“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.

“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 the best. She helped us plan our wedding from 10,000 miles away and everything went off without a hitch. She has an amazing eye for detail and, most importantly, is a wonderful listener. I really felt I could trust her to execute my dream day and she did not disappoint. Her warm and calming presence was a godsend during what could have been a very hectic time. Instead it was all magic. 100% would recommend Purple Summer to anyone planning an event in Colorado!

Abbey Hoefling and Purple Summer Events gets an A++! Abbey impressed me with her ability to connect with my daughter and our family in a professional, yet warm and fun way. She’s incredibly organized, efficient, and detailed. She guided us all through the planning process and always knew what the next steps should be. She provided us with a detailed timeline we were to accomplish, and we never felt rushed to make decisions. She’s calming, genuine and so knowledgeable. Abbey helped make the wedding exactly as our bride envisioned it. I’m so grateful for everything she did and would highly recommend Abbey without hesitation.

Abbey and Purple Summer Events were absolutely instrumental in helping us turn our wedding day into something incredibly personal, massively fun, and truly magical! From our 10-month planning process to the day of our wedding (and beyond), every little detail was well thought through, and implemented perfectly. Abbey made us feel like royalty, took the stress on herself when needed (while still having a calming presence), made sure every detail was in place, and always had a smile on her face. Her monthly checklists kept us on schedule, ensuring we had all of the important (and fun) aspects of our planning set, and keeping them from becoming stresses later on. Even our friends and family noticed her A+ work before and during the wedding, seeing it all come to life. That’s a true testament to her hard work and character. We highly recommend Purple Summer Events to anyone getting married – having her guide you through the most wonderful time of your life is absolutely worth it. It’s impossible to overstate how much we appreciated having Abbey and Purple Summer Events by our side as we started our greatest adventure yet. From the bottom of our hearts – Thank you, Abbey!

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!
