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
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!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!

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!

Friendly, Caring and Professional!!!
My husband and I hired Ashley a little over a week before our wedding and although we have only known her for a short while, her out going personality and friendliness make you feel like you’ve always known her! My husband and I planned our own wedding and as the wedding was approaching we realized we had no way to do the set up on our own. Upon hiring Ashley, she met up with us, we showed her our plan for all the decor and talked about the wedding. Ashley picked up our decor items prior to the wedding and even went out of her way to pick up our seating chart the night before the wedding because it wasn’t finished on time! I don’t even know why we would have done without her. Ashley definitely shows her clients that she cares in so many ways!Sent on 10/09/2019
On the day of the wedding she worked so hard to make sure the room looked how we had envisioned it to look and she did an amazing job with our guestbook/ gift table! It started to rain during the wedding and she worked so quickly to bring everything in from outside! She ensured the first reveal went smoothly, and the walk down the aisle. She was a joy to work with and to have around on the big day. Everyone that encountered Ashely said she was absolutely lovely! My only wish it that we had hired her for the full day rather than a few hours. If you are a bride looking for a planner, day of coordinator or if you’re like me and planned your wedding yourself but need someone to execute it on the big day, hire Ashley!!
Thank you for everything Ashely, you were a pleasure to meet and work with!!
Velvet Bordeaux Events's reply:Thank you so much for your kind words, Stephanie!! It was such a pleasure helping you and Jeff with your special day - I really loved getting to know the two of you. The both of you are so kind and just so lovable to be around! You have a very contagious personality and I feel honoured to have been able to help execute your dream weddings. I've said it before and I'll say it again, you looked like a true princess! Congratulations to you and your HUSBAND, I wish you a lifetime of love and happiness!
