Our Most Popular Services:
Full-Service Wedding Planning
Our most popular program at EJP Events. In this format, we work with you from the beginning to help set a budget and create a theme, brainstorm unique ideas with you, then research and book the vendors who can make it all happen. You’re reminded of important planning and payment deadlines. From time to time, you’ll meet with us and take care of planning or etiquette concerns as they pop up, so you’re always on top of things.
As the wedding approaches, we reconfirm your arrangements, troubleshoot logistics, and crystallize your vision into a final plan. At the rehearsal and on the wedding day, we ensure that your instructions are followed. Finally, we supervise the cleanup and closing of the site. We can even return the tuxedos! All you do is enjoy.
For full planning and coordination, fees start at $5,000 for single events in the Portland area with 100 guests or fewer. Additional charges are dependent on number of locations and tasks, number of events throughout the day or weekend requiring coordination, number of staff required, type of personnel required, and travel distance.
Partial Planning is a popular option for those who have their venue and a few other vendors booked, but need a coordinator to pull it all together. It’s also great for those who want to hand over the reins as the big day approaches. We meet with you to determine any loose ends and learn all about your wedding vision. If there are any missing vendors that you still need, unanswered questions, or “service gaps”, we can put our 20+ years of wedding planning expertise to work for you and get all of your issues addressed.
Then, the real fun begins! We review all your vendor contracts and help you put together an Event Plan containing your contacts list, a run of show/wedding schedule, and a narrative explaining your setup and design wishes in fine detail. Accompanied by a scale diagram, this Event Plan is a powerful tool to ensure that your entire team understands your wishes and can follow them to the letter.
We then reconfirm with all your vendors, and carefully oversee the details at the rehearsal and wedding. You may also take advantage of additional services such as setup or teardown labor, depending on your needs.
“Where do you want me to put these linens?” “Is this the table for the cake?” “Where should the band set up?” — these questions and hundreds more will invariably be asked on the day of your wedding. Your wedding coordinator will have your event plan in hand and handle these details for you, giving you more time to relax and get ready with your wedding party, and more time for you and your family to enjoy the day.
For most partial planning programs, fees start at $3,500 and depend on the number of locations and tasks, number of events, setup and teardown labor required, type of personnel required, and travel distance. You are able to work with owner and lead planner Emee Pumarega throughout your planning period, and are then assigned an EJP Events coordinator two months in advance. This coordinator is your go-to point person as the day approaches, taking tasks and burdens off your plate, attending and coordinating the rehearsal, and leading your team the entire day of the wedding from setup to last vendor departure.
Be knowledgeable and start your planning off right: we create your perfect venue & vendor list, a budget spreadsheet and planning calendar. You take it from there! An initial consultation, starting at $250.
We are happy to work with you to customize the program of service that will best fit your needs. Please get in touch!
