Just the absolute best!
If you have not found a wedding planner, LOOK NO FURTHER! Seriously, I consider myself a picky bride and Allison & Madie literally knocked it out of the park. They are both two of the best vendors I have ever worked with for both my wedding and in my professional career. Their enthusiasm and passion for the wedding industry just made me want to be their best friend! We got married in Islamorada, FL at the Post Card Inn, and I can't say enough wonderful things about these exceptional event planners. They thought of everything, even more detail than I could imagine. I ran low on time on the wedding day because my hair took a long time, and Madie wrote my vows down from my phone to my vow book. She even went out to her car to get a velvet ring box for the photographer to use. She had a helper on the day of, Alex, who was just as wonderful as Madie & Allison. Alex was so incredibly friendly & her work ethic was fabulous. During the day, they told my now husband and I where we needed to be, and what we needed to have. They brought us our drinks and made sure we were hydrated. They communicated with the other vendors to make sure everything was running smoothly. They even carried around my deodorant and lipgloss, so I could refresh in between pictures. I work in a professional environment on a day-to-day basis, and the level of professionalism these girls presented was unparalleled. I also plan for a living and I did not want to plan this day. I am so grateful to them for making all of our wedding dreams come true. It may sound like a cliche, but they were seriously flawless. They know their craft & they know it well, and my husband and I are eternally grateful for their amazing work.Sent on 08/24/2020

Allison and her team were so amazing to work with. Even for a small wedding, she made us feel completely comfortable and buttoned up. Positive attitude and smiling face constantly - couldn't have done it without her!Sent on 01/18/2020

Best Day of my life because of this team!
I cant say enough about Allison and her team. Besides making sure my wedding day was ABSOLUTELY FLAWLESS.. Allison was with me through the entire process. She is so talented with taking the brides vision and making it come to life. I had little to no idea what i was doing planning and through all my gibberish, the Golden Pineapple team was able to present me with ideas to match my theme and vibe perfectly, without me knowing it. I truly could not have gotten married without Allison and her team at my side. The day was timely, and ran so seamless i give this team all the props for making that happen. Through the planning process, Allison was in constant communication with me making sure i was calm and confident about every decision we made. She is a true rock star and i couldn't have done it without her or her amazing team. I HIGHLY recommend her to any bride!Sent on 03/09/2020

Incredible!!! You need GP!!
I got married in May of 2019 in Islamorada and worked with the Golden Pineapple team to plan our wedding. WOW! Allison and her team were incredible. Extremely responsive, organized, and reliable throughout the planning process, and surpassed all expectations during the actual event. Allison and her team remained calm and professional throughout the the weekend. They did not hesitate to complete every little task to ensure the day went smoothly. Our wedding was at a private home so all vendors (and setup) were brought in (not a standard venue). This required a lot of planning, communication and coordination. Allison and her team will make sure your wedding runs smoothly, and they couldn't be nicer! Money well spent!!Sent on 08/07/2019

All I can say is WOW. I attended a wedding this past weekend in Islamorada and it was truly a magical experience. Allison and her team are truly amazing at what they do. My friend had hired Allison as her wedding coordinator/ planner ( I was a bridesmaid) and she is very professional, and organized. She did such a great job at her wedding. She kept in contact with all the groomsmen and bridesmaids to make sure we were all on the same page. She sent out a very detailed wedding timeline that was very helpful for what we would be doing for the weekend. Allison is very sweet and kept everyone calm and relaxed throughout the event weekend. I have nothing but great things to say out her company and team, The wedding wouldn't have been the same without them! Thank you for everything. <3Sent on 06/11/2018

Allison @ AGPE was one of the first vendors I hired after decided to have a "destination" wedding back home in WPB. I hadn't lived in WPB for over 10 years and looked to Allison for all her advice and recommendations for all vendors. She has experience working with multiple vendors, her tips and tricks through her online portal keeps you organized, and her responsiveness to email and texts, simultaneously, was always appreciated. Her team, Kelly and Kyle during the day of the event helped the show run smoothly and let us, the bridal party and parents enjoy our time getting ready. We can't thank Allison and her team enough for coordinating and taking the time to detail out every minute of our wedding day!!Sent on 07/19/2018

Best Wedding Planner Ever
I’m not even sure where to begin, so I guess I will start by saying our wedding wouldn’t have been possible without Allison. From the very first time I spoke with Allison I knew I wanted her there on my wedding day. Allison was everything you would expect from your wedding planner, organized, bubbly, professional yet friendly. She was the real deal. My now husband was reluctant to hire a wedding planner, but I convinced him and the months leading up before our wedding all he could do was sing Allison’s praise as she finalized even the smallest details that we wouldn’t have thought of. Allison was not only great to us, she was all great to the family and guests at our wedding. I cannot recommend Allison and the rest of her Golden Pineapple Team enough. When you hire Allison you not only getting a wedding planner, but a friend!Sent on 02/09/2019

If you are in southern Florida and are planning a wedding, Allison and Team are the answer to your prayers. Allison helped us plan, replan (outdoor wedding that became tented due to rain), and finally bring together a “Spectacular” wedding. Our wedding was not typical due to use living in Dallas and all of the moving pieces. I can honestly say, she single handily kept my wife sane and my daughter focused! You are missing out if you do not use Allison and Team!!!Sent on 04/29/2018

