Day-Of Coordination, Full Service Wedding Planning
Working with Ashley for our wedding was by far the best decision we made. We hired Ashley as our Day of Coordinator--she helped us build out our floor plan & seating charts, managed all of our vendors and ran our wedding day flawlessly. Everyone in our wedding party was so impressed with her & her personality--she was just so fantastic from the day we hired her to the end of the night. We would VERY HIGHLY recommend for your wedding/event!
While planning our wedding, a friend suggested we hire a planner, but I didn’t think it would be necessary since our wedding was going to be small (70 people). I am glad I took that advice and found Ashley! There are so many moving parts and logistics to figure out – and having someone assist and handle issues allowed us to just enjoy the day and not worry. Just before walking down the aisle, the clip to my veil fell off – Ashley had a sewing kit handy and put it back on in a pinch. Totally saved the moment! We held our wedding (ceremony/reception) in lower Manhattan at a venue that has not done many weddings. Ashley was able to bridge the gap and everything went super smooth. Ashley is terrific! She is super organized, thorough and professional. She had lots of questions/recommendations/details for us to consider leading up to the day and was a great sounding-board. She also has a network of vendors of which we used a few and they were also great. If you are considering using a coordinator – you should just do it and hire her. This was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding.
DO YOURSELF A FAVOUR AND GO WITH ASHLEY! Hiring Ashley for design consultation and as our day of coordinator is hands down that best decision we made during our wedding planning. Sofia and I knew that Ashley was the one for us from the very first phone call. If you're looking for someone: - Easy to work with - Tons of fun but very professional - With a personality that everyone loves - Who is über organized - Who has the natural skill of directing wandering flower girls during the walk down the aisle - Always available to chat through anything My wife and I looked forward to every meeting with Ashley during our planning. You'll always come out of a meeting feeling taken care of and have a clear understanding of what's coming and what you're supposed to do next. She gets your vision, makes it even better and always comes through with the right people to execute it. She pulled off a fantastic multi-cultural wedding and managed to incorporate both our tastes and visions beautifully. She made our wedding such a day to remember that our friends and family are already asking when the vow renewal will be. Needless to say, Ashley will probably get a call from us whenever that happens.
Don't look any further. Ashley is who you need! We hired Ashley as our Day-Of Coordinator 'plus' - the plus involved one meeting a month to keep us on track. If you've read the other reviews, I agree with all the great things that were said about her. What I will add is that she has a great, even temperament, good sense of humor, is incredibly knowledgeable and has so much experience, that you can ask her anything and get a completely helpful answer. She quickly "got" us as a couple and was able to tailor her suggestions to fit us and always left space for us to go our own way. She has one of those event planning brains, is insanely organized, and made our day run so smoothly, you'd think there was no effort put into it at all. My husband and I are both planners and never usually turn "control' over to others, but neither of us gave a second thought to any detail that day because we had no doubt that Ashley had everything well in hand. (and we were absolutely correct) It would almost be worth it to get married again just to have an excuse to have this woman in our lives!! Thank you for everything Ashley!
Ashley was our Day of Coordinator and she was amazing! We interviewed several different planners and went with Ashley because she was super professional but friendly, and some of our other vendors had worked with her before and had great things to say. Leading up to our wedding Ashley answered a lot of our questions and kept us on track, and our big meeting before the wedding helped us get organized and focused on what needed to get done. The Day Of she was incredible, always anticipating what we needed before we realized, answering all the bridal party and parents questions with definitive answers (in a nice way), and keeping us fully on schedule without us even realizing it, so my fiance and I could really enjoy every minute of our wedding. Would definitely recommend Ashley for anyone that is looking into a Day of/Partial/Full Planner, she was a pro and we are SO happy we worked with her!
Life-Saver! It says a lot when, on such a big day as your wedding, you can put your trust in someone to make everything happen. From our first meeting I knew Ashley would be on top of it all. I seriously couldn't be happier with her attention to detail, managing all of our different vendors and producing such a seamless and fun event. Her professionalism and attention to detail helped to make our celebration even more fun, not to mention her fun, warm and calm presence. I HIGHLY recommend Ashley for your wedding or event coordinator.
