April B Lovejoy · Getting married on 08/01/2021
When I started planning my wedding, I knew there were going to be so many moving parts to consider... beyond the dress, guest count, location etc.. I knew that one of the most important decisions I was going to make would be WHO was going to be by our side to help our dream become a reality. At first, family didn't understand why I was so adamant about hiring someone to be there as a day of coordinator, especially since my location had someone who would be there day of. My mom knows I am hands on, and just thought I needed to make it work. LET ME TELL YOU.. Listening to my heart and just going forward with my desire to have Adam & Alex be there for us on our big day, was the BEST decision I made for our wedding. If it weren't for Unoaked Events, I can honestly say that our day would not have gone so smoothly and the little hiccups that happened, would have been disastrous had they not been there to literally save the day. My mother still talks about how happy she was that I didn't listen to her initial advice and that we had such amazing people there on our side!!! She's now sharing this advice with her friends who have children who are planning weddings.Sent on 03/25/2020
I didn't enter into this decision lightly. Years ago when I was first dreaming of marrying my husband, I saw that Unoaked Events were putting on wonderful events and assisting some friends with their special occasions, and I filed that into the back of my head for later. After we got engaged, before I got the dress, set the date etc, I reached out to Unoaked Events to speak to them about being my day of coordinator. My husband and I are both performers and very hands on, so we knew we wanted to take on as much as we could, but didn't want to overly worry about it leading up to the wedding and day of. We were having a Big Band, photographers, videographer, floral etc.. and had set our day up like a show with a lot of attention to detail. Having worked in entertainment years ago with Adam, I knew he was going to be the perfect person to help this day go off the way we had planned. Adam and Alex together are literally the DREAM TEAM. They were there for us and so patient when we were waiting on responses from our location, who was not nearly as pleasant to deal with...that's a different review.. and were there to help us get in contact with our vendors to orchestrate everything on that end. Unoaked Events ran our day with such class and dedication and made sure that not only were we taken care of, but our families, guests, vendors etc. They took over and stepped in where my location fell short and kept us on schedule, fixed our cake when the topper took tumble ( due to our cake vendor not adding extra spools like we discussed on multiple visits with our topper ).. and made sure that all of our special and personal touches for the ceremony/reception were packed up nicely for us to take home. They worked amazingly with our band and all of our vendors to make the day work no matter what came up, and were just such a comfort and joy. At the end of the night when we were driving off, we were so full of love and joy and just SO grateful for all they did to make that night the most perfect night for not only us, but our families and loved ones.
I truly cannot thank them enough. This review is a long time coming, and I couldn't honestly go on and on, minute by minute, of what all they did for us.. BUT the one thing I want people to take away is.. if you are even considering having some be there with you on your day, or doing full coordination, stop thinking and just DO IT! You won't regret it, I promise you. It will be the best decision you made for your wedding or event. Thank you Adam and Alex for everything! We will be coming to you again for our future events and will absolutely be sharing your name with any and all of our friends who are planning a wedding/shower/event in the future!
unoaked. Event Design & Production's reply:April! What an honor it was to be with you two on your wedding day! I will never forget all of the special musical touches you incorporated into your decor and theme. Such a special day that we will never forget! Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your story. Cheers to many more years of LOVE and JOY!

The PERFECT day because of Adam & Alex!
I was the maid of honor in my sister's wedding, and I can't imagine her wedding day without the help of Adam and Alex. They both took away any worry/stress. Adam handled the rehearsal and got 20-30 people (bridal party, family, singers) prepared in a very short amount of time. He took multiple boxes of decor, signage, and other items that needed to be set up on the day of and made us feel like everything was truly out of our hands from that point. Everything ran smoothly because of his help. On the day of, Alex was in the room where the bridal party waited and helped with all last minute needs we had. They were able to execute everything my sister and brother-in-law wanted, and we were truly able to enjoy every minute of the day without worry, knowing they had everything covered (even things we didn't think of). I cannot think more highly of both of them, and we are so thankful for their organization and amazing help!Sent on 03/28/2019
unoaked. Event Design & Production's reply:Thank you for all of the FUN Erin! You and your sister made us feel like family from the minute we met! The love your family shared Saturday night was so moving, inclusive, and inspiring. Thank YOU for sharing your family with us for one night!

