I am a self proclaimed wedding guru. I grew up in the wedding and event industry. As an only child I went to work with my mom and got to experience the incredible rush of weddings, now it’s in my veins and it is my passion! As a wedding planner and floral designer I have an eye for design and attention to detail -- it's just in my Type A veins. I’m a wife, daughter, friend and I’m a mama to 3 incredible boys. I’m a firm believer in loving big, making memories and savoring moments.

Let's get real, I cry at every wedding - it's true. 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. And now that I'm a mom, the mother-son dance gets me.


I'm Ashley!

We book a limited number of weddings per weekend, our calendar fills very quickly, and all dates are reserved on a first-come, first-booked basis.



Take a deeper look at real weddings we've had the honor of bringing to fruition. 



C & A Event Planning specializes in wedding planning, content creation, and floral design. 





Hi, I'm Ashley and I'm a huge dreamer -- that's in fact where it all began.

I got the itch for the wedding industry as a young child -- seeing the vision come to life, the feeling of adrenaline when the clock is ticking and it is almost go time -- that is what lights my fire.

I've grown my business not once but 3 times now and with babies on my hip for the last 10 years. I'm here to tell you I've walked in your shoes and I want to help you avoid some of my early mistakes. I help women get the spark, achieve more freedom and see that they can want more - chase more and be with their families. It's time to dream bigger.
