Fall in love with your wedding...with Events by Allie

At Events by Allie, I believe that your event should be an expression of you. That’s why I take the time to get to know you and come up with a theme that reflects your personality. I’ll make what inspires you, and the things that you love the essence of your wedding.

With your ideas . . . and my creativity . . . we can work together and create the perfect wedding for YOU. Whether you are looking for day of coordination, wedding styling, or a full blown planning package, I can work with any budget to create your beautiful event!

Organized. Dedicated. Insightful. Three words that describe my personality as well as the service that I strive to deliver while planning your event. Growing up I have always had a niche for designing, organizing and facilitating events. Although novice to the professional industry, I have planned and coordinated events for family and friends for years. I fell in love with the feelings of creativity, accomplishment, and joy I felt when I planned my own wedding almost 6 years ago. Wedding & Event Planning by Allison brings a fresh and modern approach to designing, planning and coordinating events of all sizes and styles.

I graduated College with my Associates of Arts and I am a certified Wedding and Event Planner from the QC school of Event and Wedding Planning. I love planning and hosting theme parties for large numbers of people. I think that the key to a successful event is in the planning. By working from home and the internet, I believe I can turn a vision into reality for any client desiring a stress-free event for themselves and their guests.

Testimonials

"Allison was absolutely amazing. She coordinated my wedding at Che'ne Rouge. She delt with my excessively large family and made sure that everything ran smoothly and we had our perfect day. She was always checking on me and there right when I would need her. She is such a joy to work with and I would definitely recommend her to everyone."

Jessica

"I used Allie to coordinate my backyard wedding. I couldn't have done it without her! She was very professional and easy to work with. She made sure every detail was taken care of so that I could enjoy my special day. I highly recommend her!!"

Kathy Story

"Allison was my day-of wedding coordinator for my October 19, 2013 wedding, and I have to say that without her help, our wedding wouldn't have gone as smoothly as it did. If you are looking for a wedding coordinator, Allison is your girl. She did everything from telling my husband and I were to be at the venue, telling my family where to put decorations, helping the ring bearer and flower girl get down the isle, and so much more! I had only met her once before the wedding, which was at the rehearsal, and I'm amazed how attentive and responsive she was to what my husband and I wanted to happen during the ceremony and reception. She did everything I asked, and then some! After the wedding, my husband and I were talking about how we felt as if we had known Allison our whole lives, even though we had only met her twice. She is so personable, she even jumped in to help fix my hair when it started falling out! Overall, she is a wonderful person and wedding coordinator, and I would definitely recommend her to anyone!"
