Who is AB Occasion Design?

Madison Frasinelli - Assistant Planner

I was born and raised in the North Hills of Pittsburgh, and since then feel like I’ve lived in every community Pittsburgh has to offer, from the suburb to the city, and a few rural neighborhoods.


One thing that has never changed for me is my love for events, especially weddings. I still remember growing up, my parents would take my siblings and me to Barnes and Noble and I would head straight to the Bridal Magazines. Spending my days going through stacks of paper drawling out wedding gowns was my favorite activity growing up and not much has changed! My mind was made up when I was in 6th grade and I was first asked what I wanted to be when I grew up, and there was no shaking it, I knew event planning was for me!


I attended High Point University, majoring in Event Management for 3 years, and have one last year where I will be completing at Arizona State University in Hospitality and Management. I have over five years of experience that include non-profit, hotel industry, and event and wedding planning. Through all of that, I have also earned my Wedding Planning and Wedding Design Certification through Bridal Society, which is the nation’s leading bridal certification program.


My best experience thus far has been working with AB Occasion Design, alongside Ashley who has allowed me to learn hands-on just how wedding planning should be, and the steps to a beautiful, unique, and organized wedding!
