On the beautifully sunny Saturday of August 18th back in 2012, I had the pleasure of Coordinating the Day of Amy Chung and Anthony Ongaro's Wedding. Filled with family, friends and a unique setting, Amy and Anthony's celebration was a complete reflection of them...fun, quirky and filled with love.
Although I had started my passion and work in Events before their Wedding, I definitely credit this amazing couple for kick-starting Festoons and Flourishes from a dream into a reality. Without their confidence in my abilities and their incredible entrepreneurial spirits, this company might have still been on the horizon and definitely not what it is today.
This is a tribute to both of you...and even though there is no way to thank you fully for everything you have done, hopefully this is a good start.
Where are they now?
After their Wedding, Amy and Anthony relocated out to the Minneapolis area of Minnesota. Anthony is the Marketing Director at Nice Ride, a non-profit organization providing public bike sharing in the Twin City area. He has also been pursuing his passion for Minimalism and Intentional Living in his spare time with his website Break The Twitch. As for Amy, she has been busy starting her own business, reflecting her love for life and people by helping others discover the lives they truly desire.

"Ashley was fantastic coordinating the day of our wedding in August 2012! Upon getting to know Ashley during our first meeting, I immediately decided she was the perfect person for the job. She was organized, asked the right questions to better understand the important details I was looking for…and was incredibly personable. In all of our back and forth communications, Ashley always followed through and kept me on track. Her preparation showed through on rehearsal night as well as the day of the wedding, where everything flowed seamlessly without either of us having to worry about anything. Even with a lot of details to keep track of on the big day, Ashley was a calm and reassuring presence with a smile on her face. She kept everything moving along even when things got a little crazy. When a CD with a particular version of a song went missing in the shuffle, Ashley worked behind the scenes with the DJ to find that specific song…and I'm sure there were other things that I never found out about, since she just took care of it. I would highly recommend Festoons and Flourishes to any Bride who is looking for day-of Coordination or wedding Planning help. She is awesome!"
