We used Smash Events to cater our wedding and create the bouquets and boutonnieres. Ashley was amazing! The food was unbelievable and the flowers were exactly what we wanted! She and her staff were professional and courteous. Ashley listened and understood the vision we had for our wedding and was able to recommend other vendors and ideas along the way. She was always available and happy to answer questions. Our guests were extremely pleased with the food and all left the wedding happy and full! Wedding planning can be stressful and having a great person on your side is so important. Ashley made the wedding planning process easy and enjoyable for us and we would highly recommend Ashely and the Smash Events crew for any function!

Wonderful experience with SMASH
Ashley and the Smash Events Team did an EPIC job for our wedding. We worked with Smash for our food and flowers which was a big help as my husband and I planned our wedding while living in Europe.
I had almost decided to go with a different vendor but decided to email Ashley on a whim. She wrote back almost immediately! When I read the quote I couldn’t believe it. The quote was very affordable and had the add in bonus of a late night FOOD TRUCK at the end of the night. When I read that, I was SOLD!
As we were living so far away we had to make a food vendor choice before trying the food. Ashley and the Smash Events Team had already catered weddings at my venue Honeysuckle Hill and had awesome reviews online. I trusted my gut and we were not disappointed.
As we continued to plan our wedding I learned that the Smash Events Team could add in flowers. I figured it was a no brainer to bundle the two together and working with less people made it one less thing for us to worry about.
We were able to meet with Ashley in person during our very short visit during the December holidays. She was WONDERFUL! We had the best time at our tasting and the food was incredible. As Ashley had worked in the venue she was a great person to bounce ideas off of for my vision.
We just had our wedding a week ago. Everything was beautiful and delicious! The flowers were gorgeous really adding a romantic touch to the venue. The food was incredible and portions were HUGE! No one went hungry. I am still dreaming about the chicken and waffle bites. We also added in a s’mores bar which was a fun touch and I believe will be a lifelong memory for all the kiddos in attendance - they were loving it and gave them an exciting activity for the end the night.

This will be a long review so let me start by saying – AMAZING! YOU MUST HIRE THEM! Wedding planning can be stressful. You need people you can rely on and Smash Events is the way to go! I would get married every weekend if it meant I had Ashley and Dominique on my team!
Wedding Coordinator Review: We hired Dominique as our month-of coordinator. Having Dominique was hands down the BEST decision I ever made when hiring vendors. She went above and beyond my expectations! (And I should mention, my expectations were high since I used to be an event planner myself.) I must also mention, I had a vendor that was difficult to work with and Dominique made it seem so easy! She stepped in where other vendors were slacking, she stayed professional and handled difficult and stressful personalities well and she was my listening ear when I had to call her every day the week leading up to my wedding just to hear her say everything is fine! With Dominique on your team, you honestly don’t need to worry about a thing.
Florist Review: Ashley did an amazing job with my floral. All I had to do was show her my Pinterest board and she ran with it. It turned out better than I could have ever imagined and better than any photo on my Pinterest. The floral décor was by far my favorite décor at our wedding – I can’t tell you how many guests commented on my bouquet.
Food Review: We used Smash Events Mobile Kitchen (their food truck) for our rehearsal dinner. I’m still craving their Holy Mole Quesadilla. We had 36 people and I was so surprised at how quickly the guests received their food and how organized it ended up being. Not to mention, all my guests loved the food!

I had the pleasure of working with Smash Catering, and I was very pleasantly surprised by their quality of food, presentation, and how easy they were to work with. Communication was easy, their staff was extremely helpful and professional, and they did a fantastic job!
Working with Smash Events was an absolute dream! What an amazing team! They handle catering, florals and decor as well as planning for weddings. They can book independently from each other, but what a great combination of talents that work seamlessly together to ensure the entire event goes off without a hitch. We worked with Ashely and Dominique from start to finish and they were always on the ball and generally a step ahead which truly makes a huge impact on a wedding day. We highly recommend Smash Events and know you will not be disappointed!
