INFO FOR WEDDING PLANNING

What types of weddings do you accommodate?
Civil, Destination, Double Weddings, Eco-Friendly / Green, Military
What wedding planning services do you offer?
Day-of Coordinator, Full Planning, Partial Planning
What style of wedding do you specialize in planning?
That is a great question! Every single Bride of ours has different tastes and preferences. We have done very traditional weddings in elegant ballrooms to ceremonies on beaches and casual receptions. We have even helped coordinate a "gothic-style" wedding and a "barn-yard" country-side wedding. All of them have been fantastic and seem to make our Bride's extremely happy.
What sizes of weddings have you coordinated in the past?
Our Bride's weddings have ranged in size from 50 guests all the way up to over 400 guests. It really comes down how many guests our Bride's invite and then we assist them in booking a venue to accommodate their needs.
Which venues have you worked at or are familiar with?
We have worked with several locations in Orange County including the Richard Nixon Library, Westin South Coast Plaza, Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach, Surf and Sand Resort, Muckenthaler Mansion, Center Club in Irvine, and many other venues and private residences. We have also coordinated weddings in Hawaii, Florida, and Texas.

Hands down best, vendor that we hired for our August 9th wedding! Agape planning was a preferred vender from the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach, along with about 20 others. Not knowing where to start, I contacted between 10-15 of the referred wedding coordinators on each or their website and “Requested More Information”. From there, only 3 coordinators contacted me back, with Agape Planning being the first. Agape sent a detailed message laying out all of their services, and then I received a follow up phone call shortly after. I was impressed with the fast response time and I could sense the urgency, which I appreciated. My now husband and I decided to hire Agape Planning, before we even met with Ashley for our first consultation. The detail and professionalism Agape provided before we met was impressive.
We purchased the “Day of Service” since we were having a small wedding and this was all that was required of our venue. The Agape team helped me throughout the entire process however. The ladies called me monthly to make sure I was on track and following the planning checklist they provided (which was a great help). They responded to emails and phone calls almost immediately.
The day of our wedding they coordinated with all the other vendors so I didn't have to worry about anything. Agape took all of our decorations and prepared our reception room. They created a photography scheduled and kept everyone on track. My wedding was absolutely flawless and we owe so much of that to Agape Planning. We have already recommended their services to another couple getting married!

I was initially hesitant to hire wedding planning services at the start of my planning process due to budget concerns, but in the end it paid for itself and more in so many ways! Ashley, Laurin and Mackenzie do a great job of keeping communication lines open with a perfect balance; they don't overbear, but they also maintain the forms of communication in an effective and professional manner. Laurin collaborated with me to make our beautiful invitations, seating chart, and wedding program (I am still receiving compliments on how different and beautiful they were). Ashley, it seems, was destined to be a wedding planner. Some of our vendors had worked with Agape Planning and out of those vendors ALL had confirmed my good choice saying that I need not worry about anything on our big day since Ashley is "SO detail-oriented". They were right! What I really appreciated was Ashley's level of professionalism and ability to maintain objectivity throughout the entire planning process. This is a really important trait to have as a business professional in the wedding industry. Brides can become quite obsessive and start focusing on things that may not be of grave importance in the grand scheme of things. On the other hand, brides can also lag a bit and need a little 'push' to get things done (like me!). In either case, I have seen how Ashley maintains a professional demeanor that accommodates the needs and wants of both types. She does a great job at allowing brides to come to their own decisions, but will offer suggestions and guidance at the right moment if the need arises. Thanks to Agape Planning for making our day so seamless, stress-free, and memorable! Highly recommended!

Ashley, Laurin, and Mackenzie are just AMAZING. From the very beginning, we knew we were in good hands because it was easy to tell how passionate and dedicated Ashley and her team are to executing the perfect wedding. Ashley was very good with responding to our emails even when she was so busy and always made sure to keep us in the loop. On the day of, I could not have asked for a more stress-free occasion and hiring Laurin on as my bridal concierge was easily one of the best decisions we made. She made sure I was eating, drinking water, staying on schedule and even helping me go to the bathroom!! These ladies are true professionals and I cannot recommend them enough. Thank you, Agape!!!!!

Ashley and her team at Agape Planning are in one word...AMAZING! I knew about Agape Planning from my now-husband's twin sister and their friends. Prior to my own wedding, I've been to FIVE weddings that Agape Planning has helped to plan/coordinate, so you can kinda say I wasn't new to the quality of the service that was offered. So when it was my turn to walk down that aisle, I knew exactly who I wanted to be there for me. Throughout the entire wedding planning process, Ashley and her lovely team were there for me. They were easy to get a hold of, whether it was by phone or email, and they were super flexible given the fact that my wedding was out-of-town. When it comes to details, Ashley is the queen of details, no matter how minute, and I am very appreciative of that. She's just about the sweetest person in the world and has an amazing personality. Most of her, she goes out of her way to make sure that your day is FLAWLESS. Like any wedding, mine had a few hiccups (crazy bridesmaid, insane parents, you name it). Ashley made sure everyone in the wedding party were supposed to do what they had to do. And for that, I am eternally grateful. I would recommend Agape Planning to any bride out there that wants her big day to be as purely memorable and fun as mine.

Agape Planning was a joy to work with, and did an absolutely wonderful job on my wedding. Ashley and the team there are incredibly organized and helpful, and thought of every last detail - many of which would never have occurred to me on my own! They helped us plan a beautiful ceremony and reception, and I will without question be recommending them to my friends as they get married. Our wedding day went off without any issues, and was actually not at all stressful since everything had been planned out so well in advance. Not to mention, the Agape team is incredibly warm and sweet, and they clearly love what they do. We could not have been happier with how our wedding day turned out, and I highly recommend Agape Planning.

Agape Planning was a recommended coordinator from our wedding venue (the Richard Nixon Library in Yorba Linda). I booked their services on the spot while meeting with Ashley for the first time--her abilities are unparalleled! They took care of my day-of coordination services, which in reality, started about 8 weeks out from the wedding. During our initial meeting we went over all the details that needed to be handled and days later, I had a personalized planner to guide me along with vendor recommendations. Ashley, Laurin, and MacKenzie were always responsive via email and phone whenever I had any questions or concerns.

When the time finally came for them to step in, they had the process nailed down! I'm a huge procrastinator, so they basically saved my life. No detail went unnoticed and they made sure to double check that everything I wanted was accounted for. Ashley helped me tremendously with considering different options for everything. We had a huge wedding (350 guests) and a small budget, but she never once frowned upon this or made me feel like it would be impossible. Agape also has a great inventory of rentals to make things even easier.

The walkthrough, rehearsal, and the day of the wedding were seamless. Ashley kept us right on track, which is hard for me! She has this amazing ability of dealing with all types of people from my fabulous mother to an abrasive Marine and everyone along the spectrum. No task or change was ever an obstacle and she made us feel completely as ease. Even the vendors commented about how great she was. I highly recommend Agape Planning's services to ensure a perfect wedding day!

Myself and my new husband are very meticulous people, so we thought we could generally handle the planning of a wedding and working out details. However, most of my family and closest friends were involved in the wedding itself. Thus, when we booked our venue at the Nixon Library, I knew that despite the fact that we would be able to control most of the planning, we would not be able to execute it on the day of or have all of the time to control events and vendors and our family members since we were the "stars of the show." So we took our recommended vendor page and had our first appointment with Ashley of Agape Planning. Normally we investigate an entire list of references just because we like to "be sure." However, we had not even walked away from the meeting when both us realized Ashley was a great choice for us. Agape offers full and partial planning services, as well as "day of". However, the "day of", which was our choice, really was at least 2 months of engaged planning services with Ashley and Lauren. They worked on executing and suggesting great additions to our design plans, coordinating our vendors, created a timeline (reworked with any changes we desired), and of course got everyone in line at the rehearsal and on the day of. Agape made everything seamless on the actual wedding day. Even guests noticed how everything just sort of "happened". I always felt that they were in complete control of things. Ashley and Lauren also were empathetic and aware of people's moods and could work around anything during a stressful but happy time. You will have absolutely no reservations if you book this vendor, and it was perhaps one of the best things I could have done for myself since I have a professional career and worked up to just days before the big day. Our other vendors also were familiar with working with Agape and felt very secure knowing that the Agape team was around.

Ashley and Laurin of Agape Planning were such a blessing to our wedding planning process and to us. With depth of experience, including extensive familiarity with our venue as a preferred vendor, we knew from Day 1 that we were in seasoned and savvy hands. Moreover, Agape Planning is a pleasure to work with and helped me as "The Bride" get bursts of excitement again for the wedding every time I got mired in my own worries or the details of the wedding. They have all levels of service and really tailor their suggestions and guidance to your needs and wants. If I got to do the day again, they would be right there with me.

Ashley and Laurin from Agape Planning were amazing! From the moment we met them they both were professional, responsive, and just very on top of things. Ashley is the most organized person I have ever met and she makes the time before the wedding less stressful because she has everything put together. Both Ashley and Laurin are always available and respond to emails almost immediately with answers to any of my silly questions! Laurin designed my wedding invitations and they were perfect!

The day of the wedding it was raining and our ceremony was supposed to be outside. I had talked to Ashley on the phone the morning of and told her that unless it's absolutely necessary, I do not want to move the ceremony inside. She made that possible for me and never pressured me to move the ceremony. I highly recommend them for your wedding!

My wife and I met Ashley and Laurin of the Agape Planning in October 2013. Our first impression of Ashley and her team is that they were very approachable and friendly. Even though we only had several months to plan our wedding before our big day, we would not have made it happen without Agape Planning and its professional services. During our meetings, Ashley was always prepared and made very creative yet concrete (in terms of our budget and the given time and space) suggestions for us to think about and play with. Laurin also did a lot by helping us create our beautiful invitation and many little and important details. In addition to all of the things mentioned, Ashley and Laurin served the role as our secretary to keep us on track with our plan, negotiators with our vendors that saved us a lot of time and money, as well as emotional support during moments of great distress. We cannot thank you enough for your dedications to what you do and who you stand for-Team Agape Planning. All in all, the planning process and our wedding day was simply amazing and we would certainly recommend Agape Planning to people who are looking into getting married with a wedding planning service that is personal, professional, and enjoyable!

