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.

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. 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.

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.

It seems so quirky and right up my alley of places to visit. Plus when people are there they always post pictures of food, I’m into that.
Who is your go-to band or artist when can’t decide on something to listen to? I don’t have a specific artist, but when I don’t know what to listen to I always find myself turning on late 2000s R&B like Ne-Yo and young Chris Brown. Love them.
What is your favorite part of a wedding? My favorite part of a wedding is the toasts. I can feel the love in the room when the couple has their loved ones share stories, laughs, and advice.

Who is your go to band or artist when can’t decide on something to listen to? Drake, especially his Take Care album on repeat, and oldy but a goody!
What is your favorite part of a wedding? My favorite part of a wedding is when the bride and groom exchange their vows and come together as one. The commitment that couples take to love each other, take care of one another, and to go through all of life with each other is something so special and sweet. Through their vows you get a peek of their relationship and how deeply rooted their love is. Father daughter dances are always a good tear jerker too.