Excellent wedding planner
I recently officiated my niece's wedding, and Adam was the wedding planner. He answered all my questions and made the experience a wonderful memory. My sister - the bride's mother - is very detail oriented. She was comfortable with Adam from the start and trusted him completely to make sure her only daughter's day was as special as she hoped it would be. My sister was able to relax and enjoy all the festivities without worrying that every detail was being taken care of. I would recommend Adam and his company to anyone to make their day a special one.Sent on 01/23/2020
unoaked. Event Design & Production's reply:Thank you for the kind notes! It was an honor to assist with the wedding and you did SUCH a wonderful job as the officiant! I hope you had as much fun as we did! Congrats on making the ceremony so special and perfect!

Like Hiring Life Long Friends
Hiring Adam and Alex of unoaked. Event Design & Production was one of the best investments my husband and I made for our wedding day. This couple makes a great team! Adam and Alex are incredibly professional, and such a pleasure!

Thankful for Unoaked!
Working with Adam to plan our big day was such a pleasure! Adam went above and beyond for us and made our wedding day perfect. From picking up our signs from the printer to taking all our wedding decor and favors to the venue day of. Adam was on top of every vendor deadline and ensured we never had to worry about one thing leading up to our wedding. I highly recommend Unoaked as you will have the best experience as we did! We miss Adam already!Sent on 01/25/2020

Wedding Planning Power Couple!
Adam and Alex of Unoaked went above and beyond my expectations of any wedding planner! Not only were they both such genuine and kindhearted individuals, they handled my crazy family like total bosses! I honestly hadn’t researched them before hiring because they were the sole recommendation of the event coordinator at my venue Five Crowns. I figured that since that used to be Adam’s job, he would know everything I needed to know about hosting my wedding there. Boy, did he....and more!! I hired Unoaked for month of coordination, but Adam was available and very responsive anytime I had a question in the year leading up to the big day. Once that 30 day mark hit, Adam and Alex jumped right into the planning, spearheading all the major communication between vendors. Anytime I started to doubt something or recognize a potential problem, Adam would immediately respond with “Don’t worry, we got this. We will make it work”. And they truly did! On the day of, I really didn’t even worry because I knew that the logistics and execution of everything I had prepped would be taken care of by Unoaked. The most stressful part of the day was having to walk down the isle by myself but Adam was right by my side those moments before keeping me calm and focused. They did a fantastic job on the decor of the reception space and made sure every detail I imagined was showcased perfectly. The true standout selling feature of Unoaked is really their ability to manage difficult situations that arose with ZERO hesitation (and me as the bride having zero clue about it!) We had wedding crashers taking pictures with our guests, ordering multiple drinks, and enjoying cocktail hour until Unoaked found out! They were escorted off the property immediately and Unoaked made sure I wasn’t charged for their drinks = Handled it like a boss! We had a fire, we had multiple broken glasses, we just had a lot of drunk people - and Adam or Alex would be right in the middle taking care of business with no time to waste! Multiple wedding guest came up to me throughout the night raving about both of them. People kept saying how “assertive” they were. Each guest had a different story about how either Adam or Alex had helped them with a problem, managed a difficult situation, or just made them feel so warm and welcomed! That to me is the sole reason you should hire them; to make sure your guests have the absolute best experience possible, while allowing you to also have the best experience possible! The right wedding coordinator is essential to make that happen and Unoaked is the team to do it!Sent on 10/06/2019
unoaked. Event Design & Production's reply:Bridget, reading this brought back SO many memories!!! Haha, what a wonderfully beautiful and perfect day it turned out to be! Such funny moments and great interactions with your friends and amazing family. I will definitely remember Rhino and all of the personalized details from your big day! Thank you for being so amazing to work with! I am so thrilled for you and Adam! Cheers to many years!

Adam was available for every single check in phone call and in person meeting. His attention to every detail was unmatched as we planned this event for several months. He handled the vendors and contracts with precision and handled our wedding day perfectly. If you need a wedding planner that is stress free and is ahead of what’s asked of him Adam is perfect. You’ll simply be able to enjoy your day and be worry free. Thank you Adam for all you do... Billy and Michelle KaneSent on 08/23/2019

All I have to say is WOW!! Not only were Adam and his team friendly and professional, but they executed the vision I had for my wedding beautifully! Not to mention, they helped make me feel so relaxed on a day that can usually be pretty stressful! They also came up with some great ideas for decor and helped me problem solve when I needed it! Overall, I would highly recommend hiring Unoaked for your next event! You will be glad you did! 💕Sent on 08/30/2019

Thank you Adam and Alex. We sincerely appreciate the way you treated us like family, not like customers, and took our daughter’s vision and made it a reality. Your expertise and attention to detail made our daughter’s and son-in-law‘s wedding a beautiful and stress free event.