Agape Planning is the reason my wedding was enjoyable, organized, and memorable! We hired Agape's basic services and we could not have been happier. The wedding planning process is hard but their extensive knowledge of weddings and event planning coupled with their impeccable ability to deal with every type of personality made them the clear choice for our event. We had a large 250 person wedding at a local hotel and Ashley and Laurin were the glue that held our wedding together. I had met with other planners prior to choosing Agape and they honestly just stressed me out. Within 5 minutes of meeting Ashley I could tell she was the perfect fit for the job. She keeps her cool during stressful times and doesn't force any one wedding "style" on you. Her and Laurin provided numerous excel spreadsheets and organizational tools, recommended vendors who were incredible in their own right, and always stayed calm. They kept track of every single contract (and verified every contract the week of the wedding so I didn't have to stress!) and made an extensive 10 page minute by minute schedule for our wedding day that even included the drinks we would be served immediately following our ceremony (which were of course successfully delivered). They are highly attuned to details and it paid off when our wedding day was flawless. We also did a design consultation where Ashley offered numerous ideas that I never would have come up with on my own! They truly have a gift for wedding planning. Every single detail was discussed prior to the wedding so we could enjoy our wedding day. We both have large families and these ladies worked wonderfully with every single person. They worked with ease when bombarded by my father's constant pre wedding phone calls to verify the budget, contracts, vendors, etc. The day of the wedding, they were a subtle yet firm guiding force that helped my wedding run exactly as planned. I cannot emphasize how much I loved these ladies during the wedding process!

My wedding was 10/05/2013 at the Queen Mary. I can't tell you how much I appreciate what Ashley and Laurin did for me. I never planned on having a wedding coordinator. I thought I had it all planned out until my schedule at work changed and I had no more time to plan my wedding. I was recommended to Agape planning by my DJ, Renowned Events. When I first met Ashley, she was very spunky and friendly. She knew exactly what we wanted and even suggested things that I would of never thought of. We asked for her services right there and then. We got the Final Count Down Collection and added the mock-up consultation and the Stationary Design consultation. In the months to come, we communicated through via email and phone calls. We had set up meetings at her studio and at our venue. Laurin created our invitations, and let me tell you, they are the best invitations I ever saw. Our wedding was at the Queen Mary and the invitations matched our venue. Our guests loved them. The day of the wedding, they were on top of everything. They made sure everything was perfect. They were the first ones in the venue and the last ones there. I can’t tell you how much our guests loved the wedding. They made sure as well that my hubby and I ate at our wedding…I loved that. I will always be grateful for their help and for everything they did for us. I WOULD RECOMMEND THEM A MILLION TIMES.(Updated from the Groom Perspective)
For grooms out there still not sure if Agape Planning is the planner for your wedding... well let me tell you they made my wife feel sure about things at all times of the wedding planning. During the wedding the most important thing is the bride they sure made that she was taken care off and had patience with my family which was being a little crazy during the wedding with wanting to take pictures with us when we had a time table. I know that my wife enjoyed her wedding and she tells me that it was even more than she could hope for!! So grooms you bride is in great hands

Once we booked our venue we were told that we had to have a day of coordinator. So I began my search for a planner, Ashley wasn't on my hotel's list but the catering manager personally recommended her to me, and I'm so glad that she did. She ended up being much more than just a day of coordinator, she helped with every single detail of the wedding. I knew I wanted Ashley to be my planner from our very first meeting. She was organized and very detail-oriented, two things that were very important to me. Then things got even better! She mentioned that she had an assistant Laurin who designs invitations. I met Laurin and she was the sweetest! She helped me design the perfect invitations, menus, table numbers etc. Ashley and Laurin helped me think of things for the wedding that I never would've thought of on my own. They are both extremely detail-oriented and quick to respond no matter what the question was. They gave great advice and tips ranging from decorations to vendor selection.

Our guests couldn't stop raving about our beautiful wedding! Thanks again to Ashley and Laurin for being so instrumental in making our special day perfect, and for thinking of all the details that contributed to making our day so magical.

We love Ashley & Laurin!!! When the first time I called Ashley, I can felt this is the "person" who I am looking for, after we set up the time and met her in person with my husband, we total felt "she is the one"!!!

We cannot say enough good things about Ashley & Laurin, they did so much more for me. Any question we had they helped me with and always responded to us right away. They helped keep us on top of my vendors and kept track of everything we needed.

On the day of the wedding they made everything look AMAZING, the entire day went so smoothly in such hot day, they were attentive to us and everything we wanted. Ashley & Laurin are absolutely amazing, very professional, great communication and extremely detail oriented. Too bad, I only have one BIG day in life, otherwise will keep them as my wedding planner every time =P

After meeting Ashley for the first time, we knew she would be best person for the job. Her personality and work ethic made the whole planning experience such a joy and with great ease. Our first meeting with Ashley was to go over Agape’s services – the different packages and options to modify or add on. Ashley was very flexible and explained everything very well. Once we got the services all squared away, we started our hunt for vendors. This process went very smoothly as well since most of our vendors were selected from Agape’s recommended list. It was very important for us to have our vendors work well together, so knowing that Ashley has worked with all of them prior to our wedding, gave us peace of mind.

Ashley is such a wonderful person, and to know that Agape has a second coordinator (Laurin), it was like having two of the best players on the same team! Ashley and Laurin work very well together- they both have great communication skills and are super detail oriented. Most of our communication was done via email and phone- a very effective way for us to get questions answered and share ideas. I remember getting email replies late at night and on weekends. The prompt replies really made it seem like our big day was just as important to them as it was to us. They really know how to make us feel special.

When the big day got closer, Ashley and Laurin made sure we were all prepared by sending us questionnaires and reminders of anything that was outstanding.

After meeting Ashley for the first time, we knew she would be best person for the job. Her personality and work ethic made the whole planning experience such a joy and with great ease. Our first meeting with Ashley was to go over Agape’s services – the different packages and options to modify or add on. Ashley was very flexible and explained everything very well. Once we got the services all squared away, we started our hunt for vendors. This process went very smoothly as well since most of our vendors were selected from Agape’s recommended list. It was very important for us to have our vendors work well together, so knowing that Ashley has worked with all of them prior to our wedding, gave us peace of mind.

Ashley is such a wonderful person, and to know that Agape has a second coordinator (Laurin), it was like having two of the best players on the same team! Ashley and Laurin work very well together- they both have great communication skills and are super detail oriented. Most of our communication was done via email and phone- a very effective way for us to get questions answered and share ideas. I remember getting email replies late at night and on weekends. The prompt replies really made it seem like our big day was just as important to them as it was to us. They really know how to make us feel special.

When the big day got closer, Ashley and Laurin made sure we were all prepared by sending us questionnaires and reminders of anything that was outstanding. They definitely kept us on track and organized without intruding or being annoying. Agape Planning know what they’re doing and they do it WELL. They made our big day happen as planned - they definitely made our dream come true. We can’t thank them enough for all that they’ve done for us. We highly recommend them.

I only have 5 words for Ashley and Laurin of Agape Planning... the best in the industry!

From the beginning, I always wanted Ashley to be my day-of-wedding coordinator. Other then being the most recommended by the Nixon Library, she has over a hundred of perfect reviews on weddingwire. I knew I could not go wrong with her and I will book her whatever it takes. And I'm so glad I did because I had the BEST wedding of my life.

Ashley together with Laurin, her assistant worked so hard to deliver what I envisioned for my wedding. They were both very professional and organized to work with. Somehow, they have lowered my stress level in planning because they were there to remind me of what's to be done and what not. Although I have only hired their day-of-services, they provided more than what I expected from a day-of-coordination. They were always ready and willing to give recommendations/opinions on matters that confused me. And never did they fail to respond quickly to my emails. I couldn't have asked for better wedding coordinators.

Their professionalism and organization skills highly showed during the wedding day. They coordinated from start to finish and did it perfectly. Everything went without a glitch, and if there was, they had already handled it before it got to us. My husband and I did not feel any stress that day, only excitement and happiness. We received lots of compliments from our guests of how magical that day turned out to be. There is just nothing I can complain about except that they were beyond amazing. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you very much Ashley and Laurin for fullfilling our dream wedding and making it our happiest day by far!

I don't want to repeat everything that's already been said about Ashley and Laurin, but they are, hands down, the best money I spent for my wedding. A little about us: I was living on the east coast working 70-80 hours/week, and my fiance was living in New England working about the same or more. We knew we wanted to do our wedding in Southern California because that's where we're from, but I felt totally overwhelmed and knew I needed help before I even started.

We met with Ashley only twice before the wedding - everything else was done via telephone and email. I met Laurin the day of, but already felt comfortable working with her. As everyone has mentioned, Ashley is detail oriented. The wedding day went off without a hitch. They were both incredibly flexible, going with my new suggestions, even as I changed my mind. I knew I could trust them to make the day more beautiful and seamless than I could have imagined. They were incredibly attentive on the day of; I felt totally pampered and taken care of. I wish I could have someone like Ashley and/or Laurin to organize the rest of my life!

A few things that I loved about working with Agape - I didn't have to worry about dealing with the other vendors (even though all my vendors were phenomenal). Vendors (their recommendations) jumped at the chance to work with them again. They helped give us money saving tips. I went over budget, but they tried their best :) Anyway, I could go on and on. Basically, Ashley and Laurin are amazing. I wish I could continue working with them even though the wedding is now over.

Ashley and Laurin were so amazing for my wedding. I did pretty much all the planning (because I'm super controlling)... at least I think I did. Ashley and Laurin helped me out more than I could have ever imagined - they spoke with all the vendors and sent out a super detailed timeline and handled anything that might possibly stress me out.
My mom was completely against a wedding coordinator and thought it was a waste of money and not worth it. She never admits that she's wrong, and she realized their value and apologized for challenging me on it!
The day of the wedding went so smoothly. I didn't have to think about anything or make any decisions. I was relaxed, my family was relaxed. I can honestly say that it was some of the best money we spent for our wedding. Thank you girls so much!

We originally thought we would be able to handle all the planning on our own. We gave ourselves over a year to put everything together and knocked out a lot, but as the big day got closer we realized this was going to be too much to do alone. Luckily a friend referred us to Agape. After meeting with Ashley and going through what was left, it became obvious that our suspicions were right. We needed help. Ashley even pointed out several things we'd forgotten.

After signing with Agape they jumped on everything and started getting things done. By the time we were about a week away, we were feeling great about the big day. With Agape's help, our whole wedding was pretty much stress free! They took care of everything and handled the few issues that popped up. I would definitely recommend Agape Planning to anyone in need of a planner, especially if your wedding is at the Nixon Library in Yorba Linda, CA.

Thanks again Ashley and Laurin!

I cannot say enough good things about Agape Planning. I had only hired them for the day-of option, but they did so much more for me. Any question I had they helped me with and always responded to me within a day or two. They helped keep me on top of my vendors and kept track of everything I needed. On the day of the wedding they made everything look AMAZING, the entire day went so smoothly, they were attentive to us and everything we wanted. I would recommend them to anyone a millions times over, Laurin and Ashley are absolutely amazing, very professional, great communication, and very detail oriented.

Working with Ashley was amazing!! She is a sweetheart and so helpful. I hired her two months before my wedding as a wedding coordinator, and I honestly could not have been able to plan everything in two months without her and her assistant Laurin. Everything turned out absolutely beautiful the day of my wedding and with their help I didn't have to stress about anything I just enjoyed the day and had a great time.

