Why do couples love working with you?
Our couples become our friends, so when it comes down to trusting us with their most important details, they know we will handle each situation and decision as they would.
What do you love most about being a wedding planner?
That’s easy, the joy of watching a couple or their families take in the special moments of a day. Celebrating love.
How did you get started?
Coming from promotional marketing and corporate planning and branding, event fundamentals were with me from my first job out of college, but when the recession hit, people were still getting married. As layoffs began in my Marketing firm, I studied to be certified in wedding planning, and I said yes to any planner that needed an extra set of hands on their events. Year one I completed two weddings simply because I had very trusting friends. It takes one full event, solely organized by you to truly teach you all you need to learn while at the same time setting you up for referrals by guests attending, or vendors that see how hard you work.
What 3 words best describe your company?
Social, Resourceful, and Teamwork.
What budget range do you cater to?
We work with brides with budgets ranging from $20,000-$100,000.
Ashlee and Amy were wonderful to work with as our “month-of” planners for our daughter’s wedding. Besides coordinating vendors and the wedding day schedule, they were completely available for guidance in the weeks leading up to the wedding, including helping with last-minute rain plans. Their professionalism and attention to detail helped to create a memorable celebration. As it turns out we have another daughter getting married, and we plan to hire them again.
Ashlee was one of the best decisions we made when planning our wedding! We hired her for month-of coordinating, but she was a great resource to us throughout the planning process. She gave us a detailed planning timeline after our first meeting that helped us stay on track with all of our tasks and recommended some amazing vendors for us to work with! Our wedding day was perfect! Ashlee made things run so smoothly, and most importantly, ensured that we had a stress-free wedding day.
I wish I could give Ashlee and her team 100 stars! WOW, I am so beyond thankful we decided to go with Mrs. Planner for our recent December wedding. When visiting with potential planners, Ashlee was the only planner that asked me “What do you want guests to remember from your day?” I loved that and knew I could trust her to execute on my grand vision for the day! Ashlee is so sweet and fun and is also the organization queen! We met several times leading up to the wedding and she even came to my final planning appointments with vendors to ensure they would deliver exactly what they needed to on the big day. She created a wedding drive for us to collaborate on which helped keep me organized and also managed the setup and tear-down on the day of the wedding. This was all huge for me as I did not want my mom or other family members to have to worry about anything. I wanted them to be able to just enjoy the day!
Ashlee and her teammate Heather (also amazing) made that possible for us and that was worth every single cent to us. If you are on the fence about getting a planner or month of coordinator, I can promise you, you will not regret it. I am so glad we hired Mrs. Planner. Ashlee helped make our day perfect and flow seamlessly for our guests – and that is something we will ALWAYS be grateful for. I would hire her again and recommend her 1000000x over!
