Industrious Party

So today we’re going to highlight our vendor open house at the new office! We could not have been more excited to have some of our amazing vendor friends come see our new space. Unfortunately, the weather was not on our side as #Jonas was brewing and threatening snow. However, for those vendors that made it THANK YOU and those who couldn’t we missed you terribly! Side note: For those who Siri lead astray we apologize- we are working to update everyone with accurate directions to the office.

Now, before we show off the photos we have to thank Rocky Top Catering for the spread. Seriously y’all they outdid themselves with the food. They always aim to please and created yummy and creative hor d’oeuvres. Also, to the beautiful ladies of Tre Bella Florist for the stunning arrangements, thank you, they accented our space perfectly. To Lucettegrace,  thank you for the croquembouche that was almost to good to eat. Another huge thank you goes to Mikkel Paige for being the unofficial photog of the evening. Your photos are stunning and we are so grateful to have them to capture the party in all its glory.

Lastly, thank you again to our vendors and friends who braved the storm and helped us celebrate this awesome milestone. We look forward to working with you all this year!

A Year in Review…

This past year has been a whirlwind in the best way possible. Our business has grown exponentially and we cannot thank our clients and vendor friends enough for the success that we have seen. We brought on our newest team member Kathy White Swope, and she has exceeded expectations at every turn. Seriously, she is amazing and if you haven’t yet met her you need to.


We opened our first office in downtown Raleigh at 555 Fayetteville Street- we would love for you to stop by! It’s the perfect space for us to continue to grow and to meet our wonderful clients.


We surpassed our goal for the number of weddings we wanted to produce and coordinate for 2015. We are continuing to book for 2016 and also booking for 2017!


We became a Little Black Book member of Style Me Pretty this past year. We joined the elite “book” highlighting  best of the best in the wedding industry. We are pleased to announce that we are still a member in 2016 and hope to have our weddings featured soon. Be sure to check out our vendor page by clicking the link above!


And lastly, at the beginning of the year we launched our brand- spanking – new website. It was a labor of love  for sure and something we would have never accomplished without the talent and expertise of Love Inspired.

So many amazing things happened in 2015 we were a little apprehensive that 2016 could ever compare! However, our business continues to flourish and grow as we meet more and more lovely couples needing our expertise. Our dates are filling up fast for 2016 and we are booking for 2017 as well. So what are you waiting for! Give us a call, send us an email or shoot us a text and get on our schedule fast. 2016 we are ready for you, so let’s make it even better!

Little Black Book

Well friends, this has been one exciting year at Sally Oakley Weddings & Events. We have literally had to pinch ourselves. So we were super excited when we got word that we were the newest members of Style Me Pretty‘s Little Black Book. You can now find us by searching under the vendor guide (North Carolina, then region, then Event Planning) or by clicking right here. Not familiar with the Little Black Book? Well, Style Me Pretty‘s Little Black Book is a highly edited collection of wedding service providers from mom & pop boutiques to a-listers. Bottom line, these vendors are the best of the best and we are thrilled to be among the elite!

And we believe Style Me Pretty said it best,

A talented event planner is a gift you give yourself…and then wonder how you ever thought you could manage without one. Our event planning members have years of coordination expertise under their belts, the right connections, and the experience to bring all your lovely details together. No matter what your dream wedding entails, they will exceed your expectations.

Thank you for the team at Style Me Pretty and to all our brides and grooms- past and present we hope to exceed your expectations and create the one- of- a kind event of your dreams. So, let’s get started!
