Xochtil and her team helped us pull off an amazing wedding at Smack Mellon. Smack Mellon is a complex venue since it is a raw space and they helped us pull together all the details. Xochitl made super vendor recommendations, provided excellent advice, and made sure we thought of all the details. Her team on the day of our wedding was top notch. I was a little nervous about how it would all come together, but they were so on top of things that I didn't even think of a single wedding detail on the day of my wedding. If anything went wrong it was handled and I didn't have to worry about it. I simply enjoyed my day to the fullest and it all came together perfectly. AAB gives you that peace of mind and pulls together a fabulous day.

When we discussed decor we were open to suggestions & she was pushing this lighting that we were unsure of. We definitely pushed back on it because we were happy to just use a lot of candle light & dim house lights because of all of the beautiful brick/industrial look of the foundry. We did leave it open & asked for images of what it would look like to shoot blue & pink lights onto red brick. Xochtil was explaining that the colored lighting would enhance the look of the space but we were not that into it. We NEVER gave the go ahead for the lighting. After a few meetings about everything including the design, we received an invoice for the decor including a substantial cost (I can't remember anymore) for the lighting that we never gave the ok for. We brought it up with Xochtil & she was extremely unprofessional about this situation. She said (in a rude way) that it was too late to cancel the lighting & that she didn't need us to sign off on every aspect of the decor. That it would cost us $500 to cancel the lights. We didn't want to pay thousands of dollars for colored lights that we weren't even that excited about to begin with so we just agreed to pay the $500 to cancel the lighting.

We got an email from Xochtil before the final meeting explaining that she would not be there personally the day of our wedding. That her partner would. I sent a reply that was very calm asking why she wouldn't be there since when we met it wasn't explained to us. She sent an emotional response saying that it was rude to say that about her partner. I didn't agree since I was asking for clarification as to why we were just learning that she would not be there.

The decor was beautiful, the day went off without an issue however when we thought to hire a planner it was to make things EASIER not more difficult. I felt that a lot of my time was spent walking on eggshells to avoid explosive rude emails from her & then ultimately just avoiding any interaction with her at all.
