Kind Words

“As if Willow & Oak’s Old-World European aesthetic isn’t enough to make you fall in love with them, they are the sweetest, most talented team. Their romantic style truly reflects their immense passion for traveling the world and the timeless love stories they have the opportunity to tell. Willow & Oak’s design process is filled with intention and meaning, and you can trust that they will put their whole heart into creating a day straight from a dream.” 

Hannah Alyssa, Photographer

"As a cake designer I love the opportunity to collaborate with other industry colleagues. From the very first email and mood board that Alexis sent me I knew I was in good company. Alexis is a kind, passionate, organised and detail oriented event planner. The care and attention to detail is evident in her work and I for one cannot wait to work with Alexis and team again :) If you are planning your wedding, look no further than Willow and Oak Events!"

“Our wedding day was unbelievably beautiful, stress-free, fun and filled with love. We have Willow & Oak to thank for all of these things. The team is so passionate about their work, they radiate light and love that touched our hearts. They listened to us, respected us, helped us iron out the finer details and sincerely cared about our wedding day. I don’t know if I’ve ever felt more taken care of in any type of business endeavor than when I worked with Willow & Oak as our planners. My husband and I want to relive the experience with Willow & Oak and our wedding day over and over again because it was so amazing. We can’t thank them enough for what they created specifically for us.”

"As a wedding photographer, I’ve had the opportunity to work with Alexis and Ben several times in the UK, and I can’t think of planners more warm-hearted and passionate about what they do. They are truly gifted with a wealth of knowledge about the industry throughout the UK, France, Italy, and Europe. They are organized, responsive, detail-oriented, and hospitable—crucial qualities in wedding planners. They are also gifted artists, able to create exquisite designs unique to each couple they work with. Above all, working with Willow & Oak feels like working with family. They are clearly passionate about their work and care deeply about serving others. It’s evident in all they do. So look no further for your destination wedding planners in the UK, France, and beyond. You’ll be well taken care of!"

I cannot say enough wonderful things about the team at Willow + Oak Events. I've had the pleasure to work alongside side them on a quite a few occasions and when I say- every single detail is immaculate, that is an understatement. From the very start of the design process, their design proposal is unlike most. The intricacy and attention to detail, the clients, their story, everything is top notch and so aesthetically stunning. I've seen ideas go from concept to reality and it is mind blowing how that much perfection right in front of me. Haley is one of the SWEETEST individuals who is clearly consumed with passion when it comes to what she does. I seriously cannot recommend enough. x

"I'm a calligrapher and working with Willow & Oak Events was a wonderful experience. Alexis and Haley are so sweet and on top of their game. I have a specific aesthetic for my brand and so I'm picky about who I work with. They took care of everything and I never felt confused or lost throughout the whole process. Excellent communication and very professional. Highly Recommend!"

I absolutely loved working with Willow & Oak on a bridal editorial which went on to be featured on Ruffled and Martha Stewart Weddings. From the incredible concept, to the stunning design and creative execution, Alexis & Ben were a dream to work with. They made it possible for me to focus purely on being creative, taking care of all the logistics and providing me with enough detail to tell our couple's story. I am so glad we met two years ago and I really do hope we can work together again. If you book Willow & Oak to design & plan your wedding, you will be in for a real treat!

“I reached out to Haley because I heard from other industry friends that she was a rising star in the Charleston wedding world. From the very start, Haley exceeded my expectations in every way. Honestly, I was shocked at her level of preparedness and her eye for design and styling. She put together the most romantic storylines for our shoots and created mood boards of colors and textures. All of it was presented in the most elegant way, with Haley narrating every little detail to me with the care and heart of someone who truly has a passion for her pursuits. It's hard for me to express just how impressed I was with her work, so please feel free to reach out to me so I can brag about her!” 

Brian D Smith, fine art photographer

“Haley and her team were able to make what I expected might be a long and arduous planning process into an exciting and smooth creative project. They listened to what we wanted, refined those items into a coherent plan, and then added dozens of other tiny (yet giant) details that resulted in an amazing day that I will remember fondly for the rest of my life. Haley went above and beyond my expectations to deliver a beautiful suite of thoughtfully-designed and curated elements. She also provided an unprecedented level of personal service and attention. I would not hesitate to recommend this team to anyone seeking bespoke matrimonial planning. They have my eternal thanks and admiration for making our day beyond special, and especially for making my wife very, very happy!” 

Michael, Groom

What stood out most about Haley was her planning approach and design knowledge. She could not only execute the plan, but she could incorporate the bride and groom’s story with an incredible eye for weaving together design and detail into the process.

Our daughter and her fiancé were deployed in the service and could only participate occasionally in the planning remotely through telephone and email. Then COVID-19 confusion and constantly changing restrictions hit halfway through the process. Haley took it all in stride. She worked with us to ensure the right vendors were brought into the planning process. She interviewed the bride and groom remotely and incorporated their story into her initial design. She listened to our design preferences, made suggestions where appropriate; all to ensure we had the best of everything within our budget. She was exceptional at keeping an eye on our budget while creating a beautifully designed wedding.

 This attention to detail was evident throughout the process. Needless to say, the wedding was spectacular. It was beautifully designed and flawlessly executed. Bottom line, if you are getting married and want a wedding perfectly planned, designed and executed, contact Willow and Oak Events.
