Highly recommended

If you're after a caring, super-organized planner, Abbi's your pick.
Abbi's professionalism from the first meeting to the end was spot-on. No stress, just a smooth process.
Just let her know your vision and budget. She's got a knack for turning your ideas into reality.
Our wedding day was exactly what we envisioned. She understands your style, gives solid suggestions (with endless resources that can help you save money), and handles everything smoothly.
Looking back, Abbi's not just a planner; she's like part of the crew now. We're even thinking of hiring her for future family events.
In short, if you snag Abbi and her squad, you're winning. Hiring her was THE best move, and we're forever grateful for the dream wedding. Abbi, thanks for the top-notch service. 👍💍

Down the aisle yyc is incredible!

Abbi was an amazing support throughout the wedding planning process. We went with her signature package which came with design, timeline, decor, and day of coordination which perfectly met our needs. She even helped with putting together florals and picking up printing for the wedding! She has such an eye for event design and decor, so our wedding looked amazing! Abbi was also very communicative in emailing follow up notes, responding to texts, and we could always trust her to follow through. She is super proactive and will get things done before we even think about needing to complete a task. We owe her the success and ease of the wedding and the planning process, as without her, we could not have made it happen. It was amazing to be able to arrive to the event, truly enjoy and immerse ourselves in it, then leave without having to worry about packing or cleaning up. We wholeheartedly recommend Abbi to anyone planning a wedding!

Abbi: The best coordinator you could ask for!!

I don’t think I could summarize in words just how much Abbi did for my husband and I leading up to and on our wedding day. When I booked her, I was looking for someone to help make things run as smooth as possible at our ceremony & reception. And wow, we’re my expectations exceeded. Not only is Abbi the sweetest person and so supportive to the wedding vision, she also comes with a MASSIVE showroom of decor that can be used as part of your coordination booking with her. She has so many options for different aesthetics and using my Pinterest and personal meetings, she brought my wedding dreams to life. She also has a fantastic decorator who came with her the day before for event set up & who was there helping the day of as well. Going through Abbi was beyond worth it, because almost all of the decor I needed was already included through her. Such as, my centrepieces, wedding arch with florals, bud vases, decorative florals, podiums, Charger plates, dessert table decor, etc. The list goes on!! If you are looking for most amazing coordinator for your wedding, you’ve found it in Abbi!! 🤍

Best Day Ever!!

Hiring Abbi as our day-of coordinator was the best decision we made in our entire wedding planning process!! Not only is she one of the nicest humans alive, but she is FANTASTIC at what she does.

The main reason we hired Abbi was for her setup/teardown option. I had a vision of how I wanted our reception to look and she knocked it out of the park. She has a beautiful inventory of decor that was included in our package, which was awesome because it was one less vendor to deal with. When it came to teardown, all we did at the end of the night was… leave. It was that easy!

Abbi met with my husband and I a few times leading up to the wedding. She listened to how we wanted the day to go and gave us a list of things we needed to do to get there. She went above and beyond to make sure our entire wedding party knew exactly what to do and where to stand throughout the day. She also kept everything on time… which I’ve been told is unheard of!!

When people ask me if anything went wrong on the day of our wedding, I can honestly say, “Not a thing. It was the best day of my life”… and we owe it all to Abbi.

Best decision ever!

I hired Abbi early on in the wedding planning stage and am so glad I did. She is hands down the most amazing wedding coordinator out there! She is highly experienced and professional plus one of the nicest people you could ever meet! She helped me so much in the planning stages and was so helpful and responsive to any questions I had. She and her team made our day go seamlessly and she executed everything perfectly. The reception and ceremony spaces were set up to perfection and all our guests commented on how beautiful everything looked. This was the best money spent on our wedding and I would highly recommend hiring Abbi for your wedding, you will not be disappointed! I couldn't have imagined not hiring a coordinator, it took so much of the stress and pressure off so we could enjoy our day.