If your getting married you do not want to do it without Allison and her staff. I don’t know how they do it but they know what you want and deliver before you you could ask. She handled every detail with every vendor and made sure our daughters wedding day went off without any issues. I don’t feel like thank you is enough, but Thank you! Our guest were so impressed with Allison and her staff fulfilling every want and need without ever having to be asked. They are professional, talented, honest and go way above and beyond. Thank you Golden Pineapple Event & Company!Sent on 04/18/2018

Allison was so great to work with! She was always so positive and made sure I kept sane with all the craziness of planning a wedding. Month of, she worked with the vendors and helped make a timeline so things ran smoothly for rehearsal and day of. Day of, her and her team were above and beyond amazing! I can’t thank them enough for helping make our wedding the best day of our lives! Highly recommend! So many of our guests asked for her contact information for when they get married because they noticed how well they made sure everything ran smoothly.Sent on 04/19/2018

Allison and the Golden Pineapple team were beyond amazing! They single handedly made our wedding dreams a reality!! Allison was fully invested and helped keep us on track and moving forward toward our dream day. Allison is so patient, kind and encouraging. As a first year teacher planning a wedding in 6 months seemed impossible, but Allison reassured me that we would be able to.
Allison and her team far exceed my expectations of the assistance during the wedding day. She and her team thought of the little things. She booked and kept track of all of the major vendors, meeting dates and joined me at many of my meetings to help me make tough decisions. She thought of the littlest details on our wedding day - even down to a starbucks cup with "Bride" written on it. She solved countless hiccups throughout the wedding day (without me knowing) and made she that Brandon and I were happy and fed :)
Our wedding day was PERFECT!!!
Thank you Allison and team!! I would highly recommend this service to anyone who wants a stress-free wedding day! I could go on and on but I'm just so thankful for Allison friendship and that I am able to look back on my wedding day without regret or worry that I missed out on any detail <3Sent on 03/30/2018

It started out as one of the coldest weeks in FL I have ever experienced. Tampa was our destination & the weatherman was predicting snow. I wasn't a bit concerned after all palm trees & snow fall would make for excellent photos. Our BIG day quickly arrived (cherish the moments leading up to it, b/c its INSANE how fast things move) but needless to say a few packages hadn't, blizzards up north slowed down delivery times & the morning of we quickly came to the realization our groom, groomsman, father of the bride and our beloved 4 legged-friend would be without ties & accessories! Allison jumped into action, just as she had from day 1. The moment Kyle, her husband handed over his shark-printed tie for my dad to wear I knew just how lucky we were to have hired Allison & her team. What are the chances? My dad a fisherman for most of his life gets to sport a shark tie. I laughed. Nothing could go wrong, I was at peace, I had total faith in Allison & her capabilities. It was magical evening, all details were executed perfectly & without Allison I probably would have lost my mind. In my opinion, also in my experience everyone has that wonderful-wedding-day family drama..Allison was such a good sport, I cannot say enough about how grateful I am that she was there to defuse the negative energy, resolve any & all concerns. She was literally like my fairy godmother showing up for duty with a wand & shield, protecting me & guiding me on my way.Sent on 06/14/2018
Allison is well prepared, fearless, humble & detail oriented. She was with me every step of the way no only in the planning process but emotionally as well. A friendship blossomed & having Allison at my side just made perfect sense. Her & Kyle didn't let a moment pass during our big day in which we didn't feel special & well taken care of. Our wedding party even said she was the most organized planner they had ever worked with, most of them having several weddings under their belts this made such a lasting impression.

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.....Sent on 06/27/2017
Thank you Allison!!!!

Allison, this is a time when thank you seems insufficient. But thank you.Sent on 07/26/2017
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, and 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. 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! Thank you to Kyle, 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.
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!

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!! XOXOSent on 07/02/2017

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!Sent on 11/18/2016

The Golden Pineapple Event company was a dream to work with, and I only wish we had hired her sooner. Allison’s genuinely sweet personality shines through from the moment you meet until everything is packed up and over with. There is not enough space available to list the messages of support, helpful ideas, and personal touches that were present from start to finish of our contract. Her support leading up to the day of was indispensable - she tied up loose ends, confirmed vendor contracts, created a timeline - all of the little things that helped me to focus on precious moments with my fiancé and family. She ran our rehearsal efficiently and made us feel fully prepared for the next day. Even after one evening, our family and bridal party recognized what a gem we had in a wedding planner! I think that speaks volumes. She was beautifully over prepared on the day of, and created a perfect balance of staying on schedule and making sure I was calm and happy throughout the morning (ignorance can be bliss on the day of your wedding… and if you hire Allison, you won’t worry about a thing). Her and her teammate Emily worked behind the scenes throughout the night to keep us (and our guests) happy. Our cups were never empty, we ate our appetizers AND dinner, spoke to all of our guests, and had our dream day thanks to her execution!Sent on 04/18/2016

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!Sent on 10/24/2015

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.Sent on 11/05/2015

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!
