Take the edge off, it's what we do!
Platinum Edge Events is a northeast Ohio based events and wedding planning company. Platinum Edge Events is here to help take the edge off in all of your planning needs, no matter the event. We pride ourselves in being able to help in all aspects of your event, and strive to make you feel as you part of the Platinum Edge family.
My name is Ashley Zabish, the owner of Platinum Edge Events. When I was younger I had always dreamed of being an Event Planner, but I never saw it as viable career option living in Northeast Ohio where we feel like it snows 10 months out of the year! It was always something I thought I wanted to do, but as I entered college I decided to pursue a degree in Marketing and Finance because I thought I could satisfy my creative side and analytical side with both degrees and give me a wide range of career choices when I finished school. In my final year at Kent State University I took an Event Planning & Production class, an Event Marketing class, and I interned for 'Stache Media, a branch of Sony Music. These 3 things brought me back to dream of one day owning my own Event Planning company, and I told myself I would make my dream a reality before I reached age 30.
I graduated from Kent State in 2012 and set off in to "the Real World" with a job as an Office Manager where I have gained the insight to the ins and outs of running a business. I took a weekend job working as photo booth attendant for Clear Choice Photo Booths, one of the top rated Photo Booth companies in the state. With my office experience and event experience I received working at many different events with Clear Choice and 'Stache Media I knew where my heart belonged and enrolled myself back in school to gain the last piece of the puzzle with starting my own company.
Platinum Edge Events is my lifelong dream coming to life before my eyes. There is nothing I will not do to make sure this company succeeds. My passion for event planning started from the early days when I would plan my wedding and honeymoon, multiple vacations, parties for myself and friends, etc. Now I am able to do everything I have been pretending to do, but do it for a client and see their reaction when everything goes off without a hitch.
As for a little bit about my personal side, my favorite color is pink, I bleed neon and sparkles, I have an unhealthy obsession with Britney Spears, reality shows, puzzles, and reading, I love my Cleveland sports teams (no matter how often we lose), and my dream vacations always include somewhere near a giant body of water!
