We are thrilled to bring you belles a new series called “Fancy Meeting You” in which you will get to know each of our fabulous consultants. We work together as such a great team and we are just delighted that you found us.
First up is Ashley Granum, our lead consultant heading up our Charlotte office! Ashley is from Warren, OH and now lives in Charlotte with her husband Chris, fur babies Ali and Lulu and their sweet bun in the oven Mason.
Ashley’s favorite thing about Charlotte is that it is always changing. There are always new places to explore and new restaurant to try. She says, “we are growing growing growing here!”
Best date night in Savannah: dinner on River Street and a carriage ride through the Historic District
In a different life I would be… one of my dogs. Lucky pups!
If I were a flavor at Leopold’s I would be: the seasonal flavor, always changing!
My favorite thing about weddings is… seeing the bride come down the aisle.
Best advice for a newly engaged couple: it’s never too early to start planning. The more items you can check off your list, the better. And there will ALWAYS be something to do.
A day in my life looks like: The pups are anxiously awaiting me outside my bedroom door every morning. They do their happy dance as I make my way to feed them and let them out. My goal is to tame the happy dance as we get closer to baby’s arrival…(it’s literally like the running of the bulls down the stairs in the morning). I grab a greek yogurt and a coffee (half-caff these days), and hit the laptop for emails. Sometimes the online shopping/ Facebook/ pinterest bug gets me and I end up spending more than my fair share of time on the laptop. Insert shower, meetings, baby G checkups and errands here. Eventually, I do the household chores and the occasional prenatal yoga session. Followed by a little trash-TV and usually more laptop time. Late night baby kicks and hopefully enough sleep to get me through the next day. 😉
All weddings should have: CAKE!
The best part of my job is that… no day is the same. I love the spontaneity of wedding planning. I would be miserable if I had to sit behind a desk all day… I know this from experience.
