"Ashley was AMAZING! We hired Ashley as our day coordinator for our wedding in September. We had planned our wedding in about three months and had no idea how the actual day would turn out and Ashley came to the rescue. She was so professional and organized, and it felt as if she was coordinating her own wedding because of how perfect it went. Her husband even came and helped coordinate the event, and they were the perfect pair! We met a few times prior to the wedding; she came to the venue with us, coordinated the walkthrough with our bridesmaids and groomsmen, and went above and beyond! There is no way we would have been able to have such a memorable experience without her. Ashley coordinated with every vendor, had the timing down to a Tee, and allowed for my husband and I to not worry about anything at all. If we could get married again, I would hire her from start to finish. You need a wedding coordinator, especially a day coordinator if you want your wedding/event to flow without any trouble. Ashley is now who we refer to EVERYONE for weddings and events of any size. Thank you so much, Ashley, for such an amazing experience."
