Thank you so much Kate! I was so nervous about it all coming together, but everything turned out stunning and better than I could have imagined! Thank you for helping create our vision. You made everything go so seamlessly. I know there were things going on that you just handled that I wasn’t even aware of, so thank you, thank you for everything, even the stuff we just didn’t know about!
Anni + Jack

Knowledgeable, Reliable, and Professional
I’m very glad we hired Firefly Event Company as our wedding planner. Kate was extremely responsive and helpful. She managed our vendors really well, too. We selected the Platinum package and were very happy with the level of service we received.  I would definitely recommend using Kate for your special day! She really was great.
Kristen + Phil

In preparation for our recent wedding in Asheville with a reception at an event barn in the beautiful surrounding mountains, we found FIREFLY EVENT COMPANY by searching on line and finding the website. There were so many things there that appealed to us, fit our personalities and had the overall feel of what we wanted for our day. We knew after meeting with Jocelyn that we had lucked out in finding someone very special. She was truly professional, took time to listen to all our thoughts, gave us some initial ideas that we liked and then gave us short lists of vendors that she felt would be a good fit. She also was helpful and realistic when discussing our budget. She she was absolutely spot-on in every area. She was a wonderful liaison and coordinated every aspect with all involved. She gave us honest and extremely helpful opinions and guidance and always got back to us very quickly when we had questions. She was such a positive, calming and flexible presence through the whole process. Our wedding day was beyond all our expectations and we did not have a moment of having to think or worry about any logistical aspect the entire day. We were able to just have a blast knowing we were in great, capable hands with Jocelyn and the staff of FIREFLY. Many of our guests said it was one of the most beautiful weddings they had ever seen. We highly recommend her for any events you might be planning.

Absolutely Wonderful!!  Kate Edwards-Baumbach was stellar in everything that was presented to her. Attention to detail… was remarkable. Her communication was even better. She made my bride and I so much more comfortable with the entire event. Her charm was splendid. Through every moment she was there, even with as much spontaneity as we encountered throughout the entire event and everything leading up to it. She just made everything as smooth as could be expected. I highly recommend Firefly (and more importantly Kate) for their unmatched services!
Mandee + Jeremy

Working with Firefly Event Company was the best decision my husband and I made while planning our August 15th Wedding in Asheville. Summer did it all and made it seem effortless. From the first consultation to walking the venue, to the rehearsal and day of coordination, Summer helped take our vision and turn it into a beautiful reality. She kept us focused, calm, and helped us work through the details that we never would have been able to tackle on our own. Her knowledge of the business, professionalism, and strong vendor recommendation made it easy to trust her. Our wedding day was amazing, fun-filled, and most important of all, easy! We have Summer and her team at Firefly Event Company to thank for that!
Kaitlyn + David

Firefly Event Company is truly amazing. I was in my final year of an intensive Masters program when I got engaged and had very little time to plan my wedding- but Jocelyn took care of EVERYTHING. She connected us to the most amazing vendors- I do not think we would have found any of these great vendors without her. She made itineraries for us, kept in touch with all of our vendors, and helped me every step of the way. For the wedding weekend, she made the most amazing day of schedule. The reception flowed SO smoothly because of the schedule Jocelyn made. I have never been to a reception that seemed to flow THAT smooth. I can’t even put it into words!! She was also a god-send on the day of the wedding. She was a great calming presence- dealt with so many things so I would be able to relax and enjoy myself- and was truly a rockstar. I can’t explain how amazing she was and how grateful my husband and I are for having her plan our wedding. Any couple would be so lucky to have Firefly Event Company. Truly amazing. I have been told by multiple guests our wedding was the best wedding they have ever been to- and I agree!
Erin + Ben

Seriously, AMAZING! These are the best wedding planners imaginable. Jocelyn anticipated my every need and was completely there for me when I needed extra help, a pick me up, or a bit of calming down. She is extremely organized and made sure that I got things done when they needed to be. Most importantly, she and Summer made the day perfect and the overwhelming process fun!!! I have a very busy schedule and could not have planned my wedding without her.
Eleanor + Chris

Words cannot begin to describe how grateful I am to have hired Jocelyn and Summer for our spring wedding. No matter how many times we changed our minds on various decisions, they always remained calm, kind and compassionate. More importantly, they treated you with the upmost respect and were extremely knowledgable – this was so helpful in guiding our decisions along the way. I would have been an absolute train wreck the day of our wedding without these two! Best money spent without a doubt!!!!! Cannot give enough praise and support for Firefly Event Company!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ashley + Song

