My name is Ashley, I am a wife and a mother of a 3 year old. I have loved planning events for many years. I recently got more involved in doing events & weddings when I planned my own wedding. Most of the events I have planned in the past have either been for me or close friends. I enjoy doing them so much and everyone always complements me on what a good job I do, that I knew I wanted to make a career out of it. Nothing makes me happier than to see the reactions on my clients faces when they see the final project complete and are happy with the end results. I always try to give my clients everything on their wish list and make it a smooth ride for them. I know planning events and weddings can be very stressful, so anything I can help them do to make it less stressful to them, makes me very happy.
I have planned events for many years for family, friends, and myself. I planned birthday parties, weddings, baby showers, wedding showers, retirement parties and more. I finally decided that I enjoyed planning these events more than my full time job so I decided to go back to school and get my certificate. I'm currently enrolled through QC Career School for event and wedding planning. At the end of the course I will get a certificate of completion and I will be a International Event and Wedding Planning Professional (IEWP) With having completed this course I will be more knowledgeable to plan even better parties and events than I did before. I am very excited to be able to do this full time and meet wonderful people and make their occasion special!
I currently am working in the Southern Illinois/St. Louis area. However, I am willing to travel if need be. If the event is out of my area or if I'm needed for another service that is for the event, I am willing to travel for my clients.
In the area that I am working now I have both the advantage of doing upper class parties held in the city all the way to outdoor country weddings and events.
