“Words cannot describe what a dream Abbey and Purple Summer Events were to work with!  Abbey is SO organized and timely and just an overall PERFECT planner!  Her taste is impeccable and I trusted her 100% to make decisions on my behalf.  I am truly blown away by how amazing our wedding was, all thanks to Abbey.  She is truly the best at what she does and I cannot recommend her enough.”

OMG. Abbey was a lifesaver! I truly believe that the only reason our day went off without a hitch is because of Abbey. If I was anxious or worried that I forgot something, Abbey was already three steps ahead of me. She is organized, professional, creative and tons of fun! If I had to do over again, I wouldn’t change a thing.

Rushgettingready-126“From the moment I got engaged until the day I left for my wedding Abbey was a Godsend! She asks thoughtful questions to get you to think about what is important to you and your groom and helps you create a wedding day that reflects individual style.  A lot of weddings tend to be generic and showy instead of a testament to who you are as a couple and what you want your marriage to be like.  Abbey is creative and gets you to think outside of the box to make your day special.  On top of that she is able to calm your nerves, get you excited, and most importantly get you organized!

I would recommend that any bride that needs any level of assistance with their big day contacts Abbey to help them with anything from the flowers, the planning, the invites, the vibe, the music, the day-of timeline, etc.  Or even to deal with stressful situations that may come up, like picking bridesmaids or having to make last minute changes to your seating chart.  Abbey is truly a professional; she is detail-oriented, reliable, and most of all fun and easy to work with!  Give her a call immediately.”

Abbey is amazing to work with! We had her as our day of coordinator/help with design. She was very patient with my many questions about design ideas…even when my vision changed…and really helped me to nail down what I wanted.  She definitely helped validate my design choices during planning, and helped me stay on track with all the details that go into planning/vendors etc.  Abbey is organized, helpful, patient, relaxed, and just a NICE person!  She and her team made our wedding day a breeze.  She was on top of everything on wedding day and made sure our reception looked/felt like a dream. We couldn’t be happier with our experience working with Abbey!  Thank you so much for everything–the day was perfect!

WOW! Abbey is the one you want. Hands down. We had a complicated, unique wedding with many moving parts.  Her knowledge about local vendors – especially outfits, flowers, and little details, was so very helpful.  We couldn’t have asked for a more genuine, helpful, fantastic wedding planner.  From the first meetings, over multiple cups of coffee, to the day itself– Abbey helped us create the wedding of our dreams.  Her communication skills, patience, and attention to design, both in details and the big picture, are hard to find in one individual.  Thanks Abbey, for everything, and if you are considering Purple Summer Events for your wedding, please think no more! Contact this fabulous lady and her team immediately.

We hired Abbey for our July wedding and it was one of the best decisions we made!  Honestly, she should have been the first person we called. Abbey was knowledgeable, creative, supportive and extremely professional while being so easy-going and warm.  She understood who we were and encouraged us to focus on just being us in the planning process.  Our wedding day went so smoothly and we felt COMPLETELY relaxed with Abbey in charge. We can’t thank you enough!!

We were overall skeptical of having a wedding planner and were only convinced by our sisters that we at least needed a day-of coordinator so we could relax and enjoy the day…little did we know that Abbey would absolutely make our day possible and perfect! She seamlessly took over all of our vendor contracts and communications leading up to the day, gave advice on decisions and the flow of the day, and helped us craft our ideal timeline with all the little moments accounted for. When slight mayhem occurred with our DIY table assignments, Abbey spent an hour meticulously fixing each one and arranging them perfectly. It was truly above and beyond. And that doesn’t even account for helping us save all of our wedding flowers and managing a huge family with 4 sets of parents. Her calm, happy, and genuine communication made it such a delight to work with Abbey. We cannot thank you enough, Abbey!

My wife and I worked with Abbey recently for our wedding. From the first time that we spoke with her, we knew that Abbey was special.  She just gets it.  She had answers to all of our questions, was totally on the ball about everything, and made us feel relaxed and comfortable throughout our wedding weekend.  She is an absolute pleasure to work with in every way.  We used one of her assistants as well who was also fabulous.  I can’t say enough great things about Purple Summer Events.  Abbey took so much stress out of planning our wedding and allowed us to enjoy our wedding weekend.  She took care of everything!  She’s the very best.  I highly recommend Abbey and PSE!

“At our very first consultation meeting Abbey said, ‘How do you want your guests to feel at your wedding?  Write down 3 adjectives.  Those will be your guide as you make all your decisions.’  And that was the most brilliant guidance she could have provided to make the rest of the planning focused and aligned!  From that point on, Abbey was organized, chill, and I trusted her 200 percent.  With 2 weeks left to go before the wedding I was happily telling my vendors, mother, and family members ‘meet Abbey, she’s you’re go-to person.  Talk to Abbey.  Abbey will take care of it.  Abbey knows the plan.’  She will make your wedding or event totally seamless, delightful, and executed with professionalism!”
