    The ultimate experience

    Where do I even start? It was my bestfriends wedding and Ashley made the day flawless! I couldn’t have asked for a better person to get the day done and always on time. I never felt lost with Ashley by our sides letting us know next steps, what to expect, and always a phone call away. We had a dress malfunction and she literally became a seamstress and got the bridesmaids dress fixed. She’s the best and she will get you through your very special day without a sweat!!

    Velvet Bordeaux Events will make your wedding day!

    From day one, Ashley made me feel like my wedding and I were in great hands. My husband and I made the decision to get married with just two months from our wedding date, so things needed to happen fast. Although we hired Ashley for day-of coordinator services, she took over everything from the moment we started working together and I felt immense relief. She finalized the details, assisted with set up and decor with almost no instruction, handled every little thing to come up, and communicated perfectly on my behalf. I honestly wouldn't have survived the wedding without her!! Thank you, Ashley.

    Ashley is a rockstar

    Ashley stepped in really last minute for our wedding and I am SO absolutely thankful. Ashley is insanely organized, thoughtful, calm and collected. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Ashley and would definitely recommend her as your coordinator/ planner for your wedding.

    Hire her now!

    I am a very Type A personality, so finding a coordinator that I could trust enough to hand over the reigns was very important to me. I met up with numerous planners that I just did not feel right about. Then I had my initial consultation with Ashley and I instantly hired her. Her positive energy is just so contagious that I just felt at ease. From our first conversation I just knew she would be able to execute my vision just as I had planned it.

    I hired her for Day-Of Coordination but she did more than just a day of work. I hired her a year before the wedding and from the first day she was there for us. Ashley is just so positive and accommodating and makes sure that you are happy. She made sure everything ran smoothly. My husband and I and our wedding party and entire family got to relax and enjoy the day knowing that Ashley was there.

    I cannot express the extent to which Ashley has helped us. If you are looking for a wedding planning or someone to provide wedding day management please look no further and hire Ashley!

    Velvet Bordeaux Events's reply:

    Kyrene! It was such a pleasure being your rock on your special day and the months leading up to it. I absolutely loved getting to know you, your now husband, and your families. Although splitting your day into two was not the original plan, I am low key excited because I get to spend another day with all of you!! You are the most creative and organized bride I have ever met and I am so happy to be the one that made sure your day was perfect! I can't wait to do it again next year!!

    HIRE HER! You will want her to plan your wedding!

    My husband and I (with heavy hearts) have decided to cancel our wedding due to Covid and expecting a baby so we didn’t really get to execute the dream wedding that we wanted. However, I would be happy to hire Ashley again once we decided to do the big wedding!
    She’s fun, caring, considerate, honest, creative (the list goes on). She’s prompt to your emails, texts, and calls and would love to help you with anything. Tell her your vision and she’ll gladly execute it!
    I also think that her price is very reasonable, especially for those brides who are on a tight budget!

    Velvet Bordeaux Events's reply:

    Eunice!! You are too sweet!!

    I am so sorry that we didn't get to do the big wedding like you had planned but I know that when the time is right, it is going to be such a beautiful event...and I will be right there making sure it's exactly what you dreamed of and more!

    Planning with both you and Jacob was such a delight. From our very first meeting in a Pizza Pizza (lol) to all our calls and emails, it was a pleasure building your dream with you!

    Keep in touch because I want to hear all about your new baby!!! All my love to your growing family!

    Best Planner Ever!

    Where do I start! Ashley was amazing from start to finish of the entire planning process. We hired her 7 weeks before our wedding date when we just spontaneously decided we were ready to get married, being a pregnant bride you would have think I would have been so stressed planning a wedding but she made this entire process stress free and she was always on top of things and was able to find all great vendors for me and plan a micro backyard wedding in just the span of 7 weeks. We were very impressed by her and would recommend her over and over again. A planner like her is very hard to find!

    Velvet Bordeaux Events's reply:

    Fiona! You are honestly the sweetest - you and your amazing family made planning this wedding a wonderful experience! Although we were dealing with a lot of uncertainty in the world, one thing was for certain and that is you being the most beautiful bride and Quacy being the COOLEST groom!!! And of course Matthew being the best ring boy in the world haha. I am so happy our paths crossed and that I was able to create your dream wedding in the intimacy of your own backyard with your closet friends and family. I am so excited to watch your family grow and can't wait to welcome baby Madison into the world!

    Incredible!

    ASHLEY, RON AND I HAD THE MOST WONDERFUL, STRESS-FREE WEDDING AND ENJOYED EVERY MINUTE OF OUR SPECIAL DAY!
    We met Ashley by chance and we couldn’t be happier! She seamlessly picked up where our month of planner left off and really took our wedding to the next level. She was easy to work with, professional and innovative. Our event was executed flawlessly and exactly how we had envisioned it! I remember being asked if I wanted a sneak peak at the reception area before the ceremony and I was in awe and even shed a few tears because everything we planned for months came together perfectly and we have Ashley to thank for making it a reality! She
    managed a large wedding of 121 people (give or take) lol 🤪. worked with multiple vendors, and ensured that my husband and I had the time of our lives while sticking to our timeline and taking care of any little surprises that came up! All of this she did with absolute grace, poise, and ease and so many of our guests were raving about how patient and kind she was. We are so greatful to Have had her handle our beautiful event. I highly recommend Velvet Bordeaux Events to any bride and groom as they are sure to make your special day elegant, fun and stress-free. Thanks again Ashley!

    Velvet Bordeaux Events's reply:

    Thank you so much for your kind words, Lise! It was such a pleasure making your dream wedding a reality! I am so glad to have met you and Ron - you have amazing friends and family and you guys were so cute on the dance floor!! I wish you and Ron all the love and happiness in the world!!

    Lovely to work with and made the day stress free!

    We hired Ashley for month/day of coordination. Ashley was absolutely amazing! She is very punctual and organized. In the month leading up to the wedding she coordinated with all our vendors, attended meetings, created a schedule and was always available if we needed to talk. The day of the wedding she ensured everything flowed perfectly, we even had other vendors approach us and say how wonderful she was! She always has a great attitude and cheerful energy, I honestly don't think our day would have been the same without her!

    Velvet Bordeaux Events's reply:

    Sheldane! It was so awesome to be able to help you and Scott with your fairytale wedding. It was a beautiful day and you were the most stunning bride! I am so happy I was able to help you with some last minute bookings and to guide your day through a seamless timeline. I wish you and your HUSBAND all the best and a lifetime of happiness!

Owner & Principal Planner

Hi!

My name is Ashley, Theatre and Fashion Management Major, retired Disney Princess from PPBS, Certified by the Wedding Planners Institute of Canada, Certified Floral Designer from Canada's Institute of Floral Design and Owner & Principal Planner of Velvet Bordeaux Events. *phew!*

My love for the Wedding and Event Industry started in 2010 when I ran Little Cakes, a small baked good company serving cakes, cupcakes and fun, little treats for all kinds of events. Cakes eventually turned into planning parties for children while attending as the entertainment which, then opened doors to a slew of other events. Before I knew it, the costume was off and I was behind the scenes the entire time...and LOVING it!

I am and always have been a dreamer, so to be able to connect with other people and their dreams comes naturally to me. I love learning about what makes people smile and making that thought a reality. I love to laugh and enjoy making people laugh, I am personable, enthusiastic, and the only Hype Girl you will ever need!

Do you have a birthday coming up? Office party? Maybe you just got engaged! Let's chat, tell me all about it and lets make your dreams, real life!
