Meet Danielle Swindle,
Lead designer + Planner





It all started when…

My late uncle (I know, what a way to start this off) and I planned our first family birthday party when I was around 8. That was the moment I found my love of party planning. The details that go into party planning were (and totally still are!) so exciting to me. Then, when I was asked to plan my aunts wedding (which is up on the blog!) that was it. I was hooked. Weddings are the biggest party ever.

Owning my own planning company was a pipe dream for so long. Though I worked under an amazing florist/coordinator, I knew that one day I would have to make that leap and go out on my own. They say when it’s time, you’ll feel it. I remember the day I felt that stirring in my heart – that’s when Oakwood Lace + Co. was born.

Details are my favorite. They all come together to create an incredible picture, and I love having that moment with the bride right before I open the door for their send off when I know I got it just right – she got the day of her dreams. It’s the most rewarding feeling ever. 

About me…I live in my hometown of Athens, Georgia (Go Dawgs!) with my handsome hubby Josh, super chubby but adorable cat Lilly, and most all of my “co” – the people who help make Oakwood Lace what it is. If I’m not working on planning, designing, or running around, you can find me at home knitting with a cup of coffee (though let’s be honest – when am I not with a cup of coffee?). I can’t wait to be part of your day!

Happy planning!