We would recommend Ashley & Laurin in a heartbeat! They were wonderful to work with!

From our first meeting with Ashley, we knew she would take good care of us and our Guests at our wedding.

Before the wedding, Ashley & Laurin were extremely professional to work with. They worked with us and our vendors on all of the details and we knew that they had everything covered.

They were great to brainstorm with. They had plenty of creative and unique ideas. At the same time, they were really interested in doing what we wanted to do and recommending ideas they thought would be a good match.

Ashley & Laurin were always great to follow up with us (even when we had really silly questions that we know that had answered for us before). Going into our wedding day, we felt so confident because of the work Ashley and Laurin had done and we totally trusted they would bring about an amazing day.

The day of the wedding, they handled everything for us and did an amazing job. They were so concerned with making sure everything happened they way we had envisioned. At the same time, they were so caring and kind to us and our Guests!

There is honestly not one thing we would have wanted them to do differently. We feel so blessed we were able to have them work with us on our wedding day. We will never be able to thank them enough for everything they did to make our day the best ever!

I can't say enough good things about Ashley and Laurin, together my wedding was beautiful, affordable. and most of all my family and I were able to enjoy it. They suggested fabulous vendors that made my vision come to life. One story; I was having a problem finding a stage for my band. This first vendor I contacted quoted me what I felt was an outrageous price, I emailed Ashley that morning, by noon she had found me a stage well under my budget. That savings alone for her service! I think hiring a planner is a must! But it has to be the right planner! These women know what they are doing and have the connections. Agape planning will give you your dream wedding!

The best money we have spent. Meeting with Ashley for the first time put us at ease right away. We knew she was the one for us. She was very flexible as our budget was really tight. Our wedding day went without a hiccup. Laurin and Ashley were amazing in getting the DJ, Photographer, Hair/Makeup Team, Florist, Church, Venue, Caterers all on the same page. They are true professionals. We would not have been able to do it without them. Everyone is still talking about our wedding to this day. It was truly a perfect day and a day we will remember forever. We thank them from the bottom of our hearts.

Ashley is an amazing person and really really great at her job! I have gotten married once (and that is forever) but I can say this for sure: my wedding would have been very stressful without her. I had no idea how the flow of things go, how to have people follow timelines. We had guests from all over the states and outside of the US. Ashley patiently explains everything, makes sure bride and groom are doing okay and runs the show in the background so things would go smoothly. Hiring a wedding planner was one of my best decision!! If you want to enjoy your own wedding, like I did, you gotta have Ashley!

I choose Agape Planning as they were recommend by my Venue, the Richard Nixon Library. The moment I met Ashley I knew she was the one. She was vibrant and so sweet and had a lot of great ideas tips to help ensure a smooth wedding day. Ashley and Lauren make a great duo. I was always able to get in touch with one of them, their professionalism was wonderful, and they actually felt more like "friends" rather than Wedding Planners. They genuinely cared about my wedding and went above and beyond to ensure that I didn't have a worry in the world the day of. I would highly recommend Agape Planning.

Ash is straightforward, concise, and reasonably-priced, this I learned after meeting with 2 other coordinators where they had confusing contracts, deals, packages, and high prices.
Ashwas so patient with me with all my off-the-wall questions and concerns. I was emailing her about my wedding timeline a year before the wedding. She must have thought I was nuts!
I work in corporate events and tradeshows, so I thought no one would match my fastidious nature when it came to planning and coordinating my wedding. I have to admit, I thought a day of wedding coordinator would just be there to make sure all things were generally in order, put on boutineers, and that be it. Fun, frilly, day of "party planning" fun. I could not have been more wrong.
I really thought I had to carry everything on my shoulders. I created my own timeline down to the minute, and got started on all other reports and details too. I knew from Ashley's contract that they do take care of this for you, but I misjudged the extent of those offerings. I guess I just assumed their work wouldn't be up to par with mine. I couldn't have been more mistaken.
Ashley was extremely organized, extremely detailed, brought up things pre-wedding I hadn't even thought of, and took care of the scheduling, vendor management, EVERYTHING, and it was amazing. There were things I started doing that I realized later that I didn't have to, Ash had already done it, and did it better.
I quickly in the last few weeks of the wedding realized what an amazing asset this vendor was and quickly started to rely on Ash and Laurin wholly. I would not have gotten through this wedding without her and Laurin, not one bit.Coming from an extremely Type A, organized, bossy, self-reliant person, to realize you needed this help and could not have gotten by without this help, is huge.
On wedding day, Ash and Laurin stayed on schedule, kept me on track, were always calm and supportive, and did everything for me from start to finish.

Ashley was great! My husband and I agreed that we wouldn't know what to do without her! Our wedding was fun, organized, and successful! The wedding planning went great! There was hardly any problems! From the first meeting to the wedding, Ashley was very patient, nice, and enthusiastic. She gave very good advice and even told us how to save money. She kept us on top of everything; we were able to get the vendors we wanted and made sure everything was set and paid for and completed. She called all the vendors and made sure everything was prepared & ready on the day off. I really appreciated the mock up meeting we had where she was there for our food tasting & after that, she prepared a table, chair, linens, and place settings for us so we could see how our tables would look like on the actual day. In fact, she went and picked up all the stuff for us and brought it to our venue. Ashley also helped set up our linens appointment.

Our wedding rehearsal was organized by her & it went well & efficient. Everyone knew what to do & she was there to answer many questions from the bridal party & parents. My bridal party apparently had a surprise for my husband and I on the day of the wedding & they were able to communicate with Ashley and planned the surprise without us having a clue at all.

Ashley is very professional and responsive and that is one of the many great things about her! She responds to emails & returns calls quickly! We never have to worry or wonder if my emails & phone calls were left unanswered!

Overall, my husband and I are so happy & glad we had Ashley!!

Ashley is so kind, caring, dedicated, bubbly, passionate, and most importantly organized. She made me feel so much at ease and I couldn't have planned the wedding without her. It was so great to have Ashley because she made the flow of the wedding perfect. Her attention to detail was remarkable. I was absolutely blown away by her performance. There weren't any road bumps and I owe it all to her. I am so happy that The Nixon Library put her on the recommendation list. I don't know what I would have done without her.

I don’t know what we would have done without Ashley! She gave expert advice throughout the planning process and was always available to answer our questions. She gave us a ton of referrals for vendors which saved us time and stress over picking people at random. On the big day she kept everything running smoothly and me, my husband, and our parents could enjoy the day without worrying about any of the details. I would recommend Ashley to anyone looking for a planner who is on top of things and has a ton of positive energy. I don’t think my wedding would have been as good as it was without her!

We hired Ashley not just because she was one of 2 coordinators recommended by the Nixon Library (our venue), but because from our first phone conversation I felt as though I had made a friend - someone I could trust and depend on.

I live in London, and planning a wedding that took place in a time zone 8 hours away wasn't a small feat. Ashley not only gave us great recommendations of vendors that shared our vision (and fit the budget), but she answered EVERY question my mother, my groom, and I had over the course of the year we planned the wedding.

She went far beyond what was written in the package. Between the checklists she constantly updated, the constant emails, phone calls, and the occasional meeting when we were in town, she and her team made planning our wedding fun. I miss our weekly phone calls we had in the lead up to the wedding!

As I said, Ashley is AMAZING. Not only was she a great listener, list maker, recommender, but she and her assistant designed custom table numbers with Big Ben on them, ensured that everything went smooth the day of (including ensuring that mothers, grandmothers, and other various family members were where they needed to be), and amazingly, at the end of the night my shoes, bouquet, leftovers... AND IN N OUT were waiting for us in our suite for a great after party!

She really thinks of everything, and ensures that your wedding goes off without a hitch. Thank you so much!!!!

My husband and I decided to have our wedding where we are both from in Southern California, but being located in Alabama for the military I was finding it hard to plan from so far away. I got recommended two different planning companies, and I decided to go with Agape. They are so professional and have a variety of services sure to fit any budget. Ashley was amazing the day of! I didn't have to stress about anything. The day of my wedding my MOH stepped through my Cathedral length veil with her heals and put a big hole in it...but Ashley came to the rescue with her bridal kit and all was well! We had such a great team and Ashley recommended some grat vendors as well. When planning a wedding from thousands of miles away it's important to have a team you can trust and you can definitely trust Agape Planning!@

I cannot say enough on how thankful I was to have Ashley and her team for my wedding. I was a nervous wreck the whole week before the big day, worried that "something will go wrong". But everything was smooth, calm, and PERFECT!!! We could not have done it without a calm and supportive Ashley by our side. It was the best money I could have spent for the wedding because my husband and I enjoyed every moment of the day. She was able to see our vision with only one face to face appointment. YOU ROCK ASHLEY!!!

Ashley was a lifesaver. Not that anything bad happened before or during the wedding day. She just helped us so much prior to the wedding, that we didn't have to think or worry about anything. She is so professional and sweet and gets things done with great responsibility and ease. Ashley played the major role in letting us enjoy these wonderful moments, before the wedding and on the big day.

Worth every penny and then some!!!

Ashley and her team were AMAZING!!!! As most of my wedding was planned when I met Ashley, I needed her to help follow-up on items leading up to the wedding and as my day-of coordinator. She followed up with all vendors before the wedding making sure everyone knew what time to arrive and what they needed to do. I was so happy to have her follow up on all of the small details for me!! I never made a single call to confirm any of the wedding vendors. Not to mention the wedding day flowed perfectly!! Not a single thing went wrong and I have Ashley to thank for her incredible attention to detail!!! As someone who is a type-A, I immediately knew after meeting Ashley that she would be perfect for the job! She treats everyone wedding as if it were her own! I was able to count on Ashley for being calm, meticulous, nice, and honest! If I wanted advice, I knew Ashley would give me an honest opinion!

Thanks to Ashley every guest was saying that we were the most calm bride and groom they had ever seen!! I didn’t have one second of worry on my wedding day because I knew she had everything under control!! I can not thank Ashley enough for her wonderful job!! I would recommend her to everyone I know getting married!!!

From Day 1 to the end of the wedding night, Ashley and her team were very helpful, informative, considerate, responsive, and creative. We planned our wedding from out-of-state and having Ashley as our coordinator greatly facilitated the wedding planning process. She helped us realize the vision of our wedding and gave us fantastic suggestions and guidance along the way. All of our vendors had only great things to say about their experience working with Ashley. We were able to enjoy fully the wedding day because Ashley took care of all of the logistics of the day. Our guests loved her, too, and many asked me after the wedding for her contact inforamtion. Ashley handled the last minute changes to the wedding plan without a sweat and took great care on the wedding day to ensure that we enjoyed all aspects of the wedding. It was a real pleasure to work with her and her team, and we highly recommend her wedding coordination services.

