Mountain Top Wedding
After following Poppati Events on social media I knew I wanted to hire Ashley right away when we got engaged. We hired Ashley for the full package and it was money well spent! Ashley helped us have the mountain top wedding of our dreams Ashley is the type of wedding planner that will put her whole heart into the wedding planning. She got to know our personalities and she knew what was very important to us and went above and beyond in those areas. Ashley wants to take the stress away from couples as much as possible and if and when wedding vendors can get tough to work with, she will do everything she has to negotiate what is right for her couples. Ashley was available 24/7 to talk through decisions, ideas, anything and everything you could think of. What I loved about our wedding the most was how personalized it was to us as a couple. All of the wedding guests commented on the personal touches and Ashley helped make that happen. She will ensure that your wedding is unique to you as a couple and she will use her expert experience to suggest the best solutions to you as a couple. I am so glad that I hired Ashley as our wedding planner as it was so helpful to have a neutral party give you expert advice while also letting you as a couple feel empowered to make your wedding exactly how you envision it. Ashley will make sure you do not have to do a thing on your wedding day and we completely got to enjoy the day. Her husband is also an angel and they make an incredible duo when they work together on the wedding day.
We are so grateful for all of the hard work Ashley put into our wedding. THANK YOU!!

Professional and very detailed Wedding Coordinator!
At the Hewing Hotel, we had the pleasure of one of our wedding couples selecting Ashley to be their wedding coordinator. Ashley was extremely professional, organized, and helpful in ensuring all of the details for the wedding ceremony and reception were everything the couple had hoped for. She was amazingly responsive and detail oriented when we needed help in how to best execute the event to her/our client's expectations. The day was perfect and Ashley was a dream to work with.Sent on 11/18/2019

Ashley is the best of the best!
Ashley made my wedding day the most unforgettable experience I could have ever imagined. She really does her research on vendors and comes up with the most unique and awesome ideas to make your day truly special and reflective of your style. The day of she handled everything so all I had to do was enjoy and soak it in. THANK YOU ASHLEY!Sent on 11/14/2019

Poppati Events provides flawless yet personal planning services
There aren’t enough positive words I can use to describe Ashley. From the moment I began speaking with her I knew I needed to have her as my month of wedding planner. She was caring, attentive, kind, and maybe most importantly when planning a wedding, she was honest and transparent.
During the week of our wedding we were filled with nerves and excitement but when we walked into the rehearsal and saw Ashley’s smiling face greeting us our nerves instantly began to fade away. She truly made us feel at ease during one of the biggest moments of our lives.
On the day of our wedding Ashley flawlessly managed to execute on every detail and ensured we were on schedule and where we needed to be when we needed to be there while simultaneously pumping us up and cheering us on along the way. We truly could not have done it without her! One example to highlight this is that during all of the wedding busyness I (the bride) completely forgot our table numbers at the hotel (a good 25 minutes away). Ashley was informed of this just prior to the ceremony start time and by the time the reception started there were beautiful table numbers placed neatly on every table without either of us being aware!
We are both so thankful for Ashley because she allowed us, our families, and guests to truly enjoy the celebration. Having our parents be able to be truly present with us on our wedding day versus having to worry about day of details was extremely
important to us and Ashley ensured that happened! Our only regret is that we didn’t book Ashley for the entire planing period because she made it that calming and enjoyable! As I write this I am currently dreaming up parties I can host so that I can work with Ashley again...post-wedding party? Our cat’s 5th birthday party?
Thank you for everything Ashley!
With love, The Book’s

Absolutely Amazing Wedding Planner
Ashley from Poppati is an incredible wedding planner. It was clear from day one that she knew exactly what she was doing. She was very professional, dependable and helpful. She provided us with all the best vendors and made our wedding a dream come true. The services she offered were definingly worth the money. When our wedding day final came, everyone around us kept commenting on how calm we were. That’s because we had full trust in Ashley to execute all the details to perfection. We received many wonderful comments from friends and family on how incredibly beautiful everything was. Our wedding was fantastic and the best day of our lives! We highly recommend Ashley to anyone that wants to have a fabulous event.Sent on 06/15/2019

