Kind Words

Allison, this is a time when thank you seems insufficient. But thank you. Thank you for always being there for us. From the beginning of planning to the very end, you were always there to guide us along the way. Your genuine passion and care for making our wedding day the best day possible was immediately obvious.

You were patient and encouraging throughout the entire planning process. Nothing was too much trouble, no requests too insane, and you truly understood the vision we had for our wedding. You always kept me up-to-date with the next items i needed to check off the list. You ensured all of our vendors were informed and prepared. You calmly and professionally put out the flames when we found out the venue made some "organizational" changes. HaHa. I can not thank you enough for the phone calls, emails, and texts over the months during the pre-planning. You took all of the stress and worry away to ensure Ryan and I could enjoy our day as much as possible.

On our wedding day, your calm and reassuring presence meant it was stress free for us and our families. You made sure we remained on schedule, and that i ate throughout the day. haha The ceremony and reception design was absolutely breathtaking. You brought our vision to life and I do honestly believe that without your guidance and professional approach we wouldn't have experienced such a memorable occasion to the level you were able to create for us.

It was amazing to just be able to enjoy the day and not have to worry about a thing! You took ownership of decorating our venue and made sure that I was at ease. And Kyle killed it on the spotify! The ceremony and reception music went off without a hitch! You kept our plates and glasses full, not just for Ryan and I, but for all of our guests as well. Everyone fell in love with you, especially when we brought out the 'boomerangs'! LOL And they were so impressed with your coordination abilities and creativeness.

Allison is one of those truly genuine people that you really feel like you connect with. I hired a wedding planner and ended up with a life-long friend. Hiring Allison/The Golden Pineapple Event Company was one of the best decisions we could have made. And for brides-to be, I promise you will not regret hiring Allison as your wedding planner. The only regret I have is that it's over! - Chelsea (Bride)

The best wedding planner team in South Florida! My wedding went flawlessly from the beginning to the end because of Allison. From the walk through to rehearsal dinner to wedding day she was always one step ahead. When it comes to professionalism and organization you must choose The Golden Pineapple. I couldn't be a happier client and bride. - Anna - Bride

It is hard to put in words how Allison and her team made our day the least stressful and most carefree possible. We were given a minute by minutes itinerary of the day which they managed perfectly. Allison thought of every detail and dealt with all of our vendors. As the MOB I was able to concentrate on my daughter and know Allison was taking care of the rest. I highly recommend Golden Pineapple Event Planning..you will not be disappointed. Thank you Allison for making our daughter's wedding a "dream come true". -Holly Rocker - Mother of the Bride

Future brides: if you are second guessing yourself about hiring a planner I am here to tell you it's the best thing we've done. Do it! And I highly recommend Allison @goldenpineappleevents. She's an absolute angel! She keeps me on track, organized and calm. If you know me well enough you know I am an indecisive, anxious person. As soon as she calls I feel gravity kick in and positive vibes wash over me as I float back down to earth. Another reason to love her: She offers 3 different priced packages on her website. She is very respectful of budget. For all the work she does, and emotional support she gives, it's worth every penny. She's affordable (she worked with me on our budget); she's also level headed, reliable and FUN! I never know what to say to vendors, or how to properly discuss discounts or budgets but she is a pro. She also does "day of", you can read about it on her website. She deserves recognition, and love. *hugs* I'd love nothing more than to see my friends be Golden Pineapple Brides. She has no idea I'm posting this, nor did she put me up to it. She has truly touched my heart and I feel as though I've gained a lifelong friend. I can't thank you enough Allison! I hope this next year is filled with success and growth. XoXo -Lauren Hall (Bride-To-Be)

Soon I will try to gather the words to properly express my gratitude for you, but for now, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping our dreams come true. The pictures you sent were wonderful to wake up to And even the guests couldn't have been more impressed with you and your assistant, we heard all about it at brunch the next day. -Laura Buza (Bride)

