I wanted to take a few minutes to express my gratitude to you for all you did for Courtney and Jay’s wedding. It seems so simple to say that they could not have done it without you, but simply, it is the truth. With Courtney’s mom so far away, and since I was the mother of the groom, I was extremely relieved that Courtney had the foresight to use you as her planner. I watched the two of you create what was to become a very special day – and it was certainly that. The challenges that you faced, along with the big last minute challenges that are sure to surface as any wedding approaches, proved to me that you have certainly chosen the right profession. I was impressed with your attention to detail and your professional manner with some of the problems....and some of the folks.... you had to deal with. Your ties to local vendors and your knowledge of the area will prove to be invaluable for your future clients. I particularly want to thank you for finding me the sparklers, even though it did not work out to use them. Mason and Cody came out grand on that deal! But mostly I was impressed with your literal "to-the-minute” timeline for the day of the wedding. The church can be beautiful, the music outstanding, the reception, flowers and food stellar......... but it all needs to come together at exactly the right time, all glitches resolved (or hidden!), for the bride and groom (and their mothers!) to revel in the joy and importance of the true reason we celebrate and share with our friends and family the rite of Marriage.
Best of luck to you Ashley, I see great things for you!
-Beth Owens, Mother of the Groom
There is so much I would like to say to thank Ashley Fox (Ashley Fox Events) for being such an integral part of our wedding day April 13 2013. Ashley is not only a friend but a true professional when it comes to organizing such an important and memorable day. I was not your typical bride, in that I neither am really great at planning nor did I have the time, and Ashley put my mind at ease on several occasions! I can honestly say-I don’t know what I would have done without her!
Ashley was a god send: she not only handled our flowers, linens, transportation, entertainment, venue contract and other important details, she also kept us organized with our small tasks and time lines that were necessary for the wedding to come off as we hoped. Her time management skills were exemplary; while she is a full time mother of two; without exception, she was always available and accessible to us and our many questions and requests. Ashley was able to take care of details that I had completely forgotten about, and was able to give extremely practical input into any decisions that we did choose to be involved in. She was gracious in her dealings with all wedding stakeholders (ie – THE PARENTS!!! ), and was transparent in all communications, be it financial or otherwise. She managed to create an elegant event that truly represented us, and she did it within budget.
There is so much that goes into planning a wedding, but what set Ashley apart was the ease in which she conducted herself on the actual wedding day. As stressful as a wedding day can be it was so important for me to be able to relax and know that someone had everything handled in regard to the timeline of the actual event. She was so accommodating to bridesmaids and groomsmen and everyone was where they needed to be at the right time. The compliments from guests that I received were a direct reflection of Ashley’s expertise in planning an event.
I would without hesitation recommend Ashley Fox Events to any bride that hopes for a truly lovely and memorable day. Thanks Ashley!!!!

I can't thank you enough for being everything we needed for my sisters wedding day. Looking back on her day I realize just how incredible it was to have all the help you provided. I will never forget how you went over & beyond to make her day so perfect. Having you attend to every detail allowed me & my family to enjoy the day and those memories are so very priceless to me!
Thank you so much,

Ashley was not only the Matron of Honor in my wedding - she helped make the entire planning process super easy and relaxing from day I started planning my wedding! Ashley has a passion for wedding planning, amazing organizational skills, and impeccable taste, which will be evident from the minute you meet her. She is one of the most caring people I have ever known and was there every step of the way to ensure that every part of my wedding day went exactly how I wanted. She was brilliant at stepping in to ask the right questions when needed and letting me know the items that I needed to be working on when. It was amazing to have the support of a friend to guide me through every step of the process!!! I would trust Ashley with the most important day of my life time and time again!