Undeniably the best
I'm a local Minneapolis Photographer and I felt compelled to write a review about Ashley. She is hands down the best planner I've ever had the pleasure of working with! As a photographer, I see a lot of what goes on behind the scenes on a wedding day. Having a planner that's entirely dedicated to the couple and making their day flawless seems like a given, but I often see planners that tend to get away with the bare minimum and that I hardly see throughout the course of the day. Ashley is ANYTHING but that. The way I see her show up for her clients is truly unique. She constantly has her hands wet and is involved in every facet and decision. I've seen fires arise and she handles them with grace and conviction. She's also has a level of creativity that is unprecedented. If she's involved in full-service planning, expect to see MAGIC! Something that you won't just find on Pinterest or an inspiration board already curated by a planner. She's quite simply amazing! You'd be foolish not to trust her with your planning needs :)Sent on 11/09/2019
Poppati Events's reply:Trish! Way to make me shed a tear! Thank you for taking the time to write such a heartfelt review! It means the word to me to hear this coming from someone who works with so many wedding planners and is such a well seasoned wedding professional! Unlimited gratitude for all your kind words, THANK YOU! xo

The most incredible event planner!
I could go on all day about how amazing Poppati Events is! Ashley is one of the sweetest people I have ever met and is hands down my favorite planner I have ever worked with! She’s the perfect combination of professionalism mixed with someone who you would want to be your best friend! We’ve worked together for multiple weddings/events and something that I’ve always noticed and admired about her is her attention to detail. She puts her heart and soul into the events she plans for her clients and is able to create designs that represent each couples unique style and relationship perfectly. She is so thoughtful to everyone around her and always makes sure that everything is running smoothly and that everyone is taken care of. If you are thinking about hiring Ashley for your event, I can promise you that your expectations will be exceeded and it will be the best decision you ever make! I met her through the wedding industry but now consider her a lifelong friend!Sent on 05/09/2020

Trip of a lifetime!
Working with Poppati Events to plan our dream honeymoon was a flawless experience from start to finish. A few months after my husband and I got married, we were stressed out because we wanted to plan an international honeymoon trip but had no idea where to start and no time to plan it. When we met with Ashley and her husband, Adam, for the first time, they were genuinely as excited to celebrate our recent wedding and to plan our dream honeymoon as we were to experience it. They completely customized our trip based on our feedback, style and preferences. After our initial meeting, they provided a tailored, detailed itinerary for our trip to Italy and Croatia with everything included from air travel, connections, transportation, hotel accommodations, restaurant recommendations, packing lists and unforgettable excursions (shout out to our wine and oyster tour mmmm). Ashley & Adam proactively stayed in touch with us as the trip grew closer. When the trip arrived, we felt like Jay and Bey just showing up to the airport with everything already planned and taken care of Their attention to detail was apparent throughout the trip which ultimately allowed my husband and me to enjoy each other without worrying about any details. As we sit here writing this review (complete with Croatian wine from our honeymoon, to boot!), we’d like to send out a heartfelt cheers to you, Poppati Events…thank you for crafting such a meaningful experience for us that we will never forget xoSent on 11/18/2019

Ashley is amazing!
Ashley is amazing! She was so helpful and great to work with. She helped me stay organized and think through all of the details. During the reception, she helped make sure everything looked beautifully and went so smoothly. We could not have done it without her! Ashley is so great to work with and we will definitely work with her again!Sent on 11/05/2019
Poppati Events's reply:Hi Tai! THANK YOU so very much for writing such a thoughtful review! I am so grateful for every kind word and that I was able to be a part of your special day! xo

I had attended several weddings where the day seemed unorganized or not thoroughly planned through with the small details. Which in turn became my greater fear about my wedding day. Ashley was such a dream to have on board through the planning process and executing the day of! We had several discussions of planning, and covered details I wouldn't have considered. She was amazing working with all the wedding party, parents and the vendors. I don't believe I asked a single question the day of, because Ashley had such great control and organization on coordinating with the vendors and making sure everything stuck to the schedule (the greatest gift to a bride, peace of mind). She helped make the venue absolutely STUNNING, and I honestly couldn't have imagined a more perfect day. I had so many guests compliment over the organization and how beautiful the day was, I believe we were all blown away. Thank you again Poppati Weddings & Events for all your hard work and expertise!Sent on 11/07/2017

