Jennifer Ashford, Owner and CWP
Hello out there! I'm Jen Ashford and I founded Altar Ego Weddings in 2007 to help brides have a stress-free wedding planning process. I'm blessed the business has grown so much in the past 10 years! Austin is a top destination wedding location in the United States and brides from all over come here to get married!
As a bride, you should have an "experience" on your wedding day. That shouldn't include worrying about which vendors have arrived, whether or not you're on time or who's supposed to be where. I will do that for you while you focus on getting married! Nothing makes me happier than a worry-free bride having a blast on her wedding day! I'm often asked what kind of wedding I specialize in. My only answer is, "all of them." Weddings can be big or small, any and every color of the rainbow, modern, classic, rustic, whimsical or even off-the wall! Every couple is unique and has their own ideas! I'm here to make it happen!
I hold an undergraduate degree and an MBA, so I enjoy the planning and organization side of the business. I have earned the designation of CWP, Certified Wedding Planner, through AACWP. In the organization, I serve as an instructor and facilitator for the AACWP training course, mentor and serve on the Board of Directors as Education Chair.
It will be my honor to use my experience, expertise and vendor relationships to make your wedding day what you want it to be! Let me take the stress off you so you can just relish planning your wedding!
I have been trained by the American Association of Certified Wedding Planners (AACWP) and adhere to a strict code of ethics and agree to a high level of conduct personally and professionally. I enjoy being a part of highly qualified network of wedding planners!
Jenna Windham, TWP
Hi everyone! I’m Jenna Windham and I am proud to be on the Altar Ego Weddings wedding planning team in Austin. I have a mixed background planning a range of events from weddings to state conferences to annual meetings and holiday parties. Throughout my planning experience I have found a special passion for planning weddings. I truly enjoy the organization and planning process and love getting to work with amazing couples and help their ideal weddings come to life!
I am a Trained Wedding Planner (TWP) through AACWP and also have a Bachelors of Communications from the University of Texas (Hook ‘em Horns!).
If you need someone to help you stay on track and keep you organized while assisting you with any wedding details and decisions, I’m your girl! My goal at the end of your wedding day is for you to have breezed through the celebration completely stress-free! Rest assured I will handle any obstacle that comes along so you just enjoy your special day with family and friends.
Jen Krause, Wedding Planner
Hayo! I'm Jen Krause. With a background in graphic design, I have an eye for detail. I'm one of the weird ones who has just as much of a right brain as a left -- I love pretty palettes and cohesive designs as much as spreadsheets, timelines and diagrams. While I'm not married myself, I believe weddings are one of the most special occasions you can share with someone, and I strive to make the day full of relaxation, laughter & happy tears. No stress allowed!
I have a B.F.A. from the University of North Texas (Go Mean Green!). In addition to being a planner, I am also a designer/calligrapher. In my spare time, you can typically find me with ink-stained hands, sitting at my messy desk and sketching whatever song is currently stuck in my head.
I also have experience in event rentals & wedding videography/editing to lend to your planning. I truly love all aspects of the wedding industry, and I can't wait to help make your big day the best day ever!
