Born and raised in a small town in Tennessee, Ashley always knew her future would be based in Nashville. She graduated in December of 2012 from Middle Tennessee State University with a bachelor’s degree in Organizational Communication. After being introduced to the Nashville wedding industry through an internship with Wedding 101 in 2010, it sparked Ashley’s passion for events, especially weddings.
Her drive and eagerness to learn earned her positions with Elliott Events, Historic Cedarwood, and H Three Events all before turning 22. Ashley has been part of the execution of over 75 weddings. Whether it is organizing timelines, coordinating, contacting vendors, hanging drape, or making bridal bouquets, Ashley has had experience from all aspects of the industry.
Two months before her college graduation, on one of her regular visits to the Wedding 101 studio, a little something called fate happened, and she was told to apply for a full time position. Today, Wedding 101 brides and vendors know her as Ashley #2, Harry (Only by Tiffany), “The Other Ashley”, or “The Younger Ashley.”
