Your wedding day goes by too quickly to spend it worrying about the details!

Your wedding celebrates and cements your once in a lifetime love, while bringing together the people you love most in your life to witness it. Vows are exchanged, stories are shared, your community grows stronger and a bit larger, and joy filled memories are created.

At Debonair Weddings, we love to come alongside you to bring your vision for your wedding to life, remove the planning overwhelm, and help you to be more fully present through this exciting season.

Ashley and I met in college, and she has been working with Debonair for 5 years now. I don’t know what we would do without her on wedding day!  

Ashley is my right hand and an extension of my brain. She has an uncanny knack of knowing exactly what support I need and when I need it. She’s always ready to jump in to solve any issue, and I trust her implicitly.  You will be incredibly lucky to have Ashley there on your wedding day to help make sure everything goes according to our plans.

When Ashley isn’t fine tuning details and thinking of next steps on your wedding day, you’ll likely find her managing commercial and residential properties around Indianapolis. She’s passionate about craft beer and sports (go Cubs!), and values her time spent volunteering.  

Ashley is a captain for Brewers of Indiana Guild, where she helps put on Winterfest, Bloomington Craft Beer Festival, and Indiana Microbrewers Festival. She also helps run a chapter of Girls Pint Out, and is active with the Greater Lafayette Chamber of Commerce and Community Relations Advisory Committee.

Associate Planner

Ashley Rhoda

I planned my first wedding in college and was instantly hooked.

The Indiana State Fair held a contest called Marriage on the Midway, where couples could win a free wedding at the Midway at the State Fair. I was the intern tasked with planning their wedding!

While my first wedding wasn’t flawless, it was so incredibly rewarding and fulfilling. I’ve been planning weddings ever since.

I’m passionate about helping couples bring their wedding visions to life, always with top-notch Hoosier hospitality. I’m driven by details and thrive when organized. Friends and fellow vendors have called me unflappable and cool under pressure, and complimented my ability to read a room in order to bring the approach and energy that is needed for each unique moment.

I’m committed to continuing to hone my craft, and am a member of the Association of Bridal Consultants where I received my Certified Wedding Planner designation, and serve on the education committee of Meeting Professionals International and am also a Certified Meeting Professional.