Christine · Married on 07/20/2019
OBSESSED with Adam and Alex!
Our wedding venue required we hire a coordinator and since I had such a clear vision of what I wanted I was so nervous leaving it to someone else and to start the coordinator search. Once I came across Adam and Alex and emailed an inquiry (at 9:30 at night!) he immediately responded and we set up my first phone call right then and there. I felt my worries go away after that one phone call! Fast forward to sitting down with them over coffee to discuss our vision and ideas and we were sold!
Adam was available immediately any time I sent an email or text. He was so organized and prepared with any question, comment or concern I had! I thought I had it all together by the time Adam came on (as we hired Unoaked for our month-of) but he tied up all the loose ends I had no idea how to do. From vendor insurances, to all the last minute frustrations that come along with planning, vendor meals, timeline, you name it, Adam was on it!
Fast forward to the day of and I don't know what I would have done without Adam and Alex! They set up my venue to look EXACTLY how I envisioned in my head, handled all the little uncontrollable moments that happened during the wedding (like the venue losing power during cocktail hour)! He handled it like a champ and only later told me so I was informed. He kept me on schedule so we didn't miss sunset pics which were super important to us, packed us a meal to-go when we saw we didn't have time to eat much, brought me a drink just about anytime I turned around (truly like he was reading my mind.) And then when the night was over and we were saying our goodbyes to family and friends I blinked and everything was packaged up and ready for us to load in the car.
We couldn't be more thankful for Adam and Alex and would HIGHLY recommend them both. We had multiple family members and friends saying how sweet and helpful my planners were! I was so calm and relaxed on my wedding day and I think I can contribute some of that to knowing I was in such good hands with these two ❤️Sent on 08/08/2019
unoaked. Event Design & Production's reply:This day was PERFECT on SO many levels! Thank you for allowing Alex and I to celebrate with you! It's always a joy when we leave feeling like family! I'll never forget the 'high tide' and how much fun we had 'poppin bottles' at sunset! Love you both!

They Made it the Best Day Possible
From the first meeting with Adam and Alex, we knew we had made the best decision we could have ever made for our wedding day. They are polished, organized, experienced, fun, and just all-around a dream to work with. Wish we had another party to plan so we could work with them all over again! Our families, wedding party, and officiant kept commenting on how spectacular they were at keeping the event running smoothly. They made us feel like this was an event they would put on for their own friends or family. We could put our full trust and faith in them knowing that they always had our best interests at heart.Sent on 06/03/2019
When we started out on the wedding planning journey, there were a lot of corners we were looking to cut to try to keep expenses down. That included the day-of coordinator / planner element. But as the to-do lists grew, the vendor logistics got just a little bit more complicated, and so on, one piece of advice that we kept hearing from already-married friends were that the day is such a blur, you have to savor and enjoy every moment, and you don't want to be putting away tables and chairs when you could be spending it with the friends and family who are there to see you. They were SO right. Weddings are expensive. But there's no point in spending the money at all if you can't even enjoy the day. And unoaked was so willing to work with us in putting together a package that made sense for us - cutting things we didn't really need and adding things where we did.
I never had to check a watch or a phone. I didn't have to tell vendors where to go, what to do, how I wanted it to be. I didn't have to put extra thought into being at a particular place at a particular time - and it was a great relaxing feeling having someone who could just get all the right people to all the right places when they needed to be there for speeches, photos, and so on. I didn't have to stress out about getting tables set-up before guests started arriving. I didn't even really see the tear-down happening and decor being organized back into boxes as we were out on the dance floor. Everything was gorgeous when we arrived and put away and packed up when we were ready to leave.
Unoaked was party planners + expert designers + ninjas + guardian angels all wrapped up in one. And that's a pretty powerful combination to make any day incredible and... MEMORABLE.
unoaked. Event Design & Production's reply:Emily! Thank you and Austin for having us as a part of your wedding celebration. The weather was PERFECT and the day was so BEAUTIFUL. It was such a joy to see you both dancing and enjoying the evening with your awesome friends! I am so happy to now call you MY friends! Thank you for trusting us and I look forward to many more beer "meetings" in the future!

