Hi! I’m Ashley. (Owner and Executive Coordinator/Designer) I am a wedding planner and floral designer. I was raised in the wedding industry – it’s in my veins and it is my passion! Based in Central New York but love to travel. I’m a daughter, friend and I’m a mama to an absolute miracle, my son is my everything. I love crafting, traveling and honestly, I’m a coffee addict and have the biggest sweet tooth – I’m completely accepting of it! I’m a firm believer in loving big, making memories and savoring moments. I cry at every wedding, my favorite moments are when the bride sees her parents for the first time and when she sees her groom, whew – I’m getting teary eyed just thinking about it.
