Our mission is to guide you in your heartfelt plans to ensure a heart-filled wedding!

Hey y’all!  Welcome to Magnolia Vine Events. We are so thrilled you stopped by to say hello. We know you are very busy and your time is valuable. We are here to assist you in planning your big day. We will be your organized, go-getter attitude, “can’t wait to design and pull your wedding details together” planner. A well run wedding day is the completion to all of our work together throughout your planning process.

Magnolia Vine comes from a special place of heart & love. Magnolias are one of my favorite flowers. Nothing says southern to me like a beautiful magnolia! Vine–vine is really about many things. Vines grow, and continue through almost anything. But deeper,John 15:5 says, “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.”

While I know that is regarding our relationship with God, I totally believe this is an analogy for marriage. Without one, the other is not able to flourish.Together life bears much fruit when you are in life with a true partner. Marriage is about two becoming one and I just believe this verse is so much about what marriage truly is. You can read more about our name and brand here. At our center, while we want a beautiful wedding day, we believe wedding planning is marriage planning & keeping that your center focus will lead to a successful engagement season. We hope you will enjoy clicking around, reading about our services, and join the planning library!

Ashley Stork
Owner
Hi, I am Ashley Stork, the owner & executive event planner for Magnolia Vine Events. I have always loved a wonderful executed party complete with all the perfect details that make it memorable. As I got older, I started to fall in love with weddings. I love every flower, every cake, every dress, each love story, & by far the way a groom looks at his bride as she walks down the aisle (I cry every time!). I am currently having a love affair with my Apple Watch, barre class, and if I not working I am probably curled up on the couch Netflixing.  I am a girl who loves a party, fashion, anything sparkly, fab food, my hubby and our 2 rescue pups.

A few of my favorite things:

Kendal Perry

Associate Planner

Originally from Birmingham, Kendal received her degree in Communications from the University of Montevallo. Following her internship with Magnolia Vine Events, Kendal became our associate wedding planner. Kendal’s creative and organizational skills make her a key component to our team and Ashley’s right hand lady. Her bubbly & fun personality our brides love and also means lots of laughing! A newlywed herself, Kendal brings a true understanding of where our clients are in their planning journey. Kendal is a recovering pageant queen, lake lover, wife, sister and is totally obsessed with her niece Madilyn.

A few of my favorite things:

Ashlea Yale
Production Manager
Ashlea wears many hats for our team. She works in her dream role at Magnolia Vine Events as a production manager, and as we say regularly just her being a blessing to us all, but also as our studio manager at Create, and a registered nurse on the transplant surgical team at UAB hospital. Each position allows her to pursue different dreams creatively, and professionally all while using the skills & characteristics that are important to her: kindness, compassion, positive & hard working. Her favorite things include Murphy, her golden retriever, glass bottle cokes, traveling & seeing the world, gifts, and dry shampoo.
