Ashley has always loved to throw a good party. As a little girl her stuffed animals enjoyed over the top tea parties as she began sketching ideas for her own wedding by age 9. Her passion for design only grew as she collected binders of fashion, event and style inspiration- that now fill a shelf in her closet. With a dual degree in advertising and public relations, Ashley naturally gravitated towards events. After spending a couple years working on private and corporate events then planning her own wedding, she knew she was ready to dive deeper. In the nonprofit event world, Ashley worked on events that ranged from 20 to 5,000 attendees in both Arizona and California. With a desire to own their own business, Ashley and Meagan partnered up and Your Jubilee was born! Today, as Co-Owner and Event Stylist, she loves watching a client’s dream event come to life and thrives on finding creative ways to make your event absolutely one of a kind. When she isn’t dreaming up the perfect tablescape, Ashley likes to watch old movies, redecorate her home, spend time with family and friends and check out locally owned shops and restaurants.
If you could high five anyone, who would it be and why? Ryan Gosling… because he’s Ryan Gosling. Or Grace Kelly, but she doesn’t seem like the type to high five. Perhaps instead we could clink champagne glasses?

What is your favorite part about coordinating events? For me, it’s about the stories, whether it’s the couple that met through a friend, online or are rekindling a high school romance, I just adore hearing our couples love stories. The passion a couple has as they tell their story is such a testament to the honesty of their love. It such a beautiful reminder that every couple has lived their very own fairytale, and we get to be a part of the magic.
Meagan is a true lover and love and looks forward to celebrating life’s big moments with you.

While there she executed fashion shows, fundraising events, and campus socials. She knew she had found her niche and wanted to create beautiful events to help others celebrate life’s big moments. More recently, she has taken this passion to help plan and coordinate events for high-end retail corporations in Arizona. Meagan’s vast background is what brings creativity and style to every Your Jubilee event. As a native to Arizona, Meagan enjoys the outdoors, spending time with her husband and 3 dogs, and Arizona Cardinals football! Meagan looks forward to working with you and helping you create Your Jubilee.

What is your favorite part about coordinating events? My favorite part is the people! I love our YJ Brides & Grooms and love hearing their story. We have been blessed with some amazing couples and I love to hear their love story and see it through their eyes on their wedding day. Throughout the entire planning process it is fun to see them react to the amazing food during the tastings or get giddy when they begin the hunt for their perfect venue. To see their love unfold for each other and the families love for them on their wedding day is what pushed me to create a unique and memorable event for our couples.

Who inspires you most? I would have to say my mom is my true role model. From her I learned quickly what hard work, motivation, and commitment can result in. I strive to be just as fierce yet patient and loving as her.
If you could high five anyone, who would it be? It’s a tie! I would love to high five Ellen Degeneres and then do a quick little boogie with her. Not only does she have killer dance moves, but she is philanthropic and hilarious! She just goes to show, that it’s okay to be true to yourself. I would also love to high five Harry Potter. I believe the world would be better place if there was more magic and kindness. I am obsessed with anything Harry Potter related. How obsessed? On a scale of 1- 10..9 and ¾.
