TL;DR: Our wedding would not have happened without the dedication, expertise and LOVE of Shauna and her J29 team. If you want to feel confident going into the biggest day of your life, and then have the best day of your life, hire them.

We worked with Shauna for more than a year planning our dream wedding in the Columbia River Gorge. Her recommended vendors and style guidance was top notch, translating our vision into a reality and helping us think through things we never would have on our own.

But just 6 days before our wedding, the Eagle Creek Wildfire began. Three days later, our venue and the town of Hood River where all of our 100+ guests were going to stay, was at risk of evacuation. Shauna, while juggling two other weddings, mobilized not only her team at J29 Events, but her incredible network of vendors to spin up multiple backup options in case we needed to move everything.

Unfortunately, due to hazardous smoke conditions, we did have to relocate—but fortunately, our backup, lined up and executed by Shauna and her team, ended up being the most incredible wedding ever. In less than one week, she moved heaven and earth to recreate what we had planned for more than a year in a totally different location. Her logistical know-how, reputation, and sheer determination turned a nightmare into an absolute fairy tale. But don't take our word for it: ALL of our guests have said it's the best wedding they've ever been to... Which is no surprise—it was a J29 wedding.

THANK YOU, Shauna and Michelle!

Disorganized and unprofessional. I flew into Portland to meet with my planner Nicole and she sent me an e-mail 30 minutes prior to the meeting saying she was sick. This was after a series of missed e-mails and missed deadlines. I asked for my deposit back and the owner refunded me my deposit minus $225 for work done. Work done= a list of 6 venues and a design board. SIGH. Stay away if your wedding is important to you!

I worked with Michelle to plan my early July wedding. I was *a bit* eager and had a bunch of vision board ideas and SO MUCH decor. Michelle styled everything so effortlessly and beautifully - it was so much more than we could have imagined! she was super patient with me the whole time and gave me tons of really great pointers that helped me really clarify the vibe and look we were going for.

Professional Network & Endorsements

Shauna and her team of planners at J29 are top notch professionals. I worked with them at a wedding this past summer. They were super organized and wonderful partners for us as vendors. We felt supported and kept up to date on anything and everything we needed to know for our beloved couple. I can't wait to work with J29 again. :)

It is always a great pleasure working with Shauna at J29 Events. She is very professional, organized and fun! Her attention to detail at any events (and especially weddings) makes the planning process and the day-of execution a breeze. We highly recommend J29 Events for anyone that is serious about creating the wedding that they deserve.

Working with Shauna and her team is always a pleasure!

Shauna is so much fun to work with! She has a great eye for putting together beautiful spaces and scenes within events. We are excited to work with her more on upcoming weddings and highly recommend her!