Me and my husband are SO HAPPY we got Ashley as a day of Planner. If not for her I think all of us would have been lost in a daze during our day. She met with us a month out twice, sat with us for hours to get our timeline coordinated, coordinated with all vendors and the bridal and groom party letting them know when and where they should be so I didn't have too, - helped remind of us of things we needed/forgot with a list of personal items to bring for our day. She helped set up all of our decor, provided us tools to help coordinate our seating chart. Most of all she kept everyone on time day of, she helped all of us walk down the isle appropriately, and even smoothed out discrepancy's with the priest since it was a Catholic wedding. She kept me and my husband, and everyone at the wedding, informed on what was happening next and where we should be without being pushy, she would guide people to their seats, she reminded the people who needed to do speeches they were up next etc etc She stayed until the last vendor was left (well after we had gone) and helped take everything down and payed out all our vendors so we didn't have to. She was so nice and in such a positive mood that I think she even made me less anxious before I walked down the isle- she was so confident that I didn't worry about anything. I would recommend her a hundred times over, as there are probably things she did to help us we don't even know about. She is such a beam of joy and I really don't know what we would've done without her! Thank you Ashley!!!
Ashley delivers 100% on all the normal things you'd expect of a wedding planner: she's reliable, communicative, detail-oriented, experienced, and is calm and collected in the face of utter chaos. What made her the perfect planner for us was that she went above and beyond the basics that any other planner could have provided: she was charming, funny, had an individual sense of style, and not only was she completely non-judgmental about our oddball non-traditional ideas, she was completely supportive and PUMPED about them. Ashley completely understood what we were going for and was full of helpful tips and suggestions to help us achieve our own individual event. Although I'm sure she was extraordinarily busy with the NYC summer wedding season in full swing, her patience and attention when we e-mailed or talked to her made us feel like we were her only client. All of our family and friends LOVED her and kept remarking to us on how sweet and hardworking she was. We'd recommend her services to friends or strangers in a heartbeat.
Ashley is truly AMAZING! From our first meeting until the big day she consistently impressed us. She is so incredibly organized and creative. She kept every detail on track and helped create a design that felt too good to be true. She created the most beautiful custom dreamcatchers, chandelier and pillows. I'm convinced there is nothing she can't make happen. She has so much knowledge and experience that it was well worth the investment. She can also help with recommending the absolutely BEST vendors. She really helped bring our dream wedding to life. We could not have done it without her. I definitely recommend putting your wedding plans in her highly capable hands!
My wife and I went headstrong into our wedding thinking we could handle the majority of it ourselves. It was quite a daunting task, but Ashley stepped in ready to take the complete load off our shoulders. She was 100% trustworthy in making absolutely everything that we had dreamed of happen, and she did it with such a wonderful and bubbly attitude that we felt safe. We felt like our wedding vision was a bit different than everybody else's, but Ashley is such an amoeba that she can morph into any sort of task rabbit that you may need her to be. Planning this wedding was incredibly stressful, but Ashley made it the best night of our lives, and we were so very thankful to have her be a part of it. She's such a special person that makes everything organized and smooth, and does it all with a huge and genuine smile on her face.
My husband and I were married 5 years ago at City Hall, so for our fifth anniversary we decided to have a larger wedding that would incorporate the traditions, families, and friends that we were unable to include the first time. Accordingly, we were trying to keep costs low, but it quickly became apparent to us that we would need an additional hand -- especially as our wedding would incorporate 2 venues, and the reception venue didn't have an in-house event planner. Enter Ashley. Recommended to us by a friend in the industry, Ashley was an immediate fit with our wedding planning, understanding exactly what we were setting out to do. She understood our priorities and goals, and worked tirelessly to make sure we accomplished them. She was tough and firm with us when she needed to be, and a reassuring presence when we needed as well. Leading up to the wedding, we had several in-depth meetings where we talked through some of the issues we were facing with the somewhat-challenging space we had, and also collaborated on a number of Google Docs, which kept us organized and all on the same page. The timing of our wedding meant that we were unable to help set up the reception venue as everyone would be at the ceremony. Ashley handled the venue set-up with aplomb, making creative decisions where needed. It was wonderful to walk into the space with everything as we'd imagined it, and then spend the next few hours without having to worry about a thing. Ashley even managed to squeeze in some additional dancing time for us through her and our caterer's efficiency. Ashley was a fantastic day-of coordinator, and, on top of all that, very reasonably priced, especially given the peace of mind that we got for it!
