  • 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.

  • 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... Read more

  • Hiring Leann and her team at Shine Events to be part of our big day was hands down the BEST decision I made throughout my year long planning journey. Leann is the best. She goes above and beyond to help you out, asks all the questions (that despite my best planning efforts had forgotten to ask), and made sure every little detail came together perfectly on the day of the wedding. I didn't have to worry about a thing which allowed me to just enjoy all the people who came to the wedding! The Shine Events Team are true professionals and very experienced - don't hesitate to hire them!

    Thank you Hannah! I know hiring a planner can be a big decision sometimes, so I'm really glad to hear that you felt it was your BEST one! We really enjoyed you and your families! Best wishes to you and Daniel!

  • Leann was fabulous! Being from Portland we needed the extra hands in prepping the big day on site, and she completely put our worries to rest and crushed our vision. We never had to worry about the vendors and were able to put all faith in her. Would definitely recommend!!!

    Thank you Emily! We love taking the stress and worry away! Thanks for trusting Shine Events! Best wishes to you and Zac!

  • Leann is not only highly professional, she is a kind and patient person. Leann was calm and collected throughout the entire process and made sure our wedding was smooth and uncomplicated. Shine Events helped us to organize everything! Without Leann and her team, the whole experience would have been far more stressful. Shine Events truly made our wedding beautiful. I cannot recommend Shine Events enough. Leann is undoubtedly one of the most sought after wedding planners in Central Oregon for a reason!

    Thank you for your kind words Nicholas! You and Craig are truly wonderful people. Thank you for trusting Shine Events to help and support you through out your wedding planning process, and especially on your big day!

  • Planning a wedding can get really stressful, but I was lucky enough to have Leann’s help with her month-of wedding coordination package. It is clear that Leann is very detail-oriented, thinking of so many things I hadn’t even considered and making sure she had a clear understanding of our wedding vision, then executing it perfectly. She had so many fantastic vendor recommendations, and always shared thoughtful insight when I couldn’t make a decision. She met with me the day before the wedding to look at all our wedding decor and took notes on where I wanted everything and how I envisioned it all set up. She totally nailed it the day of, and when there was a minor mishap with some wedding decor she did a flawless job at working around it. I kept waiting for something to go wrong on our wedding day since I knew something was bound to happen, but it went so perfectly, and I attribute the smoothness to Shine Events! Thank you so much, Leann!!

    Thanks Lauren, It means the world to us to hear how happy you are with our services! Thank you for trusting us with your wedding day dreams!

  • I really wanted to partner with a local professional and I really felt that $2,900 was a good deal for partial-planning services since I had already procured my vendors and venue. I kept telling myself it would work out and I could pick up the slack. Please note that I did plan from afar so that does have its own challenges. Due to that I should have proceeded with much more caution because I didn't have the time I thought I would on my wedding day. Well in advance Leann encouraged me to forego much of the DIY I had in mind so I could enjoy my big day. Unfortunately, assisting me with coordinating so I didn't have to to do it myself was not her strong suit. The majority of the package responsibilities are day-of coordination. It became frightfully apparent that Leann didn't know my venue or my vision as my wedding day drew closer. I needed someone that had pulled all the details out of me, coordinated with the vendors and the venue to bring the vision to life on my wedding day... no... Read more

  • First of all, if you have the budget for a wedding planner, do it! Second of all, choose Leann. Having someone I could ask any questions to or get advise on quality vendors she trusts was valuable. Having her there the day-of to set up, make sure everything ran smoothly, be a calming presence, and even run back to get my bouquet right before the ceremony when I forgot to bring it with me was invaluable. Thank you, Leann!

    Thanks Caitlin! We could not let you walk down the aisle without your beautiful bouquet! Congrats to you and Jon!

  • I worked with Leann on a month-of coordination package for our wedding. She was available to answer my questions along the whole planning process, and met with me a few times ultimately to calm me down and assure me everything was going to come together. In the weeks leading up the wedding, I trusted Leann to connect with all the vendors so I could put that out of my mind and focus on the emotions of the big day. Everything went smoothly the day-of and I felt like I barely saw Leann, which meant she was in the background manning all the moving pieces and making things feel seamless. Thank you Shine Events!

    Thank you Lauren! I'm glad that we could be there for you and Kip during this process! One of our main goals is to take the stress away, and it sounds like we accomplished that for you!