She was there to answer any questions I had whenever I needed answers and kept me organized throughout the whole process. She really cared about the wedding going flawless to my and my husbands liking. She even called every once in awhile to check on how i was doing, which made me feel like I was in good hands with Ashley and her assistant. She is simply the best there is.

There are so many details to keep track of when planning a wedding. In fact, I think that most brides would agree that planning a wedding can be a full time job! When we were planning, we went back and forth about whether or not to hire a day-of-coordinator. My fiance didn't think it was worth the expense, and to be honest, neither did I. HOWEVER, after talking with Ashley and looking at the list of the things she would be taking care of, I quickly changed my mind--there was no way we weren't going to hire a day-of-coordinator! Ashley was, in a word, phenomenal. She was on top of every detail from the décor and timeline, to planning for the possibility of rainy weather, to loading our gifts and belongings into our car at the end of the night. With Ashley in control, I knew that I didn't have to worry about anything and because of that, I was able to enjoy a stress-free day with my new husband! My biggest piece of advice for brides is to hire a day-of-coordinator, and make sure that it’s Ashley!

Ashley and her team at Agape Planning are amazing! 5 starts are simply not enough for Ashley. If you have not already contacted her to help you, then please do not hesitate working with her. I promise you that you will not regret it. She was one of the most important vendors that we hired for our big day. She went above and beyond to ensure that our wedding went smoothly and was our dream come true.

I could go on and on about her, but I'll share a few important examples: It rained for several days before our wedding that was scheduled to take place in the garden. I was so bummed by the weather. But thanks to Ashley, she immediately came up with several options for us should the rain continue. She had a great vision, and used her contacts with other vendors to help us select an alternative plan that my husband and I both loved and was within our budget. Fortunately, the rain stopped and our garden ceremony was perfect. Also, a few minutes before my husband and I were to make our grand entrance followed by our First Dance, we realized that my train was too long and was getting caught in my heel when we tried to dance. Ashley to the rescue---- she opened up her bag and found clips to hold my train up so that my husband and I could finish our waltz. Amazing!

I hope that you find this review helpful. And I'll finish with this advice based on my recent experience. Wedding planning is stressful, but if you have Ashley on your team then you will not have to worry at all. She thinks of everything and is always ready for everything. Ashley will ease any concern or stress that you may have during this process and will ensure that your day exceeds your dreams. Congratulations Bides!

Ashley was very tentative and helpful in helping us choose various vendors and making sure we had everything we needed on the day of the wedding. She is extremely organized and from day 1 took over in communicating with our vendors on everything we need including little things like the mic, slide show, candles, etc. She is always responsive (unless she is sleeping) and things 1 step ahead of us working and communicating with us possible options and changes.

Ashley from Agape is very upbeat energetic and is there when you need her! I highly recommend her!

We had our wedding at the Nixon Library and it was amazing. Almost 370 guests attended but it felt very intimate. Ashley Powell was a life saver. She took care of everything and did so in a courteous and professional manner. She really does know how special that day is for the bride and treated us like we were the only wedding of the year (even though we know how busy she is). She was always available to answer any of our questions. We rented several pieces from her at great rates. The wedding rehearsal, ceremony and reception all went according to plan thanks to Ashley's meticulous planning and leadership. She leaves no stone unturned. When our pastor wasn't able to perform the ceremony, she asked her person pastor for us and he stepped in. It really saved the day. This is just one example of how she goes (and went) above and beyond her contracted services. She's a great wedding planner and a great person. We were happy in every way. Thank you Ashley.

She was always available to answer any of our questions. We rented several pieces from her at great rates. The wedding rehearsal, ceremony and reception all went according to plan thanks to Ashley's meticulous planning and leadership. She leaves no stone unturned. When our pastor wasn't able to perform the ceremony, she asked her person pastor for us and he stepped in. It really saved the day. This is just one example of how she goes (and went) above and beyond her contracted services. She's a great wedding planner and a great person. We were happy in every way. Thank you Ashley. Read less

I honestly don't have enough words to say about Agape Planning. They literally saved our wedding. Not only are Ashley and Agape Planning such professional staff, my wife and I have become very close to them and found a really great group of friends. I will definitely be recommending Agape planning to any friends that plan on getting married. This coming form a guy that initially didn't think we needed a wedding planner. Agape stepped up when they were most needed during our wedding (we had a terrible experience with flowers) Agape stepped up found a new vendor in LESS THAN AN HOUR before the wedding. Needless to say the new vendor had AMAZING flowers and great service (what do you expect? It came from Agape's referral) Not only was Agape there in times of stress, but also to make sure things were running smooth, and always making EVERYONE including guest feel comfortable and enjoying our wedding!! To keep a long story short. Agape is the best and without them our wedding wouldn't have been as beautiful as it was. THANK YOU ASHLEY AND TEAM!

I cannot recommend Ashley enough for her services. We were married at the Nixon library and she made sure everything was right on schedule and perfect. The main reason why I was not nervous on my wedding or days before was because I knew Ashley had everything under control. Everyone including myself was shocked by how calm I was. Ashley took care of all the details and I did not have to do anything or worry about anything the day of except enjoy my wedding day. She even made sure all our wedding gifts were loaded and ready to go after the party without anyone knowing!
She is a very sweet lady and very detail orientated. I highly recommend to all you brides!! She will literally be your fairy godmother!

Ashley Powell of Agape Planning is professional, organized, kind and creative.... not to mention that little bit of bossy necessary to keep everyone in line and get the job done! We hired Ashley as our Day of Coordinator and are so thankful we did. Not only did she run us through the rehearsal and make sure everything went perfectly on the big day, she was also accessible throughout the planning process and offered much appreciated insight and advice when needed. I highly recommend Ashley for all of your wedding planning needs.

Let me start with saying that you NEED to hire Ashley. We weren't going to hire a coordinator at all. But my husband (yay!) and I live in New York, and with our wedding on the other side of the country, we decided it would be good to hire someone for the day of the wedding only. Ashley turned out to be much more than a day-of coordinator. Although that is technically what our contract stated, she helped us from day one (12 months away), suggesting venues, vendors, ideas, tips, etc. The thing about Ashley is that working with her is like working with a close friend. In fact, I'm sad the wedding is over because we don't get to be in such good communication. We always felt that she had everything under control. As it got closer to the wedding, Ashley took over, got all our information, filled in the spots we'd missed, and coordinated everything beautifully with all our vendors.

The day of the wedding, everything was absolutely seamless. No one in my family worried about a thing (and for a family of worry warts, that is a huge statement). Ashley took care of EVERYTHING, including things I didn't even ask her to do. Every detail was done before I even got there. Nothing went wrong. NOTHING. Down to the last detail, our entire day was perfect- from the timing to the transitions, to getting guests from one part of the venue to another, to my flip flops that magically showed up under my table at the reception, to our leftovers appearing in our car when we never even specified that we wanted them, nor told her which car was ours. When we greeted each guest and got stuck, she was our "evil eye" that helped us move on... we never would have gotten to talk to everyone without her timely, graceful pushing! And the most amazing thing about it is that no one even noticed she was there unless they needed her. When our photographers took us to an unknown area without telling her where we were going, she was waiting for us right as we got back as if she knew where we were the whole time. Finally, Ashley works so extremely well with the other vendors involved that everyone WANTED to make our wedding the best ever. And it was. Ashley, we couldn't have done it without you. Thank you for your patience with our thousands of emails, and for being so efficient without losing that beautiful smile of yours. XOXO!

I’m a bit of a perfectionist and was initially apprehensive about having a wedding planner handle the details of my wedding day. After my first meeting with Ashley all my apprehension had faded away. Choosing Ashley was one of the best decisions I made when planning our wedding. She is organized, has impeccable taste and pays great attention to the details. The week before my wedding was stress free & my actual wedding day was seamless (170 guests), largely in part to Ashley- even my bridesmaids (2 of which recently got married) commented about how on top of things Ashley & her staff were. Ashley helped make all my dreams & expectations of my wedding day a reality.

Ashley was amazing...and a bargain. Not only would this wedding probably not have happened without her superb organization and timeline, but the day itself went so smoothly. She is incredibly organized, detail-oriented, and cheerful. She thought of everything we could have possibly needed in advanced and kept us on-track and focused throughout the entire process. The wedding and reception went so smoothly because of all of the prep work she put in and all of the behind-the-scenes work she did so that we could just relax (as much as feasibly possible on your wedding day) and have a great time. Ashley ran interference with all of the vendors so we had nothing to do but enjoy the party. We cannot recommend her enough.

First of all, I am truly embarrassed that this review is sooooo longer overdue! Ashley deserves all the praise and compliments that we received for our dream wedding. Our wedding was in May 2011. Ashley was truly a GEM to work with! From our initial meeting, I knew that we were in good hands with Ash. I am a very picky, type a bride. To me it was so important that all of our vendors were 1) easy to work with 2) just as enthusiastic about our wedding, 3) dependable. Ash was all that and beyond. I truly appreciated her patience with my gazilion questions and emails. She always made me feel assured that everything was in place and in order until the very last moment of our wedding day. She was the liason to all of our vendors and coordinated with every single one of them to make sure that our special day would be a success. I thank her for that. Not only did she make sure that all the pre-planning and the actual day was perfect, but she even called me the morning after our wedding to make sure our wedding day was everything we imagined it could be.

If you're looking for a planner who will hold your hand all the way up to that special moment while making sure it will be absolutely PERFECT, Ash is your gal! I want everyone to experience the same pleasure we had working with this talented lady. Her enthusiasm, trust, attention to detail, and her sincerity will blow you away!

Ash - We can't thank you for EVERYTHING you did for us. We will always remember you for being a HUGE part of the most special day of our lives! xoxo

She is honest, very organized, responds fast to emails and phone calls, and has a wealth of knowledge regarding wedding planning. However, what I love most about Ashley is her fun-loving attitude and passion for wedding planning. I am so grateful to have found Ashley and would recommend Agape Planning in a heart beat.

Ashley is worth her weight in platinum, and you don't realize it until your wedding day--when ten million things happen at once and you realize there is no way you could have handled everything and enjoyed your wedding at the same time. I am extremely meticulous, the kind of person who does everything above and beyond and doesn't really trust anyone to do things for me. But in Ashley I had a clone--a person who thought of things even I didn't--and I would not dream of getting married without her. Hire her while she's still affordable. She's one of those people who knows what she's doing and has heart.

Ashley was absolutely AMAZING! I don't know what I would have done without her... she was so organized, on top of everything, and graceful all at the same time. With all the stress that wedding planning brings, it was great to be able to have someone you trust to make sure everything runs as beautifully as you want it to be on your wedding day, and Ashley is exactly that person.

