Best wedding coordinator

Carisa & team were great to work with! I had found adornment Events on the knot as a suggested vendor. I reached out to my venue to see if they had worked with them before, they had and had really great things to say about them! So i reached out to adornment and set up a video call. Carisa was great, she is very kind, patient and really seemed excited about what she does! Leading up to my wedding she was always very timely with her responses back & very helpful. She made me feel like I was the only bride she was working with, even though I know she was very busy! My wedding day went very smoothly, despite it raining and having to move the outdoor reception mostly indoors, Carisa and her team did a great job! I could not have done it without them, they made my day perfect!

Incredible Event Team in Portland Oregon!

When my daughter got engaged, my friends all advised me to hire a wedding planner. This, by the way, is the best advice ever! We checked our options in the Portland area and Carisa Smith of Adornment Events matched our criteria. Carisa came highly recommended from a longtime friend who had used Carisa extensively for events.

Carisa Smith and Adornment Events are fantastic! They helped us with the initial stages of the wedding planning, including a 75 person engagement party held in our home. Carisa Smith has invaluable connections to the best vendors. She is respected and well liked in the event community. She took our vision and executed it flawlessly from start to finish. Her team at Adornment Events are professionals who can take a plan and deliver it to the highest expectations.

As the type “A” Mom of a type “A” bride—Carisa mitigated the stress. The day of the wedding came and I could just enjoy the day. It was the perfect day. In fact, my daughter thanked me at the end of the night saying it was the “most perfect day”. It doesn’t get better than that.

There are so many good things that I could say about Adornment Events and Carisa Smith. I highly recommend them for your next event. You will not be disappointed.

Best Wedding Ever!

Carisa and her team at Adornment did an amazing job putting together our wedding! It was the most perfect day and so many of our guests named it the "best wedding ever"! She brought our vision to life - modern, chic & romantic. I appreciated Carisa working with me on all my ideas, changes and many many questions throughout the planning process. When the big day finally came, my expectations were exceeded. From start to finish the entire event was seamless. Each detail was so thought out and intentional, executed by an amazing vendor team, to create the ultimate wedding experience.

I highly recommend Adornment Events! Our wedding was everything we could have dreamed of and more.
