Ashley Louise Keeney bio


Ashley was born in Cleveland, Ohio and grew up just east of the city in Painesville, Ohio. She went on to attend Mount Union College (now the University of Mount Union) and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in sport management. After discovering she had enough credits to graduate a semester early, Ashley began searching for a job at a high-end resort in Florida. She was hired by the recreation department at Hawks Cay Resort on Duck Key. While there, Ashley began an independent study program to become a certified bridal consultant through The Association of Bridal Consultants (ABC). She was then promoted to the position of Wedding and Special Events Manager at the resort. This is where her career in wedding and event planning began and where she first met and began working with Jill.


After leaving Hawks Cay, Ashley joined Tranquility Bay Beach House Resort as the Activities Director. This position slowly evolved into the Director of Sales and Catering and her working relationship with Jill continued. While at Tranquility Bay, Ashley met her now husband, John. In 2010, she and Jill worked together to create the wedding of her and John’s dreams. A few years and a few kids later, Ashley is now directly part of the Mile Marker and It’s Your Day teams. She performs ceremonies as a Notary Public, does full wedding coordination and manages the marketing.
