Hello and welcome to my little corner of wedding planning bliss!  My love for all things wedding runs deep, and I'm so excited to have connected with you at this unqiue time in your life.  The transition from a Ms. to a Mrs. is a relatively short one, and I'm here to ensure that your time as a fiance goes as smoothly as possible.  Please stay a while and explore....and please introduce yourself here!

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.

Ema Hadziselimovic

Portland Manager + Senior Producer

From a young age, I've had an artistic touch and a creative perspective on life and loved taking part in family parties! I was only so lucky to join the J29 team in 2013 and a year later had the opportunity to work with such wonderful couples in bringing the best day of their lives to reality. Guiding creative visions, planning with our couples, building new vendor relationships, and simply bringing it all together.... is why I love every event experience.

Having recently moved back to the PNW from the Bay Area, I'm taking time to reacquaint myself with my old favorite places and exploring new hot spots. I love coffee and chocolate - no day is complete without either. My family and friends are a vast tribe that span the globe and I dearly love visiting each of them and playing a "local" whenever I have a chance.

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. 

Originally from Los Angeles, I made my way to the University of Oregon. 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 love weddings. 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.

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 three 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 North Coast where nature is bountiful and the adventures are endless. You can usually find me at Brio Cafe where I'm a regular or at the local animal shelter trying to convince my boyfriend that we need one more furry friend.
