The Woman Behind the Name…

 “To create something exceptional, your mindset must be relentlessly focused on the smallest detail.” -Giorgio Armani


Ashleigh Bivins is the owner and lead planner/designer of API. With 3 young kids, she is the mama who planned all of her children’s parties and “go all out”. Ashleigh was often asked, “why don’t you plan parties and events for others?” So in the winter of 2016- she decided to do just that. With her background in Elementary Education, she is able to appeal to the kiddos. She knows what has all the kids talking and what’s trending!
Kids parties turned into other social events like baby showers, church conferences and sip and sees, to name a few. Larger social events turned into weddings. Weddings that have been featured in some major publications, like Alabama Weddings.
Ashleigh is grateful for the growth that her business has had and looks forward to more accomplishments and more memorable moments for you and your families and friends.



When planning any event, there are hectic behind-the-scenes moments. Our Associate Planner, Shevita is the perfect team member that jumps in to make everything perfect. Her administrative background ensures that all i’s are dotted and t’s are crossed. Having Shevita on board is like having our personal onsite comedian, warden, and mama! We are grateful to have her as part of the API planning team!
