Jennifer Ashford, Owner and CWP - Austin

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 to two awesome and completely different Texas markets - Austin/Texas Hill Country and Dallas-Fort Worth!  I'm excited to serve both markets and bring a unique perspective to planning between both areas!  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!

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!

Jen Krause, Wedding Planner - Austin

Hayo! I'm Jen Krause, and I am based in Austin. 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!

Hi everyone!  I'm Heidi Miller and I'm based in Dallas-Fort Worth.  I have been coordinating special events for 9 years and absolutely love it!  I get so excited to work with a new couple! I strive to capture your vision, personality, and passion in your wedding – whether the event is lavish or simple, contemporary or traditional, I want to make sure the ceremony and reception represent your journey together and is a wonderful celebration of your new marriage!  I listen, I am passionate, and I will execute the wedding YOU want!

A good planner can plan for various scenarios,  but no matter how much you plan, something inevitably will happen that you do not expect. Have you heard the quote from Of Mice and Men, that the best laid plans often go astray?  I believe the best planner must be flexible and react quickly to unforeseen circumstances so that you can continue to relax and enjoy your family and friends! My business degree and military background have taught me to not only have contingency plans but also to adapt quickly and be decisive when faced with unexpected situations! Until the very last guest departs your reception, I will be behind the scenes overseeing every little detail to make sure the event flows effortlessly, and you leave with memories you will cherish for years and years to come!

Hey there!  I’m Kiersten Shivers, a Dallas-Fort Worth planner for Altar Ego Weddings.  I’ve been planning all types of events – socials, weddings, philanthropic events – for about four years, and I have truly fallen in love with planning weddings!  

I love the design aspect of weddings: the colors, flowers, dresses and even the font style on invitations. I’m one of those strange people who loves paperwork, budgets, timelines and organization. 

My favorite part of planning weddings is getting to serve clients. It brings me overwhelming joy to host and serve others! I would love to be able to serve you as you plan your wedding and ensure that each detail is completely perfect. 

I am a Trained Wedding Planner (TWP) through AACWP, and I am currently working on becoming a Certified Wedding Planner. I have my Bachelors of Business Administration-Marketing from Baylor University (Sic ‘em!).
