Straight-forward, targeted, actionable conversations that will transform your business.

ONE PArt brand strategist + one part wedding pro
Planner + Owner - KJ & CO.
We have worked with over 300 wedding industry professionals worldwide. From planners, florists, photographers, venues, cake designers, bridal designers, online educators, makeup artists and more! From start-ups to industry elites.

What we've learned is that no matter how coveted, experienced or busy (or not) – EVERY single business comes to a point in their journey where they need help. And this is where we come in!
Ashley brings over 12 years of experience in branding, graphic design, and digital marketing to her role as Creative Director for Ashley & Malone – a branding agency. Whether she’s elevating wedding and hospitality brands or designing influencer lifestyle blogs, her work embodies the spirit of high-end fashion and redefines what luxury branding looks like. Ashley is a regular contributor to The Wedding Academy, Rangefinder Magazine, and Aisle Planner. She made the 2019 edit of The Brand Stylist’s 40 Brilliant Brand Designers and her work has been featured in Style Me Pretty, Create & Cultivate, Inspired By This, and more. 

Krista began KJ & Co. in 2012 and was full-time self-employed in less than a year. Since then, I’ve planned over 50 weddings, including features in Style Me Pretty, Today’s Bride, and Elle Magazine. I love that the wedding industry allows me to tap into my creative side on a daily basis, but I’m truly excited about the industry as a whole, and business ownership. Consulting and coaching other wedding pros to launch and grow their businesses is something I’m very passionate about. Along with elevating our local industry. In 2019, I launched Wed Well Showcase, a successful boutique wedding show to showcase talented pros and connect

The Details


We've refreshed our platform to offer this virtually through Zoom video and live screen share! 


Once you confirm your spot, two weeks before the intensive, we will send you a tailored business workbook that is specific to your industry (floral, planner, photographer, venue etc), this will get to the heart of your brand, what you are trying to achieve, your goals and any pain points that you want help with. 

Both Krista and Ashley will review your workbooks, make notes and strategize prior to the intensive day to make sure you are getting the most of your time. We will arrive with actionable steps, ideas and industry-targeted research so each conversation is focused and unique to your business. 


Every business owner will get two hours each of one-on-one time with both Ashley and Krista. Each two-hour session will be fast-paced (we both work quickly). During your targeted time, you can use the time with each pro, however you like. This flexible time can be used to design branding assets with Ashley, to refresh your pricing structure with Krista or to audit your current business systems or website, so they make your life and your bookings more consistent. 

Every person will be different and we do not want to set limitations to your growth or place you in a box. Which is why this is a power-house, ADAPTABLE business building intensive.
