Velvet Bordeaux's Ashley was everything we could have asked for and more!!!
Exactly 1 month post-wedding and finally got a chance to sit down and share my experience working with the superwoman, Ashley Farrell, owner and lead planner of Velvet Bordeaux Events. I don't know even know where to begin, so I will start with my first phone call with Ashley. My immediate reaction 2 minutes into the conversation was "Where have you been all my life?!". During and after that first phone call I felt instantly at ease and re-assured about all of our wedding plans and the final details leading up to our big day. During the course of the 6 weeks I worked with Ashley, she was an absolute pleasure and nothing short of amazing! She is incredibly organized, thorough, detail-oriented and thoughtful. She made herself available to us at all hours of the day, even sometimes responding to frantic text messages late into the night. The days leading up to our wedding day, she checked in with us multiple times and on the day of she even came to my getting-ready location just to see how I was doing and to make sure I had everything I needed - what a nice touch! There was a 6-hour gap between our ceremony and reception and they took place at different venues. We also had a number of cultural ceremonies with which Ashley had no prior experience. For the reasons described (long day, multiple venues, cultural ceremonies), I wondered, would she manage okay? What a silly question to ask! Ashley was more than okay, she was a super star!!! Guests and family who interacted with her thought so too with nothing but positive things to say. A few sentiments we heard from our family and guests were as follows: "She was so poised and knew exactly what to do at all times", "She always had a smile on her face", "She has such a great energy about her". I do not have a single negative thing to say about Ashley. She is phenomenal and is great at what she does. Rest assureds she will take care of you very well! A few things that really touched my husband and I: 1) His and her care packages set up in our bridal suite, 2) How present Ashley was and how much care she put into making our day perfect so we didn't have to worry about a single thing; she was always 3 steps ahead of us, and 3) Going the extra mile and staying past midnight when we had an issue with our McDonalds order for our late night and making sure it all got sorted before she left for the night. Ashley, I can't thank you enough for all that you did for Faiz and I. We are so grateful that we had you by our side as we said our I-do's! I would recommend Ashley without any hesitation or reservation to any couple planning their big day. Having a planner and/or coordinator is a huge help and if you're lucky to get someone as talented as Ashley, it is worth every penny!Sent on 04/08/2019
Velvet Bordeaux Events's reply:I don't even know where to start! Working with you and Faiz has to be one of my most cherished weddings - I really got to know the both of you and to be able to be part of something so magical is something that I will always remember! Thank you so much for this glowing review - it means the world to me! I can't wait for your next big event...baby shower perhaps haha! I will admit, I do miss all our texting and phone calls about wedding details..I can't wait to catch up and hear all about married life! Thank you again, Tahira!!! I wish you and Faiz a lifetime of happiness!

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!Sent on 08/10/2019

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!Sent on 18/07/2019
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!

A true professional
I didn’t think I could afford a wedding planner because my wedding was so small. Our wedding would have been riddled with problems and headaches if it wasn’t for Ashley! Ashley made everything go so smooth and made my life In the day of easier, effortless and enjoyable! She has the sweetest personality, she cares about how you are doing and is meticulous about the details. Any issues I had, Ashley would take care of it. She communicated with all my vendors so that I didn’t have to worry about it. She was not only committed to being a professional planner but also became a good friend. She helped me out by even taking my getting ready photos because I couldn’t afford extra time with the photography. The photos I attached are from her and a small sample of what she did for the wedding. She was also awesome with my 8 year old son!! My guests loved her as well. Ashley even helped pack up all my wedding stuff at the end of the party. If you are thinking to save some money by not getting a planner, I plead and urge that you contact Ashley, you’ll be happy that you did. I am so grateful that I chose her as my event planner because she made it all go perfect! She will make your special day truly awesome! She’s an absolute pleasure to work with and to be around. Thank you so much for everything that you did Ashley 😊.

By far the best money we spent!
We hired Ashley just a few weeks out to our wedding and it was by far the best money my now husband and I ever spent towards the wedding!
Ashley is the sweetest person ever and she goes above and beyond to make sure your wedding day is nothing but perfect. She created our day of time line, coordinated with all of our vendors, which really allowed for us to enjoy our wedding day!
She even surprised us with little details such a sparklers at the end of the night, which was so sweet.
When I first met Ashley, I had such a good feeling about our partnership that I recommended her to one of my coworkers, now that our wedding has passed, I can't wait to share my amazing experience with everyone!
Ashley, Robert and I can't thank you enough for everything you have done for us!Sent on 25/09/2019
Velvet Bordeaux Events's reply:Katelyn! I absolutely loved getting to know you and Robert the few weeks leading up to your wedding day - I even loved the secret planning I did with your brother to make sure your day was beyond special! The way you and Robert surprised everyone with your first dance salsa, then there was the Mother/Son dance surprise with the customized song and then the surprise trumpet performer for your Brother/Sister dance - I really had to fight those tears!! I truly wish you and your HUSBAND all the love and happiness the world has to offer! You guys deserve it and so much more!
