Skagit County Wedding Planning

Serving Skagit County Wedding Venues and Lairmont Manor in Wedding Coordination Services

Hi, I’m Whitley! Founder and Lead Planner of Eastwood Events. The company was established in 2016 and I’m so thrilled to be a part of countless couple’s special days!

Being a third generation entrepreneur, I’ve always had the drive and desire to own a business. I just couldn’t seem to find something that fit the logistic side and creativity into one career.

In 2014, I graduated with my Associates in Business planning to take the path of bookkeeping, a “practical” job for living in a small town I told myself. I quickly realized I was more excited about decorating my desk than being at it.

Shortly after, my cousin got married. The morning of her wedding they were in need of more help and my mom and I rushed there. With little direction and many hands ready to help, I somehow became the point-of-contact. That day at Stepping Stones Garden I had an “ah ha” moment. Growing up watching The Wedding Planner it was one of those movies that seemed like a dream.

Beginning of 2016, I ended a yearlong Wedding Planner Internship and transitioned into a Wedding Planner Certification Program. Shortly after, I met Taryn of Skagit Valley Wedding Rentals and was hired on as the “Lead Designer” which is still my “Day Job” to this day. She was a true driving force to pursue my passions and 6 months later Eastwood Events was created.

"Whitley was such a gem to find! She worked so hard to make sure our special day was perfect !! Leading up to the wedding, she was so great about making sure every little detail was worked out. She offered recommendations and advice when needed and worked amazingly with our other vendors. She is organized, knowledgeable, hard working, so sweet, efficient and has an amazing personality. She is easy to work with and truly cares about getting to know the people she is working with. The day went off without a hitch, in large part because of Whitley! She made sure everything was perfect and it was so comforting knowing I had her there! I would absolutely recommend Whitley. She is professional, calming and an absolute joy to work with! Thank you, Whitley !!

Eastwood Events was so perfect that I never worried about where to be or what to do, because they had everything covered. Instead of undue stress, I was able to enjoy my wedding day to it's fullest, and Whitley and her team were a huge part in that. We love Eastwood Events and you should not hesitate to book them, they will completely exceed your expectations. Thank you for everything - your compassion, knowledge and heart were present throughout our day and we couldn't have asked anyone better to help make our day magical."
