I cannot thank Whitney and team Whitewood enough for making Hannah and Grant’s wedding such an amazing experience for our entire family. We gave them a mission impossible: plan and execute a seamless and stunning wedding in a house (and yard) still fully under construction. Whitewood pulled it off with incredible calm, logic, and planning skill, and their ability to handle the stresses and uncertainties was amazing. Their ability to handle my wife was even better! The result was too good to be true – although it was. The incredible pictures bear witness to that. When Hannah first told me that she wanted to utilize a wedding planner and designer,

I admittedly wondered to myself why that was necessary. I have misjudged many things in my life, but none more so than the importance of partnering with Whitewood Events. It’s not only that a wedding day (and its build up) is too important to be left to amateurs like me. I could enjoy the whole event as though I were a guest, without ever having to worry about what happened next.
Whitewood Events made the day for my wife and me. I’m sure that there are many other skeptical prospective fathers of the bride out there who may be as ignorant as I was of the value of this role. I would always be happy to set them straight!”

— Phil, Father of the Bride

“When John and I got engaged, I experienced a rude awakening. Aside from the drastic change in location our wedding would need to undergo, I quickly realized that I wasn't going to be able to do it all on my own without sacrificing both my business and my health. Believe me, it was not an easy task to pass along the planning of our wedding to a third party. I always saw myself being immersed in every single detail! But what changed when I let Whitney step in is something I wish everyone could experience. She took my heart's desires, my attention to the details, and the importance of making this day incredibly personal - and she executed. Flawlessly, if I might add. To the point that I told her in the last month or so that I wanted to step away from the details entirely. I wanted to fully take in the day, and I wanted to be surprised - to not see or know the final touches that made our day perfect, until it all came together. And perfect, it was.”

“Whitney is not only an incredible event planner, but an equally incredible human being. From the very start, she was able to understand my vision for our wedding, when I couldn’t even fully picture or explain it myself. She took an abstract image and helped me build the most wonderful team of vendors, all who aligned not only with the exact aesthetic I loved but my personality as well. Whitney was on every call, with every vendor, asking the questions I would have never known to ask, and always ensuring I was comfortable and confident in the decisions we made. Whitney’s help with planning our wedding didn’t stop at selecting the perfect linens, proofing invitations, or finding us the absolute best wedding band anyone had ever seen. There are many opinions thrown around while planning a wedding, and what I found most special about Whitney was her unwavering support of my fiancé and me and what we wanted for our wedding day, above all else. She had conversations with the family that I was nervous to have and always managed to make sure everyone involved felt heard and happy with the outcome. Wedding planning was such a positive experience for us, and we owe that completely to Whitney. 
Our wedding turned out even more perfectly than we could have ever imagined. The day of the wedding was so calm, and if there were any issues, we had no idea! They turned our venue into such a magical space and incorporated details that we didn’t know we needed until we saw it all come to life. Whitney and her team made sure every last thing was taken care of, from the start of the day to the very end of the night. When you work with Whitewood Events, you truly get so much more than a wedding planner. You gain steadfast support from the first conversation to a year later when you need help with an anniversary gift. You gain a contagiously positive attitude, a sense of calm through what would otherwise be stressful, and ultimately, a friendship with a remarkable, selfless human, who also happens to plan perfect weddings!”

“I couldn't have better things to say about working with Whitewood Events. Throughout the planning process, Whitney was so attentive, organized, and resourceful. She became such a close confidant that I found myself texting her wedding progress updates before my lifelong friends. She was readily available to my husband and I while navigating catering contract issues, tough budget calls, and everything in between. Whitney helped to alleviate any stress leading up to the wedding by providing individualized helpful tips and online resources that kept us on track every step of the way. She took the reins and made sure everyone knew exactly what they were to be doing at any given moment, while promoting fun throughout the process. I felt no detail was unattended, as she gave me the planning tools and prompts to think through everything that was important to us. On our wedding day, I knew I had absolutely nothing to stress about because Whitney and her team were on it. She is so calm and well organized that if something had gone awry, I wouldn't have even known about it! Every little detail, every step of the way. I couldn't have asked for a better planner, and am so grateful that we picked Whitney to help us throughout our wedding planning process. I would recommend Whitewood Events to anyone (AND EVERYONE)!”

