I couldn't have lucked out with a better wedding planner than Becky Lampp of Spanish Oak Events. She is simply the best! My husband and I are from Washington, DC, so this was a destination wedding for us. We'd interviewed a few other planners before deciding on Spanish Oak Events and Becky was the only one who was excited about bringing our OWN vision to life, and she did so with warmth, enthusiasm, and a positive spirit! From the start, she worked within our budget and brought us excellent vendor choices to see our grandiose Gatsby themed wedding through! She went above and beyond for us, even lending an ear to get us past some of those stressful moments that come with wedding planning. <3 From start to finish, she kept us informed and on track every step of the way. She has developed great relationships with top vendors in NOLA, which made the process even that much more enjoyable. She even had a ride waiting for my mother and I when we visited for my tasting. The day of the wedding, we ran into a few logistical hiccups because it rained, but Becky handled everything with ease. We never saw her flustered! :) And, everyone is still raving about how wonderful everything turned out; Becky is pretty much part of the family now! We love Becky and Spanish Oak Events because she listens, she's professional, and she thinks outside the box. Whatever she needs to do to make YOUR vision come to life, she will do. Go with Spanish Oak Events and you'll have the best experience you could ask for!

I wish I could give Becky a 10 out of 5 stars. She and her team were absolutely incredible! My husband and I were both from out of town and this was a destination wedding, plus it was a complex multi-day Indian wedding so we had a lot going on and Becky handled everything with competence and a smile. No task was too big or too small. Although we hired her for weekend-of support, she got very involved about two months out to make sure she was completely familiar with all of our vendors and our schedule. She helped fill in the gaps in our schedule to ensure it was extremely detailed and helped us find additional vendors whom we had not yet booked. She was in contact with all vendors in the weeks leading up to the wedding and during the weekend-of to ensure everyone was aware of the schedule, last minute changes, etc. and this meant we didn't have to worry about our vendors at all and could just focus on celebrating with our family and friends. Many small things that were out of our control went wrong (as they always do) - examples include unusually cold weather in New Orleans during the weekend and the police not showing up for our 2nd line parade even though we had a permit, and she was did whatever it took to make sure none of these challenges posed a problem to us or our guests. We didn't even know about the police issue until after the wedding! She brought additional staff with her during the wedding day to make sure everything was as smooth as possible (and did not charge us extra for this extra help). She was extremely easy to talk to, always available, highly responsive and so pleasant! Lastly, she is also very reasonably priced, especially for how much she above and beyond she goes for every detail and every request. I know my mom (mother-of-the-bride) was extremely pleased as well!

I want to start off by saying Becky is phenomenal in her profession. If you are on the fence about hiring a wedding planner or even someone for day of, I’m advising you to do so! Becky was a miracle worker for my mom and I. Everything we asked of her, she came thru and accomplished it for us. She was truly a blessing to work with and I highly recommend her! Her personality is just the icing on the cake. She is always willing to go above and beyond for you to make your day special. Thank you Becky for making my day so smooth and stress free! Also for the countless meetings at the NOPSI listening to my mom and I’s vision come together! You were a joy to work with!

It was love at first call... We knew instantly from the first 5 minute call with Becky and Spanish Oak Events that she was our planner. Instantly, it was like we knew her forever, and we could trust her with the biggest day of our lives. We were a couple from NYC and was planning a wedding for over 100 guests all of which would be traveling to a city that most have never been. Though I have experience doing events in NYC, I was certainly a fish out of water in NOLA. We traveled to NOLA over a long weekend to meet Becky and plan our wedding together. We came in tow with my Italian Mother, dad, and sister (MOH) and all their opinions :). The moment we met Beck face to face she presented us with a welcome bag filled with itineraries for the weekend, macrons, and her confidence that she would be by our side the whole way through. In one weekend we saw over a dozen Venues, 2 cake tastings, 2 bands, a full catering tasting and two florists. She was indeed with us every step of the way. Each morning began with her and her smile in our hotel lobby, and each evening ended with her dropping us off there. She took the time to really get to know us, learn what our aesthetic was and offer suggestions and solutions to our vision we would not think of. By the end of the weekend we pretty much had our Wedding planned and cued up ready to go. The next year we would talk to Becky almost daily for informal check ins, but also formal weekly calls. When things got rough... which they always do when planning wedding let alone a destination wedding, she was there to represent us, but also calm us down when needed. Without a doubt Becky put her entire self into our wedding. We felt often we are her only clients, only surprised to learn we weren't when we saw her celebrating her other couples on Instagram :) . Becky was with us from our first call until the sparkler send off at the end or our wedding and beyond. My only regret is that I plan to get married only once and I won't be able to use her again for my next wedding. They say a wedding planner is the gift you give yourself when getting married, and those words could not be Truer. Becky was the gift that kept on giving. Though Becky is the face and muscle behind Spanish oak Events, her team are just as incredible and confident as she is. Spanish Oaks is not just our wedding planner they are our family!!!!!
