Founder: Lead Planner + Designer
I'm Ashley aka "ACE" a nickname I picked up during my time spent with the New York Mets. It kind of stuck and it's the inspiration behind the name!
I have an extensive events background that's led me to you! A philosophy I live by is that if you're kind and you work hard, good things will happen. That mantra has taken me far and I have been fortunate to have some incredible experiences.
I spent my early event years on Wall Street planning corporate events and planned social events at Jackie Kennedy’s former parish ballroom in The Historic Upper East Side Church of Saint Ignatius Loyola. (Jackie O is one of my biggest ideals so that was a dream!) My biggest adventure was my position with Metropolitan Hospitality at Citi Field, home to The New York Mets. #LGM!
I had the amazing opportunity at Citi Field to work with an incredible team of brilliant people and plan every event imaginable. I planned trade shows, LOTS of bar mitzvahs, concerts, anniversary parties, weddings, non-profit galas, corporate holiday parties, you name it—I’ve done it. I worked with sponsors such as Pepsi, Delta, Wise, Verizon, and many more.
Shortly after my daughter Charlotte was born, Aced Events came to life. A few years later my husband and I welcomed our son Camden and our world became even brighter.
My most recent accomplishment was being approached by The Knot to plan their Fall 2018 Knot Pro Connecticut Mixer. That was such a huge honor and a lot of fun!
When you can't find me deep into the world of weddings, I'm spending time with my husband and our two cuties! Now that you've learned about me, drop me a note so I can learn ALL about your special day!
I would be thrilled to help you with your wedding journey! I'm such a hopeless romantic that when you pair it with my super ninja planning skills and personable style it's a magical combination. Your wedding becomes my baby and I love spending time learning about your love, wedding vision, and special day. You can rest easy and be confident that your wedding will be in my very capable hands.
Execution + Design Coordinator
Hi! I’m Christina, the Execution & Design Coordinator for Aced Events by day and a part time Bridal Stylist at BHLDN in Westport, CT by night.
I graduated from Johnson & Wales University with a Business degree in Fashion Merchandising and Retail Marketing. Along with studying Event Planning overseas in Florence, Italy.
You know the saying “ If you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life”? Well that’s exactly why I decided to work in the wedding industry! Do what you love and love what you do; I absolutely love what I do as both a Design Coordinator and a Bridal Stylist! I take the smallest moments to create long lasting memories.
The feeling I get seeing my brides face light up as I put them in their dream dress is priceless, but witnessing my brides walk down the aisle is absolutely timeless! I am obsessed with the complete wedding process, start to finish. I’ve dreamed about working in the wedding industry ever since I was five years old and that dream has become a reality. I’d like to think this profession chose me.
Fun fact: When I’m not Coordinating your wedding day, you’ll catch me at home binge watching Disney movies while also pinning inspo pictures on Pinterest. I guess you can say I enjoy the simple pleasures of life :)
You can spot me out at different restaurants trying all of the latest dishes on the menu because I love experiencing various foods; I’m a foodie! l also have a strong desire to travel so I’m currently checking off places on the map. I’ve been to Italy, Paris, St. Croix and I cannot wait to see the rest of the world! Next stop Greece!
