    Southern Hospitality is just that!

    Ashley was absolutely fantastic! We were late to the day of coordinator game, but with a recommendation from our baker, we decided to go with it! Thankfully she was available for the date of our wedding. She worked with me on the things that I was looking for assistance with and took so much stress away from the big day. On top of that, she was so so sweet. My cake stand was unstable and she came in with the save with one of her own! The team is also so great as well, I corresponded with another person from SH about other vendors. It was 100% the best decision to hire her.

    Ashley is incredible!

    We hired Ashley as our full-service planner and it was truly the BEST wedding decision we made besides decided to marry each other! Ashley is so organized, responsive, helpful, and creative. We were planning an Outer Banks wedding while being located in California, and having never been to OBX or our venue before, and we could not have done it without her. Every vendor recommendation was phenomenal. Her knowledge of the area, weather, venue... every detail, was so incredibly helpful. Besides planning & coordination, one of the biggest things we wanted from a full-service planner was the wedding design, as we're folks who know what we like but have no idea how to create it, and she took a few photos we gave her and created a wedding more beautiful than we could have ever imagined! As a cherry on top, Ashley is so fun to work with! She's super easy to chat with, helps keep everything exciting and fun, and stays calm no matter what happens. We had an outdoor reception planned and, despite perfectly sunny days for weeks before and after our date, ended up with a full-blown storm on our big day. Ashley saw it coming and had a plan B ready to go that was just as beautiful and perfect as I'm sure plan A would have been, and she executed it seamlessly. I could go on forever with great things to say about her. Ashley, if you're reading this, thank you so much for making our day perfect and stress-free! To anyone reading this review in search of their planner - look no further! Ashley is the best!

    You NEED Southern Hospitality as your planner/day-of!

    Ashley is the absolute BEST! We hired her for our day-of coordination and she truly exceeded our expectations. She was always so calm, organized and supportive throughout the entire planning process. I emailed her constant questions but she was always so responsive and helpful. When I told her I was stressed about something, she would always reassure me that ‘xyz’ was going to be fine and all would work out. She always knew the right thing to say. Planning a wedding states away (we are from Indiana) should be stressful, but Ashley helped make it stress-free! She gave great vendor recommendations and every vendor said we were “in great hands” when I told them Ashley was our day-of.
    Fast forward to the day of the wedding, she came in and took control! Everything she did was flawless and her attention to detail is incredible. A lot of my guests even commented how impressed they were by Ashley! Not to mention, she’s such a great person and was so much fun to work with. She even brought my husband and I appetizers when we were taking pictures on the beach during cocktail hour - the sweetest gesture! She boxed up the top tier of our cake, set up all our personal & rental items for the reception, brought everything back into the event home after the reception, bustled my dress, designed the layout of the reception…. I could go on and on about how amazing she is. Thank you SO MUCH, Ashley! Our wedding wouldn’t have been what it was without you. We are so grateful for you! To anyone reading this review, PLEASE hire Southern Hospitality for all your planning/day-of needs - I promise you won’t regret it!
