Ashton Events came about because I saw a need for storytelling in the event industry — for celebrations that do more than flow effortlessly, but also leave a lasting impression on their guests. I’m a firm believer in creating well-planned and executed events infused with unforgettable personal style.

I was never the girl who dreamt about her big day and I didn’t start Ashton Events after planning my own wedding – I created it because of the blessing and significance of two souls getting to meet and unite. I believe that the anticipation of the day does not come from the pomp and circumstance, but rather the joy of two lives committing to each other.

Grace, trust and transparency speak to my core — and are the heartbeat of Ashton Events.  Community and family are of the utmost importance to me. Chasing around my niece and nephew, soaking up time with friends, cheering for the Colts, watching tennis, exploring new cities, and discovering little restaurants make up some of my favorite moments. Experiencing life together, in both authenticity and faith, colors the most beautiful stories. I am honored to have helped tell so many.

Your wedding is only the start of your journey. I am delighted to let you focus on the significance of it while I take care of the rest. I look forward to getting to know you and celebrating with you.
