Chelsye Harp


Starting her career in the Marketing & Design industry, Chelsye soon realized how much she loved the creative world. From planning corporate and fundraiser events to designing her first wedding in 2007, there was no turning back. Intrigue was established the following year.

In fact, when asked what she loves most about the event industry, she says…“It’s one of the greatest feelings to be a part of an event that will ultimately change someones life. Having an opportunity to plan and design an event for hundreds is incredible. It’s that moment when you see them experience what you have helped to create that you know you have made their vision a reality. We love to make dreams come true.”

Ashley Karanik

Event Consultant

After graduating from the Fashion Institute of Technology with a degree in Marketing and Communications, Ashley began her professional career in the luxury bridal industry. With an interest in events, she filled her weekends assisting some of New York’s most established Event Planners to learn all she could about the wedding industry.

In 2017, she had the unique opportunity to work at the William Aiken House for her first Charleston wedding. After that weekend she knew that one day she’d make Charleston her new home. After five years in Manhattan, she packed her bags, and jet set to the Low Country with her Bengal cat, Ringo.

Detail-obsessed, she loves meeting creative couples and making their design dreams come to fruition. When she isn’t meeting with clients, you can find her at a Crossfit Gym Glass, or enjoying a well-shaken dirty martini out on the town.
