    Great website and invitations

    I loved working with this company. They were prompt and wanted to know our interest. We met in person and sent different images and ideas. Attention to detail was terrific and invitations used our theme and colours ( blush, green, gold) and save the dates used our engagement pictures which were beautifully showcased. They have great ideas and are able to show you different avenues you may not of though of previous! My fiance and I were both thrilled with this service.

    Such a great experience working with Abbi

    We hired Abbi as our wedding coordinator very last minute and we wish we had hired her sooner! I could not say enough good things about her. She was super helpful, always replied quickly, gave great input and provided insight on things we would have never thought of. On our wedding day, she took care of so many things to ensure we had a stress-free day. She was so well organized, and super fun to work with. Would highly recommend her for your wedding day!

    You guys make me blush, thank you so much for the kind words and taking the time to write the review. It was an honour and a pleasure to be a part of your day ... and wow Anna did you ever look beautiful.

    May Wedding

    My Husband and recently got married. We hired Abbi and Kathleen to bring our vision to life. Getting married during the pandemic brought challenges and changes almost daily at times. Our original plan had changed so many times we didn't even know what to do. Abbi was so full of ideas and ways to make our day special. She was so professional and was worth every cent. We loved how our day came together, largely impart because of her expertise. Kathleen was such a great help for the technical side of things. We would have been lost without her. Our zoom wedding went off without a hitch. We are so happy with everything and would definitely recommend down the aisle

    Blew expectations out of the water!

    I genuinely cannot say enough good things about Down the Aisle YYC! My partner and I decided to do a backyard COVID wedding in a tent and the whole 9 yards - which meant a lot of set up work for us. We booked our coordinators for a half day and they absolutely went above and beyond for us. Abbi and Kathleen were out to the venue the day before our event helping with our table configuration, and décor set up. On the day of our wedding they came to pick-up flowers, cake, and last minute décor that had been forgotten, and by the time we got to the venue my vision had come to life and I was absolutely BLOWN AWAY.

    Abbi and Kathleen coordinated with all of our vendors, set up our décor, as well as acted as guest liaison while we were taking photos, then handed over to our MC's before leaving.

    The last thing I wanted for the morning of my reception was to be worried about little details and to be on the phone all morning with vendors. I am happy to say that I did not worry about anything with these ladies in charge. Thank you!!

Meet the Team

Abbi Brinkhaus
Abbi Brinkhaus
Lead Planner & Owner

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.
