Owner and Lead Planner, Donna Phillips Wood,

began planning weddings in Dallas over ten years ago

while in law school at SMU.  Between studying for the bar

and navigating legal internships, she was hosting over-the-top

Christmas parties and planning baby showers for fellow students.

Even while working as an attorney, Donna continued to be drawn

to event planning, where her analytical skills married perfectly

with her innate creativity and discerning eye. 

In 2012, Donna left her legal career to launch Much Obliged Events, 

and has since also worked concurrently as a Venue Coordinator

in North Dallas, building strong professional relationships

with trusted event vendors throughout the metroplex.

This dual background gives Donna and her clients

a unique advantage in working with other venues

around the area.
