Ashley Bodenheimer, Event Consultant
I am so happy to introduce y’all to our newest merrymaker, Ashley, who joins Merrymaking Events from Grandover Resort in Greensboro. I met Ashley years ago and we instantly hit it off, having a lot in common…. down to attending the same college! I am thrilled to welcome such a positive energy to the Merrymaking Events team. I know her attention to detail and wonderful attitude will make many dream weddings become a reality. She is wonderful to work with and a great person to know. Welcome to the team, Ashley!
I’m a southern woman that exudes class and LOVES to radiate true southern hospitality. I’m carefully considerate of my clients’ feelings and personality through the planning process and am a friend and ally through it all.
I strive to give you what you want with a TWIST. My sassy attitude with a sweet southern drawl proves it easy to get what we want with HONEY (You catch more flies with honey than with vinegar.) Like any true southerner, schmoozing is what I do best! Chatting up vendors to get the best prices and services is my forte.
After earning a B.S. in Communication, I joined forces with the American Cancer Society planning social events including galas, golf tournaments, etc.
Realizing I had a knack for planning and executing social events I wanted to move on to strictly weddings and celebrations. I went to work planning weddings and special events for one of North Carolina’s exclusive resorts, The Grandover Resort in Greensboro. Working in a hotel setting, I learned how to focus on logistics, but had very little opportunity to showcase my creativity. I love to create new ideas and watching them flourish.
Business, like Love, is all about the timing. Having known Kat for some years, when the chance to work with Merrymaking Events corresponded with “good timing” in my personal life, I decided it was the perfect time to live out my dream.
I’ll sweep you off your feet with fresh ideas and my calming sense of professionalism. I want to plan YOUR perfect day so give me a call and we can schedule a consultation where we’ll sit a spell and chat about your big day.
Let’s get started!
