Mission

At Exquisite Events, we believe that everybody should be able to have a magical, stress-free day no matter the budget. We would be honored to be apart of your planning process as your trusted advisor, friend, and wedding expert. Each wedding and couple are special to us, because of that we strive to ensure that your day incorporates all of the elements that make your love story uniquely yours. We ensure that every detail is taken care of flawlessly, from the small details such as your napkin folds to the large, such as what time the photographer is arriving. Our goal is simple, to give you the remarkable day you imagined.

From a young age, Ashley was always decorating the dinner table, watching Wedding shows, and planning fun events for her friends. So it only made sense when she discovered she could use this passion and enthusiasm as a career! 

 

After attending the New York Institute of Art and Design for Wedding Planning she worked as an Assistant Event and Wedding Planner at a country club in Wisconsin. Here she was mentored in creating the wedding and events of your dreams. 

 

In 2018 she decided it was time to put all that she had learned to use and thus created Exquisite Events. She began this company with the goal of bringing her client's visions to life without breaking the bank.

Owner & Wedding Planner

Ashley Zittlow Wedding Planner

Since Hayley was a little girl she dreamed of helping throw the most beautiful weddings. It sounds funny, I know. Most little girls dream of their own big day, all dressed in white. Hayley however always loved the details, the little adjustments such as the color of the flowers changing the whole image of the day. 

 

Hayley fell in love with event planning at the age of fifteen, as this was the first time she had been a part of planning a non-profit event that went on for five more years. She then spent two years as the head event coordinator at one of the biggest golf clubs in Illinois. She is just about to finish her degree at University Whitewater Wisconsin where she has had the chance to intern under some amazing mentors in the wedding world. 

 

She is excited to be joining the Exquisite Events team and is ready to help make your wedding as exquisite as you imagine it to be. Ready to help work side by side with you to create your perfect day from the napkin fold to the champagne flutes.

WHO WE ARE

Koda is 5 years old and loves to give kisses, go for walks, treats, and of course demanding that Ashley pet him though she is working.

When he is not right next to Ashley assisting in her work he can be found either ripping apart his toys, starting longingly at his treat basket, or curled up on the couch on his blanket which must always be left out for him in a very specific spot so that he may sleep on it. 

 

Koda is Ashley's support staff and by ensuring that she is always loved and always being by her side while she works, he helps to create your perfect day!