Thank you Golden Pineapple Event team for truly giving my best friend a magical wedding day! The wedding party had a great time with you throughout the day and you were right there when we needed something (even though this didn't happen much because you just knew what we needed before we needed it!). Total package: professional, fun and efficient! -Kari (Matron of Honor)

Oh my goodness!!!!!! I cannot say enough good things about Allison and Golden Pineapple Event Company! My now husband was hesitant to have a "wedding planner" but as soon as he met Allison and listened to what she could help us with he was on board. We hired Golden Pineapple to be our "month of planner" but she was there if we needed her before that month. She went above and beyond to help us plan our special day and helped me with all those little hiccups that come along with the wedding planning process. I remember I was have a semi freaked out moment when my wedding dress shop was telling me my dress would arrive 2 weeks before the wedding. I sent Allison a quick text asking her if this was normal and within 20 seconds, she responded "On it! on the phone with them now!" Allison took care of it, the dress arrived 5 weeks before the wedding. That was the general theme of working with her "Allison took care of it". The day of the wedding arrived and I was BEYOND IMPRESSED! She arrived with her team and made sure every detail was looked into and that Erik and I were taken care of and felt special on our day. I got so many compliments from my bridal party, family, and guests how great, professional, nice, and on top of it they were the entire day. They even packed up all of our wedding items & gifts and had them delivered to our room by the time we got home. She even went out the next day and delivered our donated flowers to the Quantum House for us. Seriously!? How awesome is that?! Besides marrying Erik, choosing Allison/Golden Pineapple as our wedding planner was the best decision we made that day. Hands down! -Kelly Spencer (Bride)

Allison and her team are the go to team when it comes to event planning! Allison went above and beyond, she kept in contact with me, making sure I stayed on task and reminded me of things I needed to take care of. She made a detailed timeline to be certain everyone involved knew what was expected of them. She helped decorate our venue and made sure that I was at ease. If you think you need a coordinator (YOU DO trust me) - then this team should be your first choice! Love love love them! -Karissa O'Connell (Bride)

Hiring Allison and The Golden Pineapple Event Company was one of the best decisions we made for our daughter's wedding. At first we didn't think a "day of coordinator" was necessary, but boy were we wrong! Throughout the whole planning process she went above and beyond, even in ways we didn't expect. From the very first conversation, we knew we were in good hands. She asked all the right questions and took meticulous notes and had lots of good ideas. Her contacts for vendors were reliable, professional and as impressive as she was. If we hit a roadblock, her calm demeanor and considerable problem skills easily navigated around them. She was always a text, email or phone call away. Although she was excellent throughout the planning stage, the day of the wedding was when she really SHINED! Her and her team had a calm, cool demeanor that put everyone at ease. They made sure that everything was going perfectly behind the scenes so that we could just enjoy our daughter's special day. They were very attentive and took care of things that we didn't even know went amiss until the next day. Allison took care of everything, from beginning to end. It was wonderful to be able to focus on our daughter and just enjoy the day and not have to worry about setting anything up beforehand, cleaning up afterwards or packing up the gifts. She even took care of the marriage license and returned the groom's tux afterwards! Allison's services are well worth the price and I would recommend her to any bride who is looking to have a stress free day with all the details carefully taken care of. If you are looking for someone to entrust one of the most important and memorable days of your life, I highly recommend Allison and The Golden Pineapple Event Company. She is a supremely organized, detail oriented, artistically minded proficient planner. But above all, she is passionate about putting together a wedding you will never forget. -Renee Lodes (Mother of the Bride)

