Proposal of my dreams!
I cannot say enough about Ashley and her crew! Or why it is so important to use an event specialist to plan a proposal. Ash Events made sure that my partner and I had the day of our dreams. It was a stress free day, no clean up, and absolutely beautiful. Having Ash Events to assist with the proposal helped ensure that my partner was completely surprised, I could not have done it without their services. I recommend this vendor for any of your events and I cannot wait to start the wedding planning process with them. 10/10Sent on 07/06/2020

Hire her - you won't regret it!
Where to start. Well, I was one of those brides who thought they could plan everything herself with the help of a few friends. But then all my plans were turned upside down when my first venue, Noah's Events, closed due to bankruptcy. Ashley had found out what had happened through my maid of honor (who works with her in the industry) and reached out to me to help me change my plans 8 months before my wedding. My fiancé and I had decided to hire her and THANK GOD because she assured me everything was going to be okay. She helped me find a new venue and kept me on track throughout this whole mishap! Then COVID happened. Ashley had helped me through 3 different variations of my wedding and although my wedding wasn't what I expected, it was everything I could've wanted it to be and more! Ashley was amazing throughout this whole process. She had quick response times through text and phone calls through out the planning process. She kept me on track with what needed to be done on my end. The day of the wedding I arrived to the venue early and I started setting up cocktail tables with decorations. Ashley walked in and saw me decorating and basically yelled at me to go to the bridal suite to relax and that her and her team has everything under control! The day of she was very flexible -- some timing didn't work out due to another vendor so she was able to move things around to make up for it! I didn't have a single worry that day because I knew that Ashley had it taken care of. To any bride who thinks they don't need a wedding planner -- THINK AGAIN! I felt so stress free the day of my wedding, which is something I didn't think was possible. Neither I or my wedding party had to touch a single decoration that day because Ashley and her crew were on it! I am forever grateful for Ashley and all that she did to make our wedding day absolutely amazing! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!Sent on 09/23/2020
