation with ease and class. As the bride, I was able to still have fun and not give a care to those situations, because Abbie just made sure everything went on seamlessly.
I can’t speak highly enough of Abbie. She helped make my special day everything I had envisioned since I was a little girl.

, take care of, and manage – all without me having to worry. Any bride who is drawing near to their wedding date knows how absolutely sick you get of making decisions. The last few days leading up to it, I was to the point where I just wanted other people to make decisions about the little things – I was tired of it. Abbie completely understood where I was coming from and took what I envisioned for my wedding and made it 10,000 times better. She seemed to be everywhere at once and thought of things that never would have crossed my mind. I looked around, and things just happened to “magically” be DONE – everything from making sure candles were lit, to gathering up phones/chargers/overnight bags and loading it all in the getaway car so we didn’t have to worry about a thing. Her organization and communication skills are something to be admired. She has the greatest easy-going personality which made it so easy for me to just relax and enjoy the day. She also deserves a HUGE reward for controlling my husband’s eight (yes EIGHT) groomsmen and getting them to the right places at the right times. It takes the patience of a saint to accomplish something like that with a group of guys who are all jokesters. I could go on for days about all of the things that she did to make our wedding day absolutely perfect but, in a nutshell, hiring Abbie was by far the best decision I made during our wedding planning process.
