We feel life and love is a celebration and that making memories with those closest to you is the most important thing. Your event is more to us then a social gathering, a wedding, a party- it's a memory that will last forever and we will cherish every part of it.

We customize every experience using your individual style and aesthetic. Each couple is unique and your wedding day should reflect just that. From guest list creation to cutting the cake, we will guide you every step of the way!

Hey there I'm Jess! I'm so excited to get to know you both as a couple and plan your incredible wedding day! I'm an Arizona born local girl with a passion for the outdoors, design, and I love a good fitness challenge.

Family & friends are the most important thing in life, and nothing beats a long vacation with your loved ones where you can relax, adventure, and make new memories.

I studied Interdisciplinary Studies of Art at Arizona State University and fell in love with the wedding industry during my internship at Arizona Weddings Magazine. Since then, I have been in the professional wedding industry involved in everything from a bridal gown consultant, to wedding photo & video sales.

My favorite part of designing a wedding is learning what's most important to you both as a couple and then crafting that into different parts of your day. I'm bubbly, peppy, and will more than likely say "aww" or "oooh" a lot when I hear about your wedding vision! I love spoiling our couples and make sure they feel super special throughout the planning process. My favorite part about the wedding day is when the bride and groom exchange vows- it's so romantic!

Hi!​ I'm Ashlee and I ​can't wait to help you plan your perfect wedding day!​ I'm a simple girl born and raised in Arizona who loves getting to know people and what makes them happy. I received my degree in Accounting from ​Arizona State University​ and am a proud Sun Devil for life! 

I love traveling the world, reading a good book, and hiking with my dog. 

My motto in life is, "If you aren't dancing or laughing, you aren't living!".

​I believe that tasty food, great conversation, and close friends and family can get you through anything life throws at you. My background in business and accounting will ensure your wedding day will be executed flawlessly from start to finish. I know how important your day is to you and your loved ones, and I take that to heart.

My love for the planning process and seeing a beautiful event come together, is what fuels my passion for wedding planning. My favorite part to ​​every ​​wedding day is ​when ​the ​bride and groom see each other for the first time​. There is nothing more intimate than staring into the eyes of ​the​ person you're about to conquer the world with!

Modern Grace Events started over Brunch! Ashlee and Jessica have known each other since high school and have grown to become lifelong friends since then. Finishing each other's sentences, showing up in matching outfits, and ordering a coffee just as the other likes it, are just a few things that make them "sister friends!" They have a strong friendship that feels like a sisterhood, and both truly love watching couples celebrate their love on wedding days. 
In 2015 they went out for brunch to catch up on life, love, and indulge in their second favorite! (Wine is their number one, but then again isn't it everyones?) At the time, Jess was working at a wedding dress shop as a bridal consultant and Ash was prepping to attend her fifth wedding that Spring season. They started chatting about weddings & brides and that's when the idea of becoming wedding planners went from a topic of conversation to an actual business plan. 
"We wanted to work at something that truly intrigued us to go above and beyond- so when we found wedding planning, we realized that this was more then just a career to us- this was our calling." -Jess
"When we started working together, we realized how well each of our different skills complimented one another perfectly!" -Ash 
Fast forward to present day- these ladies always say how blessed they feel to be able to work together on weddings & events that captivate their hearts, invoke their passions, and speak to their souls. Ashlee being more process driven and Jess being more design-led, brings a fresh outlook on ways to curate a sophisticated, refined, yet entertaining event. Jessica is the brunette who loves coffee almost as much as she loves dogs. Actually, same can be said for Ashlee as well! You can find Jess taking her dog to the park on weekends, and spending way too much money on home decor & the movie theater (she's an avid movie go-er!). Ashlee enjoys brunch with her friends and snuggles with her pup before bedtime. She is obsessed with The Bachelor/The Bachelorette (seriously, weddings are their calling!) and will always get the dance party started. Oh and they both were each other's Maid of Honor at each other's weddings. As they like to say best friends make the best business partners which make for the best wedding day for clients.
The ladies of Modern Grace Events are in the business of bringing your epic love story to life, and that's simply what they do! They're here to help you create your perfect wedding day, while keeping the planning process memorable and enjoyable.