The Golden Pineapple Event Company is amazing! As soon as I met Allison I knew that she was the person I needed to handle all the little details of the day and boy am I thrilled with the product! Allison is creative and knowledgeable. She can turn a simple idea on a piece of paper into an entire concept! She is professional and she kept me confident that everything would happen according to plan.If you are looking for someone to help you with your big day or someone to go ahead and take the reigns, you should feel confident that Allison will have you and your guests going "ohhhhhhh look at that!" and "ahhhh that is so amazing". Beyond her coordination abilities and her creativeness, Allison is one of those truly genuine people that you really feel like you connect with. Sometimes in the wedding industry, you may come in contact with people that make you feel like they don't have the time to get to know you and what you are envisioning, but NOT Allison. She takes time to fully understand where you are coming from and where you are wanting to go. She is the total package and made my day perfect! -Shelby Reid (Bride)

I had the privilege to work with Allison from the Golden Pineapple Event Company last weekend for the first time, and I certainly hope it is not my last time ! Wow ! Talk about organized and detailed ! I've been a wedding DJ since probably before she was even born and have worked with many planners. Allison's star shines brightly right up at the top of my list. She is friendly, helpful to her other vendors and always 3 steps ahead of what needs to happen next. Needless to say, she is a perfectionist in every sense of the word and if you're a bride looking for somebody to make the process of planning your wedding fun, informative and helpful, give Allison a call today. You will enjoy a stress-free environment with someone who cares and listens to your vision, then guides you every step of the way to make it come true. -Skip Kelly (Skip Kelly Productions)

I am the newest raving fan of Allison Lewis and The Golden Pineapple Event Company! She is articulate and soft - yet strong when needed with vendors. She was delightful to the entire wedding party -respectful and non-invasive - yet appeared at all the right times to handle whatever needed to be done. She and her staff anticipated every detail. My daughters wedding day was the happiest day of my life and there is no doubt it was because I didn't have to worry about one thing. Thank you Allison for all you did for my family! -Ann DeFries (Mother of the Bride)

Allison was the planner for a wedding we recently provided floral design for, and my team had nothing but incredible things to say about her. She made sure that each vendor was tended to while also providing perfect communication with the bride. We cannot wait to work with Allison again and would recommend her to any of our brides. -Jenny Preston (Port & Palm Co.)

I cannot say enough positive things about Allison Lewis and the Golden Pineapple Event Company. Fist off, Allison was a delight to work with! Her positivity, grace, creativity, organization, and efficiency were evident throughout the entire process. She will do whatever she can, above and beyond, to make sure that your special day is beautiful and as stress free as possible. Her husband even joined in on the team to help with our music at the reception! Thank you, Allison and team, for making my wedding dreams a reality! - Lauren (Bride)

Allison is truly amazing. She was one of the best vendors we hired, if not the best. I decided to plan my own wedding being that I am a planner however I knew it was needed to hire someone for "day of planning" in order to avoid chaos. I knew Allison was the one to hire the second we exchanged emails, needless to say she was the most genuine planner I have ever encountered. Allison exceeded all of our expectations. She anticipated every single need. Allison is everything you want in a Wedding Planner! We are very lucky she accepted to be a part of our special day. If you are looking for a planner, look no further! Allison has it all, including an "emergency kit" that carries everything you can think of..... Thank you Allison!!!! -Anabel & Andy (Bride and Groom)

Allison, the owner of Golden Pineapple Events, was the true savior of my wedding. Our wedding day was absolutely flawless and people are still talking about the amount of fun that they had and how great she was. During our initial phone consultation I knew Allison was the event planner for me. Allison is one of the most creative, kind, attentive, optimistic, humble, and supportive individuals I have ever met. Our planning process was unique in that the caterer for our venue changed three different times. Allison was an absolute genius and negotiated items and services that we would never have imagined, saving us so much money! On the day of my wedding Allison helped advocate for me and minimized all stress while bringing her cheerful spirit. All details were executed perfect and without Allison I probably would have lost my mind. If you are looking for a wedding planner, I beg of you to not waste your time with anyone else. Allison and her team will exceed your expectations, go above and beyond your contract, and are absolutely perfect in every way!! XOXO-Lauren (bride)
