Shine Events and its staff were professional, thoughtful, complete, easy to work with AND they did our flowers which were gorgeous. They coordinated everything and so our wedding was flawless. I highly recommend Shine!Sent on 08/19/2019

Leann was wonderful! She was our well-chosen wedding planner for my daughter's Central Oregon wedding in September. Leann walked us through the process, recommended and coordinated vendors, managed timelines, gave updates and made sure that we made decisions on time, was there for both virtual and in person meetings, and so much more. Bottom line: She handled the big things, attended to all the details, calmed us when we got crazy, and made the big day the very best day. Could not have done it without her.Sent on 04/24/2020

Could not recommend ENOUGH!
We started planning our dream wedding in January of 2019, and were quickly overwhelmed by the balancing act of navigating so many vendors and details! While we had been able to take on the early stages of planning ourselves, we wanted to bring in a professional for at least the day-of, so we could enjoy every moment of the wedding with our loved ones, stress-free. We sought out Leann's services in July of that year, with the intention that she would be our "Day-Of" coordinator for our July 2020 wedding. Fast forward to March 2020, and everything changed. To say that Leann has gone above and beyond would be an understatement. While a certain level of stress can be expected with wedding planning, the events of the past year have been, and continue to be extraordinarily difficult. Leann has been with us every step of the way during this unprecedented chapter. When we made the decision to postpone, Leann handled every detail, with professionalism and proficiency. She contacted every vendor, including our venue, and reported back to us so we could make informed decisions, without the overwhelm of the back and forth correspondence. This speaks to her organized, detail-oriented nature, and creative approach to problem solving that we have experienced. To every meeting, Leann has brought savvy expertise, guidance, compassion, empathy, and most valued, a sense of calm. She validates every feeling, answers every question, and truly understands our needs. My fiancé and I have now made the difficult decision to postpone our wedding again. While this has resulted in personal feelings of disappointment and heartache, Leann has never let us lose sight of our "why". She is there to remind us that our day WILL happen, and WILL be filled with the joy, excitement, and fun that we have always envisioned. And, once again, she has taken care of every behind the scenes detail. Throughout this process - Leann has taken the time to get to know my fiancé and I, and our families, and leads every meeting with our wishes, hopes, and dreams at the center. She has been both a listening ear and a steadfast advocate. Leann truly cares about her clients, and you feel this every step of the way. We truly cannot recommend Leann and her team at Shine Events enough - this was by far the best decision we could have made (aside from the day that we FINALLY get to say “I Do” 😊).Sent on 03/14/2021

Erica at Shine Events was wonderful to work with. At a recent wedding she had an uphill battle of fierce winds, unruly smoke, and a private property that had zero amenities. She did a fantastic job at making a perfect event for this couple. They never knew the struggles and were at ease the entire time. Erica was calm, cool and so easy to work with. She bent over backwards for the couple and really made a glowing memory for them.
Leann was a pleasure working with! Very well organized and pays attention to detail. She made sure we always knew what was about to happen, which is very important as a photographer and made our jobs that much easier!
We have worked closely with Leann many times as she has been the wedding and event coordinator to our brides and clients over the last few years. She always has a smile and keeps the event on track and looking spectacular for her clients and their guests. We recommend Shine for your wedding coordination needs!
