KIND WORDS FROM OUR CLIENTS
"From the first phone call I knew that Ashley was the one we wanted to usher us through the wedding planning process. Ashley more than deserves five stars for she and her team gave our daughter and her now husband a magical five star wedding. Ashley was with us from the beginning of the planning process and we are thrilled she was. For Ashley always with a smile, calmly and methodically lead us through the planning process. We could not have been happier and our guests are still, 5 months later, raving about what a beautiful, elegant wedding; one filled with happiness and joy it was (from online)....We received so many calls, letters (yes, letters) and emails raving about the evening! There are no words that I can use to express our deepest gratitude. The only wish I have is that I could have stopped time and savored the moments longer. Loved every piece. (From email)." — Cathy, Mother of the Bride, Greenwich, CT
“As we sit in the Air France lounge awaiting our flight, we are still floating on air from Saturday. We cannot thank you enough for the care, professionalism and genuine enthusiasm you and your wonderful team put into our wedding. You took a hazy, undeveloped idea and turned it into an amazing weekend beyond what we could imagine. You made us feel like we were your only clients. You are now a legend in our family and we will be ringing your praises for years to come.”
— Bobby and Annie, New York, NY
"Ashley, this note is a bit belated but I did want you to know what a wonderful job you did with my daughter in law and son’s wedding event. Everything was perfect, gorgeous and memorable! I also want to express extra thanks for your involvement in all of our added surprises that evening!"
— Claire, Mother of the Groom, New York, NY
"I really enjoyed working with you and am so grateful for how well you executed the vision. Everyone was blown away by the design and quality of everything. The flowers and the staging of all the details were simply amazing. You pulled it off so quickly, that was the real “street magic”. Thank you for all your talent and attention to detail, I noticed and appreciated every effort."
— Nancie, Greenwich, CT
“We cannot thank you enough for your time, patience and above and beyond expertise. At first I really didn’t think we needed a planner because I am so type A myself but wow we truly do not know how this wonderful event would have been so wonderful, or happened at all, without your care leading the way. You are a dedicated professional and have such a big heart may I add. Our family cannot stop talking. This experience will stay with us at dinner table conversations forever.”
— Mother of the Bride (NDA), Bridgehampton, NY
"Ashley was a dream to work with on my wedding. I was hesitant to hire a planner at first because I wanted to make sure my husband and I had a day that was right for us and that we were in control. But I knew with my busy work schedule that taking on this project alone was not possible. Additionally, my mother was involved with decor and she and I do not have the same taste so having someone else helped us both tremendously. Ashley sees details that I never would have known about. She took the time to know my husband and I, and let that inform her suggestions. She is a walking wedding encyclopedia. In the end our wedding was a bit like theatre and I know she had once been in theater. The flow, the day of, the decor it all came together as one. We cannot recommend her more highly."
—Anonymous (NDA), Bride, New York City, NY
"We recently celebrated the wedding of our daughter and son in law. After interviewing several wedding planners, I hired Ashley Douglass of Ashley Douglass Events. Being something of a perfectionist and little bit of a control freak to put it mildly, and wishing for only the best and most beautiful celebration for our most deserving couple - at the end of our three day event, I knew I had chosen wisely. Beside being a tireless, dynamic worker, Ashley's expertise with all things wedding, including but not limited to her list of amazing vendors and her amazing rapport with them, Ashley was always there for me. She goes above and beyond as planner, counselor (yes, counselor), and friend, remaining calm when I would worry. From the bride and groom, to guests, to vendors, to staff at the beautiful venue, all we heard that night and for weeks afterwards, was, "best wedding ever"! For many, many months, we worked hard over every detail, over and over again, hoping for the best and the wedding day proved that and more. IT WAS MAGICAL! Because of Ashley and her wonderful team that three day weekend, we were able to be guests and fully enjoy the weekend's festivities! If I were to host any kind of event, would I once again use Ashley Douglass Events --- YOU BET! My heartfelt thanks and kudos to you, Ashley, and your wonderful team, Julia, Rachel, Page and Sara who made all of us feel like royalty! Many, many thanks.
— Anita, Mother of the Bride, Ridgefield, CT
“It's true - she’s the best and a life saver. Literally saved my life and my wedding day despite me being a totally sick bride (with a fever) with major snafus happening all day including the band in car accident (I had no idea and was blissfully moving through my day while she navigated a change in band); impending rain storm (changed my picture time making me think "better pictures now"); etc etc etc. Part of me needs a reason for another party ASAP because I miss Ashley, Page and Julia and the whole team.”
— Heather, Bride, Madison, NJ

"Ashley was a GOD SEND!!!! The level of detail and effort she put into planning our wedding was way above and beyond and we honestly couldn’t thank her enough. She was incredibly responsive and though of everything that wouldn’t have even crossed my mind. The coordination she and her staff provided on the day of was extremely professional and they made sure that everything got done according to the schedule.

"Having Ashley by my side, literally helped me sleep at night. She was great with design, but did not push her own agenda, which I saw a friend of mine experience with her planner.
