Hello, my name is Whitley and I’m the lead Designer here at Skagit Valley Wedding Rentals. While I have been working here for the last three years, my experience and passions for the wedding industry goes back further than that. I have always been able to see things for not what they are, but for what they could be. When I walk into a new venue or space, my mind immediately starts getting ideas of how it could be transformed. While I love all things wedding, my favorite type of weddings to design are ones with specific themes. I love hearing the whole vision my clients have for their events and finding the little details that create the look to bring everything together while maintaining what’s important to them.
Over the last few years, I have had the pleasure of being part of hundreds of weddings. After working with different wedding planners and venues in the Northwest, making the decision to become a wedding planner and opening Eastwood Events was the next logical step. Now I get to spend my days doing what I love, planning and designing weddings! I am looking forward to what this next year has in store for my business as well as here at Skagit Valley Wedding Rentals.
Hi, I’m Taryn, Owner of Skagit Valley Wedding Rentals. In 2009 my husband proposed to me at Rosario Beach here in the Northwest and the planning process began. At this time, I was Special Education Teacher, a career I loved and saw myself pursuing. During the planning process I found this new creative outlet, designing my wedding. Seven months later the wedding took place, and what a beautiful event it was. After our wedding, I realized how much I loved the whole process and started Skagit Valley Wedding Rentals that summer. A few years later, we had our first son. I realized I wanted to find a way to be more involved in his life and made the difficult decision to give up my teaching contract to stay home with him. It was the best decision I could have made. Here I am today, a mom of two young boys (Mason and Liam) finding the balance between running this thriving business, being the best domestic engineer I can be, and enjoying those special moments with my family. Every day I wake up and have to pinch myself. Is this really my life? I can’t believe that I get to spend my days playing with my children and helping people create beautiful and meaningful events. We are so blessed!