We cannot thank Ashley enough for all of the hard work, creativity, and good cheer she put into making our wedding spectacular! It was the most amazing night, better than we could have ever imagined. We had germs of ideas of what we liked and wanted that Ashley turned into a fully bloomed vision—both through her own ingenuity and through the many marvelous vendors she recommended to us along the way. Her sense of humor and calm made everything easier. And on the night of the ceremony, Ashley saw to it that we enjoyed our own wedding—which we did!
Ashley was absolutely fantastic, from start to finish. We hired her to be our day of coordinator, and, with her guidance and support, we were able to see our wedding come to life with relatively little stress and with lots of creativity on her end. Ashley helped us with the non-sexy logistics like day of timeline planning, and she did it with excitement. She also helped us put the look and feel of the day into a real decor plan and she even crafted original decor items for the wedding. She wrangled our vendors with ease and respect, and she allowed us to focus 110% on the day of. We had total confidence in her and knew everything would go smoothly. We had so much fun planning with Ashley and would recommend her to absolutely anyone!
Ashley brought so much positive energy and attention to detail in helping us with our wedding. At a time when we were focused on all the obvious necessities, Ashley was incredibly helpful at helping us with all the small details for the wedding. As our day-of coordinator, she guided us through every part of the day/evening and we couldn't be more grateful to have had her with us!! xx
Ashley was a great planner and coordinator and such a joy to work with. She kept us all organized and balanced excitement and professionalism. She fit right in at our wedding and was both there for us and never in the way. Also, we did everything really last minute (we basically planned the event in two months), and Ashley was flexible with our needs and our timeframe. I would definitely recommend her!
The best thing about Ashley is amidst the whirlwind of wedding planning she always remains calm, collected, and capable. Her happiness was contagious and made everything so exciting. And she genuinely loves what she does, it shows not only on her face but in the little flourishes she brings with her to the table. We had a very DIY wedding with lots of elements that all had to come together for the day of, and Ashley brought it all together without a hitch. She made the day flow so magically, knowing exactly when each moment should happen down to the minute. We felt like we were in the best hands possible with her and you will too! The best thing to feel on your wedding day is like you don't have to lift a finger or do any work and Ashley did just this, allowing us to focus on the celebration while she turned the gears in the background.
Everything said in the previous reviews is true! Really cannot say enough good things about our experience with Ashley. She was our Day Of Planner this September, and went above and beyond every step of the way. Our wedding had the potential for some logistical issues, as it was in a venue upstate with no equipment, furniture, or decorations, and vendors coming from all over the place, but everything went so smoothly! Ashley arrived on Friday evening and stayed through Sunday afternoon, renting a car and hiring a wonderful assistant, helping with the rehearsal dinner and the morning after brunch...she even drove up with us the week before for a site visit. She was totally on point dealing with all the big aspects of the day, and also super happy to help with the little details (like two outfit changes for our dog...he looked amaaaaazing!). Such a pleasure to work with. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
My daughter hired Ashley for our 'day of coordinator'. I had never heard of anyone doing this before and thought perhaps this was an unnecessary expense. Boy was I wrong! As the mother of the Bride, I cannot express how invaluable Ashley was! She orchastrated everything, kept everyone on cue without being obtrusive. We had a few minor issues that she handled amazingly and the day went fabulously. My husband and I were able to thoroughly enjoy our daughters wedding! Thank you Ashley for everything! Feel free to give my name as a reference!
