run don't walk

BOOK THEM BOOK THEM BOOK THEM. Ashley and her team have been my saving grace from the moment I was engaged through the wedding day. Seriously I could not have done this without them! They were there to handle ALL of the logistical aspects of the day so that I could truly sit back and enjoy my wedding. So many times throughout the planning process I would have a thought and by the time I asked Ashley about it, of course, she was already on it. I wanted a champagne tower instead of a wall now? Perfect she’s on board and is already emailing the rental company. The wedding theme suddenly took on a French theme? She’s already got a list of light blue patterned chairs for me to choose from. I could brag on her design taste and ability to execute an idea to perfection for forever but what is really special about Ashley and her team is the fact that they truly become your friend and want you to succeed. It was having someone who was with me in the trenches, always in my corner, cheering us on and encouraging that no matter what it was going to be the best day ever (spoiler alert- it was). And that’s just for before the wedding. Day of? These queens were a sight to see. Literally one time I held out my hand and asked “Oh where did I put my bouquet?” and before I completed the question, Ashley was placing it in my hand. Everything ran so smoothly- and if that wasn’t the case- I would’ve never known! They made sure that we weren’t worrying about a thing! The day was absolutely perfect, and everyone involved in the process knows it could not have happened without Ashley and her team. I’m so very lucky I randomly came across her account on Tik Tok and reached out. I found the absolute best wedding planner and a lifelong friend. Thanks for everything, Ashley!!

Ashley and Hamilton Events were Incredible!

My wife and I decided to work with Ashley after a month or two of attempting to plan our wedding by ourselves - it was the best decision we made in our wedding planning process. We started off unorganized and unsure about how to begin. Within a week of working with Ashley, we had a timeline set, an outline of what we wanted the wedding to look like, and wedding planning suddenly seemed much less stressful.
First and foremost, Ashley was the most kind and approachable wedding planner that we met with when deciding on who to hire, and she continued to be a pleasure to work with throughout the entire process. Never did I feel like I was working with a “boss,” but as a friend who just happened to be incredible at planning weddings. At the same time, she made sure to stay the course and not let us get behind with any tasks that may have been due that week, which was a pretty regular occurrence.
In terms of how she kept us on track, the organizational tool that she set us up with was perfect. My wife and I were both given logins and assigned all of the tasks that we had to get done by our wedding date, with due dates throughout the months of when things had to get done. It honestly took all of the stress out of thinking that I may forget something, or that I was doing something too late, or that I was overlooking some detail, because Ashley had everything covered on that website.
As the day got closer, I was expecting to get more and more nervous/frazzled, but again it seemed like Ashley just had a way of absorbing that stress, making the big day that much more enjoyable. Whenever there was some small detail, such as which shade of blue we would like a plate, she would simply present us with options, we would pick, and she would take care of ordering/organizing everything else. Taking us to the actual wedding day, Ashley and her team had the entire itinerary, setup, breakdown, tips - whatever you could think of - all handled. My wife and I did not have to think about a single thing that day, other than enjoying ourselves.
Without a doubt, if I had to go back 1 year and redo it, I would not think twice about hiring Ashley as our wedding planner. Wedding planning can be complicated, arduous and very time consuming which can really bear down on a couple during a time they want to be able to cherish. With Ashley, we had none of that, just a wonderful experience that we will remember for the rest of our lives.

The best I could have asked for

If I could give more than 5 stars I absolutely would! I found Ashley on TikTok and was instantly drawn to her videos. Lucky for me I got engaged not long after and called her up. Being a project manager as a profession I didn't need help planning but I needed someone I could trust to take the reins on the day to not be bothered and Ashley and her team did JUST THAT. It's 2 weeks after my wedding and people are still telling me how seamless the wedding was and I felt it. My now husband and I didn't have to worry about 1 thing. Ashley and her team handled it all on the day of. We were on time and things happened as swimmingly as we could have hoped for! If you need a wedding or event planner or event management HIRE HER!! You won't regret it!

“Event planning started as my hobby, and then it became a business established in 2020. I aspire to organize every element to reflect your vision. I am that extroverted, caffeine-fueled, Chick-Fil-A-obsessed gal that one day decided to chase after her dreams. I would love the opportunity to help bring your story to life. PS - if you watch The Office, Parks and Rec, or Friends… we will be sure to hit it off!”

“I’m here to be your go to gal on your big day - from making all the beyond the scenes run flawlessly, to making sure you have the day of your dreams! When not wedding planning, you’ll find me sipping on lots of coffee, playing with my puppy, Poppy, or going to all the best local food options Cola has to offer (I’m looking at you, Bourbon + Cantina)!”

“I am ready to help each bride make their wedding day the best day of their life, one for the books! Exceptional attention to detail and the ability to keep calm under pressure are just a few traits I value most as a wedding coordinator. At home, you can find me singing to my cat and reminiscing on videos from my college a cappella days (where Ashley and I actually met)!”
