She commanded and steered her team expertly.

What I loved most about Ashley was how organized, light-hearted, and yet professional she always remained throughout the process and on the day-of; she commanded and steered her team expertly along with all the 10+ vendors we had working for us.

Meet the Team

our story

Northern California natives, Courtney and Ashley have been best friends for 20 years. This bond has allowed for a clear understanding of each others thoughts and processes and makes working together flawless. Their first event together was way back in high school producing the Senior Fashion Show Fundraiser. They loved the adrenaline and creativity and hoped they could one day make this a career. Courtney started her planning path working for a local wedding planner while she attended and graduated from the University of Hawaii. Ashley too worked for a local wedding planner while she attended and graduated from the University of California, Santa Barbara. They reunited in the Bay Area and have been planning weddings together for 8 years. When not working, you can find them enjoying time with their husbands and kids, eating and drinking at the area’s finest, or planning their next travel getaway. They love great food and wine, are suckers for a good cup of coffee or craft cocktail, and look for any excuse for a luxury hotel stay.

Courtney 

Being married to her high school sweetheart, Courtney has a soft spot for all love stories. Her warm and positive demeanor make everyone she works with confident and comfortable through
every part of the planning process. Creating a flawless wedding that captures the bride and grooms personality is her specialty. 

Courtney graduated from the University of Hawaii and it was there in the tropical paradise where she first started working weddings. She moved home to the Bay Area and worked in the luxury hotel industry for a few years before joining forces with Ashley in 2014 to plan weddings in picturesque Northern California. 

Courtney loves her work and feels lucky to be able to share her knowledge of this region with her clients. Her appreciation for what wine country has to offer allows for expertise in scouting idealistic locations, and world-renowned wine and food. In her spare time, you can find her staying fit at her Crossfit gym and spending time with her husband Jack, two young children, Lucy and Hudson, and their dog, Captain. Courtney knows there is something special for every couple in Northern California and loves finding that for the bride and groom.

Owner & Principal Planner

Ashley loves Love! A romantic at heart, she loves creating an authentic and beautiful wedding for each one of her couples. A beautiful design, a well assembled timeline, and fun energy during a wedding is what makes her skills in the wedding industry so strong and enjoyable to be a part of. With 12 years experience planning and designing weddings, her perfectionistic yet calm demeanor ensure a flawlessly executed wedding with the dedication to make each wedding her best one yet. 

A natural entertainer, when not working you can find her at her home cooking and entertaining for her family and friends, there is rarely an empty home (or empty glass) at her house! She finds her inspiration for event design from fashion, interior design, and traveling. With three rambunctious, active little boys, her work is her feminine, artistic release and the passion for what she does really shines through.

Owner & Principal Planner

Caroline is an integral component to our day-of wedding team, as well as the younger sister to Principal Planner, Courtney. She has also known Ashley for many years and therefore can anticipate the needs of both. She has been assisting weddings since 2014 and has the needs of our planners and bridal party down to a science. Thanks to her experience she is able to give Courtney and Ashley more time to spend with the bridal party and groomsmen while she perfects every aspect of the design and set up. Caroline thrives in the wedding atmosphere and can still be found to shed a tear or two during ceremonies and toasts! When not assisting weddings, she works as a travel agent, and in her free time she can be found walking around her North Beach neighborhood in search of pizza!
