Get To Know Ashley Bourque, Your Nashville Wedding Planner
- Do you have any pet? YES! two brother puppies, Butch Walker and Zeek Braverman
- Do you have any favorite hobbies? I love going to concerts and traveling
- What is your favorite Sunday activity? Spending time with the hubby and pups, taking time to read, trying to disconnect in 2018 on Sundays.
- What is your favorite book or magazine? Girlboss was really inspiring, but I wouldn’t say it’s my favorite. The Giver is one of my favorites though!
- How would you describe your personal style? I think I am a good combination of boho and casual. Like, if you walked into Free People, I would wear any of that, without trying to feel like a hippie. I like to bring out personality, whether it’s in clothes, wedding decor, interior decorating, etc. I just think it’s important to have your personality shine through. For me, that’s clean lines, earthy, but also fun with some color thrown in!
Why I Love Weddings
Weddings have always been fascinating to me. To see two people’s dreams come true together is a truly magical thing. I love watching the simple details of the weddings…like the grandparents looking proud as ever to see their family continue for another generation, the friends so happy for the couple, and the groom as he watches his bride walk toward him. I have always been a romantic at heart and I believe everyone has a love story worth knowing. I love building relationships with the couples and incorporating their personalities into their day. I love how weddings can transform an otherwise simple space into something full of magic and heart. I love watching love. My passion for love stories, celebrating, and making every aspect of someone’s special day, a reality, paired with my dedication and eye for detail, make me confident in my ability to plan someone’s dream day. _ Ashley

NASHVILLE FAQ WITH ASHLEY
- What makes your team different from the other planners I am talking to?
We strive to build personal connections with all of the couples we work with. It’s important to us that this is a mutually beneficial relationship, and we want you to have the day of your dreams. We are attentive to every detail, but can also field situations with compassion and understanding. We put our hearts into this job and your day. We are happily ever after enthusiasts!
- I just need day-of. Do you offer that?
We try to keep our day of coordination at a 4 week point as well. Most “day-of” planning still requires some background info and communication with vendors. We want to make sure everything goes smoothly, instead of showing up the day of, and expecting you to explain everything on the day of your wedding. With that being said, our lead planner, Colleen, does offer a limited amount of day-of coordination!
- What exactly is full-service wedding planning and design?
Full Service planning and design is everything from a-z about your wedding. We are there to help you with designing the perfect day, and also there to execute it. We get you the best vendors for your needs, at the best prices. We are there to be a sounding board, a moral support pillar, and your advocate throughout the whole planning process.
- Can you help me with the design?
Yes, absolutely! It’s one of our favorite parts!
- What kind of response time do you have? How do you run your day to day communication?
The best way to get a hold of us is always through email, and we always reply within 24 hours at MOST. It’s a huge deal to be open with communication — so it’s typically more like 1-2 hours!
- Do you charge by the hour? Will my planning fee increase later in our time working together?
No. Our rates are flat fees, no matter your budget. The only reason something would increase is if it was not part of your original contract.
- Do you work with destination clients?
A good portion of the clients we work with are destination clients! With Nashville being such a destination, about 65% of our couples are traveling from elsewhere, and so are their loved ones — so we are well versed in destination clients. With that being said, we also travel frequently to OTHER destinations if you are based in Nashville, but planning an out of town wedding.
- Where do you plan weddings? Do you have some local venues you love?
Everywhere! We have some favorites that we would be happy to discuss with you, but we are willing to work anywhere your heart desires.
