Andrea and her team at Events by Abel are AMAZING!!!! From our very first conversation I knew Andrea was the right day of coordinator for us. She was friendly, kind, and so so organized. She was helpful and supportive months leading up to our big day. She helped us find vendors we still needed, and helped us come up with organizational ideas to help our day run smoothly. My husband is an Aussie, and weddings are a bit different there, so Andrea helped us make the perfect timeline to fit all of our international needs. A few days before our wedding an emergency happened and our videographer had to head out of state. Andrea helped us navigate through that and continued to keep me calm and reassured me it would all be okay. Then on our wedding day our DJ was running late, but I had no clue. Andrea and her team were able to play our ceremony and cocktail hour music, and shielded me from the stress and worry until all was worked out. Andrea and her team busted their butts to make sure my wedding ran smoothly and they shielded me for knowing about the snafus that were happening. My wedding would have been a disaster without Andrea, and I am forever grateful. If I had to plan a wedding again, I would hire Andrea every time!

Andrea was absolutely amazing to work with. She was organized every step of the way, didn't miss any details and even though she was my day of coordinator - she didn't leave me hanging throughout my planning process! On the big day - she was so relaxed and on top of every detail. Even my wedding party was super impressed. They kept asking where I found her! It was the perfect choice having her be in charge of our big day. We were able to count on her 1000%! I could not have done it without her!!

I adored working with Andrea! She was wonderful and helpful throughout the entire planning process, helping us budget and giving us lots of suggestions for professional and affordable vendors, and she had anything a bride could have needed day-of. I would absolutely recommend having her help plan or coordinate your wedding!

Andrea was amazing and easy to work with. We had her as a same day wedding coordinator and were able to trust her with putting everything together for us on our big day so that all we had to do was enjoy ourselves. She really came through and we received many compliments with how smooth the whole day went. We also had free access to her inventory which was a great stress reliever. Highly recommend her!

She and her team went above and beyond to make my wedding day absolutely perfect and even more than what I had imagined. She was always so composed, sweet, and professional through this whole process leading up and on my wedding day. I would recommend her services to EVERYONE seeking to hire a trusting and a rockstar of a coordinator! Andrea - Thank you again for all your help! You were a dream to work with! <3

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    All of our quotes can be customized. Please contact us for a custom quote.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Our first step is a conversation about you and your fiancé's love story, your vision for your event, and your planning thus far. This typically takes an hour and can be done in-person, over the phone, or virtually. My approach to wedding coordination is to develop a clear sense of your vision and priorities as a couple so that I can handle all of the “day-of” issues that may arise and help you pull off your dream event!

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I'm a certified Wedding Planner and Event Planner and a member of Wedding International Professionals Association. I have an M.S. from Northwestern University, where I went on to work in Special Events for 8 years before ultimately starting my own company. I am also ordained through the Universal Life Church.
