Natalie Dawley, owner of wedding planning company Two Be Wed, and Ashley Blake first met in 2013 when Ashley kicked off her hospitality career at Aztec Events & Tents. Ashley quickly became one of Two Be Wed's favorite go-to-gals for all things rentals.
Natalie is a native Houstonian. She attended University of St. Thomas and graduated in 2002 with a BA in Communication with an emphasis in public relations. Natalie and Scott Dawley married in 2003 and have three beautiful children Oliver-11, Eliott-9, and Amelia-8.
Her passion for entrepreneurship and relationships has made her a successful and trusted business woman. Natalie has mentored many aspiring and established business owners over the years. She loves seeing others pursue their dreams and playing a part in their entrepreneurial story.
Ashley is a native Texan, born and raised in San Antonio until moving to Houston to attend The University of Houston. It was there she pursued an education in Hospitality Management & graduated Magna Cum Laude from the Hilton College in 2012. While attending UH she joined the Zeta Tau Alpha sorority and soon after met her husband Randall at his Sigma Phi Epsilon event.
Over the years Natalie and Ashley have also become dear friends & colleagues. Ashley chose Two Be Wed to co-plan her wedding, and Natalie was there to witness their nuptials, a special memory for both of them.
With Ashley’s experience in large production catering and her background in outside sales for events such as The Texas MS150, Houston Rodeo Cook-off and countless corporate events and tented weddings she perfectly complements Natalie's entrepreneurship and creative skillset. Her confident attitude, strong work ethic, logistical genius, and straightforward approach make Ashley the ideal business partner for Natalie, and the perfect CEO of TBWCreatives.
Together, Natalie and Ashley look forward to serving their clients, and for the opportunity to Create, Collaborate, Connect, and Celebrate with you!
