About Our Team


Ashleigh Baker


Hi there!

I have always been passionate about event planning. I can be described as the friend or family member who was always the first to volunteer to host a baby or bridal shower. Nothing brought me more joy than to plan for weeks and months for an event and then see it unfold. Planning, designing and coordinating weddings is my dream job! I love being surrounded by love all day and being a part of a moment so special. I have an extensive background in the hospitality industry which fed my desire to ensure people's happiness. I realized my passion for weddings when it was my turn to walk down the aisle. Fascinated with table centerpieces and timelines I became! And Everything After the Ring was born just a few months later.  My team strives to ensure your wedding day is everything you dreamed of. Combining our passion of people, love and weddings, we will make sure that wedding planning is fun and your special day is beautifully executed.

Holly Martin


Holly was born and raised in Charleston, SC and loves everything about life in the Lowcountry. She is a graduate of Clemson University where she learned all about the hospitality industry while earning her degree in Tourism Management. Ever since she was a little girl, she has loved planning any type of event, so it only made sense for her to go into Wedding Planning. She has been assisting with wedding planning and events for many years now. Holly loves everything about wedding days because they are full of love and happiness!


Alyssa Brown


Alyssa grew up in upstate South Carolina and moved to Charleston to attend the College of Charleston, determined to start her career in the events industry. While studying Hospitality and Tourism Management she took on internships with a local wedding planner and florist, which sparked her interest in the wedding industry. When she graduated in May of 2019 she searched for her dream job, to work alongside an established wedding planner. Luckily! She found a job with Ashleigh at Everything After the Ring as the Lead Floral Designer and Assistant Wedding Panner

Candace Lydakis


Candace grew up in both New Jersey and Florida, but has been in South Carolina since 2005. She went on to attend and graduate from Coastal Carolina University, then made her way to Charleston and settled into a career working with children. Eventually, while earning her master's degree in Instructional Technology Leadership, Candace stumbled into assisting with weddings! She officially joined the Everything After the Ring team in 2021 and loves getting to work "behind the scenes" to set up magical days for each couple! During wedding receptions, she loves a great live band and listening to all the thoughtful and humorous speeches.

Micheal Howard


Micheal was born and raised in the wonderful state of Maine. Earning her degree in Early Childhood Education, she graduated from The University of Maine back in 2018. Although she loves Maine, she was ready for warmer weather and decided to move to Charleston in 2020. While planning her own wedding she began to realize how much she loved organizing and planning all the little details. Micheal had met Ashleigh because she and the Everything After The Ring team created the florals for her wedding! She was so excited when the opportunity arose to become apart of the team. It was one of the best decisions she’s made and she feels extremely lucky to work alongside such hardworking, amazing women. Although Micheal loves watching a wedding day come together from start to finish, her favorite part of the day has to be watching the couple’s excitement right before they walk down the aisle!
