BEST DECISION EVER!!! First and foremost- Ashley is the greatest human being I know. I don’t think I can find the words to explain how truly fantastic Ashley is. Ashley and I worked together for 15 months planning my wedding. She genuinely took the time to get to know me and my husband. So much so that when I went to show her my “ideal” theme of black and white, she showed me a design template of a room full of color because she knew I would love it. At that moment, I knew I was in great hands. It was EXACTLY what I wanted and I didn’t even know it!! From there she was my life savor. She thought of everything before I even could. She photoshops chairs into diagrams if you need more of a visual. She handled budget, vendors, welcome boxes, design elements, etc. The best part of it all- she’s a best friend when you need it. Having The Graceful Host be my planner was easily the best, and easiest, choice of my entire wedding. If you can book Ashley, do it ASAP! You will never regret it.Sent on 04/10/2018

Ashley went above and beyond to make my dream vision a reality! From the first time we talked, she totally understood my vision and never stopped advocating for that! During the planning process, I lived out of town, so I could only meet with vendors on brief visits home to Charlotte. However, Ashley helped me connect with vendors and coordinate schedules so that I could meet with vendors in person. She was also incredibly flexible and made sure that whether I was in town or a plane-ride away, I was always a part of the process. In the weeks leading up to the wedding and on the day of, Ashley was a calming presence and truly ran the show. The day I got married, I didn't have a single thing to worry about because Ashley ensured that all went smoothly. With her running the show, my husband and I were totally present and got to enjoy every moment stress-free. We loved having Ashley and would highly recommend her!Sent on 10/09/2015

Ashley is a Graceful Host. Her weddings are always on time, and flawless. She does a good job matching the right vendor for the couples needs. I've always heard positive feedback and reviews of her planning and coordination. You definitely need to speak to Ashley before you make a decision. Rev. Tod Coles Big Love Weddings
The Graceful Host- two words: HIRE. HER. Ashley is personable, full of incredible design ideas and inspiration, has the ability to bring her creative eye to any style of wedding/couple, and as a photographer, I really adore how she makes a wedding day run so smoothly. I believe in a beautiful connection between a bride and groom, and when a couple isn't worried about the little bumps in the road of a wedding day, or if we're keeping on track with a timeline, they can relax and enjoy the day. Your day will be amazing with The Graceful Host- and you'll have your pictures to prove it!
