We curate weddings that tell the love story of the couple through artful design and logistical storytelling. We are a wedding planning team that believes every day, not just a wedding day, deserves to be celebrated and we do our best to inspire joy throughout the planning process.
Editor’s Note: for this Best Wedding Planners in Phoenix Spotlight, we had the pleasure of interviewing Ashley, from Your Jubilee.

Why do couples love working with you?
Couples like working with our team because like any wedding planning team we are knowledgable about the industry, but more importantly, we build joy into the wedding planning experience. We serve as a trusted partner and friend through the planning process. And honestly, our team is full of rad humans.
What do you love most about being a wedding planner?
It’s truly an incredible honor to be part of such a special time in a couple’s lives. We get to create an event that is a curation of the couples love story, finding unique ways to infuse little pieces of them into a day that will live on in their memories and the memory of their family and friends for a lifetime,
How did you get started?
We have known each other since college when we met as members of the same sorority. About 6 years ago we started talking about how much we enjoyed planning our respective weddings. With our shared background in large scale event planning, Meagan in corporate and fashion events and Ashley in nonprofit and community events, we were thrilled by the level of personalization weddings allow. Finally, over happy hour, we decided to take the leap and start our own company.
It took us about two years to build enough business to leave our full-time jobs, but once we opened up space for it, our business tripled in one year. Now we employ 5 additional planners and two event assistants. Because of our large team, we can accommodate about 40 events a year and up to 3 events in a weekend.
What 3 words best describe your company?
Joyful, Authentic, and FUN!
What is your favorite part of the wedding planning process?
We love bringing in unique elements to every couples event. We do this by really getting to know each couple’s love story and listening for the small fun things that they and their guest will appreciate on their big day. If it is naming their signature drink after there dog with custom stir sticks that look like there dog silhouette, to incorporating the bride’s grandmothers pearls into her bouquet, we like to find subtle ways to make an even uniquely theirs. Honestly, our favorite part is when the planning is all done and we get to see our clients react to seeing everything come together.
What budget range do you cater to?
It’s our goal to cater to as vast a budget range as we can. We offer planners at varying levels to accommodate budgets from $35,000 to $175,000+. We believe that at the very least every couple should have someone to fine-tune the details of their day, but we love when we get to really dig into the design and create something that exceeds the vision they had in their heads.
Trying not to tear up as I write this because I am just SO thankful for Ashley & the whole jubilette team. I knew instantly after looking over their website they were the wedding planners of my dream. After meeting them, we vibed instantly and I had a huge sense of relief knowing that these wonderful girls were going to make my dream come true. Every step of the planning process was FUN and EXCITING! These girls literal professionals. They know everything about this industry and have SOOOOO many contacts. I wanted a lot of entertainment at my wedding, and Ashley instantly knew who to reach out to make that happen! From donuts to beer donkeys, to photo booths, to magicians, everything was perfect. No matter what came up, Ashley was there for me to explain everything, come up with a plan B, and somehow make that plan B better than the original plan!
Ashley was so dedicated to my wedding, and I’m so blessed to have had her there by my side on the most important and special day of my life. It was my dream wedding. It was perfection. It was filled with love. It was filled with fun. All. Thanks. To. Her. I’ve been thinking of other events I can have JUST so we can work together again (for real though Ash, you are that amazing hahaha). If you’re looking for a team of incredible women to put on the most fabulous event ever, Your Jubilee is your event planner. Hands down best in the industry. Also, check out their killer podcast because that’s also amazing. Ashley, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our dream wedding come true. It was the first day of our forever and it was magical. We had the time of our lives!

I said over and over again during my wedding planning process “how do people do this without a planner?!”. Hiring Your Jubilee was the best decision I could have made. Meagan and Ashley are not only amazing people but amazing planners – they made my dream wedding come true and on a tight budget! Throughout the whole process, anytime I had a question they were quick and super thorough in their responses. With vendors, they knew what questions to ask (and would ask things that I hadn’t even thought about). They also knew what vendors were trustworthy, good and worth your money. All the little details and ceremony/reception decor that I wouldn’t have even thought of or didn’t think mattered, they did and knew it would be impactful and help make my vision come to life. They had ideas on how I can save money but also told me where it was worth it to spend a little more. They didn’t steer me wrong the whole process.
The timeline they created for us was SO thorough and detailed, that the day of I didn’t have to worry about how the day would go or if vendors knew what to do because I knew they had it under control and the whole day/night went flawlessly! Having a schedule, someone to set up and tare down, someone to help get you some appetizers after the ceremony so you don’t starve while taking pictures – it was amazing to not have to think about those things, so we could just have fun and enjoy our night! I can’t thank them enough for helping me put together my dream wedding. It was the best investment I made the whole wedding. If you are thinking about hiring a planner at all (which you should) – these are your gals! Even if it is just for day-of coordination, you’ll feel the amazing impact of the YJ team.

Working with Your Jubilee was the best decision we made for our wedding!! Planning a wedding from out of state is never easy but Meagan and Ashley made it easy for us!! Everything was perfect and magical for our wedding, and above all else was totally stress-free. They coordinated everything for us seamlessly. They were easy to communicate with during the whole process, and always made time to meet with us when we were in town! Would recommend them for anybody planning a wedding!
