We were just two best friends who loved planning events and design, that took a leap of faith and started this business in 2009. We had no idea where it would go but we sure are happy that we hung on for the ride. Countless weddings and events later, here we are. We believe our attention to detail, organization, creativity, friendship and plain awesomeness have really driven us to where we are today. We were so happy to bring on Sara in 2012, Kailin in 2015, and Katie in 2016 to join

our team, we have a fantastic crew! We are beyond humbled that we were voted in the top 5 in the Best of Western Washington Contest 6 years in a row and most recently, WeddingWire Couples Choice Award 2017! Additionally, we are always honored to be a part of each and every one of our clients lives, especially on such a big day. It's an amazing feeling to truly contribute to someones wedding and see their dreams come true. We love what we do!


Ashley speight //Owner PRINCIPAL PLANNER 

Ashley is one of our lead planners and co-owner of It's Your Day. Ashley & Christina met in 8th grade history class, and have been BFF's ever since! Ashley's passion for event planning started back in high school as she held the position of Event Coordinator for her DECA club. After high school, Ashley attended Western Washington University where she was the CommClub Event Coordinator and interned as an event planner, putting on a summer music concert series and first annual Bite of Bellingham. She then received a degree in Communication with an emphasis in Event Planning. In 2009, Ashley teamed up with Christina to start It's Your Day, and has never looked back! Ashley is the one making sure every detail is taken care of and no stone is left unturned in preparation for your event. You may find her in the corner (with Christina) during a down moment on your day, dancing to some awesome 80's or 90's jams (or any good song will do) that the DJ is likely to be spinning. Outside the wedding world you may find Ashley cuddled with her Yorkie, Pickles (maybe her husband too), eating Juanita's chips and gauc, volunteering, or trying to fit in at a Zumba class.

Sara haverstraw // Planner & DESTINATIONS

Sara is our Associate Planner at It's Your Day. Throughout her time at Western Washington University, while securing her Business Management degree, Sara was always coordinating, crafting or decorating for some upcoming festivity! Nowadays, she is in the travel industry on the side, but as a flight attendant for a major Seattle airline. When she's not traveling the globe, she loves to run around Lake Padden in Bellingham or spend the day craft beer tasting with her husband. Sara teamed up with It’s Your Day in 2012 when she was searching for a new passion in life. She attended the Snohomish Wedding Show determined to find an event planner that was in need of an intern, and the rest is history! Sara has recently relocated to Whatcom County and is now our 'North End Gal' heading up our Bellingham based division! She has a bit of a leg up when it comes to honeymoon planning (goes with the travel industry!), and will work tirelessly to throw you an unforgettable event!


Christina Fesler //Owner Lead Planner & principal DESIGNer

Christina is the other owner of It’s Your Day Events. She is a lead planner as well as lead designer and our creative head in the expressions studio. She spent years being “crafty”, and watched as her hobby turned into her passion. She fell in love with planning weddings; she’s a big romantic! Christina has an extensive background in customer service, and a B.A in Social Psychology. Christina and Ashley decided to put their forces together and start the agency way back in 2009. Since then this dynamic duo watched year by year as their business grew and their awesomeness became even more awesome! Christina feels "It’s not every day where you are given front row tickets to someone’s loves story. It’s pure magic.” When not making wedding and event dreams come true, you can find Christina playing with flower arrangements, or at the dog park with her Husband and their really rambunctious Aussie Shepherd named Watson. Christina and her Husband try and practice a vegan lifestyle when they can and enjoy trying new restaurants, sipping on fancy cocktails, laughing with friends and spending time with the amazing people in their community.  

Kailin Cheng // Administrative Assistant

Kailin is our Administrative Assistant at It’s Your Day. Kailin was born in Taiwan, moved to California, Canada, and now resides in the wonderful PNW. Kailin is currently pursuing her BA from UW Bothell! During her high school years is where her event planning inspiration derived from. As silly as it sounds, a lot of her friends asked her to help plan their homecoming and prom proposals to make it innovative and special. She thought it was so much fun and so satisfying after everything goes smoothly so she decided to expand her experience and found her mentors, Ashley and Christina. She started out as an It’s Your Day Intern but now helps the team out in many ways. She often helps couples get set up with some awesome vendors, and is a great go-to gal on the day-of. Make sure to read her latest blog post! She loves seeing people happy and enjoys helping with decor to try and envision the same dream that you have for your own wedding and help make that dream become reality!
