Inspired by the love of beautiful celebrations and the people behind them, we believe that the most memorable moments are a perfect balance between gorgeous details, professionalism and hard work. We believe in bringing our clients’ dreams alive, curating each event to be a reflection of their personalities and the stories that brought them together.

Since starting Festoons and Flourishes in 2014, our overall goal is for you to love your entire experience, from the beginning of the planning to the moment you say goodnight to your guests. Through building lasting relationships and a strong foundation of trust with our couples, we help to guide them through each step of the planning process, all the while managing both the creative vision as well as the logistical aspects of their big day.


why we do what we do

Due to amount of care, attention and time we devote to each of our clients, we accept only a select amount of events each year, ensuring we maintain exceptional customer service and the high standards we have set for ourselves.



antique lover, art history buff, classic literature admirer

After living in England and Russia for most of her childhood and graduating with a BFA in Art & Design from the University of Michigan, Ashley draws aesthetic inspiration from old world influences in classical artwork, gothic architecture and European literature.

After planning her own wedding in 2011 and with over 10 years of experience in the hospitality and catering industry, Ashley launched Festoons and Flourishes in 2014, focusing on creating beautiful and logistically impeccable celebrations for her clients.

Ashley’s events are romantic, soft and sophisticated coupled with a passion for proper etiquette and glamorous vintage details.

When she is not working, you can find Ashley snuggling with her husband and puppies, antiquing, gardening, baking, eating popcorn and tackling house projects in her 1920’s fixer-upper.