Best planner ever!!!
Tommy and I are so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Ashley at Poppati Events while planning our wedding! She managed to bring our vision to life and made our special day an unforgettable memory we will cherish forever!Sent on 08/12/2019
Ashley was incredible throughout the entire planning process. She listened to us, took our vision and gave us the most beautiful wedding we could have ever imagined! She respected our input and added her gifted designer eyes to our ideas. Whenever we had a question or needed guidance, she always responded quickly and assured us she had everything under control. We received incredible feedback from family and friends on how beautiful and perfect every detail was. Ashley made us feel like family from the start and made sure we were taken care of throughout the entire process! She has a way of providing those “special touches” every bride dreams of and went above and beyond at every opportunity. I would definitely recommend her to anyone in need of a wedding planner, she knows what she’s doing!
Ashley is not only a top-notch wedding planner but an absolute joy to be around. Throughout this process, Ashley, and her husband Adam have become very close friends. Everything was wonderful, from beginning to end. We cannot thank Ashley and Adam enough for making our day truly amazing!!
Poppati Events's reply:Lindsay! Thank you so much for such a wonderful review! I loved every min of planning your beautiful destination wedding weekend in Banff, Canada. I wish we could do it all over again! xo
Jill · Married on 02/04/2017
Hiring Ashley to plan my wedding was the first and best thing I did when I started planning my wedding. She took care of everything and gave me the reassurance every step of the way... all the way down to a timeline of when meetings with her would take place and when decisions had to happen. I never had to research a thing and our wedding was beyond perfect. We decided to have a destination wedding in Old San Juan, PR and I'd do it again and again if I could! To be able to spend the week/weekend with all of your closest family and friends is so rare and special, and I actually got to enjoy it. As a planner in a completely different line of work, I always thought I would plan my whole wedding from start to finish, but to actually enjoy the process was never expected. Ashley made that happen and I would highly recommend her to anyone.Sent on 11/09/2017
Poppati Events's reply:Jill! Thank you so so much for all your sweet words and taking the time to review me! It means the world! I will never forget that gorgeous wedding weekend in Puerto Rico and how beautiful you 2 looked!😍 such a dream. So honored to be your wedding planner! Wish we could go back!♥️

I have recommended Ashley at Poppati Events to several friends, including my best friend who ended up using her for her own wedding. I think the best and most authentic review is in the recommendation emails that I write about her! Here is one example of the many of have written:
"OK, so Ashley is who we used for our wedding- she is fantastic. She is a queen when it comes to the details, is ruthless about negotiating contracts and getting you a good price (no joke) and has done this many times so you are in very good hands with her. I will say that her negotiating our contracts paid for her fee in a matter of months… so if you are considering getting help there, this is where she really shines… and I know you can hire her for JUST that piece, which is a great option. Also, not sure if you are considering a destination, but she is totally comfortable doing that and has done it many times. You should check out her Instagram to get an idea of what her “styling” can look like. Her attention to detail is impeccable and she is super resourceful when it comes bringing your vision to life within your budget. Did I mention she is adorable? She is super fun to work and it is easy to see that she truly loves what she does."
I will continue to recommend Ashley to anyone who needs support in planning a wedding or event!
You can find some photos of how she really brought our mountain wedding to life. We absolutely could not have done this with her!

One of a kind experience with a top notch planner!
We can't recommend Ashley at Poppati Events enough! Initially, we thought we could get away with working exclusively with the wedding coordinator at the venue, but after a few meetings, it became clear that that was a bad idea. The universe introduced us to Ashley, and she took over ever single detail seamlessly. The further we got into the process, and especially in those last few weeks, the more grateful I was for her expertise. We had a general outline of what we wanted, and Ashley took that and turned it into the absolute wedding of our dreams. Our guests still talk about how beautiful it was and so perfectly executed - and it is really ALL to Ashley's credit. To top it all off she is a kind and caring soul - checking in to make sure WE were doing okay throughout the entire process. 5 star person, 5 star planner! Thank you, Ashley!!Sent on 03/05/2020

I hired Poppati events to handle all of our decor and day of services. Living in an era where we have Pinterest weddings to live up to is a lot of pressure and Ashley delivered everything I could have asked for in regards to decor and more! Just having her deal with all of the floral arrangements was priceless and it was so nice to have someone else scouting out all the little details to make our day special. She was most invaluable though when it came to our wedding weekend. We planned a long distance wedding in a Colorado ski village and the venue event coordinator did a poor job (lacked communication skills, constantly made mistakes or forgot details we told him we wanted, etc.) and without Ashley I would have been running around the day of the wedding trying to Fix all of his mistakes. She pulled everything together, set up all of the decor, dealt with all the last minute issues and didn't involve me once - allowing me to be fully present that morning with friends and family as we got ready. I cannot say enough about how great it was to have her coordinating our wedding. She's a must hire - especially if you are doing a destination wedding!Sent on 11/12/2017
