When did you join the Planned Perfection team?

How did you get involved in the wedding and event industry?

 

Ashley joined Planned Perfection in 2015 after being a Planned Perfection bride!  She has always had a love for design, decor and details.

While I was planning my own wedding (I had already contracted Planned Perfection) Jonnaysa posted that she was looking for interns for the current wedding season.  I set up an interview.  She had me interview with Diana, since she kind of already knew me.  I got married on May of 2015 and started interning in June.

 

Favorite current or upcoming wedding trend?

I'm loving the floral backdrops I have been seeing lately, whether it is a full flower wall or flowers and greenery dripping down almost like a curtain.

 

Any trend you’d like to see left in 2018?

I would love to see couples start to incorporate bolder colors.

 

What is your favorite part of the planning process?

For Day of clients, I love when I get their questionnaires back and go over their set up details and can start seeing their day as they do

For planning clients, I love the design aspect.  Hearing how they see their day, looking at their Pinterest pictures and putting it all together with local vendors.

 

Best piece of advice for a newly engaged couple starting to plan their wedding?

Envision how you want to FEEL and the ambiance you want around you at different points of the day and build everything around that.

 

Favorite reception song? The one you dance to in the back when no one is watching...

I'm always down for a good Beyoncé song, but lately I catch myself when 24K Magic by Bruno Mars comes on.

 

Favorite flower?

Right now I am obsessed with Protea flowers.  I believe there is a King Protea and a Queen Protea.

 

When you aren’t creating timelines and alphabetizing escort cards, what can we find you doing?

I just moved into Lancaster City in June of 2018, so I am exploring the city...the restaurants, the market, the art and music scene, the coffee shops!
