…Just In Time For Your Wedding Planning Needs!

The beautiful Ashley of Bride Sophisticate has officially launched her new website and event planning company at Ashley Kohler Events!  Take at these breathtaking photos from her own wedding…it turned out to be such an incredible day!

To dazzle up her invitations, she applied rhinestone buttons.  For the favor boxes, she bought the white gable boxes, card stock and LCI paper, cut to size and printed the names.  She secured each piece to the box with double stick tape and tied the top with brown satin ribbon!  For the tent escort cards, she applied a wax “K” seal to the front for that little extra touch…


For her elegant wedding held at Chateau Felice, Ashley wore a brilliant dress by designer Augusta Jones.  Lucky for her, her mom owned a bridal salon so they were able to work directly with the designer to create exactly what she wanted!  The very pretty bridesmaids’ dresses were by After Six and the junior bridesmaids’ from Little Flowers.  The guys sported tuxes by Calvin Klein from Tuxedo Den

The day of, she had her makeup applied by artist Trisha O’Connor who was not only talented, according to Ashley, but beyond sweet as well!  Brides, if you’re considering Trisha O’Connor for your wedding day, you can reach her at #(707)-545-8252 or #(707)-490-9923.


 DJ and guitarist, Spencer Sutherland of Sutherland Entertainment, played beautiful guitar during the ceremony.  The couple also had a butterfly release…how romantic! 

Ashley mentioned that their DJ orchestrated their grand entrance into the reception with class and managed to keep the guests happy and dancing all night long.  She was very pleased working with him as he was always prompt with return emails and had a nice calm attitude with everything. 

Brides, I cannot express to you how important it is to interview your vendors to make sure they’re the right fit for you!


“Chateau Felice had this beautiful structure on their veranda, all it needed to make it romantic were a few billowing drapes and hanging crystals to catch the light.  Each bridesmaid put their bouquets in these urns on the head table. Instant centerpieces!” – Ashley


“The drive of Chateau Felice…” 


Wow, what an awe-inspiring, perfect day!

After planning her own drop-dead-gorgeous, spectacular wedding down to the very last detail, Ashley realized she wanted to use her skills, talent and connections to help other brides plan their weddings.  Serving the Northern California area, she’s also willing to travel!


Interested in hiring Ashley to help plan your wedding?  

Per Ashley, the FIRST FIVE BRIDES to email her and mention that they found her via my blog, “It’s A Jaime Thing”, will receive $100 off their total bride package (i.e., either her DOC package or full wedding package so as not to be confused with getting $100 off an a la carte item)!  Just email her at:  bridesophisticate{at}gmail{dot}com.

Brides, to see more from her wedding along with details about it including vendor information, visit her blog at Bride Sophisticate, her bio at Project Wedding and be sure to also visit her new website at to contact her about planning your own wedding!  Hurry up, she’s already booking fast…check her calendar to see if your date is booked or not.  Cheers!
