Dorothea is a dream maker!!
I literally can’t articulate in words how grateful I am for Dorothea, and Kamea Events.Sent on 10/12/2019
I live in New York but my then boyfriend and I both grew up in Oregon, and wanted to get married in a place that would feel familiar to us and our (very different) families. We decided on a beautiful little beach town on the Oregon coast and a family-only, micro-wedding style celebration!
My husband and I definitely took the road less traveled in getting to this day.... and after a decade together - we knew we wanted it to be personal and meaningful, with every detail curated and considered.....but we really had no idea where to start needed help on the ground.
I think I actually started by googling something like: ‘best+oregon+coast+elopement-wedding-planner’. I found Dorothea by tracing back one of the images in my moodboard back to her website. I spoke to several others, but I loved her work and we knew Dorothea was our first choice after the first conversation with her.
We partnered with her on planning, decor/styling, and day-of coordination for a 15 person wedding.
The biggest aha moment for me was when we kicked off planning and Dorothea gave us the advice to first focus on what she called the ‘creative contributors’ of the day ie. decor/styling, photographer and florist.
Knowing that she would be in charge of decor and styling, I felt completely confident in her taste level, her talent, and her ability to set the aesthetic tone of the day.
She presented her recos on other creative vendors she thought might be a good fit. With careful thought and consideration and TONS of advice from Dorothea on how to even evaluate different vendors, we chose @clarkdmiller as our wonderful photographer, and Alisha at @fortheloveoffloral as our amazing florist.
Leading up to the wedding she was incredible - laying out the path forward in a way that felt totally manageable, and never losing patience when I got overwhelmed anyway and asked the same questions over and over. She was attentive and supportive and organized and creative.
Dorothea is an incredible artist and I knew I couldn’t be in better hands. At that point I had such a deep understanding of what each vendor was capable of - so the thought of them all collaborating was super exciting. The brief for the decor was simple “I know whatever you do will be beautiful - surprise me!” And oh boy, am I glad I did - she went beyond what I ever could’ve imagined!!!
The day of:
Dorothea and the team arrived midday and my knee-jerk reaction was to get everyone acquainted with the space and introduce everyone to the family - but she calmly took control immediately, and kindly suggested I “have another mimosa, focus on relaxing, and enjoy get ready!” She was a dream. I must have hugged her a million times that day.
Every single minute of the day was carefully coordinated and Dorothea seamlessly integrated into our family as if she’d become a part of it... it never felt rushed, awkward or invasive...
Dorothea is a true professional as well as a lovely person with so much grace. She built the blue print for a dream I never even knew I had, and assembled the team that skillfully brought to life what was unequivocally the most magical day of our lives. It captured exactly who we are and reflected the warmth of our families coming together.
I still well up with tears of joy just thinking about all of it now...... such an absolutely perfect day in every way.

Our best day ever - thanks to Dorotheea & Kamea!
We had the privilege of working with Dorotheea at Kamea Events for our wedding on Sept 14, 2019. We initially landed on Kamea Events via Instagram, we loved her style/aesthetic and knew that she was the perfect fit for our vision, and by chance had availability!Sent on 09/23/2019
We booked Dorotheea for full planning, and day-of coordination services, and gave her total creative control.
Our wedding date was extra special because it was also our daughter's first birthday - so we wanted to be sure to incorporate her, and this first milestone in our plans for the day.
Dorotheea more than exceeded our expectations, and throughout the whole process we were free from worry and stress as we knew we were in good hands.
From the bigger rentals and logistics, all the way down to the smallest detail, everything was absolutely perfect. Day-of, I never wanted for a thing, because Dorotheea had literally everything covered. My only wish is that we could do it all over again, and slow down to take in all the beautiful things she created - from the tablescapes to the outdoor "living room" areas, the whole day was a dream.
Always hire a wedding planner, and always look for Kamea's availability first. Their services are more than worth the investment, and though I don't plan on having another wedding (haha!) I would hire Dorotheea again in a heartbeat!
We can't thank you enough!
All the best,
Jordan, Parker and Adley Berberet
