Emee and her team did a fantastic job keeping our conference organized and running smoothly. 5 plus stars for this brilliant and highly talented team!

Emee is exceptionally well organized and brings an air of ease to even the most elaborate of celebrations. I’ve had the privilege of providing music for some of the events that Emee has coordinated for nearly 15 years and they are always top notch. She is an incredibly well respected member of the Portland wedding community.

Emee was amazing through our whole event timeline. She was always prepared and had things very thought out. During our event, I had so much confidence that everything was under control. She is very poised and good at what she does.

Emee and her team are amazing! They are professional, responsive, creative, and wedding life savers! The first thing on the wedding list was to find a coordinator and Emee was the first choice out of 4 interviews and countless reviews of other coordinators. She had a very calm and collected demeanor while also being enthusiastic and provided a lot of ideas that fit within our budget. Emee also acted as a mediator between the differing ideas my husband and I had, in a very compassionate way. We really wanted a coordinator that would take care of the craziness that can happen behind the scenes so that my husband and I, as well as our family members, wouldn't have to worry about it. Intuitively, I knew there were things that Emee was probably saving from fires that I didn't have to deal with, and that was a God send. She even moved twinkle lights from another area to cover a window and it became a very cute back drop. It was obvious that she has a lot of experiences with planning events and is able to think outside of the box and be quick in action. She really worked with our budget and helped to create something that was unique to us. A lot of the vendors we used were through her suggestions and those turned out fantastic as well. We are overwhelmed with joy at how amazing our wedding turned out and reflected us as a couple, and Emee and her team were key components to making that possible.

Emee and her team were incredible, silent assassins at their finest. I opted for the "day of" service since I really just needed help at the end, paying vendors, set up and the overall orchestration of the day. Emee was able to wrangle our family using stern, but likeable demeanor. I can't imagine how stressful the day would have been without their help. My husband and I were married at The Hotel DeLuxe on 9/5/15. We returned home from our 1-year anniversary trip to find a card from EJP, congratulating us on our first year of marriage. Class act all the way around, hire them.

I worked many times with EJP Events, and her whole staff is friendly, efficient and gets the job done. Great communication before the event translates to an event that runs without stress.

I'm a wedding photographer and I had the honor of working along side Emee & Katherine at the beginning of the month. They were such a blast to work with. I normally have such bad experiences working with wedding coordinators. Emee and Katherine were very professional and helped keep the wedding together. They were never in my way or telling me what to, which is normally what I experience with other coordinators. They were also fun. I got photos of them on the dance floor with the bride and guests! That's what I call awesome wedding planners! If you're getting married and considering EJP Events, I highly recommend them. They're hands down the best!

Extremely talented, very professional and easy to communicate with. Every event I worked with Emee has been a success. She is one of the most experienced and professional planners I worked with.

Emee is a dream to work with. She has a wonderful team of assistants who were easy to work with and together they made my day unforgettable. Her hard work was a huge load off for me during a very busy time...I can't thank her enough for providing such a wonderful service.

We had a wonderful experience working with Emee & The EJP team . We were looking for organized , detailed oriented & professional team and we got them.
Must say they made it successful with a planning of four months for a Big fat Indian wedding of 250 people....A destination wedding & a beautiful one in Portland !!
Much thanks & gratitude.

Because we live on the east coast, my daughter and her fiance needed to make most of the decisions for her beautiful Mt. Hood wedding. Working with Emee was far and above one of the most important and best decisions they made. Emee is incredibly organized, creative, and professional; her calm demeanor allowed all of us to relax and enjoy every minute of that special day.

Emee was the lynch pin of my wedding planning process. I decided to plan an out of town ceremony and reception and if it wasn't for her and Katherine and the rest of EJP Events myself and my mother (who lives in PDX) would have gone bananas. She was absolutely up for entertaining all of my quirky additions and totally talked both myself and my mom off some serious pre-wedding cliffs before the big day. Planning a wedding, especially an out of town one, is a monumental task and you really cannot put a price on sanity. What we paid Emee seems like a relative steal for being able to have the wedding I always wanted and walk away without ever having had a Bridezilla-style meltdown. Emee and EJP Events are a vital part of any wedding planning process!

EJP Events Q&A

EJP Events Q&A

What do you love most about your job?

