    Outstanding!!

    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!!!!

    AMAZING Wedding Planning Team!

    Abbi and her team are absolutely AMAZING. We had them on board for our Day of Coordination, and also used some of their rentals. Abbi and Kathleen met with us early on in the process (much earlier than the month in our contract) to help us ensure we were on the right track, answered little questions we had along the way, and overall were phenomenal! We met with them a few weeks before the wedding to run through everything since almost everything was finalized, and they put our minds at ease! On the day of the rehearsal and the wedding day, they completely took the reins and I was fully able to enjoy my wedding day, knowing they had it under control! Our wedding was absolutely perfect and Abbi and her team were a HUGE part of that!! I couldn’t recommend them more for your wedding needs!

    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!

    Down The Aisle YYC's reply:

    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.

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.
