    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!!

    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!

    Absolutely Amazing

    Ashley and her team made everything perfect for our wedding day. They dealt with any issues without stressing out the bride and kept everything exactly on schedule. Without them, we wouldn't have been able to have the perfect day that we had. We are so grateful to Ashley and her team and will recommend their services to all our friends and families.

    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)

    Dream Wedding

    We couldn’t have had our dream wedding without this amazing team of planners and coordinators! Through the planning process, Lauren was there every step of the way answering any questions we had and helping us with finding the perfect vendors. She is so organized and kept us on top of things. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect, everything ran right on schedule and the decor set up was better than what I would have ever imagined. Ashley and Stephanie worked so hard to make our day perfect and delt with any issues we had. They made sure that ourselves and our guests were happy and having a great time. When my makeup artist canceled 3 days before my wedding, the whole team stepped up to find me a last minute replacement. Would highly recommend hiring Blush and Lace for planning and coordination for a stress-free wedding!

    100% Recommend!

    Steph and her team were incredibly kind, communicative and had stellar attention to detail. They displayed calm confidence and excellent time and people management. They set up the space even better than I could have asked, ensured all decor use was maximized between the various spaces, had all our gear packed up and organized at the end of the night, and most importantly - were so thoughtful in making the day everything we could imagine without any stress. I was very impressed and am so grateful!

    100000/10 Stars

    The team at Blush and Lace were absolutely amazing and took care of every single little detail on our big day. Ashley was amazing in assisting with final details the month before and had tons of wonderful helpful advice. Lauren and Lexi were absolutely fantastic and ran our day like a well rehearsed production. We didn’t have to worry about a thing and they made the day so easy and care free so all we had to do was enjoy ourselves. The team was worth every penny spent and I can’t recommend them enough. Everyone was so professional and absolutely delightful to work with.

    Thank you so much Tricia!!!
    Your wedding was a pleasure to be a part of and we are so happy you trusted all of us with your special day!

    Incredible experience! Flexible, Responsive, Easy Going - Highly Recommend

    Lauren and her team are incredible to work with, and so easy going! I *know* there were hiccups with my wedding but they were handled so professionally and were not brought to me at the last minute which I really valued and appreciated as the morning of is stressful enough! :) Lauren and her team made our wedding so much smoother than it would have been without them. I will be recommending Blush&Lace to all of my newly engaged friends! Highly, highly recommend if you are considering a coordinator.
