First of all….. Amazing, wonderful, hardworking and bomb-diggity are all understatements for Ashlee Erlinger. Second of all…..I am active duty Air Force and my fiance and I moved to Hawaii about 1 month after we got engaged. We had the difficulty of being far from family, far from where we were getting married and we were 6 hours time difference behind everyone else in St Louis. Needless to say, I needed some help making a wedding come together and happen. I found Ashlee as a recommendation from a friend of a friend and I knew I was so lucky to have found her right off the bat. I could call/text/email her at any time of the day or night and she would respond asap, she took care of any need I had right away and I always knew I could call her if I was starting to feel overwhelmed, stressed or just down right sad that I was planning my wedding from so far away from my family. She became more of a friend AND a wedding planner. She knew what we wanted our wedding day to look like/feel like/etc. and she did everything she could to make that happen. Every single detail Ashlee had an answer to. She was absolutely amazing helping me plan everything several months out from the wedding. I only got to meet Ashlee about 3 times over the course of this entire planning process because I could only come home with limited time, and each of those times it was like being with an old friend. She was there for my dress fittings, she shed some tears when my mom gave me the sweetest sentimental necklace and she moved mountains to meet with me for a couple of hours since I was literally only in town for 1 week. Ashlee is just truly a good person and would do anything to help any of her brides. When we would call vendors to look into having them do this or that and we would tell them who our wedding planner is… all of there responses were “awww we LOVE ashlee!” or “goodness we love working with Ashlee!”. She is so well known in the area and everyone agrees with us that shes amazing. On our wedding day, it was the most laid back, relaxed, stress free day. I did not have one person coming up to me asking me where this or that was or what to do, Ashlee always intercepted them and answered everything right away. My groom, my parents and I were all absolutely stress free. The day went wonderfully and, as cliche as it may sound, it was everything we could have ever imagined our wedding to be. None of it would have happened or came together so gracefully without Ashlee and I know that her and I will remain friends in the future. Any bride getting married in St Louis, I can assure you that you will not find a more caring, sweet, hardworking and focused wedding planner and she will make your wedding perfect. Love you, Ash, and I am so thankful our paths crossed… thanks for making our day wonderful. Photo Courtesy of Kelly Park Photography
