Ashley McHone

Owner of Always Flawless

I started this little business nearly 10 years ago and have not looked back since! I have had the opportunity to work with SO many amazing couples and it has been an incredible journey in going from being a one-woman show to having an unbelievable team of planners. 


As my business has grown and changed, so has my role in it. When I started out 10 years ago, I was working directly with EVERY single couple, planning EVERY single wedding on my own and handling all the 'business side' of things. Talk about exhausting! 

I have since built up a team of unbelievably wonderful planners and wedding professionals and have found immense joy in training them to be top of the line vendors. Being able to pass on all the knowledge I have gained over the years has truly allowed us, as a team, to help more couples than I ever thought possible. 


While I still take on a few weddings every year, my role is primarily to manage both our planning team and elopement team, and to ensure that they are exceeding all expectations. The more I am able to help and support them, the better we are going to serve you!

What We Are All About

To put it simply: We are about EXPERIENCE.  Our goal is to provide you with an unforgettable experience and we wholeheartedly believe that an elopement should have the same quality experience as a full blown wedding. 
Our Philosophy

We believe in getting to know our clients and want you to always feels 100% comfortable.  We also  believe that building trust and friendship is what makes you feel comfortable and is what allows us to create an elopement that truly feels like you. 

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 The Always Flawless Team

Here at Always Flawless we are team of highly experienced wedding professionals and we know exactly what it takes to create an epic one of kind elopement. Not only are we legit pros, but every person on our team genuinely cares. We know this is a once in a lifetime experience for you and we want to make it feel like the absolute best day of your life! Our goal is to never make you feel like 'one of the many.'

Now, let's dive into a few of the many reasons why working with our team of pros is just so beneficial to you!

Built In Backup

Should anything happen to anyone on your elopement team (aka. a death in the family, an extended vacation while you have questions, a broken ankle, etc) we've got you covered! Because of how we operate, one of our other team members can easily jump into the mix and bring your elopement to life! 

Guaranteed Experience

None of our team members are 'new' to the game. In fact, many of them also perform high end weddings on the weekend, but have a soft spot for intimate elopements. Even though they are all HIGHLY experienced, they have also gone through extensive training to ensure we are all providing the high level of experience our clients have come to expect. 

I also personally mentor ALL of our team members to ensure they are exceeding all expectations.

More Creativity + Customization

As much as I hate to say it, most elopement companies are focused on providing a very old school cookie cutter elopement experience. 

Not here! Our team wholeheartedly believes in customization and dreaming up the PERFECT elopement day for you. We have more people to bounce ideas off of and are able to tailor a vision specifically to your needs. 

Higher Standards

I have set VERY high expectations for all of our team members and am here to ensure those standards are met. You won't have any of our pros falling off the face of the earth, dropping the ball on deadlines or not getting back to you for weeks at a time. 


Our Custom Approach

Staying organized is key. Our online planning system not only helps us stay organized, but it ensures all of our couples are being taken through the exact same process. It also makes it soooo much easier for us to all stay on the same page. 

We want to provide you with a stellar experience and customize the day to fit your needs. We truly want the day to feel like you and aren't going to give you the exact same ceremony script and bouquet as every other couple.

We have been planning elopements for a long time now and have perfected our planning system. We have learned what works, what doesn't work, and the best way to walk you through the entire elopement planning process.

What Are Our Clients Saying...

Parastou + Ali's Timeliness and Cultural

Parastou + Ali

"With only a few months to plan my (destination) wedding, I knew I needed a planner. I booked the full service design package and Ashley and her team nailed it! I wanted an experienced planner who knew the venue inside and out, had good taste, AND was calm and patient. Ashley has all of that to offer, and more! She delivered on time and on budget at every stage. She was calm and patient when I would spiral. I mean, what else can you ask for? THANK YOU for making our day!"


Amanda + Bill

"Ashley was AMAZING - my wife and I could not have asked for anyone better! We had Ashley for a year of planning and she helped us refine exactly what we wanted the day to look like, how we wanted it to feel, and how to maximize our budget.


Ashley is also one of the nicest and most sincere people. She felt like a real friend by the end and we were sad when it was time to stop working with. Ashley and her team are simply the best!"

"We can't thank Ashley and the Always Flawless team enough for helping us plan our wedding. It was dreamy, magical, unique and just so "us!" Several of our guests have said that it was the coolest wedding they have ever attended!

Looking back at the photos and video (which we've already done MANY times), it was truly an unforgettable experience and wouldn't have happened without Ashley and her team. Thank you for bringing our day to life!"
