Southern Hospitality Weddings & Events

Southern Hospitality Weddings & Events



Hi, I'm Ashley! Thank you so much for your interest in Southern Hospitality Weddings & Events. We are a full-service event coordination company based on the beaches of the Outer Banks in North Carolina but travel worldwide to plan events!

I am a James Madison University graduate (Go Dukes!) with a degree in Hospitality & Tourism Management. I started my career in Hotels, moved to Food & Beverage and then ended up in Catering Sales & Event Coordination. To date, I have coordinated over 200 weddings in 5+ years! After a few years as a venue coordinator for multiple properties, it became harder and harder to connect with my brides and that's something I truly missed! Because of that, Southern Hospitality Weddings & Events was born!

My goal is to build relationships with my clients and use my coordination experience & organizational skills to help make the planning process easy from start to finish. That means grabbing coffee while having a brainstorming session, getting the "I found the dress!" text and gushing over the details, hugging after the I Do's and reconnecting even after the event is over. I'm happy to be your planner & coordinator while delivering your event in true Southern style - treating you and your guests like family! Most importantly I want to take the stress away so that you can spend time with your loved ones & enjoy every minute of your celebration!

Outside of being a compulsive planner and list-maker, I love my Goldendoodle Bodie, all things gold, pineapple everything, traveling & spending as much time as possible on the beach!

I look forward to connecting and helping to bring your visions to life!

Ashley Earnhardt
