why hire a planner

I started offering Day of Coordination services for weddings in January 2020 and have now been a part of celebrating over 50 love stories. In addition to weddings, I've also coordinated and designed many styled shoots/editorials which have been published and featured in local magazines and top wedding blogs.

what experience do you have?

Dionne Kraus Photography

I'm based in Portland, OR and yes I love to travel! If you want me to coordinate a destination event, it will require a travel fee. I always try to find the most affordable way to come and don't want it hinder you from hiring me for a project.
There are also bucket list places that I will waive or discount travel fees for. 

do you travel?

Lady J Memories

Absolutely! If you have something in mind, I will work with you to create a custom package for you. Every event is different and I totally understand that. Add on options are also available for my Wedding Planning and Event Coordination packages.

are custom packages available?

Lady J Memories

folks we love

If a company is on this page, it's because I've worked with, trust, and personally like these local businesses & their work. In most cases, we like each other too ;)
No one pays me to say nice things, so if you're looking to support some great small businesses, these are the people! No strings attached. #communityovercompetition.

Vendors of Color aims to promote racial justice & equity within our Pacific Northwest communities, and we also seek to change the wedding industry by uplifting, supporting and empowering BIPOC wedding creatives in the PNW and Southwest. 

Marcela Pulido and I created this directory and free resource for BIPOC wedding vendors because we wanted to create a space to celebrate diversity.
