Meet Akeeli & Jessica

Akeeli has always been interested in the aspect of design. From a young age, she has designed her spaces from head to toe, and has always chosen creative outlets for work. At the age of 17 Akeeli became a licensed cosmetologist and was always interested in putting design and hair shows together to encourage people to be inspired. From there, she started being interested in more of the design side of things and the preparation of the events. In 2020 she decided to take the leap and dive into the wedding, styling,  and interior design world and unknowingly to her it would jump start the business she always dreamed of.

Jess grew up in Eastern WA and LOVES thrifting, yard sailing etc. She finds the magic in pieces people once treasured. Her detail in projects from home decor, to styling outfits for shoots is unmatched. Jessica has welcomed the cutest baby boy named Jude and her and her husband cherish their new adventure together. In her free time you'll find her dabbling different forms of art and all things DIY. We truly LOVE Jess and everything she brings to Desert & Ash!

LET'S THROW THE WEDDING OF YOUR FREAKING DREAMS

Akeeli at Desert & Ash design is a force of nature. 

She is tireless in everything she does and always gives 120% to her clients. Ive worked with her in multiple events and am always in awe of what she can pull together in such a short amount of time, and everything looks perfect. She has such a keen eye for style and flair in her designs. Her and her husband, Lorin are a wonderful team when working events, and are undoubtedly a power couple. They're quite possibly the most hard working and fun loving pair I know. Im so excited to see what they have in store for the future and to watch the business grow.