Abbi was beyond amazing. She was organized and on top of everything from the time we booked with her. Day of we ran a bit late and she made sure everything ran smoothly regardless. As the end of the night approached, her and her team made sure decorations were cleaned up so we had nothing to worry about. I couldn’t have done it without her!! Thank you Abbi!

Highly Recommend!

We had an amazing experience working with Abbi of Down the Aisle YYC. We used her as our Day of Coordinator, but she went way above and beyond for the year leading up to our wedding as well! On the wedding day, Kathleen and Abbi set up everything beautifully and made sure that we were able to enjoy our day. Our family is still raving about how impressed they were and how much they also enjoyed being able to sit back and enjoy the day because of all of Abbi and Kathleen's hard work.

Great Experience!!

Abbi from Down the Aisle YYC was amazing to work with! I originally was going to try and have family/friends set-up and take down the wedding however quite last minute I changed my mind and wanted to use a day of coordinator for set-up and take down services only. I found Down the Aisle YYC on Wedding Wire. Abbi was very prompt with communication and quick to meet up to ensure she developed that rapport and to understand my needs, wants, vision, etc. Down the Aisle YYC pricing for these services were also very reasonable and worth every cent!! Abbi made an effort to really understand my vision for they day of. She was easily reachable when I had questions and/or needed to change/modify my plans. Abbi took so much stress off me on the day of and was able to use her knowledge and experience of wedding decor set-up to make any changes or modifications on the day of, as needed, while still keeping my vision at the forefront! She was also very collaborative with all the other vendors involved with the day of. Abbi is pleasant, professional, detail oriented and easy to talk to and she was a pleasure to work with on my special day! I highly recommend Down the Aisle YYC! Thanks again Abbi/Down the Aisle YYC!!

Customer Service Example

Abbi is hands down one of the most absolute and genuine human beings I've had the pleasure of meeting. We got engaged in 2020 and our wedding was May 7, 2022 and our contract was for Day of Coordinator....Abbi was with me answering any and all questions from January 2021. She went above and beyond "day of" and on the day it went so smoothly we were actually ahead on our schedule by a good solid 45 minutes. She rolled with the punches (I have a VERY opinionated family) and made it so much less stressful for me. Her decorations brought my vision to life with all the beautiful greenery and the alter......I could go on and on about Abbi and her team, but essentially, hire her. You will not regret it!!!!

Hi! My name is Abbi and it is truly a pleasure to meet you!

A bit about me. I have been event planning for a better part of a decade both on the corporate scene and privately within my own circles. This past year was a big one for me as I finally got up the courage to take my work to the next level and after months of planning & endless vision sessions, officially launched Down the Aisle YYC here in Calgary, AB.

I grew up in the hospitality industry working nearly every position from server, to bartender, to trainer to lounge manager and then one day an incredible opportunity came my way that I just had to go for. One of my regulars offered me a position as their Director of Culture & Community for a private charter airline & helicopter group, and that was that, I ran away with the airlines.

Ever since joining their ranks I have been busy planning all sorts of dynamic and interesting events - charity galas, award ceremonies, corporate retreats, fleet unveilings plus of course a handful of executive charters & client appreciation events on our corporate jets. It has been an incredible experience and there really is nothing like the smell of jet fuel in the morning but as we all know, this game of life is about living and growing and experiencing new journeys...and so Down the Aisle YYC was born and here I am now chatting with you.

On a personal side, I have 3 Big Loves. The Husband. The Hounds and The Travel + A passion for Work, Life, Love and everything in between. I have backpacked through 34 countries, sleeping in caves with Bedouins, cage diving with great whites, hiking the top of the world and have eaten a lot of weird stuff along the way. My next big adventure is Down the Aisle YYC and exploring unique, creative and above all effective ways to ensure you enjoy each and every moment of your Wedding Day.

So that is a bit about me. I can't wait to learn more about you.

PS. My Patronus is a Wolf and my Disney Princess is definitely Belle.
