Meet The Team
Blog By: Megan Hefler & Monique Ashcraft
Here at Dragonfly Farms, it’s important for us to get to know our couples so we can understand their vision for their wedding or event. In the same way, we want you to get to know the professionals on our team who will be helping you make your special day unique.
As your venue, we make it our mission to curate your wedding vision, help orchestrate the early planning details, and ensure the day itself runs according to plan. When the inevitable arises, you will be able to continue sipping your mimosa, knowing that our team is representing your vision.
To help you bring your vision to life, we hold an Open House every month for our booked couples only. This provides a unique opportunity to work closely with our staff prior to your big day. During the Open House we work with you to choose decor pieces, show family, friends and vendors the space, plus chat with us about any specific needs.
Before arriving on your event day, our team is busy bringing your vision to life! This includes anything from setting up the tables and chairs needed, to cleaning the ceremony space, to placing decor and any additions. All that will have been previously discussed during your final meeting with our staff. During your event, a team is provided to help answer questions for you and your guests, as well as make sure all facility needs are met for the day. Towards the end of the event, we’ll help gather any personal items going home with you and tackle the breakdown. No cleanup is needed on your end!
No matter the wedding or event package, we provide turnkey service from set-up through breakdown.
The Dragonfly Farms Staff!
Hi I’m Carrigan! Before getting into the bridal industry, I had a career as a professional figure skater and coach. I loved sharing my skating passion, that I’ve had since the age of three, with the kids that I trained. I joined Dragonfly Farms back in June of 2019 under an internship for my Bachelor of Science in Entertainment Management and worked my way up the ladder. I fell in love with all things weddings and wanted to focus on this newfound passion of mine. To me, Dragonfly Farms was so special in more ways than one and I knew that one day I would get married here. That’s exactly what I did! I married my husband at Dragonfly Farms in 2021 and we now are on a new adventure as parents to a spunky little girl. When I’m not with my family I love going out and sharing lots of laughter with friends.
Hi, I’m Monique. Outside of work I’m a full-time mom to 3 energetic kids. When I have down time my husband and I like to go to karaoke together. Fun fact, that is how we met 7 years ago! I spent several years of life training in ballet, theater, and runway modeling. After graduating college in 2009 with an Associates of Science in Massage Therapy, I knew then what I know now; the wedding industry always had my heart. I am a former Dragonfly bride and loved the venue so much I chose to stick around and follow my dreams.
Hi I’m Megan. When I’m not at Dragonfly Farms, I’m working at my part time job serving, managing my online business, and being a mom to a toddler. When I have free time, you can find me and my family at the pool or riding ATV’s. Once I planned my own wedding from start to finish, I didn’t want to stop and joined the Dragonfly Farms family!

Ashley here! My favorite things to do are scalloping, jet skiing with my boyfriend, hanging out with our friends, and cuddling our sweet chocolate lab named Harley. I always like being on the go and trying new things, whether that be a cooking class or convincing my girlfriends to take a bungee workout class with me. I graduated in 2017 with a Bachelor of Science in Communication Sciences and Disorders and am currently working on my master’s degree. I am a speech therapist and love ensuring everyone has a voice! A voice we actively listen to here at Dragonfly Farms.

Hello, I’m Jaycie! Outside of work I’m a full-time college student pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Marketing with a minor in Human Resources. Before I chose my business major, I wanted to go into event planning, and that’s how I ended up in the wedding industry. When I have some free time, you will most likely catch me line-dancing or four-wheeling. I love putting a smile on people’s faces and I’m not afraid to drag you out on the dance floor!

Hey there! I’m Samantha! Outside of work, I am a full-time college student pursuing my Associates of Science, going for my registered nursing license, a phlebotomist, and a full-time dog lover! In my free time, I like to be with my family, creating memories and taking pictures. For as long as I can remember, I have always found weddings to be magical. Working with Dragonfly Farms gives me the feeling of bringing someone’s fairytale to life, I just can’t get enough of the magic!
