"IDK, Ask ASH"

Hi! I'm Ashley Pate Newkirk, founder of Ash Events.

I'm here to create an iconic experience that not only eliminates stress from wedding planning, but also enhances memories for your families & friends to share forever.

When I am not planning weddings, you can find me with Chipotle in hand, looking for a chance to sing Karaoke or strolling the aisles of Target. I am a natural born problem solver, extremely talented at ordering takeout, and I love to travel! 

I am here for you every step of the way.  I will guide you to create the wedding of your dreams all within a budget that is comfortable for you. On your wedding day your only job is to enjoy time with your loved ones.  With an "I don't know.. ask Ash" mentality on repeat.  Take the leap, I got you!

Ash Events was the best decision we made with wedding planning. We are from Boston and chose to get married in Charleston, SC. Planning a wedding so far away during a pandemic was so much easier than I was anticipating thanks to Ashley. Throughout the entire process Ashley was so communicative and detailed with each meeting. The wedding rehearsal and day of prep by Ashley and her team was nothing short of amazing. They were so attentive and helpful throughout the entire day. They had everything put together and it was better than I imagined. I can not recommend enough using Ash Events for weddings or any other parties. I can not recommend Ashley enough!
