I adore the ladies of Agape Planning. Not only are they incredibly talented, organized and experienced, but they are a joy to work with! Whenever I have a wedding with them, I know my couples are getting the absolute best, and that every detail will be taken care of. With Agape’s shiny new website it seems the perfect time to introduce you to their new look, and learn a bit more about why these ladies are truly the best of the best.

Tell us a little bit about how you got started in weddings?
Ashley started planning weddings and special events with her own, over 12 years ago. From there it just blossomed into a business.. Laurin was actually a former Agape Planning Bride, who go “bit” by the love for planning weddings.
How would you describe your artistic style?
Ever-changing, passionate and articulate. We love assisting our clients in devising a scheme and flow to their weddings that is completely unique to them.
What inspires you?
Wow, that’s a tough question. But here goes: our family, friends, God, nature, and of course other talented people who love what they do.
What do you love about weddings?
Being able to take a Bride’s vision, and turn it into their reality, knowing they will enjoy their day from start to finish. Working with amazing vendors, and having a team I adore.
What are the most important factors couples should consider when choosing a planner?
They should click with the planner and know this person genuinely wants what is best for them, even when it means telling the client something they don’t want to hear, but what is best for them and their special day. Someone who is passionate and extremely organized, with several years of experience. Why take a chance on your “one day” with someone freshly out the gate in the planning world. Mistakes and accidents shouldn’t be seen, but handled in the “background.”
What sets you apart from others in your field?
Our passion and talent for what we do, our years of experience, and of course our extremely satisfied customers and venues that refer our services.
What advice do you have for newly engaged couples?
Set a budget, be realistic about your expectations for that budget, and stick with it. Don’t be afraid to say “no” to the extras, because there are always going to be extras. At the end of the day, it doesn’t really matter if you upgraded the napkins, added that extra ceremony floral design, or had 3 kinds of cake. What matters is that you married your best friend and didn’t break the bank to make it happen…