I can’t say enough about how lucky we were to of worked with Ashley in making our special day a reality. She exceeded our expectations in making our wedding day that much more special. It’s so far been the best day of our lives. From the moment we met her we loved her enthusiasm and interest in making our vision for our wedding come to life. She is organized, professional and detail oriented. She kept all our vendors in the loop. Her ability to make you feel relaxed and calm throughout the planning process is priceless. She took complete control of the details and when we walked in the East Room at the Richard Nixon Library our jaws dropped at how beautiful the room looked. Our guests can’t stop complimenting at how stunning the room looked, the attention to detail and how smooth the evening went, there was never a dull moment all thanks to Ashley, we couldn’t have done it without her. Aside from being proactive we both loved all the additional ideas/details she recommended toiletry baskets in the restrooms, greeting line (life saver) and schedule of events. I will definitely be recommending her services to every future bride. What a great day we had to start the rest of our life together. AMAZING!!!!!!

Ashley was the oil that kept our wedding day moving smoothly. She was incredibly organized throughout the planning process and seemed to always be two steps ahead of us. Issues came up as they always do but with Ashley, I would find out about an issue and hear the solution she already had in place in the next sentence. She completely had our back and would check in even during the hectic wedding day to make sure we were happy with everything. We had a Persian wedding where the families are very involved in the process and the guests do not always end up where they need to be, but Ashley had great finesse w. everyone despite any language/culture barriers. Because of her we were able to completely relax and enjoy our day rather than worrying about the execution of different details. She was also great at keeping us on schedule! One telling anecdote: with all the excitement of the day, I was 30 secs away from walking down the aisle without my bouquet! None of us even noticed but Ashley caught me just in time and nearly broke her back running upstairs to my prep room to grab it and got it to me just in time - in perfect condition and without any of the guest noticing. I was truly amazed. Ash - we really cannot thank you enough!

Are you getting married? If so, the best decision you can make is to hire Ashley to help plan your perfect wedding! We got married at the Nixon Library and she knew all the ins and outs of the facility. She had everything in order on the day of the wedding and we had nothing (and I stress nothing) to worry about. She is more than happy to answer any questions you might have about things leading up to your big day and will go out of her way to make sure that everything is taken care of. We can truly say that without Ashley we would have had to worry about things that a bride and groom should not have to worry about on their big day. THANKS AGAIN ASH!!!!!

Ashley and the Agape Planning team are amazing. Hands down the best person I hired for my wedding. I just got married at the Nixon Library and thought I could do it all on my own. And yes, I could have planned the weddding alone, but she made it so much easier. And as the day of coordinator, she is a must! She completely took control of my event, was very professional, and made everything run perfectly. I had no worries the day of my wedding. She was there for my husband and I the entire time. She was telling us how to cut the cake, where to go, made sure we had personal time just for the two of us to take the evening in, and she even sowed buttons on the groomsman's suit! If you're getting married at the Nixon, don't even consider passing Ashley up. She's amazing.

There was no hard sell on her services and we chose a package that made sense for us. We provided her with all the pieces and she made them all fit. My fiance and I came down with the flu the week of our wedding. I couldn't fanthom going through the process if we had to take care of the little details the week and day off. Thanks again for your tremendous effort. We couldn't have been happier with how things turned out. Thanks again Ash! -Will & Anna

Ashley and her team of lovely ladies did a FABULOUS job helping to coordinate our wedding a few weeks ago. She took care of every minute detail and took a huge burden off my shoulders as I worked full time and attended school part time. She has a great eye for putting things together and she also has a keen eye for completing many to do lists. She was wonderful to work with, very professional and a very sweet personality. I couldn't imagine planning and coordinating my wedding without her. Our wedding was absolutely gorgeous and could not have been more perfect--Ashley and her team at Agape Planning made sure of it. I highly recommend her to brides in Southern California!

I cannot say enough about Ashley Powell from Agape Planning. She gets all 5's in all the categories because she really provides exemplary service and expertise.

From the first phone call to the thank you emails she sent to my vendors the day after she was a joy to work with. She really partners with each of her clients to make sure they're getting the dedicated treatment they deserve. I felt our wedding was difficult to plan because everyone involved had a different opinion about everything. It was hard to find something that would work for me, my fiance, and our very different families. Ashley took the time to understand where we're coming from and took scrupulous notes on all the things that would affect the outcome of the day.

Even though I had booked her final countdown package, she was never too busy during the early stages of the wedding planning process to answer questions. As things got closer to the day of she was great at reaching out to make sure my planning was still on track. She is such a great balance of proactively anticipating issues and flexibility around unexpected occurrences. Our families were stressing us out with last minute changes and Ashley took it all in stride and was able to help us make the best decisions.

I appreciated her support and encouragement throughout the 11 months of planning but did not realize what a great resource she was until I walked into the ballroom to preview the reception set up. I was stunned speechless at how AMAZING, GORGEOUS, PERFECT!!! everything was. It was then I realized, she had taken all that she had learned about us as a couple and really put that into EVERY aspect of the reception. Being the control freak that I am, I worried about all the little details for the 11 months and when I walked through the reception hall, I realized I had lost all the sleep for nothing. She had it all covered.

With family pulling us in all directions through the planning process, and even the day of with their own opinions and wishes on how they want things to go, its good to have someone who has your back. Ashley is that person. She handles everything professionally and tactfully and really is there to make the day successful for her clients. My new husband put it best to me during one of our few moments alone together during the wedding day. "Ashley must really love what she does. She does this every weekend, sometimes twice a weekend and she always has a smile and you can really tell she loves doing this." I have to agree. I'm so glad I went with Ashley. She was one of the best decisions we made when it came to the wedding.

My Fiance at the time and I started planning our wedding nearly a year before the wedding. As the months progressed, we realized that there are simply too many activities that need to be aligned a month before the wedding and on the day of.

We made a couple of great decisions while planning, and one was to research and find Ashley at Agape Planning.

She was super organized, flexible, caring, firm, accountable, fun, and very experienced in planning weddings and ensuring everything goes smoothly on the day of.

You have to (HAVE TO) get a wedding planner and you really should consider going with Ashley at Agape Planning for your wedding. On the day of, everything was planned so well. I knew exactly what to do and best of all, did not worry a bit about the vendors showing on time and getting setup....

Ashley managed it all to the second and made sure that the different vendors with their different personalities and demand show up on time, do the best they could and after the wedding cleanup all the mess that's left behind.

My Fiance and I entered the ballroom and left as a King and Queen - enjoyed every second of the wedding, stayed at the moment because we did not worry about things having gone wrong.

Personal note: Thank you Ashley - you made us enjoy our wedding and remember the moments for a lifetime. Thanks for working so hard but with a smile on your face the entire time. Thanks for managing our guests and vendors and making sure at the end tall our stuff were packed and loaded in the cars. Just amazing. Wish you the best in life and in your career.

Ashley was the best! She is truly a wedding planner extraordinaire. Although we only purchased the "day-of" package, she was on top of it from the beginning of wedding planning. She was always ready to jump in, and offer advice and suggestions. She thought of everything that you would possibly think of about or never even thought of when it came to weddings. We had such a wonderful, stress-free wedding day because of her. I got steak sauce on my wedding dress at the beginning of the reception, and she busted with shout wipes right away, and crisis avoided.

I can't say enough good things about Ashley, and she absolutely deserves the Bride's choice award!

Our wedding day was the best day of our entire lives (so far). Everything literally went perfectly and I know that it would not have gone that way without Ashley as our wedding planner. From the moment we met Ashley, she amazed us with her enthusiasm for her job and we instantly knew that her incredible attention to detail would ensure a wonderful wedding. She was always available for advice on every little detail that my mom and I had questions about. Her day of event timeline covered every minute of the day and kept all vendors organized and aware of their part in the day. Ashley played a key role in making sure we were able to get through all of the things we wanted to do during the wedding. It would have been impossible to talk to all 300 of our guests if we had not had Ashley there. I cannot thank her enough for her expertise and know that our wedding day would have not been the same without her. I would recommend her to any bride out there who wants her wedding day to run smoothly, without having to stress about anything during the wedding.

Her day of event timeline covered every minute of the day and kept all vendors organized and aware of their part in the day. Ashley played a key role in making sure we were able to get through all of the things we wanted to do during the wedding. It would have been impossible to talk to all 300 of our guests if we had not had Ashley there. I cannot thank her enough for her expertise and know that our wedding day would have not been the same without her. I would recommend her to any bride out there who wants her wedding day to run smoothly, without having to stress about anything during the wedding. Read less

Ashley was our "Day Of" Coordinator for our wedding. I say "Day Of" because she was not only there for the day of our wedding but she was able to help me with the major communicating and being the liaison for all of my vendors a few months before the wedding. I cannot say enough good things about Ashley and her team. As soon as I booked Ashley she immediately started to work on our wedding. I'm sure she had many other weddings to take care of, but she always made me feel like she was working on mine. She is EXTREMELY organized and responds quickly to all my emails and phone calls. Having a coordinator for your wedding is definitely worth the money, but having Ashley and her team coordinating is INVALUABLE. I highly recommend Agape Planning. It is very apparent that Ashley has been in the industry for a long time and is good at what she does. Thank you Ashley!

Ashley Powell and Agape Planning executed a perfect wedding for my daughter. After meeting Ashley, I knew she would be the perfect person to work with my perfectionist daughter. Diana knew exactly what she wanted, and Ashley took her ideas and created an amazing day. My daughter and I had done most of the ground laying, and once we turned over all our vender lists to Ashley, all worries were gone. We kept in contact through telephone calls and emails, and Ashley covered all the bases. She knew many of the venders, which made things work even more smoothly. Ashley is thorough, smart, fun, one one of the most competent persons I've ever met. Our wedding day was perfect, and I would not have changed a thing. My husband and I got to enjoy the day, without a thought to anything. Ashley was everywhere, and made her job seem effortless, even though she was working like a dog. I am sorry I don't have more daughters, because Ashley makes you want to do it all over again!

She gave us a great list of vendors to check out, all at different price points, and her relationship with the vendors is one of the major reasons our day went off without a hitch! She is extremely organized, and gave us a minute-by-minute timeline of our rehearsal and wedding day. All of the members of our wedding party were impressed with her personality and organization. I have already recommended her to so many friends!

