Sally and her team went above and beyond for my wedding!! I first contacted Sally in a panic, as I hired another Raleigh wedding planner for the first 4 months of my engagement. The previous wedding planner took my deposit and disconnected her phone. Needless to say, Sally swooped in and saved the day. She called me back within the hour of my panicked phone call and booked our wedding.
Sally made my childhood dreams come true. I always wanted to get married at my childhood home/ farm. My father, who was initially skeptical of ANY wedding planner, was beyond delighted with Sally and her team. In his words, “Sally earned and is worth EVERY penny.”
Sally not only stayed in close contact with me, but with my groom, vendors, and bridesmaids. My husband and I were over the moon with how beautiful our wedding day was, as well as how much Sally did in preparation for our wedding.

The best in Raleigh area
Sally is wonderful at what she does and I am positive that my wedding would not have been nearly as stress-free and beautiful without her. Although there were a few hiccups on the day of, she adapted and made things so perfect that I didn't even notice. In fact, some of her last minute changes may have been more beautiful than what I had planned myself. We did a lot of DIY elements, and she was super flexible about these and with helping clear then out of the venue afterwards. On the day of, she was expertly behind the scenes making things run smoothly, but was amazing at staying out of the way. She is so friendly, so talented, and so organized. The best money I spent was hiring her!

Here's your key to the perfect wedding! Promise!
Do not hesitate to ask Kathy Swope (of Sally Oakley Weddings and Events) to help with your wedding/wedding reception! She is absolutely the most creative, detail-oriented, attentive, accessible, and most CALMING person you could possibly find to assist with your wedding/reception planning and day of coordination. And Kathy is so flexible! As her clients, we were able to do some planning on our own and count on Kathy to polish up our efforts. At other times, we could count on Kathy to take care of planning specifics about which we were less informed (or frankly, those that were just less fun to plan!). Kathy left no stone unturned. My daughter and I found ourselves wondering what all the wedding planning hubbub is all about! Everything seemed absolutely effortless. Even the day of the wedding was relaxing, calm and enjoyable. Kathy truly took care of everything! Throwing a wedding was a piece of cake with Kathy. And...the wedding was absolutely perfect!
Gorgeous events, professional and easy to work with. Sally Oakley events has it all going on! We look forward to our next event together! The pros, working with the pros is a win-win!
I have worked with Sally and her team on a number of occasions and each event has run very smoothly indeed. Sally is highly professional and keeps things on track whilst being a real pleasure to work with. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding planner.
I've worked with sally for many years. She is extremely organized and professional. If she is planning your wedding you really are going to have a special event. With close attention to detail and great organization skills your wedding couldn't be in safer hands.
