Portland Wedding Planners

Hello, I’m Alix! I’m a photographer living in Portland, Oregon. There are so many stressors involved with planning a wedding, but hiring a wedding planner can lift a huge weight off your shoulders and help make your day a piece of cake. When I first moved here a little over a year ago, I did a google search for planners, and realized how difficult it was to find a full wedding planner directory online. To help you out, I have created a nice little directory for you guys that includes wedding planners from Portland as well as the state of Oregon. This list includes the best of the best!

I was able to obtain descriptions and price ranges from a bunch of the planners (though not all) and even google mapped planners that have brick-and-mortar offices! Keep in mind that planners go by appointment only, but I thought it would be good to give you a feel for where some of their offices are located.

Okay, here’s the list of Portland / Oregon wedding planners in alphabetical order! I’ve also included their price ranges with $ being the most affordable and $$$$ being the most expensive.

Adornment Events

$$$

Insta: @carisa_adornmentevents

“Adornment Events is a collective team of event professionals that have been in weddings & events for over 15 years. Our most important

detail is understanding our clients, their style, and creatively finding a way to weave that into their event for such a special day.”

Aisle Ready Events

$$$

Insta: @aislereadyevents/

“Our goal for each of our clients is for the mood and the style of their wedding to reflect their authenticity, so that any one of their guests

could walk in to the space and know that they were in the right place. That means that our weddings don't all have the same aesthetic, but in

general we try to promote these universal style truths 1 | Smaller quantity, higher quality, 2 | After the decor has gone on, there should be

enough room on the table for the food and wine (which also will be beautiful) 3 | Everyone looks better in candlelight 4 | Invest in your

photographer - it doesn't matter how beautiful your wedding was if it wasn't beautifully captured. “

Bridal Bliss

$$$

@bridalblissnw

“Our passion for weddings, undivided attention for clients and creative spirit set Bridal Bliss apart. We bring a fresh perspective to

coordination and event design, and work with you and your budget to create innovative events with contemporary style and elegance without

the stress.”

Color Theory Collective

$$$

@colortheorycollective

“As a third-generation artist, I was steeped in the principles of visual design and exposed to the vigorous processes inherent in the

manifestation of an artistic vision: an unwavering dedication to mastering your craft, a disciplined work ethic, attention to detail,

uncompromising commitment to your artistic voice and the willingness to spontaneously act upon unlikely sources of inspiration.

There is a zen-like satisfaction to the design of a simple, singular floral arrangement but I am wholly captivated by the holistic

conceptualization, planning and execution of an event’s styling and consider event design to be an art form in and of itself.”

Gather Events

$$$

@gatherevents

“As designers, we create fresh, elevated designs that make an impact, believing that every detail should be intentional, every choice

with you!”

J29 Events

$$$

@j29events

“Lovers of love and all things unique, we work hard to get to know YOU so that it shows in every detail of your day. Together, we can create a

you and your style, infused with fun and good feelings.” 

Kamea Events

$$$

@kameaevents

“When you partner with Kamea Events, you get so much more than a wedding planner & coordinator. Not only do you gain a teammate

who’s got your back, but you get one who’s been there and understands that your engagement season can be one of the most exciting

ones in your life! You gain more time to focus on your fiancé, more time to continue dating your future spouse, and more time to be

present.

The engagement period flies by in the blink of an eye, so pass along the mental and physical stress of planning the most important party

of your life to us. Handing over the reins of figuring out the details and logistics lets you be able to just sit back and enjoy the ride. We

can’t wait to be there on your wedding day, after all is said and done, watching you and your new spouse have the time of your life along

your closest friends and family.

From Wedding Day Management to Full Service Planning - we offer a wide variety of packages to fit your budget. Whether you’re local to

Portland (like us!) and have dreamed of having your wedding in our beloved Pacific Northwest, or maybe you’re venturing somewhere

else on our globe, we’d love to meet you there.”

@madelinemooreevents

“We're the kind of event planners that believe in moments and memories instead of recreating the perfect Pinterest board. We beli

wedding day creating something breathtaking, meaningful, authentic, simple, natural and unforced.”
