Coordinates your crazy into perfection
I can’t say enough positive things about Ashley and her team. My best friend got married last Saturday, and without Ashley, things would never have gone as smooth. From the beginning of the planning process, Ashley was there to talk about and organize things you wouldn’t even think about organizing for your wedding. So many little things can come up and she takes the reigns and makes the whole process seamless. The bride planned for an outdoor ceremony at a beautiful venue but unfortunately the weather did not cooperate (which is said to be good luck) and it decided to rain during the ceremony. Ashley and her team rushed to move everything inside without bringing stress to the bride or anyone in the wedding. We trusted her and her team and they did not disappoint. She was there the entire day to make sure the bride and groom didn’t have to worry about anything. It may not have been my wedding but I was along side the bride during the whole process and I know for sure that when I get married one day I will not think twice about hiring Ashley and her team to help coordinate. If you’re still uncertain about needing a day of coordinator or a full blown wedding planner, this is your sign to HIRE ASHLEY. You will be more than ecstatic that you did. Thanks Ashley, for everything. ❤️❤️Sent on 10/13/2019

My son married the girl of his dreams and Ashley (Ash Events) made sure they had the wedding of their dreams. We didn't have a huge budget but she made sure we got the most for our money. She held our hand during the planning stage and then took all the pressure off of us on the day of. We were free to enjoy the best day ever!Sent on 02/20/2019