Jocelyn and the Firefly team are all fantastic! Our ceremony was in a relatively unique location and yet the Firefly crew helped make the event go flawlessly. We could not have done it without their support, insight and willingness to make the day exactly what we had hoped. Throughout the wedding planning process, Jocelyn was professional and responsive. She helped answer any questions that came up and guided us through the planning portion of the event. Each of her team members were incredibly sweet and helpful during the wedding. We received many compliments on their level of service. We highly recommend using this great company!!
Kaitlin + Spencer

Summer and her team were absolutely amazing. They made the wedding planning process so easy and fun! Summer completely understood our vision and brought it to life. Our wedding could not have been more perfect and it’s all because Summer and the Firefly team! Thank you!
Belle + Matt

Jocelyn was wonderful leading up to the wedding with keeping me on track and making sure I had all of my vendors booked in time, which was incredibly helpful with a busy work schedule! On the day of, I’m not sure what we would have done without Jocelyn and Summer. Every detail of the day turned out perfectly! They made the day go by so seamlessly and allowed my husband and I, and our families, to just relax and enjoy the day!
Kathryn + Rudy

The Firefly Event staff was above and beyond! As a professional event planner myself, when it came to planning and executing my own wedding I knew I was going to hire someone, and not dare try it myself. Firefly Event Co. was my first choice. I met with Jocelyn for a coffee and just went over the ideas we both had. From then on I followed her guidance. She led me to amazing vendors that really tied the day together perfect, from invitations, music, to flowers. She saved me more money by having affordable venders than ones I sought out on my own. Then on day of, I didn’t have a clue if there was a hiccup or not, because she took care of everything. She even stepped in to save my Mom from getting in trouble from getting lipstick on my dress.  I know the day wouldn’t have been as flawless or exciting if it wasn’t for Firefly Events and their amazing staff. I can’t give her a high enough accolades, but make Firefly Event Company the very first decision of your wedding, and I can promise you a spectacular event.
Martha + Mike

Jocelyn was a delight to work with from start to finish! My husband and I planned our Asheville wedding via emails and phone calls from our home in Houston, and Jocelyn was our day-of coordinator — but she was much more. Months out, she was available to talk details with, to give recommendations, and hiring her was the best decision we made. We found our photographer (amazing!) and our florist (wonderful!) from her list of preferred vendors. She took time to get to know us, to understand the parts of the day that meant the most to us and was sure they flowed flawlessly – we even had time to eat! I’d recommend hiring a coordinator to any bride, and Jocelyn and her team in particular – our wedding weekend was fun and carefree thanks to Firefly Event Company!
Corissa + Charlie

Summer and Firefly Event Co. made our day go so smoothly! We had a logistically complicated and non-traditional venue, but Summer made sure everything worked out flawlessly. She was super organized and communicated well throughout the whole process. I could tell that she really wanted us to have exactly the type of wedding we wanted, and didn’t try to talk us into a bunch of stuff that wasn’t important to us. It was a huge stress off my back for her to confirm all the vendors and negotiate last minute details the week of the wedding, so I didn’t have to worry about it. I felt so well taken care of during the wedding, from having her closeby to fix my dress malfunctions, to the food she made sure we had waiting for us afterwards in our honeymoon cabin. She also recommended an excellent officiant when a friend of ours cancelled on us just a month beforehand. I can’t imagine trying to pull off such a perfect day without her. The only thing that maybe was a little off was we ended up with too much wine, but I guess that’s better than too little. Everyone had a blast and said it was the most fun and genuine wedding they had ever been too!
Elsa + Josh

If you’re looking for guidance in planning a beautiful, fun and stress free affair look no further! FIREFLY EVENT COMPANY should be your only stop. I knew after my first conversation with Jocelyn that she was not only highly capable and professional but had a true passion for delivering hand crafted experiences to her clients. My new husband and I were blown away by the level of care and follow through she demonstrated throughout our entire wedding process. We knew from jump that we were in great hands. From recommending vendors to helping us dream up creative and personal touches, Jocelyn hit home run after home run. Our guests were blown away by the finished product! Jocelyn and the FIREFLY team were indispensable while onsite the day of the wedding. Having them there allowed us to truly engage our guests and enjoy the moment!
Rebecca + Keith

I highly recommend Firefly to anyone getting married in the Asheville area. Beyond providing amazing support, Jocelyn and her team suggested amazing local vendors and ideas that truly made our wedding weekend special!
Chris + George

