Ashley McHone

Owner + Lead Destination Wedding Planner

Ashley opened Always Flawless nearly 10 years ago and has not looked back since. While she does still take on a few full service weddings a year, her primary role is to manage the entire Always Flawless team.

Her favorite part of the wedding day?


'The reception reveal! Not only do the couple get to see ALL the details, but they get a special moment together to take it all in. I find many couples practice their first dance here, which I find sooo adorable!' 

Allie Applegate

Lead Planner

Allie has been in hospitality for over 10 years and fell in love with the excitement, romance, creativity and uniqueness of the wedding industry as a whole. 

Her favorite part of the wedding day?

'Watching the bride walk down the aisle. It's a moment of pure adrenaline and anticipation, followed by stillness and contentment. It's also the only part of the day I get to be fully 'present' with all the family and friends in attendance.'

A Little More About Us

Our Philosophy

We believe in getting to know our clients and want to know more about you than simply: 'What's your wedding vision.' Building that trust and friendship is what makes you feel comfortable and is what allows us to create an event that is truly unique and filled with personal touches. 

The Experience

We aim to create a very guided and direct experience, filled with personalization. We never want you to be wondering 'what's next' or 'what should I be expecting.' We also never want you to feel like one of many, and have created a tried and true method that makes you feel like our only client.

Let's Talk About Destination Weddings

As international destination wedding planners, we may be a little biased, but destination weddings are truly the BEST experience! Not only do you get to tie the knot with your significant other, but you get to do it in an unbelievable location with a small knit group of your closest family members and friends. We find that destination weddings are such a relaxing and unique experience for both you AND all of your guests! Now, what makes destination weddings just so incredible appealing?

More Intimate

When planning a destination wedding, you aren't going to end up with a 150 person wedding. Instead, your wedding is going to be filled solely with the close knit group of people you truly want to celebrate with you.

Less Stress

This might sound counter intuitive, but destination weddings tend to be less stressful. Not only are you typically working with a full service planner, but the experience tends to be more relaxed and, because it a week long experience, there is less pressure on your actual wedding day.

Guest Experience

While some guests may initially bock at the idea, destination weddings provide one of the best guest experiences out there. Not only do they get to celebrate with you on your wedding day, but they get to enjoy a relaxed week with close family and friends.

Better Use Of Money

A destination wedding may not end up being much (if any!) cheaper than a traditional wedding, but your money is being used in a different way and isn't strictly going towards a one day event down the street from where you live. It's going into a week long experience with your favorite people!

Now, where in the word are YOU going to travel?

What Our Clients Are Saying...

2017 March 26 Erica and Adrian (660)-X3.

Adrian + Erika

"I don't even know where to start!! My now wife and I loved everything about our wedding and everything came out beautifully and was more than we ever expected!


Ashley and her team are wonderful to work with. They listed to all of your needs and wants, and then work out the details. Working with them took so much stress away and we will be recommending them to all future couples looking to get married. Thank you, Always Flawless, for bringing our vision to life!"


Mila + Dave

"There is nothing Ashley and her team can't do! They made our dream wedding in Yosemite a reality and were, actually, the first vendor we even booked! They helped us research venues and costs in both San Diego and Yosemite. We ultimately ended up choosing Yosemite!


When it came to the wedding day, they made the magic happen and, looking back, I can't imagine everything that would have gone wrong had they not been there to help. I am tremendously grateful for them."

"100 Stars!! I decided to plan a wedding on my own in 4 months and only bring on a Month Of Coordinator. After meeting Ashley and her team, I realized how much better and less stressful my entire planning process would have been if I had brought them on from the beginning.


That being said: They are amazing at what they do!! They took a stressed out bride and allowed me to ENJOY my wedding! Thank you for making our wedding a flawless one!"
