As a lover of gathering people together, an avid Diet Coke drinker, lifetime desert dweller, and seeker of the simple joys in life, creating magical moments for people is the absolute highlight for Jennifer. She is the momma to four amazing humans...three who are married and the last one off to college. She is Nana to four delightful grandsons, and wife to the very best. She loves to surround herself with creative souls and is always on the hunt for the next way she can spread some light and love and make the world a better place. Thoughtful details and being a bride's hype girl make her the happiest!
Ashley is a gypsy at heart, having grown up in Connecticut and later moving to Florida, Tennessee and now calling the Arizona desert her home. Her passion for events started early in life leading her to start a career in Advertising and Marketing after completing her Bachelor's and Master's degree in Communication. The last 6 years Ashley worked her way up from a Social Media Coordinator to Creative Director and Lead Wedding Planner + Stylist for an all inclusive wedding venue in Nashville, TN where her work was published worldwide and won numerous awards. When she's not dreaming up Pinterest worthy designs and putting together dream days, she is cuddling her pug, Gibson, grabbing coffee from local coffee shops, or planning her next glamping adventure and hiking with her husband.
Simple Means Events started with the magic of love woven into the very fabric from which it was cut. For Jennifer and her family, family always takes center stage. So what happens when a stay at home mom, needs to step up and support the family? Her kids band together along with their partners and put together a business plan to keep Jennifer at home for the youngest while capitalizing on her party planning skills and crafty nature! In 2014, a family outing to Top Golf, put the wheels in motion for Simple Means to come to life. With lots of heart, hard work and everyone pitching in - her family came together even working as the very first crew. It's been said that Jennifer's magic garage always had just the right thing for the just right person, a magic that continues over 6 years later to bring dream days into real life dreams come true.
