AC Events Wedding Catering – Award Winning Southern Food 

“AC” stands for Ashley Christenson, and Ashley Christenson stands for award-winning Southern soul food. Fans of Chef Ashley Christensen’s restaurants will love the opportunity to mix and match those Southern reimagined classics and comfort dishes for their own wedding event!

Ashley Christensen has been renovating historic buildings into some of Raleigh’s most popular downtown restaurants starting over 12 years ago with Poole’s Diner, and is still expanding the Triangle’s dining scene with two more in 2019. All the while, many community and national charities have benefited from her generosity and her belief in spreading the word of inclusiveness and fairness for all. Ashley was the 2019 James Beard Award winner as Outstanding Chef in America award – the country’s top food honor. This was Ashley’s second recognition from the James Beard Foundation in less than six years, as she was previously named best Chef, southeast. Ashley is an amazing chef and recipe creator, and now a leader in bringing more and more talent into the world of cuisine careers. As her team in each restaurant will quickly attest, she is their mentor, and has created a well-oiled team to run their restaurants and their catering arm, AC Events