Ashley was terrific - calm, cool and so easy to work with. Her professionalism, experience, and passion for her work are obvious. She took on working through the order of the different Jewish rituals/traditions with ease, made sure the "little" day- of details (that we didnt think about!) were organized to a T, and ensured all the gifts, etc got back with us safely. She was an all around perfect day of planner - and allowed not only us, but also our family members to just celebrate, relax and enjoy the day. Couldnt have asked for better. ;)
Ashley was amazing and indispensable in making our wedding at the Green Building in Brooklyn exactly the day we hoped it would be. She is warm and fun, but most importantly, she is super-organized and took a lot of the stress out of the final weeks of planning by composing a detailed timeline of the day, contacting our family and vendors, and making sure all of the little, last-minute details were addressed. She's a great problem-solver, and while nothing even close to major went wrong during our wedding, Ashley was on-the-ball in tackling a couple of minor twists that popped up, just as we knew she would. My wife Amy and I could not recommend her more highly as a day-of-coordinator.
We hired Ashley to be our day-of coordinator through a referral and couldn't be happier with the amazing services she provided. Planning our wedding (with my mom ;) was one of the most stressful things I've ever done, and Ashley knew that dealing with my family, budgets, and what felt like a million details was slowly driving me insane. She made me feel so much more relaxed than I ever could have been without her incredible assistance -- both before the wedding and on the day itself. She helps with everything you can imagine and more and truly thinks of everything. Her attention to detail, charming personality, and professionalism make the actual wedding infinitely more enjoyable for the couple, but what's truly amazing is her positive attitude on a VERY long and demanding day. I'm pretty sure she had weddings two days in a row after ours, but when we ran into her at the venue (while she was working) she was STILL in a good mood. How do you do it, Ashley?? Please tell us your secrets. Thank you so much for your help; it was invaluable! - Blair & Brian
Ashley rocks!Reviewed on 9/01/2015 Caitlin T
Ashley is absolutely amazing. We used her for day-of coordination (month-of), and we came to the table with a lot of ideas. She walked us through everything and knew exactly how to help us make our ideas into a reality. She's highly organized and professional, and it is clear that she knows what she's doing. When our musician cancelled on us a few months before our wedding she was able to pull strings and find someone who could meet our budget while still doing an awesome job. On the day of the wedding she kept us both calm, relaxed, and having fun the entire day-- from set-up to ceremony to our end-of-the-night lavender toss. Everything flowed seamlessly and effortlessly. Seriously, everyone needs an Ashley on their wedding day!
Ashley Chamblin gave me the best wedding present of all, the ability to actually enjoy my own wedding. There are so many details involved with planning a ceremony and party like this that it causes an ever-present feeling of terror and dread. The second we hired Ashley as our day-of-coordinator, that feeling was gone. During our pre-wedding meetings, Ashley went over all the big details (schedule, vendors, etc.) with a fine-toothed comb. Then, day-of, Ashley took care of all the tiny details that I didn’t even know existed like timing our first dance to end before things got awkward and making sure my husband and I actually ate at the reception (she even took our food and drink orders the day before the wedding). Most importantly, I felt like Ashley was totally invested in making our wedding special. She made sure my grandmother’s broach made it on to my bouquet and set-up a cardboard cut-out of our dog (who couldn’t make it to wedding) by the stage. Because of Ashley, we had the perfect wedding AND we got to enjoy every minute of it. We couldn't have done it without her. Thank you so much Ashley!!! - Emily and Don
We hired Ashley as our Day-Of Coordinator. She was the absolute best! She was beyond professional and extremely well organized. She made us feel as though she always had our best interest in mind. We knew that she would handle everything with authority while still offering up a smile and a joke. What more can you ask for on what is arguably the most stressful/important day of your life?!? We couldn't have done it with out you Ashley! - Andres & Laura R
Ashley is just hands down the best! We used her day-of-coordination service and it was the best money we spent for our wedding. We would have been lost without her. Not only is she a riot (my whole family was in stitches during the rehearsal) but she's thoughtful and SUPER organized. She thinks of everything! When a sudden rainstorm threatened our outdoor ceremony, she came up with three options off the top of her head and any of them would have been gorgeous! She had the answer for every question and took care of everything. You absolutely cannot go wrong hiring Ashley! We love her!!!