Ashley is the Best of the Best!!! She is the most organized woman I have ever met in my life! She helped us with our timeline, called all our vendors to confirm everything was right and was there for us the whole day of our wedding. We can not say enough wonderful things about her. Deciding to have Ashley apart of our wedding was the best decision we made! She is so nice, caring, respectful, and was there for us through out the whole planning process. Any question i had, i could email her and she would get back to me so fast and with the perfect answer every time! My husband and I had been planning our wedding for about 3 months before we started working with Ashley. We had hit that point in the planning where we had our venue, the date, and our caterer. It was difficult to look at all the remaining stuff we had to do and try to pick which one we were supposed to do first, very overwhelming! That's when Ash came in, she was the biggest breath of fresh air, she was able to bring us both back down to earth and get us relaxed and excited again about our big day! She brought up things that we would have never thought of or known to think of. She has great ideas and is the Best! If any of you Brides are feeling overwhelmed and need a little bit of help, Ash is your gal! She has many package options, from Day of Only to planning the whole wedding. She will be the best decision you both will make out of everything!! What a great feeling on your wedding day to feel so relaxed, she has everything under control and that was the best feeling!

Agape planning provides a great service. Ashley who was our wedding coordinator was amazing. She made everything go smoothly. She was very responsive and always on time and even ahead of schedule. She is very pleasant to work with. My family loved her as she was very attentive to their requests especially on the wedding day. One word to summarize her overall service is that she is very reliable. Overall I would recommend her again and will ask her to coordinate any other big events we may have.

Ashley was amazing. We'd recommend her to anyone. Friendly. Down to earth. Professional. She has her own excellent taste, but also did a great job honoring our own vision of what we wanted in a wedding and then making it come together with quite a bit of much needed polishing that we wouldn't have even known to ask for. She made us all feel at ease. Kept us on task and put together a beautiful event. Thanks!

Ashley was a lifesaver! She expertly dealt with two different mothers (bride's and groom's) and their differing expectations regarding the wedding and at the same time kept me, the bride, happy with the final compromises. She was able to lend all her wonderful fresh ideas when both my fiance and I were drawing blanks. Somehow, she managed to make a crazy hectic day turn into a smooth and beautiful occasion. I was amazed at how Ashley was able to control the massive amount of guests (375+), most of who weren't even English speaking, and keep the program moving along so effortlessly. We were always on schedule and were still able to do everything we wanted. But most importantly, she made us feel like everything was going to be ok. From her morning text of "Good luck and have fun" on the AM of the wedding, to the hugs of congrats at the end of the night, Ashley made sure all the details were perfect without ever making us feel stressed out. She handled both Moms, all vendors, overly eagar guests, ect. and gracefully intercepted any stressful situation that had the potential of heading our way during the day and into the night. Had it not been for Ashley, our wedding day/night would not have been as memorable as it is now for us.

One word synonymous with Ashley Powell is AMAZING.
Quality of Service: Impeccable
Responsiveness: Extreme Sense of Urgency
Professionalism: Utmost Care and Concern for Couples and their families
Value for Cost: Best Investment Made for an Event
Flexibility: Bends Over Backwards for You

Amazing doesn’t quite cut it for Ashley Powell. According to my professor’s form of recognition, she gets the ABCD Award for going Above and Beyond the Call of Duty.
From the moment we met Ashley at the Nixon Bridal event to the moment we exited passed the Presidential seal to start our new life together, Ashley was committed to making our day the best day we could have imagined possible; and so it was.
Her passion for her work is expressed in all her attention to detail and her sense of urgency to fulfill your needs are addressed with care. She has such a professional work ethic and great relationships with vendors that she is such a joy to work with. She’s friendly, honest, optimistic, and has a natural gift to create an atmosphere of endless possibilities. She cares about you, about your family and about everything involved. She’s a blessing to any wedding and a blessing to meet her. She’s incredible. She makes you feel like you’re the only couple she’s taking care of; she makes you feel AMAZING!

My husband and I met Ashley Powell at our friends' wedding just a few months before our own. We were impressed as we saw her arranging the details of their reception at the Nixon Library and hired her just a few weeks later for our backyard wedding. Having most of the details already worked out and arrangements set with the many family and friends that contributed to our day, I was thankful that Ashley would be able to step in to do many of the last minute coordinating and day-of details so we could all enjoy the result of our hard work and planning. Ashley quickly understood my vision for the day and cross-checked with all vendors to ensure everyone was on the same page. She was very organized, and kept things moving along in a timely and efficient manner, which was especially impressive with our large bridal party! We were very pleased with Ashley's work and recommended her to our cousin for their wedding later that same summer. We're now happy to call her a friend and will continue to recommend her services. Happy planning!

Wow. I truly cannot say enough about what Ashley and Agape Planning did for us. Weddings are complicated-- ridiculously complicated-- but Ashley honestly makes it look easy. From our first meeting with her, we knew she was someone really special and we both immediately felt a huge weight lifted from our shoulders as she replaced our chaotic scattered ideas with organized mapped out lists that were ready to be played out as the wedding of our dreams. Ashley's attention to detail and knowledge of the venue and every element of our wedding were so impressive. Even as wedding experts, however, Ashley and her team are anything but perfect-wedding-making-robots; Ashley was so sincere, sensitive, and supportive throughout the whole process that we really knew that we would be well taken care of on our wedding day. Assuming my friends and family aren't reading this, Ashley was my favorite person beside my husband at our wedding! Every time I saw her, I knew everything was going as well as it seemed. One of the best decisions we made about our entire wedding was choosing Ashley at Agape Planning as our wedding planner and day-of-wedding coordinator.

I wish I could give Ashley more than 5 stars! When I began wedding planning, I did not think I would need a wedding coordinator, since I had tons of friends' referrals and lots of time. However, my venue (although gorgeous) was very strict with their rules, and no one I knew had gotten married there (a reason why I chose it). Ashley was their recommended coordinator. I was a little hesitant because she hadn't planned a Pakistani or Muslim wedding before, but she was so eager to learn about the customs and different traditions. She definitely went above and beyond by ordering a south Asian wedding planning book that described our weddings. To top it off, she is such a sweet lady, and since she's a fellow Trojan, she's family. She suggested excellent vendors and ideas for the wedding. She made the day stress free not just for me, but for my parents, which was very important. After the wedding day, she wrote a lovely blog post which made me want to see her again, even though the wedding is over. Thanks so much, Ash!

I cannot gush enough about how great she is. I'm certain she can handle anything thrown at her and would make any wedding amazing! LOVE LOVE LOVE her!

Where do we begin? Erick and I have now been blissfully married for 2 months and just recently had the chance to sit down and enjoy pictures as well as share wonderful memories of that special day that Ashley helped bring to fruition.
When we first started planning our wedding the idea of hiring a wedding planner never crossed our minds. We thought with everyones help we could accomplish the look and feel that we wanted for our day. As the months flew by and as my poor husband continued to be my sole girlfriend but who’s patience began to grow thin he
decided to take matters into his own hands and find help for me. Wedding Wire is an amazing resource and through this website he found Agape Planning. Erick admittedly called a few other planners first but when he spoke to Ashley he immediately felt a connection over the phone. Our meeting was more than we expected! Ashley’s charisma, knowledge and confidence blew us away. Her introduction and explanation of what her services entailed impressed us and it was important for the both of us to work with someone who genuinely cared about our story and how we met. In addition, Ashley’s attention to detail is incredible and her vision matched ours perfectly.
She made sure that we had the exact ambiance we wanted. She conducted herself with poise and confidence and that was key for our crazy wedding party.
Ashley, Erick and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all of your hard work, patience and time that you put into our fantastic affair.
Words alone cannot describe fully what she brought to the table- both as a professional and as a friend. No bride and groom knows what they are getting themselves into when it comes to planning a wedding and with her great guidance and support we were left simply to enjoy the beginning of the rest of our lives thanks to Ashley; and this was priceless.

Ashley was amazing to work with. My husband and I decided to have a "Leap Year" wedding and gave Ashley all of 27 days to plan the entire wedding. She was so organized and thought of everything! She also helped find us a DJ, Photographer, and Florist. She worked diligently with the venue we choose, and was there early on the day of the wedding going over every detail. She made my wedding exactly how I dreamed it would be. I don’t know what I would have done without Ashley!

Ashley of Agape Planning was a total life-saver for me. She kept me organized, sane, and was always there if I had any questions. It was very easy to get along with her, and I trusted her with all the details of my wedding. The week of my wedding was filled with rainstorms and I was very nervous because I was supposed to have an outdoor ceremony. Ashley assured me that everything would turn out beautifully and, even though it rained cats and dogs the day of the wedding, she totally pulled through and made my wedding as perfect as it could be.
For many brides, myself included, planning a wedding can be extremely stressful, but Ashley makes things so much easier. She creates a detailed timeline of the event, and is on top of every detail at all times. Ashley and her team are very professional, experienced, and knowledgeable. I could not have had my "dream" wedding without her help. I would recommend her to anyone!

I have yet to see a groom to actually write a feedback for a wedding planner. I might be the first one. This just goes to show how great Ashley is as a wedding coordinator/planner. If there is probably one thing a soon-to-be married couple should get besides a lavish ceremony and reception place and besides the best decors and flowers, is a GREAT WEDDING PLANNER. The beauty, simplicity and elegance of our wedding happened to rest on the hands of a good coordinator. People cant stop to talk about how the whole day went "smooth", "perfect" and "well-coordinated". In all honesty, I asked Ashley to send me websites where she is affiliated so I can "brag" about her. This is the least we can do to tell the world how important she was to the Biggest day of our lives. Your bestfriend in your wedding is not your bestman nor maid of honor, its you wedding planner. For us, it was Ashley.

Ashley was a pleasure to work with from the beginning. I planned my CA wedding from the east coast and knew I wanted at day-of coordinator to help take the stress off my wedding day. I had to book over the phone and Ashley was the only coordinator I connected with and felt confident about. Although I only booked her day-of services, she went above and beyond. From the first day, she was on top of things. Ashley is organized, caring, personal, professional, and really made me feel like she was there to make my visions come true. I booked 9 months in advance, but she still checked in on me every month. When the final month came, she was one step ahead of me confirming and finalizing all of my vendors for me. Minus the heavy rain and windy gusts on my wedding day, Ashley made sure everything went off smoothly. Even my parents, who didn't know what a wedding coordinator was before my wedding complimented her on being so thorough.

Ashley could not have been more wonderful, our wedding day was more than I could have possibly imagined and I owe a big part in that to Ash! With Ash at my side for the wedding day there was nothing for me to worry about, I was simply left to enjoy the day and I didn't have to think about one detail. After a long year of planning you can imagine how much of a relief this was. Ashley is very detailed oriented, she kept everyone on point and nothing and I mean nothing was out of place. I highly recommend her for anyone looking for the best wedding planner ever!

