Love Notes

We really love our brides and they love us back! Here are a few short notes we wanted to share with you.

 

“Ashley and her team did an amazing job from start to finish when planning my wedding! She made the process so much easier and better for me, especially the week/weekend of the wedding. She always listened to what I wanted and tried to make my vision a reality, or help me figure out what my vision was! She was always quick to respond to anything I needed and it was always a pleasure when we had to meet together or meet with vendors. She was very knowledgeable of the vendors in the area, always had plenty of recommendations, and has built relationships with many of them. It was also nice having her office in the same building as some of the vendors we used! She was very professional the weekend of the wedding and I can’t brag enough on how well of a job her team did. She made sure I had everything in line and if I had forgotten anything, she took care of it no problem! She made my weekend stress-free and I felt at ease knowing she was in charge and had everything under control. Ashley and her team made sure I always had what I needed, whether it was a drink in my hand or a fresh coat of my lipstick on my lips. The weekend went off without a hitch and I can give much thanks to her for that. They took great care of everything post-reception and made sure everything got where it needed to go. I was beyond pleased with my choice for a wedding planner and I highly recommend getting one!!”

“Ashley and her team did a great job helping us plan, coordinate, and execute our wedding. Ashley was open to vendors from my hometown while she also made suggestions within the Birmingham area that did a great job. She asks questions regarding the details that you forgot and/or didn’t want to think about well of advance of the wedding so that everything goes smoothly on the wedding day. Hiring Ashley will ensure that you can actually enjoy your wedding day instead of worrying over every detail or forcing your mother to execute the Pinterest wedding of your dreams. She won’t micromanage you or your vendors but will instead lead and guide you through the process while offering as much help as you need/want. If you are worried about cost, consider the value of your own peace of mind on your wedding day. It’s well worth it.”

“Ashley, I cannot thank you enough for all that you did to make Laura’s wedding a beautiful dream come true!  Everything was fabulous, calm, and no detail missed!”

Denise (Birmingham, Alabama)

“I couldn’t have done any of this without Ashley! She was so helpful, and kept everyone in order. The wedding went off without a hitch. Even my mother was able to relax!”

Claire (Homewood, Alabama)

“Ashley is amazing. She is friendly, helpful, responsive, kind, patient, creative, and all around wonderful. If you want someone who will help you organize your thoughts, your ideas, and your to-dos while keeping your individuality in mind, you should hire Ashley! I cannot say enough good things about her.”

Bride (Birmingham, Alabama)

“Ashley helped keep our wedding day flowing smoothly! Even with my Type A personality I was able to relax and enjoy our day, because I knew that Ashley had it under control. Thank you again!”

Ashlyn (Huntsville, Alabama)

“Ashley is seriously AMAZING!!! If you are planning a wedding you need to go hire Magnolia Vine Events right now! I really don’t know what kind of craziness my wedding would’ve been if it hadn’t been for Ashley. In our first meeting she totally got me and somehow interpreted what I really wanted from my literally thousands of Pinterest wedding pins. Not only is she a fun, awesome, fabulous person to be around, she is also on it! She walked me through the entire process, helped me assemble the most amazing vendor team, and basically made my entire wedding just out of this world awesome. She was so organized and made sure every tiny detail was taken care of so that on my wedding day I had absolutely no worries or issues to deal with at all! She is pretty much Superwoman and runs the whole show and handles everything from vendor coordination, to set-up and making sure everything looks perfect, to family and wedding party issues. Everything was scheduled so well that I could just have fun and enjoy being a bride. My family has raved about how impressed they were with her and my husband was even bragging about her to other couples we met on our honeymoon! I have received so many compliments from guests about how beautiful all the décor was and how much fun they had at my wedding.  I’ve already recommended Ashley to a friend I will continue to recommend her to anyone I know who is getting married. Seriously Ashley and her team are just flat out wedding miracle workers and you would be crazy not to hire them.”

Haley (Birmingham, Alabama)

“Ashley is truly wonderful, she has great advice, provides great vendors, is super attentive to all your needs, she’s patient, she’s fun to work with, and she’s a professional! Ashley will make sure your event is flawless and not stressful. She helped me so much and I felt that she truly cared about her client. At the end of your event you gain a friend! I’m so grateful to have had her help me and my family! Thank you Ashley!”

Taylor (Birmingham, Alabama)

“Ashley and the staff with Magnolia Vine Events were an absolute joy to work with. Ashley understood my fiancee and I from the very beginning and worked to make our vision a reality. She was so wonderful for our guests and wedding party…they absolutely loved her! My fiancee says time and time again that the best decision we made through the wedding process was hiring Ashley Stork…and I agree whole heartedly!”

Terra (Homewood, Alabama)

“Ashley, Thank you for providing Steven & I with fantastic coordinating services. It takes a very special person who is calm and collected to do what you do! You have chosen a profession that highlights your skill & talents. We are grateful that we had your help & direction of our wedding day.”

