    The BEST Day-Of Coordinator!!

    Ashley is the best decision we ever made when it came to planning our wedding - HANDS DOWN! The amount of relief and reassurance she gave us is more than we could have ever asked for. From our first phone call to the day of the wedding, she made the whole process super smooth and answered ALL our questions in a timely manner. I, personally, get stressed out really easily when it comes to planning, but Ashley managed to put all of that away, ESPECIALLY on the day of the wedding! The big day was absolutely perfect and Ashley made sure of that. I didn't have to worry at all and was able to enjoy the big day from beginning to end! I could not imagine planning this wedding without her. You will not be disappointed!!

    100% recommend!

    From our first meeting, Ashley immediately put us at ease with her excitement and bubbly personality! In the midst of what most couples would consider their most challenging month, Ashley made our experience so positive as she led us to the wedding we both always wanted. I get super overwhelmed, scattered and anxious when hosting anything, let alone my wedding. Ashley kept everything running smoothly, brought so many ideas, and responded to my complicated family dynamics with sensitivity and support. We both can't recommend her enough!

    Highly recommend!

    There are not enough words to describe how pleased and happy we are to work with Ashley. She made the day absolutely perfect! She was amazing and easily to work with. Ashley made our dream wedding vision to life - even better! She handled so much with our vendors for us and honestly helped us (especially the bride) feel calm the entire time. We highly recommend her and her team!

    The fairy godmother of our fairytale wedding!!

    I can鈥檛 express the weight that was lifted off of my shoulders the first time that I spoke with Ashley. She was so kind, professional and asked all the right questions, even the ones I hadn鈥檛 thought of. VBE鈥檚 wedding management service was exactly what I was looking for, as I had done most of the planning and arranged the vendors. Ashley worked with me for the months leading up to our wedding, organizing every detail and working with all of our vendors to ensure our day was perfect. She even sent a map of our venue to our vendors with a pathway indicating the best way for them to bring everything in! Ashley and her assistant Sam took care of everything for our wedding day; decorating the church and venue, ensuring everyone knew where they needed to be and even packing all of the decor and bringing it to our cars at the end of the evening. This was absolute best decision we made in terms of our wedding and I encourage anyone who is looking for wedding planning/management service to get in touch with VBE!!

    Best choice I made throughout planning

    Hiring Ashley was hands down the best decision I made when planning my wedding. Initially, I had no intention of hiring a wedding planner but I can safely say now that the only reason I felt that way was because I did not realize how much goes into the wedding day. Ashley was incredible in every way and I can honestly say I can't think of one area for improvement. She was incredibly responsive, kind, helpful and flexible throughout. She helped with absolutely every detail of the wedding and made sure we were always taken care of throughout the day. Having her available made the wedding day so much more enjoyable and reduced my stress exponentially. If you are lucky enough that Ashley is available for your wedding, do yourself a favor and book her now. You will not regret it and she will be the first person I recommend to anyone I know that is getting married. Thank you for everything Ashley!

    The ultimate experience

    Where do I even start? It was my bestfriends wedding and Ashley made the day flawless! I couldn鈥檛 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鈥檚 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.

    Amazing planner!!!

    I have never worked with a more professional, friendly, creative, passionate, and talented human being! Ashley is a pleasure to work with! She listens to your needs and executes flawlessly because of her extensive experience and thoughtfulness with every client. Don鈥檛 even bother looking for another event coordinator because she is the BEST! I have witnessed her turn average weddings into magical, unforgettable experiences. And the DECOR! OMG she鈥檚 very into the fine, subtle details that others overlook. That鈥檚 what clearly sets her apart! Clearly. She will also make sure your day stays on track and on time. She thinks quick on her feet if there are any last minute changes and is very flexible and personable. She comes highly recommended by me and if any of my clients need a wedding coordinator she is my go to! Keep up the great work Ashley!!

Ashley
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!
