OUR AGENCY FOCUSES ON you… and your wedding day!

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 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 2017-2019! 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 someone’s wedding and see their dreams come true. We love what we do! PS. We are a team of dog lovers as you’ll see, but love all animals :)


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 WWU where she was the CommClub Event Coordinator and interned as an event planner for the Downtown Bellingham Partnership. 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. One thing Ashley loves about the end of a wedding night is all the hugs from the couples and family! 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. Ashley & her husband welcomed a baby girl, Lennon, in early June.

Sara haverstraw // lead Planner & DESTINATIONS

Sara is our Bellingham Based 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 with her two lab doggies, 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 a Wedding Show determined to find an event planner that was in need of an intern, and the rest is history! Sara & her husband relocated to Whatcom County a few years ago, and she is now our 'North End Gal' as well as lead for destination weddings! 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.  They recently welcomed a baby girl, Sophia in December 2018.

Katie Rodriguez// Associate Coordinator & Designer -South end/Kitsap & ELOPEMENTS

Katie is our associate coordinator and designer at It's Your Day. Katie moved to the area a few years ago from Bozeman Montana where she received a degree from Montana State University in Graphic Design. She has a passion for event design, typography, floral design, and interior decorating. Outside of weddings and design, Katie is a lover of anything having to do with the outdoors as long as her sidekick pup Rozly is with her. Her favorite thing to do in Seattle is check out the local breweries with her husband and explore the mountain scene. She also makes a mean bloody mary! She spent the summer of 2016 as an intern enjoying putting every last detail together and using her floral experience and joined the team soon after. Katie works our Seattle and North End Events as well as specializes in the Peninsula & Elopement weddings. In addition, she puts together some awesome mood boards for our clients wedding design.