Summer was awesome! Our wedding had about 100 people so it took a lot of effort to make things run smoothly. During the whole wedding planning process she really kept me on-the-ball and helped me with the minuet details that I never would have thought about. This really complimented my laid back approach to things. She was there to call vendors with questions, and make sure all communication was on the table for everyone! On the day of the wedding she was there to really orchestrate the timing of things to make the wedding flow as it should without any hitches. There really is a lot of work that goes into such a huge event with so many people even though I didn’t want any formalities. Summer was such an asset to make the wedding FUN and not work on our special day! I highly recommend Firefly Event Company!!!
Marta + Will

Jocelyn and the entire team at Firefly Event Company were absolutely phenomenal! From the first meeting with Jocelyn through our entire wedding day and even afterwards, Jocelyn helped us navigate through the complexities of planning a wedding. We had a large group and as you can imagine, I was nervous about how to coordinate so everyone knew where to be and had the timeline for the day. The entire day was seamless and Jocelyn was there to ensure things went according to plan. After the wedding, I received compliments from guests on how Jocelyn was helpful in various ways. Throughout the year of planning the wedding, Jocelyn kept me on track on what needed to get done and when. Since we live out of town, we had arranged phone conferences and several visits to Asheville where she had set up meetings to make effective use of our time. She offered expertise on reputable vendors for us to interview so as to select those vendors that would meet our needs. She helped us create a day and an event that was meaningful to us and our families. I cannot recommend her/them enough!!
Jennifer + Ryan

From our very first conversation, I knew Jocelyn would be our wedding planner. She listened to our needs, offered great, sage advice, and also encouraged us to create a wedding day that reflected us. Every step of the way Firefly held our hand; from helping us find our magical venue to our amazing D.J., caterer, rental companies, etc. … And then coordinating all our vendors, creating our timeline and overseeing every last detail. I am (some may say) a control freak, but I was actually able to let go the day of my wedding because I knew we were in great hands. Jocelyn was a joy to work with and I always felt she had our best interest in mind. Firefly made our day come together and I am so grateful.
Elizabeth + Kristan

Being in the wedding business, myself, when I decide to elope, with just one weeks notice, I know I had to hire a professional, that would not only be able to take the ball and run, but that I trusted with such a special day and that is just what I found! We always felt, that our best interest was at heart and at the end of the day, we could not have asked, for a more, perfect and magical day. I would highly recommend this team, for any wedding or event, you won’t be disappointed!
Caprice and Deb

Jocelyn was (is!) awesome! She gave amazing vendor referrals, which was extremely helpful especially since I don’t live in North Carolina. She was available whenever I needed her prior to our wedding and on the days leading up to the wedding made me feel calm and reassured that it was going to be the best day ever! On the day of the wedding everything went smooth and I could not have dreamed of a more perfect reception. Thank you Jocelyn & Team at Firefly Event Company!! You ladies rock!
Kelly and Clayton

Jocelyn and Summer were instrumental in making our wedding a wonderful stress-free experience. From the initial planning stages– suggesting venues, planning menus, coordinating with the photographer, even lining up the musicians; there was a high degree of professionalism and attention to detail. Jocelyn was highly organized with timelines and logistics handled smoothly– our getting hitched went off without a hitch. Thanks for making our special day truly memorable and magical!
Bill and Brent

Jocelyn was so easy to work with! We hired her as our “day of” planner at the end of our planning after realizing what a chore it was to organize all of our vendors. She immediately stepped in and took over communication with our vendors. She worked with us at our rehearsal to get everyone where they needed to be and was integral to our wedding day going off without a hitch. Because of her, all vendors showed up on time and she even found a seamstress to fix my dress after the bustle was torn during our cocktail hour. My now-husband was very impressed with how she did an amazing job keeping everyone on schedule. Highly recommend hiring Firefly Events to coordinate your wedding!.
Kristen and Andrew

I can’t imagine what my wedding would have been like without Jocelyn’s help. From the the very beginning Jocelyn was there keeping me on task with everything I needed to do, and reminding me of what I didn’t need to worry about. Their experience with and knowledge of local vendors was an invaluable resource and made everything from picking out invitations to cake tastings a breeze. I woke up the day of our wedding without a care in the world knowing that they had everything under control. When I arrived at the venue and until the moment I left I was completely unaware of process and coordinating of putting everything together and was able to enjoy every second of that day completely in the moment. They are wonderful women and a fabulous team and I would (and have!) recommend them to everyone.
