Meet Wilkinson Rhodes
Who We Are
We're event storytellers.
We’re an event design and production studio composed of artisans, idea makers, and logistic gurus.
Our philosophy at Wilkinson Rhodes is based on the belief that every event truly tells a story -- whether it represents the hopes and dreams of a couple, the objectives of a corporate client, or a vision of the ultimate social soiree. We infuse this story into every aspect of an event.
We understand how important it is to have the right team, and we believe in listening, collaborating, and providing quality service to build long-standing partnerships.
Founder & Creative Director
Billinda Wilkinson’s experience and knowledge of art, history, design, travel, and theater has made Wilkinson Rhodes one of the premier event planning and production companies in the Southwest.
Her client base includes Buena
Vista Pictures, Walt Disney, Johnson & Johnson, AT&T and UPS. The scope of her resume includes wondrous weddings, grand galas, adorable bar/bat mitzvahs and dazzling
debutante parties for her prestigious clientele.
In 2003, Wilkinson began the Wilkinson-Rhodes event company. In only one short year, Billinda began party planning for the stars when Buena Vista Pictures and Disney accepted her proposal for the premier party for the movie, “The Alamo.” Over the years, Billinda has also gone on to design and execute numerous events across the country and abroad.
She also believes in giving back to
the event industry through her volunteer efforts as a past president of ILEA San Antonio, support of The Search Foundation, and work with Event Pro’s Take Action.
Matthew Gonzales, CSEP
Matthew Gonzales CSEP, also known as the “List Maker” is a wizard with logistics, décor, and spatial planning.
Having a background in multiple disciplines of the hospitality industry gives him great insight into helping clients with details behind the scenes and forethought while in the melee of an event; like a maestro waving his baton across an orchestra.

In his spare time, he patio gardens, travels, bakes, and cooks. His love of fine dining has taken him to points across the US in search of the perfect hot dog! Woof!