I used Ashley as my wedding coordinator for my recent wedding at the Nixon Library. I couldn't have asked for a more organized coordinator to assist me make my wedding vision a reality. From helping me with bridal party gift suggestions to vendor follow up she was on point. Organization was one of the most important things I was looking for a coordinator and Ashley has that down from the first time you meet her. You know she really knows what she's doing and loves it. On the day of the wedding, I definitely was guest at my own wedding enjoying it as everyone else, I didn't have to lift a finger. If there were any issues to be solved, I never had to hear of it as the whole day seem to go by very smooth. Ashley is awesome! There is no need look any further as you won't be disappointed with Agape Planning

Ashley Powell with Agape Planning was truly amazing! I know a lot of brides talk about how "great" or "amazing" their wedding planner was, but Ashley was more than just "great" or "amazing" she really was a life saver or should I say, "Wedding Saver!" I was not the typical bride, I was not one of those girls that looks forward to her wedding day all her life and spends most of her childhood dreaming up her dream wedding. For that reason, when I got engaged, I thought that the last thing I need to spend money on was a "wedding planner" I figured "wedding planners/coordinators" were for spoiled brides that had so much money that they didn't know what to do with it. Needless to say, I got a rude awakening when I started planning our wedding! My fiance and I got engaged on Feb. 15, 2009 and at that time we set a wedding date of May 1, 2010...plenty of time to come up with what my idea of a "perfect" wedding would be and of course plan it. Then, in June 2009, my fiance's father fell ill and we needed to move up our wedding (we wanted to get married by the end of 2009). When we decided to move up the wedding in June, I hadn't planned or confirmed anything yet because I thought we had until May 2010. The only thing I had managed to cross off the "Wedding To Do List" was buy my gown :-) Once I realized that I only had 4 1/2 months to plan the perfect wedding, I began to stress out (that's putting it lightly). I was planning a wedding in Southern CA, while living in Northern CA and I was not familiar with venues or vendors in So Cal. I decided to finally give in and set-up some calls with wedding planners. Ashley was the third wedding coordinator that I contacted. Let's just say, the saying, "save the best for last" was so true! Ashley was so sweet, so professional, so sincere, so well-organized, and she really has a great eye for all things wedding! To make things worse, I was planning a wedding in 4 1/2 months and I had a very tight budget and a large wedding guest list (tight budget and big guest list = recipe for disaster BUT NOT IF YOU HAVE ASHLEY!) Investing in Ashley's services, actually ended up saving me money! Her vendor contacts were the best in the industry and she had vendors across the board for all budgets! Plus, she always had little money saving tips that really did work (not those cheesey ones you read in all the Bridal magazines). I had to fight my family and fiance tooth and nail to hire Ashley because everyone told me that I didn't need a coordinator because I had so many people that could help me (aunt, mom, cousins, 6 really eager & helpful bridesmaids ready to do anything) but after my initial conference call with Ashley, I just knew that she was going to help keep me calm and that she was probably my only shot at pulling the wedding off without suffering a nervous breakdown. Thank goodness, I stuck to my gut instinct and decided to hire Ashley!! Thanks to Ashley, I not only pulled off the wedding, but, it seriously was so much nicer than I would have ever imagined!! I can honestly say that I didn't worry about a single thing on my wedding day! Ashley and her assistant were fundamental in executing the perfect wedding! Our wedding was a culturally mixed wedding and I was really worried about the music because my family insisted on a middle eastern band/singer and my fiance and his family only wanted a DJ. Ashley made sure that she came up with a timeline that ensured that both groups would be pleased...and they were :-) Ashley was totally in charge of coordinating everything with the vendors and making sure they were there on time and doing everything that they were suppose to do...and they did...thanks to Ashley! Thanks to Ashley, I really got to enjoy my wedding and I can honestly say that I did not have any "freak out" moments on my wedding day...I can't even think of a single thing that went "wrong" (not to say that it didn't because I'm told that's impossible, but I sure didn't notice and neither did anyone else..I would guess if anything did go wrong then, Ashley was probably the only one that knew). I can go on and on about how wonderful Ashley from Agape Planning was and I would love to say more to anyone that wants to personally contact me. If any Brides are considering Ashley's services and are not absolutely convince, please feel free to contact me at mikelababayan@gmail.com. I will end this review by saying that at the end of it all (literally, at the end of the wedding reception) my family (aunt & cousins that were trying to convince me not to "waste" money on a coordinator) all came up to me and told me that Ashley was the best and that I owed her a great big THANK YOU! My fiance even went so far to say that the money we spent on Ashley was the best money that we spent on the whole wedding!! (Honest truth...I was shocked he went so far, but he did!). My best advice to any Bride is: Don't make the same mistake I made and think that a wedding planner/coordinator is an added perk or luxury item for spoiled brides because it really isn't...I learned that a great coordinator/planner is a necessity and definitely not just an extra perk.

If I could give a higher rating on quality of service for Ashley I would. She was amazing. I wish weddings happened more often in life so I could continue to use her. If I have another big party to plan I would definitely use her.
Ashley is very professional, but really personable. I felt comfortable with her immediately and she had done so many weddings that she had lots of ideas to help me when I was stuck. I was amazed hearing about the different kinds of weddings she did, it felt like we were on the same page yet she was able to plan such different types of weddings. I think she would be a great fit for anyone. If there is a new tradition she had not heard of, she learns about it on her own.
Ashley's pricing is very reasonable. There is so much that she helped us on I really felt like we should have paid more. There were just little things that she would do that were above and beyond what we expected.
Of course it's bound to happen that one changes their mind a few times. Ashley is great about going with the flow and just wanted to help. She was great about asking what I thought and not just charging ahead with her own ideas. She has done so many weddings that she knows what works best. She took my ideas and molded them to what worked best and it was a beautiful end product. I never once felt like she tried to get me to do a different idea than what I desired. There can be a fear of the wedding planner forcing their ideas on you, but that was far from the truth with Ashley. I got to plan my wedding and it was definitely "my" wedding. I enjoyed putting all the personal touches to it.
The day of my wedding went so smoothly I didn't hear of anything bad happening. I got to enjoy the day without any worries.
I highly recommend Ashley. People would ask me if I was stressed before the wedding, but I was able to truthfully say no. The planning of my wedding was enjoyable and I believe it was due to Ashley. I had a decor change a couple weeks before the wedding and she was great about working with me on it and making sure no details were left out. I can't say enough good things about Ashley. Just meet with her and you will see for yourself.

This review is for Day-of / week-of coordination only. I hired Ashley to help primarily with timeline and vendor coordination and didn't have the opportunity to have a full-service planner help with all the details.

I was one of those brides who thought for sure that I could do it all on my own and that I didn't need a wedding coordinator. But after my mom saw countless episodes of "Who's Wedding Is It Anyway" and saw how the planners saved the day time and again, she convinced me to hire at least a day of coordinator.

Fast forward to the week before my wedding - I can't imagine what I would have done without Ashley. She gave me organization and perspective when there just weren't enough hours in the day to get everything done that I needed to do. She handled all the vendor confirmations (and trust me, there are more vendors than one busy bride can keep straight), put together a clear, step-by-step timeline, and my favorite part - she sent an email out about a day or two before the wedding to all my vendors saying that "from this point forward, the bride and groom request that all questions go through Ashley".

On my wedding day, I didn't have sight of a clock at any point in the day. Ashley sweetly but firmly (which is important with a coordinator) kept everything on track, made sure my hubby and I ate (or at least tasted) each course, paid our vendors, and dealt with any problem - if there were any.

I initially thought that day-of coordinators were a luxury or an unnecessary expense but now, after it is all said and done, I can easily say that having Ashley's help and expertise was priceless!

I initially thought that day-of coordinators were a luxury or an unnecessary expense but now, after it is all said and done, I can easily say that having Ashley's help and expertise was priceless! Read less

We hired Ashley to coordinate our wedding at the rehearsal and the day of. Ashley was extremely organized and our wedding would not have been as flawlessly executed without her. From making sure our vendors were set-up on time, to running our entire ceremony to making sure my makeup was touched up throughout the entire evening. I am so grateful for all of her hard work. We could not have done it without her! I have recommended Ashley to all of my friends who are getting married.

I would highly recommend Ashley with Agape Planning. She not only was warm and friendly she was professional and extremely organized. This is one area I would never leave out of the whole wedding process. Ashley provided a service that goes above and beyond planning and organization...she provided "Peace of Mind". Her professionalism came with warmth and kindness. Ashley seemed to be 10 steps ahead of me, and it was such a great relief when the wedding day arrived and I could just sit back, relax and enjoy my day. Not only did everything come together with style and elegance, she was a pleasure to work with, very easy and gentle in her reminders. She also worked well with the other vendors, my mom adores her, and I made a new friend!

Ashley, what can I say,... If only I had called you sooner, right? After planning my own wedding, I had no way of making sure all of the beautiful things I had planned would ever be realized. I had no day of coordinator. I had no one to take care of all the seemingly insignificant things that i didn't even know existed. I knew 3 weeks before the wedding, I needed help! And then we called Ashley. It was a breath of fresh air. i had forgotten what relaxed felt like! She took care of EVERYTHING for me so I could enjoy being the bride, and anticipating the big day! Ashley was not only a wedding planner, day of coordinator, instructor, manager, administrator, crisis negotiator(just kidding), she was my right hand gal. I know my beautiful vintage black tie wedding would've been a big black mess without you!! Thank you ever so much for making our one and only wedding day flawless!

Ashley,

Working with you was truly a pleasure. Trent and myself could not have asked for a better wedding coordinator. Not only did I recognize how wonderful you are but many others said how smooth the day went and made comments about how efficient you were. Our day was truly perfect. Looking back there is nothing that could have went better. They always says at least one thing will go wrong at your wedding but looking back there was nothing I would change. It was a blessing from God to have you there on our special day and you are such a wonderful person and truly care about your clients so much. I don't think my Mom would have felt at ease if anyone else would have been our coordinator. Thanks again for all your hard work, and all the things you did the day of the wedding. The candy station looked amazing! I was just thrilled with everything! Ashley you are an awesome wedding coordinator! I don't see how anyone could keep up with you! Your work ethic is incredible! Thanks again and God Bless you and your family, you will never truly know how much everything you did meant to me.

Love,

Heather

After attending a friend's wedding and seeing the work Ashley did, I knew right away that I had to have her do my wedding! She was the first vendor I booked and the one I was most happy with. She created a timeline for the day of my wedding that slotted in every second from the rehearsal dinner to cleanup. It was wonderful knowing all my vendors would be contacted and they would show up the day of my wedding due to Ashley's confirmations. Ashley is easy to work with and wonderful to talk to. She checked in on me regularly to make sure the planning was going smoothly, and always had wonderful advice to share with me. She always responded quickly to phone calls and emails and had a very positive attitude every time we spoke. I recommend her to all my friends because I know what a wonderful job she will do on their wedding!

