Ashley Tidwell, Owner Sweet James Events Nashville Wedding Planner

Ashley Tidwell

Owner | Wedding & Event Planner

My passion for wedding planning started when I was a little girl.  When my friends were dreaming about the day that they would walk down the aisle, I was dreaming about the day that I would cue them to do it!  I love making lists, making time and making order out of chaos.  I am inspired by the beauty of details and appreciate unique ideas. 

For nearly a decade, I worked as the Lead Catering Event Specialist for Famous Five Dining.  I made connections with vendors and helped plan weddings for countless Brides.  The knowledge that I gained was invaluable and plays a part in every event that I coordinate.  In 2014, I decided to make my dream a reality and started Sweet James Event and became a Certified Event Planner.  I've been busy with happy couples ever since!

People often ask, why the name "Sweet James Events?" Well...naming a business is HARD! So, I decided to go with what inspires me most, my family. My INCREDIBLE husband, Jamey, and our 3 amazing kids, who are all coined with the middle name "James," are my world.  I wouldn't be living this dream without my sweet James' by my side.
