As a mass communications major at Arizona State University, Ashley’s career began in advertising sales where she developed innovative marketing campaigns for Fortune 500 companies. A self-proclaimed, “old-soul” who has always had a soft spot for nostalgia, her knack for antique finds came in handy during the planning of her sister’s elegant, vintage wedding. It was then that she realized her love of heirlooms and weddings could converge into something greater than a hobby. Leaving her corporate career behind, she created Bourbon & Bloom Vintage Rentals in 2011. A Southern California native who recently moved to Houston, Ashley shares her uniquely personal collection of rustic pieces and polished decor with anyone who wants to add a warm touch of charm to their wedding, special event or photo shoot in Houston, Austin, San Antonio and Dallas, Texas.