It is a shame there is no option for 6 stars. Our wedding was on Memorial Day weekend in the Los Angeles area- but we live in Chicago! Planning a wedding from long distance was a big task, but thankfully our wedding coordinator, Ashley Powell, was a lifesaver. From day one she went well above and beyond expectations. We had a traditional Indian wedding ceremony and despite this being her first Indian wedding, she took initiative to learn about the ceremony, talk to the officiant and familiarize herself with all our customs. She always remained respectful of our cultural traditions and our demanding work schedules. The guest list was large and she was so incredibly organized that the event went amazingly well, without a hitch. Countless guests commented on how well organized the event was especially considering that most Indian weddings run hours late. This was truly the best day of our lives and we were able to enjoy it without any stress about details or the timeline, thanks to Ashley. We recommend her with highest regard to anyone planning their big day!

I wasn't even thinking about hiring a wedding planner in the first place because I've been told it is a waste of money. THAT IS SO WRONG!!! Now, I cannot even imagin how can anyone going thru a wedding without a wedding planner. If you don't agree with me that is because you didn't have Ashley! If you do agree with me, you HAVE to HAVE Ashley planning your wedding. She is very organized and professional. She guided me every step of the way. She helped me review and evaluate quality vendors. She even helped me set up appointments with them and communicate with them when I was busy. She made planning a wedding so easy. I could manage to planning the whole thing pretty much by myself with Ashley's help. My hubby just had to be there. And She made everything happened the way I wanted on my big day. Everything is so great, I feel like words cannot describe. You have to experience it. I even got many compliments from my guests about her. Comparing the quality of her service to the cost, every penny is worthwhile.

Ashley saved our wedding, there is no other way to put it. We had hired some other planners and after months, nothing had been done. We got the run around and a consistent routine of one planner blaming the other partner. We were out of town and needed permits for a beach wedding, as well as every other piece to be put together. We found Ashley with only a month to go and she basically had to start from scratch. She did a fantastic job. She got us organized, found what we needed and got the permits straightened out. She helped us so much that we cannot thank her enough. The wedding came off beautifully, mainly due to Ashley. She communicated with us all the way to the day of the wedding, met us and gave us a great run down. She was friendly, creative, flexible, yet extremely on the ball and organized. The wedding day itself had her making sure to keep all of the stress off of us and she handled many issues without us ever knowing. She was quick on her feet and incredible. I owe her a lot for all of the work she did. She truly felt sorry for us for the experience we had with the past planners. She gave 120% of herself to pull this wedding off and her rate was EXTREMELY low for what she did. She was the best I have ever heard of.

Both sides of the family were really impressed with how professional, sweet, and genuine Ashley was! I hired her as a "day of" coordinator, but I didn't have to fuss over anything for about a month before the wedding because Ashley took care of it all! Although my wedding day flew by, I was surprisingly relaxed and had tons of fun - and I know it was because of Ashley! She also handled the "energetic" groomsmen (and groom) beautifully.

She made my wedding exactly how I dreamed it would be. I don’t know what I would have done without Ashley!

One of the best decisions I made during the wedding planning process was to hire Ashley!

I knew how important a day-of coordinator was and in my selection process I searched for someone who was: 1.) experienced, 2.) organized, 3.) motivated, 4.) a great communicator, 5.) calm under pressure.

During our initial meeting and every meeting that followed, Ashley blew me away with her incredible ability to help us organize, prioritize and process all the tasks we needed to accomplish for the wedding. She created extremely helpful tools to help us stay on track and informed such as a vendor contact list, schedule of events highlighting to-dos, bride and groom to-do list, etc. (Although you can download lots of tools online, it makes a big difference to have a professional create a schedule for you and know realistically whether the timing will work!)

She was also able to draw on her experience planning so many past weddings to give us suggestions on how to think through logistics and take traditional etiquette into account. Her attitude was always upbeat and positive, and I can't tell you how priceless this was during those times I felt overwhelmed with the wedding planning process.

The day of the wedding, there were the small "surprises" that happen at every wedding, but I can honestly say that Ashley handled everything to perfection and my husband and I were able to enjoy every minute of our wedding knowing that Ashley was taking care of things behind the scenes. She shielded us from the small things and let us know when something important happened (e.g., we weren't able to use the sparklers we had bought for the farewell exit). She partnered so well with the vendors and treated all of our bridal party and guests with respect. We received so many compliments about her professionalism and leadership under pressure. I was so blessed to have Ashley as part of our special day, and would recommend her 100% to any bride.

(FIVE STARS) The experience with Ashley was amazing. She is type A to the max...she is thoughtful, efficient, always on time, a pleasure to work with, and has every detail organized down to a T. Having all of her help was beyond wonderful. I truly felt at ease the day of knowing that she knew the vision and all my little details and executed them so seamlessly. It was truly a joy to work with her from start to finish and all the guest commented on how smoothly everything ran. There were so many details that I heard of after the fact that she fixed without me evening knowing about them…a sign of the perfect coordinator. If you are contemplating hiring a coordinator...DO IT...you will NOT regret it...I promise. Don’t spend all the time and stress planning your wedding and have the day of just as stressful, when you can spend the extra money and have peace of mind and a WONDERFULLY executed event....it is WELL worth it!!!

Ashley of Agape Planning was absolutely wonderful! She was our wedding coordinator for our ceremony. I had already booked a location for our reception venue, otherwise I would've contacted her about the reception. Everything that I imagined the ceremony to be, was 100% more than what I thought. She went above and beyond our expectations and was friendly throughout. She is absolutely amazing and I will miss that I wont be able to ask her questions anymore, as we're married now! I will recommend her to any of my friends, co-workers, neighbors to may be getting married in our area.

I worked with Ashley at Agape Planning. All our friends and families noticed how smooth everything went at the wedding (even my husband's friends noticed…now that is good!). She is so sweet and caring, but she knows how to bring the event together. She showed genuine interest in us…not just the wedding, and was very kind to everyone. She was great because she had insight that we could have never thought of, but she was also open to our ideas as well. I would not recommend anyone else; she was perfect!

Ashley is a first-class amazing wedding planner. She helped us with a dual faith, 350 guest wedding that was all we could have ever imagined.

Where do I even start...Agape Planning is the BEST! From the day I met Ashley I knew I had to have her and her team help me coordinate my big fat Indian wedding! They have a lot of experience with all different cultures and wedding ceremonies. There was not a single thing I was worried about on my big day because I had built this trust with Ashley and the team; I knew everything would just go as planned. When a bride starts planning there is a lot to remember, but with the help of Agape they cover every little detail, A to Z. I would definitely recommend them to every bride out there. And even more amazing about them is that they're very budget-friendly! Can't say it enough how amazing they are all around!

Ashley was referred to me by a friend who had a lovely wedding herself. We liked that she had experience with Persian weddings because we were having a Persian/American wedding which can be very unique and a handful! We were very pleased! We really owe at least part of the success of our wedding to Ashley. We got the 3 months out package so we were still pretty hands on throughout, but Ashley was a great resource and answered all of our questions and gave great advice. I didn't use many of her vendors but she made sure the ones I did hire were in line. She is really kind but firm in just the way needed to make sure everything went smoothly. As an event planner myself, this is really important. She made me feel confident everything would go well and I was able to relax and enjoy my day knowing she was handling everything. Her to-do lists and timelines were meticulous and really helpful... and she was flexible and calm with our sometimes demanding families and last minute changes. Best money I spent on the whole wedding! Her assistant Laurin was really attentive as well. I hope to stay in touch with these wonderful ladies!

I would recommend Ashley at Agape Planning to any future bride. She is absolutely amazing and my wedding day went extremely smooth because of her involvement. She was very responsive to my emails or phone calls, had great vendor recommendations, was instrumental in organizing the layout of our wedding, and kept me organized throughout the entire process. I cannot say enough great things about Ashley! She made my day truly perfect and was an amazing wedding planner.

Ashley from Agape Planning was one of our first and favorite vendors. We knew the moment we met her that she was the best planner for us. Her day of planning package started long before the day of...and our wedding day was perfect without a single problem and our guests are still amazed at how smoothly everything ran.

Ashley and her team were great to work with! My husband and I had a destination wedding, so the only issue I found was trying to sync up all of our schedules to talk or meet, as we were in LA for only a small amount of time before the wedding and our home time zone is a couple hours ahead of LA. That being said, I can't think of a single other critique for Agape. Ashley and Mackenzie were present on our wedding day and kept everything moving perfectly. They both were unbelievably sweet and my guests loved them, as well. I can't imagine our day without Ashley and the services Agape provided to us!

My husband and I simply can't imagine our wedding at the Richard Nixon Library without Agape Planning. Ashley was our primary coordinator, and I truly feel like she became a part of our family throughout the wedding planning process! We booked Agape Planning for Appointment Scheduling and Contract Negotiation Services as well as Day-Of Coordination. We feel that what Ashley provided for us went well beyond the scope of the literal terms we had booked her for! She was available to answer any and all questions we sent her in a timely and informative manner, and handled all communication with noteworthy professionalism and friendliness. She made booking all of our vendors a much less intimidating process and was able to recommend vendors in areas we were less familiar with and was completely open to working with vendors that were new to her that we came in knowing.

The day of our wedding, Ashley's demeanor was precisely what we needed. She was calm, positive, energetic, and assertive in all of the right ways. My husband and I have both remarked on how composed she remained throughout the entire day, which is just what a bride needs during an overwhelming day! We completely trusted that our wedding was in the best hands and we never worried or stressed on our special day.

We did have some slight hiccups with regard to communication with the various members of Agape Planning's staff. Throughout the planning process, I was in simultaneous communication with Ashley as well as her two associates, and on a small number of occasions, there seemed to be some missed communication, which would require some extra effort on my part for clarification on some details. However, none of this impacted the flow of our wedding day and did not affect our love of Agape Planning.

We cannot thank Ashley enough for bringing the wedding of our dreams to life and would highly recommend Agape Planning to any newly engaged couple!

Ashley was referred to us as the preferred coordinator for the Nixon Library. We chose her to be our "Day of" coordinator. (Since our ceremony was at an off site church, she provided services at the reception site only.) She is clearly passionate about her work, with an intense focus and drive to provide the best service for her clients, in a friendly yet professional manner. She gave us a timeline to follow with specific tasks and deadlines to follow over the course of our planning year. A provided list of preferred vendors made our planning process much easier. She was readily available by email or phone call to answer our questions. Of course, on the day of, we had no worries about our reception as we knew that Ashley had everything covered, allowing us to sit back and enjoy our special day. Ashley and her team set up everything we needed (guest book/pens, place cards, table numbers, candles, band, photo booth, cupcakes/cake, gift table, welcome table with snacks and drinks). We highly recommend her services without reservation.

I really appreciated the Agape wedding coordinating team. They were punctual to all of our meetings, rehearsal & wedding day. I also appreciated the way they pursued me via e-mail when they needed info. I was so busy working full time, moving, planning a wedding and blending a new family together. I appreciated their patience and consistency. My wedding day was such a wonderful day. Everything went perfect without a flaw. I know that was because of their hard work & planning. A great big thank you to Ashley & Laurin for their help.