I love that moment when everything fits together like a puzzle dropping into place. I love watching from the wings while yet another successful event unfolds, and guests are happy, well-fed, and connected -- having a wonderful experience they'll remember always.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I saw an opportunity in the hospitality industry to bring my knowledge of hotels and catering together with a calm and logical bearing that was very different at the time from the highly dramatic and performative events services that existed in 1999. It has worked because there is definitely a client base out there that values our calm, logical, systematic approach that is coupled with a loving attention to authenticity and the details of each client's personal story and what they're bringing to the event.

Why should our clients choose you?

You should choose EJP Events if you are interested in a high quality event and getting the best outcome; and if you care about what your memory of the event 25 years down the road will be. If you appreciate a thoughtful, educated approach to event planning, we'll be a great fit! Our clients understand that their event is an investment in memory making. Our clients care deeply about how their event turns out, and are emotionally and financially invested in offering a great experience for their guests.

EJP Events Services

Venue Search Services

Let's face it, finding an event venue can be very confusing. Some locations charge a seemingly-low rental fee, but then you have to bring in (and coordinate!) a lot of rental equipment like tables, chairs, dishes and linens, and the ever-growing list of hidden costs is worrying. Some locations seem to have everything, but have a food and beverage minimum and you wonder if you’re going to be able to meet it. And some locations have a high rental fee, off-site catering and you still need to get rentals, kitchen equipment and Lord knows what – making these sites seem undesirable...Or are they? Enter EJP Events. We are an event and wedding planning company based in Portland, Oregon since 2002. We know just about every venue in the Portland metro area, and have planned events at hundreds of locations, so we know what things cost and what a real wedding budget looks like. Most importantly, after a short consultation with you, we’ll be able to suggest your perfect wedding or event venue based on your purpose and budget. Name your budget and we give you the right locations to consider. Imagine having everything done for you. Imagine getting a list of venues that would be just right for your wedding, without having to spend dozens of hours on the internet and playing phone tag trying to get a hold of the right person at the right venue. Imagine having a trusted advisor create a spreadsheet for you comparing all your venues side by side so you can see down to the last dollar and criterion, which venue will be the best one for your needs. It sounds great, but what does all this cost? - If you will need a hotel for your group using 50 or more room nights over the course of your event (for example, 25 total out-of-town couples, singles, or families for 2 weekend nights), and you will allow EJP Events to coordinate and commission your hotel contract, then there is no cost for our venue search services, even if the wedding or event does not take place at the hotel. EJP Events is a member of American Express Global Business Travel’s Independent Consultant network, so just like a travel agent, we can book hotel rooms and other travel services for you at no charge to you. - If you don’t need a hotel, we can provide an up to 2-hour consultation to go over your budget and wedding vision, and then provide you with a researched list of venues that will be perfect for you, for just $175. You are then well-equipped to go out and get the best venue and do the rest of your planning on your own. - If you plan on using EJP Events for partial or full wedding or event planning, then venue search is included in our planning duties. So what are you waiting for? Give us a call or send a quick email today!

Recent Work: Gala for Engineering Firm

We recently produced a 50th anniversary gala for an engineering firm with offices in Portland, Seattle, Eugene, and San Francisco. Many of the employees in the different offices had never met, and the event was tasked with both bringing the various teams together; and celebrating the past, present, and future of this respected engineering company.

Recent Work: Destination Wedding for a Busy Baltimore Couple

I really enjoyed working with Gina and Abhi on their destination Portland wedding. These were two busy East Coast professionals with little time to plan, but the desire to have a big celebration for family and friends, most of them based on the West Coast. Portland was the chosen locale, so we were able to help them do absolutely every detail needed for a modern, elegant, glamorous affair in just six months. We handled finding every single vendor from the venue to the local Portland chocolate and tea favors on the reception tables. Obviously the more time you have to plan, the more deliberate you can be about your choices, but we pride ourselves on being able to help busy people streamline their decisions while still checking off all their wants and needs, and of course, having a great event.

Recent Work: Venue Sourcing for Portland Retro Gaming Expo

A longstanding Portland favorite public expo for classic and vintage arcade games brings in dozens of speakers and panelists. EJP Events assisted the client in today's changing hotel landscape, to negotiate and book their hotel room blocks, netting several thousands of dollars in savings, adding risk protection against cancellation and attrition fees to the contract, and gaining important benefits and amenities such as complimentary room nights, loyalty point bonuses, and room upgrades, for their executive team.