“Whitney at Whitewood Events is the most amazing wedding planner! We are so happy we opted for the full planning services. The entire process was completely stress free! I am an extremely indecisive person (sorry, Whitney), but she made everything SO easy. We shared our general preferences and vision for the wedding, and she did all the work to bring those dreams to fruition. Whitney is organized, detail-oriented, and easy to work with. She took care of coordinating all of our vendors and ensured everything ran smoothly on our big day. We even gave her the nickname of our magical wedding fairy because she seriously went above and beyond in taking care of everything. At one point during our reception, my feet started to hurt, and I desperately wanted to change into flats. I sat down to find Whitney had already placed them under my chair. Seriously magical! I would highly recommend Whitewood Events to anyone looking to take all the stress and anxiety out of planning a wedding.

“After having Whitewood Events plan our daughter's wedding, I cannot imagine how we would have done it without them. Whitney and Ashley are naturals at their jobs. They are talented, passionate and invested in every aspect of the planning and design process. They listened intently to all of our thoughts and ideas, only to bring them to life more fully than we could have imagined. The team’s professionalism combined with their personal investment exceeded every expectation. It was an extreme privilege and pleasure to work with Whitney and her team. Whitewood Events will not disappoint!”

— vicky, mother of the Bride

“I have worked many events with Whitney and the Whitewood Events team, and I have nothing but positive things to say about these women. Whitney is an incredible planner, designer, and stylist. Beyond that, she connects well with each and every client and makes sure that every couple and wedding guest is served well on the wedding day. I love Whitewood Events and can't recommend them enough for your day! They will go above and beyond and make sure your dream day is executed to perfection!

“My husband Corey and I adored having Whitney as a designer, confidant, and ally throughout our engagement. Having Whitney’s design expertise helped me feel confident that our wedding would be the most beautiful reflection of us and our style, allowing us to spend less time worrying about the execution and bringing everything to fruition and more time focusing on what mattered most: our marriage. Our wedding was originally supposed to take place in March 2020, and Whitewood truly was the calming presence we needed, ensuring that our postponement to September of 2020 was truly seamless. Whitney & team Whitewood were such a comfort and balm to our weary and anxious hearts, and we’ll be forever grateful to have them as a part of our story and celebration.“

“Where do I even begin?! Whitney & the entire Whitewood Events team made every single dream of mine come true. Even while planning (& re-planning) a wedding through a pandemic, Whitney continued to exceed all expectations every step of the way! She was so patient when we had to change plans just a few short months before the wedding, she designed an event that captured our style and story completely, and she is just all-around talented, fun, and amazing. I would hire her team again in a heartbeat! If rain on your wedding day is good luck, then we were oh so very fortunate to have a thunderstorm looming over our outside event, and it was still the BEST day of our lives! Whitewood was quick to the punch to ensure everything ran smoothly, and it was the most fun night we could have imagined. So many of our friends and family have mentioned that they now want to use our exact vendors for their next event. Everything considered, this team is beyond amazing and the most fun group to make sure you have a perfect wedding, and I can't thank them enough! These will be memories I will never forget!”

“I would like for it to be known that Whitewood Events, Daniel and Anna Shackleford, Ashley Stalvey, and whoever our limo driver was are the best humans in the history of the world. Whitewood expertly planned every detail of our weekend, while making us feel so very special. Sarah reminds me often that it was "the best day of her life". I am sure that was so because Whitney made all of our wedding dreams come true. She handled every intricate vendor detail and swiftly put together our entire weekend itinerary. We were simply told when we needed to be ready. The ability to be entirely hands-off was so comforting. I am beyond thankful that Whitney chose to work with us for our wedding day. We couldn’t have asked for a better group of people to manage and stand alongside us on our day."
