  • Where do I begin with J29? From their detailed orientated minds, to their sweet personalities you cannot go wrong with hiring the J29 team for any event you may be throwing! I had the pleasure of working alongside the team while helping plan my sister’s wedding. The wedding was nothing short of incredible! The correspondence with the team leading up to the wedding, the walk through meetings we had, rehearsal practice and the wedding day were incredible, and we owe a lot of that to the J29 team. Thank you J29 for taking the pressure off our family to help make the wedding as perfect as it was! It was truly a pleasure to work alongside you guys, I hope that more opportunities present themselves so we are able to do it again. Cheers!

  • Planning a wedding to be held in a place I had never been, from across the country no less, felt daunting. That’s when I found j29. Shauna helped me throughout the whole process and she made everything so easy and she was a wonderful sounding board. Ema was there for us the day of and I would have been a terrible mess if not for her! I was able to spend the morning getting ready while Ema made sure everyone did their part and stayed on time, while reminding me to take care of myself too. These girls helped me create my dream and I could not have done it without them.

  • Shauna was incredible to work with. We decided to have a destination wedding, booking everything sight-unseen. Shauna put me at ease throughout the whole process and helped weigh-in and direct me while still allowing my aesthetic to come through. She made the entire wedding a cohesive experience which our guests are STILL raving about and in fact we have two couples who attended, request our vendor names because they enjoyed the wedding so much. It was the best experience and as someone in the event industry who handles events and different vendor personalities frequently, I do not give my endorsement lightly but Shauna and J29 Events have gone above and beyond & absolutely earned it.

  • Shauna/J29 Events made the first day of my forever with my husband so enchanting! She took what my husband and I wanted and brought it to another level. I didn't have to worry about anything! Shauna was great at communicating, organizing and made sure our wedding day had no bumps in the road! Our guests were beyond impressed with the detailing and how romantic the atmosphere was! I felt like I was right in the middle of my own fairy tale. The package we had fit us perfectly! I didn't want to have to be too involved and I trusted that Shauna would handle everything and she lived up to those expectations!

  • A fantastic experience, worth every penny. We always wondered what a day-of coordinator did -- well, we found out when we didn't have to do any of it! Ema rehearsed us, figured out how to assemble a chuppah, laid out all the decorations, marched us in successfully, and put everything away in the right boxes at the end. It was seamless. Later, her boss, Shauna, assisted me in dealing with a problem I had with the venue, resulting in a partial refund from the site.

  • My husband and I got married in Trinidad, CA on August 18th of this year. We booked Shauna for our day of wedding planner - but she was much more than that. We planned our wedding from out of state (in WA). I grew up in Northern California and my parents still live there, but Shauna was a huge guide to us even though we had family in the area. She helped us with all the details till the day of the wedding and was our SAVIOR on the day of. She kept everything on time for the ceremony and all the events of the reception. She made sure vendors were where they needed to be and on time. I think I told her 10+ times that I was so happy she was there on the day/night of the wedding. My husband nearly cut the tip of his finger off before the ceremony (she glued it up), my brother who was a groomsman ripped his pants 5 minutes before the wedding and she had everything needed to get us through the ceremony, and she even gave us her ring during the ceremony as our best man misplaced our rings.

  • Shauna and the team members at J29 Events are thoughtful, precise, and passionate. The idea of wedding planning was very overwhelming for us (My husband and I are major procrastinators and very unorganized), but Shauna was able to break up the massive process into small achievable steps. Having this structure completely changed our experienced from overwhelming and confusing to positive and exciting. Leading up the the wedding date, her structure allowed us to essentially have all tasks completed weeks before our wedding. Shauna was able to use her design expertise to create a design board that brought all of our various ideas into one cohesive vision. This then allowed us to begin finding the right vendors to bring that vision to life. Shauna's vast network of vendors and contacts was amazing and so crucial. She has contacts for each element of the planning process (venue, photography, catering, DJ, florals, videographer, signage, decor, etc) and because of that, we were able to c... Read more

  • I don't even have enough good things to say about J29. Shauna and her team go ABOVE and BEYOND to make sure your wedding planning process is perfect. Leading up to the big day, she listens to your ever need, crazy thought and idea. She is available all the time and is so supportive. She is so organized and stays on top of every detail. The day of your wedding, she will make sure nothing bothers you. She will handle crazy in laws, parents, friends and family members. She will track down alcohol when your caterer runs out in the middle of the wedding. She will even figure out how to serve ice cream sandwiches to your guest in a creative way when your caterer forgets to put them in a freezer :) She solved every problem without even letting me know so that my guests had a great time and I didn't have to leave the dance floor. Wedding planning is a stressful and consuming process. I was so lucky to have Shauna by my side every step of the way. I truly don't know what I would have done w... Read more

  • We worked with Shauna for our elopement and I can't say enough how grateful I was to have found her. Shauna was always very responsive and extremely patient with me as the venue and date of the elopement changed many times. Shauna had amazing advice and knew how to coordinate services and the day of so that my husband and I didn't have any stress. Shauna is professional and organized but truly I was left in awe of her talents with design and decor. She took the hodge podge of decor items that I had bought and transformed them into a cohesive and gorgeous venue and dinner space. Shauna saved the day multiple times and helped me get into my wedding dress. Needless to say I recommend J29 events wholeheartedly!

  • 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, ... Read more

  • 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.

  • To say Shauna and her team are incredible, is an understatement. Shauna helped us design and plan our day, and execute everything flawlessly. She handled all of our day of coordination and setup/design of our wedding. I am a very picky person but she responded quickly and perfectly to every one of my texts and emails asking for opinions and insight on things. She is amazing! She helped me feel at ease when the wedding stress really got to me (which it inevitably always does!). The best part about working with J29 and her team is that they felt like friends. I felt so comfortable talking with her candidly about anything and she was always willing to give me honest opinions about costs of things and the design. She handled everything with such ease. I can't recommend her and her team enough. I don't know what I would have done without her!

  • When planning a wedding it's so important to be able to depend on someone who has a clear vision and can execute it. I was so happy to find Shauna as she definitely has those qualities and more! I recommend her for any wedding or fine event for planning and coordination. She will help make your dream a reality.

  • 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!

    responded with the following comments.

    Cynthia, we’re extremely sorry that you had a difficult experience. We discussed this and I refunded your money minus work done. Nicole left our team immediately following this incident and hasn’t been with us for almost two years so I’m surprised to get a review this long afterwards. We have a lovely team and work very hard to make sure our clients have a lovely experience!

  • We signed a contract with this company, and Nicole specifically, for "day of" planning which entitled us to get in contact with her 2 weeks out and get her help planning our wedding day. When the time came for communication to begin Nicole was nowhere to be found and ignored countless calls, emails, and texts from multiple people in our wedding, including my bride, for a week before calling back and acting like her totally ditching us until a few days before our wedding was no big deal. She did nothing for us- literally not one single thing. She showed up on Friday night for the rehearsal dinner in gym clothes and looked unprofessional and totally inappropriate for a wedding. On Saturday highlights of her behavior included stealing the golf cart of a random family that was also staying on the grounds, refusing to drive anyone in the wedding party anywhere despite being asked, and literally disappearing to who knows where to hide so she didn't have to do anything. She also left be... Read more
