Love Notes


If you are reading this review you must be considering hiring Ashley. My suggestion is to stop reading and hire her…. quickly!! My husband and I hired Ashley for our 2020 May wedding. Ashely was present every step of the way and was always able to provide insight and guidance. Ashley kept together all the dates and timelines and had everything we wanted and needed. The pandemic hit of course and Ashley didn’t even skip a beat with her help and guidance to get things rescheduled, guidance on timelines, and emails to our guests. We pulled off an Alfresco (tent less outdoor wedding) which really reflected me and my partners love and connection(thanks to Ashley). Ashley rocked it the day of our wedding and I had ZERO nerves about how smoothly things would run with her running the show :) We knew that that for every meeting Ashley would hold it down for us. We are very sad our wedding is over; she helped us make it so special and she feels like our family. 💗 Looking forward to other special events to hiring her!!!


100000% Recommend

I don't even know where to begin with Ashley. She came on board 3 weeks before my wedding. 3 WEEKSS!!! Due to very unfortunate circumstances with a month of coordinator I had hired previously. She absolutely killed it!! I had so much anxiety but as soon as I hired her that was all gone. We talked on a Friday and by some miracle, she was able to attend my final walk-through the next day. She asked all the right questions and took so many notes. When the big day came I literally sat there... I was not needed for one thing. I never thought I could be that relaxed on that day. Everything was done perfectly. If you are going back and forth about hiring a coordinator seriously do it!! And make sure it's Ashley and her team!!


Our Wedding Angel

Ashley is an absolute miracle worker. Our wedding was absolutely flawless. We keep saying how there isn’t a single thing we would have changed. We had no stress or worries, Ashley was on top of everything. It is very clear that she loves what she does, the amount of thought she puts in to everything is incredible. If you are looking for a coordinator, hands down Ashley all the way!!!! Thank you for making our day magical and a dream come true!


Must Hire! AAE is Amazing!

Ashley and her team were a joy from start to finish. AAE communication was so helpful and so timely, which was refreshing during this crazy time for event planning! AAE is so gifted in their industry: they were able to suggest better ideas that didn’t even occur to us to help elevate our vision, they handled vendor communication in our best interests, they assisted us, our families, and wedding party with anything we needed, and helped execute our timeline and vision perfectly. If anything needed attention, they handled it so that we and our loved ones could relax. We felt so loved and taken care of. AAE coordination is a must for any Hampton Roads wedding. Ashley and her team are amazing and we are so happy that we trusted AAE! It was a beautiful day.


Life/wedding saver

Ashley-Adrien Events definitely stepped up and guided us (from single to HAPPILY MARRIED) through from beginning to end. The support and professionalism was endearing and unmatched!!!!!


Can’t imagine doing it without them

I cannot possibly recommend Ashley-Adrien highly enough. I was on the fence about needing a day of coordinator because it felt like I was already doing most of the advance work anyway and it’s a bit of an extra expense. But it was 110% worth it. Ashley and Tiffany took my very minimal instruction— which was honestly a wave of the arm and a “you know, do stuff with all of the stuff on that table and in that corner!”— and made my dream a reality. I didn’t handle or worry about a single thing on my wedding day, freeing me up to spend the entire time with family and friends. Our family and guests even noticed and commented on how amazing they were. Even if you’re not totally sure you need a day of coordinator, I suggest hiring Ashley-Adrien.


Would hire again in a heartbeat!

Ashley was by far the best money I spent on my wedding. She took so much stress off me and went above and beyond what she was contracted to do. She is always on your side during the wedding planning and will do whatever is needed to pull off your special day. From the moment I hired her I was less stressed. Her calmness, competence, incredible attention to detail, and lovely personality made her the perfect person for the job. During the wedding day, she was pretty much my fiance's and my best friend, because she handled all problems and complaints so that he and I didn't have to, and out of everyone there she alone looked after our basic needs in making sure we had moments of much-needed quiet and privacy, food and drink (if not for her we wouldn't have gotten to eat on our wedding day!), and blister relief pads. When we came to the reception from an hour of photos outside in the heat, Ashley had our favorite drinks, an air-conditioned room, and a platter of food waiting for us as soon as we walked in. She did things like negotiate with my vendors on my behalf, act as a sounding board for my ideas, comforted and calmed me during all the wedding stress and frustration, and had the venue decorated according to my exact specifications. She always knew immediately what I wanted and envisioned for the wedding probably even better than I did, and she made it happen.
My now-husband and I have been singing her praises ever since, and we both agree she is the best at what she does. Our guests loved her as well, as she was discreet and friendly and not bossy or intimidating like some coordinators. I would hire her again in a heartbeat, and will be recommending her to anyone planning a wedding!


Amazing and Organized

Ashley is simply amazing. We selected her as a day-of coordinator, but she was readily available at any time and really got into the details about a month before. She did an amazing job putting the timeline together and thinking of issues I didn't. Friends and vendors who helped set up found her to be calm, collected, and on top of things throughout the process. Hiring Ashley was the BEST money we spent for the wedding!


The best day of coordinator ever!
Ashley was amazing with her service. She was organized, dedicated, and very caring. She made sure everything ran smoothly and on-time. She was on the ball about everything that had to be done during the planning process. She even got us a wedding gift. I wouldn't recommend anyone else BUT her, since she was excellent!


Ashley and her team are wonderful!! My husband and I were so happy to have found her and could not have been more pleased with our experience. Not only is Ashley very personable and easy to talk to, but she is incredibly professional, organized, and really knows what she's doing. She will make you feel as relaxed as you can be on your wedding day. When things go wrong, she handles it! During our ceremony we had some unexpected music being played from a nearby home and she took care of it as fast as possible, and the rest of the ceremony was beautiful. Ashley also gave us some money saving tips that really helped our overall wedding costs. She is a gem. We will miss her!


Ashley was absolutely fantastic. She was easy to work with, very detailed, and took care of everything for us that we didn't want to deal with on the wedding day. She was prompt and very hard working. Definitely recommend her to anyone for their wedding or special event.


Just let her know what you want and she will handle the rest!

Ashley was awesome when it came to organizing our babies baby shower. She planned the whole thing all we needed to tell her was, where the place was? Who was coming? How many people are coming? And if you had any preferences for the baby shower. She took care of the rest from planning to setting up and making sure people were comfortable. You won’t regret choosing her to organize your event!


My husband and I hired Ashley-Adrien Events as a day-of coordinator for our wedding. Ashley was amazing to work with! She was quick to respond to emails, was on top of everything, helped ease my stress, and was always available to meet with me and/or vendors at any time. Ashley truly went above and beyond what she was contracted to do and did everything to make sure our big day went completely smoothly so that I did not have to worry. I would (and have) recommended Ashley to anyone planning an event.
