Shayne was the absolute best!

Our day was absolutely perfect. A super complex mountain elopement that was requested 6months out was a tall order, but Shayne did not disappoint at all. She showed up when it counted, both as a professional and a new friend. She is a beautiful person from the inside out and an expert professional. The day was not without minor hiccups but I credit her 100% with handling those hiccups with professionalism and always with our interest at heart. I would recommend her 1000% for anything!

Beyond amazing

We were soooo thankful to have Stephanie and her assistant Emily with us on our wedding day!
The week before the wedding Stephanie took care of all those last minute confirmations from vendors and allowed us to just spend time with family leading up to the wedding. The day of the wedding I woke up with zero stress, the day flowed smoothly, all little details taken care of which allowed us just to enjoy the day and take it all in. I would highly recommend Blush & Lace as a company to assist in your wedding day needs, you will not regret them.

Made everything flow perfectly

Shayne and Stephanie were amazing! They made for a flawless flow of the day. I honestly don't think we could have done it without them. They ensured everything was on schedule, and kept themselves as point of contact, which made for a stress free day. Highly recommend!

Made our day beyond perfect

We had the honour of having blush and lace beginnings help us with our special day. From the moment we first chatted I knew they were going to be perfect. The month of the wedding they helped me so much and calmed so many nerves. The day of the wedding Shayne and Stephanie ran the day so smoothly. From rehearsal day, decorations, cake and take down, these girls blew us away with everything. I honestly could not have dreamed of a better day. I would 100000/10 recommend these girls.

Our dream wedding

Lauren and Ashley went above and beyond and delivered a wedding better than we could have dreamed of. My vision wasn’t easy - my ideas were music festival, woodland, retro Woodstock vibes, but they absolutely nailed it. The wedding day was flawless, or at least as far as I’m concerned, because if anything came up they dealt with it without me even finding out. I could not recommend them more, they made our wedding dreams come true and all we had to do was show up to the party :)

You need this planner!

Our wedding was perfect, Ashley and team listened to everything I wanted, asked about things I didnt even consider. which allowed for my day to just be enjoyed. Ashley got all of my must have's completed and on time. She wrangled my guests, wedding party and outspoken family members ( we all have a couple) with grace and then always informed me of everything. If you didn't think you needed a planner or wanted to do it yourself.. I'd must insist to chat with this team about your day and invest in the peace and happiness you will get from just being able to enjoy the day and not worry about the small last minutes things like not having batteries for candles.. thank you so much Ashley and team!!

Ashley went above and beyond to make our day extra special

How do I even begin to explain all the reasons I would recommend Ashley for your wedding? Simply put, Ashley and her assistant are absolute angels who blew our expectations out of the water. I can honestly say that hiring Ashley as our wedding coordinator was the best decision we could have made.

Ashley truly made our wedding day a dream. She made sure everything went off without a hiccup. She went above and beyond and even did tasks that wasn't in her job description.

A lot of errors were made by the venue in regards to food and drink and Ashley did her best to make sure things were either resolved on the day or jotted them down for when we had to contact the venue ourselves.

She is an amazing person and extremely professional at her job. She made sure to keep me involved throughout the day prior to the ceremony. So I could give my opinion on set up etc.

Her attention to detail was phenomenal, she responded to me within the hour,

Everything I wanted, she did and more. Ashley was so easy to talk to and get a long with. She understood what we wanted and did everything in her power to make our day amazing. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to have a stress free wedding day.

Knowing that Ashley was handling our day made our morning and day so relaxing. If you want a stress free day and someone you can rely on I would pick Ashley over and over again!

P.S. She even had the DJ play the ghostbusters song which is involved in a private story of how we met which will forever be embedded in our hearts. (we didn't even think of adding this to our playlist lol)

Seriously the BEST!!!

I cannot say enough kind words about Ashley. We hired her as our day of coordinator and she truly out did herself. I seriously don’t know how smooth our day would have went if we didn’t have her help! She was excellent at communicating with us and brought up a lot of things we didn’t even think of to consider. On the day she went above and beyond to make sure our day was everything we could have imagined and more. Thank you Ashley - you seriously are the best! If you are thinking of hiring Blush & Lace Beginnings, don’t think, just do. You won’t regret it!
