Hiring Shauna was the best decision we made for our wedding. As a professional event planner myself, I have high expectations, and Shauna surpassed every one.
My husband and I live abroad and wanted to plan a 'wedding weekend' celebration in Portland Oregon - a party plus two days of sightseeing and activities in Oregon. Shauna planned everything. She set up room blocking, sourced and managed our suppliers, did our timeline, did our food tastings, and handled everything on the day. She was very easy to work with, incredibly organized, and a super nice person. Can't recommend her enough!
I would HIGHLY recommend Shauna as a Wedding Planner - she is an extremely professional, warm, and kind individual who absolutely loves what she does. She is impeccably organized and has the best contacts to meet your needs. All of her recommendations for vendors went above and beyond my expectations while staying well within budget. Shauna anticipated many of the decisions I didn't realize I would have to make and was very organized about laying out options. I will definitely use Shauna at J29 Events again and will recommend her to friends and family.
I wasn't able to help set up anything ahead of time, so I saw everything for the first time during the actual wedding, and I was overwhelmed with how incredibly it all came together.
For any bride or groom who is contemplating whether to spend the money and hire someone to help coordinate everything, even if just for the wedding day, I would say DO IT. I didn't think I would need help, and I know now that I would have had a completely different, stressful day without Nicole there. It was worth the investment, at least with J29 Events!
Shauna from J29 was more than I could have imagined for a wedding coordinator. Shauna was recommended by a friend (who happens to be a vendor) and I am SO glad she told me about her! I was immediately floored by Shauna. After talking on the phone, I instantly knew she was the type of person I wanted to coordinate our wedding. Shauna immediately gave 100% and was so into learning about us, the wedding, and our vision. She was beyond professional and worked so hard to coordinate a flawless event. Friends who were helping on the day of the wedding told me multiple times that Shauna pulled her weight and worked her tail off from the minute she got there until the minute she left. She kept everyone to schedule and saw that our entire vision was carried out exactly as planned.
Honestly, one of the best decisions I made through the planning process was to hire Shauna for coordination. On top of that, she is super sweet, warm and a class act. As a newlywed herself, I felt she really gets it as she was in the same boat not too long ago. I absolutely recommend her 100% to anyone looking for coordination or styling!
My husband and I LOVED Nicole. She did beyond a fantastic job with our day of coordination! We continue to say it was the best money we spent and it was. Nicole not only was available the whole month before but the day before the wedding we had another vendor bail and she found a better replacement than we could have asked for. We also got some great feed back from our family and friends who thought she was professional and organized which is a much appreciated trait when both of us are event planners ourselves.
