Ashley Marulli

Owner and Lead Coordinator

With 10+ years of Special Event and Wedding Management experience, I understand the scope of work and valuable time it takes to create the most perfect day- YOUR big day. From our first planning meeting, to your last dance, it is my mission to make sure that you are a guest at your own event. I was a bride before I was a Venue Owner and Planner, so it is my goal to provide the wedding of your dreams, while staying mindful of every financial comfort zone. Think of me as your one stop shop wedding planning guru and built in best friend throughout our journey of creating your best day ever.

In my time away from work, I enjoy spending time with my husband , Chris, and our three young boys. I enjoy time on the lake, date nights, Starbucks Oatmilk lattes, and anything Christian Louboutin!
