Our Team


A College of Charleston graduate in Hospitality and Tourism Management, Ashley has spent
years gaining practical knowledge in the areas of event management, planning and design. Previously, she worked for one of Charleston's most well-renowned hospitality groups, as well as for a full-service event design and planning firm, where she learned valuable planning and management experience.

To further her industry knowledge and experience, Ashley joined the sales team for a premier event rental company. After getting married and starting a family of her own, Ashley decided it was time to return to her planning roots and joined the Ashley Nicole Events team as a Lead Planner. Having worked extensively in all sides of the event industry, Ashley has a deep understanding of venue locations, preferred vendors and rental trends. This allows her the ability to create a truly unique event, keeping tradition, quality and the purpose of marriage at the heart of it all.