I cannot say enough to tell you how much I appreciate all that you did to make Alexa and Mikes wedding such a perfect day. As you know everything was last minute with the hopes that Alexa's father could be there but unfortunately he pasted away 2 weeks prior. You found a house on the beach to accommodate a large family and host a wedding for 50 people . You took care of everything in a matter of 3 weeks. Finding the property , the meals not only for the wedding but for the whole weekend. The flowers, music, decorations. Even finding a seamstress the day before the wedding to alter a dress that was picked up an hour before the wedding! Everything turned out perfect and you handled every detail and alleviated any stress what so ever. I would highly recommend you, you truly managed the impossible and made it a perfect day not only for Alexa and Mike but for everyone that attended.
Thank you Ashley,
Cathy Thomas, (Alexa's mother)
They say that your wedding day is the most special day of your life because you are not only starting a lifelong relationship but a family. On August 5th my entire life changed when my dad was diagnosed with cancer. As you know, we started planning our big day just 20 days ago and I can honestly say nothing mattered other than having my father walk me down the aisle to the man of my dreams; a man that he loved like his own. On August 14th, when my dad died after just a 9 day struggle with cancer, my family's life was shattered... I never thought I would be able to smile again during the month of August. Little did I know that you would enter Mike and I's life and create not only a wedding, but a weekend that brought smiles to families that were hurting so badly. Ashley, you are amazing at your job! But more importantly, you are able to bring families together and create happy memories that will live with them forever. Thank you from the bottom of our heart.
Ashley Fox was a professional from start to finish. When Chip and I first got engaged it was such an exciting time but then reality set in and I realized that I was going to need help in the planning process. I contacted Ashley and she immediately put my mind at ease about everything from flowers to song choices and let me know that she was there to make the most important day of my life as stress free as possible, and boy did she ever deliver!
Ashley was able to transform all of the ideas I had in my head into a beautiful day for Chip and I to treasure forever. Her multi- tasking skills are incredible and the whole day went off without a hitch. Even when the fire alarm went off during our reception Ashley was cool and calm and took control. We were both able to relax knowing that she was taking care of everything and we even got some great photos with the Raleigh Fire Department!
Having a wedding planner is the best decision we made while engaged. We knew we had chosen a professional who was there to cater to us and answer the hundreds of questions we had along the way and I would urge any and all brides to do the same.

Most beautiful wedding I have ever had the chance to be a part of. Ashley had everything organized and planned to perfection. Such a fantastic sense of style and professional demeanor. A dream to work with and awesome to watch her work. Everything came together so beautifully and seamlessly.

I got the phone call 12 days before the wedding. My response to the bride was "I wasn't planning to ever get ordained, but if you are asking me then I'd be glad to"... Eleven days later I'm running through the wedding rehearsal with one think on my mind.... Don't ruin this wedding!... That is were Ashley Fox Events came to my rescue. Ashley did an amazing job of making me feel comfortable knowing where i needed to be and what I needed to do to make the ceremony run smooth. The following day everything was perfect. The Bride and the guest were never aware of the last minute hiccups that will always pop up with any live event because Ashley did such an amazing job. Thank you Ashley!
My wedding day was the most wonderful day I could have ever imagined. She walked into what i thought was going to be a wedding nightmare after I had to part ways with a disasterous (to say it nicely) wedding planner a WEEK before my wedding. She made the impossible possible. Ashley saved not only my wedding but my sanity. Ashley Fox made the day go so smooth there wasn't a single thing to be done on my part but get down the aisle. Stress free and beautiful, every detail executed to perfection! Words are not enough to thank her for all her hard work and dedication to making my entire weekend spectacular. Everyone was complimentary of how beautiful the wedding was, no one had a clue that Ashley Fox Events had planned and executed almost all of it in less than a week!
Being an out of town bride and groom, we left our vision in the hands of Ashley to make our dream day come true. Ashley didn't let us down and exceeded our expectations from the perfect vendors to the set-up of the wedding. She even made a rainbow for us :) Ashley was a wonderful planner and we absolutely recommend her to any couple planning a wedding in the area! Thank you Ashley for helping us create the best.day.ever!
