Just The Beginning...

On November 12, 2017, I started the journey of planning my own wedding. Was I one of those girls that had dreamed of her wedding for as long as she could remember? Absolutely. Was I beyond excited to marry my best friend and forever love? Once again, absolutely. Was I aware of how expensive a wedding can be or how many details go into planning a wedding? Not in the least bit.

Proposal in Opelika, AL includes hidden photographer and book written about the couples story of how they met all the way up until this proposal. Very candid moment.

In that season of my life, I learned what to do and what not do. May 12, 2018 ended my season as a fiancé and began my season as a wife. But the love of all things weddings and marriage never faded. I began interning with an amazing wedding planner out of Fairhope and learned much more than I could have imagined. I planned my first wedding in Fairhope in December of 2018 and knew that this passion was not going away. I began reading and researching everything wedding related, from Emily Post to modern etiquette books to wedding planner podcasts.

With the support and encouragement of my amazing husband and friends and after much prayer, Ashli Payge Planning & Coordinating LLC was born. We launched on November 12, 2020. On that day three years prior, I began the exciting and sometimes overwhelming journey of planning my wedding. Now I get to assist those who are in that season!
