Testimonials

“Abby goes above and beyond! She thought of all the little things that we didn’t know we needed to think about to get us organized. The day of she never stopped moving. She was an amazing help at ever moment, always ready with a smile and a drink for the two of us.” – George T.

“Abby is AMAZING hands down. She’s crazy helpful, communicative, and detailed oriented. I was an out of state bride and would have probably lost my mind if A Pineapple Affair (APA) was not part of my day. My mom and I literally cannot imagine the day going nearly as well as it did. Abby worked well with out vendors before and during our wedding. I didn’t have to worry about a single thing. If you are hesitating DON’T having APA be part of your day will be the best decision you could make!!” – Elizabeth S.

“Abby was absolutely amazing! Not only was she affordable, but went above and beyond what was expected of her. She did an incredible job helping me plan and set up the day of. I could relax the day of knowing that Abby was there! I have recommended her to 2 other clients who are equally as happy with her! I can’t imagine my wedding without her. 100% recommend.” – Mandy A.

“Abby was and is the BEST! She was there helping every us every step of the way, answering questions and offering advice. She wasn’t pushy and took great care to listen to what we wanted or didn’t want. She eased our minds of worry and helped us feel less anxious about the entire process by meeting with us in person and talking on the phone. Our family really enjoyed working with Abby too, because she was there at rehearsal and did a fantastic job guiding everyone on where to go, the cues to follow, etc. She was there early to help with the decorating and the reception looked spectacular! I really could go on and on about how much I enjoyed working with her, she’s really the sweetest! Very organized and hard working, and bless her heart for her patience, haha. Thank you for making our special day spectacular!!” – Jeannette G.

I wish I could give Abby more than just 5 stars. She did an excellent job as our day-of coordinator! We had to move away from Charleston 5 months before our wedding so we planned everything way in advance and she helped us so much with last minute things as well. Abby has a wonderful attention to detail–I love how she offered suggestions on ways to make our wedding reception go more smoothly. She was super organized, too! She kept us on time at our reception even if it meant hopping on to the dance floor to get our attention! Abby has a wonderful spirit and a very caring soul. I wish I had another event to throw to work with her again!!! Definitely hire her to coordinate your wedding!” – Melissa Y.

“Abby goes above and beyond!!! From texting me about tiny details, to helping with every last detail of our day, no small task went unnoticed! She even came prepared with things we desperately needed and didn’t have (like tampons and anti-nausea mess). I can’t recommend her enough!” – Justine M.

We could not have hoped for more amazing support on our wedding day (and in the weeks leading up to it) than what Abby provided. She did an incredible job! Not only did we have a large wedding party but we had a lot of “extra” decor. She managed everyone with patience and grace, and executed every fine detail to perfection. In addition, her creative finishing touches were wonderful surprises! Having Abby there from start to finish was so incredibly supportive, both professionally and emotionally. We highly recommend her!” – Kristi N.

 “I can’t recommend Abby enough; she’s AMAZING!!! Abby went over and beyond just to make sure our wedding was nothing short of stress-free and perfect. She’s incredibly professional, detail-oriented, sweet, and everything you could want on your special day! When we left our reception, our conversation led to, “Abby’s an angel.” Thank you for everything!” – Kristine D.

Abby is awesome. Not only did she set everything up perfectly without us having to worry about a thing, she truly went above and beyond. We noticed little touches throughout the night that we hadn’t even instructed her to do. She truly made the day a breeze and was so pleasant (and patient) to work with! Highly recommend!” – Kim N.

Our daughters wedding was “a pineapple affair!” Abby was so calm and in control of every minute! I stress her demeanor as her gentle yet assertive approach was so reassuring that not only were we stress free of “details” but her creative touches were welcomed surprises! We highly recommend her!” – Tracy N., Mother of the Bride

“Abby was a literal life saver when it came to our wedding. Our day of coordinator canceled on us two weeks prior to our wedding day. Abby reached out to me immediately after I put in a request. We talked on the phone and right away I knew she was going to be very easy to work with. She met us at our venue hours later and had already printed out all of our wedding information that she had gotten off of our website (and brought us some brownies to welcome us😊). She stayed so calm and collected on our big day and never once tried to go against what I wanted or ever got bossy (as I’ve heard some planners can be). There were tremendous amounts of wind on our wedding day and our decor and place settings were flying everywhere!! But Abby made me feel as if everything was going to be perfect, I had no worries. She also gave us the cutest little gift; a monogrammed Christmas ornament filled with shavings of our invitation suite!! We love Abby and would recommended her again and again!” – Kayla B.

I DJ for Bunn Dj Company. I had the pleasure of working with Abby Parks of Pineapple Affair. She did an outstanding job of making the evening go off without a hitch. Someone got hurt during the reception and the paramedics had to be called. Abby remained calm dealt with the issue and handled it with little fanfare! Got the injured officiant out of the building and none of the guests missed a beat!! Abby also kept me informed as to where we were at in the timeline and got me everything I needed to be successful. Great Job Abby!!!! If you are needing a wedding planner who will assure your event stays on schedule and can deal wiith issues on the fly Abby Parks is your Planner! Professional Attentive and Easy to work with!” – Brian H., Bunn DJ Company

“Abby did our day of coordination for our wedding and did an amazing job. Even though I had personally done all of the pre planning, I really had no idea what to do on the big day. I walked through the main pieces of the day and Abby created a timeline for us to follow and then kept us all on task. She even made suggestions for special little extras that I wouldn’t have thought of. She really took a lot of stress out of my wedding day allowing my to enjoy the experience without worrying about when we need to move on to the next activity or when I needed to pay the vendors. I can’t recommend her enough!” – Lindsay P.

Abby Parks with a Pineapple Affair assisted me with directing a wedding that was on a boat in Charleston in October. Of course it rained hours prior to the wedding and we had to make some last minute changes. She was awesome!!! She came up with some clever solutions under pressure and helped me pull off the wedding with no signs of panic to our guests! She is good at what she does, professional, yet fun to work with!” – Noelle B.

“I have worked with Abby over the last 6 years with a number of events. We meet prior to the event several times going over time lines of the evening, décor and everything involved with the event. Abby is constantly on top of things and if I needed a question answered, it was answered quickly. After being involved with over 500 events all around the southeast, I always look forward to working with Abby.

She has an uncanny ability to anticipate needs, developed from years of event experience. Your guests will never guess what’s happening behind the scenes as Abby calmly makes everything come together with a smile. With her experience and humor, you’ll immediately be at ease and realize that the only thing left for you to do is go enjoy your event.” – Kelly W.
