That’s what you’ll get when you work with us.

Outsourcing can be scary, but it doesn’t have to be. Meet the team you’ll be working with and know that you’re so welcomed and supported here. 

We’re here to be the (marketing) brains of your business so you can see steady growth, better inquiries, and consistency so solid you’ll never have to take on another blog post, pin, or SEO strategy by yourself ever again. Phew.

Hi there! We’re Ava & the Bee, the in-house marketing studio for wedding professionals ready for

inclusive, results-driven marketing that creates freedom in their business and cultivates a client experience

before couples ever start the conversation.

In a world where couples want connection with their wedding vendors and search for the pros they work with online, you can’t forget about your online presence. 

Still, it can be challenging to build the kinds of connections you want to have with dream clients. There’s so much that goes into having a ‘good’ online presence as a wedding pro. Sometimes it feels like too much to handle on top of your existing clients and alllll the weddings you’re already working.

We get it.

Running your wedding business can be overwhelming. But it doesn’t have to be. By outsourcing your marketing, you can not only elevate your business as a whole but also offer a superior client experience before your dream couples ever inquire. If that sounds perfect, you’re definitely in the right place!

I’m Ava, a former wedding pro turned marketing expert who fell in love with the industry allll the way back in high school.

I’ve never looked back.

Wide eyed and just 23 years old, I co-opened a bridal boutique, wedding planning, and florist company in Savannah, GA fresh out of college. While I loved the wedding industry, I found that I was absolutely obsessed with marketing my business, too. While some of my fellow wedding pros found the analytics, the blog posts, the Pinterest pins tedious, marketing brought out my inner creative. 

Since our marketing was so aligned, we created such solid connections with our clients that we scaled to a 7-figure wedding business in just a few years. Still, I felt a tug inside pulling me in a new direction.

At that point in my wedding career, I’d sold hundreds of gowns, planned over 100 weddings, and made more bridesmaids’ bouquets than I care to admit. We’d built a loyal following — customers would drive hours to our shop knowing we were the place for them. 

We served our clients well and loved our work.

At a crossroads in my life and ready for a change, I knew what I wanted to do — help fellow wedding professionals create the loyalty we had in our wedding business and make them feel so taken care of and supported that the stress would just — poof! — disappear.

In 2018, I began Ava & the Bee as a virtual assistant helping wedding pros with their marketing. My first clients were wedding vendor friends who trusted me — many of whom are still clients today!

Now, six years later, we’ve grown into a wedding marketing agency that’s been trusted by hundreds of wedding pros to take the stress out of their marketing, help them reach dreamy clients, and feel empowered by their analytics. I’ve been interviewed on podcasts like Weddings For Real, The Wedding Pro CEO, Elevate Your Wedding Business, This Week In Weddings, and more. Every year, I also attend industry events, including Wedding MBA, to stay up to date on all things weddings and marketing.

I always tell my clients that the day I stop learning is the day I stop serving. I’m always doing something for professional development to stay up to date on all the latest in both marketing and the wedding industry, so you can rest confidently knowing that we know both what’s trending and what’s timeless. 

My team and I are truly overjoyed to serve you well and take on your marketing so you don’t have to.

While we're on the subject,

allow me to introduce the dream team.

These women will have your back at every turn.
