I never had one moment of worry or uncertainty while Ashley was working the details for the wedding. She had wonderful suggestions and impeccable follow through; she even gave birth to her beautiful son and never missed a beat! I have had numerous letters and emails from local and out of town guests remarking on the beauty of the venue and the attention to detail She was wonderful; her crew worked tirelessly. We were so fortunate to have Ashley as our planner and friend.

Ashley and her team at Magnolia Events were amazing. I only did the month of service but they still gave it their all and made sure that my wedding went off without a hitch. I appreciated their professionalism, organization and attention to detail. I definitely couldn't have done it without them!

Ashley and her crew did a beautiful job planning and organizing my daughters wedding. We had complete confidence in her abilities and this gave us peace of mind at a very critical time. She is confident and calm in all situations. Ashley is the consummate professional and comports herself as such. Highly recommended.

Ashley did a great job putting on a party and hired our band, The Coastal Breeze Band to perform for her clients. I have met many top planners and the event was top notch and well planned and was as smooth as any I've ever attended! She handled all of the details for us and I enjoyed working with her and her staff. I recommend Ashley and the staff at Magnolia Events to anyone who needs a real pro on their team! Can't wait until the next one!

Ashley was so helpful pulling my whole vision for the wedding together, and she was a great liaison between me and the vendors. Her team was professional and helpful for the day of coordination, and we really couldn't have done it without them. Thanks so much Ashley!

My husband and I were married on June 23, 2012 at Lake Norman and the day was perfect! Ashley and her team at Magnolia Events handle everything with vendors, set up, time schedules and made sure our wedding day went as smooth as possible. I had no worries or stress because I knew her and her team would take care of it all.

Prior to the wedding day, Ashley met with me several times to go over vision and theme that we wanted for our wedding. Anything I wanted to incorporate she had an idea for. She also helped with coordinating vendors. With a full-time job, it was hard to communicate with all the vendors and it was extremely helpful to have her set up meetings or go over specific questions or contracts that I could not do.

I would definitely recommend (and have) Magnolia Events to any future bride. Ashley has a passion for weddings and events and you can surely tell in the way she handles every detail. Our wedding was a dream come true!

My husband and I got married April 28, 2012 and we had an amazing wedding. I cannot thank Magnolia Events (Ashley Chicklo and her team) enough! From day one Ashley and her team were extremely helpful in answering all of my many questions, as well as guiding me on how to be budget conscious and still get the most bang for my buck with all the details and pizazz that I dreamt up for my wedding day.
As you all know, every wedding has a disaster that occurs. On the Friday afternoon before our wedding, we learned that our reception flowers had been lost and we had to find flowers fast! Cool and collected, Ashley went to work for a stressing bride and found the most beautiful flowers. She made sure that we had the flowers I wanted in the color I wanted, and I could not have been more pleased.

Needless to say, my husband and I had the wedding of our dreams, and it was perfect! Yes I said PERFECT!!!! We had a great group working to ensure that our day was filled with no stress, lots of fun, and our wish was their command. We cannot say enough great things about Magnolia Events, but we can say this.....

If you want a team working for you who truly has a passion for weddings and events look no further. Magnolia Events is first class from start to finish, and the team of people are so talented! Would definitely refer them to my family and friends!!!!

Hiring Magnolia Events was the best wedding planning decision I made! While I had made many of the "big" decisions when I met Ashley, she quickly embraced my vision and made it hers. She added several touches to the overall experience of my guests that made them feel welcome, comfortable, and special. She also added several very tasteful suggestions for the wedding ceremony and reception decor which really added to the events. Best of all, once I handed over all of the planning at the designated time (the beginning of our rehearsal), Ashley ran the next 24 hours flawlessly. I did not have a single worry. Everything that I needed was where I needed it. Her staff helped me with everything from having food, to organizing my stuff, to making sure everything got into the right vehicles when the event was over. Ashley is extremely organized, efficient, and fun! I could not have asked for a better wedding planner.

I can say without exaggeration that my wedding would not have been such a success and wonderful experience without Ashley Chicklo and Magnolia Events. In a matter of months, I was faced with moving to a new state, remodeling a home, starting a new job, and planning my wedding. Without hesitation, I hired Magnolia Events—I knew immediately upon meeting her she was perfect.

No detail or task was too much trouble. She thought of everything before I could even consider it myself. Ashley spent time with me to truly understand what I was looking for in a wedding, and took it from there. Her ambition, hard work, and exceptional organization made my wedding exactly the event I was looking for, and eliminated so much stress for me.

She has any resource you need for your wedding or event. We had a destination wedding in Charleston, South Carolina, and she knew where to go and what to ask for every part of the event—from the flowers to caterers to beach property rentals and more.

I recommend Ashley and Magnolia Events to anyone looking to make their wedding or event a very special, memorable success!
