Abby Henderson, the owner and event planner at 13 Cedar Events, fell in love with event planning while working for an exclusive country club in her home state of Alabama. She's a fan of gorgeous design, but also a sucker for all things organized and in checklist form.

After planning a variety of events for the last 12 years, at the private and corporate level, she decided to start her own event company, and in early January 2016, 13 Cedar Events was born.

Best planner ever
My husband and I are so happy that we decided to use Abby and 13 Cedar Events to plan our winter wedding. I am personally so detail oriented, so to work with a planner who pays such attention to detail was such a relief. Abby handled everything for us from start to finish (rentals, cake, getaway car, marriage license application, venue). You name it she covered it, and when anything unexpected arose she went above and beyond to resolve any conflicts without leaving me stressed out! (SUCH A BLESSING!) I really felt at ease with the whole process, I never had to worry about forgetting a single detail because we were always covered. Abby kept us in the know when vendor appointments were, when payments were do, what we needed for the day of, etc...Sent on 01/21/2019
The day of the wedding went without a hitch, which again, you can't begin to put a price on. I felt like a princess on my wedding day and had Abby's constant support and help, whether it be bustling my dress or keeping my drink filled. Thank you for making our day an absolute dream. Part of me wants to get married again just so I can have more planning dates, over a glass of champagne of course, with Abby!

If I could give Abby 20 stars on each of the criteria, I would! She was truly our hero the entire wedding planning process. Every vendor we worked with highly recommended her, and we now know why! She helped guide us through the planning process with ease and also made sure we enjoyed what can be a super stressful time. My husband and I both travel quite a bit for work and didn’t have a ton of time to devote to planning, so Abby made sure nothing got missed and our dream wedding vision became a reality. Our wedding was the absolute best day ever and I can honestly say Abby was the one who made it happen. You’re in the best hands!

The most amazing human!
Abby is the absolute best - hands down, no comparison, stop what you're doing and book her now! Seriously though, my now-husband and I were conflicted about whether to spend the money on a month-of planner, but after meeting Abby, I fell immediately in love and would have thrown every last penny at her. She was EXACTLY the kind of person I needed in my corner for the 6 weeks leading up to our wedding, and especially on the day itself. She was confident, caring and considerate, while also being able to give me a kick in the butt when I really needed it. You can tell she is passionate about her work and her clients and she truly does make you feel like you are the only (and most beautiful) bride in the world. I didn't have to worry about a single thing on my wedding day; she took care of everything so we could relax and have fun. If I could, I would carry her around in my pocket with me everywhere I went so she could advise me on my life. She's that good. We love you Abby! Thanks for the best day ever!Sent on 12/03/2018

Abby is beyond amazing at her job! You will immediately fall in love with her personality, and her attention to detail and knowledge of the industry make her indispensable when planning a wedding or any event. I highly recommend 13 Cedar Events for any special occasion!
Weddings can be stressful but they don't have to be. Hire a pro that knows how to take care of the details and enjoy your day. We have seen a lot of weddings and it's easy to immediately recognize that Abby pays attention to details and she has a personality that puts folks at ease. very valuable traits for a wedding planner.
We like working with you too! Having a great planner set the table for the DJ to rock the party is vital. You do that for us. Team bride!
