From the YES, to the dress... from I DO to the honeymoon. Our team staffed with licensed hair and makeup artists, wedding and event planner

Hello, my name is Ashlie Ruggiero and I am your wedding planner. My team and I at Glam Next Door would like to make your wedding or event as amazing as it can be. We will do everything from helping form and set your budget, to decorating your event. We want you to be as much or as little involved in the process as you would like to be.
Our team differs from most wedding planners because not only will we help plan your event and set up for the day, but our team will also do hair, makeup, and wardrobe for the hosts of the event (bridal party, brides during wedding showers, moms during baby showers, etc) and also offers photography.

I am first and foremost a mother of three children.

I graduated at the top of my class in 2010 with an Associates Degree in Liberal Arts and Psychology and in 2012 with a Bachelors Degree in Criminal Justice at the University of New Haven. I am also a graduate of the QC School of Wedding and Event Planning, and am a member of the Professional Photographers of America.

Ashlie Steinau Photography is owned by myself, and while I specialize in event photography, I also help my brides in planning their very special day!
I have planned events in my area for weddings, parties, formal events, charity benefits, and am currently planning this year's Connecticut Couture Fashion week.
