This chic emerald and white shoot is the reflection of the efforts and creativity of some of greatest vendors in North East Kansas. Along Came Abby’s creative vision and design inspired a shoot that we couldn’t be happier to share. 

Were were thrilled to shoot in the Jayhawk Club’s newly renovated dining room and bridal room. Melissa Porter, of Melissa Sigler Photography worked her magic capturing the talents of Amber Vest’s craft (of beauty by Amber Vest) as she created a stunning look for our bride. Mark’s Jewelers of Lawrence KS.,provided stunning rose gold & white gold pave diamond earnings, a rose gold engagement and wedding band and a rose gold and diamond bangle bracelet. All of the pretties looked chic in front of our boxwood backdrop.

Joining Forces

The Sisters behind Along Came Abby


Twenty nine years ago our amazing partnership began… when Abby was born.
It’s seems that we have been planning events since the days that our Barbies had extravagant weddings on the steps of our family home in Lawrence, KS. Our sister team offers the best of personalization, organization, planning and creativity. We work together to ensure your day is perfectly yours and stress free.

Abby’s love for weddings and events started as a child, grew during her college classes and helped her to start Along Came Abby in 2013. What started as only wedding planning has now grown to weddings, events and our most popular service: Full Service Rentals!

Libby joined the team in 2015 helping wherever Abby could use an extra set of hands and instantly loved the excitement of the day and realized that this line of work was something she she loved to do.

Now, in 2018 we have teamed up for over 2 years of weddings and events and are excited to announce that we are officially partners in the Event planning and full service rental

We would like to thank our amazing support team, our families, for helping us make this dream a reality.
