With over 10 years of Outer Banks wedding experience, I'm ready & able to take your wedding ideas and turn them into a reality, all while making it easy for you!

I love that every wedding is unique! I don't have a "style" because I love getting to create them all whether it be romantic, boho, classic, modern or whatever reflects your wedding style. Incorporating touches of each couples' story into their wedding details is one of my favorite things! 

The Southern Hospitality Weddings team offers partial & full planning services for weddings of any size and style.

I highly recommend getting her all inclusive package even if you don't think you need it. My parents have had a home in OBX since the 80s, and I went to school for Hospitality so we thought we knew it all but Ashley is a wizard!
She kept the wedding on schedule without us feeling rushed. I felt so relaxed and was able to enjoy our wedding so much thanks to her.

Ashley is seriously one of a kind. I am so grateful for her passion, knowledge, eye for detail, patience and friendship.