I cannot say enough about Adam and Alex. They are a true dream team! I keep telling everyone that our day went absolutely flawlessly, and that was in huge part to Adam and Alex's organization and diligence. Every detail was in place, and we did not have to think about one thing. Adam and Alex are so kind, personable, and effective! They took every last minute worry out of our minds.

Couldn't have asked for better people to work with!
Unoaked Events was referred to us by our venue event manager who is also a friend of mine. We didn't even know what a wedding coordinator was but we are so happy that we hired Unoaked for the job. Adam and Alex worked with us from day 1 to make sure we created the wedding day we imagined. They had so many ideas and suggestions during the planning and created and managed so many great tools to not only keep the day and our vendors organized but to keep me organized. There are so many things to think about when planning a wedding and there's no doubt that Unoaked helped make the process more efficient, organized, easy, and ultimately really fun. Adam and Alex are beyond sweet, understanding, and have a very good way of keeping things in order while managing a very stressful month of planning, not to mention the actual wedding day! They were everywhere on the big day and were so kind to everyone: the bridal party, our guests, our parents, and all the other vendors. They somehow managed to make everything look beautiful while making sure we were on schedule and everyone was where they needed to be when they were supposed to be there. Now that I've experienced a wedding, that is no easy task! They truly made our day special not only because they made it easy and stress-free for me but because they are just wonderful people to have around. We could not be happier with the way our wedding turned out, the day absolutely exceeded our expectations and we have Unoaked to thank for that. We adore them and highly recommend them as wedding coordinators!Sent on 12/08/2018

If I could give more stars, I would. From my first meeting with Adam and Alex, they paid attention to every detail, and were able to quickly adapt my vague wedding vision to a detailed, comprehensive plan. They were always one step ahead of me, and often knew what I needed before I could even ask. The planning was seamless, they kept me on track with a meticulous timeline and detailed itinerary, and thanks to them, I always knew what was happening when. They went above and beyond to make the day special, from their thorough planning and organization to thoughtful creativity, I didn't have an opportunity to become stressed or worry about plans, vendors, timelines or anything--they let nothing fall through the cracks! All my guests wondered how I planned my California wedding living in Texas, but for me, it was easy because Adam and Alex took care of everything.Sent on 09/25/2018

Carol · Married on 09/16/2018
Hiring Adam & Alex to coordinate my daughter's park/backyard wedding was the very best decision EVER! We would not have survived without them. Adam ran point on the planning -- from vendor recommendations, to site layout, to prodding and encouraging emails, he kept the process on track and moving forward. Neither my daughter nor I are party planners, so having Adam's expertise and encouragement at every turn was invaluable. Alex joined him the day-of to complete our DIY set-up, including putting flowers in vases, fluffing tulle, placing photos, adding lights to the spa, etc. They greeted and managed vendors, kept us on top of the timeline, and were the last to leave after clean-up. The wedding and reception were seamless. Not one detail we envisioned was missed, and I actually got to enjoy the party, knowing they were in charge. I am so, so glad to have had them on our team!! I appreciate everything they did for us. Several of our guests commented how nice, helpful, and organized they were. You guys are THE BEST!Sent on 10/08/2018

Janet · Married on 09/15/2018
Adam and Alex are amazing! The planning up to the wedding went very smoothly for us. Adam would narrow it down to 3 options for a vendor and we would go from there. Each decision seemed to make itself by the end of the process and Adam was definitely a critical part to making it so easy. The timeline was made transparent and clearly communicated frequently. Our wedding ceremony was at a park and the reception in my parents' backyard. Each of these presented their own unique challenges. He was fantastic at taking over some communication when I felt myself turning into bridezilla. He was amazing at calming Mom's nerves and being a wonderful liaison when we had differing opinions. The wedding day went more perfectly than I could have imagined! The ceremony was gorgeous and smooth as can be with Adam corralling everyone into the right spots and time! Alex set up the reception beautifully! He turned the backyard into a magical paradise! Adam helped calm me down after getting car sick and made sure I took care of myself first. Adam was excellent at modifying the plans on the spot so that I didn't have to cut the cake that would have made me nauseous, yet everyone enjoyed cake and s'mores and didn't notice anything was amiss! I was able to have everything I wanted because these guys were willing and able to pull it all together for us! Along with being professional experts at what they do, they are incredibly kind people and we look forward to continuing our friendship with them.Sent on 10/03/2018
