The Modrn Company
As certified wedding and event designers, our goals are to work with you to create a beautiful design that goes beyond the pretty, looking to incorporate purposeful experiences throughout your wedding to create amazing memories to be cherished for years to come.
The concept of the Modrn Company works by consistently building strong relationships with professional, award-winning creative partners in decor rental, floral design, entertainment, photography, videography, cake, catering, bartending, stationery, jewellery, wedding gowns and attire, etc. We want to be sure you have the best available vendors to bring your vision to life.
An essential part of wedding planning is having an up to date list of resources to use at any point during the planning and design process. Our curated and organized essential resource list is filled with information and systems that will help you in your planning every step of the way, including timelines, checklists, 3D floor plans, and a full custom prepared design dossier to walk you through every step of what your wedding day will look and feel like.
A ton of information is available online to sort through and compare - if you have hundreds of hours to spare! We have collected and organized the research for you ahead of time, so that you can just sit back and relax. Our goal is to make sure your engagement time is as laid back as you want it to be. You can choose to review the results or integrate your own research in, keeping the process simple and easy.
CEO & Creative Director
With an eye for detail, Ashley's modern and purposeful design comes together in a big picture by getting to know your likes, dislikes, desires and style preferences to create your authentic event. Her background in performance dance lends itself to the creativity in her designed experiences, while keeping it true and consistent to reflect the personality and style of her clients. Travel and nature also have a major influence: "When traveling, I am constantly looking at colours, structures, placement, food, lighting, hospitality and the overall experience created by particular design elements in different spaces around the world. I love surveying the ambiance and bringing that desired "feeling" into couple's designs."
Ashley is a certified designer and wedding consultant with the Wedding Planners Institute of Canada. Her education includes a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology, an MBA Essentials program certificate from Rotman School of Management and an Honours Certificate in International Development Project Management from Humber School of Business.
We value celebrations built from sustainable, high quality and cutting-edge design trends, using supply chains that support top tier local businesses first, while respecting and working to counteract the impact of the carbon footprint large-scale events can have on our environment.
Unique approaches found in the international art and design scene inspire us, as we look to integrate these concepts into new and interesting designs for our clients, infusing food, music and culture into everything.
Community and acceptance are always at the heart of our guest experiences. The Modrn Company celebrates inclusiveness and diversity, seeks community over competition, and works with vendors to create inclusive events truly meant for every person to enjoy.
