Earlier this year I was invited to be part of a promo styled shoot with the fabulous ladies from Seattle-based wedding planning company, It’s Your Day Events. When I saw the design inspiration board filled with deep blues + bright flowers and learned that the Photographer would be Char Beck, I knew I had to create the arrangements for this shoot. It’s not everyday that you get to collaborate with great people and work with a color palette that makes you literally exclaim out loud. I am so excited to feature It’s Your Day Events on my blog with a Q&A down below and to showcase the floral arrangements I created for their promo shoot: gorgeous and lush – just my style!
It’s Your Day Events is owned by dynamic duo, Ashley Speight and Christina Fesler. These two best friends and colleagues have been planning weddings in Seattle since 2009. I first met them last year through a professional organization, Wedding Network Seattle. Ashley and I serve on the planning committee for Wedding Network Seattle and we worked together on the April 2019 meeting at Trinity Tree Farm. Later last year, Ashley, Christina, and their team came to my studio and did a team-building floral arrangement workshop with me. These ladies really know how to get things done and have fun while doing it!
The It’s Your Day team has grown over the years to include Sara Haverstraw – Lead Wedding Planner, Katie Rodriguez – Associate Wedding Coordinator, and Mercer Brown – Event Assistant.
Q&A with It’s Your Day Events
We provide wedding planning, design, and coordination services, and what we do is at times difficult to picture because the services we offer are intangible. When you are scrolling through beautiful photos, with stunning flowers, and amazing cohesive design; the magic behind that is the planning, design, and coordination.
We were just two best friends who loved planning events and design, that took a leap of faith and started this business in 2009. We had no idea where it would go but we sure are happy that we hung on for the ride. Countless weddings and events later, here we are. We believe our attention to detail, organization, creativity, friendship and plain awesomeness have really driven us to where we are today. We were so happy to bring on Sara in 2012, Katie in 2016 to join our team, and Mercer in 2019 – we have a fantastic crew!
If you work with us, you can expect a calm caring group of wedding besties in your corner. We professionally organize, plan, and coordinate the details. We dot the i’s and cross the t’s. We triple check it all once more. Then, when the day comes, we watch the wonderment and happiness on your face as your wedding day unfolds, just as you dreamed it would.
We are always honored to be a part of each and every one of our clients lives, especially on such a big day. It’s an amazing feeling to truly contribute to someone’s wedding and see their dreams come true.
We often hear from other vendors and our couples on their day that we have been a calming presence. We always have 2 or more coordinators on your day and are a team of good friends that have been in the business for many years, we know our stuff!
We love lush flowers such as peonies and garden roses, but also really unique and fun flowers that add depth and texture. Christina likes more muted palettes with a crisp pop of color while Ashley just loves all the color!
If you are planning a Seattle wedding and need people in your corner who will guide you through all the planning steps, take care of the details, and triple check everything so you can focus on enjoying your event, these are your ladies!

Lastly, I want to give kudos to Char Beck. Even though I had not anticipated being photographed (I hadn’t fully brushed my hair that morning and was wearing my least favorite jeans!), Char offered to take a few head shots and a couple candid shots. On his website he grabs your attention right away with the statement, “You say you’re not photogenic. I’ll prove you wrong.” Thank you, Char – you just did.
Hello and welcome! Thanks so much for taking time to stop by my part of the internet. I have been working with flowers for a long time and I just love helping people make their celebrations absolutely stunning. It is an honor and a priviledge to be a part of weddings and other special events.
In addition to floral design my other loves are yoga, coffee, the outdoors, and my husband and all the amazing people in my life.
