About Shauna

Born and raised in Portland, my favorite days are spent on the river under the cottonwood trees.  I love that Oregon and the Northwest have so many breathtakingly beautiful views - truly hidden gems.  My greatest joy is sharing these hidden gems with our couples and marrying their personalities and styles with our stunning surroundings.

My husband and I live in Northern California (think Redwood forest) with our little boys, and our golden retriever. Given that our location is remote, I often travel to Oregon for long stretches to work and spend time with family and friends.

After being a mom and wife, my true passions are in travel and design. I love working with our couples both near and far to bring their wildest dreams to life through design. When not working, you can find me remodeling our house, building forts for my little guys or adventuring outside.

Michelle Davis

Portland Manager + Senior Producer

With a passion for design and styling, I find great joy in helping clients plan their special event. My goal is to help you achieve the look and feel that you desire and to help you “put it all together."

For over 15 years I have designed, styled and developed events, products and interiors. Being in this industry is truly part of who I am. Some of my most favorite things are to-do lists {and checking themoff}, trend research, unique design, and all things pretty.

Originally from the Southeast, I enjoy mixing some Southern charm with the beauty of the Pacific NW. In my free time, you can find me on a road-trip with my family, at the farmer’s market or scouting out new must-try places to eat.

Nicole Coyne

Portland Coordinator

I've always loved creating great experiences. I'm a planner in all aspects of my life, extremely organized, and dedicated to making events as flawless and beautiful as can be. 

I'm originally from Los Angeles, but made my way to the University of Oregon where I earned a degree in public relations. During my time in college, I fell in love with the PNW and moved to Portland after graduating where I now live with my husband and our two cats. 

My career has been in corporate and office events, but when I started planning my own wedding, I quickly realized that I wanted to try my hand in the wedding world. I was honored to join the J29 Events team in 2018 to work alongside such a creative and fun group of ladies and to be part of so many beautiful events. 

When I'm not planning and creating, you can find me binge watching Friends, trying new restaurants, and exploring all that the PNW has to offer.

Karly Tarsia

Portland Coordinator

Sine I was a little girl I've always had a love for all things event and design related. From planning elaborate birthday parties with my mom to lending a helping hand in my friend's weddings and everything in between, I've always had a knack for events. 

A Portland native, I journeyed down south to college and obtained my public relations degree from the University of Oregon. While getting my degree, I found myself gravitating to helping plan events in any way that I could. Once I graduated and moved back home, I wanted to continue my love for events and dive head first into the wedding world. I'm so excited to work with the J29 team and bring your most magical dreams to life!

You can usually find me spending time wine tasting, hiking around the PNW or fueling my caffeine addiction at a local coffee shop.

Kerri Miller

California Senior Producer
A Florida native, I’ve lived in Northern California for five years and have had the opportunity to work with J29 Events for the past two years. I love working with new vendors and managing the logistics of the day all while keeping things pretty and picture perfect. Playing the calm presence on your big day brings me great joy. 
I love living on the Northern California coast where nature is bountiful and adventures are endless. You can usually find me at Brio Cafe where I’m a regular or at the animal shelter trying to convince my boyfriend that we need one more furry friend.
