My Background

Hello! My name is Ashley Pelham and this is my beautiful family. I am happily married to the love of my life, Dustin. We are extremely blessed to be the proud parents of our son, Michael. Dustin and I are also expecting another boy in January 2021.

We are residents of Dade City, FL... home of some of the most exquisite wedding venues in the state of Florida! While my husband has been a Dade City Native for 20 years now, we have been loving the country lifestyle as a family for 3 years now. 

My family is my WHY in creating the business of my dreams. They are extremely supportive in my passions within this industry.

Along with these standards came a high level of customer service and satisfaction.
