ABOUT ASHLEY

If we've never crossed paths and sat down for coffee or laughed over a meal, let's start by getting on a first name basis. I'm Ashley and I'm glad you're here! As the heart behind Chic & Pretty Events, let me tell you about how I got here. It wasn't the first plan as I was on a completely different path toward a psychology career after college 9 years ago. Little did I know all the I experiences I had lead me to this business that I love so much. I was always a creative at heart but didn't know how I could make that into a career until I met this one powerhouse of a wedding planner. She was a wife, mama-to-be at the time with a thriving company looking for new interns.

I worked under her for years until I decided I wanted to create a life I got to design just like she did. As frightening as it was, I took a leap of faith and started C & P Events and it's been a crazy uphill journey. Don't get me wrong. There are just as many challenges as there are perks but working with so many kind-hearted people like you makes it worth it. Beyond being a small business owner, being Michael's wife and a mom to Sebastian and Alivia are some of the most rewarding and inspirational joys of my life. Those two roles alone have shown me my imprefections and strengths in a way that's pushed me away from the pressure of being perfect but rather a receiver of grace.

When I'm not spending time on events or with our littles, you can find me volunteering with Michael at our church where we get to meet with couples week after week helping them build stronger marriages. If not there, I'm nestled in a local bakery with tea and far too many sweets or traveling anywhere there's pretty blue water and dreamy landscapes. I'm smitten by wanderlust and love collaboratoring with wedding friends across the world to create awestruck beautiful celebrations. Now that you know about me, it's your turn! If any part of this resonates with you, send me a message. I'd love to hear about you and your next adventure.
