Meet Ashleigh!


Lover of all things sweet, beautiful, and rose gold!

Hello! I am Ashleigh, the owner of Sweetly Southern Events. Wedding planning is stressful but that is where I come in! After years of experience managing large scale events for the federal government, I decided I needed to focus my passion on helping others. I feel in love with the Wedding industry while working at my mother’s Bridal Shop and knew that I was meant to do something greater! I founded Sweetly Southern events and began using my gifts to help create beautiful, memorable weddings. My passion is fueled when I see the direct impact of my hard work on the smiling faces of beautiful brides as they enjoy the wedding they have dreamed about for years!

Allow me to help guide the process and hopefully take a little of the stress off your shoulders so you can focus on what truly matters, continuing to build a strong foundation for your marriage.

I am a Southern woman, a devoted wife, and a proud mama to two very loveable boys. Despite my paleness, my goal is be make it to the Caribbean as often as possible! I dream of laying on the beach looking out at the beautiful crystal clear water and enjoying a great book!

But enough about me, I want to know about you and your vision for your big day! I am so excited for you and your fiancé! Contact me today so I can join in the celebration and learn more about how I can assist in making your dream day a reality.


“Ashleigh is professional and obviously very passionate about what she does. She and I met on a commuter train a little over nine years ago when I was planning my own wedding. I love how we quickly became friends and have continued our friendship throughout the years.  She is responsive; usually replying to my messages and phone calls right away. She’s a top-notch planner who has everything organized and under control. Though we are friends, I also worked closely with her when she photographed my family. I never felt stressed or worried while working with her; she has amazing attention to detail and could bring my ideas to life. Her personality is so bubbly and she is just a joy to be around. I highly recommend her and Sweetly Southern Events!” – Laura Bennett
