  • Summer was a great throughout our planning process. She helped us understand and translate our vision of our wedding into reality. I would definitely recommend FireFly to my closes friends.

  • I don't even know where to begin! I'll start from the beginning - choosing a package was SO easy and Summer actually went above and beyond our initial package as I was not from the area OR living in Asheville so she provided me with a lot of guidance on other vendors for everything else we needed! She also helped me put together a true team, not just a bunch of individual vendors, and I loved that everyone had worked together many times in the past! She checked in frequently by email and was so quick to respond in some of my more "panicked" moments. She also made time for extra phone calls as needed! She kept me calm and answered many of our questions about ceremony flow/layout/etc since we were not doing a traditional church wedding so did not have much guidance for the ceremony without her! She also kept track of ALL of our personal items and vendors on the day of and kept all of her check ins with me pertinent and brief and didn't stress me out at all even with changes on the day of...

  • Summer Wember and Firefly Event Company absolutely was essential to my big day! I got a day of package and couldn’t have been more pleased! I did all of my own vendor selections and most basic planning but Summer organized all of my vendors, made sure everything happened and made so many good suggestions I just couldn’t have had the amazing day that I had without her there! I can’t say enough good things. Thank you a million times!!

  • AMAZING! Summer jumped through hoops, took on a small event on short notice and pulled off an amazing 50th wedding anniversary event for my parents on behalf of myself and my siblings. We were looking for something memorable for two people who have given so much and material things carry little value. What was worth every penny was hiring Firefly to plan and coordinate an intimate family event. Summer found a breathtaking and perfect location, accomplished finding food that everyone liked (including 3 vegetarians and 7 kids) and found musicians and a florist that simply made the entire day magical. Could not sing enough praises. It was a total leap of faith since none of us are locals and did not have the ability to scout anything out in advance. As my siblings said the minute we arrived to the event...WELL DONE! Thank you Summer!

  • Hillary was top notch! We had personally organized most of the elements of our big celebration (putting the vision together, contracting with vendors, etc.), but the best investment we made in our big day was to get Hillary on board for day-of coordination. In the last two months prior to our celebration, Hillary took the reins and pulled all the final details together to make sure our decisions were sound (e.g., transportation needs, venue layout), to confirm final plans with each vendor, and to finalize the all-important day-of schedule. She was a pleasure to work with, incredibly responsive and organized, and respectful of the financial considerations of the event. And we went into our celebration with the confidence that everything would play out as we desired. Ultimately, we were able to enjoy our celebration to the fullest thanks to Hillary's and her teammate Summer's efforts -- and what a special day it was!

    Thank you so much Shane and Greg! It was such a pleasure to work with both of you and your reception was a blast! I wish you all the happiness!

  • Jocelyn is everything you could hope for in a wedding planner - detail oriented, kind, and positive. We planned our wedding remotely and Jocelyn's help was critical to managing all the day of details. We can't thank you enough!

  • Firefly event company served as day of coordinators, but ending up doing SO much more. They helped us starting two months out and finalized all the details. It allowed us to be free of stress and enjoy the final days leading up to our wedding. The service on the actual wedding day was amazing. I'll never forget when they came and got me to walk down the aisle, they were so calming as i started to lose it! They were professional, nice, organized, and on top of everything. I would 100% recommend them to anyone and use them again.

  • I can not say enough about the exceptional professionalism and performance of Firefly. Not only the company in general, but the specific individuals, Summer and Lynn, were outstanding. They saved the day in many ways and we can not thank them enough for all their hard work and attention to details. We recommend their full service for any event! Thank you ladies!

  • If you are planning a wedding or other event in Asheville, you MUST consider Firefly Events! We worked with Summer in planning our daughter's out of town wedding in Asheville. With parents in Illinois and Florida, and wedding couple in California, none of us super-familiar with AVL, we were foreseeing many challenges. Summer helped calm our nervousness and assisted with lots of details, from the simple things (favorite local salons) to some major decisions (which venue will suit our needs and help us stay on budget). We met with her in Asheville only on 2 occasions before the wedding week, but she phone conferenced with us often as the big day approached. We enjoyed the planning process much more because of Summer (who, by the way, is a wonderfully organized 'list person', just like me)! At the rehearsal, Summer was able to quickly and professionally organize our large and social wedding party. The whole group left knowing the whole plan and expecting a beautiful ceremony. Best of a... Read more

  • Having been from out of town and not knowing much about the Asheville scene, we met with a few different planners and were instantly impressed with Summer at Firefly. She radiated warmth, personality, confidence and put our minds at ease right off the bat. We walked away feeling really great about our decision to hire Summer. And over the last 12 months until through our actual wedding day, there was nothing that was left unturned working with her. Summer's level of responsiveness and insight, carried us happily through to the finish line. I can't tell you how many texts she answered at all hours, emails and calls etc., she was right there to help, provide recommendations and give us a sense of calm (she is extremely calming...as wedding planning can get stressful!!) Cut to almost 12 months later....we had the wedding of our dreams on June 17 and a huge reason for that was Summer. Her and her partner, Jocelyn, made sure everything was just perfect that day/night and beyond. From wo... Read more

  • We loved working with Jocelyn at Firefly! We booked a mid-range package that was more than day-of planning, but not full-service planning, and it was exactly what we needed. Jocelyn was there from the beginning for advice, suggestions, and answering questions...everything from invitation wording to helping out when our caterer canceled on us six months out. She was friendly, responsive, helpful, and very organized. Couldn't imagine having done it without her!

  • We had the best experience with Jocelyn coordinating our wedding. She made the entire planning process easy and stress free! The day of the wedding, everything went smoothly and we had the most perfect day! I loved that Jocelyn always made sure my husband and I had a drink in our hands throughout the night, and made sure we got to enjoy the food- which is easy to forget with all that is going on during the wedding!

  • I am so thankful for Summer and the Firefly team. As an out of town bride, I wanted someone in Asheville to support my husband, my family, and me with pulling together the logistics of our wedding day. Summer stepped up to that challenge and did so with such ease. In the planning process, Summer shared helpful documents with my mom and me to help us figure out what we needed to be thinking about when. We had calls every few weeks to check in about updates and troubleshoot any pieces we felt stuck on. My husband and I had a lot going on throughout the year we planned our wedding, but working with Summer helped us feel focused and on track. She was also always willing to check in with different members of our families and provide suggestions for parts of the wedding weekend with which she was not directly assisting (i.e. rehearsal dinner, day after brunch). We really appreciated her insider information for two families of outsiders! While Summer was wonderful during the planning process... Read more

  • Let me start by saying our wedding really was absolutely fabulous and I could not have asked for a more beautiful, fun night. I booked Jocelyn early on in my planning process with the gold package ($3100). Our consultation call was great and I was confident she would be a great coordinator. Throughout the process I was disappointed with her multiple times - there are only so many times that rescheduling phone calls at the last minute or weeks delay in email responses are excusable. The week of the wedding I got very little correspondence from her until the Thursday prior to the event. By that point my fiancé and I were already en route to Asheville for our big day. The details discussed during these calls and emails would all have been appropriate to be discussed before this time. We met Friday to do the rehearsal and then Saturday for the big event. I will say all of my vendors were where they were supposed to be and the space was absolutely beautiful so I will give her some credit t... Read more

    I have reviewed our correspondence and do not feel that this review accurately portrays how we communicated throughout our planning. It is extremely unfortunate that your cards and other cake knife were stolen, thus resulting in this review. I hate more than anything that this stained your memory of the event and that this took place after such a magical celebration. Wishing you and Chris all the best and more.
