"It is very hard to summarize in a review what sort of job Ashley did planning and designing our wedding. We are New Yorkers, planning a wedding in Pawleys Island, with busy travel schedules. You would think it would be stressful, but it was NOT A PROBLEM.
Step by step we went and built a wedding from the ground up (literally, the ground...our gorgeous venue provided just a tent and bathrooms!). 250 guests, mostly out of towners, a big band, tons of vendors...nothing was too much.
By the time we got to the month before our wedding, my answer was "I trust you, whatever you think." That included flowers, place settings, you name it. Her design skills are perfect, she gets a vision, and she can handle ANYTHING.
For our wedding, we imagined a beautiful fall day. The weekend of our wedding was 30 degrees, 25 MPH winds, and monsoon type rain! Not a problem for Ashley. She took care of everything, from our outdoor ceremony, to catering tents, to photography, this girl can PIVOT!
Everyone keeps on saying that we embraced the rain, but no it wasn't that... we had a perfect planner :) She made our day perfect and stress free. THANK YOU

"Hiring Ashley as our wedding planner was HANDS DOWN the best decision we made throughout the planning process. Despite living out of state and planning a destination wedding, on top of all of the curveballs and changes due to Covid, we were NEVER stressed!! We knew we were in the best hands with Ashley and could trust all of her advice, recommendations, and honest opinions. She is beyond professional, passionate at what she does, has fantastic relationships with the best vendors, and made us feel comfortable and at ease from start to finish. She answered every one of my constant texts within minutes, and I knew I was able to count on her for everything. Though our original wedding plan had changed, Ashley and her team made sure everything came together perfectly and the day of the wedding was a dream. They work their magic to keep things moving and made my husband and I feel so special and taken care of. They were there immediately with a tide pen, glass of champagne, safety pin for a broken dress, they had it all covered! It's difficult to sum up in words, but we love Ashley and her team so much and I truly have no clue what I would have done without her!!"
"I can’t say enough positive things about Ashley and her team. My best friend got married last Saturday, and without Ashley, things would never have gone as smooth. From the beginning of the planning process, Ashley was there to talk about and organize things you wouldn’t even think about organizing for your wedding. So many little things can come up and she takes the reigns and makes the whole process seamless. The bride planned for an outdoor ceremony at a beautiful venue but unfortunately the weather did not cooperate (which is said to be good luck) and it decided to rain during the ceremony. Ashley and her team rushed to move everything inside without bringing stress to the bride or anyone in the wedding. We trusted her and her team and they did not disappoint. She was there the entire day to make sure the bride and groom didn’t have to worry about anything. It may not have been my wedding but I was along side the bride during the whole process and I know for sure that when I get married one day I will not think twice about hiring Ashley and her team to help coordinate. If you’re still uncertain about needing a day of coordinator or a full blown wedding planner, this is your sign to HIRE ASHLEY. You will be more than ecstatic that you did. Thanks Ashley, for everything"
Where do I even begin?! I am not sure there are even enough words to explain how grateful I am for Ashley and the entire Ash Events team. From the very first phone call with Ashley, I knew she was a perfect fit for us and for executing our vision for our wedding. Not only was my wedding everything I could have ever wanted and dreamed of, it went above and beyond that. Throughout the entire process, Ashley was informative and made sure to educate us on the wedding planning process so we would know and understand each step in the process. She was always available to answer my many questions as well! I always knew I wanted to get married at The William Aiken House in Charleston, and Ashley and her team were so knowledgeable about vendors and made the planning process so easy! I was so happy to be able to use the best vendors from the Grand Strand and Charleston areas! Each detail was executed to perfection, and our wedding day went so smoothly! Unfortunately, our officiant became ill before our ceremony, and with ease, Ashley (yes, she is ordained) stepped in and officiated our wedding with only 3 minutes notice! No one could even tell she wasn’t the one supposed to be officiating and many guests complimented on how well she did. Ashley is truly a professional. I also cannot leave out Alex and Chelsea. These ladies were so amazing! They went above and beyond and ensured everyone was at ease and had everything they wanted or needed! From fetching my mom a Diet Coke early that morning while we were getting ready to ensuring Josh and I as well as my family were able to taste everything from our day, we were WELL taken care of! I can never thank these ladies enough! From the very beginning, Ashley knew I wanted our day to be unique, beautiful, elegant, and memorable, and I STILL have guests complimenting on the amazing food, decor, florals, band, details, and venue. Some have even said our wedding was the best they have ever attended! None of this would have been possible without Ashley and her amazing team as well as our outstanding vendors. If you plan to get married in the Grand Strand area, Charleston area, or beyond, Ashley and her team are the ONLY ones for the job. I am forever grateful! Thank you Ashley and the Ash Events team for making our day absolutely perfect!
