Welcome to my page! I am so glad you have taken the time to read more!
I am Ashleigh Sutherland, owner of Weddings by Ashland and lead planner. I have been professionally working weddings and events since 2010 and I love every minute of it!
A lot of people get overwhelmed or anxious when thinking about all that goes into planning a wedding or event. For me, it feels more like falling in love! With each new event I am involved with, I get butterflies in my tummy, just as I did when I fell in love with my husband! Butterflies aren't a bad thing. They are a sign of excitement: anticipation of a job well done and a happy couple enjoying a picture perfect wedding!
I am passionate about my career and passionate about your wedding!
Speaking of butterflies in the tummy ...
Allow me to introduce you to my main squeeze, the love of my life, my soul mate and my very own handsome husband, Jared.
I may sound like a broken record with that introduction but, honestly, no matter how many years Jared and I are together, I am just as happy to be his wife today as I was on our wedding day!
I can only hope that each of my clients get the chance to experience a love like this! I wish you all, the very best of luck!
Travel back in time with me, if you will, to the year 2004. I was a junior in high school and I was dating this very sweet senior boy! It was practically love at first sight!
After our first date, on a Saturday evening, at a local roller skating rink, I walked home, giddy and in love! When I came through the front door, my momma asked how my date went. I stood there, grinning from ear to ear, and replied, "I'm going to marry that boy someday!" And then, I did!
I married the boy of my dreams on July 4th 2005!
The day I married Jared was the happiest day of my life!
At least it was, until our oldest son was born!
The one thing I always knew for certain, was that when I grew up, I wanted to be a mommy!
For me, having kids was like eating Pringles. "Once you pop, you just can't stop". LOL.
I loved being pregnant! More than anything else in the world,
I loved this little life my husband and I created!
Our first son, Wyatt, was born in December 2006.
One year and 3 days later, we welcomed our second son, Owen, into the world.
And, a year after that, we celebrated the birth of our daughter, Jeweleanna.
