Meet Abbie

Owner + Senior Planner & Designer

Hey guys! I am Abbie and I am the founder and owner of ACH Events. I am so thankful you have made it to this page to get to know our team. We are a unique team of amazing women that love helping people marry the love of their life. 

 

If you haven't met me yet, you should know that the first time you meet me, it will start and finish with a hug. You should also know that I love queso and pizza, Shania Twain mixed with some Adele, traveling, and being outside on a beautiful day. I get my entrepreneurial spirit from my grandmother who operated her own catering company for years before shifting gears to selling and designing high-end clothing. I am best at doing what I love the most - planning dream weddings, leading a successful team, and raising the bar in the wedding industry.

 

Planning and designing weddings is a huge passion of mine and I believe there is nothing better than watching my client’s dreams come true right as they are about to walk down the aisle! I love sharing my knowledge on how to stay on track with a budget, and help each client find unique details to make their day or event special.  I love all things events, but weddings hold a special place in my heart. Life is all about family and love and that starts with marriage. Watching two lives become one is the start to an incredible journey, one that I absolutely love being a part of.

I am a wife to an incredible man I am fortunate enough to call my husband, and a mother to the sweetest little boy, Kieran. I am a dog-mom to an adorable mutt and a sister to four irreplaceable brothers. My family is definitely the reason I am so excited for clients to get married. My goal is that each client gets to experience the same love and joy from starting and growing a family that I have.

Meet Mikayla

Mikayla recently returned to her home state of Texas after living and working in the hospitality industry in The Big Apple for almost two years. Before moving to NYC, she attended Texas State University and worked in and around the Austin area, so she’s super familiar with the area and all the fun places Austin has to offer! Let's just say Mikayla keeps our team hip and young.

Mikayla is the type of gal who makes things happen. You want or need it, she's got you. It is a joy and passion of hers to make people happy! And because she believes that the little things matter just as much as the big things do, she’ll make sure you check every box on your list and that you do so with a smile on your face. Mikayla has incredible customer service and she loves creating a bond that is more than just a client/professional relationship. If you are lucky enough to have Mikayla as your wedding planner, you will probably find yourself planning while grabbing dinner or drinks and feel like you have your best friend right beside you before you walk down the aisle. She is your wedding best friend!

Let's all give it up for Morgan!
