We love getting to know all of our clients and developing personal long lasting relationships with them. Especially with Weddings, we spend a lot of time learning about our client's backgrounds, lifestyles, families and ensuring everything about their day is personal to them! Part of our consultation process when getting to know new clients is telling them about us and our story. It's very important that they feel we are experienced in the Wedding industry, but also that we have similar personalities to make the process as fun as possible! Ashley has been working for Kelly Elizabeth Events for over 3 years and continues to dazzle clients with her positive attitude and attention to details. She can always be counted on to execute every logistic with a passion and expertise that allows her clients to enjoy their day without a worry. We love having her on the team and here's little bit more about her!
Ashley Auger - Wedding Coordinator
What drew you to working in the events industry? In the events industry, no two days are ever the same and this was a huge draw for me. I’m not the type of person that can sit at a desk for 8 hours a day - so I love the constantly changing scenery, getting to interact with new clients and building relationships with vendors. Working in the events industry can be high stress at times, but I love quick problem solving and thinking on my feet!
What type of Weddings are your favorite? For me, the most special and meaningful Weddings are the ones that are unique and truly reflect the couple and what is important to them. There are so many creative ways to add small personal touches to your Wedding and I enjoy getting to learn about our couples through the planning process and trying to find ways to incorporate the things they love into their Wedding day. My favorite Weddings are the ones a little outside the norm and I love the challenge of making these visions a reality for our couples. What’s a dream venue or destination where you’d love to plan a Wedding? This one is tough! There are so many places in the world I would love to plan a Wedding and an International Destination Wedding is definitley on the bucket list! Although planning International Destination Weddings comes with its own set of difficulties, I would love the challenge to plan in a different country and build relationships with other vendors and event professionals across the globe. And getting to explore a new city while there for the Wedding is always a great perk! More locally, I would love to do a Wedding at The Boston Public Library. The outdoor courtyard is gorgeous, and I’m obsessed with Reed Hall. Someday hopefully!
What’s your biggest piece of advice for Bride’s planning their Wedding?
Focus on the bigger picture. When couples are planning their Wedding it can be easy to get caught up in all the little decisions. Your Wedding day is supposed to celebrate you two as a couple and the love you share! While picking out flowers and décor can be fun, that’s not the most important part. It can be tough when dealing with pressure from friends and
family, but this day should reflect who you are, so don’t forget that!
Also, hire a Day-of Wedding Coordinator! Even if you have the planning part down on your own, having someone there the day-of your Wedding to make sure your big day runs smoothly and is stress-free is priceless.
What do you like to do when you’re not planning Weddings?
I’m a bookworm so in my free time I love reading and spending time perusing local bookshops. I also enjoy traveling and learning about different cultures and food of the world, cooking and spending time with my family. You will also never catch me without a cup of coffee in my hand!