Christel & Steven (Birmingham, Alabama)

“I pay attention to details! And so does Ashely! I appreciated Ashely listening to my daughter’s ideas and our plans; then if there was a place of improvement or enhancement on an idea she spoke up and offered her expertise. On wedding day…. I couldn’t have asked for more from Ashley and her girls. She was attentive to our needs as well as executing the details of our venue and wedding. She was everywhere!! And if I even mentioned a statement she was quick and confident to respond with “I can take care of that.” She took care of the details which in turn took care of us. Thank you Ashley!”

Linda (Mobile, Alabama)

“I highly recommend Magnolia Vine Events. They have a helpful planning process that allows you to plan your wedding over your set engagement period (I was lucky to have 14 months to plan!). At each of your meetings you are handed a list of new planning items that you need to take care of (check off) before your next meeting. This was very helpful for a procrastinator like me! I was always recommended vendors based on my vision and budget.”

Mary Margaret (Birmingham, Alabama)

Wow! What a job you did on Saturday! It went so well and really captured the the two of them and what they envisioned. Your checklists and attention to detail were a huge help. I know you must hear everyone say that they could not have done it without you, and I wholeheartedly agree!

Ginger (Birmingham, Alabama)

“Thank you for making our special day so enjoyable, relaxing, and stress free. It took a lot of teamwork between us, my mom, vendors, etc. but because of your organization it was all I imagined and more!”

Blaire (Homewood, Alabama)

“Thank you for all you did..I know it was not always an easy task. The ceremony was beautiful and special, the reception, over the top! We’ve had numerous compliments that it was the best ceremony and reception they’d been to!”

B Gilbreath (Birmingham, Alabama)

“Ashley Stork is an excellent planner and such a help to brides. I have worked with Ashley for several years on weddings in Alabama. Regardless of the size of the wedding, I observe Ashley handling herself in a gracious, professional manner. Ashley’s company,Magnolia Vine Events, has an excellent reputation in our city and state. Ashley’s focus, dedication and desire to be the best, set her a part from others in the industry. It is my pleasure to recommend Ashley and Magnolia Vine Events.”

Carol Riley, Owner of Lillie Jane Florist (Birmingham, Alabama)

“Just wanted to tell you thank you for all that you did to make Sarah’s wedding to Kevin such a complete success. Everything came together just as we had planned and hoped. You were a great help with all the details, both large and small. With all the personnel stress we were under with the passing of her dad, having you to rely on was wonderful. I cannot thank you enough!!! Again, thank you and your team for all you did.”

Jeannie (Birmingham, Alabama)

“Where do we begin? We cannot begin to thank you enough for everything. Our day could not have been any more perfect. It was everything we wanted and more. People are still talking about it!”

Erin and Jason (Birmingham, Alabama)

“You were absolutely the best decision we made for the wedding! I honestly do not know how to begin to express my gratitude to you, not only for everything at the wedding, but also for becoming a friend.

D. Jones (Homewood, Alabama)

“I truly cannot thank you enough for everything you did to make my wedding amazing. You always had brilliant and creative ideas, and you had great checklists!”

Alex (Birmingham, Alabama)

“It has been almost 2 weeks since our wedding and people are still talking about it. Thanks to the hard work from you and your team, our dream “Cajun” Wedding became a reality and we got to introduce a little more of Louisiana to Alabama. You and your team made our wedding day seamless and an absolute blast. God has truly gifted you with the ability to organize and execute such a large and detailed event. You were a total blessing to us and guided us very well through the planning. Thank you for all of the hard work, the fast followup, the execution and for everything you and your team did both before and on the wedding day. My mother and I loved working with you and will most definitely be recommending you and your team to others.”

Ann (Birmingham, Alabama)

“I have now told the 10th person that the best thing that I did for the wedding was to decide to seek the help of a Wedding Planner. The second best thing that happened was that Ann selected you. I still continue to think of all of those special hints you gave to Ann and me on ways to save money, the decorating tips, and overall flow of the wedding day. Just checking on the vendors and vendor contracts was huge. What really relaxes the Mother of the Bride is when she knows that all details have been covered and someone besides her is watching over those details. We put the wedding day into your wonderful hands and came out with a dream of a day.”

Sherry (Birmingham, Alabama)

“What can we say? Thank you so much for all you did for our wedding. It was absolutely perfect! Everything was gorgeous and completely stress free. We could not have wished for anything more. Thank you helping us plan our dream wedding.”

Kim & Dave (Birmingham, Alabama)

“I cannot put into words how grateful I am for you! I honestly do not know what I would’ve done with out you… had the wedding of my dreams! I will miss you.”

Anna (Homewood, Alabama)

“I mentioned to Anna just the other day that I don’t know what we would have done without you for her wedding! The bride and MOB should not have any worries on the wedding day and we didn’t! We were able to enjoy the day as it was meant to be enjoyed! You made the whole planning so much easier but to me, the best part was the wedding day because I was able to enjoy the entire day because you were there to handle any problems that might come up. I would advise anyone who is planning a wedding to definitely have a consultant and they should really have you!!”

Susan (Birmingham, Alabama)

“Unlike Patti and Nicole, I hadn’t interacted with you directly over (the) many months (of planning). Having gotten to know you, having seen you in action, and having seen the fruits of your labors over the past few days, I want you to know how impressed I am with you, both professionally and personally, and how appreciative I am for all you did for us. Thank you very much for giving Nicole the perfect wedding and reception.”
