Im Ashley, creator of Ash and Oak! Im a 28 year old wife and mama from the Cleveland Area. Like a lot of brides, I fell in love with planning my wedding. It was everything I dreamed of, I left my wedding thinking "this is what I want to do forever, I want to be apart of making other people weddings just like ours... a dream come true". I let me feelings settle for quite some time. Prayed, dreamed, helped other people with their weddings, and after 4 years that passion was still burning inside me. So here we are, Ash + Oak has been born and we couldn't be more thrilled to be here!
I’m Shelby, assistant planner for Ask and Oak! I am a fresh out of high school & college student born and raised in the Cleveland Ohio area! Like almost every little girl I dreamed of the day, I would meet my prince charming and planned out every little detail of my dream wedding. Even though I have never planned a wedding of my own, I am excited to be a part of every little girl's dream wedding to their prince charming. After a year of trying to decide where my future with events would be, an amazing friend made the connection between Ashley & I! I could not be more excited to jump into this position and be a part of so many special days!
Coordinating my first wedding was a whirlwind. At the time it was just a little side hustle for a friend because everyone knew I was good at planning events. The feeling of seeing all the hard work pay off was so dang satisfying, BUT what made it all worth it was knowing I was able to give the couple peace of mind that every freaking thing is taken care of during their day. Too me, that is what I love the most. Seeing my couples at ease, relaxed and actually enjoying their day is freaking priceless.
If you want more than just a “wedding coordinator” or a “wedding planner” that is what I am all about. I am here to be your hype girl, your right hand, and your freaking best friend through all. this. I want to get excited over your wedding dress choice and rejoice with you when you finally chose your bridesmaids colors. Let’s chat over some good food, good drinks and let’s do the dang thing.
It's me again, the "Ash" part of Ash and Oak. I included my name in my brand because I want you know that I am personally invested in your big day!
"Oak", why oak? Biggest question I get these days! Oak trees are the strongest trees talked about in the Bible. With many roots that reach wide and deep. That is what I want to do in my business. Bless and serve you in a time that can be stressful. The Hebrew word for Oak is derived from the word providence and for the Jews providence meant that God directed every step and every detail of creation. That is what I want to be able to do for you on your big day, Let you sit back, relax, while I direct every step and every detail!
