Hi I’m Whitley, Founder and Lead Planner at Eastwood Events. I established the company in 2016 and am so thrilled to be apart of couple's special days. I’ve always had the drive and desire to own my own business but couldn’t seem to find something that fit the logistic side of things and creativity into one career. In 2014, I graduated with my Associates in Business. Months after graduating I helped decorate and set up my cousin’s wedding at Stepping Stones Garden and had an “ah ha” moment. Growing up watching the movie “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 that Eastwood Events was created and I'm so thrilled to be stepping into my fourth wedding season.
Q + A
Q:What do you do in your free time?
A: I like to spend my time in the great outdoors hiking. My absolute favorite hike thus far was Mt. St. Helens!
Q:What’s your favorite part of a wedding?
A: That quiet emotional moment, as guests are seated, and bridal party is in place right before the Bride walks down the aisle. Such a special moment to be apart of!
Q:How did you come up with the name "Eastwood Events"?
A: My last name is dutch, "Osterhout". In dutch "Oster" means East and "hout" means Wood. Eastwood is also a family business name, so it holds a lot of meaning with it, and I like to think it has a nice ring!
